"In My Father's house are many mansions" - John 14:2
So many people are under the impression that the Lord GOD, Creator of the Universe, was and is a waster. HE created the whole Universe, the billions of galaxies, trillions of solar systems and only on this little planet HE created the conditions to support life. Again it demonstrates man's extreme egoistic belief that he is supreme and dominant in the Universe. He alone has the right to exist as a being that 'evolved' from the sludge and grime and slime of prehistoric seas. In his mind there can be NO other beings better than him in this whole created Universe. He knows as every creature knows, that there is a GOD, somewhere in the Universe. . . . but he is not even willing to admit that possibility.
As As a boy we had no calculators, computers, Help-U-Cards, Jet Planes, Space programmes or televisions. We had a very poor telephone service. From town to town we were sometimes delayed for anything from two hours till 18 hours and then you could hardly hear everything that was spoken.
We had the ATOMIC BOMB! A brutal, destructive weapon dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing thousands of innocent people. We tried to listen to the News on one of those "snap, crackle and pop" radio receivers with the long outside wire aerials and could at least, to our utmost horror, make out what was being said. For some time afterwards, people couldn't speak about it. Every one choked on their words and some cried openly.
O yes, there was a lot of compassion in those days before television came along and killed all emotional feelings. Too much violence every day to look at and you couldn't care any more. After all, it is someone else, far away, that is suffering. It is not affecting you. You don't want to be involved!
The changes came fast, technological, medical, spiritual and no one from that era would recognise the world today as their old world. Landscapes are changing just as fast. Knowledge is also increasing rapidly. Today we remember the Moonwalk as just one of those things that happened. No big deal!
Politically the world is changing. Very few can adapt to the changes taking place all around them and they can not adapt to the Spiritual changes happening amongst them in their own families. Many members of families get involved in strange doctrines, rejecting the Christian principles, grabbing at straws for their Salvation. They become disillusioned by the sermons preached in churches, empty and without meaning. They are searching for the Truth and can not find it. The church doctrines are too imbedded into the preachers, brainwashed until they believe nothing else but what they were taught. They don't study the Bible and they don't know how easy it is to be a Christian. It is easy, CHRIST JESUS said so Himself. Read for yourself: Matthew 11:28-30 His yoke is easy, the burden is light. Those are the words of CHRIST JESUS Himself! It is easy to be a Christian, but other people's ideas make it hard and difficult. It was not meant to be so!
By accepting Him as personal Saviour He gave you the Power to become sons and daughters of GOD.
To beCOME, not just to "be"!. Read it in John 1:12+13.
How do you become sons and daughters of the LIVING GOD?
Do what He commanded! Repent and be Baptised and you will receive the Holy Spirit, the seal of your Adoption as a child of GOD. JESUS is offering a new world to every one of you! A brand New World, without any hardship, tears, frustrations, illness, death or any other detrimental aspects. A Heavenly Home. Not the Heaven preached in churches, the Heaven as written of in the Bible. A big difference.
Man was created with a Pioneering Spirit - an Inquisitive Mind always seeking Knowledge. He is an Active being and can not be Passive and that is the kind of person some say he'll be in Heaven. 1 Corinthians 2:9-16 tells us that no one can comprehend the Glorious things GOD has prepared for HIS Sons and Daughters.
At night, take a long look up, to the stars and just imagine, the swirling, pulsatingly Cosmos up there! The Galaxies, Solar Systems and the trillions of Starsuns shining down on you. Look through a telescope and you'll see them better. A new heaven will unfold before your weak eyes. You will see Galaxies of different shapes and sizes glowing and pulsating to the Glory of their Creator. Some of the starlights took thousands of years to reach this far into our Solar system. Stand amazed at the wonders of the Creation. Your GOD and mine, fashioned it for a purpose, not to beautify the sky for those on Earth.
HE fashioned ALL for you and for me! Those lights are suns and around them there are Solar systems, planets in orbit, waiting to be inhabited by the Sons and the Daughters of the Living GOD!
Through our adoption we became Heirs of GOD and co-heirs of JESUS CHRIST. Read Galatians 4:1-7.
Practically all Christians believe that they will one day, rule the Earth with JESUS CHRIST. That, my BIBLE does not state. They take the verses from the book of Revelation 5:7-10 and build their faith on that. On the contrary, the 24 Elders will rule with JESUS CHRIST and not the believers. It is stated in the same book of Revelation 1:5,6 that those washed and cleansed by the Blood of JESUS CHRIST, are made Kings and Priests unto GOD and HIS FATHER.
If all Bloodwashed believers were to rule with JESUS CHRIST on this Earth, how crowded will it be? There are millions who can claim Kingship with JESUS CHRIST and the space on Earth is limited.
There are some strange statements made in Romans 8:15-39 and it contradicts the beliefs of many. Romans 8:19 - "For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God." Romans 8:22 - "For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now." Why should the whole creation groan and travail in pain together until now! For the creation awaits for the manifestation of the Sons of GOD. What has it got to do with us, the Redeemed? Why is the Whole Creation waiting for the Manifestation of the Sons of GOD?
We are taught that we will be in Heaven and just idle around, singing! The Heaven taught by church ministers is very boring and unacceptable to most Christians, but yet they Hope for something better than what they were told. They are right!!!
There is a better and much more fulfilling Future awaiting each Son and Daughter of GOD! Your personality doesn't die at death. Your Soul and your Personality and also All your Knowledge lives on after death. Everything you do now, is part of your Future. All your experiences, your learning, your knowledge, your hopes and your dreams, you carry with you. This Planet is like a big school were you have to decide for yourself what you want to be in the Future life. What kind of "Adam or Eve" you will be! As a King or Ruler on your own world, how are you going to cope?
Fortunately the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD is All Pervading and Omni-present, and HE will be able to direct and help when you, because of your ignorance, have to attend a school of learning. Yes! There will be such a thing as a school for those who have no skills. Not the way we have here on Earth. There all the gross sentiments and emotions will be gone. You will live in your New Resurrected bodies and will be in Harmony with the whole of creation. We have an inheritance, predestinated by JESUS CHRIST.
