When you can’t wait then there’s no reason for you to seek God’s will.

We have a real God who wants real worshiper not hypocrites!

The kingdom of heaven is within you. (Read Luke 17:21; 2 Corinthians 6:16)

You are the temple of God. When He walks within you, you can talk to Him.

When you can’t wait, don’t ever bother to seek the will of God.

In Luke 9:29-35 after Jesus’ prayed His face was altered. He experienced transfiguration while praying.

 

. . . 

JESUS’ name

(Read Philippians 2:9-10)

His name is exalted above all names so every time Jesus’ name is heard, all who heard His name will face downward. (Read 1 Peter 1:12)

We are privileged because salvation through God’s grace is given to us, by learning His words we’ll know more about Him. Yet, angels don’t know about the word of God. They are not privilege like us so they desire to learn the mystery, they desire to learn from us who already know or study the word of God.

God’s work must be done in His own way; if you are working it your own way then you are building your own kingdom.

You can never limit God on what He can do.

 

Conditions to see the heaven open/ visions of God:

1. Pride must dieIsaiah 6:1; 2 Chronicles 26:1-4, 15; Revelation 22:1-2

2. Humble as a little childMatthew 26:26-28; Hebrews 4:16; Matthew 18:3

There are 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit but only 2 can be found in the church nowadays. (Read James 5:14)

3. Without holiness, it’s impossible to see the glory of God.

4. We need to train our spiritual senses. (Read Genesis 8:21; Ephesians 1:18)

When your eye of understanding is open, you will see the spiritual reality.

How to open your eyes? Answer: Only through prayer. (Read Matthew 7:7)

Keep on asking, seeking, and knocking until the door opens.

“Prayer Secrets in Tabernacle” visit: www.jesusministries.org (Read Mark 7:26-29)

. . .

. . .

“Portals”– is a large impressive doorway.

In heaven,we are living a life because everything there is alive whilst on earth is just a life.

Like in Star gate movie, rings piled on another serve as portals that carry someone to other place.

(Read Ephesians 6:10-12)

Spiritual wickedness of the high place is the highest of the demon spirits. (Read Daniel 10:10-13)

. . .

. . .

Art of Worship

The hearts of the musician and the worshipers must become one then the glory of God will be in your midst.

Worship God in the beauty of holiness.

Worship is not merely singing of songs; it’s an act (bow down, kneel down) of reverence.

What we only have in church (clapping of hands, jumping, and singing) is the ritual of church activity.

(Read Genesis 28; Luke 9:29-31; Hebrews 8:5)

. . .

. . .

In America, because of the division of state and church, Christians must not actually protest against the state bringing placards, etc. because it’s not the power of the state leaders. They’re battle is not with the bone and flesh but of the spirit because it’s the work of the devil that deceive them. (Read Joel 2:28)

They must start to kneel and pray to combat the devil that’s behind those state leaders.

In the end times, the gospel will be carried to every nation through portals.Everybody will be carried away in the spirit like Elijah. (Read 1 Kings 18:12; Matthew 24:40-44)

There was a prophet who’s nowhere to see. His body was nowhere to be found even his dead body so his state thought he was dead but he was actually taken in the spirit and kept aside for future use.

(Read Revelation 7:9-14; 13:11-14)

. . .

. . .

VISITATION vs HABITATION

(Read Acts 12:15)

We pray with unbelief that’s why we don’t get our prayers answered.

It’s sad to say that these days what we proclaim, we don’t believe in our hearts. If we believe and our words and the meditation of our hearts are one, then we can see glory of God.

Let’s not pray like if it’s your will Lord, open the door but if it’s not, close the door. God is not a doorman. We are lazy Christians. We want instant!

. . .

. . .

Angels among us

Be careful with entertaining strangers. Angels look like human existing among us. You will never know they are until you’ll see them disappear. Be careful of your everyday acts, you might be throwing them away.

In HABITATION, you grab the King then each time; He’ll always be with you.

Like the movie Star Gate where they created a time dimension, we must create a portal for God to enter in our dimension.

 

Two elements to establish a portal:

1. WORSHIP – open the heavens, letting God talks to us.

(Read Psalms 22:3; Daniel 10:13; 2 Chronicles 5:11-13)

 

Act of worship

a. To worship is to prostate oneself or bow down; to do reverence. It’s a bodily act of reverence to almighty God. (Read Luke 7:36-38; Genesis 18:2; Exodus 24:26; 4:31)

b.lift up/ stretch out your hands

c. Bowing the knees

d. Prostrating on our faces (Read Revelation 5:14)

When you have praise and worship service, one song is enough to enter into His presence. Don’t repeat the same song for even 15 minutes over and over again because it will tire up or bore a congregation. Don’t mingle the flesh with the Holy Spirit. If you’re letting the song to be sung longer then you’re cooking the flesh. We must not follow old traditions.

(Read 1 Chronicles 29:20; 2 Chronicles 7:3; Nehemiah 8:6)

These days, churches were full of entertainers not worshipers. They merely show off their talents.

Worship the Lord in the beauties of holiness, in spirit and in truth.

(Read Isaiah 45:3; Isaiah 6:2-3; Ezekiel 1:5-14; 10:1-22; Revelation 4:6-8)

How are you going to confirm if your theology is challenged?

There are many secrets in the bible that we can’t comprehend. (Read 1 Corinthians 2:9, 10) How much more those that are not written there…there are many quotes in the bible that could unveil all the mysteries in heaven. The unveiling of mystery only comes from the Holy Spirit. Your post/designation in heaven depends on your spiritual maturity on this earth.In heaven, there are those who will be placed so far from God’s throne and presence as according to his/her spiritual maturity on earth while still alive. There’s no problem with that because we can still see His glory in heaven though we can’t come near to Him but the disadvantage is that He could no longer as what Jesus do on humbly knocking on our heart for Him to enter while we’re still on earth because in heaven you can only see his glory shining that you’ll humble yourselves in his presence.

. . .

An angel once said to a man who was thrown in hell, “God never causes anybody to hell. You choose where you want to go. Because you choose not to believe Jesus as your savior, the light in your spirit goes dark. Darkness can’t go with light. While you are in this earth; you have all the time to mature from wisdom to wisdom, knowledge to knowledge, glory to glory but the moment you cross the portal from the earthly world to the spiritual world, there is no opportunity at all.

While we’re still alive in this earth, we can repent, repent and repent and grow but the moment you cross over, finish. No more opportunity. That is why Jesus is delaying His coming and the angels are wooing the church to grow. You must rise up from where you are, grow up. Don’t be contented. Don’t focus your eyes on bread and butter. Fly like an eagle, soar high. Don’t be contented to remain as babies, rise up! You must throw all the tradition that you have learned all throughout those years.

2. PRAYER– establishes an open heaven. When your spirit aligns with the spirit of God then a gateway is established for you to talk with God. If you don’t pray then you’ll left God helpless.

(Read Ezekiel 22:30-31)

If you don’t pray, heaven don’t move. If you pray, heaven moves.

“Yada” is a Hebrew word for “Know”. It means we have to reveal everything to God.

Bear your heart naked before God and let God see what you really are.

(Read Psalms 37:4 “Delight yourselves in the Lord and He will give you the desires in your heart.”)

Your heart is like a rose petal. The more you are delighting the Lord, the more it blossoms and that your flesh will open and God will see what’s written in your heart and He will fulfill it one by one.

But, SIN creates a barrier that God can’t see the desires of your heart.

(Read Luke 14:6; 2 Chronicles 7:1-3)

When Solomon prayed, pouring out his heart to God, heaven was opened and he talked to God. We need to continually pray until the portal of heaven opens for the glory of God to come.

(Read 2 Chronicles 30:27) It’s wrong to pray for a day, then another day, or until 3 days then get tired and stop and say, “Maybe it’s not the will of God because I wasn’t answered.”It’s actually the will of God for us to reap the riches. You must keep on knocking, knocking and knocking until the doorkeeper gets tired and opens you up. He’d ask you what you want and give it to you.

(Read Revelation 5:8; Psalms 141:2; Hebrews 7:21; Revelation 8:4-5; Hebrews 12:23; Zechariah 6:13 and Revelation 8:2-5)

 

“Incense” means prayer

 

There are 6 categories of prayer before it can be answered:

1. Saints prayer of the earth (we believers are saints that needs to pray)

2. Earthly intercessors pray (Read Ezekiel 22:30-31)

3. Angels in heaven pray (Read Zechariah 1:12-13 and Revelation 16:5-7)

4. Saints in heaven pray (Read Revelation 6:9-11)

Saints or angels (as cloud of witnesses) are dumb to our prayers; they can’t hear our prayers; only God can hear us. Though they have their own responsibility appointed by God to have their own prayer, they don’t have the power to carry our prayers to God.

God is God of the living, not of the dead.

5. The Holy Spirit prays for us.

Each 7 holy spirits of God has specific function, appear like a flame of fire and starts praying for us.

(Read Revelation 1:4; 4:5; Isaiah 66:16)

6. The Lord Jesus prays for us.

(Read Romans 8: 34; Hebrews 7:25; Matthew 6:10)

. . .

. . .

When heaven is open, the heavenly beams abide with us and the glory of God. It takes place because of the cooperation of heaven and earth. Prayer opens the heavenly realm for the manifestation of God’s glory.

 

Hindrances from entering the glory of God:

1. Irreverence

2. Unbelief

3. Lack of fear of God
