A discussion has been openedDo you ever sit down and think about the after life? Do you think about your eternal destination? What you do with Jesus Christ in this life determines where you will spend eternity and that is Heaven or Hell. I am extremely concerned about the lost souls of this world. I very often have tears and sleepless nights to know that the majority of people in this world, even those I know and very close to are heading for a lost eternity and eternity of torment because of their rejection of Jesus Christ. “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” – Matthew 7:14 It is really sad. Just imagine one day waking up in a place where there are no beautiful flowers, trees, water, lovely animals and food. But a place that is a “furnace of fire” where “there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth“. Just imagine! Please take the time to read and check out what I am writing to you. This could save your life! Time is very precious!
People are so preoccupied with their jobs, education, wealth, health, hobbies and possessions that they don’t take the time to think about where they will spend eternity when they die. Face it! Everyone dies and then goes to either one of two places heaven or hell. The King James Bible says says “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” – Hebrews 9:27.
You and I both are not good enough to get to heaven on our own, we are hell deserving sinners. ”There is none righteous, no, not one.” – Romans 3:10 Our good works, religion, baptism or church attendance will not get us right with God. We cannot earn our way to heaven because in God’s sight we are sinners and sin needs to be punished. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3:23 We are all born as sinners. “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.” – Psalm 51:5 If you believe you’re a “good person” and trusting your “good works” to get you to heaven, you will never make it. ”We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;” – Isaiah 64:6
There is no “good work” we can do that will get us to heaven! ”For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness, of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every on that believeth” – Romans 10:3-4 Jesus Christ because He loves you so much came into the world from heaven to save you from your sins, He claimed to be God in the flesh. “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” – 1 Timothy 1:15; “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” – John 3:16 Jesus Christ is the Son of God, He live a perfect and sinless life, shed His precious blood on the cross to pay for your sins because you could not!
It has been recorded in the Bible in 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 That Jesus Christ died, was buried and rose again on the third day, right now Jesus Christ is with His Father in heaven. He was seen of by many!
Salvation is a free gift to all who put their faith in Jesus Christ and receive Him as Lord and Saviour. “If shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” – Romans 10:9 Why not pray and ask the Lord Jesus Christ to save you and cleanse you from all sin? He will just as He promised. He will guide in all things in your life if you ask Him.
Eternal is a free gift, you cannot earn it! ”For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.” – Ephesians 2:8-9 The definition of “gift” is, “a thing given willingly to someone without payment”
Jesus Christ is the only way to get to heaven. There is no other way. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me. – John 14:6
Death is is what awaits everyone. What you do with Jesus Christ determines where you will spend eternity. You can either accept or reject Him.
But if you die in your sins you sadly will go to hell. It will be too late then! The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. - 2 Peter 3:9
This is written because I care about you. But ask yourself this question, where will you spend eternity?
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. - Acts 16:31
Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen. - Romans 9:5
