DEATH – A Continuation of the Journey of Life 2017-54

DEATH – A Continuation of the Journey of Life 2017-54

When it happens, I believe it is just another facet of living. The trip of life will be changed, but in the change, it will be exciting. No longer is the mind concerned about worldly problems, local factions or personal needs.  A change that will be profound.

The imperfections that were being carried during the old journey will be gone. The aches, the pains, the torments of the mind will have flown the coop, fading into oblivion. Earthly needs will be non-existent and will be thrown by the wayside- discarded like old socks past their prime.

No looking back now!  Those left behind will catch up with us soon enough, and not that long in the scope of time tables of life. A new adventure of living now not to be afraid of, but instead, a glorious awakening of existence. New contacts to be introduced too and also the re-acquaintances of those in the past to greet us, and bring us up to date of factual things unknown before.

Old stories of living life to be checked out, to ascertain their correctness and to realize if they were true or not. The opportunity, at last, to meet with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in person. Wow, how awe inspiring of a thought. Questions to ask that were always in the background, but now answered, now known.

No more wondering, no more confusion, no more strife and despair, now peace. The feeling of contentment, of satisfaction and of completeness, which will now be the norm in a way of life. The final journey with all the promises, wished for, now a reality.

The soul of being, encapsulated in an essence of life in the hereafter, spending time with others of the same ilk in the new life, the new journey. No regrets, just a feeling of being where we were meant to be, how we are, as we are, in a total forever.

Death is NOT a terrible or horrible thing for those in the second journey, the continuation of life. It is one of joy and not of tribulations of despair. Perhaps for those left behind, for a while, until being reunited with those that took the step to a journey of life everlasting. This is what I believe!!!!!

Peace,

Was Jesus Christ a Liar or Just Crazy? 2017-51

Was Jesus Christ a Liar or Just Crazy? 2017-51

The other part of this question is – OR was he God?

He claimed to be God, as the son of the Heavenly Father, but was he?

It was important to Him that others thought so.  Either we believe Him, or we do not; no in between thoughts about this; Yes or no!

If we think he was just a good moralistic teacher, we have to think that what He said way back then, goes beyond being just a moral teacher.

What He said goes beyond what a mere man would say.  Maybe, we would think He was a borderline crazy, equal to a drifter thinking they are Napoleon, or the like; again, nothing in between!!!!

If He was lying, he was also deceiving his followers and disciples. Those He taught in His three years of known and written ministry, He would have been giving false hope to these followers, of all sorts. He also faced Cruxificition and would have backed off to save His life if he was lying; I would have done so, and many others then and now would have also.

Another if!  If Jesus was crazy, he did not act so.  He said too many profound things that have been chronicled. He did so many unique and great things and all he did and said were from a stable and sound mind, in the process.

A mere man does not create miracles, cure people of afflictions and raise the dead as He did. NO, I do not think He was lying, nor do I believe Jesus was crazy, but instead, He was God, as the Son of God. He sits on the right side of God and is there waiting to greet us when we make the final journey from here on Earth.

God and Jesus are alive, they are active, they are aware and present always, around and within us as the Holy Spirit, always.
