Our focus as Christians’ is to enter Heaven at the end of our journey here on earth. We’re too focused on this that we have lost sight of who we are. This has reduced our kingdom productivity. The truth is, we aren’t here on earth. We’re citizens of heaven.
Receive the abundance of grace for the increase in your knowledge of God and His word today through this message in the name of Jesus Christ. From today, as your orientation changes, your results change as well for your good in the name of Jesus.
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Ephesians 2:4-6 (KJV)
Our opening scripture says, “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved ;).” We had no part in God until He decided to make us a part of Him. A lot of Christians know that we’re saved by grace but they don’t actually know what salvation is.
Look at that verse again. It says when we were dead in sin. We had no life in righteousness. A dead man it’s conscious of his surrounding though he is there. We were in the mist of the righteousness of God but we were dead to it. We couldn’t see it. We couldn’t partake of it. We were blind to it. It never existed. Then something happened.
God gave us life. He gave us His own kind of life. You know we have different kinds of life. We have the human life; we have the animal life; the plant life; etc. He didn’t give us any of those lives. He gave us His own kind of life. This life can only exist in the celestial, not in the terrestrial.
You can’t take a man to Mars without oxygen and expect him to live. In fact, the day the oxygen he took on his journey gets exhausted, he dies. Why? Because he doesn’t have the kind of life that can live on Mars. He may like the place and want to live there but his kind of life will always stop him.
Now God’s life isn’t terrestrial life. It’s a celestial life. When he gave us this life, we cease to be terrestrial. We were taken from the terrestrial into the celestial. This life can’t live on earth. Once it enters a man, it takes him to heaven immediately.
Pay attention to this. God gave us the same kind of life that He gave Christ that made him able to be lifted from the earth in the view of the disciples into the heaven. Let’s look at it in Acts 1:9.
And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
While they looked on, he was taken up. The life took him up because the life can’t stay on earth. The life of God either takes you up to heaven or it leaves you behind on earth. It can’t stay on earth with you. This is why we’re wonders to the world. They can’t see what we see and can’t do what we do. We see heavenly things because that is where we live.
Back to our opening scripture, the life of God that raise us from the dead took us up and have us comfortably sited with Christ in heaven. The life of God is only comfortable in heaven that is while once it raises a man, it takes him right into heaven. It says we’re sited not wondering about.
You see the kingdom of God has principles. When you begin to engage those principles heaven begins to manifest in you and around you. But one who doesn’t apply them can live in heaven and be experiencing hell. That is not you in the name of Jesus Christ. From today your story is changing for the better.
You may ask before Jesus’ death and resurrection, didn’t he have the life of God? Was he not on earth before his death and resurrection? Let see what Jesus told Nicodemus about his residence.
And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
John 3:13 (KJV)
You see, Jesus the son of man was in heaven the moment he was speaking to Nicodemus. Jesus was never a citizen of the earth. Though people saw him as a citizen of Israel, a brother, a carpenter, etc he never saw himself as one. He was always making reference to his Father and heaven. The people were always angry with him because he didn’t identify with them. He was always identifying with God and heaven.
It’s what you say that count for or against you not what others say. Your word is a product of our consciousness. Are you conscious of who you’re and where you’re? These are the difference makers in the kingdom of God; divine presence and divine consciousness.
It says even the son of man which is in heaven not who was in heaven. That’s while he was able to see what the father was doing to do the same (Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. – John 5:19). And no one can see what the Father is doing except he is in heaven.
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
John 3:3 (KJV)
Salvation takes us from the domain of men into the domain of God. We’re saved from the earth into heaven. We’re not on earth working our way into heaven. No! We’re in heaven working out heaven on earth. We’re partnering with God to make the earth a better place before we’re called home to be rewarded for our partnership.
Jesus said in John 20:21, as the Father has sent me, so have I sent you. God sent Jesus to bring heaven to the earth and not to work his way back to heaven. The bible said of Jesus, “everywhere he went, he was doing go.” He wasn’t doing good in some places and doing badly in some. He was a carrier of heavens goodness. You’re on a special assignment to the kingdom of God to men.
However, the fulfillment of this assignment starts with the assurance of your place in God and the consciousness of that placing. You see you can be a superman but if you don’t know it. You will die like a chicken (Psalm 82:5-6).
Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women, there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
Matt 11:11 (KJV)
All the men of exploits in the kingdom of God before John couldn’t be compared to John in potential. Yet most of them executed more exploit than him.
Potential is nothing without engagement.
But the least in the kingdom, which is a born again, is greater than John the greatest of all the Old Testament prophets. I prophesy over you, you shall not die with the potentials God has given you in the name of Jesus. Wisdom to release those potential is given to you right now. Receive it now in the name of Jesus.
You can’t be in heaven and suffer what the earth is suffering. Now whatever challenge belittling your identity and place in God is cast out of your life and environment in the name of Jesus Christ.
Become a wonder to your world in the name of Jesus Christ.
If you’re not saved, you can’t make it to heaven. If you want to become a citizen of heaven, join us to make the following prayers from the depth of your heart with all sincerity.

In the name of Jesus the Christ, whatever that makes you weep is declared over right now. I cursed that predicament from the root in the name of Jesus. As that fig tree dried up within 24 hours after Jesus cursed, that challenge making you weep is dead within 24 hours in the name of Jesus Christ.
From now, heaven begins to manifest in you and around you in the name of Jesus Christ.
