Encountering The Heavens

Updated: May 25, 2023

The first and foremost item we have to address first is do you know that we live in a spiritual and physical world?


The physical world is the Earth and the Heavens is the spiritual world (the Kingdom of God)

.Matthew 6:33

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

Jesus speaks about the Kingdom of God and that is the heavens. The earth is a replicate of everything in heaven. The reason we know this is because Satan fell from heaven as an angel and is now the ruler of the earth.


When we encounter the heavens we must understand God is the Father, Judge and Friend. As we go to him and spend time with him we enter into his presence and as God is a spiritual being, omnipresent we enter into the Heavens with him. The atmosphere changes.


There is something called the courts of Heaven and there is a great book written by Robert Henderson - Operating in the Courts of Heaven. It explains how in the spirit we need to address and cut off things in the court of heaven. Just like the court system on Earth we must go to God as the judge, (God will always pass judgement on all cases for he is true and has integrity). God is the judge, Satan is the accuser and Jesus is the barrister. Because of what Jesus has done he speaks on our behalf for his blood has already paid the price. So we can encounter God in these situations and ask for forgiveness.


I will write another Post that is more in depth of the courts of heaven but encountering God can be simple. Take the time in order to make GOD number ONE! Wanting to spend time with him comes from knowing him. Think about your relationship with God as a new partner. You want to spend time with them, get to know them, see how they work, what they think, how they act, what they say and what they do....well we can do the same with God. Here are some tips on what to do.

 

Read Gods word - take the time to read your bible, this can be listening on the app, reading on the app, reading it with a physical book (I prefer a physical book to be honest) and highlight what stands out to you.




Rest with God - Take time to sit in silence and just listen to what God is saying to you, this can be hard if you are not used to emptying your mind so take some deep breathes or look out your window and look at the colors and the shapes and patterns then sit or lie down.



Prayer - I tend to struggle with this one but its all about discipline and practice right? Jesus goes out early to spend time with God and pray, we need to do this too. Writing out prayers can be a good way to start and then say them out loud. Allow Holy Spirit to reveal to you what you need to pray for and you can always make a list where to start if you find it difficult.



Worship - There is nothing better than spending time with God through song, dance, living the way God intended us to be. Worship comes in different forms it is not just singing to God even though we know he loves that.



I'd love to hear how you enter Gods presence/heavens and if you have any tips please share them with me!
