The bible says that there are witnesses in heaven who cheer us on as we run this race called life (Hebrews). Then there is another scripture (that scares me) which says even the demons know our reputation on earth as good or bad (James). Then there is the book of Job where God asked Satan where he was and he said roaming throughout the earth. Both satan and God had a conversation about Job (Which shows me that both God and Satan knows us by name and our reputation.
Anyway, if you die by fighting a terminal disease I would think the other side must cheer you one when you meet them at death, or if you died fighting for the rights of others. You would have a reputation of Hero on the other side. I also imagined someone on the mission to Mars uncovering great info and there be a resume of sorts if they died. "Wow I always wanted to meet you the first to die in space". Just as many of us would meet the oldest in death and have respect in wanting to shake the hands of a person who....The process of dying must be difficult as well as others who have died before will say "You made it", no easy task, when we finally pass from this world to the next.
Of course I encourage everyone to enjoy their lives but I was just wondering what your thoughts are on death. This is actually therapeutic for me as I dread the topic but have matured to write a thread on it. (Progress for me). So what do you think?
It's not our manner of death that concerns those on the other side, but our manner of life. There are those on the other side who weep at the challenges we go through, over the guilt we sometimes heap on ourselves. They take our affairs very seriously. These same people weep for joy at our accomplishments as though watching their hero win the game.
These people who are so concerned about us are our mothers and fathers, grandmothers and grandfathers, great grandfathers, and close friends, going back many generations. They are all of our earthly relatives, and are very concerned about us, and for good reason!
It is true what you say about God, Lucifer and many others having intimate knowledge about us. We all share a past that covers many, many thousands of years, a past they haven't forgotten, as we have. But not too long after we die this past starts comming back to us, and eventually we remember everything. It starts comming back in stages after we pass into the spirit world. We immediately know we're home, and a million things come to mind which we never knew in life, which afterwards feels as though we've always known but somehow forgotten for a time. This is all quite intentional.
The joyful reunion that awaits us, no matter how poorly our life may have turned out, is utterly Indescribable.
