Soaring Higher

“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

Unfortunately, many see the word “wait” as fasting. Waiting is much more than fasting; it is TRUST (the state of being convinced and absolutely dependent upon someone or something). It is our TRUST IN GOD that produces the impetus for us to soar in life. Trust (in God, not in self) is the most important prerequisite for soaring in this life. Scriptures clearly states in First Samuel Chapter 2 Verse 9 that “He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.”

Zechariah 4:6 says “…not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts”. We do not soar in life by natural ability but spiritual impartation. Those who have tried to succeed by human abilities have ended up becoming casualties in life.

There is something that guarantees success in life – it is the wind beneath our wings – and it causes us to mount to great heights that the world cannot explain (John 1:5). This wind is the power of the Divine Presence in a life that imparts the very life of God (Zoe) into an individual and makes supernatural living a physical reality. Jesus said “…I have come that you may have life (Zoe) and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).

This study hopes to answer our hunger for the better life by closely looking at what has been provided for every blood-bought child of God; it also hope to bring into our sub-consciousness the Kingdom Life – which is the essence our preparation here on earth to meet with the Lord ultimately. We hope to really have a nice time sharing the revelation of God in its most sincere, simple and systematic way tonight.

The Old has given way to the New. There is something about our generation that makes us so special and unique (Heb.11:39-40 – “And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: 40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.”)

In the Old Testament the Glory, the Power and the Presence of God comes down from heaven to the earth and had to be borne or carried around in an Acacia wood on the shoulders of priests. The Presence was tabernacle in a building called Temples or Synagogues and could only be accessed by a priest (Deut.10:8 – “At that time the LORD separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to minister unto him, and to bless in his name, unto this day.” ), whose preparation for the task must be for a whole year and who have to do it to the letter (Num.4:15 – “And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary, and all the vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to set forward; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation.”) – Remember Uzzah? (2Sam.6:1-12)

(Romans 8–10:18; Colossians 1:23-29).

But now, all the fullness of the Godhead is tabernacle inside of us (Col.2:9; 2Cor.5:17; 2Pet.1:3-4) and we have become the carriers of the Divine Presence. The Glory, the Power and the Presence of God need not come down again because it is in us – it only needs to be lived out! (Rom.8:8-11,19).

What does it mean to manifest? To manifest means to show clearly; to demonstrate. Therefore, we have been called to demonstrate the Divine Presence clearly for our world to see. There is absolutely nothing to show our world if we are still at the same plane or level with them – i.e. living like they do. We’ve got to be ahead; we’ve got to be above them (John 3:31). We are the products of heavenly extraction, and it must show in every little thing we do – the Divine Presence must be carried in everything we do. There must be a divine wind under our wings to propel us to soar higher above the standards of the world. If you are a born again child of God reading this right now, you are qualified for this life. Take it, it is meant for you! You have come into the kingdom at the best time! This is the best time of your life!
