It is not everything that we do on the earth that is for heaven’s sake. Matthew 26 is the only place in the Bible that Jesus established a memorial for a human being and the act of this woman elicited many things; books have been written about it and songs have come out of it but the Lord pointed my attention to the eternal significance of what she did and focused on my spirit to bring it to your awareness that from today, God will baptize you with grace to connect the little activities in your life to what God is doing in your generation. Judas said that the perfumed oil could have been sold and the money given to the poor. Giving to the poor is a very popular thing today but I want to say to you that it is not every giving to the poor that is affecting heaven’s activity. Before the church begins to fulfill a satanic agenda, God comes ahead to tell us to be careful.
Here are some definitions of what you can do on the earth for heaven’s sake:
1. Something that you do for God: Mark 9:41 41 says “For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward” Any assistance that you give to a child of God because he is a child of God is registered in that category. The key word there is that, “because he belongs to Christ”. People may accuse us that we are parochial. No! We are just being scriptural. I may help any poor person but a help to a person that is poor and not born again and helping somebody that is poor but is born again do not carry the same weight in the spirit. You must understand the difference between natural philanthropy and connecting to what is divine and going to heaven, as a child of God. What are you doing on earth for heaven’s sake?
2. Something that you do positively that contributes to what God is doing on earth in your day.
3. Something that will get to heaven before you do. The only thing that will get to heaven before we do is soul winning. So get busy winning souls for Christ.
4. Something that you put into something going to heaven. Not everything that we do on earth is going to heaven. So we have to ask ourselves: “What is it that will go to heaven of all the things that we are doing?”
