Sometimes it's good to take a look from a Different Perspective
The Fellowship of the Trinity
I have been captivated by the dream of establishing communities that are authentic expressions of Heaven on Earth. Jesus simple words in Matthew 6:10, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.”, has become the mission of my life time. I have devoted my life to this great cause of Christ to bring Heaven to Earth. However, discovering the blueprint for what an authentic expression of Heaven on Earth looks like took me years.
Even though it took me years to comprehend the blueprint for what it looks like to bring Heaven to Earth, it’s so simple and so perfect. I guess I only missed it for so long because I was so distracted by religion, church dramas and my own orphan mindsets that I couldn’t see one of the most basic and most powerful realities in the cosmos - the fellowship of the Trinity. The essence of who God is.
I wanted to understand exactly what Heaven looked like so that I knew what to be dreaming for and building towards. Like Paul in 1 Corinthians 3:10 I wanted to build “like a wise master builder”. In order to do that though, I needed a master plan. I needed a fail-safe blueprint that would enable me to reproduce exact representations of Heaven on Earth.
There are now an unprecedented number of people experiencing Heavenly encounters. You can get a multitude of resources on Heaven and hear from many people about their experiences of Heaven. We catch glimpses of what Heaven is like in the Bible. But what I was after was a blueprint for how to reproduce authentic expressions of Heaven on Earth. The revelation that I discovered is that the heartbeat of Heaven is the fellowship of the Trinity.
The fellowship of the Trinity is the very foundation of Heaven. That fellowship, the fellowship of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit is a fellowship of perfect divine love. Each member of the Trinity receives divine love perfectly from the others and gives a perfect expression of divine love in return. The fellowship of the Trinity exists in a perfect unbroken cycle of divine love that is nothing less than pure bliss and ecstatic delight in one another.
This is the divine blueprint for what it looks like to bring Heaven to Earth. This is the litmus test on the success and fruitfulness of our ministries. This is the mission of Christ and it is the mission of all who follow Him - to establish communities that are an authentic expression of Heaven on Earth. If we are to build like wise master builders then the blueprint that we are to build from is the fellowship of the Trinity. Our vision is to raise up communities of divine family that reflect the unbroken cycle of divine love modeled by the Trinity. Our great cause is to raise up communities that exist in a perfect unbroken cycle of divine love that is nothing less than pure bliss and ecstatic delight in one another.
It will take more than a supernatural ministry app to accomplish this. It will take more than any other type of app that we could hope to download to accomplish this. It will take a complete system overhaul. It will require an irrevocable exodus from orphan mindsets into the bliss of Sonship.
If our vision, our mandate, our divine calling is to establish authentic expressions of Heaven on Earth that reflect the fellowship of the Trinity and their, “perfect unbroken cycle of divine love that is nothing less than pure bliss and ecstatic delight in one another”, then it is only possible by walking in our Sonship. Sonship is the ability to receive divine love perfectly and to give perfect expression to divine love. To the degree that we are persuaded of our Sonship we are empowered to bring Heaven to Earth.
Now is the time to re-vision the future of the church in the earth. What I see is a viral outbreak of Sonship sweeping the face of the earth engulfing our orphan illusions in the revelation of the present reality of our Sonship and repositioning the church for its most glorious hour. I see a viral outbreak of Sonship redefining normal on the face of the earth and paving the way for authentic expressions of Heaven to fill the earth.
