"To be seated in heavenly Places,
Just like Heaven,
Just like Heaven on Earth!
To be walking in His favor and grace is
Just like Heaven,
Just like Heaven on Earth!
See His glory feels like Heaven on Earth."
When I heard these lyrics from Micah Stampley's amazing worship song "Heaven On Earth" it surely made my soul leap. Why? Because as I taught over the weekend that I have felt something shift in my spirit over the last few months of 2017. I have felt an anticipation that I haven't felt in quite sometime, and I know that it's the anticipation of what is to come with the transition of the seasons and times. We have entered a year that will carry with it regeneration, resurrection and breakthrough power that will carry with it the Lord’s strength and power. It will be an epic year that He will accomplish things that we are not able to do in our own strength. 2017 we declared was the year of "Victory," and we saw His great light and received revelation that brought victory. And He will continue to make good on His promises concerning many matters that began last year. We will be seated in Heavenly Places. We will walk in unprecedented favor and grace. Just like heaven on earth.
The Lord will also seal, solidify and secure what He began. It is especially true to those who have been diligent and faithful towards Him. Many of us have toiled in our spirit about relationships, finances, careers, family, the state of the world. Many of us are bogged down with the frustration, pain and the hurt of disappointments and rejections. But we have now entered into a time of revival where the outpouring of His Spirit will cleanse and begin to move us into new places and revelatory truth that we have not been before. Our sight, our ability to see into the realm of the spirit will be enhanced so that our spiritual eyes will see way beyond what is being presented to our minds, and as a result our understanding becomes enlightened by the Spirit of God working in us. We are entering a Divine Year where we will break through walls and veils to see new things! Worship warriors liken to David will disclose secrets and mysteries because they have broken through the wall to understand God's heart.
I want to encourage all of you reading this that our Father is ready and willing to bring His Word to pass thru your life. However, it is through our co-operation and co-laboring with Him that the supernatural is manifested in the natural. We are His vessels and we are the gateways through which His glory will be displayed on the earth. This is done through intimacy, engaging the realm of heaven, and declaring what you see and hear that brings heaven to earth, then walking in an obedient faith! Press into Him more than you ever have before. Ask Him for a release of divine hunger that will drive you deeper into Him. We have been given a mandate of the highest importance to carry the Kingdom of God with us everywhere we go and to release this Kingdom through everything we do. We are called by Christ to bring heaven to earth. Everything that is happening in heaven should be happening on earth.
How much of heaven will God manifest on earth thru you?
You have bee called to be the "gateways" of heaven and manifest the Kingdom realm to everyone around us. Many strive in the natural to see the promises of God brought to pass but it's only as we access heavenly realms and enter into divine friendship with God that promises are fulfilled. When this happens I know that it will be as our Micah Stampley song says so profoundly:
"There will be lightning and thunder,
Miracles and wonder,
Sound of many waters,
Heaven on Earth!"
"Father may every person that reads this have a heavenly visitation from you. Just one moment with you can shake the foundations of their lives. I pray for the spirit of wisdom and revelation to be increased in greater measures so that your people might engage Your supernatural realms of heaven to experience You. Holy Spirit, I pray that you would reveal yourself to every person reading this and cause a boldness to be rest upon them so that they may be vessels who truly cause heaven to invade earth!"
