The Truth About Easter
God Never Panics, He Has a Plan – Part 2
Romans 14:9-11, TLB; Matthew 3:16-17, NKJV; Matthew 5:3, NKJV; Matthew 7:11, NKJV; Deuteronomy 11:21, NKJV: Matthew 6:9-10, NKJV)
Part of God’s plan is for us to enjoy some of heaven while we are here on earth.
We will all face the test of life and death. (Romans 14:9-11, TLB)
We will all be tested on Who and How we live our life.
The Test will include Books and the Book.
Because Jesus died and rose we will all appear before Him for a least two judgements. (Revelation 20:11-15, NCV)
First Judgement (Test) is by the Books. (Works without faith)
People who don’t really have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ will be cast in the lake of fire. (Matthew 7:21-23, NKJV)
Second Judgment (Test) is by the Book. (Revelation 20:14-15, NKJV)
Jesus is the only way to get your name written in the Book.
The only people who will be allowed into Heaven and stay in heaven are the ones who have put their faith in the slain Lamb of God. (2 Corinthians 5:17, NKJV; John 6:40, NKJV; James 2:19, NKJV; John 3:16-17, NKJV)
Experiencing heaven on earth is some of the greatest experiences in life. (Matthew 28:1-8, NKJV)
Mary experienced some of the most exciting news and miracles in her life and God is still in the most exciting news and miracle business.
Experiencing heaven while here on earth most often involves us doing our part to furthering God’s Kingdom.
Most people don’t experience Heaven while on earth because they are not willing to pay the price. (Matthew 13;43-46, NKJV)
The common denominator to having the Kingdom of heaven while here on earth is the price it cost.
The one common results of having the Kingdom of Heaven we experience the power and value to answer and meet ever need in our life.
Understanding the value of the Kingdom of God meeting every need in our life should lead us to selling and removing anything that is getting in our way of getting the Kingdom of God.
What is the real problem?
Most people come to church for what they can get not what they can give. (Acts 20:35, NKJV; Luke 19:10, NKJV; Mark 8:35-36, NKJV; Romans 1:21, NCV; Romans 1:24-31, NCV)
The reason most people are missing out on heaven while here on earth they are selfish and not willing to pay the price.
How can we experience some heaven while still here on earth?
Be willing to pay the price by being prepared. (Matthew 25:1-13, NKJV; Matthew 6:33-34, NKJV; Mark 8:34-37, NCV)
