“…to you it has been given to come progressively to know to recognize and understand more strongly and clearly the mysteries and secrets of the kingdom of God…” [Luke 8:10 AMP]
Being ‘progressive’ in the world may have a negative connotation but not in the Kingdom of God! The ‘church’ is stymied by the religious spirit and structures that will not allow a power greater than itself. A power that will move individuals progressively into the great vortex opened to them by the rending of the veil. [Matthew 28:1-3] Through the very flesh and blood of Jesus Christ saints have moved into this vortex—a vortex involving a whirlwind drawing into its epicenter all that surrounds it and those that will yield to its reality! This is a heart that has spent the wellsprings of life seeking and searching to know God.
Caught up in this vortex the saint of God finds his footing on the courtroom of heaven—“Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in My ways and keep My charge, then also you shall rule My house and have charge of My courts, and I will give you access to My presence and places to walk among these who stand here.” [Zechariah 3:7] The ‘progressives’ join the great throng who worship in spirit and in truth and in this revelation they walk in the Light as He is in the Light—they have trained themselves by use of the Word of God to discern good from evil. [Hebrews 5:14] The one with glorious vision is able to say and know they have arrived—they have progressed in their understanding in knowing they have “…come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem…” [Hebrews 12:22] Living in the world and not of it means I am living somewhere else, a spiritual dimension more real than the temporary and “No one born [begotten] of God [deliberately knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, for God’s nature abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him]: and he cannot practice sinning because he is born [begotten] of God” [1 John 3:9 AMP]
We have ‘progressed’ to be among those who hear the Judge read the verdicts, reports, readings from the books of heaven [Daniel 7:9-11]—the destiny of individuals, families, tribes, regions and nations. We are among those who receive assignments that prophecy into the earth the Will of God as the Kingdom of God extends its borders. The Light of this Kingdom blinds those behind the walls of religion for they are those, “…who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked and suffocated with the anxieties and cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not ripen [come to maturity and perfection].” [Mark 8:14 AMP] These are those who do not progress!
The entrance into this Kingdom cannot be known unless there is a new birth, both of water and of the Spirit—eyes progressively open and slowly glimpse, as if through a portal [open heaven], the sights and sounds of heaven. This is the experience of one who receives a ‘word’ from the Lord, a ‘picture’ while in God’s presence, a dream or vision in the night seasons. Even as Jacob [Genesis 28] who dreamed and in his dream saw the activities of heaven as the angels ascended and descended the ladder—later Jacob would progress and enter into fullness by risking his life to ‘know God’. [Genesis 32] Peter, James and John were lifted into a portal to taste the atmosphere of heaven and witness Jesus Christ hearing the verdicts spoken concerning His destiny.
There are three stages to living in this ‘glorious vision’ – to be born again is to rise in the resurrection power—to walk in the Spirit of God is to rise in the ascension power—to hear, speak and act upon His Word is to be placed into the very court room of heaven, to walk among those already dwelling there and experience the dominion power flowing from the seat of God’s government—Mount Zion the heavenly Jerusalem!
