Heaven, Our Permanent Home

October 10, 2017

Walking into my home after a week away was so wonderful. “Home is were the heart is” is an old saying but true. However, as a Christian we should be looking for our permanent home, Heaven. There we will see our wonderful Savior, Jesus. We will be with our loved ones who have gone on before. Also, we will meet the people that we have had the privilege of leading to the Lord. Or will we go in empty handed with no one because we failed to witness to our family, friends or neighbors? Will the Lord say to us, “Well done thou good and faithful servant”? Let us get busy and tell as many people as possible about this beautiful place that we will be going to when the Lord calls us home.

Matthew 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.



Home Sweet Home

August 9, 2017

Have you ever been away from home for awhile. Vacation, business trip or travel. Then it is time to go “home”. What great anticipation. You may live in a mansion or a small cottage, but whatever the property it is still home. As Christians we should have the same love and anticipation for our heavenly home, Heaven. Waiting for us there is Jesus, our loved ones who have gone on before us, and wonders we cannot even imagine. Jesus said:

John 14:2-3 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.

Street of Gold

May 2, 2017

Looking for gold? Heaven’s streets are paved with it.

Revelation 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

God’s Time

November 6, 2016

Genesis 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Did you remember to set your clock back? When the time changes twice a year from standard to daylight saving time and back again, our bodies take a few days to get on schedule. Many of us would like to see the time not change. Man decided we can change time but there is still 24 hours in a day, created by God. The sun rises and sets, there is light and darkness and seasons. 

Sometimes God may laugh at us thinking we can think we change time but the real change will come when we walk on the streets of gold and there will be no night there. Jesus will be the light. 

Revelations 23-27 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there

Well Done

September 12, 2016

This past week, Rick, Grace and Evie (son-in-law and 2 daughters) helped Carolyn Curtis paint the inside of her home. It was a long tedious job and took an entire week before the job was completed but the work and effort was entirely worth it. The transformation of the home after many years is amazing. A job well done.

When we meet Jesus, He will look at the work we have done for Him here on earth. Will His comment be to you, “Well done, thy faithful servant” or “Depart from me I never knew you”? 

Born again Christians have a responsibility to Him to obey and do the work He has called us to do. Unsaved people sometimes do “good works” thinking that is enough to get them into heaven. When I stand before Him, I want to hear, Well Done. How about you?

Matthew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Seven Souls

July 14, 2016

Another Wednesday has passed and seven more people are on their way to Heaven because of the workers who give their time on Wednesday mornings to set up an SOS Events booth at the Plant City Fl Flea Market. What a tremendous blessing have souls saved every week. We know that it is God who gives the increase.

1 Corinthians 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

The Right Choice

June 22, 2016

Yesterday, I had the privilege of flying to a destination on a jet plane. What normally would take 14 hours to drive took only a little over an hour on a reliable plane. There was a momentary fear when I overheard the pilot say, “Oh no.” After a temporary power failure. Everything was back to normal in a few seconds and the trip was uneventful. I reached my destination safely.

This made me think of the examples on the website of the 3 planes. If you don’t know these examples go to the home page a scroll down until you see the pictures of 3 planes. 

Everyone wants to go to Heaven but many people are trusting in the wrong “plane” to get them there. Trusting in Jesus death, burial and resurrection for payment for your sins is the only way we can reach our destination, Heaven. Have you made the right choice?

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

New Heaven & New Earth

May 29, 2016

“I have read the last page of the Bible, and it is going to turn out alright.” Billy Graham

Revelation 21:1&2 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Present with the Lord

May 19, 2016

Today my much loved husband’s body will be buried. He is not dead but more alive now than he ever has been here on earth. We who are left will shed tears today because will will miss him, but we know he is with the One he loved the most, Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Hot, Cold or Lukewarm 

April 26, 2016

The church is not the way to heaven; the church is the sign that points to heaven.” – Adrian Rogers

This week witnessing to a man in the hospital, he said he was angry with the church that he attended because he was always asked to give money. He wanted nothing to do with church or God because of a bad experience with a clergyman. 

How sad that some denominations and some churches think more of money and church attendance than they do of winning people to the Lord. In this particular instance the church was not a Bible believing church but trusted in tradition and ritual. But sometimes even our “good” churches focus on programs instead of winning souls to the Lord. God sent His Son, Jesus, for one reason, to die so that we might have eternal life and have a home in Heaven. It must break the heart of God that we have become lukewarm and He will hold each church and individual responsible for what we have done for Him.

Revelation 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
