"That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovest me before the foundation of the world.
O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them."
Jesus prayed that we would be one as he is one with the Father. His desire was for us to be united in every way in him. It is his desire for us to come together to stand as one against the evils of our day and against the terror, and darkness of our day and this hour. It was never intended for us to be divided and separated by denomination's, theology, doctrine, religious tradition, and many other things. In Heaven there is a Government that is established that works as One unit, One voice, One Supreme Commander in Chief and Lord, One Judge of all, his name is above all others, Jesus! Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this. (Isaiah 9:7)
His Government shall be established on Earth as it is in Heaven. It is even now coming, and shall be fully established here as it is in Heaven. We all have a part in bringing Heaven to Earth. We all have to do our part and allow God to establish his Will and Way in us, so that this can be accomplished. He told me this week while studying that he is writing his laws upon my heart. He has put them in my mind, and speaks them to me throughout the day (Heb.10:16). I meditate in them as I have been praying; Lord, show me your ways, and teach me your paths. The ancient pathways to your Glory. You see, not everyone wants to know them, but I do. I go after them with all my heart. I want all of Him. I want all that belongs to me. I don't want to share any of it with the enemy, for its all been paid for and given to me, so why shouldn't I receive it? Why should I live a mundane lifeless existence, just because others want to. When Jesus died on that cross, he reconciled everything back to us. He gave us all access back to him, and our Father in Heaven. Yet, people don't want to believe that. They say they do, but really, they don't. They only want to believe some of it, but not all of it.
When we read the passage of scripture above we read Jesus praying to his Father, and asking him to make us one, as he and his Father are one. He goes on to pray in verse 24 that for those that God has given him would be with him where he is, so that we could behold his Glory. Wow! We can be where he is. He isn't here, he has risen! He now is seated on the right hand of his Father in Heaven, making intercession for you and me! He wants us to be with him where he is, so that we can behold his Glory. Did you know that you can't do that from here? You have to do that from there. You see he wants to show us his Glory. He is not withholding it from us. He is not holding anything back from us any longer, but we must go up there to get it. We have entered a time that he is saying to his church "Come up here"!
So, how do we do this? How can we as human beings go into that spiritual place in Heaven, our home and behold his Glory? It's easy to do; it's through the Spirit of God. When we became born again believers we were changed. We were equipped to ascend into the heavenly realms of the Kingdom and be with our Lord Jesus. I know religion will tell you no you can't do this, and if you do you are practicing witchcraft or some other mumbo jumbo occult practice, but this simply isn't true. It was this same kind of teaching from religious teachers of Jesus' time that got him crucified. Like I said before, not everyone believes it, nor do they want it, because to actually be in a place to hear from God, and see God, and be where he is takes laying down your own flesh, your own will, your own agenda, your own desires and do things his way. Most of the church does not want to. Most of the Christians don't want to pay that high of a price. Most do not want that kind of relationship with their Father. Most like things just the way they are, however the problem is God don't. Our Father wants more from us. He wants to hear from us more frequently, and see our faces. He wants to impart some of the deeper more important strategies to us for this hour, but we have to go there to get it.
Yes, he hears us when we pray. Yes, he is with us always, and he will never leave us or forsake us. All that is true, but what I'm talking about are higher ways, better strategies to fight the enemy. Walking in his paths, and seeing his glory changes you. It changes you and transforms you to be more like him. When this happens things around you change. This is how we will become one. This is how his kingdom will come, and his will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Because in this next great move of God, many are going to catch on to this, and begin to change so drastically that others will stare at them, just as the israelites did Moses when he came down from the mountain. There will be a generation of believers that will want more, operate in the more, move in and out of the Spirit right in front of us, and leave us all wondering what just happened. Don't you want to be a part of that and not just watch? Wouldn't you like to walk in heavenly places, and learn from just men made perfect? Wouldn't you like to behold Jesus face to face, and devise strategies with him to defeat your enemies?
He said that in HIM we live and move and have our being! I for one am seeking the ancient pathways. I for one have told him yes Lord, I will come. I will learn of you. I will seek Wisdom and position myself at her gates. I will enquire of the Lord, and lean my ear to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the churches, to your Sons and your daughters in this hour. I will be as John the Beloved and lean in close to your heart to hear your heartbeat. When is the last time that you asked Jesus what was on his heart? What does he want from me today? What is he saying? He is saying to you today "Come up here; come higher so that I can have your full attention. Come so that you can rest. Come and take your seat next to me, for where I am; there you may be also." Amen~
