After this Manner, Pray…
Yahshua said and I will paraphrase. He said ‘if you create it within My Father will create it without. Mat 6:6
Matthew 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
This is a double edged sword so to speak.
In a nutshell Yahshua is telling his disciples that to a limited degree they partake in creation. What they create within will be made manifest by the Father. Notice that Yahshua is saying that the Father is watching what we are doing in the closet or rather within. In other words He is paying attention to what we are imaging or imagining within us.
This has always been true to some extent.
Remember what YHVH said about the Tower of Babel ‘Now whatsoever they imagine (see within themselves) will no longer be impossible for them.
Genesis 11:6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Now having said that, return to Mat 6:6 and realize that when Yahshua was giving the ‘KIngdom Prayer’ i.e. Matthew 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
When Yahshua gave Mat 6:9 it was supposed to be in conjunction with Mat 6:6. When He says ‘after this manner, therefore pray…..’ He was referring to the manner of prayer He gave in Mat 6:6.
Again, ‘You create it within and My Father will create it on the outside or rather bring it into manifestation.’
So what is it we should be seeing within?
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born from above, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
One very good reason why we haven’t seen the Kingdom of God is that we invariably tend to look at our memories or what has been dished out and implanted by Hollywood or the media. We see those images and often times hold them in our mind and heart for a period of time. So what do we get? More of the same, as I said Mat 6:6 is a double edged sword.
In other words we see what other men want us to see and we haven’t really looked to see what the Holy Spirit is showing us.
So Yahshua was saying that if we want the Kingdom of God to be manifest it is necessary to begin seeing it within.
When Yahshua said ‘Your Kingdom come’ this was said and written in the imperative tense. Which means it is a command and not an invitation.
What He actually says here is this ‘Your will (Pleasure) come into existence upon the earth, even as it is in Heaven.
I think many of us have been doing Mat 6:6 for years but we haven’t realized just what we are doing. Manifestation begins in the heart not in the words of our mouths. Which is why it so very important to ‘Guard our heart, for out it flow the issues of Life.’
This is not a concept or a method it is reality. As Yahshua said ‘verily, verily…’
