The Death question

Is there really no solution to Death?

As I returned from work last week, I saw a bill board advertising ” Juju” and it read “Everything has a solution except death”.

So now, the question is ” Does death have no solution?”

Before I attempt to answer this question, for this post, it is important to understand two things:

  1. Death is not a cessation but a separation.
  2. There are two types of death: the first death, and the second death.

Of course natural science tells us that Death is the cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism. However, the creator tell us otherwise.

Wait wait! I promise you that this is not science fiction, just stay with me.

So, man has a spirit, a soul and a body. Therefore, when people have out of body experiences, they usually see themselves leave their bodies. Usually, they have their memories intact. So, we (our spirits) basically leave our bodies with our souls.

Death is therefore the separation of a spirit from a body. You will not cease to exist when you die. You will leave your body and return to the creator with results (good or bad) from your time on earth. This is the temporary death.

The temporary separation can however become permanent if there was no relationship with the Creator on earth. This is because, while on this planet, a spirit without a relationship with God made a choice, therefore after death God will respect this very same choice and the person will have to spend eternity without the creator.

Now, the first death has no solution except that there is no sting (1 Corinthians 15:55) to it for people who have a relationship with the creator. The reason is that, the spirit knows that he/she is going back to the creator who has been Friend and Father. However, for a person without a relationship, the sting remains because of the fear of the unknown.

Basically, the first death will visit us all. It might be 5 minutes from when you read this post, a week from now, ten years from now or in 50 years’ time. Just be aware that the first death will come.

Now the second death on the other hand doesn’t have to be experienced. It is determined by your choice here on earth.

“Favour what choice”?

The choice to have a relationship with the Creator!

So how does a person meet this creator yeah?

THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.

The only way to the creator is through His son Jesus Christ. This is not science fiction. I bet you know this truth deep down.

“The moment Adam sinned he became separated from God and united with the devil. Man became an outcast, driven from the Garden of Eden with no legal ground of approach to God. He no longer responds to the call of God but to his new nature and his new master. Man is more than a lawbreaker and a sinner. He is spiritually a child of the devil and partakes of his father’s nature”- Kenneth Hagin .

Jesus is the way to secure your future. You can never cease to exist. You will exist for eternity! You need to make the wise choice.

Some thoughts from the Creator include:

And just as it is appointed for people to die once—and after this, judgment— 28 so also the Messiah, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but[a] to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.– Hebrews 9:27-28

 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in Me, even if he dies, will live. John 11:5

For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life : John 3:16

Jesus loves you so much and He is waiting for you to choose Him so that you can live forever with Him. Be wise.

You are loved,
