Jesus is coming soon – Part 2
Once a man leaves the earth, the mercy of God is withdrawn from him. Mercy is only available on the earth, “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.” Heb. 9: 27. After judgment is eternity, which has two sides: Heaven and Hell.
At this door, souls of many ‘Christians’ could not go in because their Christian garments had been taken from them. Some had their Christian garments torn, while others had stains on their garments.
One thing I noticed Satan has done to a great extent was to make people not to be heaven conscious. The devil will not stop us from going to church or hearing sermons, as long as it has nothing to do with heaven. He will not oppose our prayers much since he knows all we pray about are earthly things. The devil has taken the consciousness of heaven off people’s mind, so that they don’t prepare for it. Apostle Paul said, “… work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Phil 2:12.
Standing at this Door of Salvation makes me know that no matter what we say or do in the name of the Lord, our Christian garment MUST remain spotless, so that when we get to this door we will pass through. Jesus Christ emphatically told Nicodemus “Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘’you must be born again.” John 3:7.
If Jesus Christ comes as you are reading this article, are you sure of making it to heaven? If you are not sure, this is a very good opportunity to dedicate or re-dedicate your life to Him by confessing these words with faith in your heart:
My Lord Jesus, I come to you as a sinner, please forgive me of my wrong doings. I believe in my heart today, that You died and rose on the third day for me to live; You shed Your blood for my redemption. I accept You now as my personal Lord and Saviour. Thank You for saving me, in Jesus name, Amen!
• If my Christian garment has been taken away, torn or stained by sin, my Lord Jesus have mercy on me and let there be a restoration.
• Holy Spirit help me, so that sin does not have dominion over my life.
• By the grace of God Almighty, I will not end my Christian journey in hell.
In Jesus Mighty Name.
Door Of Righteousness
Coming out of Paradise, we came to another entrance with the inscription Door of Righteousness. When a man accepts Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and Saviour, it is expected of him to live a righteous life, following the footsteps of Christ Jesus. Jesus came to the earth, as a man to show us the standard heaven will require from us. “Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.” John 5:19. As Christians, we are His ambassadors, so what He will not do, we must not do. Where He will not go, we must not go. Being born-again, we must become totally like Him.
“For in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring. Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.” Acts 17:28-31.
