GOOD THINGS AIN'T COMING; THEY ARE ALREADY HERE!!


GOOD THINGS AIN'T COMING, 
THEY ARE ALREADY HERE!!

“… For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightenedthose who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit,  who have tasted the goodness of the Word of God and the power of the age to come— and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding him up to public shame. …” (Hebrews 6:4-8 NLT).

Heaven can refer to the cosmos, stars, galaxies, or the universe. Heaven or heavens can also refer to the atmosphere that hovers above the earth where birds fly and clouds hang-out. But most importantly, heaven can refer to God’s dwelling place. “... O Thou (God, the Holy Spirit) dwellest in the heavens...” (Psalms 123:1 KJV). “...the Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom (the spiritual realm) ruleth over all...” (Psalms 103:19 KJV).  “... Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high. (elevated and SET APART by his HOLINESS)..” (Psalm 113:5 KJV).

Heaven in its simplicity is a PLACE or a REALM separate from natural places or the natural REALMS. “...Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth...” (Luke 11:2 KJV).

Heaven is NOT a physical reality, but a spiritual one, where the FULLNESS of God’s GLORY or the presence of His goodness exists perpetually and uninterrupted. “.. Glorify your Father who is in heaven...” (Matthew 5:16 KJV). IN HEAVEN, “…God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away” (Revelation 21:3-4 KJV).

This spiritual reality is a LOFTY PLACE, called HEAVEN, where God, MOST HIGH dwells, FREELY in his HOLINESS. . “... the Lord is HIGH about all the nations, and his GLORY (THE PRESENCE of HIS GOODNESS) ABOVE THE HEAVENS...” Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on HIGH. (LOFTY and SET APART by his HOLINESS)..” (Psalm 119:4-5 KJV).

ALL of God’s GLORY can NOT be confined to HEAVEN; the whole world is full of his GLORY (The PRESENCE of his GOODNESS). “... the HEAVEN and the heavens CANNOT contain [God]...” (1 Kings 8:27 KJV). “…. the whole earth is full of [God’s]…glory” (Isaiah 6:3).

HEAVEN gives witness to the transcendence of God’s existence and it EXALTS his true position as KING of kings! “...Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his GLORY is ABOVE the earth and the HEAVEN...” (Psalm 148:13 KJV). “... Be thou exalted, O God, ABOVE the HEAVENS: and thy GLORY above all the earth...” (Psalms 108:5 KJV).

Jesus, often referred to his Father “IN” heaven. “... ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven...” (John 5:45 KJV). “... as your Father which is in heaven...” (Matthew 5:48 KJV). “... your Father which is in heaven...” (Matthew 6:9 KJV). “...yet your heavenly Father feedeth them...” (Matthew 6:26 KJV). “...your Father which is in heaven...” (Matthew 7:11 KJV).

“...the will of My Father who is in heaven...” (Matthew 7:21 KJV). “... my Father which is in heaven...” (Matthew 10:32 KJV). “...my Father which is in heaven...” (Matthew 11:25 KJV). “... Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth...” (Matthew 12:50 KJV). “... my Father which is in heaven...” (Matthew 16:17 KJV).

“... my Father which is in heaven...” (Matthew 18:14 KJV). “... it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven...” (Matthew 23:9 KJV). “... that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses...” (Mark 11:26 KJV).

Every GOOD and PERFECT gift comes down from this spiritual REALM. “...Every good GIFT and every perfect GIFT is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights…” (James 1:17 KJV).  “…The HOLY SPIRIT …gives all these gifts and POWERS… (1 Corinthians 12:4-11 NLT).

“…The GIFT by grace……” (Romans 5:15 KJV). ”… ye [are]…saved through faith…it is the GIFT of God…” (Ephesians 2:8 KJV). “…The GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ ….” (Romans 6:23 KJV).  “….ye shall receive the GIFT of the Holy Ghost…” (Acts 2:38 KJV). “…the GIFT of righteousness…” (Romans 5:17 KJV). “…I am leaving you with a GIFT—peace of mind and heart...” (John 14:27 KJV). “… People should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God…” (Ecclesiastes 3:13 NLT). “…God has given us different GIFTS for doing certain things well…” (Romans 12:6 NLT). “…every man hath his proper GIFT of God...” (2 Corinthians 7:7 KJV). “…Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable GIFT(S)…” (2 Corinthians  9:16 KJV). “…his divine power hath given unto us ALL THINGS that pertain unto life and godliness…” (2 Peter 1:3 KJV).

“…BLESSED be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who HATH blessed us with all spiritual blessings … in heavenly places in Christ…” (Ephesians 1:3 KJV).

“... Every good GIFT and every perfect GIFT is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights…” (James 1:17 KJV). “…A man can receive nothing, except it BE GIVEN him from heaven…” (John 3:27 KJV). “… “…The LORD SHALL GIVE that which is good…” (Psalms 85:12 KJV). “…What do you have that God hasn’t given you? (1 Corinthians 4:7 NLT).

 “….Do not forget that [God]… led you through ... He gave you water …He fed you…. He did all this so you would never say to yourself, ‘I have achieved this wealth with my own strength and energy.’ Remember the Lord your God. He is the one who gives you power (authority) to be successful ...” (Deuteronomy 8:17-17 NLT). “…[Thus] ...What do you have that God hasn’t given you? And if everything you have is from God, why boast as though it were not a gift?...” (1 Corinthians 4:7 NLT). “…those [who have been given GIFTS from heaven,] ...have [also]... experienced the good things of heaven …” (Hebrews 6:4-8 NLT).

“... Every good GIFT and every perfect GIFT is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights…” (James 1:17 KJV). “…Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable GIFT(S)…” (2 Corinthians  9:16 KJV).

The GREATEST “GIFT” sent DOWN from HEAVEN was Jesus Christ. “... he (JESUS) that came down from heaven...” (John 3:13 KJV).  “…For I have come down from heaven  ... TO DO ...THE WILL of him who sent me” (John 6:38 NIV). “... I am the bread which came down from heaven...” (John 6:41 KJV). “... I came down from heaven?” (John 6:42 KJV). “... I am the living bread which came down from heaven...” (John 6:51 KJV). “...This is that bread which came down from heaven...” (John 6:58 KJV).

We know, Jesus, was born of a woman. “… Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God…” (John 1:13 KJV). “…The Holy Spirit shall come upon you (Mary, mother of Jesus), and the power of God shall overshadow you; so the baby born to you will be utterly holythe Son of God…” (Luke 1:35 NLT).

“…The only begotten (specially created) Son (Jesus, the WORD), of the Father, he hath declared (explained, revealed, or communicated for) him…” (John 1:18 KJV). Yet it says, Jesus “came down” from heaven. “... I came down from heaven?” (John 6:42 KJV).

“CAME DOWN” does not mean Jesus literally “came down” from heaven, but that he literally was sent from a place (spiritual realm) that is high and lifted up to a lower place (natural realm).

When God, the Holy Spirit comes to DWELL with you, he has descended from the high and lofty place of heaven to a lower place (earth).

When we leave the earthly realm we go to DWELL with God, we will ascend from the lower place in earth (the natural realm) to a high and lofty place (heaven).

Whenever God, the Holy Spirit, interacts with humanity, he stoops down or has to come down to where humanity is in order to intermingle with them.

Heaven is a high and lofty place where God DWELLS. Heaven refers to his prominence and status that is ABOVE and SET APART from “ALL” things, people, and existence “BY’ his HOLINESS.

“IF” HEAVEN is where God, the Holy Spirit, DWELLS or LIVES; “THEN” wherever God, the Holy Spirit LIVES or DWELLS “IS” heaven. We have this treasure  (the indwelling Holy Spirit) “in” earthen vessels…” (2 Corinthians 4:6-7 KJV).  “….ye shall receive the GIFT of the Holy [Spirit]…” (Acts 2:38 KJV).“…God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son “INTO” [y]OUR HEARTS…” (Galatians 4:6 NASB).

An EARTHEN VESSEL is DESIGNED to CONTAIN something, because it is a VESSEL.

A VESSEL, therefore, was made to CARRY something particular and becomes useful when it is FILLED with its particular PURPOSE.

The believer is SET APART to be an EARTHEN VESSEL that CARRIES a specific TREASURE, which FILLS them with PURPOSE.   We have this treasure (the indwelling Holy Spirit) “in” earthen vessels…” (2 Corinthians 4:6-7 KJV).

The specific TREASURE, which FILLS the EARTHEN VESSEL, is the INDWELLING HOLY SPIRIT. we have this treasure in earthen vessels...” (2 Corinthians 4:6-7 KJV).

“… We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure…” (2 Corinthians 4:7 NLT).

What? know ye not that your body  (YOUR EARTHEN VESSEL) is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” (1 Corinthians 6:19 KJV). “…Know ye not that ye are the temple (EARTHERN VESSEL) of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV). “…Know ye not your own selves …that Jesus Christ is in you (IN YOUR EARTHEN VESSEL)…” (2 Corinthians KJV). …God hath said, I will dwell in them (IN THEIR EARTHEN VESSEL), and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people” (2 Corinthians 6:16 KJV).

The “GOOD THINGS OF HEAVEN” (heavenly gifts) are bestowed upon you through God, the indwelling Holy Spirit (Hebrews 6:4 NLT). “…the Spirit of God dwell in you…” (Romans 8:9 KJV).  “….the Spirit of God dwelleth in you...” (1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV). “…your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” (1 Corinthians 6:19 KJV). “…God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people” (2 Corinthians 6:16 KJV).

The Holy Spirit is a HEAVENLY gift. “….ye shall receive the GIFT of the Holy [Spirit]…” (Acts 2:38 KJV). “... Every good GIFT and every perfect GIFT is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights…” (James 1:17 KJV). “…A man can receive nothing, except it BE GIVEN him from heaven…” (John 3:27 KJV). “… “…The LORD SHALL GIVE that which is good  (good things from heaven)…” (Psalms 85:12 KJV). “…What do you have that God hasn’t given you? (1 Corinthians 4:7 NLT). “…those [who have been given GIFTS from heaven,] ...have [also]... experienced the good things of heaven …” (Hebrews 6:4-8 NLT).

If God, the Holy Spirit, DWELLS in HEAVEN and comes to DWELL with you; then you are also DWELLING with him in HEAVEN. “... [God, the Holy Spirit] ... raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus...” (Ephesians 2:6 NLT).

Wherever God, the Holy Spirit, DWELLS “IS” heaven. “... O Thou (God, the Holy Spirit) dwellest in the heavens...” (Psalms 123:1 KJV).  Therefore, so ARE YOU, right now! “... [You are] ... seated ...with him in the heavenly realms...” (Ephesians 2:6 NLT) .“... If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be... “(John 12:26 KJV).

BECAUSE God, the indwelling Holy Spirit, DWELLS or LIVES “IN” you; you are, RIGHT NOW, with HIM in the heavenly REALM. IN HEAVEN. “...where I am, there shall also my servant be... “(John 12:26 KJV). IN HEAVEN, “…God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away…” (Revelation 21:3-4 KJV). “…Thy kingdom come (the spiritual REALM has come). Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth….” (Luke 11:2 KJV). “[God’s]…kingdom [has] come. [God’s] will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10 KJV).

“….The Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV). Wherever God, the Holy Spirit DWELLS “IS” heaven. “... O Thou (God, the Holy Spirit) dwellest in the heavens...” (Psalms 123:1 KJV).  we have this treasure in earthen vessels...” (2 Corinthians 4:6-7 KJV).  “…Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth….” (Luke 11:2 KJV). “[God’s]…kingdom [has] come. [God’s] will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10 KJV). “…God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away…” (Revelation 21:3-4 KJV).

God brings the “GOOD THINGS OF HEAVEN” to earth through EARTHEN VESSELS (Hebrew 6:4 NLT). “…The … HOLY SPIRIT …does the work IN and THROUGH all of us who are HIS… (1 Corinthians 12:4-11 NLT). “…The HOLY SPIRIT DISPLAYS God’s power THROUGH each of us … (1 Corinthians 12:4-11 NLT).

1.      God wipes away ALL tears: “... Thou hast delivered.... mine eyes from tears...” (Psalms 116:8 KJV). “... Fear thou not; for I AM with thee; be not dismayed; for I AM thy God: I will strengthen thee, I will HELP thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right had of my righteousness...” (Isaiah 41:10 KJV). “... The righteous CRY, and the Lord heareth them, and delivereth them out of ALL their troubles...” (Psalms 34:17 KJV). In heaven, “…God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes” (Revelation 21:3-4 KJV). “... [God’s SPIRITUAL]…kingdom [has] come. [God’s] will be done in earth (where god “now” lives “in” you), as it is in heaven (where god “also” lives “while”  dwelling “in” you)...” (Matthew 6:10 KJV).

2.     There shall be NO MORE death: …I tell you, whoever obeys my word will NEVER see death (John 8:51 KJV).  “…And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall NEVER die. Believest thou this?” (John 8:51 KJV). “…The GIFT of God is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ ….” (Romans 6:23 KJV). “…Jesus said…I am the resurrection and I am the LIFE…..” (John 11:25 KJV). . “…He that believeth on the Son hath EVERLASTING LIFE” (John 3:36KJV). “….He that believeth on me hath EVERLASTING LIFE…” (John 6:47 KJV). Physical death is the end of one life and spiritual death is the end of another life. " the righteous [go on] ... to eternal life…" (Matthew 25:46 NIV).  In heaven, “…there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying” (Revelation 21:3-4 KJV). “... [God’s SPIRITUAL]…kingdom [has] come. [God’s] will be done in earth (where god “now” lives “in” you), as it is in heaven (where god “also” lives “while”  dwelling “in” you)...” (Matthew 6:10 KJV).

3.     There shall be NO MORE pain: “…[God is]…Your rock and Your fortress, your deliverer, Your GOD, Your rock, in whom [you can] … take refuge; Your shield and the horn of Your salvation, YOUR stronghold.…" (Psalms 18:3 NASB). “... The Lord is NIGH (near) unto them that are of a BROKEN HEART...” (Psalms 34:18 KJV). “…BLESSED are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. ….” (Matthew 5:3-11 KJV). “... He healeth the BROKEN heart, and BINDETH upon their WOUNDS...” (Psalms 147:3 KJV). “... Now therefore, do not be afraid; I will provide for you and your little ones.” And he comforted them and spoke kindly to them.…” (GENESIS 50:15:21). In heaven, “…neither shall there be any more pain” (Revelation 21:3-4 KJV). “... [God’s SPIRITUAL]…kingdom [has] come. [God’s] will be done in earth (where god “now” lives “in” you), as it is in heaven (where god “also” lives “while”  dwelling “in” you)...” (Matthew 6:10 KJV).

4.     God, the Holy Spirit, BRINGS the heavenly REALM, with HIM, when he comes to DWELL “IN” you causing OLD REALITIES to pass away. …The invisible [Spirit]…from the creation of the world is …clearly seen, being understood by the things that are MADE …” (Romans 1:20 KJV). “… All things are … [MADE] … NEW…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).  “…Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a NEW creature ” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). “… All things are … [MADE] … NEW…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).  “…I will put a new spirit in you. …” (Ezekiel 36:26 NLT). By the GRACE of God I am what I am” (1 Corinthians 15:10 NIV). … [Therefore]… we all … are changed into the same image [of Christ] from glory to glory …” (2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV). In heaven, “…the former things are passed away……” (Revelation 21:3-4 KJV). “... [God’s SPIRITUAL] ... kingdom [has] come. [God’s] will be done in earth (where god “now” lives “in” you), as it is in heaven (where god “also” lives “while”  dwelling “in” you)...” (Matthew 6:10 KJV).
God, the Holy Spirit, brings the “GOOD THINGS OF HEAVEN” to earth through EARTHEN VESSELS (Hebrew 6:4 NLT). “... O Thou (God, the Holy Spirit) dwellest in the heavens...” (Psalms 123:1 KJV).  we have this treasure in earthen vessels...” (2 Corinthians 4:6-7 KJV).  “…Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth….” (Luke 11:2 KJV). WHY does God bring HEAVEN to YOU? “…God is love…” (1 John 4:4-8 KJV). …… [God’s]…love is kind” (1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 NIV). AND “…He is “SO” RICH in kindness and GRACE …” (Ephesians 1:7 NLT). “….The exceeding RICHES of his GRACE in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:7 KJV).

Therefore, “… [God, through Christ]… freely give us all things…” (Romans 8:32 KJV). “…God will supply all [your need]… according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus…” (Philippians 4:19 NASB).  

 In addition, “…As many as are the promises of God, in Him (Jesus, they are yes and amen) they are yesalsoAmen” (2 Corinthians 1:20 NASB). “And this is the confidence that we have in him (Jesus), that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us” (1 John 5:14 KJV). “…You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it...” (John 14:12-14 NLT).  “…Not one of the good promises which the Lord had made … failed; all came to pass…” (Joshua 21:45 NASB).  “He has granted to [you]… His precious and magnificent promises…” (2 Peter 1:4 NASB).For all things are your's [in Christ]…” (1 Corinthians 3 KJV).

Thus, “… the GRACE of God, and the gift by GRACE, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath ABOUNDED unto many…” (Romans 5:15 KJV).  “…God is able to make all GRACE abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things…” (2 Corinthians 8:9 KJV). “…My GRACE is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness...” (2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV). “..Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of GRACE, that we may obtain mercy, and find GRACE to help in time of need…” (Hebrews 4:16 KJV). “…where sin abounded, GRACE did much more abound…” (Romans 5:20 KJV). “…They which receive abundance of GRACE shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ…” (Romans 5:17 KJV).

 HOW? According to, “...The grace GIVEN unto me (from heaven where God, the Holy Spirit dwells and he RIGHT NOW dwells IN YOU)” (Romans 12:3 KJV). “…the grace that is GIVEN to us…” (Romans 12:6 KJV). “…Because of the grace that is GIVEN to me of God…” (Romans 15:15 KJV). “…According to the grace of God which is GIVEN unto me…” (1 Corinthians 3:10 KJV). “…I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is GIVEN you by Jesus Christ...” (1 Corinthians 1:4 KJV). “…Every one of us is GIVEN GRACE according to the measure of the gift of Christ” (Ephesians 4:7 KJV). This is where I SHOUT! “…FREELY YE HAVE RECEIVED...” (Matthew 10:8 KJV). “…By the grace of God I am what I am…” (1 Corinthians 15:10 KJV). Therefore, “…GRACE unto you, and [may it continue to]… be multiplied…” (1 Peter 1:2 KJV).

 “…God [the]…Father of our Lord Jesus Christ …HATH blessed us with ALL spiritual blessings ... in heavenly places…” (Ephesians 1:3 KJV). “…FREELY YE HAVE RECEIVED...” (Matthew 10:8 KJV).

When God comes to DWELL with you, he BRINGS “ALL” the GOOD THINGS of HEAVEN with him! “… to ... those who ... have EXPERIENCED the GOOD THINGS of HEAVEN (heavenly GIFTS) ... and... then turn away from God...” (Hebrews 6:4-8 NLT).

“… repent and DO the first works…” (Revelation 2:5 KJV).

“…EXCEPT YE REPENT, ye shall all likewise PERISH…” (Luke 13:3 KJV).
