KNOWING THE REALMS, Part 3

“Every DOOR Has A KEY!”

 
 
 
 
 
       Hello Beloved of God!  Before we go into this Month’s Teaching, at the time of writing to you the Storm that has a name of “Harvey” is taking place.  The tremendous sights we are seeing on TV and the stories that are being told of the people that this storm has affected are very hard to hear.  We here at the Ministry are praying over the States of Texas and Louisiana and their people as we know you are too.  We are also giving to a Ministry that is located right in the Houston, Texas area as they are reaching out on the front lines to the people there.  Let us all as The Body of Christ pray and assist as The Lord directs.  Upon looking what the meaning of the name “Harvey” means it is said that it has the meaning of battle, strong, worthy and ardent.  Indeed, this attack of the enemy has been just that . . . . a strong battle.  Yet, our God is stronger and He is and will do great things to help the people!  He Is A Good God!  Hallelujah!  The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].” John 10:10 (AMPC)
 
       For the Last two Months we have been talking about A PLACE.  And this is not just any PLACE.  It’s a PLACE that is UNSEEN.  There is so much that is within July and August’s Teaching Letters that there is no way to cover all that is within them.  So, I ask that if you did not receive these Teachings, please contact the Ministry and we would gladly send those to you for Free.  Or, you can read at any time the Teachings that are sent out, by choosing which Month you wish to read from our listing here on the Webpage.  Yet, to build upon the foundation that we are building upon, I will recap just a few things.  
 

Building A Foundation

 
 
 

       Many of us have heard several times about Faith.  Most of the time in Churches and in Christian circles when one is talking about Faith, it is meant What Faith are you?  Meaning, where do you go to Church or what Denomination of Church do you attend, etc.  Yet, Faith is so, so much more!  It is a Kingdom LAW that The Church is supposed to be operating in and truly flourishing in!  Yet again, if you are not taught HOW TO operate in it, you are missing a Huge Part of how The Kingdom works and how The King needs us to function while here on Earth!

       Faith is made of things and has an existence.  Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)  “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”  Faith is made out of what we believe and what we speak, from what we believe.  You and I must BELIEVE FIRST and then put action to what we believe, by speaking it out loud.  And when you believe and then speak from what you believe, YOU form A SUBSTANCE.  You form an EVIDENCE, a matter, a confirmation, a stuff, a proof.  When a Believer speaks what they believe in The Word and keeps believing and doesn't doubt, believes they received when they prayed and keeps standing, he or she has a LEGAL RIGHT to possess what they are exercising their Faith for!  YOU CREATE A SUBSTANCE or an EVIDENCE of THINGS HOPED FOR and that you are CERTAIN OF!
 
       There is a PLACE that this SUBSTANCE that you are creating by faith IS AT!  The Living Bible Translation tells us in Hebrews 11:1, “It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.”  So, WHERE IS that which we hope for AT?  This SUBSTANCE that you are forming by Faith is being stored and kept SOMEWHERE.  It's in a location, a place, a Realm or a Site . . . yet, it's in a Place THAT IS UNSEEN.  We see The Bible telling us about this UNSEEN Realm in Ephesians 6:11-12,
 
 

“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”  Ephesians 6:11-12 (NLT)

 


 
       And, in between the SEEN Realm (which is where we can see, touch, smell, taste and feel everything) and the UNSEEN Realm is a DOORAnd this DOOR opens up one Realm to the other.  And the Bible tells us that WE ARE IN CONTROL OF THE DOOR between the SEEN and UNSEEN Realm,
 

“Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.” Psalm 141:3 (NIV)

 

       Each time you speak, your "DOOR" is opening up from ONE REALM TO ANOTHER REALM and affecting what is going on in BOTH REALMS!  This Truth makes so many of The Scriptures come to Life!  Bless the Lord, you His angels, You mighty ones who do His commandments, Obeying the voice of His word!” Psalm 103:20 (AMP)  Our Angels live in the UNSEEN Realm and they are WAITING ON YOU AND I to speak The Word of God so that they can do it for us!  “Hebrews 11:1 (NIV) “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”  What we are believing by Faith for IS IN THE UNSEEN REALM!  That is why you can’t see it yet!  You’ve got to use your Faith and be sure of it and not let go of your Faith that it WILL manifest.  You are in the SEEN Realm . . . and your “Stuff” is in the UNSEEN Realm, Beloved!
 
 
 
 
 
        “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words." Proverbs 18:21 (AMP)  When we release our “DOORS” which are our mouths, we are SENDING, RECEIVING, FORMING, REBUKING, CHANGING, STARTING and STOPPING THINGS IN BOTH REALMS!  YOU are controlling these Realms!  YOU ARE CARRYING THE DOOR TO EACH OF THEM!  YOU are controlling when the DOOR opens and what comes out of the DOOR and what does not, Church!
 

YOUR WORDS ARE SPIRIT

 “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.” John 6:63 (NIV)
 
 
       Jesus was speaking in John 6:63 and He was wanting His Disciples then and His Disciples now to know that when He spoke The Word (which He only spoke what He heard His and our Father say – John 12:49) His Words were Spirit and life.  So, His Words were SPIRIT.  Now, when we give our lives to Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit comes to live inside of us.  And The Holy Spirit is The Lord too.  So, how does Jesus and The Holy Spirit speak in the Earth today?  Through His People, His Body, The Believers who are The Church.
 
       We are a spirit, we live in a body and we have a soul.  So, the words we speak are spirit also!  When we speak the things of God and His Word and Life, we are operating like Jesus would have us to.  “Life” words produce Life.  When we are speaking the opposite of what The Word says and speaking negative and “death” words then guess what those words are producing . . . death.  Life and Death are both Spirits!  John 6:63 says that the Words that Jesus spoke were Spirit and Life.  When you and I speak, there are just two choices – Life or Death.  Jesus CHOSE to speak ONLY LIFE.  He CHOSE TO SPEAK what The Father told Him to.  We are also the sons and daughters of Father God.  We also CHOOSE WHETHER TO SPEAK LIFE or DEATH.  
 
 
 

 

Remember, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it and indulge it will eat its fruit and bear the consequences of their words." Proverbs 18:21 (AMP)  Death is a Spirit and Life is a Spirit. You and I are a Spirit that is speaking!  Whatever we are speaking, we are creating.  And what comes out our DOOR of our mouths is spiritually affecting the Realm of the Seen and the Realm of the Unseen.  Again, it must be stated,

 

When we release our “DOORS” which are our mouths, we are SENDING, RECEIVING, FORMING, REBUKING, CHANGING, STARTING and STOPPING THINGS IN BOTH REALMS!  YOU ARE CARRYING THE DOOR TO EACH OF THEM!  YOU are controlling when the DOORS open and what comes out of the DOOR and what does not, Church!
 
 

If There’s A DOOR,

     There Must Be A KEY!
 
 
 
 
 
     
       Now that we have established by The Word of God that our mouths (“lips”) are the DOORS that are between the Realm of the Seen and the Realm of the Unseen, there must be a KEY.  Isn’t there always a KEY to a DOOR?  Of course there is!  And these KEYS RELEASE THE KINGDOM OF GOD!  And WHO has these KEYS?  YOU AND I DO!   Let’s look at some Truth in Matthew 16:19.  
 

Matthew 16:19

“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; the things you don’t allow on earth will be the things that God does not allow, and the things you allow on earth will be the things that God allows.” (NCV – New Century Version)
 
 “and I will give to thee the keys of the reign of the heavens, and whatever thou mayest bind upon the earth shall be having been bound in the heavens, and whatever thou mayest loose upon the earth shall be having been loosed in the heavens.” (Young’s Literal Translation)
 
  

       First, you see in a few Translations of Matthew 16:19 that there are heavens.  That is plural.  So, we are NOT talking about the Heaven that Jesus and Father are in now.  The heavens are referring to the Realms that we have been going over for Months.  Recall what Ephesians 6:12 tells us, “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.”   “Heavenly places” here is referring to Places other than the one “Heaven” that Father God is at.  And Ephesians 6 is specifically referring to one of the heavens that is called, “the unseen realm.”

   
 
 
       Second, we also see that WE are given the KEYS.  And in some Translations we see that we are given, “the keys of the reign of the heavens.”  That means Beloved that we are in charge!  Truly, this is clearly told to us in Matthew 16:19 for it goes on to reveal that, “the things you don’t allow will be the things that God does not allow, and the things you allow on earth will be the things that God allows.”  THAT’S HUGE!  WE are determining how things are running!  The literal operation and administration of “the reign of the heavens” is happening THROUGH US!  We are the ones managing what is being allowed and not allowed in these “heavens” Realms!  The Lord Jesus has left us with His Authority while here on Earth!  The Word stresses that in Matthew 16:19, “The things you allow on earth will be the things that God allows.”  In the Young’s Literal Translation and in many others it translates to us that what we “bind upon the earth shall be . . . bound in the heavens” and whatever we “loose upon the earth shall be . . . loosed in the heavens.”
 
       There’s one very important word that we want to put our focus on and it is “whatever.”  “Whatever” is very huge!  That means “whatsoever,” “anything,” “no matter what.”  Get the picture?  Anything we are binding on Earth, is bound.  No matter what we loose on Earth, is loose.  And how do you think that we are literally binding things and loosing things in the Earth and in the heavens?  By what we are allowing to come out of the DOORS of our mouths or lips!  The KEY to how you loose things from the heavens to come to you on Earth is that you open the DOOR of your mouth and speak what you want loose.  The KEY to how you bind things in the heavens to stop or return back to where it came from is that you speak what you are binding out of the DOOR of your mouth!  Your DOOR IS WHAT CONNECTS the SEEN REALM with the UNSEEN REALM or HEAVENS!  And the KEYS to send, receive, form, rebuke, change, start, stop, bind and loose from one Realm to the other Realm has been left up to us.  And the KEYS that The Lord has given us to operate our DOORS or mouths with unlock things in the “heavens” from one Realm to another Realm.  Amazing, isn’t it!  We have been given such responsibility from The Lord!  
 

The Opening, Doorway, Entrance

 
 
 
 
       Beloved, the Hebrew word for DOOR is pethach (Strong Number 6607).  It means opening, doorway, entrance, entering in.  Now with all of this being shown to us, I want you to take some time and really think about this.  We are responsible.  The Lord has made us responsible.  We are the managers and administrators of the DOOR of our mouths that is again sending, receiving, forming, rebuking, changing, starting, stopping, binding and loosing from one Realm to the other Realm in the heavens!  The entrance of our DOOR is allowing things IN and OUT!  So, when we are just letting whatever we think come out of our DOOR, what are we sending, receiving, forming, rebuking, changing, starting, stopping, binding and loosing from one Realm to the other Realm?  What negative, terrible, harmful, damaging and destructive things are we releasing into the heavens that are damaging ourselves or others?  It is Time for The Bride of Christ to rise up and be the Ambassadors for The Kingdom of God that we were created to be!  To speak on behalf of The King and His Word and be great Managers over our responsibilities and DOORS!  It is our privilege to have the Authority of God to speak and command the heavens and what is within them to obey us and not it rule us!  
 
 
 
 
 
       I know that this is remarkable to think about and understand that we are the ones who are to be in charge of these Realms, but according to The Word . . . we are!  That is why we are told in The Bible in Romans 12:2 (NIV), Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”  We must renew our minds to who we are and the power that has been given to us.  And through the renewing of our minds we find ourselves as The Word says being able to test and approve what God’s good and pleasing Will is.  As we renew our minds to the things of God and His Word and choose to obey what He says and not what we think, we will see more success and victory as we handle the DOORS into the heavens that have been given to us.  I encourage you to spend time in prayer and ask The Lord Jesus to help you in the operation of your DOOR.  And if you have been releasing out of your DOOR things that were not LIFE . . . REPENT.  And, oh is it time to do that!  
 
       As we wrote you last Month we are presently in the repentance time of ELUL, which prepares us for the New Year on God’s Calendar.  Beginning on the Sunset of 23 August 2017 through the Sunset of 20 September 2017 we are blessed to be in the very crucial and intimate time on God’s calendar called ELUL.  ELUL means “to search” and “to repent,” it is also known as “the month of repentance,” “the month of mercy,” and “the month of forgiveness.”  The letters of E-L-U-L can be understood as an acronym for the Hebrew verse Ani L'dodi V'dodi Li--"I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine." (Song of Solomon 6:3)  During this time of year we are to reflect on what we have done wrong in the past year and ask God to forgive us.  We are also to search ourselves and grant forgiveness to others and ask for forgiveness from others also.  Elul is the time when one searches one’s heart and draws close to God preparing for the Day of Atonement.
