Are you Going to Live in Heaven Someday?
King James Version
15 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
Let us Pray
The Most important question you will ever ask yourself or those you care about is this:
Are you going to Live in Heaven some day? When I used to use the Evangelism Explosion model for witnessing which came out in the 1970s, the Big question you could use was:
If, God Forbid, you were to die today and find yourself standing in front of the gates of Heaven, Peter there asks you a question: Why should I let you into heaven? What would be your answer?
I have asked this question hundreds of times over the years and the non-Christian usually responds with this answer:
“Well, I think I have been pretty good, I think God will weigh all my good and bad deeds and if my good deeds outweigh my bad ones, then I believe God will let me into Heaven!”
You have all heard the accolades at Funerals, He was a good man, or woman, they would give you the shirt off their back! They had a good heart!
The problem with this answer is that Peter will tell you, I am sorry, that is the wrong answer, please proceed to the elevator over there and press the DOWN button, for you are going DOWN!
David wrote Psalm 15 thinking about the possibility of dwelling, or visiting the home of God someday, the Tent of God! David was asking the question, Who shall go to Heaven?
This morning we shall see from the text that only those who have the fruits of the Spirit are heaven bound and that you cannot have the Holy Spirit unless you take care of something that God will not allow in Heaven, your sin! Don't miss a very special message about how we can know that we are going to Heaven and if you have a friend or Family Member who needs Christ, this is the message they must hear!
It is a Joy being your Pastor
