Fire insurance?

“We reduce the Gospel to just a message of heaven and hell. Here is your ticket to get in and a way to avoid hell. The good news is first of all not that there is a heaven to go to or a hell to avoid. The good news first of all is that God left heaven to be with you right now. The implications of the gospel is not first of all for some future event. God wants you to understand the implications of what he has done for you in this present moment. ”

Andre Rabe

We have historically looked at heaven as our end point our destination… God came down to meet us here and now. He is found in me. He is in mankind waiting for each of us to discover the destination is Him (in Him). God has come to bring wholeness and fullness here and now.

2 Corinthians 3:18
Mirror Translation

The days of window-shopping are over! In him every face is unveiled. In gazing with wonder at the blueprint likeness of God displayed in human form we suddenly realize that we are looking at ourselves! Every feature of his image is mirrored in us! This is the most radical transformation engineered by the Spirit of the Lord; we are lead from an inferior mind-set to the revealed endorsement of our authentic identity. Mankind is his glory! 

A mirror sees the current reflection, not a past or future image. In verse 18 it says he sees us and we see us. They are the same image! He paid for our sins and to him it is gone cast faraway never to be seen again. He sees me forgiven, whole, and perfect (NOW!)

About Ben Kilen

I am a average guy father of 4. I don't claim any super powers or amazing talents. I do have a double jointed thumb and I have always hoped it would bring me wealth and fame but so far it hasn't. I am an eclectic music lover as long and by music current day main stream rap does not qualify as music. Anything that has one to two sentences hammered over and over with no melody or excessive auto tune does not qualify.

    I’ve just posted on another blog, that over and over again on here I see posts that seem to be in sync, a similar message coming through at exactly the same time, God must really want to get our attention!
    This last week, I’ve had the joy of my salvation restored to me, Finally secure in the end result has had a direct effect on me being secure in my salvation now and free of fear and condemnation. I even found that yesterday, my internal response to a worry was “Ohhh, but I’m the apple of His eye…He lurrrrves me!!” What?! I’ve never felt that sure before?! HALLELUJAH!!! :)))
    I thank God for more affirmation in your message. Why do we ever doubt Him!
