TEXT: JOHN 14: 1-7
KEY VERSE: John 14:2 - In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
Excerpts from Sister Linda’s Testimony…..
“As we walked together, I looked behind Jesus and saw the mighty angels behind Him. When I walked down the street of heaven, it was bright, glorious, wonderful, and paved richly with gold. Then, we arrived at different sections of houses. It contained numerous houses of different kinds. I saw mansions! The place was so full of peace and joy! I saw great streets and flowers. None of them was growing taller than the other. Even the flowers in heaven have order. The clear water of the river of life flows all through heaven. There is wonderful breeze to enjoy. The air in heaven is neither cold nor hot. There are all kinds of beautiful buildings in heaven.
As we walked through a particular section, Jesus asked if I knew the owners of those buildings. I said, “No, Lord Jesus.” He said, “These are the Believers that died, and are in hell.” I wondered, ‘Hey! Who are the people that missed these houses?” He said, “They are people that were once in Me, believed in Me, and loved Me, but later backslid not knowing they would soon die. They backslid and entered back into the world. The world carried them away and Satan hijacked them. They didn’t know they were passing through their last temptation on earth. Sometimes, I give hard times to people to test their faith before I call them home. They don’t know they are passing through their last test. They died in their sins without repentance and missed heaven. They are now in hell. Let me show you another place.”
We started to walk and I saw different kinds of mansions. Then Jesus said, “These are for My people on earth – people that are evangelizing for Me, people that are winning souls for Me.” And I said, “Ah Lord Jesus? Just to evangelize and win souls for You?” And He said, “Yes. I am talking about those that wake up and all they want is to make Me happy. They always ask Me for the grace to win souls. They spend their own money for the work of God. They organize crusades and do many things. They seek Me first, because they know that everything is in Me. They use their own money, their own time, their own energy. They don’t look for money. They don’t look for anything. They go out and win souls! They use their own time. Sometimes when they evangelize to somebody and the person says, “Well, I don’t have transportation money to come to church. They use their last money to transport that person to church.”
Thought for the day: Your labour in Christ is not in vain.
Song for the day: It pays to serve Jesus, I speak from my heart...
Bible reading for the day: Isaiah 65-66; 2 Thessalonians 1
