A Time of Hope

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” — John 3:16

This is Easter weekend the time Christ our Savior rose from death, a horrible, suffering death, to give us hope that life exist beyond our mortal bodies.

My grandfather told me 50 some-odd years ago, he believed that God and Satan were in a war, not just a war but a war for the universe, and we, humans of earth, played a vital role in that war.

This was only his theory but I believe it to be a good one and still do. I look at what is happening to us, as humans, today and cannot help but remember those words. So now I am asking my own questions:

  • If we are in a galactic war, why are we, the humans of earth, chosen to be the linch pin in this war?
  • What makes us humans so special?

All I have is theories and no facts to back them up, because those facts will not be revealed to us until we pass through the door of death. But until that time we have a mission to fulfill.

And what is that mission?

To do our best, to become our best, to live to our fullest capability, and to become more than we think we are.

We accomplish that mission by fighting evil, overcoming our own negativity, and believing with all our heart that Divine Providence, who I think of as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, exist and needs our help. And in the process of helping Him we also help ourselves.

Perhaps we can think of it this way: Jesus died so that we humans may live past the door of death, and that we, the human race can actually help win the war against evil. Not only on this planet but within the galactic realm known as the universe.

Or maybe I’m just blowing smoke, but I’m getting old now and that door of death is just around the corner. And when I pass it, then and only then will I have the answers I seek.

Death is not the end, only the beginning. It should be interesting.

Happy Easter to all and remember you are better than you think you are.
