Death Has No Sting for a True Christian
It has been five days of living life to the fullest during life’s changing circumstances. My mother in-law of thirty-one years passed through the gates of Heaven last Friday around 1:00 p.m. and her empty body was buried yesterday around 4 p.m.
She had been suffering for eight years with Alzheimer’s and her family and many others have been praying for eight years for our Heavenly Father to end her suffering any way He chooses. We know all things are possible through His power and grace, when and where we do not know, but we never give up!
Her devoted husband took care of her every day for those eight years while some family members worked hard and visited them, some could visit more than others, and some could not visit at all due to their own circumstances, but they all prayed. Please pray for her husband he will be the one who must adapt into his new life the most. Eight years of caring for her in their home until she passed through the gates of Heaven is many days on earth to take care of a loved one. It will be an adjustment for Him, but those who truly know our Heavenly Father know they can do all things through Him who gives them strength.
For some of the family members our last prayer together before she passed through the gates of Heaven was Friday morning at sun up. After most of us slept in chairs or on the hard floor waiting for her soul and spirit to be taken up by the angles of light and other heavenly human spirits that have gone before her.
A few minutes after our prayer a few of us went outside to welcome the new day and up above the house in the blue sky was a double rainbow. No rain clouds in sight, nor had it rained the night before. There above was only the sun shining on this double rainbow over the house we were in, telling us through its brilliance to remain faithful, patient, and to remind us He is in control and He hears. A rainbow is one of His signs to let us know He keeps His promises. When and where they unfold we do not know.
By the early afternoon her soul and spirit were taken by the angles of light out of the gates from this earth into the gates of Heaven to meet our Lord and Father in person and face to face! She is also meeting with all the spirits of the singing angles and those other Holy Spirit touched human spirits that had gone before her. She is seeing a place so beautiful she could never understand in her human body. Heaven is too bright and beautiful for our human eyes and body to withstand and understand.
She is completely healed, and all her suffering is no more, she has no worries, sorrows, or struggling concerns. She will never have any tears of sadness from suffering ever again for eternity. From her passing to everlasting all her suffering is gone! There is no end of time where she is! Where she is by far is greater than anyone or anything on this earth! Let us rejoice in thinking of her and what she has gained and not ourselves and what we are missing. We can always ask Him for help in turning our grief to joy, and He will always help us and give us all we need to overcome any heartbreak! He never will leave us or forsake us; let us not leave or forsake Him.
Thank you, Father, for always showing us your Heavenly miracles, signs, and wonders we cannot explain, and thank you for giving us the mind, eyes and heart to see them through your indwelling Spirit your word proclaims!
