Hebrews 11:6 KJV “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
When anyone does what you just read, heaven opens wide to that person. When we personally come to God we must believe He exist and causes everything to have it’s being. If we do not believe God we are lost puppies. We do not know where we are, or how to get where we need to go.
Only God can cut through any circumstance and answer the prayers of them that earnestly seek Him. Without this trust in His ability, this belief that God can do whatever we ask, our prayers are weak, they have no power, they are, “impossible.” Hebrews 11:6 says, “Without faith it is impossible to please him.” Just think about this: someone asks you to do something for them, then they tell you, “By the way, I don’t really believe you, or that you exist.” How would you respond?
The phrase, “diligently seek,” God in Hebrews 11:6 means to investigate Him, to search Him out, to seek out for one’s self, to even beg, and crave God. When someone does this they’re serious. They really want to know our Father. This reminds me of another verse:
Jeremiah 29:13 NIV “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Heaven Opens Wide when a person does this! God promises to let Himself be found only by those who SEEK HIM WITH ALL THEIR HEART. A haphazard seeker will never find God. They do not value the treasure He is.
Psalm 73:25 NIV “Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.”
Matthew 13:44-46 NET “The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure, hidden in a field, that a person found and hid. Then because of joy he went and sold all that he had and bought that field. “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant searching for fine pearls. When he found a pearl of great value, he went out and sold everything he had and bought it.”
A SERIOUS DISEASE
The person who obeys Hebrews 11:6 seeks God His way and thus finds Him. This also proves that he/she is not infected with the, “I’m My Own God,” disease. People who think they’re gods aren’t looking to almighty God to reward them. Only someone who humbles themselves; who has taken true stock of themselves, can come to God in the way that pleases Him. Believing Satan’s lie that you’re a god or can become one puts us at odds with the one true God. Because worship of self and desiring worship from others is idolatry.
Revelation 21:8 NIV “But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
To those who seek God the way He desires Heaven Opens Wide. A direct connection is made with the Father. And one day soon we will be right there in his presence, and we will never leave.
Revelation 3:12 NET “The one who conquers I will make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will never depart from it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God (the new Jerusalem that comes down out of heaven from my God), and my new name as well.”
This article would not be complete without mentioning the chief person; the chief connection, or portal that opens up heaven to all of us. That person is none other than Jesus Christ. Listen to what He says:
John 14:6 KJV “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
Heaven Opens Wide when we come to God through the right way: His son Jesus Christ.
