I learned something today. This morning our church hosted a "seer". He spoke to us about his experiences in getting to know God better. I learned that Moses prayed to know God's ways, His face, and His presence, and that God's logic is way different from ours. For example, fire from heaven does not destroy, but enhances. In Jeremiah 33:3 the Word says "Call to me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand)."
Seer can mean "stargazer" or "one who sees the unseen." Isaiah 45: 3 " and I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name." There is a grab and release factor for a seer. Colossians 4:4 "That I may proclaim it fully and make it clear [speak boldly and unfold that mystery], as is my duty." Everything in the heavenly realm is available to us. It is "beyond the veil", but there is a seer potential in each of us.
Our speaker for the day spent about six months praying in his literal closet, under his clothes, asking God for more of Him and every day God said "I love you." Then one day he felt something warm and wonderful come over him, like a Comforter, and he understood that he had faith for "seeing". All fibers of his being felt love, as though he was seated in a luxury vehicle of the highest quality and the seat was adjusted for perfect driving (We are seated in heavenly places far above all principalities and powers.) He was positioned in the Spirit with the Presence washing over him. An angel came and he heard a harp. Then fear set in and he was aware that he thought perhaps this could be a set-up for a demonic encounter. Instantly he was aware that he had tested the Holy Spirit and grieved Him and he was back in his earthly body and situation!
The second time he had an encounter in the Spirit realm, he saw himself standing in his own bed, with the bed actually through his torso--he was a spirit. Then he was back in his body. He experienced three months of visitations like this. In Song of Solomon the writer says that he sleeps but his heart is awake--the heart he speaks of is the spirit, which engages with God on a new level.
Life in heaven has a direct impact on life on earth, which should reflect heavenly life. Think about it. We are supposed to look just like Jesus. In the Spirit realm is glory and goodness. We are citizens. Ambassadors. An ambassador is a person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity. We are now living in a boundary governed by the Kingdom. There is no restricted flow between us and the Father. All the names of God, all the formerly unspeakable names, are hidden and manifest in "Jesus"! The law is a work FOR me. what I carry in heaven I carry in earth. Like an avatar! There is now a constant flow since Jesus became the perfect and complete sacrifice. Fellowship of the spirit is constant and we are, or should be, presentations of the Father at all times. We have no reason for boredom. Our relationship with Him is beyond a gift. It is abundant life (John 10:10). We have length and quality of life--excessive life!
This realm is our entitlement. And that is what I learned this morning.
