Matthew 16:19 - "Whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven."
How do we know what is bound and loosed in heaven? Who tells us what heaven's reality looks like?
The only way to know these things and to function as the HOUSE OF GOD and GATE OF HEAVEN is to have revelation of what is happening in heaven. Otherwise, we're working in the dark. God has always wanted to release truth to His people, backed by the Word, of things that are found in heaven but have no earthly parallel. Jesus said: "If I have told you of earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you of heavenly things?" (John 3:12)
He was expressing a desire to reveal things to us about what's happening in the spiritual realm that has no corresponding earthly picture.
Isaiah 9:7 - "Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end........."
As His government increases in the earth the Church will receive more and more revelation as we are engulfed in His glory.
I COME INTO AGREEMENT WITH THE FATHER TO RELEASE ME INTO THE THINGS HE HAS PREDESTINED ME FOR SINCE BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD.
I HUNGER FOR AND RECEIVE REVELATION AS PART OF MY EVERYDAY LIFE.
THAT REVELATION WILL HELP ME CARRY OUT MY EARTHLY ASSIGNMENTS WITH GREATER PRECISION AND WISDOM.
John 1:1,14 - "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."
IN MY LIFE GOD'S WORD BECOMES FLESH -- MY FLESH!
"I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guardpost. There I will wait to see what the Lord says and how He will answer my complaint. Then the Lord said to me, 'Write My answer plainly on tablets"....... - Habakkuk 2:1,2
We stand at our appointed posts as watchmen, ready for anything. We get away from external distractions, as Jesus did when he withdrew before dawn to isolated locations (see Mark 1:35).Quieting our internal noise, we watch to see what God may want to say: "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10).
When we hear something, we do something—write it down, pray from it, sound an alarm—whatever is appropriate. It is also easier to hear God's voice when you are performing automatic, mindless tasks such as driving the car, showering, exercising, washing the dishes or cleaning the house, especially if you are quietly praising God at the same time. He is more eager to speak to you than you are to hear from Him.
