Can you imagine God shutting down the Kingdom of Heaven like man shut down the government? A heaven shutdown means no provision, no benefits, no deliverance, no mercy and grace, no answered prayers, no nothing. Aren’t you glad that God’s ways and thoughts are not like man? If they were, we’d be in a world of trouble.
Here we have a world system God despises that will cut you off with no regard to the devastating impact it would have on citizens who rely heavily on it. That’s why the Bible warns about putting your trust in man. Psalms 118:8. Yet, many put their trust in a falling and failing system and once they are in there it is like a drug, a dependency, and moreover become their god. Be not entangled in the yoke of bondage and that’s exactly what it is, in that it keeps people totally reliant even unto death.
God has given us the power to obtain wealth. He has given us everything we need to be successful: talent, skills and the ability to think. All of which goes swept under the carpet in exchange for the enticing offers of the world system.
If you click start on your computer and look directly to the right, you will see “shutdown,” and then a triangle shaped arrow. Shut down closes all open programs, shuts down Windows and then turns off your computer. Click the arrow beside shut down and you will see at the top “switch user.” Many of us need to switch from relying on the world system to the kingdom of heaven, for it never suffers a shutdown.
We are now living in a day and time where man needs to seriously wake up to what’s going on around us. The system can shut on and off whenever it wants to. It will fail you yes, but God will never fail you. Thank God for the works of the cross. Heaven will not shut down on us. Benefits a millions comes with the cross. Promises galore at heaven’s door. Trust Him with your life. Let him be your guide. Don’t rely on the world system, instead; rely on the Kingdom of heaven.
