Word For Today: September 13, 2019: When God Speaks He Releases His Keys!
Good Morning Beloved,
As I wait here in His presence this morning, I feel such a drawing of the Spirit to come up higher that He has things He must show and reveal to each of our hearts today.
The word of God says in Isaiah 55:8-11 Message Bible
“I don’t think the way you think. The way you work isn’t the way I work. "God's Decree. “For as the sky soars high above earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think.
Just as rain and snow descend from the skies and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth, Doing their work of making things grow and blossom, producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry.
So will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them.
In the King James it is written like this:
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 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:
11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Beloved there is a genuine work and calling of God today that is calling us to “come up here” found in Revelation 4:1. There are things God must speak to us, show us, warn us, impart to us that can only come when we spend that quality time with Him in His presence.
Many of us have had prophetic word spoken over our lives and families. Many of us have prayed and God has given us His word to stand on. We know His word will not return to him void, but prosper where he sends it and accomplishes what He please, yet many have not yet see them manifest on the earth.
The promises of God are yeah and amen, and His word won’t return void, but how do they manifest on earth? How does God desire to bring the invisible promises and words that are more real than what we see in the natural world into existence?
Do any of us have any idea on how God will do it apart from the Holy Spirit telling us or showing us?
Beloved, If it is your birthday and I purchase a gift on line for you and send it to your house via shipping you would be blessed, “because a gift is being sent to you.”
Now the question is, Do you have that gift now? It is not in your possession, it has been ordered, paid for and shipped. So why don’t you have it now. It is a done deal is it not? Yet, why do you have to wait for it to come?
Because when you purchase something on line or even as a store as a gift for someone, IT STILL NEEDS TO BE DELIVERED! It can be either be delivered by the mailman, UPS, FEDEX or some other way for you to POSSESS IT.
BELOVED OF THE LORD, “THERE IS STILL A PROCESS OF DELIVERY THAT MUST MANIFEST WE MUST LEARN TO OPERATE IN.”
In the Lord’s prayer Jesus taught us to pray. He said to pray to the Father, “Our Father who are in heaven... where is the Father right now? Where are the answers we need? Where are the promises God has for us spoken from? THEY ARE IN HEAVEN, or in His HEAVENLY REALM OF HIS GLORY.
That realm is where God speaks and release the answers to our prayer. When God answers us, or speaks a “word” or “promise” to us it is first spoken and released in heavenly realm. For it was already written in his book before we were even made.
So the Lord answers us by “revealing” his thoughts and plans He has for us from before we are born that meets our present need, changes our present circumstances to align with his will. That is why we must seek him, hear him and speak and do exactly and only what he reveals to us. So we must COME UP TO GET THOSE INSTRUCTIONS... AND FIND THE DELIVERY SYSTEM!
Yet Jesus tells us to pray, “hollowed be thy name.. LET YOUR KINGDOM COME... (the reality of all God desires, his words, his will, his promises, his covenant) LET YOUR WILL BE DONE....... ON EARTH... where? ON EARTH.... AS IT IS HEAVEN.
Why would Jesus tell us to pray this if it were not needed for us to do so. Every word of God, every promise of God, every answered prayers is first spoken and released from God’s mouth in heaven with one intended target.. TO MANIFEST ON THE EARTH in our lives, families and situations we face.
So the Lord is now calling us to “come up here” through the open door standing open in heaven in Revelation 4:1 for a purpose, “so He can SHOW US THE THINGS TO COME AND HERE AFTER.
Beloved, what does that exactly mean for us? Why do we need to seek the Lord, wait upon him, and allow him to lift us up in the Spirit out of the earthly realm.
Why must we not be moved by what we see and hear around us and come up to see and hear from the up here vantage point of heaven?
Beloved God has keys, the keys of David, the keys of His kingdom to put in our hands and to use them. We use them when we speak out of our mouth ON THE EARTH that which God has spoken and released out of heaven. We use them when we put into action and do everything God tell us to do.
In our obedience to COME UP, to hear and receive the word and actions God desires to tell us and show us, WE OPEN UP THE PORTALS, THE HEAVENS ,FOR GOD’S DELIVERY SYSTEM TO WORK AND RELEASE THE ANSWERS AND HIS PROMISES ON EARTH AS IT IS HEAVEN.
We are the Lord’s Ambassadors to speak what He is speaking in His name and under his authority so it will manifest on earth. We are AMBASSADORS OF HIS KINGDOM ON EARTH to demonstrate and do everything He shows us IN THE HEAVENLY REALM in his name and under his authority so it will manifest on earth.
This is exactly the glory God the Father gave His son to do on earth, and it is the glory God the Father has given us to do in Jesus name that Jesus prayed for us to have in John 17. HE ASKED THE FATHER TO GIVE US THE SAME GLORY HE HAD.. TO BE ONE WITH THEM, AS THEY ARE ONE!
Let us get these words burned in our hearts today: ON EARTH.. ON EARTH.. AS IT IS HEAVEN... PRAY THY KINGDOM COME.. THEY WILL BE DONE...... ON EARTH... ON EARTH.. AS IT IS HEAVEN.
Beloved of the Lord, is our praying we pray on earth to be arbitrary? Is it to pray what we think we need or want, or what we think other needs?
Is it to pray to God to bless what we want to do for him in His name? Or is prayer something more powerful then bringing our thoughts and understanding of things to God for him to answer?
Isaiah 55 reveals to us how “to get the keys” of releasing the promises of God, the words of God, to manifest on the earth. It begins with us having the proper perspective or the activity and work of heaven.
Verse 8 and 9:
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
What are God’s thought on ‘how to bring the gift to your house?” Does he want to use FedEX, (maybe angels) UPS (maybe a raven) or the US Postal service (other brothers and sisters in Christ. Or does he want you to get it directly from him in another form of a miracle?
How would we ever know those answers if we don’t seek the face of God or inquire of Him in His throne room? He says, my thoughts are not your thoughts, or your ways are not my ways. He says, my ways, my thoughts are ABOVE YOURS!
Beloved, that means none of us know “how, when, or what delivery system” God wants to use to bring that answers to our prayers, or promises to manifest on the earth.
Many times we are praying incorrectly by praying “what we think or how we think” God should bring it to us. Many times we just guess on what God desires and we don’t see what God said manifesting on earth.
Many times we just do nothing and think God will just do it and we can go on our merry way. We just don’t yet understand how God created us to function with him as his ambassadors on the earth or become a wheel within a wheel.
Yet God has thoughts and plans for us in the up here place through the open door standing open for us in heaven. He is calling us higher to tell us how to get the instruction, strategies, plans of what He desires to do and what He wants to bring on earth.
The working and operation of heavens and the use and power of the keys to the kingdom do not come through human wisdom or human understanding or from this earth.
They come through revelation and in power of the Word of God, the plans of God, the thoughts of God revealed in you and through you to release upon the earth. To get them we have to come up higher where He dwells to receive them.
Beloved, This is why Revelation chapter 4 is so important. John is about to be lifted up through the door in heaven. He is going to “come up here” where the very throne of God is.
Why? God is going to reveal to him the “operation of heaven.” He is going to get in his hands the “keys to the Kingdom” to use and proclaim upon the earth.
Precious saints of God, The Lord Jesus told Peter and the disciples that God is giving us the “keys to kingdom” to use and when we use them we can bind, (close doors) and loose (open doors) to what is ALREADY SPOKEN AND DONE IN HEAVEN UPON THE EARTH.
The call to “come up here” is for us to walk in a new dimension of his glory. WE are to walk in a new dimension of kingdom authority and power using the keys he gives us as we become “SEATED WITH HIM IN HEAVENLY PLACES” in reality.
He wants us to “get the keys” and use them as His ambassadors on the earth to allow every single word God has spoken to us, every promise, every answered prayer to become reality upon the earth.
He desires to manifest His glory, his power, his answers, his miracles in our lives and situations by us in perfect alignment with him so as we speak and intercede on earth all God said and promised from heaven will come forth to manifest on earth.
How does this happen? It happens by the Lord training the gaze of our soul to continually to be lifted up before Him in his presence so we can hear everything God wants to tell us, speak everything God tells us to speak, and do and put into motion all God tells us to do... to BRING FORTH THE ANSWERS FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH.
This is what Jesus did every minute of his life on earth. He waited upon the Father to speak from heaven, to show him from heaven, to guide him from heaven to what the Father desired Jesus to do to manifest on the earth.
How many cried out to him, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on us? He would ask, what do you desire? I want to walk, I want to see, I need my sick one healed, I need my dead one to arise?
As Jesus lived in the realm of where the Father’s thoughts were, the Father’s ways were, he was able to hear and see exactly what the Father desired. He was able to get step by step instructions from the Father’s from heaven and he did them on the earth and miracles came forth.
The Father that heard the prayers of his people, the hurting in his people, sent Jesus to be the “answering conduit” of God’s the Father’s, love, and glory to be seen on earth.
Everything Jesus did and said was “from above” not the earth. Every word, every action was guiding him from His father’s thoughts, His father’s plans and purposes.
Because Jesus lived in that place of continued fellowship with the Father through the same Holy Spirit we are filled with, he completely obeyed the father and so he will do so in us!
Every thought of the Father, every way of the Father, was completely manifested on earth through Jesus Christ. That why he could tell Phillip, have I been with you this long Phillip, if you have seen me, you have seen the Father.
Philip don’t you see “I have the keys of the Kingdom in my hand.” The keys that have united me as one with my Father, so everything he says, everything he desires he tells me, because he dearly and tenderly loves me happens on the earth. Does not the works I did, Philip, testify of the Father?
Philip because the Father loves me so much, I do everything He says, I use his keys, “his thoughts and plans for me and those he sends me to do” and I execute them on earth as in heaven SO MY FATHER IS GLORIFIED.
Phillip, God the Father’s thoughts are not human, God the Father’s way are not human, as the heavens are above the earth so are the Fathers’ thoughts and ways above mans.
I came from the Father, and I know his ways, so I seek his heart and plans and I get them because the Father loves me, so I live and move in the ways of heaven, and thoughts of heaven and I am the Fathers vessel to reveal them upon the earth.
Do not the blind see? Do not the lame walk? Did I not heal the broken hearted, open prison doors and raise the dead? Did I do this in my own name or authority Philip? I did not. Philip if you have seen the Father you have seen me.
But Phillip there is more, I am going to pray for you and the rest of the disciples and all those that will believe your words in every generation and I am going to give you THAT VERY SAME GLORY THE FATHER GAVE ME, SO WE CAN BE ONE, I IN HIM, HIM IN ME, AND YOU IN US, SO THE WORLD WILL KNOW THE FATHER LOVES YOU AS HE LOVES ME.
THE WORKS I DID THAT SAW MY FATHER DO, THE WORDS I SPOKE THE FATHER GAVE ME FROM HEAVEN TO SPEAK YOU ALSO WILL DO AND EVEN GREATER WORKS YOU SHALL DO BECAUSE I GO TO THE FATHER.
Beloved, If God’s thought are not ours, and His ways are not ours, and if his ways and thoughts are above ours, then we must come up here with him to get them as Jesus did every day of his life in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We must rise up out of the “natural mind, the natural world that see things from the god of this world perspective to come up to see, hear, receive the thoughts, plans and strategies of the Real God who is our God in heaven, blessed be His name.
Because of Isaiah 55, Jeremiah 29:11 takes on a brand new meaning for us when we understand the keys of the kingdom reality. God says, I know the thoughts and plans I have for you.
In Revelation 4:1 there is a door standing upon in heaven and the voice of Jesus is calling to us today, COME UP HERE, SO I CAN SHOW YOU...... THE THINGS... THAT MUST COME AFTER....
Included in those things are God’s thought and plan for the next seconds in your life and family, the next hours, the next days, the next weeks, months and years. They are not a mystery to God, He wrote them in a book about us before we were born.
Psalm 139: 16 “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
If they are already written, then they must be revealed. Where? They are to be revealed in us ON EARTH AS IT IS HEAVEN.
JESUS SAID, PRAY TO THE FATHER, LET YOUR KINGDOM COME, LET YOUR WILL... ALL THAT IS WRITTEN ABOUT YOU, YOUR LIFE, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR CHURCH.. BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS HEAVEN.
If God wrote them in a book before we were formed, then His desire is to share them with you, give them to you, and manifest every single one of them for your life and family. He wants to reveal them to you and through you.
How do you get them? You get them by “coming up here” until God shows you, tells you, or demonstrates his thoughts and plans for you exactly as Jesus did it.
Jesus used the keys of the Kingdom and the whole world was transformed. He has given us his keys again and restoring their reality in and to us for the whole world will be transformed again by the Kingdom of God.
Beloved, God the Father wants to speak to you. He wants to talk to you. He wants to reveal to you everything he wrote in his book concerning your life and family. He does not want you to guess, or walk on this earth as a blind man trying to find what God wants.
He wants you to know. He wants to share his heart with you. His thoughts are not our thoughts, and his ways are not our ways. As the heavens are above the earth so are my ways above yours.
He says through Jeremiah, “ I know the thoughts and plans I have for you, thoughts of your well being and for peace. Beloved, don’t you want to know them? He continues, my thoughts are not for evil, “deliver us from evil” but that you have hope in your final outcome.
Psalm 37: 23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. God wants to reveal how he releases our answers, our promises to manifest on the earth as in heaven now.
2nd Corinthians 5:7 tell us we are to walk by faith, not by sight.
I want to end this post with what Jesus said to Simon Peter and I pray the Holy Spirit breathes upon these words and burns the reality of true Kingdom life in us through them.
Beloved, though we have God’s word, his promises, his prophetic words to us and we believe him and we want them, we must now draw even closer to him for God to show us his heart for them to manifest on the earth as God has said.
He has given us the “keys of David, the Keys of the kingdom to “release” loose God’s word on earth and to bind through God’s word (close every demonic door that would stop them)on earth MUST BE ALREADY BOUND OR LOOSED IN HEAVEN.
17 Then Jesus answered him, “Blessed [happy, spiritually secure, favored by God] are you, Simon son of Jonah, because flesh and blood (mortal man) did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
18 And I say to you that you are [d]Peter, and on this [e]rock I will build My church; and the [f]gates of Hades (death) will not overpower it [by preventing the resurrection of the Christ].
19 I will give you the keys (authority) of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind [forbid, declare to be improper and unlawful] on earth [g]will have [already] been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose [permit, declare lawful] on earth [h]will have [already] been loosed in heaven.
This truth is what will allow God to “show us” what we need to see, what we need to pray, what we need to do, so he can use the right delivery system to bring what God said into the earth realm and manifest the answers and promises for us and those we are praying for.
The Lord told me “what you see, is what you get.” God wants to take us higher. God want to take us “up here” through the open door in heaven to “show us, speak to us, reveal to us “the things to come” upon the earth for our lives and family he already wrote for us.
He wants to show us the things to come for our church, ministry, calling and to release them with him on earth as it is heaven using the keys of heaven through his thoughts and plans not ours.
He wants us to know what is going to come in our city, state, nation and earth of what he wrote in his books about them. He does not want this day or any day to come upon us unawares.
He knows... the thoughts.... and plans... he has for us.. and he wants us to know them, receive them, walk in them, and to manifest them fully upon the earth.. they will be done, thy kingdoms come on earth as it is heaven.
He told us he wants us to know them in the parable of the sower in Matthew 13: 10-11.
10 Then the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” 11 And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.
Yes, Beloved to “us” IT HAS BEEN GIVING.. TO KNOW... THE SECRETS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AND TO SEE THEM MANIFEST ON THE EARTH.
The Holy Spirit work is burning in us to cause us to “wait upon the Lord.” As we wait in His presence, as we seek his face and heart, we will change and mount up of out earthly realm (human ways, human thought) on the wings of eagles where God will reveal to us his thought and plans and how to speak or do them.
As we obey his instructions we can run now and do them and not grow weary and walk and not faint. Why? Because he has given us the true keys to the kingdom in our hands to use and they will work!
May the Holy Spirit lift us up today into the realm of God’s glory. May the true revelation of Jesus Christ, the spirit of prophecy, fill us today as our testimony. May our Lord reveal to us what we need to see, hear and know concerning our lives and families and those we are praying for.
May he teach us how to use these keys, unlock the doors on earth so the promises and words he said can manifest and lock every door of the enemy that would try to stop and hinder them coming forth.
May God reveal to us the secrets and mysteries of his invisible Kingdom operation of heaven that is more real the visible things we see on this earth. May we be one Jesus with you and you with us so the earth will see your glory and the glory of our Father in us.
Lord open up our eyes to see. Open up our ears to hear. Open up our hearts to receive correct instructions, strategies and plans. May we have the clear and right understanding of what you speak or show us. May we move in only your perfect timing and not early or late. May we know which vessel you desire to use for those purposes if not us.
We trust You Lord. Let a new breath of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus fill us, revive us, refresh us, enable us to walk in the new realms of your glory, your heart, your kingdom on earth as it is heaven. Blessed be your holy name, and I ask this in Jesus Christ name. Amen!
