Open Heaven 3 October 2017 Message
As Christians who are Heaven-bound, the works of the flesh are things we should watch out for, so that they do not bring our soul into damnation.
On a daily basis, our thoughts, words and actions must be guided by this scripture which says Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4.8 was meant to fulfil on earth, but he gambled with the anointing of God on his life and died with his enemies (Judges 16:28-30).
These examples are there for us to learn from and be wise. As a child of God, you have to drop those weights of sin that easily drag you down.
This is a deadly path to take. No one who took this path has ever had a good story to tell, but that will not be your lot in Jesus’ Name.
