DOMINION OVER DARKNESS (PART IX) HOW TO STAY RAPTURE READY
7b. The decisions you take on daily basis takes you closer to where you are going; whether heaven or hell. There is nothing like purgatory or intermediate place. The Bible says “And it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”. Heb. 9:27. The decision you take today can have far reaching impact on the destiny of your generations yet unborn. Always remind yourself that although you are in this world, you are a stranger, a pilgrim. This world is not your home, heaven is. Jesus said “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also”. John 14:2-3.
1 Pet. 2:11, “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul”. Col. 3:1-4 “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory”.
What you seek is what you attract, what you fix your eyes on is what you will eventually become. You can evaluate yourself; ask yourself “am I really heaven bound?” Your prayer request speaks volume about what you are pursuing. Heb. 11: 7, 15-16, 24-25 says, “By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season”.
Wisdom demands that you take these points very serious. Where are you going to spend eternity? What if the rapture happens now?
