1. Heaven is a much better place than Avatar

Just the other day I watched the movie Avatar. I don't know if you watched it, but if you didn't, in short it is about another world that exist. The 'people' if you can call them that, that live there is different than we are. Not only do they look different, but none of them have any disabilities. The one human that goes into their world is actually lame and cannot walk, but when he goes into their world, he suddenly can walk and even run. In their world he is free from the bondage of his wheelchair.

Also in their world they have divine forces that help them in their daily life. They can connect to it by linking their hair to this celestial energy. They are then united with their 'gods' who can help them in danger. It can also help them with making life decisions and receiving advice from their ancestors.

Now after the movie Avatar was released I heard that people fell into what they called, the Avatar Blues. People started feeling depressed and lonely and they started longing for this world that doesn't exist. That was very strange to me and I didn't understand why they felt that way, until I watched the movie myself and then I understood. People long for a place where they can be without any disabilities, a world where they can connect with a celestial being and receive advice from it, a world where they can belong. We all yearn for a better place and better bodies to cope with the demands of this life. Especially if we look at the suffering and the injustice all around us and experience the intense pressure to cope in this money hungry world of ours. We cannot help but wish for a way out of all of this! Our human bodies are too fragile to cope with all the stress. Stress is literally killing us, we need a way out.

Lucky for us there is a way out. There is a better place. A much better place that will make Avatar look like a joke! In this new place we will have brand new bodies that will be so much better and so much stronger than we can ever dream of. A new world is awaiting each of us. A world where there will be no more sorrow, no more pain and no more pressure. A world without the pressure of performing, being the best and earning the most.  A world where people won't judge/admire you by the way you look. A world where we can life forever and enjoy the presence of our almighty God. Yes, heaven is awaiting us.

We need not feel depressed or lonely, our time here in earth is so very short compared to eternity in heaven.  Heaven will be a place where all our dreams will come true, a place where we can soar higher than eagles. And the best part is that the Lord wants us all to be there. He wants us to be with Him and to enjoy Paradise which He created for us. He longs for us to come and drink of the living water that will refresh us within and that will keep us revived and exhilarated for all eternity to come.

"And the angel showed me a pure river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and the Lamb, coursing down the center of the main street." Revelations 22:1,2.

"The Spirit and the bride say, 'Come.' Let each one who hears them say, 'Come.' Let the thirsty ones come - anyone who wants to. Let them come and drink the water of life without charge." Revelations 22:17.

Thank you God that You created heaven for all of us to look forward to. Thank you that You loved us enough to grant us access to Your Kingdom. We look forward to being with You. Amen.
