If you want to learn what your earthly experience is about, I strongly suggest reading the Old Testament Book Ecclesiastes which was written by King Solomon the son of King David. (As in David and Goliath or David and Bathsheba or David, a man after God’s heart) I believe King David to be the example of what a human can hope to become. Another human would be Jesus the Christ or Messiah. Unlike Christ, King David was not of the divine Trinity. He was a man that was not exempt from sin; but he knew God and accepted the consequences of his sins. David longed to be a Godly man, but his human circumstances lets us know that even the most righteous amongst humans is not immune to the temptations of Satan. As a human, the young David showed faith by saying: “Hey, I’m not going to sit and let that Philistine with a pituitary glandular problem talk trash about my God”. David was a kid and he stood up to the Philistine Warrior who “weighed in” at an estimated at 9’6″. (nine feet and six inches tall) The kid took on the challenge while King Saul cowardly “lead from behind”.
King Solomon on the other hand is the son of the Giant slayer. He inherits David’s kingdom and also is credited with building the Temple. In his book, Solomon talks about everything he did to get a buzz. From Concubines (The King’s girl toys) to conquering other armies. And what does Solomon have to say about his accomplishments? In short: “The one who dies with the most toys is………dead”. He goes on to say that someone (like him) will come along that did not build the temple and will not appreciate it either. In the New American Standard version of the Bible (The same as the King James minus the “Thees” and “Thous” uses the term “Vanities”. Solomon says “All is Vanity” in the watered down “Good News” version, it uses the phrase “Chasing the wind”. As in: “All is useless, like chasing the wind”. The book Ecclesiates is about your purpose on earth. He surmizes that in the end, your relationship with God is all that matters. Is this like having a mother that takes pre-natal vitamins when she is pregnant with you? Is this like learning at a young age to take notes in class rather than pass notes? Is this like trying to understand and learn from your homework than just “getting it done”?
At a point in your life where you finally make the mountain curve, you realize that looks, health and eventually wealth are “fleeting”. Even the attractive sins lose their magnetism. If not you continue to go off the side of the mountain and in doing so, take others with you. I honestly believe that this is a result of tuning out your higher vibration. (AKA wisdom)
There are two types of people. Those who only believe what they can see and touch and those who realize that a creator that can make a system that works so perfectly would not let the story end with His creation that shows love for Him turning to dust. Again, I could write a blog on why people refuse to believe in an omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient God.
So What Are the 3 Destinations after 7 or 8 decades of biological living?
Hell no we won’t go:
I call these spirits the confused, frightened or just lost. Not lost as in God has forgotten about them. The higher power will see everyone at judgment. If you’re smart you will not look up. Keep looking at your toes and be as humble as you possibly can. If you want to connect with the “Hell no we won’t go” crowd; go visit the Old Washoe Club in Virginia city NV. (Or any popular haunted location). I’ve seen too many legit non-believers who confess that there are intelligent entities that exist without human bodies. Spirits or “Ghosts” do try to hang on to the earthly realm. There excuses may be that they fear judgment and do not want to face the Judge. Some don’t know that they’re dead in the earthly realm. Most do not want to accept that they are dead and hesitate to walk into the light.
I’ve read and heard wild testimonies of former non-believers that were fortunate enough to experience a near death experience. One said he was being spread over a burning abyss with ropes attached to all 4 extremities. Another saw what he said looked like a monitor. (A large alligator sized lizard) with red eyes. If you want more vivid descriptions, I strongly suggest you go to http://www.NDERF.org . I could stay up all night reading about people who had out of Body Experiences and lived to talk about it.
The typical story of the believer who died for a brief time and lived to tell about it said they didn’t want to come back. Their stories go like this:
Any pain to be suffered comes first. Instinctively you fight to live. That is automatic.
It is inconceivable to the conscious mind that any other reality could possibly exist beside the earth-world of matter bounded by time and space. We are used to it. We have been trained since birth to live and thrive in it. We know ourselves to be ourselves by the external stimuli we receive. Life tells us who we are and we accept its telling. That, too, is automatic, and to be expected.
Your body goes limp.
Your heart stops.
No more air flows in or out.
You lose sight, feeling, and movement, although the ability to hear goes last. Identity ceases. The “you” that you once were becomes only a memory.
There is no pain at the moment of death.
Only peaceful silence . . . calm. . . quiet.
But you still exist.
It is easy not to breathe. In fact, it is easier, more comfortable, and infinitely more natural not to breathe than to breathe. The biggest surprise for most people in dying is to realize that dying does not end life. Whether darkness or light comes next, or some kind of event, be it positive, negative, or somewhere in-between, expected or unexpected, the biggest surprise of all is to realize you are still you. You can still think, you can still remember, you can still see, hear, move, reason, wonder, feel, question, and tell jokes ? if you wish. You are still alive, very much alive. Actually, you’re more alive after death than at any time since you were last born. This is different; different because you no longer wear a dense body to filter and amplify the various sensations you had once regarded as the only valid indicators of what constitutes life. You had always been taught one has to wear a body to live.
If you expect to cease to exist when you die you will be disappointed.
The only thing dying does is help you release, slough off, and discard the “jacket” you once wore (more commonly referred to as a body).
When you die you lose your body.
That’s all there is to it.
Nothing else is lost.
You are not your body. It is just something you wear for a while, (Like your mother’s uterus) because living in the earth-plane is infinitely more meaningful and more involved if you are encased in its trappings and subject to its rules.
WHAT DEATH IS
There is a step-up of energy at the moment of death, an increase in speed as if you are suddenly vibrating faster than before. Using radio as an analogy, this speed-up is comparable to having lived all your life at a certain radio frequency when all of a sudden someone or something comes along and flips the dial. That flip shifts you to another, higher wavelength. The original frequency where you once existed is still there. It did not change. Everything is still just the same as it was. Only you changed, only you speeded up to allow entry into the next radio frequency on the dial.
As is true with all radios and radio stations, there can be bleed-overs or distortions of transmission signals due to interference patterns. These can allow or force frequencies to coexist or commingle for indefinite periods of time. Normally, most shifts up the dial are fast and efficient; but, occasionally, one can run into interference, perhaps from a strong emotion, a sense of duty, or a need to fulfill a vow, or keep a promise. This interference could allow coexistence of frequencies for a few seconds, days, or even years (perhaps explaining hauntings); but, sooner or later, eventually, every given vibrational frequency will seek out or be nudged to where it belongs. You fit your particular spot on the dial by your speed of vibration. You cannot coexist forever where you do not belong.
Who can say how many spots there are on the dial or how many frequencies there are to inhabit. No one knows.
You shift frequencies in dying. You switch over to life on another wave-length. You are still a spot on the dial but you move up or down a notch or two.
You don’t cease to exist when you die. You shift your consciousness and speed of vibration.
That’s what death is, . . a shift.
Some NDErs say they felt free. They say they saw a tunnel that they were drawn to. Once in the tunnel, they saw a bright light. Brighter than Xenon and it expressed the emotion of pure love. Love is a common theme that most who survive near death experiences talk about. (Those who get to enter into the bright light). Those who experience the other place say they experienced fear, regret and darkness. Many say they are greeted by relatives who have passed. One then tells them it’s not their time, or, a deity gives them the choice of staying or going back. It’s at this time they must weigh the consequences of possibly leaving your children parentless or going back to suffer the rebuilding process and even going through the rest of your life looking like the elephant man. Your decision will weigh on your ultimate destination regardless. Did you go back for yourself? Did you go back for your children or spouse? Did you stay because you knew you would face great physical pain upon returning. Did you go back to seek salvation? Remember, every action has an opposite re-action.
You ultimately choose your destination. If I gave you a choice of two gifts; the first being the largest winning lotto ticket in history and the second a guaranteed place in heaven, which would you pick? If you have to think about it, you’re not right with God.
I don’t know about the 7th realm of heaven or what judgment day will be like. I do know that we live and we die a physical death. I choose to believe that after our physical death our spiritual existence is all that is left. I’ve heard we will get new bodies free of sickness or illness. Again, that is hearsay. I’ve chosen to be with my creator. I am doing whatever I can do to get the attention of my creator.
In the New Testament,
Jesus is quoted as saying in Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’
~ “but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter”. Conversely; “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness”.
It would seem Jesus must know you, and perhaps for doing the will of His Father.
