The Lord Is That Spirit

2 Corinthians 3:13-17; And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Of Veils

Because of that veil, every time that Moses is read, men’s eyes are covered. That veil is the place where revelation and understanding are covered because where there is no revelation, there is no redemption. That is why the Bible calls revelation as God’s redemptive power. The power of God to redeem is in the spirit of revelation. If the spirit of revelation is not working in the life of a Christian, he or she cannot see God.

Now, their eyes became blinded every time that Moses was read. But, he says that when the ministration of the spirit came, things changed. When a man enters Jesus Christ, the veils are done away with. There are many veils in church but they are carried on in the name of tradition. Take for example worship. One time I heard a Christian worship and say, come go with me behind the veil, come on and go with me behind the veil because in his presence we will find prevail.’ They have veils. They go into the presence and then come out. Some are even far from the veil. They are in the outer court and sing, ‘as I come into your presence, past the gates of praise….’

The veil is done away in Christ. I have seen that worshippers, even in their preparation, act like they are trying to go behind a certain veil in the presence of God. Who told you to put veils? The Bible says that the veil was rent into two. It means that twenty four seven, you and I have access. Do you realize that when the bible says that ‘and the lord is that spirit and where the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty’ the word used therein for liberty is access? There is license to get everything because where that spirit is, you don’t need to go through veils; you do not need to go through the first level to the second level to access Him. It means that in any form of worship, do not create veils for God.

Moses had a reason to because he did not want the Israelites to see the glory diminishing. When a man covers, it means that there are parts of him that become human and he does not want anyone to see those parts. However for us, that glory resides permanently so we have no reason to cover because there will never be a part of us or time when men look at us like men. We will always look like children of God. In every circumstance, you will have something upon you that will prove that you are more than a man. That is when I realized that men who have not understood grace cannot really have liberty in the spirit because the Lord is that spirit and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 

Liberty to Access

The church is moving to a place where men are going to have experience upon experience, upon experience because the spirit of God gives us liberty to access; the very spirit of liberty gives us the grace to behold God in all dimensions of the spirit. You are not going to see God in one way or in two dimensions but you are going to behold all the dimensions of the spirit. You will function in the earthly time and the heavenly time.  Everything around you is going to start drawing a correlation of someone who is not just earthly but there is something about you that men will look at and say that there is something on this woman that is different from the men that walked the surface of the earth. Now the Lord is that spirit and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is access. You have access.  The Bible says that you received not the spirit of this world but the spirit of God that you may know the things that are freely given unto you by God.  These things that he has given us; he has also given us the access to get them.
