Entering into paradise with her angel escort Marietta saw a plain with fruit bearing trees. The birds were singing and sweet smelling flowers were blooming everywhere, but the angel would not allow her to stay there because her mission was to learn the condition of the departed child of God.
One of the great revelations given to Marietta was that when people die and their spirits depart from this world their spiritual condition is irreversible. This revelation, which is in perfect harmony with Scripture, is called the Law of Attraction. In other words, if your spirit is drawn to evil in this life you will be drawn into Hades in the next life. You see, the great purpose of Divine revelation is to warn men that their manner of living in this world has a permanent effect on their life in the world to come. Therefore, that which determines your eternal destiny in the world to come should have your most reverent attention in this earthly life. What is 70 or 80 years compared to eternity?
The condition of a human spirit when they depart from this life determines the place where they will be drawn to in the next life. There can be no mixture of the just and the unjust and of the holy and the unholy.
“He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still” (Rev. 22:11).
Holiness and sin have no common ground. Good and evil cannot harmonize. Life and death can never touch each other. The sinful nature of man can never harmonize with the intense purity and holiness of heaven. It’s like trying to mix oil and water. It will never happen.
If you do not enjoy worshipping Jesus down here on the earth, what makes you think you will be able to up there in heaven? If you do not enjoy being around the things of God here and hearing good preaching, what makes you think you’ll enjoy it there? If you don’t enjoy conversations of Jesus and the Bible here, what makes you think you’ll enjoy it there?
Here are some questions that identify the nature of a man here on the earth:
Are you a slave to sin? Do you find that sin controls you, and you find it nearly impossible to break its bondage over you?
What attracts you? What are you drawn to in this world? Are you drawn to places where sinful passions dominate the atmosphere? Do you have mental freedom? Do you have peace deep inside? These are questions that will identify your true spiritual condition.
I remember years ago during one summer ministry trip to the West Coast I went to a park on a day off to lay out in the sun. I put a blanket down and was laying flat on my back with my eyes closed just minding my own business. Suddenly I sensed the presence of evil in that place. As I sat up and looked around I realized that I was in a homosexual park. My spiritual nature did not jell with the spirits that were in that park. Do you think homosexual spirits would be at home in heaven? What about adulterers and fornicators? Liars and thieves? Murderers and child molesters? Even the cowardly and the unbelieving will not be there, but will instead have their part somewhere else.
“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death” (Rev. 21:8).
If you had just arrived on the earth after living in heaven for a long time the atmosphere and conditions of the earth would repulse you. Sin has cursed the earth. Man’s sinful nature has polluted the entire planet.
Why do think there are strife-filled marriages and broken homes? Why do you think there are unwanted pregnancies and abortions? Battered wives and abused/neglected children? Drug addicts and alcoholics? Murders and suicides? Thefts and rapes? Adulteries and fornication?Homosexuals and lesbians? False religions and cults? Fightings and wars? Jails and prisons? It’s because of sin!
There is no sin in heaven. There is no one with a sinful nature in heaven. There are no places of sin up there in the glory world. There are no police, no funeral parlors, no hospitals, no prisons, no houses of prostitution, no bars or night clubs, no dirty dancing halls, or porn shops. Why? Because there is no sin.
Heaven is a holy place. What makes it so holy is the absence of sin. Heaven is marked by perfect love, perfect peace and tranquility, fulness of joy unspeakable, endless worship, perfect harmony, and unfathomable beauty. Only those whose sinful nature has been transformed and who now possess the nature of God can pass through those pearly gates. You must be born again (John 3:7)! To be born again means to be changed from one nature to another. It means to receive power to becomes the very sons of God (John 1:12), and pass from one realm into another. It means to recover the nature of Adam before he sinned.
Nothing unclean or defiled can enter into heaven.
“But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life” (Rev. 21:27).
In this life is where your eternal destiny is determined. This was one of the great revelations given to Marietta Davis and it agrees perfectly with the Scriptures.
Holiness is what makes heaven so wonderful and only the holy will enter therein. There is no sin, no Satan, no curse, no darkness, no death, no pain, This glorious atmosphere is what man was created for. Only the precious Blood of Christ can cleanse you to cause you to pass through.
I hope I will see you there.
