Heavens First Heart Break

Adam and Eve went against what God told them to do. God have given Adam and Eve everything that he would ever need to live on the earth blessed.
However, the serpent brought temptation to him, saying there was so much more.
When Adam sinned he believed the word of the serpent over the word of God.
How many of us have ever been there? Believing the word of the world, over the word of God?
I think God at that moment could have just walked away, but because He loved us He created a better plan.
Genesis 3:15 NIV
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
“Crush Your Head” was promise that God would ever speak.
Heaven is made up of spiritual beings, angels, and servants of God. On this day there hopes for human kind was turned to the future. When the day that Jesus would come...

Heaven Waited Until the Right Time

This would be a time when God was ready for the savior to be brought to earth.
Jesus would be born to a virgin who was to be married to Joseph a carpenter.
Jesus would literally turn the world upside down because He was a King from another world, A King would reign forever!

Heaven was ready for this day!

Jesus would heal the sick, raise the dead, caste out demons, and teach with an authority that man has never seen.
Jesus never sinned, he was pure, he was holy!

A Perfect Lamb Offered Himself

Jesus offered himself as a sacrifice.
The roman soldiers who arrested Jesus only thought they arrested Jesus. Jesus gave himself up. He willingly laid himself on the alter.
When Peter attempted to keep the soldiers away Jesus told him, “Don’t you know that I could call a legions of Angels to come take me right now?”
Isaiah 53:7 NLT
He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet he never said a word. He was led like a lamb to the slaughter. And as a sheep is silent before the shearers, he did not open his mouth.
Heaven knew the sacrifice and the pain that Jesus wold endure on the cross, yet I believe there was excitement was going on, pretty soon man would be restored.

3 Days

For 3 Days Jesus was in the grave!
Ephesians 4:7–10 NLT
However, he has given each one of us a special gift through the generosity of Christ. That is why the Scriptures say, “When he ascended to the heights, he led a crowd of captives and gave gifts to his people.” Notice that it says “he ascended.” This clearly means that Christ also descended to our lowly world. And the same one who descended is the one who ascended higher than all the heavens, so that he might fill the entire universe with himself.
Ephesians 3:7-10
Ephesians 3:7–10 NLT
By God’s grace and mighty power, I have been given the privilege of serving him by spreading this Good News. Though I am the least deserving of all God’s people, he graciously gave me the privilege of telling the Gentiles about the endless treasures available to them in Christ. I was chosen to explain to everyone this mysterious plan that God, the Creator of all things, had kept secret from the beginning. God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
Jesus went and set free all those who in the Old Testament died, now they could be free to go to heaven.
Revelation 1:18 NLT
I am the living one. I died, but look—I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave.
When Jesus descended into Hell He took the Keys of Death from the Enemy.
Revelation 12:10–12 NLT
Then I heard a loud voice shouting across the heavens, “It has come at last— salvation and power and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters has been thrown down to earth— the one who accuses them before our God day and night. And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die. Therefore, rejoice, O heavens! And you who live in the heavens, rejoice! But terror will come on the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you in great anger, knowing that he has little time.”
Revelation 12:10-
Heaven rejoiced when Jesus was raised from the dead because the enemy had been defeated and man was set free.

We Are Free and The Enemy is Defeated

Choose Your Way

Joshua 24:15 NLT
But if you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”
