Nothing New Under The Sun…
Something New Above The Sun…

On Sunday, 20th January, 2008 after Church service, the youth president of my home Church; Bro Abel J. Tsado was addressing us (The Youths), and as he talked on, he made a striking revelatory statement that got my heart leaping.

As Brother Abel addresses us that fateful day, he made this mind-boggling remark: “There is nothing new under the sun, but there is something NEW above the sun.”
Wonderful!!! That was/is really an insightful and mind-blowing statement and it’s pregnant with revelations!

As soon as those revelatory words dropped from the lips of my Youth president, I began what you might call; ‘high frequency meditation’ on those words – brooding over the remark (so to speak), and that was when/how this article was conceptualized.

As I meditated on the revelatory comment of my Youth president, the Lord began to unfold unto me some hidden “mannas” (revelation truths) in and behind those words. I want to in this article, share a few of those ‘mannas’ with you…

“There is nothing new under the sun, but there is something NEW above the sun.”

To start with, only God is above the sun. The Heaven is His Throne and He lives in Shekinah Glory. I repeat, only God lives in the realm that is above the sun.
Even though ‘man-made’ space technology has taken man to the moon and the outer space, space technology has never ‘land’ man close to the sun, let alone above the sun – where NEW THINGS can be found.

But the Bible says; ‘God has had us sit with Christ in heavenly places far above principalities and powers’ (Ephesians 2:6 & Ephesians 1:20 -21).

Meaning that, for a Believer, it is possible to access ‘NewThings’ from above the sun because, we are seated in heavenly places with Christ – far above the sun!
Therefore, it is possible for us to easily ‘download’ New Things. New Things? You may ask; yes, New Things! – New Revelations, New Ideas, New Songs, New Solutions, New Beginnings, New Open Doors, New Foundations, New Breakthroughs, New Manifestations, New Healings, NEW Genuine REVIVAL in the Church etc!

Listen up Brethren: If you are searching under the sun (be it on earth or in space) for New Things, you are wasting your time and energy. The Bible says; “There is NOTHING new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9).

But in Heaven (above the sun) where God dwells, can be found New things we have never seen or dreamed of in this part of eternity. ‘Above the sun’ can be found New Inventions we have never seen, New Revelations we have never accessed, New Songs that have never been written or sung, New Revivals the Church has never witnessed etc! The Bible says; ‘God’s mercies are NEW every morning’ (Lamentations 3:22 -23).

Anytime you look at God, there is something NEW about Him…something New to ‘tap’ from Him…Something New to say and write of Him…

I read several years ago of an American preacher who had an awesome out-of-body experience…
Let me be quick to point out however that such supernatural experiences are uncommon (not often experience) and unexpected (NOT experienced at will or by practice as some false teachers would have believe).

Now, this preacher I have just mentioned had a genuine out-of-body experience. In that experience/encounter, he was taken to Heaven (above the sun) where he was privileged to behold the Throne and the Glory of the “I Am” – God, the all-awesome One.
This preacher recalled that, anytime the Four Living Creatures makes a ‘360 degree round trip’ around the Throne of the “I AM”, he (the preacher) could literally see and hear them (The 4 Living Creatures) sang/exclaim in worship: “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come” exactly as recorded in Revelation 4:8.
This preacher now asked the angel that was taking him round Heaven the question; “why is it that anytime the Four Living Creatures ‘goes round’ The Throne they keep exclaiming: “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come?”.
The angel responded in answer to his question: “Anytime the 4 Living Creatures behold God, they see something entirely NEW about God which they have never seen before. So, in awe and adoration of the Almighty, they exclaimed, ‘Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty…’”

Isn’t that amazing? The 4 Living Creatures have been beholding Jehovah Yahweh since (or even before) creation and yet, they keep seeing something entirely NEW about God! What an awesome God we serve! Let’s give Him praise for He is worthy!
He lives above all things - including the sun – and hence, New Things are His order – they are His eternal nature!

As Bob and Debby Gas once wrote; “Our God is a lover of New Things: New songs, New tune. Not only can He do what He has done before, He can [also] do the unexpected…Halleluyah.”

“There is nothing new under the sun, but there is something NEW above the sun.”

The challenge before us as Believers is for us to begin to access those New Things from ‘above the sun’ [Heavenly realm] for the benefit of the Church and humanity at large.

LISTEN, I TELL YOU A MYSTERY: Angels are also anxiously awaiting and counting on us to unfold and make known to them the “New Things of God”, because, they do not have access to them. I’m just baffled by that revelation truth – really baffled!
I repeat: angels are also anxiously waiting and counting on us to unfold and make known to them the “New Things of God”, because they do not have access to them. That should be a food for thought for the false teachers of our day who are directly or indirectly emphasizing the veneration of angels in their teachings and doctrines.

God expects us to make known to His angels, principalities and powers His many-sided New Things (manifold wisdom). Wow! This amazing revelation truth sounds too good to be true. But also too good not to be true. This is not merely a ‘theological’ opinion; it is a living, working Scriptural truth!!

Hear the Bible: “To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be [made] known by the church the manifold wisdom of God” (Ephesians 3:10 KJV).
Powerful! This is exciting stuff!! To let you feel the impact and the import of this amazing revelation truth, I will quote this text from 3 other versions/translations:

”His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 3:10 NIV).

“God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display His wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 3:10 NLT).

“[The purpose is] that through the church the complicated, many-sided wisdom of God in all its infinite variety and innumerable aspects might now be made known to the angelic rulers and authorities (principalities and powers) in the heavenly sphere.” (Ephesians 3:10 Amplified Bible)

And then 1Peter 1:12 also stressed; “….even angels long to look into these [NEW] things” (1Peter 1:12 NIV).

Let this simple but profound revelation truth grip your soul with new force today: Angels are anxiously waiting to hear and learn about the “New Things” of God from us!
The Bible says; “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter” (Proverbs 25:2).

So many of God’s New Things has been concealed even to His high-ranking and elect angels. That truth alone is enough a wonder to ponder over for eternity! I am in awe of the wonder of this awesome revelation truth!!

God expects us as kings to search out those New Things and bless His angels and humanity with them.

“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter” (Proverbs 25:2).

Hallelujah! We are not just kings, but we are also priests – call it a ‘double barrel’ advantage. Revelation 1:6 and Revelation 5:10 says; “[Christ] has made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”

1Peter 2:9 also says; “[We] are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people that should declare the praises of Him who called [us] out of darkness into HIS marvelous light… [Read 1 Peter 2:9 KJV].

Let’s arise and begin to access NEW THINGS from above the sun (God’s dwelling Place) so we can consequently walk in dominion and show forth the praises and the glory of our Heavenly Father who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light…

Let’s begin to ‘download’ Heavenly mysteries that will terminate the miseries of men in the earthly realm.

Jesus said; “It is given unto [us] to know the mysteries [New Things] of the Kingdom of Heaven …” (Luke 8:10, Mark 4:11 )
1 Corinthians 4:1-2 describes us (not the angels) as the custodians of the mysteries/secrets things [New Things] of God.

Let’s continue to ‘download’ divine revelations that will cause us to walk in power, influence and dominion in this time and age to the glory and for the glory of our God and that of His Christ.

The Bible says; “…Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God” (1 Corinthians 2:9-10 KJV)

We have the mind of Christ (1Corinthians 2:16 ), the mind that can access deep and unsearchable things from God’s Throne (above the sun), and by those deep and unsearchable things exercise our sonship and authority in the midst of a crooketh and perverse generation.

Let’s go on high frequency worship, praise and adoration of our Maker… Let’s embark on prayerful study and meditation of God’s Word… Let’s pray fervently with understanding and in the Spirit…. Let’s be saturated with the Word… Let’s walk in consecration and righteousness… Let’s walk in love…. And let’s also walk in the fullness of the Spirit…
By so doing, we shall begin and continue to access NEW THINGS from the Throne of Him Whose ways are past finding out… from Him that NEW THINGS are His “natural” phenomenon.

By the help of the Spirit, let’s continue to download uncommon revelations/mysteries from ‘above the sun’ that would baffle and humble this Godless and ‘science-manipulated’ generation!

Let’s arise and continue to access New Things from above the sun! That’s what Abba Father expects us to do.

“There is nothing new under the sun, but there is something NEW above the sun.”
(Bro. Abel Tsado).

“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter”
(Proverbs 25:2).

“To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be [made] known by the church the manifold wisdom [many-sided New Things] of God.”
(Ephesians 3:10).

Praise God! We are already ‘sitted’ (seated) in heavenly places with Christ…far above principalities and powers – far and above the sun.

The time is come for the Church to make known to humanity…make known to the angels, principalities and powers the manifold wisdom [many-sided New Things] of God. We can do it and we will do it! Cos ’ we have been mandated and empowered by God to do it (See Ephesians 3:10 and Luke 8:10 ).

Like the 4 Living Creatures, may we continue to see, hear, and download New Things from God’s Throne perpetually, so we can join them (The 4 Living Creatures) in exclaiming; ‘Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty…’ in awe and adoration of HIS ‘many-sided’ NEW Things.

May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, continue to give unto us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
