Revelation 3:7 - "And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, 'These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens."
TAKING HOLD OF THE KEY OF DAVID
The key of David is entering into the most holy place where the glory dwells. The tangible presence and glory of God is accessed through intimate Throne Room worship. Jesus paid the price and shed His Blood so that we could enter in to the holiest of all through Him (Hebrews 10:19-22)
Colossians 1:27 - "To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."
We must enter the "Throne Zone" in order to see the tangible glory of God manifested in our midst. It is in that place that we find the glory and anointing needed to transform atmospheres on earth. We are called to be carriers of His glory. By laying hold of the KEY OF DAVID, we lay hold of the glory of His Spirit allowing Him to manifest in us and through us.
It is all about having a throne room paradigm. This is the proper perspective for believers.
SEEING FROM THE HEAVENLY PERSPECTIVE
Ephesians 2:5,6 - "Even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus."
We are not to see things from an earthly vantage point but from a Heavenly perspective. It is there that we are seated in the Heavenly places above all demonic forces. As we take hold of this key of worship in the glory, we move into deeper realms of intimacy with God, greater revelation and understanding of His divine purposes, and we have the anointing to establish and plant His Kingdom in the earth.
Psalm 18:33 - "He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on my high places."
The Lord is calling us up higher. When God begins to manifest His glory, we need to make sure that we don't try to pitch tents and build debasing structures. Jesus was transfigured before the eyes of Peter, James, and John. Peter suggested tents be built, but this was not the heart of God.
When man sees the glory, there is the fleshly reaction to capitalize on what God is doing--building earthly structures, etc.
NEW WINESKIN THINKING
Mark 2:22 - "And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins."
If we are to partake in what God is pouring out in this hour, we must have a new mindset--a new wineskin ie. we don't lean on our own understanding. Leaning on natural thinking and old ways are like crusty and stiff wineskins. These mindsets cannot carry the new wine of God's glory that is being poured out. WE SHOULD HOLD TRUE TO THE WORD, BUT REMAIN FLEXIBLE IN REGARDS TO HOW THINGS SHOULD LOOK IN REGARDS TO THE MOVING OF GOD'S SPIRIT.
1 Corinthians 2:11 - "For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God."
As believers, we need to set our natural thinking aside and ask the Lord to help us see with the eyes of His Spirit. The natural man cannot understand the ways of the Spirit. But our spirit within us is created to see and understand His ways. We commit ourselves to see with the eyes of our hearts and allow God to blow our minds with His limitless power!
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ME TO MOVE INTO GLORY REALM WORSHIP.
I APPREHEND THAT TANGIBLE GLORY OF GOD IN MY LIFE AND SETTLE FOR NOTHING LESS!
MY MISSION IS TO CARRY HIS GLORY AND RELEASE IT.
I AM DRAWN TO HIS HEART BY THE TRUE RICHES OF HIS PRESENCE.
I CRAVE INTIMACY WITH THE LORD.
