The only thing we humans know for sure is we all one day will take our last breath of air and our time will expire on this earth. The reality is the only one who knows is the One who created us. Some humans believe they can figure it out. You may check out The Death Clock; http://www.deathclock.com/ The Bible says we do not stop to exist when we die in our bodily form. We will one day resurrect and get new bodies. We will all live eternally in either heaven or hell. The eternal question is; Where will you spend eternity? Like perishable food we all have an expiration date. Do you know yours? Do you live your life in joy praising the Lord? Do you take tomorrow for granted? Do you know this could be your last day? "Come now, you who say, 'Today or tomorrow, we shall go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make profit.' Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead you ought to say, 'If the Lord wills, we shall live and also do this or that.' But as it is, you boast in your arrogance, all such boasting is evil. Therefore to one who knows the right thing to do, and does not do it, to him it is sin." James 4:13-17
You are only one heart beat away from standing before the throne of the Lord Jesus who will judge all you have done. Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 If your name is not written in the book of life you will be thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:15 Do you enjoy life to the fullest? Are you pleasant for others to be around? Do you grumble and complain your life away? If you are miserable it could be because You live separated from God Jesus. Only through Him will you ever find true peace, love, joy and happiness forever. No human being can give you true love and peace. Jesus is your only real life insurance To buy life insurance is a good thing to do to ensure those you leave behind when you expire will be taken care of financially. But what about you? Have you got life insurance for yourself ? What about your family and loved ones? You may look around here on this website and find your life insurance for eternity and your ticket to heaven. http://www.street-ministry.org/jesussaves/whyasavior.html
I am not trying to be morbid. All seeds have to die for something to grow to new life. So it is with us humans. We need to die to our old selfish flesh and be born again in the Spirit. When you receive new life in Christ you will never expire. Think about it,..while I take a break without breaking anything,.. and continue this study some other time. I had a thought and simply "had to" write and see what happened,... oh, if you find out where people are going when people tell you; "there you go", or if you ever meet that "nobody" people talk so much about and find "nowhere",.. would you send me an e-mail and let me in on the deal? LOL! Invest in God's kingdom as written in Matthew 6:19-34.

WHEN WILL THIS BAD DREAM END?
I had on new clothes,
New sneaks on my feet.
I was there for the class on time,
Went to the back and took my seat.
Yeah! I am moving up,
I am already grown.
Soon I will be graduating,
And out on my own.
I talked to some of my friends,
We were all having fun.
Said some things I should not have said,
Did stuff I should not have done.
I knew I was different.
I felt God touch my heart,
I knew I should set a standard,
But then I would be set apart.
Walking to the bus,
I was looking for strength.
I heard the car tires screeching,
But now it iss too late,?.
I am standing in this room,
And I can see the heavenly gate.
Oh no! I never prayed!!!!
I thought I had time to get it straight.
An angel walked to me,
He had a book in his hand.
I knew it was the Book of Life,
When would this dream end?
I told him my name,
And he began to look.
Then he looked at me sadly and said;
Your name is not in this book.
Angel, this is a dream,
No! I can not be dead!
He closed the book and turned away,
He whispered-You cannot proceed ahead.
No,..no this can not be real,
Angel, you can not turn me away.
Let me talk to God,
Maybe He will let me stay?
He led me to the gate,
Jesus came to me.
He did not let me in but said;
Beloved what is your need??
Jesus, I cried, please
Do not cast me away from You.
Tears ran down His face as He said;
You knew what you needed to do.?
LORD, please I am young,
I never thought I would die.
I thought I would have plenty of time,
Death caught me by surprise.
LORD, I went to church,
Please Jesus, I believe.
He said; You would not accept Me,
My love you would not receive.?
LORD, there were too many hypocrites,
They were not being true He took a step back and asked; "What does that have to do with you?"
LORD, my family claimed to be saved They were not real, You know!
He said; I died for you,
Now I have to go.
I fell to my knees crying to Him,
LORD, I planned to be real tomorrow.
I could not make Him understand,
I had never felt such sorrow.
Then it hit me hard, I said
LORD, where will I go?
He looked me into my eyes and said;
My child you already know.
Please Jesus, I begged,
The place is so hot.
It seemed to trouble and grieve Him,
He whispered; Depart from Me, I know you not.
LORD, You are supposed to be love.
How can You send me to damnation?
He replied; With your mouth you said you loved Me,
But each day you rejected my Salvation.
With that in an instant,
Day turned into night.
I never knew such torture could be,
Now too late, I finally see.
If I can tell you anything I know
The Bible is right, hell has no age.
It is a place of torture
Separated from God Jesus and full of rage.
I thought it was a funny-joke,
But this one thing is true.
If you never accept Jesus
Hell is waiting for you.
End of quote from an e-mail I received Thursday April 20, 2000. Might not be a coincident but for those who play with fire looking for power from the devil might know what date that is.
As I typed in this poem the following Scriptures came to mind;
John 3:16-18 Matthew 7:21-23
And Hebrews 9:19-28 You might want to open a Bible and check it out,.. your life depends on it. THE BIBLE SAYS; ONCE TO DIE THEN JUDGMENT!!!!
IT IS ALL ABOUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS SACRIFICED ON THE CROSS FOR THE SINS OF MANY !
Heb 9:19 For when every commandment had been spoken by Moses to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of the calves and the goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people. Heb 9:20 saying, "This is the blood of the covenant which God commanded toward you." Heb 9:21 Moreover he sprinkled the tent and all the vessels of the ministry in like manner with the blood. Heb 9:22 According to the law, nearly everything is cleansed with blood, and apart from shedding of blood there is no remission. Heb 9:23 It was necessary therefore that the copies of the things in the heavens should be cleansed with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. Heb 9:24 For Christ entered not into a holy place made with hands, similar in pattern to the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear before the face of God for us; Heb 9:25 nor yet that He should offer himself often, as the high priest enters into the holy place year by year with blood not his own, Heb 9:26 or else he must have suffered often since the foundation of the world. But now once at the end of the ages, he has been revealed to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. Heb 9:27 Inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once, and after this, judgment, Heb 9:28 so Christ also, having been once offered to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, without sin, to those who are eagerly waiting for Him (JESUS) for salvation.
