DUAL CONSCIOUSNESS – ASCENDING OVER SCRIPTURE

rassouli-circle

Focus on Scripture to find yourself in the state of dual consciousness where you are simultaneously aware of spiritual realities and physical surroundings. I have found this concept to be a reality in my own life.

Yesterday, I shared how people can ASCEND OVER SCRIPTURE through a process called the “Lectio Divina”: https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/02/08/practicing-his-presence-lectio-divina/ 

This ancient spiritual practice is something I happened upon as I simply pressed into His Presence (Spirit) and His Word (Truth) simultaneously. At the time, I did not even know that there was a “Lectio Divina.” I simply flowed to the best of my ability according to His heart. The more I ascended over Scripture, the more I flowed seamlessly being spirit-led through various components: reading Scripture, listening to God’s voice, meditating on what was enlightened, praying over things that applied personally to me, contemplating His presence and His kingdom realities.

So… even though the “Lectio Divina” is an excellent practice, I would encourage you to let the Holy Spirit have the reigns once you feel comfortable with the reading, mediation, praying and contemplation steps. It’s as easy as breathing. Remember that you are an eternal supernatural being having a human experience. Pretty soon, if you practice ascending over Scripture as part of your daily word portion (Matthew 6:11), you will find yourself walking in that crossover place where you are in two realms at one time: heaven and earth. This is where the kings & priest of the Order of Melchizedek walk.

I would also strongly encourage you to spend extended periods in His Presence ascending by the Spirit in simple quietness as well as ascending over His word. For years, I spent 3-12 hours a day ascending over Scripture (Truth) or in simple quietness (Spirit). This is how Yeshua (Jesus) revealed the Order of Melchizedek to me. BTW – The simplest definition for the word ORDER in the Order of Melchizedek is “word.” Check it out => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/05/24/the-order-is-word/

The sons of God – who are commissioned into the Order of Melchizedek when they enter the kingdom of God (John 3:5) – mode of operation includes all three levels of the Word of God:

[1] Word of Faith (Romans 10:8, Romans 10:17),
[2] Word of Truth (2 Corinthians 6:7 2 Timothy 2:15; James 1:18), and
[3] Word of Righteousness (Hebrews 5:13-14).

If you research these all-encompassing stages of the Word of God, which leads to our maturation (i.e., perfection), you will first find that these steps are progressive in nature being listed from easiest to hardest. Second, you will find that the Word of Faith goes with hearing, the Word of Truth goes with studying, and the Word of Righteousness goes with doing. It’s equivalent to the watch word for Is-real – The Shema – which declares that the LORD our GOD is ONE (Deuteronomy 6:4), and a person who is ONE with Him hears, understands and does what they see the Father doing, just like Yeshua did (John 5:19,30).

We must understand that RIGHTEOUSNESS is simply a State of Being, and those who are truly manifesting righteousness here on earth actually do what they say. If something is to be counted as righteousness in God’s eyes, doing never comes before our Righteous State of Being. We are human beings, not humans doing. Therefore, when the Sons of Righteousness of the Order of Melchizedek flow according to the Word of Righteousness, they are completely resonating at the fullness of the frequency of the Word of God in a particular area of their life and their actions line-up with their words as well as His.

John 4:23 tells us that true worshippers worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth. Consider that this kingdom reality is at hand. It is as close to you as the hand in front of your face with a Bible in it… in a quiet place. Enter into His Presence and stay a while, for in quietness and rest is our strength (Isaiah 30:15).

PRACTICING HIS PRESENCE – LECTIO DIVINA

book-steps

“Hot air rises.” This is the phrase I heard, as I spent my quiet time with Yeshua (Jesus) this morning. Then Yeshua breathed on me and I felt the heat of His breath, as we flew away together.

Yeshua is our daily bread (Matthew 6:11) in every sense of the way. He sustains our life and every breath we take. One of His Name’s is the “Word of God” (Rev 19:13). He is not some words on a page, but the Living Word – a living golden stream of life.

For those who are interested in growing in ascending and descending via the Son of Man (John 1:51), I would like to encourage you to practice going through the Revelation 4:1 Door now.

One way that I have ascended for years is over Scripture. I just began to “do it” naturally, as I spent more time in His Presence as well as in His Word. For those who find Ascension (i.e., Divine Encounters) more of a challenge, a possible place to start practicing His Presence is the “Lectio Divina.”

“Lectino Divina” in Latin means divine reading. It’s a Benedictine Scriptural practice of reading, meditation and prayer, which is intended to promote communion with God through an increased knowledge of God’s Word and the flow of His Spirit. It treats Scripture as a Living Word, not solely text on a page. “Lectino Divina” was first established in the sixth century by Benedict of Nursia. It was formalized into a 4-step process in the twelfth century. I am not Catholic, but I found that the deeper I pressed into God’s Presence and His Word together I began to flow in the same manner as this ancient spiritual practice.

The four traditional steps of the “Lectio Divina” are:
[1] read,
[2] meditate,
[3] pray, and
[4] contemplate.

I personally added a fifth step of grace that empowers me to stay in an ascended state in the Word (Yeshua). That step is prolonged time of silence (listening) to His Kingdom within and without to see what He has to say.

“Lectino Divina” can be an individual or corporate practice. Here some suggestions for individuals who would like to practice His Presence using the Lectio Divina. I basically expand the four core steps of the Lectio Divina into seven:

[1] CHOOSE a section of Scripture that you would like to listen to God about and experience His Presence.

For example: “This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with water only, but with the water and with the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement” (1 John 5:6-8 NASB).

[2] PREPARE: Quiet yourself to prepare yourself to hear God. I personally like to do my daily communion. You can do things like finding a quiet room, a favorite chair, some tea or whatever posture that will help you receive from God. One thing I like to do is come into DIVINE RIGHT ALIGNMENT where I command my body to submit to my soul, I command my soul to submit to my spirit, and I command my spirit to submit to the Holy Spirit. After you have done this for awhile, you will find that you do this naturally. You want your spirit man to have ascendency. Your soul and body are important too, but you want your spirit to lead, your soul to manage and your body to be in full health carrying out God’s mandates in the earth realm.

[3] READ & LISTEN: When you sense that your heart is ready, begin to slowly read the passage you selected and listen for a word, phrase or idea that the Spirit is highlighting to you.

[4] MEDITATE: Begin to meditate on the word, phrase or idea that has captured your attention by the Spirit. At this stage, you might want to ask questions, like: How can I grow into this truth? How does this apply to me? What are some practical applications to my life? Etc. It’s a good idea to write things down in a journal.

[5] PRAYER is simply meeting with God. Begin to speak to God using the word, phrase of idea that the Spirit highlighted. Speak from the depths of your heart. Tell God the particular way that you want to grow in His image, and take notes when things come to you.

[6] CONTEMPLATION: Focus your attention on the fact the God’s Presence is with you in the moment and always. Do what you feel led to do. You may feel like reading the text again, continue to meditate or talk to God or simply be silent.

[7] PROLONGED ASCENSION SILENCE: I have found that when I hover here in silence focusing on Him that I stay in all the Lectio Divina states at once. My main focus is on what He is saying, not the things I know. Many times I will write the Scripture down slowly, as I listen. I will write the revelation down as it comes to me. Some times I draw pictures too. The idea here is to experience the Living Word – the person of Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha Machiach) – in a new and profound way. Deep calls to deep.

Many times God takes Ascension Groups into realms of the spirit that illustrate His Living Word. An Ascension Group that I belonged to for 4 years found that we could go as high in the Spirit as we went deep into His Word. You can never go wrong seeking the Father both in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:23). BTW – We have found that the Lectino Divina works especially well for men and people who seem to be more analytical (process things a lot in their soul).

So practice… practice… practice spending time in His Presence…
When we behold Him, we will be like Him.
