How to seek the kingdom of god-understanding the kingdom of god :

You may wonder what you need to do to enter the kingdom of heaven. There are many things you think will help, but in actuality it will be much easier than you consider it to be. In this article I am hoping to enlighten you on how you can do it.

First things first:

Firstly, you need to know that all are born as sinners. When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. And the purpose why God created us was broken. God wanted to have constant communion with man. Thereafter, Jesus came and paid the supreme sacrifice by laying down his life for us. He shed his blood so that we could be saved through him and be reconciled to God the father in heaven. The ultimate result will be Everlasting life in heaven.

What is everlasting life in heaven:

In most religions’, including in Buddhism, they have no everlasting life but reincarnation. The problem is you could be born again as an animal, bird or any other creature. But in Christianity, we have a much better alternative. How about everlasting life that you do not have to worry about being born again as an animal.

How to be a Christian-

To be a Christian, you need to accept him as your one and only god and savior. Jesus said unless you are born of spirit and water, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

To be born of water, you need to attend the “water baptism” that will be held regularly at the local church you attend. Just ensure that you take part in this ceremony once in your life. When I say once, it means there is no need to repeat it annually, just once in your lifetime. So is with being born of the spirit. For you to be born of the spirit, and you must recite this prayer.

To be born of spirit, you need to recite, “Oh Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner, I repent of all my sins, please forgive me ” as soon as you say this short prayer you become a christian and you are on your way to heaven. And there are No two ways about it.

Some pastors, misguide Christians saying you must never sin after you become a Christian and if you do you will not enter heaven. Remember, once you are saved, you are saved forever.

Even if you sin after becoming a “born again” Christian, there is a provision in Christianity, that as long as you ask for forgiveness from God, you will still be in heaven after your death. This is the guarantee you have as a Christian.

You must confess your sins regularly in your prayers and ask for forgiveness from God.

I am appalled at the incorrect preaching by some pastors, saying if you sin again you lose your salvation. This is totally incorrect. God states, that all of us live in a sinful body, till we reach heaven and receive a brand new heavenly body, as promised, we will sin ! And if asked God will forgive. You are saved by the grace of God. Salvation is a gift of God.

In John 14-2-3, Jesus said,

“There are many rooms in my Father’s house. If there weren’t, I wouldn’t have told you that I am going away to prepare a place for you, would I ? And since I’m going away to prepare a place for you, I’ll come back again and welcome you into my presence, so that you may be where I am.”

According to this scripture, Jesus promises our place in heaven. And he had to shed his blood on the cross and carry away our sins to hell, and rise again in three days to redeem s of sin.

He will come back to take us to heaven. He says there will be a room in heaven for all of us. How beautiful it will be for all of us to be in heaven at the presence of our mighty God as our shepherd.

In Revelation 21:4, it says that 

“God will wipe every tear from our eyes, and that there will be no more death, mourning, crying or pain, for older things has passed away” There will be no need to cry, no mourning, pain or even death in heaven. Those will be no more of that, it will be “older things”

We will not be sensitive anymore to any of these things that you felt on earth as we will be living in a ” heavenly body”

And in Revelation 7:16-17, it says,

“we will never be hungry, thirsty anymore. And the scorching heat of the sun will not beat us anymore. But our Lord will be our shepherd and he will lead us to springs of Living water. And God will wipe away every tear from our eyes.”

Why we will never go hungry, it’s because we will eat “manna” the heavenly bread, which is not available on earth. And there will be no need to thirst as god promise to provide “living water” to us. And as for crying, I believe there will be no need to cry in heaven let alone a need to have tears.

In Philippians 3:20 it says,

“that our citizenship is in heaven as we wait eagerly for our savior, Jesus Christ”

We are on earth temporarily. Actually this is only a ” Transit point ” in our journey to heaven. We will be everlasting, ever living Citizens of heaven. This will be greater than being a citizen of USA. Just imagine having a citizenship card of heaven with you. Or it could be a garland with the words “Heavenly citizen” that you will be carrying proudly with you.

And I believe you will be able to at least recognize your siblings, friends once you enter heaven. But you will Not be able to remarry your wife once in heaven, unfortunately. But I believe, you will be able to recognize your spouse regardless.

The coming of the Lord-

When Jesus comes back from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel, with a trumpet-call, to collect us we who are living will not be able to go join him first, rather those who are dead will rise first. Then we are who are alive will be caught up together with them, in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And we will be with the Lord forever.

Encourage each other with these words.
It is said the word of God will reach all corners of the earth before Jesus returns. So it is your duty, if led by the spirit to accept Jesus, as your Lord and savior. The alternative would be as they say re-birth as many times as other religions’ professor as for Christianity no place in Heaven but somewhere else not pleasant.

It is time the world look at this option seriously. Either you accept God, or face the consequences with no salvation. Which would you prefer, live your short life span with no hope ?

No, in Jesus, you are offered the everlasting life in Heaven. Heaven is a place beyond your imagination. Even for me, I am not sure but as the bible describes, it is a place beyond imagination.

Meaningless life-

And I can not wait to get there. What is the point living in this meaning less life, where there is no hope, but in the end a slowly decaying body. The older you get less work you are able to do. Your body cringes.

Sometimes you may wonder why God created you. The answer to that Only God knows. I have been asking God myself, in my daily prayers. He is yet to answer, but I know he will give me a clear answer once in heaven.

You may be thinking I am sick of life. No, what I am trying to get at is the meaninglessness of this life. You may find that here.

Ecclesiastes 1:1-3:

1 The words of the Teacher, son of David, king in Jerusalem: 2 “Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.” 3 What do people gain from all their labors at which they toil under the sun? “

 

So end this useless life and if you want to live an everlasting life, with no death, you need to go to heaven. And only way is to accept the lord.

Therefore, my brothers and sisters I appeal to you to be prudent and study our religion and if led by the Holy Spirit accept our God, and obtain your salvation.

Once you are “Born again” you will be entering Heaven by the Grace of God. By “Grace” I mean, you can not “buy” salvation. It is given “freely” to you.

Just imagine the carefree life you will spend, and an everlasting life in Heaven with Jesus as your Shepherd. You will “fly” like an angel. And you will have heavenly vehicle at your disposal.

Just imagine driving a heavenly Ferrari or even a heavenly BMW. It will better than what you make here on earth. You will not need any aircraft as you will be flying in space. And you will live in a heavenly room in a heavenly palace.

What religion offers all these, None.

Some people say they saw heaven, when they become unconscious in an accident and near death. And they say they saw Jesus. This can not be. I am certain, they saw a vision that resembles Jesus. But I do not believe you can physically see him as he is seated with the heavenly father in heaven.

I am not an expert to contradict what people see but if you read the bible, it does not state any temporary appearances by Jesus, before the second coming of Jesus.

Conclusion-

To enter heaven, you need to first confess your sins to Jesus and repent all of them. Salvation is a gift of God, you can not buy it or work towards it. For someone to place an end to this meaningless life, he or she must accept Jesus as the personal savior and God.Amen

  1. Nice post. I agree with you – it is impossible for us to be able to comprehend what it will be like in heaven. Similar, a new born baby can not comprehend what it is going to be like to leave it’s mother’s womb and enter this world.

    Once there, what happened in this life will seem meaningless. Yet, I still urge people to appreciate how blessed they are in this life. We have to trust the Lord that we are here for a reason. We have to be willing to follow His commands in order to have the best understanding of our purpose.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this wonderful website.
