Scotty called upon the name of Jesus as the Holy Spirit prompted him near the moment of his brutal death on earth. Then like the ‘thief’ on the cross next to Jesus, Scotty was relieved of his possessed and painful life on earth and permitted into the Kingdom of Heaven with a clean heart and for once a clean mind; with out the demons presence that tormented him on earth.
Scott witnessed the Heavens and God’s majesty with clarity of thought. Since Scotty had repented just in time, his slate was wiped clean. Though the memories of his life remained with him, they were no longer part of his record in Heaven. Scotty was greeted at Heaven’s gates by his Grandma and Grandpa Ludwick and other assorted family members that Scotty vaguely remembered. But his spirit recognized them instantly. He was welcomed with love and open arms. Love he had not remembered experiencing for a long time.
There were tears in Heaven that Sunday at November 8th (earth’s time). It was tears of joy particularly by his Grandma Ludwick, who had looked lovingly over Scotty’s years on earth with concern. Grandpa was well pleased to see Scotty made it… Scotty is the son of his son’s daughter.
Then Scotty had to appear before God. With fear and trembling he recognized the magnificence, perfection, and righteous judgment of God the Father. His memories of the last few years of his life tormented him as he shook in the presence of the Almighty, fearing the worst. Scotty’s body quaked with shame and fear of the deserved judgment about to be bestowed upon his soul forever. Why had he not known the ‘reality’ of his action on earth? No words could describe such sentencing about to take place and the consequences of his endless sins.
Then Jesus appeared. Jesus spoke to God the Father with tenderness and firmness. “Father this child, son of Susie and child of the Ludwick’s called upon my name and was saved. My blood was pled over young Scotty many times by those who love us. The Holy Spirit prompted his repentance at the moment of his death on earth. I died for this young man. His sins are covered by my blood and now his slate is pure before you, for I have washed Scott white as snow. Let no blemish be found upon this child”
Suddenly Scott was restored. His mind once in confusion and tormented could see clearly the true reality of eternal life. His beaten down body was healed from a touch of Jesus upon his shoulder. No injury, blemish or physical imperfection could be found. Even Scott’s short stature on earth, which seemed a hindrance, was now a unique quality. Scott was the picture of a fine, handsome, and fully grown mature man. The man he was meant to be on earth had not the tatters of sin and the Devil not torn him a part. There are no imperfections in Heaven or those that will live for eternity in Heaven.
Scott recalled his very short stay on earth and for a moment paused. He looked upon Jesus and asked in passing….
“My Mother, Jesus?”
Jesus replied shortly,
“Your mother is a strong woman of God.”
And it was non-verbally understood that all was well in Heaven and in time all would be well with family on earth till the day we would meet again; When our days on the earth were done.
Memories of life on earth became a vapor, a distant thought, as the reality of the spirit realm, Heaven and eternity took its place in Scott’s heart. The days of earth were but a fleeting painful memory. In Heaven, in eternity, the word ‘TIME’ has little meaning. It is an earthly thing that had passed. This was truly the REAL existence meant by God since time began.
Since time is irrelevant in Heaven it didn’t take Scotty long to meet generations of his own family dating back to Christ and before. Scotty rejoiced with glee as he met those spoke of in the Bible.
After experiencing many of the pleasures and revelations of Heaven, Scotty was then given a position, a job, to serve God Almighty in the capacity in which his personality was best suited. Is he God’s sales person, a warrior for God, does he transport children spirits through dangerous territory? The possibilities are endless since Scotty has such great potential and charm in so many areas. But one day will we see him again and know.
To Jesus: Take care of my son, show him the fatherly love he so longed for on earth. We will miss him. We trust him in your care, Susie (aka Mom).
