IF ONLY THE DEAD COULD TALK AT THEIR FUNERAL. THEN THE LIVING, WALKING DEAD WOULD KNOW THE TRUTH.
I am writing this because recently I came home from an orthodox Jewish funeral service for the last remaining Holocaust Survivor in my family.
It was touching to have the son’s; daughters and grandchildren come up to speak of their love for their Grandfather.
It was heart breaking to watch as they poured out their own tears speaking of their love for the departed.
Then the orthodox rabbi came up, the learned scholar, the righteous man came up to speak about the departed. He spoke eloquently about their faith in God, about their kindness, about their giving to charities and about how God considers them righteous before Him because of their good works.
He said we would all, together see the departed in heaven, where he now waits for us. This rabbi as all rabbis do, picked and choose Old Testament Scriptures out of context showing himself to be a man who understood the word of God; all the while giving everyone false eternal security based on false statements.
Rabbis have said to me, that at the end of this dark tunnel we call life they see light from heaven. The reality of their statement is that if you do not realize that you are a sinner in need of being Saved by a Savior, then the light you see in the distance is not light from Heaven; but the fire from an inferno that awaits you. An Eternal fire you do not want to enter.
