Regrets and Rewards in 100 years from now by Prophet Ade Ologbonyo



100 YEARS FROM NOW !!!

In the year 2119, in 100 years from now, virtually every single reader of this piece will be underground, our bodies must have become part of the soil. During that time, our fate in respect to paradise or hell would have been made known to us.



Meanwhile above the soil, our houses that were left behind would have become homes for others or demolished for better structures. Our clothes would have become rags for others and replaced by more recent trends.


Our cars will be on display as historical artifacts by others, also replaced by more advanced technology.



As for us, we will be, for the most part, never thought about by anyone again. Except you make good impact. How often do you think about your great grandfather? How often does your great grandmother cross your mind?


Our presence here on earth today, that presence that we make so much noise about and shed so many tears for, was preceded by countless generations before us and shall be followed by countless generations after us.



Every generation that passes through this world barely finds the time to take a glance at the world before needing to bid it farewell and handing over the baton, having not fulfilled even a fraction of ones ambition. Our lives are, in reality, far shorter than we imagine.



In 2119, every one of us will realise from within the grave just how worthless this world actually was, and how trivial those dreams were, that centred on it. Vanity!



In 2119, every one of us will be wishing that we had dedicated our lives to great matters of GOD, and devoted ourselves to doing good deeds, particularly those that continue to benefit us after our death.



In 2119, many reading this piece will be screaming out, but in vain:



“My Lord return me! So that I may do good in that which I have left behind ..”


The response to this request, however, shall be:   “No!  and behind them is now a barrier until the Day they are resurrected."


In 2119, many will be in regret, saying:  “I wish that I had prepared for my life.”



Let us become righteous, for surely what happened to those we talk of, heard of and read of will surely happen to us.



Those houses, cars, wealth and whatever you are pursuing now, may not be useful for your children for it must have become obsolete then for their generations. They will call it "old school”.



WE WILL ALL DIE SOMEDAY!
Always think about this, " And as it is appointed unto man once to die, but after this the judgement "(Heb 9:27). We will all die someday Including me, and especially you the reader of this piece. Let's put more of our time, money and energy in serving God and helping humanity. "For we brought nothing into this world and it is certain we can carry nothing out"(1 Timothy 6:7).

"Naked came I out of my mother's womb and naked I will depart "(Job1:27)



Moses was not the only Prophet of his generation, he had died since over 6000 years ago but his name is still ringing in our hearing as if he is still with us. Because of the way he spent the little time giving to him then. He was just given 120 yrs. He was frustrated but not relenting, he was abused but never gave up, he was provoked and physically challenged by Aaron, Miriam, Korah, Dathan, Abiram but he kept on keeping on until they all finished their short cake I called "time". What about Deborah, Dorcas, Tabitha, Apostle Paul, Awolowo, Efunsetan Aniwura, Nnamdi Azikwe, Ojukwu, Tafawa Balewa, Ahmadu Bello etc.



What will you be remembered for? Think about this and spend your little time giving to you now very well to affect humanity positively, so as to be remembered like those you are referring to as heroes/heroines of their generation. If we could be remembering those that have died since 6000 yrs ago, will you be remembered for good/bad in the next 100yrs or totally forgotten?
All is vanity! (Eccl 2:4-11,17-19)
