I continue to have a great deal of contact with the host of heaven. Holy Spirit revealed new layers as to why I absolutely adore the term “host of heaven”. The terms “saints and angels” and the “cloud of witnesses” just doesn’t cut it. They just don’t allow for some important nuances and vast variety of beautiful souls that “host of heaven” includes.
All of us are surrounded by the host of heaven and ALL of us can become the host of heaven! How? By hosting heaven!
“Heaven is not so much of a place as it is a person.”Daniel Lovett
We become the host of heaven when we host the Presence of God. When we open the door to Jesus and he (and the Trinity) comes in to make his home within each one.
“Loving me empowers you to obey my word. And my Father will love you so deeply that we will come to you and make you our dwelling place.”Jesus – John 14:23 TPT
Jesus never imposes himself on anyone and we ALL continue to have free will. Anyone at any time can refuse fellowship with God. This is why Jesus continues to put forth the invitation as he continues to find himself on the outside of fellowship with the believer:
“Behold, I’m standing at the door, knocking. If your heart is open to hear my voice and you open the door within, I will come in to you and feast with you, and you will feast with me.”Jesus, Revelation 3:20 TPT
We will “share a meal together as friends” as one translation puts it. I love this beautiful picture of friendship.
I encourage you to tune into Jesus right now, open the door, and be a host of heaven!
