I decided to use one last bridge and share my Pinterest guardian angel board as well, even though we may highlight some others from it. There are many bridges and many other guardian angels to get to. The Hebrew word for bridge is geshur, like it sounds. It is from a rarely used word meaning ” to join. ”
You will surely forget your trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by. Job 11:16
What a wonderful verse, hence the phrase about the past, water under the bridge. Here are a few other examples. Isaiah 35:8 speaks of a highway to be called the Way of Holiness, though it is more of a road the implication is to join the holy back to God and the fools can’t go. Kind of like the straight and narrow.
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,…..1 Timothy 2:5, also implies a bridge to heaven and earth in the form of Christ. His birth, death and resurrection, put mankind back in good standing with the Father, as long as they accept Him as Lord. His constant intercession is bridging our prayer life and daily walk with Him.
The verse in Luke 16:26, gives a different illustratration of paradise and hell in the story of Lazarus. And besides, there is a great chasm separating us. ” No one can cross over to you from here, and no one can cross over to us from there. ”
Obviously there was a gaping separation between the so called bosom of Abraham and hell where the rich man ended up, while he could see Lazarus, the beggar, he could not cross to paradise. And would it not be even more torment to be able to see paradise and not go there?
Jesus took the people from paradise with Him, so now it is just hell, and they probably can still see into heaven. But as for heaven, it would not be heaven to see people in torment. God really is good and He longs to bridge gaps in our lives.
We should take a moment to think that over. If nothing separates us from the love of God, and it doesn’t unless we choose to separate ourselves or someone chooses to separated from us, literally or in some other way. Why not pray about it and ask God how to bridge the gap or is it time to let go.
Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction? Amos 3:3
And if you don’t know Him as Lord, please accept His love today and you’ll be assured of going to heaven, you may not always have time to cross that bridge when we come to it. His peace, Rebecca Jones.
