Are you happy? If so, why are you happy and what makes you happy? Is your happiness earthly, of the world? Or do you have true, heavenly happiness? Does your happiness depend on your day and what you have -or- don’t have? Is your happiness temporary? Will it deceive you? Today, I am filled to share about my happiness and why I am happy!
The other day, a certain children’s song came into my head. The song has words that say, “This is my Father’s world”, and it made me think, because these words are not true. This is actually not my Father’s world. My Father is the Creator, just like the song says. He created the trees, the birds, and everything on this physical earth. However, this is not His world, He created it to give people a place to live, a place that’s temporary, so that they can know and understand what Truly is my Father’s world, the world that doesn’t pass, the world that is not the trees and the birds that we see, the world that is not physical, but spiritual.
This is not my Father’s world, because Christ did not come for this world, and He is coming again not for this world! The fate of this world is clearly written in Hebrews 1:10-11:
And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: they shall perish…. and they all shall wax old as doth a garment!
Clearly, even though He created the earth, His purpose is not for it because:
…The fashion of this world passeth away.
Many people believe that Christ will come on the day of Salvation and rule over this world, be the King and cast out all those who didn’t follow Him. However, the question is: where in the Bible does it say this?! But quite the opposite, after Jesus fed the 5 thousand people, they tried to find Him again to make Him a king, but what did Jesus do? He pretty much disappeared into a mountain. Because once again, He did not come for the earthly, for the physical, but He came to bring good news, to bring a teaching of Another world, His world, where He is truly King, a world that doesn’t pass. As it clearly says in Hebrews chapter 9, verses 26 and 28, of His purpose in coming the first and the second time:
But now once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself… So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation!
Not only will He appear to those marked as His, but as 1st Thessalonians 4:17 reveals:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them [the dead] in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord!
He will come, and those who are His children, will join Him and be with Him and reign in ANOTHER WORLD! But we have to obtain this now, while there is still a chance, we have to obtain this “ticket” like a stamp, a mark, a sign, that shows that we are His, so that when He comes “not for cleaning of sins” (Hebrews 9:28 – Russian translation), He may take those who have the mark, the ticket, already. That mark, a person living only by the Truth, a person sealed in Truth by God. 2nd Timothy 2:19:
…Having this seal, the Lord knoweth them that are His.
Those who are His are already sealed, meaning that they are not awaiting the coming of Christ to be cleaned from sins and finally made pure, but they are simply awaiting His return so that they may rise with Him into another world, out of this world. They obtained His seal during the day of salvation, which is not coming, but is already here, it is today! Today is the chance to become His, to become known by Him before it is too late, to become sin free! Because the sinners will not see God, to them He will on that day say “I know you not” (Luke 13:25-27). Only those who truly desire a new heart, who were crucified and rose again as a new creature in Christ with a new heart, pure and SIN FREE, will see God!
Only in death can we become sin free, and obtain the Heavenly, but it is not physical death, it is spiritual.
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
I believe that I died in Christ, died for this world that is not my Father’s, died for my old, sinful nature. I believe that I resurrected in Christ and only live through Him, I am His vessel and He uses me by His will, because my life is hid with Christ!
You might be asking: but if we don’t physically die, then what does it really mean, how do we die?
I believe that it is very simple, I simply rejected everything that was my own, everything that I lived for, everything I BELIEVED, I rejected the false word of the devil, that made me a sinner, and I believed that I am dead for all of those things which are untruth, they lost their power over me because I am dead for them! Philippians 3:8:
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ!
All of this already happened in me, not through my own doing, not by my worth – because like all people I was undeserving – but by the mercy of the Father in the day of salvation, that still stands today. I live not in this world, but in my Father’s world! So hurry to understand, to obtain it before it’s too late, because the time is coming to an end, the second coming is near. Seek and you will find! Do not join the fate of this world, but obtain eternity in my Father’s world.
