Two thieves had stolen things, and they felt that the best place to share their booty was in the graveyard since it was quiet and calm at night. When they reached there, they hid themselves in the bush, and one of them heard a voice. There were two people sharing things in the graveyard. His partner explained that “c’est le Diable et Dieu qui partagent les morts” (it is God and the Devil sharing the dead). They listened and listened attentively as the sharing continued. Un pour moi, un pour toi (One for me, one for you). One for me, one for you and one for me, one for you. It went on and on like that for about 15 minutes then one of the sharers said “je prend ceux deux ci, et tu prends les trois autres.” It means; I take these two, and you take those other three. The guys in the bush thought that he was referring to them, so you make your guess. They ran helter-skelter. The question now is who do you think were sharing things in the graveyard? If it happened that you died today, and God and the devil were to share the dead, who do you think will own you? You cannot be unclaimed, for one of them must take you.
Many people are waiting for the end of the world, but the end of the world will come at anytime for everyone. If you die today, your world has come to an end, and you will only be waiting for the Judgment Day. If you do not die today, then you will wait till Jesus comes back and end this world. No matter when and how you die, your soul will be up for division. It must be owned by one person: either God or the Devil.
The Devil is known to own the souls of wicked people where he lives with them in hell and torment their souls day and night. There will be wailing and gnashing of the teeth. Your soul will no more die, and the fire is never quenched. It is called eternal damnation. If you are killig people or helping others to kill people, your soul will go to the Devil. If yo are doing bad things, the Devil will pick your soul. If you are so selfsih like the guy below, then the devil will own your soul.
On the other hand, God takes only godly people with him to heaven. So we may want to ask what godliness is then. Godliness is to obey God’s word. Before Jesus left for heaven, he asked all of us to do two things: Love God with all our being and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. So are we loving God or are we loving the things of the world? He that loves the things of the world makes himself /herself an enemy of God. If you become an enemy of God, God will not take your soul to heaven. There will be no more tears or sorrow; it is joy and joy everyday of eternity. There will not be any sickness there; no divorce, no death, and no politics. If you give your life to Christ first so that whatever good deeds you do he will sanctify them, your soul will go to God. If you see someone suffering and you help them, your soul will be picked by God. If you give food to those who are hungry, clothes to those who are naked, and health to those who are sick, God will pick your soul.
Until then, I want God to be the owner of my soul on the last day.
