I'm Outta Here..You Joining Me?

We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8
Some day the trumpet of God will sound and believers will be taken up to meet him in the air. Are you going to be one of them? Are you sure? If you have trusted God as your savior and asked Him to be Lord then no worries. 
I know of people who dread death. They want to stay here on Earth so much when in fact dying for a Christian is a promotion. Interviews with those who have died and were brought back to life reflected a glorious peaceful experience on what many refer to as 'the other side'. Our life here is so very short compared to what awaits us. 
On this earth our struggles are not against mankind but as it says in Ephesians 6:12 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world's darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." Keep that in mind. There is a Heaven and there indeed is a Hell. We should not wish anyone to go there. 
PRAYER: Lord Jesus help me to give peace to those who struggle with fear of dying. I know your kingdom is indescribable. Thanks for the glory that awaits us as we leave this temporary dwelling place. Comfort those who fear and use me Lord to help show people the way. In Jesus' name. Amen.
