Ascending & Descending In God’s Glory – Part 2 – 5/11/11

Last week, I began teaching you about the ability of every believer to ascend to heaven, communicate with God and receive His glory and descend back on Earth causing lives to be transformed. We read about Jacob’s experience in Genesis 22 when in a dream he saw angels ascending and descending. The 2 weeks previously, we had been speaking about the next move of the Holy Spirit which is to usher in God’s Glory in a far greater dimension than the world has ever experienced. I suggested that ascending and descending is a strategy or tool used to usher in God’s glory on earth.

I also gave 2 benefits of ascending:- 1. When we ascend to heaven we access God’s creative power in the glory. You learn how to speak those things that be not as though they were. You begin to decree things on earth that have not happened for years. You literally draw on Elohim our Creator 2. Ascending into God’s glory can also be a tool for transformation in your life. Your attitude, character flaws begin to change, your mind becomes renewed, transformed in God’s glory.

Today, I want to first give you some more benefits of ascending. There are various techniques we can apply to establish God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven namely praise, worship, fasting, warfare. We are familiar with these strategies, some more than others. Another significant strategy that has been overlooked by the body of Christ largely because the enemy has perverted it is ascending and descending in God’s glory. Another benefit would be the most obvious and possibly the most significant which is to bring God’s glory here to earth. We pray thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. God wants us to bring everything in heaven back down to earth. How do we do that? By ascending and descending.

There is an interesting portion of Scripture taken from John 17 from verse 20. This is Jesus Himself speaking praying firstly for His disciples but then he begins to pray of all believers. Before we turn there, let’s see the similarity of the importance of a particular word that is a key in ascending and descending for the purpose of bringing down to earth God’s glory in the 3rd dimension we are coming into.

In the OT both in Genesis 2:24-“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” (echad –Hebrew meaning oneness, unity)

Deuteronomy 6:4-6
4) “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one![a] 5) You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
6) “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.

When Moses wrote:- The word God here is expressed in its plural form in the Hebrew text emphasizing the Godhead of the Trinity in the NT. (Once again echad is used). This portion of Scripture is not only the most significant Scripture for the Jews but by Jesus Himself as the first and greatest commandment.) Turn to John 17:20-26

John 17:22
“And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one,” (“one” taken in the Greek “Heis” which literally means numeral 1? Similar to the Hebrew “echad” in Genesis.

How do we get this glory? By being one as He is one with the Father.

HOW WILL THE WORLD KNOW THAT GOD SENT HIS SON JESUS? Verse 22-23.

This unity Jesus speaks of is not an organizational but spiritual unity, oneness which will be visibly manifested in the church. IN VERSE 24 JESUS makes a significant statement and on the surface we can say that He is speaking about when we die and go to heaven. But I want to tell you that Jesus was also speaking about now. The kingdom of God is at hand. Jesus wants us to be with Him where He is that we may behold His glory which the Father has given the Son. Yes the church’s unity will reach its comsummation in heaven but my Bible tells me that we are to pray thy kingdom come and NOW faith is.

Before I go any further, I want to read to you a post I wrote on Facebook a few days ago after an ordained minister endorsed a book and literally said it was the best book she ever read. The book is entitled “The Revolutionary” by George Barna.

Earlier this year I began a teaching on the spirit of Anti-Christ & the spirit of deception and I said 2011 is the commencement where deception in the Body of Christ would be magnified. LISTEN TO ME and to all ‘Revolutionaries’ of George Orwell (oops, I mean Barna), this teaching is not of God! These are not God’s words speaking through this man. Do not be deceived. Yes God is doing a new thing am…ong His people and I have been speaking about it as a prophet of God…but I am incensed by the counterfeit offered by this man preying (no pun intended) on disenfranchised believers. You do err not knowing the Scriptures. Don’t be sucked in by some truth as to the status of the Body of Christ now and ignore evangelical rebellion. I speak as the senior minister of an example of the book of Acts ‘church’. Don’t throw out the baby with the bath water! Among His people and I have been speaking about it as a Prophet of God …but I am incensed by the counterfeit offered by this man preying (no pun intended) on disenfranchised believers. You do err not knowing the Scriptures. Don’t be sucked in by some truth as to the status of the Body of Christ now and ignore Evangelical Rebellion. Don’t throw out the baby with the bath water.

What therefore is the key which is required for the body of Christ to usher in God’s glory that Jesus says He desires we be with Him to be a part of His glory? IT IS ECHAD! IT IS HEIS! It is for us to be as one with the Jesus as Jesus is as one with the Father.

In the natural, in order for a marriage to be consummated what process has to take place? Intercourse right? The two became one flesh in the physical realm. It is the same in the spiritual realm.

This now takes me to the next significant point surrounding ascending as a tool to usher in God’s glory. When people saw Jesus, they saw the Father. Turn to John 14: 9-He said in John 14:9 while speaking to Philip, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father.” Philip wanted Jesus to show him the Father. BUT HOW DID JESUS GLORIFY THE FATHER? By finishing the work God gave Him to do. TO GLORIFY GOD THEREFORE –IS to do the things He has called, chosen, appointed and anointed you to do. Verse 12 says “greater works shall we do’. THAT SPEAKS OF THE SUPERNATURAL. That speaks of stepping into the miraculous realm. That speaks of ascending and descending. Our role as the Body of Christ is not to be a pew warmer but to DO as Jesus DID THEN we will see His glory.

What can we say therefore up to this point?

God requires that we be a part of His end time army to usher in His glory
One significant strategy or tool we can use to do so is by ascending into heaven and descending on earth
Jesus desires for us to be with Him in heaven to experience God’s glory
As a body we must be in one accord, in unity, in oneness in order to do so
When we function in oneness the supernatural, the miraculous will begin to take place in a far greater dimension as we frequent heaven where Jesus is
Then we will be DOERS of the WORD and not hearers only. We will be about the Father’s business.

IT IS at that point church, that we will see the Spirit of the Lord being poured out on all flesh. Where we can ascend into heaven and take hold what has already been given to us, His glory, and descend back on earth and loose it into the atmosphere. Loose the glory into the atmosphere. Speak it into the atmosphere. Release decrees and see it come to pass as we speak and even sometimes before we even speak God has already answered. That’s where God is taking His church.

But as a body currently, we are divided just as in the natural the Palestinians are attempting to divide Israel when God specifically warns the nations that divide up His land in Joel 3.

The spirit of division permeates the atmosphere in the 2nd heaven. There are principalities and powers over entire regions causing division either along religious lines or racial line or political lines or economic lines. BUT we as God’s remnant on the earth serve as God’s watchmen on the wall. We MUST stand our watch as the Bible says in Habakkuk 2:1.

This then brings me to my next point of the benefits of ascending and descending in God’s glory. IT can be used as a tool to cause you to be above principalities, powers in the dark realm of the 2nd heaven. What dimension is heaven? According to Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:2, he was caught up in the 3rd heaven. This means that when we ascend into the 3rd Dimension as Apostle Paul did, (which by the way means we can too. I’m not going there as I clearly showed you last week it is not only possible but it is probable), we can do warfare on a whole new level. Satan is called the prince of the power of the air. He operates from the 2nd heaven. He has not yet been cast into the pit or the Lake of Fire. When we learn how to ascend into the 3rd heaven we are over him. HE is literally under our feet.

I had had the experience of seeing a war in that realm a few years ago between the fallen angels and God’s angels. At that time, I never understood nor was I ever taught about ascending or doing warfare at that level. Now, when I ascend into heaven, it is not only to bask in God’s glory and that is wonderful. In fact, the first couple of times you don’t want to do anything else. You are so overwhelmed by visiting heaven, you literally want to just soak in His glory. But remember I said Jesus demonstrated God’s glory by His works. So there is a specific purpose God has given us access to His Throne in the 3rd heaven. Paul the Apostle, after his experience in ascending spoke of boasting in infirmities, taking pleasure in infirmities and then he spoke about the signs of an apostle. ..that apostles operate in signs and wonders and mighty deeds. He experienced the supernatural in a far greater dimension as he grew closer in oneness with Jesus.

Therefore, God will teach you strategy in spiritual warfare that achieves far greater results than battling here on the earth. I have learnt to do this. I have practiced it. Like Paul I don’t speak of the inexpressible words I hear in heaven but I will say to you that I have joined forces with the angels to fight some battles in the spirit concerning some personal matters but also concerning your petitions. I have seen results that I had not seen before in my life.

Bear with me Saints, as I don’t want to overwhelm you with too much at any one time with the word that God has given me in this season. If you notice the messages are a bit shorter because it’s a lot to chew on. I trust that when I make requests to read further, you do so for it is not I who am making the requests but the One whom has sent me. I function here not on my own because I feel I have a nice word. This is the sound of heaven speaking to you to secret things of God. It is His heart being spoken to you that you may come in alignment with Him and be ‘echad’ with Him to fulfill destiny in your life and also to fulfill God’s perfect will on the earth.

As you ascend, you will experience a continuous flow of supernatural encounters. I told you last week the day of the superstar preacher will soon be over as the remnant church of Jesus Christ will all be able to walk in a supernatural dimension. You will be able as an intercessor to see people from other countries and pray for them. Literally, there will be no distance in the spiritual realm. I remember recently I was before the Lord in intercession and someone from MAP joined me and I was taken in a vision to the Amazon and I saw a tribe there. I was able to describe them and their surroundings. My prayer partner came in agreement with me concerning this tribe for their salvation and preservation. 2 days later, the tribes of the Amazon were on World news fighting for their very existence. That’s supernatural. I frequently have encounters like this one. Let us be about our Father’s business.

- Let us be a people who are so focused on the things of God on the mind of Christ that our very mindset will be to establish God’s kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.
- Let us get into prayer and worship until we experience ascending and descending in God’s glory. The Apostles never missed prayer as Acts 3 shows Peter and John going to the temple to pray and healing a man at the gate called Beautiful.
