Jesus who is God in the Father and the Holy Spirit said in John 11:1-44
“Whoever lives and believes in me, will never die. Do you believe this?"
Our one and only connection to God is at first, our faith – our believe.
This connection then grows, the deeper our believe is, into a binding, a tearproof tie down onto God.
Not only Saints live that experience. There are Millions who undergo this epiphany day after day and still they pray LET ME LIVE IN YOU AND WITH YOU.
And it grows, and they will not die, but go on living right after leaving their body and see God and live together with God and finally now in this affiliation start to live in a higher, unearthly quality, unknown here.
Do you believe this?
There are extremely many things in that relatively small book called “New Testament”, many of us would know more about. The Church is very helpful in this case, as she is authorised by the founder of the Church – Jesus Christ, to teach us, whatever we want to know.
But also we are asked to pass on to our next, what we achieved and where given by God’s grace.
And we never should hesitate to ask if what so ever seems not quite as clear to us.
I for instance keep asking every week when I’m unsure; either friends who are deeper in believe than I, or theologians and priests.
Let’s do so here too, and in all situations of our life, so we meet even more people who lived in God here, again in heaven then, when we enter Gods kingdom.
