Heavenly perspective

 

Can God be known . . .

by viewing Him from human experience?

Can we touch spiritual reality . . .

without believing God’s Word?

Can we have faith . . .

while walking in unbelief?

Can we surrender our lives . . .

without letting go of control?

Can we understand redemption . . .

without recognizing the destruction of the fall?

Can we see clearly. . .

without starting and ending with an eternal perspective?

Can we see God’s eternal plan . . .

without backing out of time?

Can God’s highest created angel . . .

and the scope of his fallen power be understood by our mind?

 

Perspective is defined as:  1. The technique of representing three-dimensional objects and depth relationships on a two-dimensional surface.  2.  The relationship of aspects of a subject to each other and to a whole.

 

Representing three-dimensional objects with depth relationship, the depth relationship of the natural with the spiritual, and their relationship to a whole is challenging.

 

You are so heavenly minded you are no earthly good!  I am sure we have all heard that expression.   I believe the real problem is that we are so earthly minded we are no heavenly good!

 

How then can we be heavenly minded?
    • aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above.
    • set your minds and keep them set on what is above.[i]
    • Recognize the work of  the Holy Spirit who teaches by comparing spiritual things with spiritual. [ii]

 

Stop spending so much time thinking of things on this earth.

 

Determine to keep your mind set on things above.  Consider, examine, and meditate on the things of life from a heavenly perspective. 

 

Pursue spiritual teaching and understanding.  Read, associate with, and cultivate spiritual activity that gives the Holy Spirit the material necessary to give you a heavenly perspective.
