Necessity of having heaven in view -Part 4
It is the desire of every living being to see his Creator, but the experiences of the world, where he presently lives is standing against his desire to experience the glorious presence of the Creator in heaven. Many are now comparing heaven to earth because they thought they have seen it all and, therefore, could compare the two places, but little did they know that heaven, which is the throne of God is far better in all ramifications than earth, which is His footstool. If you are living in a mansion in one of the big cities of the world, there is no way that could be measured up to the smallest place in heaven. A place where God situates His throne cannot be compared to a place wherein He sets His foot.
The Scripture expressly states in Isaiah 66:1, “Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? And where is the place of my rest?” Heaven is magnificent, glorious, outstanding and wonderful. And because it hosts the presence of the Almighty God, it therefore exudes liberty of all kinds. The security in heaven is manned by angels who neither snooze nor doze from eternity to eternity. The security operatives on earth can sleep because they are human beings, but the angels do not sleep, the Bible says, “He that keepeth Israel shall neither sleep nor slumber.”
Everything about this place cannot be expressed or described enough with word. The environment is impeccable and exquisite. Heaven has no need of sun or moon for God’s glory lightens it up from eternity to eternity. There is no power supply or outage, nothing like NEPA or generator, as we have here.
Rev. 21:23 says, “And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shin in it, for the glory of God did lighten it, and the lamb is the light thereof.”
In heaven, the eternal light springing from the brightness of God and the Lamb precludes the need of a sun or moon. All other illuminations are diffused into God’s light, which only shines in this city, giving it the beauty that the eye will desire to behold forever. Brethren, I can be denied visa to any country of the world and I will not be bothered, but I will do anything to secure entrance into heaven. Anybody that misses heaven has missed all.
There are many people who are stressing themselves in vain for America, British and Japanese visa, which are places they considered as beautiful countries in the world. But anything including cities built by man will one day become archaic, atavistic and passes away. I implore readers to rather seek visa to that country that exists forever, which is heaven, where there is neither death nor pain than the world full of wickedness, cries and yet perishes.
Beloved, it is necessary and prudent that we comprehensively explore the view of heaven to enable us make our choice on where to live our eternity and what to expect as we journey to that perpetual abode. If you want to enjoy unspeakable joy seek for the Kingdom of heaven, where God Almighty established His throne and your pleasure will have no bound in Jesus name.
Rev. 21:4 states, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
Heaven is a place of joy from eternity to eternity. If you enter heaven all the affliction, trouble and sorrow, shall cease. There shall be no more suffering or death. Brethren, I want to be there. I don’t know what you are passing through now and people are mocking you and laughing at you and you have cried and prayed and nothing is working. My friend, don’t cry again, there is a place better than the earth, and that is heaven. When you cross over, there shall be no more tears, sorrow or pain, for the former things troubling you shall pass away, and you shall not labour again, shall not have any need for hospital forever in Jesus name.
