INTERACTING WITH THE DIMENSIONS OF GOD BY AP. AROME

Jul 6, 2024

Throughout the scripture, God gives us an open invitation to interact with the dimensions of God. For example, He tells us in Hebrews 4:16 to come boldly to the throne of grace. This is not a physical location but a dimension.

Christianity is sustained by visits and encounters in the dimensions of God. Anytime the Spirit of God moves, it is because God has chosen to show mercy.

Luke 1:8-20

Zacharias was ministering before the altar of incense (in prayer). Prayer does not ascend to heaven in human words but as incense which God picks and receives (perceives) from your heart. It is a heart transaction. There is a difference between the dimensions of where your prayers are offered and received (answered).

Zacharias encountered a dimension that he was not knowledgeable enough to adequately interact with so he came out of the temple dumb.

There is a location in the Spirit called “the Name of the Lord” where every knee bows. At this realm, your prayer points cannot sell because there is already an emphasis, will, and preference at that realm so your prayer point bows.

God wants to equip His church with the knowledge of how to interact with dimensions and how to explore them. This is what will determine how much strength we carry. Each dimension has its protocol hence necessitating training for every dimension we undergo.

John 3:13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven.

Your lifestyle shows where you are operating from; the last place to operate from is the earth. Man is the only creature that has a spirit which gives him legitimacy to operate in the unseen realm and the body to operate in the natural realm.

Jesus was speaking with Nicodemus on earth but yet telling that His reality, power, and enforcement were coming from heaven: He was using the heavenly resources (that were beyond time and matter) to live His natural life as the physical realm is insufficient.

There are resources that God has made available for us in the spiritual realm to execute our work in the physical realm. When your enemy takes the fight for spiritual welfare, do not fight in the natural, take the battle to your dimensions because your success will not depend on your strength but on the dimension you are anchoring your faith. (1 Samuel 17:45)

Sometimes you pray for an issue and it takes you a while because the answers are in a certain dimension. Therefore, your prayers are vehicles through which you transit and in there are dealings you experience as you transit which God is more interested in than the answers you receive from Him.

What are Dimensions?

Spirit dimensions are spiritual realities and realms in heaven that God allows your spirit man to come in contact with when you yield to the Holy Ghost.

1 Corinthians 2:1-5

Paul decided that the presentation of the gospel be based on the demonstration of the Spirit and power, not on man’s words or wisdom. This ensured that each Christian had a working relationship with God as their faith was anchored in the Spirit and power of God.

1 Corinthians 2:6-8

The second thing about Paul’s ministry is that it was rooted in a dimension that is higher than the dimension of darkness. If we want to defeat witchcraft, we need to go into realms that are beyond where witchcraft operates from.

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

We are aware that God loves us but we are not sure if you love God. The things that no eye has seen (secret wisdom) are for those who love God. Loving God is evidenced by our love life: how we spend our money, giving in the house of God, etc. God can tell how much we love Him based on the sacrifices we are willing to expose ourselves to for the advancement of His Kingdom on earth.

This wisdom is not learned or taught but handed out by the Holy Spirit as He is the one who excises guardianship over the realm of God. If you are going to access the realm of God, it is the Holy Spirit to give you a revelation to access that realm. You cannot know God because you desire to, but because the Holy Spirit is willing to reveal Him. He is the one who introduces us to the realm of God and teaches us how to know God.

1 Corinthians 2:10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

The Holy Spirit has to give you the capacity to interact with the realm where God is. That is why Jesus said He cannot do anything of Himself but it is how He sees the Father do (John 5:19,30). Jesus was able to see what the Father was doing by the Spirit whom He had yielded to.

This introduces us to the first dimension of God: the realm of intimacy. This is the realm that the preacher attempted to explain in the book of Songs of Solomon. According to him, there are nine levels of intimacy and the last level is when a pursuer of God is willing to be released to the altar of sacrifice.

This is the level that Isaac got to when Abraham wanted to sacrifice him because he could have overpowered Abraham physically. But there was a knowledge he had that made him submit. (Genesis 22:6-14)

Therefore, if the Spirit of God is going to have His way with you, you must find a way that your flesh is brought into captivity so that you can yield to Him without resistance so that He may accomplish the wisdom of God in your life.

There needs to be a friendship with the Holy Spirit because if you do not know the language by which He communicates, you cannot respond.

The Realm of Intimacy

You may know the Bible and not know Jesus or the Holy Spirit. There is a difference between the passage and the message: the message is what is revealed by the Holy Spirit while the passage is the tools that give muscle to the message.

If all you know is the passage and not the message, then you’ll be preaching without the inspiration of God. These efforts are by your brain and you will not build anybody.

But when the Spirit of God builds, He gives you a message, then you use passages to build and communicate that message. After a while, you’ll see the beauty of how God develops people because you are not the one who is in charge of what you say.

Ephesians 3:2-9- The Fellowship of the Mystery

It was the call on Paul’s life that warranted the dispensation of God’s grace. If a man has no assignment from Jesus Christ, he cannot attract the dispensation of the grace of God. It is by that dispensation of grace that distributes grace to others.

That grace is what gives access to the knowledge of the hidden knowledge of mysteries.

The three members of the Godhead operate a unique type of fellowship with one another. The council of the Godhead is where the fellowship of the mystery takes place, it is where you are given the opportunity to come and find out the things kept secret and access to think their thoughts.

Intimacy with God is the invitation that God has given us to come into the fellowship of the mystery: there are still things hidden in God that He wants to make manifest. Your ministry must be one of the disclosures of things (wisdom) hidden in God. Your ministry is the wisdom that was kept to challenge darkness in this era where there is so much corruption in the body of Christ.

However, only those who have the ability to access such things that are hidden in God through the fellowship of the mystery can uncover such strategies that God has ordained for the season.

How Do We Access the Fellowship of the Mystery?

1 Corinthians 6:17 But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.

For us to access the fellowship of the mystery, God created what we call a “mingled spirit.” When you gave your life to Christ, the Spirit of God mingled Himself with your spirit so that you performed in the strength of the Spirit of God.

Zacharias spoke about his insufficiency: this is how the earth is; insufficient. Until the spiritual realm swallows up the things of this world, you’ll always be complaining.

These things were put in place for our advantage but we need to journey to the dimensions of God where there is no insufficiency, for it is the Spirit that can help our infirmities. God knows our weaknesses are legitimate but in the Spirit of God, there is help for your infirmities.

For with God, all things are possible. There is a sufficiency in the Spirit but the physical realm is a realm of lack. We will not faint because the Spirit gives strength to those without might (Isaiah 40:29-31).

Pray that the Holy Spirit may make you wise; there is a knowledge that you need to know that will equip you for destiny.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
