Today I received just one word 'upright' as a message for the day.
Yesterday at my session I was talking on Babylon as a tree which lifted itself from earth to Heaven, I asked them at the session a very simple question 'where is Heaven?' Everybody soon start to look at each other for each knew what they knew was not exactly right.
To prove man's wisdom foolish God rightly made the earth round and man a spec in His creation.
Similarly the direction up is a relative term and up for the person in USA is down for the person in Australia. Time, space, volume, matter is all relative and in reality just nothing. This world and things of the world is just vanity if one does go deep into understanding it. But God did not make vanity, when He created this world as He made things it is written He made it either according to 'His kind' or 'their kind'. Now what 'His' and 'their' kind means is the secret of understanding Heaven and the Kingdom of Heaven.
If we understand creation we will understand the things of Heaven, because all things are created for a purpose and have an image in them.
Being upright cannot be accord to any man on earth because indirectly he/she/it has to point either to 'His kind' or 'their kind'. Since man did not know God no man was found to be upright, even though Job who is introduced to be upright had to go through a great ordeal due to this factor. He learnt at the end his uprightness was nothing compared to God's level. According to man we may be a great example like Job was in the start but when we compare to God's Kingdom we do not stand any status.
For man to be truly upright God the Son came as man and became an example. Now for us who do not even know the direction to Heaven can use Jesus Christ as a reference. He is the Way, Truth and Life and by Him we can now know not only where Heaven is but also live perfect life on earth and experience Heaven here itself.

[ Reference Scripture ]
10 Thus were the visions of mine head in my bed; I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof was great.
11 The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the end of all the earth:
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
2 The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.
