The kingdom of the air, is I believe something, which is as real as this world, which we are apart of. We somehow think that this other dimensional reality, is spiritual in nature, mystical kind of, just floating around, in the place called the heavenlies.
What I believe I am starting to see, is that this world of the kingdom of the air, is a real tangible reality of being and existence.
When we speak about things being spiritual, we somehow think that its out there somewhere, floating around in the atmosphere, but having no shape or form of reality and structure, which one can touch and grasp, and see.
What I believe that I am seeing, is that the kingdom of the air is just that, its a kingdom of real tangible reality. Its not something floating in and around the air. It has a real reality of existence. It has a real order, and structures of realities.
What I think is being revealed, is that its like going to another county, which is as real as this country that we live in. It has some kind of geographical form and location of reality. It has real structures and points, just as real as this world has, which we live in, see, feel, touch, taste, and know.
This kingdom, which the bible calls the kingdom of the air, I believe is somehow in direct contact, and relation to our world, which we are members of. Its some kind of duel reality structure, called heaven and earth.
This other world, is I believe intertwined, intertangled, with our world of reality. What happens in heaven happens on earth.
This other world of the cosmos of creation, I believe has a throne in the midst of it. It has a divine order of reality, which pretty much mirrors, and reflects things similar to this world of the visible.
I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. Ephesians 1, 16-23
This other structural reality has points of reference in it. Its not a world that is not without shape and form, its a real world, as is our world. The places are real, the residences of the creatures, who exist there also are very real.
What I believe I am beginning to see, is that this world, which Paul says is somehow situated in the air, which I think Paul meant as all around us. The air is something that is everywhere, it is in the whole realm of this natural world, which we are members of.
So also is the other reality of the kingdom of the air, its everywhere, its in the midst of everything. In some strange dualistic reality, it is intertwined with this world, which we call our reality.
This kingdom is the domain and dominion, of the ruler, and the rulers of this world. These rulers I believe have real thrones of power, which are set over the kingdoms of humanity. They sit in the seats of power, exercising some kind of governmental authority over this world.
I believe that in the midst of the governing body, in the kingdom of the air, there is a main throne of power, who has authority and power over all the other thrones. Paul calls this being the prince of the powers of the air. The bible says that Satan has a throne in this kingdom of the air, which is higher in authority and power than all the other thrones, which are around him.
And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience. Ephesians 2, 2
And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, and said to him, “To you I will give all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours. Luke 4, 5-7
This kingdom of the air, the bible says that it still is in control over the children of disobedience.
The bible is very clear, this kingdom of the air continues as the governing reality over this world. John says that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
This evil prince the bible calls the devil, he continues to be the god of this present evil age.
The bible says that there is a set time, when this kingdom of the present rulers of this age, will be removed. These rulers who rule as the present gods over this age and cosmos, will at the end of the age be displaced, like a change of government. Removed from their power as the gods over this cosmos.
Paul is very clear, that at the cross the judgment was pronounced on the rulers of this age. It was these rulers, who through wicked hands, put to death the prince of peace.
Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away. But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Corinthians 2, 6-9
I believe that this other dimensional world of reality, it will be the future residence of the church, which is the body of Christ. This world of power and dominion, over the cosmos, will someday, at the advent of Christ, be the residence of the saints, who the bible says will rule and rein with Christ, over gods restored creation.
Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, in the new world, when the Son of Man will sit on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name’s sake, will receive a hundredfold and will inherit eternal life. Mathew 19, 28-30
Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. Revelation 20, 4
Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!” Revelation 12, 7-12
