Topic: God Is Not Mad At You [Thursday November 2, 2017]
“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.” (Hebrews 8:12 KJV)
It is sad to know that when some believers read Matthew 7:13-14, they think that scripture is saying that only a few people will go to heaven, but it is a lie. Revelation 7:9 (KJV) says “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindred, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;” The bible also declares in Romans 10:13 (KJV), that “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Do you know that there are some of your family members who are in heaven now who you think are in hell? All they did was call on the name of the Lord and God said: “Come up to heaven,”. Somebody may say it is not possible. But I want to ask you, what about the thief on the cross? What good work did he do to merit going to heaven? If it is a case of works then he will be in hell because he was a professional thief.
Beloved, enjoy Jesus because God is for you and He is not mad at you. The more you know Him, the more you enjoy Him. The more you know him, the more you become strong in Him and the more you enjoy his power. If you read the Bible closely you will see that Jesus was always close to people. He says he will never leave you nor forsake you and he means it. It is religious people that throw people away and not Jesus. I declare to you today that you will not be forsaken nor will you be forgotten. Whatever be the battle you are involved in, victory is yours in Jesus name.
