My daughter and her husband are moving house. They are moving from a one bedroom apartment into a two bedroom single family dwelling. They have actually been moving for several days, a little at a time, but they are making a push this weekend to get the big things moved pretty much in 'one fell swoop'. And yet even with friends with young backs (and dear old dad and mom) helping, it is hard work moving an entire household, because there is just so much stuff.
Fairly soon those of us that love the truth will be 'moving house' as well, but this time it will not be into another earth bound home, it will be into a brand new 'heavenly home'. If you think moving an earthly household into new digs is tough, just imagine how much more difficult it is going to be to move from an earthly home in an earthly kingdom into a heavenly home into a heavenly Kingdom. Oh, I can just hear people say, 'but I won't have to take anything with me; all my earthly possessions will be gone and burned up in the 'Lake of Fire', and I will be able to get all new 'stuff' when I get to my 'mansion in the sky'. Yet I am not speaking of earthly things, I am speaking of spiritual things.
The most difficult thing about changing residences from here to there is the fact that we must FIRST unpack ALL of our old spiritual clothes that were given to us by "Grace through Faith", and get rid of them, and put on "Fine linen, clean and bright. And the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints." (Rev.19:8). The difficulty arises from realizing that these robes are cleaned by RIGHTEOUS ACTS.
"But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God." (John 3:21).
Understand that the ONLY thing we will take with us to Heaven is a RIGHTEOUS character, that was developed here on earth by doing the truth.
