Believing the Secrets of the Son’s Name

Immortality Road

Man wrestles with God over belief. It is all about faith, or a lack of it. Hence, all will not believe the following words about belief. Yet these words are written down and are essential for the future 100-fold fruit bearers, the elect for these latter days. The following knowledge is crucial for those predestined to sit with Christ on His throne when He returns to earth: “To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne…” (Rev. 3:20). These following words are better swallowed and digested in small contemplative bites.

“Belief” and “faith” are translated from the same Greek word. Faith is being sure of the things that we hope for based on God’s promises to us. Belief/faith is also being certain of the things that cannot be seen (Heb. 11:1 NIV).

We are told to believe in God. But what does that mean exactly?…

Taking the Kingdom by Force—The Battle in the Heavenly Dimension

Last June I lay on my bed, meditating on how heaven was another dimension–how this spiritual dimension was God’s dwelling place. His presence was so close that afternoon that He was “at hand,” that He could literally be touched…For He said, “Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.” It is right here. I never truly understood that before. Then I drifted off.

Thirty minutes later I felt two thumps on my chest like when you tap someone to wake them up. I woke up. And then I knew that God rewarded my search for Him through the gentle taps on my chest. He wanted me to know that He heard me. He wanted to encourage me, for I had been having a tough week.

Some scriptures came to mind. “For we live, move, and have our being in him…” and, “Though He be not far from us…” ( Acts 17: 27-28; Col. 1: 17).

Crossing over

Christ beckons us to cross over from our current earthly, material dimension thinking into His spiritual, heavenly dimension. For heaven is that same spiritual dimension that Christ and his apostles walked in. That is where the healings are performed. That is where the staggering miracles reside. It is in that heavenly dimension where we will find all the power that Christ promised us.

Remember Christ’s words: “Even the Son of man which is in heaven” (John 3:13). He spoke these words standing on earth in a mortal body. Therefore, he was speaking about where His heart, mind and spirit were. He was speaking of “heaven” being the invisible spiritual dimension where the Spirit dwells.

How do we access that dimension? We must meditate on his words of promise that He has left us. We must believe His words. Faith is and has always been the key. How else does one approach an invisible Supreme Being except through belief, yet having not seen Him and His Kingdom and His dimension.

Crashing Through

For we must crash through the material worldly barrier that separates us from this wonderful, invisible Holy Spirit dimension. Christ did say that the “violent take the Kingdom by force” (Matt. 11:12). Why is there such a struggle in the destiny of God’s elect? The struggle is not with other humans. No, it’s a struggle in the spiritual dimension, of which we speak. We wrestle against powers that invisibly course through that spiritual Heavenly dimension.  [Satan is the Prince and power of the air].

[I know that I must seem insane, talking about invisible spirits intersecting our physical lives. But I am merely a teacher/reporter, sharing truths that, for some reason, have been shared with me by our Wonderful Father. These things are what Paul, John, James and Peter, as well as many more of Christ’s apostles, talked about. It is there in black and white.]

Into the Dragon’s Lair

We must understand that the spiritual land of miracles and great grace is, also, the battleground where we face the dragon. With this knowledge, references about war in the scriptures come into focus. “Fight the good fight of faith…” and, “the armor of God,” and “Endure hardness as a good soldier…” and “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds…”

This is the battle we are in as followers of Yahshua the Anointed One. Only those who overcome the spiritual battles will be counted worthy of sitting with Christ on his throne and being rulers over 10 cities in his Kingdom coming to this earth. I speak not of only salvation, which is wonderful. But we speak of the manifestation of the sons of God, of the 100 fold fruit bearing disciples spoken of in Revelation 14 and 7. We speak not of the little children of God, who are saved. There is so much more than being a dependent little “babe in Christ.” God has chosen those who will be strong and valiant, who will bear the brunt of battle with wicked, unseen, spiritual forces that lay before us to conquer, in this spiritual dimension. This is the challenge for the elect. This is what we must understand to know what is happening to us.

But through it all, God is close to us in His spiritual dimension. He beckons us to seek those things that are not seen and not seek those things that are seen. “While we look not at the things that are seen, but at the things that are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (II Cor. 4:18).

He calls many and chooses but a few, and He will give them a whiff of His spiritual dimension. And as they struggle to climatize and get their bearings in this new invisible land, God allows an evil entity that tries to convince us that “there is nothing to see here,” that “all things continue as they were” (II Peter 3:4).

The Garden of Eden Experience

It is the Garden of Eden experience again. The Garden is like God’s spiritual dimension. And He has allowed Satan to walk to and fro in it (Job 1). Satan tempts us with the fruit of the material, earthly dimension. Every temptation has to do with the physical and material, not the spiritual.

We have all heard the voice of the dark spirit, which is designed to discourage us. Satan is doing his job, ironically trying to detour us from coming to the spiritual dimension of God. Overcoming him strengthens us and brings new power in His spiritual realm.

The patriarchs, prophets, and apostles had experiences in the spiritual dimension. The signs, wonders, and miracles that intersected their lives show that there was another dimension at play.

As they overcame their adversaries, they received confirmation that God is real with His Spirit running through their hearts and minds.  Ah, but that is the problem for us today. Spiritually we want to eat the fat of the land without first conquering our spiritual enemies. We want to pluck and taste the grape without first seizing it from the nations of Canaan, without first conquering the land.

We must seek the Spirit with a whole heart. For there is “spiritual wickedness in high places.” Our fight is not with other human beings, but with “the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this Dark World and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Eph. 6:12). Yes, we heard right. Right now, as we read this, there are invisible, evil spirit/powers in the heavenly spiritual dimension, of which we speak!

Remember how the four beasts, the four evil world Gentile empires, are seated around the throne of God (Rev. 6:1; Dan. 7:3)? This is symbolic of them being in His plan all along. [Stay with me.]

God tells us to seek and you will find. Where do we seek? Answer: Seek His Spirit, our source of power in the heavenly dimension. That is where the power of God is. We must access His heavenly dimension, procure the power, and then go to spiritual war with the enemy spirit. We are to “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness,” which is the heavenly dimension right now, right here on earth.

Christ said to not be concerned about things in the earthly realm, like food and clothing. We rather should be more concerned with the “spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

“We now are spiritual beings sojourning here in earthen vessels, and we have a problem. It concerns the “spiritual forces of evil” from the spiritual dimension. They cross over into our earthly fleshly dimension and attack us. But they can only attack us if we are caught up in earthly dimensional concerns, the “cares of this life,” as the Master said. The Spirit through the apostle Paul calls this looking after the flesh and not after the Spirit.

These evil spirits come from the spiritual dimension. We are adversaries. However, when we are walking in the heavenly dimension, they cannot touch us. We in Christ have power over them because in the heavenly dimension our adversaries are already conquered. When we realize that they are already vanquished by our Head Christ, we begin to see them as a cardboard cavalry, an army that trembles and will flee from us like they did from Gideon’s 300, armed with lamps.

The heavenly dimension is full of light and understanding, which makes known God in all his glory to us. The “glorious gospel of Christ” is that we, once lost and blind earthlings, can repent and believe in the Light and begin to walk in the heavenly dimension, a Kingdom so close to us that He can tap us on the chest to awaken us from meditative slumber.

The Wide Gate Leads to Destruction

God provides an “entrance into the everlasting kingdom” of Christ our King. This happens after we have added the seven attributes of his “divine nature” to our faith (II Peter 1:10-11).

But there are two gates—the narrow one and the wide one. The small and narrow gate leads to life, and “only a few find it” (Mat. 7: 14). The other gate is wide and broad. Many enter through it, but it leads to destruction (Matt. 7:13).

Two gates, two entrances, one choice. The elect are those who will bear 100 fold fruit, who will become like the early apostles. They will enter through the narrow gate. But most professing Christians do not realize that they are trying to enter God’s Kingdom dimension through the wide gate.

The Wide Gate

Two billion souls consider themselves to be Christians. Two billion is not a “few.” They have entered the easy wide gate. Why does this happen? In the next breath, Christ warns us of false prophets. “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves” (v. 15). Paul warns us of these “grievous wolves” (Acts 20:29). Who are they? They are pastors who look like good devout Christians, but they lead their flocks into danger. Christ likens them to voracious wolves. They take money from the congregation, but they do not feed Christ’s sheep and lambs. They teach falsehoods about Christ. And they entice others to follow them through the wide gate.

So, what is the “wide gate” that leads to destruction? The wide gate symbolizes the easy way. It is a wide gate that can accommodate the baggage, bundles, and boxes that each soul is carrying in this life. They teach many erroneous doctrines. A few are addressed here: false doctrines | Immortality Road (wordpress.com).

This baggage is full of false teachings and corrupt doctrines that will not fit through the narrow gate. We are to study to show that we are approved by God to be able to discern both good and evil. To get through the narrow gate, one must lose the false teachings. It is only then that we may enter the heavenly spiritual dimension where the king resides.

The Narrow Gate

Entering the narrow gate is not the easy way. To lay all of your ambitions on the altar is not child’s play. To willingly let your ego, self, and pride die with Christ is entering into His sufferings. No wonder He said that few would enter through the narrow gate that leads to life. Why? Because man’s old nature wants to walk a path of least resistance. He wants an easy life, free from pain and suffering; it’s natural—not spiritual. To suffer for the King Christ is missing in his makeup. The old selfish nature will take the painless and easy-to-follow Christ, where not much is asked of him. Just read a little Bible; come to church; pay your tithes and offerings. [Interesting concept: pay your tithes. Like you owe God money. Giving God money He already owns everything. He “owns the cattle on a thousand hills.” So, He doesn’t want our money. He wants our hearts.

Take the apostle Paul. He was near the pinnacle of the Pharisee [denomination] world. Pharisees were the chief Jewish religionists. Paul was up there with the leaders and high priests. He was so entrenched in their false doctrines that Paul was sent to kill followers of Christ, thinking that he was doing God a great service.

But to be used mightily by God—to get through the narrow gate—he had to get rid of all the false teachings. Paul was struck down on the road to Damascus. The heavenly dimension of which we speak intersected his life. All the baggage that was stuffed with falseness was emptied from his mind and heart when he encountered Christ on that road. Paul was then prepared to enter the heavenly dimension.

The “Sure Foundation”–The True Christ

The sons and daughters of God need a “sure foundation” upon which to build their new spiritual life. They need a foundation that is sure and steady. And, of course, we know that the sure foundation is Christ.

But it must be the true Christ and His vision for the world. For many teach a false Christ based on their imaginations as to who Christ is. And therein lies the problem. Many talk about Christ, but few have met Him at His special meeting place–the cross. Few speak of their own cross experience in their testimony. Their pastor would not dare lead them to the old rugged instrument that puts to death their sinful heart. They teach a soft Christ, a feel-good Christ, a different Christ than what the apostles wrote about in the Scriptures.

Dare I say it? The hireling pastors teach false doctrines about the entity they call Christ. They do not know that this meeting place is where their old sinful lives have perished with Him on the cross. Few want to go there. Few speak of their spiritual death with Christ. Few are buried with Him. But a few “are risen with Him through the faith of the operation of God, who has raised Him from the dead.” (Col. 2:11; Romans 6:1-12).

The apostles and Christ Himself warn us about false Christs in many passages of scripture. They teach a rapture and an escape from the tribulation. They say that they have made an agreement, that they will be spared when disaster strikes. They believe that they will be mystically delivered from the horrors coming upon this world (Isaiah 28:15).

But God calls this “believing a lie.” Instead, the Spirit through Isaiah says, “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed” (verse 16).

And then He slams the lid on those who trusted in the erroneous false doctrine of the rapture: “Your agreement with death [that you will be spared] will be annulled…When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it.” The disaster is likened to what God did at Mount Perazim and at the Valley of Gibeon. He rained down meteorites upon them. And he will do it again through the trumpets and vials of wrath in Revelation (I Chronicles 14:10-11; Joshua 10:10). David and Joshua had Christ as their “sure foundation.”

Now we, like them, are “lively stones,” a part of Him, and He in us. A huge part of Christ’s foundation is having the true knowledge of His purpose and His plan to fulfill it. His purpose is to reproduce Himself, for He is agape Love. And He has a plan to do that. His purpose and plan are sure; nothing can prevent Him from carrying out His plan. Our part is to surrender to Him and learn of His purpose and plan.

The Hidden Wisdom and the Power of God

Immortality Road

It is hiding in plain sight, this great mystery that the apostles and prophets wrote about. It is not in man’s old nature to see and understand what it is, for this hidden wisdom of God entails attributes that are completely opposite of the old nature man is born with.

In fact, when old man Adam glimpses the hidden wisdom in operation in a human’s life, it appears as foolishness. But God has chosen the foolish, weak, base, and despised things on this planet to confound the current powers that be–those humans who think that they in their own strength and position rule their own destinies (I Cor. 1: 25-29).

So just what is this wisdom of God that is hidden from men? What is this secret mystery of God that He withholds from carnal man’s eyes? The answer is in that first letter to the church at Corinth that the apostle Paul wrote. …

The Vision of His Promise Seen through Spiritual Eyes

ChristianBlessings

When God speaks of “vision,” He is talking about seeing what He sees. The vision that God talks about in His word is the ability to see His plan and purpose. It is seeing what He has set in motion, which is prologue to his present and future doings.

Only those who have been “born from above” will be able to “see the Kingdom of God” (John 3:3-5). So, the vision that God speaks of is one being able to see His Kingdom and His government. And after seeing it, entering it (John 3: 3-5).

This government of God will replace all of man’s governments that we have been subjected to. This is the overriding theme of the Bible. Righteousness and justice will be universally attained through Christ’s reign. 1,000 years of peace will ensue under His rule. He will be the Joy of nations and the long-awaited bringer of…

Thump Thump!

I cried when they took him away, even though I knew that little Matty had to go to his home in North Carolina. I had grown so attached to him. I held him close in my arms every day, and we grew to be great friends, even though he was still an infant. As his mother and grandmother loaded up the suitcases and baby effects, my heart was bursting with pain.

I remember our favorite activity. He would lay on my lap with his head on my knees and his legs pointed upward upon my chest, and he would play, “Thump Thump,” with his feet—“Thump Thump Thump Thump” upon my chest.

Matty was nine months old when he left to go to his home. I thought then that we would never be able to play the Thump Thump game again. Boy was I wrong! For, you see, Matty grew very quickly in the years that ticked by. I saw him every year, and he was growing so fast that he was no longer able to lay in my lap and use my chest as a drum. The Thump Thump game became a fading memory. But it was a memory that I still held very dear.

One day when Matty was seven years old, he proved that infants have strong memories. We were in our living room, and I looked at Matty, and he had this gleam in his eye. It was as if a bit of lightning had charged his brain. He walked over to where I was sitting. He stood between my knees and looked me right in the eye.  And then with his hands, he leaned over and went, “Thump Thump,” on my chest, just like he used to do with his feet! He smiled at me, to let me know that he knew that I knew.  

He had proven that infants are intelligent and have excellent memories.

Wisdom—Do We Have It?

If we do not know the secret knowledge held back from most of mankind, then we will not hear nor speak words of that knowledge (Matt. 13:11-17).

If we do not know of the “hidden wisdom” “kept secret from the foundations of the world,” then we will not hear the “word of wisdom,” much less speak the “word of wisdom” (1 Cor. 2:2:7-9). For we cannot properly channel the spiritual gift of Wisdom’s words if we have never been taught them. The very first of the much talked about “gifts of the Spirit” is the “word of wisdom” (1 Cor. 12:8).

Yet, few Christians know what the word “wisdom” means. Few know its scriptural definition. So we consult the concordance, and we find this: “The fear of the LORD, that is wisdom” (Job 28:28). But what does “fear” really mean here? So, we look up “fear” and find that in Hebrew it means “reverential awe.” In other words, “wisdom” is being in reverential awe of Yahweh. You know, the kind of awe of a hundred million galaxies out there, beyond our Milky Way and beyond our wildest imaginations—the kind of awe where you gasp for air, falling onto our knees—it’s that kind of reverence and awe of the One who created it all. That is wisdom.

And it is the foundation upon which the rest of the gifts of the Spirit are laid. “Wisdom is the principal thing. Therefore, get wisdom” (Prov. 4:7). It’s the main thing that we need, in order to grow spiritually. But how do we get wisdom? We simply ask Him for it (James 1:5).

And He will give it to us. That means that He has wisdom. Yes, He has reverential awe of Himself. He used it to create the heavens. “To him that by wisdom made the heavens” (Psm. 136:5). The question for us all is this: Do we fear Him today? Do we have wisdom?

Dream: “I Will Pour My Spirit on All Flesh”

“I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh!” That was the message in the dream. But unlike most dream-plays, I was not the protagonist. Nor was God’s voice speaking to me through another character in the dream. Neither I nor His words remained in subconscious dreamscape, but rather, we were both translated into a loud reverberation, travelling into the real conscious world. Let me explain.

I had been longing to have contact from the Almighty in some way. Or have Him contact me. And as I lay in bed praying, waiting to fall asleep—a year and a half ago now—I asked God, “Please, Father, will You give me a word from You? Would You let me know You are there? Maybe in a dream?”

So, I went on to sleep, and then this voice had found its way into me, and I began to be its vocal cords.  And it resounded in a thunderous blast: “I will pour My Spirit upon all flesh. UPON ALL FLESH!” It seemed that the windows rattled. I was the reed; the Spirit was the breath that vibrated the reed, and the message in His words was the music played through the collective saxophone made from the words of His prophets and apostles down through the ages.

That is when my wife Linda shouted, “Wake up! You’re dreaming!”

And as I began to stir, I knew that the voice had come through my mouth. I did not originate the voice or the words spoken by the voice. The message was not the fruit of my will. I was not aware that I was even there. I then got up; it was three o’clock, and I stumbled over to my desk  and took some notes about the experience. It is only until now that I have been able to begin to wrap my mind around this immediate, profound and specific answer to prayer.

I have tried to make some sense of it but have been hindered by a preconception of just what the “pouring out” entails. The most famous “pouring” is the Upper Room experience, the pouring forth of His Spirit at Pentecost. Peter quotes Joel 2: 28-29 in his famous attribution in Acts 2:16-20. This has impressed many that Joel’s prophecy starts and ends with the Pentecostal outpouring of the Spirit.

Two Outpourings

But herein lies a problem. He said, “all flesh,” but “all flesh” did not have the Upper Room experience. Thousands were in Jerusalem that day, but only a few received the Spirit. Who then received the Spirit? “On My servants and on my handmaidens, I will pour out of my Spirit…” (2:18). That is who received the Spirit in the upper room. Not everybody in Jerusalem, not everyone in the world…

  As we read on in the very next verse, we see another kind of outpouring. Yahweh says, “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD [Yahweh] come” (Joel 2:30-31).

In both prophetic passages, there are two vastly different outpourings. The first section reveals the baptism of the Holy Spirit that will take place during the “time of the end.” The second part of that prophetical flow reveals a pouring out of natural disasters and “acts of God,” a day of gloom and terror (Joel 2: 30- 31). This day of terror is when Yahweh has His angel pour out the vials of wrath. This shows us that both the pouring forth of the Spirit and the pouring out of the vials of wrath happen at basically the same time in history…

[Don’t miss the deep dive into the scriptures next time as the Spirit teaches us what the Voice in the dream meant. If you believe that this article or any of my writings would help someone, share it with someone dear to you. Share it on the internet. Let His light shine. Somebody asked me one time, “What can I do with this truth?” Share it. Use the computer to stir up the people. Have compassion on them. Most won’t listen, but the one that God wants to reach just may read one of these articles. Sow the seed, His words of truth.] Kenneth Wayne Hancock
