Lessons for Life
Our blog articles uncover the pattern for guaranteed success found in scripture. Read the posts below and begin living the successful life you were created for.
The propensity to only consider things of time as real, and to reject the eternal realm of Heaven’s reality did not begin with you and me, or even with our generation. This deception existed in the time Christ was on the earth and long before.

I am convinced that understanding His identity, His origin, and His destination were what made Jesus able to navigate, to endure, and to succeed in His life mission during His time journey. He clearly understood the reality of Heaven’s realm and the earth realm. His understanding enabled Him to see into Heaven’s realm continually.
Eternity is our design. The purpose that we are designed to accomplish and to fulfill is not limited to the environment of our time journey and to the resources that originate there. Our purpose is an eternal gifting and calling that will continue into our forever hereafter.
Is it possible to live our lives based more in Heaven’s realm more than in the earth realm? Some have called the experience bi-locational. It is abundantly clear that our priority in everything that we are and in all that we do is to be in the pursuit of Heaven’s realm. Our Constitution is clear.
Seeking His Kingdom and His way of doing and being right/correct is how we pursue our purpose and our eternity and our eternalness. This is what we are designed to do, and what we are told is to be the most important passion for us on our time journey. I believe this is how we learn to bridge the gap and to pierce the veil between the earth realm and heaven’s realm.
How do we bridge the gap and pierce the veil between the earth realm and heaven’s realm? The gap is very narrow and the veil is very thin. The death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth demonstrates just how thin the veil is and how narrow the gap is.
How do we determine what is right and what is good for us? What do we use as our handbook and our standard for our conduct and behavior in our lives during our time journey? What are the values, the principles that and the established precedents we use to govern ourselves? The scriptures are our Constitution for our governance.
The mind is the true battleground. It's where we determine who will gain the authority and power to rule our lives in time. The mind is where the Kingdom of Light and the Kingdom of Darkness go to do battle for control of the souls/minds of humanity.
When we experience the new birth, our spirit is changed instantly and our relationship and fellowship with our Creator God -- once severed and inoperable -- is restored and is fully engageable immediately. However, allowing our mind to be reprogrammed and to think differently is a process. We are in charge of that process.
Having an eternal perspective as our foundation, maintaining it as our operating platform, and making it our operational reality for life does not just happen.
Last week we discussed the reality that sometimes in our time journey, we are overwhelmed by the tough situations and circumstances of our lives. Why do these overwhelming circumstances not completely overcome us? Scripture answers this question in 2 Corinthians 4:18. How do we maintain victory in the storm that rages around us? We focus on eternity, eternality, and on our personal eternalness.
