And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, Ephesians 2:6
This is the truth! We are right now in Heaven but most of the time we do not acknowledge it. Naturally, I can understand that this truth can be shocking but I am not only natural. I am actually a spiritual being, living in a body of flesh.
We all agree (if this verse above is true and it is) that we are not physically in Heaven. We are not physically in Heaven but we are in Heaven spiritually.
Many do not realise that we are spirit, living in bodies of flesh. We need to receive the truth by faith and little by little by little, our natural minds will be renewed.
The Lord told us through the apostle Paul, “…Be transformed by the renewing of your mind..” Romans 12:2
Why do we need to be transformed?
Because our natural mind, (the carnal or fleshly one) cannot comprehend spiritual truth. I am paraphrasing 1 Corinthians 2:14.
Not going to Heaven because…
We are already in Heaven.
We are in Heaven but because our mind is set on earthly things, therefore we do not realise this amazing truth! We are already in Heaven Yooohoooo!! 🙂
Heaven is the spiritual realm where Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father. Heaven is the Headquarter of humanity. It is where we have our origin and our substance.
God created a physical body for us so we can experience a journey on earth 🙂 but the truth is that we exist before our natural birth day. We are all in Christ, we are all in heaven, we are all seated in the heavenly places but how many of us acknowledge it, believe it and enjoy all its benefits?
Praise the Lord who directed you on this website so you can read those words. Those words are spirit and life and their purpose is to help you to realise who you truly are. I know that the natural mind will always reject the truth. It cannot be otherwise. But the good news is we have the power to renew our natural mind so it can be set on heavenly things. Wow!!!! I’m so excited as I’m writing this. 🙂
Indeed we have the power to renew our mind and we do so when we choose to believe in the truth. When you choose to believe in the truth, which is so strange for your natural mind but makes perfect sense to your heart (your spirit), you actually are in the process on renewing your mind.
Understanding that you are a spiritual being will change everything in your perspective and in your life.
Spirit + Body of flesh
Contrary to the angels, human beings do have a physical body.
And contrary to the animals, human beings do have a spirit.
We are very unique and special in God’s eyes.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9
We are the only ones that are in both Physical and Spiritual worlds.
We can communicate with earthly beings but we can also communicate with heavenly beings.
More than that, the Lord has elevated to a place that we are actually reigning with Him over all the creation, spiritual and physical. I think you need to take a breath to embrace this amazing truth.
We have a physical language but also and heavenly language, a physical place to live but also a heavenly one, we are in heaven and on earth at the same time. Praise the Lord for revealing this amazing truth to his children (those who believe in Him).
There will be more on this topic in another post as there is so much to say.
Meanwhile, be encouraged by what you heard from the Lord today.
