Get Ready For Heaven

I don’t k now about you, but I’ve just about had a gut full of this sorry world!! Heaven is looking better than Facebook right now. I knooow!!! How can this be possible??!! Because Heaven is better than warm chocolate chip cookies and cold milk. Plus the fact I’m hoping there’s plenty of both waiting on me when I get there. Oh knock it off! It’s my dream, or delusion, just let a guy have a moment for once already.
With all that is going on the world right now a lot of us are finding comfort in the fact that God is still in control. It doesn’t matter what the main stream media tells you or what they do in Washington, God is still control. And God doesn’t run for cookies and milk when the press calls Him names. (I see a theme going on here). God is still in control.
One of the things that I was thankful for when I was a kid was the fact that the end of the world would happen long after my time on this rock was over. Well, that kid was wrong, very wrong. If you pay any attention to current events and have paid attention to Bible prophecy concerning the end times, this world is just about done. In fact some of the experts are saying it’s possible for it to be happening as soon as September 2015. I know! That’s like in NOW! I’m not saying that the Rapture of the Church is going to happen in September. I have no such knowledge but there is an awful lot of truth to what some of the Bible Scholars are saying. That is all I know to be true. Thus, I would hate to dismiss this and dismiss it all as just sensationalism, as it very possibly could be true.
And although I’m kind of being light hearted here, there’s never been a time like this ever before on this earth. The stars and the heavens are lining up and producing things long ago foretold in the Bible. Countries are aligning just as foretold in Bible prophecy. Perhaps it’s high time to start paying attention to the Bible and not so much what’s happening on your favorite TV show. Perhaps it’s time to stop those habits that you know are going to end with your future somewhere other than Heaven. Perhaps it’s time to pray and ask forgiveness of your sins. Perhaps God really does exist. Perhaps there really is a HELL with fire and all that stuff. Perhaps there really is a Heaven. Perhaps the devil really is real. Perhaps Jesus was a real man, who really was crucified on a cross. Perhaps He really did rise from the dead. Perhaps because He really did come back to life, our sins can be forgiven by simply asking. Perhaps that little voice in your head that has been telling you all this same stuff for years is telling the truth. Perhaps it’s time to pay attention that little voice. Perhaps it’s time to quit running from God.
God sent Jesus to this world to save it, not condemn it. It says so right here in John 3:17 “For God did not send the Son into the world to condemn that world, but that the world should be saved through Him. “ And of course most people can quote John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him, should not perish, but have eternal life.” When I was kid neither of those two Bible verses made any sense to me. As an adult after serving God for more than 40 years, those scriptures are truly golden to me now.
But even with all that in my head and heart, I’m watching the blood moons, the Star of Bethlehem came around for the first time in 2,000 years and a solar eclipse all in one year. The Bible tells us that we see signs of the end time in the sun the moon and the stars. And if you know anything about Hebrew timelines and the Shemitah, this is exciting! And scary at the same time!
It doesn’t matter what your lot in life is, or where you’re at in your personal life, Jesus Christ died for you personally, yet conventionally for us all. It doesn’t matter if you’re on skid row. Jesus died for you. It doesn’t matter if you’re on death row, Jesus died for you. If you’re on Music row, Jesus died for you. Even if you’re on Wall Street or Main Street, Jesus died for you too. And because he did, your sins can be forgiven right now if you just ask God to do so. God looks at the condition for your heart, not your body.
Simply say this prayer: “Father please forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me from my past. Please come into my life and my heart. Fill my spirit with Your Spirit. Thank you for all that You have done for me. Amen.”
I know it sounds simple and it is, it really is. It almost even seems foolish to think it’s that simple doesn’t it? “ But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;” 1 Corinthians 1:27 KJV. So it’s not foolish to think that it can be that easy. It’s true regardless of what the devil tells you. Accept your salvation and begin studying the Bible for yourself. Reading the Bible begins to comfort your heart and soul. Plus you can read all of this stuff for yourself and know what’s going on here.
Oh ya, one more thing. If you’re a Muslim and you’re reading this right now, Jesus died for you too and that prayer in the earlier paragraph will work for you too. Jesus died for “Whosoever believes in Him,” Muslims included.
Come on y’all, let’s go to Heaven together and rejoice in the fact that we made it there. Let’s sing songs about it and worship our God together. In fact, let’s do it for eternity, what do you say? I promise to share my warm chocolate chip cookies and milk with you. How can you turn down an offer like that?
