SEATED WITH CHRIST IN HEAVENLY PLACES

 
As the body of Christ we are seated with Christ in heavenly places, and if every Christian had a revelation of who we are in Him we would begin walking in unimaginable favor. We don’t realize that we are behaving below our nature and short of our potential. When we realize what Jesus has entrusted to us, we will begin to walk in authority and demonstration of the kingdom of God on this earth. Jesus had commissioned us to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out demons.
 
In the book of Genesis God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." In the book of Luke, Jesus said: Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Too many believers are being misled and don't understand the authority that was given to them. When Jesus walked the earth, everywhere that He went people recognized His authority. Religious leaders were astonished by His teaching. He healed every kind of sickness and disease, leprosy was cleansed and even the dead were raised. Demons would scream out confessing that He was the son of God. We have been created in Gods image and called according to His divine purpose and plan.

Jesus has given us the same authority that He had when He walked the earth. It was prophesied in the book of Acts "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." We are supernatural beings living in natural bodies and the Lord wants to reveal His power in us and through us in a mighty way. He has given us His name. He said: “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. The reason why some of you have been experiencing intense warfare is because you are a threat to the enemy.

The Lord says, I have given you authority in My name and dominion over all the power of the enemy and nothing by any means shall harm you. Just as Paul shook off the venomous viper that tried to take his life, I have also given you the authority to shake off that viper which comes against you to steal, kill and destroy. The enemies attack will not destroy you. His venom will not kill you. The curse causeless shall not come as you speak in My name. The authority that I have given to you can not be understood with your natural mind or received with your intellect, but it is released from the Holy Spirit that abides in you.Take authority over everything that is coming against your life. Take authority over everything that is attacking your families and ministries. Take authority over everything that is coming against your destiny. Take authority over unrighteousness in your cities, states and nations.
 
I have placed a rod in your hand and a sword in your mouth which is My word. I have given you dominion and power over every situation that you encounter. You have the authority to decree and declare a thing and it shall be established for you. As you speak My word, situations in your life will begin to shift. As you use My authority and speak My name, mountains will move. I have given you authority over all sickness and disease. As you lay hands on the sick, they shall recover. Whatsoever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven. Whatsoever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. I have given you the power to overcome every obstacle that comes against you and to tear down strongholds using the mighty weapons that I have provided for you. As you use the authority, dominion and power that I have released to you in my name, you will begin to rule and reign on this earth and My glory will prevail in your life says the Lord. 


Matthew 16:17-19
And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." "And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven"   

Luke 10:19.
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you"  

Ephesians 2:6-7
He raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

A HEAVENLY INVITATION “COME UP HERE”


 
In the book of Revelation Chapter four John speaks about an encounter that he had in which he seen a door standing open in heaven. Then he heard a voice as a trumpet speaking to him, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.” He was immediately in the Spirit and he went on to describe what he saw. There is a door open in the Spirit realm to those of us who are in Covenant with Jesus. The Holy Spirit wants to show us things beyond the natural realm through His word, and He is inviting us to come up to a higher place with Him.
 
The Lord says I have set before you an open door but there are many of you who do not recognize it. This door is not a natural door as you would think, but it is a door that gives you access into the Heavenly realms. This is a door that no man can prevent you from entering, neither will any situation be able to hinder you from walking through because it is already open. This is a door of the mysteries of My word. Many go through this door with great anticipation, but there are others who hesitate to enter because of the fear and distrust in their hearts. As you walk through this open door you will come into new experiences and gain access to divine revelation. As you walk through this door, your atmosphere will shift. As you walk though this door, you will experience My presence and unlimited power.

Some of you are saying in your heart that you have heard this before but you have not experienced it in your personal lives, but as you remain steadfast in My word, your eyes will be unveiled and your ears will be unplugged. As you continue in prayer and intercession, the doors of opposition will be closed and even the most difficult circumstances will be turned around for My glory. Do not become anxious or doubtful because what I have promised will certainly come to pass as you continue to seek me in this secret place.
 
Although there are hostile forces of opposition, I have given you authority over the powers of darkness. I will visit those who's hearts are submitted to Me.The carnal minded could not enter into this place, but you have been chosen by divine invitation through My Covenant. Close the doors to all hindrances that would keep you from My promises. Do not be afraid to walk through this open door but enter in with total surrender and submission. You will surely experience things that you have not known before as you accept this invitation to "Come up here" says the Lord.


2 Corinthians 4: 18
While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Ephesians 1:16-18
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints. 
 
Revelation 4: 1 - 2
After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, "Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this. "Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.

DEAD PROMISES RESTORED TO LIFE


There is a phenomenal story in the book of 2 Kings Chapter 4: 8- 36 of the prophet Elisha who went into a town called Shunem (Shunem means double resting place). There was a prominent woman there who prepared a meal for him and built a small upper room for him to stay each time he came to town. The room had a bed, a table, a chair and a lamp stand. She prepared this place for him because she perceived the anointing on his life.

Elisha wanted to pay her back for her kindness so he told his servant Gehazi to ask her what he could do for her. He even asked her if she wanted him to speak on her behalf to the king or the commander of the army. Gehazi told Elisha that her husband was old and that she didn’t have a son. Elisha had the anointing and authority to prophesy into her life that she would have a son in one year. When he first prophesied this to her she didn’t believe it. One year later she conceived and bore a son just as Elisha said.

After a few years her promised son died. She took him up to Elishas room and laid him on his bed. When her husband questioned her what was wrong she replied “all is well”. She then saddled her donkey and went to Mt. Carmel to look for Elisha. As she arrived in Mt.Carmel Elisha saw her afar off and sent his servant Gehazi to ask her if all was well with her husband and her child. She replied “all is well” because she believed the promise of God. When she told Elisha that the boy was dead, he sent Gehazi immediately back to the boy to lay his staff on his face. Then she said something familiar to Elisha that he always said to his mentor Elijah. She said: “As the Lord lives, and as you live I will not leave you.”

Gehazi went ahead and did as he was told but returned to tell Elisha that the boy did not wake up. Elisha then went into the house himself, up to the room and shut the door. The boy was dead. He put his eyes to his eyes, mouth to his mouth, hands to his hands and stretched himself out on him. The boys body became warm. Elisha then walked back and forth and then stretched out on the boy a second time. The boy sneezed seven times and opened his eyes as life returned to his body. Elisha told the women to go into the room and pick up her son. God had resurrected the Shunamite woman's son. A similar miracle occurred in the same manner when his mentor Elijah raised a boy back to life. (1 Kings 17:19 - 24)

There are promises that the Lord has made to you that have died. Some of you have ministries that were once thriving but are now non existent. Some of you used to heal the sick but you feel as if the glory has left you. The Lord wants to resurrect the gifts and callings that have perished. He is about to breathe into those situations that are impossible in the natural. Just as Elisha brought the Shunammite woman's dead son back to life as he laid on the boy mouth to mouth, eye to eye, hand to hand, the boy was restored back to life. He is going to resuscitate you with his breath and revive those dead areas in your life. He is breathing life into believers in this season of great exploits. Don’t look at things in the natural because the Lord is about to commission you in what he has called you to do. As you rise up and decree and declare that "all is well" Jesus will honor your faith and raise that which is dead back to life.
 
2 Kings 4: 32 - 35
When Elisha came into the house, there was the child, lying dead on his bed. He went in therefore, shut the door behind the two of them, and prayed to the Lord. And he went up and lay on the child, and put his mouth on his mouth, his eyes on his eyes and his hands on his hands; and he stretched himself out on the child, and the flesh of the child became warm. He returned and walked back and forth in the house, and again went up and stretched himself out on him; then the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes.

Job 33:4
The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

THE RADIANT BRIDE ARISING


The Holy Spirit put it on my heart to share this word that I had three years ago. The Lord showed me three different types of brides. The first bride was the radiant bride, the second bride was the runaway bride and the third bride was the sleeping bride. The radiant bride was as a wise virgin mentioned in Matthew chapter 25:4 who kept her lamp filled with fresh oil until her bridegroom came. The runaway bride was the bride who got "cold feet", became fearful and ran away from the call of God on her life. The sleeping bride was the bride who grew tired of waiting on her bridegroom and fell asleep before her bridegroom arrived.

The Lord says of His radiant bride, My bride has arrived. She is radiant, and she is arrayed in My glory. She is pure and virtuous and set apart from the world. She will not allow herself to be defiled as she walks in holiness with garments of white without spot or wrinkle. I have placed My signet ring upon her finger and clothe her in My anointing. She is a carrier of My presence and she releases My glory wherever she goes. The atmosphere changes when she walks into a room. Darkness instantly flees as My glorious light illuminates from her being. Her relationship with Me is secure, and she would never consider another love. She knows the depth of My love for her and therefore she walks in confidence, trust and perfect peace. She is adorned with robes of righteousness because she is a woman of honor and integrity. She enters My chambers daily with great expectation because she has won My heart. I continually teach her My ways because she has found favor in My sight. She is unique and she has My approval because she knows what is rightfully hers. She is not conformed to this world, because her mind is transformed. She knows that she is not perfect, but her desire is to please Me. She carries fresh oil at all times and her lamp never goes out.

She is determined and victorious and never grows weary in well doing. She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She is compassionate and reaches out to help the poor. She looks much deeper within a person rather than judge them by their outward appearance. She is not prejudice and will never disrespect someone because of their nationality or race. She treats both the same the rich and the poor but resists the proud and the arrogant. She loves the sinner but hates their sin. Her frequency in the fiery furnace has made her stronger each time, and she now reaches out to rescue those who are entrapped. She will go out of her way for the one who is lost, and will comfort those who are considered outcasts. She will never turn away those who are rejected and scorned but will always befriend them into her life. I have raised her to beauty from ashes, so that she could relate to those who are afflicted and bring joy to those who mourn
.
Don't let her gentleness fool you because she is strong and very courageous. Don't let her appearance fool you because she is also a warrior. She is tenacious in warfare and won't back down when the enemy confronts her. The evil one has nothing in her because she knows the authority that she has in My name. Nations take heed to her words because she has My consent to speak as she trumpets My voice with clarity and accuracy. The kingdom of darkness trembles at the words of her mouth because they are attuned with My voice. Her words are not compromised, and she is never in competition or rivalry. She understands My Covenant, therefore she speaks with boldness. She is not affected by bad reports and is not moved by what she hears. She pays no attention to a suffered wrong and she is not easily offended because she has a heart of forgiveness. She is a watchman on the wall, ready to intercede for the needs that come her way. She knows that I hear every request as she comes boldly before My throne of grace.

You ask, Who is this bride? Who qualifies for such an honor? My son, My daughter, you are My bride. Come My beloved, My body, My bride. I have redeemed you and I have called you by name. The gender of My bride is not limited to the female, but to the male also. My bride is not limited to those who are called to the five fold ministry but My bride are those who are least among you in My kingdom. My bride is those who are in Covenant with Me. You have been called, chosen and set apart for this time and season. It is with you that I will show Myself strong. It is with you that I will do great exploits. You will walk in a manner worthy of My glory. Enter into the place that I have perfected for you My bride. Enter into this season with great expectation my lover, my bride, says the Lord.

Proverbs 31:25-26 She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

2 Corinthians 11:2 For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

Revelation 21:2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

The Lord says to the runaway Bride, why are you running, my lover, my bride? The wedding feast has been prepared. I am calling you back to your rightful position. Do not fear, and do not be offended. I will heal your broken heart and bind up your wounds. I will forgive all your iniquities, heal all your diseases, and redeem your life from destruction. Allow Me to crown you with loving kindness and tender mercies once again. I will satisfy your mouth with good things, and renew your youth like the eagle's. I am calling you back to a deep intimate relationship with Me. Make yourself ready. I am married to the backslider and I long for your love says the Lord.

Psalms 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Jeremiah 3:14 -15 "Return, O backsliding children," says the LORD; "for I am married to you. I will take you, one from a city and two from a family, and I will bring you to Zion. And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.

Then the Lord showed me an analogy of "Sleeping Beauty" which represented the "Sleeping Bride". The Lord says, "I Am calling my Covenant bride to awaken. I am calling My bride to wake up from her sleep and enter into the place that I have prepared for her in this time and this season. My bride you have been asleep for too long. It is time to arise and rekindle the flame. It is time to take your stand in My Kingdom and walk in all that I have called you to do. It is time to take ground from what the enemy has stolen from you. Many of you have been crying out for revival. You have cried out for My favor and to be used by Me, but you have gone into a slumber. As you arise and submit to My plans and purposes for your life, I will release the mantle, the calling and the gifts that I have for you. I will take you to new levels that you have not yet known.

I will give you the desires of your heart but you must awaken my bride. Awaken to My plans and purposes that I have for you. Shake off your slumber and come out of your spiritual lethargy. You ask Me to take you to the next level, but you are hindering yourself as you are lagging behind. I will do wonders among you as you come before Me in total submission.. Come before Me with clean hands and a pure heart. This is My requirement to enter in to the Holy of Holies. This is My requirement to bring you into new realms of My glory. You will see the miracles, signs and wonders that you've longed for. Come before Me in prayer and fasting. As you seek My face I will give you clarity in the way you should go. I am about to release My glory in abundance, and bring a transformation to your life as you submit it all to Me. So arise My bride, awaken to your destiny and let Me bring you into My chambers, says the Lord."

Romans 13:11 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep, for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.

Ephesians 5:14 For this reason it says, "Awake sleeper and rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you".

OUR MOUTHS WERE FILLED WITH LAUGHTER,
OUR TONGUES WITH SONGS OF JOY

 
I want to share a word that I had a couple of years ago. With all the warfare and the trying times that we are living in, many believers have lost the joy that they once had. They are burdened down with worries, sickness and fatigue. The Holy Spirit is showing me that He is going to restore joy and release laughter to His people. There is a great time of rejoicing coming to those who have been going through a difficult season. We have all been held captive to something in our lives, and the enemy is trying to enslave people once again through sickness, financial problems, family issues, fears and addictions. Whatever difficulty you are going through Jesus wants to release you and restore the joy back into your life. 

The book of Psalms chapter 126 speaks about how the Israelites rejoiced after their return from the exile and the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion. In the days of Nehemiah, when they came back from Persia at the decree of Ezra, they were rejoicing when they realized that they were able to go back and rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. They were so filled with joy that they described it as a dream. The Lord wants to rebuild the things in your life that have been devoured by adversity.  

The Lord says, I am rebuilding those areas of your life that have been destroyed in the battle. I will restore those things that have been lost or stolen and I will remove the heavy burdens that have weighed you down. Shackles are being broken and captives are being released. The strongholds that have held you prisoner are coming off. I am releasing the prisoners of war, and returning them home once again. I am healing the brokenhearted and setting the captives free. 

Allow me to release you from addictions that you are not able to overcome on your own, lifestyles that you are not able to change, and renew your old mindsets and negative ways of thinking. Allow me to be Lord over every area of your life. Allow me to free you from the bondage that is keeping you from walking in freedom. I will break the restraints that are holding you back from all that I have provided for you. Take the limits off me in what I am able to do. Although you are in a difficult season, victory shall be yours and joy and laughter shall return to you. As you have sown in tears, you shall reap in joy. You will go out with joy and be sent forth with peace. This is the Covenant promises that I have made with you; says the Lord. 

Psalms 126:1-6 
When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing . Then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad. Bring back our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the South. Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Jeremiah 29:14 
I will be found by you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile." 
 
Acts 2:28
You have made known to me the paths of life; You will fill me with joy in your presence.




You were born to be amazing.” 
― Kris Vallotton
