Sticky Sweet Heaven Stuff

Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said: 

“The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”

Then He said to the disciples, “The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. And they will say to you, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’

Do not go after them or follow them. For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day. But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 

And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 

Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

“In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. Remember Lot’s wife. Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.”
(Luke 17:20-33)

We are given the unspeakable privilege, as sons and daughters of the Most High God, to rule and reign from the Throne Room with God. 

The undefiled, bondage breaking stream of PURE ministry…only flows from the Throne Room to earth…not from earth to Heaven. 

This quickly fading temporal realm that surrounds us in our daily lives, is *UNIVERSES* less substantial than the Kingdom of our God…which is right here, right now.

Our ability to see, hear, taste, touch, and smell this Eternal Kingdom which is PRESENTLY AROUND US AND IN US…is only limited by our unwillingness to relinquish the high value we place both on our rights and on earthly sensual wisdom; also called human reasoning. 

The Father calls this earthly wisdom demonic.

When we lay hands on someone to pray for them…the Father hears our prayers as if it were Jesus Himself doing the asking.

Now I know for a fact that many of us have prayed for folks and “nothing” happened…

Here’s a thought on why.

Abiding in God is the hinge upon which ALL Kingdom provision swings.

The reality we choose to live from is the reality we release into the world around us.

Jesus beckons with a smile, “Come up higher. Lay down your life that you might take up my life.” 

That’s it. 

We exchange our fleeting, earthbound fantasy of self made kingdoms…for His Life.

Vibrant resurrection Life and explosive hope, SHINE THROUGH the rubbled carnage and despair of catastrophic impossibility.

His GOODNESS is most perfectly expressed in the Cross of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Joy is hidden in sorrow. Radiant treasures are hidden in darkness. Eternal life and exhilarating freedom are hidden in the death and agony of the Cross.

His perfect Justice is hidden in His mercy. He is terrifyingly GOOD.

The days are nearly upon us; nearly as in any second, when that which most of us have only barely understood in theory, will be the only option at hand.

Men’s hearts will fail them for fear. 

Will you be one who reaches out, with the Stuff of Heaven dripping from your fingers, and GRIPS those perishing, PULLING them as if from the flames? Have you ever singed the hair on your that I have hairy knuckles…while tending the grill on a warm summer day? 

Well, this will be nothing like that. 

I look at my baby girl, America, and watch with amusement as her slightly older brother wrinkles his nose in disgust. Not at a diaper that MUST be changed, but at the chocolate syrup smeared across her beautiful face and dripping from her tiny fingers. She ALWAYS reaches out and tries to touch something she “shouldn’t” touch when lost in the sweetness of her favorite dessert.

It’s as if she just knows that the everyday things of her Viewed From Two Feet High World, are somehow going to be much better when touched with sweet sticky stuff on her hands.

So I say this; some may recoil in fear or derision from your Heaven soaked hands during these days of relative peace on earth but get ready now, ’cause the days of peace on earth are few.

Get ready to move mountains of shattered concrete and twisted steel.

Get ready to see new eyeballs form in ruined sockets.

Get ready to see severed arms and legs grow back.

Get ready to breathe life into unclaimed bodies.

Get ready to manifest His glory in more power than we have ever seen.

And by get ready, I mean learn now, like never before, to ABIDE in Him.

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”

Be Blessed!
