Apostle Grace Lubega
Revelation 4:1 (KJV); After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”
History as we know it has lived through a progression of world views.
At some point in time, the predominant view of the world and life was mythological. Every change in nature was the result of some mystical being.
Then came the natural philosophers who were concerned with the natural world and its processes.
Over time, various world views emerged. These may be attitudinal, ideological, religious or philosophical.
The children of this world have built everything you see and know based on how they view the world.
The fundamental question to the child of God is, “from where are you seeing the world?”
When God says come up hither, He is inviting us to His view because He has an opinion on everything that man has built and designed.
He knows what will stand the test of time and what will be washed away by the tides of time; He knows what has been built on a sandy foundation and what will stand as a fortress through history.
If you are going to be a part of the change equation, you have to see the world God’s way. He is viewing it from the vantage point of eternity not history alone.
Come up hither is Him saying, see as I see and when you do, you will know what must be shaken to the ground and what will stand.

GOLDEN NUGGET: If you are going to be a part of the change equation, you have to see the world God’s way. He is viewing it from the vantage point of eternity, not history alone.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this word. You elevate my vision every day, to see as I should. I see life through the lens of eternity because You have peeled away the veils of time for my sake. It is in this understanding that I build everything I must build, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
