Dan 4:30 - The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.
This scripture is particularly interesting to me because it reveals something that stays in line with our theme - Open Heaven. It seems that blessings and declarations of pleasure aren't the only words spoken from heaven. Oh no, heaven can also be opened unto your judgment.
Rev 14:17-20 - And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
The heavens do rule in the kingdoms of men. They can be the place that ensures a blessing upon your life, but also be the sword that judges. While we are yet rejoicing in God's open heaven above us, ask yourself, what is it opened unto? Has your life been lived in such a way that you are assured that God is pleased or is wrath stored up for you to be poured upon you in the evil day?
Saints, judge yourselves, for the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; (Rom 1:18)
