“Peeking Through the Gates of Heaven”. New Sermon Series Begins Feb. 19, 2017

Peeking Through the Gates of Heaven    Sermon series by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

Things we want to cover in this series.

Where is Heaven? Is Heaven a physical place?

Things that were,   Things that are.   Things that will be.

  • Earththe and  New Earth,
  • Paradise Abraham’s bosom, Hell,

Revelation 1:18, “I am he who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.”

  • Heaven,   New Heaven, New Jerusalem,
  • Physical Spiritual Being

Mission of Heaven   Luke 15: 10 (KJV)  Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth

Desire for Heaven   Hebrews 11:16 (KJV)  But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

Loved ones cheering us on.   Hebrews 12:1-2 (KJV)  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Administrating Government   Revelation 5:7-10 (KJV)  And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.  And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;  And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Past Death of Saints    Luke 16:22-23 (KJV)  And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;  And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

.Support for the Saints    Romans 8:34-35 (KJV)  Who is he that           condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Prayers For Us In Heaven     Hebrew 7:29  Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.

Next week: “Heavens Residents”
