I had a short Vision. Visions can last a matter of just seconds or minutes, yet The Holy Spirit can show us so much.
I was walking through a Door. When it shut behind me, suddenly all the noise and chaos from the outside stopped.
Suddenly I was engulfed in Perfect Peace. Then there were stairs I started climbing. Higher and higher I climbed and I saw many rooms on different levels and they were shining, all in gold and amber. It was the Father’s House.
Hebrews 12:2 tells us to “FIX” our eyes upon Jesus, to see the One who is enthroned in the Heavens, to see Him in all of His Glory — and to know that you are seated beside the Father in all His Majesty IN Christ Jesus.
The phrase, “I LIFT MY EYES TO YOU” doesn’t just mean to look up at Jesus, but the Hebrew meaning is so much more!
It means, “to take away, to carry, to support, to rise up, to be born, to be swept away!”
Wow! Whenever you read, “I lift my eyes…” think on Him.
Fix your eyes upon Jesus when you feel discouraged and fearful. When you look to Jesus, know that Abba Father is lifting you up, taking you away into His Presence in a special way.
Your faith in Jesus is ALWAYS rewarded. He sweeps you away for a Divine Encounter with Him!
“Let not your heart be troubled. Come to The Father’s House and close the Door behind you!
Beloved, leave all of your baggage behind. The noise and the chaos of the world will grow strangely dim.
Close the Door behind you completely, and do not let your troubles enter with you. You have been raised up and are seated beside your Abba Father in the Heavenly Realms IN Christ Jesus.
Fear not, My Child, I AM your Shield, and your Exceeding Great Reward. You are secure in My House. The Shield in My Right Hand is your Protection in these last days.
My House is the Secret Place of Peace and Safety. Leave the world behind you and come in by faith. Fix your eyes upon Me and not of the things of earth.
Think not that everything will continue as it was before. You are not of the world, Dear One. For behold, I AM doing a new thing. I make a Way where there seems to be no way.
Every day, expect to see Me working in your life as you rest in Me. You are hidden with Christ in God.
In My House there are many Mansions — there are many Rooms prepared for you. If it were not so, I would tell you.
It is not just for when you leave your earthly body at some time in the future through death but My House is open to you now. It is always NOW in The Kingdom of God.
Time has no relevance in the Divine Dimensions of the Realms of Heaven. You are not of the world, My Child.
You are a citizen of Heaven. You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people — that you should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into My Marvelous Light.
O My Dove, in the clefts of the Rock, in the Secret Places of the stairs, let Me see your face, let Me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.
“Hear the Spirit calling you, My Child. Come into My Presence, come up higher. Lift up your eyes to Him who is your Help.
Hear your Beloved calling to you. Rise up, My sons and daughters, rise up My love, My fair one, and come away, and I will show you secret things that are now being revealed.”
LIFT your eyes : Strong’s Hebrew 5375: To lift, bear up, carry, to lift, to bear, carry, support, sustain, take away, carry off, to lift oneself up, rise up, to be borne, be carried, to be taken away, be carried off, be swept away.
FIX your eyes : 872 aphoráō (from 575 /apó, “away from” and 3708 /horáō, “see”) – properly, “looking away from all else, to fix one’s gaze upon Jesus.” (Abbott-Smith).

“And God RAISED US UP with Christ and SEATED US WITH HIM in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might display the surpassing riches of His grace, demonstrated by His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.”
“I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knows;) such a one caught up to the third heaven. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knows;) How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable (secret, sacred) words, which it is not lawful (possible) for a man to utter.” 2 Corinthians 12:2-4
