The world we live in has made us believe that everything exists because of the hands and knowledge of scientists. But wait a minute and think. Is there any person who can say that they are confident that human hands have created them? I definitely believe that no one can say that only those who do not stop to think.
The world has changed, and we are now living in an era where technology has advanced even to a higher level. With this, humans have totally forgotten their creator, the one and the Only Lord of their lives. We think we can do without him, ignoring the fact that we are living because of his spirit in us. If He decides to remove his spirit, our bodies become lifeless, and that is where death comes in.
Have you ever thought of what happens to the soul after it departs from the body? I mean when death arrives? There is life after death, and real life begins when we die. The life we live here on earth is shorter as compared to the life we will live after death. This is because even if our bodies might have died physically, our souls never die but live eternally.
When the soul leaves the body, there is someone who comes to fetch it, depending on the status of that person's heart; whether their heart was committed or away from God. Some people smile while others frown and scream when they are about to die. This is because they could see the one coming to take their soul.
Listen and take this teaching into account. Heaven and Hell is a reality, and we have the opportunity to choose where our souls will spend eternity while we are alive. When we die, there is no turning back, it is done, and everyone shall reap the consequences of their actions.
Many people have despised this teaching and are now regretting, wishing to return to earth and inform their beloved, but it is too late for them. God created us to serve Him with our lives, putting Him first in all that we do, so that all may be well with us, especially our inner being. God knows us more than we know ourselves; He searches our minds and knows the intentions of our hearts. Nothing can be hidden from his sight. This is a call for all of us to take responsibility and run away from evil in order to win 'God's favour upon our lives. He is the Beginning and the End; the Author and Finisher of life.
The truth hurts, but it is the only weapon that can set us free. When you speak the truth, you are relieved and have a peace of mind. God is just and cannot tolerate injustice. Therefore, 'let's think about this day and night. Our souls are valuable more than material wealth.
