ARE YOU REALLY READY FOR HEAVEN?


                       ARE YOU REALLY READY FOR HEAVEN?



 The BIBLE says: “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, BUT IN THESE LAST DAYS HE HAS SPOKEN TO US BY HIS SON (Jesus Christ), whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.” (Hebrews 1:1-3)

 

Note: Jesus has prepared a place in Heaven for those who truly love Him. For those who faithfully and wholeheartedly follow Him and for those who obey His commands. (John 14:1-4, 14, 21, 23-24). Heaven will NOT be the home of those who DO NOT obey Jesus teachings and commands.

 

Jesus says:NOT everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, (Watch This… Don’t Miss It!) BUT ONLY THE ONE WHO DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'(Matthew 7:21-23)

 

We can’t say or think to ourselves… “I have believed and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior… And now I’m ALL set to go to Heaven. NO, my brothers and sisters, we MUST continue to daily…”Workout our salvation with fear and trembling.” (Philippians 2:12) It would be a HUGE mistake to think that once we’re saved…We’re always saved! That’s NOT what the Holy Scriptures teaches or what it says. We MUST be doers of the word of GOD…If we desire to enter Heaven! (James 1:22) Jesus has already warned us that...  NOT everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 7:21-23)

 
The BIBLE teaches us to stay away from sin and live holy, blameless, godly lives in this world while we wait for the return of Christ…

 
“THE ACTS OF THE FLESH ARE OBVIOUS: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. “I WARN YOU, AS I DID BEFORE, THAT THOSE WHO LIVE LIKE THIS WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.” (Galatians 5:19-21)

 

Note: If you have accepted/believed in Jesus Christ but are still committing ANY of these sins…According to the Holy Scriptures heaven WILL NOT be your eternal homeI WARN YOU, AS I DID BEFORE, THAT THOSE WHO LIVE LIKE THIS WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.” (Galatians 5:19-21) Remember what the Holy Scriptures say…The wages of sin is DEATH (Sinning ONLY leads to hell)!” (Romans 6:23) NOT Life And certainly NOT going to heaven either!  BE HOLY, says the Lord, because I am Holy! (Ephesians 1:4, Hebrews 12:14, 1 Peter 1:15-16) The Scriptures are clear in this … “WITHOUT HOLINESS ONE WILL SEE THE LORD,” (Hebrews 12:14)-Amen!

 

WE MUST… JUST SAY, “NO” To Sin! (John 5:14, 8:11, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Ephesians 5:1-11, Colossians 3:1-10, Titus 2:11-14, Hebrews 10:26-27, 12:14, Revelation 21:27, 22:15, Psalms 1:5)

 

Really “LOVE” people…DO NOT gossip about people, DO NOT talk behind their backs, DO NOT show favoritism or any kind of prejudice towards anyone. The command from our Lord Jesus is; To love one another.” (John 13:34-35, Romans 13:8, James 2:1-4, 1 Peter 1:22, 3:8, 1 John 3:11, 3:23, 4:7, 4:11-12, 4:20-21) Jesus says: So in everything, DO TO OTHERS WHAT YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO TO YOU, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12)

 

So the question is: ARE YOU REALLY READY FOR HEAVEN?

 

If you are not ready or you have not being faithful (Loyal), obedient, devoted to Christ…REPENT NOW of your sins and DO NOT repeat the offense again. (Hebrews 10:26-27, 1 John 3:9-10, 5:18)

 

Friends, Seek GOD daily in Bible reading and daily prayers…Keep your eyes on Jesus, who IS, “The (ONLY) author and finisher of our faith”. (Hebrews 12:2) Be loyal to Jesus Christ, be committed and devoted to HIM in ALL that you do…Living your life for Jesus and heaven will be your home. (2 Peter 1:5-11, Colossians 3:23-25, 1 John 2:3-6, Matthew 7:21)

 

These are the words of the living Christ…And He really means what He says, my friends…

 

"As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. (Watch This…Don’t Miss It!) The Son of Man will send out his angels, AND THEY WILL WEED OUT OF HIS KINGDOM EVERYTHING THAT CAUSES SIN AND ALL WHO DO EVIL. They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:40-42)

 

Live the holy and the righteous life daily, friends…If the kingdom of God you want to enter. The king of glory will soon appear…Be ready, stay alert, be on guard! Soon and very soon…We will be going home, my friends!

 

Jesus says: “To the one who is victorious AND DOES MY WILL TO THE END, I will give authority over the nations- (Revelation 2:26) - Amen

 


GOD BLESS YOU ALL NOW AND ALWAYS

YOUR FRIEND,
