God has wonderful things in store for us at the end of the journey.
This post , of all the ones I've read since Tipping Point started, is the most concise, descriptive and comforting one I've read to date! It gives us a clear picture of our future in our Heavenly home and what a joyous life awaits us there. As much as I appreciate my life here on earth--I've been blessed with wonderful parents, siblings, husband and sons as well as friends--I'm so looking forward to the day I will truly meet Jesus and dwell with him into eternity!💕
So blessed by this post❣️🙏🏼
I pray God helps me to know & do His will in my life.
I want to please our Lord Jesus & I mourn the years I wasted on worldly things.
Come Lord Yeshua❣️🙏🏼
Can't wait to get home. Feel more like Lot all the time. Maranatha!
2 Peter 2:7-8 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition He rescued righteous Lot, greatly worn out and distressed by the wanton ways of the ungodly and lawless. For that just man, living there among them, tortured his righteous soul every day with what he saw and heard of their unlawful and wicked deeds.
Amen and again I say Amen. Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, and mind has not imagined what God has for us!
I love this so much! I struggle with a great fear over eternity - the idea of time never ending scares me - and I pray about it. God gave me a dream with basically a reverse rapture, where all UNbelievers were taken away and we remained on the earth with Him. He asked "are you afraid?" And I wasn't. He said it wasn't eternity I'm afraid of, it's the unknown. But Heaven will be home like nothing I've ever experienced and remembering that helps me. Trusting how great God's love for me is, helps me. Thank you for this article because it helps me too.
Wonderful message. This is the season of giving and remembering Jesus's birth. Your message tells how much more joy, love, contentment is coming. Its more than my simple brain can comprehend.
I get butterflies in my stomach, when I think of his paradise. It's like experiencing your first puppy love. The concept of heaven makes me feel that way. I am so anticipating his arrival, as things of this earth get worse day by day. Imagine never feeling fear again only being enveloped in love. This is what we have to look forward to brothers and sisters, we should all feel blessed. Thank you Pastor Evans for this wonderful and inspiring word.
Beautiful description. Can hardly wait to marry Jesus and go to the Father’s house and see the place He has prepared for me…out of this world!
I just started reading “Heaven” by Randy Alcorn this weekend so this post is super timely! One thing I’ve been reflecting on is the idea of Heaven on earth. Questions I’ve had are like why doesn’t the local church ever go deeper into what Heaven is like? Most people only think of worshiping all day and night and that’s it. But just in my brief time of reading this book, I have already begun to imagine more than ever before about our future eternal home! Here is a scripture brought up a lot but never really explained beyond verse 9.
9 but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, 13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. - 1 Corinthians 2:9-13 NASB1995
The concept of Heaven is not a mystery to us. Verse 10 in this passage states “For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.”
So we can know more about Heaven than we realize. Through the Spirit who reveals it to us who are in Christ!
““The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law.” - Deuteronomy 29:29 NASB1995
“Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!”
What is doing the will of the Father? Would it be following the Ten Commandments? What exactly does that entail? Praying for others, talking with HIM and doing nice things for others…does that fit in the Fathers will? I try to be patient, non judgmental, helpful and always kind, praying and reading the word, doing my best to be like the LORD, or as close as I can with my sin nature….but I am a believer and recently in the past year or two, learned of the Rapture….so I am praying I am found worthy to escape the things coming upon the earth and to stand before the Son of Man.
Because it says few will make it ….I Love the LORD and don’t want to let him down, to have HIM happy with me….I feel I may be missing the mark. I love HIM so much but don’t know how to have a fulfilled relationship ….maybe because I am not sure what true love is? (when you don’t know a Dads love it is difficult to imagine).
Anyway, thank you for taking time to read. If you have time to respond that would be appreciated.
GOD BLESS YOU AND HIS FACE SHINE UPON YOU ALL
I do think this message is vastly lacking out here. Where there is no hope their is despair....
Amen and again I say Amen!
This article brings so much serenity. One of my favorites ❤️ and I will read it multiple times knowing that it’s a home waiting for me.
Thank you 😊
What an AWESOME post! They are always awesome but I think this just happened to hit at the right time with the conviction I needed. My favorite part of the whole article was:
"Now, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying the pleasures of earth, like good food and good friends. However, there is something very wrong with exchanging our dependence on God for wealth, ego satisfaction, and the physical pleasures of this world."
I had to do a self-inventory to see if I was ever guilty:
2. Ego and satisfaction:....🤔............✅🙋♂️🙋♂️
3. Physical pleasures:....🤔....😦......✅🙋♂️🙋♂️🙋♂️🙋♂️🙋♂️🙋♂️🙋♂️
😞 I'm grateful for God's grace and that I am most dependent on Him when I am broken.
Please keep me broken Father.
Now that was absolutely magnificent as usual - thanks so much for that Jimmy.
Said it once and I’ll say it again - roll on rapture!!! 😊🙏👍
Thank you so much pastor Jimmy!!!!! I love this site!!!!
I’m about 1/2 way through Heaven by Randy Alcorn, (of course at the suggestion of our Tipping Point Librarian Kari 😆😆😆) I love it. This site and your book Tipping Point and Missing People have litteraly changed my walk with God. Since my teens I have loved end time teaching and had a great youth pastor that was instrumental in my fascination with eschatology. I will never be a passive Christian again!!! I will be loud in Jesus❤️❤️✝️✡️⬆️
