SUNDAY SERVICE 13/9/2020
Text: Mathew 19: 14-23, Luke 13:1
Topic: Who Will You Blame , If You Miss Heaven?
Heaven is the abode of God the father Son and the holy spirit. Heaven is the abode of the saints. Heaven is a holy place; eternal home of the righteous ( Revelation 21:14-27 ).
Heaven is holy, there is no pain no sorrow. Heaven is a joyful place, only those who did the ” Will” of the Father shall enter into it ( 1Corinthians chapter 6:9-10), so it is very clear that the unrighteous shall not enter into heaven, only the redeemed the ransomed of the Lord, those who pass through the high way which is Jesus Christ ( Isaiah 35:8-10 ), those who lived the life of Jesus Christ shall see heaven, so every child of God should aspire to see heaven. Those who are true believers and desiring to make heaven at last (Revelation 19:1).
So, in heaven the saints and the angels worship God from eternity to eternity. Heaven is a beautiful place, our eternal abode forever and ever. My prayer is that none of you shall miss heaven in Jesus name.
1: THE REASON AND THE POSSIBILITY OF MISSING HEAVEN.
This question becomes very necessary because many people has heard the gospel of Jesus and refuse to repent from their wicked ways. Many has refuse to listen to the word of God. They continue to wallow in wickedness; if such people miss heaven, who will they blame? (Luke chapter 13:1-4) .
So, if you are among them if you are still living a sinful lifestyle, Jesus Christ said, if you don’t repent, you shall likewise perish.
There is a possibility of one missing heaven ( Jeremiah chapter 3:12), so I want to let you know God is pleading to you to return. He said ” I will not keep my anger forever”; God is pleading with us. I want to let you know God has purchase us with the blood of Jesus, we are His people, if you refuse to repent now, after the rapture there will be no more mercy, no more grace and you will not have the ability to repent again. So, the time is now, if you hear this word and refuse to repent like Nebuchadnezzar who refuse to repent and God cast him into the bush where he was eating grass like animal ( Daniel 4: 30), who will you blame ?
That’s why God want you to recognise that it’s not by your power nor by your might, but by his spirit and his grace. The day you close your eyes to death you will hear, “but to you it was spoken”, who will you blame? so the grace is very much available now not after death.
(Daniel 5: 22-30).
The point is, there is possibility of missing heaven, after hearing this preaching and you refuse to repent.
Beware of hell , and the possibility of missing heaven is real, so examine yourself. You have to make sure that you are not in this church only for the things of this world. there’s a possibility of missing heaven; search your life (Mark 9:43).
Whatever that will make you to miss heaven, no matter how important that thing is, God said cut it off! You must not allow anyone to cause you to miss heaven. So take note, hellfire is real! It is better to enter into heaven with one hand or leg than having your whole body inside hell, God forbid !. (Revelation 21:8) I pray that hell will never be your portion in Jesus name.
So, take advantage of the preaching you’re hearing now (Luke 16;23-31). Take note, the rich man when he was on earth didn’t have time for God, and when he died he was cast into hell, and Lazarus went to heaven.
Do not be deceive by those people who tell you that they have a message from hell to you, just tell them to keep their message, if anyone go to hell there is no coming back! So, be careful if you miss heaven you will have no one to blame (Matthew 27:3). I want to let you know that there is a possibility of going to hell(John 6;66).Are you among them that are taking wrong decisions? if you miss heaven in that condition you will have no one to blame.
2: OUR EXPECTED RESPONDS AND THE DANGER OF HELLFIRE.
Everyone should be warned, if you miss heaven you will cry, if you miss heaven you will have no one to blame because the gospel has been preached to you and so many of you have testified that heaven is real. Do not be deceive because there’s nothing you can use for exchange of your soul, so do not allow anyone to make you backslide.
Now the question is, are you living a holy life? are you at peace with your fellow human ?if you’re not, repent because after death there’s no repentance. You don’t know what is going to happen in the next minute, so the time is now ( 2 corithian 6:22), take advantage now that rapture has not taken place . Repent now, not after death.
The danger of missing heaven is to be cast to hell the angel of hell will come after your death and carry you to hell fire. There’s no repentance after death, and in hell there is no joy , only pain, sorrow, weeping, anguish, gnashing of teeth forever and ever.
You will have no one to help you. My prayer is that everyone of you will repent and amend, so we all shall worship God in heaven forever and ever. If you’re a chosen remain steadfast and persevere! My prayer is that all of us will make heaven, because hell is a place of torment pain, sorrow and weeping, so as I round up, make up your mind that you will not go to hell in Jesus name.
For Sinners and Backsliders, confess your sins and accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and personal Saviour (Romans 3:23, 1 John 3: 8 & 9, 1 John 5: 17a, Isaiah 59: 1).
Sin is dangerous. It is destructive and yet almost the whole world has gone into sin.
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, stealing from Government, stealing from companies and individuals, that is sin.
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 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.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
