It’s just a question…right?!
By Don Twobears
My Friends and Family…I am coming to you with some information of things that you may or may not know. I understand that there may be some Born-Again Believers reading this, so hopefully, this will reinforce what you already know…yet there may be someone that knows nothing of the Lord God Almighty. What I have to say, can be a little uncomfortable for some, so I ask that you read all of it and then give it some serious consideration.
James 4:14 “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
The first verse of Scripture, tells us how long a life we will be able to live, it’s a “Vapor”, in other words it is going to be a very short life. Even those that live to be 80 years or older, know that life is very short. I am 65 years old and I can still remember back to when I was 3 years old, it is indeed short. When the Holy Word of God tells you that, in just a few words, please take it to heart, these are the words from God’s own mouth to your ears.
The second verse tells us that our lives will be filled with Tribulation, in other words, we will have problems. Now you and I already know this to be truth. Having said that, why are we always surprised when trouble comes along? The point is that we are to rely on Jesus Christ to help us out and in many ways HE removes trouble before it gets to you and I. The Lord God wants us to trust HIM…instead of ourselves. And this includes anything with Death!
Death is here for you and I to deal with…because of our Sinful nature. We were never meant to have to deal with it in the very beginning, but it was Humans that first Sinned against God Almighty.
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God!”
Luke 18:19 “And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.”
Having read these last two passages of the Bible, I am sure that they are easy enough for everyone to understand. Obviously there are NONE GOOD in this world, we have all sinned.
Death is not easy for any of us to deal with, because this life is the only one we have ever known. So even as a Born-Again Christian we have a difficult time with it. Yet we must understand, that for the Born-Again Christian…death is nothing more than a change of body, from a physical body to a Spiritual body and nothing more. We simply change this life, for the life in Heaven. For the Lost Person it is so much more…it is indeed the end. Now that is SAD! But it is what they chose, they had every chance that the Born-Again Believer had. The Born-Again Believer chose to follow Jesus Christ and the Lost ones did not chose HIM. That is the difference!
According to the Bible, the Born-Again Believer is a “Child of God.” No one ever becomes an Angel, Angels are a separate Creation than you or I and that’s it. Once in Heaven, no one is able to know or view what is going on here on earth, their physical Life on earth is over. Again I must say, this life here on earth is but the very first stepping stone, in our Eternal Life. Simply put, the past is already over with.
You have five small senses to live with while here on earth, yet in Heaven, it would appear we will have many more than just those 5 senses. We will experience everything to the utmost richness of God Almighty. And then to top it all off, it will never end!
When one of us passes away, don’t feel bad, be glad they are in Heaven, where their HOME always was. Point being you must accept and follow Jesus Christ with everything you are. Remember, in Hell, the past is all you will ever have. Instead follow Jesus Christ and have all that you were never able to consider here on earth…and with abundance! There is only two ways in Eternity…make sure you choose the better of the two!
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
I use the King James version of the Bible and all emphasis is mine.
