LIFE AFTER DEATH
Main text-John 14:1-3(KJV)-Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
Revelation 3:21 (KJV)-To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
The ultimate goal of every believer is to enjoy life after death. From where we read in our main text, Jesus told us that He has gone to prepare a place for us which is heaven. The essence of Jesus coming is to save mankind from destruction and to open the door of heaven which had been shut against us (Luke 19:10). Nevertheless, only those who overcome will make it to heaven. The question then is: “What are we to overcome?” We are to overcome Satan, sin and the world. We are to overcome lusts of the flesh and all evil thoughts and imaginations of our heart. We can only overcome these vices not by our own strength and struggle but by the power of the Holy Spirit at work in us. This power is made available to us the moment we believe and receive Christ Jesus as Lord and saviour(John 1:12). By this power we are enabled to live victorious sin-free lives.
Only the sons of God will inherit the kingdom of God and the sons of God are those who are led by the spirit of God. If must make heaven, we are not just to have the Holy Spirit living inside of us, but we must also allow Him to lead and direct our lives. We must allow the Holy spirit in us to influence our decision and choices at very point in time. A life influenced by the HOLY SPIRIT is a righteous and holy life and it is the life that will make heaven..
ONLY A HOLY LIFE WILL LIVE EVEN AFTER DEATH
