KEY SCRIPTURE: John 8:21 KJV “Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.”
After some moments of dialogue with the Jews, the Lord made it clear to them that He would be leaving this earth for a place where they can’t come. He used the word ‘my way” This means a place ordained for Him. To His audience, He said to them, you cannot come. There is a place that some people are certain and know that heaven is their destination. The Lord specifically told them you people cannot come there.
This discussions with the Jewish religious leaders established the fact that, one’s right to go to heaven or not depends on what he does with Jesus, during his lifetime.
DO NOT EXPECT SOME PRAYERS TO BE MADE AFTER YOUR DEATH TO SEND YOU TO HEAVEN.
Dear reader, I would like to narrate a story about a man of God whose wife died. I am talking about Smith Wigglesworth, the Apostle of faith. The wife died after she finished ministering in church. Evangelist Smith was not present at that meeting. The wife was confirmed dead. This man of God when he came to see the dead wife rebuked death to lose its hold over her and she came back to life. She woke up and told the husband she is at a glorious place and he must allow her to go. The Lord also spoke to Him, that the wife is now His. He prayed once again and she slept in death. Our scripture of consideration reveals, the Christian leaves this life and goes to be with the Lord. Philip 1:23 KJV” For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:”. Our Lord Jesus died, resurrected on the third day, and ascended into heaven after forty days of revealing Himself to the disciples. Dear child of God, you have a sure hope to be with Jesus when you finish your work here on earth.
To those who have not repented of their sins, Jesus said, you cannot come to where He is going. Where would you go then? THE FOLLOWING VERSE SHOWS YOU WHERE YOU WOULD BE Isa 5:14 KJV “Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.” Hell has enlarged its mouth ready for you. You can choose not to go there.
Please, do not take these things as fables, they are very true. If you cannot say for sure that you would go to where Jesus is, then today surrender your life to Him.
Dear Lord Jesus, you died to take away all my sins. I repent of my ways and declare my allegiance to you by asking you to take over my life. Fill me with the Holy Spirit. Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul.
THOUGHT: A DECISION FOR JESUS TODAY, WOULD SAVE YOU FROM AN ETERNITY OF SORROW AND SUFFERING.
