A Blessed Rest Mike Johnson Revelation 14:13 says, “And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.”  The word “blessed” means “happy.”  There is an […]

“Everything I Have Is for Sale . . .”

by admin

“Everything I Have Is for Sale . . .” Mike Johnson A number of years ago a friend of mine had a classic automobile.  He really took care of that car.  Every so often, he would have it painted and would keep it polished to a showroom shine.  He took good care of it mechanically.  […]

Immortality

by admin

IMMORTALITY Mike Johnson  “Death is not a period but a comma in the story of life.” A comma is used in a sentence to indicate a pause.  A period is end punctuation.  It is used to show the end of a sentence.  With this idea in mind, the above quotation says a great deal.  It […]

Two Mandatory Appointments

by admin

TWO MANDATORY APPOINTMENTS Mike Johnson    There are very few things in life that we absolutely must do.  A person does not even absolutely have to eat.  A person, of course, must eat if he wants to live, but he can quit eating and die if he really wanted to.  However, there are two future […]

IT IS […]

The Spirits in Prison

by admin

The Spirits in Prison Mike Johnson  I Peter 3:18-20 is a passage which has prompted a lot of questions. It speaks of Jesus having gone to preach to the spirits in prison.  The text says: “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, […]

Strike the Tent

STRIKE THE TENT  Mike Johnson The last words people speak before they die may be spoken under a variety of circumstances.  Sometimes a person speaks his last words without realizing that death is near.  For example, a person’s last words may be a comment about what a beautiful day it is.  Sometimes a person’s last […]

The Brevity of Life

by admin

The Brevity of Life Mike Johnson The Bible uses many different terms to express the brevity of life.  It describes life as a wind, a cloud, grass, a flower, and also as a vapor. (Job 7:6-10, 14:1-2; James 4:14; I Pet. 1:24).  The Christian and the alien sinner constantly need to have the concept of […]

God’s View of the Death of the Righteous

by admin

God’s View of the Death of the Righteous Mike Johnson  Dealing with the death of a loved one can be one of the greatest agonies that a person has to face.  We think of the death of a loved one in terms of heartache, tears, sorrow, and pain.  Yet, Psalm 116:15 says, “Precious in the sight […]

Carried by Angels

by admin

Carried by Angels  Mike Johnson An interesting line occurs near the end of Hamlet, as Shakespeare has Horatio saying these words as Hamlet dies: “…Good night, sweet prince, / And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!” (5.2.361-2).  Shakespear’s idea of angels being near when an individual dies does not conflict with what we […]
