Heavenly Places


Ephesians 1:3 (KJV)

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

Blessed: this is not simply an empty word, Like we might use when we tell someone have a blessed life, or go and be blessed, or when someone sneezes and we say God bless you. No, this word really means something quite fantastic when we stop to consider it.

Bless, blessing, or blessed means to BESTOW, or ENDOW. It is an actual transfer of something real and material from the possession of one into the possession of another.

In this case from Eph. 1 it means "EVERYTHING"... everything in Heaven has been transferred into our care and management. Every Spiritual blessing in the Heavenly places "In Christ"

So, it is God Himself, the Father, who has transferred and bestowed Heaven itself into the hands of Believers.

It is a real and material blessing.

Luke 12:32

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

Think about that for a moment if you will and try to absorb it into your spirit. It is the Fathers pleasure to give you the Kingdom, right now, right here on earth. Not when you get there, but RIGHT NOW.

Too many are awaiting death to start enjoying the benefits of Heavenly life that are in fact available to us RIGHT NOW.

GOD our Heavenly Father has NO transaction or responsibility to unredeemed humanity. It is allowed and permitted to continue on its own course to its own conclusion. HOWEVER, to the believer, the redeemed, those who are "Born again" In Christ Jesus everything in HEAVEN is already available "IN CHRIST". You cannot get these benefits from any other source. All Spiritual Blessing are only available "IN CHRIST".

If you read the scriptures immediately following vs 3 you will discover that when you Chose Christ, you yourself have been Chosen, Predestined, and Adopted as Sons in the Kingdom. Giving you full Right as an inheritor to all that the Father has in his possession.

Secondly:

The blessings are from the Heavenly Places.

The highest authority in existence, none higher, none precedent. No one can supersede these blessings. No one on earth, not even Satan can supersede these blessings because they come from highest place of authority. No one has the right or the might to stop it. The highest authority has granted and bestowed blessings upon the believer. You the believer, HAS BEEN, (past tense) BLESSED.

Once something has been placed into your possession its up to YOU, not God, to use it. God has given it already, it is DUE. I mean by that, it is up to you to DISPLAY, USE, and EMPLOY what has been committed to you. God is not going to do that part. He gave it to YOU.

What you need to do is find out what the blessings consist of, figure out from the Word what you need to do with it, and then DISPLAY, USE, and EMPLOY what has been given to you already. You already own it "IN CHRIST" now just get busy with what you have been given.
