There was a rich man in the city who had everything a man could ever have. He had wives and children. He had many houses and cars. He had much livestock. He grew old and died without knowing Me. He died and went down to the Dark-Planet. After some years, one of his children gave birth to him again. This is the lot of every man who fails to gain Heaven while alive. No matter how rich you are, you cannot buy your position in Heaven with money. You must work hard for it if you want to go there. Many people think it’s a gift for every man. You have free entrance if you give your life to My Son and the work of your hands is pure because only those with pure hearts and hands shall enter there. I Am the Almighty God. I Am the Creator. I Am Omnipotent God. I Am Omniscient God. I Am the Breeze that controls the universe. I Am a Holy Father. Sin is an abomination to Me.
All of you will wake up in the morning and go to your various place of work. You go out to look for your daily bread. Every life you live daily is an avenue for you to be judged because you call yourself a Christian. Every of your action shall be judged. Every single word that comes out of your mouth shall be judged. The very moment you give your life to Jesus Christ, your life is opened to spiritual judgement because you want to go to Heaven. Unless you only give your life to Him by mouth, without His light in your heart. As long you give your life to Him wholeheartedly, your life is opened to spiritual judgement automatically. Many of you serve Me in ignorance because you don’t know what it takes to enter Heaven. You think the kind of journey you’re on is shallow. You never know if it’s deep. It’s like judging the depth of a river with mere eyes without knowing its real depth. Many of you wanted to be a Christian because you thought it was a mere race. You had a wrong notion of Christianity. Christianity isn’t hard, but if your lifestyle is of the world, it will make the journey very hard for you.
As a Christian, if you’ve gained this Earth before you gave your life to My Son, you must give up everything you have. You must give up everything you have because your sin will be found in all your properties. When I called Abraham, he lost much livestock on the way because of his sin. He came out from the house of idolatry. While he was on the journey, I couldn’t rescue everything for him because the demons possessed almost everything. He lost many livestock and slaves. He endured everything along the journey. Today, all of you are enjoying the suffering of Abraham. That’s what it takes to work for the Kingdom of God. You cannot have things in your way and think you’ll live with them peacefully. You must forgo everything. After you’ve given your life to Jesus Christ, if some of your properties can still stand after your deliverance, then they will be yours. Many of you gave your life to Jesus Christ without passing through every necessary Ordinance. This Ordinance will determine how your journey will be afterwards. Some of you may be able to keep everything you’ve acquired before you gave your life to Jesus Christ, but only very few people fall into this category because all of you have dined and wined with Satan before coming to My Son. If you lived this kind of life, you must forgo everything before you can have peace. Through your confession, everything will come to the limelight.
Many of you want to serve Me, yet, you want to dictate for Me how to serve Me. It’s your choice to serve Me. I didn’t impose it on you. I don’t force anyone to come to Heaven. However, if you think that’s the best place for you to be, you must work for it in My own way, not in your own way. I Am the Owner of Heaven and Earth. I brought you here to live. But the kind of life you live here will determine where you’re going whenever you die. It’s not enough waking up and going to church every Sunday. It’s not enough calling yourself a Christian. You must allow people to see the water of Christianity in you. You must allow the light of Jesus Christ to overpower every darkness in you. This is the only way you can die and go to Heaven.
There are different kinds of races men race every day, but the race to Heaven is not common. Many roads lead to Hellfire, but only one road leads to Heaven, which is through Jesus Christ our Lord. The Bible says in the Book of Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate, and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” The road to Hellfire is very wide and spacious. Many people have chosen to walk this road because of its comfort, the comfort of living as they please. However, the road to Heaven is lonely, and it’s scanty as well because only very few people have chosen to walk this road because it involves a lot of hard work.
As a human being, you may choose to live and acquire much wealth as you want, yet, everything ends on this Earth. But if you’ve given your life to Jesus Christ, your orientation must also change. The Bible says in the Book of Matthew 6:19-21, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be.” The heart of a man will always be where his treasures are. If your treasures are stored on this Earth, your heart will always be here. But if your treasures are stored in Heaven, there your heart will also be. As a Christian, you must first gain Heaven before thinking of gaining the Earth. Until your seat in Heaven is cemented, this is the only way you can enjoy this Earth in peace.
Many Christians run different kinds of races every day, races to make ends meet. If you give your life to Jesus Christ genuinely, you don’t need to run after anything because He’ll be the One to run after everything for you. If Heaven is your priority, every other thing will fall into place. The Bible says in the Book of Matthew 6:33, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” If your attention is focused on Heaven, whatever you have here, which includes your wife, children, job, and properties, you’ll enjoy everything in peace. Nobody will trouble you because Heaven will watch over you and everything that belongs to you. Many Christians trouble and worry themselves every day because they’ve lost their focus. Until you maintain your position in the Father, this is the only way He’ll watch over everything you have. Though they’re yours, yet, they’re not yours because He gave them to you. And whatever the Father gives to you, nothing will trouble you and them. The church lacks this kind of wisdom. I pray for you today that the Holy Spirit will open your spiritual eyes to see where you slack so you can quickly turn back and amend your ways in Jesus' name. Amen! May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus' name.
