JOHN 10:9.I AM THE DOOR IF ANYONE ENTERS BY ME HE WILL BE SAVED

HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED THROUGH THE KEY HOLE... ITS THAT TV PROGRAMME WHERE LLOYD GROSSMAN TAKES THE VIEWERS THROUGH A DOOR AND INTO A CELEBRITIES HOUSE WHERE HE METICULOUSLY SHOWS YOU AROUND AND POINTS OUT CERTAIN OBJECTS AROUND THE HOME WHICH ENABLES THE VIEWERS TO UN RAVEL WHOSE HOUSE IT MIGHT BE. AND THEN LLYOD GROSSMANS CONCLUDING REMARKS ARE “WHOSE HOUSE IS THIS? OVER TO YOU DAVID” AND SO BACK IN THE STUDIO DAVID FROST’S GUESTS HAVE TO DECIDE.... WHOSE HOUSE IT BELONGS TOO. FROM WHAT THEY HAVE SEEN AND BEEN TOLD FROM GROSSMAN.

FRIENDS WHEN JESUS CAME INTO THIS WORLD HE GAVE US A GLIMPSE THROUGH THE KEY HOLE OF ANOTHER HOUSE HIS FATHERS IN HEAVEN. THROUGH HIS LIFE, ( A PLACE OF PERFECTION PURITY A SPOTLESS PLACE) HIS TEACHING ( A PLACE OF INFINITE WISDOM AND TRUTH) , HIS MIRACLES ( PLACE OF POWER AND LOVE A TRANSFORMING PLACE) AND ULTIMATLY HIS DEATH AND RESURRECTION (A PLACE WHERE THERE IS NO LONGER ANY SIN, DEATH AND EVIL AND A PLACE THAT WE CAN ENTER INTO)

THROUGH HIS LIFE JESUS CAN TAKE US OVER THE THRESHOLD OF ANOTHER KINGDOM INTO HIS FATHERS HOUSE, ALL OF US WITHOUT EXCEPTION HAVE GLIMPSED SOMETHING OF THE FATHERS HOUSE AS WE LOOK AT JESUS AND BECAUSE OF THE INDELABLE IMPRINT IN OUR OWN CONSCIENCES.

SCRITURE REFS TO HEAVEN : MRK 10:31 THE VALUES IN HEAVEN ARE TURNED AROUND MATT 12:24 WE CANNOT LOOK AT IT IN A HUMAN PERSPECTIVE WE WILL NOT BE MARRIED JESUS SAYS WE SHALL BE LIKE ANGELS JHN 14:1- 3. A PLACE PREPARED BY JESUS FOR US A PLACE OF EVERLASTING LIFE REV CHAPER 4 – 5. AWESOME AND HOLY PLACE REV. 21:1- 7. NO LONGER SUFFERING DEATH EVERYTHING WILL BE CHANGED REV. 22:1-5 PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD LIVING IN PEACE AND UNITY WE WILL SERVE GOD TOGETHER FOR EVER. 1COR 2:9-10 THIS AWESOME REVELATION OF WHAT IS PREPARED HAS ALREADT BEEN REVEALED!

• PP. SOMEPEOPLE SAY HEAVEN IS ON EARTH IS IT REALLY? CONSIDERS OUR WORLD. .... WITH ITS DICTATORS - SUFFERING - FAMINES - EARTHQUAKES –TRAGEDIES - VIOLENCE - WARS - HATRED -MURDER – NEGLECT - ABUSES - DRUGS THIS IS OUR WORLD ..... IF IT IS CLOSE TO ANYTHIG AT ALL, ISNT IT CLOSER TO HELL?

• WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE WORLD?” A NEWSPAPER EDITORIAL ONCE ASKED. G. K. CHESTERTON WROTE IN REPLY, “I AM.”

WHEN WE CONSIDER LLOYD GROSSMAN GOING THROUGH THE KEY HOLE HE CAN ONLY EVER TAKE YOU AROUND AND GIVE YOU A GLIMPSE OF A CELEBRITIES HOME. AFTERWARDS THE DOOR WILL BE SHUT , HE CAN’T REALLY SHOW YOU WHAT TAKES PLACE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS? AND ITS THE SAME IN OUR HUMAN HEARTS BECAUSE “THE HEART OF THE PROBLEM IS THE PROBLEM OF THE HUMAN HEART.”

WHAT DOES JESUS DO?

JESUS SHOWS US WHAT WE ARE REALLY LIFE - INSIDE OUR HEARTS AND IN THE WORLD AROUND US. AFTER ALL LOOK HOW THE WORLD TREATED HIM – THEY ABUSED HIM AND THEY MURDERED HIM. THAT’S OUR WORLD, THAT’S A PICTURE OF EACH ONE OF US. WE CAN SO OFTEN POINT THE FINGER AT OTHERS, BUT AS JESUS SAID ”HE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE”

YET DESPITE OUR SINS GOD DEMONSTRATES IMMENSE LOVE TOWARDS US BECAUSE JESUS DOES’NT LEAVE US WITH THE DOOR SHUT IN OUR FACES - WITHOUT HOPE BECAUSE NOT ONLY HAS HE SHOWN US OUR OWN DEPRAVITY (EVIL/SIN) AND A GLORIOUS HEAVEN TO BE OBTAINED YET DESPITE OUR SINS HE ACTUALLY INVITES EACH ONE OF US TO BE PART OF IT TO STEP OVER THE THRESHOLD OF THIS PHYSICAL LIFE AND NATURAL WORLD WITH ITS SIN AND DEATH AND STEP INTO A ABUNDANT SPIRITUAL LIFE.

Thank you for posting your sermon. It is however, difficult to read when it is in all caps.
