In Judges 6: 11 – 14, the Bible reads “And there came an angel of the Lord, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abi–ezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites. And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him, and said unto him, The Lord is with thee, thou mighty man of valour. And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the Lord be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt? but now the Lord hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites. And the Lord looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee”? (Judges 6:11-14 KJV)

In the previous message, we discussed the place called hell and it's purpose. In Mark 9:43-48, we read that hell is a place of pain, torment and lamentation and that it is not the will of God for anyone to end up there. The Bible in the book of Revelations describes for us the place called heaven. It is the dwelling place of God and that is the place He desires for all mankind to live with Him in eternity. In Revelation 21:2-4, 21-26 the Bible says "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. ...... And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it"

As we live our lives every day, we must always remember that we are here for a purpose: to live our lives for God. We are here to represent God and to be about our Father’s business until He comes. The devil does not want us to succeed, therefore he will do everything he can to distract us. Those who are successfully distracted by the devil end up in hell, a place reserved for the devil and his fallen angels. God does not desire for us to end up in hell, but to spend eternity with Him in heaven. That is why we have to be sober and be vigilant daily so that we can recognize and resist the devil whenever he comes to attack us through deception.

The lyrics of a song I love say in part "Are you standing in need of a miracle today? Even doctors don't what to do about your case. Our God is able to make a way where there's no way. God is still doing great things". The lyrics of this song speak to the situation of the woman with the issue of blood we read about in the Bible. The scripture says in Mark 5:25 "And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse". For twelve years this woman went from one physician to another. Her hopes of getting well kept rising and falling; She suffered many disappointments in hands of doctors. To make her situation worse, she spent all her income on her medical bills and there was no improvement.
