Whether we believe it or not we all come from somewhere, and it is a law in life that everything must return to the point origin. The real man is not physical body, but the spirit. The physical body is like a cloth we all put on; the main thing is not the cloth but what lies behind the cloth. At death we will all drop the cloth (physical body) and take on the spiritual body, and our ascension to our spiritual home (heaven) all depends on the type of life we lived while here on earth.
The law of separation immediately takes effect at the point of death and there is no hiding at this point; the spirit stands as it is. One of the biggest lessons of life is that it is easier to shade whatever burden, sins, challenges, we are facing while still on earth, because after death, it becomes more burdensome for the spirit.
A man summarized the story of Heaven as a Man who left his home (heaven) with so much gold and silver to make a living and grow to maturity somewhere else in a place called (earth), but on arrival on earth, they said to him your gold and silver are worthless; here, it is tomatoes and onions that are valuable. So the man took the earthly advice and threw away his silver and gold, and labored for tomatoes and onions.
After years of life on earth, he became rich in tomatoes and onions. And the time to return home came (death), so he loaded his onions and tomatoes into a big a ship and sailed home. On arriving home his fellow countrymen came out to welcome him, they noticed that the content of the ship was already rotten, and had a foul smell. In a candid response, his countrymen told him you have wasted a good portion of your time on nothing, onions and tomatoes are not needed here.
In truth, this a reflection of the lives of most of us on earth. We labor so much to gather the fine houses, cars, and riches of life, but after life these things become wasteful and of no use in our journey home to heaven. We neglect the gold and silver which are (love, kindness, trust, faithfulness, patience).
So my question to each and every one who has read this is: What are you laboring for, we are transit on earth our home is in paradise. Comments and questions are welcomed below.
