The Glory of the Heavenly Perspective (Part 2 of 2)
Hebrews 11:8-19 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
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? John 3:1-7 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. Mat 6:33 Rom 12:1 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.

Going Thru The Motions
John 4:11-26 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
In the scripture we see in John 4:23-24 that people worship falsely. Understand that Jesus told us that it’s not where you worship but how. Jesus was making a new and living way of worship. No longer would they have to go to a certain place at a certain time and sacrifice a certain animal. Now everything that happened before Christ was just a shadow of things to come. It was paving the way for Christ. All those traditions and sacrificial items where all a representation of the One to come. In our own church we certainly have true worshippers, however we also have false ones. Jesus is a Spirit, He is THE spirit therefore we must worship Him thru spiritual means. Had created humans to be different than the animals as humans are the only living creature that has a soul. So when we worship God we must worship Him from the heart, soul. The opposite of the spirit is the flesh. In music a person can do it either way, spirit of flesh. One can play or sing their heart out without a single honor of God. You might be able to sing like bird but if you can sing Jesus Loves Me and clip your nails at the same time there’s a miss. In truth one must also worship. Just the same with the spirit, God is also Truth and therefore we must worship Him in truth. Hebrews 9:24, traditions, emblems and even actions, if they are not of God then they are not true. Before Christ, the priests were given rules and items on how to worship. During that time these things were required and were God given, in other words, they were Holy and true. They were not wrong and were held in the highest regard and honor. Then, when Christ came He changed all of that. No longer are those things are in the past and the true worshipper must worship in spirit and truth. Truth is about not letting anything in the way of worship. If you’re not worshipping God from the heart then you missed it. One shouldn’t sing the hymnals because they know them but sing as an offering unto God. Being a member or visiting New Providence because they have a great song leader is not worship. Going because of something other than honoring Christ is sinful and not worship. We often hear it asked, “What’s my purpose in life?” The answer is simple, it’s not about you but about Him. You were created to honor God.

Who Is That God?
Daniel 3:16-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
God is able to deliver from anything. In this story we see these three mean had already made up their minds on what they were going to do. We are prone to worry and fear those things that we can’t control. Rest assured that when it’s out of our control, it’s always in Gods control. Pharaoh thought he had Moses and his people but God had other plans. When they came to their brick wall of water, God rolled the water back and they all walked on dry ground, not muddy. Not only did they cross on dry ground but when each and everyone of them were safe, God closed the water back stopping Pharaoh and his army.

Jesus Kept His Scars
John 20:19-29 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
We read that when we as believers in Christ die, we are to receive a new body. A glorified body that is without blemish. However, in this reading we see that Jesus died and went to Heaven. He then returned and kept the scars of His death. There are two things about scars. One type of scar is physical yet others are hidden. Scars are reminders of former hurts. Most physical scars when they begin came with a great deal of pain. Some scars are by accidents and others are on purpose. Either way, they are a reminder of things that were in the past. Physical scars, the pain is also physical and that pain usually goes away in time. Internal scars are things that are hidden but cause one to suffer usually a long time. Physical scars are created quickly, but the hurt also quickly goes away. Internal scars if left alone will fester and begin to grow into a horrible infection. Sometimes these scars can be hidden very well with a smile or laughter. These scars are tied to a memory that never been taken care of. God is able to take those memories. He is able to take care of them in the blink of an eye. Sometimes He will take care of them but will require you to walk a down path of experiences in order for you to be healed. You wound will either take you or break you. If you allow the wound to fester and grow then you will have to make a choice between living and asking God to be the doctor to that wound or giving into the devil and end your life. Don’t let the devil have control of your life and wound you more. Hebrews 4:15; Don’t ever think that Jesus doesn’t know what suffering you’re going thru. Jesus had His own father turn His back on Him. Jesus was sinless up until His death. He took upon Himself ALL the sins of the world from then until the end of time.

Doctrine of Justification
Romans 5:1-20 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).
Doctrine of Justification There is nothing other than faith where we are justified. One can’t get to God unless one is justified. Justification is the purpose to make one righteous in the sight of God. Sin excludes humans from God. Justified, just if I’d never sinned. Romans 4:20-25, God took your sin and swapped it with Jesus’ righteousness. There are entire religions that are founded on the exact opposite as Romans 4:20-25. If you couldn’t earn being justified, how could you do something that removed your justification? The most important question, do you know if you’ve been born again? We get three things thru justification. We get peace with God. If you are a sinner then you are an enemy of His and you by choosing not to love His son have chosen to live In Hell for eternity. We have grace. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t from grace. We have all the grace we can handle by faith thru Jesus Christ. Imagine a homeless person that was brought into a mansion, cleaned up , fed, given a bed to sleep in, and a place to stay in peace. All of this was simply given without warrant. The man didn’t deserve it and never did anything to deserve it. This is grace. We have Hope. Did you know that if you take away hope from a prisoner, they will die? They have nothing to live for. If one has been born again then you have the hope in what’s yet to come. The better day that coming when no more suffering, no more sin, heartache, etc. Romans 5:5
