Saying - A 3 - fold Call To Action
1. “You have circled this mountain long enough. Now turn north,” Deuteronomy 2:3. In the Bible ‘north’, when it is a symbol, refers to the ‘mystery of God’.(see Strong’s Concordance #6828 - the word ‘north’ in Hebrew means: hidden, i.e. dark, unknown).
“For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also on the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north.” Isaiah 4:13. Here Lucifer wanted to control it all, especially the secret things of God!.
“Then he brought me through the entry, which was at the side of the gate, into the holy chambers for the priests, which looked toward the north...” Ezekiel 46:19 In this vision, that which was holy pointed toward the hidden thing of God.
“The chariot with the black horses goes toward the north country, the white ones go after them...” Zechariah 6:6 This refers to the forces dark (the black horses) going after the hidden things of God, and the ‘white horse’ ministry of Jesus Christ in pursuit to conquer with Love (compare ‘white horse’ in Revelation).
“Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.” 1 Corinthians 3:21 - 4:2.
I am not come to earth, says the LORD, to build up yet another new religion. I am come to build up you, so that the foundations to carry on the creative works of the Father can be quickened in my people on earth, in the Kingdomship that he so longs to share with you in the future. For it is written, “And I have put my words in your mouth, and I have covered you in the shadow of my hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth...” Isaiah 51:16.
I call you to levels of deeper understanding. TURN NORTH. There is much more for you to learn from the Scriptures through the HOLY SPIRIT, who“...searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:10. Do not give up. Do not say to yourself that you will never understand more than you do or that you don’t have enough education. What you need you already have: the ability to RECEIVE through the Holy Spirit all that IS of your high calling in Christ Jesus.
Yes, while yet seeing through a glass darkly, learning to see like through the crystal clear sea of heaven is meant for your maturing process while here on earth!
“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” (1Corinthians 13:11). This has to do with our time on earth. Maturing cannot take place in the timelessness of perfection in heaven.
2. “When you shall besiege a city a long time, in making war against it to take it, you shall not destroy the trees thereof by forcing an ax against them: for you may eat of them, and you shall not cut them down (for the tree of the field is man's life) to employ them in the siege: Only the trees which you know that they be not trees for meat, you shall destroy and cut them down; and you shall build BULWARKS against the city that makes war with you, until it be subdued.” Deuteronomy 20:19-20
The war has gone on for a long, long time, and so it still will for us. It is a mental war of minds in the spiritual realm. (“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”) Ephesians 6:12.
In a war that is this long, we need to BUILD BULWARKS. In a long war that is the only way to subdue the enemy. So build bulwarks of THOUGHTS in your mind worlds, to be spoken through conscious intent of your heart, to the seen world and the unseen world: against the strong holds of Satan that are still there, until they are subdued and finally conquered forever and ever.
We are all involved in the long term process of resurrection..... Having died in Christ, we are being made alive in Christ, by going with Him, as the Father wills, to the places of the ‘north’ ,the deep things of God... Living in Christ, we daily put on Christ, because our hearts want to be wherever He, this person of Love, is! As Scripture says,“Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man (person), to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:” Ephesians 4:13.
The enemy, of course does not want this. The father of lies continuously proposes to us negative parallels or substitutes to whatever Jesus Christ offers us. These will destroy us! When Jesus came down from the Father’s House to the earth world, He immediately claimed every living spirit person that had lived on it, that was living on it, and that in the future would ever live on it. The battle is over but the war goes on, until one day we will
join Him in the Father’s House: if we persist by the Spirit bravely.
Slowly our hearts are renewed with His kind of Loving deepness. Then begins to develop the spiritual words ( like bulwarks of thoughts in our minds ) that become too much for the walls of the enemy city to withstand. Praise be the God of gods!*
*( for ‘God of gods’ compare Deuteronomy 10:17, Joshua 22:22, Psalms 50:1, Psalms136:2, Daniel 2:47, Daniel 11:36, and John 10:35
3. “Then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places: And you shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it.” Numbers 33:52-53
After we succeed by the God of Heaven, to fell the walls of an enemy stronghold in our minds, there is very important work yet to do! There are ‘old pictures, molten images and high places’ in the vastness of our imaginations that have to be destroyed. These belong to the lies, old lines of defence, and dead doctrines we’ve been told to believe an hold dearly by the continuous mental wand waves of the Devil. These renderings of concepts and ideologies are craftily disguised as good and honourable. They can be housed, as similitudes of pictures, or images within walled cities, in any person’s mind, even our own, or that of our loved one(s). But they have nothing to do with taking on the Lord Jesus Christ, His Resurrection and His Life into our bodies!
Here is where, in this work, the I (me), also has to become the we (us). Here is where we open our mental fields and help each other, in trust, to plow over our problems and cherished lies, and plant something in the Spirit, so good and thick on top of those problems and lies, that they will never break out again!
Here is where we really overcome and stop tracking mud into the house. Here is where we pour out the trash emotions and stop standing on the burial mounts of the past. Here is where we quit thinking about the worst things that might happen lest the things we fear come upon us.
Here is where the tracks of our lives become strong footprints on roadways where many lost souls find home! May we not be afraid to go where no one has ever gone before!
