How Are You Known In Heaven?
How are you known in heaven? God knows who you are and who you are becoming. He has a path laid out for us that He has determined in His own heart. He wants you to know, you are known in heaven. When you know how you are known in heaven, then you get to know how to walk on the earth in relationship with God & others. Ephesians 1: 3-6 Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm has already been lavished upon us as a love gift from our wonderful heavenly Father, the Father of our Lord Jesus – all because He sees us wrapped into Christ. This is why we celebrate Him with all our hearts! And He chose us to be His very own, joining us to Himself even before He laid the foundation of the universe! Because of His great love, He ordained us, so that we would be seen as holy in His eyes with an unstained innocence.
For it was always in His perfect plan to adopt us as His delightful children, through our union with Jesus the Anointed One, so that His tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify His grace - for the same love He has for His Beloved One, Jesus, He has for us. And this unfolding plan brings Him great pleasure! Ephesians 1:9-11 And through the revelation of the Anointed One, He unveiled His secret desires to us – the hidden mystery of His long-range plan, which He was delighted to implement from the very beginning of time. And because of God's unfailing purpose, this detailed plan will reign supreme through every period of time until the fulfillment of all the ages finally reaches its every period of time until the fulfillment of all the ages finally reaches its climax – when God makes all things new in all of heaven and earth through Jesus Christ.
It is comforting to know how you - will walk. He has already known this about you. When you fall away from Him – He will always be there. When you stray – He is with you. Jesus picks you up and carries you – when you can't stand on your own. His word says: I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. He has plans for us. God sends us, Angelic Prophecy: This is one about John the Baptist. Luke 1: 5-11 During the reign of King Herod the Great over Judea, there was a Jewish pries named Zechariah who served in the temple as part of the priestly order of Abijah. His wife, Elizabeth, was also from a family of priest, being a direct descendant of Aaron. They were both loves of God, living virtuously and following the commandments of the Lord fully. But they were childless since Elizabeth was barren, and now they both were quite old. (Zechariah means – God has remembered, Elizabeth means – oath or covenant of God).
One day, while Zechariah's priestly order was on duty and he was serving as priest, it happened by the casting of lots (according to the custom of the priesthood) that the honor fell upon Zechariah to enter into the Holy Place and burn incense before the Lord. (for me there is something about being in our sacred place which is a holy place that He touches and speaks to us)
A large crowd of worshipers had gathered to pray outside the temple at the hour when incense was being offered. All at once an angel (Gabriel) of the Lord appeared to him, standing just to the right of the altar of incense. Zechariah was startled and overwhelmed with fear. But the angel reassured him saying, “Don't be afraid, Zechariah! (the angel called him by his name) God is showing grace to you. For I have come to tell you that your prayer for a child has been answered. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son and you are to name him John. (John means: God's grace) His birth will bring much joy and gladness. Many will rejoice because of him. He will be one of the great ones in the sight of God. He will drink no wine or strong drink, but he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even while still in his mother's womb. And he will persuade many in Israel to convert and turn back to the Lord their God. He will go before the Lord as a forerunner, with the same power and anointing as Elijah the prophet. He will be instrumental in turning the hearts of the fathers in tenderness back to their children and the hearts of the disobedient back to the wisdom of their righteous fathers. And he will prepare a united people who are ready for the Lord's appearing.”
This was a prophecy from God telling John's parents what he would be and become. This is how he was known in heaven. So the pathway you are on has been known by God for a long time. When God plans something – He resources what He plans. (We have resources from God to fulfill His plans for us). He says, “I know who you are going to be.”
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations. These are our inheritance words given to us by God. We all have a scripture that jumps out at us and grabs us. Or we have had prophetic scripture spoken over us. Our inheritance words are based up on His promises. Genesis 1:26 Let us make man in our image – primary purpose of scripture is that we would know who we are in His sight. When, you know how God sees you – you know you have favor in that context.
When He gives you a word in scripture – it's yours and everything in it belongs to you and you have favor in that context. This is where we get to dig deeply into the scriptures spoken over our lives. That we would understand our identity in Him. Our purpose is to glorify our Creator.
He comes to you as an individual and says “this is what I like about you,” “this is your inheritance in this context.”
This is a place where you stand. This is a place where you will blossom. You know that everything in that scripture belongs to you. You must own it. This is an inheritance word. John the Baptist had one. Jesus had one. We have one. It is called the Prophecy of Scripture. His word (the bible) is a book of encounters & experiences. Story of mankind's journey with God. Your scripture tells you: How to know Him. How to walk with Him. How to understand His ways. Tells about your favor. When you read your scripture outloud, He will think about you, ponder on you. Yes this is My son. Yes this is My daughter. This is how I planned them to be. This is how I see them. Graham Cook (Inheritance) What I learn from others that touch me deeply, I pass on that they may be touched. I love Graham Cook's teachings as they are simple and profound to me. I have added some of my thoughts and inspirations with this teachings. My Scripture: Jeremiah 31: 3-6 given to me and Ron on 7-7-1998 The Lord has appeared of old to me saying: Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you. Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel. You shall again be adorned with your tambourines (toph-drum), and shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice. You shall yet plant vines on the mountains of Samaria; The planters shall plant and eat them as ordinary food. For the shall be a day when the watchmen will cry on Mount Ephraim, “Arise and let us go up to Zion, to the Lord our God.
Prophecy: Ron & I will have a ministry that people will not understand but will be in awe. People will be touched, we will also help people in their marriages – healing for God. This was my response: Sometimes my soul cries out for other lands. Sometime I just wan a chance for my spirit to dance. In the dance He has healed me, set me free, mended my broken heart. Wiped my tears, embraced me. He has danced with me. How could I not accept His call to dance. What He has asked me to do – Go & tell them I love them as I have loved you. I did not know love until I could look Jesus in the face without shame, until I let Him embrace me, until Jesus so graciously gave love to me without anything in return. “There is nothing you can do to make Him love you less, there is nothing you can do to make Him love you more. He loves you, He loves you, He loves you.” Graham Cook
What I see in the body of Christ, is people do not know who they are in Christ. They don't know their authority. They don't know how God sees them. What is sad to me is some really don't know how to sit at His feet and gaze into His eyes. How to be intimate with Him. How to honor Him, for He is Holy.
Some are so busy they forget He is there for them. Especially in ministry. If our ministry is so busy that we are not spending time in our sacred place with Him, we will never know the plans He has for us, or the battle plans for our next battle. We want battles that make a difference for His Kingdom. Jesus died on the cross so we could come and have a relationship with His Father, with Him, and with the Holy Spirit. Elohim... It is very clear that Yahweh wants to spend time with us, He wants to gaze upon us, look into our eyes, tell us how much He loves us. Tell us, He is proud of us. He just wants to be with us. We can be with Him and not even say a word. (husband & wife, or child and parent) His presence reaches the depths of us, that we have no word to explain this awesome experience. God wants to always give us more, we should be having encounters with Him that brings fullness & abundance. If we are not filled up with Him, we can not help others, let alone win battles.
Are your best battles ahead of you or behind you? They should be ahead of you. We want battles that are meaningful. That are for us to take some ground. We need to be gearing up for meaningful battles. We need to ask God for a better quality of fight. To fight for something. Do you know what you are fighting for or do you just go in swinging and getting nowhere? If you are to tired and weary get refreshed before the next battle comes. Do not go into battle being tired and weary, you will get attacked and your team will get attacked. This is why it is so vital to get into your sacred place and receive from God all that He has for you. (satan can not touch you there). When we get to heaven God will not be judging us for sin (Jesus already paid for this). We will be judge for - did you receive all that I had for you? Did you become what I most wanted you to become? I had all of this to give you, but you only let me give you this (small amount). You prayed for your needs for 40 years (desert) when I wanted you to pray for your inheritance.(taking your land) You prayed as a widow when I wanted you to pray as a bride. You came praying as a baby when I wanted you to come and pray as a warrior (son & daughter). When we set in the sacred place, God teaches us how to pray His Heart. Ask, what is on Your Heart Abba today? What is it You want me to pray? What is meaningful to You? We are the sons and daughters of the Most High God – El Elyon, who wants a relationship with us, otherwise what Yeshua did on the cross was in vain. He died for us so we could have more of Yawheh. Be with Him in the Sacred Place..... What we learn in the Sacred Place we must share with others (Our Story) so they can come and enjoy His Sacred Place. Isaiah 61: to uproot, to rebuild, to set the captives free.
