“Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights.  Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.  Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.  Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.  Let them praise the name of the Lord : for he commanded, and they were created." (Psalm 148:1-5). The heavens mentioned here are all the present heavens created by God. We clearly see the arrangements of these heavens from the heights. We see beings who are "angels" (spirits/cherubims - Ps. 103:20, 104:4a); to beings who are "hosts" (seraphims/ministers - Ps. 103:21, 104:4b); to beings who are "sun and moon" (a class of works in all places of His dominion - Ps. 103:22a); to beings who are "stars of light" (principalities and powers); and finally to beings in the "heavens of heavens'' just above the waters (Adams/O my soul - Ps. 103:22b). The beings in the "heavens of heavens" just above the waters are "sons of God".
The phrase "ye waters that be above the heavens" also talks about heavens below the waters. If waters are above the heavens, then it means these heavens are below the waters. This means there is a heaven on the earth with waters above it. This is the abode of men with the stature of the "sons of man".
The last realm below the "stars of light" is called the "heaven of heavens" because it is a vast realm with different strata. This means there are classes in the sonship of God concerning the Adamic order. In this realm, they have heavens with different classes of "O my soul" (Ps. 103:22b). The vast heavenly realms designed to be occupied by sons below and above the waters are currently occupied by Satan and his fallen spirits. The realm of spiritual wickedness in high places are dimensions above the waters. This is why Satan would kill prophets; it is because he does not want any contention in the air (Eph. 2:2).
The title of the glory of a man begins with the title "son of man" – designated below the waters. Isaiah to Malachi are all sons of men. Ezekiel and Daniel are also sons of men but they may be higher in status. These men are all "sons of men" but they are lower than the "sons of God" that are above the waters. The sons who are above the waters are in a heaven that is Christ. This means a son of man must pierce through the waters which is the veil, to move into a higher sonship of man which Genesis holds – sonship of Adams/O my soul/sons of God.
Man is expected to know about the heavens. David taught Solomon about the heavens because God needs a heavenly climate to dwell in any temple that would be built on earth. This is the only way the glory of God would come. Satan fears men with heavens because he fell from a superior heaven into an inferior one.
Adam trapped some heavens to be able to relate with God, even though he was made of the "earth, earthy" (1 Corin. 15:47). Adam was in the heaven of "O my soul" (Ps. 103:22). To be heavenly useful is not just to die as a Christian. A man can die as a Christian, go to heaven and still not be useful there. To be heavenly useful, you must carry some heavens inside you.
The idea of a man being "heavenly useful, earthly useless" is a lie that was sold to man so he can tabernacle here on earth. It is a curse from Satan with an evil definition – one that will not allow a man to ever raise his head to see God. What God is doing to defeat this evil definition is to give understanding to man. The word "understanding" means "to come under and stand". When God wanted to reduce Nebuchadnezzar to an animal, his understanding left, his hands fell to the floor and he crawled out of his palace (Dan. 4:31-33). It was when his understanding came back that he lifted up his head like a man (Dan. 4:34-37). In the realm of the spirit, we have souls that are crawling. It is a curse that can only be treated by teachings of truth. The chase of a man on earth is still a curse, no matter how glorious it looks.
A man needs grace to stand; this is the support he needs in order not to fall into the state of an animal. Grace comes through wisdom and understanding. When Scripture says "the just shall live by faith", it means the just shall stand upright and look up as a man, and no longer be an animal.
Heavens are courses for Christians. It is the inheritance of all Christians in the body. God has a heavenly mind that all Christians must learn. A time will come when Christians will be forced to learn about the heavens. After a while, some will regret not learning it earlier. The Church is not a solution center; its purpose is more than meeting our natural needs. This is why a local church should not be a means for a pastor to be rich; the church belongs to God.
We have to become little children to enter into the Kingdom; but to be the greatest, we would be humbled further (Matt 18:4). The more little a man becomes, the greater he is in the Kingdom. The little child is a lamb. Angels are lambs of the present age. Lucifer (now Satan) used to be a lamb.
The four living creatures are more of lambs; they have a lamb code that makes them beasts. "And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth." (Rev. 5:6). A being who is not a beast cannot come close to the throne of God. A lamb cannot have seven horns; only a beast can. The Lamb in the midst of the elders is not a normal lamb. He was already made a Beast by the Father. God trusts a beast more than a lamb. This is because a lamb can turn but a beast cannot. God was not yet satisfied with the Lamb, so He had to be 'slain'. The slaying is the birthing of the beastly nature. It was when He was 'slain' that the "seven Spirits" found expression. Slaying is the coding for the beastly nature.
A beast is not an animal that has wickedness; it is a mysterious and unreadable being. A beast is a being that carries many operations. It is possible that Satan studied the "four living creatures'' and then slew himself against God unknowingly. He could not slay himself towards God to become a beast, so he became a dragon (Rev. 12:9).
"Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind…" (Psalm 104:3). God used the "waters" here to separate the end of creation (as seen in Ps. 148:1-5) in order to begin the world of the Creator. God wants us to understand that those waters are the beginning of the world of the Creator – much higher than the clouds of creatures. That is why those cherubims cannot ascend there. The waters are too much for them to navigate because they are creatures. The waters that are above the clouds are another kind of heaven. Waters above the heavens are also heaven. However, waters are not a firm heaven; they are flowing or liquid heaven.
In Psalm 148:4, the firmament (heaven) was under the waters but the waters were under the "heaven of heavens", which is also a firmament. This is where Lucifer and his angels were cast out and their place was no longer found (Rev. 12:8). Their place is a dirty, corruptible heaven that needed to be wiped away. They were not just sent away, their place was removed. The day Lucifer falls, the earth will know because we would feel and smell it (Isa. 14:15-16). That is when a voice will say from heaven, “Woe to the inhabitants of the earth…” (Rev. 12:12). Lucifer is going to fall, so we should prepare for it. When he falls, rapture would be easy because we are going to meet the Lord in the air (1 Thess. 4:17). If he is not removed, we would not be able to meet the Lord in the air. When that time comes, it would be easy for many Christians to become spiritual (Rev. 12:10).
The message we are hearing is changing us. It is not possible to come under this firmament and certain curses will not be dealt with. This is what it means to hide under cover and shade. When a person hides under cover, the scriptures say “the sun shall not smite you by day or the moon by night” (Ps. 121:6). We are under the sun; this is why we are being smitten. Satan is an evil being; he will smite men with the sun and then grow his trees as a model. These models are trees because of what they generate on earth. People profit from their inventions all over the world; they have a great spread and are able to reach all nations.
Satan also grows trees. One can not become a tree except it is permitted. This is the simple reason some people are mighty while others are low. In the kingdom of darkness, they choose who they want to be rich. It is not just about motivation; it is a contest. This is why people labour under the sun and vow to be rich on earth. Some even perform money rituals and get nothing out of it; things later become worse and they die from it. Wealth in the kingdom of darkness is not because of these things; they choose who to give wealth to.
We can only check how much of life we have acquired by the judgment we demonstrate in our conversations. Many are on their way to perfecting everlasting life unto Eternal Life. However, having done everlasting life, one cannot have Eternal Life by right or entitlement but by mercy (Jude 1:21). Mercy is heaven: another word for mercy is heaven.
Jesus is seated on the right hand of the Majesty on high (Heb. 1:3) to claim the resources for men; He will not show His ground until men eat both immortality and Eternal Life (Rom. 2:7; Heb. 8.1). The realm of the majesty on high is seen in Psalm 104:1 - "Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty." Reverend Kenneth E. Hagin had an encounter and spoke about a time the Archangel Michael will come and minister majestic things with some men. These majestic things are eternal. They are things of God’s majesty which are beyond just greatness. God is great, but He is also clothed with "honour and majesty".
"Honour and majesty" talk about two layers of reign; they are the things that the Father prepares for reigning. Without those things, a man cannot reign. There is a difference between an overcomer and one who reigns. The bride or army that came from heaven with Jesus were overcomers but they could not reign. They had to stay with the Lamb and be fed by Him, for them to reign with Him for a thousand years (Rev. 20:5). This is referring to the practice of the resurrection life. The agenda of resurrection is to see a man live and not die. This is the potency of the resurrection of the dead. That is how the bridal company would demonstrate the life of resurrection. However, it is not every Christian that would be in the bridal company.
One who is born again and never grew up spiritually will be found in the new earth of the world to come. It is in the future that we would know the price of carnality. Anyone who is born again would be there but will not be able to perform the feat of some other men in that world. Right now, some of the commandments of faith, love or mercy are hidden; but in that world, a screen will be given to see the translation of those commandments.
We are currently hearing the things that pertain to the beauty of growing up spiritually, and we will know the shame of not attaining statutes in the spirit. A man will only reap what he has sown in his body (Gal. 6:7-8).
We should not go back to living a low life after hearing these words. There is nothing out there that should make a man compromise the worth of the life of God. Satan will always come with deceit; he can tell a man who believes in truth to pursue money first and then submit to this life later. Heaven will not permit such because God will supply our needs in His own way. Many of the things we are dying for are nothing. When we die today and wake up in the other world, we will realize this. A man should rather sow his life into the rivers of the life of God.
Mercy is the doorway to Eternal Life; it is the life in the realm of Eternal Life. Mercy does consider what man knows in order to choose him; it advises itself on who to choose and you cannot question it (Rom. 9:15-18). We do not know why mercy may decide to choose a man and not choose another. God did not choose any other person to teach in the New Testament but an injurious fellow like Saul of Tarsus. When a man has done everlasting life (or the will of God), there is still a need for patience in seeking for the mercy that leads unto Eternal Life (Heb. 10:36; Jude 1:21). There is a reason God wants to give us Eternal Life while we are still here on earth: it is to prove that such a man can still naturally live here with such a life.
“And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.” (Rev. 22:5). This is the place we are coming to – a place where the Lord God will give us light completely. There will not be morning or day in that place because the Lord God will give light. The Lord God as light is the key to reigning. This light is an eternal light that we need to reign, so we should press into it. However, we cannot get here unless we become overcomers. We are also coming to a place where overcoming will be a minor subject and the curriculum of reward will be the main subject.
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Rev. 12:11). We cannot overcome the dragon just by living; we need the program of not loving one's life unto death. Satan will lose the allegiance of a man the day Satan's life dies completely inside such a man. These things we are hearing are God's preservation, to give further progress into the life of God. It is by the mercy of God that we are seeing and hearing these things.
