THE SECRET PLACE
Everyone wants to know what the Lord is saying. Believers search the internet for prophetic words, messages, sermons and videos for a word from God. We read about encounters and supernatural experiences that others had with the Holy Spirit and wonder why we don’t have the same. Those people paid a high price for what they have. They cultivated the anointing by spending time with Jesus in the secret place. They died to the things of this world and immersed themselves in His presence.
There was a time when you were stirred up in your faith and you had a hunger for the things of God. Your bible looked like a coloring book with many scriptures highlighted and multicolored. You journaled everything that you heard and read, but now those pages are blank. Some of you have strayed from that place and the time that you spent with the Lord. He is saying to you today that He wants to bring you back into that secret place. He wants you to enter into that place of rest once again.
I’m sensing a strong presence of God as I’m writing this and it’s actually spilling over on to some of you who are reading this. There is impartation when the anointing is tangible. It’s like a cloud but it is rarely seen with our natural eyes. There’s a place that you could go to receive downloads from heaven. There is a place where you could receive manna from heaven. The Lord wants to give you supernatural encounters and speak to you in dreams and visions.
The key is your personal relationship with Jesus. There is a place that you could go that no one knows but you and Him. The more you go the more you will know His heart and your desires will become as His. Encounters are birth in the secret place of intimacy. That is the key that will open the door of revelation. It is the place that the Lord showed John in Revelation 4 when He had an encounter and saw 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 who spend time with Jesus. The Holy Spirit wants to show us things beyond the natural realm. He is inviting us to come up to a higher place with Him. He’s calling us to spend time with Him. Spend time in His Word. The Lord says; Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls. All Your waves and billows have gone over me.
Luke 12:48b (TPT)
For those who have received a greater revelation from their master are required a greater obedience. And those who have been entrusted with great responsibility will be held more responsible to their master.”
1 Corinthians 2:14-15 (TPT)
Someone living on an entirely human level rejects the revelations of God’s Spirit, for they make no sense to him. He can’t understand the revelations of the Spirit because they are only discovered by the illumination of the Spirit. Those who live in the Spirit are able to carefully evaluate all things, and they are subject to the scrutiny of no one but God.
