Hey Ken shouldn’t this say the life that ends before “it” dies? Yup but nope. You see the message is for you and is intended to teach you how to check your own Christian effectiveness pulse and see if you are alive to all things God or if you gave up on Him and His pre-paid by Jesus package which has all of the instructions you need to be more than a conqueror in Him (Rom 8:37). Right?
I know how could any Christian be living outside of their calling and purpose and consider themselves alive in Christ (Rom 6:11)? Oh, now you’re meddling Ken. Nope, I am just like you, destined to attend the same after-life on earth meeting as you will be, and I think it is better if you and I chat about your earthly Christian death before you or I have to explain it to Jesus. Again, better you and I have this conversation now so that you can change the outcome with Jesus at your future predestined date. Yes, even your death is predestined.
If you think He will be tolerant of laziness, purposeful ignorance I.E. not reading your bible, or wants you to tell Him the story about how you a Christian had lived your life with one foot in and one foot out, then no doubt you know a Jesus I do not know nor have read about in my bible. Oh I know this just got real, but God gave us each other because we all have blind spots, and no matter how much anointing you have, you will still need others from time to time to point those things out hiding in them thar blind spots. I know that I have them and therefore pay attention to what others say when they think that they see something. No, not everything others say will be spot on but some of those things will be and they will be warnings and corrections sent by God.
Wow Ken I heard you were a straight out of the gate Paradise Podcast Preacher teacher but this stings a bit. If it doesn’t you are either already dead and desensitized to the things of God and unable to hear or see Him, or you are still alive enough to change course, or to get on course, and/or to be encouraged to continue down the course as you are. The sting is a form of hope, and it is for this reason we are embarking down this trail and not climbing up a tree.
