The Atmosphere of Heaven

Recently, the Lord spoke to me about the colors and sounds of heaven. He said the reason there are colors in heaven that we can't even describe on earth is because the atmosphere of heaven is unobstructed and undistorted. The same with the sounds. The light and sound waves travel freely, accurately revealing the beautiful sights and sounds of heaven.

When I heard that, I asked if it was possible to have that here on earth. How can we have an unobstructed and undistorted atmosphere around us--in our lives, our families, our churches, our cities, our states, our nations? The Lord began to show me hearts that receive the Word of God, absorbing what He speaks and what He reveals to them--the sound and light waves He sends their way. As a person continues to receive these waves into their heart, the atmosphere around them remains clear. A pure heart keeps distortions away.

On the other hand, when a person rejects the Lord, knowingly or unknowingly they are creating a distorted atmosphere around them. Rejection, neglect, or rebellion of Him and His ways cause obstructions and distortions to form and remain around a person. It becomes a breeding ground for deception, and a vicious cycle of deception-distortion-obstruction begins. however, a repentant heart will clear all of this away. God is merciful! (Of course, the enemy can send obstructions as well, which we deal with in the Name of Jesus).

Lord, we want the pure atmosphere of heaven around us! We want the obstructions and distortions cleared away. We repent of any and all rejection of You, Your Word, Your revelation, Your ways. We ask for Your mercy and forgiveness. We will listen to You. We will follow Your ways. Thank You for Your forgiveness and grace.
