YOUR LIFE IS A VAPOR
I have promised you abundant life by following Me. You are on a trajectory, that if followed will bring life through death. It is death to the lower life that breaks open My life in you. In Me you live and move and have your being. No longer fear death or the process of dying. I will never leave you nor forsake you, even in those final moments on the earth.
Do not worry how others will die or if you will be alone. You are never alone, for I am with you even to the end. As I said to Peter, I say to you, "Follow me". This life is but a vapor. Refuse to get caught up in the temporal when there is so much more waiting just ahead, for surely we will be together forever. No more tears. No more pain. No more death. It is just around the corner, so press on, and follow closely. I am with you, My love.
Matthew 28:18-20 The Passion Translation (TPT)
18 Then Jesus came close to them and said, “All the authority of the universe has been given to me. 19 Now go in my authority and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 20 And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.”
John 21:20-22 The Passion Translation (TPT)
20 Then Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the disciple who sat close to Jesus at the Last Supper and had asked him, “Lord, who is the one that will betray you?”) 21 So when Peter saw him, he asked Jesus, “What’s going to happen to him?”
22 Jesus replied, “If I decide to let him live until I return, what concern is that of yours? You must still keep on following me!”
James 4:14-15 The Passion Translation (TPT)
14 But you don’t have a clue what tomorrow may bring. For your fleeting life is but a warm breath of air that is visible in the cold only for a moment and then vanishes! 15 Instead you should say, “Our tomorrows are in the Lord’s hands and if he is willing we will live life to its fullest and do this or that.”
