September 6, 2018: SOAP #3199:  Ezekiel 29-32; Revelation 11

Scripture:  Revelation (NIV) 11:15 The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.” 16 And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshipped God, 17 saying: “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign.

Observation:   As I was reading these verses, a thought crossed my mind.   There is a coordination between the activities on earth and the activities in heaven.   As I meditated on that thought, I realized that the whole Bible reveals this coordination.   What happens in heaven affects what happens on earth.   And what happens on earth affects what happens in heaven.

Throughout history, the activities of heaven and earth flow together toward a destiny with God's prophetic word.

Application:   Obviously the amassing of sin on earth brings God's judgment from heaven.   But it is also obvious that the obedience and the prayers of God's people are effective in changing and postponing coming judgment.   I need to live and pray like needed changes depend on me.

Prayer:      Holy Spirit, I need you to guide me in praying, and to pray through me.   Keep me aware of how the Heavenly Father sees my circumstances. Help me to see things as He sees them.   Amen
