Speaker: Neville Johnson
Session 1 – A new Generation of Rising
Job 28: 7 says, “No bird of prey knows that hidden path, no falcon’s eye has seen it.”
When it comes to spirituality, the new age movement has really stood in a high ground but what we really need is authentic new biblical path through the maze. The new age movement heal the sick, prophesy, read fortunes, understand science in the heaven and the earth, understand spiritual forces, lay lines and energy… but we have to understand that this is just a kind of faith but the real faith is far greater. Fear of Canto faith has robbed the church of true pioneers in the area of true spirit, of God’s kingdom. It’s time for prophets and apostles to show the way to the maze, to show another level of true spirituality. It’s time for us to take a higher ground.
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one can come to the Father except through me.” But the new age don’t understand this.Churches are almost retarded in the true spirituality. We are bombarded daily with new age aids like crystal which are spirit amplified by demons. Millions of books in bookstore…
We need open hearts. Truths which we never heard before will be revealed to the next few years. We need hearts that are hungry of God, determination to find our way to the maze and enter to live in the true kingdom of God while were here in earth. The shift is occurring now. The accepted norm of the church is not enough to enter into the nextlevel. We have to move from the status quo to the highest level. We have to have the hearts that are determined to go further. We have to have a pioneering spirit. You really need to want to go. If you have this kind of determination, you can reach the realm that God reserve for these last days. You can begin to walk like God that you never experience before–to walk with God like Enoch walk with God.
READ: Isaiah 8:19; 9:2, 6-7; Psalms 24: 6-7; Psalms 24:3,6; Psalms 102; Hebrews 12:18-25; Isaiah 9:5
You have to learn to hear the word of God, to be in the right place at the right time. We don’t die in the old nature.
Session 2 – A new Generation of Rising (part 2)
Isaiah 60:1-2 says, “Arise, shine, for your light has come and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.”
READ: Psalms 91, ‘Prophetic Psalm of the End times’
Luke 21:11 says, “There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places and fearful events and great signs from heaven.”
Session 3 – Seeking God
READ: Jeremiah 29:13; Psalms 57:7; Psalms 16:8; Luke 11:34; Job 28:7
Jeremiah 29:13 says, “You will see me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Psalms 57:7 says, “My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.”
Psalms 16:8 says, “I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”
Luke 11:34 says, “Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness.”
Jeremiah 29:14 says, “I will be found by you,” declares the lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you and bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”
Many Christians seek fulfillment in their lives from what they do. You can never find fulfillment by doing, by just serving the Lord. Fulfillment is not found in what you do, but understanding what you really are. You are a child of God. Your father is God. You came from a line of God.
1 Timothy 1:17 says, “Now to the king eternal, immoral, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever, Amen.”
Life begets life. We are spirit man. We are in the same kind if species of God.
John 16:27 says, “No, the Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God.”
John 8:42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but He sent me.”
Hebrews 12:9 says, “Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live.”
John 10:34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I have said you are gods’?” You have an earthly father and spirit Father but the spirit lives for eternity.”
1 Peter 1:23 says, “For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.”
Being born again doesn’t mean you could no longer sin. You’re still polluted with sin, your flesh can still be corrupted. You must be very careful with what you watch. Images, sounds, pictures—could pollute your mind.
What’s the difference between Adam and you? Why can’t we walk with God like Adam can? Why can’t we see Him….?
It’s because there is no problem between Adam’s body, soul and spirit. They harmonize. His mind is pure, no false concept or ungodly image store in his brain.The nature, DNA patterns with God does not sin like Adam. But you are different. You can’t see spiritual realm (heaven, demons, angels) when you’re still alive. Only when you die you could see all these like it’s natural to you.
Why can’t you see this spiritual realm when you’re still alive?
It’s because there is a veil erected between your spirit and physical body that shuts you off. You’re walking in the flesh and not in the spirit. The spiritual world is close to you though you’re already a Christian. Your mind can’t know God. It can’t see in the spirit. Your spiritual mind is imprisoned in an impregnable barrier that locks you out in the spiritual realm.False concept and era and so much unbelief are stored in your mind. Your body still have the ravages of sin within it. Be careful with what you see or hear. Every time you watch TV, more pollution is stored in your mind through the eye gate and ear gate.
How do we break this?
1. Hunger – hunger to walk with God in a new way. This is a very powerful force.
2. Determination – walks with Him in His way. This is a very powerful force like a strong desire.
3. Single-mindedness – that’s the only thing in your mind.
Every strong desire that emanates from you releases force. When you speak, you emanate something. The smell or sound is vivid or whatever strong emotion you have that emanates. This force can be recognized only in the spiritual realm.
Searching, seeking, hungering/ fasting, determination—this is not for a select few, this is for those who seek Him with all their heart—until you reach the breakthrough to enter into the spiritual realm. Only if you seek God, you’ll find Him. Seek Him with all your heart.
Session 4 – Seeking God (part 2)
You must determine to have the breakthrough and once you’re done with it, it’d be easy to maintain.It takes encounters with the Lord to condition you, to be prepared to walk with Him in your soul, spiritual or physical body to bring you in a place where you could continue the walk with Him.
Once you did it once and made the breakthrough, you have to believe that you can do it again. Getting the initial breakthrough is the hardest thing but once done, it’s easy to maintain. It becomes clearer and clearer walk in the Lord.
Your mind has to be renewed and the barriers have to be resolved. God waits for you to do the first move.
James 4:8 says, “Come near to God and He will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
The level of your encounter has to deal with the level of conditioning by being with the presence of the Lord. Drawing near to Him begins with Him conditioning you.
Major sticking points:
1. Systematic, regular consistent quality time waiting on God is required. It requires discipline. If you really take the time on waiting on his presence without interruption, ten minutes can’t be enough. You can wait even until 12 months.
2. You must not give up with something that does not happen. It takes time to condition you. It has to be a commitment with what you’re doing. All hell is engaged to stop you but there are also forces of heaven tasked on praying for you, encouraging you. God will set aside groups in heaven to pray for you that releases light of encouragement to you. It has to be a battle on both sides. What you can’t see normally is the spiritual realm working but once you determine to seek the Lord, you’re triggering something. You feel a very strong physical sensation or you can see the Lord but it’s so vivid.
READ: Exodus 21:2-6
There are degrees of commitment to God that has corresponding significant responsibilities and rewards.
READ: Leviticus 1
3 Levels of Consecration:
1. Dove level
2. Sheep level
3. Bond servant level (highest commitment)
2 kinds of servant:
1. Hired – they can quit any time or be fired
2. Bond – a servant forever, unpaid, no property of his own, can’t own anything, has no rights. They have holes in their ears which signify that they don’t want to be set free.
Philippians 2:7 says, “…but he made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.”
Revelation 7:3 says, “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.”
Bond servants of God are sealed on their foreheads.That seal give them immunity in the end times. When you come to that point, that crack registers to heaven and the door opens.
It takes time for God to clear the way for you. You need a passport to enter heaven, to enter into higher level. This passport is the bond-servant relationship.
“Lend me your ear for me to see if you have the hole in it,” says one angel to me when I can’t provide any passport to enter heaven one time I was carried spiritually in heaven.
People say, everything is by grace, but there is something we have to do, that is to seek God with all our hearts.
Session 5 – Visual Communication
All things around us are product of our imagination. God consider imagination as reality.
Ephesians 1:18 says, “I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints.”
2 Corinthians 4:18 says, “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
Imagination created the world.
Ephesians 1:17 says, “I keep asking that the God of our lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better.”
The eye of your imagination might form a picture.
2 Corinthians 5:7 says, “We live by faith, not by sight.”
John 8:38 says, “I am letting you what I have seen in the Father’s presence, and you do what you have heard from your Father.”
When you see something which you didn’t start, you’re sure someone started it (the Holy Spirit). We call it spontaneity. What is daydreaming? It’s something you started. If not, it either comes from the Holy Spirit or demonic forces. God communicate with spontaneous vision.
How can we tell the difference if it’s from God or from the devil?
Whoever is speaking to you has a personality. It’s demonic if it’s flattery accusation, destructive phonographic, immoral daydreaming. If it’s from God, it builds up, encourages, whatever’s coming through is pure because He teaches in truth.
Basically what does it make you feel?
Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
The flow of vision which comes from God is easy, not strain but light and gentle. Once it starts, we can easily embellish in it that takes practice and discipline and after a while came visions and dreams.
Is the flow of your imagination pure, kind, honest, just, good report or condemning other people? Majority of God’s communication to his people in the bible is through visions and dreams.
Acts 2:17 says, “In the last days,” God says, “I will pour out my spirit on all people. Your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”
The natural mind (reasoning mind) is a problem when it comes to spiritual mind.
Acts 18:4 says, “Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.”
1 Corinthians 2:14 says, “The man without the spirit does not accept the things that come from the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them because they are spiritually discerned.”
Romans 8:7 says, “The sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.”
Albert Einstein believed that imagination creates the world.
Proverbs 23:7 says, “For he is the kind of man who is always thinking about the cost. ‘Eat and drink’, he says to you, but his heart is not with you.”
3 Personal Interactions:
1. You started it or not
2. on-going or continuous
We have to be careful with our words and imagination because they have creative powers. Once you’re born again, they’re greatly empowered to be used either in good or evil.
2 Chronicles 29:18 says, “Then they went in to King Hezekiah and reported: ‘We have purified the entire temple of the Lord, the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and the table for setting out the consecrated bread, with all its articles.”
Isaiah 26:3 says, “You will keep in perfect peace in Him whose mind is steadfast, because He trusts in you.”
Imagination, in Hebrew, “Yetsa” means to frame a thing as in a picture to conceive it.
2 Corinthians 3:18 says, “And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
John 4:23 says, “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.”
Mark 11:24 says, “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have receive it, and it will be yours.”
Your heart is where your soul and spirit merge. Out of the imagination of the heart, are the issues of your life. You shall have them if you don’t doubt. It will change your conception or perception of reality.
Session 6 – Recognizing Signs
Visions, dreams, feelings/mood…
Our walk with the Lord is body, soul and spirit. You can begin to see physical signs on what you experience spiritually.
Hebrews 5: 11, 12 says, “We have much to say about this but it is hard to explain because you are too slow to learn. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!
Some things can only be taught to you by the Holy Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:17 says, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
How can we communicate back to the Lord?
READ: Matthew 5:27-28; Genesis 11:6; 1 Chronicles 29:18; Isaiah 26:3; 2 Corinthians 3:18; John 4:23; Mark 11:23-24; Hebrews 5:11, 13; Matthew 9:36; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 Thessalonians 5:2; 1 Corinthians 6:13, 19; Philippians 1:20; Romans 8:11; John 15:26; 16:13-14
We don’t fit the Lord into our schedule, we fit into His.
Physical sign is one way that God alerts us, to communicate with us.
1 Thessalonians 5:2 says, “For you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.”
1 Corinthians 6:19 says, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.”
1 Corinthians 6:13 says, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food—but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the lord, and the Lord for the body.”
Philippians 1:20 says, “I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.”
Romans 8:11 says, “And if the Spirit of Him raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His spirit, who lives in you.”
John 15: 16 says, “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.”
3 Types of Physical Signs
1. Symptomatic signs – direct attack of the enemy. It can be felt in the forehead.
2. Sympathetic signs–you feel empathy to other people.
3. Symbolic signs–sign of intercession. If it can be felt in the temple, it means God wants to teach you or you teach someone; if across the hairline, it is the joining of the anointing of your conscious mind. If it’s in the cheekbone area, it’s an attack of the enemy. (Micah 5:1; job 16:10). If on the nose, it means discernment of spirits (Isaiah 11:13). If in ears, it’s deception. (Leviticus 8:24;2 Timothy 4:3-4). The burning hand or the crawling sensation on the back of the hand is for healing.
READ: 2 Corinthians 4:11; John 5:30; John 3:19; 2 Timothy 8:11; Romans 6:5; Matthew 16:24; Hebrews 5:14; Psalms 23; Songs of Solomon 2:16
Jesus wants to live through you. 2 Things to accomplish this:
1. We have to die. 2 Timothy 2:11 says, “He is trustworthy saying: ‘If we died with Him, we will also live with Him.”
One has to give way to the other. Romans 6:5 says, “If we have been united with Him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with Him in His resurrection.”
One has to die in order to let the other live. You will have to be surrendered to the Lord. You have to be completely submitted to Jesus. Matthew 16:24 says, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”
Hebrews 5:14 says, “But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.”
Your ability to perceive when God is communicating with you, for us to follow the Lord, to show us what He wants us to do is manifested through physical signs.
“Resurrection power” in a form of physical sensation is given to us to help us in our walk with the Lord. Don’t make them for which they are not, use them because they are tools and because they are from the Holy Spirit.
1. Head – susceptible to anointing and also to oppression. (Psalms 23) Can be felt in a form of pressure, heat, pain or tingling
a. back of the head – emotional area. You’ll understand other’s problems or feelings. (Solomon 2:6) If someone is jealous at you, for example, with negative emotion, it can open up a channel for demonic attack.
2. Chest or around the forehead – perception
3. across the hairline – anointing of your conscious mind; intercession
4. Temples – indicate the anointing of the Holy Spirit if He wants to teach you or if you teach others.
5. Temples near the eyes or cheekbone – a sign of demonic attack. (Micah 5:1; Job 16:10)
6. Nose – Symbol of discernment (Isaiah 11:3)
7. Ears (itching) – confusion or deception (Lev 8:24; 2 Timothy 4:3)
(sharp pain) – lying spirit, someone you’re ministering lie to you or to God.
(burning) –hear from the Holy Spirit
8. Fingers – represent five fold ministers of the Holy Spirit (pastor, apostle, prophet, teacher, and evangelist)
a. Index finger – prophetic anointing on the person.
9. Burning in the hands- is for healing
10. Wrist (pain) or crawling sensation on the back of the hands – signifies the enemy is trying to cut you out from the Lord. You need to stand and fight.
2 Corinthians 4:11 says, “For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that His life may be revealed in our mortal body.
John 5:30 says, “By myself, I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but Him who sent me.”
John 5:19 says, “Jesus give them this answer: ‘I tell you the truth, the son can do nothing by himself; He can do only what He sees His father doing, because whatever the father does, the son also does.”
John 3:12 says, “I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe, how then will you believe of heavenly things?”
We must pray that you will be physically sensitive to the Holy Spirit. You haven’t felt yet, because you didn’t ask and since it is also faith booster. We ask to have senses to discern both good and evil.
Session 7- Becoming Still
READ: Psalms 46:10; Mark 8:31; Hebrews 4:9-11; 1 Peter 5:7; Matthew 6:28-31; Psalms 23:2
In the stillness, the revelation began to flow. Meditation requires stillness. You have to minimize the noise like children, cell phone or any physical tension. You have to be comfortable, not too comfortable that you’ll fall asleep. When you’re doing this, don’t pray for your own needs. You have to focus back upon the Lord.
Still yet focus (in quietness)
Busyness is barren (Isaiah 30:15; Psalms 23:2)
These days, it’s difficult to be still. It requires real discipline to make it possible. We mistakenly believe that busyness produces productivity. Busyness in God’s economy produces barrenness. The art of becoming still and yet focus is something that has to be learned. The problem is our lifestyle is contrary to be still. Contemplation is the lost art in the church because we are so busy, busy, busy…
Isaiah 30: 15 says, “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it, says the Lord.”
Psalms 23:2 says, “He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me besides still waters, He restores my soul.”
Psalms 46:10 says the Lord, “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
We live in busy lives, in turmoil. The environment of the 21st Century is not conducive at all to stillness.
Mark 6:31 says, “So do not be weary, saying ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’”
Hebrews 4:9, 11 says, “There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; Let us therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience.”
We must come with carefree state. Happiness is a choice.
1 Peter 5:7 says“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”
READ: Matthew 6:28-33
Commit your life totally to God and don’t be anxious. Quietness is a practice base on our trusting with the Lord, beginning to rest in inner quietness.
We need to have regular time when we get along with God. Therapy could be achieved by being alone. God uses nature as a sedative that calms the soul. Meditation requires stillness (children, phone, anything you hear that distracts your focus to the Lord)—you must avoid these. You can do this early in the morning or late at night. Sometimes very quiet background music can help but be very careful with using it especially if it has words in it or if you know the words because you’ll end up singing it. Your mind will go with the words instead of your mind doing its job and you’ll lose your focus for stillness. Be careful with heavy rhythm. Your physical body will start to sink with the rhythm. You’ll begin to lose the stillness. The enemy will then begin to keep you busy with thoughts if you start to wait on God. The enemy will take advantage of it. Thought has the mind of the flesh. You have to deal with it right away. Reject them because you’re dealing with the devil. Firmly command it to leave. Don’t let to throw in conflict with the enemy. Don’t pray your own needs. You’re there to connect with God, to focus on Him. As you get still, that tune of the Holy Spirit will begin to flow as you wait upon the Lord.
Physical calmness is just being in the presence of the lord. You’re in the present tense not in the past in the presence of the Lord.
Stillness can be measured in the brain.
1. Beta – 32 EGC – CPS (physical/ objective mind, conscious)
2. Alpha – 14 EGC – CPS (subconscious, no time or space limit, subjective revelation starts to flow; communication with the Lord is easy)
3. Theta – 7 EGC – CPS (painless surgery)
4. Delta – 4 EGC – CPS (unconscious level) – this is where revelation began to flow, dimension where you enter into visions
Below 4 to O EGC – CPS (dead)
Isaiah 28:11 says, “Very well then, with foreign lips and strange tongues God will speak to this people.”
1 Corinthians 14:21 says, “In the law it is written: Through men of strange tongues and through the lips of foreigners I will speak to this people, but even then they will not listen to me,’ says the Lord.”
Psalms 4:4 says, “In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent.”
Session 8 – Angels
Hebrews 12:22 says, “But you have to come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly.”
Hebrews 1:13-14 says, “To which of the angels did God ever say, ‘Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.’? Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?”
If you are born again, at least four angels are watching over you, ministering you. You can empower them by praise and worship. You can refresh them with the presence of music.
Holy spirits are internal but angels are external. Most of us have angelic visitations that we don’t even notice or not even pick it up. Sometimes God talks to us through angelic activity. You don’t have to see them but the voice is different to you. Angels are external. Once you hear their voice that goes to your mind to the spirit. They are beings of light. Their form can be human light. They can take many forms.
Revelation 12:4 says, “His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth.”
READ: Ezekiel 28 (fall of Lucifer)
Ephesians 6:12 says, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm.”
Daniel 12: 1 says, “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered.
Orders/levels/tasks of Angels
1. Archangel – for revelation (helping us reveal the meaning of visions)
2. Gabriel’s band (Daniel 8:16; Luke 1:11, 19)
3. Seraphim – (Isaiah 6:2, 3, 6, 7; Isaiah 4:4)
4. Cherubim– present because of the glory of God. (Ezekiel 10:4-5)
