“But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever” (Daniel 7:18).
Why should you live with holiness? Holiness is very much essential for you to reach the Heavenly Kingdom. The Scripture calls the Heavenly Kingdom “The Kingdom of the Saints.” Only those who lead a holy life can enter into it.
The Scripture says, “But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life” (Revelations 21:27). Yes. Even a small sin cannot be found there. The dominance of darkness cannot perform there. The power of darkness cannot get into it.
You are going to witness the holiness of Christ in that nation of brightness. With all happiness, you will see the holiness of Father God. With all sweetness, you will taste the fullness of the Holy Spirit. Whichever direction you turn to, you will find holy angels praising God.
All the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders will be praising God saying, ‘Holy, Holy, Holy.’ You also will join them and praise God. Oh! How holy you should be, to enter that nation!
If a person is hopeful of entering heaven after living according to his will and pleasure, he will be cheating himself. Only if you remain holy, you could enter that holy nation.
The Scripture says, “Lord, who may abide in your tabernacle? Who may dwell in your holy hill? He who walks uprightly and works righteousness” (Psalms 15:1, 2).
Satan prevents people from entering heaven, pulls them towards the hade by showing worldly lusts. All those who follow his path will surely experience eternal distress. The hade and the sea of fire alone are the other options for heaven. Dear children of God, struggle for holiness. Always try to be holy. Paul the Apostle says, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day” (II Timothy 4:7, 8).
To meditate: “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified” (I Corinthians 9:27).
