Meeting God in the next body once this one dies will be traumatic beyond comprehension. The holy heat of love ripping through in the unstoppable destruction of all but that which is new and alive in us. Gifted eternal life, depending on Christ inside thereby renewing, we're able to stand. We're not living on but die again, if we haven't got an eternal 'life'.
All depending on our response, the question is; how and when this is set and unchangeable? Extending wider than often-assumed Evangelical proclamations -- but how far? Not easy to assess. Indications suggest, somehow transforms beyond those confident in knowing a repentance and receiving. Living with Christ-in, around about and active. While this cannot be bypassed, it's about what goes on and people, less or unaware, were seeking and found. Able to receive -- better said. The only other alternative is in crossing over in an embrace makes good. In the light, an open up and saved.
Can only hope for those without assurance, or even any sense of this awareness here and now. A universalist interpreting, God reconciling the world... belief, holds all go on. The opposite view maintains -- at least from the front -- only 'my understanding of Christian' gets in.
There's somewhere between -- no reason to try and describe where. Leaves consternation. Where my Biblical-weighing is at. Adding the necessary 'traditions and reason' sifts and selects, something like a position.
The attitude out of this is what matters, considering 97% -- if that and not more? -- and the UK, are not bang-up for and into God in Christ. Shouldn't surprise anyone half-sound and not cop'd out in a theology of fate. Or, lacking perspective and perceived distant, weird or wonky Church going doesn't pull.
This most reliable way-into God is languishing. Few gatherings have the Word and Spirit combined and tested in a way that works the wonders. Always something -- from my perspective -- to trip up. Blocks to stumble...
All we need in these lands is a revival. All means 'all'. The last and should be first hope we don't let the boot stomp hard and deep. The supposed-nation will quake and shake-off many of the engrossing visions of normality. The window. Where my prophetic sense -- and common sense -- remains. Little, more like -- no, movement in the salvation army. Like the singing/sometimes. The rare talk but not something to recommend outsiders. Christians are OK but the azleeepy mode or stuffed up on theology not open or convicting is tough and hard to take.
The worst thing about (had) a ragged life in Christ is the overhanging challenges to grace. Plays havoc with the most essential responsibility; praying or standing -- in faith. The world, made by faith, is how God loves and wants to move. The whole in one: See, I will send a messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Preperation by our believing and declaring cries. Confessions, in and by, the power of God.
GOT to batter the doubts with Word and a song. Be done with the drivel and a history always needing forgetting.
Gotta go. Could go on. But time. It's not for second-besting aka sin. Do what/when/must/ought/can/should -- NOW.
