Jesus shows us the way to be in the world without being of it. When we model our lives on His, a new world will open up for us. The Kingdom of Heaven will be ours, and the earth today will be our inheritance. We will be comforted and have our fill; mercy will be shown to us.
Yes, we will be recognized as God’s children and truly see God, not just in an afterlife, but here and now: ““Blessed [inwardly peaceful] are the gentle [the kind-hearted], for they will inherit the earth… Blessed are those who are persecuted for doing that which is morally right, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven [both now and forever].” Matthew 5: 5, 10 That is the reward of modeling our lives on the life of Jesus!
We who are Christians must pray, read the bible and let our Lord lead us. Easy? No, for we are human and we have our thoughts and our feelings.
Walking in faith is not easy: we want the pleasures of the world at times, but turn away from that for it is not the way of Jesus. When we pray to our Lord, we find peace and contentment on earth NOW!
This world is not our home.
We will have a heavenly home one day – free of sin and violence.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT: ARE YOU READY TO GO?
There’s nothing wrong with retirement, but it only lasts a few decades at best.
You know that the death rate is 100 percent! You may also be discouraged and afraid of death and you want to know your purpose on earth or you are uncertain of your future. Maybe you’re skeptical about God and the afterlife or you’re not a Christian.
Most people, whether Christ-followers or not, have a horrible view of Heaven. At best it’s a cloudy, ethereal, disembodied, nonphysical experience—yeah, maybe with love, joy, and no suffering sprinkled in—but if we’re honest, we don’t really get excited about it. We can’t imagine actually liking it. At worst, people think of it as an endless, boring church service, singing songs you’re not excited about—forever! That sounds horrible!
“What have you done with your life?”
You may now at least begin to address the inevitable question, What have you done with your life to show God? . . . The question, like everything else proceeding from Him, has to do with love: How much have you loved with your life? Have you loved others as God loves you? Totally? Unconditionally?
The main reason many people (Christian or not) live materialistic, self-centered lifestyles is a poor view of the life to come. Some people still think Heaven will be boring. It’s really a no-brainer! The rewards to come are out of this world: Heaven is a beautiful, incredible dream world.
Are you prepared for life after death?
After presenting research combined with incisive commentary and critique, We asks this ultimate question: Its last breath here, next breath somewhere else! They can’t imagine Heaven, so they don’t live for it. But all the great heroes of faith “were looking for a better place, a heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them” Hebrews 11:16
What if heaven is better than our wildest dreams?
And what if how you live really does matter for the Life to come? That would change how we live, work, love, sacrifice—wouldn’t it? If there’s even a shadow of a chance that this is true, you had better find out—nothing is more important. It should even motivate you to read more of the Bible. The central theme of the Bible is that God wants a relationship of love with you and every person created.
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him” I Corinthians 2:9
“Thrones were set in place,and the Ancient (God the Father) of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow;
the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze. A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him.
Thousands upon thousands attended Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him.
The court was seated, and the books were opened. Daniel 7:9-10
When the books are opened, how will you plead? Please don’t say you haven’t been warned!
WHAT A PREDICTION!
In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a Son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into His presence. 14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and His kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.” Daniel 13-14 The Dead Sea Scrolls attest the prophet, Daniel predated Jesus’ birth by 150 to 350 years.
ONE FINAL THOUGHT
C.S. Lewis once said, “If you read history, you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next. . . . Aim at Heaven and you will get earth ‘thrown in’: aim at earth and you will get neither.” “
“Earth thrown in” means we want the pleasures of the world at times, but turn away from that for it is not the way of Jesus. When we pray to our Lord, we find peace and contentment on earth NOW! Try it and you will see!
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles. How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing. They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
