Someone told me that they didn’t care if they live or die,my question was that,if they should die instantly if they know without a shadow of a doubt where they would end up? They ignorantly say they didn’t care,and that broke my heart to see how lost,and confused people really are,and 2 Corinthians 4 : 3-4 is absolutely correct ,when it says,” But if our gospel be hidden it is hidden to them who are lost; In whom the god of this age hath blinded the minds of them who believe not,lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ,who is the image of God,should shine unto them”.How could someone not even fathom that there is a heaven and hell,or that there is life after physical death,when the Bible distinctly tell us so.
I must admit that I used to fear death, but now, I welcome death, because I know where I will end up;Therefore,I can boldly say, like Paul, ‘For me to live is Christ and to die is gain’ (Phil. 1:21). Isn’t it sad and stupid that some people fear death, but the one who has the power of life and death in His hands some people don’t fear? Why is it Some individuals fear the guy with the gun or knife coming at them, but the God who can just speak the word to end their life, they do not fear, Why is this so? Is it because you don’t know Him? When it thunders,and the lightning strikes who do you think controls that? When the sun comes up and goes down, when it rains,or snow who do you think controls all that,it’s not manmade nor controlled by men.
My friends, if you fear death,it simple means you are serving and worshiping the wrong god. Which means the devil has you blindfolded and handcuffed. Death is unavoidable, the Bible says ,in Hebrews 9:27, ” And it is appointed unto men once to die,but after this the judgement “. Physical death is a consequence of Adam and Eve’s sin in the garden of Eden,as you see in Genesis 3 :19; We must also note that physical death affects the body only and does not cease to exists,or lost consciousness,as we see from the story with the rich man and Lazarus,in luke 16:23. Only fools die permanently, because they lack wisdom (Proverbs 10:21),and they never seek it,and many have college degrees,but never grasp the concept of life and death,much less heaven and hell.
Physical death for the child of God is called sleep,because ,at the return of Jesus they will be the first to rise up to meet Him in the air as we see in 1 Thessalonians 4 : 15-16 ” For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord,that we who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not precede them who are asleep; For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,with the voice of the archangel,and with the trump of God;and the dead in Christ shall rise first;then we who are alive and remain ,shall be caught up together with them in the clouds,to meet the Lord in the air;and so shall we ever be with the Lord”. Only if you are a christian will you have the privilege of rising with the Lord; Are you ?
God sent His only begotten son into the world,so that we can all be free from the curse of sin in John 3:16 it says,For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son (Jesus) that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. Therefore I am not afraid of physical death,because, I have accepted and claim my gift, so that I will be absent from this body of flesh but present with the Lord if death comes before Jesus returns(1 Cor. 5:3; Col. 2:5).Can you say the same ? With these perilous times in these latter days upon us ,as we see in (2 Timothy 3:1-12)death is a privilege to me, and I am not afraid of it.
What a shame and disgrace it is, to see people trying to discredit and deny Jesus . His credibility, life and actions speak for it self. I wonder if they realize that the majority of the things that was prophesied in the bible happened, is happening, and is going to happen. So why would Jesus Christ coming back be different.There is no recorded history of anyone else who did the things Jesus did. Listen you do you, I am putting all my chips, hope, dreams, faith and everything in Jesus the Christ.I am looking forward for Him coming to receive me(John 14:3) are you?In (1 Thess. 4:13-18) Paul informs us, of the events that occurs after your flesh is decomposed. How sweet it is to know that if I die now, I will be on of the list to meet Him in the air, before the Christians who are alive.
So to me dying is gain, imagine: peace of mind, no bills, no crimes, no troubles, wow! I am excited .Are you ? why not? Do you know Jesus? are you living in righteousness and holiness?
Well if you don’t want to die now. Then, you better get it right before it’s too late.
