One second after you die....

Edited to add, I haven't a clue where this was supposed to land, I'm so sorry, this doesn't even belong in this thread.

I think those wonderful crusades by Billy Graham and others were the last of the major evangelistic efforts by the Philadelphian Church Age. Combined with the last surge in conversions during the Jesus People movement.

Billy points out that we don't see that anymore. We don't see preaching for evangelism much at all anymore, and with that we also don't hear the reality of hell. It's not polite in the Seeker Friendly church atmosphere nowadays.

We are in Laodicea now.

Good video.

ONE SECOND AFTER YOU DIE:

Believer >>
1) Overcome with excitement
2) Meet your guardian angel
3) Gripped with joy and gladness
4) Caught up to Heaven, zipping across the universe to Paradise
5) Ushered into God's direct Presence and blessings

Unbeliever >>
1) Overcome with dread
2) Meet your tempter
3) Gripped with fear and despair
4) Falling down the abyss, hurtling towards Hades
5) Ushered into God's everlasting curse

I heard that at the point of death, someone's life flashes in front of their eyes. All their life since childhood flashes faster in the first seven seconds. I'm not sure if it's true but I have ever had an out-of-body experience when I was sick. I saw myself traveling through a tunnel to the other side.

I believe death is not the end of someone's life. Another life begins after you die. Either in heaven or in hell.

Death is not a wall, it's a doorway. People do not end in oblivion, they relocate to another dimension -- Heaven or Hell. A tunnel? Since Heaven and Hell are different dimensions spanning enormous distances from Earth (a great gulf fixed), the tunnel may be what they call in science fiction a "wormhole", a means of interstellar, or in this case inter-dimensional travel from one point to a place outside the universe. The Norse had their myths, but some hidden truths may be gleaned from it. They believed in a "rainbow bridge" that was a gateway to all the "nine realms" of the universe, calling it BIFROST. I took their term and turned it into an acronym, rendering B.I.F.R.O.S.T. as Bilateral Interdimensional Foray Running Over Space-Time. I believe we who are believers are assigned a guardian angel to be with us thru life, and to escort us into the presence of Almighty God. Perhaps saints who have earned special rewards (martyrs?) take a ride there on chariots of fire.

It is said energy can never die. Your brain contains energy. I've always been puzzled by people calling it death when those same people will say energy cannot die.

Anyway - If we get zipped off to Heaven, do you think it would be possible to get car sick along the way? I am not a good car person, unless I'm driving. The last thing I want is to meet my guardian angel and throw up on them because I'm not the one driving....

Well, you'll get a new glorified body so I doubt you'll get sick of anything. Your angel guardian will carry you to glory. If you die a martyr for the faith, perhaps you'll be picked up by the chariots of fire. Imagine going to Heaven in style.

A chariot of fire. The Cadillac of all chariots. I Chuck Missler say once that when we die, he believed we are led by an Angel to be with Christ and that then we would see the "behind the scenes" war going on over this planet and the souls within.

More like the ferrari of all chariots. Imagine the speed it can run, covering millions of light years per second as you race from Earth to Heaven. You'd probably be there in two minutes instead of five.

I sometimes think of things that I hope are in Heaven : Rain, & storms, Autumn leaves, beautiful falling snow, my morning cup of coffee, sweet tea (I'm a southern girl), Reese's peanut butter cups, & now that Truett Cathy is up there, Chick-Fil-A!
Why wouldn't it be? When we die, we go to the "intermediate Heaven". The final Heaven is the New Earth. On the New Earth, unrestrained and unencumbered by sin and the Curse, we will invent, innovate, build, and develop a magnificent human culture to the glory of God as His image-bearers. What makes up a human culture? All our technology, sports, food, customs, etc -- but this time all untouched by sin. Yeah, we'll have rain, storms, and autumn leaves, snow falling on outstretched hands. Coffee and Reese's -- why not?

1st Corinthians 2:9 (KJV)
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen , nor ear heard , neither have entered into the heart of man , the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

Amen.
Praise Him.

I have been an avid runner for the past 40 years. The Apostle Paul said we should run the race to win. One second after I breath my last,(assuming the rapture does not happen first) I hope to continue on running all the way up at an unimaginable speed on the eternal trail.

I don't care how I get there, as long as I get there. It will be so nice just to not feel so weak and exhausted in this broken down body.
In due time my friend through your testimony in Christ Jesus by His redemptive work on The Cross you shall receive a glorified body that will last for ETERNITY!!
Amen!!
Each second we are closer through death or rapture.
I sure hope it is the latter.
Praise Him , praise Him, praise Him!

I'm sure we all will get a chance to walk alone with our Saviour in The Garden while the dew is still on the roses (with no thorns)...
