“Oh Death Where Is Thy Sting”

Posted by: admin on Sat, Nov 18, 2017

We win over death this is my thoughts as I have lived life for 70 years now.

“Oh Death Where Is Thy Sting”
by Chaplain Jimmie W. Warren

( Friends this is a new article that came over me to write right away not edited so forgive any errors as I rushed to get this out for some who needs this message,hear it for it has been an unguent message for you!)

" The sting of death is sin (1 Corinthians 15:56), in Yeshua /Jesus ,death has lost its sting!“

" He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification." .(Romans 4:25
 
Therefore, we can now live confidently without any fear of dying or death its self, as we should know for sure that when we pass from this life, our lives continue eternally with our loving Father God YAHWEH and his only begotten son YESHUA / JESUS! AMEN!

The first time I heard about someone dying was when a friend of my dad passed away. My Dad was listening to the radio back in the early years of the 1950's, I recalled it was snowing all around us and very cold in St. Louis and it was New Years of 1953, Dad and my mom and  sometimes would take me out to our car to listen to a radio show called “The Grand Old Opery” coming live from Nashville Tennessee,

The reason we would go out to our car was because house radio’s could not pick up the signal but car radios could with their antenna you see the little radio stations back then were only maybe 10,000 watts so, car antennas would boost the signal all the way up to St Louis .People could hear country music ever where and everyone seemed to love at least in my family good country Music.

I was only ,lets see about age 5 going on 6 years old anyway back to the story I was excited to go out because it was a special family event to hear all the famous people singing and playing the music coming from Nashville, as we dashed back n forth in the cold winter someone came on to stop the show which never happened to the Opery it just wasn't’t done so we knew something bad was about to be said so, Dad turned the sound up because the snow storm was making the radio go in and out. Everything was quite for what seemed like a long time someone in the back ground was crying I could hear them...then the man at the MIC announced that Hank Williams had passed away at the age of only 37 years old everything went quite again then you could hear crying and yelps going on because Hank Williams was the Top Singer of his time.

 My dad loved this guys music maybe more than most people because Dad and Mom both played and sang the same kind of music Hank was like part of our family dad had big tears running down his cheeks maybe because his mother had just died a month ago but this sudden loss hit everyone hard that was in country music it was like what I felt like later when President Kennedy died with the top of his head blown away right in front while watching T.V.or when his brother Bobby was killed,I could see in his eyes as he lay on that kitchen floor the look of death that is the way I felt when I was older must be how my dad and mom and thousands felt on that cold Jan 1953! Have you ever felt the loss of a loved one lately?

 Being only 6 years old I didn't understand I took my moms hand when I turned and saw her tearing up and crying. She took me back to our warm house but dad stayed out in our old car listening for the details of how and why someone so young could have died?

 Maybe dad hurt more because of playing music or being close to the same age ,lets see dad would have been about the same age so that would make you stop and think would it not? I don’t know but I saw how death effects people at my early age that cold  cold  night back on Jan 1953.

A very short time earlier on December 1952 dad’s mother Julia Warren died and man did my dad take it hard, he cried for days. I was taking it all in but didn't understand what death ways all about or why it happened?

I bet if you all stop and think for awhile you will be amazed at how many people have died around you? We are boomed barded by TV. shows, computers, Radio ,phone messages with news of real people dying everyday and our minds are numbed by it, we don’t react anymore to it because it is just part of our everyday life now!

Today when we hear about someone famous dying we say or think who is next as it seems like 3 famous people die around the same time at least in the same month? Anyway back to the story here I am almost 6 years old and have heard of 2 people I know that has effected my family and with-out knowing it, it has effected me also, When Hank Williams had a big old funeral many famous singers came and sang his songs to pay respect to him songs like “I Saw the Light”,”Be on The Sun set”,‘ it was a very sad day old Hank was like our family I thought he was a uncle or something later on I found out he was not family but everyone took his death just as hard as my grandma Julia’s death.

 Four or five years later my grand-father  Elijah E. Warren died and his death was taken really hard as he passed away on our couch while we were all at the movies watching a new “JESSE JAMES”movie in which Robert Wagner and Jeffery Hunter played the famous brothers. Grand-Father was living with us for awhile he was sleeping on our big davenport in our living room dad had asked Grand-Pa to go with the family to have a fun night out but grand-pa said he didn't’t feel good and for us all go out and have fun he would be alright so we left him to go to the movie.

At the movie “ The Real Life and Times of JESSE JAMES” Robert Wagner ruined the movie about a hero of Missouri now take the earlier movie with Tyrone Power and Henry Fonda, that was a great movie telling about the times the James brothers and what made them rob trains and banks around our state. 

When the show ended we headed home, we stopped by to grab a bag or two of White Castle hamburgers to share with grand-pa Warren when we work him up to eat with us but when we got back home something was wrong grand-pa didn't’t answer the door we knocked and knock I felt something go through me a cold like wind felt like it was all around us.

The place we lived had our bath room out in the hall way all the door had these little windows so to open for a breeze to come through but the cold I felt was different our bath room had a sealed off door that went to our living room the front door was locked and we had not taken the key because grand-pa was there to open it for us when we came home. 

After many knocks  dad said one of us would have to go through the small window drop down and come and open the door. I was a little to big to make it so that left my little brother Nick. We boosted him up and he crawled through and we heard him drop, soon he opened the door I said wake up grand-pas we have hot “WHITE CASTLE BURGER to eat, he did ‘not answer Dad rolled Grand-pa over he still had his eyes open one green and the other blue looking right at me but no one home if you know what I mean? 

Grand-pa had a heart attack while he was sleeping. I wanted to tell grand-pa all about the movie, how it was the first time I ever seen someone killed it was just a movie but the way they had that coward  Bob Ford shot Jesse James in the back of his head it was so real yet here was my poor grand-pa laying on our couch dead for real it was terrible ,I will always remember the look on grandpas face it was like he looked right through me and I cried and said poor grand pa. It was a weird  thing knowing grandpa was dead but his body was still laying on our couch as we all waited for someone to come and take the body away. We were both told not to look at grandpa my brother Nicky was in shock as he was the first person to see grandpa just laying with is eyes open just laying there yet we knew his soul was not in his body anymore.

 Soon the police came asking questions then the fire department showed up they covered grandpa warren with a sheet the they Ambulance guys showed up to take grandpa to the hospital morgue. it was Nicky’s first experience with someone dead.

While at grandpa Warrens funeral I was made to go up and kiss grandpa good bye I did not like that so afterwards I went wondering around the viewing rooms there I saw a young girls body in a small blue coffin she had golden hair and looked so pretty she was about my age, she looked like a girl I had meet at a horse riding ranch where we went a few times so I could ride my favorite horse named Jackie.

There was this one day where I had to wait to ride my horse because he was being hooked up to a buggy so this little blond headed girl could buggy ride my horse I was so and then the little girl ask me if I wanted to ride with her hum I thought maybe –it took me a few  minutes then I said OK and you know what it was fun so I said maybe next week we could do it again?

 I thought this could be the same girl I don’t know then her mom n dad came into the room, the mother had been crying her eyes were all red and he make up was running down her face, she was in a lot of grief so I turned my eyes toward the little girl and asked how she had died? Her mom said she was thrown off her horse her neck was broken then I cried. Her Father asked if I went to school with his little girl or how I knew her I said I didn't’t know her for sure she looked like the girl I had ridden with a few week ago but I was here for my grand-fathers funeral and just wondered into this room wondering how such a pretty girl like her could be dead? I did not mean to say that out loud but the mother started to cry loud and the father asked me to leave!

That little girl reminded me that death was all around all the time and could take anyone at any time no matter the age or what power anyone has or what? I wonder where does all the people go after the spirit leaves their bodies than what?? It was just a short time later that my uncle Joe died he was in accident died at age 26 or 27 it was just about a month ago that my uncle Joe bought life insurance from me for $1.00 a month for I think $10,000 life now here he was gone. We bought uncle Joe’s old 1952 Chevy because it help give aunt Bert some money and dad wanted to leave to go to Alaska for a pipeline that was being built and it would be a long time job.

 School was out I had just finished 8th grade so off we went out old highway 66 to California then up to Canada right on up to Alaska to live for years. When we got to northern Ca. We stopped to visit my moms cousin Walter who after a few days visit told my dad he could get a job in CA that paid as much as the Alaska job and we could all stay together as a family there in hot Livermore ,it was the summer of 1962. Marilyn Monroe had just died man she was so pretty and so young 39 years old now she was gone.

Then in October 1962 there was the Cuban Missile Crises and we thought we are all going to die, I was only 15 and I was going to die all those drills about drop and cover now we are all facing death I was not ready, but we had to face it because Russia and the USA were ready to fire their nukes. Maybe this is the time I get to see Jesus and ask all the questions I had of why people had to suffer and die?

 You should have seen the  look on my dads face dad said it all the day after President Kennedy said “ if an missile hit anywhere in North America our Nukes would fly to Russia first.” Dad said we are all going to be baptized because we were all going to be with Jesus, we went to the Pentecostal Church of Jesus Christ and were baptized the very next day. Man here I am just turning 15 and my life was over I was missing out on life no wife no kids retiring no we were all going to be boomed out of existence  with an A-tom boom??  (1 Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

When everything turned out O.K... between Russia and us , I forgot about death and went back to being a teenager in high school with all those girl Oh man I was in heaven! Then on Nov. 22nd 1963  I got out of school early was watching as the world turns with my mom when “ flash news from Dallas Texas”  I saw the President Kennedy be shot in the head and the 3 days for his funeral what a sad day that was. Then we got a call my mom’s sister Bertha  was in a car wreck and had no chance to make it? We piled into our new 1964 Ford Wagon and headed to St. Louis ,we stopped during the moment of silence for Kennedy while along the hi-way back to Mo. 

 We got in to aunt Bert’s home on Nov 25th1963  my mom went to the hospital and stayed day and night ,she did this for about 3 days until they told us aunt Bert was going to recover and be alright, Now I was concentrating on the death of President Kennedy’s death which happened while most of America watched in horror from live TV. in there own homes nothing and I mean nothing like a President being assignation  right in front of our own eyes, wow, it has been over 50 years and it sometime seems like yesterday! Death won on November 22 1963 and most of us who are honest will say KENNEDY DYING was like losing a part of each of our family’s own family member! 

After this my mind was reeling with first Malcolm X killed in church while preaching, then Martin Luther King, then came the last straw for me when I watched once more as BOBBY KENNEDY, was shot in the head and again live on TV. never mind the hundreds of coffins shown on live TV as we all set and eat dinner watching death taking thousands of young men in a place called Vietnam. I was thinking I am going to graduate in June 1966 and I had already signed my life away to the Army and figured that I was Going to probably going to die over there but a twist came on a cold day in December 1965 as I was walking home from the dentist office with my mom (see the full story in my article” Honey the day my mother died)”

I had been trying to forget about death using Booze and smoking Mary Jane going out every night having sex all I could do to get away from death but on this day DEC 20 1965 another young man driving his car to fast and not watching what he was doing hit me and my mother which killed my sweet mother and put me almost dead death was right at my door! I was being loaded into the ambulance with my mom who looked at peace I asked 

HOW IS MY MOM DOING THE GUY WAS TRYING TO BE NICE BY SAYING SHE WILL BE ALRIGHT JUST LAY BACK WE WILL TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOU WHILE THEY RACED US TO THE e r ROOM BUT DEATH WAS RIDING WITH US FOR I HEARD A VOICE CLEAR AS A BELL TELLING ME “DON’T BE AFRAID YOUR MOTHER IS GONE BUT IT IS ALRIGHT BE CALM” I ASKED THE AMBULANCE GUY ONCE AGAIN AND HE SAID “YOUR MOM WILL BE ALRIGHT SEE THEY ARE WORKING ON HER FIRST, I LOOKED OVER TO MY RIGHT AND MOM WAS LAYING ON A GURNEY LIKE ME WITH THREE OR FOUR PEOPLE WORKING AS FAST AS THEY COULD THEN I HEARD A VOICE ASKING IF THEY NEW WHO OUR DOCTOR WAS I SAID YOU ARE FOR IT WAS THE DOCTOR WHO HAD taken Kidney Stones out of me just a few weeks ago he looked closer at me and recognized who I was and went back to work on my mom while someone was cutting off my close that is when I felt my leg hurt I looked down my left knee was as big as a tree truck but it was the cut on my right knee that was hurting.

 Once again a voice came to me there was color balls floating all around me there was color lights and it felt like I was in WARM CLOUD WHERE the voice was coming from I felt at ease as he said it will be alright your mother is gone but it will be alright” a short time later I awoke with someone screaming in pain I asked the nurse who it was in the room with me screaming a another young man who had been in a car wreck and this nurse knew my mom had just died so she had me moved to a private room to be away from the guy who was hurting.

As I lay there wondering why death had taken my mother who was a good person while I who was doing all kinds of wrongs was still alive?? This question bugged me a long time it was then my dad looked at me but I spoke first I know dad mom is gone”.He asked me who told me because he was mad for he wanted to be the one to tell me mom was dead. I told him about the voice who had come to me three different time telling each time It will be alright your mom is gone but it will be alright” I was at ease.

 I have not been afraid of death since all these things that had happened I was just afraid of the hurt? How many people do you know who have died? How much time do you have before death comes your way?
 

here is a life line 0 __10__20__30__40__50___60___X 70___80___90--------100 now put an X where your age is right now,OK How many years are left before you die?? Also remember any time God can call you home ! Now don't you think,maybe I should get ready to meet my maker?

Are you ready for your turn with death? The bible tells us that “it is appointed once for man to die,” (Hebrews 9:27) then I ask when, why, what for, I just did not get it?  Just why did my mom have to die? I was the bad one in my family while she believed in Jesus and prayed for others all the time?? 

So many more of people I knew and loved like my own dad who passed on march of 1977 then my only brother who took his own life on Aug 2003 and my dear friends like Mike Webb who was like a brother from another mother, then another brother named John Rabe who was very, very close to me, he died March 28 2016 age 50 years old,so many gone with life just moving on with me now going on 70 years old with death nearer than ever??

Yes I have look at death eye to eye one day at work A man was holding on to his wife in the middle of the street while the cops set up all around this guy trying to get him to let his wife go. I went out into the street to get a better look but that was a mistake because I hear the guy say "if I cannot have her no one can and he stuck a steak knife right into her throat she yelped and said Momma I was 2 feet away and saw in her eyes death and I felt her go as they loaded her into the ambulance to rush her off to the hospital but I knew she was dead!
 
Are you ready to meet your maker friends? 

Remember Boston or the worse during 9/11 when over 3,000 people died ,did it open your eyes , are you really aware that at any time or any minute your number is up? Oh my friends I tell you,  get ready to meet Jesus Christ! Your time is almost here to be judged for all you do! I hope you are readying and reading your bible every other day and praying all the time to be ready? Do you know what your bible even says about death? (1 Peter 1:3) “ Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”

Get yourself ready to answer to your Lord for what you have done in this life? For CHRIST is coming soon so get ready to see him and be judged by him.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR ALL OF US JESUS OVER CAME DEATH and if you truly believe in him then you to will come back from death to live forever and ever! Amen!  I hope this article has helped you to look at death in a different way and over come death thru our Lord Yeshus Messiah so be ready to say(1 Corinthians 15:55) O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?  Yes our victory It is in the return of our Lord Yeshua Messiah. Amen!

This is your brother through the Lord Jesus telling you to hold on”
  EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT DON’T BE AFRAID IT WILL BE ALRIGHT
Revelation 21: “ And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.” 
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
"

Another crim reminder on September 17 2017 on his birthday my 42 year old son died on a day we should have had fun instead in an instant Victor Alan Warren is gone from this world but I believe what Jesus said "He who believes in me,even though he be dead,Yet shall he Live!" One day soon we all will be reunited with Jesus Christ and all our loved ones will be there to ,to live forever with our father Yahwah Amen and Amen!

IN YESHUA MESSIAH / JESUS NAME
