Numbers 11: 26 (KJV) ” But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp.”
The opening scripture accounts how that two of the elders of Israel that were selected and invited for the heavenly experience with God did not show up physically for the meeting on the mountain ( for which ever reason(s), we are not told ). Despite their absence, we see that something notable happened to them in the place they were located as at the appointed time for a heavenly assembly unto God.
One heartwarming fact to know is, when God has you on His list, whatever experience you need to have will meet you up, wherever you are, as far as you are still on course and in tune.
In this light, we need to understand that when God adds you to a commission, or a ministry, just set your heart right and be in sync wherever you find yourself at any point in time, the experience of the fellowship will be your vital experience too, wherever you are.
The Apostle John was on the rocky island of Patmos with a lot of folks, ranging from all manner of hard-core prisoners to political offenders of the Roman empire, yet he had a call to come up for a heavenly experience, amisdt that harsh environment (He was still on course). He narrates “I John, …was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet …and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.” Revelation 1:9-10, 4:1 (KJV)
In the same way, we also, could receive a heavenly experience. All you need to do is to ‘be in the spirit’, as the Apostle John affirms “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet” Revelation 1:10 (KJV). Thank God we already live in the Spirit. Hallelujah!!! Romans 8:9 a (KJV) emphatically states “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.”
Let this consciousness be in constancy in your heart and mind. I tell you, you may be the next in line for a special heavenly encounter with The Lord.
God bless you for being a part of the series “Come Up Thither”.
