Good Morning Precious and Dearly Loved Saint and Child of Our Abba Father!
“They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from the River of Delights.” Psalms 36:8. There is breakthrough power on this verse! Are you feasting at the abundance of the house of the Lord, the kingdom of heaven, or are you always more aware, and attentive and consumed with a sense of lack on the earth? We have been raised with Christ and are sitting with Him in the heavenly realms this very second! We live inside of Christ and all of His fullness of everything He is and has, has already given to us!
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3. Someone might say that those blessings are spiritual and in the heavenly realms, but I am on the earth, what good are they to me if I am here and the blessings are there? What most people fail to realize or have revelation on, is that they are no longer merely human beings, that they are new creations In Christ! That they have already died to the old man who was only a human being.
“For Christ’s Love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died… So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.” 2 Corinthians 5:14-16. We have died to the old person who did live in “lack”, but now as new creations we have a new homeland and have become citizens of heaven!!!
“Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but (YOU ARE) fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household.” Ephesians 2:19. “But our citizenship IS (not will be) in heaven.” Philippians 3:20. You have been taken out of the kingdom of darkness which was consumed with “lack”, and you have been translated into the Kingdom of God where “lack” does not exist, only abundance exists in this kingdom which has been given to us and which resides inside of us!
So we are to feast inside of the Father’s house, the kingdom of heaven, right now! We are Spiritual beings who have been given the Holy Spirit which completely connects and makes us one with Jesus! We only need our spirit senses awakened more and more! As we abide in the Holy Spirit, our spiritual senses get awakened! As the eyes of our hearts are enlightened and we can see and experience the spiritual realm.
As we behold the Lord’s glory and see ourselves in His glory, our spiritual senses are being awakened! As we set our hearts and minds on the heavenly realities, our spiritual senses are awakened! As we abide in the outpouring of the Father’s Love by the Holy Spirit, our spiritual senses are awakened! “Let us make every effort to enter that Rest.” Hebrews 4:11. We can do all this even if we feel sad, lonely, weak, sick, or don’t have any money in the earthly realm! The spirit realm is another reality and the earthly realm does not change the environment of the heavenly realm! Our hearts needs to get established in this Truth!
None of the earthly realm changes the heart of the Father! His Love is an Unfailing Love! Our sin does not dim the lights of heaven or decrease the Father’s Love for us! But our sin does affect what we experience on the earthly realm! The more we give into the flesh, the more we experience the darkness of the enemy! Our behavior affects our feelings and what we experience on the earthly realm. So we can feast on the abundance of the House of the Lord and drink deeply and heavily in the River of Delights no matter if we are feeling very depressed, fearful, weak…..
We live In Christ, in the heavenly realm, in the kingdom of God and that never changes unless we absolutely reject all these gifts of God and no longer want to have anything to do with His Love! Weakness of the flesh does not disqualify us from all the spiritual blessings that have already been given to us! God does not withhold blessings from us because we may be struggling in an area! “He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all (when we were rebels and in the depths of sin)—how will He not graciously GIVE US ALL THINGS!!!!!” Romans 8:32. Absolute rejection of Jesus and His Blood and completely disowning Jesus will disqualify us, but weakness will not!!!!!!
So even in our weakness, we can drink of the Father’s gift of abundance to us and of the River of His Delights, and the more we drink of the Spirit, the stronger and the more like Jesus we become!!!!! “Good News of Great Joy”!!!!!!!!! SHALOM!!!!!!!
