We are able to access the eternal spiritual realm through the Holy Spirit who connects us to Jesus. He is the Living Word of God. Jesus Christ is the only God-given door that we enter into through prayer, meditation, praise and worship, dreams and vision. Jesus, the Anointed One, is the only God who has been raised from the dead. Jesus was raised from the slumber of death, becoming the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep or died. We know that death entered the world through the physical body of Adam when he sinned, so it took the spiritual body of the perfect man Jesus to make the resurrection of the dead a reality for us. Adam introduced death to mankind; but Jesus brought forth eternal life for everyone who believes on Him. The weak, fleshly, naturally animated physical body that is planted in the earth decays. The spiritually animated splendor and power of the body raised from the earth cannot decay.
The first man, Adam, came from the dust of the earth, so he shared an earthly nature with mankind and became a living soul. The last Adam, Jesus, came from heaven so He shared His heavenly nature with those destined for heaven and became a life-giving Spirit. There is a kingdom order. The body is not enlivened first by the spiritual but by the physical; then after our rebirth into salvation the Holy Spirit becomes our life-giving force. We carry the image of the earth in our earthen bodies; so we will also carry the image of Jesus the heavenly man in our new resurrected bodies. We will not all sleep in death; but we will all be instantly changed and transformed.
When our spiritual eyes are opened to see God’s unseen kingdom we come into the realization that God is omnipresent. His angels and a great cloud of witnesses have always been around us. God has gifted His seers, prophets and millions of believers to view, hear, and participate in this invisible realm while we live on earth. But for others, who have not developed their seeing gift, they are only able to see this eternal territory after they step out of their bodies at death. Being freed from their physical body they can now enter into the dominion of the spirit. Our natural eyes saw ordinary things while living on the earth, but now in death, our spiritual eyes are opened to see the vast expanses of eternity.
There are many false doors into the realm of spiritual darkness. Sadly, those who force their way past Jesus to enter through these counterfeit doors are led to spiritual death. Some of these false doors include but are not limited to drugs, hypnotic trances, chanting, focusing or meditating on nothingness, witchcraft, casting spells, incantations, soul travel, astral-projection, and channeling demonic spirits. All of these false doors lead to poverty, failure, depression, the despair of disease, and finally physical and spiritual death. Jesus Christ alone is the only true doorway that gives the believer access to the highest spiritually abundant, eternal life. “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door (Jesus), but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door (Jesus) is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear His voice; and He calls His own sheep by name and leads them out. And when He brings out His own sheep, He goes before them; and the sheep follow Him, for they know His voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” (John 10:15)
2018 was the Year of Door
“For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” 1 Corinthians 16:9 Believers are able to discern the lion behind the door and the lion that stands before the door as we are often caught between two roars. The Lion of Judah roars, “Do not fear, open the door, gain energy and momentum to run into your inheritance to occupy and advance for I am with you! War forward against your enemies to unlock your financial fullness of provision for the next season.” The other roar is the enemy. His lying voice tries to stop us in our path, to devour through fear, intimidation and accusation.
Hell wants to keep you bound to the past through doubt, shame and unbelief. Betrayal overwhelms, while rejection and abandonment makes you feel fatherless. An orphan spirit causes hopelessness so that it can establish an iniquitous pattern in your generational bloodlines to block or limit the measure in which the Holy Spirit can move. The enemy develops strategies to compound your distractions in order to plunder your losses by creating captivity so that you never have vision to harvest your field. Learn to bring your First Fruits to God to recover loss, to be restored and then expect your barns to overflow with God’s goodness and provision. “Glorify God with all your wealth, honoring him with your very best, with every increase that comes to you. Then every dimension of your life will overflow with blessings from an uncontainable source of inner joy.” Proverbs 3:9-10 God’s grace causes us to gain so much momentum that hell can’t stop us from advancing God’s kingdom. We must learn to face off our enemies in the wilderness or they will attach to, overtake and captivate us until we loose vision and die in the wilderness (Matthew Chapters 3 and 4).
