How to know you are about to die

Death is Real

Dying for your Christian Faith

Death is one thing every living person should not have a question about except for one – when will it happen? Ecclesiastes 9:5 confirms this obvious fact. Needless to argue about it, we are all on an impending death list. However, it is normal and expected for the old to die first. Just as Isaac of old prepared himself by blessing his son timely because he clearly knew he wouldn’t live forever but knew just from understanding his age  (Genesis 27:2). Probably he was close to the 180 years which the Bible records were the actual years he lived in this world.

Reviewing the reality of death through celebrities and everybody else that died in 2016

2016-10-14-15-57-52All the living know that they will die but not with certainty on when it will happen. This is reality that awaits every living person without anyone’s influence. Not one person, even a doctor can stop a person from dying. Death is not a choice but a given and it comes at will to anyone. I’m sure that everyone that can read this knows and appreciates this fact. Any other differing message is from the devil who is a liar that many people are not aware of.

I once learnt of a group of people in Africa who have been deceived to believe that their religious practices, which is driven by evil powers, can bring a person back to life when they die. The devil had made it possible for them to see people come back to life when they had died. This lie could be going on and deceiving many to ignore the reality of death. I write to sensitize you on the fact that death is a as close as blinking an eye to you as the case is with every other living person.

What to do when you believe that God does not answer your prayers?

BibleTime and time again things will not work out to be what we want them to be. We are faced with pressures from all angles, sometimes to the point of thinking that God does not exists or if He does exist, He possibly does not care. Many people pray, even non-believers do pray to God when they are faced with life challenges. When we do pray and our prayers are not answered, often to the point we don’t know what to say to God for Him to answer, our desperate prayers we tend to lose hope. I’m sure you can relate on a case where you also felt the same or you are facing that as you read this post.

Before I go to how our attitude should be in such cases, I want to start by referencing what other believers cited in the Bible did when faced with similar situations.

Is it God or the devil who tells the time to die?

Death is Real

Dying for your Christian Faith

People die in in their numbers every minute and apparently that is the way it is. There are even calculated estimates on the number of deaths around the world. There is a website by the name worldbirthsanddeaths.com that simulates the number of deaths and I really believe it indicates a close to accurate global occurrence of deaths.

Why does some sickness remain stubborn to prayer even after fasting?

sicknessDid you know that sometimes even after long time prayers have been made over some sickness or disease, healing may still not come? Does it then mean that God is not willing to heal us from such sickness? Sometimes such instances break your faith and doubts come to mind as to whether God exists in His trinity at all. You tend to ask yourself questions as to whether Jesus is willing to heal you or not.

Some people who had faith in Jesus to heal their sicknesses, their relatives’ sicknesses and their loved ones got a shock of their lives when those people prayed for never recovered but kept suffering and some ended up dead. I know a brother who even gave up Christianity because he prayed so much for his mother to recover from some sickness but she did not and to die at the end of it all.

The thin line between being alive and being dead

DeathIf mankind understood clearly the reality of how life and death are so close to each other and their reality, I don’t think people would be living their lives the way they do. I have had a privilege to read a book by Trudy Harris titled ‘Glimpses of Heaven’ where she narrates interesting utterances of people that are hear death who eventually die. The book makes it clear that dying is as good as moving from the kitchen into the dinning room. There is no moment of darkness or switching but the person has all his or her senses alive when death comes.

Other than that people die unceremoniously, people also live in full view of the spiritual beings of both the kingdom of God and that of the devil. Records are kept and there is not even a slight chance of having a mistaken record in your account. The appropriate spirits are ready to escort each person that die to his or her place of waiting for judgment. When man dies, the body goes back to the ground where it belongs and the soul faces God who then passes judgement accordingly (Ecclesiastes 12:7).

The deception on healthy living and living longer

Healthy living does not add life to people

Healthy living does not add life to people

Healthy living is good and I believe God supports it as He surely is not happy when we are sick and suffering. This is reveal by Jesus when He healed a leaper. Read the article, ‘Jesus’ will for your health condition’.

An additional reason why it seems like the devil is winning against God

winThe truth is that God is winning against the devil but the reason why it seems it is not the case is that, ‘Some pastors preach what they think but not what the Bible teaches’. Hear me out in the following post.

The devil seems to be winning when pastors preach their self-pleasing and Word twisting messages which are logically structured to impress the audience. This is happening as Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 4:3, For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear’ – NIV. You will notice that such preachers add to the impression that the devil is winning against God as many people are led astray right from the pulpit. It would seem like that is how this whole life issue is structured. Hear Jesus when He declared that the way that leads to life is narrow and the one that leads to destruction is broad (Matthew 7:13 – 14).

6 reasons why it is dangerous to take chances with sin

Danger!The Bible teaches everyone about sin and how it is such an abomination to God. Even when you don’t care about Christianity but you must at least know that God cannot tolerate sin. Therefore, each time you commit any kind of sin, whether you do it intentionally or due to circumstances, know that God has it on record for the judgment day.

The good news is that this record can only change when you reconcile with God through His son Jesus Christ. Why is it like that? There is no human satisfactory answer but the long and short of it is that God is not like man in thought and in deed.

Does God number our days or we die due to our negligence?

Head-on Car AccidentDoes it count how we safeguard our lives, practice healthy living and other cautious measures to be safe from death or it solely depends on the number of days God has set for each one of us? Does God need a thug, an accident or anything unnatural to fulfill His word of having numbered the days of the living? I will give the answer later in this post.

I will unpack some verses and add some thoughts I collected when discussing the demise of a husband to one of our church mothers that was killed by a thug in about five years ago. The question this woman had was as already highlighted in the opening paragraph.

Some rich people condemn themselves to hell, not Jesus

RichI once read a post online where someone was saying that Jesus Christ is condemning rich people to hell in the Bible. I guess this person was referring to two significant portions in the Bible where Jesus addressed this issue;

  1. Mark 10:25, ‘It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

What Illegal migrants that cross the Mediterranean should know

Image by economist.com

Immigrants are innumerable; some are legal while others are illegal. The purpose of this post is to alert the illegal immigrants of God’s position on their act. There are many reasons why people decide to move from one country to the other. These reasons could justify the move in earthly terms but if it is illegal, God will never tolerate such a decision.

Which one is easier – Following Jesus or the devil?

The Holy Name of Jesus...All living people following either Jesus or the devil, there is no other option. This implies that eithists, people that believe in God but choose not to follow Christ and all other religions are the devil’s craftsmanship to deceive people to believe they are not following him. This includes neither do they follow any other religion. These religions make people think that they have other options to access God’s favour other than through Jesus Christ (John 14:6).

I am a Christian Bible reader and want to unveil the reality of following Christ as recorded in the Bible. I will also unveil that which the Bible says about following other gods, which practically implies following the devil.

Speculating Mariah Carey’s thoughts on Luther Vandross’ partnership on ‘Endless love’

mariah and luther

Maria Carey and Luther Vandross were once popular by the song ‘Endless love’. I’m certain the song has been sung by a number of artists and these two nail it with their sweet voices also. The song is nice, lyrics rhyme so well and its been a heat song for a very long time.

A thought on those that died 24 hours ago and those to die 24 hours on

It has been confirmed that death is a continuous occurrence. Countless numbers cross over to the other side of life each day and no man nor anyone can stop it. The World Death Clock Website gives an idea. Its a given, people will continue to die and the big question is, ‘What happens on the other side of life?’ The Bible also asks this question in the book of Job 27:8, ‘what is the hope of a hypocrite, though he may gain much, If God takes away his life?’ We cannot ignore thinking about death as we know that one day we all shall die (Ecclesiastes 9:5).

I’m reminded of people of great popularity that died during my time. These include politicians, celebrities, church leaders, entrepreneurs, doctors, and people from every other profession you can think of. A quick thought bring to mind Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, Whithey Houston, Brenda Fassie, Vuyo Mokoena, Miles Monroe, and recently Andrea Crouch. You know many others too. They all responded to the call of death. I lost both my parents and a brother also. I would have post their photos freely here but you would not know who they are. I will die too. I’m not being insensitive but am telling the truth which will not change even if I don’t post on this issue.
