I would imagine it’s natural to fear death. I would also imagine that it’s not natural to fear death. I imagine it depends on the person.

I can imagine why people fear life. Everything, everyone that we love, can be taken so quickly. And we are left feeling, “why bother?” But I guess it’s true, “It is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.” I wonder sometimes. Life has always seemed so fragile to me. My grandmother on my mother’s side used to say * “Here today, gone tomorrow.” I never forgot. Looking back now, I know that her (* “saying”) instilled in me, an awareness of how temporary this life is. I used to fear, ‘what on earth would I do when my parents died?’, Then I learned of the cycle of life.

As I lived, grew, and learned of the eternal possibilities, and life on the other side, the potential for eternal life through God’s Word; I gained confidence in believing that God could not lie, and that I could live forever. I learned that if God could lie, He was not God. God claims that He cannot lie and I believe. This whole business of believing ‘what you cannot see is very peculiar.’ Consider this: through ‘God’s requirement of us to exercise our faith and free will; He can understand our hearts.’

Some learn to respect God’s Word and respect His sovereignty. Some think that God does not exist and that this whole GOD business is a fairy tale and myth.

So back to the business of the fear of dying. ( Some things that might go through the head of a dying person); And some things that go through our minds, apart from being on our death bed are these: How could Christianity be so seemingly exclusive? Does God really mean that the only way to the Father is through the Son? Does Jesus really mean it when He says, “If you’ve seen Me you’ve seen the Father?” Is God fair? Where is God when we need him most? These are legitimate questions.

Does God really meanStraight is the gate and narrow the way and few there be that find it?”

What if there are no scales in heaven? What if God’s Word is true and we cannot earn our salvation? Upon death and crossing over and looking upon the face of God; do we find out that the only criteria for eternal life is, if our our spirits are covered by the shed blood of Jesus? And the only question that matters to God the Father is, “What did you do with My Son, do you believe in Him, was your life indicative of your believing in Him?” Did you come to a point in your life when you heard God’s Word and received it, and were totally changed, thus being ‘born from above, or ‘born again?’

Through experience, study, and seeking God, I have found that many people are unaware of something that is critical to know. If you read the book of John chapter one, you will find a phrase that says “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God, and the Word was with God.”

God’s Word is “alive.” God’s Word is “life.” God’s Word is “Holy.” One of God’s names is THE WORD. Finally, for now, it is critical to read the Old Testament. I’m amazed at how many people have no idea what the Old Testament is about, especially in today’s culture. This is a great loss, this is partly why we have a spirit of delusion. Many of us have no clue as to how just and fair God is, because we don’t know the stories. We have devolved as a race. A lot of us have become reprobate and have no idea about the things of God. All for now, Frankie The Earthman.

Look up, for your redemption is nigh.
