Then He said, “I tell you the truth, you will all see Heaven open and the angels of God going up and down on the Son of Man, the one who is the stairway between Heaven and earth” (John 1:51).
The Lord had said to Abram in Genesis 12:1-4, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” So Abram went, as the Lord had told him.
Answering the Call
Is He calling you? Are you feeling a tug on your heart to do something more?
I believe that the Lord has shown me that there are many who are learning to build it with their own hands, whatever “it” may be. There are laborers, there are architects, there are plans being put in place, as the visionaries speak of the visions He is giving them. He is calling us to a place of renewal: new beginnings, new thinking, and in some cases, new land. It is a removal of the old things; a cleansing; a renovation process that must take place. In my life, it’s been a purging of sorts.
1. To free (someone) of an unwanted feeling, memory, or condition, typically giving a sense of cathartic release.
Synonyms: cleanse, clear, purify, wash, shrive, absolve, remove, get rid of, expel, eject, exclude, dismiss, sack, oust, eradicate, clear out, weed out, removal, expulsion, ejection, exclusion, eviction, dismissal, sacking, ousting and eradication.
2. To physically remove (something), completely.
Matthew 18:3 states, “And He said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven.’”
To be transformed into His image from one degree of glory to another should be our hope and prayer. We are His precious children; let us come together in faith, like little children. Let us not be so focused on our earthly life that we forget the life He has set before us, and for all eternity. Jesus makes it possible for us to know our Heavenly Father, and to have this glimpse into the heavenly places.
Let us continue to walk in the light of His Word, shedding light into the lives of others.
