"...Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise." - Luke 23 V43
"We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord." - 2 Corinthians 5 V8
Believers in Christ Jesus have the assurance that our last breath on earth will be the first moment in heaven in the presence of our Saviour Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ conquered death and those who die believing in His name will not die but live with the Lord forever. The thief on the cross was blessed to be with the Lord in paradise even though he lived a sinful life all his life. But he made a very important decision before dying, that is, he trusted in the Lord Jesus and believed in His name. Do not be deceived by the trickery of Satan, who deceives the whole world and ready to drag everyone into the lake of fire with him, but trust in the Lord Jesus who lives forever and ever, and He gives eternal life to those who open their heart to Him. Praise God!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
