INTRODUCTION

‘’For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy

toward them that fear him’’. Psalm.103:11. Heaven is the throne of the Living God where He rules the whole universe together with all that lives therein, which proved that the standard of it must be strictly higher than every other places which are created.

This has constitute that whosoever wish to live under the control of Heavenly kingdom must ready to comply with the commandments of He who created heavens and the earth, the Bible enlightened saying ‘’ Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city: For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, adulterers, adulteress, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loved and makes a lie.’’. Rev.22:14

                           THE STANDARD OF HEAVEN IS WITHOUT UNCLEANNES

 

STATEMENT AS FOLLOWS

Ephesians.5:27. ‘’ That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish’’. Genuine Christian always at consciousness of rapture, waiting for the sudden appearance of our Lord Jesus on air, just as He had professed saying ’’But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh’’. Matt.24:37-44.

Believers are encouraged to seat tight in well doing and become as the Lord had commanded saying ’’Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect’’. Matt.5:48. Why the standard of heavenly kingdom is on high side? It base on this perspective. It reminds me the life story of a man who saw small snake at the field and brought it into his house, making a cage and kept it there, feeding it with nourishing food. Until one faithful day that he could not find the snake in the cage. However, he thought the snake had gone back to the field where it was found, but it’s unfortunate that the man got snake bite in his hand, right away in his seating room, when he was trying to pick-up something that fell at the back of his television stand, and the man was rushed to the hospital for treatment. Here I make my point clear saying ‘’And there shall in no wise enter into it (HEAVEN) anything that defiled, neither whatsoever works abomination, or makes a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life’’. Rev.21:27. Many Christians are larking consciousness of heavenly kingdom, taking it as if God will compromise His standard from what He had said on who shall enter into it, or not enter, Lord Jesus confirm this as matter of fact saying ’’ .. Verily I say unto you. Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven’’. Matt.18:3. To get converted as little children shall justify anyone who wishes to make heaven, except one is deceived. I become more confused the way I seen some Christians living I don’t care life and less concerned about second coming of our Lord Jesus, as if all these written are mere word, and I quote ‘’If one miss heaven, definitely he/she cannot miss hell’’ because both where made to serve for the same purpose when one has finally departed the earth, whether going to heaven, or into the hell, it depends on individual works which determine where to spend their eternity.

 

Lord Jesus uncovered this fact saying ’’The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity: And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father, who hath ears to hear, let him hear’’. Matt.13:41-43. He that has an ear to hear should hear now when the hour has not pass, and withdraw from unrighteous works of the flesh that he/she may live, Lord Jesus did not hesitate by saying the fact unto believers, He said ’’Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out’’. Luke.13:24-28.

I wonder why men value material things more than life, or what people compare life with, taking life for granted in exchange of money? To this end Lord Jesus had encouraged believers saying ’Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than food and the body than clothing’’? Matt.6:25. Let’s be sincere beloved, is money greater than your life? Think about that and make amendment from those risk through the unrighteous pursuit which endanger life into second death, the Bible encourages a better part to follow ‘’ Thus said the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said: We will not walk therein’’. Jere.6:16.

To follow the modern civilized way which convenience in committing little sin had corrupted the system of this world, of which believers must quit such way and follow the righteous way of Christ the Son of God, that lead into life eternal. Lord Jesus commands every house of faith saying ’’Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leaded to destruction, and many there be which go in there-at: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leaded unto life, and few there be that find it’’. Matt.7:13-14. Despite the difficulties that surrounded the narrow way cannot be compare with sorrowful end that awaiting those who followed the broad way of sin, the Bible had disclosed how terrible shall it be in judgment to the wicked ‘’And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:  And the smoke of their torment ascended up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever received the mark of his name.  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus’’. Rev.14:9-12.

The fact remains that whosoever will not like to face such judgment should do according to the Lord’s saying now ‘’Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followed me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life’’. John.8:12. Therefore brethren chose the way of Christ and follow Him to the very end that you may live, for the standard of heavenly kingdom is without uncleanness forever: Cares to live a righteous life as the Lord teaches and be saved from the judgment Day to come, Amen.
