Brother Monk…what has put you in such a contrary mood? You, of all my holy ones, are most favored, I am sure, by the Lord Jesus. He knows your heart and your great love for Him, and He hears your constant prayers. He knows how you put your life on the line for Him, even facing certain death,
when, on your missionary trip to Uganda, you stood face to face with a Muslim rebel gang leader who ordered you to renounce Jesus or die!
O Father, when I go out into the world, and have a chance to talk to people, even Christians, no one wants to hear about what God has in store for them when they die! There is no concern about death, only the present and all the things they are caught up on in the world. And I want to tell them their eternal future, them and their family and friends, their eternal future after this short life, for we all must die some day, sooner or later. It is not important to them, but my heart hurts for them , and I want to tell them the things I have learned by the grace of God. And…
Well, Brother Monk, write what’s on your heart, and send it out into the sea, perhaps many bottles, and someone, somewhere will find it.
To Whom It May Concern:
When you die, what then? What shall happen to your body and soul? How shall your remains be handled? Will you be buried? If so, where?
And what of your immortal soul? Where will it go until the resurrection?
Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the Father Almighty, is the only way to salvation and eternal life with Him forever! He is the only way to the Father. Call on the name of the Lord and ask forgiveness, and believe on Him, for what is written in the Holy Word of God?
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession in made unto salvation. For whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
The present world, even as in all previous centuries, is made up of believers and unbelievers: those who believe in Jesus, Yeshua, and His atoning death for the sins of the world, and those who don’t. There are only Gentile-Christian and Jewish believers, and Jewish and Gentile unbelievers, period! There is no other way; there is no other grouping…
Just before your death, at your ery last breath, what you believe in your heart determines in which direction your immortal soul-spirit goes…upward or downward…to heaven or to hell…
Jesus and Paul said the Christian body sleeps in Jesus at death, but the soul soars upward to heaven in spirit form to be with the Lord. Whereas the soul of the unbeliever travels immediately to hell away from the Lord. There it shall stay until the resurrection after the Millennial Kingdom on earth when Christ shall rule. They shall face Christ and be judged and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire for all eternity.
When Jesus comes out of heaven to resurrection His church-His believers, He shall bring with Him the souls of all believers in heaven, and shall put them into their bodies in the grave. And they shall be resurrected with new, glorified, immortal bodies like Christ’s body, and we shall follow Him to heaven, and after seven years of the Great Tribulation to the unbelieving people on earth, we shall return with Him back to earth as He crushes His foes, saves His people, and establishes His Kingdom of a thousand years. And so shall we ever be with the Lord.
But the souls of the unbelievers shall remain in hell.
We, and the Tribulation saints, and all the Old Testament saints shall feast with the Lord Jesus at the Supper of the Lord for a thousand years.
If you have not accepted the Lord Jesus into your heart, let Him in, for He has been knocking at the door of your heart for some time now.
This day, my prayer is for one more Gentile, one more Jew come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus as their Savior.
There is only forgiveness, only salvation, only escape from the wrath of God to come upon on the whole earth, only eternal life after death, only in Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords…He is coming soon…
And so the roads we trod in life, the broad and the narrow, and the journey beyond…
Even so, come Lord Jesus…
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
