10th and Final Day of “Stepping Beyond the Veil Fast”

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

4th Day of “Stepping Beyond the Veil Fast”

Let this be the meditation of your heart today.

Our prayer and fasting focus for today is Malachi 3:1-3.

The intent of this ten day fast is to “prepare the way.” Malachi 3:1 says…The Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple. You are the temple of The Lord. 1 Corinthians 3:16

There is a generation of those whom seek The Lord, who seek His face. Psalms 24:6 says this is the generation of Jacob.  Jacob was a pursuer of The Lord, he wanted encounter with the living God. We read in Genesis 28:12 that Jacob’s journey brings him to the stairs/ladder of ascending…he sought out God and found the place of ascension, found the ladder into Heaven. In John 1:51 Jesus says, “…hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man. Jesus is that ladder upon whom we ascend and descend.

We are of that same generation, seeking the face of Jesus, and Malachi 3:1 says that as the way is prepared and we are seeking that He will suddenly come. Suddenly means you can’t plan it, you don’t know when , it will just happen.  It will just come and overtake you and carry you in the flow of the river of God. The river is always flowing, what happens is that you align yourself with it and get caught up in its current. Woohoo!!

Malachi 3:2 says Who can endure the day of His coming? Who can stand when He appears? Psalms 24:3-4 says, Who may ascend INTO the hill/mount of The Lord.? or who may stand IN His Holy Place? verse 4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart.

When The Lord comes its like a Refiners Fire, burning out the chaff, purging the dross, purging the hands(fleshly nature) and purifying the heart(soulish nature).

This is the work of the cross, the price has been paid for us to walk as Sons and Daughters of God, but most of us don’t walk IN the reality or full provision of our inheritance of the kingdom of God.

Romans 12:1-2 reminds us to present our bodies (that fleshly nature) as a living sacrifice to the refiners fire, to not be conformed to this world (our soulish nature) but to be transformed (through the refiners fire) by the renewing of your mind/heart.

Malachi 3:3 …after the Fire we see that place of STANDING IN Him…an offering IN Righteousness.  Psalms 24:5 says He shall receive blessing from The Lord , and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

In 2 Corinthians 5:16 we read, Therefore from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer.  Jesus has inaugurated a new way of living for us…having torn through the veil of His “flesh,” Hebrews 9:20, so that we can follow Him and walk fully as New Creation beings Standing IN Him…IN His Righteousness. 2 Corinthians 5:17-21.

Let’s step beyond the veil of our flesh so that we are no longer known according to our flesh.
