JESUS IS KNOCKING

Broadcast 3820
Rev 3:20-22 (NET) Listen! I am standing at the door and knocking! If anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come into his home and share a meal with him, and he with me. 21 I will grant the one who conquers permission to sit with me on my throne, just as I too conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.

From when he was in the university, Ikenna knew that there was a call of God upon his life. He knew he would have to seek God for clearer specifics and details, but this never occurred.

Immediately after he graduated from the university, he participated in his country’s mandatory youth service corps for one year. During that period, he had several opportunities to seek the face of the Lord, but he spent all that time searching for opportunities for a 'better life'. He spent all his time applying for jobs and scholarships to various graduate programs in university campuses around the world, but he relegated God’s call on his life to the background. All the while, Jesus was still knocking.

By the time Ikenna turned 49, he looked at his life and all his achievements, but he knew he had missed out on his divine destiny. He had spent the best years of his life chasing money. He had a feeling of emptiness that could not be described.

We see in today’s Bible text that the one who conquers will sit with Christ on His throne. Christ will rule the entire universe, and those who conquer will rule and reign with Him on His throne.

Many Christians have been deceived to think that escaping hell and making heaven is the ultimate goal; they fail to realize that God did not just destine us to see the kingdom; He destined us to inherit the kingdom. Conquerors are not those who just escaped hell; they are those who conquered life for Christ: they are those who conquered territories for Christ and fulfilled their divine destinies. When the Lord returns, He will reward everyone according to the work they have done. Are you using your talents for the advancement of God’s kingdom now?
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
