I spent some good time in the Word this afternoon while sitting in a coffee shop. where else would I be? Actually I sipped on tea and some old fashion H2O today. Trying to kick that last bit of the head cold. But I started jotting down some thoughts as I read and studied because I wanted to share it with you.
Before I started studying Heaven I had slim to no understanding of the topic. I think "intimidating" is an appropriate word to describe how I felt about it. But really I didn't think of it very often. Not that I've got all the answers now, but I'm excited that it's able to be studied and some questions are actually able to be answered. In fact, I'm learning that if I'm not thinking about Heaven often, it's a problem. I should be excited for eternity and it should be motivating my current life.
I knew that Jesus came to earth to rescue me from the debt my sin has and will rack up against me. I was grateful, overwhelmingly grateful in fact. What I didn't understand was that I was created FOR Jesus. Before I did one thing wrong He loved me. And when I, as all others, did mess up, He still loved (loves) me. What is annoying to me, that I've come to learn, is that I believe lies much to easily. And the enemy, better known to some as devil or satan, is so eager to lie to me and belittle Jesus' love for me. "Are you good enough?" "Are you worth it?" "NO, you're not worth all that love." "You've made one to many mistakes." UHG... That evil guy annoys me so much. I want truth and solid truth at that!
The Bible says that it is inspired by God. It also says that God cannot lie.
Satan is a liar and the father of lies.
So as I study Heaven and discover amazing things I will be looking to the Bible as confirmation.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof,
for correction, and for training in righteousness,
that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath,
so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us.
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
