God doesnít send anyone to heaven or hell. People do it themselves. Heaven is made out of the word of God. In John 1:1 it says that Jesus is the Word of God, so heaven is made out of God. It boggles the mind. Heaven will just bounce off anyone in sin; no one will be keeping them out at all. I am betting that sin will just cause hell to draw them to itself. They will follow that drawing all on their own, like they did on the earth when they had a choice to choose sin or the word. When we get into sin, and then try to put the Word into us, whether itís listening to preachers teaching the Word, or get into the Word on our own, that Word will tend to just bounce off of us, instead of going in. Sin will clog us up, so the Word has trouble getting inside. We will get a little Word, but not tons of it, like we need.
When we are able to start getting the sin out of our lives, then the Word stops bouncing off of us and goes in deeper, and deeper, planting strong, large roots where the enemy canít get our hearts again in his darkness. The Light, or the Word will dispel, and destroy, and obliterate the darkness, and sin that is trying to destroy our lives.
The Word will create in us a craving, a good craving, and a hunger that only God can fill. Like eating salt, the Word will make one thirsty. We are the salt of the earth trying to make the people of the earth thirsty. Then we fill them with living water that bubbles up, making them want increasingly, MORE and MORE, and then they get addicted to the Word, instead of the darkness and sin that is used like a weapon to destroy their soul, with its mind, and emotions.
Rom 7:8 But sin, finding opportunity in the commandment [to express itself], got a hold on me and aroused and stimulated all kinds of forbidden desires
Rom 7:11 For sin, seizing the opportunity and getting a hold on me [by taking its incentive] from the commandment, beguiled and entrapped and cheated me, and using it [as a weapon], killed me.
The Word of God IS substance. Faith is substance. The word is creative power, not has creative power, IS literally creative power. God created the heavens and the earth out of the Word of God. The substance that is in the word of God is what God used to create with. We pour the word into our heart, and that word mixed in and with our spirit, and having the anointing on thatword, and then spoken out of our mouth will create whatever we need.
The enemy will take something that looks like fun, and is fun, and will wrap it up, to entice us, and then lay it for a trap to ensnare us. We never see the evil waiting to pounce on our minds, our wills, our emotions, and our bodies. We walk into his trap, and think we are having a fun time. Until itís too lateÖ.
The enemies surround us and very subtly, so we donít even realize they are there, they begin the process of sucking our life away. Their mission, or main objective is to steal the Word from our heart, to suck us bone dry, if they can. That is their assigned task. If they can suck the Word out of our hearts, then they can make us sick, and there will be no Word in us to heal us. They can put poverty on us, and steal everything we have, because there will be no Word in our heart to stop them. They can and will put fear of loss, all kinds of fears, depression, sorrow, mourning, distress, despair, wanting to die, and in some cases, suicide spirits, anger, hate,
un-forgiveness, strife, gossip, putting others down Ė criticism to make ourselves look better when we really feel lousy about who we are, and the list goes on. Who is going to stop them from doing these things? There is only one thing, or Person Who CAN stop them. He placed all of what we need literally inside of the Word of God. Our healing is in the Word. Literally. Our help is in the Word. Our deliverance is in the Word. Our needs being met are in the Word. Our freedom from sin is in the Word. Our freedom from bondage, depression, fear, strife, unhappiness is where? In the Word, my brothers and sisters. If we want to be free from the darkness that surrounds us, our help will be found in only one placeÖ The Word of God. Put the Word of God into our spirit, renew the mind, and we will have everything that we need. EVERY need, and every crisis will be MET!
God Has Not Rejected You
No matter what you have done, you can always run to God, fall to your knees, and repent. He will always accept you, and forgive you. God has not given us a spirit of fear to be in bondage again, but He has given unto us a spirit of love, and of a sound mind, and a well-disciplined mind.
God has prepared for you a feast in His Presence. Come to the table of your God and eat of His feast. He has called you to Himself. Come and eat of the feast prepared for you. He loves you so very much. There is nothing you could do that would make Him not love you.
