What do I share here? I took a ‘nap’ and experienced amazing things. The reference to ‘fallen asleep’ in The Bible is not to the soul/spirit but to the body, for the dead body rests in the tomb as on a bed until God raises the person up.” Our loved ones who have fallen asleep in Christ have a richer, fuller, closer experience of Christ than any of us can enjoy on this Earth.
Eutychus /ˈjuːtɪkəs/ (Greek: Εὔτυχος) was a young man (or a youth) of Troas tended to by St. Paul. Eutychus fell asleep due to the long nature of the discourse Paul was giving, fell from a window out of the three-story building, and died. Yet, Eutychus was awoken from his ‘Sleep.’
Our spirit differs from our soul because our spirit is always pointed toward and exists exclusively for God, whereas our soul can be self-centered. The joy, comfort and peace of God’s presence can only be experienced through our spirit.
God brought the world into existence and as the capstone of this good work, God Created people in His Image so that they could share in His overflowing Love, grace and goodness through their relationships with The Trinity. God did not need the world or need people because God has NO lack.
Where I was in the coma (my nap) had NO “Time”, no sunrise/sunset… thought it was minutes till I woke up.
In sharing, I am doing what I spoke to my Reason that I would do when I awoke. Just wanted you to know that You are Loved by your Creator.
The Greek term Agape is applied both to the L/love that huMan beings have for God and to the Love that God has for Man.
God’s Love justifies our lives and fills us with hope for the future. “God so Loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but will have eternal life.” The Good News: Even death has no dominion over those who L/love and are Loved by The Lord.
And we pray:
Father Lord, I know You have conquered hell and death – You have The Power over them now and You have open the way to eternal joy with You. Lord, I desire to live with You forever, I want to be where You are – I pray that You help me to achieve this and give me the grace to serve You to the end. I know that Jesus is The Key to eternal life. Amen.
