Ro 5:15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
Grace is the superhuman labor of God. The gift by grace is “dorea”. This is the absolutely free, without strings, unlimited, extravagant nature of a gift. The superhuman labor of God, grace, is given so that we can enter into the breakthrough anointing which is the modus operandi of God’s kingdom .
His kingdom is always found in the next step into the future. The future is not always something days and months later. The future is the next second in time. The kingdom of God is always before you. It’s in a parallel universe or parallel places. One is an earthly place and one is a heavenly place. Both places are there for you and me. One is dictated by what we see. The other one is dictated by what the Spirit of God tells you to do.
The places whether earthy or heavenly, are accessed by performing an act, any act, according to circumstances, or by what the Spirit tells you to do. Every time that we chose to obey the Spirit and step into the future, the breakthrough is there. The free gift by grace is also there. The breakthrough progressively takes you more and more into the abundance and extravagance of the heavenly place.
Ro 5:17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
“Grace”: (God’s superhuman labor) functions in excess and abundance. Grace is not cheap. Grace is given as you obey and step out of the boat into the waters of faith. Grace is God’s breakthrough anointing given to you so that you can step into and live in heavenly places. Grace, or the breakthrough anointing, will always precede you, and allow you to break into a heavenly place if you are willing to obey.
There, is the excess. There, is the dorea, or the free and extravagant gift of God displayed. It’s in the heavenly place.
Mt 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance (perisseuoo): but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
Who ever receives by faith enters into a state of excess or abundance. The excess of abundance is the default position of God’s kingdom found in heavenly places. God’s kingdom operates from moment to moment as the Christian learns to access heavenly places. God’s kingdom is always found in a heavenly place.
This is the anointing of mustard seed faith. Mustard see faith naturally functions in heavenly places.
As to state of our most innermost being, our reality, we must breakthrough into a heavenly place where it is natural to function out of the abundance which faith brings out of that place. Heavenly places are places of extravagance and abundance . Mustard seed faith is the faith which multiplies our ability to receive things exponentially in heavenly places. The abundance of things are already in the heavenly place. The anointing of mustard seed faith allows you to press into and receive them.
God responds more to faith than to need. He responds more to the abundance of what we press into than to the poverty and need of unbelief.
He responds to the child like faith that allows us to receive from Him before we can see it.
Rom 3:27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
Faith is a law. A law releases in specific circumstances, specific results.
2Co 10:15 Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men’s labors; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly,
Literal: When your faith grows, by it, we will come into a place of abundance in all the things of God. There is a rule or principle of abundance found in heavenly places.
Mat 14:19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
Literal: They were filled or fully satisfied. (Aorist/ passive). The Aorist tense is defined as a photograph of a completed event on the time line of history. The passive describes a state of being or of existence.
They took up (airo): to lift or carry something up.
That remained; Periseuoo- excess, overflow and abundance.
These scriptures describe an important scriptural principle. By faith we can breakthrough into a realm of spiritual reality which obtains abundance and excess as pertains to the things of the kingdom of God. The abundance and excess are found in heavenly places.
Jesus gave them the food and what was left were abundant remains of fragments of food. Jesus did the miracle in a heavenly place. The abundant remains is a physical manifestation of what is a heavenly place.
What the Lord gives to us, we must receive it in a spiritual realm of excess and abundance. This is how the mysteries of the kingdom of work. This is the anointing of mustard seed faith. We make it grow by knowing that everything which God gives to us is supposed to be increased and multiplied by us into abundance and excess, because it is already in a heavenly place.
Matt 15:20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
Literal: Good slave and one who believes. This is why he was a good slave, because he was faithFULL, or full of faith. His faith had caused him to double what Jesus had given to him. This is mustard seed faith anointing. The doubling or multiplying occurs in heavenly places.
I will make thee ruler ( kathisthemi: Taking authority over something which is standing)
The good and believing servant had pressed through into receiving an additional five talents by obeying Jesus in the heavenly place. He accessed them in the heavenly place of obedience.
This is now his point of authority. He had taken authority over the original 5 talents which had stood before him and now had gotten another 5.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
Literal: To the one living in a realm of the heavenly places, shall be given (passive.)
The passive voice talks about realm, state or reality. The one who has shall live in heavenly places shall live in a realm of being given more, and more, until he has an excess and abundance.
This is Paul’s rule of abundance in Corinthians.
This is also in the passive voice. To the one who lives in a realm of having, God will place him in the realm where He gives more to the individual, because God is attracted to his faith and obedience. This realm of giving by God will be in the realm of the exceeding abundance. It becomes a way of life for that believer, if he lives by the anointing of mustard seed faith which naturally functions in heavenly places.
The abundance occurs in heavenly places. God always functions in a breakthrough anointing. The breakthrough comes by moment by moment obedience. The breakthrough comes in seeing things in the Spirit and not as they seem to the human eye. Faith appropriates the future . The breakthrough comes as one step into the heavenly places which make up God’s kingdom.
Luke 9:16 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude.
17 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained ( in abundance) to them twelve baskets.
The abundance is found in the breakthrough, in the places of God’s kingdom.
The stepping into, occurs from moment to moment, from act to act, and choice by choice of our obedience. You do this over and over until it become natural to step into and live in heavenly places.
The heavenly places function without dimensions and limitations. Your ability to receive from them is in the extravagant. Things begin to multiply in heavenly places. The key is a continual breakthrough anointing given to you so that you may get access to the heavenly place with every breath you take. It’s a moment by moment, choice by choice act to obey the Spirit of God.
The breakthrough anointing always precedes the heavenly place. The breakthrough anointing takes you into the heavenly place. If we say that we want the breakthrough but will not step into heavenly places, you lie to yourself.
The more you step into the heavenly place, the more that the preceding breakthrough anointing will become evident to you. This is why the Christian life can never be passive. It is meant to be a continual lifestyle of breaking into heavenly places by the breakthrough anointing which precedes it. It’s a lifestyle of breakthrough.
A renewed mind is one which longs more and more to break into the parallel running heavenly places in every instance of life.
What dwells in heavenly places is in the excessive abundance. It’s like the rod of Moses turned into a snake. The rod of Moses is the rod of breakthrough. The rod of breakthrough opens the door into the heavenly place.
We must ask God for a breakthrough in our thought patterns. We must get out of our normal thinking patterns. God is “atypical” by our standards in the operation of His thinking and acting. Jesus transformed water into wine, He passed through the crowd that was going to kill him, and walked through the walls of a locked home to meet his disciples after His death.
The passing through the crowd, or walking through the walls, signifies bursting through into the breakthrough dimensions of heavenly places.
It’s the ability not to use our minds to look at circumstances, but accessing the next moment, then future parallel moment of God’s kingdom found in the heavenly place and stepping into it.
John 6:11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
“When they were filled” Literal: After they were satiated…then they gathered up in excess! Can you see this? Satiated and excess, in the Spirit, are laws in the kingdom of God. They are the default position of heavenly places. Jesus performed the miracle in the heavenly place. Natural places would not allow Him to do what He did. If Jesus had not chosen to step into the heavenly place which the Spirit of God told Him, the miracle would have not occurred.
13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled (Gemizo) twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
Filled: (Gemizo) replete, covered over. This word gemizo is found in Rev 4:6 describing the abounding number of eyes upon the living beasts.
Re 4:6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full (gemizo) of eyes before and behind.
To him who has, more will be given. To Him who steps into heavenly places, more will be given until He operates out of excess and abundance. This abundance is covered over, chock-full, pressed down, and shaken together all in one instance after another of functioning in heavenly places.
This process can begin in an instance if our minds become free from a boxed up customary way of thinking to a transcendental and atypical thinking that goes beyond, over and through the closed doors of worldly circumstances, and into the breakthrough found in heavenly places.
Ac 16:5 And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.
Literal Greek: The church abounded into excess, arithmetically speaking, per meeting. Mustard seed faith in operation!
This is for the church which learns to function in the heavenly places of moment to moment obedience. Heavenly places are always places of revival.
Ro 5:15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded <4052> unto many.
Literal; We know about the 9 charismatic gifts of the Spirit in 1Cor 12.
Grace, or the superhuman labor of God, is likewise a charismatic gift. It is given freely as we access it to aid us in breaking into heavenly places. As with every other charismatic gift, it will be manifested in excess abundance by the anointing of mustard seed faith. The mustard seed anointing functions as a default in heavenly places.
Ro 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound <4052> in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Hope is expectation. We receive by expectation. Expectation is a charismatic gift that can be manifested in excessive abundance, by our faith. True expectation functions in heavenly places. We can receive excessively abundantly, by excessive abundant expectation, which is brought about by the excessive abundant grace or God’s superhuman labor all found in heavenly places.
1Co 14:12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel <4052> to the edifying of the church.
Paul commands us to have spiritual spiritual gifts in excessive abundance. Spiritual gifts operate in the excessive abundance in heavenly places.
1Co 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding <4052> in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
The works of God in the Spirit become excessive abundant in heavenly places.
2Co 3:9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed <4052> in glory.
The glory of God in heavenly places is transcendental and excessive abundant. We must enter that realm of glory found in heavenly places.
2Co 8:7 Therefore, as ye abound <4052> in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound <4052> in this grace also.
Press in into the realm and reality of excessive abundant faith, excessive abundant charismatic gifts, and excessive abundant giving of all sorts in heavenly places.
Php 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound <4052> yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
The love of God is a charismatic gift that transcendentally functions in heavenly places.
