Hope From Heaven

(This is an excerpt from the section on hope in the first book of the Go To Heaven Now series, Present Access to Heaven.


You are a heavenly person, and hope is one of the heavenly realities that you live in. You should exude hope. People who were suicidal should find the will to live again when they get near you. On one of my trips to Russia, there was a lady who was depressed working in the hostel where I stayed. I went to Russia with the attitude that where I go, heaven goes. This lady said, “When I see you, it makes me want to live again.”

As you grow in the knowledge of the Lord, holding fast to the truth of the gospel, you will abound and overflow with hope in every circumstance by the power of the Holy Spirit. You will become a wild optimist if you understand the realities of the gospel! Nothing can beat you! In everything, you are more than a conqueror through Christ!

Romans 15:13 (NRSV) May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

As a heavenly person and an ambassador of Christ[1], you have authority to release heavenly hope. You can demand and declare that the hope which is in heaven be established now on earth.

Once I heard a sermon on this verse in Romans 15:13, and the Holy Spirit ingrained it in my spirit. By the time the sermon was over, I had it memorized. I went directly from there to another place and laid my hands on many of the people, saying “In Jesus name, right now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” It’s hard to put into words what happened, but people were greatly touched by the power of God and also physically healed. Some fell down shaking and laughing. I spoke, and it happened.

Declare this heavenly reality with authority over people, and it will happen. When you understand the hope which you have been given, you can learn to declare “Hope is the reality here now. Depression, hopelessness, discouragement, get out. Heaven is here now, because I am here, Christ is in me, and I am overflowing with hope.” People will be delivered from heaviness and depression, and they will experience heaven now. Many times, angels will immediately begin to minister when you declare this.  Hope is one heavenly reality that undoes the works of the devil.
