Third Dimension, Chapter Four

 The Third Dimension

  Chapter Four

 

Paul said in Col. 3:1;

"If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory."

If you then be risen with Christ.....This is Third Dimension! Death, Burial, and Resurrection!

If you have passed through the veil, which is your flesh, your works, your ability, your talent, and have entered into His rest, then you have experience the resurrection of Christ and your life is hidden in Him. You must realize that your life is now hidden with Christ in God. This being a truth, Paul said, "Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth."

The Greek word for affection is No. 5426. phroneo, fron-eh'-o; from G5424; to exercise the mind, i.e. entertain or have a sentiment or opinion; by impl. to be (mentally) disposed (more or less earnestly in a certain direction); intens. to interest oneself in (with concern or obedience):--set the affection on, (be) care (-ful), (be like-, + be of one, + be of the same, + let this) mind (-ed, regard, savour, think )

In other words, set you affection, your mind, your attention, your whole interest on things above. Ask yourself this question. "What do I think about most of the time?" What you think about becomes the way you conduct your life. If you are to progress in the Kingdom of God you must see into the eternity of God. The only way that you can do this is to set your thinking on the things of the Spirit. You will never be able to do anything in the earth that you don't first see in the heavenlies. This is why God told Josuah in Josh 1:8 ;

"Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful."

This is the alignment we must come into in order for His anointing to flow. In the second dimension we have been in a form of religion where we decide what we want to do and then try to talk God into blessing it. This is why our prayers have been, for the most part, wasted. You can pray all day and if your prayers are not according to the Word of God they will accomplish very little. It doesn't take all day to pray through. We somehow have gotten the idea that prayer is informing God about everything that is happening to us and how bad we have it.

James said in James 5:16;

"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."

Again Jesus said in Mat 6:10;

"Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven."

The way this happens is for us to see into the heavenlies by faith. Hebrews 11:1 says:

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

But if I can see the unseen and if I can lay my eyes on that which is done in the heavenlies, I will have the faith to bring it to pass in the natural. The reason I can enter in to this realm is because the Spirit, Himself, helps me. Paul said in Romans 8:26;

"Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God."

My infirmity is that I am blind to the things of God and can not see! But the Spirit searches the deep things of God and He knows what is the mind of God. The Holy Spirit shows me in the heavenlies what God has already finished and when I see it in the heavenlies I instantly have the power to bring it to pass.

This is really the faith that overcomes the world in me and that overcomes my worldly state, my earthly state. Seeing it by faith is what brings it to pass in my world and it won't come until I see it. Paul said in Col 3:3,

"For you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory."

Notice he said "When Christ, who is our life.... In what dimension is life? Jesus said that He was the way, the truth, and the life! The life He was talking about is in the Third Dimension! Paul said in 2 Cor 3:18;

"And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."

Unveiled literally means `hymen'. It literally means to break through the veil of flesh into the womb of God. To the place where seed is planted that grows out of the heart of God.

It means that we have taken off the veil of unbelief and have stepped into the Dimension where God births things and we all with unveiled faces reflect the Lord's glory and are changed into the same image with ever increasing glory.

This literally means that I come into this place by the Holy Spirit and I become what I behold. What I see! When I walk in this Dimension Christ is seen living in me and the world sees a pure manifestation of Him in my life. Which in reality is not my life but His life. Paul saw this when he said in Gal 2:20;

"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."

This is a Dimension of Faith that we have not entered into. This Dimension of Faith is Kingdom Faith. This is where you seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness first and all things are added to you. This is where we stop trying to be like God and trying to make it happen for God and stop trying to build the Church for God.

John said in Rev 12:1;

"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born."

This woman is the Church and she is standing on the moon. The moon is a reflector of the sun. The woman, the Church is a reflector of the Son, Jesus Christ. We become what we behold. She is clothed with the Son because His light is shinning on her. She is in order as one under authority. The woman, who is the Church, is the lessor light. The sun rules the day and the moon rules the night. This tells us very plainly that the Church rules darkness.

The woman had a crown of twelve stars meaning that there were twelve foundations which means she was completely under government. She was completely in order. If she is not in order she will not have a manchild. The woman was taken into the wilderness for three and a half years. The term `three and a half years' means length of ministry. Jesus ministered three and a half years. John the Baptist ministered three and a half years. Elijah shut up the heavens three and a half years. The fullness of ministry is going to come to pass from a woman who has entered into her wilderness which means that she can produce nothing.

In the greatest prayer recorded by Jesus is in John chapter seventeen when He prayed;

"And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gave me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was."

Jesus was in the upper room when He prayed this prayer and yet He said, "I am no longer in this world and I have finished the work you gave me to do." Not only was Jesus in the upper room but He had not gone to the cross to purchase our freedom yet. How could this be? You explain this to me?

Listen! Jesus just stepped out of time into eternity where everything is now. From the beginning to the end everything is now. It's the forever of God because He doesn't live in time. God lives in eternity. When Jesus came and gave us life, He gave us eternity because that is where He dwells and He dwells in us!

The Church has been trying to produce Christ out of a time warp. With the Church everything is sometime in the future, but God wants to perform His work out of eternity.

How many of you have a watch on? If you were not dying you wouldn't wear a watch. You wear a watch because you want to be on time. Time is only a marker for your mortality, however, everything in God is now. This is why Paul said in Heb 11:1;

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Jesus said in Mark 11:24 ;

"Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them."

In God's eternity there is no time. How many times have you ever said, "Well, it will happen in God's time!" Well, I have good news for you! God's time is NOW! Heb 4:1 says;

"Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, 'They shall never enter my rest.'" And yet his work has been finished since the creation of the world.

For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it.

For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith.

Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, "So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.'" And yet his work has been finished since the creation of the world.

For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in these words: "And on the seventh day God rested from all his work. " And again in the passage above he says, "They shall never enter my rest."

It still remains that some will enter that rest, and those who formerly had the gospel preached to them did not go in, because of their disobedience.

Therefore God again set a certain day, calling it Today, when a long time later he spoke through David, as was said before: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts." For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day.

There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his.

Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of unbelief.

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."

Notice that the people of Moses time could have entered His rest but because of unbelief they entered not in. Abraham entered in by faith and became the father of the faithful.

Moses entered in by faith and God gave the law and the shadow through him. These two transcended time by their faith even though the cross had not yet come. They were able to do this because God does not live in time but one eternal now.

Because of this you do not have to wait for another time to receive the things of God because you can transcend time by faith. You can have the rest of God right now today if you want to enter in.

Look at verse 7 again;

"Therefore God again set a certain day, calling it Today, when a long time later he spoke through David, as was said before: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts." For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day."

God first offered it to Abraham and here He is offering it to David. Notice that God calls it Today! There is no yesterday or tomorrow with God. Joshua led the children of Israel into the promise land but this did not bring them into rest. If he had God would not have spoken later to David about another day!

Now, look at verse 9-11;

"There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from His.

Hang onto your hat now! If Jesus had given us the rest Paul would not have said

"Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of unbelief."

Jesus provide for us the way but we must labor to enter into that rest. I can not give you this rest and neither can any other preacher give you this rest. You and only you can do that and we must labor to enter that rest and without faith this is impossible!

Again, Jesus was able to say, "Now I am no more in the world, and I have finished the work , because He was able to stepped out of time into eternity where everything is now. From the beginning to the end everything is now and everything is finished in Gods eternity.

While you are waiting for a dispensation to come to pass, while you are waiting for Jesus to come, while you are waiting for things to happen you are missing a very important point.

Anything that God has ever said belongs the Church, belongs to the Church today! Right now! You can not enter into what belongs to the Church by time. You must enter in by faith!

Notice verse 10 of Hebrews 4;

"For anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from His."

If we ever meditate on this verse of scripture until we get the revelation of it we will realize that everything is already done. Finished. We can rest from trying to make it happen because it is happening!

"Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of unbelief."

In our discussion of the Third Dimension, in no way do I want you to think that those who enter into this Dimension just sit back and fold their arms and do nothing because God is going to everything. I am talking about you coming into an order, a Dimension in God where you, by believing, enter His rest. Believing is the action word of Faith. When I do actually believe, I will see what God's Word is actually saying and by seeing I will activate my faith and bring it into reality. I literally see the unseen by the eye of faith. We actually use the creative power of our imagination to create in the natural what already exist in the spiritual.

This is why Jesus never made a mistake in His ministry. He said in John 5:19;

"I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does."

Jesus said, "I can do only what I see My Father doing!" He could see it already done in the heavenlies. When you see it in the heavenlies that is faith. Faith is not trying to make something happen! Faith is not trying to have something! Faith is not trying to believe! Faith is when we finally have revelation of God's word and can say, "Oh! I can see that!" A picture is worth a thousand words.

When this happens, if we will come into alignment with what has been revealed to us; then what we see done in the heavenlies we can declare done in the earth. When we receive revelation from the Spirit we must align our thinking and our ways with that revelation in order to see it come to pass in our lives. This is something that I, nor no other man of God can do for you. I can spend hours and hours in the Word and present to you, by the anointing of the Holy Spirit, revelation from God. But I cannot align your life with it. Only you can do this. And if you don't apply the revelation to your life you will loose the power of it. This is why I offer my notes to you for your meditation and make tapes and teaching materials available to you. If I can get you to see it, you will have the faith to enter into it.

I don't have to teach it to you anymore, because you just simply enter into it. I believe that God can do things now that most people regulate to the future. I believe that the things that I have always hoped and dreamed for are to happening now. I believe that I can transcend now into that greater dimension of Faith. Coming into that place of glory where God manifest His power. I refuse to live my life anywhere else. I refuse to live in or teach a partial gospel.

Jesus said in Mat 24:27;

"For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."

The comings of the Lord by revelation are not just here a little and over there something but God wants to bring a wholeness to His Church. Jesus said in Mat 24:28;

"For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together."

Jesus is the carcass and we feed on Him. His Five Fold Ministries are the eagles. If you want to have more of Jesus just find out where the eagles are gathered.

Pray this prayer now.

Father,

I enter in to your rest today in my spirit, in my mind and in my body. I am willing to lay down my life and to loose my life in order to come into the greater knowledge of the purpose of Christ.

And this very day I look to see what God has prepared in the heavenlies. I will come into order and into alignment so that I may receive the fullness of the purpose of God for my life. NOW!

In Jesus name!

Amen!
