The realm of true authority

The realm that is outside of this earthly realm is I believe, separated by some kind of matter that is like water, but different.

I believe that it was the judgment of the flood or something that separated the natural and the spiritual.

Before the event of the flood, I believe these two worlds seemed to coexist together.

This other realm seemed to be a very natural apart of this creation.

The wickedness was so great between the two that God had to separate it by some kind of a judgment.

The angelic beings seemed to somehow live alongside of the humans, in an interrelated kind of way.

Once years ago, as I was sitting at home, all of a sudden the whole atmosphere started to move, it was like someone threw a rock into the water, but the water was vertical, right beside me, right next to me.

As this started to take place, I felt some kind of spiritual presence coming through the rippling of the atmosphere.

This was not some impression or vision, it was visible, it was as real as looking at my hand.

I truly believe that this other realm is the dimension of the angelic creation in the heavenly realms.

Paul says that this realm of the heavenlies is in Christ Jesus? is not outside of him, its only found in him?

I believe a part of the restoration of all things is the coming together of these two dimensions as before.

When Jesus was crucified on the cross, I believe this event was not only happening in this world, but also in this other dimensional world.

The event of the cross was not just an event of this earth, the cross was an universal cosmic event, which effected every dimension of Gods created order?

I believe the early church was given access into this other worldly authoritative dimension.

Paul was a man who was alive to both dimensions.

I believe through the reality of this other dimension, was the reason the early church came into such an authoritative place.

As the end of this present age approaches, I believe this reality will again be accessible for the last day’s church.

This is the place of profound possibilities, unreal authority, a place that regulates the elements of creation.

When the last days church begins to once again manifests this power and authority, which is found only in Christ, then this world will truly know that he is Lord.

When Jesus said that you shall do greater works, Jesus wasn’t saying something which he didn’t really mean.

Through his baptism this was the reality that the Lord came into, but this is also the dimension that the lord dwells and is found in?

This is the inheritance that the lord has offered to the church.

This reality is only found in him, he is the pattern son over Gods house.

This is the place of power and true authority over Gods created order, which through the fall Adam lost, but has now been restored by our lord Jesus, through the victory of the cross of Calvary.

This is the spiritual inheritance for the church, but this is only found in Christ?

Hidden realms of spiritual reality

The longer one’s life in this world, the more one comes into the understanding that all things, which make up this life, are governed by some hidden invisible spiritual power.

What is this power that flow’s through this created universe.

I do wonder where this place really is, which seems to regulate all the events?

Yes we believers do somewhat have an answer; it is written in the scriptures.

But how many of us truly do have this ability to see beyond the written word, and pierce into the dimensions of the world that is spirit.

How many of us know, or want to know, that there is a place like this that does exist?

We look into this created order, which we are a member of, water, sky, trees, flowers, birds, animals, seasons.

We see that they are all carried by something that is so otherworldly?

We stand in wonder, what is this life force that seems to have no need from us.

Why do these things move so harmoniously, so effortlessly.

How can such things as this be so hidden to the senses, which we posses?

What is this strange mystical world, which one knows is real, but so far away, yet so close to us.

Maybe one doesn’t need to understand these things, but I seem to find myself standing back with this longing.

I must know! I need to know, I have to know!

When did this longing come? It’s real, it’s there, it’s given, its free?

One thing I do know, is that all the events, which makes up this present life, are in some kind of subjection to this invisible world that is spirit.

This strange mystical magical place, a place that does have an answer our questions.

We created creatures, we cannot escape from this otherworldly reality.

We are in subjection to this strange arena, which we call life.

All of our movements, which make up this life, are in some form of subjection to this wonderful place.

To me it almost seems that without this invisible world, humanity is just a blank canvas, waiting for the force of creative energy,

to live, to feel, to love, to laugh, to cry?

As I stand back with this understanding, I find myself in absolute amazement, how in the world can these things be so?

Yes we mortals call it luck, karma, and other such verbiage, but this is so all-inclusive to truly what is.

These mysteries, which we long to look into, they are not given cheaply, they are only given when one longs, one seeks, one asks, one prays?

There is a door, waiting for all who would come, all who would knock, all who would enter, all who would find, all who would understand, and all who would live?

The message of the cross

 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; 10 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. 11 For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So death is at work in us, but life in you.

16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self[d] is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.

by great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger; by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, the Holy Spirit, genuine love; by truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; through honor and dishonor, through slander and praise. We are treated as impostors, and yet are true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as punished, and yet not killed; 10 as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, yet possessing everything.

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which[b] the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 16 And as for all who walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.

I wonder if Paul was alive today, would he recognize this modern day gospel, which is preached in large parts of the world.

There is the theme, which runs through the epistles of Paul, which is centered on the message of the cross.

How many today do really understand what the cross of Christ represents?

What is this strange unknown language, which Paul uses when he speaks on the cross.

The message of the cross of Christ, is the central theme of the preaching of the Apostle Paul.

This theme of the cross runs throughout all of Paul’s epistles.

The message of the cross was not a teaching to Paul, it was not the symbol of his faith.

The message of the cross was the very life and history of the Apostle Paul.

Paul more than any other, revealed throughout his epistles, what the word of the cross really represents in ones personnel experience, in regards to the christian life.

Its what one enters into, through regeneration into a new humanity, which is of the Son of Gods love, who is Gods new divine order of humanity.

The cross is the event of baptism, the cross means that you are leaving one form and kind of existence, and entering into another form and kind of existence.

Leaving one kind of natural economy, and entering into another kind of divine economy.

The cross does not mean changing the direction in ones life, doing things a lot differently than we did before, being a better person in this world.

What the cross does mean is that you are now leaving a reality of existence and being, which one has lived in this life, and now entering into a altogether different kind of reality and being, which one has not lived nor known before.

The cross means leaving one form and kind of creature of this world, and entering into another form and kind of creature that is not of this world, which is an altogether different kind of species and creation.

The cross is the journey of the christian life, leaving one kind of a humanity and entering into another kind of a humanity, which is in this world, but not of this world, which is in this time, but not of this time.

The journey of the life of the cross is a devastating experience, to one kind of a humanity, but it is also a glorious experience to another kind of humanity.

The cross says no to one kind of a life, but yes to another kind of life.

Living the life of the cross, is living a life of something that is now leaving, disappearing, but also living the life of the cross is living a life of something that is now coming, appearing.

Living the life of the cross is feeling the pain, sorrow, and suffering of something that is leaving, but also living the life of the cross is living in the joy and great glory of something that is coming.

The cross was the the separation point of the history of this world, one history is now leaving, fading into the night, the other history is now coming entering into the light.

The cross of Calvary is the central pivot point of the history of humanity.

One kind of a humanity was completely rejected, another altogether different kind of humanity was completely accepted.

One kind of a humanity is destined for great glory, the other kind of humanity is fading into dark history?

Creation

Creation,

Living, breathing, expressing things of the unknown, distant reflections of a world beyond our time.

Mysteries hidden in secret places, waiting for the event of time.

Manifestations of the unknown, otherworldly events, not of this time, not of this space.

Creation, calling, seeking, asking, how long dear Lord, freedom, when?

Why, who are we to wonder? Do we care? Do we long? Do we believe?

Is there a day before us like the day behind? Are we in the middle?

Looking, seeing, knowing, believing, grasping, and yes, praying to one who is, who was, and is to come.

But already here?

Hidden in the new world of this present age? 

Rejoicing, loving, guiding, restoring, calling.

Do you hear him speak? He is calling you?

Can you answer His name?

He is Jesus, He is love.

Freedom?

This visible world is the reflection of the invisible.

This life in which we live, touch, taste, hearing, seeing, smelling, knowing, understanding, perceiving, feeling, Joy, sorrow, pain, pleasure, hate? Love.

We are all vessels of revelation, pliable in the hands of the unknown, expressing things that are otherworldly, but not of this place.

Yes there is a world, Hidden, invisible, in the Shadows of this our life,

Secrets, mysteries, unknown, unheard, waiting for those of this moment in this time?

Eye hath not seen, neither ear heard, nor entered the heart of man, what is to those who search.

Other world expressions, mystical creatures? Living beings.

Yes controlling, guiding, loving, protecting, and caring,

Eternal heavenly phenomenon revealed on the canvas of this, our time.

Humanity is waiting, longing, hoping, believing, asking, yes praying.

Who are we? Who look at each other in this moment that is ours in time?

Are we really we? Or are we they? Who are they, who are hidden? Are they really real? Can we see them?

What is this strange world in which we live and move, is it a real place?

Is it now, is it just a moment fading,,,, moving, leaving,

Disappearing into the night?

Is this really you, who lives in this moment of this time? Or is this they? What is the difference? Who are they?

Are we really able to share this moment and space? Or is it all ours.

Are we really alone here, living, breathing, speaking, living, loving, feeling.

Or do we dwell together?

Are we one, or are we two, maybe we are three.

Are we in some kind of harmony? Do we have true liberty?

Are we really free?

What is freedom?

Is it you? is it me?

Heavenly Jerusalem

So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone,    a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;the one who relies on it    will never be stricken with panic.

ISAIAH 66:8

Who has ever heard of such things?    Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day    or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor    than she gives birth to her children.

ISAIAH 2:3

Many peoples will come and say,“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,    to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways,   so that we may walk in his paths.”The law will go out from Zion,    the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

ISAIAH 28:16

So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone,    a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;the one who relies on it    will never be stricken with panic.

GALATIANS 4:26

But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.

HEBREWS 12:22

But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly,

The heavenly Jerusalem is a reality in this world now, it might be hidden to this world, but those that have been born into her, know that she is very real and now.

On resurrection day the Lord ascended the holy hill of Zion and established new Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is here and there, now and then. ( William Stringfellow)

Jerusalem is not found in one place, she is found in everyplace.

Jerusalem is in this world, but not of this world.

Jerusalem is high above this world, but not beyond it?

Where two or three are gathered in her, there she is.

Jerusalem is transient in time, but eternal in nature.

She has claims to this world, but this world has no claims on her.

She is holy, she is free, she is pure.

Light and darkness

The light shines in the darkness,    and the darkness can never extinguish it.

The people who walk in darkness    will see a great light.For those who live in a land of deep darkness,    a light will shine.

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.

anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light

You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.

to open eyes that are blind,    to free captives from prison    and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.

the people living in darkness    have seen a great light;on those living in the land of the shadow of death    a light has dawned.”

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,

I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.

This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going.

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,    because the Lord has anointed me    to proclaim good news to the poor.He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,    to proclaim freedom for the captives    and release from darkness for the prisoners.

Darkness is the spiritual fruit of death, Just as light is the spiritual fruit of life.

The kingdom of darkness is ruled by the power of death.

The kingdom of light is ruled by the power of life.

Jesus said that light came into this world but men preferred to live in darkness.

Jesus said that in him was life and this life was the light of men.

The true condition of all things that makes up this world is darkness, it doesn’t matter who you are or what you know, darkness is the condition of it.

No matter how educated or intelligent humanity thinks its self to be, his master is death, and the outcome of death is deep darkness.

Darkness is a spiritual power as light is a spiritual power.

Darkness is a condition of being.

Light is a condition of being.

To live in real darkness is to live outside of God.

To live in light is to live inside of God.

There is no other place of being, either you live in light or you live in darkness, the two are incompatible.

Light is alien to this world, before Jesus came into this world, all men lived and walked in darkness.

Darkness was the common condition of all things of this world.

Humanity thinks itself to be very enlightened with all the great knowledge.

But in Gods eyes, all this great knowledge and wisdom that humanity thinks it has, all it is doing is furthering the depth of his darkness.

Outside of the life of God, all knowledge that humanity acquires just leads him into further and further darkness.

This present world today is a self revelation of the enlightened man.

Man in his great knowledge is only getting further and further away from the light.

Without the true light of God, mans only outcome is deeper and deeper darkness.

what will this final expression of present day humanity look like at the end of all its ways?

Mans great bid in the garden to be as God, without God? Today humanity is reaping the benefits of this great calamity.

Humanity today is getting further and further away from the true image of his creator.

Man is now becoming an altogether different kind of a creature.

What will this kind of a humanity really look like in the end. God only knows?

The universal power of death

O death, where is your victory?    O death, where is your sting?

And the last enemy to be destroyed is death.

Together as one body, Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of his death on the cross, and our hostility toward each other was put to death.

When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned.

But God released him from the horrors of death and raised him back to life, for death could not keep him in its grip.

and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—

For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.

but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

The bible says that the last enemy that will be destroyed is death.

Death is the state of all things that exists outside of the life of God.

Through the fall of Adam, death has invaded all things, which make up this creation.

Everything that now exists has death as its master, all roads lead to death in this world.

The things which are invisible, the things which are visible, all answer to their master who is death.

The whole cosmos, which makes up creation, also participate and are under the dominion of this power called death.

When God looks at this creation outside of himself, all he sees is separation and death.

The all things that make up this life are now servants to this power called death, in the end death is the dominion and the domain of all things.

When one truly comes into Christ, who is the life of God, then one truly sees how real this reality and truth is.

Its not until one comes into the true life of God, do we really see how dark and hostile this place we live in is.

Death is a spiritual state and condition of all things.

When one truly comes through the cross of Christ, into the life of the true God, then one really sees and experiences, how powerful of an enemy this thing called death is.

One sees the depth of the hostility of the power of death.

Death is very hostile to life.

Outside of the life of God, death is the environment that is for all who are born into this world.

When God looks at humanity all he sees is separation and death.

Death is an universal force that is relentless, is has no equals outside of God, the only thing that death answers to is the life of God, which is only found in Christ.

We all by nature, live in this existence that we think is life, but really is death.

With the power of death also comes spiritual blindness, which we all have also inherited.

The cross of the universal Christ was the only weapon in this universe that could break this hard task master, which separated humanity from the love of God.

Christ descended to the very depths of death, to redeem not only mankind but also the whole creation.

I don’t think we are able to really grasp the depth of the universal crisis of the cross, in which Christ who is the life of the eternal God, had to suffer..

The magnitude of this devastation and calamity, which had to be endured by the eternal God of creation, to defeat this universal hostile force called death, was such an cosmic event, that it will take the rest of eternity to fully understand and grasp the magnitude of the sacrifice, which was given for the redemption of creation.

The day of the lord

For the terrible day is almost here the day of the Lord! It is a day of clouds and gloom, a day of despair for the nations.

The day of the Lord is near, the day when destruction comes from the Almighty.  How terrible that day will be!

It will be a day when the Lord’s anger is poured out  a day of terrible distress and anguish, a day of ruin and desolation, a day of darkness and gloom,a day of clouds and blackness,

“That terrible day of the Lord is near. Swiftly it comes a day of bitter tears, a day when even strong men will cry out.

But the Lord just laughs, for he sees their day of judgment coming.

Thousands upon thousands are waiting in the valley of decision. There the day of the Lord will soon arrive.

“I will sweep away everything from the face of the earth,”declares the Lord.

See, the day of the Lord is coming  a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it.

Will not the day of the Lord be darkness, not light pitch-dark, without a ray of brightness?

The great day of the Lord is near  near and coming quickly. The cry on the day of the Lord is bitter;  the Mighty Warrior shouts his battle cry.

Wail, for the day of the Lord is near;  it will come like destruction from the Almighty.

for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.

The Lord is at your right hand; he will crush kings on the day of his wrath.

The sun will be turned to darkness  and the moon to blood  before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.

before the decree takes effect  and that day passes like windblown chaff, before the Lord’s fierce anger comes upon you,before the day of the Lord’s wrath  comes upon you.

Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty.

The Lord thunders  at the head of his army; his forces are beyond number,  and mighty is the army that obeys his command. The day of the Lord is great;  it is dreadful. Who can endure it?

The eyes of the arrogant will be humbled  and human pride brought low ;the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.

Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land,  you who do what he commands.Seek righteousness, seek humility;  perhaps you will be sheltered  on the day of the Lord’s anger.

“The day of the Lord is near  for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you;  your deeds will return upon your own head.

The arrogance of man will be brought low  and human pride humbled, the Lord alone will be exalted in that day,

Therefore I will make the heavens tremble;  and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the Lord Almighty,  in the day of his burning anger.

In that day,the Lord will punish with his sword  his fierce, great and powerful sword Leviathan the gliding serpent,  Leviathan the coiling serpent;he will slay the monster of the sea.

Blow the trumpet in Zion;  sound the alarm on my holy hill.Let all who live in the land tremble,  for the day of the Lord is coming.It is close at hand.

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.

On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,” declares the Lord. “I will keep a watchful eye over Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations.

Neither their silver nor their gold   will be able to save them    on the day of the Lord’s wrath.”In the fire of his jealousy  the whole earth will be consumed,for he will make a sudden end  of all who live on the earth.

Therefore wait for me,” declares the Lord, “for the day I will stand up to testify.I have decided to assemble the nations,  to gather the kingdoms and to pour out my wrath on them  all my fierce anger.The whole world will be consumed  by the fire of my jealous anger.

These are some verses that speak on the day of the Lord.

I heard it said that two thirds of the prophetic scriptures are yet to be fulfilled.

How little does one hear these days, on this great day, which is called the Day of the Lord.

There is this cinematic theme to these apostolic proclamations by the ancient prophets.

These ancient Prophets were prophetic witlessness to this day.

These men were given special revelation to witness this once and for all time event, which closes one age and opens another.

These witnesses were not just speaking things that they heard, they were given prophetic access into these apostolic times, which closes this present age and opens the other.

When the Lord came to this earth the first time, every prophetic statement, which was written about him was fully without question fulfilled.

As his first coming, then also as his second coming, everything that has been written regarding this great event, will be fulfilled.

The Lord never allows one stone to be unturned regarding his prophetic proclamations, which he through the prophets has written in the scriptures.

This final once for all time act of redemption, is the blessed hope of his people.

This is the day that all the chaos that makes up this world, is finally shorted out.

It will be a dark day for those who live outside of the the life of the Lord.

But it will be a glorious day for those who call him Lord.

This is the day that the warriors cry out bitterly, spare thy people oh Lord!

This is the hope of all creation, this is what all those who have gone before us are waiting for.

This is the day of the honor majesty of the Lord.

This is the climatic end-time display of his great sacrifice, which he bore for humanity on the cross.

Even so come soon dear Lord Jesus, be magnified, for you are worthy, worthy is the Lamb!

What is the hour

14 Then I saw a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was someone like the Son of Man.[c] He had a gold crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand.

15 Then another angel came from the Temple and shouted to the one sitting on the cloud, “Swing the sickle, for the time of harvest has come; the crop on earth is ripe.” 16 So the one sitting on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the whole earth was harvested.

17 After that, another angel came from the Temple in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. 18 Then another angel, who had power to destroy with fire, came from the altar. He shouted to the angel with the sharp sickle, “Swing your sickle now to gather the clusters of grapes from the vines of the earth, for they are ripe for judgment.” 19 So the angel swung his sickle over the earth and loaded the grapes into the great winepress of God’s wrath

I believe we are fast approaching a new season in the history of this world.

“Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you unaware, 35 like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth. 36 Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man.”

People will be terrified at what they see coming upon the earth, for the powers in the heavens will be shaken. 27 Then everyone will see the Son of Man[e] coming on a cloud with power and great glory.[f] 28 So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!”

This is the day to be sober, things in the spirit realm are beginning to change, the trumpet for war is starting to sound.

We have not been this way before; new things are about to take place.

Rev 19:11,,14,15 And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat upon it is called faithful and true, and in righteousness he judges and wages war, and the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen white and clean, were following him with white horses, and from his mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it he may smite the nations, and he will rule with a rod of iron and he treads the wine press of the wrath of God, the almighty.
