What is Waiting For You After Death?

I went into my classroom
Ready for another year at school.
I didn’t want the work,
Just wanted to hang and be cool.

I had on new clothes,
New sneaks on my feet.
I was there for class on time
Went to the back and took my seat.

Yeah, I’m moving up.
I’m already grown.
Soon I’ll be graduating
And out on my own.

I talked to some of my friends.
We were all having fun.
Said some things I shouldn’t have said,
Did stuff I shouldn’t have done.

I knew I was different.
I felt God touch my heart.
I knew I should set a standard,
But then I’d be set apart.

Walking to the bus,
was not looking for strength.
I heard the car tires screeching,
But now it’s too late.

I’m standing in this room
And I can see the heavenly gate.
Oh no!I never prayed.
I thought I had time to get it straight.

An angel walked to me.
He had a book in his hand.
I knew it was the Book of Life.
When would this dream end?

I told him my name
And he began to look.
Then he looked at me sadly and said
Your name is not in this book.

Angel, this is a dream.
No, I can’t be dead!
He closed the book and turned away.
He whispered – You cannot proceed ahead.

No…no this can’t be real.
Angel, you can’t turn me away.
Let me talk to God.
Maybe He’ll let me stay.

He led me to the gate.
Jesus came to me,
He did not let me in but said,
Beloved what is your need?

Jesus, I cried, please
Don’t cast me away from you.
Tears ran down His face as He said,
You knew what you needed to do.

Lord, please I’m young.
I never thought I would die.
I thought I’d have plenty of time.
Death caught me by surprise.

Lord, I went to church.
Please Jesus, I believe.
He said you would not accept me.
My love you would not receive.

Lord, there were too many hypocrites.
They weren’t being true.
He took a step back and asked
What does that have to do with you?

Lord, my family claimed to be saved,
They weren’t real.You know.
He said, I died for you.
Now I have to go.

I fell to my knees crying to Him.
Lord, I planned to be real tomorrow
I couldn’t, make Him understand.
I had never — felt such sorrow.

Then it hit me hard, I said
Lord, where will I go?
He looked into my eyes and said,
My child you already know.

Please Jesus, I begged
The place is so hot.
It seemed to trouble and grieve Him.
He whispered, depart from me, I know you not.

Lord, you’re supposed to be love.
How can you send me to damnation?
He replied, With your mouth you said you loved me,
But each day you rejected my salvation.

With that in an instant,
Day turned into night.
I never knew such torture could be.
Now too late, I know the Bible is right.

If I can tell you anything,
Hell has no age.
It is a place of torture,
Separated from God and full of rage.

You know I thought it was funny — a joke,
But this one thing is true.
If you never accept Jesus Christ
Hell is waiting for you.

A Friend of mine, Markson, sent this poem to me and it is best you accept Jesus. Don’t be discouraged by the ungodly behaviour of the acclaimed saved.

Obey his Words and you don’t need to worry about hell.

The Race Called Life

I came across this piece by a friend of mine, Esther, and I just have to share it.

Over time I’ve discovered there is no absolute finish line for everyone in the race of life. Our tracks are different and our durations are different. The only thing we have in common is the same empire.

For instance, one person graduates at age 20 and struggles for another 5 years to get a job, another might graduate at 25 and get a job immediately.

One can marry a virgin and wait for the next decade to have the blessing of children, another lady probably after having series of abortions in her past, becomes a mother almost immediately after marriage.

A fellow becomes MD at 38 and dies at 56, another becomes MD at 55 and lives to 90.

What a life?
Life is full of twists, turns-ups and downs and many more surprises and disappointments. Life offers each and everyone of us different opportunities and once an opportunity is lost, it’s gone forever except by the grace of God.

It is up to each one of us to patiently prepare, wait, recognise and utilize every opportunity. We learn on the way.
No one has it all or knows it all.

There is a reason why we all don’t fall at the same time, It’s so that when one is down, weak and discouraged, the other who is strong can encourage and lift the other person.

God never promises that the road would be easy, but he promised never to leave or forsake us. Although life is complicated, let us learn to go easy on ourselves and trust that God is working it all out for our good (even if it doesn’t make sense now).

Whatever trials, challenges or down times we face, all shall pass and in due course, we will be up and strong again to lift up those who may be down around us. NEVER LOOSE HOPE… We all have a story to tell someday…
Pass this on to your friends to encourage them in their journey called LIFE. Have a stress free day.

Be positive, believe and have faith in God. Help others, encourage others, He watches.
