I don't know if you've seen my comments around the forums. I'm not the most consistent poster, my thoughts tend to cover a wide array of subjects &
I'm often to be found thinking about randomly different topics day by day. This is just how things have turned out for me, being disabled & unable to
work, has left me with much time to discover interesting material & research mysterious subjects. Some of my favourite things are ancient megalithic
cultures, the Hebrew & Mesopotamian legends of the gods & giants; spiritual matters according to a trend of 'mercy over judgement' - I dislike in the
extreme the way that certain groups propagate the myth that if you haven't said a little five line prayer then you're damned for all eternity.
Plainly rubbish, and the God I know abounds in grace & love, being the very nature & source of life itself.
So what about the thread title? Well, this afternoon I've been quite unwell, and having finally started to drift into sleep - but not quite there - I
found myself in hypnogogia, seeing visions of wondrous light, the action & activity of God, perhaps angelic beings, on the Earth. I saw that we seem
to be heading towards a time of violent conflagration, with perhaps the days of 'wars, and rumours of wars', maybe this pandemic & economic recession
will turn into a collapse, with a shooting war following on from it at some stage..
I had a particular vision which woke me fully, not with a jolt, but rather with a rush of emotion. I had found myself walking in some area (didn't
have time to really take in the surroundings, as it was being lit up with huge explosions). All of a sudden, an enormous blast whooshed across the
landscape, vapourising everything of flesh & bone, buildings & trees, cars & animals - everything. Perhaps a battlefield nuke, as it seemed to
destroy a 2km squared area, so not massive, more tactical than total destruction. It occurred as a great surprise, with that surprise amplified with
excitement, because as soon as that blast had incinerated my body, my soul was drawn upwards by the powers of light, by the angels, or the Lord
Himself.. The point is, that the event wasn't terrifying at all. It was exciting rather than terrifying, and the sense of elation in the moment of
death/enrapture was incredible. There was no pain, no sadness, no regret, no nostalgia or fear - everything was in hand, all was at ease in the
larger scheme of things. I had often wondered if I would feel saddened that I had left people behind, if I was first to die - but no, I had the
reassurance that everything in good time, at the appointed time, that there is no separation in the hereafter, and a hundred years can be as a moment,
or a moment as a hundred years.
Everything was 'prepared' for me, and for all those who died with me. We all were being drawn to those places, though I didn't see exactly what &
where, I knew that it was going to be wonderful. God knows our innermost being, and He prepares a place for us which will suit us to heights we
cannot even imagine.. His power was there in an immediate, immanent sense, the power flies alongside us, guiding & calming (the 'angel of the
presence', in a sense, because God was everywhere in that moment - seems a silly to say, but it really is true) - "In my father's house, there are
many mansions.." And it would seem that wherever we are personally, there would be ease of access to be with others as we all choose.
I can't provide a complex picture of what actually comes afterwards, but I want you to know that in the moment of death, and the destruction of your
body, you are cared for, immediately comforted by the inward presence of God, guided & calmed by angels, reassured, unafraid & excited. He has it all
in hand, and the mysteries I suppose can be unravelled throughout eternity in our travels beyond this world.
God bless & Godspeed.. If we face the darkness of this world, be assured that the Light overcomes this world, simply believe; do the best you
can with your talent/s.. Whatever we face now or in the future, God has it covered. Free will cannot be tampered with, and almost all the
evils you see in this world come about through an inappropriate use of free will - the fallen state of the soul which feels it must accumulate,
dominate & control others. As these sorts interact with others like them, injustice grows. Each of us is fallen to some extent, but we are
loved & understood. We just do our best with what has been given to us, to love & look after those around us. If we resist evil & seek the Light,
then we will find Christ, and we will see Him everywhere, so that our every gesture & action is undertaken to bless, doing His will for those we come
into contact with. If we seek to bless those we meet at every time we encounter them, then we are doing Heaven's work. Jesus is the Christ, who died
& rose again, bringing new life to all who need it. Seek & find, and all will be well. [/evangelism]
