FYC = “For Your Consideration”

Not for response (you’re welcome to) but that we think on things eternal.

The following (it seems) will need corrective measures in heaven. For lack of a better term I’m saying there’ll be changes in “personhood.” I haven’t the slightest doubt God can “arrange us” so we’ll be able to handle these: 

Mr. “A” makes heaven: his wife does not.   Mrs. “B” makes heaven: her husband does not.

Mr. & Mrs. “C” go to heaven: one or more child is lost.   Children from family “D” go to heaven: dad and/or mom are lost.

Friend “E” enters heaven: his/her life-long and best acquaintance never comes.

What? No Body in the tomb?

Who ever heard the like?

Who can thus presume,

That One has risen

That One is no longer dead long?

Who ever heard that any successfully fled.

He is not here?

Why, this is where they stopped the bier,

This is where a sheet-bound Frame

From which such wondrous words once came

This is where they laid it down,

And sorrowfully, slowly, slumped back to town.

This has to be the lonely spot 

Surely, I’ve not “forgot”

The roll of the land, the look of the vale,

This is the place, lifeless and stale

That One’s precious Body came to rest

(What other point on earth is so blest?)

But the tomb is empty, there’s no Body in the grave

What ever do you suppose? – – –

Why, here are His grave clothes,

Here is the napkin they wound ‘round His head

These are the items so know with the dead

But He, the One who briefly wore them,

Is gone – you’ll have to store them.

He’ll never need graves clothes again.

He left them low, He did ascend

He showed Himself – Many did Him see

Life gave way to eternity!

The One who came the lost to save,

Has conquered Sin, Hell, and the Grave!

Too “good” to go to hell?

The very concept flies in the face of God.

ON THIS DATE

John Harper died 4/14/1912, in the icy waters near the Titanic.  He was a Baptist preacher from Glasgow, Scotland who was returning to preach again at Moody Church where he had previously ministered a three month period. He & his daughter, Nana were aboard when she “struck an iceberg” about 11:40 PM.  John wrapped Nana in a blanket & handed her over to go into a lifeboat.  He handed his own life-jacket to another passenger.

A survivor clearly remembered that John shouted “Women, children & the unsaved into the lifeboats.” It was John, according to book, The Titanic’s Last Hero, who called upon the band to play “Nearer, My God, to Thee.”  He prayed on deck “with holy joy on his face.”  When the ship started lurching he jumped into the water swimming from one to another urging them to call on Jesus & be saved.

One, Aquilla Webb, told four years later how John had come near him (both floating on wreckage) asking if he was saved.  Webb said he was not to which John said “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ & thou shalt be saved.” A wave pushed John away but God allowed him be swept by Webb again & John asked “Are you saved now?” When Webb answered in the negative John repeated the verse & shortly after was claimed by hypothermia & slipped under the cold water. Webb said, “I am John Harper’s last convert.”

There’s Inconsistency among Christians about forced death. If a friend is pro Abortion you’re tempted to be less friendly. If a friend is PRO WAR you think nothing about it. Why? Both are killings! Both the baby & soldier were forced from earth pre-maturely. The baby goes safely to heaven.  Soldiers are not generally saints (on whichever side) & death plunges many soldiers to hell. Heaven is being populated by ABORTIONS. Hell is being populated by WAR.

Christians, we should oppose both abortion-on-demand A-N-D war

“Holiness or hell” made some bristle;

Not preaching it let some men whistle.

But oh, if we’re not holy at death

If carnal, as we draw our last breath

Hell will be real: fire, sulfur, sizzle.
