'Think not that a long period intervenes between the instant of death and the eternity of glory. When the eyes close on earth they open in heaven. The horses of fire are not an instant on the road.' [2 Kings 2:11; Acts 6:8-8:1] Excerpt from Charles H. Spurgeon, 'Mornings and Evenings Devotions,  audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Continuing my friends, our series on 'death', 'dying'; 'mortality or immortality'; and suicide', begun February 2, 2019, let us see another 'devotion', this time with additional cross reference Scriptures-SMQ, and words from the Holy Bible with Comments from Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
Again, is Charles H. Spurgeon a 'liar', 'crazy' or a 'fool'?
Devotions from Morning and Evening: Daily Readings of Charles Haddon Spurgeon 
“That through death he might destroy him that had the power of death.”
Hebrews 2:14 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
'O child of God, death hath lost its sting, because the devil’s power over it is destroyed. [1 Corinthians 15:55] Then cease to fear dying. Ask grace from God the Holy Ghost, that by an intimate knowledge and a firm belief of thy Redeemer’s death, thou mayst be strengthened for that dread hour. Living near the cross of Calvary thou mayst think of death with pleasure, and welcome it when it comes with intense delight.
[Notice ever so carefully, the 'condition precedent' to this 'glorious plan and expectation' - it is 'O, child of God'. Do you belong to God as 'His Child through salvation in and only through, Jesus Christ?' John 3:15-16. Otherwise, see John 3:36. And, wait for the next posts on February 16, 23, 2019 for more on one who dies - 'not as a 'child of God'. Oh, my, there is a drastic and terrible - 'difference'. ]
'It is sweet to die in the Lord: it is a covenant-blessing to sleep in Jesus. Death is no longer banishment, it is a return from exile, a going home to the many mansions where the loved ones already dwell. [John 14:2] The distance between glorified spirits in heaven and militant saints on earth seems great; but it is not so. We are not far from home--a moment will bring us there. [1 Corinthians 15:52; 2 Corinthians 5:8] The sail is spread; the soul is launched upon the deep. How long will be its voyage? How many wearying winds must beat upon the sail ere it shall be reefed in the port of peace? How long shall that soul be tossed upon the waves before it comes to that sea which knows no storm?
Listen to the answer, “Absent from the body, present with the Lord.” [2 Corinthians 5:8] Yon ship has just departed, but it is already at its haven. It did but spread its sail and it was there. Like that ship of old, upon the Lake of Galilee, a storm had tossed it, but Jesus said, “Peace, be still,” and immediately it came to land.' [Matthew 8:23-27; Mark 4:39]
'Think not that a long period intervenes between the instant of death and the eternity of glory. When the eyes close on earth they open in heaven. The horses of fire are not an instant on the road. [2 Kings 2:11]
Then, O child of God, what is there for thee to fear in death, seeing that through the death of thy Lord its curse and sting are destroyed? [1 Corinthians 15:55] and now it is but a Jacob’s ladder whose foot is in the dark grave, but its top reaches to glory everlasting.'
[Genesis Chapter 28, on Jacob's ladder; See also Acts 6:8-8:1, the 'stoning of Stephen'. On the 'Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, see and study, such as Matthew 27:27-44; Mark 15:16-32; Luke 23:26-43 and John 19:16-27 ] Amen. Amen. Our next post shall post on Saturday, February 16, 2019, when we will see what Jesus Christ had to say about 'mortality' or, 'immortality'. Please return, but, remember the question you are to ask yourself at the end of your study in this post:
Now, is Charles H. Spurgeon a 'liar', 'crazy' or, a 'fool'? Is there 'life after mortal death'? Be ever so certain of your answer and the decision you have made with respect to - your eternal future - destination, while you are still alive. For, there is a 'day of reckoning' to come. [2 Corinthians 5:10] Amen. Amen.
