Scripture: Revelation 21: 15-27, 22: 1-5
Sermon Title: Our Door To Heaven Was Born!
The focus of this mornings semon is Revelation 22: 16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. Children what song do you sing aboi a star? Yes Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. We say this song is about that star, the one that led the three Wise men and showed them where Jesus was lying in a manger. The star is also the symbol of King David. Jesus is our door to Heaven, He always was and always will be and yet He was born. You must wrap your heads around this the Alpha and Omega was born, Reveelation 22: 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. This Jesus went away to Heaven to prepare a place for us and He is coming back. What does the Bible tell us about Heaven. 1) Heaven is a place Revelation 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 2) It is a holy place, Revelation 22 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. There is only one way to Heaven, Jesus the Door. John 1: 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness, comprehended it not. We must remember the Light will prevail, no matter how dark the circumstances may look. His servants wil worship Him. We used to be afraid of the dark because the devil's would come at night in the dark, not anymore now they come out anytime. 3) Heaven is a busy place, with Worshipers rejoicing and praising God and the lamb, we won't be sitting down in Heaven we will be worshiping on one accord. 4) Heave will be a popular place. Can you imagine the multitudes worshiping. Christ masterpiecs is the Church. But know this, the Church will not get you in Heaven, the ritual of Baptisim will not get you to Heaven, the only door to Heaven is Jesus Christ our Savior who was born, to save us.
