Perfection Loves and cherishes you!!! Whilst you are able know this!
We could ‘share’ for hours, days, weeks, months or years on this. I will make it brief: In the Universe, there is ONE place with creations in The Image of The Creator…
Amazing (utterly!) To know The Creator!!!
It bewildered me for decades at the ‘history’ documentary before Man was keeping ‘records.’ Yes! After Man learned documentation, it has been done. These five books are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. They are also collectively called the Torah. Until the late nineteenth century, the consensus view of biblical scholars was that Moses wrote these first five books of the Bible.
Just what did God Speak to Moses concerning? The Israelites asked God for help and that He sent them a leader: Moses. … One day, when he was in the desert, Moses heard the voice of God speaking to him through a bush which flamed but did not burn. God asked Moses to lead His people out of slavery in Egypt to the Promised Land.
We almost need to review ‘His-story’:
What is the Christian story?
In currently back tracking to our share today. I was in an accident, literally life altering! To curtail the account: I thought it was all a dream that I experienced! The deep lesson is that typically dreams are not recollected years after. When I was a child, my parents took my siblings and I to Disney which I remember vaguely. I over time can recollect a few things over time: kindergarten, grade school, high school…getting clearer the closer in proximity to the present day. But, can I remember dreams? I pose a question to you, what dreams do you remember at this current time?
Experiences, yes! Dreams? A tad bit up in the clouds.
What I ‘dreamt’ about post accident is clearly in my thoughts. Interestingly, narcotics, hypotension, even sounds in the wards I was on/in could be associated with my ‘memory.’ Can they truly be?
I cannot remember one event after the accident here on Earth. You can go back and review my account, but most importantly is to do what I currently do – share the actuality of a time after this current time. Remember this:
In Psalm 90:4, Moses used a simple yet profound analogy in describing the timelessness of God: “For a thousand years in Your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.” The eternity of God is contrasted with the temporality of man. Our lives are but short and frail, but God does not weaken or fail with the passage of time.
In a sense, the marking of time is irrelevant to God because He transcends it. Peter, in 2 Peter 3:8, cautioned his readers not to let this one critical fact escape their notice—that God’s perspective on time is far different from mankind’s (Psalm 102:12, 24-27). The Lord does not count time as we do. He is above and outside of the sphere of time. God sees all of eternity’s past and eternity’s future. The time that passes on earth is of no consequence from God’s timeless perspective. A second is no different from an eon; a billion years pass like seconds to the eternal God.
If ‘time’ does not exist for God, Who Created ‘time’, what do we who exist in time with its limitations do with time?
Just what will the afterlife be like? There are few who have gotten a glimpse of this:
I have attempted to gather both religious and non religious accounts to have you consider which accounts are more effective in sharing what I was given the blessing of seeing a rad bit further than most in our period.
Yes, The Book of Revelation was written sometime around 96 CE in Asia Minor. The author was probably a Christian from Ephesus known as “John the Elder.” According to the Book, this John was on the island of Patmos, not far from the coast of Asia Minor, “because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus” (Rev. 1.10).
1 & 2. Elisha and his young servant saw horses and chariots of fire—a heavenly army—all around them that were protecting them.
2 Kings 6:15-17.
Now when the attendant of the man of God had risen early and gone out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was circling the city. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” 16 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. NASB
3. The heavens were opened to Ezekiel as he was by the river Chebar, and he saw visions of God (Ezek. 1:1). Much of the entire book of Ezekiel records what he saw in these visions. We can learn a lot about heaven from the book of Ezekiel.
4. After Jesus was baptized he saw the heavens opening and He saw the Holy
Spirit like a dove descending upon Him.
And it came about in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; 11 and a voice came out of the heavens: “Thou art My beloved Son, in Thee I am well-pleased.” NASB
5. Stephen, as he was about to be stoned, saw into heaven.
But being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God; 56 and he said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened up and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.” NASB
6. God allowed John to see through a door into heaven. And he was supernaturally translated out of the physical realm into the spiritual realm, where he saw things as they are in heaven (I got this from John MacArthur).
After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.” 2 Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was standing in heaven, and One sitting on the throne. 3 And He who was sitting was like a jasper stone and a sardius in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, like an emerald in appearance. 4 And around the throne were twenty-four thrones; and upon the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white garments, and golden crowns on their heads. 5 And from the throne proceed flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder. And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God; 6 and before the throne there was, as it were, a sea of glass like crystal; and in the center and around the throne, four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind. 7 And the first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle. 8 And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say,
“Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.”
9 And when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, to Him who lives forever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders will fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and will worship Him who lives forever and ever, and will cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
11 “Worthy art Thou, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for Thou didst create all things, and because of Thy will they existed, and were created.” NASB
7. Paul was caught up to heaven and heard wonderful words.
2 Corinthians 12:2-4
I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago — whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, God knows — such a man was caught up to the third heaven. 3 And I know how such a man — whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows — 4 was caught up into Paradise, and heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak. NASB
Father in Heaven, I give you all the praise and glory that is due to Your name. You are great and I thank You for the many blessings and marvelous works You have done. Great and Mighty are You My Lord. I cast all my burden unto You, Father, because You care for me. You grant me the desires of my heart. As I surrender my all to You, help me to always remember that I can let go and let God. In Jesus name, Amen
