Of all the stories in the year 2019 this one shook me to my knees. It was a beautiful morning with cool weather. The rain just stopped. We rushed and raced to the office because we were already late for Morning Brief tv program.
Actually, we were held back by the rain which cause flood in Lagos and traffic also were not favourable. Nevertheless, we truck our way through the traffic scene.
The studio was set for our normal daily Morning Brief a television program whereby news headlines are discussed from inspirational view point.
It was during one of this sessions this story was told by one of the guest preferred to remain anonymous. He said sometimes ago a man was announced dead in a particular city. He was a fist-tighten. He hardly let go of his money. He was an hard working and devoted Christian. He find it difficult to give himself and the family a good treat.
He had several cars and many houses used for commercial purposes. You can be his good tenant as long as you don’t owe him, but if you fail to pay his money, he didn’t need your opinion before he come with court letter to send you pack.
He spent most of his wealth pursuing power and fame not given to the poor with right mind. Lavish his money on women with immoral motive.
On the day he died nothing was wrong with him. He slept healthy but unable to wake the next morning. Within that period he find himself in heaven. He started a new journey of eternal life. According to his story.
“I saw heaven made with gold. So beautiful to behold. And the Angels were leading people to different houses very beautiful house painted with raw gold and I was given a privilege to see into the inner of those houses, behold they were filled with so many valuables.”
When it came to my turn the Angel said to me “you are welcome to the gate of Paradise. It seems you don’t have house here. How do you mean, replied the man. And the angel answered him “we have no place for you here because you did not have any investment here. “I was very rich on earth. I have several houses and material wealth. Why do you say I have no investment here, do you know how much I have in my bank account plus several investment in shares and bonds said the man.
The Angel replied, “yes you are very rich on earth but poor in heaven. You are very popular on earth but commoner in heaven. You had everything you need on earth but never gain honour in heaven. Everything you have belong to you and you spent them on yourself and family. You spent them to satisfy your personal desires.
These words broke him down and was crying. He asked the Angel what would be his fate. And the Angel said there are vacancies on the street of heaven where you can live for as long as eternal life last.
The man asked further who are those people the angles were leading to the beautiful houses? These were those that rich towards God. They live to satisfy the desires of God, they promote good life and righteousness, peace and expansion of God’s kingdom. They were always on mission for God.
Then the man pleaded vigorously with the Angel probably he could be allowed to scout with some of the people inside the beautiful houses but Angel replied him, you can do such on earth but not here, whatever good work you do on earth gives you opportunity to possess a Manson in heaven. Once you are not rich towards heaven you remain in the street for the rest of your eternal life.
And the Angel gave him an option of returning to the earth and start investing towards heaven. “How would I invest in heaven?” Ask the man. And the Angel replied give to support any course that promote God’s Ideas, give to the poor, do good to them that can not pay you back. Use your wealth to raise others and make them happy. Serve in the house of God and then you would be qualified to partake of the Manson Jesus Christ mentioned to His disciples.
And the man woke up from the sleep of death. At that time they had not perform any preservation on his body. People present in his house for condolence ran at the occurrence of his resucitation.
Friend how do you spend your money? Do you use it judiciously or lavishly to please your personal longing or you invest it on promoting God’s idea? Material wealth gives you opportunity to acquire a Manson in heaven and whatever good you do whether small or big goes into your account in heaven.
Do not be like that man who spent all his wealth pursuing fame and power, rich on earth but poor in heaven. Startup the process of acquiring your heavenly manson. Always save good deed into your heaven account then you shall enrich your emotional account with good feelings.
