i am with the Risen and Glorified LORD JESUS Himself -- face-to-face at long last! i am with GOD The SON, my Faithful Savior, my heart's Desire and Delight. HE is the Author and Finisher of my Faith and ETERNAL Salvation -- The Great AMEN in Person, the very LIFE of this twice-born soul! HE is my ULTIMATE Consolation, my WONDERFUL Counselor. HE is the LORD of Glory and the LORD of my Righteousness. HE is my Good Shepherd, the Sacrificial LAMB for my Passover. HE is my LIFE-Giver, Sustainer and Resurrection... the PRINCE of Peace -- full of GRACE and TRUTH!
i am with The Ancient of Days, our Thrice-Holy FATHER -- our Heavenly "ABBA" -- the One who ALL-ways knows BEST always, and who ALL-ways acts perfectly RIGHTEOUS and JUST always! i am with the SUPERnatural Holy SPIRIT -- the One who caused my being BORN AGAIN, the One who baptized me INto CHRIST, the One who NEVER forsook me as i lived out GOD's Plan for me on earth. (John 14:20-21,23,26; 16:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:14; 1 Corinthians 6:14)
As you hear (or read) these words, KNOW that i am in UNearthly, UNimaginable, almost UNcontainable BLISS -- in heavenly, rapturous, glorious DELIGHT -- wrapped and immersed in INexpressible JOY that is a constant experience, my BEing totally enveloped and totally saturated -- to the deepest recesses of my soul.
i am glorified ALIVE! MORE alive than i ever was on earth... MORE vibrantly ALIVE... a gazillion more of 'the Heavenlies' MORE -- EXpressing MORE UNsurpassed vitality that is SO effervescent and SO invigorating, yet SO peacefully at ease and restful in this INdescribable ZESTfulness and UNmatched BEingness of ALIVEness. It's a GLORIOUS ALIVEness that fills to OVERflowing my very BEing -- that radiates from my deepest innermost BEing. i would be OVERwhelmed were it not for the REALITY of this NEW SPIRITual body that is NOW the dwelling place of my enLIGHTened soul and quickened spirit.
Take off the long faces, put on your ear-to-ear smiles. i am MORE than just fine. i am made WHOLE at last -- body, soul and spirit United IN CHRIST -- a child of the GOD Divine -- beaming outwards the Light of CHRIST from withIN, HE who is The LIGHT of the Universe...my altogether Lovely Adonai, my utterly Precious Pearl of GREAT Price -- my LORD of Lords and KING of Kings -- CHRIST JESUS Himself, The SON of GOD.
Now i fully KNOW -- my time on earth was but Life 101 -- SPIRIT-led lessons on CHRISTlikeness. It was the life-long Process of PREPARATION for Eternity with GOD in His heavenly Kingdom. And physical DEATH -- cessation of my earthly existence -- was but the blink-of-an-eye ENTRANCE to Eternal LIFE. (Romans 8:29,28)
Dearest family and friends -- those of you hearing (or reading) this last expression of rLn -- you ONLY live ONCE in that vulnerable body you now occupy. You ONLY have this VERY brief lifetime to CHOOSE which Way to go. You ONLY have this ONE chance to choose your ETERNAL Destiny. There are NO multiple reincarnations -- only GOD's Plan of RESURRECTION for ALL SOULS ever born -- either to Eternal SEPARATION from GOD (Hell) or to Eternal LIFE with GOD (Heaven). (Matthew 25:46; Luke 10:25-28; John 3:14-18,36; 5:24; 6:40,47; 17:2-3; Romans 6:23; Galatians 6:8; 2 Thessalonians 1:9)
Life EVERafter really is "Black and White." There are NO shades of grey. Your IMMEDIATE Life after this FLEETING one on earth depends on how you CHOOSE your "colors" -- "BLACK" or "WHITE." (Matthew 13:49, 25:32)
"WHITE" is blazing Light and utter Truth. "WHITE" is the TOTAL absence of Evil and Darkness. Imagine a PERFECT Paradise, then multiply it a gazillion times -- and it STILL won't even come close to the REALITY that IS Heaven... that is "WHITE." (1 Timothy 6:15-16)
HALLELUJAH! i'm here! Once a wretched SINNER of old, but NOW a wholly, completely NEW creation -- a MASTERPIECE of the heavenly Master -- NO words in the human language can describe BEing in the Presence of GOD! The hosts of angelic Beings utter amaZZZing UNearthly Heavenly JOY-full language of worship that perfectly honors the One True Living GOD -- The GOD Most High, The GOD Everlasting. But how can i put into earthly words the music of their heavenly worship? You have to be HERE to hear and enJOY and experience SUCH wondrous and glorious utterances.
Remember when GOD by the Holy SPIRIT raised JESUS from the dead and the Risen CHRIST manifested Himself in His GLORIFIED Body? THAT is the REAL Hope of EVERYone who are IN CHRIST -- boundless vitality and OVERflowing LOVE, heavenly JOY, and the UNfathomable PEACE of GOD that was but a tantalizing hint on earth compared to the REALITY that is here in Heaven. (Hebrews 12:2; Isaiah 44:23; 1 Peter 1:8; Jude 1:24)
And BEST of all is this UNsurpassed DELIGHT of BEing with The LORD JESUS -- face-to-face at long last! -- in His Presence ALL the time and being conscious of it! His GLORIOUS Presence would OVERwhelm me with its OMNIPOTENT GLORY were it not clothed with His UNspeakable sweetness and INfinite graciousness. My whole BEing sings angelic harmonies -- in utmost reverence and childlike wonder... in AWEstruck amazement, in utmost gratefulness for the SUPERlative privilege of sharing Heaven with GOD Himself as one of His own.
If you haven't yet reckoned which Way to go, which Master to serve, which "Color" to side with by your total allegiance -- please, for the sake of your EVERlasting SOUL -- choose "White." PURE, gloriously radiant WHITE for the color of The WORD made Flesh. PURE, cleansing spotless WHITE for the color of JESUS' shed BLOOD for our sins. PURE, UNapproachable blinding WHITE for the Infinite Perfection of our Most Holy GOD IN CHRIST.
REPENT -- turn from SIN, SELF and satan. BELIEVE and TRUST in JESUS' LIFE of sinless Perfection, of His perfect BLOOD Sacrifice on The Cross, of His historical Resurrection and astounding Ascension back to GLORY with The FATHER. Acknowledge His rightful LORDship over your entire life -- body, soul and spirit. RECEIVE by GRACE alone, through FAITH alone, IN CHRIST alone -- GOD's gracious and merciful FREE Gift of Eternal LIFE with Him and the saints in His SON's Kingdom in Heaven -- for His SON CHRIST JESUS Himself said, "I AM The Way, and The Truth, and the LIFE. No one comes to The FATHER except through Me. I AM The LIFE and The Resurrection. You BELIEVE in GOD -- believe ALSO in Me." (John 14:6; 11:25; 14:1)
For 'it is APPOINTED for men to DIE once, but after this The JUDGMENT.' The cowardly, UNbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and ALL liars -- they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. THIS is the SECOND DEATH. (Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 21:8)
'And I saw the DEAD, small and great, standing before GOD, and books were opened. And another Book was opened, which is the Book of LIFE. And the DEAD were JUDGED according to their works, by the things which were WRITTEN in the books. The sea gave up the DEAD who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the DEAD who were in them. And they were JUDGED, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is The SECOND Death.
'And ANYone not found written in the Book of LIFE was cast into the Lake of Fire.' (Revelation 20:12-15)
