HIGHLANDS
Edited from an article by

In some manner and measure, that life Divine, which is lived by Almighty Jehovah, in His infinite realm, is to be approached and approximated by those finite ones who are seeking to be made conformable to the image of His Son. Such a Divine life, on the human plane, was once lived by the Man, Christ Jesus. This is to be done through an in-wrought transfusion of the divine-human life of Christ Jesus flowing into common human creatures, thus lifting them into a heavenly realm by the life-power of the atonement.

"But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord." II Corinthians 3:18

This transforming glory power is a light of revelation, given to illuminate each step of the way upward, a fire to burn up the chaff, to consume and separate the dross, a soap to cleanse away all that is defiling and dusty, a discoverer to discern the hidden unhealthy conditions that are within us. It is "A light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawn" (II Peter 1:19).

At times, this power comes through the Word.

"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession." Hebrews 4:12-14

At other times, it is with a scourge that the Father deals with His sons.

"My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him." Hebrews 12:5b

To Ezekiel the Lord said, "Though briars and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid" (Ezekiel 2:6b).

The latitudes and elevations of this spiritual plateau are not discovered by watchmen looking out from any natural promontory. It takes a Spirit- illuminated flashlight to discover light beyond the letter of the Word. There must be heralds equipped and sent forth of God. These divinely appointed "announcers" are presently in a time of preparation for this remarkable task of heralding a new visitation that will release a full redemption, which will far exceed all past declarations of privilege.

There are realms of attainment which God has made available to believers that have not been made known in the present-day circle of teachings, or presently attained to. But now, as we draw nigh to a time of visitation, the Lord has determined that these hidden mysteries shall be known, understood, and entered, for eminent reasons.

(1) To fully honor the exceeding-high cost paid in the atonement.
(2) That Jesus Christ may have a suitable Bride.
(3) That the Husbandman may receive the long waited for precious fruit of the earth.

"But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." I Corinthians 2:7-9
