Yes I know Heaven is all around us in us, in Creation and People, and the Earth is precious and full of His glory but that’s not what I’m talking about specifically here. I mean actually seeing, hearing and touching the invisible- being present in Heaven. This is the Mystic realm of God. Where like Paul we say “whether in the body I don’t know- but I was hijacked into Paradise.” It’s what many of the Saints of old walked in and shared numerous stories of being swept into it.
The bible throws out the challenge over and over again that it is possible to be there for everyone. We are invited there and have “free access” (which means a place, an invitation and a position) to go. We are told we are already seated there in the Spirit entangled and wrapped up in Christ. We are told every blessing is there that we need and to do warfare from there to shape the Sky and change the Earth. Even Jesus himself prayed that we would be where he is and actually see his outshining glory with the Father. John saw the door up and said the door was wide open. Over and over again the Scriptures testify that the Cross has once and for all broken the wall of separation between seen and unseen. It is fully possible to be trans-dimensional and see it.
Paul said it was Christian maturity to have this Heavenward focus in our lives –
I press on toward the goal to win the supreme and heavenly prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward. So let those [of us] who are spiritually mature and full-grown have this mind and hold these convictions Phil 3:14-15
I think this is a MAJOR issue in our TIME – a heaven focus. We must start to see the Heavenly Government- the Council, hear the Voice that now speaks, participate in the Eternal viewpoint. We have been bogged down for too long with things that just don’t matter like circular debates, pop star ministries, the next thing. Things that don’t satisfy the deepest longings of the human heart for Heavenly Glory.
There is a Welsh word for this I have found- it’s called HIRAETH – which is a deep homesickness, a deep longing for the land (usually Wales! -but in my case Heaven). John G. Lake said- that kind of hunger and longing is birthed out of God, not manufactured. There has to be a response to the void.
Do you feel it? Not a void of position, security or understanding our identity but a void of actual manifestation. A longing to see that which has already been given to us in Christ. To participate in that which has already been released through the Cross. The battle is on for a new era – and we run headlong into it.
Shawn Bolz says-
“The devil resist and even prostitutes the subject of eternity for us, because Satan is jealous of our role in it. Keeping us from eternity is his ultimate goal. Satan works overtime to distract us from who we are and to occupy us in lesser roles. If he can do this to the Church, he will continue to dominate the world, because we have failed to engage in a rightful Kingdom dominion.”
It’s time for change!
“…about the pending revival, that has been a major warning that I ‘ve been putting out for almost two years now. I really got a warning from God about how big the worldwide awakening is going to be and how unprepared for it we are. It is going to hit us like a Tsunami and we need to brace right now to get to the high ground. And that high ground is being seated with Jesus in heavenly places. That can’t just be a doctrine. We have got to be there and get ready for what is coming. So, yes, I can’t emphasize that enough. How important it is and how big it is going to be, it is going to be overwhelming.”
There is a company coming who will forever be beholding his face like Enoch. They also like Paul have “set their mind on things above” – they have paid a personal price through choices and not following the crowds. They have given themselves to the heavenly vision.
That’s my heart. It’s not for everyone and I am sure some would criticise me for it – and I have heard the arguments over and over – but let God be the Judge of our hearts. Radical Christianity is rising again and it’s not going to fit the ways and thinking of the world. It’s going to be from Above, that we might say like John the Beloved-
[We are writing] about the Word of Life [in] Him Who existed from the beginning, Whom we have heard, Whom we have seen with our [own] eyes, Whom we have gazed upon [for ourselves] and have touched with our [own] hands. 1 John 1
We press on…
Thanks for reading. Thanks for letting me share heart today. Cheers!
