The Message-Zack’s 5th Heavenly Anniversary, July 2020 

5 Feb. 1980-2 July 2015

When Zack’s heart quit beating that 2 July 2015 evening, his soul immediately left his body and rose above the clouds through the Earth’s atmosphere on his way to heaven.

Based on God’s Word, I imagine Zack seeing Jesus in all of His Glory, shining brighter than the sun. With His arms open wide, Jesus welcomed Zack and said something like this:

My child Zack, how happy I am of you for believing in Me and accepting Me as your Lord and Savior. Though you never saw me with your eyes, you believed in me and loved Me. It took faith to do that. You were chosen and saved so you could be with Me forever. Come with Me to My Father’s house, for as I promised, if anyone loves Me he will keep My Word and My Father will love him and We will come to him and make Our home with him.

I have promised you, and all believers, that I go and prepare a place for you, and this place, heaven, is for you Zack because, you believed in Me. Heaven is the place I have prepared for those who had the faith to believe My Word and follow My will, though you fell short sometimes.

It is impossible for you or another human to be perfected while you are on the earth. But I have removed your sins as far as the east is to the west. Now I have perfected all things concerning you, to include your body. I have given you a new glorified body free of sickness and disease. Your body Zack is an immortal body. You will be with Me forever, for I am your God. I will wipe away every tear from your eyes, there shall be no more death, sorrow or pain. Goodness shall follow you, I will see to it, for I have unconditional love for you.

I am so glad you are here, Zack. I chose you before the foundation of the world. I came to Earth for you, lived and died for you, forgave your sins when you believed in Me, I claimed you as My own. Welcome to the house of God.

On earth, you went through many trials, testing the genuineness of your faith, which is more precious than gold. As gold goes into the fire to get rid of impurities, so did your faith, as it was being tested. Though tested by fire, you were found to praise, honor and glorify Me. Though your eyes had never seen Me, you loved Me. Come, let us rejoice that your name is in the Book of Life. Well done Zack, good and faithful servant. Know that I love you with an everlasting love. Come, I have prepared a table for you and your cup runs over.

And the Angels cried out Holy is the Lord. Hallelujah!!!

It’s been 5 years since my son Zachary Ian Hawkins was called home to be with the Lord. My love for Zack is timeless and continues on forever in my heart. Time passes but love and the memories never do.

The time will come, when you find yourself facing the death of a loved one. Know that God is with you. He is always close to the brokenhearted. Look to Jesus for comfort, strength and healing.

Zack is with Jesus and it brings me much comfort and peace. The Sovereign Lord could have healed him on this side of heaven, but He didn’t. Zack’s days, as well as ours, are numbered before we are ever born. The Lord knows the end from the beginning. Zack doesn’t have a brain tumor anymore, rather he is healed and strong, doing the Father’s work in heaven.

Psalm 139:15-16 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in secret, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body all my days were written in your book and ordained for me before one of them came to be.

Isaiah 46:10 I declare the end from the beginning, and ancient times from what is still to come. I say, my purpose will stand, and all my good pleasure I will accomplish.

I have lived through the past 5 years leaning heavily on the Lord and His Scriptures. He has comforted and strengthened me, healed my broken heart and bound up all my wounds. Jesus has rescued me from the pit of despair and loss. As He lifted me up and out of the pit, He restored my soul. And He will do it for you as well.

He is my Savior in everything, life, death, sickness or health, the good and the bad. He never leaves me and if you follow Him He will never leave you. I fail Him, my service is lacking, and I have wasted so much time on temporary, not eternal things. My shortcomings are many. Only what is done for Christ will last. The rest is burned up in the fire. Thank God, I know the Lord will perfect all things concerning me when I come to Him, because, He is my Savior and I am His beloved.

Psalm 138:8 The Lord will perfect that which concerns me. All my interests are safe in the Lord’s hands.

Matthew 5:4… Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up all their wounds.

Psalm 24:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Jesus died so that Zack and all of us who will believe, could have forgiveness of sins and live forever in heaven with Him. He also wants us to be His disciples on earth, telling others about His love, grace and mercy, His goodness and long suffering. He is honored and glorified when we tell others of Him and who He is and the wonderful things He has done.

Jesus said: If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.

So, beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which tried you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice, for if you were reproached for the name of Jesus, blessed are you, for the Spirit of God rests upon you and through you, He is glorified.

When sorrow comes I keep my eyes on Jesus and remember where and with whom Zack is right now. Because of the promise of heaven we can move forward and live, knowing that when the Lord calls us home we will be with the Lord and our loved ones who have gone ahead of us.

Luke 10:20 …. rejoice that your names are written in heaven.

If God were addressing you right now, He would tell you that Jesus is His beloved Son, in whom He is well pleased. He shall be known as the King of all Kings and the Lord of all Lords. He will be highly exalted and His Name is above every name. At the sound of His Name, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

If you don’t know Jesus as your Savior, would you ask Him to be your Lord and Savior? He will forgive you of all of your sins. Though your sins be as scarlet He will wash you whiter than snow.

Satan wants to destroy you, to kill you. Jesus wants to rescue you, to save you, to give you eternal life with Him. Just ask Him to come into your heart.

Jesus came to give us a better abundant life while on the earth and in eternity. Choose Jesus.

John 10:10 The thief comes to steal, kill and to destroy. I am come so you may have life and have it more abundantly.

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come.

God Bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
