The church of Jesus Christ has far more might than it realizes. We can penetrate heaven with our prayers and see the power of God released. 

Our access to God grants us enormous privileges. The church literally can tear the heavens open and summon the power of God. We can petition Him and cause heaven to react to what we pray.

God's Word says that supernatural acts are available from a supernatural God to a certain kind of people. To people who will love Him, God is willing to give unlimited favor and miracles.

Paul the apostle wrote, "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ" (Eph. 1:3). If the blessings of God are in the heavenly realms, how do we bring them down?

Isaiah prayed, "Oh, that You would rend the heavens! That You would come down!" (Is. 64:1). He was asking God to tear open the heavens and come down and manifest Himself in two very specific ways: (1) to make Himself known to the enemy in aggressive, destructive action; and (2) to come in mercy and love to His people (vv. 2, 8-9).

To rend means "to tear, to rip to pieces, to part." We can stimulate the heart of God to open the windows of heaven for blessing in our lives.

We Can Touch Heaven

In every book of the Bible, we see God's power manifested in the lives of His people.

King David was a warrior trained by God to protect his people and to mete out justice to the enemies of God. In Psalm 144:5, he called upon God to part the heavens and come down because there was cause for supernatural action.

In the New Testament, we read that when Christ came out of the water, the heavens opened up. The Holy Spirit descended upon Him like a dove, and Jesus became empowered (Matt. 3:16-17).

Jesus began His public ministry in submission to the baptism of John the Baptist. His humble obedience burst open the heavens, and He was anointed to preach the Good News—to heal the brokenhearted, set the captives free and drive out demons (Luke 4:18).

From that day on, He was no ordinary man. He was God manifesting Himself in man under an open heaven.

Through a lifestyle of prayer and humble obedience, you can rend the heavens. Then the Holy Spirit can impart His anointing for your service unto God.

Isaiah 64:4 states that no one has ever seen, no ear perceived what God will do for the one who waits on Him. In the Upper Room, the 120 "waited" for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2).

This kind of waiting is not passive. It is serving with expectancy and patience, ministering to God in worship and prayer and knowing that He will act on your behalf.
