I AM leading you, Beloved, to a higher place in Me. Do you not know that in the Spirit you are seated beside Me in heavenly places?
Though your rightful place as My heir is with Me on high at the Right Hand of Majesty, your mind, will, and emotions (soul) and body have not quite grasped this truth. The real you is spirit, Beloved, and you have a body and soul. Like a child on his Daddy’s shoulders, so are you, Dear One.
I have raised you up Myself, so that in the ages to come, I may show you the surpassing riches of My Grace in kindness toward you. Do not let the enemy pull you back “down to earth.”
You are not of this world, My Child. When you were born again, you came to the city of the Living God and to myriads of angels in joyful gathering. Do not fear, Beloved, but be of good cheer.
I will give you the strength to endure. You dwell in safety by Me. For I cover you all day long and you dwell between My shoulders.
“But YOU HAVE COME (past tense, not future) to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels [in festive gathering], and to the general assembly and assembly of the firstborn who are registered [as citizens] in heaven, and to God, who is Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous (the redeemed in heaven) who have been made perfect [bringing them to their final glory], and to Jesus, the Mediator of a new covenant [uniting God and man], and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks [of mercy], a better and nobler and more gracious message than the blood of Abel [which cried out for vengeance],” Hebrews 12:22-24.
“And of Benjamin (son/daughter of His right hand) he said, “The beloved of the LORD shall dwell in safety by Him; and the LORD shall cover him all the day long, and he shall dwell between His shoulders,” Deuteronomy 33:12.
“Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an High Priest, Who is set on the Right Hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A Minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man,” Hebrews 8:1-2.
“Even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus,” Ephesians 2:5-7.
