God has a dream for His people. This dream has been alive since Eden. Even after the fall, even after Abrahams days were long gone, Even after the first stone tablets were broken by Moses due to Israel’s idolatry, God kept His dream alive. And he shared His dream with His people when He declared “That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the Lord swore unto your fathers to give them, as the DAYS OF HEAVEN ON THE EARTH. (Deuteronomy 11:21)”
Heaven on earth is promise to Abraham and all his children. Heaven on earth is not just the end game in fact it is the way of life the generous father dreams up for his redeemed children.
2 Corinthians 6:16 says “What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they will be my people.”
People who live experiencing heaven on earth will have no business with the modern day versions of idols which range from social media addiction, ungodly relationships and habits. It’s that simple. Taste of heaven to discern the difference between the baser pleasures the world has to offer and the better joys at Gods right hand. God chose to accept those who believe in Christ to be consecrated as His abode so that he may walk among us and live with us.
Paul demonstrated what days of heaven on earth can feel like. Its beyond natural, its beyond our expectations, its beyond our comprehension.
In Acts 27:13-25 A ship headed to Creta is experiencing a storm at sea that they lose all hope. With no food no light no direction the people on board have been in peril for days. While the rest of the people with Paul are without hope, fearing death at sea, Paul is busy experiencing Heaven’s angel declaring to Him that no harm will come to anyone on board. So Paul, a prisoner on the ship stands tall and tells all two hundred and seventy six passengers to “take courage! For I believe God. It will be just as he said.(Acts:27:25)” Paul declares the nature of God’s word and promises in the middle of impossible circumstances because he found he could taste of heaven no matter what he faced.
Paul says, “That is why I am suffering here in prison. But I am not ashamed of it, for I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until the day of his return.” (Timothy 1:12). You may be facing a violent storm that rocks your boat, the enemy feel like a lion roaring into your face, the weapons against you may appear Formidable!
BUT KNOW YOUR GOD IN THE MIDST OF ALL THE TROUBLE. THE SPIRIT DWELLS In you so that you May SPEAK THE WORD OF GOD OVER YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES. And that’s how the people of God birth days of heaven on earth!
