Before I begin, I urge you to carefully read through with scrutiny and be prepared less for critiques. If you feel you may be distracted, don’t read now, you can save this post for later, because information that rekindles the mind is about to be affirmed. Many of us have also thought that death is invisible, we sometimes think that death has always had the best of us because we grieve when death takes away someone will love, we sometimes think that death always win. But I wrote this to let you know that death can only win if we let it. As the Bible say, “after death is judgment”, we don’t even know how we will be judged when we die. I had this dream sometime ago that clearly states how God Almighty will judge us when we die. The dream explained that our judgement and decision is on where we are to be (heaven or hell) is weighed by our deeds. If your good deeds on earth is more than your bad deeds, then, heaven for you, but if your bad deeds exceeds your good deeds, then, hell for you. Some might not see sense is this because we’ve got many atheist around us. But, even as an atheist, don’t you feel happy when you show kindness to someone?, don’t you sometimes get goose bumps when you realize you’ve been of such great help to somebody?. Now, that’s exactly how we can defeat death.
I’m going to speak from two sides, viz; a Christian/Muslim and an atheist.
A christian may think that death may come from the Lord or the devil but approved by God, because anything that occurs on earth has been assented by God. If death comes from God, that possibly implies many things but one of them could be that, He wants you to come home and rest because of how kind, loving, generous and obedient you’ve been in this wicked world. The devil, on the other hand is a roaring lion seeking for whom to devour, he may want to hurt you and the ones you love by sending death to steal your joy. He may sometimes think that he is the smartest creature that was created but might even end up being the most foolish. Death is just like an errand boy that has no love or hatred for anyone which the devil uses to inflict pain on the righteous. If the deceased is a kind, loving, faithful, obedient and generous person, you should ease your mind because life after death on such person may be fair. God always told us in the Bible that we should be generous and loving and even said the only way we could give to Him is if we give to the poor and needy. No matter how poor you are there’s someone around you that is poorer and is in desperate need of your help, even if the person doesn’t ask for help, the Bible says we should give. The Bible says that we have all sinned against God, so, how will God judge a righteous person that sinned and didn’t ask for forgiveness before death came? Pass on good deeds so that when you exit earth you’ll know the measure of your judgement because the Bible says that the measure you use for others is the one that God will use for you.
Now, in content to the atheist. I know of an atheist that told me that he doesn’t beleive there’s heaven or hell, he described even God as a myth. But, when you die, how do people tell about you? Were you kind? Were you generous? Were you loving? These questions matter. As we all know that, there’s so many assumption of life after death, even, all these I’ve said is even an assumption that may be true. But, there’s this feeling of happiness we get when we show kindness to the needy.
I stand on a concrete ground to tell you all that my friend who passed away defeated death.
In conclusion, I leave y’all with these;
- The life you live is not yours
- The measure of deeds you pass on to someone, is the same measure you’ll receive
- If you build yourself for yourself you build for nothing
- Heaven doesn’t value what you have but what you give
- Death can take you but not your deeds
- Live everyday like it’s your last
