Using your spiritual zoom lenses   2 comments

Our lives are often cyclic or seasonal. There are times when it is natural and easy to enter into the presence of God, and there are other times when it is not. This can be influenced by outside circumstances, internal turmoil, or any number of different things. That’s one of the great things about Heaven. There is no sin there to hinder the flow of the Holy Spirit. There is no enemy to withstand us. But here in this realm … ah yes, here we must often press through in order to get there.

Recently I encountered one of those times, and the Lord reminded me of my own teachings. He invited me to remember, or even to imagine, being with Him in a very beautiful place. I closed my eyes and began to build a picture of us together. We were in a garden, and I could see Him putting His arm around me and drawing me close to Him. I was viewing this from a distance, watching the scene unfold.

Then Jesus encouraged me to use my zoom lenses, the spiritual ones He has equipped us with. Suddenly, I had stepped into the picture and was viewing it from there in His arms! I could see the weave of the threads in the fine linen garment He was wearing. I could see His beard and the pores in His skin. I could smell His fragrance. Tears ran down my face as His presence now flooded my heart and overflowed into the earth realm.

“This is real”, He smiled. “More real than the earth realm. And I am always available to you, My love.”

I have taught this many times. But it’s always worth repeating.  If you will just imagine that He is right there with you, one day you will realize it’s not just your imagination.  It is reality.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful visitations you received from Jesus.. how much love He has for each one of us.. even we who are totally undeserving. I’m praying that I will allow the Holy Spirit to refine and chisel me, so that I can also be changed from “glory to glory” and truly bear His name and character.

    • As we behold Him and gaze on His beauty, we are changed into the same image, from glory to glory. 2 Cor. 3:18 As Rick Joyner has often said, “We don’t have to get good enough to go there. We get ‘good enough’ BY going there! Blessings on your journey. 🙂
