And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. Daniel 7:14,27
12And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
13And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
14And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
15And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
16And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
17And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
19And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
20And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
21And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
22But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
23And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
24For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
25Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.
26And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
27And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
28And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
29And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
30But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
31And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
32It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found. Luke 15:11-32
The most necessary and longest voyage is the voyage that comes out of the darkness and goes to the Light, where is the Home and the Homeland of Hope for those who believe in Christ, where again we will be called Children of God rescued and saved by The Lord Jesus.
It is a voyage impossible to do without the mercy, protection, and guidance of The Lord Jesus; and for this, we must have faith alone in Him. And He himself is Who decides the moment for who will do it, although it is offered to all, without differentiation.
No preparation is necessary, the Lord knows the conditions of each one and will provide what is necessary individually because He Himself is the Principle, the Way, and the End. Therefore, let us be sure that we will not do it alone, nor will we be abandoned during the voyage because we have been bought by Him for it; and so we will also join the Myriads of Myriads of His Army who also have traveled the same Way to the Fatherland.
In this voyage, we will understand how transient our existence is here on earth and in this body; we will learn to be honest with each other, to forgive and to love, to renounce evil — the absence of Light and the place of darkness — and to understand that evil is contrary to our happiness and our peace; and though it is under His dominion, it is contrary to all that The Lord God has created; and only those who refuse to accept His Truth and His Justice they will suffer it. We will learn the nobility of desiring and be practicing only the Good, and loving the Love, respecting the things of God, and understanding His love and His mercy with all.
We must gather all our strength to persevere in the Way to the end, the arrival; and in the course of the voyage, if possible, do not stop, do not doubt, do not look back, do not complain, and keep the look, mind, and heart fixed on the goal, with the objective of reaching The Lord’s Home, before His Presence; where we rest will be.
For those who can understand, know that this is the reason for life.
