Death Can Be A Friend

death Grunge TextI have seen people suffer from a debilitation illness and it can be absolutely horrific for the one experiencing the suffering and for the one ministering to them. I remember being with a family as their family member fought bone cancer – death was a welcomed friend. I’ve been by the bedside of a dying family member who lived for days in a comatose state – death was welcomed friend. I know that this is a bit of a dark topic, but I came across a part of John’s Revelation vision that had people who disobeyed the Lord being punished in the last days.  Check this out….

They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes. During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them. (Revelation 9:5-6 NIV)


I want to walk in the Light of the Word of God. I want to follow Jesus and continue on a life-long journey of following Him. I ‘m not going to let the fear of death paralyze me from living life today. I want to make my life count so that in death God will be honored. I don’t believe that death here on earth is all there is. I believe in eternal life after death and I can spend eternity in my heavenly home.  I also believe in a place of eternal destruction and torment where people will want to die, but can’t. I choose life here on earth through Jesus Christ so that death is not an enemy.

Pressing On!
