I am standing with the Lord in front of a thick foliage covered door. It had deep etched panels in it, but it was so thickly covered by vines that you would hardly notice it if you were not looking for it. I wondered why it was so thickly covered. The Lord said, “This is the Door to My Life, and few find it, even in your day.” I said, “Lord, why do we not find your doors? Why aren’t we able to step into the fullness of your life?”
Jesus said, “Many will not enter into My Life that is available to them, because they do not want to exchange their lives for Mine. Many want Me on their terms, but they do not want Me fully on Mine. I am the Life given for all men, but not all men want to pay the price to walk in Mine. This is why most do not walk in the fullness of what I have provided for them and have planned for them. Its time this changes in your day. I want My People to live in My Life now. Come, let’s go in.”
Jesus turned and opened the heavy door, and we went into the most brilliantly lit realm that I have ever been in. I could not see at first and had to wait for my eyes to adjust. Soon I could see green rolling hills, lush trees, flowers of every kind and fragrance, tall waterfalls, and many birds. I was amazed at these tiny colorful birds that immediately came over to Jesus and began to dart all around Him singing happily. Jesus laughed and said, “Hold out your hands.” I held out my hands and the little birds flew over to me and sat in my hands. I asked, “What kind of birds are these?” Jesus said, “These are love birds.”
“Love birds,” I asked. “Yes,” Jesus said. “You cannot walk in My Life without also walking in My Love. I am Life and I am Love. Life and Love flow together. You cannot love someone without also imparting life. You cannot impart My life to others without truly loving them with My Love. Everything here operates from My Love and from My Life. That is what I want you to do on the earth. It’s time for My Life and My Love to flow in the earth. This reality here is also to be your reality on the earth as you walk with Me. You are now learning to love on the earth, but its time to learn to walk in the fullness of My Life.”
“The world is looking for My Reality. They will see Me within you even more when you release My Life wherever you go. I want you to live your life fully in Me. I want My Life lived fully within you. When you live your life within Me, then I will flow freely in all that you do and are. When My Love and My Life are seen functioning in the earth, the nations will come to inquire of Me. It’s time to come up higher and trade your life in for Mine. It is time that the desire of the nations comes unto Me, so that I can lift them higher into My Desire. I am going to ignite your generation’s heart with My Love’s fire. ”
Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and spacious broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it. But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) and the way is straitened compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it.
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have enjoy , and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
You will show me the path ; in Your presence is fullness joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
1 Thessalonians 4:1
Furthermore, brethren, we beg and admonish you in [virtue of our union with] the Lord Jesus, that [you follow the instructions which] you learned from us about how you ought to walk so as to please gratify God, as indeed you are doing, [and] that you do so even more and more abundantly [attaining yet greater perfection in living this ].
And you are in Him, made full having come to fullness [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head all rule and authority [ every angelic principality and power].
For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
