A Promise From God

A Promise From God  

            Just this morning we saw that my little bunny Cinnamon died. We are very sad. But this reminds me of a subject most people don’t like to talk about. Death.
People don’t like to talk about this, but we have to face facts. We are all going to die, whether we like it or not. That is why we have to be ready to meet our maker. Death is part of the curse. When Adam and Eve left the garden, death entered the world.

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature is able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39 KJV) This wonderful verse tells us that if we are truly Christians, and love God with all our hearts, we don’t have to be afraid to die, or be separated from our loved ones. Because nothing, yes I said nothing, will ever separate us from the love of God. We don’t have to be afraid to die, because, unlike the non-Christians, we know that we will live in eternity with Jesus in heaven after we die. If we are deep under the ocean, God is with us. If we are on the highest mountain, God is with us. We don’t have anything to be afraid of! Isn’t that wonderful?
“Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin, and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” (James 1:15 KJV) You see, when you sin, you are going to go into eternal death. Hell. But you have hope! If you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, you shall be saved, from death in hell! So I ask you today. Do you believe on Jesus, the Lord of Lords, and God of Gods? If you don’t, I beg you, come to Jesus! He can save you from eternal condemnation! Just put your trust on him! He died so all of his chosen would be with him in Heaven.

For those who are Christians, you don’t need to be afraid to die. God will always be with you through thick and thin. In Joshua 1:9 it says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest.” Isn’t that a wonderful promise? God will always be with you.
