Opening Heaven (Shamayim)
A person who meets the living, resurrected Messiah is filled with as much joy and amazement as those original disciples were. To encounter Elohim (God) like this is incomparible. But then there is nothing "ordinary" about Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) - when you have met Him, you will never be the same again.
"When He had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, He lifted up His hands and blessed them. While He was blessing them, He left them and was taken up into heaven. Then they worshiped Him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. And they stayed continually at the temple, praising Elohim (God)" (Luke 24:50-53, NIV).
It would be no exaggeration to say - because it is the absolute truth - that Yah'shua (Jesus) has opened the door to Heaven for us. Once you have tasted His dimension of reality every other you have known will pale into significance and you will reorientate your whole life to this higher and infinitely more fulfilling pursuit.
Yah'shua (Jesus), moreover, is returning the way He left those early disciples two millennia ago. Many believe that the time is not that far off before He returns visibly and physically to establish His own Rule or Kingdom. I personally believe that the up and coming young generation is the last one. The signs of the end-time, which Yah'shua (Jesus) Himself predicted, tally with what is happening around and amongst us.
Our desire is that heaven should open for you today and remain open for you every day!
