A Heavy Day: the passing of Heavy D.... Jesus & Death the Last Enemy

Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment. Hebrews 9:27

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. Mahatma Gandhi

A Heavy Day

The world mourns Heavy D (Dwight Arrington Myers.) The master of influential, inspiring, positive, non-woman degrading rap music is gone.  A total shock to fans and music industry of his sudden passing. 

What a difference a day can make

As the word spread of his death, people expressed their shock and disbelief with hopes that this was some publicity rumor. Those close to Heavy D, such as my classmate, Avery O. Williams, spoke of his last conversation of how they joked and talked like brothers. “There was no expectation, nor even a grain of thought that 24 hours later we wouldn't be talking sh** again, forever”

He will Rise again

When Mary and Martha experienced the death of their brother Lazarus it came as a total shock. They felt if their best friend, Jesus, would have been there, Lazarus would not have died John 11:21, 32. When death engulfs our minds it’s hard to process. We question and try to make sense of it. We often get angry with God as to why people die “before their time.” Such is the case  with Heavy D and Mary's feelings over Lazarus’ early demise. As mourning passes, the thought of death slowly vanishes, until it rises again. What is often overlooked is Jesus statement, which also applies to us all, Lazarus (Heavy D.) will raise again.

The after life

Most people attempt to live life completely, upright and moral so that when death comes like a thief in the night they will  ascend up to heaven with Christ. Not surprising, many people don’t believe this ideology nor in Jesus. I urge all to be careful of the unexpected trap when death comes; hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness along with anxieties of life. The answer and best preparation for death is summed up in John 11:25-26 where Jesus stated whoever believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.  

Say Yes today

When the shadows of death come we will be caught off guard. I hope and pray that those reading this believe in Heaven, the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. So much so that when it is time to give up the ghost there is no fear as to where you will be heading heaven not hell. If there is some doubt in your mind, I extend to you today an opportunity to accept Christ as your Savior so that you to can see and experience the true glory of God!
