What I believe is that when we die, our spirit goes to heaven. We do not reunite with our bodies (heavenly) until Jesus Christ comes back to earth. That is when the dead will rise (just as Jesus did) and our bodies will be renewed. We will have an eternal body... that is those who have willingly accepted Christ as his/her Savior.
As far as what you are saying HM... I'm not sure. I really have no clue. I have heard of things like this happening before... and I'm not saying one way or another. I trust you that it happened without explanation. I just don't know. God has the power to to anything- no matter what it is. I do know that God knew it was going to happen. He knows all that will happen. That's what's hard for me to wrap my head around, is the fact that He knows what will happen in the future, yet He allows ALL human beings free-will. He allows us to make our own decisions. That's why He wants US to choose HIM. If we live our lives without Him in it, then He does not "know" us and we do not know Him.
I sincerely believe, also, that God has a sense of humor. I think he wants us to laugh and have fun on earth- all while telling others about Him. I also think God may use His humor at times on us,,, NOT to tease us or provoke us, but just to show us, "SEE I AM IN CHARGE"... haha! I have had that happen alot in my life. Sometimes when I think I have it all figured out, my "plan" about something will fall apart and I'll just sit back and smile because I know, God is saying "Should've asked Me first!" :) On top of everything, He is a loving God. That is His most admirable trait. He loves EVERYONE. That is what's hard to get across to people is that God loves you no matter how bad you are or what you have done. He DOES NOT love anyone more than someone else. He loves ME, TATOR just the same as a serial killer sitting on death row. The other thing is that God does not rank sin. Sin is sin in His eyes. If you remember, there are 10 commandments,,, they are NOT in order- that's for a reason. God views all sin as sin, and that's it. I know that's hard to believe- especially for our society right now because many of us (including me at times) start thinking, "well I'm no murderer" or "I'm a good guy and I help others out". That all is great, but we are all sinners. NO one is perfect, only Jesus Christ.
Sorry to go off subject so far--- I just see our society going so far away from God that is hurts. Absolutely kills me to see our kids grow up with one parent- or with two moms or two dads. That's not God's plan, in my eyes. I realize this is not everyone's opinion, but I stand for what I believe in and I will raise my children in a home that supports them and loves them but also teaches them God's word correctly....
I'll end with this.. if anyone needs to talk about God or Jesus or just about things in their life.. my door is always open. My personal email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Feel free to email me and I will do my best to explain what I believe, I'll share my testimony with you or just listen to what you think or have to say. I believe I'm a good listener and I hope to help someone out. My love for the Lord grows everyday,,, I'm not perfect and I don't try to be. My goal is to live my life for Christ and to raise my family in a Christ-loving home.
