LEARNING THE INVISIBLE REALM
BY: LINDA KEITH
JANUARY – FEBRUARY 2005
It seems that regularly, when January rolls around, that Father begins to impress upon me Word of something this is going to manifest, in the coming year. Well, this is January and it’s no different from other Januarys.
As you saw, from the last study; “The Bringing Forth of the Image of the Son,” what Father has been speaking to me, is that, those who He is manifesting through, will begin a thorough “EXPERIENCING” of the Spirit world, that invisible realm. And all I can say is, “take what you will, and leave what you will.”
I had 2 dreams that I want to share with you:
(1) I dreamed that I was sitting on a VERY EXPENSIVE chair. This chair was in a clear opening. And as I sat there, on the chair, a man walked up behind me and threw a net-like veil over my head and my face. I could see through the veil, but, not clearly… end of dream.
(2) The 2nd dream was that I was having a man make love to me. But, I could not SEE the man. Then, just in a flash, the dream changed to me being in this building where my sister was staying and she was very sick.
Franticly, I ask the people there, “Have you had a doctor to look at her?” They said, no, and that I could not take her out of that place. So, I grabbed my sister and being very weak, I had to help her walk out of that place.
There was a big man standing just outside the door. He stepped in front of us and he said, very roughly, “Where do you think you’re going?” My sister and I started running away from him and a gang that had joined him. We came to an ocean, and I said to my sister, “We HAVE to jump into the ocean in order to be safe. So, we jumped in and started swimming. Now, the sun was shinning and the part of the ocean that it shined on was easily seen. But, there was a shaded area of the ocean that you couldn’t see real clearly. So, we swam into the shaded area. I could actually feel the blood rushing through my veins, but, I wasn’t afraid, but, very much wanting to escape the people who were after us.
We had no sooner gotten into the shaded area, than a huge whale came up out of the water. I said to my sister, “we have to get on top of that whale to be safe.” We climbed on the whale and instead of the whale swimming in the water; it began “swimming” through the air, just above the water... end of dream.
Usually, when a person has a dream, that dream is a message FOR THAT PERSON, regarding something about themselves. I began asking Father what these dreams meant. He said that His Body is A SINGLE BODY and these dreams were about them.
I would like to show you what some of the dreams symbolize:
1. Chair = the Throne of God
2. Very expensive = the price that paid for us by Jesus (Father).
3. The clear opening = (where the chair was at), the time spent WITHIN FATHER BEFORE WE WERE
4. The man = carnal man’s thinking and seeing
5. Threw = (the veil that was “thrown” over) the words that man PITCHES that brought us into darkness of
thinking, seeing and hearing.
6. Veil = something that distorts clear thinking.
7. Head and face = authority and countenance.
Let’s look at this first dream, before we move on to the second one.
Rev. 1:9, “I John, who am also your brother and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
Rev. 1:19, “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet.”
We need to pay close attention to these verses, because they tell us a lot about the uniting of the natural world and the Spirit world. As we know, Jesus, our Pattern, walked the natural earth, while at the same time, He was always conscious of the Spirit realm. Also, referred to, as the invisible realm or world.
There has always been a people who did this same thing. There are people who are called “Mediums”, who do this very thing. They are on earth, but they communicated with those in the invisible world. We have always been told by the church system, “stay away from things like this”. Regardless of what we’ve been warned of: how these people use this ability; or for whatever reason they use this ability; they do exist. Many who profess to be mediums are fakes and unscrupulous, but not all are. Some just have or have come to know and develop this ability of communicating with the invisible realm. JESUS DID THIS!! Now, before some of you turn up your nose and say, “phooey”, remember this:
Col. 2:8-10, “Beware lest any MAN spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of MEN, after the rudiments of the WORLD, and not after Christ.”
I want to tell you something, folks. MAN HAS spoiled us. How? Through the lies that we’ve been told. What things?
We are sinners.
We NEED MAN to teach us.
We are humans.
This is just A FEW of the lies we’ve been taught!! And they ARE after the TRADITION OF MEN; after the rudiments or principles of the world, the natural world. They are philosophy, and most of all they are vain deceits. Why? Because
God says exactly the opposite of what man has been teaching us. Man has even MADE GOD IN THE IMAGE THAT THEY WANT HIM TO BE!! IF we are humans, then a part of us dies when we step out of this flesh body. And that simply is not true. The body is a vehicle, not us. We are what our Father is, SPIRIT. We are created in HIS image. Does, any where in the bible say that a flesh body, full of corruption, IS GOD? No, no it doesn’t. And IF this body was us, why does it have to be changed into a glorious, incorruptible body? Come on, folks, it’s time to leave this delusional lie! People say, all the time, I want to die and go to heaven and be an angel. What is an angel? A spirit being. So, if God is a Spirit Being, what’s the big deal in admitting that we are already, a Spirit Being? I don’t understand it. God’s image is not a flesh body, full of corruption, like these we are traveling around in. Jesus, being God, while on the earth, did not have a body that could be destroyed, IF HE HAD NOT WANTED IT TO BE!!! The reason our body is as it is – is because of our beliefs!!
VAIN DECEITS!! MAN’S PHILOSOPHY!! THE PRINCIPLES OF THIS WORLD IS WHAT WE’VE BEEN TAUGHT! And we WERE WARNED against them, BEFORE we were ever born!! There is NO TRUTH, EXCEPT HIS TRUTHS!
Let’s look at what God’s Truths say about us.
VS 9-10, “For in Him (Jesus) dwelleth FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY. AND YOU ARE COMPLETE IN HIM, which is the head of all principality and power.”
What are we? COMPLETE IN HIM!! Where is He? Within us. IF He is complete and has the FULLNESS, and He is in us, and we are in Him, what does that make us, IN GOD’S WORDS? WE ARE COMPLETE. What does that mean? It means we are and can do the same things, and have the same abilities that Jesus had. The sad truth is, we’ve been taught differently and BELEIVE what we’ve been taught. What ability did Jesus have? He was in the Spirit realm while HE walked the earth. And actually, if the truth be told, these two realms are not separated. It’s just that we have had a veil over our eyes. We live in an illusion of man!
John 1:16, “And of his fullness have ALL we RECEIVED (past tense), and grace for grace.”
Did you see that? ALL OF HIS FULLNESS have we received. Folks, this is past tense. It doesn’t say, we ARE GOING TO RECEIVE HIS FULNESS, it says we already have. It’s there for you to see for yourself. YOU let these verses say to you whatever YOU LIMIT them to say. When you limit what He has given, you limit yourself. But, some of us accept the FACT that “fullness means fullness” and that “complete” means complete. If you don’t see it, it’s because you CHOOSE to believe what man says, over what God says. This fullness includes the same ability of seeing, hearing and speaking in worlds, the natural and the Spiritual.
Some say, why don’t we wee more of these abilities manifest? The main reason is because MAN has taught us that we are not to have anything to do with it. We’re not supposed to communicate with the dead. Well folks, Jesus did away with death when He died on the Cross and went into the earth and set the captives free. Not only were they released from death; so were we. But, we have not believed it. And when we don’t believe it, we call God a liar. When we say that we can’t communicate with those in the invisible realm, we call Him a liar. HE GAVE US THE ABILITY!! This isn’t a condemnation on anyone; it is truth that needs to be pondered on. And to ponder doesn’t mean to ask Bro. John, Pastor Henry, or anyone else. It means to take it to Father and allow Him to witness His Truth to the real you, the Spirit within that flesh body. We CANNOT manifest what we don’t believe.
Prov. 23:6-10, “Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats; For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he, Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. The morsel which thou has eaten shalt thou vomit up and lose thy sweet words.”
Man is concerned with being looked up to; instead of just looking up. His bread has been lies against Father’s truths. His eye has been evil; because he sees the opposite of what God sees. His dainty meats are HIS OWN THOUGHTS, not shown by the Spirit. We are what we believe of God’s truths that say we are, regardless whether man can see it or not. When we believe man’s teachings, we lose God’s sweet truths.
So, ponder on these truths of what you have within you, YOURSELF. Ask FATHER not man.
This first dream was saying that we ARE sitting in the seat of authority. God’s authority. It’s in us, to use as He tells us to use. There has been a veil over our eyes and our mind, but, NOW, God awakens us to the truth, “YOU HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST!!” (1 Cor 2:16) Don’t let man talk you out of it. They will say, “well you WILL HAVE, but, right now you don’t”. Is that calling God a liar? Yes, I think so. As long as they can keep you WAITING to receive the mind of Christ, the more dependent on THEM they can make you. That makes the big money!!
Now, please understand this. I am not saying that we are to just call forth anyone who has passed over and tell their loved ones what they say. No. We DO NOTHING UNTIL GOD TELLS US TO, THEN we don’t hesitate for a second. And folks, how do you call out, “COME FORTH”, if you don’t communicate with those passed over? Even the disciples did it. Were they not living in this natural world, the same as us? Ahhh, yes they were, but they, at that moment, allowed themselves to have their minds in the heavens. So must we. We have the seat of authority in us; and the veil is rent. Hallelujah!! We are beginning to see clearly. I like that old song that says, “I can see clearly now“.
The second dream is a little more lengthy than this first one. And we’ll get into it in the next part.
This week Father really showed me something regarding the invisible realm. You know, the written Word has so very much, hidden in between the lines of what the carnal mind reads. I think that the more He shows us, the more in awe of Him, we are. All the deep revelations that have been revealed are wonderful: but the more He shows me the more I know that we haven’t even touched the tip of the iceberg. And IF we think that some of what He is bringing forth today, might seem a little strange, it’s nothing compared to what He is opening up to some folks.
When our little local group met, this past Sunday, in the home of a sweet sister, our praise was so lifted up. It was brought to the attention of all 5 of us that every song that Father had laid on our hearts to sing, was about THE SPIRIT and the SPIRIT REALM. We are entering a new phase today; well, new to what we remember, anyway. Even everyday scriptures that we’ve all read a thousand times are becoming more and more revealing.
Remember the scripture that says, “Ask and ye shall receive”? It kept coming up in our fellowship Sunday and by the third time that it came up, I said to myself, “He is showing us something, much different than what we’ve thought before. As I looked up that word, “ask” you know what I found? That word means, “demand what is due”. Get a real grip on that. DEMAND WHAT IS DUE. My mind immediately went to those who had told me, “we have no right demanding anything!” Well, Father says differently. We wonder, as we watch loving Christian people praying for healings and different things, why, Lord, aren’t their prayers answered? Oh, I know what some will say, they will be answered in God’s time. Well, remember one thing, TIME does not exist in Father. Time came into being, when our minds fell into this earth realm. God’s “time” IS WHEN WE DO IT!
Before we get into this second dream that I had, I feel led to include the following.
PS 138:2, “I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving kindness and for they truth: for thou hast magnified they word above all thy name.”
This tells us that God magnified HIS WORD above all the name that He’s been known as. Now, the word, “name” means NATURE. God magnified HIS WORD about all His Nature. All, is a plural word. Name is singular. GOD DID THE MAGNIFYING, not us, not the folks who wrote and translated the bible, but God. So, that makes His Word, so very, very, important. Now, knowing what GOD thinks of His Word, think about Jesus. Do you think that, like many of us have been taught, that He went into pray, and very “meekly”, very timidly, said, “Father, PLEASE do this, PLEASE do that”? Jesus KNEW what God’s Word meant to God. And any promise that God made, WAS DUE WHEN HE PRAYED FOR IT!! Jesus BELIEVED what God’s Words said. Regardless of the situation, He BELIEVED what Father said.
Remember when the disciples wondered why Jesus could raise the dead, and they couldn’t? It was because of BELIEF or lack of it. They didn’t know that they had the right to DEMAND what was due. All Jesus had to do was speak a word and there it was!! Because He demanded what was due. We DON’T DEMAND GOD, we demand what He has given us.
Col. 2;9-10, “For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:”
Do you understand that? We ARE COMPLETE, not WILL BE COMPLETE. Every promise; all the power of God; all the strength of God, ALL OF GOD, WE HAVE!! And yet, we measly mouthed, go and beg God to do something, when HE has already given it to us. But, what do we do? We allow the natural circumstance dictate to us, what we can or cannot do. Pitiful.
Mark 16:15-18, “And he said unto them (the eleven disciples), go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved: but, he that believeth not shall be damned.”
Now, I want you to notice something, here. Jesus is doing the talking. And He did not say, “he that believeth and is baptized IN WATER…” He goes on to tell what He’s talking about, “believeth not”. He’s talking about believing and not believing. What were we to be baptized in? BELIEF!! He goes on in verses 17-18 to tell what would happen IF we believe. Things that we consider miracles, but these things are PROMISES. He gave us these promises. They are DUE when we do them!! All that has to be done, is know His Will and speak it, demand it.
John 14:13-14, “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask ANYTHING in my name, I will do it.”
We see people all the time, saying, “in the name of Jesus, I ask this or that.” Well, folks, name means NATURE. In the NATURE OF JESUS. What was His nature? He BELIEVED ALL that Father had given Him. ALL THE PROMISES; all the POWER: and all the STRENGTH. Situations did not break down His belief at all. HE DEMANDED WHAT FATHER HAD GIVEN IN PROMISES. He demanded what was due!! When Lazarus was resurrected, IT WAS DUE!!
Col. 3:3 tells us that our LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD. Now, get this. OUR ORIGINAL LIFE IS HID IN GOD, AND HE IS SEEN THROUGH US!! We MUST realize this. Now, look at what verse 15 tells us:
Col. 3:15, “Let the peace of God RULE IN YOUR HEART…YE ARE CALLED…“
“called”. Check this out: called= 1) to be called by one’s name. 2) to be called INTO one. 3) to be RECKONED to HIS RACE. (by His Blood). 4) to have an expectation of metamorphus!!! Hallelujah!!
Col. 3:17, “And whatever you do or say, let it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus…”
To be a representative, means we do it as Jesus did it. By BELIF and KNOWING IT IS DUE because of Father!!
This next verse is speaking of when Jesus healed Peter’s mother in law.
Mt 8:16, “When the eve was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils; and he cast out the spirits WITH HIS (GOD’S) WORD… and healed all that were sick.”
Jesus KNEW and BELIEVED that IF God said something, it was a fact. Expect it to come into manifestation because it was DUE!!
Now, this is where the first part of the second dream comes in. I dreamed that a man was making love to me, but I couldn’t SEE the man. Intercourse means, becoming ONE WITH. Look at what Father showed me.
John 12:37-38, “But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet, they believed not on him; That the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to who hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?”
Who has believed OUR REPORT? And who has the arm of the Lord been revealed? The arm of the Lord is power and authority, and what report is to be believed? WE ARE. WE ARE THE REPORT!!! And it’s due time to show forth out Father, through us. We are ONE WITH HIM. Now, AGAIN, I’m not talking about mere mortal man; I’m talking about those who know who and what they are. It’s “time” to DEMAND WHAT IS DUE!! He has made love to us. We united with Him AND Him with us. We became ONE with Him. We’ve BEEN ONE WITH HIM FOREVER!!! We have just forgotten it, but He’s waking us up to remember this.
You see, as we descended into this earth realm, the mind slowed down, and with it, the God consciousness. Now, Father is raising us BACK up into that Spirit state of being, that we truly are. Flesh and blood cannot enter heaven, or, that invisible realm.
Remember, in the second dream, I ASK the people where my sister was being kept, “have you had a doctor to look at her?” I asked. I didn’t demand what was due. I didn’t demand healing, that has already been given. And remember, when the man was making love to me, it was LIKE A FLASH… the dream changed. SPEED. Speed was fast. Just as it was when we were in the Spirit realm, as a Spirit being. But, let’s look at something.
Rev. 1:10, “I WAS IN THE SPIRIT…” This is John talking.
Daniel 10:14, “Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people IN THE LATTER DAYS…yet the vision is for many days”.
Now, you can read for yourself what all John SAW. You can also read for yourself, all that Daniel saw. What I want to show you is that, John SAW ALL THE AGES; even our future. Daniel saw what was to happen in the long future. ALL THE AGES!! Can you imagine SEEING all the ages? Well, get ready, YOU DID!!
When Abraham, Moses, Isaac, Jacob, all these mighty men did their thing, where were we? WE WERE STILL IN FATHER!! WATCHING all that was happening and all that WAS TO HAPPEN. Meditate on this. We had not even fallen to the earthen state of being yet, and were seeing all that was taking and was to take place!! This was BEFORE WE DESCENDED!! Ah… praise God, “who shall ascend, but him that descended!!!” Get a grip on this folks. We descended, AFTER we saw all the ages, and we ARE ASCENDING!! As I said at the beginning of this study, as awesome as this is, and we haven’t even seen the tip of the iceberg! So, get ready for a lot of things that hasn’t been heard (to the natural ears) yet because we are entering a thing that, the natural man has never seen or heard before.
Now, remember that we, my sister and I started running from people that were trying to keep us from escaping, and when we jumped into the water, we entered in the part where the sun was shining on it. Where it was clear to see anything in the water. But, we moved to the shaded part of the water, where it was hard to see what was in the water. The LIGHT has been shining, folks. We like what we see. But, what John saw, was in the Spirit; where it is not clear to the naked natural eye. There are those who have moved into the shaded part. And what they are SEEing, is not seen with the natural eyes and mind.
When Father started showing me about the invisible realm, maybe 2 or 3 months ago, I called my best friend, Marlene. Bless her heart, she is the one that listens to me say, “Marlene, I can’t write this, people will REALLY think I’ve lost it; they already think I’m a little in left field!” She is the one who encourages me and says, “Linda, Father WANTS you to do and tell what HE tells you, nothing or no one else matters”. I thank God for Marlene.
So, the whale, in the dream, was reminding me of Jonah. Jonah didn’t want to go tell the people of Ninevah, what Father told him to, because he dreaded what the people would say and do. But, as we learned, anything that Father bides us to do or say, HE IS WITH THE ACT OR THE WORDS. He doesn’t ASK us to do something, HE DEMANDS IT.
And the whale, floating in the air above the water, was God showing me that it was SPIRIT TIME! And it is folks. There will be those who will interact with the invisible realm. It is not to be feared. We will be DEMANDING WHAT IS DUE! His WORD is coming alive and manifesting itself. Personally, I WANT to be a part of it, but His will be done. Not ONLY will we be bringing those on the other side into perfection, so will/are we.
I don’t know what else Father will show me about this realm, but, as He does, I will share it with you. So, BELIEVE, BE READY and DEMAND WHAT IS DUE. For our time has come…
As I was listening for Father’s voice, several things started going through my mind, regarding the invisible realm. I have been asked why I call it the invisible realm, instead of, the Spirit realm. As I pondered an answer it became really clear to me, why I do this.
We ARE Spirit. And it is NOT the Spirit realm, OUR realm that is invisible; it’s that we’ve come to believe that this natural realm that we’ve created, SEEMS REAL to us, while all the while it is an illusion, and the real is the Spirit. We choose to see and live out life in this realm when, actually, we belong in and to the Spirit realm. We have MADE the Spirit realm become invisible to our eyes. How? By keeping our focus on the natural. While all the time, the Spirit realm is not invisible to those who are awakening to what and who they really are, because they are seeing it with a single eye; or, they are keeping their FOCUS on THAT which is real…the Spirit realm. But, to most that realm is invisible. I think to call it, “the spirit realm”, folks tend to begin thinking with that “mystical, religious thinking” that the church has taught it. So, I call it, “invisible,” as it IS and WILL remain just that, until eyes are opened.
It’s like the Prodigal Son who left his real home; that place became invisible to him when he became comfortable in his new life. That new life that he chose when he left home, was all an illusion, as he found out. It wasn’t life, in fact, it turned out to be a hell of a place. But, read the story and just let your Spirit show you his emotions as he neared his father’s home, the closer he got to it, on his way back home. I’m sure that from a distance, his dread blurred his eyesight as he drew close to his father’s house. Then, the dread was just wiped out, completely, as he drew closer and saw his father, out there in the front yard, waiting and waving to him. That home became clearer and clearer as he walked on. And the more clear his home got, that illusion that he was leaving behind, faded more and more, until, it just didn’t exist anymore. And the joy he must have felt!! The glorious thankfulness that had to be in his heart, when he saw, “I AM HOME, AGAIN!”
And you see, this prodigal son that came back to his father’s house, was the same son that left it. The only difference was that his thinking had changed.
You know, if you will just get off by yourself; relax and just become quiet and think of where YOU came from, you, too will feel a rising of glorious thankfulness, begin to fill your being. We all know, at least those who get my studies, and are of the same thinking, anyway, we all know that when WE came forth from Father, we were/are just a many membered PART OF HIM. There was nothing to be created from; just Him. We came out of Him. And if you remember from the earlier studies, we learned that that little word, “of”, in the Greek is “ek”. It means, “OUT FROM WITHIN”. We came forth out from within Father. The very same thing that He was/is…..Spirit. (John 4;24) And since He never changes, neither do we. Just our thinking changes.
So, let your mind wonder BACK to where you came from. It’s not imagination, it’s remembering. We were there when all things were created. We saw each thing be created, one by one. We saw people who were lowered into this natural realm. You see, Father was showing us HOW to create. He planned on us creating, when the “time” came. I can’t tell you how long we were there, with Him, watching Him. We were/are exactly what He was/is. And our “time” was coming to do some creating.
Just think, we saw history, of this natural realm, from a bird’s eye view. Just as those who have had their time here on earth, and are now, back in the original form that they started out in, we WERE in that same form. You know, all that really happens or happened; is that we stepped into this flesh body, and as folks leave this flesh form, they simply step back out of it. Back into their original form. But, their memory has to become completely restored. We are told, in the written Word.
Romans 12:2, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect , will of God.”
You see, we are to be transformed back to what we have been all along, but, have forgotten what we are. How do we transform? “by the RE-newing of our mind”. RE-new. This tells me that somewhere along the way, my mind changed from what it was; from the truth that it knew. In other words, we are to bring our mind BACK to what it has been, not to what it is today. WE are to know, what we knew before we got really interested in the things that were ONLY MEANT TO EXPERIENCE. Now, what I am about to say, might upset some, but, take it to Father.
You see, this life that we are living is not OUR LIFE, it is FATHER’S LIFE. Why? So He can EXPERIENCE all things. He is a Spirit Being. Spirits don’t eat, drink, feel the touch of cloth or skin, they don’t ache or have pain. Yes, Father is ALL KNOWING, but He didn’t EXPERIENCE these things. He thought them, He created all things, but, He didn’t experience all of them. He wanted to experience the feel of a flower; the sound of a bubbling brook; the sun on the skin; the wind and the feel of it on a body; all the good and loving things that He created, He wanted to experience them. Remember, you cannot KNOW a thing UNTIL you experience that thing.
When He descended from that glorious state of being, into these flesh bodies, He intended, even planned the experiencing of all things. But, our minds got caught up in the natural realm. EX: When we/He touches a rose and a thorn pricks our finger, WE think: “ouch, why does these thorns have to be there”, but He experiences the protection of that rose, that He created. WE think, “ouch, that DAMNED thorn,” and guess what, that’s what we created. We FORGOT that He placed a protection on the stem of that flower. Creating by creating, we created an illusion, and that’s what we’ve been living in. BUT, that does NOT change what we ARE! The illusion was meant to be, but, not to become a reality to us. It’s just for the experiencing of it; like knowing the real from the unreal.
You know, I use to think that those in the invisible realm were just waiting for us to help them reach perfection. And in a sense that is true. But, lately, Father has been showing me that they will also help us, with the knowing or remembering of that realm and what is real and what is the illusion. We are to use this illusion to EXPERIENCE, not to think of it as our reality. Just like some think that this flesh body is us, actually, it is just the vehicle we step out of, if and when we leave this realm; or with the KNOWING and TRUTH that Father is bringing forth in us, we change it to be a part of that invisible realm, because, once it is changed, it won’t be flesh and blood. We will RE-turn to the speed of that realm; the blood will ungel and light will be where it was before we came into this realm; and we will/are enjoy the best of both realms, AT THE SAME TIME. And see both realms as Father intended for them to be seen.
At this time, in our journey back to Father’s home, we are remembering that road. And the joy is building up in some of us. I’m sure that on this last leg, we are/will come into contact with many on the road home that will help us as we help them. For they are on the same road, they are just coming from a different direction. There will be those that we will be instructed to tell them, that it’s not their time. There will be some that we will educate to the truth of Father. And visa versa, they will help us.
I was reading that verse: John 3:13, “And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.”
Now, when folks read this, they think ONLY of Jesus. But, be assured, this includes us too. We did FIRST descend, and now, we are ascending. We are RE-turning. And this returning includes passing from one realm to another, for some. For others, there will be a remaining ON earth and IN the earth, but we won’t/aren’t OF this world. We, like, our Pattern, Jesus, will be ON and IN the earth; yet, we will also be in what we have known as , the invisible realm.
Do we intermingle with the people of this natural world? Of course, we do. Well, the written Word tells us, “first the natural, then the spiritual.” (1 Cor 15:46)
Proverbs gives us a hint of what all we have been taught and what all is really true.
Prov 30:3-4, “I neither learned wisdom, nor know the knowledge of the holy. Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? Who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?”
This is Agur speaking these words. We have already seen that we DESCENDED into this realm. Wisdom IS NOT learned, it is given. Did not God say that He wrote His Words on our hearts, all it has to do is to be raised into our minds. This is the RE-newing that we are told to do. The wind speaks of the Spirit. We are grasping the Spirit and going with it. Are we not beginning to speak to the elements and they obey our command? Believe me folks, there’s a lot more of that going on than is being spoken of. I know of this to be a fact, with the hurricanes in Florida. Were we not there when Father ESTABLISHED all the ends of the earth? Didn’t we watch Him do it? Remember folks, try and remember. What is his name? I AM!! And that name includes us too. What is His son’s name. “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named!!.” What is His name? When I call you, I am calling Him. When I see you, I am seeing Him. We all have the same name.
EPH 4:8, “Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led a multitude of captives captive, and gave gifts unto men.”
It is our calling to do the same. We are to help a multitude of people who are in the invisible realm to come into the knowing of who they are. We are to free their minds from the carnal thinking that they have learned, while they were here. We are to let them know that this is an illusion that was created by their thoughts. Can you imaging the many of suicide bombers who were taught that if they kill themselves while killing others, that when they die they would go to heaven and have 12 or 15 or however many virgins would be there waiting for the, at their beck and call? And then they find out all this was a lie? Yes, they will need teaching. They will need to learn love. They will need TRUTH. They NEED US!!
VS 10, “He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things…”
Folks, please understand what I am going to say. It is time that we come to realize that JESUS, the man JESUS, is not the ONLY ONE to fulfill all things. We have been in Father’s plan since BEFORE the foundation of the world.
REV 11:12, “And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud: and their enemies beheld them.”
If you read Rev 1:13, you will find that this Book of Revelation is not revealing Jesus. He had already been revealed. It is revealing those who have come into the remembrance of who they are. And this verse, is them ascending BACK to their origin; and yet those on earth are beholding them. And the nature that is coming forth from them is creating a new earth, for you see, THEIR NEW HEAVEN has already come……that is, their minds have been re-newed.
WHY MUST WE ASCEND?
PS 68:18, “Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men: yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them.”
Folks, we have a calling on us. IF we love our brothers and sisters, whether on this side or the other side, we will help them to know who and what they are. We KNEW that we would do this, before we ever touched this place called earth!! All through the written Word, there are little clues, telling us about our being, BEFORE, we came here. Even the old fathers in the OT, were shown our day.
John 8:56, “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and HE SAW IT and rejoiced.”
You see, not ONLY Abraham saw this day, WE ALL SAW THIS DAY and was sent out to it. Now, that we are here, the remembrance is returning. Thus, the learning how to commune in that realm that we really belong to. And believe me, there is much more to come back to our remembrance.
We are looking at the invisible realm, and we need to realize some things. There are “laws” that Father has put in motion, from before the foundation of the world. I am not talking about the law of the OT. No. For instance:
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
“As you sow, so shall you reap.”
“Give and you shall receive.”
Now, I’m not talking what the prosperity preachers teach, “If you give my church, a hundred dollars, God will reward you a hundred fold. No, this is what I’m talking about. These “laws” that Father put into motion just as He laid His plan. His plan will not change and neither will the different laws that He sat in motion, change.
So, many people forget these “laws” or have never been aware of them. Each time something “bad” happens to them, they start yelling, “God is mad at me”, or, “the devil is really giving me a horrible time.” What they need to do is to look at their own actions.
As surely as I live, these things are true:
1) If you gossip about someone, guaranteed, someone will gossip about you.
2) If you steal from someone, guaranteed, you will lose something.
3) If you treat someone unkindly, it will come back to you.
4) If you don’t forgive, you will not be forgiven.
Yes, all sin has been taken by our precious Jesus, BUT, those laws that Father sat in motion are still working. In the streets it’s worded; “What goes around, comes around”. In the bible it states, “As you sow, so will you reap.” Call it what you will, payback, karma or the laws that are in motion. All mean the same thing. And all are true.
We think that when a person passes on into the invisible realm that all is fine. They don’t have to do anything, just sort of float around and wait to be called back into a new body. Folks, that’s not true. Look at the parable about Lazarus and the rich man. It shows at least TWO different places and states of being.
People think that when one passes on, all is forgotten of what they’ve done, or how they treated others. They think that all the “evil” of the natural world is just forgotten and all is fine. Doesn’t the bible tell us that we receive what we give? Well, why would it be any different for those who have passed on? Father is no respecter of persons, in the flesh or in the spirit realm. If we didn’t have any ways to follow, in the invisible realm, we’d all be killing ourselves to get there and get away from the reapings that we are bringing on ourselves. Those who pass on are no different than us. The ONLY difference in us and them is that we live in a body that can be seen, and they don’t. What they sowed, they must also reap. They are being awakened, the same as we are. They are putting on the mind of Christ, just as we are. For some, it will take longer than others, the same as here in this earthen realm. There is no doubt in my mind that there are those wanting forgiveness from some of us, just like we want from some people that we may have hurt, or betrayed. And it MUST be done. You see, we can’t come into perfection, while still holding on to unforgiveness. That isn’t the image of LOVE.
As the parable of Lazarus and the rich man, some, here and there, still look at others in the wrong way. We don’t see them as Father’s Christ, because if we did, we, like the rich man, would not hold on to old thoughts. The rich man still looked at Lazarus as a man that should be doing his (the rich man’s) biding. Rather than ask Lazarus for forgiveness for the way the rich man treated Lazarus, the rich man STILL looked down on Lazarus, or looked at Lazarus as being less than the rich man was. What did the rich man say to Father Abraham? “oh send Lazarus to my family and have him tell them this and that, so that they won’t end up like me.” He still looked at Lazarus as a beggar; someone who should cater to the whims of the rich. Now, apparently, Lazarus could communicate to the living, and the rich man couldn’t. At least, not at this point in his life. The rich man didn’t want his family to feel the “heat” that he was feeling. IF he could have communicated, HE WOULD HAVE TOLD HIS OWN FAMILY, not send Lazarus to do it. We make things SO hard to understand, when if we look at the simplicity of a thing, we get true understanding.
I believe that one reason that we have had a hard time communicating with the other side is because, here in this realm, when a thought comes, we THINK that that thought is COMING FROM US. But, think on it.
I know that with me, when Father speaks to me, He speaks to me through THOUGHTS. I do not hear an audible voice. I’m not saying that those who say that they do hear an audible voice don’t. But, with me, it is through THOUGHTS that Father speaks to me. It is through the Christ mind that Father speaks to me.
Now, THINKING, that thoughts are coming from ourselves, and on top of that, not being sensitive to the Spirit that is in EVERYONE, many times we may miss out on someone in the invisible realm, communicating to us. Like I said in an earlier part, I HEARD my dad call my name, and those around me DID NOT hear it.
Look at Paul. On the road to Damascus, HE HEARD THE VOICE OF JESUS, while those around him didn’t. He SAW a bright light, while others didn’t.
Look at our Example, Jesus. At His baptism, HE HEARD FATHER SPEAK, those around Him didn’t.
Look at John, on the isle of Patmus. In the Book of Revelation, it says, “I turned to SEE THE VOICE……,”. In another chapter, we are told, “I HEARD another voice…” When you search it out, this word “heard” actually means “SEE, TO PERCEIVE CLEARLY”. Now, John and Paul were the same kind of people that we are. They were not super spiritual or perfect people. They were SENITIVE TO THE SPIRIT WORLD, because that’s where each voice that they heard was at!!
Those in the invisible realm are always around us. (Heb 12:1). And the fact that we don’t clearly perceive them is because, for one thing, we’ve been taught to not communicate with the “dead”. But, since Jesus died for ALL MEN, there is NOT ONE PERSON WHO IS DEAD!! Many are “unaware”, but, not dead. The real reason we, or most, can’t communicate, is because it is tried to do so with the carnal mind. And we are plainly told, “the carnal cannot enter heaven (the invisible realm.”) Sensitivity, being sensitive to the spirit is the only way we can communicate with that realm.
I’d like to share an experience that I had, years ago, with you. I didn’t know the Lord as my Savior, yet. I was young and lived with a young man, named Gary. We loved each other very much. We promised each other, the way young people promise things, that which ever one of us that died first would in some way contact the other one. Gary was killed in a car accident on his way home, one night. I loved this man so much, and yet, I felt a peace, when he passed on. Little did I know THEN, that Father had always been with me, in me, and I had always been One with Him. But, anyway, one night I went to bed and Gary came to my mind so strongly. As I laid there, I remembered the promise we had made to one another. So, I spoke aloud, “Gary, if you are around me, please give me some kind of sign.” I’m sure a lot of people have done this, and just forgot about it and wrote it off to “grieving”. I sleep on my right side, was just getting into that place of not being asleep, but, very drowsy. I “felt” the side of my bed go down, like someone had sat down on the side of the bed. It was so real, that it actually turned me over onto my back. I KNEW then that those on the other side, were around us. Then, when I accepted my Savior, I read:
Heb. 12:1, “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses…”
I was satisfied with that experience, whereas, IF I had known that we were to be sensitive to the invisible realm, I may have had a greater experience; OR, Father may have allowed this to happen to PREPARE me for the time when He would awaken me to what He is awakening MANY to NOW.
Now, some may think that it’s not important to know about the invisible realm. But, Father has made me to know that it is VITAL, to His Firstfruits, not only to the learning about that realm, but, to the helping of those on that side. We are being awakened, or prepared, if you will, for the work that Father will do THROUGH US, in that realm, just as He is in this earthen realm.
We cannot hear Father with the carnal mind. The Mind of Christ is through which we hear Him–PERCEIVE HIM.
That, that pertains to the invisible realm, is the reverse of what takes place, here, in this natural realm. How many times have we heard, “the cruse is being reversed”? Our consciousness is what is bringing back to our remembrance of who and what we are. It is FATHER CONSCIOUSNESS. I am not talking about the consciousness of those who think that they are mere mortal man. I am talking about those who KNOW who and what they are. THAT CONSCIOUSNESS. It is CONSCIOUSNESS that brings or manifests change, not time.
Our natural minds stay so busy throughout the day that it’s hard to quiet it down. With discipline, we are leaning to hear Father at any time. But, I have found that I go to sleep, asking the questions; listening for Him; wanting to receive what He has to tell me. But, it is in the wee, quiet hours of morning that He awakens me with what He would say. I use to think, “Oh I’ll remember, in the morning, what He has said”, and missed out on much by not getting up, right then, and writing it down. Everyone is different, and He speaks to each of us differently, but, it does take discipline and a sensitivity to hearing or perceiving Him. It is the same, I believe, to communicate with those in the invisible realm.
Dreams are the same. Most of the time we incorrectly interpret our dreams. Most of the time, when we dream about someone, it is usually, about US that the dream is trying to tell us something. But, it could also be someone trying to communicate with us; because our minds are not so busy, when we sleep.
I have heard people say, “we are all in each other.” I use to think, how in the heck can that be? Well, think about it. When Father OR one who has passed on, speaks to us, where does it take place? WITHIN US. And, we ARE spirit beings, and our actual home IS the spirit realm. Doesn’t the written Word tell us, “You are seated in heavenly places?”
We USE this illusional realm to EXPERIENCE the material things. Yes, all those on the other side, are all around us. And we need to be sensitive to hearing them. Let me say, ALL OF THIS IS BY THE LEADING OF THE SPIRIT!! It is not a part of Father’s plan, so we can just talk to whoever WE want to, it is for the PURPOSE OF HIM, that we will be led.
“THE KINGDOM OF THE SPIRIT COMES NOT WITH OBSERVATION; NEITHER SHALL THEY SAY, LO HERE, LO THERE, FOR BEHOLD THE KINGDOM OF THE SPIRIT IS WITHIN YOU.”
