Listen to this article

What is an open heaven?

Open heavens is a concept which has gained acceptance in the Pentecostal and charismatic groups. They tend to believe that when a person gains favor with God then He tend to open a ‘spiritual portal’ or a window in the heavens where God allows all manner of miracles, healings and other heavenly manifestations to reach this persons.

Every time you take God seriously and choose to walk with Him then He opens his heaven’s gate, window, door, portals, etc. and through this is open heavens, you start to see as God sees things and you start to operate at God’s level, where all things are possible.

Examples of People Who Walked Under Open Heavens In The Bible.

There are many cases of people who experienced open heavens in the bible and I will just to mention a few:

  1. Jesus: According to Mark 1:9-11, Jesus experienced an open heavens and as a result of it, his ministry on earth was full of heaven’s gifting.
  2. Jacob: Jacob in the book of Genesis 28:16-17. He brought the invisible to the visible and the supernatural to the natural. He had a vision of a ladder reaching to heaven with angels ascending and descending on it.
  3. John the Revelator: In the island of Patmos, He received very many visions of open heavens which form the book of Revelation. He was shown the throne room of God, angels, and the return of Jesus Christ.
  4. Stephen: According to Acts 7:55-56 Stephen saw the heaven open and was privileged to see Jesus standing at the right hand of God.
  5. Isaiah: According to the book of Isaiah 6, when King Uzziah died, the Bible says that Isaiah saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and exalted, with seraphim flying above Him, declaring His holiness.

What Are Some Things You Can Do To Open The Heavens?

Only God has the power to open the heavens, but it is up to us to maintain the heavens open. So that we can continue enjoying heaven on earth. We can sustain this open heaven experience by offering acceptable sacrifices. A sacrifice can be your time, finances, service, prayer, fasting, worship, praise, etc.

Remember If it’s not a sacrifice to you, it’s not a sacrifice to God. Things don’t just happen; you have to do your part and make those sacrifices. When you stop sacrificing, the open heavens close (1 Peter 2:5).

Offerings determine what God decides to pour out to you. Many people are waiting for God to pour out blessings, but they never gave any sacrifice or offerings to God. Your offering will determine if God will pour out 30% or 60% of blessings (Matthew 13:23).

You will definitely feel the presence of God, which takes you from walking in the natural to the supernatural. Here things just happen effortlessly, you start receiving revelation, finances, miracles, and breakthroughs. But that is not all there are many more manifestations that take place.
