“PRAYER is …”

maxresdefault.jpg

From dawn to 5 am today—I dreamed of:

Two spirits (one from heaven and one from earth) trying to reach each other’s hands to join force that if joined together could result to great/ very strong force…so powerful. Until, their hands met. They hold hands tightly though there’s unseen force trying to separate them—until their hands parted…got separated. Instantly, when that happened, a fire from heaven hit the earth killing some people. In the physical realm, I could see this as shooters or terrorists enter a school and started shooting the students. This means, what will take place in the spiritual realm will also happen in the physical.

I could see the very spot in the middle of the campus with a swimming pool, a fire from heaven hit the ground burning people standing, leaving no trace of their bodies…totally burned!

Then, chaos took place. People panicked. I could see bullets flying in the air, people are being hit and killed. But, we couldn’t see the shooters. I wanted to escape so I prayed to God, “Lord protect me and get me away from here.” So, I crawled while the bullets and bombs are still pouring from the sky. Good thing, I reached a gate at the back of the school. Look like an exit gate for me. However, there are strict guards/ armed men positioned there. I prayed again and they were blinded just like what happened to Peter in the book of Acts. They couldn’t see me coming out through the gate. Amazing! Then, I immediately managed to take a ride away from that place.

Eventually, out of my control, I was transported (by unseen force) like what happen to Philip in the book of Acts, back to the school where chaos is happening. I was told by the Holy Spirit to rescue those who are trapped there who was His.
Then, my body was transported back to the place I saw a fire come down from heaven like a time travel. This time, it was different. While the chaos continues, a mat and pillow cases suddenly appeared right on the spot where heaven and earth collides. I just knew in my spirit that I need to pray with them in that very place though bullets and bombs dropping could be seen everywhere. Hence, by divine intervention, we are not harmed. We are shielded by unseen force from heaven.

Next, I lead few young people to escape. We headed to the front gate. Though there are requirements in order for us to successfully exit in a legal way, and that is to bring a black marker to write something. If the bar code will turn green that means we can’t go out, since green means CR (comfort room/bathroom). So, we looked for the nearest comfort room to relieve (throw off the dirts from our body like urine, etc.)
As we’re heading back to the gate to flee for safe refuge, we prayed. We thought if the bar code turned RED that means STOP and we can’t do our safe exit. So as we pass through the X-ray as of airport X-rays with NUPs (non-uniform personnel) eyeing on us, the bar code turned black which coincides our marker. Finally, we’re safe away from that chaotic place.

WISDOM:
1. Our prayer is our shield.
READ

Ephesians 6: 16

, “16Above all, lift up the [protective] shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”

2. Our prayer is like an umbilical cord connecting the physical/earthly realm to the spiritual/heavenly realm because in

Philippians 2:9-11

, it says, “9 For this reason also [because He obeyed and so completely humbled Himself], God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus [b]EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW [in submission], of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess and openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord (sovereign God), to the glory of God the Father.”

3. Our constant prayer could be a strong force like a fuel for company of heavenly armies in the spiritual realm against the enemy/evil forces.

READ Ephesians 6:18

“With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.”

READ

Ephesians 6:12

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

4. We must be cleaned, relieved from all the dirts inside of us to come out safely.

READ

Mark 2:22

“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins—and the wine is destroyed, and so are the skins. But new wine is for fresh wineskins.” -ESV

5. The wisdom of the marker (black marker and the GREEN bar code which signifies to relieve from dirt in my dream) revealed to me quoted in ….

Revelation 21:27

“Nothing that defiles or profanes or is unwashed will ever enter it, nor anyone who practices abominations [detestable, morally repugnant things] and lying, but only those [will be admitted] whose names have been written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”

To God be the glory!

Dream today: Heaven and lake of fire

Screen-Shot-2015-03-01-at-3.05.53-PM.png

March 10, 2017 – My dream today from dawn to morning.

A. I was riding a public transit (jeep). When we reached the crossroads, the driver deceitfully U-turned to the wrong way. I contested, but he didn’t seem to hear. He smiled as devil. But, a supernatural power stopped the vehicle so I was able to get away and waited for the right vehicle.

(Wisdom: right vs wrong direction; right vs wrong person or partner/s; the enemy comes only to kill, steal and destroy)

B. I and my mom need to go to the bank. Then heading back from downstairs became hard for me since I had a baby boy and a grocery – (rice) on my arms to carry. Then there’s a spirit filled young lady who helped me. She took the baby from me and put it inside her bag with ease and my mom took the grocery and carried it for me.

That lady carried us to a place we didn’t know. After a long walk, we entered in an old building with pre-school at the ground floor and apartment in the second floor. We need to pass on the stairs which looked fanciful and well fabricated with decorations on the outside; however its foundation is not strong. As we reach the second floor, we‘re able to rest inside her comfortable room.

(Wisdom: Don’t judge by the external factors and the way to righteousness is hard, but once you reach on top, you’ll find rest)

  1. Heaven and lake of fire

Then, while we’re inside that room, I was caught into a place where all I could see is burning liquid fire. Few of us were there: Moses, Aaron, me, Nick Carter and other Backstreet Boys band singer, Britney Spears and a loved-one so dear to me). We’re sitting on a fire-resistant white, soft surface like a mat (I’m not sure what it was like a rubber or a very thick material that couldn’t be burned) suspended above the running lava or lake of fire as if from volcano. I could not see the ending, there’s no wall, like we’re inside a cooking pot. However, we didn’t feel the heat nor the mat got burned.

We’re dressed in white robes or gown. Some of us are radiating or glowing from the light that comes from our body.  This light is a sign, a deposit Holy Spirit inside us so we can’t be harmed, especially Moses and Aaron. Accidentally or some unseen hand pushed Aaron making him dived into the lava or lake of fire underneath us. But, he was not hurt nor burned because of his white gown and the light inside him. He got wet and climbed back as if he just dived from the swimming pool of water.

Suddenly, Jesus appeared from nowhere. He’s walking towards us as if in the bible as he walks on the water towards the boat of Peter and other 12 disciples’.  I was so excited to meet Him, but my heart is a mix of fear, love and excitement. He’s such a huge man, wearing a white robe/ gown like us.

The Holy Spirit spoke to me the reason why we’re there, in that horrifying place.  It was to purify us like gold purified through fire. When Jesus turned towards me, staring at me, He’s smiling and full of love. And, I was like a baby or an infant giggling to Him saying, “Hi Jesus!” But He said nothing. Instead, His aura changed as He turned to the other person sitting next to me (members of Backstreet boys). His face was full of compassion and sadness. We communicate with the language of heaven, not with words but with our minds and hearts, so we understood what He wanted to say.

U5drkFvFwvh1zGz5DKc3ZrdVD7mgTJ7_1680x8400.jpg

I understood that singers like them who particularly sing love songs break His heart, because those songs we’re not for Him. Even, Britney Spears who’s also there sitting with us were warned. But Jesus at that moment is so gracious and compassionate. He didn’t want anyone to be thrown into the lake of fire unprotected — those who were not wearing white robe or gown. Because obviously, if they will be submerged into the lake of fire, they’ll got burned. So Jesus gave them the grace; there’s still time to turn back to Him.

The last person I saw Jesus caught attention to was one of my loved-one. She came in as if she’s attending an interview wearing her best suit (blouse and pants) and bringing with her her laptop, Smartphone and pen. I don’t know what happened next.

(Wisdom: Those who love the world or the things of the world are enemies of God.)

Next. My spirit was carried to heaven. Then, I was flying in the sky. I could see very thick clouds and suddenly a particular picture appeared. It reads, “LOVE.” Not only that, it was meant LOVE and felt LOVE. Then I woke up from that dream. As I woke up, I pondered the vision I saw. Then I searched from the Bible scriptures that could support this great revelation, thinking were they biblical or not.

——

And…these Scriptures dawned on me.

 

Sufficient related Bible passages:

  1. 1 John 2:28– (Children of God)

And now, dear children, continue in Him, so that when He appears we may be confident and unashamed before Him at His coming.

  1. 1 John 3: 1-3 (AMP) Children of God Love One Another

“See what an incredible quality of love the Father has shown to us, that we would [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, we are [even here and] now children of God, and it is not yet made clear what we will be [after His coming]. We know that when He comes and is revealed, we will [as His children] be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is [in all His glory]. And everyone who has this hope [confidently placed] in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure (holy, undefiled, guiltless).”

  1. 1 John 4:13-19 (NKJV) The Consummation of Love

“By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.  Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.  And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.  We love Him[a] because He first loved us.”

To God be the glory!

 

 

 

The tree and the blessings

Cross_On_Hill_freecomputerdesktopwallpaper_1600

Dawn of October 8, 2015, I woke up from a dream.

I travelled back in time, in South Korea in the 50s. There was a Korean woman who’s having a daughter living in countryside. Two ladies came out running away from their house secretly. They seemed escaping. The Korean woman detained them believing they are two blessings. As I understood and see, the two ladies are angels of God.

Those young ladies were wearing head cover from the sun and that Korean woman also wore her own head cover.

Her front yard has tall and huge bamboo trees. It gave way to her as their master. Seven of them cut themselves, went down in humility and lay on the ground to be her bed. She lay down on that bamboo poles and automatically she was tied to them. Next, she was flown high as if the bamboo poles were balloon carrying her above the clouds. The sky is so wide and high. It could be frightening but she never minds it as long as she could take back her blessings. She said, “I commit to my destiny, to the Lord wherever I will be carried away by the wind and these bamboo poles to find them (two ladies/ blessings).”

She was now above the clouds, so high floating, or flying in the sky. I was frightened and worried for her, so I interceded. “I prayed she’ll land on the water, it’s safer than land.”

She indeed landed on the water but in the middle of the ocean. Good thing there was no waves but so calm and clear as crystal water received her. The bamboo poles untied her and set her free. She automatically swum in the sea and was filled with lights all over her body. She looked like a tiny fish swimming under water.

Suddenly large shark appeared and noticed her. It was attracted to her light. It was chasing her, wanted to eat her but she was so quick to swim and avoided. The shark transformed as giant black bear. It chased her with its claws, wanting to devour her. She was able to avoid it. Then another beast came, a giant chipmunk. She has two predators but she was able to avoid them.

I continued interceding for her. “I prayed that a seawall would appear so that she can be saved.” A seawall indeed appeared and she climbed up. She went back to her home and found that the whole neighborhood was looking for her, was so worried of her. A man yelled at her, “What kind of a mother are you, you just left your daughter behind! You deserve to be punished!” He grabbed a metal shovel and was about to hit her with that. The daughter was alarmed and stood in the middle and shouted to the man, “Don’t act like that, you don’t have the right to say that because you’re the one who’s unworthy…drunkard!” and that young lady became me.

Still in Korea. I was a member of musicians in the church. I was a trumpeter. When called by number, we aligned ourselves like in a military platoon and blew our trumpets. I’m the last in line.

POINTS TO PONDER:

  1. Tree symbolizes the cross of Jesus.   stock-footage-jesus-christ-church-crucified-crucify-religion-cross-crown-crucifix-lord-savior_bis
  2. When Jacob wrestled with God, he did not stop until he got his blessing from Him.
  3. Do Not Worry (Luke 12:22-34)

22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life[j]? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! 29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

  1. The Cost of Following Jesus (Luke 9:57- 62)

57 As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”

58 Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”

59 He said to another man, “Follow me.”

But he replied, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.”

60 Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and proclaim the kingdom of God.”

61 Still another said, “I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family.”

62 Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”

  1. The Cost of Being a Disciple (Luke 14:25-33)

25 Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: 26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple. 27 And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.

28 “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? 29 For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, 30 saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’

31 “Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Won’t he first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand? 32 If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of peace. 33 In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.

To God be the glory!

Bride’s walk

Speaker: Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj

images

Genesis 24:64 “Rebekah also looked up and saw Isaac. She got down from her camel.”

Amos 3:3 “Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?”

There must be an agreement between the bride and the bridegroom whereby there is unity and a covenant of joining together.

Matthew 21:1-5 “As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: “Say to the Daughter of Zion, ‘See your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”

Zechariah 9:9 “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! See your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”

Revelation 19:8 “Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)

1 John 4:17 “In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the Day of Judgment, because in this world we are like Him.”

1 Timothy 6:16 “Who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To Him be honor and might forever. Amen.”

Hebrews 12:29 “…for our ‘God is a consuming fire.”

Psalms 29 “Ascribe to the Lord, O mighty ones, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness. The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord thunders over the mighty waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning. The voice of the Lord shakes the desert; the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord twists the oaks and strips the forests bare. And in His temple all cry, ‘Glory!’ The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned as King forever. The Lord gives strength to His people; the Lord blesses His people with peace.”

God is a pure light, consuming fire, great commanding authoritative voice.

1 Timothy 3:16 “Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.”

Hebrews 2:9 “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.”

Habakkuk 1:13 “Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrong. Why then do you tolerate the treacherous? Why are you silent while the wicked swallow up those more righteous than themselves?”

Revelation 4 & 5

Philippians 2:6-8 “Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross!”

1. To walk in humility (lowliness and meekness)

One of the greatest lie of devil is this: “No matter how filthy you live but by just confessing the name of the Lord Jesus, you can enter the kingdom of heaven. Why? Because God knows that is your weakness, you’re bond with it”, Satan will say.

Leviticus 18 says that homosexual/gay lifestyle is an abomination in the sight of God. But in other countries people would say, “That is not wrong, it is an alternative lifestyle because God made you like that,” they’d say.

Have you ever seen a gay dog or a lesbian monkey or a homosexual donkey? Nowhere in natural creation will you find gay/homosexuality because all those animals have common sense. They don’t need 6th sense like us. Just a simple common sense that a male can’t mate with a male, common sense. Every creation knows that male can’t mate with a male and a female with another female. The animals know this very well. Look at the plant life; even they know this very well. The creation knows this very well except men who believe in alternative lifestyle. And there are gay pastors, gay bishops, and gay churches. I tell you in all humility that you will never ever find a gay Hindu temple, a gay Buddhist monastery nor gay Muslim mosque. If you claim that they are wrong, why is it that their lifestyles are godlier than yours? Why is it that they know that this is abomination? And why is that we don’t know? Simply because we are under a great delusion. Why is it that the people whom we labeled as heathens can live a godly life or holy life and we who claim who follow the One and true living God lives such a filthy unclean lifestyle?

2. Seeking not to be known – sign of humility.

In Buddhism, there is a teaching called Nirvana which means you take out all the senses and the desires within you until the very desire itself is extinguished. When that person reached that stage that person reaches union in Nirvana and enlightenment opens up. When that person dies, his soul become part of the cosmic universe and becomes nothing. Which means a person struggles so hard in this world to become nothing!

Christians struggle so hard to become well known whilst the Buddhist brothers seek to become nothing. What is the principle? Working very hard to be not known. The self is extinguished. This is humility.

The day you conquered the I-self, me-self and my-self is the day you become a true Christian because that is the nature of your bridegroom. Lowliness means “humiliation and low state” in Greek while meekness means “consist not in a person’s outward behavior only nor yet in his relations to his fellowmen, rather it is an inward grace of the soul. It is the caution of the spirit in which we accept God’s dealings with us for good without murmuring, disputing or resisting; to put this in one word it means gentleness.

1 Peter 3:4 “Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”

Proverbs 16:5 “The Lord detests all the proud of heart. Be sure of this: they will not go unpunished.”

Pride is the greatest of all sins.

Ezekiel 28:2 “Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: “In the pride of your heart you say, ‘I am a god; I sit on the throne of a god in the heart of the seas.’ But you are a man not a god, though you think you are as wise as a god.”

Obadiah 1:3 “The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rocks and make your home on the heights, you who say to yourself, ‘Who can bring me down to the ground?’”

Jeremiah 49:16 “The terror you inspire and the pride of your heart have deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rocks, who occupy the heights of the hill. Though you build your nest as high as the eagle’s, from there I will bring you down,’ declares the Lord.” This tells us that pride deceives your heart because it creates false humility. Outwardly it may give you an impression that you are humble but inwardly it is inflated with pride. You may not know it unless and until the all seeing eyes of God illumines it.

How to recognize that you have pride?

If you ever feel offended or hurt, it means pride. If not as big as a giant at least as small as an ant. But even ants run everywhere enough to destroy you. Why do we feel offended? Because we are conscious of our reputation. That is why when Jesus walk on this earth He said, He counted not His reputation. If you want to be clothed with humility, take down that stupid and good for nothing reputation of yours and put it on the floor. It can’t save you and you can’t even bring your name up to heaven. It will remain in this earth on the tombstone. Not even all the wealth in this earth.

If while you’re alive you have the opportunity to do good and when you refuse to do good, when you die what good is all dead if your coffin with all your money be buried? What’s the use? You can’t take it to the underworld. It will become illegal counterfeit money. You will need money printed in hell.

Tonight, if we can just be absolutely sincere and honest, you’ll just bow down and look into this heart of yours, you can see there’s a lot of pride.

Pride is the root cause to strife, contentions, divisions, murmurings, backbiting, and self-dependent attitudes.

Why do you want to talk about somebody else? Because of your pride. There is pride inside us. We want to gossip, we want to backbite, we want to create strife. This is a very serious disease in the bride’s life.

If you go around having an air of attitude that your pastor doesn’t recognize your talents or your church leadership doesn’t recognize your potentials. What is that attitude? RECOGNITION! Recognition is an outward manifestation of inward pride.

When you are truly clothed with humility, you don’t even realize that you exist because that “I” is no more there. The self is extinguished. One time, a prophet friend of mine share his spiritual visitation in heaven with two ministering spirits in heaven telling him that pride in the eyes of God is the greatest of all sins. Even God can forgive adultery. Let’s suppose you commit adultery hundred times and you turn to God, He can still forgive you…but don’t take this as a license to commit adultery because if you knowingly do that you’ll end up in the flames of heal. Even if a person does that God will still be merciful with kindness to overlook that because of the weakness of human flesh. But one thing that God can’t tolerate is pride.

Isaiah 57:15 God dwells with the humble people with lowly, meek and with contrite heart.

Matthew 18:4 “Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

Sin no more. Live a holy life. Know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

Matthew 23:12 “For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

Micah 6:8 “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Every pride that you overcome in your life increases the presence of God in your life.

Why was the Lord Jesus Christ able to be filled with the Holy Spirit beyond measure? Because the Lord Jesus Christ was totally dead to “I”.

The very fact that He came to this earth qualify Him to receive the Spirit without measure because He put on humiliation.

John 3:34 “For the one that God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.”

The bride of Jesus Christ must walk in humility like the bridegroom. If two can’t agree together how can they walk? If you claim to be the bride whose waiting for the rapture of the church with great love, I warn you tonight except you become converted and humble yourself as a little child, you will never enter into the kingdom of heaven.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

Secrets of the stairs

Speaker: Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj

MAIN SCRIPTURE:

Songs of Solomon 2:14 “My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hiding places on the mountainside, show me your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.”

If we delight in God, He delights in us.

Psalms 37:4 “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”

Esther 5:1-3 “On the third day Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the palace, in front of the king’s hall. The king was sitting on his royal throne in the hall, facing the entrance. When he saw Queen Esther standing in the court, he was pleased with her and held out to her the gold scepter that was in his hand. So Esther approached and touched the tip of the scepter. Then the king asked, “What is it, Queen Esther? What is your request? Even up to half the kingdom, it will be given you.”

When you delight yourself in the Lord, He will take great delight in you. At that moment your heart is purified, your minds are purified, all the selfish passions, desires once are all purified by fire of the living God. What will emerge from your heart will be a sweet cedar living sacrifice. And when the King looks at the sacrifice, before you open your mouth to ask, He will grant your desires. When you delight yourself in the Lord, all your selfishness die and only the purity rises up before the Lord. When God looks, He sees a pure heart, refined, transformed, purified like fire and He will grant all your partitions. He’ll ask, “What do you want? Whatever you ask, I will give it to you.” It will no longer be a selfish desire, a selfish request but a pure one.

And when you’re delighting in the Lord, Solomon 1:2 “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—for your love is more delightful than wine.”

Kisses of his mouth” means an intimate fellowship between bride and bridegroom, an expression of intimacy.

When you come and sit at His feet, why do we always rush through of a formula of quiet time?

I will tell you one truth, one of the greatest evil that we have in the Christian world today is devotional books. They are not evil by itself but they can become evil. Don’t get me wrong. I’ll justify my statement. If you take a devotional book and you read the day’s reading and you close your book and you said “Amen” and you got up and walk away, that book is an evil to you because you had made that book your God (idolatry). That book has replaced the bible. That devotional book has become your god. I use devotional books in my quiet time just to stir up my mind because they are very good. I like the Daily Bread, don’t you? I often use that. They put nice little stories that I use in my messages. But you see they also have Scriptural reading for the day that meditates the bible. You must fit the Word. Devotional books are good as they are that should write our appetite for the real meat that is in the Living Word. Don’t let them become your God.

So what do we do in our Christian life?

Throw away your watches, unplug the telephone, they are two greatest evils to the Christian life. Cp, mobiles, throw them away in the insanitary test. They are all evils that come between you and your bridegroom. They are little foxes that spoil the whines.

Song of Solomon 5:2 I slept but my heart was awake. Listen! My lover is knocking; ‘Open to me, my sister, my darling, my dove, my flawless one. My head is drenched with dew, my hair with the dampness of the night.”

When you sit in the presence of the Lord speak love to Him through songs of praise and worship, express all your love to Him and He will sit beside you and will throw kisses upon your face.

One gentle kiss from Him will wipe away your tears, will heal and bind your broken heart and console your weeping heart.

So what is the secret? Run to his feet. Don’t run to your fellow brothers and sisters asking them to pat you on your shoulder and encourage you in your self pity. Don’t do that. Why are we doing that? You know, that’s what we actually do. We want people to encourage us in our self-pity. I tell you, self pity is a sin. It is a sin in the eyes of God. Don’t wallow in self-pity. But if you bring your broken heart to the Lord Jesus and just forget about your broken hearts and just love Him, the very next moment, He will be right there beside you, put His arms around you with His left arm around you and His right hand holding your face, looking gently at you. He will just say, “Why are you weeping? I’m here with you.” And He’ll take your broken heart in His hands and just bind it and make it one whole and give it back to you. This is what Jesus is willing to do for you if you delight in Him.

How does a bridegroom call His brides? How does He call you?

He calls you “My dove.”

What is so special about doves?

1. Doves are pure, undefiled and harmless.

Matthew 10:16 “Be harmless as doves.”

In Biology, there is an organ in our body that defiles all our internal organs. It makes our internal organ unclean. Only the dove doesn’t have this organ. In all of God’s creations, only the dove doesn’t have that organ that defiles all the other internal organs. As a result the dove is pure within, that’s why it is chosen as a symbol for the Holy Spirit. Now you know why the Holy Spirit is called as “He comes like a dove.” There is absolutely no impurity inside a dove. She’s not only white in the outside, but also in the inside.

So who are you? He calls you “a dove.” Your bride, Jesus calls you “My dove.” If you are a dove, number one qualification of a bride, she must be pure, undefiled and harmless. Harmless means the absence of any evil intentions against one another in one’s heart and thoughts. Those are not words of love but of revenge.

2. Secondly, the dove is faithful and truthful to one’s spouse.

This is a very interesting character about a dove. When a dove finds a mate, both of them will remain absolutely true and faithful to one another. In them is this marriage covenant fulfill, “Till death do we part.” When one spouse dies, the other one will not find another spouse but will remain faithful and truthful and just mourn and mourn for the lost loved ones until he or she also dies.

Isaiah 59:11 Talks about the mourning of a dove. “…We moan mournfully like doves.”

3. She is single-minded in her walk in life.

When the dove set her eyes on her spouse, she will not look on another person. She will remain devoted and sees nothing else. How do we bring this to into the Christian life?

Psalms 27:4 “One thing I asked of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.”

Now look at the first part, “One thing have I desired of the Lord that will I seek after.” not two or three things but one. This scripture contains all the blessings, gifts and mysteries of God. One thing have I desired, I desired that and I will seek after that until I get it. No turning left, no turning right. Like the doves, single-minded devotion!

We don’t get what we’re seeking for because we give up halfway, we get tired of waiting. Do you know God is the master of waiting? We must practice waiting. Many Christians have good intentions as you have fail because you don’t seek and pursue after, you just fall short of reaching the end.

He that endures till the end, only he will be saved.” <Matt 24: 13>

If you desire the house of God, if you desire the beauty of God, seek, don’t stop until you find. Seek and you shall surely find, knock and the door shall surely be opened. This is the command from the Lord Jesus. Why is the door not been opened because we’re not knocking enough. You must kept on knocking and knocking until the inhabitants get sick and tired of you and they must come to open the door.

In a parable in Luke 18, Jesus talks about a travelling widow. He said, there was this widow who makes an application to the judge. He couldn’t care about the application so she decided to keep on knocking and knocking and knocking. Do you know, the woman have this gift. You have been blessed with the gift of nagging. But that’s not the end of the story. The end of the story is this, but you have used that to glorify the devil in your life. Nagging is negative. When you turn nagging around, it becomes intercession. Use your gift to intercede. That is why most intercessors are women. You have the gift inside you. Remember, I told you on the first day, you don’t know who you are, what is the inherent power inside you. The devil knows. So he made you use the powerful gift that you have negatively for destruction. Instead of moving the throne of God, you’re moving your husband, you’re children, and you’re driving everybody nuts.

In the early days of Dr. Billy Grahams’ ministry, he was just beginning to get popular. This was in the 50s. One day, he went to a town in the US and he had a week of revival there. The entire city was born again. All the borders closed, liquor shops closed, all movie theaters were closed, and they all got saved. Everybody in that town was in the stadium everyday for seven days and all the policemen had no job to do. So after the crusade, reverend Graham went back to his hometown and knelt down to give thanks to God. He said, “Lord, thank you for giving me a huge harvest today in those meetings.” As he was praying, the Lord spoke to him, He said, “My son, all the harvest I’m not putting it to your account, I’m putting it on the account of a poor widow in that town.” Billy Graham was very shocked, “What do you mean Lord?” The Lord told him, “For three years, this widow was praying to me, ‘Lord please send Billy Graham to our town.’ For three years, day and night she prayed without sleeping. She interceded for her town for three years. The Lord told him, “It was her intercessions that saved this town not you. You just came in with a sickle to reap the harvest but she’s responsible for everything.” Nobody knew about this old woman, the whole town only saw Billy Graham publicly but the eyes of the Lord saw her. This is the great weapon that you have inside you. So don’t use your gift for the devil, use it for God and before too long, your husband will be sitting in these meetings.

Seek after, be single minded in your devotion. Don’t give up. ‘One thing have I desired.’ If you sincerely seek the face of God, if you sincerely seek the glory of God, if you sincerely seek the house of God, don’t fall short. Don’t give up until you get it. You must have stubborn faith. Don’t be stubborn in your attitude. See stubbornness that is positive and negative. Use your stubbornness to move God. That is good stubborn. Don’t be stubborn with each other. That is bad stubborn. Many negative qualities inside us can be transformed into good qualities. Be stubborn with sin. Why do we love sin and we are stubborn with holiness? Be stubborn with sin. Why are you disobeying God when you could disobey the devil?! God asked you to do small thing and you’d give Him 1001 excuses. When the devil asked you to do a big thing you’d immediately obey. Why? Obey God, disobey the devil.

One thing have I desired, that I will seek after. I sought Him, who’s my so “beloved”. Do you really love the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart or you think you love or you pretend to love Him? This is a question you sincerely need to ask yourself and look into your heart. If you really love Him then you must seek after Him whom you longs for. Christianity is no longer a religion, it is a relationship.

Now, where is this dove? Jeremiah 48:20

She is found hiding in the clefts of the rock. That is where they make their nests so that it will be kept for security and safety, hidden from danger and since clefts are secret places in the rocks where normally people can’t easily find. Only doves know them. That is their security. Nothing can shake them. Nothing can move them, all safety is guaranteed.

Are you hiding in your secret place? Not the secret place of God but in your own secret place? Does God have access from the clefts in your life? Are you hiding your hearts, your secrets from God? Is there a place in your life where even God has no right to touch? Many people make a cleft in their heart, in their lives and they hide there and they will not even allowed God to touch those areas. Do you have that place in your life? If you are a bride, you can’t remain there anymore. That maybe is your safety; you like to hide there. Whatever may be your backgrounds-good, bad, ugly. Whether you are abused as a child, whether you’re molested as a child, whether you’re deeply hurt by Christian leaders, we tend to hide, build a wall around ourselves and hide there. And you don’t want to trust anybody else in this world and you don’t want to allow anybody to come near you and you create a secret place where you hide underneath where you even have set boundaries for God. A bride can’t be like that. If there is such a place like that in your life, you’ll never be healed, you’ll never be delivered. That vacuums if not treated will be destructive. It will destroy you, and all those who are around you and all those who come and contact with you. Forget the past, unless you are willing to let go the past, God can’t do a new thing in your life. I tell you today, 101 prophets can come and prophesy to you ‘God will do new thing in your life’, but I’ll tell you today from the word of the eternal God, unless and until you let go of the old, no good thing can God do in your life.

Isaiah 43:19 “See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”

Forget the formal things. Forget the old glory. If your church splits and you established a new church, don’t keep on saying ‘Oh in the past, it was like this…like that…’

Forget the past! Behold God does a new thing.

Does not the Scripture say, the glory of the latter house is greater than the former house? So why are you longing for the former house when the latter house is better? If God wants to make the latter half of your life better, then why are you contented to stay in the former half? Why? Why are you holding on to your past? Let it go. If you won’t, the healing love of Jesus Christ can’t flow. Many times, people are not healed because they are hiding secrets in their hearts.

The first night when I came to preach here, that evening as I was waiting on the Lord. The Lord said, “Today, I am going to heal many people, but there are many women who had wound problem, they have sin of unforgiveness in their hearts. Unless they let it go, they can’t be healed.” See, secrets that you hide in your heart, the secret places in your heart that you created in your heart and that you hide there, the healing anointing can’t flow. I have many records in my office how many sick people were not healed because of sin. And then they are healed when the sin is forgiven especially in the areas of bitterness. This was what the Lord Jesus Christ told me one day, “When a woman has sicknesses in the area of her womb, breasts, asthma, the root causes of this are bitterness, anger, unforgiveness.” This was what the Lord Jesus told me, “Whenever people come to you for such sickness, first ask them these three questions, “Unless and until they let go of this three, they can’t be healed.” And ever since Jesus had told me this, I put this to the test. Out of 10 women who come to me for prayer concerning sickness in this area of their body, 9 of them always said one of the three problems. Unforgiveness, anger, bitterness–why keep them when they are destructive? Why do you keep on to them as if they are your teddy bear to hug? They are not good teddy bears. It is strangling your life. They are not as cuddly bears that can cuddle. These kinds of bear are real bear that are tearing your life, your health apart to pieces. So why do you want to hold on to that anger? Whether you are justified to feel angry, bitter or not, that is not the issue, perhaps you are justified, that is not the issue, the issue is it is destroying you so why keep something inside you when it is designed to destroy you? Take it out and throw it outside. Today you’ll be absolutely healed. Whatever anger you have, whatever bitterness or unforgiveness, just let it go.

Is there a place in your life where it’s off limits to God?

If you want to be the bride, you can not dwell in those clefts of the rocks. When you want to be the bride to take the first step forward, yourself must die.

Matthew 16:24 “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”

The bridegroom is calling the bride to come.

Songs of Solomon 2:10 “My beloved spoke to me, ‘rise up my love, my fair one and come away.’ (Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.”

Why is He calling her like that? Because she’s hiding down below in the clefts of the secret places and the bridegroom is standing at the top of the cleft and looking down and said, ‘Oh my dove, rise up, come up, don’t hide there, come up.’ The bridegroom is calling. Come away from the clefts up the stairs to meet your God.

What are stairs? They are ascensions, order of ascension.

If you want to meet God, you know another wrong prayer that we all prayed in our churches is “Lord, touch me.” Have you prayed that prayer? But the bridegroom’s prayer is this, He’ll say, “I have touch you enough, you touch me.” This is the exact words that came from the lips of the Lord Jesus, “I have touched you enough, you now touch me.” You see, He look at the bride and said, “Come up.” but the bride is saying, “You come down.” It doesn’t look like that. You must come up. The bride is saying, “Lord, come down, touch me, bless me, and do me good.” but the bridegroom is saying, “Come up, my dove, come away my fair ward.”

If you want to walk with God in the intimacy of the King’s big chamber, He has a place. You know, you can pray anywhere–in your car, kitchen, in your bed, anywhere you like but there is a secret place of the Most High God. If you want to have an intimate relationship with Him, you must come there not He come to you when you are driving your car. That is different. Don’t mix the food together. That is different. There is a place by God.

Look at Exodus 19:20; 24:12 “The Lord descended to the top of Mount Sinai and called Moses to the top of the mountain. So Moses went up. The Lord said to Moses, ‘Come up to me on the mountain and stay here, and I will give you the tablets of stone…”

In this two Scriptures, God wanted to reveal Himself a magnification of His glory to Moses and He told Moses, “Come up the mountain and I will meet with you.” Why didn’t God come down to meet Moses? He doesn’t walk that way. Sorry for the bad news. He doesn’t walk like that. You come up. Why are many people, sincere as they are in their desire to see God? How many of you like to see the Lord? How many of you like to hear the voice of Jesus Christ speaking to you? Sincere as you are, why are you not seeing or hearing Him? It’s because, you have not climbed up, you are sitting down in your comfort and say, “Come down.” It doesn’t work like that. So He’s waiting patiently for you to come to your senses and know that He is the Holy One who inhabits eternity. He is not your slave. Many times when Christians pray I always wonder who is God because when they pray they sound that they are God and God is their slave. They said, “God go and do this, God go and do that.” Who is God? your slave? Do you know who God is? How can we talk to Him like that? Such irreverence…

Do you know that is the reason why I told you earlier, the charismatic church doesn’t have a clue about worshipping God in the beauty of holiness. To her, everything is just easy. You can chew gums and pray, you can chew gums and worship. These are all insults to the holiness of God. Only cows chew, you know. If you don’t believe me, come to India. They are called to chew. That is their calling. If you chew, who are you then? Praise the Lord. Do you know why the eastern churches have an intimate walk with God? Because we reverence God. The western church doesn’t know how to reverence God. She just plays with God. She thinks God is just a next-door neighbor friend like how you say, “Dog, I love you.” that same word she use to Jesus, “Lord I love you.” It doesn’t work but I will tell you one truth, that doesn’t diminish His love for you. He blesses you as far as His grace goes. But the moment you rise up to meet Him in His place, you see His glory. You walk in His glory. You talk in His glory. That is the place. <Exodus 33> Now Moses wanted to see the glory of God and this is what God told Him.

Remember I told you there are some loopholes in the laws of God.

There you will see scripturally, a loophole in Exodus 33:20, “You cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.” How do you think Moses must have felt when God said this? His face must have suddenly turned like a small little boy looking with great longing into his Father’s face. Do you have children like that? When your children have that kind of a face, can you say no to them? I have 6 nephews. When any one of them come to me with such a face, whatever anger I may have in my heart for them, will just melt like wax. So Moses had such a face and the Lord looked down. His heart was moved with wax. He said, “What can I do?” He created a loophole. Look at verse 21. “There is a place by me and I will put thee in a cleft of the rock…” This scripture is cross- linked to the Songs of Solomon 2:14 “there is a place by God…”

If you want to know God intimately as a bride would know her bridegroom, you must climb up the secret stairs to meet the Lord God where He is.

How to climb up?

1. Praise and worship. When you begin to praise and worship God, all the impurities in your heart are washed away, cleansed. Purification takes place.

2. Meditate the Word of God. When you meditate the Word of God, Ephesians 5:26 says, “God’s word is like water.” John 17:17 says, “His Word sanctifies.” John 15:3 says, “By my Word you were clean.” So when you meditate the Word of God, your mind is cleansed. Not only that, every one of us have one common problem when we pray–our minds wanders around. Have you? Is that your experience? Your mind wanders around the whole world. Suddenly you remember everything under the sun. All the hidden things all come to the surface of your mind and you suddenly remember everything and you forget the Bible.

Now, when you praise, the mind begins to keep quiet. When you meditate the Word, the mind is furthered bind and brought into oneness with God, you don’t just enter into prayer. That is imperfection. See Esther did not immediately come and stand before the king. She fasted for three days; she put on the royal robe then came and stood before the king.

Two stages–praise and worship and meditate the Word of God.

By the time you sincerely praise and worship and meditated the Word, I promise you, your mind will have come in stillness and oneness before the Holy Spirit. Then pray. In that state, when you pray, your heart will never waiver, your mind will never wander. You’ll be in oneness of heart and mind together with the Holy Spirit. This is the real meaning of the Scripture, “Where there are two or three gathered in My name, I’ll be there in their midst.” Not just physically 2 and 3. Two is your spirit and your soul and the third is the Holy Spirit, then you will become one. And the Lord Jesus Christ is there. And your eyes will behold Him and your heart will see Him. Your ears can hear Him.

3. Waiting on God. Most Christians practice the other 2 but this last stage, 99.9% of Christians don’t practice this at all or are ignorant of this. This is the foundation of your walk with God. If you don’t have this foundation, you can’t walk with God. Let me give you one example. In Exodus 24: 12-15, God told Moses to come up to the mountain to talk to Him. When Moses went up the mountain, he waited there for 6 days. Before God’s glory came down, he patiently waited for 6 days. Then on the 7th day, the cloud of glory came down and God spoke to him face to face for 40 days and 40 nights. Suppose you were there in that mount. First day, you waited on God and He didn’t come down. You would have received a ton of e-mails calling you back to office. You would immediately come down the mountain. Thank God Moses did not have a cellular phone. Even if he had, he would have given it to Joshua and say, “You take care about all the calls while I wait on God.” Look at this man; he patiently waited for 6 days hoping the next day God would come. He didn’t even know when God will come.

Do you know what’s the key for a great being great? Why is Enoch in our eyes great? Why is Moses great? Why is Abraham great? Why is Elijah great? What makes them great? Is it their great spirituality? I tell you the secret of that. They are great because they simply obeyed. Simple right? They simply obeyed without any questions. No questions asked. God told Moses, “Come and wait.” Period. There was no other tone in Moses’ mind, he only had told to do one think and he just waited for six days. If God didn’t show up and if He’d only showed up in the 40th day, Moses would still be waiting because the Lord told him to wait. The Lord did not say, “Wait for some time and see if I didn’t come, go back home.” Did He say that? He didn’t say that. This is our problem. We cannot obey. We always want to question God.

True Spirituality’s foundation is obedience. If you want to walk with God, you must obey. “Forsake all and follow Me”, says the Lord. If you forsake all, you must believe with silent simplicity that He will take care of you. He will, if you obey.

Now look at Jesus when He was on this earth, He did that. Matthew 14:23, Luke 6:12; 9:28; John 6:15, He climbed up the mountain, He climbed up the secret place, the secret stairs to talk with God.

Finally, while you’re up there, verse 14 says, “Let me see your face, let me see your voice, make yourself known to God.”

1 Corinthians 13:12 tells us that Jesus Christ your bridegroom waits for you to reveal yourself to Him.

Solomon 5:2 and Revelation 3:20 tells us that He knocks at the door, waits for you to open.

He’s waiting for you to reveal your heart to Him. Whatever is in your heart, open your heart and talk to God. Don’t follow King James in English in prayer; don’t follow grammatically correct sentences before God in prayer, talk like a little child to God. Whatever is in your heart, freely talk to Him.

1 Corinthians 8:3 “Love opens up your heart to God.”

The bridegroom desires to see your face, to hear your voice, to see your heart, open, unveil yourself, make yourself naked before His all seeing eyes and tell Him what is in your heart. Everything, hide no secrets. Between a husband and wife, there must be no secrets.

Holy Spirit and Fire

speaker: Sadhu SundarSelvaraj

 

God the Father manifested like a man but the Holy Spirit’s form is limitless. It can be a pillar of fire, clouds and lightning, streams or rives, wind or lights and colours.

Revelation 4:5 says, “From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings, and pearls of thunder. In front of the throne seven lighted torches were burning, which are the seven spirits of God.”

1. Rivers of living water (John 7:37-39 says, “On the last and most important day of the festival Jesus stood up and said in a loud voice, ‘Whoever is thirsty should come to me, and whoever believes in me should drink. As the scripture says, ‘Streams of life-giving water will pour out from His side.’ Jesus said this about the Spirit, which those who believed in Him were going to receive. At that time the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not been raised to glory.”)

2. Wind and fire (Acts 2: 1-4 says, “When the day of Pentecost came, all the believers were gathered together in one place. Suddenly there was a noise from the sky which sounded like a strong wind blowing, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire which spread out and touched each person there. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to talk in other languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak.”)

3. Pillar of cloud and fire (Ezekiel 13:21 says, “I will rip off your scarves and let my people escape from your power once and for all. Then you will know that I am the Lord.”)

It’s important to be filled in the Holy Spirit to guide us to all truth. If you ask a reference and can’t find it in the bible, you’ll doubt and say, “This thing is not of God.” If you come up with that conclusion, you’re going to miss the boat. The next time the Holy Spirit come it will manifest in the latter and former rain in a perfect storm. If the Holy Spirit comes like that and you won’t have reference and ask, “Where is it in the bible?” and the angel of God will start to write it in Acts 29…30…31.

You must be prepared to get wet in the rain. When that comes, you must throw all your “umbrellas” or religious concepts and box-up mentality) thinking that this and that is how God would work. So you’ll put up your umbrella but it won’t prevent the rain. The rain will still come. The only difference is you won’t get wet. You must start practising in the rain!

The Holy Spirit says, “He that is filthy, let him continue; he that is righteous, let him continue.”

If he wish to live righteous, he’ll walk like Adam originally walk in Eden with God. This would be given to the overcomer church, not the church per se, not to everybody. You can either live a life like foolish or wise virgins had. The choice is yours. It would be dangerous if the Holy Spirit stops encouraging you because it means the Holy Spirit has stopped its work of conviction. There is a time limit like there’s a time that spirit strives and then stop and He won’t go beyond that.

Revelation 22:11, 12 says, “Whoever is evil must go on doing evil, and whoever is filthy must go on being filthy; whoever is good must go on doing good, and whoever is holy must go on being holy.”

 Genesis 6:3 says, “Then the Lord said, ‘I will not allow people to live forever; they are mortal. From now on they will live no longer than 120 years.”

4. Lights and colours

Leviticus 8:8 says, “He put the breastpiece on him and put the Urim and Thummim in it.”

Ezra 2:63 says, “The Jewish governor told them that they could not eat the food offered to God until there was a priest who could use the Urim and the Thummim.”

Revelation 4:3 says, “His face gleamed like such precious stones of jasper and carnelian, and all around the throne there was a rainbow and the colour of an emerald.”

Ezekiel 1:27-28 says, “The figure seemed to be shining like bronze in the middle of a fire. It shone all over with a bright light that had in it all the colours of the rainbow.”

John 10:10 says, “The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness.

John 11:26 says, “And those who live and believe in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

In heaven, there is a “Zoe” or real divine life.

That Zoe life can either grow or die if planted inside you like a seed. It must be nurtured until it breaks in and comes out of you. After that, it will undergo process:

a. Zoe life must fill your spirit

b. it must break and enter into your soul then you can walk in the realm. If this happens, you won’t entertain even an inch of doubt.

c. the flesh must be full of Zoe life. Then, you’ll overcome death.

“Levitation” is the power over the air can be a physical manifestation of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 1:9-10 says, “After saying this, He was taken up to heaven as they watched Him, and a cloud hid Him from their sight. They still had their eyes fixed on the sky as He went away, when two men dressed in white suddenly stood beside them and said, ‘Galileans, why are you standing there looking up at the sky? This Jesus, who was taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way that you saw Him go to heaven.”

Revelation 11:12 says, “Then the two prophets heard a loud voice say to them from heaven, ‘Come up here!’ As their enemies watched, they went up into heaven in a cloud.”

Acts 8:39 says, “When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord took Philip away. The official did not see him again, but continued on his way, full of joy.”

Adam had power and authority for everything on the land, over the seas and waters like on how Jesus walks on water. But if you doubt like Peter had because you believe what you think, you’ll sink. The moment you allow your mind to think like that, so shall it be.

5. Fire (Malachi 3:2-3 says, “But who will be able to endure the say when He comes? Who will be able to survive when He appears? He will be like strong soap, like a fire that refines metal. He will come to judge like one who refines and purifies silver. As a metalworker refines silver and gold, so the Lord’s messenger will purify the priests, so that they will bring to the Lord the right kind of offering.”)

Isaraph (Hebrew) means refine; Habac (Hebrew) means fuller soon

In India, stamping, jumping and beating the clothes on the rocks scare the dirt.

The Holy Spirit refine our spirit, soul and body to make it clean. It’s necessary before your eyes can see the glory of God, if not; you can’t stand to see the glory of God.

Exodus 24: 15-18 says, “Moses went up to Mount Sinai, and a cloud covered it. The dazzling light of the Lord’s presence came down on the mountain. To the Israelites the light looked like a fire burning on top of the mountain. The cloud covered the mountain for six days, and on the seventh day the Lord called to Moses from the cloud. Moses went on up the mountain into the cloud. There he stayed for forty days and nights.”

Wait, you can’t say it’s too late for me to wait and say, “I have to go.” That’s why western churches are so far away from the glory of God and false prophets and teachers are sent in your land that tells you, “You name it, you claim it.” because you’re always rushing, you don’t have time to wait. You want instant! If ministers tell you to put your money here, your 500 there or your 1000 over there, believers would do because they are greedy for wanting a return. They’re greedy for short-cut wealth like in casino, have you ever seen a gambler say, “Don’t return the money that I gave.”? Certainly not. That’s the same casino spirit that comes into the church today. It’s not wrong to expect a return on giving but that should not be your motive on giving. When you give, your motive must be clean, without selfishness but with pure, clean heart. It must be pure offering without selfishness or wickedness. Give liberally with pure heart. Sometimes it pinches, right? But if you take the step and obey, it goes well. It doesn’t take obedience for you to do what you like to do. It’s not obeying, it’s simply doing. But it takes obedience what we do the things what we don’t like to do. Because you love God, then you obey.

READ: Daniel 10

If you want to have heaven encounter with God, you must wait.

6 days of preparation to enter into a realm to see the glory of God.

READ: Luke 9: 28-35

The Lord prayed so long for Him to be transfigured long enough to put those 3 apostles (Peter, James and John) to sleep. He is praying not for himself. He prayed for the 3 apostles to see the glory of God. The flesh can’t. It needs the light that sanctifies, refine and purify the 3 disciples making them fit to enter in the cloud. God told Moses, “No man can see me.” The flesh can’t so it needs cleansing, overcoming the work of one time grace that comes in an instant. First time is always a one-time grace that made you see how good God is. Then you must pursue which takes a long time. If you want to abide in it, you have to pursue it with all your heart, soul and all that is within you passionately.

The Holy Spirit and Fire prepares the church for the outpouring of the glory of God. Why is it necessary?

Matthew 13: 24-30 says, “Jesus told them another parable: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like this. A man sowed good seed in his field. One night, when everyone was asleep, an enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. When the plants grew and the heads of grain began to form, then the weeds showed up. The man’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, it was good seed you sowed in your field; where did the weeds come from?’ ‘It was some enemy, who did this,’ he answered. ‘Do you want us to go and pull up the weeds?’ they asked him. ‘No,’ he answered, ‘because as you gather the weeds you might pull up some of the wheat along with them. Let the wheat and the weeds both grow together until harvest. Then I will tell the harvest workers to pull up the weeds first, tie them in bundles and burn them, and then to gather in the wheat and put it in my barn.’ ”

Matthew 36-42 says, “When Jesus had left the crowd and gone indoors, His disciples came to Him and said, ‘Tell us what the parable of the weeds in the field means.’ Jesus answered, ‘The man who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man; the field is the world; the good seed is the people who belong to the Kingdom; the weeds are the people who belong to the Evil One; and the enemy who sowed the weeds is the Devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvest workers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered up and burned in the fire, so the same thing will happen at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out his angels to gather up out of his Kingdom all those who cause people to sin and all other who do evil things, and they will throw them into the fiery furnace, where they will cry and gnash their teeth.”

 Revelation 3:1-2 says, “To the angel of the church in Sadis write: ‘This is the message from the one who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know what you are doing; I know that you have the reputation of being alive, even though you are dead! So wake up, and strengthen what you still have before it dies completely. For I find that what you have done is not yet perfect in the sight of my God.”

Revelation 2:12-13 says, “To the angel of the church in Pergamum write: ‘This is the message from the one who has the sharp two-edged sword. I know where you live, there where Satan has his throne. You are true to me, and you did not abandon your faith in me even during the time when Antipas, my faithful witness, was killed there where Satan lives.”

Revelation 2:1- 4 says, “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write: ‘This is the message from the one who holds the seven stars in his right hand and who walks among the seven gold lampstands. I know what you have done; I know how hard you have worked and how patient you have been. I know that you cannot tolerate evil people and that you have tested those who say they are apostles but are not,andhave found out that they are liars. You are patient, you have suffered for my sake, and you have not given up. But this is what I have against you: you do not love me now as you did at first.”

Lying spirits come for those hearts that are ready for deception. They thought God speaks to them and they hurry but it’s not. It’s because they want.

Matthew 3:12 says, “He has his winnowing shovel with him to thresh out all the grain. He will gather his wheat into his barn, but he will burn the chaff in a fire that never goes out.”
