Over the last couple of weeks, we have been talking about the heavenly realms and the spiritual blessings that are ours in the heavenly realms Ephesians 1:3. With that in mind, there are two keys that are required to open the mighty treasures, the spiritual blessings of the heavenly realms:
We need to have a revelation in our own lives and spirits to realise that these promises are not future promises but rather they are present possessions! Our eyes need to be opened to this in order to take hold of it. The problem is that we find it hard to accept this for ourselves. The reason for this is that these things are spiritually perceived, not just mentally. Paul says in Romans 10:8-10 With the heart a person believes. It has to get from our mind to your heart. That’s why Paul said in Ephesians 1:18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened. If they could be perceived by the mind then our heart is not required, but we need to understand them spiritually, in our heart and believe they are for us NOW! We need that inner revelation of the truth.
If revelation is the first key to unlock our spiritual blessings in the heavenly realms, then ‘release’ of faith is the second.
These treasures will stop being potential possessions when we accept them by faith and become actual possessions. However, it is not like you exercise your faith and God drops down this truck load of blessing. We need to acquire them as and when we need them. At the time that you require a spiritual blessing, we need to release our faith and accept from God a spiritual blessing to meet a required need. And we need to be specific, not general. Faith possess its possessions; faith rejoices in the provision God has already made; faith shouts with great joy Ephesians 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
Anyone born of God sits in the heavenly realms now; all of God’s treasures are at our disposal today; every need that we have has already been met in Christ at this time! All we have to do is to believe what Christ has done for us and accept the abundance of Christ in the heavenly realms for us and live in that victory today!
Have a ‘God’ day
