We must continually remind ourselves our most challenging transition is to think like Jesus. The Amplified Bible says this in (Eccl.3:11) : "He has made everything beautiful in it's time; He also has planted eternity in men's heart and mind (a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun, but only God, can satisfy) yet so that man cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end". The planting of eternity in our hearts and minds enables us to achieve the "high calling" of God in Christ Jesus.(Phil. 3:14)  Notice the order; Christ Jesus and not Jesus Christ. The "high calling" brings with it a revelation that eternity is planted in my heart, my heart is the center of my being , and my place is---and always shall be "in-Christ" He's the Anointing One ! 

     In this realm of Rest, our focus leaves temporary and finds Eternal !! Though it seems impossible, when I enter into Christ who is the dimension of eternity  I actually can know the works of God from beginning to end. HOW HUNGRY ARE YOU?  These days each word we read seems to be filled with living revelation: "Wherefore Holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;" (Heb.3:1) The word Holy is capitalized and automatically denotes a sanctified set-apart group of elect saints or sons. To partake of the heavenly calling one must leave the temporal and activate eternity planted in our hearts. Never a man spake like this man,  only He can stir-up such a realm in us that problems, wickedness, and even terrorism take a small back-seat to the divine glory revealed within His Presence in a "secret place" located "in-Christ" !  Praise His Name !! 

     Looking further we see the word "consider". This word in its fullness is for the "mature". When you are really meaning business in your meditation and your goal is to achieve understanding (this takes determination), then you can see why it's Christ Jesus instead of Jesus Christ. Christ signifies the "anointed one" who never a man spake like this man ! Eternity and Anointing accompany each other.  During intense consideration Christ Jesus takes His exalted position and becomes the Apostle and High Priest of our profession. This modern religion would rather put Jesus back in a manger on Christmas, then back on the cross at Easter in a cycle that takes away His Greatness.Jesus needs not be reminded of the manger,it really speaks of a sense of helplessness when Jesus had to have great patience waiting until He could enter His ministry. The cross is a method of Roman Death for intense suffering. Jesus need not be reminded of the day His prayer was Father let this cup pass from me. But consider always the Great Apostle sent from God to set Eternity in our hearts. He is forever exalted !!

     An expert Apostle is Sent and then Sets. The characteristics of our High Priest show His Worthiness and Faithfulness. "Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth  to make intercession for them. For such an high priest became us who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;"(Heb.7:25-26) To the uttermost means Jesus won't quit until He has accomplished all eternity. Consider always our Great High Priest: "Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made a high priest forever after the order of Melchisedec".(Heb.6:20)  Consider this; without father or mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life. He truly is THE GREAT I AM  Always and Forever.
