Welcome Back, My Friends - 2019
Welcome all 'new visitors', who have found 'my house in and with Jesus'.
It just does not matter! Whether I am in Wilmington, North Carolina on a little 'river cruise' on the Cape Fear River, in Athens, Greece, in Nassau, Bahamas, [where 'protective walls' were everywhere], or, anywhere else, like the 'majestic' Swiss Alps, still we meet and have a wonderful time. For this year, 2019, in all the 'rooms' of 'my house in and with Jesus', I pray you and I will continue to meet and have the same wonderful, growing times, in the Lord. Amen. Amen. How then, shall we continue the year - 2019?
Let us conclude this 'series', posting from Post 4, February 17, 2019; Post 5-6, March 20-23, 2019; Post 7, March 31, 2019; Post 8, April 3, 2019. I just love our 'series' of 'devotions' from my favorite pastor of old, The Morning and Evenings Devotions of Charles Haddon Spurgeon [1834-1892]. But, may you now be in the 'habit' of 'devotions', and through them, drawing closer in your personal relationship with Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen. Amen. [Additions of Holy Scripture references, and emphasis, SMQ.]

Continuing from Post 11, August 4, 2019; Post 12-A/B, August 18, 2019; Post 13, September 1, 2019; a 2-Post 14 and 15, September 15, 29, 2019. Continuing from October 13, 27, 2019, the 'Great White Throne Judgment Seat' for 'unbelievers' and the Judgment Seat of Jesus Christ and Rewards for 'believers'. Thank you for returning for all the posts. Amen. Amen.
God does not want anyone 'ignorant'. It is all carefully spelled out in - 'the Holy Bible'. This is vitally important, for as it is 'written', 'there is none righteous, no, not one...read more Romans 3:10]
Continuing in our 'series', in contrast, The Great White Throne Judgment Seat for Unbelievers vs. the Judgment Seat of Christ and 'Rewards' for 'Believers'. Where are you assured to be???????
Crowns in heaven
Crowns in heaven are not things we wear on our heads and parade around with but they are 'the outshining of the body', our 'countenance', which determines what kind of star you we will be.
We will have different bodies in heaven [and in hell], from the one we have now and the type of crown crowned on us determines the glory of your body i.e. the outshining of your eternal immortal body.
Remember when Jesus appeared to the disciples on the mount and after the resurrection, [Matthew 17:1-13; Luke 9:28-36], they saw the outshining of His eternal body and that is the body we will all have in heaven but outshining differently according to the different types of crowns or rewards crowned on each one of us.
Like the stars, different bodies will outshine differently in heaven according to the type of crown or reward awarded for the works we have done on earth. This is what Apostle Paul was referring to when he said,
‘There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star different from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead’ (1 Corinthians 15:41-42).
There will be different stars shinning differently in heaven i.e. our resurrected bodies will have different outshining each shining differently from another according to the crown crowned. The outshining is the glory of different bodies, glory of stars. But, remember, we are to let our lights shine now. [the countenance; the glow of the anointing of scriptures]
The glory or outshining is the capacity to enjoy eternity.
If you look at the stars in the sky in night, stars shine different from one another. They range from brightly shinning ones to very dull or dim unnoticeable ones.
After we are crowned with different crowns according to our works, saints in heaven will shine like the stars. Some will shine brightly while others will be dull or dim.
Every saint in heaven will be happy but with different types of crowns or rewards. This crown is the capacity to enjoy heaven and years to come. Some will have a limited capacity to enjoy because they were saved and instead did nothing. Instead the cruised through life watching TV’s, making money for themselves, watching football, partying etc.
Do not think you will enjoy heaven the same way with a person who has been carrying out the work of God entirely in his/her life; carrying out the great commission, even suffering. 'And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.' Mark 16:15. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
God is fair.
Revelation 22:12: And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Yes! Some saints will have ‘mansionates while others huts’, ‘some tycoons others poppers’.
According to your works, which type of star will you be? What will be your capacity to enjoy heaven? What type[s] of crown[s] will you be rewarded? Remember, there are people who will have more than one type of crowns in heaven. Which is/are your crowns?
It will be due to the 'crown'/'crowns' that we will 'be as the angels of heaven',
You have the time now to determine your type of crown[s], as we have discussed in this series which Jesus has available to reward you with, and all for your capacity to enjoy heaven and eternity.
Do the work of God and lay your treasure in heaven and you will be a ‘tycoon’ in heaven. [Matthew 6:19-20]
You can lay your treasure in heaven by helping being a part of preaching [telling others], the gospel to every creature. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. [Mark 16:15]. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
And, there are numerous other opportunities, in accordance with 'the gift[s]' the Holy Spirit chooses to give you, for the Glory of God, for your good, being a blessing to others.
[See 'series' on 'the Gifts of the Holy Spirit' posted in the 'Welcome Room' during July 2019].
You have what you need now to make your choice. Make a good and wise choice. May God bless you as you do so, ever remembering that - the 'greatest gift', the 'gift of eternal life' by faith and through faith in Jesus Christ, is right now, and by far, the most majestic and gracious 'gift' of ALL. It is - first and foremost, without which - NO ONE will have 'any crowns or rewards'!!
For all who have entered into this series, my prayer to God, in Jesus Christ, by the Holy Spirit, is that He will use it for either your salvation, or, your growth in your most precious faith in Him. Amen. Amen.
