Sometimes we give up on the promises of God when they are delayed, because we believe the lie that we are under time. And time is a stubborn illusion.
The sun, moon and stars were created to divide day and night, for signs and seasons, for days and years (Genesis 1:14). The sun was created to rule the day and the moon to rule the night. And yet, His glory is above the heavens, and He has given us dominion over all that He has created (Psalm 8).
“The sun shall no longer be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you; But the Lord will be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory. Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself; For the Lord will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be ended” –Isaiah 60:19-20
All of creation fell out of proper alignment when Adam sinned. But as mature sons of God, we are in proper alignment with Him – fully submitted, under authority yet in authority. From our place of dominion where we are seated with Christ in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:5-6), we are bringing all things back into alignment – all things are being restored!
When Jesus’ flesh was torn, the veil in the Temple was torn. The veil in the heavenlies – between the dimensions – was torn. The veil separating us from other dimensions and from God was removed. This is the unity that Adam walked in and that Jesus Christ gave us back.
So, through our oneness with Christ, we enter a higher dimension through the portal of praise, worship and intercession. In that place, we are outside of time. Led by the Spirit of God, we can bring alignment to the stars – the seasons, which in turn manifests in the time realm. By operating from a dimension higher than time, we can bring back seasons, time can be redeemed and our youth can be renewed (Psalm 103:5).
It is no coincidence that God took Abraham (a Chaldean, who understood the stars) outside to look at the stars when He made a covenant with him promising him descendants (Genesis 15:5). Hagar gave birth to Ishmael. And time passed – 13 years. God appeared to Abram again, reminded him of His promise to give him descendants, this time specifically mentioning that it would be through Sarai, “at this set timenext year.” God appeared to them again saying, “I will certainly returnto you according to the time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son” (Genesis 18:10) and “Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed timeI will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son” (Genesis 18:14). Then, sure enough, the Lord visited Sarah exactly as He had promised, and “Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set timeof which God had spoken to him” (Genesis 21:2).
So, through faith we overcome the illusion of this world, this dimension and this created thing called time.
“And this is the victory that has overcome the world (this dimension) – our faith” –I John 5:4
