In response to a sister’s recent questions, I’ve now been led to share this with the Body…
With regard to the language that I’ve been using, I’ve been doing my best to convey to others what I have been getting from the Spirit as I have been getting it. I trust that God will work with it all as He desires in the hearts and the minds of individuals. The Holy Spirit is the Teacher and the Counselor of the readers, and to those who are receptive, them being appointed to this word at this time, He (the Spirit of Truth) shall work within hearts with the message that I have merely been given to share, Him even ministering to them way beyond the limits of my language.
With regard to faith in Jesus and in the redeeming power of the Blood of the Lamb, none of this work is possible without that, and it is my understanding that there is no escape from the lower regions of the spirit world without first being reconciled to the Father by the Blood of the Lamb. In the Book of Colossians, it is written that ALL men have been conciliated to the Father by the work of the Cross, meaning that the Father has no enmity with anyone, that everyone is welcome in the Beloved and yet all men must also be reconciled to the Father – them knowing (and accepting) in their heart of hearts that they are fully forgiven because of the work of Christ and that they can thereby come back into right relationship with the Father. It is also written that for this reason (reconciliation) WE have been given “the ministry of reconciliation.” The things that I have been writing about lately is the work of reconciliation; the work of bringing the spirits of people back into right relationship with the Father and thereby also bringing them back into right relationship with people.
With regard to those who are hard of heart and not ready to believe (in any realm), it is quite often Christ’s love and His kindness and His mercy and compassion shown THROUGH US which leads these to repentance. This too I have been sharing about, in a number of different ways.
As far as the ones who desire to do whatever they want, if that is truly in their heart then that is the way that they will go, regardless of their religious beliefs. The Laws of Divine Justice and of cause and effect will catch up with these eventually. Everyone will eventually be broken of all rebellion and waywardness, each in their own rank and order. The Husbandman WILL bring in the whole Harvest, first the Barley, then the Wheat, then the Grapes, meaning that every knee will bow in adoration and praise to the Lord Jesus Christ eventually, and this to the glory of God the Father.
Of course, with all of this in mind, we must also keep in mind that there are certain rewards for those who give themselves as a freewill offering to God by submitting themselves to the fires of purification now, this being much different from what will be had by those poor, stubborn and rebellious brothers and sisters for whom time in the fire (even the hellish fires) must be later mandated. I said “brothers and sisters” here because I think that we all need much more familial and fraternal love and compassion toward the lost, stubborn and rebellious, and also because it is not just “unbelievers” who inhabit the lower regions of the spirit world after physical death but also “believers” who did not take seriously the admonitions of Paul and Jesus to beware of practicing evil things in their lives lest they wind up “outside of the Kingdom” in “outer darkness” where there is “weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
Why would God allow this? Because as Paul states in his letters to the Galatians and the Corinthians, and Jesus reveals in the gospels and by the Spirit in the Book of Revelation, there are sinful practices which when not repented of severely defiles the spirits of men (opens them up to the influence of dark forces) and these spirits therefore cannot be allowed to enter even the lowest of the heavenly realms lest those realms be turned into hells. These things MUST be sanctified. So, for a season (as long as it takes) there is time assigned for such spirits (“believers” or not) to be cleansed in the nether regions of the spirit world. If you search the scriptures, you will see that this is so. This is not exactly ear-tickling, I know.
I’ll let you dig out for yourself the scriptures that support what I say here. I assure you that THERE ARE MANY. For those of you who don’t feel like digging right now, Paul essentially put it this way (remember, he is writing to “believers” here)…
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you, but you were washed by faith AND WERE SANCTIFIED, justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”
Jesus said much of the same, beloved. This is not a warning of eternal damnation, but a warning of being kept from entering the heavenly realms of the spirit world because of unsanctified rebelliousness which opens one up to dark influences. This is basically saying that spirits in heavenly places cannot have open doors to hell.
To put all of this in other words, beloved, no one gets out of the lower regions of the spirit world as an “unbeliever,” but even “believers” who have been relegated to this place do not get out until they get free from the defilement which opens them up to the influence of dark forces from the hellish regions. I have shared that even in “Paradise” (the lowest region of the heavenly realms) there is still many lessons to be learned by spirits and weaknesses and imperfections to be sanctified, but this does not mean that these spirits still have open doors to evil influence. That cannot be for this realm. In this realm (Paradise) most spirits are still dealing with the repercussions of past evil influence on their spirits, they are not still subject to such influence. In New Jerusalem and in Mt. Zion, even those things have been sanctified.
As always, ask the Lord if these things be so.
