A teenage boy learned a very valuable lesson after experiencing an encounter in heaven.
Tomi Arayomi grew up in a Christian family who loves to worship Jesus Christ. They even host a worship gathering with their community in their own garage in their home. When he was just 16, he had an unforgettable encounter with Jesus Christ! The young boy was talking with his friend about Jesus when Jesus opened his eyes to the truth of the cross.
“For the first time ever I understood the cross, not just the religious message, I mean God literally opened my eyes to see exactly why Jesus died for me.”
Encounter in Heaven
Suddenly, he felt the power of God rushing through his body. It is a power that he had never felt before. The next thing he knew was that he was taken to heaven.
“I’m in this huge Hall of just pure light, there were people from every nation, every color. Every tribe each one singing, chanting, and dressed in their native country colors. There was a huge banqueting table that disappeared into the distance of this Hall of brilliant light. Millions of people talking to your eardrums were vibrating under the torrent of their voices. I knew I was in heaven.”
Called to Serve
While at the table being served by butlers, he was frantic to find Jesus Christ. After asking some people he saw there, a man tapped his shoulders and pointed at the kitchen. Tomi then saw Jesus Christ dressed as a butler coming out from the kitchen, serving the people at the table. With a brilliant light coming out of Him, Jesus then spoke to Tomi.
“Son, do you see what I’m doing? Go back and do that for My people,” Jesus said to him.
Tomi was then back to his body where his friend was waiting for him. When he was about to pick the Bible up, his fingers landed on a page. He opened that page in the Bible and he was amazed at the verse he was reading.
“It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. Truly I tell you, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.” -Luke 12:37
We as Christians are called to serve others just like how Jesus served His people. Even before we were called to be pastors, teachers, and businessmen, we were all called to be servants.
“The greatest mastery is not mastering the prophetic or the pastoral, it’s mastering the service.”
