A friend recently e mailed, telling me some things she was thinking about. I started asking myself the same questions & questioning my own personal beliefs.
The first thing she asked herself was ‘is there really a heaven?’ If so, she pondered, does your soul go there when you die? Oh yes, most definitely there is a heaven. Ask many people what they thing ‘heaven’ is, and they point to the sky. To them heaven is something high above the clouds which they are unable to describe. All they can tell me is that heaven is up there, where God lives. When I die, I believe my soul will become a source of energy that God will use for the better good wherever he sees fit..
To me, heaven is on earth & is something easily attainable. I can live in heaven every day as long as I do the right things. I am already living in a world created by God. To live in heaven all I have to do is follow the word of Jesus. I read my Bible daily in conjunction with Bible Alive. I watch the great Joyce Meyer each day & listen to her preach. Less than an hour out of my day; that’s all. Every day I commend my life to God. I control my thoughts, words & deeds so that I resist the Devil & his works. Yes, I have days where nothing goes right. We all do. The secret is for you to take control & not the Devil! Think about it.
My friend also asked herself why men start wars. They start them because they have let the Devil into their hearts & minds. The men who start wars are jealous & greedy men. They are selfish & can’t see beyond their own nose. All they are concerned with is their own wants & desires.
They are weak men who are easy prey for the Devil. We are all individuals with different ideas, feelings & needs. We need to be tolerant & understanding of each other. Respect each other.
Kick the Devil into touch.
Belinda Carlisle once sang ‘Heaven is a place on earth.’ Go figure........
