The Power of the Sacrifice of Jesus in Times of Ascension

11.06.2020, Daniel Glimm

When disciples of Jesus come to a level of maturity in their spiritual process and training of the Holy Spirit in God’s truth, it is inevitable that the Lord calls them into a higher spiritual dimension in order to apply what was learned there. The result of the teaching of the Holy Spirit is that believers get to understand the spiritual things that the Holy Spirit reveals.

The heavenly realm is the dimension from which God expects us to mature in Christ Jesus and also to remain there (see Ephesians 2:4-6 i.c.w. Colossians 3:1-2).

Ephesians 2:4-6:
4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved.
6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, …

Colossians 3:1-2:
1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

The Entry into the Light of God

Entry into the new spiritual dimension requires complete surrender to the will of the Heavenly Father, which involves letting go and getting rid of one's own ideas and needs (see Matthew 16:24).

Matthew 16:24:
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.

The more we enter the dimension of God's realms, the more we enter into His light, so that we are able to grasp the revelatory truth that God has in store for us, so that we walk in it here on earth as the origin of eternal life (see Psalm 36:9 i.c.w. 1 John 1:5).
Psalm 36:9:
9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
1 John 1:5:
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
The Importance of Jesus' Sacrifice and the Source of Eternal Life

Since Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, is the way into the dimension of the Father, and since one only enters this realm through the recognition of His sacrifice, we too must live in the sacrifice of Jesus in order to partake in the source of eternal life here on earth (see John 3:16; 1 John 4:15; John 12:25-26).

John 3:16:
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

1 John 4:15:
15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God.

John 12:25-26:
25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.

This eternal life source carries the name of the Heavenly Father, who is the God of Israel and bears the name JHWH – יהוה, which consists of four Hebrew letters (note: Yod, Heh, Vav, Heh).
I therefore don't consider it any coincidence that a stream consisting of four rivers springs from Eden, Paradise. This shows clearly that the four rivers have their origin in God and reveal His longing to give us access to the hidden treasures of His Son Christ Jesus (see Genesis 2:10-14 i.c.w. Colossians 2:2-3).
Genesis 2:10-14:
10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters.
11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin and onyx are also there.)
13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush.
14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Ashur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
Colossians 2:2-3:
2 My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ,
3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Access to the Hidden Treasures in Christ

As already mentioned, we can only gain access to the hidden treasures in Christ if we have truly laid down our lives in His sacrificial death on the cross to live Him (see Galatians 2:20).

Galatians 2:20:
20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

If we remain with an honest heart in the triumph of Jesus Christ on the cross, we will increase day by day in His wisdom and knowledge. This will lead to the fact that, where we recognize the antichrist approaches (note: resistance against the plan of God) in our lives, we tear them down and judge them by the triumph of Jesus Christ (see 2 Corinthians 10:3-6).

2 Corinthians 10:3-6:
3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.
4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
6 And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.

The Judgment of the Antichrist Structure

It is also no coincidence that Jesus was attached to the cross by the Roman occupiers with three nails related to the number 666. (note: The nail is associated with the Hebrew letter “Vav”, which has the numerical value of “6” and pictographically symbolizes a nail).

It may sound paradoxical, but the erected cross with the three nails had been used for Jesus to hang in the air where the adversary reigns for the only purpose of judging his plans and his antichrist structure (see Ephesians 2:2 i.c.w. Galatians 3:13).

Ephesians 2:2:
… 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.

Galatians 3:13:
13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” (see Deuteronomy 21:23)

The realm of the air is the realm of thoughts, where we make decisions whether we cultivate the thoughts of God or those of the adversary.

By Jesus' complete surrender and submission to the will of His Heavenly Father, through His sacrificial death on the cross, He has judged the antichrist system or trinity of darkness (note: in the form of an evil triangle => Satan, the false prophet, the beast; see Revelation 20:10) => two nails in the hands of Jesus and one nail in the feet of Jesus).
Where the adversary had assumed that the final victory would be achieved by his antichrist plan, it led to that his resistive plan has been destroyed by the work of Jesus Christ, the perfect Son of God. The three nails opened the way for the four wounds of the Son of God, who is the door into the completeness of the Father (note: 3 nails + 4 wounds = 7 => fulfillment of the Word of God; see Matthew 5:17; John 14:6 i.c.w. Hebrews 12:2).
Matthew 5:17:
17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
John 14:6:
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Hebrews 12:2:
2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
The revelatory truth concerning the number “7” can be found in the numerical values, which are the Hebrew letters “Gimel”, “Daleth”, “Zayin”.
The numerical value of “3” is linked to the Hebrew letter “Gimel”, which has the pictographic depiction of a camel connected with the right of access into the Kingdom of God (see Matthew 19:24).
Matthew 19:24:
24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
The Hebrew letter of “Daleth” is associated with the numerical value of “4” and has the pictographic illustration of an “open door” (see John 10:9).
John 10:9:
9 I (note: Jesus Christ) am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.1 They will come in and go out, and find pasture.
The numerical value of “7” is related to the Hebrew letter “Zayin” which, among other things, symbolizes a crowned sword and thus refers to the living Word of God (see Hebrews 4:12 i.c.w. Revelation 19:13).
Hebrews 4:12:
12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Revelation 19:13:
13 He (note: Jesus Christ) is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.
The Entry into the Light of God and its Result
If we, as believers in Christ, want to enter deeper into the light of God, it is essential that we let the Holy Spirit reveal to us false thought patterns that have to be judged in Jesus' sacrificial death, in order for us to be authorized to enter the higher dimension of God and to mature spiritually by doing so. Therefore, the Lamb that was looking like it had been slain is standing before the throne of God (see Revelation 5:6).
Revelation 5:6:
6 Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
Entering into the higher dimension of God is spiritual development of those believers who set their hearts truly in God’s love and therein grow towards Christ who is the head (see Ephesians 4:15).
Ephesians 4:15:
15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
Accordingly, a daily focus on the Holy Spirit is the best foundation for reaching our destiny and the next dimension higher than the previous one.
Amen and Amen.
In His Wisdom,
