Hide and Seek is a child’s game, to be as little children means having a humble and teachable heart.
In my last post, we established through scripture that there is indeed a Hell. Now begs the question: How to go to Heaven?
We prioritise things in our every day life. From little things like, what to have for tea, to getting the car insurance sorted.
Insurance- now there’s a thing! God provides that insurance in your salvation, avoiding that terrible second death to being our comforter, our guide, our redeemer.
Since we don’t have a date on the ‘rapture’ or ‘taken up into the clouds’, like we would with the car insurance, it’s best to look into scripture and make up your heart sooner rather than later.
Hopefully, you can find a hand to hold in some of these posts to point you in the right direction.
=Matthew 18:4&5 (and Jesus states) = :4- Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
:5- And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
=Romans 3:10- As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.
:23- For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
:27-Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
This scripture provides the need to be humble in your growth in faith. From a newly saved Christian to the practised pastor.
=Ephesians 2:8- For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
:9- Not of works, lest any man should boast.
=2 Corinthians 6:18- And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty
This particular passage wraps itself, God wraps himself around me and makes me feel I have come out the other side and there He is, my- your eternal parent (if you so choose:) If you choose to accept faith to be yours;
Ephesians 1:13- In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
Assurance and insurance.
=Acts 20:32- And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
=Ephesians 1:2&3- Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
:3- Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

=Matthew 11:25- At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
There is a place for the wise and the prudent, if they can see beyond their pride and accept the gospel as their faithful salvation.
Once you have accepted the true, living gift of God, give him your heart and soul.
Then I recommend reading the Gospel book of the Apostle John in the AV/ King James Bible.
Every blessing that God allows, while we all enjoy the Lord’s bounty in this holiday season and the coming New Year of 2018!! XXx Val
