Chinese ghost movies and ‘a time to die’ and Bible Truths

I noticed a thought as I read about Jesus raising the dead—how could He? It was the dead person’s time to die, and if it was his time to die, and you raise him, then wouldn’t it spoil/confuse the time of life and death and reincarnation?

I was thinking of the Chinese ghost movies I used to watch a lot during midnight when I was growing up. The people who comes back from life always cause a great confusion in the timeline of life and death and there were always “people” trying to catch them. If you’re a Chinese, you should know the “people” are the “niu tou ma mian”—the cow and the horse-headed two guys. People who died are supposed to go peacefully into a deep sleep, give up their spirit, and get escorted to the Hell by the ‘niu tou ma mian’. Added reasons why dying can be painful. Depending on how much good you do, the levels of Hell decrease. 18 is the worst of all levels. You ask, Heaven? Can’t remember much of it.

SO!

Back to my revelation.

Because of the works Jesus did—raising the dead etc, there COULDN’T POSSIBLY be a “time to die”. Jesus went about raising dead as he wishes. And there is a verse,

John 5:21 “For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.”

So, our time of life is decided by the Father. How much is the Father going to give us? Panic. There is another verse,

Psalm 91:16 “With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

This is God talking. Feeling comforted now? Yes.

Bible truths are amazing.
