Into His Presence

“Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgment. Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him. For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be? There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it” (Eccl. 8:5-8). “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement” (Heb. 9:27).

As long as the Lord stays His coming, people are going to face the moment of death and judgement. How important it is that individuals keep the commandment of God, for in doing so they shall feel no evil thing. There is a song that says, “I don’t want nothing here to hinder me.” As for me, I can say I don’t want nothing here to hinder me. I want my life to be as white and clean as the snow that has just fallen. In being able to do this, each one will have to stay true to God’s word.

“Therefore we are always confident, knowing that whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. Wherefore we labour that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of Him” (2 Cor. 5:6-9). This says it all. Whether we are present or absent from the body (alive or dead) we want to be accepted by the Lord, having clean hands and a pure heart. What a wonderful thought standing before Him hearing Him say “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” “For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Cor. 5:6-10).

Let each of us be completely dedicated to pleasing the Lord and be accepted of Him when we come into His very presence. God bless and keep each one through His Son Jesus Christ, who giveth us the VICTORY!
