"You're floating up to Tele this evening," my Supervisor stated. "But, I can't read the monitors yet!" I replied with some anxiety. I was a L.P.N. going to R.N. school, and this was my first day... Read More

    "Some day we will each know the truth. But for now, the majority want to support the belief in an afterlife. "

    There's certainly no argument that it makes one take pause, doesn't it? After Jesus arose from the dead, over 3,000 people saw him ascend back to Heaven. It wasn't a "belief". It is fact.

    But that aside, I guess for me, and others, we remember that we are made in His image. That means that in addition to our body, we have a longing to find something wonderful that can bring our spirit peace. In short, our soul wants to touch God. That is why many of us fall into awful situations that can hurt us, drugs, alcohol, unhealthy companionship, danger.

    That isn't what He wanted for us. Those were choices we made. But the good news is that there is nothing you have done or said, that God cannot forgive. Why else would Jesus have gone to the cross to pay for our sins, to save us from Hell? But only if we accept Him.

    I was very rebellious as a young adult, I was angry and hurt and damaged. If it wasn't for Jesus and His grace and discipline, I would be dead and dead without hope.

    The only thing that stopped me from killing myself all those years ago, was the fear of going to Hell. (I wasn't sure about it.) And we were speaking of eternity.

    Satan fought for my soul and he still tries to attack on occasion but I know in Whom I have believed. I just draw my sword (the word of God) and stand. Sometimes that is all you can do....stand.
    I wish some of Jesus' appearances after rising from the dead would have been recorded in Scripture (besides the ones where he appeared to His disciples).

    They were:

    Matt Mark Luke John (Books)

    to Mary Mag. 28:1 16:9 24:10 20:18

    Angel to the women
    28:5 16:8

    Sorry. I tried to line these references up but when they post they slip out of order for some reason.


    To the Emmaus Travelers
