Revelation 4:1 - "After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, 'Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things."'
That voice is still calling to all who will hear. There is a door open in heaven and the spirit is beckoning us to come up there.
The ultimate revelation for every Christian is to walk the earth from a position seated with Christ Jesus in the heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6).
Therefore, our prayer must be the one that He taught His disciples, for His kingdom to come, and His will to be done, on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10).
We can never be too heavenly minded. The true good that we are able to do on earth will be dependent on the degree to which we have come to understand and implement God’s purpose for our life.
RELEASING THE KINGDOM
The naturally minded man, along with his traditions, has taken the Kingdom of God captive here on the earth, and therein lays the task before us.
"Nor will people say, Look! Here (it is)! or, See, (it is) there! For behold, the Kingdom of God is within you (in your hearts) and among you (surrounding you)." - Luke 17:21
We look up to acknowledge our transformation in Christ (through the new birth) that has taken place. The first and foremost revelation of Revelation 4 is that of the open door that is perpetually open and available to us.
We must WAGE WAR WITH OUR DULLNESS OF SPIRIT to press into the revelation of our oneness with Him in order to release the Kingdom of God in the earth.
O that we would have that perpetually hearing heart that can recognize the Lord's voice calling us to "Come up here" into the revelation of our calling in Christ. We are seated with Him in the heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6) which confirms our being made manifest the sons of God in the Earth.
