Abiding

Filling “Your Account” in Heaven! [podcast]


Might you choose to pray as did the apostles? – “Increase our faith” (Luke 17:5).

Not only should we ask God to “Increase our faith” but also to teach us to be faithful to Him. God will bless those who are faithful to Him – those who are loyal and serve Him obediently through thick or thin, in riches or poverty, through sunshine or rain.

Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.” Psalms 101:6

Does this verse above remind us of the words of 2 Chronicles 16:9?

WHO desires God’s gaze upon them?

I do!

“For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9

Christ is Our only Riches!

The sum total of the riches

we truly have

is Christ.

All else is phantom, passing.

A mere figment.

WHAT is in our hand today was given to us by our LORD, to whom we shall give account (Romans 14:12). It is from our LORD that we will hear either …

Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Matthew 25:23

or to the unfaithful He shall declare…..

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:” Matthew 25:41

When we use this time, talents, and treasures that He gave, for His glory, He increases that which we are made ruler over, and the eternal rewards stack up. Read Jesus’ parable of the talents recorded in Matthew 25.

“His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Matthew 25:23

Rewards in eternity are going to be based upon our faithfulness to God in this life. Whew! See Matthew 6:19-21. There’s an “account” exclusively in your name in Heaven beloved.

“Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction. 15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. 16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. 17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to YOUR ACCOUNT. 18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God. 19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:14-19

Did you notice that GOD just told you that your have an “ACCOUNT” waiting to be filled in His heavenly domain? – “your account.”

Paul spoke in terms of helping Christ’s saints fill that reward coffer, to lay up their treasure in Heaven, which shall never stop giving. Only those dividends are treasures for you for all eternity. Paul was blessed to receive the needed help and yet he didn’t just want their money, he desired them to be vested in that which is eternal, the kingdom of our LORD Jesus which will be the only kingdom standing when all the others are soon vanquished! This is exactly what our LORD taught in Matthew 6:19-21; Luke 12, 16, etc..

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” Daniel 2:44

When the smoke clears Christ’s everlasting kingdom will be the only kingdom standing! This should quicken us further to live today for our LORD’s glory – to go afresh to Him in thanksgiving and repentance, asking Him to imbue your innermost man with His holy fear and to grant you to have a heart of flesh and to help you love Him more (John 3:30)!

With our eternity with the everlasting God (whose we are) in view, it’s much easier to walk through “the sufferings of this present time” (Romans 8:18).

“Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.” Philippians 4:11-12

We are blessed today to abide in Christ, to view the end of our earthly life as the beginning of an eternity with the Almighty Jesus Christ and the Father. The inaugural celebration at the marriage supper of the Lamb is at the door saints (Matthew 22; Revelation 19).

“For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:6-8

Someone may be thinking…. “Okay, got it but what do I do? What can I personally do?” As your mere brother in Christ, I’d answer that by saying: Begin in prayer, fresh surrender, asking God to bless His children around you. Begin a list of those you are lifting in prayer each morning in your time with God. Then, get involved with those doing Jesus’ Great Commission. Here, go read this: Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-20 KJB.

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” Psalms 90:12

Your Prayer to God: (Would you dare lift your heart and hands to Heaven today and say something like) “Jesus, I am not my own. I am all Yours – bought with the price of Your very and precious blood. Do in me as Thou will dear LORD. I love You LORD Jesus. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
