30 Days of Thanksgiving - Day 13

I am thankful for the assurance of Heaven.


"Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither."
 by C. S. Lewis

Revelation 21:1-4
“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and earth passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the Throne saying, ‘Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them. They will be his people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God. 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.’ He who was seated on the Throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’”

Revelation 22:3-5 
"And there shall no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His bond-servants shall serve Him; and they shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. And there shall no longer be any night; and they shall not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God shall illumine them; and they shall reign forever and ever."

Philippians 3:20-21 
"For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself."

WHAT WILL HEAVEN BE LIKE?
WE WILL LIVE IN NEW JERUSALEM - Revelation 21:2-3
WE WILL BE WITH CHRIST - Revelation 22:4
WE WILL NO LONGER SIN -Philippians 1:6
WE WILL NOT BE SUBJECT TO THE SAME LAWS OF PHYSICS - John 20:19,26 
WE WILL STILL EAT AND TOUCH - John 20:27, John 21:10-15
WE WILL NEVER BE SICK AGAIN - Revelation 21:4
WE WILL RECOGNIZE ONE ANOTHER -  Matthew 17:3
WE WILL HAVE DEEPER RELATIONSHIPS - Matthew 22:30
WE WILL LOVE AND REJOICE AND BE AT PEACE COMPLETELY!.

"When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be,
When we all see Jesus, we sing and shout the Victory."
I can't help but shout, HALLELUJAH!

THE WAY TO HEAVEN

John 14:6 
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me." 

John 3:16 
" For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life."


The way to Heaven is as easy as A-B-C:

Admit that you are a sinner and need forgiveness.
Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave to bring you to God.
Confess, through prayer, that Jesus Christ is the only way to God, and commit to live for Him the rest of your life.
  • God loves you and wants a personal relationship with you. "" (John 3:16 NIV)
  • Our sin keeps us from having a personal relationship with God. "" (Romans 3:23 NIV)
  • Jesus Christ is the only answer to this problem. He’s the only one who can bring us back to God. "" (1 Peter 3:18 NIV)
  • You must personally trust Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and determine to obey Him for the rest of your life. (John 1:12 NIV)

Read these words as a prayer to God and mean them in your heart:

Dear Lord Jesus,
I know I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the grave to give me life. I know You are the only way to God, so help me to quit disobeying You and to start living for You. Please forgive me, change my life, and make yourself real to me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Dear Heavenly Father, How thankful I am that I know that one day I will be spending Eternity with you!  How wonderful it will be to see Jesus face to face and to praise and thank Him, and Serve Him for all eternity.  What a great day that will be!  In Jesus Name, Amen

Have a Blessed Day,
