what About Eternity?

Where will you spend eternity?

What happens after this life? “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” ( Hebrews 9:27 )

After this life has ended there will be a judgement made to determine where you will spend eternity.

It is possible to know without a doubt where you will spend eternity- “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life…” ( I John 5:13 )

There are only two options for eternity:

Eternal life with God in heaven or Eternal punishment separated from God in Hell- “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.” ( Matthew 25:46 )

What does it take to know that you will spend eternity in heaven and not hell?

You must know that:

You are a sinner-

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” ( Romans 3:23 )

“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: ( Romans 5:12 )

There is a penalty for sin-

“For the wages of sin is death…” ( Romans 6:23 )

“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 )

That Jesus Christ suffered and died to save you from your sin-

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” ( Romans 5:8 )

“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God…” ( I Peter 3:18 )

That Jesus rose again conquering death and hell-

“And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.” ( I Corinthians 15:4 )

I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” ( Jesus- Revelation 1:18 )

That Jesus is the only way to heaven-

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” ( John 14:6 )

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” ( Acts 4:12 )

That you can be saved today by placing your faith in Jesus Christ-

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” ( Romans 10:9-10 )

If God has spoken to your heart as you have read this simple plan of salvation, will you stop right now and pray this simple prayer so that you too can know that you will spend eternity in Heaven?

God, I am coming to you today admitting that I am a sinner and that without Jesus Christ I cannot make it to heaven. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins, rose again after three days conquering death and hell, and is still alive today. Today I ask your forgiveness for my sins and I place my faith totally and completely in the Lord Jesus Christ to save me.

If you have prayed this simple prayer in true faith from your heart, you can be assured that you will spend eternity in heaven!
