Want to first give my Father God all the Glory and thank Him for His Grace upon my life… His Presence which rest upon this fragile vessel and the Love He pours out upon my heart… so thankful for His Mercy and Joy that comes brand new every morning, He truly is a Good Father beyond my finite mind, therefore i never try and figure Him out, i just sit and wait upon His counsel… in Love, which i call Holy Spirit university.
If you ask yourself why? let me give you the premise upfront… we need to know this is available and we serve an Almighty God. And before signs, wonders, and miracles… God your Father absolutely wants all of your heart. heart to Heart… deep calling upon Deep.
Before i speak about the “Word” that the Lord continues to press into my spirit… i never knew i had been re-born in His glory. This understanding came from John Kilpatrick preaching about the glory and from a few others… for 17 days His glory covered me and i supernaturally read the New Testament, sometimes 7-8 hours a day, maybe more?… Holy Spirit took over me and transformed me from a broken army ranger who served this country for 20 years… into a man who cannot ever get enough of Jesus… the scripture that says… im like the deer that pants for the water brooks, and So my soul pants for You, O God… i get what the psalmist is saying… im obsessed for more Jesus, His Fire and His Glory and im passionate about the lost without a true shepherd.
Let’s just say i had no idea even what the Shekinah Glory was…i have been so honored to experience the Kobad glory of God many times just in my living room and a few times when Nathan Morris from Shake the Nation ministries laid hands upon me…
i was under His Fire for several weeks, but so intense for 3 days i couldn’t even sleep… Last Easter Holy Spirit spoke to me and clearly said i want to commune with you… i had no idea what that meant, but i just laid down by my fire place and didn’t move for the next ??? hours… all i knew was, it was getting dark when i laid down and then the sun was coming up… Holy Spirit covered me with His glory and i got lost in Him… i could feel Him laying upon me face to face and holding my hands… How do i know this was Holy Spirit… He is completely Holy and you know your Creator… Jesus says this so clear in scripture… My sheep know my voice… eternal Life in John 17:3 is to Know Jesus.
but the first time i experienced the true power of Father’s glory was one night in a small church praying for a female heroin addict in severe pain and withdrawals… i had been helping her through prayer and by praying for her, she had been able to be set free from 15 meds including pain meds… plus Heroin.
But this particular night she called me she was hurting so severe and she was thinking about using again. i immediately called a friend of mine and we went and picked her up… i prayed earnestly, but Holy Spirit was not taking the pain… it happen to be the night we were going to a Sunday night service at His Way in Albany…
The pain wouldn’t stop, i was calling upon angels (i had no idea why? i was overcome in the Spirit of God… i know we don’t worship angels and Holy Ghost should be enough i know this, He is i know, but God has us in relationship with angels) anyway… i was praying in the Spirit with several brothers and sisters… the Presence of God was so powerful i could barely stand… then when i asked, i said God… “JESUS” i need Your Holiness… there was something preventing this young woman from being touched… as soon as i said, “i need Your Holiness” i truly felt a tangible Fire like tunnel come down… engulfing this young woman and she began to shake like ive never seen anyone shake… i lost all bearing of what i was doing… all i wanted to do is step into this Presence ive never experienced… i placed my hands up and i could tangibly feel something like a pressure shift… not sure how to explain this… all i knew is that this was absolutely Holy…
What i experienced when i stepped in must have been just a small taste of the atmosphere of heaven… i was captivated by the silence and a peace that saturated my soul… inside it felt like home… i look down and this young lady is still just sitting there with her arms raised just shaking… Today, i know she was being delivered from something, i don’t know from what, but whatever “it” was left!… ( and Yes to the Glory of God, she is saved today) im not exactly sure of the order of events, but during this… i felt the Hand of God touch me, i said Jesus, i couldn’t believe this was happening, my mind was overcome with Him, but all i knew was that His Hand was holding my hand… i was captivated… motionless… i looked up at a brother of mine and could see there was, but only him standing… everyone was laid out in His Presence… my speech was broken, and i said i know He is touching my hand right Now. All Glory to you God…
Okay… this is getting to long… please believe me, that i was once so lost and sad… and then! Boom! The King of Glory Love tackled me!
Holy Spirit is really speaking to me in this day, about… “the Sacred things” which has so much to do with “First Love” which ties into All relationships of every form… “Reverence” with true reverence… honor and respect is always close at hand… how you see something and understand a thing truly causes us to have boundaries of behavior towards an object. Or Being.
like being married per say to your wife, that’s a sacred covenant and Holy ground when married in the Presence of God with vows to our Father. let’s make this simple in my language, i don’t cheat on my wife because i love and respect her. Not because it’s the Law.
Nothing comes close to His Love… no relationship can inhibit Your Love towards Jesus, especially spending Time with Him (psalm 91)… spending our time with Him in a vessel that’s passing… with that said, time here on earth is truly the highest currency available to give to our First Love… (maybe 10 percent of that time at a minimum) that can be said, towards anything, but Jesus must be First… the truth is our Father wants All our Heart and then we can begin to learn to be led by His Holy Spirit and mature within Him as sons and daughters. 8.4 hours is 10 percent. (so i just thought of this and looked up 84 in Hebrew, pinion! Shadow of His wings, psalm 91:4)
Like i always try and remember to tell Holy Spirit Good morning and that i love Him every morning because He seems to always be right there when i wake up… for me this is the highest honor, that the Spirit of God hovers upon me all night, sometimes this alone makes me cry…
i can feel His presence upon me as soon as i wake… so i make Him First, i sleep with His Word playing and i wake up praying… i wake up doing the same thing i went to bed doing… this is what i do, not saying this is what you need to do, but i do believe… He wants to be the First and Last of our day, at the minimum. This is not about me, it’s always about Him and i do what i do in private because im so in Love… with Jesus… with Holy Spirit, God our Father.
moving on… Nothing can distract us, we have to CLOSE the door to all delay and distractions. Even then our own flesh tries to rise up within the secret Place.
Jesus was in the Bosom of the Father and we must learn to dwell in the Heart of Jesus…
One night in prayer “i asked Jesus” Holy Spirit you say im seated in Him in heavenly places… sometimes Holy Spirit is so beautiful, well He is always beautiful… i hear as clear as crystal… i asked Him where am i? “where do you think? you are in my Heart son” that moved me beyond words… my heart cried out in Love… i was like! Truth just has a sound… I just knew because Father released Jesus from His Heart.
His throne (throne in Hebrew is kisse or kisseh, important to understand this) must be upon our Heart… then His Spirit covering our heart… in a canopy (pulling a tent over the chamber), PROTETED and Guarded by His Glory< then through Him ALL things are possible because He does everything for you. Jesus is the Shepherd who guards our heart after sanctification because from our heart All Life springs forth…
Holy Spirit gave me this scripture a year ago or so, but didn’t fully open the meaning to me.
“If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.
The very opposite of Love is hate, Now Father wants us to love our heavenly family of course, but still! He makes a very strong statement here, that! that no other love better inhibit your relationship with Him. those we love Must respect and Honor our time with Jesus because He is the source of Love… joy, He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together…
For by Jesus were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by JESUS, and for JESUS:
Jesus is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent (before All Life). For in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the Blood of his cross.
His blood makes me a son, but first im a babe, a child and then a son… so thankful and all glory to you God! Sons are led be His Holy Spirit.
The first calling we have… is to develop a Very intimate relationship with Jesus, His Presence,
Holy is His Name. Holy Holy Holy Holy
Father takes this Very serious and is not to be taken lightly… where the Spirit of the Lord is… there is Liberty yes, but we must Respect and Honor a Holy God… for He is absolutely worthy and Due reverence… and that’s with lots of emphasis. Many today have waxed very cold…
because respect from Heaven comes one Way, we must first respect Him. through Jesus and By Jesus and Jesus has given Himself as our salvation. we must first respect all things that are sacred to Father…
(NO) respect (er) of persons (Vulg.personarum acceptio), partiality, the fault of one who when called on to requite or to give judgment has respect to the outward circumstances of men and not to their intrinsic merits, and so prefers, as the more worthy, one who is rich, high-born, or powerful, to another who is destitute of such gifts: Romans 2:11; Ephesians 6:9; Colossians 3:25
Christ in US… the Hope of Glory… revival is within a man who’s thirst cannot be quenched, but by the Holy One of God. Man will not due…
If you don’t have Love… we are Nothing… God is Love… when betrothed to Him… by the Way, betrothed is a very Holy statement… we become truly set-apart for a divine wedding… when we have truly became utterly dependant upon Him… then by His Spirit and by His Might all things become possible… washed in His Word… daily.
i know this to be true, Father spoke this Word to me and continues to drop scriptures into my spirit and heart of why we as a body; we have grown somewhat feint… “our Heart” within the body of Christ… the door to the Head, the Way to Christ is through His Heart. We must become One as a body first within the chamber of His heart.
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
2 Corinthians 2
Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many. 7 So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. 8Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him. 9For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things. 10To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; 11Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. (2 Corinthians 2)
And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
Servants, be obedient to them that are [your] masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
