We can’t just love and encourage people to heaven - 2 Timothy 4:3

2 Timothy 4:3 – “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions.”  It’s so easy to take the high road and criticize churches that teach “uncomfortable” theology - the kind of theology that makes people realize that they are sinners in need of Christ. But I don’t want to go to a church to hear self-help/feel-good messages with shades of New Age Thought and philosophy. But is it the “church” or is it the people who are at fault? The bottom line is that hurt people, hurt people and no one is immune.  I've been on both sides of the aisle criticizing the building and its people. I've come to realize that maybe - just maybe - it was ME. I know first-hand because my grandmother and her conservative church loved me to pieces! But they preached the gospel of Jesus Christ (John 3:16) with no strings and no desire to make you feel good about yourself. Instead they insisted tha…

The wicked will be no more! Psalms 9:5; 69:28

Psalm 9:5 You confronted the nations; You have destroyed the wicked. You have erased their names from history.
Psalm 69:28
 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, And not be written with the righteous.

I don’t know about you, but there have been people who've made life difficult for me and those I love. 
Even beyond the confines of our own little worlds, consider the evil that humans inflict on other humans and animals.
Seems like each time we see or read the news, innocent people are slaughtered. People are starved, kidnapped and made to work as sex slaves and worse. 
The stories of depravity are endless. This world is wicked. 
You've probably been a victim of evildoers. Many of us have.
Don’t you take revenge on those who've caused you a thousand tears.
Christ will pay back your sorrows.

Those who caused harm will be blotted from our minds and they will be erased from history!
Let God serve justice.

Take action if you love them!

Matthew 22:30 At the resurrection, people will neither marry nor be given in marriage. They will be like the messengers of heaven.
You are reading this Divine Note, so you are now responsible for taking action to bring people you love to Christ!
If you've ever loved and enjoyed the beauty of great relationships, you know that deep satisfaction loved ones bring to our ordinary lives. Those people who know what you're going to say before you say it. Those people who love you when you mess things up. Those people who know you and love your little quirks. I’m talking about friends, family and spouses – all relationships.
Well...just imagine heaven! If you've ever experienced the presence of the Holy Spirit, you know what I mean. It's life changing – there’s nothing like it!
Imagine that – but magnified and incomprehensible to our human imagination. Heaven will be million times more glorious than we can conceive! And we will be like angels! What a thought!
