Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 28 November 2021 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Journey To Heaven

TOPIC: The Journey To Heaven (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 28 November 2021)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Corinthians 15-16

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 16:19-31

19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:

28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

MEMORY VERSE: “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.” Psalms 139:7-8

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:
The route to heaven is only visible and accessible to those who are prepared to live a holy life.

PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
THE DEVIL WILL NOT HARVEST YOUR SOUL IN HELL AND THE VICTORY OF JESUS ON THE CROSS SHALL NOT BE A WASTE IN YOUR LIFE, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

Mountain Top Life MESSAGE:
Heaven is real. The story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16:19-31 brings home to us the reality of heaven. While the rich man found himself in hell, Lazarus was taken to the bosom of Abraham by the angels. Matthew 18:10 tells us that angels abide with God, the Father in heaven, while Matthew 22:30 says that when we get to heaven, we shall be like the angels of God.

Heaven is the place of everlasting bliss. Our stay on earth is temporary. We are like sojourners on the earth and our proper home is heaven. In John 14:2-3, Jesus clearly told us that in His Father’s house, there are many mansions and that He was going to prepare a place for us and He would come back to take us to be with Him.

If our stay here on earth is a journey to heaven, we must prepare to reign with Christ. Unfortunately, many are not preparing for this journey and many who have died did not prepare for the journey to heaven; hence, they were caught unawares in hell fire. Planning is an important aspect of preparation. Failure to plan is planning to fail. In Luke 14:28-29, Jesus gave an illustration of planning before embarking on a project. He explained that no man would build a house successfully without first determining the cost.

The earth is not our last bus stop and every journey has a destination. The second step is to make up our mind to succeed on this journey by living right with God.

Living a holy life is not negotiable. We must work towards it by putting our flesh under the subjection of the Holy Spirit. Going to heaven is not automatic, we must earn it. What must we do on this journey to make it a success? We must accept Jesus as our Lord and personal Saviour.

We must be patient and diligent in our walk with God. We must crucify our flesh and have a good relationship with Him. In addition, we must avoid all forms of sin which can drag us away from God and take us to hell fire.
