Mt 6:10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on (upon) earth as it is in heaven.
This week in Nyack, we enjoyed breakfast with good friends.
We listened to the Holy Spirit and prayed for each other.
The word spoken to me came from an excerpt of Matthew 6:10; “On (upon) earth as it is in heaven.”
The Greek explains as such.
“In precisely the same way that it occurs in heaven, let it happen upon the earth.”
Heb 8:5 who unto an example and shadow do serve of the heavenly things, as Moses hath been divinely warned, being about to construct the tabernacle, for ‘See (saith He) thou mayest make all things according to the pattern that was shewn to thee in the mount’;) —
Heb 10:1 For the law having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the image itself of the things, can never with the same sacrifices, which they offer continually every year, make those approaching perfect.
Rev 11:19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
We note in Revelations that there is an Ark of the Covenant in heaven.
Moses had built another one on the earth.
Everything which God commands us to do on the earth, already exists in heaven.
Hebrews calls this the shadow of the image of the things.
What’s in heaven casts a shadow on the earth as it is lit by God’s glory.
The key to the anointing is to replicate the shadow the best we can.
We call this the pattern on the mount.
The real deals exist in the heavens.
The pattern on the mount, is the blueprints of these things.
The mount is the place of disclosure for the blueprints.
Disclosure occurs in our spirit.
The Ark of the Covenant which Moses built, is the blueprint, or shadow, of the Ark in the Book of Revelations.
Anointing and power are proportional to how meticulously we follow the shadow or build upon the blue prints.
Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
The Christian is already blessed with all that she needs.
However, that everything, is in heavenly places and not earthy ones.
If the church is to be remarkable and stand out in a very busy world, it will not occur by engaging culture wars.
That is mediocracy.
Neither will it be by enticing people through a watered down gospel.
This is lame.
There is no time in history in which this fallen world enjoys an abundance of the very good and the very very good.
Being the very good is no longer, good enough.
The church’s remarkability is her capability to take the moment by moment activities of heaven and unleash them upon the earth.
No other society can accomplish this.
It must start with you and me.
We can’t wait for the other guy to do it, because he won’t.
Living continually in the Spirit, or 24/ 7 in heavenly places, and unleashing its activities upon the earth, is the most challenging thing.
It costs you everything.
But with that cost you enjoy a most astounding life.
What greater love can a man have for his neighbor than to demonstrate the glorious activities of God and the angels upon this earth?
On earth, as it is in heaven!
