Those who believe in and follow Jesus have nothing to fear come death. This is because Jesus has become their Lord, as He is mine, and has also brought them safely home also. Speaking of this time when we eventually die and take our last breath, Jesus said, “let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:1-6) The Lord Jesus is the path that we need to take in life, in order to go heaven. Many of you are going through trials, have sickness in your life, have financial issues, and more, but all this will be a thing of the past when you die and meet your maker. This is when Jesus will say to everyone who truly believed in Him and did what He said, “well done, thy good and faithful servant”. If you want to hear Jesus say this, then confess your sins to Him today, while and crying out to Him in prayer. Then, He will come and rescue you, that you may be cleansed through His blood and be forgiven.
Speaking of our time in heaven, it is written, “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. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:4-8) How wonderful it will be to be with the Lord, our God, forever, when we are found worthy. Just to see Him come and wipe away our tears will be so amazing and heart throbbing. Our sorrows will be over once and for all. We won’t have to experience any more sickness, pain, or death, for the tree of life is now in our midst forever. But know that Jesus is only willing to save those who are found thirsty and hungry for Him and His will. If you are one that seeks Jesus often, then sins are not abounding in your life and you will be found worthy when you die.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that we will all be ready when we take our last breath. That if we say we believe in You, that we are also living our lives for You. As for me, my life is Yours, but pray that many other people will do this also. I know that in heaven there will be myriads of believers, but thousands times more people in the lake of fire. Who will be in heaven will be up to You, of course. I just pray that You are preparing a place not just for me, but for my family and others I love and care for deeply. I wish to see my mom, my dad, my brothers and sisters, my wife, my kids, my aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and even co-workers in heaven also. I just know that the majority of these people are doing their own things in life. They have what already brings them temporary joy, but have left out what is most important, which is You, Jesus. I anxiously pray for these people to repent, and to come out of their false beliefs. Their sins are holding them back from being saved. But their time is not yet up. So Lord, open their hearts to discussions about You, Jesus. Open their hearts to talk to me and other good Christians in the faith. I have found the cure to the worst disease ever, which is You, Lord. Why can’t people see this? Open their eyes, God. May they also allow You to come and rescue them. Only You can place us on the path of righteousness, of which leads to You in heaven. I believe in You. I love You. Amen.
