And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us” (1 John 1:5-10).
In the revelation of Jesus by the angel of God to John, he saw a vision in heaven of the end of time:
“And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?” (Revelation 5:1–2).

Whether we are a billionaire or millionaire, well off or not so well off, living paycheck to paycheck or penniless, it does not matter. We all have one thing in common: This earth is not home (Colossians 3:3).
Yes: right here, right now, whether we live in a palace, in a mansion, in a house, in a condominium, in a villa, in an apartment, in a tent, on the street, or in a prison, we all have one thing in common: we are all “homeless.”
“Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:6–7).
