culture of heaven

When We See Him We Shall Know Him For We Shall Be Like Him

Some days, things seem clearer than others and we see further than we ever thought possible. Today, on the day that we celebrate Christ’s birth, I wish you a Merry Christmas. Moreover, I wish to share with you good tidings.

We are on the cusp of momentous events, which have been foretold for generations. Soon, we will see the manifestation of the sons of God and the defeat of Satan for 1000 years. During that 1000 years, God redeems Israel in preparation to receive Jesus Christ as their Messiah. However, before all this, God brings forth His Holy, Spotless Bride. Those who read this have an opportunity to be part of that loving company.

Be part of the culture of heaven

The spiritual fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles is essentially the establishment of the culture of Heaven here on earth. It is the fulfillment, in part, of Christ’s prayer that his Father’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

As we yield to the Holy Spirit, it is a foretaste of the world to come, we become like Christ. Jesus demonstrated the attributes of a New Heavens and New Earth culture that we are called to emulate.

We return good for evil and bless those who spitefully use us. If someone strikes us on one cheek, we turn the other cheek towards them in love, making ourselves vulnerable. We believe all things, hope all things, bear all things. Our love never fails, because it is the love of God that flows through us. We are peacemakers, willing that none should perish, but all should have eternal life. In short, we manifest or reveal the culture of heaven to the people of earth.

When we meet him we shall be like him

Moreover, when we see Him, (Jesus Christ) we shall be like him. In that day, when we meet Him in the air, He is not a surprise, but a kindred spirit. This is because that same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in us. Heaven is not so much a surprise, but a homecoming to a place we know intimately. The rapture doesn’t cleanse us, we are already without spot or wrinkle, a fully formed Bride of Christ. Prior to the rapture, we walk as Jesus walked and talk as Jesus talked being the Body of Christ.

Many occupy the byways of this world having no idea they are invited to the marriage of the Lamb. Moreover, it is incumbent upon us to go out and compel them to come in. We must go and they must come for His joy to be full.

God’s star still leads wise men to Christ

In conclusion, if you are different, if you are outside the norm of Christianity, do not feel bad. The way of the wilderness does, eventually, lead to the promised land. The star that the wise men followed, created by the Holy Spirit, still leads us to Christ, and if you follow it, it will lead you to Him, too.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

Michael
