To fulfill your destiny in CHRIST JESUS, you have to always go to Galilee, to the mountain (your place of Divine lifting) He has appointed for you before time began.
“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,” Acts 17:26 emphasis added
You have to daily be within your preappointed times and the boundaries of your dwellings.
The ONLY safe place to be, is within The Will of GOD.
Go to your Galilee daily (by prayer, seeking THE LORD continually), walking in THE SPIRIT (Galatians 5:16, 25) to be in places and purposes THE LORD has appointed for you — led by THE SPIRIT to do what, where, when and how, (Acts 9:6).
THE LORD, just before He was crucified, and again on The Day He rose from the dead, had explicitly told His disciples to go to Galilee where they will see Him.
They were in Jerusalem at the time.
“Then JESUS said to them, “All of you will be made to stumble because of Me this night, for it is written: ‘I will strike The Shepherd, And the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’ But after I have been raised, I will go before you to Galilee.”” Matthew 26:31-32.
“Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.”” Matthew 28:10.
“Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which JESUS had appointed for them.” Matthew 28:16.
Had the disciples not gone to Galilee as commanded, they will not have seen The Risen JESUS.
If you remain in ‘Jerusalem’ (an old place/ a thing), while THE LORD is waiting for you in ‘Galilee’ (a new place/thing), you will NOT see Him and be blessed by Him.
It is all about obedience: to quickly and timely do whatever The Master says . And obeying with reverence and GODly fear
When JESUS says “GO”, just go; it will be alright — as you hear His Voice and follow Him.
We must be at our appointed place physically as well as in THE SPIRIT to hear The Voice of THE LORD and do what He says.
“I, John, both your brother and companion in The Tribulation and Kingdom and Patience of JESUS CHRIST, was on the island that is called Patmos for The Word of GOD and for The Testimony of JESUS CHRIST. I was in THE SPIRIT on THE LORD’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud Voice, as of a trumpet, saying, “I AM The Alpha and The Omega, The First and The Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.”” Revelation 1:9-11.
At this crucial time, I repeat, we must be at our appointed place physically as well as in THE SPIRIT to hear The Voice of THE LORD and do what He says.
This revelation was well driven home for me in a very personal and experiential way last June.
There was a very serious situation in which some people planned to do me a very great evil. Very calmly, I sought THE LORD to know what to do about the very dangerous situation.
Repeatedly, THE HOLY SPIRIT said to me to go to a particular nearby town, which I had never been to before.
The Instruction sounded bizarre, but I obeyed (having ascertained that It was THE HOLY SPIRIT). And I was continually praying, speaking with tongues and with my understanding.
When I got to the town, I sought THE LORD further and pensively.
Suddenly, He told me to call a brother who lived many miles away. And I did immediately.
I was amazed (I still am) that THE LORD had long made arrangements regarding the situation, with neither the brother nor I knowing.
So, THE HOLY SPIRIT caused me to go to a town just so He could tell me what to do.
It is all about what He has planned for you to do and be where, when and how — so as to be blessed.
If I had not obeyed as ordered by THE LORD, I would not have been delivered and blessed.
Paul had to go to Damascus to receive his sight, deliverance, mission and baptism. (See Acts 9). Abraham had to leave Ur of the Chaldeans and go to Canaan before He was blessed by The Covenant.
THE LORD Himself was driven by THE HOLY SPIRIT into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil, and THEN returned to (guess where?) Galilee in The Power of THE HOLY SPIRIT. And His Fame spread in the surrounding regions, (Luke 4).
In all things, we have to always seek THE LORD to do what, where, when and how.
Thus, by practice, yes, by reason of use, we have to have our senses exercised to discern what to do as ordained by THE HOLY SPIRIT, (Hebrews 5:14; Philippians 1:9-11; 1 Corinthians 1:5).
“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what The Will of THE LORD is.” Ephesians 5:15-17.
“The LORD Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.” 2 Timothy 4:22.
“Farewell” Acts 15:29.

As John was, Jacob is the disciple whom JESUS loves, (John 13:23;19:26; 20:2; 21:7,20). And like Paul, Jacob is “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS” (Ephesians 3:1) for His Purpose forever: to obey Him always.
“And having been perfected, He became The Author of Eternal Salvation to all who obey Him,” Hebrews 5:9.
