THE LIFE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH

Matthew 6:10 (Weymouth) Let Thy Kingdom come; let Thy will be done, as in Heaven so on earth.

What kind of life does God want His children to live on this earth? What picture does the Word show us of this life He wants us to live? It is important for us to know who we are and why exactly we are on this earth. We need to have a clear picture of what kind of life we ought to live on this earth as children of God. Are we born again as God's very own offspring, with His life in us, to be victims of what the world is going through? If we are God's children, walking this earth to tell people of the wondrous things Christ has done for them; ought our lives not be different in function and experience from the people of this world? Ought we not live a higher life than they do; Above sin, sickness, poverty and defeat? Definitely! We are special people and our gospel is a special invitation into a special kind of life.

When you are born again, you are born from above. The word 'again' comes from the Greek word 'anothen' which means from above. So to be born again means to be born from above. The one who is born again is born anew from heaven. The born again comes from heaven. He has the life of God in him. The Bible says in Philippians 3:20 (WUEST) that:

For the commonwealth of which we are citizens has its fixed location in heaven....

We came from heaven. We are registered citizens of heaven. Therefore what kind of life should we live on this earth? We ought to live the life of heaven on earth. We have to live in the health system of heaven; the peace of heaven; the economy of heaven. Whatever is reality in heaven should be evident in our lives.

What kind of life is the life of heaven on earth? It is a life of righteousness, peace, prosperity, divine guidance, victory and divine health. It is a life of living and basking in God's divine presence.

That is what Jesus taught His disciples to pray. He said God's will be done on earth the same way it is in heaven. Ask yourself, is there poverty in heaven? Is there confusion in heaven? Is there chaos in heaven? Is there defeat in heaven? A thousand times no! We don't have to pray that prayer now because we are the fulfillment of that prayer. When you're born again, you are already commissioned to live the life of heaven on earth. Get ready to change your perspective of life and live from heaven on this earth as we take you through this journey in God's Word.

PRAYER: Dear Father I thank You for this privilege to live in the days of heaven on earth. Basking in your divine presence and experiencing the realities of heaven's life on this earth. My life is never the same. In the Name of the Lord Jesus.
