Everyone in this world faces a lot of problems in life. Whether big or small everyone faces different sorts of trouble. As someone said ‘for an elephant it is the timber but for an ant its the grain of rice!’ Well, that saying says it all, the vast difference between problems in different individuals. For the elephant the grain of rice is not a problem at all, but for an ant its far too much to handle! Thus lies the variation of problems between individuals. But we all hope for one thing, to solve all the problems we face and come out as a free man! To fly away as a free bird from the cage!
There will come one day when we no longer worry about any problems what we face today! That day you no longer need anything what you have today, your job, family, vacation, absolutely nothing for you are no longer in this world! Yes am saying about your death. Have you ever thought about it? Have you thought what happens after death? Different religions give a different account on reincarnation and life after death. But the Bible gives a clear account on life after death.
‘And the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.’ (Ecclesiastes 12:7 NIV)
‘For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.’ (2 Corinthians 5:10 NIV)
Throughout the Bible we see evidences of life after death. God when created our fore parents, Adam and Eve, He never created them to die. But when they sinned against God, death came into existence. God sends them out of the garden of Eden for this same reason, for He feared if man eat the fruit of the tree of life, man will live forever without death and cannot be redeemed from the sin. Thus death is a place where the spirit or life departs from the body and depart to God to be with God forever. But as the verse above, there is a judgement for everyone on each and every thing in life to choose whether to be with God forever or to hell for everlasting death! The choice is yours! Your destiny of endless billions of years is decided in this short term of 70-80 years spend on earth!
As said when our fore parents, Adam and Eve sinned against God, man lost the relation between man and God, for God is holy and God cannot come to unholy for they will be consumed at His sight. Therefore, God, who is merciful and kindhearted didn’t leave the mankind for everlasting death, but gave his Son Jesus Christ as a sacrifice to this world for the redemption of sins of mankind. Jesus paid the price on the cross of Calvary by sacrificing himself to death by undergoing severe pain and giving the very last drop of blood of his body. Jesus who was living in all glory and splendor in heaven came down to this wretched earth for you and me and He who hasn’t done or known sin became a sin sacrifice so that the sinful man you and me can attain redemption of sins through the blood of Jesus that been poured out on the cross of Calvary! What an amazing grace! Not only that, but gave this redemption of sins absolutely free, for to those who repent their sins and accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour in life by believing in heart and declaring by mouth and leading a holy life.
‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life’. (John 3:16 NIV)
‘If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.’ (Romans 10:9-10 NIV)
“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!”(Philippians 2:5-8 NIV)
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. “(2 Corinthians 8:9 NIV)
Will you accept this wonderful Saviour Jesus as The Lord and Saviour of your life today and lead a holy life obeying God’s commandments in your life for the redemption of your sins? For those who repent their sins and accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour in life, Jesus will come into your life. He will bring heavenly Joy and peace in your life. No matter what you are and whatever sins you committed all will be forgiven. For when you accept Jesus in life he takes away all the old and transform you completely new!
‘Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!’ (2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV)
No matter what your situation is, if you accept Jesus in life, He will come to you and deliver you out from any situation you are engulfed in.
‘Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.’ (Revelation 3:20 NIV).
Not only that, but to those who been saved through Jesus, they are no longer outsiders as we were before, but have been brought as children of God, for we can come into the presence of God any time and call the God the creator of the entire universe Abba, Father and present our supplications through Christ Jesus!
‘See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!’ (1 John 3:1 NIV)
‘Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.’(John 1:12-13 NIV)
‘For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”’ (Romans 8:14-15 NIV)
Above all to those who accepted Christ Jesus as Lord and Saviour in life and leading a holy life, Jesus is coming back soon to gather his children to be with him forever!
‘“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.’ (John 14:1-3 NIV)
Therefore, we have a solid hope through Christ Jesus that to those who accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and leading a holy life obeying God’s commandments, we are going to be with him in heaven forever after this small period of time on earth! Will you accept this wonderful Saviour in your life and be a part of heaven today?
If so, please say this prayer, believing in your heart and declaring by word and accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour in your life today.
‘Heavenly Father, I accept and believe Jesus is the only true God who came to redeem my sins. I believe Jesus is the son of God who came to this earth to die for my sins and to fulfil Jesus died on the Cross of Calvary and all the sufferings and pain that Jesus took on the body was for me, He was broken down and gave His very last drop of blood for me on the Cross of Calvary for the redemption of my sins and I accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour in my life, I confess my sins and give my life for Jesus. Please forgive me for every mistake I made in my life. Please come in me, live in me, fill in me and guide me until the last breath of my life and help me to stay away from evil ways and lead a holy and victorious Christian life as you please. And bring me to heaven to be with you forever. In Jesus name. Amen!’
For those who accept Jesus in life your names are written in the book of life in heaven! You have become a child of God and a part of the New Testament Church! Let’s live for the glory of God leading a holy life for Jesus is coming soon. Therefore, let’s not worry about any worldly problems that keep away from The Lord, but put your trust and hope in God, for He will deliver us from our problems and when the time come like a bird that come out of a cage and fly away as a free bird one day we will break this outward body the cage and fly to meet our Lord and Saviour Jesus the true God to be with him forever and ever! Let’s live with that great hope and don’t be discouraged with any problems in earth for the days are getting closer to meet our creator soon!
‘Because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. Therefore, we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.’ (2 Corinthians 4:14-18 NIV)
‘Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.’ (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 NIV)
