Spiritual Blessings in the Heavenly Places

Ephesians 1 (KJV)

There are different levels in the ministry

  • Different levels of the ministry equal different levels of anointing (power)
  • We all don’t have the same depth in the Spirit
  • Depth in the Spirit comes from the knowledge of the word of God in spiritual experience
  • Knowledge + spiritual experience = an anointing or positions Ephesians 4:11

Knowledge must be based on the Word of God

  • Knowledge can puff up, must need knowledge in the word of God 1 Corinthians 8:1
  • We need knowledge of the word + spiritual experience
  • Trouble comes when one is looking for a spiritual experience without the knowledge of the word of God
  • We must have the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him Ephesians 1:17
  • It’s very dangerous to be a prophet and not know the Word of God, another spirit besides the Holy Spirit will be in operation
  • For this cause, many false profits are gone out into the world 1 John 4:1
  • The positions consist of apostles (bishops), prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers Ephesians 4:11
  • The Corinthian’s were carnal and we’re not qualified in this group of these different levels of anointings in the ministry 1 Corinthians 3:1-3, Ephesians 4:11

With God on our side and through it all, we will be found standing

  • You can be illuminated, but you must maintain that illumination and grow
  • You could lose that illumination
  • When you see others going through, be patient with them because you never know what is going to Come Your way Galatians 6:1-2
  • You will go through persecution, misunderstanding, disappointment, tribulation, and when all that is over you have got to be found standing 2 Corinthians 4: 8–10
  • Those things were meant to make you fall John 10:10
  • Those were curveballs from Satan
  • search nothing before the time, just wait, and give it time 1 Corinthian 4:5

Difference between the Jews & modern Christians is the Jews know who God is

  • Paul says, “God our father “Ephesians 1:2
  • The Jews never had a problem knowing who God is John 8:41
  • Today Christians have a problem believing who God is
  • Modern day Christians believe that Jesus is God
  • Reduce never had a problem differentiating between God and Jesus
  • The Jews had a problem with Jesus because Jesus made himself equal with God, and the Jews wanted to stone him John 5:18
  • The Jews know today who God is
  • When a believer is confused about their foundation and who God is, that believer will be confused about everything else concerning salvation, doctrine of God, etc.

There are two types of blessings

  • Spiritual blessings – you receive these blessings when you have a desire for them
    • Jesus said, “seek ye first the kingdom” Matthew 6:33
    • God wants to bless us with all spiritual blessings Ephesians 1:3
    • All the people in this verse must know about spiritual blessings Ephesians 4:11
    • Heavenly places = Means in the church Eph 1:3
      • This also could be in heaven Eph 1:20
      • The high places are also heavenly places Eph 6:12
      • The power of the Highest is the greatest power over those principalities and powers in Ephesians 6:12, Ephesians 1:19-21
      • Types of heavenly places in the CHURCH
        • Tuesday night corporate prayer and service
        • Choir rehearsal
        • Friday night corporate prayer and service
        • Sunday Christian education, morning and evening service
        • That’s why when you come to church, you get delivered, illuminated, healed, saved, and blessed
  • Natural blessings – material blessings

Fasting helps us to deny the world

  • Love not the world 1 John 2:15-17
  • While fasting, be careful of what you watch on TV and music you listen to
  • Fasting is a sacrifice and time off from the world
  • God wants to give you power
  • Jesus said, there is a reward for forsaking all and being persecuted Mark 10:28–30
