Meeting My Maker

My time had come to leave this earth. I took my last dying breath. I found myself standing on a cloud with a golden road that led up to a giant golden gate with precious pearls and jewels set in them. I noticed that there was someone waiting for me and was standing in the center, in between the two gates. It was Jesus Christ and it was His glorified body. He looked just like He did before when I first met Him in my dream. The glorious light hurt my eyes and He was so magnificent, even from a distance. I stumbled over to Him and fell at his feet. I wrapped my arms around His ankles and began to sob. I kissed His feet several times.

Jesus bent down low to the ground and put His index finger under my chin. He slowly lifted my head up and I was face-to-face with Him. My God.

My entire body was shaking, partly from feeling like a total failure in life, and also partly because I was before His mighty presence. I had a hard time speaking, but I managed to abruptly let out the words, "I have failed you so many times and my life could have been so much better. Please, show compassion and mercy on me!"

Jesus Christ began to show me visions of what my life could have been if I lived in a more Godly and pleasing manner to Him. I broke down crying at the things that I could have done, but failed because I made terrible decisions. There were so many things I missed out on in life and it broke my heart to see all of the possibilities before me.

When Christ showed me the very last vision of how I could have lived my life, I turned my head away from Him and began to sob into my arm. "I can't be here, Jesus. I don't deserve to be in Heaven after what I have done."

Jesus calmly called my name and told me to come closer to Him.

I struggled to pick myself up. I was so burdened with guilt and shame. I stood there trying to control my emotions.

Jesus took His hand and wiped the tears away from my eyes. The moment His hand touched my face, the tears stopped flowing. "Come with me and receive your crown my child," Christ commanded.

I followed Him through the gates and the moment I stepped foot inside, all regrets, remorse, and pain had left me. I had a new and glorified body and I was now perfect. I got down very low before Him and began to worship and praise Him.

Jesus Christ took a jeweled crown and placed it upon my head.

I looked up at Him and waited to hear the words that I so desperately craved to hear my whole entire life.

"Well done, good and faithful servant," He said.

I fell back down on my face and began to worship Him.

Jesus called out my name again. "I have another reward for you," He said.

I looked up and I saw that He was holding Rainbow Dash in His arms. He got down to my level and placed her in my arms.

I began to stutter. "Y-y-y-you saved her just for me?" I asked.

Jesus smiled and said, "I know how much you enjoy her. I have another surprise for you."

Suddenly, Applejack appeared from behind Jesus and then followed by Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rarity, and Twilight Sparkle. The ponies walked over to me and stood by my side.

Rainbow Dash leapt out of my arms and stood at my side. There were three ponies on my right, and three ponies on my left. Applejack and Rainbow Dash were the closest to my side. Rainbow Dash spoke up and said, "We were all created to worship and we will give praise to our Creator."

It was almost like it was right on que. All of the ponies and myself bowed down at the same time. No one was told to bow and we were all in perfect sync with each other.

I would be at peace here for all eternity and I would worship my Creator with my little pony friends by my side.

The end.

Author's Note:

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic has been an idol in my life as well as other things. This is why I created this story. To remind myself of how I once accidently put the show over the one true God in my life for a short time, and I will probably always be in that danger zone when it comes to doing something like that again. I now try to write Christian themed stories and stories that use scripture. It is my hope that I may use my obsession of this show for good use.

I also want to make one last comment about the story. I have a very special friend who is also a fellow Brony in Christ. He helped me with a certain part of my story, and I feel that he really made the story shine even brighter. Thank you Celestial Swordsman on FIM fiction.

I almost got teary eyed from this. Thank you for this great reminder in such a beautifully written story on how to not worship idols. Right now, I'm trying to have a more powerful relationship with Christ and this story helped a lot. I still love My Little Pony and all the loveable characters, but Jesus Christ always comes first. Thank you, my friend. God bless. :pinkiehappy:

You sir, deserve all the kudos in the world. This was beautiful. The Lord has shown me things about my life through this. I'm getting better about not making this show my idol, but I will work much harder. Thank you, sir.

3418074 Thank you so much. I'm so glad that you're doing better with your relationship with God, and I'm glad that you're still able to enjoy the show without letting it get in the way of what's most important. :twilightsmile:

Too bad Christianity is a load of rubbish.

I hear the Bible is the top selling fiction book this year.

3902357 I can understand if you aren't a christian and all, but that was just a rude and stupid thing to say :( please mind your comments and try not to be that way. I bet God is mad at u for saying dat -3-

Technically, if your "God" did exist, he wouldn't dislike me for having no belief; because he loves all his children, he'd merely be saddened that I must be sent to hell. Please, practice what you preach.

Also, I won't mind my tongue; because religion is pure bullshit.

3931245 I have nothing else to say to make you repent to God (that you claim doesn't exsist but does) so I will just leave you alone and pray that when you die you hopefully wont go to hell. I hope someday in your life you'll regret saying this and ask the Lord for forgiveness. And of course if you reply with another rude comment, I obviously wont reply back. May God forgive you.

If your response to everything is "God says no" then you're a terrible Christian. I'm a better Christian than you, and I don't even fucking believe. Good game, top-cunt.

3256551 I feel like doing a Christian mlp fanfic. I want to, I even have a concept. But I'm nervous about actually doing it honestly. People in history that committed atrocities in god's name have given atheists a bad oppinion about the rest of us. I don't hate atheists, even the ones that are real jerks and act self-righteous get on my nerves, I can't bring myself to hate them. God teaches us to love them and to tell them about Christ, and we should do it in a way that won't turn them away. But I know the fandom talks of "love and tolerance" but that doesn't seem to be the case for some of them when it comes to Christians. I want to do this fic but I'm nervouse, I shouldn't be but I am.

whoa....that was....wow. uh, excuse me, I need to go re-think my life on where I stand with God. But before I do that, I have to say that this was an amazing story. Kinda feels rushed to me, but it still got the point across vary well. God gave you an amazing gift in writing, and I think this site needs more stories like this. Keep up the great work. :scootangel:

4266787 go for it, let it get to those who will read and those who don't like it then i'm sorry that they think it is bad but don't let naysayers dictate what you post.
