That great man of God, Reinhard Bonnke shared an insightful story in a message I watched some months ago.
He said it is an eyewitness account of about two hundred years ago, when Germany got its first railway train.
“In those days, German women working on the farms, once or twice or thrice per week, took their produce to the nearest market for sale.
But that was not easy. They had big baskets which they would carry on their shoulders.
Before the crack of dawn, they would fill them with produce, then they will shoulder it and carry it over miles to the next market, hoping to sell it to make a dime or two.
But then the railway came. [The one who wrote the story] said he was there when the train came in[to the station] for the first time. The women stood there with their baskets — their bulky baskets.
And when the train stopped, they quickly opened the doors, and wanted to get in first. But THEY COULDN’T! Because of their bulky baskets.
The one who wrote that story down (that eyewitness) said, some tried it left, some tried it right. He said he saw some even tried it from the back.
But, too big is too big!
And then came the railway inspector. When he saw these women [struggling to enter the train], he shouted: ‘If you want to enter you must UNLOAD!’
I had put this Word in my pending folder to share when The LORD permits. In fact, I even forgot that I had such a Word to share.
Then, last night (October 7, 2020), during sleep, The LORD Jesus, with a very authoritative tone, said to my spirit to put it out now. I discerned some people need to urgently hear it, and turn from cares and sin in their lives.
Upon waking, based on the above story, The Holy Spirit STRONGLY brought to mind a portion of Hebrews 12:1 which the story illustrates very well:
“…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us…”
Is there any weight, any sin in your life which could prevent you from entering Heaven? If yes, repent immediately and ask The LORD Jesus Christ to help you to overcome. He is waiting for you to unload it all unto Him.
The cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches, yes, cares, riches and pleasures of life are weights. And sin is the snare of the evil one to destroy.
If you want to enter you must UNLOAD!
I encourage you to watch the related message by Reinhard Bonnke:
“The LORD Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.” 2 Timothy 4:22.
“Farewell” Acts 15:29.

Jacob, an apostle of Jesus Christ by The Will of God, according to The Promise of Life which is in Christ Jesus, (2 Timothy 1:1). As John was, Jacob is the disciple whom JESUS loves, (John 13:23;19:26; 20:2; 21:7,20). And like Paul, Jacob is “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS” (Ephesians 3:1) for His Purpose forever: to obey Him always.
“And having been perfected, He became The Author of Eternal Salvation to all who obey Him,” Hebrews 5:9.
