When Our Heavenly Father created this physical world, HE created the realm of cause and effect, seedtime and harvest, sowing and reaping. In this realm, time cycles work well and are fully reliable. Planetary movements can be calculated and counted on to work throughout the eons of time. Physical laws are expected to prevail tomorrow just as they did today. Each day tens of thousands of airplanes take off and land without considering the law of thrust and lift. “If, then” is inherent in our thinking. The Mosaic Law was given for people to operate lawfully in this realm. If you do this, you will suffer consequences. However, the Law of Grace supersedes the realm of cause and effect. Let’s call this higher place the Realm of Divine Intent.
The mind wants formulas to live by and the realm of cause and effect oblige with countless formulas to retain our focus. On the other hand, the realm of Divine Intent focuses on relationships not logic. It focuses on the richness of choices made by Love and defies the thinking in the lower realm of cause and effect. When grace operates in this higher realm, “effect” is no longer a given.
Those aspiring to be called “Sons of GOD” or overcomers, will only attain that goal if they enter into this higher realm. Unless you are aware of a higher realm, you will not seek it out. Babylon (confusion) will by its very nature keep you focused in the realm of cause and effect, countless formulas, and the quest for more head knowledge. Instead, our pursuit and focus should be on this higher realm. Jesus is the door to this higher realm. We must “unlearn” all the world has convinced us of and come to Our Heavenly Father as little children (who have not been inundated with world thought).
Romans 8:14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
If we are to be in the “Sons of GOD” group, we must be led by HIS Spirit. HIS Spirit is Love based and unless we immerse ourselves in HIS Spirit of Love, we will not ascend into the Realm of Divine Intent but will continue to wallow around in the realm of cause and effect. Jesus did not ascend to a place of prayer with an IPod playing the latest tunes. HE separated himself from the noise of the world to commune with Our Heavenly Father.
Galatians 5:23-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
Notice that the first fruit is Love and without this first fruit, I would suggest that the other fruit will not sustain. How can you gauge whether you are being led by the Spirit of GOD? Check your fruit. Are you walking in Love or self interest? Are you a giver or a taker? Do you promote peace or turmoil? Look in the mirror and become a fruit inspector. This will provide you a starting place. Look at your checkbook and your calendar. Your time and money provide evidence of where your focus lies. If you’re broke, give time, a kind word, a loving touch… it’s not just about money. If you’re wealthy, let go of some of that wealth as the Spirit of GOD directs. A good steward will always be given more to manage.
By and large, we must remove worldly thoughts and traditions of man that have interfered with our thinking. Consider this- we have more technology, more information, more experts, better communications, yet the world is in a bigger mess today than ever. More information is not the solution, ascending to the Realm of Divine Intent is!
