KNOWING THE REALMS, Part 4 “Let The FRAMING Begin!”

 

 Hello to our Covenant Partners and Friends and so many others that this Teaching reaches!  Dewayne and I want to stop and begin this Teaching by first saying to our Covenant Partners and Friends that we are so grateful for you!  You give and love others so unselfishly!  So many others benefit from your love, prayers and giving into this Ministry.  This FREE Teaching sent out is just ONE of the results of your Ministry to others.  THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!

 
       Since our last Teaching was sent out there have been so many things that are manifesting in the Earth that are Biblical.  Before we get into this Month’s Teaching, let’s “compare” some things going on.  The Bible tells us that there is a TIME of things that will take place in the Earth and “Signs” of that TIME that has been told to us, so that we may know the Season that we are in.  The Church is to know what TIME She is in.  Of course, we have all seen and heard various things that Jesus told us would be going on in the Earth marking the “Birth Pains” that would eventually “deliver” us as The Church out of the Earth.  He told His first Disciples about the Signs of our Day,
 
 
 
 
“While Jesus was seated on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, and said, “Tell us, when will this [destruction of the temple] take place, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end (completion, consummation) of the age?” 4 Jesus answered, “Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error]. 6 You will continually hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end [of the age]. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish and the time of unprecedented trouble]. . . . 32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its young shoots become tender and it puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near; 33 so you, too, when you see all these things [taking place], know for certain that He is near, right at the door. 34 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, this generation [the people living when these signs and events begin] will not pass away until all these things take place. Matthew 24:3-4, 6-8, 32-34 (AMP)


       And in Luke 21:25 (AMP) it continues to describe our Days, There will be signs (attesting miracles) in the sun and moon and stars; and on the earth [there will be] distress and anguish among nations, in perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea and the waves,”
 
      
 
 
 
       The “conflicts” in our World and threats and actions of War, just to name a few are North Korea, Iran, Syria, Egypt, Sudan, Turkey, Yemen, Africa, Somalia, Afghanistan, Israel, Kenya, Iraq, Venezuela and of course The United States.  We are witnessing ISIS continually plotting to kill abroad and here and the uprisings of public gatherings of violence in the United States.  There are earthquakes all over the World and tragically so as of recent in Mexico.  We are seeing the humanitarian crisis in Africa, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Mexico and the destruction in Texas.  “The perplexity at the roaring and the tossing of the seas” by the names of “Harvey,” “Maria” and “Irma.”  And in verses 32-34 of Matthew 24 we are told that the “fig tree” which is Israel and Her rebirth for many years now, and ALL OF THIS HAPPENING TOGETHER, tells us that this IS THE TIME THAT JESUS TOLD US ABOUT!  He was talking about us in Matthew 24!  That’s amazing to think about that day Jesus prophesied about OUR TIMES right there with the Disciples!  
 
       Yet, know that you know Church that there is HOPE in the midst of ALL that we are witnessing and experiencing!  We have been chosen to be living in the TIME that is talked about in Matthew 24!  We could have been placed in History in any TIME, yet our Father wanted us here, right now.  So, when you are seeing, hearing and experiencing all that is going on and as you are seeing Matthew 24 in our World happening, try with all that is in you to stop and read and remember what Matthew 24 also says.  “So you, too, when you see all these things [taking place], know for certain that He is near, right at the door. 34 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, this generation [the people living when these signs and events begin] will not pass away until all these things take place.”  The Rapture and The King are close, Beloved.  We just have to remember that the “Birth Pains” have begun and The Master said to not be frightened or afraid (Verse 6).  And not being afraid or frightened when we see everything going on at one time truly takes a renewing of our minds to not do!  So, how does one control their minds in TIMES like these?  Let’s learn together what The Word of God says about this and see what The Teacher wants to show us.  Teach us Lord!  
 

Recap The DOOR and The KEY

 
 
 
 
 
       For three other Teachings we have been learning about The Realms that we live in.  And that there is SO MUCH more that is going on all around us than what we can see, hear, feel, touch and smell in the Natural Realm.  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 world.”  Then we have discussed that there is a DOOR that is between the “Seen” Realm that we are the most familiar with in our lives and the “Unseen” Realm that we are learning about.  This DOOR opens up one Realm to another.  For, we know that Psalm 141:3 (NIV) tells us, Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.”
 
       We talked about before that we are the ones who are affecting one Realm by what we are saying in this Realm!  Each time you speak, your "DOOR" is opening up from ONE REALM TO ANOTHER REALM and affecting what is going on in BOTH REALMS!  We discussed that our Angels that live in the Unseen Realm are affected by what we are allowing to come out of our DOORS.  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 are WAITING ON YOU AND I to speak The Word of God so that they can do it for us!  They are to obey “the voice of His Word.”  And we are The Body of Christ here in the World and we are His Voice here!  We have to speak what He has said to give our Angels something to work with!  They OBEY THE VOICE OF HIS WORD!  
 
       We also went over last Month that there is a KEY to the DOOR that opens one Realm to another Realm.  Matthew 16:19 tells us about these KEYS.  “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 in the (YLT) Young’s Literal Translation it reads, “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.”  
 
 
 
 
 
       In these two Translations we see that the KEYS are “the things you don’t allow . . . God does not allow” and the “the things you allow . . . God allows.”  Secondly, we have been given, “the keys of the reign of the heavens.”  And thirdly, “whatever” WE DECIDE to bind or loose . . . IS!  So, the KEYS to the DOORS (which is our mouths or lips, Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips”) is that I DECIDE what I am going to “allow” and “not allow.”  And I DECIDE what I am going to “bind” or “loose” in the Earth and in the heavens.  Again we must remember that we are talking about the Earth that we know in the natural Realm and one of the “heavens” that is called the Unseen Realm or World. (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 6:12)  
 
       The responsibility that we have been given in the Earth is enormous!  And most Christians have no idea that they possess and are actually executing these rights!  If you are truly Born Again, you are a son or daughter of The Most High God.  He has given us the power and authority while here on Earth to do the things His Firstborn, Jesus did.  Jesus said He left and would send Another, The Holy Spirit to continue on the Ministry through us, The Body of Jesus Christ. (John 14:26)  When Jesus needs to get things done in the Earth, He is going to use us!  So, why isn’t The Body of Christ, The Church, taking VERY SERIOUSLY our responsibilities and executing our DOORS and KEYS in alignment with The Word of God?  Because we DON’T KNOW WHO WE REALLY ARE and WE DON’T KNOW HOW TO USE WHAT WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN!  Or, we don’t want to take responsibility for this much power.  The later reason, though very hard to read, is very true.  There are some in The Body of Christ who will read or hear Teachings on these Truths of the power of their DOORS (mouths-words) and the responsibility of the KEYS of what they “allow” or “do not allow” and will ignore it or choose to not utilize their God given power for The Kingdom of God.  Some will choose to not believe that THEY could be responsible for many of the things that are happening all around them, for they use their DOORS (mouths-words) for negative and not good things.  No wonder The Lord said that we will give an account for every idle word that we speak! (Matthew 12:36)  EVERY WORD COUNTS!
 
 

 
 
       Matthew 16:19 (YLT) says, “and I will give to thee the keys of the reign of the heavens . . .  Really think about this, we have been given, “the keys of the reign of the heavens.”  “Reign” is Strong’s Number 932 which is (basileia) which means kingship, sovereignty, authority, rule, kingdom, time in power, period of office, control, manage, be in charge of, run, be in command of.  The word “heavens” is Strong’s Number 3772 which is (ouranos)the root is . . . to cover and encompass, the visible heavens: the atmosphere, the sky, (b) the spiritual heavens.  Let’s put this together.  The Lord Jesus, Who PAID for all that we lost in the Garden of Eden and got back all the Authority and the Right to the Authority that was lost by Adam and Eve, also paid for so much more . . . including all the Power and Authority over the devil!  WE have “physical and mental strength and ability over all the power that the enemy possesses.”  Jesus gave US the Authority and Power to operate here on the Earth! 
 
 

“Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.” Luke 10:19 (AMPC)

       In addition, King Jesus made us kings and priests under Him! Revelation tells us this clearly!

Revelation 1:5-6 (KJV) “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” 
 
So, when we are looking at Matthew 16:19 and it says, “and I will give to thee the keys of the reign of the heavensthere is so much in these words.  Remember, “Reign” is Strong’s Number 932 which is (basileia) which means kingship, sovereignty, authority, rule, kingdom, time in power, period of office, control, manage, be in charge of, run, be in command of.  The word “heavens” is Strong’s Number 3772 which is (ouranos) which the root is . . . to cover and encompassAs the kings and priests left in charge down here we are to be using the authority and power that has been given to us by Jesus FOR HIS KINGDOM and HIS WILL IN THE EARTH!  Jesus didn’t just save you from Hell, He has made you into a powerful authority that He wants to utilize in the Earth!  He is looking for an Army that will TAKE ORDERS and GIVE ORDERS!  He is needing in these final hours of the Last Days an Army that will use their kingship, sovereignty, authority, rule, kingdom, time in power and period in office to be in charge of, run, be in command of and rule!  Praise To The King!
 
 
 
 
       And what does He want us to have authority over?  Our lives, bodies and the devil and his kingdom!  Let’s look again at Matthew 16:19 which says, “and I will give to thee the keys of the reign of the heavens.”  This is so important!  The word “heavens” is Strong’s Number 3772 which is (ouranos) which the root is . . . to cover and encompass.  And what we have been discussing for Months now is this PLACE called the Unseen World!  Ephesians 6:12, “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.”  WHERE ARE THESE “HEAVENLY PLACES” THAT ARE “UNSEEN?”  THEY ARE “ENCOMPASSING”YOU!  This is what “heavens” means!  The definition for “encompass” is to surround and have or hold within, to enclose, encircle, border, include, contain and involve.  The “heavens”, which is the Unseen World, is all around us.  As stated before we live in the “Seen” Realm which you can see, hear, feel, taste and smell.  The Unseen Realm is just as real, if not more real, than what you can sense.  And you have been given the authority and power and the keys to operate and have dominion over these Realms, Beloved! 
 
 
Let’s IMAGINE For A Bit 

 


 
 
       We have been given a wonderful thing called an imagination.  Most of the time that we mention this gift is when we are talking about children and how they will use their imaginations to play and become a Superhero or a police officer, cowboy, mother or some other role that they have observed or possibly have watched on television.  The children focus on what it would be like to be that “role model” and they will begin acting and talking as if they really are that person.  And a child can use their imaginations for hours becoming and playing in the role that they are imagining.  Yet what if using your imagination was not just intended to be for children?  What if Father God gave us our imaginations to be used when we become adults too?  What if it was one of the most important things that we could learn to utilize for The Kingdom of God and for our lives?
 
       The word “imagination” is the Hebrew Strong’s Number 3336, (yester) which is a form, conception, framing, purpose, formed, frame, handiwork, construction, intent (aim, goal, target, objective, plan, meaning, purpose), intentions, mind, steadfast purpose, what is framed in the mind, of good and bad tendency in man, to determine (Form a resolution).  Well, I’ll just say it, WOW!  Do you ever begin to think on something and just know that you are about to start a journey that is going to take you somewhere?  That’s what I am thinking right now as we begin, together, to look at our imaginations. 
 
       Let’s just begin with a few things that mean “imagination.”  Just a few things that “imagination” means are a form, conception and framing.  For something to FORM it must begin with an image.  We think in images.  Most of the time when someone says a word or a sentence with a few words in it, you and I don’t think of what that person is saying by seeing the letter of the words they speak.  We instead get an image in our minds of what is said.  For example, if you were not reading this and you heard someone say “dog,” you would usually get an image of a dog.  Your image of a dog may be brown with spots and with some white color on his belly.  I may get an image of a dog that is solid white.  Another person may think of the image of the dog to be a golden retriever.  We mostly think in images, not letters to words.  We think in images of words.  
  

IMAGE” is a Reproduction or Imitation of the FORM of a person or thing; especially an imitation in solid form.
