Kevin Mark – 2014

by on March 25, 2014

We will never forget the day that you left us.
In some ways it seems like yesterday.
In some ways it seems like a distant dream that cannot possibly be true.

It is 2014 here on Earth. We do not know what time it is where you are. Eternity is beyond our grasp. Eternity is another world. Eternity is the world where you are now.

We loved you so much. We still love you. Now we cannot express our love to you but we know that God loves you so much more than we do and we know that you are being loved far better than we could possibly love you. It is just that we miss you. And so, we grieve still. Because we miss you so much.

We know that where you are, there is no sin. There is no temptation. There are no tears and no crying and no sadness and no sorrow. We can only imagine how wonderful that could possibly be. No one is deaf. No one is blind. No one is crippled. No one dies. No one gets old. No one is abused and there are no abusers.

All is righteousness and truth. All is joy and peace. All is holiness. There are no misunderstandings. There are no hospitals. There are no wars. There are no accidents. No one is hungry. No one is thirsty. No one is cold. No one is starving. There is no slander and no politics. No one is offended. It must be wonderful – beyond our imagination.

Our hearts long for that world. Sometimes God gives us a little glimpse of His desire for His Kingdom. Knowing that you are there gives us a little glimpse of that Kingdom. Children have a place in that Kingdom. You are there now.

“Thus says the LORD: ‘I will return to Zion, And dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, The Mountain of the LORD of hosts, The Holy Mountain.’
“Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Old men and old women shall again sit in the streets of Jerusalem, Each one with his staff in his hand Because of great age.
5 The streets of the city Shall be full of boys and girls Playing in its streets.’
“Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘If it is marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, Will it also be marvelous in My eyes?’ Says the LORD of hosts.
“Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Behold, I will save My people from the land of the east And from the land of the west;
I will bring them back, And they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. They shall be My people And I will be their God, In truth and righteousness.’
Zechariah 8:3-8

We know that Jesus said, “Allow the little children to come to me and do not forbid them – for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.”

We will join you someday. That day is getting closer. Each day is one day closer. Each year is one year closer. Maybe God took you home early so we would miss you and long to be with you again. Maybe God wanted part of our hearts in eternity while we continue to live here on earth. Part of our hearts went with you when you left.

God’s Kingdom knows no boundaries. You are in God’s Kingdom. We are in God’s Kingdom. We are just in different parts of God’s Kingdom. All those parts will someday be united in one. No more separation. No more leaving and not coming back. No more pain of parting. In that day there will be one Kingdom and one King and His name will be One.

Oneness is the longing of the human heart. God gave us that longing. Life is longing. Longing for oneness. Oneness with God. Oneness with each other. Oneness with the love that only God can give.

This world is a hard place. There is trouble and pain and sorrow and struggle. You are now free from that. Your world is not like that.

You were carried by angels to God’s place of peace. What must that have been like – to experience that world? To now live in that world? Angels and peace and God and truth and righteousness and love and oneness with God and His Kingdom.

That is God’s promise. That is yours now. It will be ours someday. We are coming to be with you. What a day that will be.

John 11:25-26: “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.”
