We have to understand that to God everything is spiritual. The word, ‘physical realm’ is something that came as a result of the fall of man. Every realm of existence within eternity is spiritual including what we call the physical realm today.
When a spirit is placed in a particular realm to function or exist, the spirit will be in that realm, bodily making contact with that environment both with his spirit and body. Such spirit will be in the realm and the realm will be within the spirit. The day the spirit losses touch with the realm within him, he will no longer have the right to stay in that environment bodily.
This is what I am saying: the habitation of a spirit is within itself and the spirit itself is within its habitation. It’s a mystery!
Jesus says the kingdom which you seek is within you! We are in the kingdom and the kingdom is within us.
God Himself dwells within Himself. The heavens of the heavens cannot contain Him. What can contain a spirit like God? What can contain a man that is made in the likeness of Christ? The spirit of a man is the house of the man.
The world to come of which we speak is actually within the saint. That is why it is coming from God out of heaven. The world to come is in us as it is in God. When we allow the life within to be expressed, it is actually the city finding expression…
The city is dimensions of life within the new creation which is his habitation. The new creation is a dweller in the city of the living God… He is in the city and the city is written or mapped within him.
It is an experience and a reality to those who press into the revelation of His name (His person).
The substances of a spirit’s location are the same as the substances of his nature; in other words, a spirit and its location are ONE. Man and Eden were one before the fall. Fish and sea are one. Spirits and light are one. Light refers to created dimensions in the spirit. God is the Father of lights. He created lights (places) and causes lights to be inhabited by lights (beings).
There are different colours, fires, sounds and other spirit elements of which lights are made, therefore there are different classes of spirits at different dimensions within eternity… all created by God.
For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward…
The word spoken by an angel is not just his verbal utterances, but his reality and the experience he brings from the world wherein he inhabits. Every spirit that transgresses the law of his abode gets a just recompense of reward because it would mean that he has violated the law of his nature. He can no longer be accommodated therein, but would be kept in chains of darkness until the day of reckoning.
As fish dwells in water so do spirits dwell within dimensions of light as a natural habitat. They are made of the mysteries of that created light of God wherein they dwell. They contain the secrets of God embedded in their environment. A spirit is not greater than its environment… A spirit is not different from its environment. What a spirit is made of is where such spirit lives. The knowledge that a spirit bears is the knowledge of the created light of God in which it dwells.
The physical action of sending Adam out of the garden was a confirmation of an already completed spiritual process which was that Adam had already left his heavenly habitation as a spirit being, signified by the loss of his ‘clothing’, the glory of his spirit man. Spiritually, he had moved to a different environment by virtue of the alteration of the image within him.
The heavenly light materiality of his spirit man was lost and he had become dark. This means that he changed environment. His nature was no longer compatible with Eden. A spirit survives only in the environment of which it is made up.
A spirit with sin is located in death. A spirit that still retains his right standing with God is in life. Who you are in your personality is what determines where you dwell.
In Him we live and move and have our being… Why? This is because we are located in Him. He is our habitat. Our spirit is made up of Him. His things are the materials with which we are made. We are hid in Him.
2 Corinthians 5:18
And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
God keeps or hides things within spirits. Portions of His mysteries are hidden within celestial beings He created. They are designed to steward such mysteries for Him, unto Him. They live for Him.
The spiritual materials by which a being is fashioned are also the riches or treasures of such being. They are the make up of the personality of the spirit being.
A ‘throne’ being for example is so called because of the materiality of his make up. Some spirits are called ‘dominion’. What is the difference? It is the substance with which they are created. God made them and put their ‘pipes’ or instruments of service within them.
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
The scripture here gives us the picture of the spirit materials with which Satan was made.
The mystery(ies) of the realm of life which they possess is the secret of their peculiar heavenly nature and that is their name or operation (Judges 13:17-18). It is the glory with which they are decked. It is the same glory that they give back to God. With this glory, they serve the will of God at their level of life in eternity.
They shine the light of whom they are in the environment where they are placed and that is how they give glory to Yahweh. He is before them, and in the measure of their nearness to Him, they behold Him continually.
By Him they consist. By Him they live. He is the blesser and blessing of every creature.
Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones,
We are in Him that is true, and He is in us. Amen.
