Your physical journey here is like climbing a mountain to get to the top.
When you have arrived you will stand before a door. Your focus on your climb will have been so intense that you will not notice the small sign above the door.
Then you will eagerly reach out and grasp the handle to open the door to the fulfillment of your desires. The handle is painful to your touch…it’s so very hot ! But you will bear the pain and open the door because you will be consumed with what you heard awaits you.
Standing in the open doorway you see a light off in the distance, yet you seem to be standing in shadows. As you look out into the distance a faint path emerges that leads to the light. But as you look down you cannot see the place to put your foot on the path so that you can follow it to the Eternal Kingdom of Light.
Then you will look up and see the little sign. It says… “If you had SEEKED ME with all your heart, mind and soul you would have found me. You have lived your life in darkness yet you have seen a great light and now it is appointed to man once to die, and then the judgment”.
HIS words fall on a soul filled with shadows and a heart and mind that never became renewed; for you had lived your life deaf, dumb and blind to the truth.
Just under the sign is a pull chain attached to a light bulb. Still not understanding the message you will reach up and pull the chain that’s attached to the light bulb expecting the light to come on and illuminate your path, but instead you will turn ON the Darkness. Congratulations you have arrived at the place you personally have chosen to spend eternity. You now will be in outer darkness…blind and alone for eternity without hope in a place where … “the dead shall live again.”
The Bible gives us in-sight into the physical world we think is real; and into the invisible world that is true reality. The spiritual dimension is more real than our own existence. The physical realm is ending, but the spiritual realm is forever.
