All That Really Matters
Updated: Feb 23
One day, maybe soon, you will take your last breath. You don't know when that day will be. Then what? Are you gone forever? I don't think you really believe that. Eternity has been placed in your heart. "He has set eternity in the human heart." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)
Your last moment on Earth will be your first moment in your forever life. Where will you be for all eternity? Once you take your last breath on Earth your eternal destination is irrevocably, unchangeably, forever sealed. "...between us and you a great chasm is fixed..." (Luke 16:26)
Your eternal home is totally dependent on your choice now. I pray you have ears to hear. These are the last words we hear from a man standing in Hell. "...I beg you, Father Abraham, send Lazarus to my family. I have five brothers, and I want him to warn them so they don't end up in this place of torment." (Luke 16:28) It will not be a fun party. It is a wretched place prepared for the devil and his angels. You don't want to be there.
I believe Jesus will come for His people as promised in His Word. I believe it will be in our lifetime...maybe soon. If you don't know Him as your Savior, you will be plummeted into a time of unspeakable terror. It is a time called the Tribulation. "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should be no flesh saved..." (Matthew 24:21-22)
After those who love and trust God have been caught up in the clouds to be with the LORD, you still have a chance to repent and turn to Christ, but it will cost your life. The Bible says you will be beheaded, which is much less of a horror than spending eternity separated from God in Hell. "...I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and the Word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands..." (Revelation 20:4)
Please choose God now. Jesus paid for your debt of sin so you could escape the wrath to come. Please accept His beautiful, free offer of forgiveness and eternal life now. "Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD, and not that he should turn from his ways, and live?" (Ezekiel 18:23) God loves you more than you could possibly imagine, but He does not force you to choose eternal life. He gave you a free will.
If you do find yourself in the Tribulation, please do not take a mark on your right hand or forehead. That would damn you to Hell forever. "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 whosever recieveth the mark of his name." (Revelation 14:11)
You don't have to be on Earth for the Tribulation. Admit you are a sinner now. We are all sinners. "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one." (Romans 3:10) The wages of sin is death. Our only hope to be free from the death penalty for sin is to accept that Jesus died in our place as a penalty for our sin. Please accept His offer, His incredible gift, of forgiveness and eternal life.
Repent of your sins. That means be sincerely sorry for your sins, and ask God to forgive you. Unless you repent you will likewise perish. (Luke 13:3) Believe Jesus is LORD. "... if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9,10)
He loves you more than you can begin to imagine. He gave His life so the law of the spirit of life could set you free you from the law of sin and death. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13) What will you do with Jesus' offer? This is the most important question you will ever answer. Be wise. Your answer will determine where will you spend eternity. I pray you will call upon His Name. Many Christians around the world are praying for you.
