3:20-21….For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for
the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body that it
may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is
able even to subdue all things to Himself
The bible says “For our
citizenship is in heaven.” If our citizenship is in heaven, it means that we
are sojourning on earth; that we are going to leave this earth one day, to go
back to our citizenship in heaven. The message of today is titled “final destination” I want you to understand
today that our final destination is not on this earth; our final destination is
in heaven.  We have to always put it in
our mind that one day, we will leave this earth; if you do not leave the earth,
the earth will leave you, because it will come to an end one day.  Ecclesiastes 1:2; 4….. “Vanity of vanities,”
says the Preacher; “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity. Everything that we think
we have on earth is vanity. In verse 4; One generation passes away, and another
generation comes; But the earth abides forever. We met some people on earth and
some people have met us on earth. We are going to leave this earth for some
people because we have a final destination. 
We have different homes we are going in the physical, but in the spirit
of God when we do away with this body we have one destination.  The destination is categorized into two, one
is hell and the other is heaven; and everybody has to make a choice where
he/she wants to stay forever. The final destination is a place where everyone
will live forever; if anyone chooses hell, he/she will stay there forever; if
anyone chooses heaven that person will stay there forever.  I want you to understand that you cannot stay
on this earth forever; a day will come when everything will come to an
end.  To everything that has a beginning
there must be an end. Ecclesiastes 7:8….. The end of a thing is better than its
beginning; the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.  When a child is born into the world, he/she
cries, but when he is going, he sleeps. The end of a thing is better than the
beginning.  When a child is born for the
first 2 or 3 weeks, he folds his hands; even when you try to unfold it, it goes
back folded. It is telling you that’ “I am here for a purpose; I carry
Everybody carried something
to this world, and I know that God has given you something beautiful to carry
into this world; but it depends on how you change it. James 1:17 …. Every good
gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of
lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Everything that
proceeds from God is good, because God Himself is good. Psalm 73:1…. Truly God
is good to Israel, To such as are pure in heart. God is good; Psalm 136:1& Psalm
118:1….. Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures
forever……. psalm 107:8; 15; 21; &31….. Oh, that men would give thanks to
the Lord for His goodness And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
God is a good God Malachi 3:6… “For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore
you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob. People change, but God does not change;
age to age, He does not change.  Psalm
103:17… But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting On those
who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children. God does not change
His word. Psalm 90:1-2…. Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all
generations. 2 Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You
had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You
are God. Numbers 23:19…. “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of
man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken,
and will He not make it good? God can never lie, we are the ones changing. God
does not change; He is unchanging changer; He changes things, but nothing
changes Him. When you are coming on earth, you brought something in your hand
that was good; good things which the Lord has proposed for us, but suddenly
wickedness and destruction started.
I want to let you know that
you have a final destination; a day will come when everyone of us will give our
account before the judgment seat of Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:10…..For we must
all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the
things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
What I have done with my hand, mouth, everyone I have destroyed with my mouth,
I will give account of it. God gave you the eyes to see the vision of heaven,
but you are using those eyes to bring people down; God gave us the mouth to
praise Him, out of the mouth of the babes the praise shall be established. But
we do not use our mouth to praise God; we use our mouth to destroy people’s
personality, to bring people down. God gave us the hand to work miracles, but
we use the hand to cut people off; to terminate their appointment. So we will
give account of everything. Everybody must know that there is a final
destination, and on that day, everybody will appear. You may deny Christ as
your savior on earth, but you cannot deny Him as your judge, because He is the
one the Lord appointed to judge the living and the dead; somebody shout alleluia….   This is the time for everybody to understand
that God will judge the earth; God will put an end to this earth, but where is
your final destination? Are we going to heaven? Ladies and gentlemen, it does
not matter how long you live on earth, you will surely die.  It is true that it is said that “we shall not
die but live.” It means that we shall not die young. Genesis 3:19… In the sweat
of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it
you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return.” Since then,
death started coming.
There are three things that
is a mystery to human beings and God does not reveal it to anybody. (1) Nobody
knows how he/she was born; it is only our mom that can tell. Also, the doctors
only predict, but they do not know the exact hour the child will be born. (2) We
do not know how we are going or the day we are going. We do not know the kind
of death that will befall us. Death takes the young and the old; my question is
if death comes
where will I spend my eternity
Genesis 5:5… So all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and
thirty years; and he died. Genesis 9:29….. So all the days of Noah were nine
hundred and fifty years; and he died. Genesis 5:27….. So all the days of
Methuselah were nine hundred and sixty-nine years; and he died. So it does not
matter the number of year you spend, at the end of the day you will die. When
we die, there is life after death; and that is where I am asking my question.
Where are we going to spend our eternity? We plan how to make money, how to
make things happen, but we never plan where we are going. Where is your final
destination? When anyone dies, he/she will get to the gate of heaven; at the
gate of heaven you will be asked what you have done so far; and do you qualify
to be part of the saints in heaven. The truth about it is that we have
forgotten that we have a final destination. We have turned Christianity to
anger, conspiracy, backbiting, wickedness, and evil; that is not the word of God.
The truth is that many pastors, General overseers and Bishops will not go to
heaven.  Salvation is personal Hebrews
9:27…. And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment…  I do not want to face judgment; if you are to
face even the judge of this earth, you know how you will be panicking at the
court room, imagine facing the judge of the judges- God.
Whatever will not enable you
to get to heaven, you better take it away bury it today. There are some people
we hold in our heart; by holding people in your heart, you cannot make it; we
should pour out everything that is in our heart. Lamentations 3:40…. Let us
search out and examine our ways, And turn back to the Lord. Search your mind,
is your heart right?  What you are
telling your neighbor is it what is in your heart? Is there any ulterior motive
when we are smiling with our neighbor? Are we filled with hypocrisy,
wickedness, backbiting? Are we ready to depart from it and accept Jesus Christ
into our lives? Proverbs 27:19… As in water face reflects face, So a man’s
heart reveals the man. Every man’s heart reveals who that person is. “Out of the abundance
of the heart, the mouth speaketh
“today, I want to tell us that
there is a passport to heaven; there is a passport to the final destination.
When you have that passport, you do not need visa, you are qualified, it is a
direct access to heaven; that passport is Jesus Christ. We are gathering money
together and acquiring wealth, but we do not know what will become of us. The
bible says “where your treasure is, that is where your heart will be.”  Some people their heart is not in the kingdom
of God because their treasure is not there. Put your treasure in heaven where
there is no pest or caterpillar to destroy it. Put your treasure in heaven, not
on earth; anything that is on earth will go away with the earth; anything that
is in the world will go away with the world. It is only those who do the will
of God that will stand forever. 1 John 2:15-17….Do not love the world or the
things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not
in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the
lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the
world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he
who does the will of God abides forever.  At times people say they do not to go to
church anymore because of what a pastor did. Salvation is personal; everyone
will stand before the judgment seat of Christ. Some pastor on that day will cry,
and weep when their congregation has gone to heaven, while they are left
behind. Whatever is in your heart, pour it out, today might be the final
warning for you. 2 Corinthians 6:2….In an acceptable time I have heard you, And
in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time;
behold, now is the day of salvation.  If
there is no repentance today, there might not be repentance anymore Christ may
come.  You must not lose heaven, heaven
is a must.
 God is a God of love; He can never be wicked
but all the compassion the Lord has been showering onto us will come to an end
one day. What else do you want the Lord to do for you; He sent the prophets,
and shepherds we did not believe in them; now He sent His own son, He was
killed and hung on the cross for us.  The
bible said “some people will say Lord on that day, is not in your name that I
cast out demons; in your name I preached the gospel and brought many people to
your kingdom.” He will say “I do not know you get away from me, you who
practice iniquity.” Ladies and gentlemen, you can fail an exam, retake
again and make it better. But when you miss heaven, it is lost forever; you
will not miss heaven in the name of Jesus Christ…… I want you to bind the spirit doubting the
existence of God
. Hebrews 11:6….But without faith it is impossible
to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is
a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Psalms 14:1; Psalms 53:1….. The
fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, They have done
abominable works, There is none who does good. 
Everyone must get themselves out of this fools principle “that there is
no God.” Fight every spirit that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.
The knowledge of God is that God is God; He is the creator; is that He has
given us Jesus as our salvation. 2 Corinthians 10:5-6…..casting down arguments
and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing
every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being
ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.  We have to bring down every thought that exalts itself
against the knowledge of God.
The knowledge of God is that He is the
creator, and when He created, He has created; and what He has created He can
bring it to an end. The knowledge of God is that God is Omnipotent, Omnipresent,
God is all in all; He is ever faithful, excellent, Holy, wonderful, mighty, and
powerful. God is omniscience; the scientists’ gets knowledge from God; God is
everywhere, any knowledge that is against the knowledge of God, we bring it
down in the name of Jesus….. We bind every spirit that exalts itself against
the knowledge of God. John 3:16… For God so loved the world that He gave His
only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have
everlasting life. John 1:1-5… In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was
with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3
All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was
made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5
And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.  Satan is darkness, Jesus is light; He is the
light of the world.
John 9:5… As long as I am in
the world, I am the light of the world.” He is the light of our world and
whenever light comes, darkness disappears. Jesus is the light of the world that
will shine on you; receive it in the name of Jesus…. Jesus is the one that has
made you to be loaded; without Him you are empty. When you raise up your hands
it is God; that is why Apostle Paul said in Philippians 4:13…. I can do all
things through Christ who strengthens me. You can do all things, Jesus is our
life; when we have Jesus we have life; let somebody say “AMEN” anything that
exalts itself against the knowledge of God be ready to fight it and put it down
because we are getting there. 1 Corinthians 3: 11…For no other foundation can
anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. After Jesus had
departed, religion spread; everyone claimed that their own way is the way. God can
never be confused; there is only one way that leads to heaven, there cannot be
two ways. The reason why we always have two ways is because of confusion. Jesus
is the only way to heaven Psalms 62:11… God has spoken once, Twice I have heard
this: That power belongs to God. Some religions have to meet five times a day
in other to please God, but thank God for Romans 3:23…for all have sinned and
fall short of the glory of God. Come to the blood of Jesus Christ; people might
have given you different counsel; there is no counsel that can go against the
plan of God. Proverbs 19:21… There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless
the Lord’s counsel—that will stand. Jesus is the counsel of God, so today; you
have to disgrace the devil; by disgracing the devil is to come openly and give
the devil a public disgrace, by accepting Jesus as your personal Savior. You must
accept Jesus Christ, and if you do not accept Him, it means you are calling God
a liar. Romans 3:4…. Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a
liar. As it is written: “That You may be justified in Your words, And may
overcome when You are judged.” God can never be a liar and He has never lied. Jesus
is the only way; there are some, who have given their live to Jesus, but they
have not yet dedicated their life to Jesus; they have not yet dedicated their
life to be committed with Jesus. Psalms 27:4….. One thing I have desired of the
Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days
of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple. Let
God dwell and reign in your heart, do not give room to the devil Ephesian 4:27….
nor give place to the devil. Do not give any avenue to the devil; we have to
pour out our hearts so that we can accept Jesus Christ. If you have accepted
Jesus Christ and you are still behaving like unbelievers you have to come back
today to rededicate your life to Jesus. 
The third spirit you have to fight is the spirit of
.  The bible says,
“Before destruction, a man’s heart is haughty”; our heart will be so haughty when
we belief that what we are doing is the best. Pride does not go anywhere than
to destruction; Proverbs 16:18….. Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty
spirit before a fall. When you begin to see your word above every other person’s
word; when you begin to see yourself better and above everyone else, you have
possessed the spirit of pride. Pride does not lead us to heaven, to glory, but
it leads us to hell. That is what I want you to deal with today, cast it out
and come to Jesus. Ladies and gentleman, when
Noah was preaching, people thought it was a joke; people were given to marriage,
eating, drinking, doing everything until when the flood came and overtook them.
In the time of Elijah he was preaching but people did not understand. If God
could destroy Sodom and Gomorrah He could destroy anything. When John started
his message He said in Matthew 3:2…. and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of
heaven is at hand!” Jesus Christ said the same thing in Matthew 4:17….. From
that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven
is at hand.” Repentance is not only one day, it is every day. If you did not
pray very well today, you are supposed to repent; people have forced us to do
what our spirit does not want to do. We have to repent, come to Jesus today. If
you are a Christian, better be a Christian; if you do not want to be a Christian
better go back the world. God said He will cast lukewarm spirit out; you better
Remain Blessed in the Lord.
