Bible Ballistics: BBs #150 Why Do You Want Heaven???
Portions of Revelation 4 and 7, “…behold,
a throne was set in heaven,
and one sat on the throne.
3 And he that sat was to look upon like a and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald…..
8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings…….
and they rest not day and night,
saying, Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty,
and is to come……
9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever…..
10 The four and twenty elders fall down
before him that sat on the throne,
and worship him
that liveth for ever and ever,
and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
11 Thou art worthy, O Lord,
to receive glory
for thou hast created all things, and
for thy pleasure
and were created.”
7:15, ”Therefore are they before the throne of God,
and serve him day and night in his temple:
and he that sitteth on the throne
shall dwell among them.”
It’s a lengthy passage, but one that declares that in Heaven, GOD is GOD. Not only is He God but He is acknowledged as such, He is praised and honored and worshipped as such CONTINUALLY! He is served willingly, lovingly and CONTINUALLY!
So??? Here’s our shot for today. Why would you want to go to heaven?
You don’t acknowledge God’s authority NOW!
You don’t want to spend time with God NOW!
You don’t want to hear God NOW!
You don’t want to obey God NOW!
You don’t want to read God’s Word NOW!
You don’t care about pleasing Him NOW!
You don’t bow before Him NOW!
You don’t serve Him NOW!
You don’t submit to His power NOW!
You don’t give or bring Him glory, or honor NOW!
So??? Why would you want to go to heaven where that’s all we will do day and night—
spend time with,
hear and obey,
know the reality of His Word,
care about what pleases Him,
bow before Him,
submit and serve Him,
and bring Him glory and honor forever.
I want to GO!!! Won’t you bow before Him now?
