Where are you going? Heaven or Hell

Jesus said…

“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” (John 3:36 NKJV)

Heaven or Hell?

What happens to men and women when they die? Do people simply cease to exist as some people say, or is there life after death?

The Bible tells us that it is “appointed unto men once to die and after that the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). In Matthew 25, we read that when Jesus returns to earth He will sit on His judgment throne and separate the people of all nations into two groups. Those on His right will hear the words, “Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” Those on His left will hear the words, “Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.”

This glimpse into the future makes what we do in this life a very important matter. Today is the day we must submit ourselves to Jesus, put our faith and trust in Him, and do the things He asks of us. None of us will escape this judgment. 2 Corinthians 5:10 says, “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.”

In eternity, where will you be? Heaven or hell? I hope you will be with all of those on Jesus’ right hand because of the choices you made in this life. Heaven is a destination you cannot afford to miss.

  1. I would like to know where my path is leading me. To heaven or hell. Only my heavenly father will know

    • You are right that only God knows what your future is, or how you will be judged for the life you chose to live. However, the Bible does give some clear direction as to how our choices determine the path we are on.

      If the path we are on is a path that is following after Christ, then we can rest assured that, despite our human failures, we will be with him for eternity. Jesus made it clear that our eternal home depends on who or what we follow now.

      Luke 9:23 Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.

      If we are following money, or sex, or fame, or anything or anyone else, then we can expect not to come into eternity with Christ, and to be separated from him for eternity.

      So in answer to your question, whether your path is leading you to heaven or hell, you must ask, “who or what am I following after?” If you have repented of your sins, and have entered into God’s Kingdom here on earth, then you will be in his Kingdom after death as well.

  2. I’m a Christian … but I feel like I’m loosing the warfare … I think maybe I’m not understanding how to put on the armor … and o need physical and emotional healing because I wake up with pain and work throughout my days like that and it’s terrible

    • There are several things every Christian needs. They need to read their Bible, they need to take time to pray, they need to have Christian fellowship. The Christian life is a relationship, first with Christ, then with other Christians in a church setting. I know almost nothing about you, but from what you say, I wonder if you shouldn’t look for an experienced counsellor. Maybe your pastor?

    • To put on the armor you need to realize the pieces are symbolic. The helmet of salvation is salvation from death. It is not a literal helmet. It is literal salvation. To be saved (rescued from death & sin & satan) you need to do everything the Bible says to do. Luke 9 gives the strictest recipe. Deny yourself, take up your cross daily & follow Jesus. In modern English this means to say no to yourself everyday & do what Jesus asks of you every day. Other places say to repent & be baptized in the name of Jesus. Means exactly the same thing. John 3 says to believe on the name of Jesus. Also means the same thing. The greek for believe here means to rely upon. Many have mistakenly said to rely upon the death of Jesus. That inoculated millions against Christianity. I did that and thought it got me out of the death penalty for my sin. Then Jesus said for me to follow Him. I said No the 1st time. The 2nd time I said yes and I became spiritually alive. The Bible says to be born again. The way is to stop doing things your way and do everything God’s way. He then empowers you to do it.


    You think this is what Jesus wants?

    • If you are being charged for calling our toll free numbers it probably has to do with your personal phone plan. We do not receive any money from incoming calls. We need to pay for receiving them. We receive around 300 calls a day on our toll free lines and I’m sure that those callers aren’t paying $8 a minute or we would know about it. However, if you use a fake email address, how are we to contact you to follow up? And swearing at us doesn’t help either one of us sort out the situation.

  4. If u ask god to forgive you for the same thing will he still forgive

    • God wants to give us victory over sin in our lives. He also realizes that we are humans and prone to failure. So the answer is “it depends”. God does not view deliberate sin kindly. In the Old Testament, He stated that the sacrifices were for the forgiveness of sins of ignorance, but that presumptuous sins were not covered. (See Numbers 15:22-31) I do not believe in sinless perfection. You may slip and fall sometimes. But to deliberately continue to sin with the idea that “God will forgive me anyway) is treading on very thin ice.

    • Christ said in
      Matthew 6:14 “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:” Also David said in psalms 103, “2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
      3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;”

      God loves us so much and has given us this life to learn. He knows everything and doesn’t expect immediate perfection. (That’s not humanly possible.) Because of Christ, we have each day to do better and grow. He loves us and will change us as we repent, like previously stated. Sin hurts us and Him. Through his grace, forgiveness and our repentance, we can become like him as he commanded. He loves you. Just ask in your prayers and he will help you recognize and feel that.

    • There are at least 2 types of forgiveness offered by God. Judicial forgiveness is where you no longer deserve the death penalty for sin. See Romans 3 and study those big words like propitiation, reconciliation & atonement. Romans 6:23 says the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life. The other forgiveness is relational. 1 John 1:9 tells us we have to admit what we did that hurt our closeness to God and that he will clean us up.

  5. Is being lesbian mean your going to hell? Cause, I have a girlfriend and I’m okay with it.

  6. Are you non-denominational? Thanks.

  7. Are trying to guilt me into believing or trying to scare the Hell out of me?

    I am pretty sure Jesus did the opposite.

    • @Todd, Our purpose is to make you (and others) aware that you have a choice of destinies. If you read the gospels you will see that Jesus referred to hell more than heaven. However, just following Jesus so that you can avoid hell isn’t really the answer. Rather, follow Him because of what He has done for you, in appreciation, and the rest will work itself out.

  8. Thank you for the encouraging billboards that we have seen as we travel from the mid west to the east coast on this Christmas Eve night!

  9. What do I have to do to get to heaven? I pray everyday to the Lord and the holy saviour Jesus Christ! even read the bible to my family every day. Do I have to do more to make the Lord satisfied?

    • @Barbara: I’ll repeat the answer I gave to your other comment. Being ready to meet Jesus isn’t just a question of good works. The real question is: Have I submitted to Jesus, and allowed Him to take control of my life? Have I confessed my sins to Him and allowed Him to cleanse me of them? None of us can live a life good enough to merit going to heaven. Instead of constantly asking myself: Am I doing enough good things, I should ask, Am I serving Christ out of a genuine love and a desire to please Him. Too many of us are Christians for what we can get out of it, rather then for what we can do to serve Christ.

  10. Why would the lord take someone so good, so young and so caring of others ?

    • This is a common question. The answer is not short or sweet. Sometimes people really want to know and other times people want an easy reason not to follow Jesus. Personally I think God rarely takes (kills) people. So why does he allow this? 1. Free will is the only other choice to controlling us constantly. 2. God allows Satan to do His dirty work and when his people ask God he can intervene. 3. God sometimes uses bad things to make a bigger thing really good. For example, if children go to Heaven and the parents are so selfish they never think of eternal matters…. losing a child may change them into seeking God and becoming a Christian. Then they may help bring 20 other people into the Kingdom of Heaven.

  11. If a person commits suside , will they go to Heaven or Hell?

    • God is a righteous judge. I don’t think that there is one definitive answer, but for a person to commit suicide because of problems they are facing or because they want to get revenge on someone is a very dubious proposition. I don’t think that God wants us to take that kind of a route. A person with mental difficulties who doesn’t realize what they are doing might be different, but if you can understand what I’m writing then I don’t think that applies to you. Depression is a very serious thing however. If you see a friend going down this road, please help them to find the help they need.

    • It does not matter what exactly a person did if it was not a habit or addiction, the bottom line is to first get to know Jesus in the New Testament (reliable translation such as NIV NKJV NAS ESV etc) then make that Jesus your boss. As you learn to listen to His Spirit that comes into you to make you new, you will see He matches the Bible. Then the likelihood of suicide goes way down due to God in you bringing life hope love and more. This does not usually fix chemical imbalances regarding dopamine serotonin or epinephrine but occasionally God heals the physical along with the emotional. Finding an older same sex mentor who walks with Jesus is best.

  12. I want to go to heaven

    • I’ll leave the same reply here as a I did at the other site. Hopefully you’ll see one of them….
      I think a lot of people would say that. But the question is, what are they doing to make it happen? I can say, “I want to visit my friends in London, England,” but unless I make some preparations it will never happen. Blessings on you as you make those preparations to be ready to go to heaven. If you have questions about that, leave another comment or call out toll free number 855-367-8788 [855 FOR TRUTH]. –LB

  13. If I was married in the military by an officer over seas with no Church service can I get married again

    • It isn’t the service that makes a marriage, but the covenant you make with another person. Because of this the Bible tells us that only death can break a marriage. See Romans 7:1-3.

  14. I want to talk to jesus
