“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
🔴 INTRODUCING GOD’S “EPS”!
You already know about (GPS) but probably haven’t heard of (EPS)! The Holy Spirit just gave me the vision of discerning and sharing God’s Eternal Positioning System (EPS). God’s system calls us to be holy as He is holy. His method calls us to know that this world is not our home. We are strangers here on earth. God gives us the choice of choosing Him or choosing the world – Satan. He lets us make the decision!
Getting to a location here on earth when we have an address is simpler using the satellite applications “Siri” and “Waze” to navigate our ground position. The Global Positioning System (GPS) regulated under the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) part 15 rules that it must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. (See GPS.gov.)
It is good to have both a GPS when taking a trip and an EPS for life’s journey!
Each will give you a choice to make when obstacles are ahead (traffic jams, false prophets, accidents, trouble, delays, temptations). One big and crucial difference between the two is that the GPS will give you an alternative route. Taking an alternate route with God’s EPS is an option but will result in spending eternity apart from God. Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life.* Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. 26 Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?” John 11:25-26
Read John 11 and ask yourself:
- Is your EPS set on Heaven?
- Are you making Heaven your final destination?
