This was a lesson title taught by SG Norris at ABI. I loved (and feared) SG and appreciated him immensely, but as the years have gone by and my losses have been many, I am realizing the arrogance of any of us to proclaim to know with any certainty ‘where are the dead’. Just as life is in God’s control –we can’t create it or even change it much– so death and the dead are also in God’s control.
I choose to believe a loving, omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent God whose mercy endureth forever, will not leave ANY of us nor forsake us even through our final journey. God is LOVE. I am forever thankful that we are in His hands and not in the hands of those on earth who would decide our destiny based on their limited, finite, self righteous understanding. There is shelter in His arms.
