"...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
The thief on the cross met Jesus in Paradise the very day he died. O' what a blessed assurance we the followers of Jesus Christ have! Our last breath on earth is the first step in eternity with the Lord. The Lord Jesus offers this assurance to all those who believe in Him and He offers the invitation to every sinner. For a believer, living on earth or dying is really a win-win situation. Living on earth may not seem as win because of all the suffering, trials, and tribulation, but it really is, because when we have the Lord on our side, it is really a win, because His grace is all sufficient. Praise the Lord!
"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!
