No supper things happening here... Just the supper natural things that defy explanation.
Why do parents tell their children that when a loved one passes away that they are in heaven?
Why do we tell others that pass away they are in heaven?
ONLY WHEN THEY ARE GOOD...
What about all the bad people? Then the focus changes to HELL or nothing at all.
I am siting here pondering the reality of life in general.Supposedly their are those who do not grasp the death of a person and the implication of the death of our bodies, when we are no longer breathing in and out. It means one thing! Our bodies are forever dead!
So why are their others who do not believe this? I can only say it this way WHO KNOWS! They sure don't! What facts are there if any about were we go after we pass-away? First let me being by sharing a couple of historical facts about two men that did not die and there are no remains (bodies) to prove otherwise for they can not find them any were on earth today!
Let's find out if Enoch was born to prove that he was here and was accounted for. Gen4:17 Cain knew his wife. and she conceived and bore Enoch.When he built a city, he called the name of the city after the name of his son Enoch. Here is the record of his birth.Now lets look at at his death he lived to an age of 365 years but wait he did not die! For the record he was take'n! Gen5:23-24 Enoch lived 365 years, walking in close fellowship with God, Then one day he disappeared, because God took him.
The next person to disappear from the face of the earth was Elijah oh and there was NO record of his birth he appeared to Moses. Mark9:4 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. The only account of his death was. 'hold on wait a minute' he also did not die. 1 Kings 2:11 And as they still went on and talked, behold, chariots of fire and horses of fire separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. (shaw-mah'-yin) Heaven
So as I continue to contemplate on the wonders of what man has accomplished over the years we now get a glimpse of the heavens of Gods design. Isaiah makes it clear to the expanse of the heavens.Isaiah 40:26 Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars?He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by it is name. Because of this great power and incomparable strength, not one is missing.
As I gaze into the heavens upon which we have no explanation for except to know that God has a named very one of the stares in this great expanse we are told if we believe in Jesus we will be present with God in heaven.2 Corinthians 5:8 Yes,we are fully confident,and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord. To have a greater hope to know were we will be when we pass away give me a great comfort in knowing how much Jesus loves me and gives me the assurance of being forever in Gods presence is worth sharing with those who are seeking truth.
1 John 4:9-10 God showed us how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love - not that we loved God, but the he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
We are living in a time of advanced technology were choices have become hard to come by and when it comes to were you may be forever it is time to chose. I truly understand how this is not a popularity winning contest but I am not here for that I am here to share with those who are seeking truth and peace for the family and friends in their lives. Also to encourage other believers to be strong in their belief.
