Some folks seem to think that once we are in heaven God’s Word expires and we live under a new set of rules. Let me correct this kind of rationale, Jesus is the Word that became flesh and He will endure forever.
Psalm 119:89 Forever, O Lord, Thy Word is settled in heaven.
What is the Word doing in heaven? He is sitting at the right hand of the Father confirming the Word, His righteous servants are speaking in the earth. Furthermore, the Word is upholding the functions in heaven. The Word created heaven and the Word maintains it. Heaven and earth will endure just as long as the Word does and the Word is an eternal being. Heaven is a very strange place compared to planet earth, it does not depend on the sun for light because it’s never dark there. There are no wars, no lack and no pain, man has never known such a place.
Hebrews 1:3 Jesus is upholding all things by the power of His Word.
We are one of those “all things” His Word is upholding, His Word will last just as long as we do! All men lead a double life, the first life is the one we live in the flesh, the second life is the one we live in the Spirit forever. The shortest span of our life is the one we live right now in our earth suit, it rarely goes over a hundred years. But the next life is never ending in the Spirit in heaven or hell, whichever one you choose. God gave the power of life and death over to man, we choose what we will have, not God.
Galatians 2:20 The life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God Who loves me and dies for me.
If we live in this life by the faith that Jesus lived in, how do we live in heaven? The same way Jesus does, by His faith in what the Father spoke. If we don’t learn His Word here in this life we will have to learn it in the next life. Every student of any subject knows that they will be tested on what they have learned. Who does the testing and what do they target?
1 Peter 1:7 The trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes might be found unto praise and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.
If it were not for the devil you may not have known whether you had faith or not. The Word you know produces the faith you need to walk in the Spirit with Jesus. The devil tries to persuade you with all kinds of trash, to abandon your connection with your Lord and Savior. Every time you stand against the devil and hold fast to your confession of faith, God says your trial is more meaningful than gold. If you do this the right way you will rejoice every time you disappoint the devil and please your Lord. The Word is much more durable than the devil because he cannot sustain an attack for long, he has other saints he must put on trial. We will never run out of ammunition because God’s Word endures forever.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
