WHAT WILL IT BE LIKE…

“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU.” (John 14:2)

Heaven will be a place of glorious life that will never end. Joy inexpressible, limitless peace, pure love, beauty beyond description—that’s what heaven is. Utmost of all will be the presence of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, with whom we will enjoy fellowship forever

“We will hunger no longer, or thirst anymore; or will the sun beat down on us, or any heat; for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be our shepherd and will guide us to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from our eyes.” (Rev. 7:16-17) Everything we will ever need will be ours, forever…

We have the Holy Spirit as the promise of future blessing. But we also groan inside ourselves as we look forward to the time when God will adopt us as full members of his family. THEN HE WILL GIVE US EVERYTHING HE HAS FOR US. HE WILL RAISE OUR BODIES AND GIVE GLORY TO THEM. (Rom. 8:22-23)

♫Won’t it be wonderful there
Having no burdens to bear
Joyously singing, with heartbells all ringing
Won’t it be wonderful there?

06-10-18 Loved One’s Devotion NO OTHER NAME BUT THE NAME OF JESUS…

My awesome, Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: The next day the rulers, the elders and the teachers of the law met in Jerusalem. Annas the high priest was there…They had Peter and John brought before them and began to question them: “BY WHAT POWER OR WHAT NAME DID YOU DO THIS?” Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said: “Rulers and elders of the people! If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed, then know this, you and all the people of Israel: IT IS BY THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH, WHOM YOU CRUCIFIED but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. SALVATION IS FOUND IN NO ONE ELSE, for THERE IS NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN TO MANKIND BY WHICH WE MUST BE SAVED.” (Acts 4:5-12)

The Imperils released “Oh Buddha” in 1979:

♫No, it won’t be old Buddha that’s sitting on the throne
And it won’t be old Mohammed that’s calling us Home
And it won’t be Hare Krishna that plays that trumpet tune
And WE’RE GOING TO SEE
THE SON not Reverend Moon!

When we pastored in Sedro Woolley, Washington a couple brothers and myself, in my local church sang this song. It has special interest to me because I had just been saved for a little while and felt that I had a good understanding that by no other name under heaven could we be saved.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, BE STRONG IN THE LORD

06-09-18 Loved One’s Devotion NOT GUILTY, HOW CAN THIS BE…

My awesome, Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: “…THE LORD HATES: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.” (Prov. 6:16-19) Because of these sins, our names would not be written in the “Book of Life” Then at the judgement: Anyone whose name was not written in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.” (Rev. 20:15)

You might be tempted to say, “I am safe, I have not done any of these but: “…ALL HAVE SINNED and fall short of the glory of God…Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man (Adam), and death through sin, and so death spread to all men BECAUSE ALL SINNED(Rom. 3:23, 5:12)

You see, we are born into sin, it is in our DNA! Adam and Eve chose to disobey God (when they had it all). The devil lied to them and convinced them to be disobedient to God. Then “sin” became a part of their nature, so all who are born, inherit this sin nature. So, what is our remedy to rid ourselves of this nature? “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.” (John 3:16) We are forgiven but we need to get rid of the sin nature, through sanctification, “…our old self was CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST so that it would put an end to sin in our bodies…” (Rom. 6:6)

  • THANK GOD I AM FREE, FREE, FREE FROM THIS WORLD OF SIN,
  • WASHED IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS, I’VE BEEN BORN AGAIN;

06-08-18 Loved One’s Devotion THE IMPORTANCE OF FEAR…

My awesome, Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: “GREAT FEAR CAME OVER THE WHOLE CHURCH, and over all who heard of these things.” (Acts 5:11)

A man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira lied to the Holy Spirit and they we struck dead (Acts 5:1-4). This happened when God was pouring out miraculous blessings on the church, people by the thousands were being saved and added to the church. So, it’s just like the devil to interrupt these blessings with tempting this couple to lie to God. We must realize: Jesus said, “I am the way, and THE TRUTH, and the life.” (John 14:6) and …IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO LIE…” (Heb. 6:18)

The bible teaches us that: ALL LIARS, will have their part in the Lake burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (Rev. 21:8)

Heaven will be, among many other awesome wonders, a place of perfect truth, as a result there can be no liars there. So, if we are having a problem with telling lies we must repent and turn away from all untruth in our lives, confess to God and ask forgiveness, then walk in truth.

“The fear of the LORD is A FOUNTAIN OF LIFE, turning a person from the snares of death. The fear of the LORD leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble.”  (Prov. 14:27, 19:23)

TELLING THE TRUTH BRINGS JOY TO THE LORD
