When I have visions, I interact with them. If I see myself getting into a shower, I interact with it. I might think or say, “Lord, You are getting me cleaned up. I am in Heaven, the glory is here, and I am being changed into your image and your likeness from glory to glory.” Perhaps I see a friend doing something that is displeasing to the Lord, I will interact with the vision by interceding for them right then. I cover them with the blood of Jesus for that sin and I decree they are filled with dunamis power to heal their wounds. If I see someone who is sick, I begin decreeing into the Glory! “I decree that you are well. I put the blood of Jesus on you – I command you to be healed in Jesus’ Name.” The work actually happens right then!
Here’s an example. A person that I know was having some really bad days. At the end of the third day they kind of ‘lost it’. They began speaking to people out of their soul – snapping, getting impatient, and being rude and ornery. I knew this person had to go and work with some of my people, so the next morning I prayed in tongues, ascended and had my encounter with God. He showed me this person with a gun in his hand and he was holding the gun to my teammate’s head. So, I interacted with this vision. I took the gun away from him and removed the bullets. Then I pled the blood of Jesus over him and forgave his sins (Jesus said we have the right to do that) and then I put Jesus’ Glory and Light on his soul. “Your soul is wounded and you are speaking out of the bitterness of your soul right now. So I command your soul to be well and for you to be filled with grace and peace.”
I just ‘happened’ to run into that person a bit later and the first thing he said was, “I’m so sorry. You know, I realized I was completely out of control. Something shifted for me about 20 minutes ago. Would you forgive me?” It is so much easier to do it this way than to confront people. “Look man, you’re acting up; you need to repent!” They would say, “Oh yeah? Jump off a short bridge with a long drop – whatever!” They are not going to receive it. But when you do it in Heaven, it happens right then! You are getting work done! When you ascend, it’s happening for you and the people you are interceding for. So don’t just get the vision, interact with the vision!
Let’s look at Paul doing exactly what I just described in Acts 22:17-19 (AMPC) “Then when I had come back to Jerusalem and was praying in the temple [enclosure], I fell into a trance (an ecstasy); And I saw Him as He said to me, Hurry, get quickly out of Jerusalem, because they will not receive your testimony about Me. And I said, ‘Lord, they themselves well know that throughout all the synagogues I cast into prison and flogged those who believed on (adhered to and trusted in and relied on) You.’”
A trance came over Paul and he saw the Lord. When the Lord warned him to leave Jerusalem, Paul did not just nod his head or stand there and watch God. Paul replied to Him! Then God told him to go because he was sending him far away to the Gentiles. He interacted with God in the trance!
The same thing happened with Peter in Acts 10 when he fell into a trance. God tells him to rise up and kill and eat unclean animals and insects. Peter interacts with what he is hearing and seeing by telling God no, he has never eaten anything unclean. Then God commands him not to call anything unclean that He has made clean. You see, during these encounters, people are not just sitting there. They are responding – interacting with what they are seeing and experiencing at that moment with God. Interact! You will have accelerated breakthrough – bam!
Before you descend back down, ask the Lord what you should bring back with you. What you see in Heaven belongs to you. Deuteronomy 29:29 (AMPC) “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God, but the things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all of the words of this law.” When God is showing you things in Heaven, they are revealed to you so that they can belong to you. Then you can take possession of them and they will empower you to do the word of the Lord. Ask Him, “What can I bring back?” Listen for Him. He will speak to you and then, by faith, you can bring it back down with you. By faith, you can reach out in your visitation and say in your spirit, your mind, or with your mouth aloud, “I take that by faith, because the secret things belong to God but the things revealed to me belong to me and my children so I can go back down and do the word of the Law.” Bring it back down here and loose it in the Name of Jesus!
Geeps! The time and space is up already! Next week will be our Christmas blog; I know you will enjoy going into this Christmas a bit more healed in your soul!
