The Glory of the Heavenly Perspective (Part 2 of 2) (Hebrews 11:8-19)Tommy Boring, April 5, 2020
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
The earthy perspective can be deadly due to the human nature of depression and despair. But if we’ve been born again, we can share the joy and excitement of the Heavenly perspective.
One can tell you all about Disney Land in California but if one hasn’t been there then it’s not as important as one that’s experienced. The question, are you born again?
The greatest thing in this current time is having a perspective of having a Heavenly perspective. The lost stop and look around and wonder about a lot of “if’s” and questions. In the end the lost are still lost and confused. The worlds viewpoint is that they have no idea what is going on and therefore usually spread unglodly points. Those points will quickly take over your mind and heart if you’re not careful.
Heb 11:8-9; in faith he followed. Once God calls your name as a lost person you will make a choice to either follow in faith or turn away. Romans 10:8-9, thru faith we are saved. Now a saved person has never seen the streets of gold but we know that God can’t lie and that is one of His promises. Romans 10:10, your heavenly perspective is also about believe what God has said in His Word. Who want’s to go to Heaven? Most all would say yes and would even say they are going but that is a lie from the devil himself. There is only one way to Heaven and that’s being Born Again, believing in Jesus Chrsit as your personal savior.
Heb 11:10, If your’re born again do you desire heaven? Your hope is not what you have or seen but in those things that are unseen. The older one gets in their walk with Christ the more it just doesn’t matter and your hope is more in Christ! Romans 8:28, having a heavenly perspective means that we have this particular view. No matter the journey in the end of a born again believer is good.
Just because it looks good doesn’t mean it’s right or good. There are many things that might seem nice, good or even promising but in the end it’s bad. This is the problem with an earthly perspective, sinful nature.
Are you a new creature? A new creature knows that this is not it’s home.
Hebrews 11:17-19, when Abraham was called that day to take his only son up to the mountain and for him to sacrifice him, he without question, went up and began to do it. Obedience at it’s finest.
One can take everything of a Christians away but those things are all going to be earthly. It might be hard but the hope is not in those things down here but in Heaven above. The saved are purchased with a price, very great price. Once saved then you then become a joint heir.
A promise that can’t be undone, death has no victory when eternal life is given at the point salvation is made. Eternal life, a place that’s prepared, never leave or forsake, sealed until redemption, provides for us, etc.
Heb 11:14, the people of God, the born again, they need to be persuaded that God IS everything you need And can not fail; Romans 8:38.
2 Tim 1:12, Having confidience
We should embrace God and let your light shine to the others that you’ve been persuaded with great confidence that you’re but strangers here and that God is in full control.
Did you know that 1 out of every 1 will die? Knowing that truth it should cause you to think about your future after death.

8By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. 9By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: 10For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. 11Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised. 12Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable. 13These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. 15And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. 17By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 18Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 19Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.
