You Are Not Invited

Updated on May 24, 2011

 

                        YOU ARE NOT INVITED

 

An historian is a prophet in reverse: Thousands of years back, Satan and some (fallen) angels rebelled against God. No single human being was involved when the bible says, And war broke out in Heaven, Michael and his angels engaging in battle with the Dragon. The Dragon fought and so did his angels; but they were defeated, and there was no longer any room found for them in Heaven. The great Dragon, the ancient serpent, he who is called 'the Devil' and 'the Adversary' and leads the whole earth astray, was hurled down: he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him.’ - Revelation 12:7 – 9 (WNT).

 

 Casting the devils into the earth was a temporary action; their total and final annihilation is not even hell, but the lake of fire – and the Devil, who had been leading them astray, was thrown into the Lake of fire and sulphur where the Wild Beast and the false Prophet were, and day and night they will suffer torture until the Ages of the Ages.’ – Revelation 20:10 (WNT)

 

Originally, God did not make hell for any human being. Why should a loving Father who delights in His children make a lake of fire for the children? If God should condemn Israel for throwing their children to (the fire of) Molech, wouldn’t it be wrong for Him to do the same? Just think about this and don’t jump into conclusion yet.

 

Although hell and the lake of fire are erroneously mixed together, the bottom-line is that neither of these was initially made for man, the image of God. The lake of fire was made as a punishment for Satan and his demons that is why there is no singular invitation from hell to anybody throughout the entire bible. The Scripture only warns us not to follow the devils to their final destination – Lake of fire. Unfortunately painful, many will follow the devils via I – don’t – care attitude of theirs.

 

 Since you were not part of their rebellion (the war of Revelation 12), why would you want to share in their punishment (the lake of fire)? Therefore, I am reminding you through this hub that you were not invited to Hell. Normally, it is always easier to enter a place where you were invited, than a place where you were not invited. Stop and think about this for a moment!

 

The entire Bible is full of invitations from the heart of God, calling you to come into heaven (Matthew 22:9; Mark 16:15; John 14:2-3; John 3:16 Acts 2:36 – 40; 17:30 – 31, etc).

 

 Devil’s lie is to make you believe that it is difficult to make heaven. This upside down mentality of heaven is a ruse of the devil to make you quit believing. Friends, this is not true, indeed, it is more difficult to enter hell than to enter heaven. You will have to gatecrash into hell (with a lot of wickedness); because you were not invited. However to enter heaven, all you need to do is to accept God’s personal invitation, in the person of Jesus Christ and allow Him to write your name (not your deeds) in the Lamb’s Book of Life. That’s simple!

 

But whatsaith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.’   – Romans 10:8 -10

 

Heaven is the City of God; Hell is a desert of pain. Many people are going into heaven. People like you are making heaven their eternal destination. On the last day, many millions of people will make heaven, there, life will continue like this, only that it will be more glorious!

 

 

‘After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;’ – Revelation 7:9

 

The deceived rebels who blindly follow Satan and his demons will be cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:15; 21:8).Today do not reject such a great salvation; accept the invitation of God in the person of Jesus Christ. Nobody can get to the Father except by this same Jesus Christ (John 14:6). He is the Door!

 

‘And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.’  – Revelation 22:17

 

This is where YOU ARE INVITED, this is the City of God and this is Heaven. If you will say ‘yes’ to God’s invitation, simply pray this prayer; believing every word you say therein:

 

Dear Jesus Christ,

I am grateful that you died for my sin and you are alive for my righteousness. I am giving my heart to you now as I declare you today as my personal Saviour and Lord. Please cleanse me with your blood, write my name in the book of life, and send me the Holy Spirit as you promised. Connect me back to God the Father, and give me assurance of salvation as it is written in your word And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’(Acts 2:21).Thank you for answering this prayer, I shall worship and serve you forever (Amen).

 

Congratulations! You can now experience God on a daily basis. He is your Father.

 

Preparing the Bride,

      You are so right, you have to let him raise from your heart, mind and your spirit. And always accept him in your life, he accept us as his children's and he love us. Let me share, My Pastor had a sermon at church a couple months ago. And he ask the congregation, do we have a ticket to ride? And we was wondering what he is he talking about. What he was saying, Do we have a ticket ride to go into the Kingdom. We all need a ticket.....Very Good Hub!!!!!!God Bless

      I love that Jesus has given us His personal invitation to partake of God's blessings and kingdom. What an honor indeed. I appreciate this lovely Hub. It is very inspiring. Joy in Jesus, Hyphenbird.

      Bro.Segun,

      Great Hub.

      Isn't it a wonderful thing to know that to this place of damnation, this place of weeping and gnashing of teeth,we were not invited. This is not the place spoken of by Jesus when He said,"In My Father's house are many mansions. I go to prepare a place for you, that where I am, you may be also.

      God Bless
