We Feel That Love Is Eternal, And We Are Right

Picture ourselves standing in front of a great living masterpiece, infinite in dimension, but viewing is from only six inches away. We see rather clearly what is right in front of us, a bit around our peripheral vision, but are unable to grasp the grandeur and actual point of what God paints. It literally takes the Spirit of God to pull us back and give us His perspective.

I feel like I am standing under a waterfall of Rhema these days. Sometimes, like the priests at the dedication of Solomon’s temple, I can hardly stand it. I sense I am present at the dedication of a greater than Solomon’s temple. i.e. the Body of Christ. The refreshing is both awesome and frightening at the same time.  As God translates me, I see more of the breadth and depth of His plan, however, at the same time I realize how utterly wrong we have been about so many, many things.

Visions of paradise

Therefore, I understand, more and more, why Paul said,

“How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.”

2 Corinthians 12:4

Thankfully, most of the revelations God is giving I can share, and only a relatively few are unlawful to speak of.  This one has to do with what the movie “Titanic” tells us about eternal love.

There is an innate sense of a greater, timeless reality. We strive to recreate immortality all the time in written word, music, and movies.  In fact, we are preoccupied with the eternal.  We feel unfairly bound by the fourth dimension.

When you listen to music, such as “my heart will go on”, sung by Celine Dion, we instantly identify with the sentiment expressed.  It is simply a universal feeling that love does not stop, but will transcend anything.  Like  portrayed in the movie “Titanic”, something deep within us “knows” that love is forever.

God is love

The fact is, love is eternal because God is eternal.  Beyond this creation there exists a place, called heaven, where love never ceases.  It is a place where, when you hold someone, you hold them forever. The point of the movie “Titanic” is that love transcends anything, even death.

When you listen closely to this song, it attempts to reach, create, and portray a place where our hearts go on, where we are one with the ones we love.  In fact, “My Heart Will God On” is so successful precisely because it is true.  Celine connects with that part of us that still knows we are timeless.

The devil lies to us that there is nothing beyond this world when, in fact, everything and everyone important is beyond this place.  When you look at someone and recognize them like you’ve known them forever, it is, amazingly true.  It is not re-incarnation, like false religions teach, but one eternal incarnation, by one omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient God.

Pre-existence is not only for Christ

The realm of God’s Spirit is eternal in a way we cannot fathom with our nature minds.  In that place, we exist already, with God.  These four dimensions, which define and bind us now, are temporal and temporary. Satan, who lost perfection through sin, desperately wants to deny us our perfection.  With a malevolence not possible in this world, fallen lucifer desires to deny us the eternal love he rejected.

Like the love story in Titanic, our hearts go on,  and transcend this creation. The blood of Jesus Christ pays for our sins as we accept him as God’s son.  Jesus makes the way out of the snare of the evil one plain and available for everyone who dares take it.  Literally, Jesus is an open door into heaven which no man can shut.  It is that door I’ve been peering into lately.  Even through the merest crack, the vision of a life more abundant takes my breath away.

Our hearts transcend this creation

In conclusion, trust your hearts, because they do go on.  In fact, those whom God connects us with are not first time meetings, but re-connections of eternal relationships we already have. True love is re-connecting with heavenly mates.  It is a home-coming.  The revelation of God’s love, my friends, is far deeper than we realize.

As God says,

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”

1 Corinthians 2:9
