MEMORY VERSE: “That He might present it to himself a glorious Church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish”. Ephesians 5:27

BIBLE TEXT: MATTHEW 25:31-46

[31]When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

[32]And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

[33]And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

[34]Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

[35]For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

[36]Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

[37]Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

[38]When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

[39]Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

[40]And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

[41]Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

[42]For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

[43]I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

[44]Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

[45]Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

[46]And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Heaven can be described as the highest place, the holiest place, a paradise which is the abode of God, a state of bliss, a sacred reality, while Hell or the underworld are the lowest places, the abode of evil or demonic spirits and a state of spiritual impoverishment. For our lives extends beyond the grave, every departed soul ends up in either Heaven or Hell.

LESSON AIM: To let members understand there is a place designed by God to accommodate everyone after their sojourn on earth but each person decides where to go!

TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should:
– Know the difference between heaven and hell.
– Understand that getting access to this place requires discipline (heaven) or complacency (hell).

TEXT REVIEW: Matthew 25:31-46
– The glorious coming of Jesus is very close.
– There will be unique separation of sheep from goats.
– On the day of His return, the righteous saints, will laugh last.

LESSON OUTLINE ONE
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL

A. Heaven is generally thought of as a realm in which people experience the bliss of perfect fellowship and harmony with God and with each other; while Hell is in general thought of a realm in which people experience the greatest possible estrangement from God.

B. Heaven is God’s Kingdom where the Lord has prepared mansions for His own; while Hell is a place of everlasting fire prepared for the devil, his cohorts, the wicked and the disobedient- Matt. 25:41.

C. Heaven is reserved for the blessed of the Father to inherit; while Hell is for cursed – Matt. 25:34, 41.

LESSON OUTLINE TWO
HEADING FOR HEAVEN OR HELL?
To ensure you make Heaven and stop any Hell bound journey: –
– Put God first, worship no other gods nor practice idolatry- Exo. 20:3-4.
– Live a holy life, free of all blemish, wrinkle or spot- Eph. 5:27.
– Do good works and harm not another- Matt. 25: 40, Gal. 6:9-10.
– To Be kind and helpful to others particularly the poor or needy and less privileged- Matt. 25:40.
– Always seek the face of the Lord for mercy when you fall into sin, confessing and forsaking them – Ps. 51: 1-5.

ASSIGNMENT: Let members assess themselves and correct what may hinder them from gaining access to God’s kingdom.

SUMMARY: And HE (JESUS) Shall set the sheep on His right hand (everlasting Joy), but the goats on the left (eternal damnation). Matthew 25:33

ASSIGNMENT: Check the activity to be done for the end of this quarter and plan ahead.

CONCLUSION: May the Lord help us as we make the right choice and begin to perfect our Heaven bound journey in Jesus name.
