Its All A Matter of Your Gut!


 Romans 6:9  knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, no longer dies. Death is no longer master over Him.

Eph 2:6  and raised us up together, and seated us together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus,

Christ was raised from the dead, and the Christian was co raised with Him.

In Romans 6:9, the words for “knowing that” is oida.

Oida is gut knowledge.

This is not knowledge that you go to school to gain.

Oida means that “you know, that you know, that you know.”

When you see a girl with a blue dress, you know it’s blue. No schooling required.

In your gut, you know that Christ was raised? Oh yeah, we have no problem with that!

Eph 2:6  and raised us up together, and seated us together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus,

But in your gut do you know that at the moment Christ was raised, so were you?

If you say yes, you are lying

With my head I knew that I’ve been co raised with Christ.

But for thirty six years I have not lived as such, clinging instead to, and governed by earth.

Today, this was settled in my gut.

I’ve been detached from earth’s dictates by sheer distance between it and me, because I am raised.

My life begun anew.

I am physically higher in distance above planet earth.

The laws of earth are not my governing principle.

Neither are politicians or the economy or anything else.

Sin and pain and sickness can no longer stick to to me.

I am physically above their heads so they can’t reach me with slimy fingers.

I am hovering far above the earth, looking down.

I’m living from the environment and culture of the heavens rather than the earth.

Eph 1:20  which He worked in Christ, having raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenlies,

 Eph 2:6  and raised us up together, and seated us together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus,

God’s raising up is not the means to the end.

God raised up Christ to make Him sit.

So where did Christ end up sitting?

It’s on a throne made up of God’s glory. Every atom of it is glory.

God’s glory is more potent than all.

God’s glory is what transforms people from sinful temporal creatures, to the eternal and perfect.

Because Christ is seated, He functions from authority and rest.

This throne is physically above all demonic and angelic principalities and everything that has a name, which is everything.

Mt 25:31  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all he holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

So God raised us with Christ in order to make us sit with Him.

How does it feel to live a life seated on a throne made up of glory?

On massive cushion of glory is all that is around you.

This cushion blocks off all the stuff occurring on earth.

Everything ebbs from this throne in power, glory, authority and endless riches.

Is this you?  Is this your revelation? Is this what drives your gut?

We can go on and on.

The bottom line is that it’s all a matter of your gut.

Access Into the Storehouse of God


At First Friday Fire yesterday I received a very important word.

This word can apply to everyone.

As I was praying  I realized that I needed prayer.

There was something  that I needed deliverance from.

Even now, there are things that I cannot get freedom, no matter what I do.

We are friends with a seer in NY.

As she prayed for me concerning this, these were her words, and I paraphrase them.

“Because your ancestral lines did not fulfill the destinies which God had for them, the fullness of the blessings of God through your families did not come to you. There has been a curse on your family lines.

She then had me forgive my ancestral lines and then had me stand proxy, in their place, and ask God to forgive them.

Then she said that God had my own storehouse in heavenly plaice containing all that God has for and wants to give to me.

I now had full access to tap into this room whereas before I could not because of the family curse and because the access into this room had been blocked”

I think that this word can apply to so many.

Ask God if this is for you.

Past The Age Of Old


 Rom 8:38  For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present (perfect active participle), nor things to come, (impending or coming from the invisible kingdom of God upon us from moment to moment) (present active participle)

1Co 3:22  whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present(perfect active participle), or things to come (present active participle)—all are yours,

 2 Cor 5:16  Therefore, henceforth know ( instinctual knowledge/ (perfect active indicative) we no man according to the flesh; yea, though we have known  (progressive knowledge/ (perfect active indicative)  Christ according to the flesh, yet now henceforth we know (progressive knowledge/ (present active indicative)   Him so no more.

17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; ( passed by/ aorist active indicative) behold ( see!/ command), all things have become new ( perfect active indicative).

2 Corinthians 5:17  states that old things are passed away.

Literally, the things of this world system have passed us by, and have  perished out of our sight, by their passing.

Rom 8:38  For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present (perfect active participle), nor things to come, (impending or coming from the invisible kingdom of God upon us from moment to moment) (present active participle)

The perfect tense defines an action completed in the past, but its effects now are as real as when they first occurred.

1Co 3:22  whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present (perfect active participle), or things to come (present active participle)—all are yours,

The things present are the things which make up our fallen world system.

All daily circumstances are made up of things present.

We note that though many of the things present were created a long time back, their effects unabated endure today.

This is why Paul is careful to place them in the perfect tense.

Let’s look at something else.

Ro 8:18  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall <3195> (5723) be revealed in us.

Ro 8:38  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come <3195> (5723),

1Co 3:22  Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come <3195> (5723); all are yours;

Eph 1:21  Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come <3195> (5723):

Col 2:17  Which are a shadow of things to come <3195> (5723); but the body is of Christ.

1Ti 4:8  For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having (5723) promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come <3195> (5723).

1Ti 6:19  Laying up in store (5723) for themselves a good foundation against the time to come <3195> (5723), that they may lay hold on eternal life.

Heb 2:5  For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come <3195> (5723), whereof we speak.

Heb 6:5  And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come <3195> (5723),

Heb 9:11  But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come <3195> (5723), by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

Heb 10:1  For the law having (5723) a shadow of good things to come <3195> (5723), and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

Rom 8:38  For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present (perfect active participle), nor things to come, (impending or coming from the invisible kingdom of God upon us from moment to moment) (present active participle)

“The things to come”, which Paul loves to often express, are in the present active participle.

I have noted the combination of the word definition and its verb tense.

The Strong’s word 3195 is “mello”. This is defined as the coming, impending, imminent, approaching things that are about to happen.

The verb tense in every instance for mello is the present participle, which is number 5723.

This is the combination of 3195 and 5723 that you see in the above scriptures.

The present is just what it says. There is something that is occurring right here and now, in the present.

The participle is our “ing” verbs.  Coming, doing, eating, and sleeping are all examples of the present participle.

The things which are to come, in Paul’s mind, have to do with the age of the kingdom of God, rather than the age of this natural fallen kingdom.

Heb 6:5  And have tasted the good word ( rhema word)  of God, and the powers  (abilities) of the world to come <3195> (5723),

The abilities of God’s kingdom are not only impending, but are continually coming upon us from  moment to moment.

Paul always places them in the present participle.

We must appreciate that the things of God’s invisible kingdom are continually being transmitted upon the earth. As a TV antenna, our spiritual eyes and faith receive them, while the word cannot. It’s tuned to the wrong frequency.

Rom 8:38  For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present (perfect active participle), nor things to come, (impending or coming from the invisible kingdom of God upon us from moment to moment) (present active participle)

 2 Cor 517  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; ( passed by/ aorist active indicative) behold ( see!/ command), all things have become new ( perfect active indicative).

So the things present, though still present to the world, have passed us by. They are out of sight, and out of mind.

Paul tells us to leave those things behind, and to now, “ behold! “

What is to “behold” something?

Beholding, entails not only seeing an object, but at the moment of seeing, to be brought  into a shift, a new paradigm, or a new season of life, through the beholding.

Beholding a check of $50,000.00 which somebody has blessed you with, brings you into an instantaneous shift, a new paradigm, and season in life.

Paul tells us that the present things have passed us by.

Therefore, behold now the impending and continually coming things of Gods kingdom!!!…  and let them shift you into a new paradigm or season of life!

Paul tells us that the impeding things of God’s kingdom that continually come upon us are the things which now stand in the perfect tense.

These are the things which are to be our reality.

2 Cor 517  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; ( passed by/ aorist active indicative) behold ( see!/ command), all things have become new ( perfect active indicative).

We are called to live by the invisible.

Heb 11:27  By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him ( discerning Him/ present participle) who is invisible.

Moses forsook Egypt by continually discerning He who is invisible. What about us? Are we better than him?

2Co 4:18  While we look ( scope out ) not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal ( are in relation to a season) ; but the things which are not seen are eternal. (are in relation to eternity)

We are to scope out or look at the things which are not seen, but are continually coming upon us. It is those things which last forever. The present things are related to a season.

Our minds are to be renewed until we can apprehend that the things present are no longer our reality. Our experiences are not to be guided by them.

When we are delivered from living out of  temporal things and find it second nature to inspect the continually coming things of God’s kingdom, our lives will radically change.

Ga 6:14  But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

We will grasp circumstances, political affairs, our lives, and so much more, not through the dictates of things present, but rather through the continually coming things of God’s kingdom

We  are dead, crucified to this world system, and the world system crucified to us.

We are seated above in the heavens, ruling and reigning.

All that we do, we do it from a throne.

We do it from above, looking down.

We do it from the standpoint of authority and rulership.

As that great musician Jimi Hendrix once said in a lyric of a song called “ Up From the Skies.”

“I heard some of you got your families
Living in cages tall and cold
And some just stay there and dust away
Past the age of old.”

Jimi Hendrix

We can’t stay in the bondage of cages tall and cold and simply dust away;

We need to live past the age of old.

2 Cor 5:17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things have become new.
