Living in Heaven and Earth… at the same time

26 Sep

In the Old Testament there were times when the heavens were “locked in silence” or “as brass”.  But in the New Covenant we are securely seated in heaven with Christ… yet our feet are still on terra firma (earth) (John 3:13).  In other words, we are living in both worlds simultaneously.   So if we can believe it, we are the portal/door between heaven and earth.  

How does this work?  As we gain the mind of Christ, we begin to learn to exercise authority over earthly matters from our heavenly position… just as He does.

Nothing eternal or supernatural occurs on earth without that change originating in heaven.  And since our primary place of residence is now in heaven, this positions us to partner with Jesus in rulership over the kingdoms of this earth.   What an amazing plan… and what a magnanimous God to call us co-heirs with Christ… and purpose that we would share in ruler-ship with Him.

“Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.” (Matt 16:19 NASB)Give the keys

Saints who are growing in understanding of their amazing identity and position in Christ begin to learn a new norm of living in and from the heavenlies with Christ.   This empowers us to truly rule like we were designed to… and commissioned to… from the beginning. 

God’s speed fellow saints… we’re just beginning to learn how incredible our Father’s thoughts are for us.  From before the beginning He had always planned to share all He is with us!!!   He even gives us the keys to the family ‘car’!

What a Dad!!
