My grandfather, Joseph Matolo, worked for the Machakos County council in the Republic of Kenya for many years. As a great leader in his community, people looked to him for wise advice. He was always available to help people who were in need. As he continued to be active in doing his job, grandfather never knew whether he needed Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. However, God gave me an opportunity to lead him to Christ. He developed a strong relationship with the Lord.
Many years ago, God called my grandfather home. This secure, eternal, multi-ethnic place is one that all who have a personal relationship with God call home. Heaven is a secure, real place. Heaven is an existing place where people of God go after they die. It is really a secure, real home. It is God’s home. The Bible tells us amazing truths about this secure, eternal home. The Bible describes it as a beautiful place where the streets are all gold. People who don’t know what the Bible says about God’s secure, multi-ethnic home may not comprehend its beauty and its glory.
That’s why I am delighted to write this book which bring to light the truths and realities of this secure, eternal home. The Bible provides truthful, reliable insight about Heaven and the spirit world in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.
The bible confirms the reality of the new life residing in Heaven in Revelation 21:21-24 where it says, “The twelve gates were twelve pearls: each individual gate was of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass. But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.”
Pastors have been leading people of all walks of life to this secure, eternal home. The experience of this spiritual adventure is one that has led me to see many people come to know God and build a lasting relationship with Him. All who have made their decision to have a personal relationship with God have secured their eternal home in Heaven. There are also some who still have not yet made up their minds to have a personal relationship with God. I pray for them each day, and I will still keep on telling them the importance of knowing God and the beauty of having a personal relationship with Him.
Christians all over the globe look up to this godly, eternal, secure home. They hear about Heaven in their place of worship. They expect great things in their lives as they cherish the opportunity of being able to know deeply about this real, secure home where God resides. This secure home is one which everyone is accepted when he or she seeks shelter by faith in Christ Jesus the living God. This true God is the heavenly father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is the Father of Jesus Christ, the redeemer and Savior of all humanity.
People from poor nations and rich nations are all accepted to be citizens of this secure, eternal home called Heaven. All people are all eligible to apply for their spiritual citizenship.
This reminds me of the joy of the hymn: “When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be, when we all see Jesus, we will sing and shout the victory.”(Emily D. Wilson). This temporal world we live in is not our home (1Thessalonians 4:17). We are temporally United States citizens. The Bible declares born again Christians to be heavenly citizens.
This book tell us how to get to this secure, eternal home in Heaven. When we know the path we need to take in order to be able to arrive in Heaven, people will make a decision to board the flight of God. This book also introduce to us to the Head of this heavenly home.
In every home there must be the head or the leader of the home. Someone might be asking, “What are the qualifications for one to be able to own a room in this secure, eternal home?” This book provide the answer to that question.
When my grandfather left me here on earth, my cousin Sammy asked me, “Why did grandfather leave us here on earth to go to heaven by himself?” This book answers this question, because millions and millions of people have lost their loved ones through different sicknesses like cancer, malaria, leukemia, meningitis, auto accidents and Ebola. They may still wonder why they all did not take the heavenly adventure together.
When we still exchange the sweet descriptions of this secure place, it gives us a desire to want to know what Heaven looks like. This book provide the answer to this burning question many people are asking. Then, people would like to know which very important people already live in this secure, eternal home. This book gives you the answer to this question and tell you some of the V.I.P.’s who have already secured their mansion in Heaven.
Knowing that many who will occupy Heaven are people coming from different nationalities, people would like to know what language will be spoken in this secure place. This book has the answer to that question.
What age should one be, to be called home? Understanding and seeing people of all ages depart from this world, the answer to this great question is provided as well.
