…but.

I’m at the Life Review.  (You’ll get your chance.)  In mere MOMENTS, every single act, and thought I EVER did and had was all around me, as if happening for the first time!  And yet, the entire thing happened so FAST, it was over before my brain could register it.  But I remembered it all!

As if that wasn’t strange enough, I saw things as if I was on the receiving end of things I had said and done.  To me it seemed like the effects were amplified somewhat.  It’s that or…some of the things I had said…cut to the bone?  Or were those “recipients” just (too) “sensative”?  …No, that was not the answer.

I would come to a place, in this…thought stealing review, that I would feel I needed to…defend my actions.  Over and over I would begin by saying, “yeah, but”…and that would be the end of the moment, moving on to the next.  After this had occured several times, I realized that my “yeah, but” “explanation” carried no weight.  It wasn’t that it was a “lie”, more like…you should have known better, AND WOULD HAVE, if truly coming from a place of love!

There it is…the “afterlife’s” standards for admission, and now you know, when your turn comes, that “but.” is always the end of the sentence.

Do I HAVE TO Do Good, Too?

Please remember, this series contains reports of the experiences of a person who has had a so-called “near death experience”.   Many, many of the things “seen/discovered” during that time go against even his own beliefs!  These are simply the reports (“to the whole world”) that were  promised (to Someone you don’t lie to)!!  Bear with me….

Many folks believe that “by Grace Ye are Saved, not by Works” means that Grace is all that’s required in order to receive  “the good” afterlife.  A person could have done any ole thing they want to, for a lifetime, as long as they BELIEVE.  Then again, out of the other side of their mouths they speak of a “Judgment Day”…..?  You know, JUDGMENT DAY!  It’s where your GOODNESS is counted up….to see if you qualify for the Good Treatment.  Then there’s this, “Faith without works is dead”.  Which one is true?

What does the “near” death experience tell us?

That “life review” experienced during the…death and return….was DEADLY SERIOUS.  Every lie was the biggest lie ever told!  Every deceit WAS a lie.  Every…taking advantage…was taking advantage against YOURSELF.  Naturally it is!  We are all “one”.  Don’t ask for an explanation…..there are no words….BIG enough!  But it’s true, from my understanding.  As for “by Grace”…..this is hard to put into words…words alone leave so many misunderstandings in their wake.

When suddenly in “the waiting place”, it was obvious that this condition COULD go on for EVER….since you’re apart from time.  Just as the fear was about to take over, the realization came that all one needs do is call The Saviors name, and believe the offer of salvation, as fact.

Putting these two experiences together…..as “evidence”…..

Knowing that every lie is the biggest lie ever told, and every hurting thing comes back to hurt YOU (magnified) are enough reasons to begin giving up those things completely.  Then comes peace…NOT necessarily an easy life, but peace, nevertheless.

If a person believes, they want to understand.  When that person UNDERSTANDS, they will WANT TO do good (to/for/with others).  If NOT……… Well, if they don’t measure up, they won’t get in.  Remember, it isn’t…bliss/”heaven” …if the riff-raff gets in.

(You don’t do good for “brownie points”.  Those acts likely don’t even count!  Maybe…..in secret is best…..)

What, Again, is Life About?

A lot of folks seem to think, as I once did, that life is a test.  That may be the wrong way to look at it.

Opportunity, that is what life is.  OK, it’s an opportunity….for what?  Is it just an opportunity for God to get all bug-eyed, watching us flounder, counting each transgression (like Scrooge would count his pence), waiting for the day of the big filet?  Eh?

Who’s heard of, “you can’t earn your way to Heaven”, you?  It’s because there’s…”purchasing” involved, where “a savings account”  is a more appropriate description…..less entitlement, more…seeking….and “saving”….. all things good, and proper, with Love…and, therefore, the approval of the powers that be, besides a just reward.  We need to be good/do good because we want to, not because it “pays”.  That kind of “pay” does not convert to Heavens currency!

Remember the story, something about, burning off the chaff from a harvest….  I’m guessing that is more than a fair description.  God hates sin, right?  Then why would He want to look at it?!  Burn it off, look at what’s left.  For some folks, that doesn’t leave much.  It would not be cool for God to ask for his magnifying glass, to see what’s left over from the burn, when looking me over, I know that much.

For some, God will look at the pile…it’s so big….and bright (because of the blazing light, coming from Him, reflecting off the “gold” (“savings”) pile).  Yes, that is what I want…..  A big smile on the face of the Almighty.

The Truth about Lies…….Huh?

We all know about lies.  Lies are untruths that make you look like an idiot, when they’re discovered.  After that, it’s likely fewer people want to talk to you….what’s the point, what you’re saying is probably a lie!

There are many, situations where a  strategically placed lie…just makes life easier. They aren’t usually malicious.  Usually it’s just a little white lie that “saves” the day/moment.

Having had a death experience, this is what I have to report to you.  It’s a report of what I saw, and was told (about lies, in this case), not MY, personal mandate to civilized life all over the universe…..

Here it is…A HUGE lie is an abomination to God, and everyone that loves His ways.  Who’ll give me an “AMEN”!  A little lie is, then, of course…….an abomination to God, and everyone that loves His ways!!  Big lie, little lie, they are EXACTLY the same.

Liars are looking to buy an eternity of being lied to, it appears.  It’s a shame.  The thing is, was it really necessary to lie, every one of those times?  Now, think about this, then answer…..from what I’ve seen, once you are finished  living, and have “gone on”, life seems to have been very, very short…maybe just moments.  It has been suggested that, in a place that has NO TIME, life resembles ten minutes.

So the question becomes, do you think you could go 10 minutes without lying, in order to be acceptable in Heaven?  The alternative may be, being spit out like a mouthful of sewage, thrown out, into……….

I’ll Kill Myself and Go Somewhere Better…Says Who?

What makes people think they can kill themselves, and go somewhere better?!?  Do they think there is never an undesirable outcome after death?  What about “ghosts”?  Presumably they (ghosts) are trapped here.  This isn’t to say that there are ghosts, but it wouldn’t surprise me.  The point is, if they believe in the existence of something resembling “hell”, or in trapped spirits,  or some such, they’d better think again before thinking suicide!  It gets worse….yeah, worse.

The answer to the suicide/Heaven formula?  Zero.  That’s the chance of having a good outcome from suicide.  I am sorry.  The Kid with a thousand questions expected a different answer!

You know….life is tough!  It seems like God would have pity on people who….just can’t make life “work”.  You know, the whole God/forgiveness thing.  That simply wasn’t the case.

THIS is the answer to the question of suicide…..Just for the record, I don’t feel it’s fair….apparently suicide is unforgivable, according to what I’ve seen {I mean, the Kid has seen).  Why?  Because, you’ve chosen to tell God, “to hell with your plan for my life, I’m doing what I think is best!”.

You don’t see people who have had a so-called “near death experience” committing suicide.  These people have seen death….and bliss….who WOULDN’T want to go back ASAP?  But they don’t, do they?

So VERY many good things come from people who have borne the unbearable…maybe it’s almost “required” in order to do the BEST things(?).

That’s it.  Like all answers from/about God….simple.

The End Is ALWAYS Near

You know how sometimes, time flies?  Other times it seems to barely move.  Time flies?  How about vacation time. Time crawls?  How about…standing in a long, slow line at the market, when you are in a hurry.

My (95 year old) grandma said, when asked which decade went the fastest, “I went to bed 49 (years old), and woke up 60”.  This being the case…who cares what others think/say? It will be over in ten minutes!

OK. ….How to explain “time” as it exists in a place with NO time…….?

Every minute in heaven is kinda’ like, say, a decade on earth.  Looking at it this way, if we’re LUCKY, we’ll “live” for 10 minutes (Heaven “time”)!  So, that leaves us with THE question, could you “be good” for ten minutes?  Truth be told, only HAVING ten minutes to live, I’d be trying to get as much “helping” done as I possibly could.

That is EXACTLY how it will feel, once we’re in the great beyond!  Just like in old age, where years, and even decades, seem to have flown by, once they’re over.  “Life” is just a blip on the screen of eternity.  Think about that….it changes EVERYTHING. For instance…why worry?  In “ten minutes” it (life’s worries) will be over!

Say…a loved one has died.  They’re missed so very much…yeah, for “ten minutes”, until you are there as well!  You want to relieve life’s stress?  It too will be…forgotten…in “ten minutes” (Heaven “time”).  So don’t worry about it….see how easy it was for me to say that?  I can say it, I just have trouble doing it!

One more thing…once you’ve “gone on”, and you know that your whole life was just a blip in time, you’ll realize… THE END is ALWAYS near!

How can there ever be lasting peace?

Where there is love and true justice, peace comes easy.

Think about the person you love the most in the whole world (maybe that is yourself). THAT is love, and everyone should be treated as if they ARE that favorite person. Does that seem not enough? Then treat everyone as if they are God.

As far as justice is concerned….good luck getting THAT in life!  But after life, justice is absolute…AB-SO-fricking-LUTE!!  It’s, also, PERFECT.  Explain perfect?  Whatever a person does to another person, they may as well be doing it to themselves!  The rolls are reversed, where there is perfect justice.  Example?  I scream at you, “You are so stupid, and I can prove it!”  Well, I just signed up to be screamed at, probably for eternity, and, all the while, during that time, realizing just exactly how stupid I truly was to have gotten myself here/there, by treating someone else so lousy!!  Perfect Justice.

So……you want peace, treat “yourself” (everyone!) well!

Is Death the End?

This one is in the top 10 unanswerable questions asked. Let me put it this way….while I was “away” from life, going through these events that are associated with death, I tried to remember what I was doing LAST.  How did I get here/there?  I had to STRAIN to remember.  Life was now such a…non-factor…like a boring story you heard LONG ago.  I could have burned to death, or worse (?), and couldn’t care less!  I know it, I am DEAD….but I still exist!

NO. Death is not the end, from what I have seen.

Uh oh, this changes….everything. How do I act?  How do I treat strangers?  Do I hoard gold, or use it (up) for good?  (Every action will be exactly like in “Schindlers List”, where Oscar Schindler looks at his ring, and wonders how many lives it could have bought. No big deal….just words?  For impact, let’s say those lives not bought were you and your family.)

God Pulls the Weeds

#5 of 5
After “life”, all communication is mind to mind, and at a speed that we, trapped here in time, couldn’t even IMAGINE keeping up with. Understanding exactly what was MEANT by what was said was also….refreshing!  Language itself is so VERY inadequate!  Just about everything said, by most people, can be misunderstood!  Considering that there are also hundreds of languages, it’s rather amazing that things like international agreements EVER succeed!

This kid, looking for answers to all the tough questions, after seeing Heaven, was so very happy to finally know the truth of everything, that the promises started to flow!  How about turning charity on its’ head and give 90%, and live on 10%?!  Life is only a few moments of work. It’ll be easy………..?  You already know about the kid promising to tell every living soul about this experience.  And, this was before the internet, so impossible.  Hmmmm…..

Imagine you are…”God”. You need to weed out “the wicked”. All the souls that will ever live could be called together and told, “OK, I want all those among you, who love others as much as you love yourself, and love justice and peace, to move to the front, into the light, here in front of me. The rest of you, get out of my sight. On your way out, you WILL sign up for your much deserved eternal punishments.” No, that wouldn’t work, everyone would claim to be saintly. No one would leave.

What would be “the perfect proof”?  How about, as God, you reach into the brain of every individual and make them experience thousands of opportunities to prove their love of love. We’ll call it…… “life”.  It’s broken up into tiny little sections, so as to allow each participant plenty of chance to arrive at their “final answer”. These sections we’ll call “time”.

Once it’s all over, it is clear that only a moment has passed, and anything that may have happened during that moment  is just a memory. In addition, that opportunity will, presumably, never again be available.
