we believe that we shall also live with him: knowing that Christ
being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no dominion over him.”
When we ask Jesus into our hearts, we renounce sin; The Apostle Paul says we die to sin. We die with Jesus; therefore, we will be permitted to live with Him.
Jesus lives forever in heaven. He will not go through the devastation of death again. Death has no power over our LORD. We, who believe in him, should not fear death because we will live with Jesus for eternity.
As we read scriptures, we learn that Jesus lives forever in God’s Kingdom, (heaven.) We discover that He has places for us to live (mansions, or rooms) when we arrive there. I once had a dream of my husband and I and a friend were looking at a house that had huge windows with lace curtains that allowed a bright light to shine through. I told my friend about my dream. She asked me if Hubby and I were considering moving or looking at houses. No we weren’t. I have my thoughts on this dream.
A dear friend once turned to me in church and said, “I hope when I get to heaven, that you will live next door to me.” This was a few years ago. I choked back a tear then and every time I think about it. It was the highest compliment I have ever received. My response was, “Well, maybe across the street or across the alley, or down the street, any of these locations would be wonderful.”
When we get to be with Jesus, it will all be good.
