Do you want to spend Eternity in Heaven or Hell?

Post  FaithfulSon on Fri 31 Oct 2008, 10:46 am

Matthew 7:14
"Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."


People are so much indulged and soaked in the pleasures of this world that they do not realize that everything will pass away.

Luke 21:33
"Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away."


The only thing they will have left when they die is their relationship with Jesus Christ. They might be having fun right now, but one thing is for sure. We all are going to live forever. The question is, where? There are two places a person can go after life and that is heaven or hell. If you go to heaven you will live forever with no more pain or sorrow. On the other hand, if you choose to deny God's Holy Word, you will go to hell and burn forever.

Revelation 21:4
"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."


OR


Revelation 14:11
"And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."


It is sad that people let their pride take them to hell. Most the time they say "a loving God wouldn't send me to hell." The fact is they are the person sending themselves to hell. God does not want them to go to hell and that is why he sent his only son to die on the cross for the world's sins.

John 3:16
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."


I don't understand people these days. They say they have their own relationship with God and He understands them. They think they love God when the Bible points out that they do not.

John 14:15
"If ye love me, keep my commandments."


A true believer in Christ will be heart broken when they sin. They know that Jesus Christ was beaten and hung on the cross to die for their sins. They will come to God and repent with a humble heart and ask forgiveness. When we read in the Bible, we know that it is better to be humble than hold on to our pride.

Proverbs 16:19
"Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud."


If you do not know Jesus as your own personal savior, I think today will be a good day to accept Jesus in your heart. Examine yourself, look at your sins, and realize why you need a savior. Our sins will take us to hell, but threw Jesus Christ we can live forever in happiness. All you have to do is humble your heart and tell Jesus that you are a sinner in need of a savior and ask forgiveness. When you do this the Bible tells us that we will be made a new creature. We ourselves cannot change but when we accept Jesus he will help us change.

Romans 5:12
"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:"


2 Cor 5:17
"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."


If you do not accept Jesus Christ in your life and you die, you will go to hell and burn forever. There will be no way out and no more chances to repent. The Bible tells us that man is appointed to die once and then face judgment. It also says, no man knows what hour the Lord will come.

Hebrews 9:27
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"


Matthew 24:42
"Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come."


So it is your choice, where do you want to go when you die? God has made it so simple for us. All you have to do is believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins. Then show love towards him by obeying his commandments. I pray that this post may of helped you to see the reason to accept Jesus in your life. I do not want anyone to go to hell, that is the reason I posted this. So please do not let your pride take you to hell.

Beautiful and I liked it very much. Instead of debating and discussing we must believe what the Bible says and Bible says that Hell is real and we must all avoid spending our days there.

Be blessed in Christ
