Lesson 14

In this series we have been talking about things we can do to cultivate an open heaven in our homes. So far we have talked about: carving out regular time with God, using our focus, being consistent in our worship, recognizing and keeping the heavens open, washing in the blood, praying in tongues, and activating our faith. What else can you do? Recognize that the Spirit of God living in you is the enabler. He is the one who will empower you to go up. Remember what John said when he ascended into Heaven? He said a voice said to him, Revelation 4:1-2 (AMPC) “…Come up here. I will show you what must take place in the future. At once I came under the [Holy] Spirit’s power, and behold, a throne stood open in Heaven, with One seated on the throne!”

Here’s another point: you can command your spirit to go up if something is blocking you. Some days you will have to contend for it. You can speak to your spirit man and command it to go up. There was a command given to John to ‘come up here’. He said, “A voice came to me and said, ‘Come up here, and I will show you what must take place…’” If you are having one of those days and you can’t quite get up, begin commanding your spirit to go up.

Sitting quietly in your chair and focusing will help you to ascend. You can focus on the black screen of your mind by choosing a place to focus on while you are waiting for the visions or to hear the voice of God. This will help keep you from being distracted. If you begin thinking about other things you might miss your opportunity. Just keep your focus by saying to yourself, “I’m going to keep on waiting like this. I’m going up. I know you are taking me up … I have a legal right to be there. I know you are going to give me wisdom and understanding. I’m believing and waiting for You to take me up.”

I remember when I first began ascending; I saw rings of light coming at me. As they came nearer they became larger, almost like I was passing through them. I said, “OK God, what is that? Am I ascending into Heaven?”
I felt Him say, “You are going through a tunnel of light.” And, when I would come back down, the same thing would happen in reverse. The further I got from them the smaller they would get. It wasn’t that they were actually getting smaller. It was just that I was backing out of the tunnel so they looked smaller. You might think, “I want to see all the big things in Heaven!” You might get to, depending on the grace on you today. But for me seeing the lights meant I was really doing it!

Once as I was looking at the back of my eyelids and didn’t know if I was in Heaven or not, I saw white lights washing over me. I opened an eye to see if there was something happening in the room. It was dark, no lights. So I closed my eye and there they were again. “What is that Lord? Am I in Heaven or not?” He said, “Yes. Where are you seated in Heaven?” I replied, “Next to Jesus!” and He said, “And where is Jesus seated?” And I said, “Next to YOU!” And He said, “And what am I?” And I thought, “God is Light!”

When you first begin practicing this, you might not have the biggest encounters on the face of the planet. People say, “I want to see the living creatures, the streets of gold, the throne room and the sea of glass!” You just might do that, but perhaps you won’t. This is just like any tool. If I handed you a drill, you’d have to figure out how to use it. It might take you and hour to figure out how to get one of those bits to work. But a couple of months later, you’d be able to change the bits quickly because you know how to work it.

It is the same thing with ascending. As you’re learning how to move in it, you might not have the biggest encounters at first. Don’t give up! While learning, I said to myself, “I LIKE this tool. I believe this tool is biblical and I am going to learn how to use it!” I sunk my teeth into it, and can now teach it – because the Holy Spirit showed me how to do it. I am now going to Heaven every day and God is showing me answers to my problems, how to handle situations, and how to get healing and deliverance.

Hebrews 11:1 (AMPC) reads, “Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].” Faith is required in this endeavor!! Choose to believe! ‘Do not despise the day of small beginnings’.
