HAVE YOU DECIDED WHERE TO SPEND YOUR ETERNITY? TWO DESTINATIONS AVAILABLE AND NO IN-BETWEEN

HAVE YOU DECIDED WHERE TO SPEND YOUR ETERNITY? TWO DESTINATIONS AVAILABLE AND NO IN-BETWEEN

Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” – in reference to the human spirit (soul)
Genesis 3:19 “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” – in reference to the physical human body (skin, bones etc)
Revelation 20:12-13 “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.” – souls of men being judged before the presence of GOD
Ecclesiastes 3:20 “All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.” – again in reference to the physical human body
2 Corinthians 5:10 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” – only the soul of the human outlived this physical body and it is the soul that will either be cast to hell fire or be welcome to heaven of righteousness

This is not a sermon to entertain you but a straight talk to bring you into submitting yourself to the saving POWER of JESUS CHRIST, who died and shed his blood for you on the cross of calvary for the remission of your sins. Matthew 26:28 “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Hebrews 9:22 “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”

NOW, THE ISSUE IS ABOUT THE PLACE TO SPEND YOUR ETERNITY

Let me first warn you that if at all you’ve ever dreamt of spending your eternity in heaven without accepting the LORDSHIP of JESUS CHRIST, let me be very blunt with the truth to you now that you are actually day dreaming and IT WILL NEVER COME TO REALITY. No matter your religious engagement and disposition, JESUS CHRIST remains the ONLY ONE WAY TO HEAVEN for all ages and throughout this whole earth. So, repent of your sins now and accept JESUS CHRIST as your LORD and personal saviour, walk in His way through holiness and righteousness, so that indeed, you will go to heaven when you DIE out of this world. Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Now, what thought usually runs through your mind anytime you heard that people died? Not just that a person died, but that PEOPLE died! Have you ever thought that you would have been one of them if not for the mercy and grace of GOD that preserved you? Do you think that these people dying prematurely meeting their untimely deaths even while struggling to make ends meet ever planned to die that way? Do you think that they are the greatest sinner hence they must die these sorrowful and painful deaths in the hands of terrorists, armed robbers, ritualists, cultists and other wicked agents of Satan? No, they were not the worst among the sinners of today whereby I and you are even wicked than they were, but they are dead now and you are still alive. Most times you even think that you are better and smarter than they were hence you are still alive today. No, my friend, they too never thought that they will never returned back home from their journey, neither do they bid their family bye-bye forever when they were living for their daily jobs and businesses. Just like you and I usually do when living home for our various jobs with the mind-set of returning home in the evening, so they prayed and wished but alas, their life was caught off in the middle. What an unprepared death!

As devastating as these untimely deaths may be, one thing is definitely sure for the dead who were caught in the middle of the fire – they have since faced their eternal judgment in the hands of an uncompromising GOD, who cannot be bribed nor have respect of persons when it comes to delivering His faithful judgment. Remember, it is with the works of your hands you are doing right now that you will be judged. So, consider your life now, should you meet your untimely death this minute, where do you think you will land in eternity? Don’t tell me God forbid because whether you like it or not, YOU WILL SURELY DIE SOMEDAY if CHRIST tarries to return in the rapture. So, where will you spend your eternity?

Therefore, in case you are still going as if you own your life without any remorse when you do evil, my dear friend you are just a walking corpse. Those that died in the fire inferno in Ghana this week and those that have been dying daily from the Boko Haram menace in Nigeria never ever envisaged such a disaster will ever meet them in their wildest imaginations, but where are they right now? All dead and they have since faced the unbiased judgment of GOD as a result of their works. So, prepare to die rather than to live so that death will not take you unaware. Prepare your house and family for death by settling every single sinful issue you know you were involved in. Make amendment and restitution where necessary so that when death caught up with you at any point in time, you know that surely, “the prince of this world (devil) cometh, and hath nothing in you” John 14:30 to accused you of before the Almighty GOD because he is indeed the accuser of the brethren Revelation 12:10.

So, my dear readers and friend, should death knock on your door right now as it does not announce its coming, what will you do? Will your garment be spotless to earn you eternity in heaven, or is it defiled to earn you eternity in hell fire? The choice is yours. Remember, be prepared for your death because IT IS ON ITS WAY COMING SOONER THAN LATER. Paul called death gain because he was very sure of the place he will be spending his eternity. Are you sure of your own? Philippians 1:21 “For to me to live is Christ, and TO DIE IS GAIN.”


Shalom!
