It is a merciful Wednesday morning brethren and it will be good for me and you to say thank you to Him who has made it posible for us to see the light of the bright day. Father in heaven Jehovah is your name, We your children are so happy and grateful for the new day you have given us willfully. We say with a loud one voice that THANK YOU FOR TODAY in Jesus name. Amen. Knowingfully that you are faithful to accept our grateful heart offering of thanks this morning, we pray that you continue to be giving everyday to us in Jesus most precious name we pray. Amen.
Brethren in the Lord, there are things very expedient for you to know about the Lord. God want you and I to know that the life you live and the way do attend to very issues of life is recorded and will entually be rewarded. Some will want to ask: where is the reward coming from and even if there are any, where am I going to receive it? Friend, the reward here on earth for some and to everyone eventually before the throne of the Most High Jehovah on the day of judgment.
I belive you see reason the writer of the Revelation Apostle John the beloved reported the message of the Lord Jesus Christ. "See, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give to every man the outcome of his works." Revelation 22:12 (BBE). Irrespective that let us see what happen in the life of a very rich man and the extremely poor man in one of the gospel. One enjoy live to the brime and not expecting any other riches or betterness from anywhere while the other extremely poor man sort for an avenue to benefit from the rich but suffered the more not also having the knowledge that someone somewhere is keep records.
“Now there was a rich man dressed in purple and fine linen, living it up in luxury every day. But a poor man named Lazarus had been laid at his gate, covered with sores and longing to be fed with what fell from the rich man’s table. Besides, even the dogs were coming to lick his sores. It happened that the poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side. Then the rich man also died and was buried. And from Sheol, as he was in torment, he raised his eyes. And he sees Abraham far off, and Lazarus at his side. So he cried out and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me! And send Lazarus so he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, because I am suffering torment in this flame.’“But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your life you received your good things, even as Lazarus received the bad things. But now he is comforted here, and you are tormented. Besides all this, between us and you a great chasm is firmly set, so that those who want to cross over to you cannot, nor can those from there cross over to us. “Then the rich man said, ‘I beg you then, Father Abraham, send Lazarus to my father’s house! For I have five brothers to warn, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’ “But Abraham says, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets. Let them listen to them.’ “But he said, ‘No, Father Abraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’“But Abraham said, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced even if someone rises from the dead!’” Luke 16:19-31 (TLV)
The glory of heaven is a reward of our daily activities rendered either consciously or unconsciously here on earth. We get rewarded on a daily basis even though we all don't receive instantly for the Lord tends to package it for some and to others instant receiving. Now the matter is what are you doing and what do you feel you can receive from man or God? Let us do what is right and appropriate to another because what you do to that person you are doing for God who created that person in His image and likeness. God will then reward according to what you have invested in the heavens to you justly. Amen.
The rich man saw life as the end of all things but there is a glory fix for some people in heaven. Lazarus enjoy the glory of heaven after suffering the challenges of life and humiliation from nature. Brethen I don't know how far you have suffered from the challenges of live, but you are due for the glory of heaven now. You will start to enjoy blessing and favour from heaven in the name of Jesus of Nasareth. Amen. Try as much as possible to focus on the GLORY OF HEAVEN because it is the REWARD OF YOUR ACTIVITIES which can either benefit or be detrimental to you. Amen.
Glory to God it is midweek and the last Wednesday of the month of September 2016. Enjoy it and a good morning to you. Amen.
