You cannot trick your way into heaven

You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. (1 Corinthians 10:21)

One can never get to heaven especially if one’s feet are pointed towards hell. Having an obsession towards worldly things is not a good choice for a person who believes in Christ. So idolatry, occult, paganism, hedonism, foolish legends etc must all be totally away from your walk with the Lord God. Your aim must be to focus on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Remember the curious case of the prophet Jonah. He tricked himself away from the will of God for Nineveh’s people and treated himself to a ship journey away from God’s plans for him. Both his trick and treat got royally deflated by the majesty of the Lord God.  The one who had to warn of God’s judgment to Nineveh, himself had to pray for mercy that he be not judged by God due to his running away from God. The Lord then saved Jonah from the gigantic fish that had swallowed up Jonah alive! No trick, No treat, but only sincere appealing to God by faith saved Jonah from that sea creature’s belly. Food for thought (or fish food), you decide!

Dear reader, are you too running away from God by partaking of the cup of ungodly or worldly pleasures? Don’t tell me, speak to your own heart and pray to the Holy Spirit to lead you into all truth. And then if you know you’re not on the right path with God, I’d advise you to seriously and without any reservations repent of all wrong doings and trust Jesus Christ fully.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2)
