Are You Looking for Jesus? Part 2: Glimpses of the Inner World
…and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time…Heb 9:28, (KJV)
This article will begin with a testimony from one of my readers a few days ago. It has to do with the safe place within, and then I will give more information about the safe place, what it is and why it is important.
Today it’s been a TOUGH work day. I work a job calling people, so some days it’s easier than others.
I took a break mid-morning to walk for a few minutes. As I walked, I focused on my spirit and sought to connect with Jesus instead of just being in the flesh. Soon, as I tried talking to him internally, I heard his gentle voice. I was explaining my frustrations about work and my time with him this morning, where I was struggling so much to feel connected to him and myself.
He encouraged me to say back to him different things he’s told me about work recently and reminded me how he is going to provide for me, and work’s not the one providing for me. As we kept talking, he asked me if I wanted to see something. I obviously said yes!! He showed me some glimpses from the Safe Place for the first time. One of my parts (a little girl) was swinging freely on a swing set. She did a confident flip off of it and stood there super proud of herself. Then, I asked him if another part who has been freed has indeed gotten to run like she wanted to. He said she has! Sometimes he runs with her too. I felt them running together.
Then, I saw Max there playing basketball (I had a glimpse of Jesus giving him a basketball when he had been freed, but I wasn’t 100% sure. Jesus affirmed to me that I wasn’t making it up, and He did indeed give him a basketball). So he was there happily shooting hoops. That was very encouraging.”
About the Safe Place
Every dissociated part to whom we minister will need to know where they belong. It would not be safe for them to return to their formerly assigned place in the inner structure where the cult had placed them. Jesus will integrate some parts immediately after their memories are processed. Other parts are not ready for integrating because they need more time for maturing and healing. These Jesus will take to a safe place prepared by him in the abused person’s spirit where demons and cult parts cannot come. Still others will not be merged until a later time because they still have a job to do to help the host personality (the person who is seeking help). These will remain within the inner structure but secretly hidden by Jesus until he calls them forth to help with the ministry.
All the parts have been brutally abused…one could rightly say they have lived through hell; therefore, the safe place where Jesus takes them is correspondingly like heaven. (Remember this all takes place in a dimension unknown to the rest of us who have not experienced the occult practices which remove the veil that shields our eyes from the spirit realm.) Usually the babies and young children are taken to one place and the older children and teens to another.
The safe place for young children might be a lovely cottage near a babbling brook with big trees to climb and little animals such as puppies, kittens and lambs with which to play. The young children may get to help with the babies in the cottage nursery or perhaps tend the lambs. Adult parts who love children may be there to supervise. Angels stand guard so the children have nothing to fear, and Jesus comes from time to time to play with them and give them lots of hugs and affirmation. The children need to play. Many SRA children were never allowed to play. Play is a very vital part of childhood–without it we cannot develop normally. This is a place of healing. At some point when enough healing has transpired, all the children will be integrated with the original person (the person created by God before abuse began). Only Jesus knows when this time will be. He initiates it and we stand back in awe and amazement at the wonderful healing only he can do. Glimpses into the safe place and the way Jesus ministers to the abused children opens our spiritual eyes to aspects of our Lord’s personality and his love that few people ever get to see.
