Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I would like to wish my grandson, A... Happy Birthday! I'm so happy that you're growing... not just older, but taller! Happy Birthday!
If you read LwL recently, you'll know that someone I knew, died. Zachariah Anani.
Hopefully, you did read LwL, lately. If you did, then you know that Zachariah Anani, was a Christian... who converted from Islam.
After I found out that Zachariah had died, I felt bad. Later, I thought about my pastor from years ago, who had brought him into Canada... and wondered if he knew.
So, I called him.
When I spoke with him, I was surprised to hear that he knew Zachariah had died.
At that time, I felt like I was maybe the only person who had not known. Even so, I probably was not.
During our conversation, he let me know that he had heard that Zachariah had been found dead, in his car.
Zachariah's car had been parked in the airport parking lot for the Toronto airport... for two (2) weeks.
Two (2) weeks?!
His dead body had been in his car for two (2) weeks?! Yet, no one found him, there?
To me, this was shocking.
My previous pastor let me know that he had no idea what happened to Zachariah. Or, how he died.
We also discussed the fact that since Zachariah's body had not been treated the way it might have been through a funeral home, it wasn't possible to determine what happened to him.
When our conversation ended, I took some time to think. Then, I prayed.
No, I didn't pray for Zachariah. It was too late to pray for him.
After all, He had become a born-again believer. So, I knew that He would spend eternity in Heaven with our Lord.
But, I wanted to know about what happened to him. And, believed God would reveal truth to me.
Thinking of this, brought to mind, John 8:32, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
Isn't it wonderful that... ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free? To me, it is.
Is it to you?
Will God reveal truth to everyone?
No. But, He will reveal truth to those who belong to Him.
I do. Zachariah did.
Hopefully, so. For if you have trusted in/believed upon our Lord, Jesus Christ... and became a born-again Christian, then God will reveal truth to you.
For this, I am thankful. And, always will be.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
