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. 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.

  1. 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

    1. 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?

    2. 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.

    1. 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.

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. 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.
