The Axis Of Divine Tangibility Within The Subterranean Realm: Sermon By Minister Evans Ochieng
Then the Lord answered me and said, “Write the vision and engrave it plainly on [clay] tablets so that the one who reads it will run. “For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time. It hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, because it will certainly come; it will not delay.Habakkuk 2:2-3 (AMP)
So it was, when Jesus returned, that the multitude welcomed Him, for they were all waiting for Him. And behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue. And he fell down at Jesus’ feet and begged Him to come to his house, for he had an only daughter about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But as He went, the multitudes thronged Him. Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.
And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?” When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’” But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.” Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately. And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
While He was still speaking, someone came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, saying to him, “Your daughter is dead. Do not trouble the Teacher.” But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, “Do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be made well.” When He came into the house, He permitted no one to go in except Peter, James, and John, and the father and mother of the girl. Now all wept and mourned for her; but He said, “Do not weep; she is not dead, but sleeping.” And they ridiculed Him, knowing that she was dead.
But He put them all outside, took her by the hand and called, saying, “Little girl, arise.” Then her spirit returned, and she arose immediately. And He commanded that she be given something to eat. And her parents were astonished, but He charged them to tell no one what had happened.Luke 8:40-56 (NKJV)
So Balaam rose in the morning, saddled his donkey, and went with the princes of Moab. Then God’s anger was aroused because he went, and the Angel of the Lord took His stand in the way as an adversary against him. And he was riding on his donkey, and his two servants were with him. Now the donkey saw the Angel of the Lord standing in the way with His drawn sword in His hand, and the donkey turned aside out of the way and went into the field. So Balaam struck the donkey to turn her back onto the road. Then the Angel of the Lord stood in a narrow path between the vineyards, with a wall on this side and a wall on that side. And when the donkey saw the Angel of the Lord, she pushed herself against the wall and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall; so he struck her again. Then the Angel of the Lord went further, and stood in a narrow place where there was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left. And when the donkey saw the Angel of the Lord, she lay down under Balaam; so Balaam’s anger was aroused, and he struck the donkey with his staff.
Then the Lord opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, “What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?” And Balaam said to the donkey, “Because you have abused me. I wish there were a sword in my hand, for now I would kill you!” So the donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your donkey on which you have ridden, ever since I became yours, to this day? Was I ever disposed to do this to you?” And he said, “No.”
Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the Angel of the Lord standing in the way with His drawn sword in His hand; and he bowed his head and fell flat on his face. And the Angel of the Lord said to him, “Why have you struck your donkey these three times? Behold, I have come out to stand against you, because your way is perverse before Me. The donkey saw Me and turned aside from Me these three times. If she had not turned aside from Me, surely I would also have killed you by now, and let her live.”
And Balaam said to the Angel of the Lord, “I have sinned, for I did not know You stood in the way against me. Now therefore, if it displeases You, I will turn back.” Then the Angel of the Lord said to Balaam, “Go with the men, but only the word that I speak to you, that you shall speak.” So Balaam went with the princes of Balak. Now when Balak heard that Balaam was coming, he went out to meet him at the city of Moab, which is on the border at the Arnon, the boundary of the territory. Then Balak said to Balaam, “Did I not earnestly send to you, calling for you? Why did you not come to me? Am I not able to honor you?” And Balaam said to Balak, “Look, I have come to you! Now, have I any power at all to say anything? The word that God puts in my mouth, that I must speak.” So Balaam went with Balak, and they came to Kirjath Huzoth.Numbers 22:21-39 (NKJV)
An axis is a straight central part in a structure to which other parts are connected.
Divine tangibility is an organism consisting of millions of Divine elements to which many other parts are connected causing a believer to touch base with the nature of Christ.
It is one thing for you to say that you are ascending the prophetic mountain but it’s another thing for you to have an understanding of where God’s Divine Compass is directing you.
There is a place in the spirit where God is directing you where you can only get through prayer.
You need to perceive where you are supposed to be so that you do not stagnate. You might be in a spiritual environment but fail to perceive what is required of you or where you are in that environment.
There is a place of intimacy with God that you will not be able to attain to without having a personal altar with Him.
God speaks within the altar that you have built to relate with Him. Spiritual maturity is accessed through the depth of your personal altar.
You need to perceive the direction you are supposed to go in life and your spiritual walk.
Your relationship with God should be filled with wonder and newness everyday. Don’t put God in a box.
There’s a higher dimension that God wants us to relate with Him.
When you relate with someone, there is a dimension of Christ that you will be able to access that will benefit your configuration and purpose.
The Divine compass will always direct you towards Christ. He is the only way to the Father.
The Divine compass will enable you to travel faster than limitation. You can only quantum leap to the extent that you move in tandem with Kairos (God’s appointed time).
Quantum leaping is not about you. It’s for the glory of God and for His purposes. He will not move you into that which is yours for you eg: relationships, jobs, titles
Habakkuk 2:2-3 shows us that some things will take a while. God tests your ability to be resilient when things fail to come to pass according to your time.
A Kairos moment is God’s appointed time to act. We are not meant to miss Kairos moments in our spiritual walk.
It requires one to align to God’s perfect will thereby causing a shift in various aspects of their lives.
Perceive people aright. Your next level is tied to someone, some that you may know and others that you may not. Don’t easily dismiss people.
A Kairos moment is able to affect every aspect of your life. Ascending the prophetic mountain of worship is God preparing you for a Kairos moment. Worship creates an Eden in the spirit for a Kairos moment to occur i.e. God setting you up for a prophetic moment.
New experiences in God and in life are subject to the level of Divine tangibility that you attain to.
God asked Moses to remove his sandals at the burning bush so that nothing would hinder him from accessing his Kairos moment. What things are hindering you from accessing your Kairos moment? Do away with them so that you can access something new in God.
God will give you new experiences to help you understand an aspect of your spiritual configuration.
God is a God who gives and takes away. He cannot only be Lord when He says yes. He is also Lord when He says no.
We can gauge your maturity by how you handle yourself when God tells you “No” or “Wait”. Not when He tells you “Yes”.
Many times, God’s way only makes sense when you look back once you are further ahead and walking in your purpose.
Every ministry is vested with a cloud. This is where Divine reality, Divine presence and celestial beings find habitation.
It’s easy to be in a spiritual environment and miss out on the benefits of sitting under the nature of the house. It’s beyond the physical. This may be due to familiarity, failure to submit to spiritual authority or your lack of decorum with the things of God.
You will only draw forth your inheritance in God by sitting under a nature and being nurtured in the things of God.
You need to touch base with the reality of Christ in a particular person. When you fellowship with God more, you will understand people more.
You are able to quantum leap as long as you understand the boundaries of your configuration. This is why competition leads nowhere.
We need to touch base with realm of Divine tangibility. There needs to be a symphony of your mind, emotion and will so as to worship God.
A change in time and season necessitates spiritual relocation.
An event in your life may be of more significance to you than you realize. Don’t ignore the small events in your life. They may hold keys to where you need to be in light of God’s purpose for you.
Spiritual relocation will direct you to the Divine compass. It will take you out of apathy and lead you to Christ at the cross.
People fail to relocate spiritually because of familiarity with God and being accustomed to the status quo.
In them the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says, ‘You will hear and keep on hearing, but never understand; And you will look and keep on looking, but never comprehend; For this nation’s heart has grown hard, And with their ears they hardly hear, And they have [tightly] closed their eyes, Otherwise they would see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, and turn [to Me] And I would heal them [spiritually].’Matthew 13:14-15 (AMP)
“He said to them, “The mystery of the kingdom of God has been given to you [who have teachable hearts], but those who are outside [the unbelievers, the spiritually blind] get everything in parables, so that they will continually look but not see, and they will continually hear but not understand, otherwise they might turn [from their rejection of the truth] and be forgiven.” Then He said to them, “Do you not understand this parable? How will you understand and grasp the meaning of all the parables?”Mark 4:11-13 (AMP)
It is important to know that you are not all in all no matter how spiritual you are. God reveals things in part.
A locus refers to a position, locality, location, an emplacement, a locale or a point.
In other words, Divine tangibility is a connection to various aspects stitched into the fabric of your spiritual man that grant you access to the sub terrestrial realm. There are aspects stitched into the fabric of your configuration that grant you access to certain dimensions of God. Faith is all you need. It is a prerequisite to accessing Divine tangibility.
We need to cultivate the lifestyle of walking by faith and the voice of God i.e. His everyday now word to us.
Don’t try to customize your spiritual configuration because of fear and doubt. You will fail to access Divine tangibility.
Ministry is not limited to the pulpit. There is an aspect of ministry that you carry that God is looking to use.
The locality of Divine Tangibility is in the subterranean realm. Just as it was for Adam and Eve in Eden, it is an environment where we are able to fellowship with God.
The measuring scale for eternal relevance is Divine tangibility. You need to perceive and manifest it on earth in the home, workplace, schools, etc.
A person who is eternally relevant manifests the nature of God on earth. This is essentially sonship.
Sonship is manifesting the essence of Christ on earth. It is experiential and calls for you to further the kingdom of God here on earth.
Follow God’s footsteps through Christ’s life to know the template you should follow as a believer. Only His template will grant us access to the place where you need to be.
Divine Tangibility is about being able to shift according to the inherent power resident within you by virtue of the nature you carry.
Dunamis (a Greek word) can refer to “inherent power, power residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth”.
For us to perceive the inherent power we have, we need an expanded mindset.
When you understand your configuration, you will access dunamis. You need to have an expanded mindset that causes you to be bold enough to call forth our earthly designation.
We do not live the Christian life in our own power. We live it through God’s power. It needs you to be totally yielded to God’s purpose where your attitude, persona, heart, mind and in essence the whole of your being is under the oversight of God.
For you to draw out the weight of your dimension, exposure is required. This needs an environment. You need to be led into experiences that will cause your dimension to spring forth.
Sometimes, you need to face an aspect of suffering or giants for aspects of your configuration to manifest.
Outside of Christ, anything spiritual remains intangible. It is easy to be proud thinking you are spiritual only to find out that you are spiritually blind.
Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said to him, “Do you believe in the Son of God?” He answered and said, “Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?” And Jesus said to him, “You have both seen Him and it is He who is talking with you.”
Then he said, “Lord, I believe!” And he worshiped Him. And Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.”
Then some of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these words, and said to Him, “Are we blind also?” Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, ‘We see.’ Therefore your sin remains.John 9:35-41 (AMP)
God is calling us to the reality of having a relationship with Him. He wants us to perceive the shift that comes with every season.
It is time to ask ourselves why we do the things we do because it is possible to be very religious yet Godless.
When relationship, fellowship and communion with God is a priority in your life, you will never miss out on seasons that God is seeking to usher you into.
