Attending memorials and funerals really bring to light the REAL basis of our lives. It causes a surreal thought — we’re not going to always be here on Earth. On Saturday, January 11, I attended a memorial for a Pastor friend. He asked me to play. In his message he talked about a cousin of his had told him that her son asked where do people go after they die. He covered various explanations that people have given.
Some believe it to be eternal nothingness which is associated with religious skepticism and atheist. Jehovah Witnesses believe only 144,000 will go to heaven and the other people who obey God will live forever on a paradise earth. Scientologist believe the human body is regarded as similar to that of the of other religions; that at death, the spirit will leave the body but the life and the personality will go on.
It is a puzzling thought! The first law of man is self preservation so why or how could death come to get us?
The thought for the day is … THE WAY!! A few weeks ago I was speaking to my earthly Dad about something I realized during a reading in my devotion. “This entire life is about Jesus!” There’s no getting around it!
There are many who believe different things about different things but, at the end of it all, we will one day meet Jesus face to face. This is hard to believe for some of you out there because of your belief system. I understand. I decided to believe in the Holy Bible as the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth book; hearing a story about a man who walked the earth for a little over 3 decades that would die on a cross shedding His blood for people. He started the whole thing (Him being the Word that became flesh) and He’s going to finish it all!
“We’re Just Passing Through to Get to The Other Side — Jesus = Jesus!” is just that. John 1:1-5 (King James Version) “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (2) The same was in the beginning with God. (3) All thing were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (4) In him was life; and the life was the light of men. (5) And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended not.”
What is your thought about this concept? No matter your stance. I’d really love to hear your take on it.
