ONLY 18 INCHES FROM HEAVEN.

CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING ‘ONLY 18 INCHES FROM HEAVEN’ AND NOT BEING ABLE TO FIND YOUR WAY IN?

MANY ARE MILLIONS OF MILES FROM HEAVEN AND KNOW THEY WILL NEVER SEE HEAVEN WHILE OTHERS ARE OF THE OPINION THEY ARE ONLY 18 INCHES AWAY. HOW FAR ARE YOU?

MOST OF THE WORLD KNOWS WHO GOD IS. THEY KNOW IN THEIR MIND. BUT, HAVE THEY ACCEPTED JESUS’ GIFT OF SALVATION IN THEIR HEARTS? ACCEPTING JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN, YET MANY KNOW WHO GOD IS BUT LACK THE FAITH AND DON’T TRULY BELIEVE. THEY KNOW IN THEIR MINDS BUT NOT THEIR HEARTS. IT IS NOT A MATTER OF DISTANCE OR A MEASUREMENT IN ANY WAY.

TAKE A RULER AND MEASURE THE DISTANCE FROM THE CENTER OF YOUR BRAIN TO THE CENTER OF YOUR HEART. THE DISTANCE IS ABOUT 18 INCHES. DO YOU KNOW WHO GOD IS IN YOUR HEAD, BUT NOT IN YOUR HEART? KNOWING WHO GOD IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN THE BLESSING OF KNOWING GOD PERSONALLY. ACCEPTING GOD AND ASKING HIM TO COME INTO YOUR HEART IS A RELATIONSHIP. KNOWING WHO GOD IS IN YOUR HEAD IS EMPTY KNOWLEDGE. BELIEVERS HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD LIVING WITHIN THEM. DO YOU?

IN ALL REALITY, YOU CAN NEVER BE 18 INCHES FROM HEAVEN. YOU EITHER HAVE A ACCEPTED A SPOT IN HEAVEN GIVEN TO YOU BY GOD OR YOU WILL NEVER ENTER HEAVEN. GOD HAS GIVEN YOU A CHOICE. HAVE YOU ANSWERED HIM? 18 INCHES FROM HEAVEN MIGHT AS WELL BE 18 MILLION MILES!

DON’T BE 18 MILLION MILES OR ONLY 18 INCHES AWAY FROM GOD. HE IS WAITING TO HEAR FROM YOU. FIND A QUIET PLACE AND ASK GOD TO FORGIVE YOU OF ALL YOUR SINS. ASK HIM TO COME INTO YOUR HEART. ACCEPT THE TRINITY….GOD, JESUS AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

DON’T MAKE AN 18 INCH MISTAKE!

“NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS TO ME, ‘LORD, LORD,’ WILL ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, BUT ONLY THE ONE WHO DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER WHO IS HEAVEN.” MATTHEW 7:21 NIV
