Get filled with The Blood, The Spirit, and ALL The Fullness of God in The Upper Room.
Very highly significant events of ALL importance took place in The Upper Room in the Bible. One in The Old Testament and two in The New Testament.
In The Upper Room in The Old Testament, was the destruction of the yoke of childlessness (symbolic of fruitlessness) and a dramatic resurrection of the child.
In 2 Kings 4, an upper room was purposely built for Elisha the prophet by “a notable woman.” And, in there, because of her Holy Spirit-led generosity to the man of God, he prophesied to her that she “shall embrace a son.”
The woman indeed conceived, and bore a son at the appointed time, which Elisha prophesied to her.
This was a prophetic pointer to The Birth of God’s Only Son in the flesh.
In The New Testament, The LORD Jesus kept The Passover (just before His Death) in The Upper Room, at which event He established for us The New Covenant in His PRECIOUS Blood.
Next in The Upper Room, God poured out His Holy Spirit on us in the most Divinely DRAMATIC fashion on The Day of Pentecost, just as He is about to do now, “not many days from now,” (Acts 1:5).
All these things happened in The Upper Room.
The Holy Spirit indicating that, in Christ Jesus, it is in The Upper Room that we receive breakthroughs of fruitfulness in the area of life we have need.
It is in The Upper Room that we experience resurrection of life in the areas of life we have need.
The Upper Room signifies the determination to “press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
It signifies FERVENT response to the call from on High to “Come up here” through “The Door open in Heaven“, (Philippians 3:14 KJV; Revelation 4:1).
When one responds to the “Heavenly calling” of The Upper Room, one can testify like Paul: “I was not disobedient to The Heavenly Vision…” (Hebrews 3:1; Acts 26:19).
The Upper Room life requires absolute dedication to The LORD, to daily seek and do ONLY His Will, and obey His Word wholeheartedly. Those who do, are blessed.
“Blessed are those who keep His testimonies [commandments], who seek Him with the whole heart!” Psalm 119:2.
“Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of The LORD is,“ Ephesians 5:17 emphasis added.
In 2 Kings 4:10, the upper room for Elisha was furnished with a bed, a table, a chair and a lampstand (the menorah); as the notable woman said to her husband, “so it will be, whenever he comes to us, he can turn in there.”
The Upper Room is the one-on-One PLACE with God to purposefully and always turn in there for fellowship with Him.
In The Upper Room we bow our knees to The Father of our LORD Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant us, according to The Riches of His Glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ should dwell in our hearts through faith; that we, being rooted and grounded in Love (God is Love), may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height — to know The Love of Christ which passes knowledge; that we “be filled with ALL The Fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:14-19). Hallelu-YAH!
Elisha the prophet’s upper room and its furnishing prophetically represent aspects of life in “Jesus, The Prophet from Nazareth of Galilee.” (Matthew 21:11).
- The bed is about rest in Jesus (Matthew 11:28; Hebrews 4:9,10).
- The table reveals our provisions by Christ Jesus, (Luke 22:30; Philippians 4:19).
- The chair indicates our seat by God when He “made us alive together with Christ…and raised us up together, and made us sit together [with The ALMIGHTY God!] in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,” (Ephesians 2:5, 6). Always take your seat with God.
- The lampstand (the menorah) is a prophetic illumination and revelation of The Mystery of Jesus Christ The True Light, yes, The Light of the world, His Church as well as The Holy Spirit — The Oil for the lamps/lampstands (our churches), (John 1:4, 5, 9; 8:12; Revelation 1:12, 13; 20; 2:1; Matthew 25:1-13).
“Let us therefore come boldly to The Throne of Grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need,” Hebrews 4:16.
The Blood and The Spirit
The Blood of Jesus is THE ALL-important Divine Solution to all human problems.
The Holy Spirit is The Spirit who gives life to one who believes and continues to believe. And obey.
We overcome Satan by The Blood of The Lamb and by The Word of our Testimony, (Revelation 12:11).
What is The Word of our Testimony? The Word of The Cross, The Message of The Cross, (1 Corinthians 1:18).
And we are ONLY led and guided by The Holy Spirit, The Spirit of Truth. Not by man, not by science, not by medical practice, not by the news cycle, not by any other created thing.
These revelations of The Truth of God are highly indispensably important for our plain sailing in the increasingly turbulent waters of these times in this world.
Zechariah the prophet foretold The Coming of King Jesus, and that He The LORD of hosts will defend us His people at this time. And that we “shall devour and subdue with slingstones.”
(In other words, we shall destroy the enemy just as David struck down Goliath! Hallelu-YAH! See Ephesians 3:10).
We “shall drink and roar as if with wine”; yes, we “shall be filled with [THE] Blood [The PRECIOUS Blood of Christ!] like [the sacrificial] basins, like the corners of The Altar,” (Zechariah 9:15 ).
Oh, GLORY to God! WHAT — A — WORD! The Word of God is living and POWERFUL! (Hebrews 4:12).
God promised and prophesied that, at this time, by faith and prayer, we shall drink and roar as if with wine, filled with The Blood of Jesus Christ like the sacrificial basins, like the corners of The Altar in The Holy of Holies in The Temple in Jerusalem when they had the animal sacrifices!
Filled with The Blood of Jesus!
Literally, by believing and praying so (Romans 10:8-0), we will be filled with The Blood of Jesus Christ The Son of God!
We will have The PRECIOUS Blood of Christ circulating in our body, yes, The Blood of Jesus effectively working in our whole spirit, soul and body, for The Blood is the core of The Word of God, (Hebrews 4:12; 1 Corinthians 1:18).
Thus, as Paul caught this BIG revelation, “always carrying about in the body The Dying of The LORD Jesus [The Shedding of His Blood], that The Life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.” (2 Corinthians 4:10).
When you believe it with the heart and confess it with the mouth (say it in agreement that it is true), you will be always carrying about in the body The PRECIOUS Blood of Christ, that The Life of Jesus also be manifested in your body!
Remember, the life of the flesh is in the blood, (Leviticus 17:11). The Life of Jesus is in His PRECIOUS Blood. Get The Life! Get The Life of Jesus, by His Blood in your body; your whole spirit, soul and body..
I have been experiencing the marvelous benefits of this revelation since The Holy Spirit told me to “Pray The Blood of Jesus into your brain capillaries.”
(This was during a most ferocious attack on my brain and mind by the god of this age and his angels a few years ago, to blind my mind from knowing The TRUE God I have believed and served tenaciously.)
Around that time, The LORD showed me a vision in which the evil one was VERY angrily pointing to my image on a wide screen television in a satanic boardroom under the sea, saying to his minions: “Finish that man off; he is DANGEROUS to our kingdom!”
(I was all alone in the mission field, sent by The LORD Jesus to take a prized, but very tough territory for Him, both spiritually and physically).
That Word of Knowledge by The Holy Spirit, has since served me so well. So very well indeed.
For Divine sanity, for The Mind of Christ, pray His Blood into your brain and mind. Pray The Blood of Jesus Christ into your brain, gut and heart.
You see, thinking happens in the gastro-cardio-neurological system (the heavily innervated and interconnected system of the brain, the gut and the heart). I call it The Thinking System.
Forgetfulness? Fuzzy thinking? Dementia? Whatever the assault of the god of this age is on your brain and mind (2 Corinthians 4:4), only believe and pray The Blood of Jesus Christ into your thinking system.
The enemy’s main target is the mind of man. He aggressively seeks to disrupt, inhibit (hinder) and manipulate the structures, functions, bio-chemistry and electro-chemical signalling and other aspects of the brain in order to draw one away from the senses and take one captive to do his will, (2 Timothy 2:26).
Bitterness, anger, resentment, other negative emotions, unbelief/ doubt, sexual immorality and all other sins are committed when one is drawn away from his senses by the deception of the god of this age, (James 1:14-6; 2 Timothy 2:26). It is bewitchment, (Galatians 3:1).
Praying The Blood of Jesus into one’s thinking system will resist the devil to flee, and for The Mind of Christ to prevail. It is a daily warfare. But victory is assured by The Blood of Jesus.
When the enemy throws those his evil thoughts into your mind, counter it by praying:
“In Jesus’ Name, Satan, I renounce those thoughts by The Blood of Jesus.
I command them back into your head of corrupted wisdom to double destroy you with the destruction you intended against me!”
It’s quite like a live grenade or other bomb thrown at a soldier on the battlefield. A good soldier will quickly take it and throw it back to the enemy. It will then explode in the enemy side and destroy them with the very destruction they had intended.
The believer must continually fight and “endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” (2 Timothy 2:3).
Pray The Blood of Jesus Christ into your body for The Life of Jesus Christ in your body.
Oh, I get filled with The PRECIOUS Blood of Christ all the time, by praying so always.
When you continually pray The Blood of Jesus into your body, indeed, your whole spirit, soul and body, every problem, every disease, every torment therein WILL get FLUSHED out by The Miracle of Calvary! Hallelu-YAH! Glory to God!
Just the other day, in the same mission field, I was embarking on a rooftop climb for a quick DIY (do it yourself). Landing on a wrong footing, some muscles or some other tissues must have been very badly damaged in my right knee.
The pain was EXCRUCIATING! My movement stalled immediately. I knew something very very bad had happened in the knee. I could foresee it soon swelling, and I being unable to walk! (And I had a journey to embark on early the very next day!).
Brethren, all alone and battling the pain and the prognosis, I kept repeatedly PRAYING among other things: “I pray The Blood of Jesus into my knee for The Miracle of Calvary.”
I woke up in the night with no pain whatsoever. (In fact, initially, I had even forgotten that my knee had been badly hurt just hours earlier). The PRECIOUS Blood of Christ did it for me again!
Oh, if you would embrace The Blood of Jesus with all your life! What sickness, what problem, what curse would you not be set free from? What favour, what abundance would you not have from God?
Eat The Flesh of The Son of Man and drink His Blood daily (by PRAYING so as well as taking The Communion), you will truly live the VICTORIOUS Life in Christ Jesus.
The Jews were offended when The LORD Jesus addressed them, saying: “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat The Flesh of The Son of Man and drink His Blood, you have no life in you. For My Flesh is food indeed, and My Blood is drink indeed.” (John 6:53, 55).
The Flesh and The Blood of Jesus provide Divine Life to us. The Flesh and The Blood of Jesus provide Divine Nourishment for human life to live supernaturally.
The PRECIOUS Blood is life-critical: for the life that now is, and The Life to come.
Depend all on The Blood. Depend on The Blood of Jesus for whatever, whenever.
Get filled with The PRECIOUS Blood of Christ like the sacrificial basins, like the corners of The Altar.
Another profound prophesy by Zechariah is to seek and be filled with The Holy Spirit for POWER! (Zechariah 10:1; Ephesians 5:18).
Thus we must surely seek The Holy Spirit fervently at this time, for The LORD Jesus said that we SURELY “shall be baptised with The Holy Spirit not many days from now,” (Acts 1:5).
You see, this is what happens. The Blood of Jesus first washes a person when believed and prayed. And then The Holy Spirit comes into the washed, cleansed and clean vessel.
This Divine process and procedure The Bible calls “The Washing of Regeneration and Renewing of The Holy Spirit,” (Titus 3:5; Revelation 1:5 NKJV).
We are re-GENE-rated with The Genes of Jesus in His Blood, and re-NEWed by His Holy Spirit.
It is in The Upper Room that we get filled with The PRECIOUS Blood of Christ. It is in The Upper Room that we are filled with The Holy Spirit as happened on The Day of Pentecost.
We are partakers of The Divine Nature through the exceedingly GREAT and PRECIOUS Promises of God, which start with being washed in The Blood, filled with The Blood and The Spirit and ALL The Fullness of God.
Oh, MAGNIFY The LORD with me!
I noted previously that, in the days of His Flesh, The LORD Jesus Christ ministered to thousands (He even fed over five thousand people at one time, and over four thousand at another time).
Then after He rose from the dead, He appeared to hundreds of people beforehand chosen by God. He even appeared to over five hundred brethren AT ONCE.
But ON – THE – DAY – OF – PENTECOST, only about a hundred and twenty disciples were in The Upper Room waiting and praying when The Holy Spirit came into The House, The Upper Room!
Since that first Pentecost, God is pouring out The Holy Spirit again, STARTING from this unique Pentecost, tomorrow 31 May, but BIGGER and global.
Wait and pray in The Upper Room with great expectations, filled with The Blood of Jesus.
We “shall be baptised with The Holy Spirit not many days from now.” (Acts 1:5).
“The LORD Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.” 2 Timothy 4:22.
“Farewell” Acts 15:29.

Jacob, an apostle of Jesus Christ by The Will of God, according to The Promise of Life which is in Christ Jesus, (2 Timothy 1:1). 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.
