Experiencing Heaven while living on the Earth
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven
Several years ago, the words “Heavenly Moments” were coined by the Holy Spirit after a series of events. I began to experience peace, joy and hope during moments of pain, frustration, and difficulties. These happenings and occurrences continued over the years which made me realize that although we live in a fallen and sin-ridden world, as people of God we can experience these moments on earth.
The Bible declares: “Therefore if any man be in Christ; he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV).
According to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, the word new means: “having recently come into existence, of recent origin, having been seen, used, or known for a short time.” Beloved, if Christ is your Savior, you are a new creation. You are of a new origin. Yes! You are! The old person does not exist any longer and you can experience all the joys of heaven regardless of your earthly condition or position.
You have become a “chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people.” You have been called out of darkness into God’s marvelous light ( 1 Peter 2:9 paraphrased).
Furthermore, you are now the spiritual temple of the Holy Spirit ( 1 Corinthians 6:19). Once the veil was ripped in two in the temple, it signified that God no longer resided there. He now dwells within His people. Ephesians 2:22 confirms this truth. It reads: “In whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”
Yes! My brothers and sisters, that earthly temple no longer exists. It was destroyed in 70 AD.
So, you have been given a new name, a new mind-set, a new paradigm. You are being changed and restored to fellowship and intimacy with God intended for you before the foundation of the world.
You can now enjoy “heavenly moments” in the heavenly realm here and now. You are heavenly citizens with new hearts and new spirits. You do not have to wait any longer to experience the joys and glory of heaven. It is here ! It is now!
