Praying the Word, by the HOLY SPIRIT, into our inward parts of spirit, soul and heart, is what facilitates revelation into our being. This is how we actualize change and transformation.
The Word prayed needs to be understood in the Testimony of JESUS; so that when we pray by the SPIRIT, we energize the Word in the Spirit and Life of YESHUA [see John 6:63].
The Word energized in the Spirit and Life of YESHUA reveals and manifests the fullness of JESUS CHRIST into us. This is the Mystery of CHRIST revealed: the formation of CHRIST in us the hope of glory (see Col 1:26-27; Matt 17:2; 2 Peter 1:19).
The LORD JESUS CHRIST, urges us to persistently ask, seek and knock to actualize GOD’s provision.
In Luke 11:5-13 [NASB], the LORD JESUS instructs us: < 5 Then He said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend, and goes to him at midnight and says to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves; 6 for a friend of mine has come to me from a journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; 7 and from inside he answers and says, ‘Do not bother me; the door has already been shut and my children and I are in bed; I cannot get up and give you anything.‘ 8 “I tell you, even though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will get up and give him as much as he needs.
9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
10 “For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened.
11 “Now suppose one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he? 12 “Or if he is asked for an egg, he will not give him a scorpion, will he?
13 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?” >
Asking, seeking and knocking are some of the prophetic keys of personal prayer – that stand as functional elements of the Key of David – that unlock revelation knowledge to our inward parts, so that CHRIST is formed in us [see Gal 4:19; Col 1:28; Phil 4:13].
Revelation knowledge involves us actualizing the Word of GOD, in our inward parts, in the fabric of the Spirit and Life of JESUS. We are creatively defined in our inward parts, as we become Epistles of CHRIST [2 Cor 3:3, NKJV; 5:17; Eph 2:10] holding the wealth of the fullness of JESUS CHRIST [2 Cor 4:6-7, NKJV] in radiant hearts of flesh.
This is why we are prophetically addressed as Morning Stars (see 2 Peter 1:19).
1 Corinthians 2:9 [NASB] declares that revelation necessarily involves the desire to love the BELOVED: < “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.” >
The HOLY SPIRIT is the one who leads us through the Key of David (in its formation and development as YESHUA becomes our Beloved) into all truth, even searching the depths of GOD for us.
In John 16:13-15 [NASB], the LORD JESUS declares: < 13 “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 14 “He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. 15 “All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.” >
In 1 Corinthians 2:7 [NASB], we are told that there is a wisdom predestined for our glory. Paul writes: < 7 … we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory >.
And this wisdom opens into hearts as the HOLY SPIRIT searches the depths of GOD. 1 Corinthians 2:10 [NASB] reads: < for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God >.
And what does the HOLY SPIRIT search the depths of GOD for?
The HOLY SPIRIT searches the depths of GOD to actualize the treasures of the fullness of JESUS CHRIST – the only Begotten SON in the bosom of the FATHER [see John 1:18, KJV; see also John 16:14].
And, this is necessarily so because the LORD JESUS declares in John 16:15, that “all things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He [the HOLY SPIRIT] takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.”
Scripture also tells us that the FATHER has predestined the fullness of JESUS CHRIST to fill all in all [see Eph 1:23].
Hence all that flows by the HOLY SPIRIT is necessarily of the fullness of CHRIST JESUS that the FATHER has ordained to fill “all in all” and “all things” [see Ephesians 1:23; 4:10]. This is the glory of YHWH’s grace opened to us in the BELOVED [see Eph 1:6, NASB].
Hence our callings and our gifting’s, if they are genuinely being operated in and by the HOLY SPIRIT, will always glorify the FATHER and the SON. As 1 John 2:22 [NASB] pointedly declares: < … this is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son >.
Always remember that we are blessed to be a blessing. GBU.
