13 Again and again the Lord had sent his prophets and seers to warn both Israel and Judah: “Turn from all your evil ways. Obey my commands and decrees—the entire law that I commanded your ancestors to obey, and that I gave you through my servants the prophets.”
14 But the Israelites would not listen. They were as stubborn as their ancestors who had refused to believe in the Lord their God. 15 They rejected his decrees and the covenant he had made with their ancestors, and they despised all his warnings. They worshiped worthless idols, so they became worthless themselves. They followed the example of the nations around them, disobeying the Lord’s command not to imitate them.
16 They rejected all the commands of the Lord their God and made two calves from metal. They set up an Asherah pole and worshiped Baal and all the forces of heaven. 2 Kings 17: 13-16 NLT
Heaven is going to be absolutely incredible. I cannot wait to walk down the streets of gold. I cannot wait to stand in the rose petal rain that falls as King Jesus walks through the streets to the booming of the royal trumpets and angel song. I cannot wait to experience my new heavenly body. I cannot wait to see angels!
But Heaven, healing, and even angels are not what I worship. When I have experienced all those things they will still not compare to the sight of Jesus who died and rose again for me!
There’s a movement in our world today that worships the trappings of the Holy Kingdom rather than the King of the Holy Kingdom. The progenitors of this movement would have us looking for feathers and coveting gold dust and getting to know our angel when we should be looking for the Holy Ghost and letting our faith be tried until it comes forth as gold so we can better know Jesus.
I don’t want to settle for less than knowing Jesus my all in all. How about you?
