Going to church, reading the bible, listening to Christian music will not advance your spiritual life. These activities may give you more understanding but until you are ready to lay down your life and take up your cross this leads nowhere.

What I am talking about is the sacrifice of self to advance the cause of Jesus Christ in the world. There is a destiny that God had for each of us that only we can personally discover. We can discover it only by detaching from the world and making ourselves available for the Holy Spirit. By detaching from the world--now you have time--the commodity that most Christians are not willing to give.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

"God has planted eternity in the human heart." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

"Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God." (Luke 9:62)

"The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me." (Acts 20:24)

"We have been sent to speak for Christ." (2 Corinthians 5:20)

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10)

Transcending The Veil Of Limitation

Posted 03-14-2022 at 11:22 PM by Albert Finch


"Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties, and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." - Psalm 139:23-24

The dreams we dream become the strategic road maps God gives to point us in the right direction to align us with destiny. Dreams contain power that will enable us to see what we were created to become. When we turn to the Lord we see Him as He is because the veils of limitation are taken away.

UNDERSTANDING THE SPIRIT REALM


"But whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty...But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit." - 2 Corinthians 3:16-18 NASB

There is no time or distance in the spirit realm. It is not confined to time as we know it in our day-to-day lives. God created time and space for us as the Bible states: "With the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as one day." - 2 Peter 3:8

The Holy Spirit can cause us to transcend time and space barriers of the past, present, and future in our dreams by imparting glimpses of the spiritual realm as we sleep. The Spirit of the Lord enters our dreams, to remove the veils from our faces, so we will be able to see Him in His transcendent glory. When we see Him we will be like Him. He is transforming us from one realm of glory into a higher realm of glory as He reveals Himself to us.

Science has proven that light can travel seven times circling the world in one second; however, our thoughts travel even faster. As God's messengers, angels travel at the speed of thought. Angels enter our dreams through the doors of our hearts to bring messages from God's eternal realm.

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings." - Jeremiah 17:9-10

We must activate and train the human spirit to open the door of our hearts by inviting the Holy Spirit to search, test, and teach us. For it is out of the abundance of the heart that our life flows. The Spirit of God will show us glimpses of our nature and our responses to our natural life situations through a spiritual window. The Bible tells us: "He who covers his sin will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy." - Proverbs 28:13


SEND AN INVITATION TO THE HOLY SPIRIT



PRAYER:

Dear Lord, please remove the veils that blind my eyes and give me insight with understanding, the spirit of wisdom, with revelation knowledge. Let me become a seer of Your glory. Anoint my eyes to see and ears to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying. The spirit of revelation gives me access to the heart, mind, and words of Christ, where all the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven are hidden. Immerse me in the love of Jesus as it flows into my heart. Amen (Colossians 1:9).

God's glory is seen through the eyes of our hearts (spirit). Faith enables us to engage and access spiritual understanding. The prophetic words of a dream interpretation help to frame doorways into future manifestation. Faith is being sure that the things we hope for and dream about are realized, even if we do not see them. God commanded the universe to be formed so that what is seen was brought out of the invisible realm of the Spirit. Hope produces the evidence of faith, and love is the substance or tracks that spiritual gifts run on...God is love!
