Heaven IS A Place Of Light!

Heard and Seen while Praying The Rosary

This is important because our earth will become a place of darkness, but Heaven will remain a Place of Light. And since Heaven is a Place of Light and Heaven is our Home, no matter how dark our lives on earth grow, we will spend eternity in Light 🙂

This is where our Hope IS!

Heaven is more than any of us can imagine. It’s hard to explain Heaven, but think of all of the things you do and now think of them always going well and never having any fear! Imagine a flower touched by light and how beautiful it is! Now imagine flowers touched with God’s Light 🙂

For example, when we pick an apple or buy one. Many of us wash it, in case it has “germs”. And we do this for all the fruit we get, grapes, pears, strawberries, blueberries… But in Heaven, we will not need to wash anything and the fruit warmed by God’s light will taste so amazing :).

The gardens will be more colorful and more fragrant than we have ever seen! The colors of the flowers will be more brilliant; the fragrance will be so beautiful and exactly what we wish for.

In Heaven, we will not have to walk, if we do not wish, to go to the next beautiful site, because we will be able to simply think of it and be there.

The river will be touched by God’s light and the light will dance on it making it astoundingly beautiful! We will be able to drink straight from it with no fear of getting germs or becoming ill.

Sense a pattern here? There are no fears or fatigue or worries or pain or illness in Heaven. When we come Home, we leave all of them behind!

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”-Revelation 21:4

There will be animals in Heaven. Dogs, lions, elephants, horses, zebras…And they will be so happy! We will never need to fear an animal for they shall be happy. And not only that, we will be able to ride any of them 🙂

“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.” – Isaiah 11:6-9

Heaven is not some misty place where we do nothing. Heaven will be filled with awe inspiring grand adventures! And when we are done for the day (so to speak), there will be a wonderful Home for us to go to 🙂

“In My Father’s house are many mansions;” – (Jesus) John 14:2

We will be able to jump from the highest waterfall to the river with no fear! (Remember how our mother’s always said be careful that the water is deep enough lest we hit our head, lol). That won’t apply anymore, the water will always be just right!

We need never fear death, for death is just the door to Heaven. God will send His Angels to get us or come Himself. Even on our journey Home; we will not be alone!

“fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10

If we truly choose to accept Jesus as our Savior, if we love Jesus and follow Him, we WILL go to Heaven.

We need not fear anything on this earth, for Heaven is our true Home.

God Loves All People :)

So often we hear the question asked, “What happens to people who do not believe in Jesus?”

So let me be clear, the only way to Heaven is through the acceptance of Jesus Christ and Following Him.  That’s the only safe way, it’s the only way written about in the Bible.

Do we, as human beings who love others, hope that God makes an acception for some.   Of course we do 😊.   Because we are just human beings.  But if we truly love that person, then we need to be honest with them and tell them the Truth of Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible.  Because Pastor Schaeffer is right, Jesus warned us about Hell because He loved us and didn’t want us to go there.  We need to do the same for those we love.

And Jesus told us how to get to Heaven, a place He prepared  for us, for the same reason.  He loves us.  And we know that is true, because no one would suffer so for someone they didn’t love 😊

A friend of mine asked me what happens to people in countries who are not Christian, such as the Middle East?  Jesus has appeared to many people in countries such as these, and will continue to do so until He comes again.  To assume that people in other countries have not had the opportunity to know and accept Jesus is a mistake.  We really don’t know what Christ does in other countries.

And this is also where Trust comes in.  We know that Jesus loves us All, no matter where we live.  Just as we know that God is Merciful and Just.  When it comes to others, we need to Trust that God will do what is right by All people, because we know that God Loves All People.

And we need to recognize that people make their choice-Heaven or Hell, during this life on earth.  And as much as we may wish to, we don’t get to make it for them, because it is a choice God gave them.

There are those who would attempt to discourage us from sharing the Great News Of Jesus Christ.  Don’t let them, for it IS Great News.  For Jesus has not only made a way to Heaven for us, He will help us in this life as well 😊

God’s Joy & Peace

I wish I could find a way to share with you the joy and peace that comes from being in God’s Presence.  I wish I could share with you how I get there.  But the truth is-Joy and Peace are God’s Gifts to us. They “come” to us, when God sends them 🙂

There’s no magic word or prayer.  There’s no “quick fix”.  I didn’t always have them; but I do now.  Christ’s Gift.

The only thing I can share with you from my personal experience are two things.  One if you keep following Christ, joy and peace will come to you.

Second, when they do come, Joy and Peace will not necessarily be yours 24/7.  This is earth and we live in a fallen world.  But they will be there when you need them, and even sometimes when you don’t.

God’s Mercy on us, a small part of Heaven here on earth 😊

Walk With God :)

“For we walk by faith, not by sight”-2 Corinthians 5:7

Sometimes it can be hard to keep going. We look at the news, the world, the growth of atheism and witchcraft. It can seem dark indeed.

But we do not “walk” according to what we see in this world; we walk according to what we “see” in God’s world. And what we “see” in God’s world has not changed. Heaven still exists, it always will. And it is still our forever home and always will be. God will still answer our prayers; He always will. And He will still rescue us-even if it is sometimes from ourselves.

There’s no doubt the upcoming election concerns us all. But we also need to remember that God still loves us. God always will. And nothing that occurs in this world can change that!

So walk with God. Be the Light 🙂

Make Every Day Count!

In Psalm 90:12 it says, “So teach us to number our days”

We don’t often think about that, in fact, some of us actively avoid thinking about it, lol. But the truth is each one of us has only so many days on this earth.

So we only have so many days to share God’s Love & Mercy. To share the Good News about Jesus Christ! And to share our knowledge of how to get to Heaven and just how important that is!

Because make no mistake, Jesus is the Hope for our world, today and everyday, and we are all looking for that 🙂

Make Every Day Count!

Be the Light :)

If Our Nation Becomes Covered In Darkness, Be The Light :)

In Daniel 12:3 it says, “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the fimament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.”

Recently, millions of Christians participated in The Return. Some in person, even more through the telecast. During The Return, Jonathan Cahn talked about God’s Judgment, and the fact that it could be occuring soon.

Is this the Last Days we often read about, or is it the Judgement of our nation for the many sins we have commited? Only God knows.

Millions of babies have been murdered and gay marriage has become the law of the land. Netflix’s “cuties” has pushed the boudaries of all that is decent and right. Our inner cities’ are poverty sticken and violent. The list is endless…

Make no mistake, forgiveness for all of those who have sinned is available to all through Jesus Christ. And let’s face it, we have all sinned. We have all fallen short. That’s why this Bible verse is such a comfort to so many:

“as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”=Psalm 103:12

But a nation that does not repent and seek forgiveness is not forgiven.

We really don’t know if our country will turn back to God in time-or not

But one thing we do know, is that -should our country and it’s people be covered in darkness: God will shine a light. And the Holy Spirit will shine a light through us to reach out to others. If we let Him.

Let Him. Be the Light 🙂

Sharing Jesus :)

Oswald Smith, a great preacher who was born in 1890, once said: “Oh, to realize that souls, precious, never dying souls, are perishing all around us, going out into the blackness of darkness and despair, eternally lost, and yet to feel no anguish, shed no tears, know no travail! How little we know of the compassion of Jesus!

The question that comes to my mind after reading this, is “are we as compassionate as Jesus is?” Although some in the media and political circles constantly put down people of faith, do we not have a responsibilty to share our faith with ALL of God’s people? For our Father loves ALL people. And especially since we know that Jesus is the only way to Heaven, do we not need to share Him with others?

Christ says in Mark 16:15, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.”

And if we love ALL of God’s people, than that is what we need to do! If we believe in Jesus, we need to believe what He said. And we need to do what He commanded.

Leave no one behind. Be the Light 🙂

Have we lost our freedom by turning away from God?

In Nehemiah, Chapter 9 37-38, we see that many of the Jewish people had turned away from God and they paid a great price for it!  The Kings that ruled over them had “dominion” over their “bodies and over their cattle.” They were in great “distress”!  And all because they turned their backs on our Lord!    

Sounds a lot like our country.  Our country has turned its back on that which made it great in the first place, Faith in Jesus Christ.  Now our government rules us with an iron fist.  They control where we can go, whether we can attend church, which medicines we can take, what food we can eat…We have lost our God-Given freedom without a shot being fired.  But there are three things they can not control:  God, Our Prayers and Heaven.

And there is something else.  In Nehemiah 10, it goes on to list those that were “Sealed” by God.  What does that mean?  It means that they belonged to the Lord Himself.  Why?  Because they followed God and they did their very best to do as our Lord commanded.  And that is what we need to do. 

For if we belong to our Father God, ultimately, He will protect us.  Because He loves us, and because we belong to Him 😊

There is more written in God’s Word on being Sealed with the Holy Spirit and how you can be Sealed with the Holy Spirit (more on that in future posts) 😊

Covid 19 & Dieing

There’s been a lot written lately about the sadness of people dieing alone from Covid 19.  And while it is incredibly hard not to be able to be with those we love when they pass, the truth is, as you know,  no one dies alone.  Because Jesus is with them :). 

We live in extraordinary times and in these extraordinary times, Jesus may indeed give those we love extraordinary comfort, because He loves us 🙂
