THE HIGHER LIFE

There is a high life, saith the Lord, a life that is lived above the small things & the selfish things of this terrestrial plane, & it is My will for those who are elect according to the foreknowledge of your God, to live the high life. When you are doing so all your turnings in life will have an upward direction; all your movements in life will have a Godward tendency, & My purpose concerning you will thus be fulfilled.

To the chosen was granted the experience that brought them to a high mountain apart. There they knew a turning from the activities of the plain. An experience of severance from all that tied them to that lower strata of activity. They turned at the behest of the Master, they turned towards the heights & in the heights there was a turning, albeit, a turning that was not of their own doing; because there are powers in the heights, saith the Lord, there are powers that are divine, powers that overrule, that govern, that control. So they were caused to turn from that which was estimable, from a revelation of the greatness of your God in the presence of two of old who had been mightily used in bygone days; but they were led to turn that they may see no man save Jesus only; & this is the hallmark of the higher life, My people, that the Christ is filling the whole of your vision, & He is indeed, pre-eminent in all things. I would lead you there.

It is because I am desiring to bring you to such a place that I go backward today again to say, “Turn,” for your natural disposition would lead you toward your fellows. Your individual tendency would be to turn towards company, to turn towards your life, & to turn towards activity, & turn towards the fulfilment of ambition, & to turn towards the fulfilling of your own abilities & potentialities, but I, the Lord, say turn, turn, turn, towards Me that in all things that Christ may have the pre-eminence.

I do not want you to be bound to Me by such a flimsy thing as the knowledge that I answer prayer, for although that is a great thing in your estimation, yet I would bring you to a place where, though I slay you, yet will you trust Me. I would bring you to a place where although you gather nothing for yourself from the experience, nevertheless, you are prepared that I shall have the pre-eminence & I would cause you to remember that to those who were given a revelation of My glory on the Mount of Transfiguration, that to those there was reserved the manifestation of the Cross, a Cross in the experience of the pre=eminent Christ, & later a Cross in their own experience, physically & spiritually. Very often I am leading you into the heights & you are failing to understand the mystery of My movements within your heart, because you remember times when your prayers were always answered. You can remember days & months & years when it was a joy to come before Me with request because your request was so often granted; but those days for many have gone & you are in an experience where you walk in the dark, & walk alone, & there is not the same amount of answered prayer.

But, oh, My people, there is a high life, there is a high life that moves My people in an expression of prayer, that brings to bear upon them answers that are veiled in the will of God: & to the lower line of thought no answer has been given; but those who walk with Me & live alone with Me are able to receive to themselves answers of a higher type & a loftier degree, for I, the Lord. Am drawing them into an inner circle of elective activity that My purposes may be fulfilled.

Oh, My people, these are vital days in the fulfilment of My will; these are days, saith the Lord, days, days that are alive with the imminence of the Coming Christ. These are days that are pregnant with possibilities of the fulfilment of age-long purposes, saith the Lord. And I would gather to Myself a people who will indeed live the high life, who will live in the present of the Divine, who will live under submission & subjection to the pre-eminent Christ & allow Me to gather them together in a liberty that will allow Me to be active among them in spiritual activity; active in the fulfilment of My will; active in the reaching out of Divine purpose, saith the Lord.

There is so much that I have yet to do before the age can be fully brought to a termination. There is a need, (yet i speak in mystery) there is a need, yea, that I shall fill up that which is behind of the sufferings of Christ, & there is because of this need, a reaching out to gather together a body, by the which, in the ministry of elective suffering, I shall be able to fulfil My will in this respect, saith the Lord. There is a need that I shall establish within a body of people an affinity so deep, so magnetic, so alive that at the coming of Christ there shall be a spontaneous upward move, & they that are alive & remain shall be caught up to be forever with the Lord.

Have you thought of that which shall bring about such a tremendous upset of the laws of nature & allow men & women to rise above all laws that are natural, & meet their Lord in the air? I tell you, My people, it shall be wrought by a principle of Divine affinity, that is so, so, so very alive, & so very powerful that nothing in heaven nor in hell, nor in earth, will be able to keep My people on the earth when Christ shall come to the clouds, saith the Lord.

And, oh! there is a need that I shall be able to establish that affinity in My people – such a love, such a desire that I shall be pre-eminent, such an ambition to follow every leading that I shall give, such a continuous turning, turning, turning in everyday of life & in every aspect of life, & such a rising up into a high life where in fellowship with Myself I can minister to you & implant within you an affinity for such as I have for you. If I draw you will you run after Me? If I draw you apart, will you run after Me? If I draw you into the uttermost seclusion, will you run after Me? If I draw you, on the other hand, into the thick of battle where the danger is, will you run after Me? If I draw you away from everything that you count worthwhile, will you run after Me? If I draw you away from your preparations for your life & career, will you run after Me?

Oh, My people, turn, turn, turn your eyes; turn your hearts; turn your feet & follow Me & I will lead you into the heights & I will cause you to live the high life. There will be times when you must descend to the valley. There will be times when My will for you shall take you from the heights, but it is never My will that the heights shall be taken from you. I would lift you to such an altitude in My will that I may fill you with the expansiveness of My presence; that I might fill you with the length, & breadth & height & depth of the knowledge of My love that will keep you high in the spirit so that as you come to the plain & descend to the valley, you can bring to it the freshness & the vigour & the touch of the heights, saith the Lord.

It is My will that here on earth there shall be a revelation of the heavenlies. It is My will that there shall be a manifestation of the variegated aspects of life as it is experienced in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus. And you are a people who have been called with such a calling & given such a purpose to fulfil in order that this shall be done. I call you to turn to Me, saith the Lord God of Hosts.


(This prophecy was given by J.A. Tate, Prophet, 9.11.47 in the Apostolic Church, Melbourne Australia.)

I thought I would add some comments regarding, `Thus said the Lord.` I see there may be some questioning it. Having been brought up in this Apostolic movement (denomination) I am used to the Prophets speaking the word of the Lord & having the messages flow like torrents. However I am not sure how it effects others.


When the prophet would say `Thus says the Lord,` he believed that the Lord was speaking through him & that it was not just something that he was making up from his own mind. However, because the person is human & fallible the word could have his own words also & have error. Thus it is always subject to God`s word & others passing judgment. (1 Cor. 14: 29)


As prophecy is for `edification, exhortation & consolation,` (1 Cor. 14: 3) I can see that the word above, `The Higher Life,` is for edification & exhorting us to come closer, (higher) to the Lord.
