Summary: As we come into the fullness of being seated with Christ the view from heaven changes our mindsets and is a trigger for revival in our hearts and those we speak to.
We are seated with Christ in Heavenly places; the word of God tells us this truth,
As we come into the fullness of being seated with Christ the view from heaven changes our mindsets and is a trigger for revival in our hearts and those we speak to.
Eph 2:6; For he raised us from the dead along with Christ, and we are seated with him in the heavenly realms—all because we are one with Christ Jesus.
We are the carriers of His glory because of the presence of God in our lives
John14:19-20: In just a little while the world will not see me again, but you will. For I will live again, and you will, too. When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.
His life was laid down that we might gain access to the very portals of heaven, that glory might reign again in the very creation of God. His blood brings release from sin & shame to bring the fullness of all that God has and had for his creation. The blood of Jesus removes our sins as far as the east is from the west so that we might boldly enter into the very throne of God
Hebrews 4:16: So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it.
Eph 3:12; Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come fearlessly into God’s presence, assured of his glad welcome.
As His people we have chosen to sit, not in heavenly places but in the dust of worldly thinking. We are called to enter into his presence. Not just to experience a tingly feeling down our spine as he passes by, or goose bumps as we catch a glimpse of Him through the veil. But we are called to enter into the realm of the Spirit and to see from a heavenly perspective
When we speak we are called to speak out of the atmosphere of heaven, when we pray for the sick we are called to pray out of heaven, not from the earthly perspective.
When we worship we are called to worship in Spirit, our whole lives are meant to be a reflection of where we are seated.
The Lord has shown me how to preach in recent times, to see myself as an ambassador of heaven. To see myself standing on the threshold of heaven With Christ in his glory, and from there speak the atmosphere of heaven into the earthly realm. I tell you that when heaven invades earth as it does through our link with Christ, then transformation comes. Our words change, the power we see released changes, Glory is manifest on earth through signs & wonders and unusual miracles, because we are speaking out of heaven and not from the position of those who are earthly bound.
Jesus walked in this way and remember
Jesus said “These things shall you do, and greater than these because I go to my Father” (John14:12)
Jesus was operating from a heavenly perspective all the time; for instance when he called Nathaniel; (John 2:47-51) Jesus said “I saw you under a fig tree.” He was seeing Nathaniel and his heart not as men see from an earthly perspective, but from a heavenly perspective. The same with the story of Lazarus (John11) Jesus wasn’t hurried or fazed by the circumstance, because he was seeing the event from heavens perspective. In verse 40 he says “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” All the miracles he saw from heavens perspective and when he spoke He only spoke what He heard from heaven.
