Open Heaven

by Prophet Dr. David Owuor

TO DRAW AN UNDERSTANDING on this novel segment on the visitation of the GODHEAD, it is indeedindispensable that we examine one other aspect relating to such a monumental visitation upon the face of the earth.

Whenever the GODHEAD chooses to leave HIS dwelling in heaven and come down upon HIS people, the most inevitable occurrence that can not be precluded from any engagement underscoring it, is the fact that such an occurrence always invariably leads to an OPEN HEAVEN over the church.

We are vividly reminded here when the LORD Jesus took the three confidants who were close to HIS heart up the Mountain of Transfiguration. The visitation that accrued thereon became a monumental milestone whose bearing continue to ramify the hearts of the believers owing to the fact that it was at that summit that the Perfect Lamb of sacrifice was defined and duly instructed.

1 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. 3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus. 4 Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!” 6 When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified (Matthew 17:1-6).

Nevertheless, another visitation of equal measure of gravity is one in which the visitation of the GODHEAD appeared right at the point when Christ Jesus the Messiah was being baptised in the Jordan River.

On both occasions of the GODHEAD visiting the church, HE left an unmistakable path that instructed the footsteps of HIS people on which way leads to HIS eternal Kingdom in heaven. At Transfiguration when the Cloud of GLORY span that summit location, the Voice directed the entire creation to listen to Christ Jesus as the only way to HIS glorious Kingdom. 

5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!” (Matt 17:5)

In this visitation of the GODHEAD at the summit of Transfiguration, we see that the Voice of the GODHEAD HIMSELF is heard instructing creation unto Christ Jesus the Messiah.

However, we cannot still lose sight at the most important development that took place at this summit, when the glorious Cloud finally wrapped the Messiah and revealed HIM as the Christ to the naked human eyes of the three disciples that witnessed this shocking phenomenon. In that way, the visitation of the GODHEAD always points humanity to Christ the King as their gateway into the domain of the GODHEAD HIMSELF.

Additionally, when the glorious Cloud wrapped Moses and Elijah and closed them into heaven, the GODHEAD was essentially making it clear to the human race that a day cometh when those who abide in Christ Jesus would have to be lifted up by the Cloud of the Glory of the GODHEAD HIMSELF into rapture. To this end, the GODHEAD expects that the eyes of men are strained.
