The Entry into the Higher Realm of Truth

In times like these, when we as God's people face various challenges, it is essential to be led by the Holy Spirit into a higher realm of truth which is also the power of revelatory truth (cf. John 16:13-15).
John 16:13-15:
“… 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.
15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”
The guidance of the Holy Spirit into the higher realm of truth is like going up on a mountain where the Lord meets us in the form of fatherhood and sonship to have fellowship with us in a higher realm of revelation. This is a level where the Lord communicates to us things that we haven’t heard about or have not yet come into contact with (Isaiah 48:6-7).
Isaiah 48:6-7:
6 You have heard these things; look at them all. Will you not admit them? “From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you.
7 They are created now, and not long ago; you have not heard of them before today. So you cannot say, ‘Yes, I knew of them.’
In this context, the Lord uses the measure of obedience which is our expression of love for Him and His Word (cf. John 14:23).
John 14:23:
23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. …”
The Walk in Obedience and the Abiding on the Mountain
The walk in obedience to the Word of God and His instructions is equivalent to a stay on the mountain, which includes intimate fellowship with God the Father and Jesus Christ, the Son in the Holy Spirit. This quality of spiritual fellowship secures us in the midst of challenging circumstances and keeps us safe in the center of God’s will (cf. Matthew 7:24-25).
Matthew 7:24-25:
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. …”
In all of this, we need to seek our own kind, to walk together on the way up the mountain in order to build ‘a house’ on the rock and become recipients of the mysteries in Christ for this time and season (cf. Proverbs 30:26 i.c.w. Colossians 2:3; Colossians 3:2-4).
Proverbs 30:26:
… 26 hyraxes are creatures of little power, yet they make their home in the crags; …
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.
Colossians 3:2-4:
2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Based on Proverbs 30:26 in connection with Matthew 7:24-25 we can see that the house on the rock includes spiritual fellowship with the Lord and the saints, who have a humble heart and do not rely on their own strength (cf. 2 Corinthians 12:9).
2 Corinthians 12:9:
9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
The Hebrew root word ‘šāṗān’ for ‘hyraxes’, as mentioned in Proverbs 30:26, reveals that the hyraxes is related to the ‘hidden’, since the root word means ‘to conceal – like a treasure’. (Note: Word explanation of the Hebrew word ‘šāṗān’ taken from Strong's concordance with the word key number H8226)
In order to become those recipients of the mysteries in Christ for this time, it is required to be willing to offer sacrifices, which means laying aside the past and the present, in order to enter the time of the future unbiased and completely untouched with firm confidence (cf. Philippians 3:13-14).
Philippians 3:13-14:
13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
The result of this is that decisions are not made on the basis of past experience but with firm confidence in Christ Jesus instead (cf. Hebrews 11:1).
Hebrews 11:1:
1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Willingness to make Sacrifices and the Abiding in the New Day
Our readiness to make sacrifices (Note: died in Jesus Christ, cf. Colossians 3:3) has the consequence that, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we are led into the beginning of the new day (Note: The day begins with the evening; cf. Genesis 1:5b) and into the higher dimension of truth (Note: revelatory truth). This also implies having fellowship with the spiritual aligned saints whom the Lord has assigned to us in order to celebrate in the presence of God, even if it happens in front of the enemies (cf. Genesis 31:45 i.c.w. Psalm 23:5).
Genesis 31:54:
54 He offered a sacrifice there in the hill country and invited his relatives to a meal. After they had eaten, they spent the night there.
Psalm 23:5:
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Here the ‘amount’ of the saints is of special importance. Through their expectation in faith, they create a realm of prophetic vision, so that the leaders within the body of Christ become an ‘open door’. God’s eternal plans for the coming and imminent time can flow into the realm of the prophetic expectation of the saints. Through this revelatory truth in the form of wisdom, there will be prosperity in the midst of the people of God (cf. Proverbs 29:18 I.c.w. 2 Chronicles 20:20c).
Proverbs 29:18:
18 Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction.
2 Chronicles 20:20c:
… 20c Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.”
It is similar to the time of Moses when he went up the mountain with Aaron, Nadab, Abihu and the seventy elders of Israel. By it they entered into the revelatory presence of God to eat and drink together. As a result, they tasted and saw the presence of God in order to transfer it from the spiritual realm to the earthly realm to the people (cf. Exodus 24:4-11 i.c.w. Psalm 34:8).
Exodus 24:4-11:
4 Moses then wrote down everything the Lord had said. He got up early the next morning and built an altar at the foot of the mountain and set up twelve stone pillars representing the twelve tribes of Israel.
5 Then he sent young Israelite men, and they offered burnt offerings and sacrificed young bulls as fellowship offerings to the Lord.
6 Moses took half of the blood and put it in bowls, and the other half he splashed against the altar.
7 Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it to the people. They responded, “We will do everything the Lord has said; we will obey.”
8 Moses then took the blood, sprinkled it on the people and said, “This is the blood of the covenant that the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words.”
9 Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel went up
10 and saw the God of Israel. Under his feet was something like a pavement made of lapis lazuli (note: sapphire), as bright blue as the sky.
11 But God did not raise his hand against these leaders of the Israelites; they saw God, and they ate and drank.
Psalm 34:8:
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
The ‘Four’ and the 70 Elders
The number ‘4’, represented by the presence of Moses, Aaron, Nadab and Abihu is associated in Hebrew with the ‘open tent door’ and the number ‘70’, represented by the seventy elders of Israel, is associated with the ‘eye’ and the ‘deep waters’ of God. These two groups of people share the Hebrew word ‘’ad’ which means ‘eternity, always, continually, until, finally’ and also ‘prey’. Furthermore, it can also refer to the position of a ‘witness’ (hebr.‘’ēd’). (Note: Both words consists of the Hebrew letter ‘Ayin’ and the Hebrew letter ‘Daleth’. It has the numeric value of ‘74’; The explanation of the Hebrew word ‘’ad and ‘’ēd’ is taken from the Elberfelder Study Bible with the word key number 5814, 5815, 5816, 5817, 5818.)
This reveals that the cooperation between the leaders in the body of Christ and the people of God who move in the wisdom of the Lord is of greatest importance. As a result, the living eternal plans of the Lord of which no one has ever heard and seen, such as the prey at the time of Peter when he was hungry on the roof of the house of Simon the Tanner, came down from above in order to receive it from the hands of God (cf. 1 Corinthians 2:9 i.c.w. Acts 10:9-16).
1 Corinthians 2:9:
9 However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” – the things God has prepared for those who love him – …
Acts 10:9-16:
9 About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray.
10 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance.
11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners.
12 It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds.
13 Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.”
14 “Surely not, Lord!” Peter replied. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.”
15 The voice spoke to him a second time, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.”
16 This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven.
It is necessary to let ourselves be led by the Holy Spirit in revelatory truth, in order to enter into a higher realm of truth, which carries the power of God within itself. We need this power in order to continue on our path in a larger overview and higher perspective to be effectively a blessing and orientation for our environment.
Amen and Amen.
In His Wisdom,
