I believe this is the time in history to start praying for all kinds of spiritual favours and you will more likely to receive them than in any other time of history so far. I am hearing more and more reports of what heaven is like from those who have been blessed enough to go there. I am personally being revealed more and more about the true character of God as times goes on. I certainly don’t believe I am the only one, just look around and you will find out quick smart what God is doing with His people. God is pouring His Spirit to those who will humble themselves and repent of all their sins and acknowledge Jesus is the Lord and the only way, the door to enter heaven, nobody else.
We are all called to do our bit too. Everything does have a price. Even things given freely such as the ability to hear and see etc. We have the responsibility to take care of them. And when you think the Holy Bible itself cost Jesus His blood, so that it has power. He had to fulfill the prophecies. Some people only come for the gifts, but will not give anything back that cost much. We all have had some friends at some time or other in our lives like that. We felt like we did all the giving and they did all the taking. That is not true friendship. The same principals works that way with our relationships with God. We too have to give back all that is asked of us, it is only fair after all that He has given us.
If we Love God
If we really love God our interest would be the same as His. We know He grieves so much for His lost children and if we really truly love Him we would be grieving over them too. Because we know where they will end up if they don’t come to accept Christ as their Lord and saviour. We are only little babies compared to our big brother Jesus, so we will not be able to suffer for souls as courageously as He did. But we still are asked to give our all and sometimes that means suffering for His cause, which is always to save souls. We all go about it differently, but that is the beauty of it all.
Now I have got off the subject as usual. I want to share with you an experience I had with Jesus. I want everybody know that God has a most beautiful and tender sense of humour. Full of love. And I want to give you an example of it that just happened recently. I have been talking to God a lot about all the things I want to do when I go to heaven. And one of the things I want to do, is climb trees with my cats. Since climbing trees and all other things will no longer be a problem there. Our bodies being in perfect health and so on. I have very fond memories of my sister and me climbing my grandmother’s mulberry tree. We would be there for ages and ages picking mulberries and eating them to our hearts content. Well one day when I said to Jesus I am going to climb trees with my cats. A thought came to me, (it is a sign to me now that God has put it there) ‘would Jesus climb trees with me and my cats.’ And I saw Jesus in spirit. Just His eyes really. And they had that real look of pleasure and joy because I was wanting in my heart to invite Him to climb trees with us. His eyes were shining with beautiful pleasure as if saying to me, ‘you really can’t believe enough in Me that I love you so much that I would gladly climb trees with you.’
We Really Don’t Know God that Well
We really don’t know our God that well. We think His love for us is always ‘so proper and formal.’ We don’t understand He made the hearts of children, because they reflect a little of His nature. We have many sides to our nature and that is so true with God. We are made in His image. He is of course so superior and pure that we do have no understanding of it. But we will have a better understanding of it when we are in heaven and I think our regret would be ‘if I only knew how much He loved me I would have done so much more.’
“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.”
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
