Dear Jesus

In addition to the three dimensions of space and the one of time, there is the dimension of openness to My Presence. This one transcends the other four, giving you glimpses of heaven while you still reside on earth.

Dear Jesus,

I’m trying to wrap my mind around the concept of this fifth dimension — openness to Your Presence. It seems quite reasonable, because I know You transcend both space and time. However, I’m a time-bound creature: I can exist only in the present. Also, the world I see around me is decidedly three-dimensional. So, understanding this fifth dimension is a “stretch” for me — a stretch of faith.

Beloved, you are right on target. Openness to My Presence is all about faith: believing that though I am invisible, I am both Real and really with you. This is foundational to knowing Me. However, there is also an art to knowing Me. It is very personal, because each of My followers has a unique relationship with Me: comprised of all your communication with Me, your love for Me, your receptivity and responsiveness to Me.

Sometimes when you are seeking My Face, My Presence becomes more real to you than the space-time moment you occupy. The reality of My glorious Being outshines your current circumstances and lifts you above them. You feel free, and your spirit soars with Me. You rejoice in Me and are strengthened by that divine Joy. Thus, you enjoy glimpses of heaven while continuing to dwell on earth. 

Now Sometimes when you are seeking My Face, My Presence becomes more real to you than the space-time moment you occupy.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. 

~ Hebrews 11:1

Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”

~ John 11:40

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.

~ Ephesians 2:6
