Jesus is coming soon – Part 5
• Door Of Money
It was my encounter here that made me know that what we call ‘my money’ is not true. It is God that entrusted it into our hands, and when the time comes, we shall all give account of it. Every unfaithful act with money will be judged at this door. I saw many souls that were told to depart because of their unfaithfulness with money.
Wives that stole their husband’s money, husbands that stole from their wives and children that stole from parents without informing the owner and repenting from it, all were told to depart because no thief will be permitted in heaven. Let us all repent now of these wrongdoings, so that mercy will prevail over judgment. Every money we borrowed and did not pay back or ask the person involved to forgive us, people’s money that we collected and did not render the service for the money collected, we shall give account of them at this door.
I saw a man that had passed through the first three doors, but could not go through the door of money because he did not use the money to take good care of his family. It is our duty as men by God’s covenant to financially take care of our family. Apostle Paul told Timothy, “But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” 1 Tim 5:8. A man that has denied the faith and worse than an unbeliever cannot dwell with Him in heaven. Those that mismanaged public funds will not go through the door of money. There were people the Lord told to go and be a blessing to the needy but refused. On getting to this door, it appeared on the screen and for this reason they could not continue their journey. They were told to depart.
“And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” Deut 8:18. We came with no money to this earth and we shall surely return with no money. So, we must not let money stop us from getting home. The issue of money stopped many from getting to heaven, unfaithfulness to God with the money He gave us and not being faithful in our dealings with people will surely stand against us at the Door of Money, if we do not repent now.
• Lord Jesus, deliver me from the love of money.
• Holy Spirit help me; let my soul not go to hell because of money.
• Heavenly Father, teach me how to lay up treasures in heaven.
IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME.
• Door Of Fulfilment
Getting to this door of fulfilment makes it glaring that our journey here on earth is to run a divine errand for the Lord, and the life we call our own is not ours but that of God. He brought us here for Himself and not for us to live as we like. He gave us different abilities because our job descriptions here on earth are not the same. By the time a man gets to this door, he is expected to have finished the divine assignment given to him by the Lord. To pass through this earth living your life as you like is an act of disobedience to God that created you in His own image.
Reading Matthew 25:14-30, Jesus likened this parable to the kingdom of heaven, where everyone has been given a divine assignment and will give account of it. From this scripture, two of the servants gave account of all they were able to do before the return of their master and they were allowed into His kingdom, “His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord.’” Matt 25:21. The third man went to hide the talent and his master never asked him what other things he did, because our God is only interested in what He sent you to do for Him and not what you choose to do. For not living a fulfilled live this man went to hell, “And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’” Matt 25:30. Everyone that does not live a fulfilled life is called an ‘unprofitable soul.’
