You Must Go Up and Through - A Word of Encouragement and Confirmation

Don’t you love it when God goes out of His way to confirm His word to you?  It’s His way of saying, “Keep going, you are hearing right, don’t listen to all those other voices trying to discourage or confuse you.”

One of the Gen Xers from Niverville, MB just forwarded us this great confirmation from a well-known leader in the U.S., Lance Wallnau. 


You must go up to go through!

June 7, 2013 | By Lance Wallnau

“I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven.”
Revelation 4:1

There is a door now opened—in the heavens. You must go up to go through!

This has felt like a season of colliding spiritual climates. Erratic warfare: release and heaviness, brilliant light followed by sudden darkness—and not just in the same day—sometimes the same ten minutes! While praying, my wife contacted me and said she heard the words, “a changing of the guard.” I’m not sure what all that means to you, but the atmosphere has shifted and the angelic realm is upgrading all around you!

I sensed the Lord say to us, “I am going before you.” There has been a distinct advance and change of activity in the heavens. We are contending for destiny, and that individual destiny is connected to our individual position in the Spirit. More specifically, our promotions are now connected to the strength of our inner man; our capacity to go up and go through the door of transition into a new anointing and new season of harvest. The door is open … the voice is calling … the timing is now.

In Revelation when John looked and saw the open door, it was “standing” not moving. It was “in heaven” not on earth. This is a door made available in the spirit realm—right over your existing situation. I see now the reason for the seemingly violent shifts of atmosphere. It is because our spirit man must grow in strength in order to access and go into this new dimension. If we are to see more heaven on earth, we must be seated in this heavenly realm.

Then John heard, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this” (Revelation 4:3). John was told that when he went through the door into the next dimension, he would see things to come. A heightened level of prophetic perception is operating in those who have strength to see and hear—to go through (and stay through) the open door.

If we will stay in this heavenly dimension of authority, the things that vexed and harassed and clung to us will fall off. There is an anointing for upgrade upon us now. Previous performance won’t disqualify you. Heaven is calling you up into a closer intimacy—a more glorious obsession with the Godhead. This is the secret to the overcoming life: Open Door In Heaven (Right Above Your Existing Circumstance) = More Grace and Increase

This means less of all the weights and restrictions that held you down during the last season of wrestling. Let’s go up and go through together!


So much of this word resonates with what we have been hearing – “The door is open … the voice is calling … the timing is now.”  

Our friend Tracy Rahn, a worship leader from Abbotsford, wrote a wonderful song called People on Our Knees. Let’s sing this as our declaration that no matter what, we are going “up and through” the open door!

There’s no more wasting time
The days are nearly over
Our Groom is quickly coming
He greets us with a kiss
And proclaims, “You have been chosen
For such a time as this”

I choose to follow You
Forsaking all I know
And taking up my cross
And if I die, I die
To find my life in You
Oh Lord this is my cry
