On June 25,2009 these events or stories played out over the news. Two stories hit the news and entertainment cycle concerning the death of two prominent celebs of world wide fame. As the reports came in there was an air of unbelief concerning the timing of the deaths. I believe that God knows how to get our attention regarding the essence of our souls. The way I perceived these events led me to a couple pieces of scripture. These two scriptures can help all of us that are still here preparing for whats to come. Hebrews 9: 27 gives us this piece. It says; “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”No matter where you are and who you are or what you are doing this appointment has already been made. It is written in the book of life concerning every one who is born. The key here is are we ready for the appointment? The only one who is privileged to know the time is God. Lets not get it twisted the hour is arriving. Jesus also refers to our appointment in Luke 12: 20. He blurts out this piece “You fool! This very night they [the messengers of God] will demand your soul of you; and all the things that you have prepared, whose will they be?” There is a tremdous amout of value in this statement. We do not know when that time will come. Are we prepared?
This evening I could not help but be overwhelmed by the two incredible talents that moved into eternity today. Most importantly were they ready for there eternal appointment? As we are bearing witness the appointment is not contingent upon how much money you have , who you know, or how iconic you are it is at the mercy and through the grace of a loving God , whose intentions are not for us to perish. The step into eternity is forever. There is no turning back. I pray that all who come to meet this appointment find the peace of God that passes all of our understanding. He will not put more on us than we can bear. It is up to us to make the choice so that he can bear it for us.
As I close I pray that God will comfort the families of Michael and Farah and that His mercy and grace find them at this difficult time. To all of us still here I pray that we find our purpose and begin the preparation for the transition into God’s eternal kingdom

In Jesus Name
Amen
