Topic: Qualification For Heaven
Text: John 3: 3; Isaiah 35: 8; Psalm 15
Heaven being the abode of the Almighty God has standards which must be met before anyone can enter into it. Everyone of us desire to make Heaven. Some people will be disqualified for not meeting up with the standards or qualification for entering into Heaven.
All the people listening to my messages all over the world must endeavour to qualify in order to make Heaven at last.
SOME POINTS TO CONSIDER.
1. THE QUALIFICATION FOR HEAVEN EXPLAINED:
Heaven being the spiritual home of the Righteous and of God our Father, the Son and Holyghost, the Trinity and his Angels cannot be inherited by flesh and blood.
1 Corinthians 15: 50
Take note, flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.
Anybody that wants to be in the kingdom of heaven at the end of this life must be Born-again.
Such a person must have the spirit of God through regeneration, through salvation. Anybody that is born of man and woman is in the flesh and is spiritually dead because of the transgression of Adam.
Romans 3: 23
Everyone born of man and woman has sinned because of the sin of Adam.
Romans 5: 14
I want you to understand that through the sin of Adam, everyone became a Sinner. As a result are subject to sin and cannot please God. Infact all that are born of man and woman are Sinners and are subject to sin and such people cannot please God.
Romans 8: 8
For mortal humans to qualify for heaven, they must be Born-again by the Spirit of God, spirit of holiness and righteousness in order to live a holy life and make heaven at last.
Romans 5: 17-21
It is very clear that if we must enter into the kingdom of God, we must transformed by the Spirit of Jesus Christ and become a new person.
2 Corinthians 5: 17
When you give your life to Jesus you receive the Spirit of Jesus Christ, spirit of holiness and righteousness. As a result,, you live in newness of life. You become a spiritual person, spiritually alive, quickened by the spirit of Jesus Christ.
Once the works of the flesh are destroyed by our Lord Jesus Christ in our hearts, we shall receive power to live right and live above sin.
1 John 3: 8-10
It is very clear that once you are Born-again, once you have received Jesus Christ as your new birth, you are quickened to live righteous life by the Spirit of God, by the grace of God.
1 John 5: 18
Once you are Born-again, you go on to live righteous life, you go on to live newness of life. You will live according to the will of God. As a result you will receive power to do the will of God and make heaven at last.
John 1: 12
As many that receive Jesus Christ, they receive power of sonship and with that power, will maintain holiness. Then we shall be qualified to make heaven at last.
Whosoever that will maintain a clean life, righteous life, holy life, that person will surely make heaven at last. That person can never be pushed out of the way.
If you therefore go on to maintain the new birth, when the trumpet shall sound, when you drop your body, you shall be qualified to make heaven at last.
2. THE REASONS:
God has declared that he is holy as well as his abode and there is nothing defiled that can enter into the kingdom of God.
1 Peter 1: 15 & 16
Take note, God is holy and for anyone to enter the kingdom of heaven, that person must be holy. Without holiness, no eyes shall see the Lord.
Hebrews 12: 14
Everyone who wishes to make heaven must understand that God is holy and for you to enter the kingdom of God, you must be holy and for you to be holy, you must have peace with One another. Infact you must have peace with all men and then you will be able to maintain holiness. When this holiness is achieved, you will be qualified to enter the abode of God, which is full of holiness, God the Father, the Son, and Holyghost with the Angels.
Take note that nothing defiled or worketh abomination will enter the kingdom of God.
Revelations 21: 27
Only those who are washed in the blood of Jesus, who maintain holiness, whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life, shall make heaven.
1 Corinthians 15: 40 & 50 -54
If anybody must enter heaven, that person must transform to put on celestial body. Flesh and blood is of the earth and cannot enter the kingdom of God. It is the spiritual man that is redeemed. It is the celestial body that we will use to enter the kingdom of heaven.
When we are transformed, we will put on celestial body and then enter heaven to live with God forever and ever.
Human beings are subject to sin by reason of their depraved nature and whosoever that continues in sin can neither please God nor enter the kingdom of heaven. This is why we must transform to become spiritual because flesh and blood is prone to sin. For us to enter heaven, we must be regenerated because anyone who is not regenerated is subject to sin. Such a person can never please God.
Romans 8: 8
As long as a person is not yet Born-again, that person is in the flesh. That person is carnal and can never please God. Even when the person wants to do something right, because of the flesh, he is unable to do right.
We must be qualified to be in heaven by regeneration or being Born-again. Everyone must be Born-again because flesh and blood cannot please God.
John 3: 3 & 7
Everyone that is Born-again must become spiritual and go on to do the will of God in righteousness. It is then that they will make heaven at last.
C. OUR RESPONSE AND THE BENEFITS
Knowing fully well that we are separated from God through Adam’s transgressions and that we are Sinners, we must return to God through genuine salvation. As we confess our sins and repent, turn away from them and surrender our lives to Jesus Christ, receive forgiveness for our sins and the power to become children of God and go on to live right, we shall be co-inheritors and partakers of Christ righteousness.
Take note that without the power of Christ, no matter what you do outside Christ, your holiness can never be accepted. Your righteousness shall be as an unclean thing. You are righteous by your acceptance of Christ and receiving the power of sonship.
This is the time you can produce fruit of righteousness. You must be Born-again and maintain righteousness in Christ in order to make heaven at last, to be qualified.
Matthew 6: 33
How do you get the kingdom? How do you seek the righteousness? It is through Jesus Christ. When it happens, I am assuring you, whatever you need in this life and in heaven above, it will be supplied to you.
Philipians 4: 19
I want you to understand that once you are in Christ, honestly God will supply all your needs. He will supply you divine fruit, divine nature. God will supply all that you need to live a Christian life. Note that without the Spirit of God, you cannot bear the fruits of the spirit. Once you are in Christ, you will bear fruits which the Spirit of God supplies; fruit of love, righteousness, humility, gentleness, meekness, fear of God, When this is being supplied to you and you work therein, I am assuring you, you will be qualified for Heaven.
Beyond the aforementioned, whatever you need in life, materially, financially, physically, I am assuring you, the Lord will supply them.
Abide in the Lord and go on to live a life of holiness. As long as you are in the Lord, you will bear much fruits.
John 15: 4-6
The Lord is the vine. If you want bear fruits and live a righteous life, it is only upon the foundation which God has laid and that is Jesus Christ. If you are not on this foundation, you will fall. If is is by your power, if it is by your human wisdom, you will fall. That is building on a sinking foundation.
However if you are properly fitted in Christ through the new birth, you are on the highway of holiness. Heaven shall ne your portion.
Let us remain in him. You see all these people that sometimes they move away from the fellowship, they move away from Christ and the Church, all such people are taking a lot of risk as their own righteousness will lead them to destruction.
Without Christ we can do nothing.
1 Corinthians 15: 10
I am believing that everyone of you hearing me will be qualified for heaven. Everyone of you hearing me, you will abide in the highway of holiness which is Jesus Christ the Righteous. As you do, I am assuring you, heaven at last shall be our portion in Jesus name.
In conclusion, it is important that you search your life. Are you Born-again? Are you not struggling as a Christian and why are you struggling? Where is the place of the Holy Spirit? Are you not thinking it is by your power? Are you not thinking that it is impossible to make it? My friend, you must be Born-again.
What you need to do, is to repent of your sins. Promise God that all the evil you have done in times past, you will do them no more. Confess them and renounce them, promise God you will not return to that sin.
Jesus the Righteous, Jesus the highway of holiness died for you. He laid the foundation. He was buried and on the third day, he rose again for your justification. Jesus Christ laid a solid foundation. I want to let you know, as you believe it and invite Jesus Christ into your life as your Lord and personal Saviour, I am assuring you, salvation shall be yours and today, you shall receive that power that will keep you to the end in Jesus name.
What is it that you have done since you claimed to be Born-again and you went on to live a life of unrighteousness, to live your own way and will? Those things, you must confess them today, to be qualified for heaven.
Confess your sins and accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and personal Saviour.
1 Corinthians 6: 9; Romans 3:23; 1 John 3: 8 & 9; 1 John 5: 17a; Isaiah 59: 1;
Unbelief is sin. Selfishness is sin; Covetousness is sin, Insincerity is sin; backbiting, murmuring, speaking evil of others, these are terrible sin.
Going to native doctors, going for divination and palm reading, all that is terrible wickedness. No child of God does that. If you into stealing, any form of stealing; stealing from Government, stealing from companies and individuals, that is sin. Amend your ways.
If you are there and you are involved into armed robbery, duping people, do not bring such money to this Church.
If you are among those people that are involved in fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, abortion, that is terrible wickedness.
Fighting and quarreling, smoking and drunkenness all these are evil. Ask for the mercy of God.
Are you into fighting and quarreling? Are you disobedient to your husband or you are beating your wife, that is sin.
Matthew 19: 4 Are you into polygamous marriage or you have sent away your wife or you moved away from your husband, that is sin. Are you a woman dressing like a man or a man dressing like a woman, all that is sin.
Are you among those that take snuff, take cigarette and banned substances, that is sin.
All these people that bleach their body and turn yellow over night, that is sin.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
