In this episode of The TruthSeekah Podcast TruthSeekah is joined by Martin Smith of Flying Penguins as they speak about Conscious Encounters With Christ and Facilitating Experiences
Just as there are different Realms and dimensions in the spirit there are corresponding mind states of consciousness that one is able to walk in in the natural. These different levels of consciousness are obtained through gnosis by knowing God through experience. Our experiences open up a whole new realm of possibilities when it comes to the different levels and aspects of the godhead. There are many different points of views and angles when it comes to God’s love and I bid you to search out all of them. Another way that we are able to access these deeper states of consciousness is by faith. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God; so as we pursue God deeper through his written word we are building our faith in not only what he has done but what he is able to do. I don’t think that one State of Consciousness is higher than the next. One State of Consciousness may be a season of Walking In Miracles, another signs and wonders and another the law of manifestation. It is only when we’ve experienced each of the seasons that we can bring all of the essences together and be well-balanced as we grow into mature sons and daughters in Christ. Each of the states of consciousness are capped with mindfulness. Setting your attention and affections upon the Lord enables you to search out his goodness. This is done by continually gazing upon him through the means before mentioned as well as through Intimacy in prayer, worship, fasting and other spiritual practices. There were realms that I was walking in after an encounter with the Lord where I literally vibrated and trembled for the next three days. Any time that I would be reminded of the goodness of God I would just begin to weep and feel his presence all over my body. This was a beautiful encounter that I had and it lifted me to a realm of conscious understanding where all was gratitude. Now that was years ago and although may day to day experiences may not be as intense; now that I have walked in that level of understanding in the spirit I am now seated there in Christ. That level of gratitude and connectivity is not something that I’ve experienced; its something that I am, and we are. I am not less spiritual because I’m not trembling in quaking 24/7 as in times past but again every season and realm of consciousness is important because they are our portion of faith that is given and is maintained throughout our journey. Again, this is accessed by knowing who we are in Christ by faith, believing God at his word and encountering the depths of his love. The scripture says that love is what fuels your faith and if it is not of love it is not a faith, the scriptures says that whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
