TRUE MINISTRIES CHURCH DOORWAY BETWEEN TWO REALMS To God be the Glory. Where are we going Daddy?

We want to go in the Spirit, don’t we. One of the things we need to have is revelation. Revelation of the mysteries of God. So many times we have heard things over and over—but we just didn’t get revelation off of it. When that revelation comes it changes something in you! There is a light that replaces a deception or confusion—or even an assumption. One of the problems is that many people get revelations but they are not from God. If you have got a revelation and it brings glory to self, it’s not God. If it interrupts God, it’s not God. God doesn’t interrupt himself. So there are revelations that are not revelations from the Lord. They are revelations from darkness that puff up the flesh—and of course blow up the soul. Tonight’s teaching is called Doorway Between Two Realms. How many of you want to walk on both sides? Well you are supposed to. If you don’t want to, you need to! Jesus paid a great price for me and you to walk in both realms. Not heaven and hell. In both realms—the spiritual and natural. GENESIS 1:1, 26-28 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. This is a very profound, awesome statement. God created the heavens and the earth. We know that he created the heavens first— the spiritual hosts and so forth. But he created the earth—meaning the natural arena or the places of matter. Tangible. Amen? In other words, these two realms are actually joined together. The natural realm and the spiritual realm are actually joined together. I will explain it a little more. Go to verse 26. Then God said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. That’s an amazing statement also. He said let us make man in our own image and likeness—man was actually a part of both realms. If you are made in God’s image and likeness you are part of the natural and the spirit. At this period of time both realms were still joined together. Verse 27, So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God what? God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the earth. Now that is powerful! God took and created man—He created a living being in his likeness and image so that there would be a reflection of him not only in the natural realm—because these realms were both united. They were joined together. There was no separation. So God created man in his image and likeness because he created him to be a part of the joined realms. GENESIS 2:18-19 Now we know that the Lord created Adam and he put him in the garden and he gave him some rules and regulations to abide by that would keep him joined with Him. And the LORD God said, It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him. In other words, if he was making something comparable to him—in this arena it was something that he could communicate with. If he was alone—You are not going to create something you can’t

-1-

communicate with, as you would still be alone! Why? Because they were in a joined realm. Now here is something powerful. Verse 19, Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam—He brought them to Adam! God brought the animals to Adam. He did not bring Adam to the animals. And brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. Now that’s communion, isn’t it! Understand something—here is God and Adam—Adam! Hi God. He probably called him Dad because he was his son. Son, how are you doing—I brought you something. Were they able to see each other? Of course they were. Why? Because both realms were joined together. So when God created the animals and he brought them to Adam—Adam said, I’m going to name this one…. Do you think the animals communicated with Adam in some sort of way? Amen they did. Don’t animals communicate with me and you? It’s a little bit difficult at some times. But you are talking about two realms that were joined together. They were able to communicate. Look what the word says will happen in the end, it talks about the viper hanging out. Didn’t the serpent talk to Eve in the garden? If the serpent talked, maybe the other ones talked too! So there was a communion— there was a correspondence. Adam was no longer alone, was he! What did God do? He created animals for Adam and then he brought them to Adam and said, Here. Come on, you name them! What an awesome thing! Both realms were joined together. GENESIS 3:1-8, 17-19 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, [Like I said, the serpent talked to the woman.] “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said—She didn’t say, Adam said. She said, God said. So God communed with Eve, didn’t he. ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’” Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. [So he called God a liar, didn’t he. She didn’t know what lying meant. She didn’t even know what lying was.] For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. There was something wild that the serpent had said, Your eyes are going to be opened. Do you think that he knew that if he could get them to eat the apple, that disobedience would shut and divide the realm? Amen. It would separate the realm. That’s what he was trying to do. He was trying to separate man from God’s presence. Of course when they ate, verse 7, what happened? Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. Now at one time here the Lord brought the animals to Adam and talked to Adam, face to face and he said name the animals and so forth and they communed. The next thing you know, Adam and Eve became disobedient. And their eyes were opened to the natural realm and shut to the Spirit realm —the two realms were divided. Here’s proof of it in verse 8 it says, And they heard [heard the sound of the Lord instead of saw] the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. So we see something happened dramatically. Both realms were divided. Adam and Eve put on a whole other nature. And God could not allow them to stay in that nature. One of God’s purposes was to rejoin both realms. Go to verse 17. How many of you want to

-2-

walk in both realms? Praise God! We are supposed to! Verse 17, Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, [and not me] and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’: “Cursed is the ground for your sake; —Now that sounds kind of strange, cursed is the ground for your sake. In toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return.” Now God cursed the ground for Adam’s sake. So that he didn’t have to be trapped in this realm under satan’s rule— or under his reign. But that death would be the only way of escape from this realm. The realm became divided and satan succeeded in shutting man out of the eternal presence of God. But God had a plan, didn’t he. Hallelujah. That’s why you and I are born with blinders on. We are born with blinders on. We are born into this realm, which is why we must be born again! We are born under the rule of satan. That’s why you and I must be adopted in Christ. That’s why people do things that they don’t know why they do. So many times we have done things in life that we wish we had not done. Right? In this arena that we are talking about, there are two realms, the spiritual realm and the natural realm. The eternal realm and the temporary realm. And satan knew if he could shut that door, he could shut man out of the eternal realm and he could keep him in a temporary state. God cursed the ground and everything in it, the earth, so that man would not have to live tormented under the rule of satan. So death was the only way of escape. So now you and I have to come through this birth canal. It’s amazing that we are born to die. Think about it. Everything that is on the earth now is born to die! Every seed must what? DIE! Everything has got to die! Death is it! Until everything changes. You and I are groaning, waiting for this change. So even God’s creation has been cursed. The ground has been cursed—everything has been cursed. Everything that is brought to life – we think awww…. We are actually just dying. Because once life has been conceived it’s on its way to death. Why? To make the escape from this realm and come into the eternal realm. Do you know how many people hate dying to self? PSALM 24:3-10 Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, who seek Your face. Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! Everlasting doors! What’s he saying? We want to ascend back into your presence!! He was saying you can’t come into the presence the way you are. Something is going to have to happen! But one day these two realms will be rejoined. Who can ascend—who can return to the presence of the Lord but he who has clean hands and a pure heart. And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. What’s he battling for? Your soul. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Hallelujah! We want to return back to his presence. We don’t even realize it. Even when we were in the world, we didn’t realize we were trying to return back to his presence. But the devil would put all kinds of deception in our path because of the two realms that were divided. We tried every door there was to get back into his presence and we couldn’t get through them. Crying out daily in some areas. Not even knowing sometimes why we were groaning and

-3-

hurting. But there was something in us always telling us there is something better than this. Something better. Something I was supposed to do. Even when we were angry with God and we blamed God. That was our mind but in our heart and in our spirit—I know there is a God. I know there is another place. No matter what we were going through. GENESIS 14:14-24 Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken [who was Lot] captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained servants who were born in his own house, and went in pursuit as far as Dan. He divided his forces against them by night, and he and his servants attacked them and pursued them as far as Hobah, which is north of Damascus. So he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his brother Lot and his goods, as well as the women and the people. So he went and rescued him, defeated the enemy and took all their spoil. He brought them back and brought his nephew back. And the king of Sodom went out to meet him at the Valley of Shaveh (that is, the King’s Valley), after his return from the defeat of Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him. Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. This is powerful—something profound was happening here. God was bringing forth bread and wine. What was he doing? He was preparing to return his presence. This was all in preparation. Now look what happened. And he blessed him and said: “Blessed be Abram of God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand.” And he gave him a tithe of all. Now the king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the persons, and take the goods for yourself.” But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand to the LORD, God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth, that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that is yours, lest you should say, ‘I have made Abram rich’— except only what the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me: Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.” The bread and wine were symbolic of Christ to come. The word says that he who eats of my flesh and drinks of my blood shall have what? Eternal or everlasting life. God was preparing to bring the door back in so that the two realms could be joined. You are going to find out if you go to Hebrews 7, that Melchizedek was God. So the Lord himself came as high priest, didn’t he. And he made covenant with Abram and he gave him promises. He had communion with him. And Abram gave him a tithe! In other words that was representing a price that had to be paid. So he gave him a tithe. And that price is still given, isn’t it. HEBREWS 7:1-6 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated “king of righteousness,” and then also king of Salem, meaning “king of peace,” without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, remains a priest continually. Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils. And indeed those who are of the sons of Levi, who receive the priesthood, have a commandment to receive tithes from the people according to the law, that is, from their brethren, though they have come from the loins of Abraham; but he whose genealogy is not derived from them received tithes from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises. So understand this Melchizedek was God himself as high priest coming and making reconciliation. Remember the Lord, even though he

-4-

removed Adam and Eve from the garden, he still restored to them covenant through the blood. Through the sacrificial killing of an animal, putting skin on them, which represented be fruitful and multiply. Then what did God do—he killed all mankind and so forth and everything was restored again. Abraham being called the father of righteousness and his seed—the righteous seed that was going to go forth—which was going to go forth carrying the righteousness of God. This was also establishing covenant between God Almighty and mankind. Remember the Old Testament is a shadow of things to come. Jesus said, I am the Way, Truth and Life. The Old Testament is a representation of the Way. He was preparing the way. For what? The truth to come. So that we could have what? Life. JOHN 1:1-5; 14-18 There was something very awesome that Jesus said—he said, I don’t see anything unless I see my Father do it too. You know why? He walked in both sides. He was the joiner of both sides. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. Go to verse 14. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’” And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him. Understand something, if the word became flesh and dwelt among us, it was a representation of the door coming in. Now the door has just entered. In other words, the tangible door, the tangible presence of God. See God had to become man to reunite the natural with the spiritual. He had to become flesh. He had to become man to walk on this side, didn’t he. The word always confirms itself. That’s why it’s precept upon precept and line upon line. So as Melchizedek came here, it was a representation that God was coming again to reconcile all things. So the doorway to the eternal realm had just become tangible. The doorway to the eternal realm had just become tangible!! Right into the natural realm. JOHN 14:1-6 Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.” Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. What was he saying? I am the door! No one can get to this mansion—No one can come to my Father except through me. The door had become tangible to all mankind. In the expression of Jesus saying I am the way, truth and life, those were the three doorways in the tabernacle. Those are the three doors. When Jesus said I am the way, truth and life, those are the three chambers in the tabernacle that they had to go through. There was a process, a ritual— they went through the washing and so forth. They went through the sacrifice of the animal, the

-5-

washing of the blood and then they went into the next chamber. The first chamber is the outer court. The next chamber was known as the Holy Place. The third chamber was known as the Holy of Holies. These were doors that you had to go through before—The high priest was the only one that could do it once a year—went into the Holy of Holies to commune with God. EXODUS12:1-13 Now the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household. And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbor next to his house take it according to the number of the persons; according to each man’s need you shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats. Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight. And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it. So they are putting it on the door. They are putting blood on the lintels of the doors. Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire—its head with its legs and its entrails. You shall let none of it remain until morning, and what remains of it until morning you shall burn with fire. And thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. So you shall eat it in haste. It is the LORD’s Passover. ‘For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD. Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. Even Jesus’ sacrifice was a representation of protecting the blood— protecting the door. From what? From any evil. The blood was protecting the door. In other words, no one was able to come at this door. You had to go through the blood. No evil could go through that door—that represented the eternal realm. Why? Because we were trapped in this temporary realm and now there was only one way to get to the other realm and that was through the door but it had to have blood. There had to be blood on there so that you could go back into the eternal realm and walk in it. When I had my encounter with the Lord, after the cloud lifted from me and I sat up and began to talk with the Lord, it was very interesting because it was like the natural realm opened up. It split like a curtain. It split open and the Lord was gone and then it went right back. It was like Stargate. It was like all of a sudden the natural realm just opened up. Almost like a curtain stretched out. He was gone and it shut right up! You almost wanted to touch the other side and it was right there. Man, I didn’t want to stay here. I didn’t want to stay here at all. I wanted to go home! When I had a taste of home—it was like—forget this place! Wife, kids and everything—see ya! It didn’t matter to me—Hallelujah. Just take me home Daddy! That’s what is right here. That other realm is right here and God wants us to walk in both sides. He desires us to walk in both sides. That’s why the bible tells us that the God of this age blinds us. And those who are perishing—why? Because they don’t believe in the truth, the gospel. But when one turns to the Lord, the scales come off! And who is the Lord? The Holy Spirit. Amen. The

-6-

Holy Spirit. That’s why it’s so important about being baptized in the Holy Ghost. Because those scales come off and you can walk in both arenas. Without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit it is difficult to walk in both arenas. What happens is that people walk by what they read and they don’t walk by fellowship. That’s what separates religion from relationship. Remember God had a relationship with Adam in the garden. The devil succeeded in breaking that relationship with the presence of God, didn’t he. He separated both realms. But Jesus came back and said, Listen, I’m the door, man! Here it is—I’m the way, truth and life. The Jews understood what was being said and they hated him for that! Because they knew he was claiming himself as God. They hated him! He claimed himself to be the tabernacle! He claimed himself to be the eternal door —to mankind so that man would have access to the eternal realm. They hated him for that. They were willing to do everything they could—remember that satan succeeded the one time in separating the two realms and shutting that door of fellowship. Jesus came to what? Reconcile. That’s what salvation is about, isn’t it. Salvaging something. MATTHEW 27:45-53 Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. In other words, it was twilight. Can you imagine here it is 2:00 o’clock in the afternoon and all of a sudden it got dark—boom! Remember the Lord said and sacrifice that Lamb at twilight. All of a sudden it became dark. Why? Because he was the sacrificial lamb, wasn’t he. The door was about to open. The blood had to be shed—because he said, I am the door! The blood had to be shed on the door so others could have access to the other side. That’s why he was known as the Passover. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Why? Because he took on all the sins of man. Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, “This Man is calling for Elijah!” Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink. The rest said, “Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him.” And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. Then, behold, the veil of the temple—Which separated the Holy of Holies from the Holy Place and the rest of the world it says it what? Was torn in two from top to bottom—In other words, the door—God said, I’m coming! Understand this—even with Melchizedek, God came, didn’t he. His whole purpose was a preparation so that man could be reconciled to God. When God came as a door through Jesus Christ and the blood was shed (now no evil can come in), that veil was ripped in the Holy of Holies—that door was opened! That eternal door was opened!! God was allowing man to have fellowship with him. Something I always share with people is that God had to first forgive us before he could grant forgiveness. He first had to forgive us! Before he could grant forgiveness because of what happened. In verse 51, Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened—Now that was a sure sign of another realm—if the graves are opened— that means here it is! The door is opened! What do graves represent? The temporary realm! It was just opened—opened for the eternal realm. The graves were opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised—The graves were opened and you are seeing all of these dead bodies. They didn’t get up and walk around yet. Just the graves were opened. And many of the saints, the bodies, were brought up to the surface. Remember there were earthquakes and these earthquakes shimmied up some of these coffins or whatever—or broke open some of these walls because most of them were put in tombs and stuff like that. Some of these things were opened up. Tombs were busted—all of a sudden there were dead bodies all

-7-

over the place—all of the saints. Now these are the ones that accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior during his ministry. They were a representation of the first fruits. These were not of the old. The graves were opened to the saints. This was a representation of those who accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who believed in Him—their graves were opened up. So they laid out there, those who had fallen asleep were raised and coming out of the graves—When? After His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many. Now can you imagine that? When the Lord hit that ground—when his spirit hit that earth—when that door opened and that veil ripped—the eternal realm was opened up to all mankind. It was first opened up to all of them that accepted Him. They had to become alive! Because eternity was just granted to them. Jesus was the doorway between two realms!! There is so much—we read certain things, Jesus was the door. Yeah. Jesus is the way, truth and life. Yeah. But there are so many deep riches if we just allow the Spirit to bring us there. So many deep riches. The other realm is right here. The word says God is less than a breath away. The other realm – is right here. And you and I have the ability and the authority to walk in both realms. JOHN 10:1-11 When you really get the revelation of this and the understanding, you will understand why the apostles could care less about whether they died or not. Their only purpose was to bring people to the door. The word tells us that the cares of this world choke the seed. Remember the parable about the wedding—and the invitations went out for everyone to come to this wedding. The door. And many of them refused the invitation because of what? Businesses. Families. I’m too busy. Money. Lusting/desires. They were too busy. That’s still going on today, you know. “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them. Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. But there is someone that is going to prevent you from getting there. He’s called the thief. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.” So we see here that Jesus is expressing himself—I am the door. I am the way. I am the truth. I am the doorway to both realms! I JOHN 5:6This is He who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one. So if the Son, the word that became flesh, came into the natural realm, did they all

-8-

come? Yes. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son. So what makes the connection between the Spirit realm and the natural realm? The Holy Spirit. That’s why Jesus said, It is to your advantage that I leave. Amen? He will guide you to all truth. Where’s he going to guide you? To the door, man! He’s going to guide you to everything of truth. It is to our advantage that he left. The Holy Spirit is the connector between the Spirit realm and the natural realm. That’s why you see the difference between religion and relationship. Now does that mean that those who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior can’t go home? No. But there is a difference between walking right—because the word tells us that no evil can enter that realm. And those who practice such things as fornication, lying and cheating and so forth—they cannot enter the kingdom of God. Why? Because that blood that is still over the lentils of the door, no evil can come in. That door is protected by the blood of the Lamb. And no one, except those washed by the blood, can enter through that door. GENESIS 4:1-7 Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, “I have acquired a man from the LORD.” Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the LORD. Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the LORD respected Abel and his offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell. Now one of the reasons why he didn’t respect it because God had already showed Adam and Eve what was acceptable. Because he killed an animal in the garden, didn’t he. These were the things that pleased God. One chose to please him and one chose to please him out of his own works. So the LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? In other words, if you change your way, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. Where is it lying? At the door!!! Why? Because that’s what is going to prevent you from getting to the other side. And its desire is for you—Just like that same desire was for Adam and Eve which trapped man in a temporary realm. And the only way out was death. But what? Sin lies at the door and its desire is for you but you should rule over it. You should rule over it. So we’ve got no excuse. MATTHEW 25:1-13 Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now a virgin is one that has been washed by the blood. Now five of them were wise, and five were [boneheads] foolish. Those who were foolish [or boneheads] took their lamps and took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying—Get your own man! Repent and be baptized in the Holy Ghost! But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. That’s going to happen some day! That’s why it’s called the age of grace or the

dispensation of grace—that door will shut. And in some people’s lives that door has shut. The day you die, that door is either open or shut. Remember when you die, who you serve is where you go. “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. Or the day or the hour that you are called home. So we want to be wise virgins! ROMANS 8:18-23 So are those two realms still divided? Yes, they are still divided. But Jesus has made the way for us to come out from the natural realm into the eternal realm. That’s why he is the doorway between two realms. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. Now understand something If creation is eagerly waiting for the sons of God it’s because creation is waiting to be reunited—the two realms—they are wanting to be reunited. They are waiting for direction. They are waiting for the sons of God to be revealed because they are going to know that the two realms are going to join back together. Verse 20, For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. That’s its original state. Free! For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. Why? Because that eternal body—you and I desire that body because it matches our true home in eternity. Even though we are in this realm, we are groaning. We groan! Not to be unclothed but to be more clothed with the glory of God. We are groaning for our glorified body because we so desire to be reunited with our natural state of the eternal realm. 2 CORINTHIANS 5:1-9 For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. Why? Because the Spirit is what makes the connection between the Spirit realm and the natural realm. The Holy Spirit allows you to walk in your true habitation and your temporary habitation. Through Christ who is the door. He is the doorway to both realms. So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.

2 PETER 3:10-13 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. So this is all going to go away. Why? Because they are going to be reunited. Where righteousness dwells again. 2 CORINTHIANS 4:3-4, 16-18 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing [or decaying], whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. Verse 16, Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction—It’s just a light affliction. Regardless of what you are going through, it’s still a light affliction. What’s the worst that can happen to you? You can die and go home! Isn’t that a way of escape. Do you know how many people consider suicide because they think it is the only way of escape. They even know it, don’t they. I even tried to commit suicide. That was my only way of escape from the torment of demonization. I didn’t know anything else. I didn’t know God could deliver me. The only thing that came to me was, kill yourself. I began to agree with that voice of the stranger. Because it was my way of escape. Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, [even though it may seem forever] is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory—You may not understand or figure out why you are going through what you are going through, but it is working for you! If you let it. Many people run from it and don’t let God deal with them. God wants to use me and you as one of his doors. He wants to use us to be his door. There has to be a key to that door, right. You are going to be the key. That’s why he gave you two keys—bind and loose. Right? While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. REVELATION 4:1-11 After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here—Come up here!! Come up here, man—I paid the price for you. It’s time for you to come home! Come up here and I will show you things which must take place after this.” Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads. And from the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices. Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. That’s your home! That’s Dad’s home! Your Daddy’s got a place that’s awesome! Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second

living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle. The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: “ Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” God had his own band right there—called the living creatures! Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: “ You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” REVELATION 3:20-22 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. You are the church. Jesus is the doorway between both realms. Every one of us has a choice as to what side we choose to walk in. Remember the devil is always going to try and prevent you from getting through that door. He is going to try and hit you with lust of the flesh, lust of the eye and pride of life. Those are the three main categories he is going to hit you with. He knows exactly how to get us and prevent us from getting in there. Remember—walk in the Spirit and you walk in both sides. Only in the Spirit are both realms joined together. Not to anyone else but only to you. Both realms are only joined together for you. Not for anyone else. Only you. Through the blood and through the Spirit. ****
