Living in Prophetic Consciousness 4

I have been sharing about prophetic consciousness and the importance for the Bride to ascend into a higher state of glory so that she is able to fulfil her mandate upon the earth. This is the ascension of the Bride and we must go there, in full awareness, a bridal perspective, a prophetic consciousness. As we have learnt previously, we are in Christ in the unseen realm, as truly as He is in us in the seen realm. This means that through our relationship with Jesus, there is a doorway connecting heaven and earth together through us. The challenge is that we are not conscious of this in our minds, or at least not in our natural mind. However, the renewed mind, the mind of our spirit, has no need to learn this truth, because it is already a spiritual mind, already in the heavens, it does not need to arrive somewhere, it knows from the outset who it is and where it is. Is it not true, that when we take the time to be still and alone with the Lord, when we calm our thoughts and silence our minds, that we then become conscious of being in the presence of God? This is the mind of our spirit being energised because we are in His presence.

Listen to what Paul writes to the Corinthians “But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.” 1 Cor 6:17 This is a profound statement that needs to be understood more fully. There is a union of spirit that takes place when we are “joined to the Lord”. Our spirit and His Spirit become “one”. This is a profound mystery, but is part of the glory of “Oneness”, the same glory that Jesus declared when He said “I and My Father are one” John 10:30, is the same glory that Jesus has given to us “that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one” John 17:21,22 I believe this glory enables two or more distinct personalities to be joined in such a way that they become one, it is the glory of the Trinity, and this enabling is what we are able to experience, not only by being “one spirit with the Lord”, but also oneness with each other as the bride. This is another teaching so I won’t go further on that point, but what I am focussed on saying here is that there is a “oneness” which exists between our spirit and the Holy Spirit, and therefore since we are “one” in spirit, our minds are also joined together in some way through this union.

By being “one spirit with him” we are able to discern the very thoughts of God. I will close today with Paul’s words in 1 Cor 2:6-16

6Now we do speak wisdom among the mature, but wisdom not of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are perishing,

7but we speak the hidden wisdom of God in a mystery, which God predestined before the ages for our glory,

8which none of the rulers of this age knew. For if they had known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

9But just as it is written, “[Things] which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and have not entered into the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love him.”

10For to us God has revealed [them] through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all [things], even the depths of God.

11For who among men knows the things of a man, except the spirit of the man that [is] in him? Thus also no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

12Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who [is] from God, in order that we may know the things freely given to us by God,

13[things] which we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in [words] taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual [things] to spiritual [people].

14But the natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he is not able to understand [them], because they are spiritually discerned.

15Now the spiritual [person] discerns all [things], but he himself is judged by no one.

16“For who has known the mind of the Lord; who has advised him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

Heavenly Father, we earnestly seek your face to be still and know that You are God. We thank you deeply for the love you have shown us through your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ

Beloved Jesus, we cast off our old natures, and put on the new. Created in your image and perfection, we come in adoration and longing to the Bridal Chamber to abide in you and you in us.

Holy Spirit, breathe on us again and again. May we grow with ever increasing awareness of your presence in us, and illuminate our minds into higher realms, that we discern all that God has prepared for us. Amen
