What it Means to Be a Citizen of Heaven

Hello, Brothers, Sisters, and Heartdwellers family. May we receive the grace to live from heaven to earth.

I found myself weighed down by all the troubles and my trials. As I was in worship, my mind began to drift, and I found myself thinking of heaven. How I longed for heaven, just to be with Jesus. The battles and weariness of this earthly life were getting to me. I looked out the window and sighed and imagined myself in the clouds then going up to the heavenly place. I felt the Lord wanted to speak to me, so I began writing.

Good morning Jesus what’s on your heart?

“My love knows no bound for you, My daughter”

I thought, Papa? It feels like Daddy is speaking….

Papa God responded,

“I am here, My beloved one. I felt you needed a Papa today. Come sit on My lap, let’s play”


I saw myself about three years old with curly afro curls and a white frilled dress, sitting on Papa God’s lap in heaven. We were amidst the clouds.

Papa God continued,

Yes, Beloved, you have been far too bogged down with the troubles and cares of life. It’s time you have a heavenly perspective of who you are — and see from My vantage point of sovereignty and keep your peace.  We are so proud of you this morning, choosing not to react.

As an aside, the enemy throws so many suggestions and images in prayer to distract me, revealing to me things I don’t know that cause great anxiety. It happened this morning, and every day so far, I have reacted on the impulse and gone to say something or ask a question which [has led] to dissension and argument.

This time I held on to My Rosary fast and cried out to Blessed Mother to help me [to] cast down these imaginations from my mind. They were consuming me — or trying to.

I found out later [that] they were true, but I didn’t want to react, rather just take it to the Lord in prayer now.

So, back to Papa God,

Although the suggestions came very loud, your enemy indeed comes like a roaring lion, but he has no bite. Do not be discouraged, although he may present things that have some thread of truth, he always presents his outcome and solution with it, which is a lie.

“Continue to cling to the cross, and to the Rosary as well. It would do you go to pray that every morning. Know your Mother dotes over you and Her prayers are upholding you as well, My beloved little one

At this point, Papa God and I were walking as I held his hand. He placed me before a mirror, and he gave me a pink crown. I held my dress out and posed side to side as I adored the crown, receiving it bashfully.

Papa, you’re putting a crown on me?”

Because you are My little princess.

It’s beautiful, it’s a pink crown, what does that mean?

Papa God responded,

This is for the victory of this trial, Beloved. Do not concern yourself with what may happen or what you don’t understand. Just keep your eyes on Me and come away time-to-time in heaven where you belong and where you live from. Not from earth to heaven, but you, My beloved one, live from heaven to earth. That’s what it means to be a Citizen of Heaven and that is what I want to discuss with all the brides of Christ — all My sons and daughters.

“Let’s take a walk so that I can show you around.

Okay, Papa.

And yes, your thoughts are My own. You were gifted with a crown of purity…”

As an aside, guys, when He put the crown on my head, I did think, what is this crown for? And I heard, “Purity”.

“A pure soul you will continue to be — when your heart is challenged to feel or become otherwise, it will stay pure before Me.

Just then I saw Derrick in heaven too. He was just as old as [ I ], about four or three years of age in a blue suit. He was also before a mirror and was being given a large golden crown.

Papa God said,

He also was given the crown of purity in conjunction with a king’s crown. That is the crown of authority. Much authority will be given to him. Right now he too is being refined in this fire and will continue to be. With authority comes much, much, responsibility. Therefore he can hurt so many in the process. He is learning that now, in small, significant ways that you don’t see. But he is learning and will come to the full knowledge and weight of his calling and his citizenship in heaven. That will change everything about him. So you just sit and wait, Beloved. Be patient, I am working.

I then began to notice the busyness of heaven. So many coming and going, smiling, laughing but working at the same time for the Lord. They all smiled and waved and continue on with whatever task they were doing or place they were going.

There is such a certain level of peace, such joy, and busyness. Not like the world busy that brings anxiety and rushes, rather everything is working so harmoniously it seems. It feels like everyone is taking their time because they have all of eternity and at the same time, [are] very focused and intent on what needs to get done. I just had a knowing in my heart.

I looked at Papa, He grabbed me and put me on His shoulders, and laughed heartily. He turned, and as we began walking, he stopped. It was as if the ground opened up below us surrounded by clouds.  I was able to see earth, and all that was going on there. I then saw scene flashes of different souls, different countries, and conversations going on. Some were angry, some were worried, anxious, some fearful. I could hear their short simple prayers to Papa, their sighs, and the cares of their heart.

I asked Papa God, are they Christians?

Papa God said,

“Yes, but they have lost sight of their citizenship, Beloved. I told all, through My Son, that you would have trials and troubles in this life. But take heart I have overcome the world, (John 16:33). But so many have forgotten and no longer cast their cares onto to Me. The reality of the presence of Heaven is so far and foreign to some and I want to use you to change that, Beloved.

“I want all the brides of Christ to bring the atmosphere of Heaven wherever they go. What is the atmosphere here? It is first all of the fruits of the spirit summed into one, Love.

Galatians 5:22-23. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness. goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law

There is peace, there is joy — tensions don’t rise here because we are all on one accord and every reaction and response is always in love rather than offense or pain.

“Although pain may reveal itself here in the wounds and scars incurred when you had your earthly tent, but it doesn’t bring sorrow. Rather all those around you are aware when something pricks your heart and rather they come rushing to your side to comfort you, encourage you, and love you, which brings a level of healing and joy indescribable.

“The river of life is not just for the souls on earth to heal nations, but even for those here in heaven. Here In heaven, you are made perfect in love, but your soul grows in love and understanding and in healing. I made it so that we may all continue to grow together, understand together — one organism, one body, made perfect by the great sacrifice of love.

Do you understand?

Wow, that’s amazing Papa.

When you grow with those on earth in any way does it not bring you closer? That is the same in heaven. However, on earth too frequently are My children given over to carnal ways and responses of the flesh rather than how heaven responds. You have a very real enemy who provokes and accuses My children day and night and so many are bogged down with condemnation as well, but there is no shame in love. Where love is there is freedom and I want My children to know that — to come to Me so that they may be set free. My beloved little princess, think heavenly in all you do, you lost sight of that for a while and that is why I have visited you today in My mercy, to bring you back to that perspective — that your purpose is for Heaven and to bring many minds on earth to eternity.

“My children, come up higher, come up. I am calling each of you. You are already seated with Me in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). I have given you dominion and authority. You are not wielding out of fear, discouragement, and weariness. Wield your authority because, as My child, when you speak it is as though I am speaking. You are a child of the King, that is who you truly are, and I have given My decrees and mandates on this earth through My word, that many would live them now, here on earth — paving the road to heaven for many.

“The opposition against all of you is very fierce, that I know — I know My beloved little ones, but the grace, power, and help given are so much more. For greater is with you than those is against you (2 Kings 6:16). You must believe in that and walk and live by faith. That is how you live like a citizen of heaven, it’s by faith. It’s by faith that you will see things changed — your family restored, cities transformed, and communities revived to the likeness of heaven if you would believe and live by faith.

“Be sensitive to what it going on in the spirit. Your fight is not flesh and blood. So what emotions are oppressing your home, your families, your children, and your communities? What sins are rampant and apparent? Wield your authority, bind the spirits, and pull these strongholds down and, rather loose what it is you want to see.

“Remember My Word — whatever you bind on earth is bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth is loosed in heaven. The minute you speak, My children I hear you and I begin to work and move especially when you pray according to My will. All of heaven moves for one earthly citizen in a powerful way. But too many think of Me [as] slow because you don’t understand My ways or what I am doing.

“You have no idea that when you pray about something your words are loosed in the heavens. It comes up before My altar as the angels receive it as fragrant incense. I begin to work on the heart of those you’re praying for, the cities, nations, or circumstances. I start with the details, first changing circumstances, thought patterns, and then hearts. When your prayers are ripe, its poured out and angels are released to bring to pass, immediately, what you prayed.

“So I am asking more of My children to ‘walk by faith and not by sight’ [2 Corinthians 5:7]. To be a citizen means to be an inhabitant of a town or city — and you, My children — are inhabitants of heaven, I dwell within you. I move and have My being within you, especially when you have given yourself entirely to Me. I am coming with the power to raise up and out the lion in each of you.

“I am coming to show Myself strong in each of you with such glory that all that you do, all that you touch, and everywhere you go will be changed. Begin to believe it, speak over your families, over your situations, over your homes, grocery stores wherever you go — over your streets, as you’re walking, over your cities and I will do it. Know who you are and stand in the truth of who you are as a citizen of Heaven.

Philippians 3:20-21

But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. 21 He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.

That was the end of Jesus’ message.

From Jesus With Love

My Name Is Mary Elisha I started this blog 6 years ago on my journey walking with Jesus and never knew all that he had in store for me. It has been a journey of tears, trust and confidence in him. Knowing that He is my loving spouse and he wouldn't lead me astray however he has given many suprises along the way! lol Upon fully surrendering my life to Jesus, he has completely turn my world right side up. Filled me with his spirit and showed himself in supernatural ways. He has completely left me in awe leaving me with the thought.....(as most Holy Spirit filled followers of Christ also say) why didn't I surrender 15 years ago! lol. When I started this blog I was a 30 years old zealous for the Lord and desiring to make his love known because it tranformed my life. However, I didn't know the way and the road in which he would take me. It is the way of the cross, the way of holiness and the way of love. Living a life seperated from the world and compltely concecrated to him. I no longer belong to myself, but to him as he has led me to a life of hiddeness and deep intimacy I didn't know was so avalialble for all who would make their lives, their hearts his home. He has given me a new name, a renewed purpose and a heavenly family who is so very present and so real to me. Saints who cheer me on, give me council and pray for me everyday to ensure I do the Lords will and the greatest gift of all He has led me to his Mother! Who has always been My Mother just never knew it. I love Mother Mary, she is my heart, my friend and confidant and continues to prepare me to a worthy bride to her son, Jesus. It is she, who has handpicked me for this mission and to run the community "City of God: Sacred Heart Refuge" in Ghana, West Africa. This is her mission and her ministry as a gift to Jesus and I just get to be her handmaiden. Heartdwellers Ghana is an extention of Heartdwellers ministry by Mother Clare and Father Ezekiel from Still Small Voice Channel. Jesus has taught us about divine intimacy with him. As we dwell in his heart, He and the Father come to make their home within us. (John Where Jesus is all of heaven is as well because the kingom of God is within. So here may you come to get fresh manna from Jesus and any ther saints who may want to give us council, encouragment and exhortation that we may finish this race of faith and run to win the prize. To be a bride spotless, blameless adorened with purity, carying the fire of charity and zeal for our fathers glory. That we maybe ready for him when He comes back for us. Our Lord, Jesus Christ is amazing the intimate you become with him the more in awe he leaves you. I hope this blog draws you nearer to our Lord and you began to open the ears and the eyes of your heart to all that he has to say to you and show you. All of these messages are from Jesus with love...to you. May you be blessed by his words of life. God bless you!
