The Intercession of Heaven, Pt. 4

Hebrews 12:22-24 says, “22But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.”
Finally, we transition from imperfection to perfection, from glory to glory to glory in God! This corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. Through the intercessor of the new covenant, Jesus Christ, our spirits are made perfect in Him. When God created this world and man, He created everything perfectly, but when we chose to sin and rebel against God, it brought curse upon this world. Earth was created after the order of heaven, and man was created to be God’s ambassadors upon this earth, ruling and reigning in His authority. We lost that authority in the Garden of Eden from the first Adam, but the second Adam came to restore to us that authority in God. You may believe or feel like you are imperfect today, but know that through His righteousness you are made perfect. You just need to grasp the revelation of God’s love and power and live it out every single day!
This body will go into the ground, but what we are waiting for is the manifestation of the sons and daughters of God. The earth groans, interceding in earnest expectation for this day (Romans 8:19, 22). We must intercede for this day as well. 2 Corinthians 5:1-9 says, “1For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. 4For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. 5Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. 6Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 8We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 9Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.” We intercede for the day that we can forever bask in the glory of God, but we do not have to wait to die in the flesh to go to heaven. We can die to the flesh and have heaven on earth! We can be absent from the flesh and present in the spirit, but it begins at that initial transition: from worship to intercession! Our worship and intercession must align with the intercession of worship in heaven, and then we have heaven on earth. Everything we do in church and our daily lives is mere preparation for our future home in heaven. Heaven is a beautiful place, and trust me, you do not want to allow anything to hinder your faith, causing you to walk by sight and quit in doubt and unbelief. Let me describe it just a little more.
