Lessons from Heaven

Excerpt from the book “The End of Death” by Admir Serrano

Behind me and to the left was a strong light source, very brilliant and filled with love. I knew it was a person. I called it God for lack of a better term. I could not see it; I felt what seemed like a male presence. He communicated to me, not so much in words but telepathically.

“Why did you hesitate?” He asked.

“Well, I’m kind of young to die.” I replied.

He chuckled. “We have babies die.”

“Well” I said, “there are some things I want to know first.”

“What do you want to know?”

“What is death?” I asked.

“Turn and look to one side.” He said.

As I did, I saw a bad car wreck. Several people had been killed. Out of some of the bodies a spirit came up to progress on. Some who didn’t believe it was possible stayed in their bodies and wouldn’t emerge. I asked if they could be reached.

“Yes,” He replied, “some more quickly than others and some maybe never.”

Death, then, is not believing anything.

“What is hell?” I asked.

“Turn and look again.”

I saw an old woman in a rocking chair determined to sit and rock and worry about children and grandchildren and everything else. Hell is therefore a lack of wisdom and not moving on, choosing not to go any further, sitting there and doing nothing. Hell is not a place.

I asked if there was a Devil or Satan.

“Would God allow that?” He replied. “If I made you God for just a few seconds, what would you do first?”

I knew my first act would be to eliminate any Devil or Satan.

“How do I know right from wrong?”

“Right is helping and being kind. Wrong is not only hurting but not helping when you can.”

We walked as I asked about the universe and reasons for everything. All of these things were shown to me. Then He wondered if I still wanted to return to the physical world.

“I do want to return.” I replied.

“Why?” He asked.

I said I would help my mother whom my father had left with four children and one on the way. God kind of chuckled and asked me for the real reason. I said I would leave the earth a little better than I found it.

“Then you may return with some knowledge of things you have learned, but the rest will be veiled for a time. Live in such way that you will not feel bad when you return here again.”

Evangelización Espírita Infanto-Juvenil

RESPUESTA DE BEZERRA DE MENEZES, ATRAVÉS DEL MÉDIUM JÚLIO CEZAR GRANDI RIBEIRO, A UN CUESTIONÁRIO QUE LE FUE PROPUESTO SOBRE EL RELEVANTE TEMA EN MENCION.

 

4. Cómo los Espíritus sitúan, en el conjunto de las actividades de la Institución Espírita, la tarea de la Evangelización Espírita Infanto-Juvenil?

Se ha enfatizado en lo posible, que la tarea de Evangelización Espírita Infanto-juvenil,  es de la mayor importancia entre las actividades realizadas por las instituciones espíritas, en su amplia y valiosa programación de apoyo a la obra educativa del hombre. Si no fuera por la evangelización, el espiritismo, además de su característica evangélica, perdería su misión de Consolador compitiendo con la diversidad de escuelas religiosas en el mundo que, aunque útiles y oportunas emplean el tiempo absorbiendo posiciones de terminalidad y  dogmatismo.

 

Hay que reconocer que el Espiritismo sin mejoramiento moral, sin la evangelización del hombre, es como un templo sin luz. Ya tuvimos la oportunidad de recordar que una Institución Espírita representa un equipo de Jesús en acción y, como tal, deberá concretizar sus sublimes programas de iluminación de las almas, dedicándose con todo el empeño a la evangelización de los niños y los jóvenes.

 

5. ¿Cuáles son las condiciones esenciales para que una persona pueda llevar a cabo la tarea de Evangelización Espírita Infanto-Juvenil?


En las bases de todo programa educativo el amor es la piedra angular que favorece el entusiasmo y la dedicación, la experiencia y el interés, la devoción y la continuidad, la disciplina y la renovación, ya que con el trato con los niños y jóvenes el esfuerzo renovador debido a la evangelización nunca prescindirá de la fuerza de ejemplificación para el que enseña.

Jesús es el Maestro por excelencia: se nos ofreció por amor, enseñó hasta el último momento, se convirtió en el ejemplo permanente para nuestros corazones y en el paroxismo del dolor, clavado en el madero ignominioso, nos perdonó las deserciones de malos aprendices.
Es justo entonces que el evangelizador deba estudiar y revisar, en lo posible, todas las enseñanzas de la Verdad cultivando los medios de divulgar los caminos hacia la liberación espiritual para que se acerquen aquellos de corazón generoso.
