Edge of Eternity


Looking through the mist of time, straining to see to the other side, feet barely touching the ground, and the edge that separates these two worlds so narrow and becoming narrower, to the point that when the transition to the other side happens I realize that I have crossed over and find myself among the King’s chariots, immersed in a battle that is not of this world. (Song of Songs 6:12)

In fact, I am fighting in many battles, joined together with my fellow warriors from this world, all of us fighting alongside heaven’s armies and the Captain of Heaven’s armies. The dust is thick and the battle is raging, the fight is fierce, and my hand is frozen to my sword. I know that my destiny is to fight this fight. (Josh. 5:13-15; I Sam. 17:45; II Sam. 23:10; II Cor. 10:3-5; I Tim. 6:12)

At times He brings me out of the battle, while still over the edge on the spiritual side, and He speaks with me in the thick of the forest while we stand on the Path that leads to the final clearing, the Way that I know I will continue to walk on when this particular battle is done. (Isa. 35:8)

In the thick of the forest, the battle is still raging, while I have this respite for a little while on the Path. Sweat streams from my brow, my breath and heart heaving from the fight, but as I look into His beautiful face, the face of the One my soul loves, He goes over the Plan and reminds me of His strategy before He sends me back in. There is refreshing and encouragement there with Him where I am renewed with His strength but I know for now, I must go back, with His peace and purpose encompassing me about, to do the thing I’ve been trained to do until the restoration of all things. (Isa. 26:3; Ps. 27:4, 8; Song 3:4; Isa. 40:29-31; Ps. 119:105; Ps. 144:1)

Suddenly my feet are back on a familiar foundation, a physical earth, and the mist settles around me again. I’m back from the other side but I know I will re-enter because of my calling as His warrior/worshiper. I am no longer bound to the natural world around me and even in the physical realm the spiritual part of my being is more and more identified with the Olam Haba (the world to come). (John 17:16; Eph. 6:12)

At times I am aware that I am sitting with Him high above the earthly realm in a place that I don’t yet fully know, but it’s a place He is allowing me to see, even though dimly. And the constant Presence enveloping my soul is becoming more tangible than ever before. This is not a natural place – this is a place that I know I cannot enter without Him, but He is there, and He bids me come even though in the natural it is impossible. This is God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and nothing is impossible with Him. Show me the Way, Lord, for my soul clings to You. (Eph. 2:6; I Cor. 13:12; Ps. 63:8)

There is a chasm between where these battles are fought and Olam Haba, but I know it is soon going to give total sway to the splendor of His coming and the battles in the heavenlies, where we are participating in so many wars, skirmishes, and mind challenges, will clear out with the breath of His mouth – the sharp Sword of Life cutting through any remaining vestige of rebellion against Him. (II Thes. 2:8; Heb. 4:12; Rev. 19:15)

Who is this King of Glory? And who am I in this world that has become so strange to me – I am looking for a City with foundations and I can see it – I am viewing a Land afar off and I see the King in His beauty. He is allowing a glimpse of what is to come. (Ps. 24:8; Heb. 11:10; Heb. 11:13-15; Isa. 33:17)

The Ruach and the Bride standing on the edge, moving in and out of both realms, and it is now the way we live, on the edge of eternity, knowing Olam Haba is soon to come to this planet. And every knee will bow as we welcome the King of all kings, Yeshua ha Mashiach. This is our destiny. (I Cor. 2:13; Rev. 22:17; Php. 2:10-11; Isa. 45:23; Rev. 3:11-13, 21; Rev. 5:10)

Be encouraged. Let your hope be sure and your purity be increased as you look for Him and long for His appearing. Let’s worship the King while we stand on the edge of eternity. (I John 3:1-3; II Tim. 4:8; Rev. 19:6-7)

Love and shalom in Messiah Yeshua,

Cathy
