Fire from the clouds

War rages in the heavenly realm 

Can there be any other place to start our prayer engagement?

Spiritual warfare fought in the heavenlies clears the way for the ground troops.  Breaking through the enemy’s defensive is imperative for those sent to reach the people. 

The military began the wide use of aerial power during the Second World War.  This, however, has always been God’s directive.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.i


In order to wage war in high places, believers must take their position in the heavenlies.  They must declare Christ’s victory over the aerial forces opposed to the plans and purposes of God. 

The natural is a picture of the spiritual.  Aerial military force is used to open the way for land offensives and ultimate victory.  Can it be any different in the ranks of the Almighty?

Humility before God is the recognition of His greatness and our helplessness.  This is a continual personal recognition.  Nevertheless, there is also a need to recognize what Christ has done on our behalf.  His has elevated us, seating us with Him in heavenly places.

 And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us] joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).ii

Numerous ground troops, missionaries, evangelists, pastors, teachers, and workers are depending on us. 

Rise up church to your heavenly calling, rise up and fire from the heavens.
