Barbie Breathitt shares an intriguing word in her recent article: "Learning to Dwell in the Mansion of the Lord."

Just the title itself caught my attention.

As you read through Barbie's word, you'll discover how you can access and increase the heavenly realm in your life and learn to "dwell" there. Isn't it fun learning all that is available to us in the glory realm of God? (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

The Holy Spirit empowers our spirits to recognize, perceive and know the 'comings' of the Spirit of God and to identify the 'goings' of the Lord's presence. Jacob awoke from his sleep, and said, "Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it" (Genesis 28:16b).

To change our present state of being, it is essential to take our focus off of what was and that which has hindered and left us unfulfilled or dissatisfied. Jesus asks each person, "Who do you say that I AM?" The convictions you hold about God and yourself in Christ directly determine what you display in life.

Creating and Living from the Consciousness of the Father

Being acutely aware of Christ in us makes all things possible. "You will also decide and decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and the light [of God's favor] will shine upon your ways" (Job 22:28). God created in us a natural desire to decree and process something that we desire into existence.

In addition to being consciously aware of its actuality, we must take on its image and likeness. Jesus said it this way: "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Me" (John 12:32). Another way we can look His words is this: "If I be lifted up, magnified and exalted to a place of consciousness in your heart, I will draw all men unto Me." No one is able to come to Jesus unless His Father draws that person to Him, for Jesus and His Father are One!

Therefore, the Father is the state of consciousness (in which the Believer dwells) that draws to us the manifestations of the things we desire in life. When we desire Jesus, the Father draws us unto Himself and then into Jesus.

"No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known]." (John 1:18)

You must sanction your consciousness to rise upon Christ until He becomes tangibly touchable or real within you. It is Christ in us that gives our spirits the ability to discern and consciously feel, see, hear and become a spirit that speaks for Him. For no one can serve two masters; he or she will love the One (Christ) and despise the other. When we are aware of our right state of being (in Christ) and believe it to be truth (the spirit of truth) we will manifest that reality (Christ consciousness). By taking on the candor of that attitude, we mirror that particular "mansion" or state of being in our lives.

Dwelling in the Mansion of the Lord

A mansion is a large, stately dwelling place or house. The English word "manse" was originally defined as a property large enough for the parish priest to maintain himself. "Manor" is derived from the same root and denotes a territorial holding granted to a lord who would remain or dwell there.

When I speak of a mansion, I am referring to a spiritual dwelling place, a state of being, an attitude, habitual action, personality or place of habitation in which we live, dwell, contemplate or spend most of our time. A "mansion," therefore, is a higher plane, a different attitude, a different thought process. It is taking on a new identity. We move out of old ways of thinking and confessing. When we take on the mind of Christ, we begin thinking higher thoughts. This moves us out of one state of being into a higher one.

In Scripture, we are called the temples, houses or dwelling places for the Lord. Jesus went to prepare a place (mansion) for us. The mansion to which He referred is not just a future place of residency in Heaven for us to inhabit after we shed our earthly bodies. It is where Christ is – in a higher state of spiritual existence and being. It is amazing that we can dwell there too.

Can't You Talk Louder, God?

Jesus makes all of His decisions with His Father (who exists in a higher spiritual state), the One who sent Him, so His testimony is reliable and valid.

"'I am One [of the Two] bearing testimony concerning Myself; and My Father, who sent Me, He also testifies about Me.' Then they said to Him, 'Where is this Father of Yours?' Jesus answered, 'You know My Father as little as you know Me. If you knew Me, you would know My Father also.'

"...He said again to them, 'I am going away [into a higher state or mansion], and you will be looking for Me (by natural means of man's laws, traditions or knowledge), and you will die in (under the curse of) your sin. Where I am going [into the spiritual mansions of Heaven], it is not possible for you to come?' He said to them, 'You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world (of this earthly order); I am not of this world [I AM from a higher realm, a heavenly Kingdom of mansions].

"'That is why I told you that you will die in and (under the curse of) your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He (Whom I claim to be – if you do not adhere to, trust in and rely on Me), you will die in your sins.'" (John 8:18-19, 21, 23-24 emphasis mine).

Jesus told us that He was going to His heavenly Father so that Believers could do greater works than He manifested on Earth. When we learn how to go into the mansion that Jesus has gone before to prepare for us, we will emerge as the Bride of Christ and the Sons of God. We will do the greater works He foretold.

"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father" (John 14:12)

If the Greater One is dwelling within us, orchestrating the visions that cross the screens of our hearts (imaginations), we cannot help but see how to manifest His greatness here on Earth as it is in Heaven.

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." (John 5:20)

When the Believer awakens to the reality that Christ dwells within his or her imagination (Christ consciousness), he or she is empowered to accomplish miraculous feats.

"For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the good Word of God, and the powers of the world to come, if they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame." (Hebrews 6:4-6)

Learning to dwell in the active, life-giving power of "Christ consciousness" causes us to be centered in God's perfect will. The peace of God gives us access to the Holy Spirit's revelation knowledge. Prayer, dreams and visions open the window of revelation that is from another future realm of time, which allows us to reach inside eternity to retrieve godly wisdom.

When we discover how to access and understand God's revelation, His knowledge becomes an open gateway. God's wisdom freely flows from eternity, reaching into the temporal realm of time, to bring about and display His divine perspectives.
