Đivo Matić: "How do you imagine Heaven?"

The Bible says that we can't, but I often think what life would be like without the Genesis curse. Imagine fruit trees and plants growing up with the energy of weeds. Imagine no pain, aging, suffering, disease and death.

One thing that helps me is to put aside the nebulous image of Heaven that most of us have, and to realize that God's Kingdom is physically coming to this earth (literally Heaven on earth), and His Will will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. We get to inherit this earth. God is gifting it to us; and it won't be as it is with its weeds, animals killing animals, its earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, etc.

Think of the most beautiful field of flowers, white-sanded beaches with clear blue water teeming with schools of bright yellow fish, of rows of fruit trees, amazing animals like the tall giraffe and the panda bear, of water falls, massive white clouds. Got it? Now toss them out as trash, compared to the things that God has prepared for those that love Him.

Jenny Bostwick Hill said, "I would like to know your view on the Sabbath. Did the Catholic church change the calendar and Saturday should be the Sabbath instead of Sunday? Also, should we be keeping the Sabbath? Thanks Ray! God bless!"

I rarely talk about this issue, and when I do it's not to argue with Sabbath-keepers. It's to make sure Christians don't get tangled up in their deception and in the bondage of legalism. Those who insist that others (besides themselves) should keep the Jewish Sabbath cannot point to even one verse in the New Testament where Christians are commanded to keep the Sabbath. If our salvation depended on resting on a certain day, then you would think that God would have taken the time to tell us, "Remember to keep the Sabbath holy." But it's not there, and any reference to it is negative—saying not to let any man tell you what day to keep, etc. I have found that Sabbath-keepers rarely plead with the unsaved to get right with God. Instead, they try and lay the Law on the backs of Christians to try and take away the liberty they have in Christ and steal their joy. So I gently ban them. This is because scripture tells me to avoid strivings about the Law.

"After Jesus died, the Apostles created Christian communism—'If you read the Sermon on the Mount of Jesus Christ, and the Moral Code of the Builder of Communism – they are identical.'"

Jesus said to love your enemies and to do good to those who despitefully use you --atheistic communism slaughtered 110 million people. They couldn't be more opposed one to another.

"The universe may have always existed. It does not need a Creator."

That is scientifically impossible--because of the 2nd law of thermodynamics. Everything is corrupting. If the universe was eternal it would have turned to dust billions upon billions of years ago.

God is eternal because He is not physical.

"How can a perfect God be wrath filled?"

A good judge should be furious if an unrepentant mass murderer has raped and viciously taken the lives of a number of innocent teenage girls. If he wasn't angered, he wouldn't be a good judge.

God is good (morally perfect) and He is therefore greatly angered by evil...and evil is defined as "sin."

What about liars? The Bible says all liars shall be thrown into a lake of fire (molten magma) to be burned forever. What kind of judge sentences a generally good person to an eternity of being roasted alive in molten magma just for telling a little white lie? Only a very wicked judge.

You call liars generally good people? What makes liars better than thieves since they generally go together? What's the difference with the person who steals 1 naira and the person who steals 10 thousand naira from the bank, are they not all called thieves? Likewise, all liars, it doesn't matter whether it is little or white lies, If the law says all liars shall end up in hell fire then you will have to believe Him or else you will be calling God a liar. Below is today's devotion that deals with fate of all liars.

DAMNED THROUGH LYING

TEXT: JEREMIAH 20:1-6

"And thou, Pashur, and all that dwell in thine house shall go into captivity: and thou shalt come to Babylon, and there thou shalt die, and shalt be buried there, thou, and all thy friends, to whom thou hast prophesied lies" (Jeremiah 20:6).

"Show me a man who is habitually or frequently a liar and you show me a man who will have his portion in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone. I do not care to which denomination of Christians he may belong. I am sure he is none of Christ's. And it is very sad to know that there are some in all fellowships, who have this great and grievous fault that you cannot trust them in what they say", said Charles H. Spurgeon.

The people of Israel had forsaken God and had gone into idolatry; they had also built high places for other gods where their sons were offered in sacrifices. Jeremiah was sent by God to warn the people of the impending wrath of God. Instead of repentance, their leader, Pashur, convinced the people with lies and hardened their hearts. He got a change of name and God's judgment to witness the fulfilment of the prophecy and to die in exile.

For some people today, lying is an insignificant offence. They lie and call it white, black, diplomatic, political and convenient lies. Spouses lie to one another, children to parents and vice-versa. Politicians lie to get cheap votes and renege on their electioneering promises. The most absurd is that the trend is now visible in the house of God. Some Christians cannot be trusted because they tell lies to increase and sustain their membership. Others tell lies for what they will gain.

As a true believer, you must seek the Spirit of Truth – the Holy Ghost - Who will guide you into all truth. Also, you need to abide in what you already know in Christ. The coming of the Lord is at hand. Therefore, do not allow the spirit of lies to deprive you of your sonship right and make you to miss heaven.

God did it that way for our own sake. He could have done it all in a second but He wanted us to work for 6 days and rest on the 7th. He didn't need to rest just as He didn't need to "observe evenings and mornings" before He recorded it for us. cool

My read of the Bible also suggested something atrocious- That Ted Bundy, the serial killer of over 30 women, is in heaven, while Dr. Albert Schweitzer, the great humanitarian who devoted his life to alleviating the suffering of impoverished Africans, is in hell. It is consistent to make this argument from the text of the New Testament, which suggests that no man is worthy of heaven without accepting the grace offered by Jesus’ death on the cross and that any person still alive, no matter their history, can have his sins absolved. Bundy did accept Jesus before his execution and Schweitzer did not accept Jesus as being divine. This outlandish scenario caused me to question the morality of the New Testament, but more importantly, the likelihood that a god would use such an injudicious system of reward and punishment. ~ Michael Runyan

It is simple. Supposing you have two debtors owing up to £20 trillion each. The first person (A) believes he can pay back his debt while working at £20 per hour. The second person (B) admits there is no way that he can possibly pay back his debt and doesn't even make an attempt. There happens to be a benevolent wealthy man who promised to pay the debts of both men by issuing a blank cheque. Mr. B takes up the offer while Mr. A insists that he doesn't need the free gift, that he will pay it all off by himself. Mr. B becomes debt free while Mr. A remains a slave to the debtor. Now tell me what's wrong with the morality of this scenario?

God and Parachute

An atheist (in answer to a parachute analogy) said, "Except that planes and parachutes are real and God and the afterlife are not."

Ray replied: The truth is that you don't know if there is an afterlife. For this God-less world it's the biggest of mysteries. But the Christian knows what happens when we die. We know because we have it from the highest Authority on this earth—God's Word. It tells us that death is an appointment, and that after death we must face God in Judgment. That will be a fearful thing if you don't have a Saviour. Every day more than 150,000 people die. Please seek God today. Every argument you have will be dismissed the moment you come to know Him.

"So why the Christian God? Why not one of the other thousands?" Jason King

There's no such thing as "the Christian God." There is only one Creator who revealed Himself to Moses, and promised to destroy man's greatest enemy—death. He then became one human being—Jesus of Nazareth and destroyed the power of death. Now, all who repent and trust alone in Him—whether they are black or white, Jew or Gentile, Muslim or Hindu, atheist, or agnostic may receive forgiveness of sin, and the gift of everlasting life.

"An atheist doesn't believe that nothing created everything."

Atheists say that they have "no belief in a god." If I have a car and have no belief in a maker of the car, it, by default, means that I think that the car made itself--or that no one made it.

It is scientificially impossible for nothing to create anything.

Nostradamus was a lapsed Jewish Catholic that read his Bible in secret and stole its prophecies, without giving God attribution.

Anyone who is ignorant of Bible prophecy will be impressed with the prophecies of Nostradamus. The rest of his ramblings are so nebulous anyone can look down through history and hang anything on them. That’s why Nostradamus is a billion dollar industry.

"How do I know God exists?"

There are at least two evidences. One is creation. It is scientifically impossible for Nature to create itself.

The second is your conscience. God has given you moral knowledge of right and wrong. It is shaped by society, but given to you by your Creator, so you are without excuse for your crimes against His Law.

"Jews laugh at Christianity."

Jesus was Jewish. The disciples were Jewish. The first 13,000 converts were Jewish, Christianity was birthed in the land of the Jews, the New Testament was written by Jews, and Christians believe that the Jewish scriptures are God's Word. I'm Jewish, and any Jew who believes the God-breathed Old Testament will embrace Jesus of Nazareth as their promised Messiah.

"Pascal's wager is a flawed argument, thoroughly debunked."

It is impossible to debunk Pascal's famous wager. He simply said that the Bible says that if you come to Christ you gain everlasting life. If you don't, you end up in Hell.

By becoming a Christian you can't lose. If you are right you gain everlasting life, and if you are wrong and there's no afterlife, you won't even know it. So it's a win/win situation for the Christian and lose/lose situation for the ungodly.

Our movie "Audacity" puts this question into perspective:

God created us as free moral agents. We look like God mentally, socially, and spiritually but not physically because God is a Spirit. God may reveal Himself to us in different physical forms which we can comprehend but we cannot fully see Him in His glory until we get to heaven.
