Pureword, I agree with you. I agree that God's will is to be done on the earth as it is in heaven and I think that's a really insightful point. Where your point somewhat falters is in teaching that God's people will not live in poverty, with sickness, etc. because these are not things that can be found in heaven. The reason that this point is not convincing to me is because there is also no food in heaven, or drink.. or even burning from the heat of the sun (Revelation 7:16). When your focus is on the wrong thing, you will always miss the point. Our focus should expand much further than physical needs, and I strongly feel that this is something that is always ignored by Joseph Prince, and I am very conscientious about the dangers of using words like "always" or "never". Joseph Prince places so much focus on desires of the flesh, on the things that place a barrier between God and man. Matthew 6:24 warns us against this barrier, you can love God OR you can love money.. not both. So if we are praying for God's will which is in heaven also to be done on earth, maybe we should find out exactly what God's will is in heaven... and not just focus on His rewards. For instance, the great multitude that stands before the throne, day and night, constantly serving God (Revelation 7:15). They offer every moment of their time to Him in complete adoration and reverent obedience. How can we spend all of our time serving God... yet still avoid the dreaded "good deeds" topic? We really can't. The multitude lives for the Lamb, not for their own selfish pleasures... that is how we read of God's will being fulfilled in heaven. I always imagined that they don't need food because the time that it would take to eat that food would be time better spend worshiping God.

I know that I often fail as a Christian, too, but my message is consistent... we are not doing enough for Christ. That may not make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, but that does not mean that I do not glorify God.

I asked The Lord how much He loved me

He stretched out His arms and said, "this much"

Then He died for me
