There is a period just before entering functioning manifest sonship.
- I just came out of mine a few weeks ago.
- In my case it lasted for many months, but then I didn’t know what was going on so I didn’t know how to cooperate with its purpose.
- It is a time period of experiencing a death and burial followed by a resurrection, ascension and sitting down on the throne in the City of Zion to reign with Jesus.
I HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS PATTERN / PROCESS REPEATEDLY OVER THE YEARS.
- This was the deepest experience of it that I have ever had.
- Many areas of personal lack that I couldn’t find solutions to.
- I experienced it after entering into eternity and before entering into manifest sonship.
- Another that I recently dialoged with experienced it just before entering into eternity and manifest sonship all at one time.
IT CAN BE ACCOMPANIED BY A STRONG ASKING OF THE QUESTION, “WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH ME?”
- The answer is that you wouldn’t be feeling like this if you weren’t on the right path.
- You are a son on the path to entering into functioning sonship and manifest sonship.
- The pain is caused by wrong thinking that has brought you to a place of painful lack in your life.
- Ego (a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance) has brought you to this place.
- You are dying to your ego.
- Jesus describes this process of dying as a pruning away of fruitless branches.
- The branches are thought patterns that result in lack instead of abundant provision.
- God removes those thought patterns allowing you to move into the abundant life that Jesus promised us.
- We die to ego and replace it with the Mind of Christ.
GOD IS A FATHER. HE LOVES HIS SONS. HE DISCIPLINES THOSE THAT HE LOVES.
- It hurts, but that discipline isn’t punishment.
- It is preparation, it is training for fully functioning manifest sonship.
THIS TIME OF DISCIPLINE IS THE EQUIVALENT OF THE PRESSURE EXPERIENCED JUST BEFORE GIVING BIRTH OR BEING BORN.
- It is followed by the joy of entering into the new life of functioning manifest sonship.
- Abundance in all areas of your life will begin to manifest.
A GOOD METAPHOR FOR THIS PROCESS IS THE JOURNEY THAT A CATERPILLAR GOES THROUGH ON THE WAY TO BECOMING A BUTTERFLY.
- The ground crawling caterpillar finds a place to become a chrysalis. This is a death to being a caterpillar.
- The chrysalis hangs there motionless. This is a burial.
- At the right time, when the burial has accomplished its purpose, the butterfly emerges. This is a resurrection.
- The butterfly pumps up its new wings and dries them in the sun. Then it flies away. This is an ascension to the throne.
A SISTER WHO WAS GOING THROUGH THIS PROCESS SHARED THAT SHE HAD BEEN ENCOUNTERING THE MOUNT OF TRANSFIGURATION FOR IMMORTALITY AND TRANSFORMATION.
DOES THE ABOVE DESCRIPTION OF THIS DIFFICULT TIME DESCRIBE YOUR CURRENT EXPERIENCE?
- If it does, then maybe this is where you are on your journey into functioning manifest sonship.
- If it does, then there is hope.
THIS TIME WON’T LAST FOREVER.
- Your time in the darkness of your tomb will soon be over.
- You will speed up the process by co-operating with it. Chose to give up old unfruitful thought patterns. Chose to put on the Mind of Christ.
- You will be resurrected and changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye.
- You will soar up on the wind with your new wings.
- You will reign as a functioning manifest son.
