Heavenly Treasures

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.

No More Pain – A Place Called 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.

A New Day

Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, (1 Peter 2:11 NKJV)

This Scripture reminds us that we are sojourners and pilgrims on journeys to the promised land. Heaven is our promised land and our glorious hope. That hope should be enough to dilute all our disappointments and temporary pains. We need to learn how to think in line with the Scriptures.

To die is gain and to live is Christ. Philippians 1:21

So right here, we keep living for Christ with joy and happiness knowing without doubt that Heaven is our reward. We never look at death with terror and finality because there is a glorious new beginning in the Land of lights. There is a new day and a Heavenly Jerusalem Church.

May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.

Reserved In Heaven

To an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, (1 Peter 1:4 NKJV)

Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. Luke 10:20

We have a glorious and godly inheritance that is reserved for us in Heaven. Isn’t that a great and glorious news? Regardless all the madness that goes on here – the persecutions, tribulations, trials and challenges, one day we will truly experience the raw and tangible love of God in an unveiled way. Right now, on earth, we only see dimly but one day we will see our saviour face to face and He will wipe away our tears.

Beloved, cling to God tightly without looking at your circumstances. Focus on the unseen and rejoice because your names are written in Heaven.

See, we have a glorious inheritance, so rejoice!

The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. Psalm 16:6

May great grace be upon us in Jesus name

The Greatest In The Kingdom Of Heaven

“Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:4 NKJV)

It is only our level of humility that will determine the level of grace that we will operate in. Humility leads to all sorts of good fruits like prayer, worship, thanksgiving, praise, petition, respect, love and reverence for God.

Humility makes us obedient and absolutely dependent on God’s word and power. Moses was the humblest man of his time and Jesus was gentle and humble in Spirit. Today, they are great in the Kingdom of God. It is only our level of humility that will determine our position in the Kingdom of Heaven. May we humble ourselves before our great God, and fellow humans, today and always.

Our Beautifier And Refiner

(Jude 1_24 ESV)

Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, (Jude 1:24 ESV)

This is a precious promise for those who desire it. Glory to God! God can keep us from stumbling and present us blameless before His presence. We do not need to fret and depend on ourselves or the flesh. By the arm of flesh no man will prevail. As long as we look up to God for grace and help and depend on Him for purity, He will polish, refine and beautify us with His magnificent, extraordinary and extravagant grace. He will present us blameless before the throne of grace and boast with us the way He boasted about Job with pride. God himself called Job “ blameless.”

Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” Job 1:8

May we always look up to Him who is the author and finisher of our faith. He started this work of grace in us and He will finish it and also preserve us unto His heavenly kingdom. To God be the glory!

Our Expectation

For the needy shall not always be forgotten; The expectation of the poor shall not perish forever. (Psalm 9:18 NKJV)

May God, the source of hope, fill you with all joy and peace by means of your faith in him, so that your hope will continue to grow by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Our expectation is our hope. This Scripture clearly promises that our expectation will not perish so we must hang in there without wavering or shaking. Hope is so precious that when it is deferred it makes the heart sick (Proverbs 13:12).

We must put on expectation as we go into prayer to ask God for grace and blessings. Abraham had expectation because he kept believing that the promise of God for Him would come to pass.

Perished expectation means that we do not trust God or have faith in Him. It signifies defeat and discouragement. However, our expectations will not perish – we will receive them in Jesus Name.

However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:20

It is only the Holy Spirit that gives hope and increases the hope in us. May we be filled with hope and never give in to despair or hopelessness. May we cling to the hope that we have for what we are expecting God to do for us. Most especially, may we always put on the hope of salvation and rejoice because of our final home in the city of wonders – Heaven.

Broken Wings

You were a very beautiful bird

Free to fly and constantly flying.

Beautiful and graceful,

Gentle and tender.

 

You delighted in golden mountains

And blue rivers.

You drank from silver brooks

And Heaven’s springs

One day,

While you were asleep,

A snake sneaked into your room

And mercilessly broke your wings.

 

You woke up

Unaware of your calamity,

You flapped your silver wings

To fly,

And you couldn’t.

You looked at your side

And realized that your wings were

Broken.

You were overcome with grief

And wept bitterly.

You were inconsolable in your loss.

 

After a while,

You picked up courage

And struggled to fly again

But you couldn’t.

Confused and ashamed,

You ran into a grave

And hid yourself

To mourn your loss.

The pit became your home.

 

One hut afternoon

In summer,

You came out of your grave

To try again.

 

You looked left and right

To make sure you were alone.

You stood upon the earth,

and walked to an apple tree with shaky legs.

Under the apple tree,

You struggled to fly again.

 

As I watched you struggle and try to fly,

I was overcome by

My love and compassion

And I came down from my throne.

 

I carried you on my own wings, to the top

Of your favorite mountain.

And we talked for for months.

There I fed you with love and mercy

And I taught you

Great and powerful mysteries of love.

 

Most especially, I thought you how to

cling to my good news,

rejoice in my salvation and celebrate my redemption.

And you fell deeply in love

With me – Your teacher and redeemer.

 

When I saw that your love

Was very pure and acceptable,

I came upon you

And mended your broken wings and

Fixed it to perfection.

I crowned you with extraordinary grace.

 

Then I sat on my throne

And watched you fly.

You soared and soared,

Into the heavens and above the heavens.

You sang with the saints

And mingled with angels.

The inhabitants of Heaven

rejoiced with palm leaves and danced

For joy.

You were covered with diamond and gold

You became the most beautiful bird

My Cinderella.

 

I introduced you

To the highest echelons of society.

You wined and dined with princes

And lived your life in the rainbow

Of my afterglow – sparkling and shining.

 

I showed you off to all creation,

And I boasted with you

And delighted in you.

You are blessed Indeed,

O beloved princess of heaven!

 

How wonderful you are, O Lord

You have promised great things to

Your princes and princesses.

May we constantly

Trust you to mend our broken wings.

May we remain in constant fellowship with you until

We behold and experience your great glory.

Goodbye To You

 

 

Goodbye

To you

Darkness in my soul

You were the voice

That confused me

And misled me

 

Goodbye to you

The enemy of my soul

Once glamorous to my eyes

Now disgusting

And ugly

 

Goodbye to you

Worldly pleasures

For I now love another

And I am on the Holy mountain

With Him

 

Goodbye to you

Because I have surrendered

My love and dreams

To the great One.

On this Holy mountain

We feast daily

With saints and Angels

Here, love rules

And peace pervades

 

Welcome

Holy Spirit

My love and companion

Thank you

For heavenly visions

I pray that

All who long for Him

Get a taste of His glories

For nothing on earth

Compares to the Lord

And a fresh and constant feast

Of Him

Glorious Day

 

 

O what a glorious day

What a glorious morning

It will be

When the saints

Gather

At the marriage supper

Of the Lamb

 

 

O what a glorious day

When the saints

Behold the great city

Of God

Adorned with

Precious stones!

 

 

 

O what a blessed sight

That will kiss

The eyes

Of the redeemed
