The coronavirus might have taken lives, but it couldn’t take away lives.
Only God can create a lifetime of accomplishments and memories.
What COVID did take away were services and funerals where the deceased are honored. Hopefully, that will simply be delayed and the dead will have their day.
Within this context, the rapid distinction between life and death became ever clearer when the celebration of the past was removed.
Simply put, there may be a silver lining in that those left behind might be thinking of how fast eternity can come upon them and perhaps reflect on their past instead of others doing that for them at their funeral.
That’s another thing COVID can’t do. It can’t stop judgment nor reward. In that sense, it is powerless over the grave.
PORTAL TO HEAVEN: Funerals smooth over what is really happening in the supernatural realm. For details, one should take bible literacy very seriously.
Everyone has to die once, then face the consequences. Christ’s death was also a one-time event, but it was a sacrifice that took care of sins forever. And so, when he next appears, the outcome for those eager to greet him is, precisely, salvation.
