Heaven is Not a Faraway Place

Dr. Don Crum–The woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5 reached through that thin veil that separates the earthly from the heavenly.  Heaven is not a faraway place, but rather a whole other dimension within close proximity to where we are in the earthly realm.  When Jesus healed or delivered, He often made an important announcement, saying, “Behold, the kingdom of heaven has come upon you or near you”.  So I think heaven is not a distant place but right on the other side of a thin veil that separates the earthly from the heavenly.  This lady reached through that thin veil with her desperate faith, right into the heavenly dimension of God and laid hold of a stick of spiritual dynamite, lit the fuse with her fiery passion and pulled it into her circumstance, where it exploded and annihilated her disease.  It completely went away that day because she pulled a stick of God’s dynamite into it!

Vigilant Change-Agents

Melissa — Yes, it has come to this: Be vigilant – keenly watchful to detect danger; ever awake and alert; sleeplessly watchful. Let me go ahead and say, this is not a “you deserve a spanking for allowing the world to go down the toilet” post.  Rather this post is aimed at being an alarm clock to wake up God’s sleeping giants to war! Is that you? Well, you’re the one reading this right now, and that is NO COINCIDENCE! So, here’s your wake up call, you beautiful heavenly-Change-Agent, you! What is a heavenly Change-Agent? It’s one who makes a difference wherever they are because they carry Heaven in them.  When I say Heaven, I mean one who carries the original intent of God wherever they go.  What is God’s original intent? Heaven on earth, a Kingdom without end (Luke 1:31-33).  The difference between our Change-Agents and the ones making the news right now is that we cause life, healing, peace, hope, restoration—not death and destruction!  

A Better Way to Live

CloudSunBreakThruLimitations bring groaning, despair and hopelessness. There is a better way to live. “Thy Kingdom come.” We must get the conduct and relationships of heaven into this earth. The fruit of the Spirit (Gal.5:22-25) manifests the conduct and relationships of heaven. We must get the power and benefits of heaven into this earth. The gifts of the Spirit (1Co.12:7-11) manifest the power of heaven over our limitations. 

Walking Above Limitations

How in the world did Peter ever walk on water?! It was indeed a miracle that Peter walked on water, especially when his buddies were clinging to the sides of the boat… from the inside.  We do not want to be connected to the mind of this age with its limitations.  In Matt.6:9 Jesus said we should pray to our Father in Heaven that His Kingdom would come to earth, and that was so we can lift our sense-oriented sight and sense-enslaved minds beyond the pitiful limitations of man’s small world — to see what we have never seen and to do what we have never done. We are praying you discover daily that you are lifting your eyes and setting your mind on the possibilities of Heaven coming into earth.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)

Who Is In Heaven

CloudLightWho is in heaven . . .“Our Father who is in heaven,” releases a son from any earthly father’s shortcomings.  There will be no hindrance in our conversation because of a father’s bad  mood or because of an earthly father’s personal guilt or distraction or misunderstanding or prejudiced opinion or unjust anger or mistaken views or lack of foresight.  His being in heaven declares His Divine Supremacy while removing all human limitations.  We are praying to a powerful Father, the Father who is situated above all, the Father who controls the universe, the Father who is almighty, the Father who is subject to none, the Father who prevails over all.  Praying as a son changes the posture, scope and expectations in prayer.

Rule Of God In Circumstances


We are not involved merely in an attempt to get some people to heaven, we are part of a great plan to bring the rule of God into present circumstances. People don’t just need a ticket to heaven in the by and by, they need the rule of God now in their bodies, families, finances and workplace. It is one thing to speak of the wonderful goings-on around the throne of God and what it is going to be like “some glorious day,” but it is to the glory of the Father to give present testimony of lives and circumstances invaded by that wonderful realm.

Step Up On Stage

The curtain rising on equipping insight may be a call to step up on the prepared stage for a hands-on, call to duty, on-the-job-stage with audiencetraining experience.  Most of us have heard of battles where God opened supernatural dimensions and sent angels to intervene for men and nations, but we are about to hear more about God also sending mature sons into supernatural  battle.  Since dimensions are no limitation to our God, He can  usher us outside time and natural boundaries for His purposes.   One of the biblical understandings of vision is “interaction within the spirit realm.”  Technically, being geographically translated into a situation can be considered a vision experience. What I’m describing in particular is what I will term a “night vision” that occurs while asleep yet goes beyond a typical dream.  These type of experiences leave you wondering where you have been in the night because the experience was real enough to wake up in a sweat or wake up with dirty fingernails or wake up sore from deeds accomplished.  (More in the next post.)

Applied Responsibility

Applied Responsibility

ticket     The teachings, experiences and writings of the apostles matured, developed and equipped believers to be agency through which the Kingdom would be evidenced in this earth (Acts 8:12; 14:22; 19:8; 28:23,31; 1Co 4:20). Simply put, there is more to being a Christian than merely accepting Jesus as Savior and waiting for an opportunity to get our ticket to heaven punched. A realization of the Kingdom of God, a seeking of the Kingdom of God (Mt 6:33) will take us beyond mere “heaven-consciousness” to a maturing/developing process which results in more applied responsibility as sons, and that results in more visibility of the power of God in this present world and that meets man’s needs while bringing glory to God.

(This is the second excerpt from the article “The Kingdom, The Process, The Benefit” by Marty Gabler.)

He Sits In The Heavens

This is the day the Lord has made so…

I will rejoice and be glad because Jehovah sits in the heavens and makes a laughingstock of the foolishness of the speeches of those who deny and defy the truth of God Almighty Jehovah. 

1-6 Why the big noise, nations? Why the mean plots, peoples? Earth-leaders push for position, Demagogues and delegates meet for summit talks, The God-deniers, the Messiah-defiers: “Let’s get free of God! Cast loose from Messiah!”
Heaven-throned God breaks out laughing. At first he’s amused at their presumption; Then he gets good and angry. Furiously, he shuts them up: “Don’t you know there’s a King in Zion? A coronation banquet Is spread for him on the holy summit.”

7-9  Let me tell you what God said next. He said, “You’re my son, And today is your birthday.
What do you want? Name it: Nations as a present? continents as a prize? You can command them all to dance for you, Or throw them out with tomorrow’s trash.”

10-12  So, rebel-kings, use your heads; Upstart-judges, learn your lesson: Worship God in adoring embrace, Celebrate in trembling awe. Kiss Messiah! Your very lives are in danger, you know; His anger is about to explode, But if you make a run for God—you won’t regret it!  (Ps 2:1-12 Msg)
