"Home in the Body---Or Not?"

 

“Home in the Body---Or Not?”

 

Therefore, we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord.  We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.  So, we make it our goal to please Him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.       2 Corinthians 5:6, 8 ,9

 

Our physical bodies, houses the being that makes us who we REALLY are.  It is our spirit-soul that is living in this shell, we call a body.  And like any dwelling place or HOME, the body deteriorates with age.  And the spirit-soul vacates to another HOME, but this HOME is not like any other.  And if you want a HOME that will last for ALL ETERNITY, with UNLIMITED COMFORTS and BLESSINGS, and is known as HEAVEN, where Jesus Christ resides, along with ALL of God’s TRUE CHILDREN, then there are some things you MUST DO to be able to say, as the Apostle Paul said:  “We are CONFIDENT, I say, and would PREFER to be away from the body and at HOME with the Lord.”

 

We, who are the TRUE CHILDREN of God, can have this same feeling, because “we live by FAITH, not by SIGHT.” (v7)  And we have been promised an ETERNITY in Heaven, along with the LORD JESUS CHRIST.  The Lord Jesus said in John 14:2-3: “My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am.” 

 

So, when your “lease on life” is over and it’s time for you to MOVE on, will it be to a NEW HOME in Heaven, with ALL its COMFORTS and BLESSINGS, or will it be to the SLUMS of HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE?  If you want HEAVEN as your NEW HOME, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Believing with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and PREPARE to MOVE UP to your NEW HOME, HEAVEN, with the Lord Jesus Christ and ALL the other Saints.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
