Good Morning Precious and Dearly Loved Saint and Child of Our Abba Father!
“Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household…” Ephesians 2:19. What does that mean to you if you are a member of a household? A household is a home where the family lives simply put. If you are a member, that means you live their too, as part of the family, right?
“And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6. You have been raised up into the heavenly realms and are, now, a member of the household of God! “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 1:3. You have been raised into the heavenly realms, are a member of God’s own household, and have been given every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms, the household of God!
These are present, current Truths that are reality every second as we live here in the earth! We live in two realms at the same time!!!! This truth has been almost totally neglected by the church today!!!!!! So many people talk about heaven only in the future tense. “When I get to heaven someday,” they say. The Bible says that we are seated there, have been raised there already, and that we live in Christ Jesus in the heavenly realms, right now!!!!!
The Bible refers to us being In Christ Jesus about a hundred times. If we are in Him, then we have to be where He is! Simple! A hundred times the Bible says that we are In Him!!! In order to be in Him, we have had to be completely, 100% cleansed of all sin, perfected and glorified, as Jesus is. No sin and no darkness can enter in the kingdom of Heaven! Heaven is a place in the Spirit and we have become Spirit beings when we got born again and made as Jesus is!
“In His presence is the fullness of Joy and pleasures forevermore, at His right hand.” Psalms 16:11. Heaven is the full expression of the Father and Jesus and filled with the Holy Spirit!!! Everything in heaven is full of Life, full of Jesus, full of Love, EVERYTHING!!!! Even the rocks and birds and flowers and trees, Praise the Lord in Heaven!
Praise the Lord.a
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
praise him in the heights above.
2Praise him, all his angels;
praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
3Praise him, sun and moon;
praise him, all you shining stars.
4Praise him, you highest heavens
and you waters above the skies.
5Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for at his command they were created,
6and he established them forever and ever—
he issued a decree that will never pass away.
7Praise the Lord from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
8lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
stormy winds that do his bidding,
9you mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars,
10wild animals and all cattle,
small creatures and flying birds…
Heaven is completely full of the Father’s Joy, Love, Pleasures, Delights…… And people think Disneyland is the happiest place, the joy there doesn’t compare to the Joy in Heaven. So we are to simply drink deeply and continuously from the River of His Delights and feast on the abundance of the House of the Lord where we live right now! We are to set our hearts and minds on the heavenly realities! Set them there and not be moved! The Holy Spirit will empower you and me to do this!
Can you imagine what is going on in this household of heaven right now? Ask Holy Spirit, He will show you so that we can experience heaven while on the earth!!!! Just as Jesus prayed, “Your Will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” Because we are new creations in the Spirit, we can experience the reality of heaven, all of the Joy, Love, supernatural power….. through the Spirit right now! This is how we are intended to live, always releasing the kingdom of heaven to the earth realm!
“When Christ, who is your life, appears (revealed to your heart), then you also will appear (reveal His Glory to the earth) with Him in Glory.” Colossians 3:4. Drink deeply of the heavenly realm, all of its Joy, Love Pleasures, Delights….!!!!! You were created for this!!!!!! SHALOM!!!!!!!
