There is a Glory Storm coming! We are on the precipice of the greatest move of God this planet has ever seen. God has always desired to make ready a people that will inhabit the place of His glory.
The key to our being able to go into the glory is righteousness-consciousness. God has declared us righteous before Him in the courts of Heaven, and He has given us the righteousness of Jesus Christ Himself. Romans 5:17 tells us that those who “have received the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness” reign in life by Christ Jesus. You are not an old sinner saved by grace; you are a new creation with access to the life and nature of God Almighty! A revelation of who you are in Christ is essential to your stability in life, and your ability to participate in this end-time harvest of the ages. A righteousness-consciousness is the only thing that can hold the weight of the coming glory. It is the only wiring that will support the powers of the age to come. If you are still struggling with sin-consciousness, when the glory comes, you will be tempted to drawback. We must become fully conscious of Who He is and what He has done in us. You are made in the image of God. Like Him, you are a triune being. You are a spirit. You possess a soul, made up of your mind, will, and emotions. You live in a body. This body is just the house you live in; it is not you. The real you is a spirit being and has been made like God.
There are two Biblical truths that have changed my life more than any others:
- I am a spirit.
- I am righteous.
We have to become spirit-conscious in order to participate with the Lord of the Harvest. The Lord said to me, “I want you to become less body-conscious and more spirit-conscious.” This is the number one failing that keeps people from receiving from Heaven. Why is this?
As long as you are body conscious, you will think that you are sick because you feel bad. You will think that you are weak because your body needs some rest. No! Your spirit, the real you, is connected to the life of God, and that is the Heavenly reality to which we must renew our minds and of which we must be most conscious. The zoe life of God, the very power that resurrected Jesus from the dead, is flowing in your spirit right now! You have access to that same power! Ephesians 1:19-20 says that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead is working in you! Friend, there is so much more to you than you have known or realized!
Becoming spirit conscious is the key to spiritual maturity. It means that you become most conscious that your spirit is the real you. It requires that you become more aware of the new man and not the old one you used to be – that man has died!
Jesus said to Nicodemus in John 3:3, “Unless you are born again, you cannot see the kingdom of God.” The entrance to the kingdom is governed by revelation knowledge. You will never have what you cannot see. So many Christians spend their lives living from and operating only out of the mental or the sight realm. They are merely body-conscious vs. spirit-conscious. How far below what God wants for us. Your heart is supposed to teach your head, not the other way around.
The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
~ Psalm 10:4 ~
God needs you to change your mind. He wants you to grow in revelation knowledge of the new man He has made you to be! He has thoughts about who you are that will literally transform you from the inside out, but the only way you get access to them is by seeking Him. Transformation can only come through a renewed mind. We must get our minds renewed and our hearts sanctified from sin-consciousness. Settle it today that you are a righteous spirit! It takes faith to believe that, and faith to say it. But according to Hebrews 11:6, you are not seeking God till you are walking by faith, till you are saying what He says about you. In Matthew 22:37, Jesus commanded us to “love the Lord thy God, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” You are not loving God till you love Him with your thoughts. Becoming spirit conscious means that you exchange your thoughts for His-especially your thoughts about who you are and what He says you have.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
~ Matthew 6:33 ~
Knowing you are righteous is a prerequisite to all these things being added to you. It is how everything in the kingdom is added to you. Jesus said in Luke 17:21, “The kingdom of God is within you.” Being spirit-conscious means that you are more aware of this kingdom and its governing principles – and your blood-bought right to operate them – than you are of any natural circumstance that you may encounter. When you are more aware of the kingdom within you, you are always conscious that there is a kingdom force inside you that will subdue anything in your life that is contrary to the Word and will of God.
Becoming spirit-conscious means that your spirit is the only part of you that should be making decisions. Do not let something unqualified sit on the seat of your decision-making authority. The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, and He wants to enlighten you. He will speak to you, spirit to spirit. Spend time with the Word and it (He) will spend time with you. If you are having trouble hearing His voice, you aren’t spending enough time with His voice.
Your new birth instantly granted you access and connectivity to the spirit realm. It is time to become more conscious of all that God has done in you than you are of anything outward. Friend, you are not who you used to be! You are now the righteousness of God! You are a new creation! Determine today to grow up in the things of God by letting the real you, your spirit man, take the lead!
