I heard, “Vessels of Honor, Stairway to Heaven”
Today I heard about a building in New York City called, “The Vessel.” It has many stories and many open stairways that go around and around to the top.
As I was contemplating such a place, and how it got that name, I was taken into a vision of a Believer.
He himself was The Vessel. Father called him a Vessel of Honor, and I saw angels ascending and descending upon him, like Jacob’s Ladder.
God is opening doors for you to come higher, Beloved. You are Holy and Separated unto God through Jesus. You are The Vessel of The Holy Spirit.
God says, “There is no place to go but UP, Beloved!” Run to God for comfort in the midst of your distress and suddenly you shall discover you’ve arrived in the Secret Places of the Stairs!
“Beloved. You do not need to travel to a place in the natural to commune with your God. I AM in you and you in Me.
I AM The Door to every Spiritual Realm. I AM He who takes you higher by The Spirit. Have no fear, for the Angels ascend and descend on this Highway of Holiness.
They are your traveling Companions. No beast can come here, only the Redeemed of The LORD may walk here.
This Secret Place of the Stairs is in you, My Child. You have access to My Throne of Grace 24/7 by The Spirit.
The Heavens have been rent, Beloved, I have come down to you so that you can come up to Me.
O My Dove, you that are in the Clefts of the Rock, in The Secret Places of the Stairs, let Me see your countenance, let Me hear your voice; for sweet is your voice, and your countenance is lovely.
To you who desire, I shall take with Me in The Spirit and I shall show you things to come. For you have knocked and I have opened and come in and dined with you.
I AM The God who makes all things possible. You are always invited come up higher. For you are My Vessel of Honor in whom I pour the New Wine.
This world has nothing for you, My Love. Climb higher with Me.
Follow Me up on The Stairway of Heaven. There are so many things I want to show you. Do you not realize that I have already delivered you from the power of darkness, and have TRANSLATED you into the Kingdom of My Dear Son?
Do not be surprised then when I take you away in The Spirit when you ask. Ask and you shall receive.
Call to Me from the ends of the earth, call when your heart grows faint; and I shall lead you to the Rock that is higher.
You are not earth bound anymore, My Child. Like the wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it is going, so it is with everyone born of The Spirit.”

“Just as Jacob discovered that night at Bethel when he saw angels coming down and going up the ladder between heaven and earth, the secret places of the stairs is like a heavenly portal. (See Genesis 28.) It’s a place where we can move freely between heaven and earth, talking with God, experiencing wonderful times of refreshment in His glorious presence, and feasting with Him on His Word. It’s a place where we can leave the cares and sorrows of our world behind, push open the door to the heavenly courts, and enter the throne room of God to worship Him freely in spirit and in truth.” (©One hour Each Day)
