Death’s separation is temporary

Share

By Nicholas Damascus

God in his infinite love for us often allows us to be temporarily separated even in death. His purpose and intention one can only guess; however, it most likely may be, — as harsh as it may seem — for the benefit of all those involved.  In Christ, there is no death for he came to save us by trampling down death by his death that we may live with him eternally.

For the bereaved, weep, but do not despair, whatever you were previously to each other, you still are now.  It was said those who have passed have only entered another room and they always will be nearby, a prayer away, and forever close to all of you.  For the time being the door is closed, but in God’s time, that door will be opened again.

There is no finality in this existence, and you shall all meet again.  Once your initial grieving has subsided, you will realize that your future meeting will be greeted with unimaginable joy, and no event will take that joy from you ever again.  Not now, but on that day to come.

From Luke 6: 21 “Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.”  This is a promise that is given to all of us and to look forward too.

May God continue to bless and embrace all who are suffering and grieving, as I pray that you all continue in your journey to not only love one another but to become love to one another.

About Nicholas Damascus

Nick Damascus is one who seeks to discover and apply the proverbial question of what is truth and wisdom, to fill that gaping hole, to become complete and to become realistically and synergistically functional. In an attempt to live the Christian life, which he says is a definite work in progress, he has discovered that he's created the Christ that fits his lifestyle and agrees with his ego (and boy what an ego, he says), carefully avoiding what God intended him to be.
