Hebrews 12 is being sustenance at this moment. The Word is our bread that comes down from Heaven. I have to admit we are living times which are difficult to fathom. They are difficult for our flesh to deal with. But the Word brings to our spirit a window to glance into the spiritual realm and see all the miracles, the mountains which move, the obstacles removed, seas which part, are ALL THERE. When we look into the Word we are looking into OUR MIRACLE. Once we LET THE SAME SPIRIT WHO PENNED ALL THE WORDS, to reveal the HIDDEN PLACES, the keys to our opening the heavens HERE on the earth, we shall walk into the JOY which I want to speak about here.
What the writer EXPLAINS, is that Jesus HAD Joy in the Cross. This joy gave Him the ability to deny His fleshy existence, so that in dying, He rose opening a new dimension which had no limit, and a dimension which reaches out to every soul which becomes redeemed. The way is open through the JOY of the Cross.
How does this apply to us?
I believe THESE DIFFICULT TIMES are being used by the Lord to take us AWAY FROM OUR CONCENTRATION ON EARTHLY EXPERIENCES.
Whatever difficulty we face right now, has to be confronted not by the fear of an earthly mind, but the vision of a renewed mind. We need to fix in our mind that the MIND stayed on the Word is a mind spiritually enlightened.
We cannot depend on the financial system, we cannot depend on people, nor science. We need to have a SPIRITUAL VISION. We must see that ALL WE CAN DEPEND ON IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
We return to the JOY OF JESUS FOR THE CROSS, we must also share in that same JOY. What is that JOY?
That joy is a vision of victory, dominion, prosperity even when things are DARK, DEAD, DESPERATE. Even when Jesus was suffering pain and separation, it was only a temporary phase, because the FATHER WILLED THAT HIS SON BREAK THE BONDS OF DEATH, THE EARTH, THE NATURAL REALM, THE HADES REALM….
So, we passing through this SEASON of apparent instability, sickness, poverty…the Father is WILLING YOU TO ARISE…arise shine for your light has come Isaiah 60:1.
He will bring you into a JOY that will cause you to break all power of death, despair, so that you will arise into the place of eternity which Jesus gave to us.
When Jesus spoke to the disciples in John 14, about rooms, mansions, houses, it is badly translated. The word is moné, which means PLACE…not mansion. Jesus was assuring the disciples about their PLACE IN THE SPIRIT. We all have a place, a place of authority and victory…
Right NOW GOD WANTS TO FILL US WITH THE JOY OF FAITH, NO MATTER WHAT WE GO THROUGH NOW, WE SHALL OVERCOME BECAUSE OF THE JOY…
READ HEBREWS 1:9, Jesus lived in the anointing, power of Joy…which enabled Him to complete an eternal mission.
You too have an eternal destiny…receive the JOY WHICH SUSTAINS, ENABLES, AND COMPLETES YOUR DESTINY!!!
