Beloved,  it was painful to God, your loving Father, that Adam failed Him and deny Him of the fellowship He passionately wanted to be having with humanity the crown of His creation. But He has never let go that passion.
The vicarious sacrifice of Christ has reopened that closed door and for all eternity,
God the Father Himself shall enjoy unending fellowship with the redeemed. You shall be there in Jesus name. See it.

Revelation 21:3-5. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

But very pitifully, some categories of people shall conspicuously  be absent in that gathering. You shall not be absent in Jesus name. The reason for their absence is not far fetched. Their deliberate obstinate attitude, disregarding eternal values. They despised eternal life, Jesus’s shameful and painful  sacrifice offered.

Hosea 8:3: Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him.

These people are regarded by God as wicked, because they chose to forget  Him and His eternal, infallible words.

Psalms 9:17. The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

Very unfortunate, these people are in the church, but not members of the glorious church of Christ.  They lived licentious hypocritical graceless lifestyle.

Isaiah 33:14. The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

No wonder they called Him, Lord but turned their backs to His wills.  Regrettably at the end of time, He also shall turn deaf ears to their pleadings. May this not be your portion in Jesus name. See it.

Matthew 7:21-23. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done man wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Beloved, to help you avert this pitiable, damnable, avoidable catastrophe, that shall be the portion of churchgoers globally, be determined henceforth to be doing the following, till Jesus comes.
1. Walking and doing His will as contained in the scriptures below and in the Bible.

Isaiah 33:15-17. He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

Isaiah 35:8-9. And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

2.  working for Him, turning others in your world of influence into righteousness and doing all things from the perspective of eternity.

Malachi 3:16-18. Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, You in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

Daniel 12:3. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

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

3. Never allowing any challenges satan might bring your way to  separate you from God and deny you eternal rewards. It shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

Hebrews 11:14-16. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 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.

Dearly beloved,  I earnestly pray for you never to meet with Jesus at the other side as a judge. But rather as your bridegroom, your Lord etc. Believers entire sins have been judged on Christ on the cross. They have been justified by God’s grace.

Romans 5:9. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

But then everyone inside and outside the church who trivialise this vivacious sacrifice, shall meet Him in heaven as judged and be damned. You shall not be damned in Jesus name.

Revelation 20:11-15. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Romans 2:16. In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

Matthew 7:21-23. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Matthew 25:11 -12. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

Luke 6:46. And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

Luke 13:23-28. Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

Dearly beloved, for this not to be your portion, see the unequivocal revelation of the requisites for entrance to life eternal according to the truth personified Himself.
1. You must be biblically born again.

John 3:3. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 3:5: Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

2. You must be converted and become new creature.

Matthew 18:3: And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Acts 3:19-20. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:

2 Corinthians 5:17. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

3. You must be consistently and determinedly doing His revealed will not permissive will. See some of them.

Matthew 12:50: For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Luke 11:28: But he said, Yea rather, blessed arethey that hear the word of God, and keep it.

Romans 12:2: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Ephesians 6:6: Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;

1 Thessalonians 4:3: For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:

1 Thessalonians 5:18: In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

1 Peter 4:2: That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

4. You must live a lifestyle of pleasing  God after the other of Jesus and Enoch.

1 John 3:22: And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

John 8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

Hebrews 11:5. By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

5. You must obey His voice , His entire words and keep His commandments.

John 10:27 -28. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:  And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Revelation 3:10-11. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Revelation 22:14: Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

6. You must according to Him, determinedly  separate yourself from anyone and everyone, anything and everything that can make you miss heaven

Mark 9:43-48. And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

7. You must patiently endure every challenges that comes your way to discourage you from making heaven.

Acts 14:22: Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

2 Timothy 1:12: For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

Revelation 2:10. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

His grace shall be sufficient for you in Jesus name.
JESUS’S UNEQUIVOCAL REVELATION. OF REQUISITES FOR LIVING WITH GOD FOR ALL ETERNITY. DO EVERYTHING TO MEET THEM.
Friend,  the Bible in deed is a book of wisdom. Since you are a wise person, then distinguish yourself. There are two categories of believers desiring to be part of dawning rapture.
1. The professors of religion : see an example.

Titus 1:16: They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

Mark 10:17-25. And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to , and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God. Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother. And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth. Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me. And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.  And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

2.  The possessors of religion: see how the Bible describes them.
They are doers of God’s entire words.

Romans 2:13: (For not the hearers of the law arejust before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

James 1:22: But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

They are committed and faithfully following Jesus.

Matthew 25:21: His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

They are free from inward and outward sins.

2 Timothy 2:19: Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

They are committed to doing His revealed will in the Bible.

Matthew 7:21-23. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Friend, no doubt you are a wise person, where do you belong? Possessor or professor of religion? I am persuaded that you are one of the few possessors. But just in case you discover that, you are  an ordinary professor. Repent now. This afternoon might be too late. May God  help you in particular to be wise into salvation .
