If you know Jesus, you are seated in the heavenlies right now. Ephesians 2:6 tells us that God raised us from the dead, along with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms, because we are united with Christ Jesus. In heaven, the sense of time and space isn’t the same as it is on earth. So you actually are in the spirit, seated in the heavenlies even while you’re watching this video. There’s no separation. You are in the spirit, in your spirit being, seated in the heavenlies with Jesus as a co-heir. And as an heir of God, you’re there in the spirit.
And that’s why in Ephesians 6, Paul tells us to put on the armor of God. The armor of God is mainly to help us walk as who we are in the heavenlies. So he says to put on the helmet of salvation, because our thoughts need to be aligned with who God says we are, who God has called us, and who we are in that pure, holy, blameless, righteous glory place where we are seated. So we put on the helmet of salvation to help us align with the thoughts of heaven.
And we put on the breastplate of righteousness because our hearts, our emotions, our feelings, our belief systems need to come into alignment with the fact that we are the righteousness of God in Jesus, in the heavenlies. So we put on that breastplate of righteousness, we put on the belt of truth, because as we declare the truth over ourselves, we rise up into that us instead of walking in the old patterns, the old habits, the old mindsets, the old belief systems. So we put on that belt of truth and we put on the shoes of peace that comes from the good news of God calling us and placing us in the heavenlies.
And we take up that shield of faith and we hold it out there and we declare what is true. And we take up that sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, what God has spoken over you. That you are the daughter of God, you are a king, you or a queen, you are a priest of God. These are who you are in the heavenlies. So we put on the armor in order to rise up into and walk on the earth as we are in heaven.
So let me pray for you because you are seated there, you just need to know it. God, thank you for this one who is watching this video. And I thank you that if they know you, they are in the heavenlies with you, Jesus, and they are seated right beside you in the spirit. And I thank you, Father, that they are next to you because Jesus is seated at your right hand. And so they are seated at your right hand. And I thank you that they are before you in the heavenlies. God, I pray that you would remove the hindrances that cause them to doubt that, and that you would help them to rise up into whom you have created them to be in the spirit. I ask your blessing over their lives and your help, all of heaven’s help to enable them to boldly be who they are in you. So I bless you in the name of Jesus to be holy blameless, pure, seated in the heavenlies.
