Jesus is Lord of His Kingdom. His Kingdom dwells wherever He is King – which is in you and I. Christ is seated upon the throne of our hearts as well as at the right hand of the Father. Our call is to be seated with Him in heavenly places, which enables the atmosphere of heaven, its divine nature and economy that is ours in Christ, to permeate our entire being. As Jesus declared,
” Neither shall they say, ‘Lo, it is here!’ or ‘Lo, it is there!’ For behold, the Kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:21).
When our belief system is renewed with the mind of Christ and His truth, our hearts filled with the love of the Father, our spirit saturated with the life of His presence, and our soul filled with the divine nature of heaven, we are able to reveal the Kingdom of God “on earth as He is in heaven. “
From the finished work of Christ, we are blessed with ALL spiritual blessings in heavenly places (Eph. 1:3). Jesus gave to us the keys to Heaven’s economy when He said, “Seek ye FIRST the Kingdom of God and All these things will be added unto you. The addition of blessings, fruitfulness and prosperity – the more abundant life, all comes from heavenly places that is ours in Christ Jesus.
As join heirs with Jesus, we have an inheritance. Our call is not only to live in heaven’s economy, but also to reveal the nature of heaven in us and it’s addition, power and authority, through us. As we give to others that which we have been freely given, the floodgates of heaven are open. As the apostle Paul tells us,
“But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received from you the things which were sent to me, an odor of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God. My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
The economy of heaven will supply all our needs as we faithfully give to others as the Lord directs our giving. Jesus said the Kingdom of heaven is at hand “Freely you have received; freely give” (Mt. 10:8). The key to receiving all that you need according to the riches of Christ is by freely giving to others. In doing so, you are given more.
Rather than seeking for an outpouring, God is looking for those saturated with the life of heaven to become the outpouring. As the prophet Isaiah proclaimed, in the midst of the greatest darkness, the light of God’s glory will shine even brighter, so much so, that the glory of God will become visible upon His people.
Nations will then come to partake of the light of your rising (Is. 60:1-11). It is the light of His glory that gives true authority that works by love, releases the power of the Spirit, attracts a harvest, brings prosperity and releases the great grace of heaven that gives testimony of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
Today is a new day. You are called for such a time as this. Rise and shine for your light HAS come and the glory of the Lord HAS risen upon YOU.
IN His heart with love – Roy
