Abide by the Spirit to enter the Paradise of God
Revelation 2:7 - He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
Unless we do not overcome those worldly understandings in us which are not of the Kingdom of God and which the Holy Spirit of God has bought in light for us, we will not be able to enter the Paradise of God.
When Jesus spoke to man crucified besides Him on the cross in Luke 23
42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
The words translated as 'To day' is make of two words and should be correctly translated as 'That day'. The day which they were discussion of; the Day Jesus coming in Glory - the Judgment Day.
If we opt to be like an ostrich and put our heads into the ground and continue with what we are doing, do you think we will have any hope of entering Paradise?
When we were in ignorance we were excused, but now when the truth has been put before us by the Lord what will be our excuse to Him?
Can we tell Him, 'Lord you told me to love, so I loved Satan and his ways'. Then the Lord will tell us to go where Satan is destined to go.
You need to make your choice while the grace of God is on you. Once the sun goes down on you, it will be impossible for you to change.
So let us like the man crucified besides Jesus not worry about our situation, or what the world tells, or does to us, but let us abide by what the Lord directs us, so that we can have eternal life.
