It is no secret that we live in dangerous times – wars, the rise and fall of world governments, woke culture, and so much more. These events are evidence of the increase of the Kingdom of darkness, with its practices and lifestyle. Jesus clearly stated that we do not belong and should have no alignment with the Kingdom of darkness. As believers, we belong to a different kingdom with another mandate – we are not of this world.
For many of us, there is a direct tension
1. We would all love to see our King return as soon as possible, but:
2. How do we navigate between these two realms, the heavenly and the earthly?
3. How do we live during this time of sorrow that the earth encounters?
Our citizenship is not earthly
We understand that our citizenship is not of this earth. Our heavenly mandate must strengthen us during this time. The Church must have the revelation that our calling is from a different realm. Jesus understood His calling as He stated He was sent by His Father to do His will. He was commissioned to earth and given all authority from His Father’s throne. As believers, activities and decisions must generate a response with this premise: What is Heaven’s perspective on the matter? Living and making decisions from a heavenly perspective will bring the realities of Heaven into everyday life. In addition, Heaven’s perspective releases discernment, a sense of stability, more significant breakthroughs in decision making, and a host of other benefits.
A heavenly perspective
Renewing and training your thought processes to Heaven’s perspective affects your Spirit man. These two work in synergy when the Spirit is built up through prayer and reading the Word. With the meditation and reflection of our Spirit man’s message, we begin to re-energise and renew our minds to Heaven’s perspective on the matter. Believers who live from Heaven’s perspective have a heightened sense of authority, destiny, security, and purpose as earthly systems no longer control them and a worldly narrative. SELAH!
