Heaven on Earth
Heaven on the Earth

By Wayne McDonald

Revelation 21:4, “God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain anymore, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.” If you have made Jesus Christ your savior this scripture is for you. If you have not given your life to Him today is your day. Pray this prayer: “Jesus I believe that you are the Son of God. You have been raised from the dead and I except you as my savior. Wash me in your blood and fill my life with your presence.

Heaven is a real city and we are going there. Not because we are perfect and do everything right one hundred percent of the time. But because of the blood of the crucified Lamb of God that has taken away our sin. I am looking forward to going to heaven. However, I plan on having days of heaven upon the earth right now!

In Deuteronomy 11:21 God’s word tells us that He will give us days of heaven upon the earth. Adam and Eve had days of heaven upon the earth before they sinned. God’s word tells us in Galatians 3:13 that Christ has redeemed us from the curse. If you read the entire chapter of Deuteronomy eleven you will discover what God has promised us. The word says that He will drive out our enemies and every place the sole of our foot shall tread He will give to us. God has promised us blessing. He has declared that all that we set our hand to will prosper.

If you are going to have days of heaven on the earth there needs to be a restructuring of your life. I am very particular when it comes to what and whom I allow in my home. There are lots of gates out there: the Internet, television, radio, magazines etc. I guard my heart by guarding what I watch, read and listen to. I want the atmosphere in my home to an atmosphere where God can speak to me and guide my life.

We need to realize that because we live on this earth we are going to go through tests for sure. But thank God as we walk in abedience to the Holy Spirit He gives us days of heaven on the earth.
