Reflections From The Bible And Life

Newfound Faith

Numbers 21:4-9; Psalm 78; Philippians 2:6-11; John 3:3-17 Generations after generations, man has proven to be stubborn, selfish and sinful. During a time where technology was not even born yet, God parted the Red sea to save the Israelites. He provided them manna from heaven. He cracked the rocks to let out water from the deep. He did all these and more, and yet, The Israelites were quick to forget that He is the God of all, and tested God numerous times, not heeding the instructions given to them through the prophets, like Moses. The Old testament reveals a cyclical series of events like these all throughout, and same with the New testament.Yet God repeatedly showed mercy the moment they pleaded for mercy. On top of this, God sent His only Son so that man may be saved through Him.Even nowadays, God constantly reveals His goodness to us through the many people around us. In 1973, there was this agnostic woman who had a near-death experience in what seemed to be heaven.

“Why are you crying?” asked the one she referred to as the Divine Being.

“Because I can now feel how I made them feel,” she replied. She also told the Divine Being that she deserved punishment for that.

“Why are you too hard on yourself? I am not here to condemn you,” said the Divine Being. Do you want to go back and make things right?”

She did go back, and since then lived a with a newfound Christian faith and purpose. The author now travels around the world preaching about life after death.

A more current testimony with similar experience comes from a writer’s son, Colton Burpo. The author, Todd Burpo, compiled a series of interviews with his son and made it into a book, entitled, Heaven Is For Real. The book will reveal what heaven really looks like and will only prove that heaven is not a figment of our imagination and God is real.

There’s also another book with the same title written by Thomas Choo.

God constantly reaches out to us. All we have to do is accept Him and believe in His love and mercy, as well as His dominion over all beings and things, seen or unseen.
