Activities Of Heaven:
Activities of heaven are being controlled by man. This statement may sound strange in the ears of people but it’s factual. This statement also means that heaven doesn’t control the activities man. The activities of man on earth determine what the activities of heaven would likely be. Therefore, the activities of man on earth dictate the paces of the activities of heaven. The will of God for heaven can only take place if man on earth approves it. This is may sound too heavy for many but we will unlock this statement later. Interestingly, many people or believers do not know that the heaven and the earth were created for man.
God didn’t created heaven for Himself because He doesn’t need it. And that is why the activities of heaven are being controlled by man. The heaven and earth are structured in a way that it is man that has to occupy them. The implication of this statement is that heaven and earth are under the control of man. And the activities of heaven and earth are controlled by man. Note that the statement in Genesis chapter one verse one states thus;
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Activities Of Heaven Is Conducted By Man:
In the above verse, it’s stated that God created the heaven and the earth, making the heaven a creation of God. And also it shows that the heaven has a beginning and the earth has its beginning. This implies that since they have a beginning they will also have an ending. However, after the creation of heaven and earth God made this declaration in the verse below.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
Therefore, God empowered man to dictates the activities of heaven. And as a result, if man has not done anything, heaven remains still. The activities of man here on earth will indicate the kind of activities that will take place in heaven.
“I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.”
“Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.”
Joy – Activities Of Heaven:
In the above quotations it states that there is joy in heaven over one sinner that got repented. And there is joy in the presence of angels over one sinner that got repented. Interestingly, sinners do not get repented unless they hear the gospel. Apostle Paul puts it better in his epistle to Romans.
“But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;”
The gospel the sinner hears and repents is the word of faith and Apostle Paul said is what they preached. Therefore, men preach the gospel and sinners are saved. The result of this gesture from men is that activities of heaven become joyous. Heaven becomes joyous and angels in it become joyous as well. Christ is not going to come down from heaven to preach the gospel men He left on earth should do that. And when they do so, activities of heaven become joyous.
Imagine souls being saved in seconds the outcome will be joy every second in heaven. It is the will of God that all men should be saved. But this will of God cannot come to pass unless man participate and make it a reality. If man agrees, the will of God that all should be save will come to pass.
Men Preach And Sinners Repent:
“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour. Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
1 Timothy 2:4
Apostle Paul asked an important question and that is as stated below;
“How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? Also how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”

So men preach the gospel not angels. The activities of men on earth affect what happens in heaven. This statement is true because Jesus in His teaching in the gospel identified with its authenticity. Let’s see what Jesus said in the gospel according Matthew below.
“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Binding And Loosing:
Contextually, the statement above is not talking about binding and loosing demons but about bringing forgiveness of sins to men. This implies that forgiveness of sin is established on earth by men before heaven confirms it. And this they do through the gospel. Anyone who believes in Christ through the gospel men preach on earth receives forgiveness of sin. In this case, if men do not bind and loose here on earth, heaven will not bind and loose. Hence, believers bind and loose through the preaching of the gospel and this brings freedom to fellow men.
Again, interestingly, the general oversea of the activities of heaven is a man. A Man sits on the throne that is in heaven and conducts the activities of heaven. He confirms the activities of men on earth as they preach the gospel. Apostle Paul puts it better this as he wrote to Timothy.
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
1 Timothy 2:5
This is happening because heaven and earth were created for man. Jesus is a man that is why He is ruling in heaven. The activities of heaven are controlled by man and the activities of earth are controlled by man.
