Dissolved Then Absorbed

On Thursday morning, while doing my prayer time and bible reading, I was praying through Psalm 108 and as I reflected on the majesty and glory of God I was invited into a encounter like I had never experienced before. I saw myself dissolving into dust particles on a molecular level, so no flesh was left, no bones were there, I literally was dissolving is the only way I can describe it. Then as I was dissolving, I saw that I was being absorbed into a Being, that I knew was Yahweh, the God of heaven and earth. The dissolving of me was being absorbed into Him. As I watched this take place, John 17 came to my mind, in which Jesus prays, Father, the glory which You gave me I have given them that they may be one just as we are one.

Once I was physically gone, what was left on the ground, which I knew was what was inside of me, was a vertical black safe, it was probably 5 ft tall and 3 ft wide. There was both a combination lock and a wheel on the door of this safe. As I looked at the safe/vault looking structure, I asked the Lord, what is that? I got no response, I lingered with Him in this encounter, but stillness, silence, nothing more to see, nothing more to hear. When the encounter finished I wrote it down in my journal and continued to ponder it throughout the day.

On Thursday night, Glory of Zion was beginning their Passover weekend of services, so I tuned in online at 7pm, the guest speaker for the night was Jane Hamon, a prophetess, and she said, in 2012, the Lord gave her a prophetic vision about a safe/vault and now 7 years later, we have come full circle and God is unlocking this safe/vault. She even described it and it was the same safe/vault in my vision. My mouth was on the floor as I felt the Lord wink at me. This is what I saw and the Lord was saying, it is being unlocked so access to the treasures within can be released.

What I have learned since Thursday, after talking to some friends about this experience and spending some more time in the word, listening for more about this encounter, the Lord showed me is, just as Isaiah cried in chapter 6, woe is me, I am undone (dissolved), when He saw the Lord, that as we see the Lord, we are going to recognize our smallness and hear the invitation into His majesty, but to do so, we must become one with Him.  In John 11:44, where Lazarus has come out of the grave, and Jesus says, “Loose him and let him go!” this word loose in the Greek means to dissolve. I was stunned, the Lord is releasing us from the limitations and restrictions that have bound us. We are dissolving into Oneness with Him and this is unlocking treasures untold. My friends, we are living in a new era, as Dutch Sheets has said so many times. God is teaching us, that the more we understand His nature, the easier it is for us to let go of self and become One with Him.

There is no God is my co-pilot, nor are we in partnership with Him. The Lord has been and always will be after oneness with us. To become one, we have be dissolved, so we can be absorbed.

Harmonizing with HIM

Do you know what it means to harmonize? Have you ever sung in a choir? Or done a duet? Whether your musical or not, the need to learn to harmonize is a basic social skill that most of us do, knowingly or unknowingly. Harmonizing is the ability to blend your sound with the sound of others in order to create a new sound that has a pleasing effect. People who are good listeners are good at harmonizing, for they know how to blend their thoughts with the thoughts of the one that is speaking, so the two thoughts intertwine or complement each other. “The term harmony derives from the Greek ἁρμονία harmonia, meaning “joint, agreement, concord”, from the verb ἁρμόζω harmozō, “(Ι) fit together, join”. To harmonize, means you have to be a listener and a learner, so you can join the sound that is being released.

Jesus was a master at harmonizing with His Father. While in a discussion with the religious leaders of His day, Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.  For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.” Jesus understood the sound the Father was releasing from heaven and He harmonized with that sound from the earth.

Now let’s look at harmonizing between heaven and earth with this verse, which has been quoted so many times. “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.  For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:18-20). Can you hear it? Can you hear how heaven is harmonizing with earth and how we are called to harmonize with each other? Our Father, which art in heaven loves to release sounds for us to harmonize with Him on. He is in heaven, we are on earth and yet if we will harmonize with Him, we can create one sound that is pleasant to hear.

God is a speaking Spirit. He loves to talk. He loves to release sounds from His throne. As we take more time to listen to the sound He is releasing, we will find that unity in the body of Christ is not as difficult as we thought, but we must harmonize with Him. Division comes from us wanting to take the lead, rather than us joining the sound He is releasing. When we harmonize with Him, we will release a sound that will not only cause people to resonate with the sound, but all of creation will recognize the sound. Will you become one who learns how to listen, so you can join the choir and begin to harmonize with Him? He is the sound we are harmonizing with. He is the one who is our leader, we are the ones called to be the listeners. When we do this, we will find that we are harmonizing with Him.
