It is so hard when a loved one dies especially when it’s somebody so close. So many people say that we only have “one life to live”, or the expression of YOLO ( you only live once ). Which it is so far from the truth… We only live once in this world and system that we live in now, but a new one is coming, a new world to be exact! (Isaiah 65:17)
You see our God created this world to be a paradise and be populated by mankind in its paradise state (Genesis 2:15), but that was all cut short when an issue arose when Lucifer rebelled and slandered against God by getting Eve and Adam to disobey, then stating that he could get all mankind to serve him (James 1:13-15),(Genesis 3:1-5). Our heavenly father could have done away with Satan, Adam & Eve, but how would of that looked to all the legions of angels watching this unfold. Had God just wiped them three out for their disobedience, it would have caused the other angels to question God’s sovereignty, possibly that Lucifer was correct and may of cause other angels to fall as his son Lucifer did. So we now live in the system where death is all around us and is steadily trying to consume us prior to a proper standing with our father (Genesis 2:17). Thus we have one temporary life where Satan tries to mislead and lure (Matthew 4: 8-10) us into a life without a relationship with Jehovah God and Jesus Christ, so we don’t reap the true reward which is to come, an everlasting life on a paradise earth has God stated would happen and be done in Genesis (Psalm 37: 10-11), (Leviticus 25:18-19). What God states always comes to fold, so as he stated, the dead will be raised and have a chance to live on the paradise earth (Psalm 37:29), (Acts 24:15), (Proverbs 11:30) as he also stated to Satan that in the end, there will still be my people/church, and you will know them by the fruit that they bare. We can look forward to these promises (Isaiah 55:11) as we can look forward to seeing our loved ones again that are in the grave resting. A new earth is coming and the end comes for us all, but its what we do with this brief period of time that deciphers whether we inherit the true meaning of life, which is to live forever in a paradise earth. To learn of the knowledge of God, as we were designed/created in Gods image and likeness (2 Peter 3:13)!
Death is not the end, but born into sin can be if we don’t mend the bridge… a personal relationship with our father and Christ, which in return can keep us from our inheritance that Satan is trying to steal from us (Matthew 4:10). Death is just temporary and a reunion is in the works!!! (Revelation 1:18)
