God’s Word: Revelation 17:1-18 (The Message)
God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)
Entrance into My heaven is reserved for those who have signed up with Me. Some say I will accept everyone and I will. However, you must sign up to have your name in My Book of Life. I will send no one to hell. Anyone going there goes by their own free will—much like Disneyland. First you learn about Disneyland, and then you make your plans about how to get there and purchase your tickets. No one just shows up at Disneyland, without tickets, and expects to get in. Sorry. And that is about how it works for those who wish to reserve a spot in My heaven.
You learn about My heaven in My Book, the Bible. It not only tells you about heaven but gives you a detailed map of how to get there. All you need to know about getting your advanced ticket is right there. It even details how to get yourself ready for this trip of a lifetime. If you decide to sign up for heaven you simply adhere to the guidebook. Not only will you secure your place in heaven but I even give you a taste of heaven while on this earth. Joy, peace, and contentment are yours.
Get ready to go. Those who enjoy Disneyland the most are those who have poured over the literature and have planned out what they will do once there. They look forward to the trip with great anticipation. And they usually have a great time but then return to life as normal. Not so with My heaven. Heaven is a destination you will enjoy for eternity. Your preparations for this heavenly trip are more important than any other trip you could ever take. You write your own name on My heavenly roll by your daily choices that include Me and My Word.
God’s Question: Have you explored My Word and signed up?
God’s Promise: Heaven is designed just for you.
My Prayer to God:
I Praise You for the wonderful promise of heaven.
I am Sorry I too often live as though this earth were my home.
Thank You for Your Word that reminds me of my true home.
Please Help Me share the good news of heaven with all others
