ENTER IN

 

  1. *Read Matthew 16: 13 – 26 – Peter states, “…you are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” Peter saw beyond the seamless robe, flesh and appearance and he saw the “unseen”.  *Read 2Cor. 4: 18 – “While we look not at the things that are seen, but at the things that are unseen; for the things that are seen are temporary, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”

vs. 17 – “Blessed are you Simon…” he entered the world of the unseen (perception), the Spirit.

Perception definition: Seeing beyond the seen world, our culture, tradition, education and knowledge.

 

Jesus says to Nicodemus, “you must be born again to see (enter) the kingdom of God.” John 3:3.

What you enter into will enter into you.

When you by faith enter the unseen, the unseen enters you.

When you enter the Kingdom, the Kingdom enters into you.

When you enter into Christ, Love, Joy, Peace, Giving, Purpose, Destiny enters into you and manifests through you.

 

NOTE: So whatever God presents to you, enter it with all your heart, be it revelation, truth, etc.

 

  1. *Exodus 33: 18 – 23 – Moses says, “Show me your glory” God says you cannot see my face and live and arranges for Moses to see a his back.

“You shall see my back (hereafter) and see my glory.” Back signifies the hereafter or time to come. Taking this idea of hereafter from Mt. Sinai to the Mt. of Transfiguration ( Matthew 17:1-5) – we see Jesus, who is “the glory of God”, transfigured into His hereafter. Moses saw his hereafter, his tomorrow which IS THE GLORY OF GOD IN CHRIST and entered into that glory / that experience.

 

NOTE: Moses was changed into his hereafter, returned to Mt. Sinai and came down from the mountain with the glory of God shining from his face. He brought back the hereafter (tomorrow) into his now.

 

NOTE:  We need to come from a mountain of meeting, the place of revelation, perception, the unseen, and changed into our hereafter. To bring the glory and person of Jesus is into a needy world.

*Col. 1: 27 “Christ in you the hope of glory”

 

  1. *Read 1 Kings 18 – Elijah had just defeated and killed 450 prophets of Baal on Mr. Carmel after 3 ½ years of drought and lack. But God had promised rain. So for those years all Elijah had heard and “saw” was rain, rain, rain morning, noon, and night. He had entered the unseen and carried the hereafter in his heart.

 

He carried water where there was no water.

He carried a supply where there was no supply.

He carried abundance were there was no abundance.

* ! Kings 18:41-46. So Elijah said to King Ahab “I hear the sound of  an abundance of rain.” 

Elijah sent his servant to the end of Mt. Carmel to look for rain clouds over the sea six times, but it was on the 7th time that he saw a cloud the size of a man’s fist. He then had his servant tell Ahab “Get going back to Jezreel before the rain comes!”

 

NOTE: People who carry the unseen, the hereafter in their hearts can handle today as over comers because they live according to their hereafter / unseen.

 

  1. People, who lose their hereafter, return to the past. (E.g. Peter, after seeing Jesus die, lost his hereafter and went back to fishing.)

 

People who lose there hereafter try to make the most of “just” today.

(E.g. Judas heard Jesus spoke of His death and lost his hereafter and thought he could seize the opportunity to “cash in today”. After all there was no future with a dead Jesus!)

 

  1. Who believes in God? You do? Well, He believes in you and has prepared His hereafter for you. Will you enter into His hereafter, His tomorrow that He has prepared for you?

Enter into the dimension of the unseen, the realm of the Spirit, the journey of faith, “the next level” in Christ.

*Read 1Cor. 2: 9 – 10 – “For the things which the eye has not seen, nor…”

God, by His Spirit reveals the unseen things of the Spirit to us now.

See the glory of tomorrow in Christ and start living it out as never before so that He might be seen, known and worshipped!

 

Here is our birthright - *Read Hebrews 10: 19 – 22 – “… confidence to enter the Holy of Holies by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way… through the veil…”

 

Let Abraham the father of our faith be our example:

*Read Romans 4: 17 – “Abram called those things that are not (seen) as though they are (seen!).”
