SOMETHING ON MY HEART: Just some thoughts to meditate on and pray about. It is what the Lord has been talking to me about. The Lord willing, I will expand on it later.
If the Holy Spirit abides in us then;
We are citizens (first) of HEAVEN, where the Lord Jesus lives …Phil 3:20 NLT
Above all, you must live as citizens of Heaven, Phil 1:27
And as members of the church of the Firstborn, all our names have been legally registered as citizens of heaven! Hebrews12:23 TPT
So it seems our main citizenship that is eternal is in Heaven. We have the right to every spiritual blessing in Heavenly places in Christ. Eph.1:3 This is for now.
We are told in Colossians we have been raised with Christ, we sit together with Him so we are to seek “those things” which are above. We are to set (meaning fix unmovable ) our hearts and minds on “those things” which are above, not on the things on the earth. We are to be learning every day how heaven operates. What is Heaven saying? The Kingdom of God which is within us wants to connect with Heaven and bring it to earth. This for now. It is Jesus’ plan as He prayed it in Matthew 6. So it seems we are not to discount spiritual encounters with Heaven. They are for the Glory and purposes of God on the earth. They are to teach you to be a good citizen of Heaven.
HEAVEN It is the home of our King, The Lord Jesus Christ, and our Father. Our names are registered there. It is our eternal citizenship.
Citizenship requires learning about the country and using the language and living the customs of that country. That speaks to me of being very fluent in the language of Holy Spirit and seeking to understand and live the customs and ways of the Kingdom of God. Jesus opened the door to come up for us now. (Rev,4) He is the gate we go through. He is the door we go through. He is our ladder. He is our purpose. His word is our guide into “The Fathers House in Heaven.” We can learn how to bring the power of Heaven to Earth now. We are just aliens in this world. We should not fit. But we should always be looking for His bride to be and living the witness of the Lord Jesus, releasing His fragrance everywhere all the time. TEACH US HOLY SPIRIT
