Dear friends, Heaven is nearby, we all can live in it. The Kingdom of Heaven is like a country or city that people live in. God is its King. There will be no sorrow, weeping, sickness, or evil there, God will wipe away every tears. It will be like perfect Utopia- paradise. There will be no thieves, murders, liars there. There will be no abortions, aids, cancer, paedeafiles. But there will love, joy, righteousness and peace- people will love one another and appreciate each other. And God’s Presence will be there- Life Eternal.We all have been invited to enter into Heaven and become it’s citizens. One day the Kingdom of Heaven will fully invade and take over this earth and the kingdoms of man will become the Kingdoms of our God. And the dominion of God will judge the dominions of man.
But, who can enter?
‘Blessed are those who wash their robes so they can have access 32 to the tree of life and can enter into the city by the gates. 22:15 Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers 33 and the sexually immoral, and the murderers, and the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood! ‘ Revelation 22:14
Only those who are clean can enter. Clean is the ‘Visa’ to enter through the ‘customs’ and walk into the Kingdom of God.
God is the King of His Kingdom and,
1) He is The Perfect(Holy), Righteous King.
Therefore He hates wickedness, rebellion and evil.
This should alarm us because we have all ‘sinned’, which means that we have broken God’s Laws.
Let’s have a look at some of the 10 commandments and ask yourself these questions:
just ask yourself these following questions:
-Have I ever told a lie before? even a white lie, a fib? How many lies have I told this week? How many lies have I told this year? In my life?
The Word of God says that ‘all liars will have their part in the lake that burns with sulphur and brimstone… which is the second death.’ Revelation 21:8
– Have I ever stolen anything before – irrespective of its value? even a paper clip, pen, a few minutes of my boss’s time? What does that make me? a thief.
The Word of God says that ‘No thieves will inherit the Kingdom of God.’ 1 Corinthians 6:10
-Have a I ever looked at another person with lusts before? It’s not talking about admiring someone’s beauty but things like pornography. Jesus said that even if you looked at another person and had the sexual thought in your mind even before you commit the act, you have already committed adultery with her in your heart.
The Word of God say that ‘neither fornicators (sex before marriage), adulters (sex outside of marriage) will inherit God’s Kingdom.’ 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
-Have I ever used God’s Name, the Name of Jesus in vain before? like a swear or curse word? Isn’t it amazing, when something goes wrong, we don’t say ‘oh bhudda, oh mohammed’, and I wouldn’t want anyone to say that. But when someone steps on our toe, we blaspheme, curse the Name of the God that gave us life, he gave everything precious to us, and we curse His Name.
The Word of God says that ‘And he that blasphemes the Name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death…’ Levictus 24:16
As you can see every human being on this planet is guilty of high treason against the Living, All Righteous, Just God.
We are all liars, blasphemers, adulters, thieves in God’s sight. He will bring every thought, every word and works into judgment. One day we will have to give an account of our lives to Him.
2) He is The Just King.
Therefore He must punish all evildoers with the righteous judgment they deserve. A good government will punish criminals and therefore protect innocent people. The government of God will punishment all evildoers and won’t even allow them to enter His Country, His City.
We all deserve goto the Lake of burning sulphur for our crimes.
3) God is The merciful King. He offers Jesus to be the substitutionary sacrifice to pay for the punishment of our crimes.
Here’s the good news:
Imagine you are standing in court, and you are guilty of multiple serious crimes. All the evidence is presented against you, you are guilty and doomed. You owe 10Million dollar fine, and if you can’t pay that fine, you will have to goto solitary confinement for the rest of your life. You try to say to the judge, ‘I’m sorry for what I have done. I regret now. Please forgive me. I will be a good person now, I’ll give halve all money to the poor, I’ll devote my life to community service work for the next 3 years. Please let me go.’ (Now this is called ‘Repentance’. You feel sorry, regret for your sins and you want to change your life, start afresh, a new beginning.)
But repentance is not enough. The judge will say, ‘It’s good you feel sorry, but you still have to serve the sentence for what you justly deserve.’ (You see war criminals who have been caught decades later still have to serve their sentence. Time doesn’t change anything. And also the good works you do cannot outweigh your bad works- it cannot erase your punishment.)
And the judge is about to past the sentence on you, and someone you have never met before, burst into the courtroom and interrupts the judge, and says, ‘Wait!! I love this person!! I will pay the 10Million dollar fine for him so he can go free- be forgiven.’
Isn’t that good news! You look at the man in awe, but you cannot reject the offer, can you? Wouldn’t you be greatful to that man? and say to him, ‘I owe you my life sir, my life is yours, I’m your servant, do with me as you wish.’
This is exactly what happened, when God sent His Only Son, Jesus the Messiah, Fully God, to be born of a virgin by the Holy Spirit as prophesied by the prophets. He wasn’t born of the linearge of Adam and Eve, because when Adam and Even sinned, every human being was born with a evil nature and separate from God because of our crimes- man cannot know God or have friendship with Him because his sins have separated him from His God. But Jesus was born of a virgin- not of the linearge of Adam and Eve, He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, did not carry the sinful nature because He was fully God and fully Man- and perfectly kept the 10 commandments, lived a sinless life. He wasn’t less God just because He was in a human body, but he restrained his power.
He died on the cross, the death of a criminal, He took your punishment for all your crimes, past-present-future, so that God will forgive you all your sins at once.
He was buried.
And He rose again from the dead to give His Righteousness, His Perfect record, to make you right before God so that your past-present-future is now righteous before God. God sees you as He sees His Son Jesus. He sees you as if you have always perfectly obeyed Him, is obeying Him right now, and is will always obey Him until the end. He did this so that you can become a child of God and He can become your Heavenly Father and you can enter His Family!
So how can one enter the Kingdom of Heaven?
You must enter heaven as a new creation, a new person who has no past-present-future sins, a perfect person.
The bible calls that being ‘born again’ or ‘born from above’.
To be born again you must:
1) Repent. Be sorry the wrong things you’ve done, that you have broken God’s heart and hurt so many people. Realise that you cannot save yourself by ‘trying to be a good person’. Turn away from your self-righteousness. Repentance is an deep inward change of mind that results in a change of heart and a change of direction. It is a change of mind about sin/rebellion/wickedness, about the law/self-righteousness, about Jesus and God.
2) Believe. Believe in your heart that the Lord Jesus died for your crimes, and rose again from the dead to give you His Righteousness.
Would you like to do that right now?
Talk to God right now out loud from your heart, in your own words,
“Lord Jesus, I confess you to be my King, and that you died and rose again from the dead so that I can enter your Kingdom. Thankyou for becoming my Father and now I’m your child. So be it.’
If you have prayed that prayer and meant it, then congratulations! You have a secure place in heaven and you have everlasting life and you will never loose it! Jesus said He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Jesus saves and Jesus heals today!!!
