F.Z.KJV 1 Corinthians 15:55 O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory?

Eccl.12...live before the eyes of the LORD...then this verse will be your comfort...Rom.14:8..whethe
We have place this text in Phil. on the grave stone of our only boy who died 2years ago..he was 9 years old..so full of LIFE AND ENERGY..God has blessed him with everything in this life..people would have said..and they did: WHY HIM? HE HAD SO MUCH POTENTIAL..My dream for him was that he will proclaim the gospel of JESUS CHRIST with boldness..He had all the potential - one friend called him 'little John the Baptist' eating all kinds of raw fish, so happy in nature..loved the basics in life , free! ..and God changed his little heart miraculous in a visable period of 6 months before the accident (do not know were it all started) He was so aware of the FACT that he must stand before CHRIST JESUS...SOON..and are not prepared...this little boy who lived like "Dennis the menace'...suddenly had a vision of eternity and an urgency for a new heart..even prayed at meal times.."LORD..PLEASE CHANGE MY HEART"... forget to pray for the food...walking from a cricket game..his first words, 2 weeks before his accident.."MOM, please tell me, how can I be sure I am born of GOD"...such a urgency...we shared and prayed and trusted the LORD...not knowing what lay before us...but GOD's SOVEREIGN RULE HAS BURNED INTO OUR HEARTS AND HEADS AND SOUL...Rom.8:28-30. ALL THE MATTERS IS THE CONDITION OF YOUR SOUL...it will live for all eternity..in hell or with the LORD
L.F.Very true indeed.It's an imperfect world until the day of judgement.God knows the reasons behind everything in life.Jesus says,"Believe in me and you are saved".God bless
