Greetings to all,
Hebrews 12:22 – “But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels.”
Hebrews 13:14 – “For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come.”
Philippians 3:20 – “For our citizenship is in heaven.”
Have you thought about what it is to be a citizen of heaven? There are those who go to great lengths to become citizens of another country. People are dying everyday trying to reach a country where they feel they can have a better life.
While all this struggle is going on there is a passport available to them to bring them into a country that is far greater than anything they could imagine.
This passport has blood sprinkled all through it. It is the stamp of blood that declares your entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven. This passport is not free; it will cost you your life. It is the only passport worth dying for.
Like any other passport, heaven’s passport must be examined. If there is a note on it declaring your qualifications to enter heaven, such as your good works, the passport will be stamped “invalid”.
This passport must be declared. Revelation 12:11 says, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”
Declare Jesus as Lord, and the sprinkling of His blood will grant you a glorious entrance into Heaven’s best.
Just like entering another country there are declaration forms to fill out declaring what you are bringing into the country. May your form have a long list.
Please Declare Valuables entering with you:
Tom, Joe, Sam, Susan, Joyce, Andrew, Carl… I have declared my passport to all these and they have received their own.
Love to all… pb
