Heaven or hell is the destination for all people on earth, whether they like it or not. There is no choice in the matter, for Jesus will be our judge when we die. The thing is, most people are on the path of destruction which leads to hell fire and damnation, and only few people are headed to heaven when they die. This is very sad, since people have the choice now to get a Bible on their smartphone real easily and read it for themselves, but do not. These lost people also have, most likely, been told about Jesus throughout their lifetime, but have rejected Him. Even a certain evangelist may have talked with them and they disregarded him/her. God stood in the way of their sinful lifestyle and their current beliefs, so the hardness of their hearts took over. Therefore, these wicked people may not all appear this way in person, but in their heart, their wickedness stinks before the Lord. He knows their heart and it is filthy. Please know that anyone that isn’t covered by the blood of Jesus reeks in the sight of God. And because of their uncleanness, they have to be cast into of the lake of fire after judgement is set in. These people are not worthy to enter the holy and pure gates of heaven. John also saw these people and said, 1“but the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8) If I was them and I still had breath, then I would be crying out to God. I would not live another day without getting right with Him.
To those people that made a choice to repent, and turn from their sins, and unto Jesus for salvation, these people are saved. It is their faith in Christ that will save them, once they die. They are no longer unclean but cleansed in His sight. As long as they no longer walked in sin but for the Lord, then they have nothing to worry about come death. This is because He has made them His child. And with the Holy Spirit that He places in their lives, they are guided unto all truth and righteousness. And even when we fall, He lifts us back up and steadies us again on His holy path. To these people that desire to live for Jesus and know His Words in the Bible, they are ready to embark when their souls leaves this earth. They are then welcomed into heaven, and oh how their souls will be eternally happy. They will be beaming for joy. This is because, 1“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. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.” (Revelation 21:4-7) Now I hope that you see how much better heaven is then hell. Everyone that trusts in Jesus will be there. May this jump start your faith, that you will ready also.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people will make the right decision to believe in and follow You, before their life is over. I do not wish to see my family and friends go to hell, when they had a choice to pray and confess their sins to You. You are so good to us all and Your mercy is never ending. For that reason, people just need to be humble enough to poor their hearts out to You and Your forgiveness is given. Thank You Lord. Thank You for taking our sins upon Yourself and paying the price for them on the cross. It is because of what You have done, that we are cleansed by Your blood. Every wicked way is destroyed in our lives and You put us on the holy path when we believe. Thank You for responding to our needs and giving us so many chances, when we don’t deserve it. Your mercy does endure forever and I am an example of a person that You have extended Your great mercy and compassion to. In my sins, I neglected my opportunity to repent so many times, but You stuck with me until time was ready. In my brokenness, You heard my cries and came to my rescue. I needed a Savior and knew that only You could save me. I love You Lord. I am so blessed to be set free from my addictions and have the Holy Spirit in my life. Now, my desires are not to give into the flesh, but to give into the Sprit. Your needs are most important and I wish to always do Your will above all else. Doing what is righteous brings me the greatest joy of all. I love to see others blessed by Your mighty hand, oh Lord. Thank You for coming into my life and using me for Your kingdom. I trust in You God. Amen.
