Matthew_6-20: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

Memorise.

Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.
Job 14:1

Read.

2 Timothy 4:6-8
6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Message.

In the Bible, the word ‘Heaven’ is often used in three ways: to described a physical part of the universe which is above the sky, the prevailing condition whenever God reigns in the affairs of men, and the invisible dwelling place of God, also known as paradise. Today’s devotional focuses on the need to prepare for heaven, the dwelling place of God, and what such a preparation entails. First, the Bible presents heaven as the dwelling place of God, where His manifest presence is a permanent feature, as He is the only source of light there. Because of the constant presence of God in heaven, it is a place of extreme joy and peace. Heaven is also a place of recognition, reward, celebration, and total rest from trouble. Holiness is the only acceptable currency in heaven.
Several passages of the Bible stress life’s mystery and brevity using two vivid metaphors of “a fading flower or withering grass” and “a swiftly passing shadow”. That life offers little joy, peace and satisfaction is well known even to children. Also, all human beings are familiar with the progressive labour, pain, insecurity, sorrow, and disappointments that we all have to endure as long as we are alive. Furthermore, the concepts of death and the afterlife presented in the Bible reveals the God had purposely packaged heaven as the final destination for all humans that pass the entrance examination. John 14:2-3 says:
“In my father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
This is an expression of God’s love and mercy to all human beings. Out of this everlasting love, the Almighty God has convincingly and systematically revealed His eternal plans and purposes to humanity, about how we are created to start our lives here on earth for the singular purpose of doing the perfect will of God. This is to enable us live our lives in ways that honour God in all things, for the ultimate goal of spending eternity with Him in heaven. Therefore, the above passage makes it very clear that heaven is being specially prepared only for those who are prepared to do whatever it takes to enter. I therefore pray that God will help our preparations and graciously admit us into heaven in Jesus’ name.
Now, Matthew 19:23 says that a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven, not because riches and wealth are evil, nor because heaven was made only for the poor, but because the typical characteristics of affluent people are contrary to the will of God. Such behaviours include pride and confidence in human wisdom, fame, achievements, money, and power. None found with these will not enter into heaven. The truth is; Jesus extends the promise of heaven to all who come to Him by faith without classifications such as financial status, gender, age, culture or nationality. Matthew 18:3 says except a person is converted and becomes a little child in faith, total submission and obedience to the will of God, he or she will not enter into heaven. Finally, Matthew 7:21 says, not all churchgoers will be admitted into heaven, but only those that operate in the will of God. The big question is, are you prepared for heaven?

Action Point.

Father, please whatever will make me miss heaven; take it out of my life in Jesus’ name.
Luke 19:28-21:24,
Job 28:7-19

Matthew_5-3: Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Since Christ My Soul From Sin Set Free

John_8-32: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

John_8-32: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Since Christ My Soul From Sin Set Free
This World Has Been A Heaven To Me
And ‘Mid Earth’s Sorrows And Its Woe
‘Tis Heaven My Jesus Here To Know

O Hallelujah. Yes Tis Heaven
Tis Heaven To Know My Sins Forgiven
On Land Or Sea, What Matters Where
Where Jesus Is. Tis Heaven There.

Once Heaven Seemed A Far-Off
Place
Till Jesus Showed His Srnilling
Face
Now Its Begun Within My Soul
Twill Last While Endiess Ages Roll

What Matters Where On Earth We Dwell?
On Mountain Top, Or In The Dell?
In Cottage, Or In Mansion Fair
Where Jesus Is, ‘Tis Heaven There.
Amen!

Breathe upon us, Lord, from heaven.

Ephesians_1-3. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

Ephesians_1-3. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

Breathe upon us, Lord, from heaven.

Fill us with the Holy Ghost,
Promise of the Father given,
Send us now a Pentecost.

Breathe upon us, breathe upon us,
With Thy love our hearts inspire;
Breathe upon us, breathe upon us,
Lord, baptize us now with fire.

While the Spirit hover over us,
Open all our hearts, we pray;
To Thine image, Lord, restore us,
Witness in our souls today.

From all sin grant us exemption,
Wash us in the cleansing flood;
Let us know the full redemption
Purchased for us by the blood.

Lift us, Lord, Oh lift us higher,
From the carnal mind set free;
Fill us with refining fire,
Give us perfect liberty. Amen!

As Jesus Is In Heaven, So Are We Here On Earth

Matthew_28-18-1: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth

Matthew_28-18-1: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth

As Jesus Is In Heaven, So Are We Here On Earth

“Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ . . .”

2 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)

2-Corinthians_2-14: Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place

2-Corinthians_2-14: Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place

Life is filled with mysteries. Life will not give to you what you expect. Life will only give to you what you demand. By the reason of the fall, there is an adversary at work all over the nations of the world. People will contend for the things that belong to you. You will see people fight to take away from you what is rightfully yours. Knowing this you have got to make up your mind, guard your loins and ensure that you don’t sit by and expect that things would fall on you like a bag of cherry.

We live in a world that is filled with injustice and all kinds of mischief. Oftentimes, things are not as straight as they appear. You must understand these facts. However the mysteries of life can be unravelled when we apply kingdom principles. The kingdom of God overrules all other kingdoms. All other kingdoms are subject to the kingdom of God.

1-John_4-4: Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

1-John_4-4: Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

As a child of God, you don’t need to be afraid. By the reason of your connection to God you are already a victorious person. 1 John 4:4 tells us “Ye are of God, little Children and have overcome them, because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world”. You are a world overcomer. You are a world system overcomer and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. We always win; it does not matter what the enemy does.

We are already declared the winner because Jesus died for us. He descended to hell; He rose triumphant over death, hell and grave. He is sitting at the right hand of the Father Almighty. He spoilt principalities and powers and made a show of them openly. So we are already winners. But we have got to step out in faith and act like the winner that we are. God wants us to always put on a far-above – mentality. Far-above is where Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father. Jesus is the head of the church. As He is in heaven, so are we here on earth. There is no material for failure in you. You can always win in the challenges of life.

Psalms_91-11: For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

Let earth and heaven agree,

Angels and men be joined,

To celebrate with me

The Saviour of mankind;

To adore the all- atoning Lamb,

And bless the sound of Jesus

name.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus, transporting sound!

The joy of earth and heaven;

No other help is found,

No other name is given,

By which we can salvation have;

But Jesus came the world to

save.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus, harmonious name!

It charms the hosts above;

They evermore proclaim,

And wonder at His love;

‘Tis all their happiness to gaze

‘Tis heaven to see our Jesus’ face.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

His name the sinner hears,

And is from sin set free;

‘Tis music in his ears,

‘Tis life and victory;

New songs do now his lips employ,

And dances his glad heart for joy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stung by the scorpion sin,

My poor expiring soul

The baImy sound drinks in,

And is at once made whole:

See there my Lord upon the tree!

I hear, I feel, He died for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

O unexampled love!

O All- redeeming race!

How swiftly didst Thou move

To save a fallen race!

What shall I do to make it known

 What Thou for all mankind hast done?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

O for a trumpet voice

On all the world to call;

To bid their hearts rejoice

In Him who died for all,

For all my Lord was crucified,

For all, for all my Saviour died!
