But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. (Matthew 6:20 ESV)
Fix your eyes on things that are in Heaven. Always look at things from the perspective of the word of God. Remember that this world is temporary, and there is a judgement day and an eternal destination. Do not be distracted, rather, cling to God as you wait for a glorious future in Heaven.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. ” (Revelation 21:4 ESV)
There is a day in the future when God will set us completely free from pain, death, sorrow, fear, torment, disappointment and other bad things.
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4
There is a day that victory will be complete and death is completely defeated. There will no longer be anything that makes us sin or causes us to stumble.
For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. 1 Corinthians 15:22 – 27
Right now, we live with sin and deception and as long as those two are here on earth, there will surely be judgement, pain and death. Judgement even begins in the house of God.
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17
When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” 1 Corinthians 15:54
Regardless or who you are are, what you think you are in Christ, you can fall, if you are not humble. Of course when you fall, there will be consequences that feel painful but are actually acts of God’s grace and love. Of course when you fall, God’s grace is available to pick you up again.
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. 1 Corinthians 10:12
God disciplines us so that we will not be condemned together with the world.
So the good news is that there is a place called Heaven, A very wonderful place filled with love, joy and no pain. There, God will wipe away every pain and tear from our eyes.
We will even forget that we ever felt pain or even if we remember, there will be no trauma or stress attached to that memory. Any how, we will be very happy.
Thoughts of Heaven should fill us with thanksgiving and rejoicing. We should rejoice because our names are written in heaven,
However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:20
God has shown me visions of Heaven and I have also had glimpses of Heaven. They are instantaneous and there is no distance. One moment I am here and the next moment, I am in a trance, in Heaven.
Heaven is real! God is real! Praise God. There is a day of constant love, peace, joy, glory and laughter waiting for us in Heaven.
I was praying for a long time, seeking God’s face and waiting upon Him, then I found myself in a secret, inner room in Heaven. This is one of the inner chambers of God and He expects all His children to visit there often. I suddenly heard the Lord say, “Anything you ask of me I will do it. Anytime you are here, if you ask for anything I will do it.”
God wants all His Children to constantly wait upon Him and seek His face. In the secret place of prayer, you can visit the inner room and experience Him. There, you will be given different tastes of the Master. Jesus knew the secret of His Fathers’s presence and knew how to pray.
In the inner room, you will be so interwoven and intertwined with the will of God that you will actually pray in line with God’s will. There, you will pray for what the Holy Spirit inspires and leads you to pray for. “Anything you ask of me, I will do it” does not mean that you will ask for a million mansions on earth and God will do it. No. It means that you will ask the way Jesus asked and you will receive the way that Jesus received.
Jesus was dead to the flesh and married to the will of God. He was in constant union with the will of God. Constant union with the will of God, coupled with constant heartfelt, steadfast prayer and worship leads to intimacy and the glory of His presence. In His presence there is fullness of joy.
In His presence, you will know the secret of two hearts beating as one and as you pray in line with God’s will, God will answer you. He promised to give us good things instead of snake. He promised to give us the fullness of the Holy Spirit. One thing that you can ask Him for in the inner room, is the full, constant infilling of the Holy Spirit which we all know is in line with His will for us.
Believe me, if you have the constant manifest presence of God, you have everything. When you have the reality of His love and presence, all inordinate desires, passions and dreams will die by power and force. If you ask, you will receive, and if you do not ask, you will not receive. That is the word of God.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
Some years ago, I spent time seeking the Lord’s face and waiting upon Him. Immediately I lay down, I saw the Lord in form of cloud and He entered me from my lower belly/waist. Then, the Lord held my hand and immediately, we were standing in the clouds looking down at the earth. He stood beside me in the clouds and sky as a pillar of cloud.
The earth looked very dim, dirty and ugly. I saw all sorts of demons parading the streets of London. I could see the London Eye. We were standing in the clouds above the city of London looking down at the earth. The Lord said to me, “this is the earth that people are willing to kill and do every evil just to own.”
I replied, “Lord it looks so filthy. I can’t believe that this is the world that people love so much!” It looked so dirty and filthy.
“Exactly, my child. You are seeing clearly from the realms of the Spirit. The earth is not as appealing and glamorous as men think it is. With proper vision, you have been granted the grace to see the earth from the right perspective.”
Beloved, it is all one great deception. There is nothing on this earth that is worth doing evil for. We have a godly inheritance – the Kingdom of Heaven. We are citizens of Heaven and must focus on things above as we fulfill our destinies on earth, looking forward to Heaven. Those who love this world are enemies of God and cannot please God. We are pilgrims and sojourners here traveling to Heaven. That is the right perspective and we must focus rightly.
Prior to the vision, I had spent the day and night in praise and worship, and meditation of scriptures, especially the good news of salvation, given to us by Jesus. In the middle of the night, I meditated on the scripture below, for a long time – more than three hours. Throughout the night, that Scripture was my companion and delight.
To Him wholoved usand washed us from our sins in His own blood,and has made us
kings and priests to His God and Father,to Him be glory and dominion forever and
Amen. Revelations 1, 5 – 7
While meditating on this scripture, I was saying in my heart,
“To Him wholoved meand has washed me from mysins in His own blood,be glory, praise, worship, honor and thanksgiving.”
While saying this, I fell into a trance.
In this vision, I was walking along a path and a song bubbled up from my spirit to my mind. The song is part of a popular hymn.
Angels of Jesus
Angels of light
Singing to welcome
The pilgrims of the night
As I started singing this song, I immediately got scared and rejected the song. I said to myself, “ is this not the song that we used to sing at funerals when I was a child?” I refused to sing it and I kept going. After a while, that same song came up into my mind again, and as I started singing it, I remembered the same thing as before that it was a funeral song and refused to sing it.
Then I as walked further on, I was immediately caught up in the glory cloud of God with great force. I found myself high up in the heavens and then I saw them – thousands and thousands of glorious, beautiful angels descending from Heaven. They had wings.
Several times that I had seen Angels in the past, they did not have wings but few times that I saw them, they had wings. However, I had never seen them in thousands at the same time. I noticed that they were translucent and emitted light. A heavenly sweetness washed over me just at the sight of them, and I was filled with joy. Then I kept going up into the heavens and at a point I thought to myself, “maybe I’m dying and never going back to earth.” At that thought, I became uncomfortable with going further into the heavens. Then I came out of the vision.
The song is not a funeral song but some humans turned it to one. God was trying to speak to me through the song but my limited human mind could not understand. He wanted to show me His beautiful Angels!
Angels are real! God is real and heaven is real – Glory to God!
Things to consider
It is important to note that in my prayer time, I was rejoicing in Christ, and I was thanking and praising God, for His mighty and great salvation.
Faith, praise, worship, and thanksgiving were all present. That is what God loves.
May God help us to worship Him always, with praise, thanksgiving and gratitude, even as we present our requests to Him, and obey Him.
In this vision, I saw two beautiful young girls talking with each other. I interrupted them as I joined them and sat beside them. I said to them, “you don’t need to be transported physically to visit that place, you can visit there spiritually. I blew on one of the girls, with air expelled out of my mouth and she was gone. She was sitting down on her chair transfixed and her eyes were open and blank without movement. She was no longer with us because her spirit had travelled. She was in a state of rapture. She came back after a few minutes and was full of smiles.
“Where were you?” I asked her.
She replied, “I was in Heaven and was being clothed in blue and white robes.” I smiled and said to her in excitement and joy, “anyone can visit heaven when the glory of God comes upon them.”
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
This girl’s spirit had an encounter with glory and heaven. I do not know her physically but the Lord is transforming her. The Lord wants us to know that Heaven is not a far away place. It is just a heartbeat away. He wants us to visit Heaven in the Spirit. The more we are in contact with the glory of God and Heaven, the more transformed we will be. It is the glory coming from the presence of the Lord that transforms us from glory to glory.
May you be transformed from glory to glory in Jesus name.
I wrote about spiritual journeys yesterday and last night from midnight to early hours of the morning, as I was worshiping, the Lord began to give me more visions on spiritual journeys. I have noticed that sometimes, it is what I meditate upon that the Lord uses to give me revelations.
Sometimes, He would tell me what to meditate on or pray for. He would say, “meditate about heaven, pray to me to see heaven, or pray to see me.” If I meditate about Him, He would reveal more of Himself. He wants our hearts and minds to delight in Him and think about Him, His ways, words and His works. We should not meditate about demons and demonic activities. They will only create fear, open doors to bad dreams and deplete your aura and spirit.
The Bus With True Believers
In this vision I saw myself running up a platform to enter a waiting train that would leave at any moment. I jumped into the train very happy that I did not miss it. As I strolled down the aisle of this very beautiful train, I struggled to go to the front seat of the train. I wanted to see the scenery very well. The front seats were occupied, so I sat on the row behind the front seat. I gazed out of the window and there were beautiful long buses flying past me.
The Children At The Refreshment Centre
I gazed at the long beautiful buses all flying past my wondering, bewildered eyes – they were all heading to somewhere.They are much more beautiful in size and appearance than the physical buses – they were very long.
They had the number of kilometers of their destinations written on the sides of the exquisite buses. I read and saw that the number of kilometers was so big that I wondered how a bus could travel that distance. In the physical world, it was not possible. That was when I remembered that I was in a vision in the spiritual world.
As I gazed at the number of kilometers, I realized that the buses were headed towards a spiritual destination- heaven. The train stopped, and I found myself on a bus. The bus was a bus that had believers and there were no children on the bus. Some believers had covered their hair with scarves and some did not. They were all dressed modestly. I sat quietly like every other passenger. I liked the look on their faces.
We travelled and got to a stop for rest and refreshments. The place was so beautiful and I found myself in a section of that refreshment center that had many children. I did not know these children physically but I recognized only one child that I know physically. That refreshment center was so big and beautiful with exquisite ultra modern structures better than most structures on earth. I looked out of the window of the refreshment center and saw a glorious modern scenery with water fountains.
The water from the fountain was purple in color, and I immediately thought that we were in heaven, but as I looked around, I realized that we were not in heaven. Heaven is much more glorious and beautiful than that. I looked up at the sky, and the cloud was purple. That was the presence of the Lord.
I knew that to get into heaven, we would have to pierce through those purple clouds to get to the Kingdom above. As I looked at the fountain again, the water changed back to normal water color. It was no longer purple. It seemed that the purple color had come from the purple cloud in the sky.
As I looked, some of the children at the refreshment center where I was, ran to me in excitement. I asked them, “What are you all doing here?” They replied,”we are on our way to heaven.” And as I wondered about them and their words they continued, “All children go to heaven.” They were all little children, so I believe that they were talking about little children. I was talking with three of the children. The children looked out of the window and saw the beautiful scenery and asked, “ Are we already in heaven?” They had become confused because of the lovely sight.
I replied, “no, but we are on our way there.” After a while, it was time for everyone to go back into their buses. Remember that I was in the section that had only children. The children started going through their gate to get to their own buses. I followed them and said to them, “when you get to Heaven, tell Jesus about me. Tell Him to remember my case.”
They said they would. Then I gave my full name to them. One of the children said my middle name and last name and another child said my first name and last name, but I strongly objected and said my full name to them again. I insisted that they must get my full name right and they did. They said the full name and I was glad. “Use my full name when you tell Jesus about me.”
Then they entered their gate and I started entering their gate with them and they asked, “have you forgotten that this gate is for the children’s buses only? You cannot go beyond this point.” I realized that they were right. I could not get into their gate or enter their buses. Then I came out of the vision.
Brethren, we are all on a spiritual journey. We are pilgrims on earth traveling towards Heaven.” We are all also traveling to a place of spiritual maturity, rest and glory even while still on earth. We can dwell in glory and in Heaven even while living on earth. The Kingdom of Heaven is within us. May we never forget that. May God’s grace lead us into His glorious manifest presence.
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14 NKJV)
This Scripture tells us to pursue peace and holiness. Can you imagine how this world would be if everyone living on the surface of this earth was pursuing holiness and peace. The earth would be a very peaceful and loving place.
Can you imagine if we all love one another and no one, tribe or race is trying to take advantage of others. If there were no predators, beneficiaries and victims. Just imagine how this world would have been. Man’s lawlessness, immorality, greed and wickedness is what has impaired the earth and hijacked man’s destiny.
The nations were angry, and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your people who revere your name, both great and small– and for destroying those who destroy the earth.” Revelation 11:18
Thankfully, there is another day. There is another day for believers in heaven where those who have religiously perverted and impaired the earth will not have the opportunity to break in and pollute.
May we not forget that our destination is heaven regardless of our trials and difficulties here on earth. May we all look forward to that glorious day in heaven.
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, (Matthew 6:19 ESV)
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6:20 – 6:21 ESV)
This word instructs us to lay up our treasures in heaven where there is no destruction, decay, rust, armed robbery, riot and disorder. When we lay up our treasures in heaven, we are safe and our treasures are safe, however, nothing is safe on this earth. Not life, not possessions – nothing at all. There will always be a day when we will leave this earth for eternity and there will be no second chance. Those who refused to lay treasures in heaven when they lived on earth will regret and the lost will weep bitterly.
It is better for us to embrace this wisdom now and start living like pilgrims, sojourners, travelers and aliens here on earth. Our citizenship is in heaven and we must begin to behave it. No more hate and madness but love and pleasing God.
Whenever I see people quarreling over politics I simply smile and say, “ the reason you are obsessed with politics is because your hope is here on earth. All your joy, treasure, hope and faith is in this life and what it can provide that is why you hate and quarrel with anyone who has a political opinion that is contrary to yours.”
There is no need for Christians to be bothered even if they are on the receiving end of political, racial, tribal and ideological hate. Stop trying to reason with people who have no hope and have laid all their treasures here on earth supporting all sorts of abominations and perversions. Your treasure should be in heaven as you make it your aim to love everyone including your political, religious, racial, tribal and ideological opponents.
Lay up your treasures in heaven and be calm. Let the peace of God be with you and embrace His rest as you lay up your treasures in heaven and make it your aim to please God always. That is our high calling in Christ and we must not be found wanting.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always. Amen.
