”Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; Let the sea roar, and all its fullness; Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it. Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the Lord. For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, And the peoples with His truth.”
There must be a accurately resonating response on Earth when something takes place in Heaven. We do know for sure God, the Creator of both Heaven and Earth... as well as the Lord and Lover of Mankind. Therefore David wrote: 'When heaven rejoices, the earth is glad'. That’s the normal and right correspondance. The heavenly space and the earthly space are in tune. Could it be that this is what Jesus mentioned about the future rise of the Kingdom Church:
"And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." Matt. 16,19
Obviously there will be people there on Earth and with deep connection with Heaven. Peter would be one of them as he will become a forerunner of the new Kingdom-race... not the first of many popes.
Then when we hear about ‘an open heaven’ we must think in terms of corresponding earthly response. What response? Whose response? Where response?
What kind of response is expected? Joy and thankfulness? Definitely. But that’s not all. The mind of the researcher must be activated. Meditating is a necessary discipline... check on Mary. Accurate alignment is expected... check on Joseph. Intimidation must be resisted and overcome... check on Elijah. Then ‘digging deeper’.
Whose response should it be? Well wholes that people who have developed a prophetic hearing ability... check on Peter.
Where will this response grow, take shape and reach formidable strength and influence? In the Church of the Living God, His dwelling place in. the Spirit, a building in which every single living stone contribute with one heart and in one spirit. No surprise since He said: "flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it." Matt. 16,17-18
Go ahead and dig!
