The Sunday Message

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.”John 11:25-26 (NIV)

It’s always a sad time when someone close to us dies. We miss them terribly and with them being gone it’s like we have a hole in our heart.

Many Christians believe that we will see our fellow Christians again in Heaven. Believing in that has helped me through some tough times when family members have died. Since I knew that they were Christians, I believe that I will see them again in Heaven.

I remember singing the gospel song, written in 1898 that was titled, “When We All Get to Heaven.” The chorus goes like this:

When we all get to heaven,
what a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus,
we’ll sing and shout the victory.

Amen to that! Will you be going to Heaven when you die? Click HERE if you are not sure and for more information.

Topics this week include analysis of Trump’s speech, Al Baldasaro & Treason, Bullock/Gianforte & Debates, the Montana Family Foundation Pledge, the Tracy Houck Matter is NOT closed, and much more!
