In the past years, I have become more and more of a sceptic and for this reason, I no longer fully subscribe the contents of this page.
My final words . . .
The sudden death
of one of my nephews in the summer of '95,
made me realize that life can end at any moment.
My nephew of just three years old was drowned within a few minutes.
His body was only found half an hour later.
Although we do not think about death all the time,
each second of our life could be the last one.
Nobody can guarantee us that we will still be alive tomorrow.
In the light of this reality, there are some things
that I would like to say to you, before one of us dies.
If only 5 minutes would remain us, then these are
the things that I would like to say to you.
That is why I call them: `My final words'.
God loves you
The most important thing that I have discovered is that
God loves us, and that He is actively seeking our
hearts. He is a perfect Father, who is sensitive to
our needs, who always listens to us, and looks at us,
as a father looks at his child. He is always patient,
and forgiving. If we come to Him, His arms are wide open
to receive us, to embrace us, to comfort us, and to provide
shelter for us.
God wants to have fellowship with us!
God looks for you
I am convinced that God looks for you, that He seeks you.
But you might be asking yourself, if God loves me and seeks me,
why do I not see Him?
The answer to this is:
God is so close that He can be found by those who seek Him,
but so far away that He is not seen by those who rather ignore Him.
There is a separation
Instead of seeking God, and giving glory to Him, we all have been
seeking ourself, and try to find glory (honour and love) for ourselves.
A very well known verse says:
For God so loved the world that He gave His
only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have
This verse both mentions God's love (for which it uses a special
Greek word for unconditional love), and it mentions the possibility
of us to perish. Because of our decision to follow our own
way, we are separated from God, and will perish, if we do not
return to God.
If you do not already know God, as a child knows it's father, I plead
you to honestly seek God, in order that you may find peace and fulfilment
in your life.
He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face
of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries
of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might
grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of
us; for in Him we live and move and exist.
