Overview

How Does Heaven Invade Earth in a Way that Earth Becomes Like Heaven?

In one of the darkest epochs in history, Jesus Christ had the audacity to teach His followers a prayer so shocking that it continues to defy human reason. Jesus turned to His tattered brigade of spiritual warriors and said, "Pray that My Father's kingdom would come and His will would be done on Earth, just as it is in Heaven." Are these words a wish upon a star, a too-good-to-be-true mantra created to make suffering people feel a little better? Did Jesus intend His prayer to be prayed by untold billions but only be answered for a few in some distant eternity? What does the Lord's Prayer, given by Jesus two millennia ago, have to do with our present-day world? Is it possible that the words Jesus taught us to pray can answer these and other pressing questions?

• Is our world eroding or evolving?
• Is global warming the beginning of the end?
• Will evil triumph over good?
• Are we hurtling toward obliteration?
• Or is there more reason to hope than ever before?

How Heaven Invades Earth unearths the mysteries of the Lord's Prayer to give you answers and prepares the Church for a revolution that will transform every realm of society.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Kris sounds a clear prophetic call to embrace change. Throughout the pages of this book he commissions us to make earth like heaven. You will receive an impartation of supernatural faith and courage as you journey through the pages of this book and become part of the Kingdom mandate to transform society.
- Ché Ahn, Senior Pastor, Harvest Rock Church, President and Founder, Harvest International Ministry

Kris charges ahead with the spirit of Caleb and Joshua to say that God has given us the greatest opportunity ever to bring in His kingdom with power and love, integrity and victory. How Heaven Invades Earth will motivate new Christians, students, and old saints alike to shake off that which hinders, and run for God. I learned so much; I am reading this book again.
- John Arnott, Toronto Airport Church

Our very good friend Kris Vallotton has written a positive, detailed vision of the church as an effective catalyst for world transformation through the demonstration of both power and love. He and his church have transformed our own family and ministry by genuine apostolic love and friendship, and we are so encouraged by this. Thought provoking, and controversial in places, he makes a strong case for the church to set out to improve the world rather than let the devil steal our future. This is our present mandate as Christians and leaders, even as we look forward to the last days when God will glorify Himself and bring back His Son in magnificent power and majesty.
- Rolland and Heidi Baker, Founding Directors, Iris Ministries

Kris Vallotton lives what he writes. He is the revolutionary who puts fire in my bones. He is gifted to understand human relationships and the dynamics, which trigger revival. I am glad he is on our side. In this book he explains revelatory truth, but more importantly, he imparts fire. Don’t just read this. Catch it!
- Harold R. Eberle, Founder of Worldcast Ministries

How Heaven Invades Earth is a perspective of the spiritual world we live that is like seeing from Google Earth. It will draw the reader into Kris’s core messages of the last couple years. He does a masterful job assembling a collage of snapshots that build a highway of revelation to what the Spirit is doing in this coming Apostolic Age. True to form, Kris will challenge you to think outside the lines as he introduces numerous new dynamics that are in play in this generation. Read this book with an expectation of transformation.
- Danny Silk, Family Life Pastor at Bethel Church, Author of Developing a Culture of Honor and Loving Our Kids on Purpose

No one can read a work out of Bethel Church, Redding, California, without the awareness of the culture and atmosphere in which it was produced. I was recently privileged with the opportunity of spending a week around Bethel, its leaders, its people, its students and servants where the culture of honor is well known. You would be interested to know that my report is that it is real and universally atmospheric. To know Kris Vallotton is to be acquainted with honor and to see and sense this atmosphere. Hard-hitting, direct and prophetic, but oh so gentle, the author of this book lives what he writes. If one is offended by what is written within these pages it is probably, in part, because of the lack of acquaintance with Kris himself. Another consideration for offense is dealing with entrenched traditions that are being hammered herein.  Honor is inseparable from favor, respect and acceptance. When one chooses honor, as has the whole Bethel team, these qualities are inevitable and real.  Yes, you will be challenged, shocked and, if open-minded, you will be beneficially stretched. Reading How Heaven Invades Earth will likely be similar to being in a pouring rain, a cold-water-inyour-face experience coupled with a blurred view of one’s surroundings. But when the rain is over and the view clears, you will be different!
- Jack Taylor, President, Dimensions Ministries, Melbourne, Florida

The Church, as most Americans think of it, may help some individuals but it cannot be a viable means to reform our society. Why? How Heaven Invades Earth is the most insightful book I have yet encountered to answer that question. The creative suggestions that Kris Vallotton makes for correcting our past weaknesses and reforming our churches are powerful, positive and productive. I want to be part of the exciting kind of church that I read about here, and I believe you will agree!
- C. Peter Wagner, Founder and Chancellor Emeritus, Wagner Leadership Institute
