Is Your Name Written In Heaven?
(Are Your Hands Clean?)
There is this interesting scripture I often like to meditate on. Amazingly, every time I do , the spirit of God would minister to me that the essence of being called for the work of discipleship is to make us a “Candidate of Heaven!”
In Luke 10:20, immediately after the disciples had returned from evangelism, having performed remarkably well, Christ said to them: ”Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven!”
Obviously, Jesus was indifferent to all the great works the disciples thought would earn them commendation. This expression is intended for all to UNDERSTAND that: “our main reason to follow Jesus is to make it to Heaven! It is not just about impressing people by ‘engaging in all sorts of ungodly acts to be able to perform miracles’ and make name for ourselves in the ministry.”
Our Lord Jesus Christ is not interested in that big auditorium and the huge number of members in your ministry, they don’t count! So, for those of you seeking spiritual assistance from kingdom of darkness to grow your church and perform miracles, you should realize it’s just a wasted effort! You are simply doing yourself more harm than good!
This will lead us into the words of David in Psalms 24: 2-3. He said: “Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?” In other words; David is asking: who can qualify to be a candidate in Heaven?
Apparently, the word of God was abundantly clear when David answered by saying: “He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully!” Glory to God!
In essence, without clean hands and purely sincere heart, all miracles and great evangelism becomes “work of iniquity!” This will be the cause of disqualification to many Christian and church leaders in Heaven! See Mathew 7:23
Come to think of it, If we decide to take a count of all the Evangelists, Pastors, Prophets, Bishops, Shepherds, G.O’s etc around today, how many of us is having a “clean hand and pure heart?”
How do you explain a Pastor, Prophet and Shepherd who belongs to a secret society? How do you explain a Church Leader who go to seek spiritual assistance from the kingdom of darkness? How do you explain a Christian who cannot forgive but rather keep others in his heart? How do you explain a Church Leader who only pursues inordinate ambitions? And how do you explain a Christian who is full of hate and envy?
I’m afraid, if you find yourself in any of this situation, you need urgent divine intervention for restoration! It is best for you to humble yourself now and seek forgiveness from God. Otherwise, your name cannot be written in Heaven.
I pray the Lord will receive and forgive all who will return to Him in Jesus name…
