Then I suddenly realized the absence of two significant people I worked with in the ministry, I thought, as they have passed on, they should be in Heaven. And I was thinking, “Where are they?” When I asked the Lord about them, He said, “They did not make it. Their hearts remained in the world.”
Jesus was referring to our ministry treasurer and caterer. He said the treasurer came out of the world, but the world never came out of him. He was not honest about the church fund. He lied about the ministry finance, claiming that money was often stolen when in actual fact, he had spent it. Heaven is a holy place for holy people. There is no sin here.
I said to the Lord, “I remembered about that, but that brother loved You.”
Jesus answered me, “Even Judas Iscariot, though he was My disciple, he did not inherit the kingdom of God because of the same attitude.”
Then I asked the Lord about our church caterer.
I said, “Lord, there is another lady I am not seeing. She has done so many good works. She was coordinating our ministry of hospital visits. She was affectionate and she was visiting whenever someone was sick. I have not seen that lady among the saints beyond the sea of glass.”
The Lord said, “She got saved but her heart remained in Sodom and Gomorrah.
