WE ARE CITIZENS OF HEAVEN

But there’s far more
to life for us. We’re citizens of high heaven! We’re waiting the arrival of the
Saviour, the Master, Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:20 MSG)

When you were born again, your citizenship changed
instantly! Your real citizenship is not the one on your international passport,
because having been born again, the Bible says “ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the
saints, and of the household of God
 (Ephesians 2:19). Your real citizenship is
in heaven. The Message Translation puts it this way: “…….You’re no longer wandering exiles. This kingdom of faith is now
your home country. You’re no longer strangers or outsiders. You belong here,
with as much right to the name Christians as anyone…..”
(Ephesians 2:19).

Hebrews 12:22-24 says,
“You have come to Mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly
Jerusalem….”
  Zion – the Heavenly
Jerusalem is your new country – your new land of nativity. How it pays to know
that you’re a citizen of the Heavenly Country!

Jesus said to the Jews “Ye
are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this
world!”
(John 8:23). He knew where He came from. Though He was physically
in the earth, He was conscious of His real citizenship –Zion – the Heavenly
Jerusalem. This should be your thinking as well. Let it dawn on you that you’re
a citizen of Zion!

Zion is the beautiful country of God’s beloved people, and
that’s where you belong. There’s no failure, recession, or poverty in that
country! There’s no sickness there; no wonder the Bible says those that dwell
therein, shall not say “I am sick” (Isaiah 33:24). Refuse to be subject to the
principles of this world’s system. In this heavenly country where you now
belong, what you have is divine health, prosperity, peace and success! Be conscious
of this today, and always! Amen!

CONFESSION

I know my divine
origin; I’m from Zion, the city of the Living God. Therefore, I cannot be
subject to the principle of this world’s system. I am a heavenly citizen,
seated together with Christ Jesus in the Heavenly realms! Hallelujah! Amen!
