Children Of God Through Faith In Jesus: Revelation 21

Those who make it to heaven will wake up in paradise when they die. Their spirits will separate from their earthly bodies and ascend up to this place of love, joy, and peace. All things good dwell here, where no person is afflicted again because of sickness, pain, sorrow, or death. There will be much singing, dancing, laughter, and so much more. The word happiness comes to life the moment we open our eyes and experience the things that God has prepared for those who love Him. Concerning this most beautiful place, it is written, “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. 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. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.” (Revelation 21:4-6) Every person who is in paradise is God’s elect, which is His child.

Those who overcome the world and cling to God in this life instead are those who are saved. Therefore, they are called by the Father His sons and daughters. His inheritance has been extended from the Jews and to the gentiles through faith in Christ. However, there are types of people who did not live for God, who will be counted unworthy to enter heaven. These are those who feared to do God’s will, the unbelievers, murderers, whoremongers (porn watchers, homosexuals, those who have sex outside of marriage, and commit adultery) sorcerers (including Wicca, magic cards, and witchcraft), idolators (worshipping Mary, saints, and false gods), and all liars. It is written, “he that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:7,8) Truly, becoming a child of God comes through true faith in Jesus unto salvation.

Let us pray:
My Father, who art in heaven, I come to You in praise and honor. Thank You for calling me out from the darkness and into Your marvelous light. I would not be secure in the faith if Your ever-presence was not in my life. Truly, as You dwell in the Son, I have You and the Jesus in my life through the Holy Spirit. This is the protection I need to not give in to temptation and the evil forces of this world. Many people want to take me down because of my stance with You, God. I am firm in my beliefs that stem from the Bible, and I know that this will come with much resistance and persecution. I’ve already had a person recently look me up and find my address, in order to come over and beat me up. Sure, I was afraid for a while because of this threat, but it soon subsided. I don’t fear people who wish to harm the body, for doing that will only speed up my chances to be with You sooner than not. All I wish for, Lord, is to be with You in heaven. Death comes to all people, but it is a blessing to be saved and go to heaven, instead of hell. Surely, You could have sent me to hell, but instead, You rescued me, while breathing new life into my soul because of mercy. Thank You, Lord. I love You, God. Amen.
