Make Yourself known Oh Lord, that the nations may tremble at Your presence.
The fasting and prayer focus for today is Isaiah 64: 1-2. Oh, that You would rend the heavens…
In this ten days of prayer and fasting our focus has been on stepping through the veil of our flesh and soul, that which keeps us from stepping into greater intimacy and relationship with Jesus. Keeps us from being aware of where we are seated with Him in heavenly places, keeps us earth bound (conscious). Keeps us from stepping into His dimensions. It’s the veil over the eyes of our heart, that hinders us from seeing in the spirit.
Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is within you, in Luke 17:21. The way, into the Kingdom is through the Spirit of The Lord within. We were created to be SPIRIT, soul, and body, but through sin were flipped inside out and became body, soul, and SPIRIT. Where we are led around by our body and soul instead of our Spirit leading our soul and our soul leading our body.
Through the work of the cross, Jesus paid the price for us to be returned back into right relationship with the Father. The problem is that our flesh and soul still thinks it in control. This is where Paul implores us to present our bodies as a living sacrifice, die to it and all its cravings and desires.and to conform our minds/soul and to be transformed by the renewing of our soul. Renewing it after what? Renewing it to the culture and likeness of The Kingdom of Heaven, after Christ Jesus.
Our hearts cry of rend the heavens is part of our seeking and pursuing. A laying down of flesh and soul as that sacrifice for the fire to burn up. To separate the control of body and soul over our spirit man. To rend means to separate into parts, to tear apart. Jesus already tore through the veil of His flesh, Hebrew 10:20, we are to follow Him. Our desire is to be clothed with our heavenly habitation, our spirit man, as our outward tent, habitation, that which we have been living from, is being burned up by the refiners fire. As mortality(this earthly and soulish mindset, our mortal soul and mind), is being swallowed up by life (the kingdom of Heaven within our spirit), so that we will not be found naked and unclothed: meaning not to be clothed by our spirit man. Read 2 Corinthians 5: 1-4
Revelations 3:17-20 because we say in our own mortality, we have all we need and have no need of God, we are blind and don’t know we are naked, unclothed. Walking around in our mortality, our flesh man. But The Spirit of the Lord counsels us to buy form Him Gold refined in the fire…step beyond the fleshly, soulish man and be transformed by the renewing of your soul…repent, change/renew your mind…then your nakedness will not be revealed, for your spirit will clothe and cover and led your soul and flesh…and the eyes of your heart being renewed will SEE what your spirit already sees and knows. You will be able to BEHOLD…who stands at the door…inviting us to His banqueting table…The Revealing of His Glory on us.
Make known your Name (that Place IN You) oh Lord, that the nations may tremble at Your presence.
I pray The Father has blessed you during this time of fasting and that you may Step Beyond the Veil…Into greater Glory. God Bless
