Different rooms in the father's house

  2. 2. JOHN 14:1-6 (NIV)  Jesus Comforts His Disciples  14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”
  3. 3. JOHN 14:6 (NKJV)  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”  Jesus went to prepare rooms, dwelling places for us. This rooms can be visited now on this time, you can experience the knowing of the different rooms in the Father’s house.
  4. 4. BECOMING A FRIEND  Let’s compare our natural dwelling with the one in heaven.  Having a quick look to this study, you could determine where are you standing in the House of God.  As in the natural, if you are just visiting a person that you just had known for the first time, you won’t pass further than the dining room, you may ask permission to use the Bathroom though.
  5. 5. ACQUAINTED WITH  As you become acquainted with this person, he will invite you to have dinner, you will be more relaxed and act in in a more natural way, you will not feel a complete estranger any more.  As your relationship with this person ascends to the category of friendship you feel comfortable with this person whom you know, like, and trust; you will go to the different rooms with confidence. You will feel you are welcome and accepted in his house.
  6. 6. PARTNERING WITH  As you treat more this person, your relationship could escalate to a partner in business.  As you become associated with this person you have more and more confidence and you are now able to freely go through the whole house.  Your friend at times could even entrust you with the keys of the hold house and put you in charge and custody of all his goods.
  7. 7. IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM  In the spiritual realm, in our relationship with God the same process happens with us. At the beginning we just approach to His living room, them little by little as we fellowship with Him we start to know other rooms from His house, and as with and old good friend we freely go through all the rooms; we get to know them all and we may even have a preferred one.
  8. 8. PSALM 65:4 (NKJV)  4 Blessed is the man You choose, And cause to approach You, That he may dwell in Your courts. We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Of Your holy temple. God invite us to come and stay at home with him, not jus as a visitor, but to stay with Him as a son
  10. 10. THE LIVING ROOM ● It’s a place where you receive visits, or where you are received when you go to your friends. ● Talk and fellowship. ● Let requests be known unto God. ● Where you ask and you receive. ● Here is where you seek and shall find.
  11. 11. THE LIVING ROOM ● In here we: ● Sit Down with the Father. ● Talk to him about the things of the day and present our requests. ● Here we present all our supplications and cares. ◆ Sadly many Christians live here
  12. 12. THE LIVING ROOM ● They relationship with God is: ● Talking to God just when they’re in need. ● Trying to see what God has for them. ● Asking and seeking the things they need. ● Some get trap in their own things, they are just talking about their Kingdom, their ministries, finances, bills, family,
  13. 13. You cannot live in the living room ● Check your heart: What is that you talk the most to God when praying? ● Is your prayer focus on you or Him? ● A relationship cannot be centered only on asking. ● Look for the place of giving your love and freely receiving it.
  14. 14. THE KITCHEN
  15. 15. THE KITCHEN ● The kitchen is the place where people are serving, working and preparing things for God. ● Is the Place of “Doing”. ● The Kitchen is necessary, but if all you know of the house is the Living room and the Kitchen, then you are too busy. ● In the Kitchen you are the Elder son.
  16. 16. THE KITCHEN ● Mary was at the feet of Jesus, she was having intimacy with Jesus by just seating at His feet and listening to his words. That filled her heart. ● Martha was busy in the kitchen with serving and the work she was doing. She lost the main point of a complete relationship: Intimacy.
  17. 17. THE KITCHEN ● The kitchen is a great and glorious place of producing good fruit and doing the Father’s business. ● But at the same time can be a place where out of too much serving we lost sight of the Glory and Intimacy with God. ● If we don’t have equilibrium we can easily be burnt out.
  19. 19. THE DININGROOM ● Psalm 23:5 (NKJV) ● 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
  20. 20. ● Psalm 34:8 ● 8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! ● Psalm 119:103 ● 103 How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth!
  21. 21. Psalm 81:16 16 He would have fed them also with the finest of wheat; And with honey from the rock I would have satisfied you.”
  22. 22. THE DININGROOM ● In His Dining Room there are two very noticeable seats: One is for Jesus, and the other one is yours. ● You and Him are prominent in all the group of people. ● In this place we have the Bread of Life, Living Water and the New Wine; and of course never misses a pot of Honey.
  23. 23. THE DININGROOM ● Just as you need in the natural to drink and eat every day, so we have the same needs in the spiritual realm. ● This is the room of experiences where God touches us. ● But we cannot live only of experiences
  24. 24. The Bathroom
  25. 25. THE BATHROOM ● Place of repentance and of cleansing, and cleaning; place of getting rid of some unwanted stuff. ● EVERY CHRISTIAN needs to visit the bathroom, ● Some Christians believe that once they are saved, they don’t need to visit the bathroom.
  26. 26. ● 1 John 1:9 ● New King James Version (NKJV) ● 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
  27. 27. It’s good to go to the cleansing place. ● It is absurd to believe that one doesn’t need the bathroom, it’s like suddenly you decide not to relief yourself, and think you are going to be OK. ● Some Christians live holding everything, they have spiritual constipation, not realizing they can visit the bathroom and get rid of everything.
  28. 28. THE BATHROOM ● There are others that live in the bathroom, they are living in shame, guilt and condemnation, they don’t dare to come out of the bathroom. ● They go the bathroom but still feel dirty. They feel shame because they feel they haven’t been forgiven, and repeat the process again and again.
  29. 29. THE BASEMENT ● There are Christians who live in the basement, it’s their secret place. ● A basement is not in the open, there is no fresh air and there are no windows
  30. 30. THE BASEMENT ● The basement is dark, humid and dingy. ● It’s messy, a place where you leave everything hung out. ● A place where you throw all your junk and don’t bring your friends into.
  31. 31. THE BASEMENT ● Look for those friends that will help you to clean up. ● Don’t think that if you don’t go to the basement things would go away by themselves
  32. 32. THE BASEMENT ● It is the place of intercession, warfare, birthing and calling forth things. ● The things that happen out in the open, happen in the basement first. ● What happens down in the basement is the foundation of what God does.
  33. 33. THE BASEMENT ● When your basement is clean, then you can have an extra room where to enjoy a time of meditation, reflection and spend some private time reading and studying the word of God, this place becomes your prayer closet.
  34. 34. THE BASEMENT ● As in the natural a home cannot stand without a basement or foundation, ● No work of God can stand without a foundation of prayer.
  35. 35. THE BASEMENT ● 2 Timothy 2:19 ● New King James Version (NKJV) ● 19 Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”

  38. 38. THE BEDROOM ● The sad thing about the bedroom is that some Christians fell terribly uncomfortable and don’t know how to be a lover and friend of God, and so they won’t stay long in this place of intimacy. ● In the Bedroom you are secure in God’s love and you know His acceptance. ● All ministry needs to flow out of this room.
  39. 39. THE BEDROOM ● It is so good to start in the bedroom, here you will receive great revelation , but if you don’t persist on intimacy, you will end up in the Kitchen and get stuck in there. ● People start to notice that you have been with Jesus and have received something fresh from God.
  40. 40. THE BEDROOM ● Acts 4:13 (NKJV) ● 13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.
