There is a Way
Crossing Over is essential in our walk into our Lord, just as the nation of Israel moved into the land of Canaan, we today must cross over into a new world, one higher than we see with our natural eyes, one that we can only see through His eyes, the eyes of Faith.
The crossing of Jordan was symbolic for us to learn from. Our Lord led them out of their known world Egypt, through the wilderness. Teaching them He was, and is faithful in His provision. The crossing of Jordan moved them into a new realm, a land flowing with milk and honey, but they had to walk it out, walking in and through His Faith. The land also had foul spirits in it, and they, the Israelite’s were no match for the spiritual warfare they were to engage in.
He brought them into a land that was theirs by promise, but they were required to walk in Faith to obtain it. Jordan was a line of demarcation, moving from the wilderness into the land of promise, which symbolized Christ.
In Him, and He in us we find that He is the Way, the Way into Truth, Truth being another Word for reality, and in this reality we find the realm of Spirit which is another Word for Life. So by and in His Faith, we walk in the Way, abiding in His Truth, and seeing His Life becoming our life.This is through the work of the cross, and the separation of our soul and spirit. Heb.4:12
And no man has ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. John 3:13
Paul stated how he walked, seeing above or beyond the earthly realm into the realm of Spirit. For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the Gospel of His Son. Romans 1:9.
It is in this realm of Spirit that we find the Kingdom, it is above the earth in every way.This is our Home. Although we may physically be on this earth, we can live and have our being from and in a realm higher. This is what it means to be in Christ.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. John 17:3
