Kingdom Total Surrender Vs Earthly
“There is a vast difference between total surrender in your natural eyes and total surrender in My eyes.
Your natural eyes will allow you to see and surrender things that are bothersome, and knowingly preventing you from going where you want in the Kingdom. There are literally hundreds of layers of flesh issues that need to be dealt with as if it were onion skin.
To peel these back all at once would be impossible for your natural man to handle. So My Spirit gently works with circumstances all around you, to bring you to a place of revelation knowledge.
He will bring you to a place where you see each individual character trait that is opposed to Mine. At this point you will start to feel conviction enter your soul, but it will come slowly and presented in a gentle manner because My Spirit is gentle.
When you first surrendered to My Kingdom you had all intentions that you were fully surrendered at that moment, however if you ever compared My total surrender to your earthly total surrender you would say I cannot do this; because I know there is nothing wrong with what I AM doing and how I AM living.
The depths to which My Spirit will take you is to far beyond your imagination. You will be very wise to approach My Kingdom surrender program with an infant mentality.
An infant mentality is one where you admit you know nothing of what is required to go through the narrow gate. As long as you’re on the outside of the gate you have no idea what is required to go through the gate into My Kingdom.
Your natural man will never accept the fact that you must give up your family because your natural love, will put them first before Me and this is an automatic exclusion from My kingdom.
“He who loves and takes more pleasure in father or mother more than in Me is not worthy of Me….. and he who loves and takes more pleasure in son or daughter more than in Me is not worthy of Me,” Matthew 10:2,37.
The only way you will ever be able to go down through the onion skins of your life is a one by one daily time with My Father in the secret place, where He reveals Himself to you and you are slowly but surely transformed into his character.
Your love for me and My Kingdom will slowly supersede your love for every other person, place, or thing on the planet. This love is so supernatural that you will not recognize the change taking place inside your Spirit man. However the biggest challenge will be others around you that you love, not excepting your total surrender because it is so radical and opposed to where they are.
You must stop trying to take one day at a time now. You must take one layer (skin) at a time but only as My Father presents it to you, in the secret place.
At this point your full faith and trust in the fact that My Father knows what He’s doing, just keep saying, “Yes LORD, I surrender”. This is the point where He gives you the power to say, yes, but until that time you will struggle and your surrender will not be complete.
“My Father’s thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways His ways. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are His ways higher than your ways, and His thoughts than your thoughts,” Isaiah 55:8-9.
You are way under estimating the distance between My Fathers ways and thoughts and your earthly ways and thoughts. To align your thoughts and ways with His thoughts and ways is a massive undertaking that can and must be done only through revelation knowledge in the secret place, day after day, layer after layer.
The good news is that in some cases, My Father will be able to move multiple layers or skins all at the same time. When you say, “Yes”, in COMPLETE faith and really trust, that He is who He says He is, several layers will be removed in one moment advancing you well into through the narrow gate.
Each layer that you carry is baggage that will prevent you from fitting through the narrow gate. When you say, “Yes,” to a layer you move a little farther through the gate to a place where you will finally be able to go through into My Kingdom, because supernaturally the last layer (the last skin) has been removed!
This must be the goal every Kingdom Citizen.”
Two Great Revelations!
WOW, today I had two great revelations. One is very good and one is not so good, but they will both change my life forever.
My blog this morning gave me both sides. Father in His kindness and love for me, showed me how I am not surrendered in a Kingdom perspective like I thought.
He showed me how I am still trying to call the shots and not willing to turn everything over to those people he sends into my life. That’s the bad part, the good part is, I am willing to repent and lay it all down so that I can go through every door that he opens without fear.
It’s so crazy, just when you think you’ve done it all, you find out you’ve done nothing and he’s done it all and he’s waiting for you to walk through the open doors.
I had it all figured out in my head that I was going to be healed and do this and that for the Kingdom and in every instance I kept hitting a brick wall with no clear explanations from the Throne Room.
I came to the conclusion that I had to surrender everything and I mean everything in order for me to be an example of the Kingdom. So I said, “LORD whatever your desire is for my life, let’s do it!” and I threw myself on his love and mercy for the hundredth time and doors started opening.
These are doors that I did not want to open, nor was I going to entertain the thought of them. But within hours, persons, places and things all started to change.
The moment I said if you want to take me home Father, please let’s do it, but whatever you do let the pain be gone, whether it’s here in Florida or in your glorious Kingdom, let’s do it.
Without going into great detail some of you will understand this and I will explain further as time goes on.
Now I have no idea at all what’s on the other side of the next-door as a matter of fact I’m not even sure what the next door looks like. However there is an excited peace about whatever door starts to open, because I have agreed with Father, “I’m going through, because I trust you with everything.”
Boy I sure hope this makes sense.
