The modus operandi ( mode of operation ) of Christians and in Christianity 101 we learn that FAITH is the core of our belief.
As for the most part, no one has seen Jesus or God face to face, but by Faith, we believe. As a result, we are blessed. John 20:29 (AMP) ..Blessed [happy, spiritually secure and favored by God] are they who did not see [Me] and yet believed [in Me].
Faith is also to protect us, by feeding on the Word and enabling the Word dwell in us.
The enemy has control of this physical realm and can block things in the natural realm from manifesting, as he was cast out of Heaven to this realm with his powers.
Now if a child of God, operates in this physical realm then, such person would be played by the enemy. kind of similar to politics, they block policies and laws from being passed if you are not from the same political party, even if it’s for the benefit of the people that put them in office. ( Which I believe is unethical)
Therefore we have no choice but to live by faith, as faith is on a higher level and realm. Living by faith is living in the spirit. We do not look at things that are seen with our physical eyes but in seen with our spiritual eyes.
All the answers to our inherent problems and waiting for us, in the spirit. As a Christian we have a dual location, – we are sitting in Christ who is at the right hand of the Father in Heaven, and we also have our physical body here on earth.
It’s fair to say even if we do not spend most of our time in our Heavenly location; we should a least split the time into two and spend half of our daily time there.
We can only obtain victory when we consciously live in the spirit, in this natural realm, the enemy can control what happens. Therefore we have to go higher to the place that the enemy and its demons were kicked out.
The Bible says that before the foundation of the earth, everything has been given to us all we need to live a godly life, everything that we need, for our assignment, provisions, to stop hurricanes, etc.
However, we have to realize that we have access to dual locations for a reason, cause all we need is in the heavenly place, so we have to spend time there, to bring it down here.
Whatever it is, that has a name is waiting in the heavenly location. In real estate, they say location, location, location, as this determines how much profit or returns from transactions in property.
Like wise, in the answers to solutions, can only be obtained when we are spiritual located, (right location is key) as Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen in this physical / natural realm.
How they can be seen, and the proof we have of them is in Christ, at the right hand of God in Heaven, so I guess we have to pay Heaven visits more frequently, by living in the spirit.
Finally, could it be the religious denominations are stopping Christians from spending more time in our heavenly residence?
Let me explain, if you go to a Charismatic, or Pentecostal Church, it is normal that you would hear them say, if you want to be baptized in the Holy Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongues come forward, and they will pray for you, etc.
Or they might ask if you speak in tongues raise your hand etc., however, in some other denominations this is not heard of, and if the word tongues are even mentioned, you could be labeled.
The reason I say this is because, Jesus our Lord, the Bible says often prayed all night, in my opinion, there is no way a person can pray in a natural language all night we would just be repeating the same thing over and over, which Jesus Himself called vain repetition.
Therefore I believe, He must have prayed in tongues, and that’s why He said He would give us a new tongue also.
The most efficient way to be in the presence of God and pray the way Jesus and the Apostles prayed is praying in tongues. A lot of things are about to shake the world at the moment, from Hurricanes, North Korea, it’s time to wake up.
Until next time, Keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
