At some point in every persons life, we either face our own mortality and fragility or we are confronted by it when we loose those precious ones around us. I have certainly see my share of both.
I am a Miracle of faith, having been the recipient of Gods gifts; healing, deliverance, prophetic utterances. I am here solely because God wants me here. There is no good reason circumstantially that I should have survived all the many things that have come against me in an attempt to claim my life.
I have also had to make peace with the loss and absence of those closest & most cherished, predominantly, my Parents. Along with them, a host of family members, some very dear friends and my beloved cat, daVinci along with every other pet prior to him.
Many people have this skewed idea of what death is, what it means and what happens. God revealed something to me and I hope you can wrap your thinking around this enough to truly grasp it. While we are alive on this earth, we are dying every day. From the moment of birth until we pass, it is an unwinding of the life force within us, this vessel eventually breaks down and the number of breaths which are issued by God, eventually come to an end.
Death is a rebirth into everlasting. We are human beings created in Gods image. What God creates in his image, exists forever, it can be NO other way. Heaven is Eternal. It always was and shall always be. It is the place where God dwells and where we, who choose and are chosen will reside after our life here ends. Life in the eternal is much more alive than life here on earth ever was. We will arrive there with this knowledge of what we were, what we are and what we have become. We will continue to grow, to expand, to embrace His love and to serve HIM. Having much to be grateful for and endless days to discover the enormity of it all. Imagine the best day, as a child; discovering something new, the endless energy you felt, the total satisfaction of your favorite activity, contagious laughter, a great feast, friends at every turn. This is what Heaven shall be, it will go on and on, for evermore. I know it is so difficult to imagine, because everything good we know of here comes to an end and quite often, it is short lived. In Heaven, we will never be bored, it will never get tiring and it will never get old. It will be the grandest exploration of Godself, the part of us embedded within, that we only get small glimpses of, from time to time.
This is why we have what is called "hell". it is a place created out of separation from God, an eternal place for those that choose to NOT be in His presence, those who have sinned and repented not. It's a place void of Gods presence, love or benefit. It was created by the separation that occurred when Lucifer fell from grace, that place is eternal and one day, the passage to it will be sealed off, containing & imprisoning Satan, unrepentant sinners and all forms of demonic spirits, forevermore.
Is it not more important than ever, knowing this, to LIVE according to His precepts. He says be READY! He doesn't say worry about this one or that one, He doesn't say, get attached to the idea that you can stay here. He says the opposite, give no thought to what you will eat, drink, wear and reside. We are travelers just passing through. Befriend, cry, embrace, experience, explore, give birth, laugh, learn, plant, play, purchase, sell, reap, do it all, they all have a season and all yield worthwhile value but remember its all just a dress rehearsal!
What is coming is beyond description or understanding. You will only get to it when it's absolutely the right time, it's designed that way as God is the Gatekeeper. So live while you die, trusting in what Christ did for us when He purchased us through death & then, when you die, then, You shall truly live! We are here to make a difference. What difference will YOUR life here make? The fulfilling of that is the purpose of you being here!
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
"For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him."
(2 Corinthians 5: 1-9)
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
"I go to prepare a place for you. I will come again and receive you unto myself" (John 14:3)
The children of God shall "meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord"
(I Thessalonians 4:17)
"He who overcomes, I will give him the Morning Star." "I am Jesus. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and Morning Star." (Revelation 2:26-28; 22:16)
"And it shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer, and while they are yet speaking, I will hear" (Isaiah 65:24)
"all flesh shall come to worship before me" (Isaiah 66:22,23)
"He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son." (Rev 21:7)
"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." (1 Corinthians 15:52)
