  • Possessing Heaven
    Friday, August 4, 2023
    In Matthew 5:3 Messiah says, "For theirs is the kingdom." Not theirs "will be," but theirs "is." The kingdom belongs to the children of God - now. Heaven and earth are connected. We can't truly own anything on earth because it's temporal. The only things we can and are supposed to own are heavenly possessions. It's okay to be possessive about heaven. The Scripture says "Rejoice for your reward is great in heaven." You should know what you own in heaven and rejoice in it. Rejoice because your name's in the Lamb's book of life. The reason we get possessive of earthly thing is because we're not possessing things in heaven. Rejoice over what you have in heaven and you won't be possessive about earth or covet what you don't have. Start realizing you own a piece of heaven, more than a piece, the whole kingdom. You're rich. You're blessed. That's enough to live a life of joy and let go of petty, earthly and temporary things. Because you have something so much better. Live as someone who's rich, blessed and joyous. For yours, yes yours, is the kingdom of heaven.
    From Message #724 - Heaven and Earth as One
    Today's Mission
    Don't let temporary things take your focus away from your eternal possessions. Be joyful today that your treasure is in heaven.
