PIC: Peruvian Andean road circa 1950. Life is full of choices. You know? (Sometimes you don’t have a choice – like this only road over the Andes: Peruvian Andean road circa 1950.) We want the best choice – every time, right? We make a choice, choosing one over another – in order to have the […]
Jesus spoke this to Paul on the road to Damascus – one short verse that explains the Gospel of salvation in Jesus, in Acts 26:18.
If we face death because of our faith in Christ, we can be confident knowing that He is with us all the way. He alone is our hope. “Fear not.” At the moment of our death – we put on Immortality.
A series about Heaven. What’s it going to be like? How do I get there?
What He told us Heaven is going to be like for those who follow Him (1-12): We will all be changed. –Luke 23:39-43; 1 Corinthians 15:52. Heaven is built by God. – John 14:2-3. Heaven arrives without prior notice. –2 Peter 3:10. Heaven is so fantastic – it is inexpressible. –2 Corinthians 12:4….
Heaven for us – starts when we die. Heaven is joy and goodness everywhere – always – where only the goodness of God surrounds us.
Christ secured our eternal home. Jesus paid it all – so we could be forgiven of all these sins, all our past, all that separates us from The Most Holy God. What’s not covered? He’s got it all covered, penalty paid. We just need to humbly get together with Him and plead His grace upon us.
Heaven is where – all the earth experience is behind us — without the enemies of our soul to wreck everything
All our life we deal with the complexities of “owning” two homes: “the home of the body” and our “home with the Lord”. What predominates your living from day to day? Jesus promised as He was leaving earth, going away in the clouds – that He would prepare a place for us in His Home – called Heaven (John 14). Read: Jesus will return soon, just as He left
So you want to go to Heaven. The Bible tells us so much about God’s Home Heaven. God created us inside a physical world. Here we are limited by time and space. But Heaven is in the spirit world dimension where Father God dwells.
The time it takes to go from earth to God’s presence – is instant. There is no waiting around in the next dimension for earth time to finish, no midway point of gathering, no Purgatory. It will be an instantaneous experience for all mankind that ever lived. At the moment of death, our soul instantly leaves…
…a series about death and dying Just beyond the veil December 10, 2018 Just beyond this dimension where we live – there is a whole different existence prepared for us by God. And it’s eternal. Got your mind around that? “beyond the veil“. thefreedictionary.com: …in a mysterious or hidden place or state, especially… Filed Under: […]
In God’s Home Heaven, we who followed Jesus on earth — will all be truly INVINCIBLE, living in incorruptible, immortal bodies – like Jesus had when He was resurrected. v50 “Now I say this, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God….”
All our life we will feel the pains of this world. That is a reality. After all, we are still human. The difference is: we have hope in Christ…way before He implemented Creation – His plan was always to “redeem” us back to Himself, to bring us to His salvation, to give us His strength and encouragement in this life
As we are raised up we will be given an “incorruptible” (everlasting) new body, like Christ’s resurrected body. Christ was the first, and we are next
Heaven. What’s it going to be? Many say, I can only imagine. Well, not really – because we can really know, not merely “imagine”. The Bible tells us a lot about Heaven.
I’ll do this for a million years – in Heaven.
Galatians 5:19-21 Now the practices of the sinful nature are clearly evident: they are sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality (total irresponsibility, lack of self-control), idolatry, sorcery, hostility, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions [that promote heresies], envy, drunkenness, riotous behavior, and other things like these. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, […]
We love simple pleasures. Don’t we? Life is good. Sittin’ on the dock of a bay Walkin’ bare foot through the grass A day at the beach, the waves crashing, the soft sands, rocky shores and cliffs BBQs and being with family and playing with grandkids A good cup a’ Joe in the morning God […]
Without Christ we are all due to appear before The Judge of All to receive His holy justice, His due sentencing. 18 For [God does not overlook sin and] the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who in their wickedness suppress and stifle the truth, 19 because that which […]
When we start “the after-life”, things will heat-up for some of us, but things get really cool for the rest of us. If you know what I mean. Jesus predicted “the end” (Matthew 24:verse 14), and He’s showing us signs of the times in order to give us a heads up.
Heaven will be …filled-up full with unending awe of the One-and-Only, the wonderfully awesome God, and …filled-up full with overflowing love that voids any need for laws. Love will rule inside our insides. The peace of God, in Heaven, will surpass our present ability to understand that realm.
“Now” is good – so immediate… so absorbing. Demands so much attention. I practice being here – now. That’s good. Heaven is so…”later”, so not-pressing, so very “out of sight – out of mind”, so abstract. I am here now, but I want to be more aware of where I am going when I die. Where are you going when you die?
Just beyond “beyond the veil”, beyond this dimension where we live – there is a whole different existence prepared for us by God. And it’s eternal. Got your mind around that? For those who accepted Christ in this life — it will be totally… Awesome!
Some sweet day I’m a goin’ home! I’ll fly away! Wow! What a day that will be.
I have hope. Anyone on earth can have hope and joy everyday – through Jesus. He carries me. He is “the lifter of my soul.” What about you? Have you drawn close to God? Whoever you are, no matter what you’ve done with the privilege of your existence – today there is hope for you in Jesus.
Time, by God, is totally different from time as experienced by man on earth. Time will be no more — in heaven. Heaven will be a Timeless Infinite Continuum.
Feeling worthy for heaven? So you say you gave a dollar when you helped the local church and you gave a precious hour to go help a sin sick soul. You’re at the house of God enough, for you… like once or twice a year. Maybe that’s when you clean house, and pray – and […]
Who was correct? Graham -or- Hawking? Billy said “I’ll be in heaven in the future life”, whereas Hawking postulated there is no afterlife, saying heaven “is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.” “One thing’s for sure: Both of these men now know the truth of what happens after death.” – Robin O’Hare […]
Also see: Entrance Granted Into the Eternal Ever wonder what it will be like to arrive at The Entrance into the Eternal, to actually be standing in front of the very entrance? How spectacular that will be! I’m not talking about a near death experience and seeing lights-and-all while laying comatose. That is not biblical. […]
What if God appeared right in front of you, right there where you are, right now, and asked, “I’d like you to come to heaven and enjoy my Kingdom with me.” Would you say, “No”? What kind of fool would you be!…? You might be thinking, “What kind of fool do you think I am?” […]
Have you ever imagined “you” as the perfect person? Where every time, all the time, with anyone, anywhere – you never do living “wrong” – always act “just right” inside yourself and out, without fail respond lovingly, without hesitation forgive any slight, any wrong against you, wholly loving who you’re with (‘agape’ love)? Imagine You, […]
