This morning, I’m listening to a beautiful song that a friend sent me, Whispers by Jason Upton. As I was listening to it, I was taken into a vision of being on a rooftop of a tall building that overlooked on all sides the skyline of New York City. I was spinning around with my arms wide open, the sense I was given was that of the world is my oyster. The phrase the world is your oyster means you are in a position to take the opportunities that life has to offer.
Let’s read that the Way, the Lord quickened it to me ……. you are in a position to TAKE (the violent take it by force, Matthew 11:12) the opportunities that LIFE (I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, John 14:6) has to offer.
What is the Lord saying in this?
The Lord is saying ……..I have given you ALL things that pertains to life and godliness. There is not one area, not one place that My Kingdom does not touch. The earth and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein are Mine says the Lord. Then I was reminded of the movie Lion King, when Mufasa said to Simba, “Look, Simba, everything the light touches is our kingdom”.
The Lord told me the other day, Put on immortality!!! That totally caught me off guard and shocked me when He said it. I said, Yes Lord, I put on immortality in Jesus Name. The Lord is telling us to put on everlasting life, eternal life, where everlasting life eats up everything that is associated with death, the fall, and the grave.
John 1:4 In Him was life [and the power to bestow life], and the life was the Light of men.
I was given another vision, of 2 kids on the playground. The first child was saying, well My Daddy said…… and then the second child said, well my daddy said. The Lord is saying putting on Sonship as you put on the Lord Jesus Christ, as a garment, knowing that our Heavenly Father is backing every word that the Son says. The Lord bequeath to us by inheritance us, His Peace (John 14:27). The Lord’s peace that he bequeathed to us, is the word shalom. Shalom is a very rich word, but simply stated means nothing lacking, wanting, or missing. The peace that the Lord had with the Heavenly Father, was one where He knew the Father would supply all of His needs….. nothing lacking, wanting, or missing, and He gave it to us as a possession by inheritance to have. The enemy, the father of lies, can not tell the truth, because there is no truth in him. The enemy of our soul is limited. Our God is unlimited. We need to renew our minds, casting down vain imaginations, and every high thing that tries to exalt itself against the knowledge of God, and even everything that tries to diminish the truth that we are partakers of His divine nature.
Greater is He that is in you, then he who is of the world.
1 John 4:4 Little children (believers, dear ones), you are of God and you belong to Him and have [already] overcome them [the agents of the antichrist]; because He who is in you is greater than he (Satan) who is in the world [of sinful mankind].
Let everlasting life (the Lord) consume all that comes against you (he who is of the world).
John 1:5 The Light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness did not understand it or overpower it or appropriate it or absorb it [and is unreceptive to it].
Psalm 145:13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
THERE SHALL BE NO END TO THE INCREASE OF HIS GOVERNMENT.
Isaiah 9:6-7 For to us a Child shall be born, to us a Son shall be given; And the government shall be upon His shoulder, And His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. There shall be no end to the increase of His government and of peace, [He shall rule] on the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From that time forward and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.
