16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
MEMORY VERSE: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” – Acts 4:12
Jesus is the only sure way to heaven.

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
THE GRACE OF GOD SHALL SEE YOU THROUGH TO ETERNITY, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Heaven is God’s abode where Jesus has gone to prepare a place for all His followers. To get to heaven, certain stairways are required. I call them spiritual principles to eternal rest.
The first is to establish a cordial relationship with God who wants all men to come to heaven. This is established when you surrender your life to Jesus (John 3:16; John 10:10). You must repent of your sins and forsake them completely, while fully trusting in the atoning work of the Lord Jesus as the only way to God.
You must know that holiness is the nature of God, and that without holiness, no man shall see the Lord. You must realise that it is by grace that you are saved. You must also know that to walk on the stairway to heaven, you need the help of the Holy Spirit, the Comforter and only help in the journey to heaven. You cannot climb on your good deeds or character to get to heaven. Jesus died so that those who believe in Him would no longer be condemned to an eternity apart from God.
You must make the word of God; the Bible, your companion and embrace a life of total separation from the system of the world (1 John 2:15-17). Apostle Peter mentioned these stairways to heaven in his general epistle in 2 Peter 1:5-11: add faith to virtue, add virtue to knowledge, add temperance to patience, add patience to godliness, add godliness to brotherly kindness and to brotherly kindness, charity. These Christian virtues which are wisdom, knowledge, justice, truth, love, patience, holiness, goodness, grace, joy, peace and faith should be shown to all men.
These virtues are to be demonstrated by Christians to men, believers and unbelievers alike. If all these are evident in your life, eternal life in heaven is assured.
- O Lord, give me divine speed in my spiritual journey, in the name of Jesus.
- I reject every spiritual contamination, in the name of Jesus.
- Let all spiritual holes in my life be closed by the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
- Any power that wants me to end my journey in hell, you are a liar, die, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, give me divine prescription to all my problems, in the name of Jesus.
- I disarm all household enemies on my way to glory, in the name of Jesus.
- I shall make heaven by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
