What is a Horcrux? For all you ’muggles’ out there (muggles are non-magic folks), a Horcrux is an item (any thing such as a book, a necklace…etc) that contains part of your soul. This is a dark wizard’s way of obtaining immortality (aka eternal life). The only way you can make one is by committing the ultimate act of evil: murdering an innocent person, which literally rips their soul apart into however many pieces they so choose (murder of one makes one Horcrux, murder of 7 makes 7 Horcruxes…etc).
Once the Horcrux is made, the witch or wizard that made the Horcrux can not die; hence the fascination of making Horcruxes . The only way for the witch or wizard that made said Horcruxes can die, is if all of the Horcruxes have been destroyed. This takes away the protection of “eternal life/immortality”, thus returning them to their original state of mortality.
Where is this going and what does all this have to do with God? Voldemort (the darkest wizard of all time in the Harry Potter series) made 7 Horcruxes. He was seeking eternal life. His pride and arrogance clouded his mind and judgment. He was seeking eternal life through things of this world. Things that could be found and destroyed, which would leave him mortal and vulnerable.
Harry, Ron, and Hermione (along with Dumbledore’s help before he passed on as well as Neville and the accidental destruction of one by Vincent Crabbe) sought out all of Voldemort’s Horcruxes and destroyed them one by one. This, in turn, caused Voldemort’s demise in the end
For centuries, people have been searching for the exact same thing: eternal life. They have done this by creating so many different religions and belief systems. This is the same concept as splitting one’s soul into pieces. Both Voldemort and humans seeking eternal life outside of Jesus Christ were hoping for the same end result.
This belief system is what caused Voldemort to fail in his attempt at eternal life, and destroyed the lives and spirits of others around him in the process. The same goes for those who do not know/accept the only true way to eternal life. They will not obtain it and those around them that follow their lead, will ultimately fail in their quest for eternal life as well.
What people do not realize, is that they already have an eternal life waiting for them in the end. They have a choice as to which eternal life they will live, either in Heaven with God or in Hell. It sounds harsh, but that is the truth. Our time here is limited. We never know when our time and mission here will be complete. There is also no “cut” and “re-take” in the movie called Life. Once we pass on there are no do-over’s, so choose wisely.
How do you choose eternal life with the Father in Heaven? You need to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior of your life, believe that He died for your sins and was resurrected, and confess all of your sins to Him and ask for forgiveness. Once you are saved and have asked for forgiveness, your slate (all your sins) is washed clean. God will no longer remember the sins you whole heartedly asked for forgiveness for. There is no sin too great for God to forgive. Sin is sin, it is as simple as that. All sin is equal in His eyes.
Remember to love passionately, forgive completely, laugh often, and protect yourself and those around you from ‘demons’ (personal demons or attacks Satan unleashes on you/those around you) by completely surrendering to God. Finally, introduce God to people around you through His light flowing out of you via your actions and words.
Don’t end up like Voldemort, broken and destroyed (inside and out). Jesus Christ has always been our “Horcrux”. His death (the death of an innocent person) secured our path to eternal life with Him. Choose eternal life with Him today, because He has already chosen you.
