And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
I have a brother who is running marathons and when he started running the family never thought of him as a comrades marathon runner. He is very passionate about running and is recruiting all family members to also run. I have observed him develop healthy habits gradually to a point where these habits have become his second nature. Some examples of these habits are eating health, keeping his running schedule and using staircase instead of an elevator.Why am I sharing this story is because it is similar to us getting used to living as Heavenly citizens.
In the last episode we spoke about people who understood how to live on earth as well as heaven and most questions I have received were on the how and what were the benefits of dual citizenship. The how is the same as preparing for running marathons, you don’t wake up one day and say tomorrow I am going to run a marathon. Steps which are critical which needs to be developed as habits are to create private time daily to praise, worship, pray, read the word, quiet yourself, listen to God speak, allow Holy Spirit to lead and show you heavenly secrets. In the beginning it will be difficult to quiet your yourself because your mind will be flooded with various thoughts but I advice you to focus on breathing in and out since this will help you to get in tune all the time. When you commit to your schedule and commit to practising visiting heavenly realms , you will develop the habit and you will be in tune to living in heavenly realms regularly.
The benefits are plenty lets talk about peace our earthy home does not have peace and you can not know peace when you are on earth. You will be consumed by fear and troubles but when you spend time in heavenly realms you will find peace that exceed your expectation which would be the same like that of Jesus in the sea when everyone was afraid but he was sleeping peacefully because he was seated with his father in heavenly realms John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. In this peaceful place you will also experience joy that will keep you happy and full of hope.Romans 15:13Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, in the power of the Holy Spirit. The peace, joy and hope will be your habits as a heavenly citizen, remember you cannot give what you do not have. The earth cannot give you peace, joy and hope since it does not know how to have peace but heaven is a peaceful, joyful and hopeful place so you will get refilled and learn to keep them.
The earth as much as it has plenty but everyone lives in the lack, we fight for the resources and everything. It is a place of survival of the fittest and everyone for themselves. In heaven you will learn to live in abundance and know that the king is your father and he is rich in everything and as a heavenly citizen you will not be consumed by thinking about what to eat, wear etc 2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: Life in the heavenly realms in not a struggle because everything is in abundance and when things happen on earth they won’t bother you because you live constantly in a better place and as you spend more time in the heavenly realms you can even see things before they happen and when they happen you will not be amazed. 1 Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
Lots of love see you in the next episode
