Did you know that when we die-
We d o n ‘ t become angels!?
God already created angels.
They’re created beings,
Sent to help us. ⬇️
“Isn’t it obvious that all angels are sent to help out with those lined up to receive salvation?”
Hebrews 1:14 MSG
But when we die.
That’s not what we become.
1 John 5:11-13
If you’ve ever heard someone say, “Heaven gained another angel.”
It’s a beautiful sentiment, really. Picturing your beloved looking down from Heaven, floating on a cloud, with angel wings. Our world built a different concept that’s flawed away from the truth.
But the Bible is clear that there is quite a distinction between people and angels.
People will remain people in Heaven.
(Just more perfect and not flawed)
Angels will remain angels.
And it tells us there will be a new Heaven and a new earth.
Don’t take my word for it though.
Pray on it. Go read it for yourself.
Ask God to help reveal what will happen when you die? Ask Him to help you let go of any mythical comforts that humans for whatever reason have built along the way.
And let it be a comfort to you that your loved one(s) will not have angel wings.
But that God loves us so much to keep us as the individuals that He created to look similar in Heaven as well as our loved ones that have been born again.
And lastly, I’d stress on- because I’ve been there-
Jesus needs to be your FIRST and most TOP priority for you to repent and accept Him as Lord over your life.
I realized I wouldn’t get to Heaven simply because I wanted to see Bo again. I’m grateful that God revealed the action that needed to be involved.
But that doesn’t mean that He didn’t see my heartbreak and mourning.
That doesn’t mean that He isn’t there to comfort me now.
God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. -Revelation 21:3-4.
I once was told by a grade school teacher that I write how I talk. 😂
I don’t say these things for condemnation.
But man, isn’t it such a shift in perspective?
What a gift it is to have an idea of what to expect at the end of your life. It’s truly a treasure.
