Did you ever think that you are heaven touching earth? Jesus seems to think so. He placed us in heavenly places with Him (Eph.2:6), and He’s in heaven. Yet, you live right here on the earth.
So…are we in heaven or on the earth? The answer, of course, is yes.
And did you know that one of the last things that Isaiah prophesied was about you. Let’s look at what He said.
“Heaven is My throne,
And earth is My footstool.
Where is the house that you will build Me?
And where is the place of My rest?” (Isa.66:1 NKJV)
So, where is the house that God built? Where is the place of His rest?
Let’s do the math.
You’re seated with Christ, and He’s seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven.
And His footstool is on the earth, and you are on the earth, so you are at His footstool.
You are where His throne and His footstool connect…
Between heaven and earth…
Beloved, YOU are that place of rest.
And this is true whether you realize it or not, feel worthy or not. You are God’s house– where He rests–24/7.
So you might as well learn to rest in Him.
So let’s take it a step further…
YOU are where heaven touches earth!
On that point, I want to share a recording that comes from our time of worship a couple of Sundays ago. It starts with a song led by Arleena called, “Spirit Break Out” (see info below). I’ve included the first four minutes of the song and the lyrics to provide context for what comes after.
As often happens during worship, there are prophetic words, revelations…you know normal Christian stuff that goes on when you meet (See 1 Cor.14:26). This time was no exception. First, you will hear a word from David about our identity and finding fulfillment and joy from heaven doing what we were created to do, which was awesome. Then my wife, Maureen, shared something profound. She said that WE are heaven touching earth.
That means…wherever we walk, heaven touches earth.
Beloved, do you know this about yourself? You are a walking place of rest, God’s conduit between heaven and earth!
And your worship is the sound of heaven touching earth.
Can you hear it?
And why did God constitute us this way, living simultaneously in two realms–our citizenship in heaven from which we live here on earth? (Phil.3:20)
Because that’s the way Jesus lived, for He said He came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven (John 3:13).
Because this orphan-hearted world needs to know its not homeless or separated anymore–that they can know a life lived in the Father’s embrace.
And you’re God’s instrument to do just that!
So, I invite you to take a few minutes, listen to the song and exhortations to us. And while you do, ponder this reality and ask the Lord to show you who you really are…because you’re pretty awesome!
Let the Spirit break out in you!
