God created us in His image. However through the Fall we were cut off from His Kingdom. Now there is a kingdom of darkness and a Kingdom of God. The kingdom of darkness is ruled by Satan, the fallen angel who rebelled against God. He now seeks to take all his followers to hell with him which is his destiny. Those who are not in the Kingdom of God are in the kingdom of darkness. This darkness is like a curtain that separates the two kingdoms. “Once I was blind and now I see” is another way of describing this. When the light comes through it dispels the darkness. Saul was converted by a bright light that surrounded him and he heard Jesus call him to Himself.
In heaven there are books written about each person on earth. We are all destined for heaven but we have to choose to follow Jesus, who came to make the way to the Kingdom of God. He is the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but through Him (John 14:6). All other ways promise a better life but are in darkness. We were all once deluded in thinking that we had everything in our control till some calamity happened. A crisis always results in an awakening. We can live our lives thinking all is well but death is real. Once we come face to face with death we become more vulnerable and then search for meaning.
Jesus came to give us a reason for living. His love turns the worst sinner into a saint. The light of the Kingdom of God will dispel all darkness. Life becomes a triumphant melody and our walk becomes a song of victory. Yes, death was conquered once and for all and we inherited eternal life. Today, whatever your state, come to Jesus and be saved. He loves sinners and came for sinners like you and me. No matter what your religious background or persuasion, He is enough for all. In His Kingdom there is love, joy and peace everlasting. You can live eternal life now and forever.
