Revelation 4:1,2 -- "After these things, 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 theses things. "Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was standing in heaven, and One sitting on the throne."
A sign in front of a church said "We Are Just A Waiting Room For Heaven."
That is not what we are called to be.
We are called to be a Gateway to heaven through which people can enter into and begin to experience heaven now!
Every time we ascend we will descend with a blessing for the earth. The blessing we come back with is a piece of heaven -- evidence of it's existence.
The way we do this is the "Way", Jesus. As we ascend by the progressive revelation of who He is, we will see more glory, and we will carry that glory with us.
QUESTIONS TO ASK MYSELF:
What do I do to ascend into heaven?
What piece of heaven am I descending with as I bring back a blessing to earth?
