There are so many testimonies of the revelations or spiritual visitations to heaven and hell in the internet. In fact the proper word to use to define the magnitude is ‘countless’. The internet is just one platform out of other countless published books, ebooks, audios and live sermons. So many yet so detailed and presenting so much of a challenge to living a righteous, holy and truthful life makes it easy to get annoyed and think that it is impossible for God to require so much from His own.
If for any reason you have gotten tired of the message of heaven, hell and the requirements of making to heaven, I have the following suggested reasoning for you:
It is amazing to learn that Jesus gives cheerfully, loves a cheerful giver and also encourages cheerful recipient of blessings. The aspect of cheerfully receiving is often overlooked yet it standouts as on of the behaviors Jesus encouraged in some cases where He blessed someone with healing. To be cheerful is being in good spirits, being merry.
Matthew 9 verse 2 relates a scenario where Jesus healed a paralytic. He first saw the faith of the people that brought the paralytic and immediately encouraged the patient to be of good cheer. It is like Jesus understands that a sick person has nothing to be cheerful off until his or her health condition has been restored. The greatest concern for the sick in their recovery.
