How to bring heaven to the earth – Part 2
Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them. And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed. And there was great joy in that city.
Bringing heaven on earth will require removing the forces that currently occupy the earth. The bible declares that the devil is the god of this world. God created the heaven and earth and gave the dominion over the earth to Adam (Genesis 1:26). However, Adam submitted himself to the Lordship of the devil and the devil became the God d this world. Through the fall of Adam in the garden the devil took the dominion of the earth from man. When God created Adam he gave him dominion of over all the earth but Adam lost it by disobeying God and obeying the devil.
But the good news is, Jesus has overcome the devil for us and has given back to us all that Adam lost. However, the devil is still running the earth illegally and he still making people’s life hell, but we have authority in Christ to enforce heaven here on earth and establish the kingdom of God.
We do this through the use of the name of Jesus against every opposition. Jesus has given us the authority to use His name to dominion over the devil and his control over the earth. Where there is sickness were to bring healing, where there is sorrow we are to bring joy, where there is defeat we are to bring victory, where there is poverty we are to bring prosperity, where there is death we to being life and where there is hell, we are to bring heaven.
9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
