Day 35 - Scepter of the Kingdom

Break Open Heaven

35 represents established strength, hope. This week we have been learning that we are a Vav (peg) that connects Heaven to earth. We have been given a scepter (of authority) to extend into our world. A scepter of righteousness that brings hope and change into peoples lives along with reformation in the land.

•   Ezra 9:8 "But now for a brief moment grace has been shown from the LORD our God, to leave us an escaped remnant and to give us a peg (Vav) in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and grant us a little reviving in our bondage

•   Psalms 45:6 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

•   2 Cor 3:9-12 For if the ministry of condemnation has glory, much more does the ministry of righteousness abound in glory. For indeed what had glory, in this case has no glory because of the glory that surpasses it. For if that which fades away was with glory, much more that which remains is in glory. Therefore having such a hope, we use great boldness in our speech.

•   Col. 1:27 to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Praise IS Established Strength

We have experience these last few weeks the power of praise. God has ordained praise to scatter andshatterthe plans of the enemy....From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established (set up) strength (praise) Because of Your adversaries, To make the enemy and the revengeful cease. (Ps. 8:2)

Break Open Heaven – Christ for the Nations

Verse 1:

God of heaven, breathe into Your Bride; our spirits are yearning

For our hearts to burn before Your eyes; the righteous are calling

The clouds of heaven open, rain down fire, Your glory is falling

Holy King, such a beautiful mystery

Chorus:

Break open heaven, invade earth with fire

Your kingdom is coming, Your kingdom is coming

Let Your glory spread a flame through the breath of revival

Verse 2:

Winds of truth now blow as seasons change; Your promise is stirring

Righteous hearts to call upon Your name; a hope is arising

Let Your power dance on tongues of fire, displaying Your wonders

Holy King, such a beautiful mystery

Bridge:

Holy, holy, God Almighty

Heaven come down, we are responding

Abba says, My beloved, I have invested my Son into your life, into your world! Now, take the scepter of My kingdom and extend it into your world. Use your voice to Vav heaven to earth, take My Word and shift atmospheres. My anointing rest inside of you, release it…Christ in you is the hope of Glory!

Breaking Open Heaven,
