When Sheila went into her nearest US embassy to get a visa, so as to gain access to the United States, she didn’t have to meet Barack Obama for a visa, nor did she have to meet the Secretary of States, John Kerry, to get a visa. Rather, she was attended to by an ambassador of the United States. The President of the United States appoints the Secretary of States, who is the Chief Ambassador to all ambassadors, and all ambassadors answer to him, the Secretary of States.
God is the President of heaven, Jesus is the Secretary of states, and we, the children of light are the ambassadors.
So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”
2 cor 5:20
When Jesus said, I am the way to heaven, he wasn’t doing this to pull down the other embassies. He was simply saying the truth and the fact.
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.John 14:6
What right did he have that the rest embassies couldn’t and didn’t have to say “I AM the way”?
Here is the answer: I am the living bread that came down from heaven. john 6:51
The others, Allah, Buddha etc, came from somewhere other than heaven. Only Jesus came down from heaven. Therefore, if you want to go to heaven, you have to meet Jesus for your visa. But if you want to go to the place where the other embassies emerged from, then you can meet them too. You can’t go to the Canadian embassy to get an American visa.
You don’t have to travel to meet Jesus in heaven to get your visa, we, the children of God, the ambassadors of heaven can issue the visa to you straightaway. Just as you don’t need to travel all the way to meet John Kerry in America to get a visa, rather, you go to your nearest American embassy, meet an ambassador to the United States and then apply for a visa. The good thing about the visa of heaven is that you get it in a jiffy. Yay! Good news, right?
I know you’ve never done anything wrong. You have a clean record. No criminal record;you’ve never stolen and all of that. But even at that, you still can’t have access to the United States, until you get a visa. America has nothing against you, they just want to see your visa first before you are allowed in. That’s how it is for heaven. Your good deeds cannot take you there. You need the visa of heaven to get there. In a moment, I’ll be sharing with you how to get the visa of heaven. Hang in there, hun 😉
“For God loved the WORLD so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
It didn’t say God loved the church (the Christians) so much that he gave his only son, rather, he loved the world (the people in darkness)so much that he had to give his only son for it
This scripture summarizes God’s passion.
I am sure if you are asked if you love God, your answer will be a big yes. But have you ever wondered what God, your lover loves? People is what God is passionate about. Man! Therefore, if you love God, you’ll love what he loves.
Any believer who doesn’t love people should recheck his/her salvation.
Now why did God send his only son to the world? He did this so as to reconcile the world back to himself. Before Genesis 3, the world was in sync with him. But during and after Genesis 3, there was disarray. Jesus was sent to reconcile the world back to God; to bring order. God yearns for a REconnection with man, that’s why he sent his son to die in place of man.
The word REconciliation in Hebrew is “◄ apokatallassó ►” which means to bring back to a former state of harmony. So man was in perfect harmony with God until Genesis 3, the fall of man. Every man was a citizen of heaven before the fall. But after the fall, man lost his immigration status. Therefore, all men have to go back to the embassy and get their visa in order to have access to heaven. So how could God restore or reconcile back with man? He had to do this by sending his son to die the death that man was supposed to die. And as many that believes in him, they will be reconciled back to God. Reason why the whole world needs to come through Jesus Christ. He’s the only way. Those that have believed in him are now reconciled back to God, and have been given the responsibility of reconciling those still in the world back to God.
And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. 19 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin,[e] so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
2 cor 5:18-21
You that say you love God so much, what are you doing to reconcile back the people Your lover loves? This is your proof of your love for God.
Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10
Before the angels, Jesus dances when a soul is reconciled back to him. You love him? Then make him dance and dance and dance. Stop hating or avoiding the atheists and all of those that are ignorant of the truth, yet. Light doesn’t run from darkness. It goes into darkness and does what it knows how to do best, illuminate. Dear, you’ve got work to do.
Now, the big question! how do I get my visa to heaven?
Heaven is real, I tell you, and you need a visa to get there. Your visa is gotten through accepting Jesus as your lord and Saviour. Believing that he died for you and he rose up again into victory and he’s seated at the right hand of God.
If you are ready to get your visa, please say this short but profound prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Now I know I am born again! In Jesus name, Amen!
You made the right decision.
Ps: Wondering why I spread the word? I do this because it’s a pure delight to talk about my lover any and everywhere I go 😀 Unashamed of him. It’s been a wonderful experience with the wonderful Jesus.
