Are we not pleased to die?

Posted by appolus on November 17, 2022

2Co 5:5  Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent to be well pleasing to Him.

Whether we live or whether we die, our aim, in this present reality, and the Kingdom to come is to glorify God. It is explained to us that we walk by faith and not by sight, we are confident, yes even well pleased, that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. To walk by faith is to gather to ourselves an eternal weight of glory. To trust in God, whether we live or whether we die is well pleasing to God. How many of us can truly say that our greatest desire is to be “absent from this body” so that we might be present with the Lord? This state of mind and soul and body is well pleasing to the Lord. We overcome the enemy in this life by three fundamental elements. The Blood of the Lamb. The Word of our testimony. And we love not our lives unto death.For we know that when that time comes for us that our “mortality shall be swallowed up by life.” We shall be clothed in robes of immortality.

We experience a portion of eternal life here in our present mortality. We have glimpsed it. We have touched it. We have tasted it. Perhaps just a moment here, or a vision there, but we know the unmistakable marks of the Kingdom in the depths of our hearts. It creates in us such peace, not the kind of peace that the world has, the world can never have this peace. It creates in us a sure knowledge and a blessed hope of the coming reality, when our redemption is complete , body and soul. Where this corruptible flesh is raised in-corruption. We walk in the power of God, having overcome this world in Christ. And if we have truly overcome in Him then we know that this present reality is but a vapor. We desire, above all else, above family, above friends, above country, to be with Him. To be where He is. What holds you back saint from walking in such power? Let it go and take hold of that eternal hand.
