Homesick for Heaven

"For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." —Philippians 1:21
This dark and dreary world of sin is not the Christian's home. Our home rests beyond the sunset, in Heaven. The Bible foretold of these "perilous times" (2nd Timothy 3:1-7) in which men would be lovers of their own selves — liars, trucebreakers, fierce, without natural affection, disobedient, despisers of those who are good, boasters, blasphemers, and having a false form of godliness (i.e., religion).
I'm really getting sick of this world, as every believer who loves the Lord Jesus Christ should be. Something is very wrong with a professed "Christian" who feels comfortable in this miserable world. It's not a "wonderful world" as Louis Armstrong sings. Children are starving to death, people are suffering in horrible pain that won't go away, families in Haiti are eating mud cookies to survive, and there are so many heartbreaks. Even so come Lord Jesus!
Never before in history have so many apostates and unbelievers attended religious services. Our churches are filled today with self-righteous heathens, who know not the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior. Sadly, people are having to leave church nowadays to find God, because the world's churches are so corrupted with heresy, carnality and worldliness. It is difficult for genuine Christians to cope with such apostasy and worldliness in so-called "churches." Even many of America's Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches have bowed their knee to Baal in compromise — Focusing too much upon money, remaining silent about blatant evils in government, rallying support for criminal political leaders like George W. Bush, supporting America's terrorism in Iraq, failing to preach the truth in their local communities, encouraging divorce, going light on sin, et cetera.
Yes, I'm homesick for Heaven. You can have this warmongering sin-cursed world. I'm tired of the lying propaganda from The White House, the newsmedia, and the corporations. Even so come Lord Jesus! I eagerly await the time when the Lord will return, and clean-up this wicked world of lust, pride and materialism. I long for the Lord to return to put an end to SIN CITY Las Vegas, and tear down Hollywood, and destroy Broadway.
American society is plagued with pornography, smut, and lewd women. And yet moronic people sit around trying to understand why sex-crimes are increasing exponentially in America. Duh! It doesn't require a college degree to figure it out. Some men are going crazy because of a society that is saturated with sexual lasciviousness. What do you expect when you remove God's Holy Word from the public school system, and replace It with the ridiculous unproven fable of Evolution? No God = No Morals.
I heard a commercial on the radio this week, about how parents should teach their teens about the dangers of "Underage Drinking." What hypocrites! It doesn't work that way folks. If Underage Drinking is dangerous, then so is Adult Drinking. If the parents drink alcohol, so will their teens, and many of them WILL DIE. Underage Drinking will always be a major problem in society until parents GROW UP and stop drinking alcohol themselves. I am sick of the hypocrisy of society concerning alcohol. I am homesick for the Lord Jesus to Rapture me out of this hellhole world.
I desire to see the day when Catholicism, the biggest demonic cult in the world, is no more. I am tired of the Bible-corrupters, and those who perverts the simple free-gift of God's salvation. I am humbly grateful that the Lord is using me to preach the truth; but I am nevertheless homesick for Heaven. I hate this sinful world, where there's a temptation around every corner. I long for the day when the Lord will replace this old, tired and weak flesh with a new body.
It seems that people are willing to do just about anything these days to become successful. Look no further than Miley Cyrus and her nude photos in Vanity Fair magazine. Shame! I am disgusted every time I see some young woman behaving like a sleazy-whore because she wants to make it big in the music business. Country music has become the cesspool (sewer) of America. Country Music Television is nothing but whore-city. HeeHaw is one of the most evil and sinful shows ever produced, featuring Playboy founder Hugh Hefner one minute, while singing a Gospel song the next. It's sickening! Most Country music glorifies the sins of drunkenness, adultery, fornication, divorce, and feminism. It is a sin. Nearly all women who idolize Country music singers wear immodest tight pants, dance lewd (morally acting like filthy pigs), and have a horrible feminist attitude towards Biblical masculine authority. Most Country music is of the Devil. The Country music industry is certainly controlled by Satan's crowd. Don't believe it? Check this out.
You know, I just wish for once some woman would sing a nice Country song without having to whore herself out to market herself. They all dress in lingerie, looking like they're ready to have sex in the bedroom. Sex appeal may sell; but it's a woeful shame upon America, and will bring God's judgment. America is indeed The Great Satan! Whether it be an insurance commercial, Hooter's, or a young woman trying to advance in the music business — most women have lowered themselves morally to the animal kingdom in order to make MONEY. Woe unto the wicked!
I'm just sickened over the homosexualization of the United States. Homosexuality is disgusting, and any nation whose lawmakers legalize "gay marriage" is headed for destruction. Any child knows that God created Adam and Eve; not Adam and Steve! America's children are being lied to, being taught that "Heather Has Two Mommies." This is a lie! Heather has a father, and one biological mother. No child can have two biological mothers. Yet, children are being brainwashed by homosexuals to believe that what God calls "vile affections" (Romans 1:26) is acceptable. It is not. Homosexuality is a horrible sin (Romans 1:24-32). Yes, I am homesick for Heaven, where there WON'T be any homosexuals (1st Corinthians 6:9,10). Thankfully, sinners (including homosexuals) can be made righteous by the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ (1st Corinthians 6:11; 1st John 1:7; Hebrews 9:12; Revelation 1:5).
Yes, I am homesick for Heaven. I don't want the pride of life, the lusts of the eyes, or the lusts of the flesh (1st John 2:15-17)... I just want to be with Jesus in Heaven, "And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you" (John 16:22). Oh, how often do people rob us of our joy, and make us sad? When we are happy, the Devil knows just who to send our way to make us frustrated and sad. Jesus promised in John 16:22 that no man would ever take our joy away again, ever. Amen and amen! No more troublesome coworkers. No more jerk bosses. No more rude or mean people who deliberately hurt our feelings. No more improperly dressed women. No more betrayal by church or family members. No more divorce. No more sin.
Jesus knows that we are suffering in the world (Hebrews 4:15), which is why He promised that it won't always be this way. Jesus will make everything right and happy. Everything is wrong in the world today, which is why it is so unhappy; but Jesus will make it right, and then we can truly be happy. Our health problems will be gone forever and we will pain pain-free, with no more tears of agony and sorrow, and no more death...
"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away" (Revelation 21:4).
This ole sin-cursed world can do what it wants; but I want to live for God. Yes, I am homesick for Heaven. The Lord can take me home anytime He wants, 'cause I'm ready to go. But as long as the Lord permits me to live here in the flesh, I'll be a soulwinner and continue to kick the Devil where the sun don't shine... "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain" (Philippians 1:21).
Ye Must Be Born Again!
You Need HIS Righteousness!
