Back in 1990, Benny Hinn wrote a book titled: “Good Morning Holy Spirit”. Many people were introduced to the Holy Spirit as they read this book. They learned his ways, how to reverence him, and know him as a friend. It brought me to another level, understanding that he truly desires to walk with us and talk to us, and we simply needed to yield to him and listen for his voice. This is the key to that personal relationship with him.
He spoke about an encounter with God that he had in his room when he was a young man that changed the course of his life. He said it seemed as if his room was lifted into the atmosphere of heaven, and he wanted to stay there forever. After he came out of his room, his parents couldn’t understand what was happening to him because he could hardly communicate with them while under that heavy anointing.
I have had such a stirring in my Spirit the past few days about what the Lord is about to do. I understand that it’s a dark season and everything that can be shaken is being shaken. I also understand that in the natural it appears as if we are surrounded by enemies at every side, but I also see people who have a hunger for God and are learning to walk in sync with Jesus. They are learning to connect through intimacy with him.
There is a bicycle built for two known as a “Tandem bicycle”. It features two seats, two sets of pedals, and two sets of handlebars so that the two riders can ride at the same time. The person in the front seat is known as the captain. He should be the stronger and more experienced of the two since he’s responsible for shifting the gears, balancing, steering, and braking the bike.
The captain determines where the bike is heading and watches for accidents and any potential dangers ahead. The person in the back seat is called a stoker and sometimes referred to as the navigator. The stoker doesn’t have to steer but they are expected to follow along and keep up with the peddling. There has to be teamwork with a tandem bicycle. They must work together for the bike to move.
One day I saw a man and his young son riding a tandem bicycle in my neighborhood. I noticed that the father in the front seat was peddling slowly for the safety of his son in the back seat. I watched as they moved together in synchronization. This is what the Lord is showing me.
He is calling us to a place where we could move in sync with Him. A place where we move in unison with Him. As He walks, we walk in step with him. As we grow, we pick up momentum. When we lay hands on people it will be as Jesus is laying hands on them. He lives inside of us and moves in synchronization with us.
As we sanctify ourselves, we will begin to understand the depth of this relationship that we could have with him. When we are filled with the Holy Spirit, our eyes are his eyes and our ears are his ears. As we speak, we are speaking forth with the wisdom and revelation of heaven. He’s calling us to come up to another level. As we connect to him, the words from heaven will flow from our mouths.
Jesus is inviting us into this place. The Lord says; As you come before me with a heart of consecration and a hunger in your soul, I will work wonders in you, through you and among you says the Lord.
John 14:16 – 17
And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever- The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
John 17:22 – 23
I have given them the glory that You gave me, that they may be one as We are one – I in them and you in me -so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
1 John 2:6
He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
