"Prove me, saith the Lord, and see if I will not pour you out a blessing you shall not be able to receive it." Malachi 3:10
"Give, and gifts will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will they pour into the pouch formed by the bosom of your robe and used as a bag. For with the measure you deal out with the measure you use when you confer benefits on others, it will be measured back to you." Luke 6:38 (Amplified Bible)
Many look at earth as belonging to nations, states, and cities. But it really belongs to God. To Him it is a "Shadow Of Heaven." He created it, said it was very good, puts kings up, and brings kings and kingdoms down, and has full and total control of it. Daniel 2:21
Never in history have so many saints been allowed to cross over into the heavenlies, write notes on what they saw, and give to us a better understanding about both heaven and earth.
Most saints are looking forward to a total renovation of earth, and believe that after the tribulation period, and special trip to heaven to celebrate the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, saints will return to earth riding white horses, along with Christ, and bring back God's rules for this great planet earth.
John added a thought when telling about his vision of these scenes. He said, "These are the true sayings of God." Revelations 19:9
After the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, he saw heaven opened, a white horse, and one that sat upon him, called Faithful, true, and in righteousness, he was prepared to judge, and make war. Revelations 19:11
John said, "His name is called the Word of God." Revelations 19:13
"But, let us note carefully, what happens next? With him were armies which were in heaven following him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean." Revelations 19:1
This great army swept down from heaven, and was involved in battle with the Anti-Christ, and false prophet that supported the evil leader, and was cast in alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. Revelations 19:20
And it was at this point we are told Satan was bound for a thousand years, and the saints lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. Revelation 20:4 This is what is referred to as the "Millennium Reign."
A book written by Kat Kerr, with a Copyright 2007, shared certain and shocking details about her many visits to heaven. In one particular chapter she told about one visit, and shared in one chapter, in three pages, of how she viewed a special place in heaven called "The Portal." It was in this special place where all of heaven came, congregated, and viewed earth.
It was in this Portal that families in heaven could look off a balcony type of place, and observe their families on earth. It was also at this place where great delight, joy, and celebrations happened as loved ones in heaven viewed the lives of their families on earth enjoying life's celebrations.
The Portal was like the writer of the book of Hebrews mentioned, and told all believers to "lay aside every weight and sin, or basically to "cut off all drag in their life." For what reason was it so important to cut off all drag from their life? It was because of being compassed with such a heavenly cloud of witnesses. Hebrews 12:1
The Bible even names the eight super-powers registered in heaven that are compassing round about the saints of God upon earth. Hebrews 12:22-24
