KNOWING THE REALMS, Part 2 "Where's The DOOR?"

       Hello and Blessings from Dewayne and I!  We thank you so very much Covenant Partners and Friends of JCM for making this Teaching available to others and at no cost!  We are praying for you and speaking The Word over you and your families daily! 



       Before we get into the Teaching, let's address something that is on a lot of people's minds.  And you should have heard about it and maybe even experienced seeing it!  And that is the Total Solar Eclipse that took place on the 21st of August 2017.  If you have followed this Ministry, you know that we have done many studies on the Signs of The Lord's Return and of The Rapture of The Church.  So, what everyone is wanting to know is, Is this Total Eclipse a Sign that Jesus is Coming?  Well, as we always do, let's go to The Word of God. 
       In Matthew 24, The Lord Jesus was asked by His disciples, “As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately.  “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Matthew 24:3 (NIV)  Then, Jesus begins to give them and us great details to answer their specific questions of when will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age? And one of the specifics Jesus stated was that “. . . the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; . . .” (Verse 29).  Also, we find in another place in The Word very specific details and an explanation of the Time to which it is describing. 

"And I will cause wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below - blood and fire and clouds of smoke. 20 The sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood red BEFORE that great and glorious day of the Lord arrives." Acts 2:19-20 (NLT)


       The Word is definitely letting us know that there will be Signs that will happen for us to know the Seasons of The Lord.  No one knows the day or hour of The Lord's return, but there is very much in Scripture to tell us what the "Season" will look like when He comes.  That's what Jesus is describing to His disciples in Matthew 24!  He is answering their very specific questions.  Jesus WANTS us to know WHAT THINGS WILL LOOK LIKE BEFORE HE COMES!  And Matthew 24:3,29 and Acts 2:19-20 both describe the Sign of the sun and the darkening of it being BEFORE the Lord arrives.

       Now, what is very incredible is that the Solar Eclipse this Month was across the United States of America!  And that there is another Total Solar Eclipse that is expected to go across America again in 2024 . . . 7 years later!  The timing of this is essential to understand.  On the Hebrew Calendar, which is the Calendar that was given to man by God, is a very important and holy time that is adjacent to this amazing event of the Total Solar Eclipse! (The Calendar that we go by here in the Western part of the World is called the Gregorian Calendar. Not God's appointed Calendar)  The Total Solar Eclipse was on 21 August 2017 and two (2) days later on 23 August 2017, the Time of God began called ELUL!


Total Eclipse & Time of ELUL

       We will be entering two days after the Total Solar Eclipse into the Wonderful Season of The Lord!  And it is the set apart Repentance Time that The Lord gives us and it's called ELUL.  The Time of ELUL prepares us for the New Year that is getting ready to change on God’s Calendar. (Not the New Year that we have in January here in the US, which is on the Gregorian calendar we follow in the western part of the World.)  ELUL, the very crucial and intimate time on God's Calendar, began on the Sunset of 23 August 2017 through the Sunset of 20 September 2017 w
       ELUL means “to search” and “to repent.”  It is also known as “The Month of Repentance,” “The Month of Mercy” and “The Month of Forgiveness.”  The letters of E-L-U-L can be understood as an acronym for the Hebrew verse Ani L'dodi V'dodi Li--"I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine." (Song of Solomon 6:3)  During this time of year we are to reflect deeply and intimately on what we have done wrong in the past year and ask God to forgive us.  We are also to search ourselves and make decisions to do the sometimes difficult act of granting forgiveness to others and asking for forgiveness from others also.  ELUL is the time when one searches one’s heart and draws close to God preparing for The Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur.  
       ELUL is also the Time of Year when Brides prepare themselves for their Wedding Day literally all over the World!  Special cleaning of the Brides, Treatments and Bridal Preparations are performed by Brides at this specific Time of the Year.  And yet spiritually, ELUL is when The Bride of Christ is to CLEAN HERSELF for Her Bridegroom, Jesus too!  The Church, The Bride of Christ is to REPENT and clean Herself during the Time of ELUL.  Jesus, The Bridegroom is coming for a Bride without a Spot or Blemish!  And the ONLY WAY to get clean and bathe Church is to Repent!

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9 (KJV))


ELUL is our time set apart by God on His Calendar to clean ourselves up!  ELUL is a set time for "Wedding Preparations" for The Bride!  Hear that with your spirit Bride of Christ!  He’s Coming For A Bride without a spot on Her!  It’s Time To Take A Bath Bride!  AND THIS TIME OF REPENTANCE BEGAN TWO DAYS AFTER THE TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE THAT HAPPENED ACROSS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!  And if ever there is a TIME for The United States of America to REPENT it is NOW!  So, to answer the question, is this a Sign of God?  . . . Biblically He said He would use the Sun, a darkened Sun to show us the Time of his "arrival" and the Time of Matthew 24 . . . Then, of course, He is using the Sun to show us things to come!  And then, He gives us a "Time" to REPENT.  It's Time America!  It's Time World!  Repent!  Repent!  Repent!

       Now, if you are reading this and you know that you are NOT WHERE YOU NEED TO BE WITH GOD, then here’s some really good news for you!  If you are away from The Lord Jesus there’s still time for you to turn and repent to God.  He loves you and has so much for you and your precious life!  It's not too late to get things right and repent!  And it is the most incredible time of year to do just that!
       So, why don’t you begin right now to get things right with God?  There are some wonderful things that He has in store for you, but you have to surrender to Him to walk in them, friend.  Why don’t you do that right now.  Believe with everything in you and speak out of your mouth these words,

“Lord Jesus, You and I both know that I am away from You.  I stop right now and I make the decision to give You my life entirely.  I surrender to You Lord!  I leave my past and my sins and I ask You to forgive me of them. (Take some time to just repent right here.)

“Please come into my life and change it and do something with my life.  I am ready to follow Your Plan that you have for me.  I make You, Jesus, The Lord of my life.  Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit and Power in Jesus Name!”


       If you said that prayer and meant it with all your heart, you are now Born Again and in right standing with God!  Let us know here at JCM, we want to send you some Resources Free and postage paid to help you on your way with the Lord!  Praise The Lord!



       Last Month we spoke about a Place that is a Realm that exists.  And it is a Place that is amazing in so many ways.  There is no way we can recall all of the Truths of last Month, so if you don't have July's Teaching Letter, please let us know and we will send it to you postage paid.  Yet, here is just a few things we learned. 

       Faith is made of things and has an existence. Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  Hebrews 11:1 (NIV) “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”  Faith is made out of what we believe and what we speak from what we believe.  You and I must BELIEVE FIRST, then put action to what we believe, by speaking it out loud.  And when you believe and then speak from what you believe, YOU form A SUBSTANCE.  You form an EVIDENCE, a matter, a confirmation, a stuff, a proof.  When a Believer speaks what they believe in The Word and keeps believing and doesn't doubt, believes they received when they prayed and keeps standing, he or she has a LEGAL RIGHT to possess what they are exercising their Faith for!  YOU CREATE A SUBSTANCE or an EVIDENCE of THINGS HOPED FOR and that you are CERTAIN OF!

       Boy, that is a lot that was written!  And you and I must truly get this Truth.  Now, we have to go over again, that there is a PLACE that this SUBSTANCE that you are creating by faith IS AT!  The Living Bible Translation tells us in Hebrews 11:1, “It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.”  So, WHERE IS that which we hope for AT?  This SUBSTANCE that you are forming by Faith is being stored and kept SOMEWHERE.  It's in a location, a place, a Realm or a Site . . . yet, it's in a Place THAT IS UNSEEN.  

The PLACE Of The Unseen


       The Bible talks about this PLACE that is Unseen.  Just a few places are found in Hebrews to which God, Himself would use His Faith to form what we SEE now.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are SEEN were NOT MADE of things which DO APPEAR.” Hebrews 11:3 (KJV)

       The Lord MADE EVERYTHING by His Faith!  He believed in His Heart and Confessed with His Mouth what HE BELIEVED.  And what was made was created OUT OF THINGS THAT WERE NOT SEEN AT ONE TIME!  "Things" that we see now" were not made of things which do appear."  The "things" were MADE into a SUBSTANCE that you can see now.  And everything that was created came from the PLACE that did not appear or could be seen.  And let us see in Hebrews 11:3 that the "worldS were framed."  So, we are speaking of another Place other than the World we live in.  And Ephesians 6:11-12 tells so clearly of this Unseen World. 
“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:11-12 (NLT)
       This Unseen World is a Place that is amongst us, Church!  It's where our Angels are.  It's where there is great war going on between our Angels and the demons that try to affect us.  It's a Place that the enemies of The Church in the spirit realm are trying to KEEP THE THINGS THAT WE ARE HAVING FAITH FOR to stay IN THAT UNSEEN REALM and trying to PREVENT THEM FROM MANIFESTING INTO THE SEEN REALM!  It's a Place that when you and I speak "the word of God" by faith (Hebrews 11:3), our words go into that Unseen World or realm and go to work for us!  

"So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11 (AMPC)


       Isaiah tells us that when we are speaking by faith that what we speak is sent to work and makes happen what we are believing and speaking to.  So, our words are going somewhere and producing, constructing and bringing into being things for us.  We also see the word, "return" in Isaiah 55:11.  Our words "goes forth" to a Place and "return" from a Place.  Yet, if we are believing NEGATIVE and are SPEAKING NEGATIVE we will also cause a "return" to come back to us that we really don't want to receive!  SO MUCH is taking place in this Unseen realm!

The DOOR To The Unseen

       Beloved, as said before the Unseen Realm is a Place and it is a Place that is around us.  There is MUCH going on around us in the spirit Realm in this Unseen "World."  And one of the most incredible things that The Lord showed me about this Unseen Realm is that there is A DOOR FROM ONE REALM TO THE OTHER!  THERE IS A "DOOR" FROM THE SEEN REALM TO THE UNSEEN REALM!
“Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.” Psalm 141:3 (NIV)

       Yes Church, what is the opening from the Seen Realm to the Unseen Realm?  Our mouths or our lips!  So, in case you really wasn't sure if what you believe and are saying from what you believe matters . . . read Psalm 141:3 AGAIN!  Each time you speak, your "DOOR" is opening up from ONE REALM TO ANOTHER REALM and affecting what is going on in BOTH REALMS!  Born Again Believers are the ones who have the Authority here on Earth.  Jesus gave us His Authority before He left and then sent His Holy Spirit and Power to us.  Whether we agree or believe it or not . . . WE are creating here.  The DOOR of our mouths are opening and producing.  And the DOOR of our mouths are in one Realm of the Seen, yet our words are going into the Realm of the Unseen.
