God's Perspective


From the moment that we learned that Elijah’s heart was no longer beating, we have desired to have God’s perspective on his life.  Even when we arrived home and began to do all the research to try and get some medical answers for this tragedy, we were doing so with a Christian view.   So, the very first place we started, even before leaving the hospital, was diligently searching the Scriptures.  Our Creator’s handbook is where we could find substance, not theory. 

God’s Word will be the source that will eliminate all of the guesswork for you.  It is the Source for answering not just this need but all of our needs as humans.  These are some truths from God's Word.  

  1. 1.  Your child now exists as an eternal soul.  From conception, life not only begins but also is truly endless. (Psalm 139:13)
  2. 2.  Although your child never had the opportunity to develop intellect and speech as we know it, sensitivity, spiritual potential, and unique human capacities were present.  (Jeremiah 1:5, Luke 1:39-44)
  3. 3.  Your child immediately passed into the presence of God.  Their eternal soul went straight to heaven. 
  4. 4.  Your child has a human physical form in heaven and does not exist as an airy ghost-like being floating somewhere in space.  (1 Corinthians 15:39-41)
  5. 5.  You have the opportunity see your child again in Heaven by receiving God's gift of salvation.  (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 5:8, Romans 10:9-10) 
  6. 6.  You will simply and immediately know who your child is in Heaven.  (1 Corinthians 13:9-12) 
  7. 7.  You, if God has rescued you from eternal separation from Him through His Son Jesus Christ, will go to be with child one day. (2 Samuel 11-12)
