Hmmm… Okay, let’s do this.
As Christians, These 3 Facts are well known;
1. Heaven and Hell is real.
2 Heaven is beautiful beyond comprehension, where the very presence of God illuminates everywhere..hence no need for night or darkness, while Hell is unimaginably horrible. A place of Everlasting torment and anguish, suffering that lasts for eternity..
3. Everyday we wake up could be our Last. After death comes judgment.
That been said, What now makes us disqualify ourselves from Heaven even though we pray to make it?
We say we believe, we accept, we love Jesus etc but our very action and lifestyle states otherwise. Rev 3:1 “I know your works; you have the name of being alive, and you are dead!
A little of wrong can’t possibly disqualify me..Ezekiel 33:13 “Though I say to the righteous that he shall surely live, yet if he trusts in his righteousness and commits iniquity, none of his righteous deeds shall be remembered…
It doesn’t matter, we are in the dispensation of Grace…Gal 5:13 “For you were called to freedom brethren; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the Flesh….v19″Now, the works of the Flesh are plain: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, selfishness, dissension, party spirit, envy, drunkenness, carousing and the like. I warn you as I warned you before, those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
I can be a worldly christian..Lk 16:13″No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.” 14 The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus. 15 He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God’s sight.
I don’t want to be too biblish, carrying christianity on my head….Rev 3: 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou were cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Christianity is not a bread and butter religion..all good and no bad. If it were so, Paul would not in his letter to the philippians admonish them to work out their salvation with Fear and Trembling. In the visions of John at the island of Patmos( Revelations) Jesus Christ stated many rewards to those who endured and conquered..without battles, there are no conquerors.
The way Forward
Col 3: 5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.
If the Bible says don’t do It..then, Don’t! No reasoning or argument can change the Word. Mordenization and education can’t either.
James rightly said it..2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
You cannot be a Born again christian without works. Any tree that doesn’t bear fruit will be cut down and burnt.
Do you still drink?
Do you still Lie?
Do you still engage in immorality?
Do you still dress indecently?
Do you still party?
Do you still worship worldly gains?
Do you still indulge your Flesh?
Come back to the Blood stained cross…Repent of your sins and give your Life (this time I hope we really mean it) to Jesus christ, so we will escape the Wrath of God that is sure to come! Then and only then will the gate of Heaven be opened unto us.
Remember, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered the heart of man what our God has prepared for those that wait for Him.” The city He has prepared for us is worthy of the God of grace and of glory.
