To everything there is a
A time for every
A time to be born,
And a time to die;
We were pretty sure of my brother’s diagnosis. Now we need to go to a cancer doctor. The next step is to see if he is a candidate for the whipple surgical procedure. The doctor that did his endoscopy did not sound as if it was promising.
My prayer for my brother is that he has peace. He is questioning why he has to die in such pain. He has been very ill since September. There was no warning. It was just there, the pain. So pray for him to have strength and trust in the Lord no matter what happens. He is doubting that he has done enough to be worthy. None of us are worthy to be with the Lord. Only through Our Lord Jesus Christ, are our sins washed away by His blood on the cross, His death and His resurrection. God’s grace through faith that calls His people to Him to be born again, saved. (John 3:3) Most Assuredly, “I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
We don’ t know anything about the Lord’s will for our deaths. My dad died in March 2012 of the same cancer. So many doctors are now believing it is hereditary. Pray for all Christians persecuted, dying, for strength and perseverance. And we pray for unbelievers that the Lord has mercy on their souls. That they turn to Him because they are broken and weak and nothing of themselves can save them. No good works, nothing. Only with God is it possible.
We as Christians know it is absent from the body and present with the Lord.
So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. (2 Corinthians 5:6-8); (2 Corinthians Chapter 5)
We know that it is appointed once to die. There will be no second death for us.
Fear the Lord and His wrath now.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (Revelation 20-14:15)
We have that peace that we will be in heaven with the Lord, no matter. Still knowing you are dying is not easy, even as a Christian.
Don’t scoff, because that day will come and you will meet your Creator. You can meet Him in peace and love, repent your sins, and take up your cross and follow Him, or face His wrath.
The Sixth Seal: Cosmic Disturbances (Revelation 6:12-17)
And the kings of the earth, the great men, the commanders , the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Revelation 6:16-17) This just a little bit of what will be faced.
All Things made New (Revelation 22:1-27)
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. (Revelation 21:4)
The River of Life (Revelation 22:1-20)
He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”
Amen. even so, come, Lord Jesus!
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. (Revelation 22:20-21)
