WHO SIGNED THE DEATH CERTIFICATE

LUKE 23:40-43

BUT THE OTHER ANSWERING REBUKED HIM, SAYING, DOST THOU NOT FEAR GOD, SEEING THAT THOU ART IN THE SAME CONDEMNATION

AND WE INDEED JUSTLY, FOR WE RECEIVE THE DUE REWARD OF OUR DEEDS, BUT THIS MAN HATH DONE NOTHING AMISS

AND HE SAID UNTO JESUS, LORD, REMEMBER ME WHEN THOU COMEST INTO THY KINGDOM

AND JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, VERILY, I SAY UNTO THEE, TODAY SHALT THOU BE WITH ME IN PARADISE

FOR THE NEXT LITTLE WHILE, LET ME BORROW YOUR PRAYERS AND YOUR IMAGINATIONS AS WE ATTEMPT TO ANSWER THE QUESTION, WHO SIGNED THE DEATH CERTIFICATE?

IT IS CUSTOMARY THAT WHEN SOMEONE DIES VIOLENTLY, THE NEXT OF KIN IS NOTIFIED BY WAY OF A TELEPHONE CALL, A TELEGRAM, OR A VISIT FROM A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER.

AN AUTOPSY IS PERFORMED AND A DEATH CERTIFICATE IS THEN CREATED AND IS FILED WITH THE STATE HEALTH DEPARTMENT OR THE BUREAU OF VITAL STATISTICS STATING THE CAUSE OF DEATH.

AND THAT’S WHY I FIND IT STRANGE THAT I HAVE BEEN HEARING RUMORS THAT MY BIG BROTHER ON MY FATHERS SIDE HAS DIED VIOLENTLY AND WAS BURIED AND NO ONE TOOK THE TIME TO NOTIFY ME SO I COULD GO AND PAY MY LAST RESPECTS.

WHO SIGNED THE DEATH CERTIFICATE?

WHAT WAS THE DOCTORS NAME THAT DECLARED TO THE WORLD THAT HE HAD DIED?

WHO WROTE THE OBITUARY?

WHO DID THE EULOGY?

WHY WAS I NOT INFORMED BEING AS I AM A JOINT HEIR AND A BROTHER

IF THERE WAS SOME QUESTION AS TO THE VALIDITY OF MY CLAIM, THEY COULD HAVE GONE TO THE LIBRARY OF HEAVEN AND LOOKED IN THE LAMBS BOOK OF LIFE OR IN THE SECTION CALLED THE WORD OF GOD AND LOOKED IN THE 8TH CHAPTER OF ROMANS AROUND THE 17TH VERSE OR LOOKED IN THE BOOK OF GALATIANS AROUND THE 3RD CHAPTER AND THE 26-29 VERSE AND THEY WOULD HAVE FOUND THESE WORDS

“THE SPIRIT ITSELF BEARS WITNESS WITH OUR SPIRIT THAT WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD. AND IF CHILDREN THEN HEIRS OF GOD, AND JOINT HEIRS WITH CHRIST…

AND IT GOES ON TO SAY FOR YE ARE ALL CHILDREN OF GOD BY FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. AND IF YE BE CHRIST’S, THEN ARE YE ABRAHAM’S SEED AND HEIRS ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE.”

SOMEBODY OUGHT TO TELL ME, WHO SIGNED THE DEATH CERTIFICATE?

THE BIBLE TELLS ME THAT WE ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION

A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD

A PECULIAR PEOPLE

A HOLY NATION

HEAVEN’S AMBASSADORS AND WE ARE FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE.

AND BEING AS WE ARE OF ROYAL BLOOD, THERE ARE CERTAIN FORMALITIES THAT MUST BE ADHERED TO WHEN SOMEONE IN THE ROYAL FAMILY PASSES.

THERE IS A LOT OF FANFARE AND CEREMONIES INVOLVED. YOU SEE, WHEN THE PRESIDENT OR A DIGNITARY PASSES THEY ARE NOT RUSHED INTO THE GROUND. THEIR BODY LIES IN STATE FOR A FEW DAYS SO THAT PEOPLE CAN COME AND PAY THEIR FINAL RESPECTS AND TO MY KJNOWLEDGE NONE OF THIS HAS OCCURRED

SOMEBODY TELL ME, WHO SIGNED THE DEATH CERTIFICATE?

I READ WHAT WAS LATER DESCRIBED AS HIS LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT, WHERE HE SAID IN MY FATHER’S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS, IF IT WAS NOT SO, I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU.

HE WENT ON TO SAY, AND I’M PARAPHRASING NOW, I GOT TO LEAVE YOU FOR A LITTLE WHILE. BUT DON’T WORRY ABOUT ME BECAUSE I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU, AND WHEN I COME AGAIN I WILL RECEIVE YOU UNTIL MYSELF THAT WHERE I AM THERE YOU MAY BE ALSO.
