Wide open vistas…Stretchings into higher vision. More of a God view
Views and Vistas ….
1. A distant view or prospect, especially one seen through an opening, as between rows of buildings or trees.
2. An avenue or other passage affording such a view.
3. An awareness of a range of time, events, or subjects; a broad mental view.
I’ve been talking a lot with Jesus about my views and mindsets in order to better understand some glory revealings. Glory revealings are things you hear from the spirit in the secret place of prayer. A word that comes to open up mindsets and to change hearts and lives.
Over time I’ve come to realize that a good sign of a maturing saint is a ever increasing and more and more drastic change in perspective. Saints are seriously set on walking out of the old and going forward into the new. We are becoming aware progressively of the importance of times and seasons because it’s what Jesus instructed us to do. He said if a man is wise he will seek to discern times and seasons of the spirit, just as men watch for signs of what’s coming in weather patterns. The winds blow in change in the natural world, and Holy Spirit winds blow in changes in the spirit from the heavenlies. We learn to recognize and flow with the wind of the Spirit.
Jesus taught us that the fields are ripe for harvest and he needs laborers to help him to seek and save souls. All along our way we are in need of new vision and new perspectives that can open doors that have been locked previously. We plow through hard ground to break through. There’s a journey of rising up into new measures of the supply of the Spirit so we can unlock new levels of love and understanding. Places of accessing grace for upgrade and new opportunities. Our world changes. We see the world around us more like he sees.
As we begin to know in our knower we learn better how to watch and pray, and love and soundness of character grows abundantly. May it always increase more and more so that when he comes on a watch, looking for faith, he will find in us a faith that pleases him. More and more I’m coming to an understanding that Jesus is passionate to execute the redemptive powers of his cross. I’m encouraged because scripture says that Jesus will not fail nor be discouraged until he has established his kingdom and made the law of his Father honorable.
The winds of the Holy Spirit are blowing and many are taking up their crosses daily as the self agenda tries to rule. We are practicing our dying to self and being resurrected into new life. We are seated together with him and all of the saints in heavenly places. Jesus is Lord and He is building his church in the land and it will be spotless and without blemish. Mere men become meek before God, compelled by love and anointed with power of the Holy Spirit to break yokes of darkness off and lift heavy burdens from the weary shoulders of people who are captive to dark powers.
There will be showers of blessings poured out through the truths of the latter rain promises. I’m excited and I realize that I’ve only begun to scratch the surface of the greatness of it all. The comfort of his presence keeps us as we hold fast to the blood promises and seek to grow in godliness. Father God is writing his laws and instructions on the hearts and minds of his elect. He dresses us up in our armor of light to lead the way for seekers.
“For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all.”
Hebrews 13: 20
Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
I pray not that thou would take them out of the world, but that thou would keep them from the evil.
Thank you for lifting us up on the wings of your love, Father…
