I buried my brother yesterday.
So far in my life, that was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.
Oh, don’t get me wrong; I’ve been to tons and tons of funerals over the course of my life. But I never had to bury someone as close to me as my brother.
Not only did I have to bury him, but also I was present when he passed away. I was actually standing right there in the hospital room when his soul finally left his body and transcended into heaven.
Oh, I believe with all my heart that his soul is in heaven. My brother loved God and had a personal relationship with Him. This I know for sure. So, that’s why although I am sad, I’m not upset cause I believe his soul is at peace.
I wish I could have seen his soul when it was leaving his body. I’m sure he was probably able to look down on his transition up and see me standing there with the doctors.
I wonder what he was thinking at that time?
Was he waiting for me to come to the hospital before he died?
They said they revived him seven times. Seven is the number of completion.
I was there for the last two times they brought him back. I’ll always have that memory with me-not sure if it’s a good one or a bad one. But I’m glad I was with him and he didn’t have to go through that alone—you know, the part when his soul is pulled upward and he is able to see the people below-working on his body. Least he knows I was there until the very end.
His death got me thinking about death and the millions of people who die, unexpectedly in life. You know, the folks that suddenly die of a heart attack, or die in a car accident, plane accident, and train accident. Those like my brother, who sustained a head injury or those that are killed unexpectedly.
I’m sitting here wondering about the thousands of people, all over the world, who probably died that way between the time my brother died, which was Monday, August 16, 2010 at 3:34 am, and now, August 24, 2010 at 11:42 am.
I wonder if they had a personal relationship with God?
I wonder if their souls have transcended to the heavens or were their souls pulled down the portals to the fiery pain of hell?
The reason I’m wondering is because, the only time we can confirm where our soul will end up is while we are ALIVE; while we can still breathe. It’s too late once our heart stops beating and our soul leave our body.
I’m worried about YOU.
What’s going to happen to your soul when you die?
Do you know for sure whether you will live in peace or whether you will burn, be tortured, suffer and be tormented for eternity? You can’t even say “for the rest of your life” when you talk about this type of torment cause you no longer have a life. This tormenting will go on FOREVER and EVER until INFINITY.
Yeah, that’s what hell is like. Hell is endless, continuous, nonstop, everlasting, no relief in sight agony, torment, burning and suffering.
It doesn’t matter how many times you cry out to “make it stop” it just NEVER stops. I don’t care if you need just a drop of water to cool you off, no water will ever come. And then there are the beasts and the creatures that torment you while you’re there. Man, there is NO release EVER.
I don’t know about you, but I do not want my soul to have to endure that for eternity. Matter of fact, I do know about you….I’m willing to bet, unless you are crazier than a bag of dust, that you do not want your soul to endure that either.
Well, than let me tell you this….I don’t soul reading care what you have to do today, I don’t care how urgent things are that are on your plate today, STOP EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and then develop a relationship with the Lord. Make THAT your priority. Cause, in all actuality, there is nothing that is on your TO DO LIST that could be more important.
How do you do that? Develop a personal relationship with God? Very simple. The same way you developed a relationship with one of your present friends. You talk to Him. Spend time with Him. Speak to him as often as you can. Pray to Him. But don’t pray asking Him for things as a lot of folks do. “Lord, please let me have that top of the line Mercedes Benz, a banging girlfriend, and let me hit the lottery too.”
