For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. – Hebrews 11:10

Dearly beloved brethren, it is very very easy to discover an heaven bound saint or a Bible believing believer, like you.

Your pursuit is different from other people.

Everything about you is done from the perspective of eternity.

Deuteronomy 32:29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Colossians 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 3:4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Beloved brethren, one of such saint was Abraham. See his attitude and lifestyle.

For he looked for a city which hath foundations –

He knew that earth could afford no permanent residence for an immortal mind, and he looked for that heavenly building of which God is the architect and owner.

Hebrews 11:13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 11:14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. 11:15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 11:16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. – Hebrews 11:10

In a word, he lost sight of earth, that he might keep heaven in view.

And all Bible believing believers like you, who are partakers of his faith possess the same spirit, walk by the same rule, and mind the same thing.

Philippians 3:16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

listen to this again.

Hebrews 11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

See how it was amplified.

Hebrews 11:10
[10]Abraham was confidently looking forward to a city with eternal foundations, a city designed and built by God.

Hebrews 11:10
[10]For he was [waiting expectantly and confidently] looking forward to the city which has fixed and firm foundations, whose Architect and Builder is God.

Beloved brethren, see how the scriptures affirms and described the city Abraham was looking forward to.

Hebrews 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

Hebrews 13:14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Philippians 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 21:11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 21:12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 21:13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 21:15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 21:16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 21:17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 21:18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. 21:19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 21:20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. 21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. – Hebrews 11:10

The builder of this beautiful city is God.

Hebrews 3:4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

Isaiah 14:32 What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD hath founded Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust in it.

2 Corinthians 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Whose builder and maker is God – The word signifies an architect, one who plans, calculates, and constructs a building.

The word signifies the governor of a people; one who forms them by institutions and laws; the framer of a political constitution.

God is here represented as the Maker or Father of all the heavenly inhabitants, and the planner of their citizenship in that heavenly country. Listen to this again.

Hebrews 11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Dearly beloved brethren, because you also earnestly desire, living in eternity with God as your goal, then, like Abraham, this must be your attitude and lifestyle.

May the good Lord help you and grant your earnest desire in Jesus name. See it yourself again

Hebrews 11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
