John 15:16 “You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil…”
We each have a spiritual history of how we have related to the Lord during our life journey and the measure to which we have apprehended that for which we were apprehended. The Lord deals with each of us very specifically. Generally, we are saved and stand as raw materials for His use. One day He picks us up and says to our heart this is how I will fashion you and this is the form that this calling will take. That is the beginning of our supernatural journey as the Lord lights the candle of our spirit and our eyes are opened to see that which is invisible to the soul. This candle does not relate to our salvation and heaven as our home, but it stands as a beacon in the realm of the spirit that we are joined to the Lord and His unique purpose for us. At that moment its “game on” as this declaration will cause great activity in both Heaven and hell. The days of seemingly small things when we were taught in Spirit School about the whole armor of God become the foundation of our victory as a battle rages in both realms. What’s at stake is not our salvation but our calling and our crown.
Revelation 3:11 “I’m on my way; I’ll be there soon. Keep a tight grip on what you have so no one distracts you and steals your crown”
