Matthew 6:10 10‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.
For heaven to come to earth means the gate of heaven has to open to allow heaven to enter the physical realm. This requires real breakthrough. God is looking for people who believe this and who will release heaven on earth by breaking through.
