To key into this month’s theme, we must first establish in our hearts and minds that WE ARE ROYALTY!
I Pet. 2: 9 – “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
Rev. 1: 5, 6 – “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. To him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and has made us kings and priests to God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”
As Christians we must have an elevated mentality of who we are – we are not ordinary or common people; we are royalty; princes and princesses – sons and daughters of the Most High, citizens of heaven. This mentality will help us walk with our shoulders square and heads raised high; it helps us see ourselves the way God sees us!
This elevated mentality prevents us from doing things we should not do as royalty – music we should not listen to, things we should not watch, books we cannot read; generally, things that can damage and our image. Image is very important to a child of God, to the one who does not consider himself “common” – our image and identity should be that of one from above that is above all! The royal one in Christ is an overcomer, a conqueror, one who is above defeat! Irrespective of the culture or nation he is born into, the royal one is a citizen of heaven – he belongs to God first, before he belongs anywhere else; therefore he must act, speak and reason like one who is from above, not limiting himself to the limitations, schemes and perspectives of this world – because he belongs to a world more superior to this one we live in!
Rev. 21: 4 – “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Coming into the realization that we are citizen of heavens confirms this scripture verse that old things are passed away and every past pain is being taken away! As citizens of heaven, we shall now start to live a life of HEAVEN ON EARTH!
In this month of August that has been declared our month of HEAVEN ON EARTH, all your pain will be taken away! There will be miraculous healing in your body, the health of all your ill loved ones will be miraculously touched! The God of the heaven you belong to will take your sorrow away! By the extension of the kingdom you come from, violence, death and bloodshed will not be heard in your territory! In the name of Jesus!
Hold on to and confess these scripture verses for the month:
Psa. 118: 15 – “THE VOICE OF REJOICING AND SALVATION IS IN THE TABERNACLES OF THE RIGHTEOUS: the right hand of the LORD does valiantly.”
Rev. 22: 2 – “In the middle of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bore twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the HEALING OF THE NATIONS.”
Isa. 60: 18 – “VIOLENCE SHALL NO MORE BE HEARD IN YOUR LAND, wasting nor destruction within your borders; but you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.”
In addition, this month if we must experience heaven on earth, we must:
- Be prayerful! Prayer is the key that opens doors, and as royal citizens of the kingdom, all we need do is insert the key to doors we already have access to! Because whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven
- Have a great understanding of the word of God! Knowledge is not enough, understanding is required – it determines the application of what is known. Knowing the word of God is good, but the spirit of understanding help us apply the word of God to each and every of our situation – when we are in need, when we feel sick, etc.
- Have a good and right standing with God! The Father will meet the needs of His children that are standing right with Him!
Helpers will come for you! Your sorrow is turning to sweetness! Every emptiness in your life and hands are beginning to experience fullness from now; no more scratching the surface, abundance is your portion henceforth in Jesus’ name! AMEN!
