We Are The Chariot of God
Sometimes I just want to remove all earthly limitations and let my spirit soar in the heavenlies. I want to live free to be who I am in God. I believe that true freedom is a longing that is integral to our very beings. Many of us have a sense that we are in this world but not of it. We strenuously hide this notion though, because we are afraid of what people will think. Rarely, if ever, do we allow ourselves to rise above the mundain to be who really are.
However, I ask you, “why do we pretend to be other than we truly feel? Is it really that wrong to wake up and become lucid?” What do all these people who look askance really mean to us in the long-run? Why do we allow their negative thoughts to become our intellectual prisons? Frankly, I am simply tired of it. I want to be free to explore the limits of what I can comprehend. I suspect, if you are honest with yourself, you do too.
We must disengage our natural minds to understand God’s spiritual plan
When we are natural minded we tend to focus on the practical things of life; i.e. what to eat, where to sleep, and what to wear. It’s like looking at life through a magnifying glass: everything seems so close and you can’t see beyond what’s immediately in front of you. However, when you are in the Spirit, you realize truths that span ages rather than days.
The truth is, we are not the first of God’s creations. There are many other things that God has been doing throughout the eons. Our present creation is like an instance of time and space contained within “forever”. We know the angels preceded our world for they the sons of the morning. There are two other classes of beings that are not of this world too: cherubim and Seraphim.
The chariot of God
Cherubim carry God. These holy beings move with the speed of God’s thought and are, like the angels, servants of the most high. You first see them in Eden. Next, we see them on insides of the walls of the holy of holies of the tabernacle in the wilderness. They are literally embroidered into the fabric that makes up that moveable house of God. However, though they dwell with God, they were only visible once a year. Every year, on the day of atonement, when they high priest offered blood and incense, the very essence of God, His Shekinah glory, illuminated the holy of holies, revealing many cherubim.
We are the companions and confidants of God, born of another creation. Dwelling in the midst of the throne of the Most High, we go where God wills, carrying Him throughout eternity to new creations of His Spirit. Right now we are here, working with Him, to bring forth this creation and it’s inhabitants into the fold of heaven. Once that is accomplished, we will return with our Father, from whence we came.
Class and purpose
Each class of created being has their function and purpose. Angels are God’s messengers. Cherubim lift up, support, and carry God. Seraphim guard and minister to His holiness. Mankind is to be God’s wife and bring forth after our kind. Every creation of God, throughout eternity, becomes part of the pantheon of His Logos.
When you realize that we are not of this creation, you understand that God has a broader plan in place, the scope of which is as infinite as He is. While those who know not God focus on the here and now, those who dwell with Him understand the significance of a greater existence and purpose.
This world and all that is therein will not continue because Satan tainted it with his sin, therefore it is slated for destruction. Right now, we are busy filling the ark of God with His people, so that when the inevitable happens, we will simple fly away and be quit of this Earth forever.
The grand Illusion
Mankind, like us, has their position with God. Though the fallen one tried to derail that, our Father sent His son to put manking back on track to eternity. We are destined to become one with Him and to give our Bridegroom children. This is our destiny and it is a glorious future.
The world is like that picture to the left. Most people see the beautiful young woman. Yet, what is really there is a picture of a old, haggared lady. Likewise, what we are taught to see of this world is an illusion at best.
Everything in the world is geared to obscure who we are and what God desires to give us. We are created a little lower than the angels but destined to be crowned with glory like queen Esther was. Everything we see with our natural eyes shall not endure. We are slated for glory, it is our birthright as children of the Most High. The mystery of the church is deeper and broader than we can possible imagine, a plan that spans eternity.
We are so much more than we seem
We are not mere animals that perish when we die and cease to exist. We are eternal beings, infinitely deep and complex like our Father. No matter what we look like on the outside, in the eyes of heaven, we are precious. Our spirits are capable of things that we do not yet comprehend. The liar and deceiver of our souls wants us to believe that what we see with our natural eyes is all there is, but there is so much more.
In conclusion, we are more than what we seem. You know it, I feel it, we all sense it. While the Devil tries to deceive and blind us, the light of the Almighty continues to penitrate our hearts, illuminating the truth. All that we need do is to believe. Our work, while here on Earth, is to love God and submit to His will. As children of the most High our calling is to simply be what He created us to be. Let us keep our first estate and conform to His desire, trusting Him in everything we do.
Finally, our Father promises,
“For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.”
The reason that we connect with song is that it is true in a way that we do not yet comprehend
