The night he died... I had a lot of questions permeating in my mind.
One of my question was "could we meet again?"
Retorical as it is, but I believe that death won't do us part.
Death won't do us part
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, -John 11:25
For so long, philosophers and writers have been trying their best to compile a variety of important arguments concerning life after death. But they haven't managed to console wounded heart or comforts those who's restless and perplexed.
But Jesus would always be able to satisfy us! He won't offer any philosophical argument. He won't try to prove that eternity is plausible. He did declared it, He said what he knew and answered with the glory of heaven, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live. There's two aspect of resurrection: one's body will be resurrected, and one's spirit will live in heaven.
What does this mean for Christian who is mourning the death of a loved ones?
Death won't cut our bond of love, for love itself lies within spirits, not in the body.
Imagine it this way, our loved one is on their long... long journey
but their mind could traverse this great distance, as if it's only just an inch from us.
and their love would engulf us, just like they're right beside us.
Are you currently mourning the loss of a loved one?
Jesus promised that one day we would be reunited again when He send our precious one back to us.
Death is not the end of life. Jesus conquered and defeated sin for us by his death and burial, and with our faith to Him, "We wouldn't be dead forever" (John 11:25-26); "We have eternal life!" (John 3:16); "We have our place in heaven" (John 14:1-6), "We will achieve resurrected body" (1 Chorintian 15:51,52). And, "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." (1Thessalonians 4:14);
So there would be a reunion full of glory, for all of us, for those who we loved, and for those who stay with the Lord!
