Are these familiar Bible verses? “In the beginning, GOD created the heavens and the earth…” HE was lonely, and created a man and a woman. In Jeremiah 1:5, HE said: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I set you apart…” My interpretation? God knows me, loves me, and gave me my Soul.
These three ice cubes demonstrate how I visualize my life process and the concept of “SOUL.” The first ice cube represents my Birth; at Midlife, the second ice cube has partially melted signifying my life’s half over. When Death comes, the third ice cube will have dissolved into a puddle and released my SOUL. Here’s my evidence:
GOD said in Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I set you apart…” When I was born on November 12th my SOUL was included. At seventy-two, I’m in the homestretch, but because of my maternal McDonald genes, I may live for another twenty years, as my mom and her siblings did. Psalm 90:10-12 tells us: “The years of our life are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty; yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away.” When Death comes my SOUL will leap from this earthly shell because I’m a Christ-follower. I’ll have a new body in my eternal, Heavenly home. Verse 12 concludes “So teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
Are you familiar with Pascal’s Wager? According to www.dictionary.com the argument put forth by Blaise Pascal that it is in one’s best interest to believe in the existence of God, as it is a rational assumption and does no harm, and the possibility of eternal punishment in hell outweighs any advantage of believing otherwise.
