Thursday blessings 2 timothy 1 2


Have a Wonderful and Blessed Day!!! Heaven is Beautiful and Real!!!

Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Revelation 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Revelation 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

This chapter gives us a bit of a preview of what heaven looks like.
I never had a dream, or vision, or read it in the newspaper, I heard no voices or saw it on any Tele evangelists broadcast.

I got saved many years ago. I’ve not been perfect, many sins, many failures. I’ve done things before I got saved I ought to go to hell for. Sadly I have done things after I got saved I ought to go to hell for.
But after I got saved, heaven became more real to me. I learned of a place that we may not have to die to go there, that is if the rapture comes before we take our last breath. A place where everybody is happy. No arguing, no fighting, nobody mad at anybody. Just peace for evermore. It will be glorious and wonderful. No more sin, no wickedness.

Life on earth never seems to be fair or just. But even if we die before the rapture, there is a place where justice and righteousness rules. We will close our eyes here and open them with Jesus standing there.
I hope with a few words, to be able to encourage you about your Christian life. To set your eyes on a place Jesus has gone to prepare, just for the blood washed. Sure this place can be cruel, unfair, sad; but when we are saved and have a home in heaven waiting for us it is much easier to deal with the sadness, wickedness we experience here.
I’m not talking about a small place either, Heaven is a huge place.

Revelation 21:16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
Revelation 21:17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
Revelation 21:18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
Revelation 21:19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
Revelation 21:20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
Revelation 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
Revelation 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
Revelation 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

Heaven is a Holy Place;
Revelation 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Galatians 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Galatians 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

There is no sin in heaven. No murder, no fornication, no stealing, all these things will be no longer be in heaven.
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Romans 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Not everybody is going to heaven friends. Not everything that glitter is gold and not everything that shouts is going to heaven. Only those who are born again. The Lord even shows us in his word some will say “Lord I healed, got rid of devils in your name”, and He will say “I knew you not”.
Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

I’m not talking about somebody who turned over a new leaf, or somebody who signed a card or shook the preachers hand, or somebody who think they get there because Grand Pa was a deacon, or Grandma held a Ladies Bible Study!!! It is not a “Who we know acceptance”.

I’m talking about those who died out to sin, those who the Spirit of God put conviction in their hearts and they was so miserable with their sins they had to get saved or die. Only those who have had the New birth, those who have been made New Creatures by the power of God.
Christians today seems to have lost sight of holiness, because we’ve lost track of the eternal home awaiting us.

The Bible says, “The joy of the Lord is our strength” Nehemiah.
Aren’t you becoming overwhelmed of trying to comfort those who have lost a loved one? Or those whose home is about to fold up? Or trying to give peace to those dying with disease’s? I get tired of seeing people kept alive with machines and tubes and needles.

I am overwhelmed at the horrible wickedness in this world daily we see murders committed against the innocent, babies. Murder done by jealousy, envy, or just a plain wicked heart. Stealing done without a blink of an eye. Recently Walmart had a buy your old car seats, and get a $30. voucher now police and news are warning us to keep our cars locked because people are stealing car seats out of cars. How wonderful to know we will never have to worry about theft, murder, rape, harm to children will never take place in Heaven.

It’s going to be a wonderful place this place called heaven.
What are we going to do? What will we see? I’d like to take a sight seeing tour wouldn’t you?

I’d like to see the Book that has my name in it.
Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
Philippians 4:3 And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

God is sovereign friend, I want to see that Book

I’d like to see the Bottle that’s got our tears in it.

Psalm 56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
Psalm 56:5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
Psalm 56:6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
Psalm 56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.
Psalm 56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

There have been many of God’s people pour out their hearts to the Lord, many of God’s men have cried tears over the flock of the Father they are in charge of. He’s not a hireling, He loves God’s sheep. Many of Saints have shed tears because of sin, because of persecution. Do you think those tears were wasted? Not hardly.

Many of dear precious saints have wept, and cried over the problems of life. Homes where the devil has gotten in and broken up. God has those tears friends, they are not wasted.

I want to see the Bride Dressed for the Wedding.
Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

We may not look like much of a bride, but we are the bride of Christ. But this bride, I want to see her in all her glory, adorned for her husband.
Of all the beauty, of all the weddings down through time they must have been something to see.

Rebekah for Isaac, Ruth for Boaz, but nothing will compare to the bride adorned for Jesus Christ.

I want to see the Brother, and Sister I’ve never seen.
Mark 3:35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
Life’s trials will seem so small when we see Him.
You see we’ve gotten our eyes off that place, it’s another car, another CD, another dollar saved. A place on the river, another promotion.
Friend this world is not our home, so don’t focus on our earthly possessions, we’re headed out of here.
I not only want to see some things when I get there, I want to say some things over there too.

I want to Praise the Lamb of God.

Revelation 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

People need to get their mind off man and get it back on the beautiful Son of God.
People need to get warmed up over here, because we’re going to praise the Lamb of God over there.

It is something dying out in America today. Old time heart felt Praise. It’s all been but snuffed out by this emotional stuff going on today.
Christian Rock, Charismatic emotionalism, Folks had better get in that Book friend. When music gets your foot to tapping before it stirs your heart you better dump it.

I want to Sing in that Heavenly Choir.

Revelation 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
It’s going to be something when us the bride sing praises to Jesus on them streets of gold. Face to face with jesus we will sing out praises to him.

I don’t know how anybody is going to stay quiet over there. We’ve gotten to the place we’ve longed for, the place we’ve thought about. I think there will be praising and shouting going on.
No more Adversary, abortion, aggravation, agitation, annoyance, adultery. No more backache, bitterness, broken bones, broken homes, beer. No more Cancer, cemetery’s, confusions, crime, cussing, complaining, car wrecks, crutches.

No more Evil, enemies, eye glasses, no More Funerals, fears failings, fighting, fussing, feuding, no more fault findings.
No more Garbage dumps, good byes, gripes, guilt, no more Gore.
No more heart attacks, hospitals, high blood pressure. No more Insurance, Immorality, Idolatry, incest, insects.

No more jails, jealousy, killings, no more liars, liberal preachers, liquor. No more misunderstandings, mucus mosquitoes, no more newspapers, nastiness, nudity, no more needs.

No more sickness, sorrows, sweat, selfishness, shackin up, stealing, stupidity, no more sin no more.

Sometimes if you’re like me, I can’t wait to get there friend, Heaven is a real place. I want to see the people who have outstripped me and went on.
Heaven is real, no matter what any atheist tells us, no matter what anybody says.
Lets get the gospel out daily so others can see heaven too.
I’m satisfied with just a cottage below
A little silver and a little gold
But in that city, where the ransomed will shine
I want a gold one, that’s silver lined
I’ve got a mansion just over the hilltop
In that bright land where we’ll never grow old
And someday yonder, we’ll never more wander
But walk on streets that are purest gold
Though often tempted, tormented and tempted
And like the prophet my pillow is stone
And though I find here no permanent dwelling
I know he’ll give me a mansion my own
I’ve got a mansion just over the hilltop
In that bright land where we’ll never grow old
And someday yonder, we’ll never more wander
But walk on streets that are purest gold
Don’t think me poor Lord, deserted or lonely
I’m not discouraged, ’cause I’m heaven bound
I’m just a pilgrim in search of a city
I want a mansion, a harp, and a crown
I’ve got a mansion just over the hilltop
In that bright land where we’ll never grow old
And someday yonder, we will never more wander
But walk on streets that are purest gold

Love and Prayers
