Speaker 4: Pastor Dimeji Elugbadebo
I have so much joy in my spirit. I can see that we have recorded some measure of victory in the spirit. Overcoming is from one level to another. God has bought us into a room to flourish. I call it Rehoboth. We’ve have come into an allocation in the spirit that is marked by this physical place. Also an allocation for nations has been given. I can see that the destiny of nations has been released. There’s so much victory! Thanks be to God who causes us to triumph.
Let’s see Isaiah 55:9
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
This is a prophecy of our place in the Spirit. The Lord has brought us into the ministration of Heavens. God is saying we have come into Heavens. These heavens are in Christ, for He is the compilation of Heavens. The church of the New Testament should be from Heaven that’s why ministration of Heaven will come until Heaven kisses the earth.
The Heavens are higher than the earth, because the earth is a place for culturing. Heaven is like the spirit while the earth is like the soul. I believe that this is a measure of the spiritual calling over the ministry as well as it is for the New Testament church. We are supposed to be ministering the Heavens. I am heavenly to a degree, because am a child of Hope, Faith and Love child. These are the three that abide forever. They are the representation of the heavenly life.
The essence of the church is to make us heavenly. If we can’t minister those things then we can’t make people heavenly. What makes one heavenly is not just a vision of heaven. We thank God for that. However, the heavenly life is represented in those three things (i.e. faith, hope and love). Hope is a secret, faith is a secret and love is the greatest. The church was put in place so as to reveal the secrets of hope, faith and love, which are the pathway to Godhood.
We can liken the Heavens to the Tabernacle with those three courts. The highest court is the Holiest of All, which is the ministration of resurrection. The ministration of resurrection is the same as the ministration of glory, which is of love. But we must be faith people if we must pierce the veil.
Johns’ epistles were love epistles. They can be hard to comprehend. Paul’s epistles are the keys to understanding John’s epistles, because Paul was sent to teach the faith of the Son. Therefore, when we learn faith, we can move into love. Faith makes us live; love makes us abide.
We must understand ways, because they are the faith courses that make us New Testament saints. Pauls says, “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called” (Ephesians 4:1).
That vocation is framed by ways; the things that make us priests of the New Testament. They make us professionals. A professional is a skilled labourer. That’s the difference between the milk of the Word and strong meat. “He that uses milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness” (Hebrews 5:13).
There is what is called The Vocation. When ways are taught, a vocation is allocated. This is our Heavenly calling. Our calling is Heavenly. That’s why it is separated. This faith courses are things that make us overcome. You are not victorious because of the things you have but because of Faith. It is by faith we live, for the just shall live by faith. We’re quickened by faith.
The flesh program is anti-faith. It was meant to arrange our souls in disobedience, so that we would be able to obey faith. So before we got born again, by nature we were children of wrath. Therefore the program to make us obey faith is a serious program; it is Spirit training. Those that are led by the Spirit are those that live by faith, and they are called sons of God.
Some of us don’t have accurate concept of Sonship. It’s not about physical demonstrations. Chapters 2 and 3 of the book of Revelation show the ingredients of Sonship. The signs of Sonship are purely redemptive. They bring salvation. To the Seven Churches, God promised various things: hidden manna, crown of life, white stone, tree of life, etc.
All of those things are priestly. The crown of life isn’t earthly; it is the turban of the priest. On that template is written “HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD.” The walk of faith is the walk of holiness, for it is faith that separates. Faith and only faith, because the just shall live by faith.
Allocations of faith have been coming. But now God is opening the path to love, and they are high paths. Ways communicate faith; thoughts communicate love. The ministrations of Heavens are ministrations of the incorruptible seed that brings life. That is salvation—the sign of our sonship.
How do we know we’re getting to the end? It is salvation. Overcomers will be given an iron rod for the nations. It’s not just for natural nations. We must have dominion in the spirit. We cannot govern nations or break into nations except by the power of the highest. The ministration of the Heavens communicates the power of the highest.
“For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater.”
God is bringing in rain! Rain is the teaching of righteousness; the unveiling of secret things— things that have been allocated before time began. They will no longer be mysterious. The church will have windows of heaven. That is the only way rain can come. We need that rain to culture the earth and make it bring forth after the order of heaven.
