Whenever a man dies, people will say he’s gone home to rest. Whenever a Christian dies, people will say he’s gone to Heaven. In some cultures, they’ll celebrate the dead as if tomorrow will never come. The kind of money they’ve never spent when he was alive, they’ll spend it whenever he dies. Some will go to the extent of borrowing money to do the burial. In Europe now, they’re advising everyone to plan for his funeral before he dies. But if you plan for all these, have you planned for where you’re going? I Am the Almighty God. My Law is One and will never change. Death is the end of the living.
Those in Africa know how to worship the dead. They’ll buy the most expensive casket to bury their dead. They’ll celebrate him for several days, eating and drinking. The same person they’re celebrating is looking at them, full of sorrow. You don’t know where he’s gone to, either Heaven or Hellfire, yet, you’re celebrating. Many people die every day, but only a few come to Me because none of you meets the criteria to come to Me.
Who is the Owner of life? Am I not the One? I created life; I give life, and I take it. The life all of you live belongs to Me. Yes, you’re alive, but the life you’re living doesn’t belong to you; it belongs to Me. If I give you something to keep, you must also remember that one day, I’ll request it. I will request your life back from you. When I request it, will you give it back to Me the way I gave it to you? Will you give it back to Me pure as I gave it to you?
Many of you are serving Me, worshipping Me with your mouth, yet, your heart is far from Me, even My own servants. Am I a partial God? What is good for John is also good for Peter. I gave gifts to all of you in different measures as I wanted. If I give more to you, I also request more from you. If I gave Peter a hundred, I’ll request a hundred from him plus the profit. I Am God! I Am the Owner of every life. Whatever I gave to you, I want it back even more than the way I gave it to you.
The whole world may hail you whenever they see you. They may celebrate you while you’re alive and also celebrate you when you’re dead. All is good! Will Heaven celebrate you? Won’t Hellfire rejoice at your coming? Will Heaven rejoice or be sorrowful because of you? If a hero dies here, Heaven rejoices at his coming only if He lived My life. But if he lived his own life, Heaven would be sorrowful because of him, while Hellfire would rejoice.
Many of your relatives died as Christians; if you know where they are, you’ll pity your own life. But these were the same people you celebrated when they died. I Am the Almighty God. I Am not interested in fame or name. I Am only interested in holiness because only holiness will bring you to Me. All of you can shout, sing, and rejoice whenever your relative dies; that’s your own cup of tea. But I Am the One who has the final say. I Am not a partial Father. I will give to each one of you according to the work of your hands.
Whatever has a beginning also has an ending. No matter how good life may treat you, there’ll be an end to it. No man came to this Earth on his own accord except at the command of the Father. When a child was born, the whole family rejoiced over him. When the child grew old and died, his family were sorrowful because he’d left them alone. But the most painful part of it all, as Christians, where will you go?
Nobody hasn’t got a home. Even the homeless on the street weren’t born on the street. Somebody gave birth to him. Whether you have a home or are homeless, you must die one day. But when you die, the kind of life you lived here will determine the kind of home you’ll go to. As Christians, we only have two choices that we can call home, Heaven or Hellfire. Some of you may wonder why I mention Hellfire. Hellfire is home too. People live there, though in torment. But the category of those who go to Heaven is not common. Only those who fulfil the Commandments of the Father in their lifetime will go there.
The Bible says in the Book of Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed to men once to die, but after this the judgement.” Judgement is awaiting every soul after this Earth. Pure we came, dirty we shall return because sin has dominated the lives of men. If we return in dirtiness, Hellfire will be our abode. But the few who know their God as God, who recognise the death of their Saviour will live their lives with pure and unblemished hearts. These are the ones who will leave the Earth pure and ascend to their God and Father for eternal rest. May the Lord give you the grace to walk with Him in Jesus' name.
