Sermon Titbits

Entries for November 2014

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. Now that we know that Heaven is a glorious place and is the place that our God wants to be, the next question should be - What should I do to get there? The answer the Bible provides is that we should occupy till The Lord comes back again. Jesus told some parables in order to answer this question. In Luke 19:12-13 the Bible says, "A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come". Jesus also told a similar parable in Matthew 25:14-30. Verses 14 and 15 read as follows "For the kingdom of heaven is as a man traveling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey".

In Revelation 21:2-4, 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. Now that we know that Heaven is a glorious place and is the place that our God wants to be, the next question should be - What should I do to get there?
