HEAVEN AND EARTH
But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to the innumerable company of Angels.
In his 1933 novel Lost horizon, British author James Hilton introduced the world to "Shangri-La," a kind of heaven on earth in he Kunlun Mountains of Tibet, a secluded place where people hardly aged and lived very long lives in a society free of conflict and strife. It was another expressions of man's quest to create heaven on earth.
The Bible suggests that we can experience heaven while still living on earth! The writer to the Hebrews says that we "have come" (past tense) to Mount Zion, Jerusalem on earth, but also to "the heavenly Jerusalem." We "Have come" to the "church of of the firstborn who are registered in heaven..to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant." (Hebrews 12:22). Look around you, are you in heaven? Not physically, but spiritually you are united with heavenly reality if you are in Jesus Christ. Until our life on earth is over, we are sealed with Christ in heavenly placed (Ephesians 1:3)
When your life on earth is a challenge, avail yourself on the heavenly access that is yours in Christ.
