We have the erroneous concept that with death we die. Death is but the exile, the exiting of our soul from this vessel. Neither life is a dream, though for some, this life will be the closest to a dream and for others a fading nightmare. Life on earth is one reality, a short one.
Everyone that has lived on earth gets a time period in this reality. Our time here ends in one way of many.Some being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Many awaken- and I say awaken, because leaving this body is like opening our eyes- with their fading health.Others induced by lies and heavy darkness take it upon themselves to end their time.
And one of the most tragically beautiful -our clock starts failing, it breaks, and we run out of heartbeats.
The next reality is much more authentic. Our eyes are opened. Our souls are freed from a fading vessel. Our minds are unveiled. It’s more real in a way because you experience it through new senses.
Senses that capture everything in dense detail.
It can be said in the most tangible of the word…
You are aware.
Being here you can say that life on earth felt like a dream. A lot happened so fast, and in some way you had slight control over certain things.
The now you are in now is infinite. Eternal.
Here, time is but a concept from another world: Earth. Time is that story from the books. In this reality time is both what you have plenty of and none.
Let’s talk real. Whoever told you that death was it? That death was an infinite sleep? Who was it that implanted the idea that you’d go back to the stars and the dust?
Your body, your flesh really does, it becomes what it once was; dust.
But your soul, your spirit also returns to its maker to its source.
Here’s the thing. Death, verbatim, as many understand it, is only something we can experience being on earth, being alive, limited to this body.
This death I’m talking about is not death to the body, but death of the mind, the spirit, the heart. One can seem very alive to the physical eye, while having died a long time ago. You walk the streets a healthy being, while rotting inside.
This is the saddest death. It is walking life through motions that lack the fuel of love, of faith, of forgiveness, of kindness.
This is the product of rejecting your Maker, His love for you. That is life outside of His gift, outside His Son.
When you die this death and then die to this life, your soul descends further from its source, from God.
In rejecting Him while you were alive, you allowed sinful things to shape you, to make you. And to that source you’re returned.
This is very sad. Who was it that mocked that you’d be playing a harp on the clouds in heaven, and rocking concerts in hell?
This was a lie, and now you know.
No one looks after anyone in hell.
There is no love there, because God is not there.
Heaven is a place filled with God. God is love. God is good.
Just living with your Creator is a wonderful privilege.
Yeshua paid with His life the cost for us to enter Heaven.
All we have to do is accept Jesus as our Lord and savior in our lives and confess it with our mouths.
If God made all of us, and we’ve made all these things like theme parks, buildings, books, etc., don’t be blinded to think that there are not greater things we haven’t seen or imagined for us to play, to do, to enjoy, while we are in eternity.
All the talents and gifts are from God. He has a purpose for you.
Your purpose does not die when you do, unless you die outside of Him.
We’ll understand more clearly when we’re freed from this vessel.
But following Jesus is to be done now, in this life.
He has granted us entrance to His kingdom and has made us coheirs with Him. There’s lots we might not understand right now.
It’s an adventure of love to follow Yeshua, Jesus the messiah.
Not grasping everything now is part of the adventure.
It’s exciting as you come closer to Him, He shows you. Every step you take closer to Jesus, a veil falls from your eyes, and you see what He has always held in front for you.
Life. Love. Forgiveness. Mercy.
He begins to show you new things and take you to places you have never been.
All this, while being alive on this Earth.
Now imagine having the King in front of you. No physical or mental barriers that cloud you with doubt. Imagine the transformation from this life to the next. The exile of your soul from this body.
Entering pure, dense light.
This is the life I want to live my eternity in. By my Creator, my God, my King, my Father.
His presence is the place where I want to be fully aware.
I want to see, to hear, to feel, to taste, to breathe, His pure presence around, within. I want to play, dance, sing, hug, kiss, laugh, with Him.
This is the “death” you long for when you follow Jesus.
