What if I’m right? Where does that leave you? Please hear my heart when I say… I hope it is you that is right, because whether or not it is you or I with the correct answer, my destination is the same. My concern is for you… Where does that leave you, if I am right and you are wrong?
If you are right…
I will see whatever I think I’m going to see. I can prescribe, write, and design my own Heaven, my own legacy, my mansion with many rooms to rest or do whatever I want in. If I work hard and I’m kind and generous, I will have earned my boarding pass.
It will be you and me who decides who gets in or who stays out. No unwelcomed guests or bad blood allowed!
And surely you jest… that there will be SupernaturalBowls, The Heaven Series, Halo Tournaments, The Chariot7000… Not to forget, CrownJewel Stores, Paradise Malls, Angel Inns with 4thStar Buffets, Cloud Spas, and perpetual fountains of water turning to wine [or fermented something], springing forth on every corner.
If you are right…
Maybe you’re the one who believes you will slip off into never-ending sleep or that you will see nothing, merely cease to exist? I ask you… can you control your dreams, your sleep, your unconscious existence? Will you awaken, when you find yourself in nightmares and the darkness overpowers you? Will night tremors and sweats be felt on any scale? And if you awake from these… where does that leave you?
But if I am right…
When I die, become absent to this world, I know I will be living and present with my soul’s heart desire… God, in Heaven. Paradise is everywhere Jesus is, as I sit positioned at His feet… One in the Spirit. I will never be alone… I know that I will be surrounded by others, my loved ones who have gone before me and will soon come, and there will be… Family Reunion. We, as a cloud of witnesses, will give testimony of our inheritance. I know that there will be no more sorrow, pain, and darkness that the world had served to offer. The restriction and bondage of the flesh, will no longer clip my spiritual wings. My chains gone… I’ve been set FREE.
If you ask me… “How does one get to this FREE, expense paid journey to Paradise?” I will tell you plainly… There are many ways we find ourselves, finding Jesus. But, there is only One Way, One Truth, One Life… to The Father in Heaven → You will know Him as Savior and Lord… JESUS!
In the conclusion…
If you are right and I am wrong, even by your vision and standard… Me & my crazy dreams will reside with ‘my God’ in a place called “Paradise” [Heaven]. I will spend eternity at the feet of the greatest Humanitarian, Teacher, Healer, Counselor, and demonstrator of sacrificial Love the world has ever known. And furthermore, I will see and be with my like-minded and spirited loved ones in family reunion. I will experience no more suffering, pain, or darkness… but rather Freedom, Healing, and Light.
I pray I have your ‘religion’ all wrong. And, I hope for your sake, that you are found right.
BUT… What if
I’m right and you are wrong? Where does that leave you?
