The more you see yourself as something, whether on earth or in heaven, the less you truly are in His eyes and the higher you think you've come, the shorter you truly fall.
God once said to me, "the winners in the world, are the losers in the kingdom and the losers in the world, are the winners in the kingdom."
You can't have it both ways, though so many are lukewarm and sit on the fence, with one foot in the kingdom and one in the world, full of confusion and doubt over which way they should go. You really need to get off the fence and decide once and for all, to step into the "kingdom", the eternal realm and reality of absolute, true love and virtuousness, with BOTH feet and surrender to the one, true, Great Omniscient Deity of absolute love, with all your heart, mind, body and soul (absolutely) and allow He who IS love, to govern and dictate your EVERY thought, word and deed, OR step back into the world, that is governed and ruled by the instinctual nature of the flesh, with BOTH feet.
For God is about to tear down the fence and all those who remain on it, will be torn down with it and thrown into the outer darkness of oblivion, along with it. You really ought to know the time we're in and what stage of the whole process we're up to. That is, if you have the eyes to see beyond your own little world...
In eternity, we're all stars in His eyes. For all we truly are, in our heart of hearts, our soul, is a spark of eternal awareness and divine inspiration, a morning star of endless dawns, that God created to be only and absolutely aware of His divine nature of absolute love.
When He gave birth to every soul (including yours), in the supernatural, He breathed His life into them. Which means, He filled them all with the knowledge and awareness of His absolute, undying, virtuous, true love. He did this, so that all your inspiration would come from true love and be expressed with absolute, majestic virtue.
The atheists like to undermine God, King and Kingdom, by saying it's nothing more than a fairytale, a fantasy. Well, I'm here to testify that it is absolutely fantastic and truth is far, far stranger than fiction, and His eternal presence, realm and reality of absolute love and virtuousness, is LITERALLY and ABSOLUTELY, beyond everyone's wildest imagination and the shadow of any doubt, within you.
Proclaim this among the nations: "Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, 'I am strong.'" Assemble and come, all you nations, and gather together all around. Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O Lord. "Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; For there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations. Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, go down; For the winepress is full, the vats overflow - for their wickedness is great." Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.3:9-14
