Heaven

Bible study on Matthew 10

Posted on Updated on

 

  1. The 12 disciples of Jesus were introduced in Mathew 10.
  2. Why did Jesus choose 12 disciples, perhaps the tribes in Israel?
  3. Why were all the disciples’ male? The plausible reason is to avoid issues that may occur in mixing married or unmarried male and females together on His hectic missionary and evangelistic work. However, several other female disciples ministered to him
  4. Disciples of Jesus should preach the gospel, and the central message should be that of repentance and salvation. Sermons should be heaven focused (vs.7)And as ye go, preach, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

 

  1. Ministers of Christ are empowered to heal the sick and raise the dead (vs.8)Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead
  2. Ministers are empowered to cast out devils and deliver people from demonic oppression (vs.8), cast out devils
  3. Ministers should not commercialize the gospel or place a price tag on healing, deliverance, or salvation (vs.8)freely ye have received, freely give.
  4. Ministers should trust God to provide their wages- Verse 9 and 10 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
  5. Ministers should depend on God for financial provision (vs.9, 10) 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.

 

  1. Salvation is by informed consent. Ministers should not spread the gospel where they are not welcomed (vs.11)And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
  2. Ministers of the gospel should be wise and smart and avoid falling into traps of the ungodly (vs.16): be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
  3. Ministers of Christ should abstain from all evils, and be peaceful (vs.16)be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
  4. Ministers should be watchful and vigilant of haters of the gospel (vs.17)But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
  5. Ministers of the gospel should expect to be persecuted, hated by the ungodly (vs.22)And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

 

  1. Ministers should not confront persecutors of the gospel, but ‘flee’ from them (vs.23)But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
  2. Ministers of Christ should not be ashamed of the gospel (vs.33)But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
  3. Ministers should preach the gospel boldly and openly (vs.27)What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

 

  1. Your enemies will be blood relations– verse 36- And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
  2. Any Christian who does not minister Christ is akin to an infidel (vs.38)And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
  3. Those that support the Minister of the gospel shall be divinely rewarded (vs. 40, 41&42)40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

Bible study on Mathew 5: How to make heaven

Posted on

 

                                 Babatope Babalobi: + 2348035897435 babalobi@yahoo.com

Be ye therefore perfect, even as your father which is in heaven is perfect – Matthew 5 vs. 48

  1. Jesus listed various criteria for making heaven, and these include the poor in spirit- verse 5; pure in heart- verse 8; and those persecuted for righteousness- verse 10.
  2. Jesus also listed qualities of good Christian, which are meekness- verse 5; merciful- verse 7; and peacemakers- verse 9. How do you fit with these qualities?

 

  1. Jesus also symbolically describes Christians as the Salt of the earth- verse 13. Salt purifies, seasons, tastes, invaluable, cleanses, and heals. Are you a salt or one of the pollutants of the earth?

 

  1. Jesus also symbolically describes Christians as the Light of the world- verse 14. Light gives protection, peace, direction, clarification, dries wetness, provides energy, and clears our darkness. Are you a source of light to the world, or your work is reinforcing darkness in the world?

 

  1. Jesus also taught that he came not to abolish the mosaic old testament laws but to fulfil them. Verse 17. We need spiritual direction in interpreting the mosaic laws in the light of the new testament revelation that Jesus represents.

 

  1. You can’t make heaven by being religious. For instance, the Pharisees pay tithes religiously. You need to do pay more than tithes by faith not as a form of a tax, to fulfil rigorousness. Matthew 5 vs. 20 – For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

 

  1. Anger may deny some people a place in Heaven. Don’t be angry without a cause , and be quick to forgive.

Matthew 5 vs. 22 – But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

 

  1. Your prayers will not be answered unless you forgive those who have offended you- verse 23.

Vs 23-24: Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

 

 

  1. Abusive: Let no uncouth, insultive or abusive words come out of your mouth. Don’t curse, don’t abuse, don’t say you are a fool

Matthew 5 vs. 22 – But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

 

  1. As much as possible, avoid issues that will take you to Police station or the Court of law. Resolve issues amicably as soon as possible- verse25

25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

 

  1. Lust is adultery of the heart. If you lust in heart after a woman, you are in danger of losing heaven

Matthew 5 vs. 28 – But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

 

  1. Cut off from every ungodly relationships or friends-verse 29 and 30

29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell

30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

 

 

  1. Divorce not allowed unless on the basis of Adultery: If you divorce a man or woman unless on the ground of adultery, you have committed adultery

Matthew 5 vs. 32 – But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

 

  1. Integrity: Be straightforward. Be a man of integrity, Be a simple man.

Matthew 5 vs. 37 – But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

 

  1. Vengeance: Don’t take revenge- Matthew 5 vs. 40 – And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.

 

  1. Love your physical enemies- verse 44. We must understand the enemies Jesus is making reference to are physical enemies who offend you in day to day life rather than spiritual enemies described in Ephesians 6 vs 10. Love everyone, both friends and foes – Matthew 5 vs. 46 –

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

  1. The most important requirement for making heaven is perfection. Be perfect – Matthew 5 vs. 48 – Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

 

  1. Repent and be saved: Repent ye and be saved-Mathew 3 vs 2

Judas Iscariot: death of destiny

Posted on Updated on

Commentary on Matthew 27: The reward of sin

By Babatope Babalobi +2348035897435 babalobi@yahoo.com

 

One of the main lessons of Matthew 27 is that the reward of sin is destruction.

  1. Judas betrayed Jesus for thirty shekels of silver but didn’t live to enjoy the thirty shekels.
  2. Judas returned the thirty shekels to the Chief priest when he saw that Jesus was crucified.
  3. When you commit a sin you will not have peace of mind.
  4. Judas betrayed Jesus by collecting thirty shekels of silver from the chief priest but the chief priest in turn betrayed him by refusing to collect back the money when Judas sought to return it.
  5. When you commit sin, your conspirators will eventually betray you. The money satan gives us for forsaking Christ really belongs to God. Judas did not cast the money to the chief priest but to the temple. All monies come from God.

Image result

  1. Any money you receive illegally is blood money. The chief priest refused to put the money into the treasury because it was blood money (Matthew 27 vs. 6) – The chief priests picked up the coins and said, “It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money.”
  2. Ill-gotten wealth ends in destruction. Judas eventually hanged himself (Matthew 27 vs.5) – So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself.
  3. Judas like the other disciples should have ended up as an apostle, a saint, and the pillar of the church, but his destiny ended up on a tree because of the love of money. We now hear of Saint Peters Catholic Church, Saint James Anglican Church, Saint Mathews School, Saint Luke School..and several other monuments named after the disciples of Jesus. Have you ever heard of anything name after Saint Judas? Judas died a betrayer not a Saint, and his colorful destiny ended on a tree.

Commentary on Matthew 25: Are you an unprofitable servant?

By Babatope Babalobi +2348035897435 babalobi@yahoo.com

 

  1. 1. Every Christian has a divine assignment to win souls (Matthew 25 vs. 14) – “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them
  2. God has apportioned the soul winning according to everyones ability (Matthew 25 vs. 15) – To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey.

  2. Believers will be given positions of leadership and responsibility according to the number of souls they won on earth (Matthew 25 vs. 21) – “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

  4. Unprofitable servants, those that did not add value to the kingdom, those who wasted or buried their talents while on earth shall be rebuked by God and cast into hell (Matthew 25 vs. 30) – And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

Commentary on Matthew 23: Are you a Pharisee?

By Babatope Babalobi +2348035897435 babalobi@yahoo.com

 

Matt 23 vs. 2-32 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 So you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.

  1. The Pharisees didn’t obey the laws they give. They gave the laws and broke the laws; Jesus came to teach people not only to believe the law, but practice the law.

 

Matt 23 vs. 4 – They tie up heavy loads and put them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.

  1. Pharisees increased the burdens of the people. But Jesus came as a burden bearer and yoke breaker.

 

Matthew 23 vs. 5: “Everything they do is done for men to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long;

  1. Pharisees played to the gallery, sought self-glory and dressed flamboyantly to gain public attention. Jesus lived a life of piety, humility, and meekness while on earth.

Image result

Matthew 23 vs. 9And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.

  1. Pharisees encouraged people to look unto them rather than unto God, they took the glory that belonged to God by encouraging people to call and treat them as ‘father’. Whereas Jesus said there is only one father, which is God.

Matthew 23 vs.17 – You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred?

You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. 15 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are.

  1. Pharisees gathered members not souls. They gathered a crowd not a kingdom. They doubled the hurdles, sinner needed to overcome to enter heaven.

  1. Matthew 16 contains two key instructions for everyone aspiring to be a Christian and/or make heaven.
  2. The first instruction states the price every Christian has to pay. It stresses the necessity of sacrificial living, self-denial, and readiness to do the work of a missionary.

(Matthew 16 vs. 24):

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

 

This   means:

  1. Every Christian must be willing to forsake the desires of the world or flesh to become a true disciple.
  2. Every Christian must do the work of an evangelist spreading the gospel anywhere, to qualify as a true believer.

(Matthew 16 vs. 24):

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

 

  1. Jesus also announced that salvation is priceless, and primary. It is worthless attaining any status or position, accumulating any amount of fortune or wealth, acquiring the highest educational degree, or acquiring any form of physical assets, if at the end, your soul is not saved for heaven.

Prayer

  • I cut vanities from my life in Jesus name
  • My soul shall end up in heaven in Jesus name.

Mathew 5: Bible on how to get to heaven

Posted on Updated on

Be ye therefore perfect, even as your father which is in heaven is perfectMatthew 5 vs. 48

  1. Religiosity: You can’t make heaven by being religious. You need to be related to God by faith – Matthew 5 vs. 20 – For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
  2. Anger: Don’t be angry without a cause – Matthew 5 vs. 22But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
  3. Abusive: Let no uncouth, insultive or abusive words come out of your mouth. Don’t curse, don’t abuse, don’t say you are a fool – Matthew 5 vs. 22But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
  4. Lust: If you lust in heart after a woman, you are in danger of losing heaven – Matthew 5 vs. 28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
  1. Adultery: If you divorce a man or woman unless on the ground of adultery, you have committed adultery – Matthew 5 vs. 32But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
  2. Integrity: Be straightforward. Be a man of integrity – Matthew 5 vs. 37But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
  3. Vengeance: Don’t take revenge – Matthew 5 vs. 40And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
  4. Love everyone, both friends and foesMatthew 5 vs. 46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
  5. Be perfectMatthew 5 vs. 48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
  6. Repent and be saved: Repent ye and be saved-Mathew 3 vs 2

Qualifications to enter heaven

Posted on Updated on

 

Romans 3 vs. 23 – For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Revelation 21 vs. 27 – And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

  1. The Lord showed me vision of heaven few days ago.
  2. I saw people queuing at the gate of heaven desiring to enter heaven, and I also saw angelic gate keepers screening people into heaven.
  3. I noticed people on the queue were being asked just a simple question. I noticed people on the queue were being interrogated one by one. The answer to the question and response to the interrogation determines whether the person would be allowed to enter heaven or not.
  4. The simple question people were being asked is: Did you commit any sin on earth before you died that you did not confess or repent of? The issue the gatekeepers of heaven were interested in knowing is unconfessed sins the person committed while on earth.
  5. I was surprised people were not being asked how long they have been Christians, the denomination of church they attended, their role in the church, their race or parentage.
  6. The only question being asked by the gatekeepers is: What sins did you commit on earth that you did not confess before you died?
  7. I woke up and the Holy Spirit gave me a simple message that the qualification to heaven is not your denomination or church but righteousness and holiness. The only disqualification to heaven is unconfessed sin.

Prayers

  • I destroy the strongholds of sin in my life in Jesus name
  • Holy Spirit, separate me from sin in the Jesus name.
  • Holy spirit, prepare me for heaven in Jesus name

Sermon: Love of money root of all evils

Posted on

1 Timothy 6 vs 6-11

But godliness with contentment is great gain.

For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

What lessons can we learn from this scriptures?

  1. Success is knowing Christ. A successful man is the one that lives in holiness and is contended with what he has. (vs 6)
  2. Life without Christ is vain. All the wealth, status, positions, and money you are struggling to acquire, you will leave all behind the day you die. (vs7)
  3. Human needs are few. Once you have food to eat, clothes to wear, and a house to stay you should be happy and contended. (vs8)
  4. Love of money leads to sin. The desire to become rich leads people into sin (vs9).
  5. Love of money is a trap. Many fall into it as they struggle to possess it (vs9)
  6. Fools love money, Wiseman love Jesus (vs9).
  7. The love for money ends in bitterness of the soul, body and spirit (vs9)
  8. The love for money leads to destruction. (vs9)
  9. The love of money is the spirit of anti-Christ (vs9).
  10. All evils are caused by the love of money (vs10).
  11. Greed for money causes Christians to backslide. (vs10).
  12. The love for money ends in sorrows.
  13. Flee from greed, flee from the love for money.
  14. Run after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, and meekness.

Bible sermon on:Signs of rapture and second coming of Jesus

Posted on

Babatope Babalobi

Revelation 22 vs 12:  And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work.

The Holy Spirit showed me a revelation this morning. I was in the company of some colleagues and we reached the bank of a river.

The water was very black, dirty, and a muddy; a few of us including me said we can’t swim in the river because its dirty.

To my surprise, before I know what was happening, some of my colleagues jumped into the dirty river without caring its dirtiness, and started swimming.

I watched in amazement.

download (1)

Suddenly I looked up and saw the clouds gathering and I ran away from the river side in order not to be beaten by rain.

It soon started to rain and I looked back at my colleagues who were swimming, and was afraid they will be drown.

I managed to escape to a building, and was ushered to a banquet Hall. And I woke up.

The interpretation the Holy Spirit gave me about the dream is this…. people swimming in dirty river… Are people willingly indulging in sin despite knowing its consequences against the prosperity of their soul, spirit, and body.

The banquet hall I saw is the marriage supper of the lamb. (He brought me to the banqueting hall and his banner over me was love – Song of Solomon 2 vs 4)

I pray that we shall all hate and overcome sin, and be ushered into the marriage supper of the lamb at the last day, in Jesus name.

Why do we need to pray without ceasing?

Posted on

Pray without ceasing

1 Thessalonians 5:17King James Version (KJV). 17 Pray without ceasing

Why does God wants us to pray without ceasing or pray always?

1. You need to pray without ceasing because God wants to hear your voice. He created you to fellowship with Him, and He wants to hear your thoughts, challenges, plans, anxieties, and desires in prayer.


2. You need to pray without ceasing because the Holy Spirit wants to be involved in all your activities. The Holy Spirit is standing near you ready to give you wisdom, direction, and guidance. He knows the solutions to your problems before the problems occur. Prayer invites the Holy Spirit to intervene in your situation.
3. You need to pray without ceasing to overcome temptations that about all day. There are several wordly pleasures enticing us…illicit money and illicit sex, etc..You need to pray without ceasing to avoid falling into carnal lusts and sinful desires that knocks on the door of your heart without ceasing.
4. You need to pray without ceasing, because, Satan your adversary also goes around without ceasing, looking for who to devour. Satan distributes evils to people that fail to pray. Prayer wades off evils. If you wish to overcome tragedies, premature deaths, profitless handwork, nightmares, strange sicknesses, bareness, delayed marriage, etc you need to pray without ceasing

Prayers

Holy Spirit, teach me how to pray.
My prayer altar, receive fire in Jesus name

Essence of Christianity: What does it mean to follow Jesus?

Posted on

soul winning evangelism

Mark 1 vs 17: “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”

  1. The essence of Christianity is to primarily do the work of the Evangelist, every other thing becomes secondary.
  2. If you make yourself a follower of Christ, you should therefore be willing to trained by the Holy Spirit to bring others into following Christ.
  3. Following Jesus, without fishing for men is not an option, an act of disobedience, and may infact be a sin.
  4. Decide today not only to follow Jesus, but also to fish for men and women

I receive the grace to fish for the kingdom in Jesus name

Sermon: Return to God in repentance

Posted on

Mathew 26 vs 56: Then all the disciples left him….

Just as in the days of old, many believers have abandoned the gospel for the world.

1. Christians have left the Bible for Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram and other social media.

2. Christians have stopped fellowship with God in prayers, they are not fellowshipping with Television and Movies.

3. Christians especially our children have left the Bible and embraced the mobile phone with all its distractions.

4.  Christians have left the altar of prayer for the altar of gisting and gossips.

5. We have left the word of God  for the word of men, as we no longer abide by the scriptures.

6. The church has left soul winning for members winning.

7. The Church has left God worship for Pastor worship

8.  The Church has left preaching about holiness and salvation, to preaching about how members can turn to millionaires and billionaires overnight.

9. The Church has left demonstrating God’s love to building business empires.

10. The Church has left the word for the money.

The spirit of God is calling for repentance.  Pray that the Holy Spirit draws you to Him again.

Commentary on Mark 8 vs 36: How to make heaven

Posted on

  • For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? – Mark 8 vs 36

    By Babatope Babalobi

  1. What does it profit a man, to have mansions in Dubai, Caribbean Islands, Cape town, New York, London etc and end up not having a mansion in heaven, but in hell?
  2. What does it profit a man to be most powerful man like the President of the United States living in a white house, but end up living in burning furnace for eternity.
  3. What does it profit a man to spend his years in illicit sexual pleasures with a harem of women, and lose the everlasting pleasure of paradise?
  4. What does it profit the famed King Solomom to have have a thousand wives and concubines, and miss the marriage supper of the lamb?mark 8 vs 36
  5. What does it profit a man to be the richest man in his village, country, continent, or in the world, and not have riches in heaven?
  6. What does it profit a man to be an Emeritus Professor and a Nobel Prize winner, and yet end up in hell like other people the Bible describes a fools?
  7. What does it profit a man to be celebrated as the most prized footballer in the world, and end up being tossed up and down like a ball in hell?
  8. What does it profit a man to be celebrated as the King or Queen of Pop or Reggae, to be described as an International superstar, winning several Oscars and Hollywood awards, but miss the prize of spending eternity with God in heaven.
  9. What does it profit a man to travel the whole world on tourism, and end up travelling to hell at death?
  10. What does it profit a man to live and die in sin and unbelief,  not guaranteeing a place for himself in eternity with Jesus!
  11. Repent now and be saved

Making heaven: How to go to heaven

Posted on Updated on

 It is war to get to Heaven. If you patronize your flesh regularly, you will terminate your heavenly race on earth
 
Memorise: “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier” (2 Tim 2:4)

Read: Jude 5-7

One person whose heavenly race was terminated as a result of worldly weights was Lot’s wife. She was one person who obtained mercy from God but still missed it. Lot’s uncle – Abraham interceded for them. God sent angels to the town they resided, and ensured that they passed by the front of Lot’s house.God arranged everything for Lot to see and recognize the divine visitors. In spite of these efforts, they were dragging their feet and so the angels grabbed them by the hand and forced them out. The angels thought at least they had saved four souls. But then Mrs. Lot remembered her gold, diamond and trinkets in Sodom which she could not take with her. Her attachment to them was so strong. Their control over her was so overbearing.making heaven

How could she ever part with such precious treasures? Heaven was pulling her on one hand but the pull of worldly things was stronger. The stronger pull must prevail. Eventually, worldly weights got a better part of her. She took one last look and was lost forever!

“No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier” (2 Tim 2:4). It is war to get to Heaven. If you patronize your flesh regularly, you will terminate your heavenly race on earth. Lot’s wife looked back. That was not her first time.

She did it several times before and she got away with it. She thought doing it one more time was harmless. Little did she know there was a looking back that could totally damn the looker forever. Have you been compromising with sinful colleagues in the office or at school? Have you been lying and getting away with your lies? Have you been fornicating and have never been caught? Have you become so bold and comfortable stealing church money because you have never been caught?

Beware! Your last time is coming and you cannot escape it except you totally repent and turn a new leaf. Lot’s wife looked back and she lost both ways – she did not receive her treasures in Sodom and she did not escape God’s judgement. In the end, the compromisers become double losers. Are worldly pleasures pulling you so strongly to hell? Ask God for grace to break away.

While some faithfully serve God and become double winners, others play smart with God and lose on earth and in Heaven. Your actions today will determine your placement.

Bible sermons on who will be saved

Posted on Updated on

Acts 4 vs. 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

1.     Believe in God alone cannot save any man, after all Satan also knows there is God but refuses to serve him.

2.     You must believe in the true God, and also believe in the person He has appointed as the savior of all men- Jesus.

3.     If you practice a religion that believes in God, but does not believe in Jesus, then you are not saved
