Open Heaven

God opened the heavens to send forth His Son our Saviour – the Lord Jesus Christ.
Ever since He has been shaking the earth as the Kingdom of God breaks in upon the earth (Haggai 2:6&21; Hebrews 12:25-29).
Earth invading heaven with its justice, joy & peace, salvation, healing & deliverance.
God pouring out His blessings upon His people & upon this planet.


Oh, that You would rend the heavens!
That You would come down!
That the mountains might shake at Your presence— Isaiah 64:1


Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the LORD of hosts,
“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:10


God came down in the person of Jesus Christ.
Through the incarnation of Christ heaven came to earth in unprecedented ways.
God moving like never before to defeat the powers of sin, death & evil in this world.
In Christ a decisive & eternal victory was won.
That victory ensures that heaven will reverse the curse to come fully upon this earth (Revelation 22:1-5). Hallelujah!

If we will give God His rightful place & serve him faithfully then He will pour out heaven’s blessings upon us.
That is the way to live under an open heaven. To put Jesus first & to live in full obedience to Him.
As ever God’s blessings, the blessings of heaven, are lavishly abundant.
God desires that His blessings overtake us!! How wonderful is that.
That is because in heaven there is always abundance – always more than enough. Hallelujah!

In, & through, Christ heaven’s door was permanently opened to us.
No one can close the doors that God opens wide (Revelation 3:8; 4:1).
Jesus holds the key to that door. Will we keep trusting & looking unto Him.
As we do we will see his blessings poured out.
Oh what a mighty saviour. Oh what a mighty, majestic God.


For Reflection

  • In what ways am I experiencing God’s blessings right now?
  • What open doors from God do I see before me right now? Have I the courage to seize hold of them?
  • Meditate on heaven’s abundance coming to this earth.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you for Your great love & grace revealed in Christ Your Son & my Saviour,
Thank you that through His death & resurrection I now live under an open heaven.
Jesus help me to see & seize the doors You have opened for me,
And to walk in obedience so that Your blessings might freely flow in & through my life.
Teach me to sense & respond readily to Your Holy Spirit,
So that You might bring more of heaven to this earth through me.
This I ask in, & through, Your mighty Name.
Amen
