"Jesus?" I needed some answers. Maybe I can't see Him, but I might be able to-
I got butterflies. Something about that indescribable voice of His... Oh yeah!
"I wanted to ask You why people are so mean and stupid."
"Genesis Chapter 3."
"In the Bible. There's one on that bookshelf behind you."
"Oh, okay. I'll read it and then get back to You."
"Take your time. I'm not going anywhere."
"...oooOOOOooh so it's Eve's fault?"
"Not the snake itself, but what was in the snake."
"But...if You came and died to save us from him then why are we still mean and stupid?"
"I gave you freedom of choice. I don't want to feel like you're being forced to be with Me. If you were in a relationship with someone you didn't like, wouldn't you be upset?"
"Well...yeah. I guess. But why do people who know You still be mean and stupid?"
"Number one, everybody is human. I hear many people say they know Me, when really, they don't want to, so their thoughts and actions contradict what they have said. Lots of others know My name but what they have heard about Me is distorted, so they don't want to see who I really am. Instead, they disrespect Me because Satan is influencing them. They usually don't realize what they're doing or that they have the choice to get to know Me. Within each person though, each has a different situation that has brought them to where they are."
"Why do You let it happen if it hurts You?"
"I can see everything from the beginning to the end and further. Everything that occurs, big or small, is supposed to happen to bring as many people to Me as possible. Unfortunately, that number still won't be as big as I want it to be, since some will stay subject to Satan's lies until I come back. Once I come back, they'll disappear from existence."
"You're coming back?! WHEN?!"
He laughs softly and I get more butterflies.
"My Father knows, but I don't. He hasn't told Me or the angels. (Matthew 24:36) It will be soon, though. If you look closely, you can see that some of the signs of the end are already happening."
"Revelation Chapter 6. The last book in the Bible."
"Okay, give me a few minutes..."
"I'm in no hurry."
"...I haven't seen any of this stuff."
"If you search around, you'll begin to see it everywhere. There are a few other places that tell signs, like Ezekiel Chapter 33, Verses 30-33."
"But I haven't seen the stars crash to the earth!"
"Not all of the signs have happened yet. All you need to know is that you should live every day like it's your last, since I can't give you the day nor the hour, as scripture says. I know it sounds cliche, but we both know it's better to be prepared than caught off guard. I wouldn't want you to be one of the people hiding when I show My face."
"What's going to happen once You're here?"
"Everyone who wants to come with Me will come. Those who don't will disappear with Satan after everything is finished. So basically, just read the whole book of Revelation. I wouldn't suggest trying to interpret it though, since there's an over-abundance of symbolism and others have placed dates, which can't be done."
"...Am I going to go with You?"
I'm kind of scared now. There's a lot of things I've done that I regret...
"The decision is yours. And don't be afraid. I'm always here to help you. If you truly want to come with Me, I'll know it from your heart. About the things you have done, if you want Me to forget them, all you have to do is ask. I would never leave you to die because of what you have done, no matter how awful your past may seem."
"But what if I do it again?!"
"Ask Me for help to overcome it. It's a choice for you to continue or stop what you're doing. When I forgive you, it's My hope that you mean you don't want to do it again, or at least try to stop. Even if you continue, I don't have any bad feeling towards you. Only towards the person who is using you."
"So...can you forgive me? For everything? And help me stop completely?"
"I forgive you."
I got some more butterflies. And I kind of want to do a happy dance and cry joyfully...Something tells me He's smiling...
"Whenever you find yourself doing it again, think of Me and pull yourself away from what you're doing. Even when you're not doing anything that seems wrong, think of Me and talk to Me so the situation doesn't arrise. Sound alright?"
I can't stop smiling. But I just looked at my clock and realized it's almost elveven at night...
"If you have anymore questions or you just want to talk, I'm always here. I'll let you rest now. You have My heart."
I can feel Him smiling again.
