Death is holding the puppet as bait, trying to sugar-coat the eternal torment that waits for those who will latch on and swallow it. How many people latch onto this puppet and let the hook sink in through their cheek? How many people are anxiously striving to be one of these rich and famous puppets? So many people think that a thick blanket of money will keep them warm and comfortable forever. People don’t think about who is pulling the leash that is collared around their soul. They don’t think about it until this short life comes to an end and they are pulled over the edge.
Woe to you who are rich, for you are receiving your comfort in full. (Luke 6:24)
If you could see the never-ending picture of eternity, you would never trade it for momentary comfort in this microscopic span of time on earth. This short time on earth is for you to decide your eternal destiny. There is a place of torment for those who have already received their comfort in full, and there is a place of comfort for those who have suffered to do what is right.
And he cried out and said, “Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame.” But Abraham said, “Child, remember that during your life you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things; but now he is being comforted here, and you are in agony.” (Luke 16:24-25)
Does it matter whether you are “Forever 27” if you are forever in torment? Is all the fame and money going to put out the fire that keeps you in agony? Are these puppets pulling you over the edge? Are torment and agony the ones that wait for you to take your last breath?
God desires all men to be saved. He has given every man the guiding light of his conscience to do what is right. He did not create people to live their individual lives for individual, selfish purposes. He wants to gather a people together, who will share everything they have in common. He desires one body of people who are one in heart and mind.
And the congregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and not one of them claimed that anything belonging to him was his own, but all things were common property to them. (Acts 4:32)
To enter into a new life, you have to leave your old life behind. The Kingdom of God is worth everything.
So then, none of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own possessions. (Luke 14:33)
Yahshua gave up His life for you so you could give up your life for Him and His people. This is the love that God has poured out in our hearts. This is the love that will last forever. Come and experience this new life that God has prepared for you.
