The Process of The Secret Place
Jesus bled and died so that by his blood we might be reconciled to God. He tore the veil in the temple from top to bottom to give us access to the Throne here on earth. He had to ascend into heaven, to become our Cohen Gadol (High Priest), so that the Holy Spirit could come down and give us the Heart of God, or imputed righteousness. We are then lead into a process, a sort of spiritual "soaking", that transforms us, more and more, as we spend time in the presence of God. If you thought you said a prayer, got baptized and spoke in tongues a few times and that was it, you were wrong. Transformation into the image of Christ and wanting nothing more or less than the will of God takes time. It’s a process.
38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. Mark 15:38 (KJV)
If you think salvation was all avoiding hell when you die, your mistaken as to the reason Jesus came. So many times, in many churches, someone who is “saved” is taught many outward things they need to change in order to be “Christian”, “righteous”, or “holy”. By outward, I also mean behaviors like how to date or treat your spouse. What we don’t realize is, while that’s perfectly ok it’s also incomplete. Just as the Torah was incomplete without the Holy Spirit. The Spirit that allows divine transformation and renewal of the mind. The Spirit that gives us the Heart of God. We need the Heart of God because we have a job to do on earth and its not just win a bunch a souls so we can all huddle in a cave and wait for the rapture.
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. John 16:13 (KJV)
The process as I have experienced it
Your process WILL have parts that are different. I would not be so arrogant as to think I understand the mystery of intimacy with God (anyone who pretends they do, RUN). However, I want to get you excited about the process of the secret place! I want you to understand why Jesus always went away to pray at every possible moment He could. I look forward to time with God because I have glimpses into the WHY now more than ever.
I'm pretty sure this will be adjusted in the future but this 5 step process is what I have experienced:
Every revelation is not something to share or teach, sometimes it is just a whisper that revolutionizes your walk with God and your expression of the Kingdom here on Earth. I know there is more but that is the little bit I can explain.
This process repeats. It's an adventure into the deep.
