Your Destination Please?
Your Destination Please?
Between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us. LUKE 16:26
The gulf between Hades and Paradise is fixed—immovable. The gulf is not going to be taken away. What you do in this life fixes forever where you will spend eternity. If you reject Jesus Christ in this life, you will remain in hell forever. There is no crossing back, no second chance, no coming back and starting over. Thankfully, the decision you make for Jesus Christ in this life fixes your eternal salvation forever as well. The point is that the gulf, the divide between heaven and hell, is a fixed divide. Therefore, whatever decision you make in this life—for or against Jesus Christ—is a decision that you will live with for eternity. No one knows what the next minute, hour, day, or year will bring. The decision you die with is the decision you will live with forever. - Blackaby Being Still With God
I cannot stress it enough. You HAVE to know where you are going!
God's Word is very explicit in regards to where you spend eternity depends upon your choice in the here and now.
You can choose to reject Jesus as your Savior or you come to Christ to be saved.
There's no other road in life that is like the road you are on.
It's not about prestige or accolades or titles or achievements.
It's not about who you know or have met or are related to.
It will never be about what you own, drive, or wear as clothes or shoes.
It's not about where you live or have been to on this world or in space.
These things the world cherishes and wars to own.
In the grand scheme of things all are worthless rubbish. Trash. In light of your destination.
I can promise you, by the Word of God, all those things mean absolutely nothing to those suffering in Hell.
You cannot take your title, your possessions, your anything with you when you leave this world. You are either saved in Christ Jesus or you are not.
Your good deeds won't save you. If that were possible then, as the Scriptures say, Christ died needlessly.
You being a good person by your standards, will not save you. It's the standard that is Christ Jesus that matters. Jesus is and was the perfect sacrifice to make Salvation possible.
You decieve yourself if you believe in anything else to save you.
In Hell are countless billions of people who wish they knew then what they know now.
That the wages of sin is death.
That the punishment for sin is eternal separation from God.
That rejection of Christ Jesus put them right where they are in their torment and pain.
You, my Dear Reader, have before you a simple choice. The very same that trillions before you have faced. Come to Christ to be saved or reject Jesus. Your choice determines your destination.
Jesus shared a horrible story of the Rich Man and Lazarus. In that place of weeping and gnashing of teeth the Rich Man found himself. After Jesus ascended back to Heaven He took all who were awaiting Him with Him. That is what the Bible called Paradise. It's no longer there.
Every day, every moment of every day, millions pour into Hell. You and I do not know when our time will be up in this life. Millions right now who just died thought they had a today, let alone a tomorrow. Millions are waking up in Hell to unbelievable pain and anguish. The wages for their sins. A single sin in a person who does not have eternal life in Christ would put them there. One. We are born in sin. Without salvation in Christ Jesus every person would end up in Hell. Everyone.
Jesus is the only way to be saved. In no other name under Heaven must someone be saved.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16.
Read that differently.
For God so loved (insert your name) that He gave His only begotten Son, that if (insert your name) believes in Him (insert your name) will not perish but have everlasting life.
You have taken a few moments to read this far for a reason.
The invitation is before you to find salvation and to decide your destination.
Every single person in Hell cannot change their mind.
There are no second chances. No do overs.
In this world the deaf, blind, and unable to speak have ways to learn about salvation in Christ. There's no excuse for all who stand before Christ. None.
If God is indeed talking to you now, please don't hesitate. You may be nearer to deaths door than you realize. Look up the Romans Road to Salvation. Decide your destination today.
