Your Place

Acts 17:26: And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

God has chosen the places where we will live on earth and the times we will live in them. He has also prepared a place for the fallen Angels and those who reject Jesus.

Matthew 25:41: Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Jesus is also preparing a place for each and every individual who has received Him and every individual who will receive Him. He has made a rock solid promise to receive them unto Himself. There will be no empty places in Heaven.

John 14:2-3: In my Father*s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

2 Timothy 4:8: There is laid up for me a crown of righteousness.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon:

Doubting one! thou hast often said, *I fear I shall never enter heaven.* Fear not! all the people of God shall enter there. I love the quaint saying of a dying man, who exclaimed, *I have no fear of going home; I have sent all before me; God*s finger is on the latch of my door, and I am ready for Him to enter.* *But,* said one, *are you not afraid lest you should miss your inheritance?* *Nay,* said he, *nay; there is one crown in heaven which the angel Gabriel could not wear, it will fit no head but mine. There is one throne in heaven which Paul the apostle could not fill; it was made for me, and I shall have it.* O Christian, what a joyous thought! thy portion is secure; *there remaineth a rest.* *But cannot I forfeit it?* No, it is entailed. If I be a child of God I shall not lose it. It is mine as securely as if I were there. Come with me, believer, and let us sit upon the top of Nebo, and view the goodly land, even Canaan. Seest thou that little river of death glistening in the sunlight, and across it dost thou see the pinnacles of the eternal city? Dost thou mark the pleasant country, and all its joyous inhabitants? Know, then, that if thou couldst fly across thou wouldst see written upon one of its many mansions, *This remaineth for such a one; preserved for him only. He shall be caught up to dwell for ever with God.* Poor doubting one, see the fair inheritance; it is thine. If thou believest in the Lord Jesus, if thou hast repented of sin, if thou hast been renewed in heart, thou art one of the Lord*s people, and there is a place reserved for thee, a crown laid up for thee, a harp specially provided for thee. No one else shall have thy portion, it is reserved in heaven for thee, and thou shalt have it ere long, for there shall be no vacant thrones in glory when all the chosen are gathered in.

1 Peter 1:3-5: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
