As you set out in search of your Heavenly Father, you will require some tools for your journey. Without the proper equipment you can never succeed. This necessitates a stop at the exploration office of Jesus Christ.
When you meet Jesus Christ you will be given a map and a compass. All truth is in Jesus, embodied and personified in Him. Ephesians 4:21 (Amplified). The map shows the path that Jesus walked, and the compass is the Spirit of Truth. Jesus revealed the way to the treasures of God. If you want them, you need only follow his steps. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Like a compass, the Holy Spirit is your guide on this trek. He will call every turn and carefully lead you into the secrets of God. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth.He will also be your constant traveling companion, and describe your final destination so that you will know what you are looking for. Where there is no vision, the people perish. These are the tools of spiritual discovery and victory. With these you can find and acquire the celestial treasures of God. God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
As you begin your trek the Holy Spirit will guide you wittingly around the pitfalls, and out of the Adamic danger zone. First he will lead you out from sin, revealing the folly of its pursuit. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings. Then he will guide you past the waiting snares of earthly glitter. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Soon you will emerge from the dark polluted city of Adamic bondage, into a beautiful countryside, a virgin landscape of rolling green. Cool and fresh the air will be, a colleague to the bright sunlight that warms you.
As you leave the ramparts of carnality behind, the Holy Spirit will begin to expound on the deeper mysteries of God. The Bible will give up its secrets and explode with new life. There, apart from the crowds, as you walk alone with these friends, you will hear the unspeakable words of God himself. And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
As you survey your surroundings, you won’t see many people. Because at this time, God is not dealing with the masses. The men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves.
Then you will find you have entered a new spiritual land, called the ekklesia . Ekklesia is the Greek word that was translated “church.” But it really means, “the called out, or called forth.”
A church is not a building, or a place, or a set of doctrines- it is a person. The ekklesia are those people who are called out of this world’s systems. Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? They are called out of Adamic corruption; they wish no longer to live by the rules of mortals. Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. Lastly, they are called out from the monstrosity of Organized Religion. Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
These brave few will depart the deception of the masses to walk in personal communion with their Heavenly Father. The general assembly and church (ekklesia) of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, … the spirits of just men made perfect. They will leave their earthly desires behind, while setting out to find the life and secrets of God. To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church (ekklesia) the manifold wisdom of God.
In the stirring freedom of this new environment your spirit will soar to maturity. Unhampered by the shackles of flesh and the dogmas of religion, you will grow strong and wise. In the presence of God you will see truths that are veiled to mortals. You will learn things that you never dreamed. Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God. Your understanding will reach out to embrace what seemed previously impossible. I shall shew you plainly of the Father. Joyous, your spirit will blossom and revel in the awesome plan of God. Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see.
Many adventures await you in this new land and many hardships. But through them all your Father will be there, comforting, consoling, and personally instructing. To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna. And every inch that you explore in this new spirit realm, is yours for a permanent possession. The secret of the sweet, satisfying companionship of the Lord have they who fear, revere and worship Him, and He will show them His covenant, and reveal to them its deep, inner meaning. Psalm 25:14 (Amplified).
If you will turn aside from evil and seek God with your whole heart, you shall surely find him- that is his promise. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. When you come to desire spiritual understanding more than your earthly life, he will answer. There is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets. God is far more eager to tell his secrets, than you are to hear. Thus he winnows mankind, seeking some who will listen. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
All the secrets of God will be given to those uncommon few, who leave off the flesh and trust him in a land forbidden to mortals. I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them. There, in terrifying circumstances he awaits you, to confer a king’s wealth. Whether by trial or blessing, he tarries to transfer to you the treasures of immortal beings. He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
Everything God has, he will give you. All that he is, he will convey. Beyond the dreams of the human heart, he delights to lead on, to share his character, his wisdom, and his glory, with the courageous and bold, who love him alone. I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
