Dream Destination Heaven

Dream Destination Heaven

Once the vacation is booked, we start dreaming of it. What does the accommodation look like, how fine is the sand at the beach… 

The Bible talks about a new heaven and a new earth. It is the final chapter of God’s story with us. 

After an act of justice, there will be two places: one place separate from God (hell) and one place in communion with God (heaven).

Often we think of heaven way too abstract. It will be a perfect place where we feel entirely comfortable. No physical suffering, no spiritual confusion, no plagues, no effort, no worries, no crises – just pure bliss. 

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Revelation 21:1

Imagine heaven in all facets and colors you can imagine. To dream of it makes our daily life easier. However it will be a lot more beautiful than that!

Scripture of the week: Matthew 6:19-21 

Festival of lights?

Festival of lights?

We need light otherwise we walk in the dark. We need it for orientation and to find our way home safely. We long for it as it warms and makes us happy. 

Thousands of lights are glowing on the trees, in windows, in gardens and on the facades of our houses. They give us joy and enlighten the darkness. 

During this dark season, we celebrate Christmas. A festival of lights? No, because we do not celebrate the lights – we celebrate Jesus as the true light of the world. 

YES because every single light wants to point towards the one big light which we celebrate these days: Jesus Christ.

And ye shall seek me, and find me , when ye shall search for me with all your heart. 14 And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.

Jeremie 29:13-14

Isaiah the Prophet told us: The people in darkness will shine a “huge light”. And he continued: “A child is born, a son is given to us.” Those who are on the way with him will find their way home. 

Scripture of the week: Isaiah 9:1-6

Christmas Experiment

Christmas Experiment

Astrologists from the orient went on the long journey through the desert. Did they discover the start which the seer Balaam (Numbers 24:17) spoke about? They were certain that their calculations were right and that the star declared a new reign in Israel.

Anyways, they went to the king’s palace. Herod was irritated and questioned the religious elite. They pointed towards a word in prophet Michah, according to whom, the saviour was born in Bethlehem. There, the  wise men found everything like it was foretold, worshipped Jesus like a king and gave him gold, frankincense and myrrh. 

The scientists didn’t just sit on their calculations but made the difficult way to search for Jesus and to find him. Accordingly their happiness was without limits. 

Christmas is going, seeking and finding. Have you found Jesus?

No space for the king!

No space for the king!

The creator of the universe came as a helpless baby. His mother put him in a manger. She didn’t have any other space. 

Would a 5 star hotel make due for the son of God or does the “newborn king of Jews” have a right for a spot in Herod’s palace? 

Everywhere, Jesus was rejected. Herod wanted to kill him as he worried for his crown. The religious elite refused him as the promised messiah and turned him to an earthly court. One of his disciples betrayed him for money and the crowds that just hailed “Hosanna” booed loudly at the cross. 

What Jesus endured for us! Not even the horrible death on the cross stopped him. But now he is rehabilitated and sits to the right of God. The powers in heaven and earth are his. 

He deserves a special place in my life. 

Scripture of the week: Luke 2 (Christmas story) 

What are you counting on in life?

What are you counting on in life?

Most people have certain anchors in life like: profession, marriage, vacation, children, car, home, pension… and at some point death is waiting. Many believe that if they live decently, everything will be ok. Humbly, they are happy with a half full glass. Retirement is taken care of. However, what does it look like with the “spiritual” provisions? 

Jesus promised a quality of life which doesn’t just fill the glass but makes it overflow. I am thinking of a woman with MS living in a small mountain village in Italy. She prayed for 20 years for her husband and he is now following Jesus!

A thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so they may have life. I want them to have it in the fullest possible way.

John 10:10

She can barely walk and is taking therapy daily. Despite her uncomfortable situation she radiates happiness. I encounter joy and warmth through her husband and children. From her life spiritual blessings are flowing to her fellow men. This is how God’s principles work. This family made their provisions beyond life. And you? 

Scripture of the week: 1 Corinthians 1:25-31
