One of the hardest things for a Christian to overcome is accepting the sovereign will of God when it’s contrary to their desires. As we are living in the times the Bible refers to as the “last days”, we see death, tragedy, disease, chaos and despair almost daily. However, when Death hits your front doorstep it’s not only a direct hit to your heart, but a mega-blow to your faith. Dylan Smith knows this feeling all too well. In fact, Death has come to his doorstep time and time again. He’s had enough and his faith is nonexistent. After moving through life like a zombie, he decides to make a date with death on his own terms - suicide. As he contemplates taking his life, he gives one last rant to let God know exactly how he feels. What he wasn’t expecting was that Death himself would walk through the door.
The encounter not only shakes him to the core, but confronts the decision he’s recently come to. The Angel of Death gives him information he was not prepared for. Death challenges Dylan not to return YHWH’s breath back to Him prematurely and see past his pain to the sovereign will of God. Dylan is given the chance to discover just how powerful Jehovah Shalom really is.
