The Best Is Yet To Come

1 Corinthians 2:9 (KJV)… states that “eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.” In other words… ”THE BEST IS YET TO COME.”  There are “glories” that come to the Christian who has left this life.  Paul speaks of these “glories” in 1 Corinthians 15:40-44. Paul uses the word “glory” seven times, and calls attention to the different phases of glory as seen in the sun, moon, and stars. He then takes these “glories” and indicates that there is a difference in “glory” between the earthly physical body and the heavenly body. Our earthly body is corruptible and ceases to exist after we die… the heavenly body lives on… Our heavenly body corresponds to the earthly body, as far as identity and likeness goes, but it is spiritual and incorruptible in nature and quality. Human language cannot describe the “glories” that are waiting for Believers. The Apostle John, in Revelation 22:1-6, saw seven glories for the Believers in heaven. We want to look at these “glories” very briefly… THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

The glory of a perfect environment Revelation 22:3 (ASV)… “The throne of God and the Lamb shall be therein.” None of the imperfections of earth will be there. Nothing that has cursed mankind shall exist there.  Whenever the Prophets saw a crisis in their nation, they almost always were transported in a vision where they saw the throne of God (note… Isaiah 6:1-6, Ezekiel 1:1, 26-28, Daniel 7:9, Revelation 4:1-3). Why? God re-assured them as to whose world it was and showed them the right throne. The first glory that the believer experiences when they arrive in heaven is the throne of God. THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

The glory of perfect service… Revelation 22:3… “And His servants shall serve Him.” The word “serve” means… “to minister unto God… worship… give honor.” Many people serve the Lord here on earth with handicaps such as criticism from others… lack of finances… pressures… anxieties… persecutions… and a lot more. Yes, they love the Lord deeply… and they see a need and try to fill it. There will be freedom from earth’s restrictions… This is the second glory the believers will experience … Pure worship and service. BUT THE BEST IS YET TO COME…

The glory of perfect vision… Revelation 22:3… “And they shall see His face.” No longer is God’s face (presence) hidden. Often on earth, His presence is not seen or felt because of imperfections in the human character. But in the perfect environment of heaven, there is no sin and the believer experiences the glory of “seeing God.” 1 Chronicles 16:27 speaks about glory, honor, and power in God’s presence. Exodus 33:13-15 speaks of rest in His presence. Psalm 31:20 speaks of security in His presence. Psalm 16:11 speaks of joy in His presence. Acts 3:19 speaks of refreshing in His presence. THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

The glory of perfect character… Revelation 22:4“And His name shall be in their foreheads.”  The “name” stands for character. Your name here on earth is a prophetic insight into your character. For example… my name is “George”… the meaning is… “a seed planter, a farmer, a tiller of the soil”… I like the phrase “growth facilitator” better… My name is a picture of my character and ministry. Not being in heaven as yet, my character and ministry are not perfect. In heaven, God puts His name in my forehead …  i.e… His character becomes my character. Here in this life, we struggle to perfect our character. In heaven, the struggle is over. THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

The glory of a perfect day… Revelation 22:5… “And there shall be no night there.” Night speaks of darkness and all its “hidden works.” These hidden works cause sorrows of every kind. The glory of heaven is that it’s a perfect day… there is no darkness.  Nothing can go wrong when everything is righteous and free from defilement. We all long for the glory of a perfect day. We do try to make a good day here on earth and often we fail. THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

The glory of perfect light… Revelation 22:5… “For the Lord God giveth them light.”  Note… Revelation 21:23 (KJV)… “For the glory of God did lighten it and the Lamb is the light thereof.” The word “candle” refers to man-made light… artificial light. With all the great sermons preached today, it’s still “candle” light.  THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

The glory of a perfect rule… Revelation 22:5… “And they shall reign forever and ever.” Here on earth, we reign with limitations… We start and stop… Our work is related to time, minutes, hours, days, months, and years. How do you describe forever and ever? After death, all time disappears. We are free from hindrances. No one in heaven can say, “I have no time.” We reign as kings forever. THE BEST IS YET TO COME.

THE BEST IS YET TO COME… There is a glory that is beyond earthly glory… and it is waiting for us… Paul spoke of the Holy Spirit in 2 Corinthians 4:1-10 and he states that God gave us the “earnest” of the Spirit… The word “earnest” means… a pledge of something given in advance, as security for the rest that is to come… God gave the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost… While you wait for the glory that is yet to come… be filled with the Spirit… walk in faith and love and hope… keep pressing on.

Luke 10:17 - "And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name."

It was the power in the name of Jesus plus the disciples' faith in that power that made the demons subject unto them. This can clearly be seen in Acts 19:13-17 where certain Jews called on the name of Jesus in an effort to cast demons out of a man. They used the name of Jesus, but it didn't work because they had not put faith in that name.

These Jews were itinerants who used incantations to effect deliverance for people who were demon possessed. The first-century historian, Josephus, wrote of an exorcism that he witnessed in the presence of Vespasian and many of his soldiers. The exorcist supposedly followed a ritual passed down from King Solomon to effect the deliverance. There is no doubt that men throughout all history have tried to resist demonic spirits, but as this example proves, only Jesus and those who have received His life are successful.

Those who relegate demonic spirits to the realm of superstition do not believe in the entire Word of God. The Gospels alone contain over 90 references to the devil or devils (demons). The Apostle Paul said when writing to these people in Ephesus, "We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Eph. 6:12). The devil and demons do exist, but all believers in Jesus share in His total victory over them.

The name of Jesus is not magic. It does not work like a charm. As Peter said, "His name, through faith in his name" (Acts 3:16) is what brings results.

John 2:15, "And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables."

Jesus brought the message of "love your enemies" to the world and demonstrated it in such a way that some people have forgotten instances like this when Jesus showed anger. Anger can also be a godly emotion.

Ephesians 4:26, tells us to "be angry and sin not". This means there is a righteous type of anger which is not sin. This is why we are told to hate evil (Psalm 45:7; Psalm 119:104, Psalm 119:163; Proverbs 8:13; Romans 12:9).

Ephesians 4:26, goes on to say, "Let not the sun go down upon your wrath". That doesn't mean that it's alright to be angry during daylight as long as we repent by nightfall. Rather, it is speaking of this righteous type of anger. We are never to let it rest. Don't ever put it to bed, but keep yourself stirred up against the things of the devil.

The key to distinguishing between a righteous anger and a carnal anger is to discern our motives and the object of our anger. Godly anger is directed at the devil with no consideration of self. If we are angry with people, it's carnal (Ephesians 6:12). And if our motivation is self-serving, then it's wrong.

Is My Sacrifice Living?

By Oswald Chambers

Abraham built an altar . . . ; and he bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar . . . —Genesis 22:9

This event is a picture of the mistake we make in thinking that the ultimate God wants of us is the sacrifice of death. What God wants is the sacrifice through death which enables us to do what Jesus did, that is, sacrifice our lives. Not— “Lord, I am ready to go with You . . . to death” (Luke 22:33). But— “I am willing to be identified with Your death so that I may sacrifice my life to God.”

We seem to think that God wants us to give up things! God purified Abraham from this error, and the same process is at work in our lives. God never tells us to give up things just for the sake of giving them up, but He tells us to give them up for the sake of the only thing worth having, namely, life with Himself. It is a matter of loosening the bands that hold back our lives. Those bands are loosened immediately by identification with the death of Jesus. Then we enter into a relationship with God whereby we may sacrifice our lives to Him.

It is of no value to God to give Him your life for death. He wants you to be a “living sacrifice”— to let Him have all your strengths that have been saved and sanctified through Jesus (Romans 12:1). This is what is acceptable to God.

Man Testifies How Jesus Saved Him From Serving Satan - Video

Jesus speaking (through the Message Bible translation):

"But if it’s God’s finger I’m pointing that sends the demons on their way, then God’s kingdom is here for sure. When a strong man, armed to the teeth, stands guard in his front yard, his property is safe and sound. But what if a stronger man comes along with superior weapons? Then he’s beaten at his own game, the arsenal that gave him such confidence hauled off, and his precious possessions plundered. This is war, and there is no neutral ground. If you’re not on my side, you’re the enemy; if you’re not helping, you’re making things worse" (Luke 11:20-23).

John Ramirez video testimony to the fact that "God's kingdom is here for sure":

Understand the power of prayer. Christ Jesus is the Most High God (El Elyon)- "the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world" (1 John 4:4). Use the power that God has given you. Shine your light (the light that Christ has given you) into this dark world.  Pray for righteousness. 

Astral Projection, Curses and Psychic Attack

Let us pray:
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
~Matthew 6:9-13
