As I sat eating breakfast, there is a flowered plant on the table and as I looked at it, I thought that all the beautiful flowers that God has created here on this earth are just very tiny hints of what the Lord has in store for us as we go to be with Him. Even with my wild imagination, I can envision but a poor thought of what it might look like. As I thought about this, I thought of how even what we have here must be given sunlight and water or it will die. Immediately as the thought crossed my mind, a flower fell off onto the table and died. It felt like God was listening to my thoughts. I know He is real and I am anxious to meet Him face to face.
John 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
Throughout the ages, there have been people looking for the fountain of youth and it was found way back two thousand years ago in the person of Jesus/Yeshua. Yes, it is true, you can live forever and there is only one requirement, you must regret and repent of your past and ask Him to come into your heart. It sounds crazy but it is true, you can live a joyous happy life of wonder and amazement with this one simple pill. Swallow your pride and live forever. Yeshua/Jesus is the door into the Kingdom of eternal blessings and you will never ever be bored again.
Revelation 20:15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
Who will not be found written in the Book of Life, Revelation 21:8 tells us; But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” I do not like to think about these things but as I was up in the night, the Lord was telling me about the lake of fire and what it is like. This is a photo I pulled off the web and cannot remember in what context it was except, I was looking for images of volcanoes. Thus, the lake of fire is like a volcano in its quality. It is extremely hot and devouring to anything that it comes in contact with. The big problem for those who will be cast into the lake of fire, their bodies will not be destroyed but will endure the heat and ravages of this inferno forever; there will be no end to the agony. This place was not designed for mankind but for Lucifer and the angels who followed him, because of their influence of evil on mankind.
Unfortunately, the influence of Satan has affected a great majority of mankind. One does not have to look very far to see the wickedness prevalent all over the world today. I have been involved in some forms of this wickedness myself till I came to know Jesus/Yeshua. I am so thankful to this merciful Creator God who has reached down to me and pulled me out of depravity and into the realm of His marvelous Kingdom. He has shown me what He had in store for mankind from the beginning and the infinite love and mercy and joy He wanted all of mankind to enjoy.
I write these short thoughts because I want everyone to enjoy an infinite life beyond the grave in such a Kingdom that cannot be compared with this one we are now living in. I look around me and see just the beauty of flowers and am beside myself with them. Yet what is to come in His Kingdom is so much more in beauty, I cannot yet contemplate the beauty and love designed into each plant. I think about the streets of pure gold that are so pure, they are like golden glass that we will walk on.
Again, I will write more tomorrow as the Lord leads.
