When Heaven Touches Earth eBook
The central theme of this book is that average Christian believers can learn to exercise the eyes of their hearts and receive Spirit-led visions to worship in heaven, to receive the Lord's healing of their hearts, His authority, and His strategies to bring heaven down to earth (Matt. 6:10). Heavenly encounters initiated and led by Jesus with angels and those who have gone before us may sometimes be a part of these visionary experiences, as they were in Scripture. The Lord wants believers to learn to ascend in worship to heaven, and then descend to earth to war in intercession and do the miraculous works of Jesus (John 14:12) to advance God's kingdom and bring in the final harvest of souls in the Last Days.
A call to take a step forward in faith so that one may more fully experience the manifold grace Christ has made available to His church, whom He has seated with Him in heavenly places. Let us experience these marvelous provisions daily!
“Is It OK that I Had This Heavenly Encounter?”
My young daughter went home to be with Jesus three months ago. When receiving counseling prayer about this, God showed me a vision of her in heaven with Jesus. They were playing and laughing together and she told me she was happy and not sick anymore. This encounter has brought my husband and me tremendous peace and comfort, but someone told me that it wasn’t “safe”. I’m just wondering… is it okay?
Answer: Yes, it is biblical to be drawn by Jesus into heavenly encounters and to worship Him in the throne room of heaven. During inner healing prayer times, we have been blessed to see Jesus give people glimpses of their loved ones in heaven and allow them to interact with them. This has provided powerful healing to the wounds in their hearts and changed their lives. The transformation is instantaneous and you can see their countenance change right before your eyes.You will read many stories in this book of people being instantly transformed through a heavenly encounter.
Heavenly Encounters As One Worships And Prays
During Sunday morning worship services, if one looks with the eyes of their hearts (Eph. 1:18) they can see the heavenly host worshipping before the throne of God, as described in Revelation 4 and Hebrews 12:22-24. About 20% of worshippers currently use the eyes of their hearts during worship services and they see themselves as part of this heavenly celebration, participating in the worship already taking place in the throne room. We encourage every believer to learn to “look” with the eyes of their hearts (Dan. 8:1, 2 Heb. ra’ah be “to look at” NRSV; Rev. 4:1 “I looked” NKJV) in the spirit world and see the divine realities they are encountering as they worship in spirit (Jn. 4:23). This causes worship to become an amazing encounter with God and the host gathered before His throne.

Dr. Joseph Umidi (Professor at Regent University Divinity School 26 years, Overseer Team, New Life Ministries, International, Founder, Lifeforming Leadership Coaching): The principles of "seeing and hearing" have been an important part of my devotional life since the 1980's through the life-changing processes published by Mark Virkler. Dialogue always trumps monologue when it comes to Intimacy. Now we have an updated version through this dynamic research that can capture the spiritual imaginations of our sight and sound generation. There is so much more here that we have to offer a supernaturally starved era, that is both scripturally sound and spiritually safe, than the counterfeits too many have had to settle for.
John Arnott (Founding Pastor of Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship): We have also had numerous people relating visions of departed loved ones, similar to what you describe in When Heaven Touches Earth, two of which were my wife Carol and my grandmother. I totally believe this is possible, as God can do whatever He wants to do (Ps 115:3). Happy to endorse this. Go ahead, stir the pot and upset some people.Don Nori Sr. (Founder of Destiny Image Publishing): In many ways, this is certainly ground-breaking or, should I say, dimension breaking? You have carefully documented the work with the necessary Scripture that will lay the critical foundation for those truly seeking a more complete spiritual experience with their Lord. While carefully opening this ancient door of Resurrection reality, you are positioning the Body of Christ for a greater degree of wholeness purchased so long ago by our Lord.
Patricia King (Founder and CEO of XPMEDIA INC.): I just finished reading When Heaven Touches Earth and I must say I have been both spiritually impacted and emotionally touched as I read this glorious work. Not only have you brilliantly expounded theologically on the subjects of controversy and question but you have called forth 95 credible endorsers. I am left only to worship... that is all I can say. He is so worthy and so very good!
Dr. A.L. Gill (Founder of Gill Ministries International Outreach): I appreciate the many hours of study and research that went into the writing of this book. It is solidly based on the Word of God and addresses concerns that many have had regarding "heavenly encounters". It will be a blessing to many who have misunderstood these "encounters".
Barry P. Boucher, D.Min., (Rev)., Pastor Emeritus, The Life Centre Christian Fellowship, Ottawa, Canada: I am amazed, stunned and overwhelmed with the clarity, consistency and the heart burning truths on every page. I am honored to endorse When Heaven Touches Earth as one who has loved the written Word, as it has revealed the Living Word to me for over 35 years of ministry. Having travelled to 60+ nations, I hear testimonies all the time about heavenly encounters that stretch me to the max. I invite you to explore and test this thesis honestly and biblically so you too may be encouraged on your spiritual journey.
Matt Green (Align Ministries): This book -- It is truly what the body of Christ needs in this age and time. Andrew Murray said this about the Kingdom of God: "It is that spiritual state in which the life of God and of heaven is made accessible to men, and they enter into its enjoyment here on earth." From my perspective this book opens up the heavenly realms to God's children in a way that hasn't been seen or taught on the earth. Thank you for being obedient and may God bless you even more with His Presence and Spirit.
Alex & Donna Parachin (Co-Founders of Unstoppable Blessing Ministries): This is a must read book for this hour. It is timely and needed. Our God is an encountering God and this book provides the biblical framework and validity of God's nature in His environment that so desires to touch the earth and flow through His people. I could not put it down once I started to read it. It is compelling!
Herman and Barbara Dietsch: I fully endorse When Heaven Touches Earth as totally Biblical. It is extremely important revelation in the lives of believers today and the ministry of the Church in these end times. My wife, Barbara, and I served as overseas missionaries with the Liebenzell Mission for 17 years and are in our 33rd year pasturing at Evangelical Fellowship Chapel, Southampton, PA. This revelation is something we have just begun to explore in our own ministry here. Thank you many times over for the tremendous help it will be to us. The book is excellently written, both in content and in style.
