If you are a Christian:
“This is one reason why death will be the supreme, joyous adventured. Right now we’re like people walking through the woods with a noisy walkman*. Outside the birds are singing, but there’s too much noise pumping into our ears, and we can’t hear them at all. Then suddenly the batteries go dead…and for the first time we hear what’s really there!
So when the heart stops and we close our eyes for the last time to this world, and open them to the eternal universe… we shall suddenly see where we’ve been living, see the forces that matter: that overwhelming cosmos of angels and demons, God and satan, powers of heaven and hell that we’ve been wandering blindly amongst all this time. It will undoubtedly come as a shock; we’ll see what misdirected priorities, concerns and fears we had! But it’s going to be good; for above all we’ll see Jesus…”
