I like the Holy because the Holy will take you ABOVE natural life into the supernatural. Many avoid the supernatural because they don't go, or know how to go there in real life. But if you work at learning it in God, (and you will make some mistakes, but He will see you through if you are sincere), but if you are working at learning it IN God, you will find a lot of treasures and helps! Of course the Bible is our foundation.
Some of my biggest mistakes have put me on the solid ground to look up! Sometimes your number of friends may be less because not everyone around you wants to "go there," but you don't have to be "weird" to go there, or ritualistic. You just have to be real with God!
One thing that attracts people to this area of Moravian Falls and other areas known to be like it, is that there is a community of God seekers and some history. We are really not that *different* as much as we are a community area of believers. We don't even all think the same way!
One reason they call it an open heaven area here is because there is a lot less noise of the city and traffic, and people pray all over here so there are more angels going to and fro because they come in response to the prayers. But you can also qualify for bigger angels where you are! God will bring people and angels your way! It's good to mingle and share. That sharing is called koinonia.
A lot of people come here and learn how far they can go and then go off to their next assignments. They will come to get away from the distractions, and they will take the time to be with God! Even this area and the others like it have human problems. If we were a richer area, I think we would also have more traffic and noise.
But we need to learn how to develop that quietness and space for God to move in. The big city has a lot of good churches moving on in God. We get attacks here just like other places do because there is a resistance to the dominion of Christ, but LEARNING how to move forward in God, learning how to establish your boundaries, and finding quality avenues to learn and seek is what matters.
Commanding Your Territory
See, if God is first in you, then you realize that you have to command your territory, and that there will be some resistance because you are displacing the areas claimed by the fallen god of this world. But since generations of people have lived, they have learned some things and focus on those things in their personal lives and families. I was raised to be "a Christian" but I was not raised Pentecostal. I learned a lot of that because I was seeking! And I had to learn how to sort even that out in my thinking.
There are a lot of opinions on what you should do and how you should be! But I can also tell you that those are not necessarily taking you in to raise. And you have to be careful and wise about the ones who say they are. The true ones will give you a lot of liberty and will be wise enough not to compromise their holiness (what works for them in God). It's the boast in the flesh that snares many people.
JESUS said that to believe is work, BUT it is also REAL!!! Remember the 10 wise and foolish virgins? Half of them leaned on others, and the others had worked it out in their own souls. When the Bridegroom (Spirit) came to visit, they were ready! They were ready to go to the next levels. And while some just wanted "the perks," they couldn't receive them because they had not prepared themselves.
The good news is that those who move "up" in the Spirit will often come back to help others. But if they are not received, they will go on to be received by others who are willing to know and learn. We value our books and writings and videos and memories because they do help us carry on and move forward.
But things not treasured are often lost, so we have to keep that in mind. And not all "re-telling" of a Story will be accurate. You have to be a seeker, but the GOOD NEWS is that GOD knows where the treasures are that have been brought to earth and He will help you seek and find them! HE is not opposed to you even if some others seem to be. People have "run across" an article like this, an old book or tape or memory and found great treasure because they were seeking GOD.
He knew what they needed and their prayers for God's will activated the angels who are employed and are working to bring the Kingdom of God to pass!
We can look at an impoverished nation and see how far we in America have come and figure out that there was a lot of work and cooperation to make it happen. When we lose that congeniality, we lose progress too, and it is where the term "back sliding" comes from. They slid back!
When we learn there is power in agreement, we will see those clusters happen, but it becomes a stronghold of "religion" when we stop seeking and "just" agree. Then it becomes a social club, and people then take the honor and leadership that belongs to God.
Some of these clusters will work against the will and people of God! But God is not dead and He wants to help us and hopefully we will become even more prepared to take the path to where we want to go in Him, even if we are underground rivers for a season.
The only "expert" in God is God. He is determined to speak to us individually before He does so corporately. This is why prayer matters so much. Large groups will go flat when the individual encounters fail to thrive.
The more you cry out to God, the more you can have His encounters (and revelations). There is a peace that passes all understanding.
