Living in Heaven on Earth
God wants us to enjoy a much higher life on earth than we can imagine. You do not have to die and go to heaven in order to enjoy heaven. All the benefits and blessings of heaven are available to each and every one of us here on earth. We need to have a revelation of this and catch it in our spirits.
1 John 4:17 - “As He is so are we in this world.”
Luke 11:2 - So He said to them, "When you pray, say: our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
God has not called us or small or insignificant things, but for the supernatural things on earth. When we talk about heaven on earth we talk about the things in heaven that can manifest in our lives and on the earth. These things are a reality. We can live in a supernatural environment of heaven.
God’s Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom. It is the only kingdom that will never pass away. The influence of Satan’s kingdom is everywhere and very visible and obvious. However, his kingdom is temporary and the Word teaches us that the devil will be evicted from heaven and earth and his influence will cease in the very near future.
Invest in God’s Kingdom because the world as it is today will soon be gone because it is temporary. However, God’s Kingdom will stand forever. That is a good place to invest. Serve Him with your whole heart, mind, and soul and you will never regret it.
The devil is a created being and the reason why he hates people is because we look like God and he does not. He rebelled against God and wanted to be like God but we are more like God than what the devil is.
We are living in a season where God is taking back His Kingdom and He is raising up His children to rule with Him. When a baby is born, the conflict over this person’s live will begin between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan begins and this battle will only cease when that person is in the grave. God has called us to live without conflict and wars in our lives and if we can grasp this revelation, we will be positioned to rule on the earth in our lifetime and during our life on earth.
Perhaps there is conflict in our community or city, but we do not have to participate in it. We live under a different set of rules to ordinary people in the world and they are generally living in hell on earth either knowingly or unknowingly.
We are representatives of heaven on earth and heaven must manifest in our lives so that we can how others another way. Through our lives and the authority we have, we can show the world who our King is.
Too many Christian are fighting the devil but there are things we can do to circumvent and cut off his influence and power that is targeted against us. We can choose to evict him totally from our lives and make sure he does not frustrate us and implement demonic assignments against us.
Being under the rule of heaven means we exercise the authority of heaven and access heaven’s benefits and rewards each and every day. Our authority makes our lives on earth heaven. That means it does not matter whether we live in heaven or earth because the benefits and the environment are the same.
"Heaven is a place on earth" is the title of a song recorded by Belinda Carlisle, the lead singer of the go-go's. Written by rick Nowels and Ellen Shipley, it hit number one on the billboard hot 100 on December 5, 1987.
Oh, baby do you know what that's worth?
Oh, heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven, love comes first
We'll make heaven a place on earth
Oh, heaven is a place on earth
You may wonder why the words of a worldly rock song are being used as an example to the church. If we do not use these words, then the devil is going use them and deceive people into thinking that enjoying his kingdom benefits is like living in heaven. We are the ones who should be writing these songs.
Living in heaven on earth is not an inconceivable concept. The entire Bible is not just theory, but a practical living way. Many Christians know about authority, blessings, covenant, etc., but if these things are not pursued, it will remain a theory only and will never manifest practically. All the blessings of heaven promised in the Word are possibilities only. We have to make it a living reality.
