Difference between reincarnation and resurrection:

Would you like you son/daughter/husband/wife/father/mother to come back as him/herself, or as someone else?

Whether we sleep (in death) or are awake and walk right through, the destination reached is the same. When traveling by plane some people take out their pillow and fall asleep right away, some fall asleep mid flight, some fall asleep just as the plane starts to land and others are awake on arrival.   But ALL arrive.   'This is your pilot speaking. We'd like you to know we are reaching our destination shortly. The weather is perfect, the skies are sunny. As we begin our decent please stay in your seats with seat belts buckled for your safety as we may hit some turbulence on the way. We thank you for flying Paradise Express.'  

Try to imagine that all of us in Jehovah's organization, who are sticking to it and doing what we are supposed to be doing, and giving our best to Jehovah, whatever that may be. It's like we are all riding along on a train together into the new system.

As we ride along, the journey becomes very tiring for some and so every so often some of them nod off to sleep. When this happens the others on the train, pick them up and carry them back to the sleeper cars and leave them there to rest until we reach our destination.

So it is with the ones we have lost in death: they are right there in Jehovah's memory, so when we reach the station, all we will do is walk back to the sleeper cars and tell them "Here we are, you can get up now!"

When I 'woke up' this morning, I didn't groan or creak As I reached out to the nightstand, my spectacles to seek.   I couldn't feel their framework; and much to my surprise, I saw the room quite clearly when I opened up my eyes!   I noticed when I showered that I moved a little quicker, Then when I went to wash my hair, it seemed a little thicker!   I went to get my dentures to set them on my gums, But there were teeth already there! Now where did they come from?   Although my hearing aids weren't in, I heard the doorbell ring! When I went to answer it, I saw the greatest thing!   Why, there were friends and family all standing around my door. They all looked so happy, we hugged and hugged some more!   The tears were flowing freely, so happy were we all, Then they began to fill me in on things I can't recall.   They tell me that I died way back in 2008 That I've just been asleep since then, On the resurrection to await!   I'm eager for them to tell me about Armageddon's War, How Jesus won the victory, and what happened just before!   We sing Jehovah's praises, we laugh and talk 'til dark, They tell me 'bout the progress to turn the earth back to a park.   'How long from when I died' I ask, did that old system end? 'How far along is the thousand years'? And 'What about my friend?'   They tell me names of some I knew, who died so faithfully, Then they mention briefly some we will never see!   Some names do not surprise me, some names are quite a shock! I'm just so glad that I am here as one of Jesus' flock!  

When I 'woke up' this morning, I didn't groan or creak 

As I reached out to the nightstand, my spectacles to seek. 

I couldn't feel their framework; and much to my surprise, 

I saw the room quite clearly when I opened up my eyes! 

 

I noticed when I showered that I moved a little quicker, 

Then when I went to wash my hair, it seemed a little thicker! 

I went to get my dentures to set them on my gums, 

But there were teeth already there! Now where did they come from?

 

Although my hearing aids weren't in, I heard the doorbell ring! 

When I went to answer it, I saw the greatest thing! 

Why, there were friends and family all standing around my door. 

They all looked so happy, we hugged and hugged some more! 

 

The tears were flowing freely, so happy were we all, 

Then they began to fill me in on things I can't recall. 

They tell me that I died way back in 2008 

That I've just been asleep since then, On the resurrection to await! 

 

I'm eager for them to tell me about Armageddon's War, 

How Jesus won the victory, and what happened just before! 

We sing Jehovah's praises, we laugh and talk 'til dark, 

They tell me 'bout the progress to turn the earth back to a park. 

 

'How long from when I died' I ask, did that old system end? 

'How far along is the thousand years'? And 'What about my friend?' 

They tell me names of some I knew, who died so faithfully, 

Then they mention briefly some we will never see! 

 

Some names do not surprise me, some names are quite a shock! I'm just so glad that I am here as one of Jesus' flock!
