The first part of the year the grain and the wine and oil stored in the first chamber
This is illustrative of weapon against every disease and every plague
This 3 chambers is not for the world
Is for His people
The next part we are all resting at home with our family
The next part of the year we were in the lockdown
The last part of the year is the upper room
Upper room for the 3 floor house and the temple
The upper chamber is pathed with gold
We are in heavenly places with Christ
first heaven is the atmospheric realm
The universe is the realm of second heaven
Third heaven is beyond the universe, is where God dwells
The moment we are born again we are in heavenly places. We are in spirit realm
Third heaven where God’s presence is
Spiritually we are in Christ
Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
We are all in Christ
Where God set us high above all nations
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
Stay in the place of the upper chamber where the spirit of God can lead you
Position-wise we are in Christ

Ministering at Troas
Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight. There were many lamps in the upper room where they were gathered together.
And in a window sat a certain young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep. He was overcome by sleep; and as Paul continued speaking, he fell down from the third story and was taken up dead. But Paul went down, fell on him, and embracing him said, “Do not trouble yourselves, for his life is in him.” Now when he had come up, had broken bread and eaten, and talked a long while, even till daybreak, he departed. And they brought the young man in alive, and they were not a little comforted.
