Where do I go from here? .... Where do I spend eternity?
There is a moment which lies ahead of each one of us when “time shall no longer be”; - a moment when each one of us shall come to the end of time’s course, and step out of time into eternity (the very realm where God the creator dwells).
For each individual, there comes a moment when the “hands of their life-time clock´ would come to a standstill. This is the moment when TIME ceases and ETERNITY begins for that individual.
The Bible declares in Leviticus 17: 14 that, “ the life of all flesh is in the blood thereof.
Man is a Spirit, having a Soul and dwelling in a body thus, a tripartite Being. The life (which is the soul of each person) is in the Blood. As this invisible life of the Soul is withdrawn physically from the body (which is only a container for the Spirit and the Soul), the visible evidence is that the blood ceases to circulate, and the heart ceases to beat. At this momentary period, DEATH is said to have taken place, and therefore TIME ceases for the individual concerned. At that very moment the soul departs, loosing its contact with TIME and stepping out into ETERNITY.
Dear reader, there is one thing you have to be aware of; and that is, “it is appointed unto man once to die, after which there is JUDGEMENT” (Heb 9:27).
This presupposes that a day comes when you will appear before God, the Creator of heaven and earth, when your past records will be shown to you and when you will give account of yourself—be it good or bad.
What you should know is that, you are only a passer-by (stranger), wandering through this land. You have a destination, and until you reach there, you will have no rest. Know also that life is but a walking shadow, you see it only when the sun is shining but when the night falls, all life’s shadow disappears.
Life can also be likened to a flower on a plant: in the morning its glory is seen, but let the evening come and its glory fades away.
Have you ever thought that life will be over soon?
Just pause for a reflection over your life. Have you ever considered what LIFE actually is? Some people say life is WAR, yes in a sense they are right. Just as death is real, so is life after death. You may either spend this life after death in an everlasting torment and sadness or in a perpetual comfort and happiness. Wherever you may be, that will be your ETERNITY, a realm where “time does exist, hence, neither day nor night.
The good news is that, whilst you have breath and do exist, this is the period when you can prepare yourself as to where you want to spend eternity. Whereas it is indisputable that God is the creator of all things, the truth still remains that the choice of where everybody wants to spend their eternity has been given to them.
The God who created you and has been caring for you all these years, wishes above all things that you be in good health and prosper just as your soul prospers (3 John 1:2).
Above all your sinful nature, God wishes that you do not perish and enter into that perpetual destruction. He would rather like you to have a better future where there will be no sorrow, pain and weeping, by coming to the Saviour, our Lord Jesus Christ.
The supreme and sovereign God calls you to come home, and just like the prodigal son, return to him and he will uphold you with his righteous hands.
For far too long you might have gone astray from the ONLY way leading us HOME as pilgrims on this land. You have trodden the path of sin; and the end of this sinful path is hell. Be not wise therefore in your own understanding (Proverbs 3:7). Consider your ways and seek God through Jesus Christ, our Saviour.
His arms are widely open to embrace you home. Jesus Christ came to set you free from all satanic bondage and to re-direct your ways to the only true God. He has much to offer you today—peace, joy, hope and above all a future.
Why should you still live your life as if there is neither God nor accountability? He has the right to demand the life in you at any moment in time. Know also that after death you shall be accountable to yourself before God.
Why won’t you live to please Him now that you still have breath (Psalm 150:6)?
The way you live today will determine where you will spend your eternity.
The great question now is; how can you keep your way pure?
You have to guide it by the Word of God, which is the Holy Bible, containing the commandments of the Living God (Psalm 119:9).
God is calling you now to repentance. He is pleading with you today. Know also that a time is coming when he shall no longer plead with you. By then he shall come as the righteous Judge, not being a respecter of persons or partial.
Why not make a decision today and determine to follow Jesus all the days of your life? Tomorrow may be too late to make any decision; death could welcome you home at any moment in time.
Yesterday is gone forever and what did you add to your historic record? Today is here, seize every opportunity in it to better your past records by accepting the Lord Jesus as your personal saviour. He is the only Son of God, who takes away the sins of the World. Do not procrastinate, dear reader. Consider this to be a solemn moment and do not let it pass by without surrendering your life to him. Commit every part of your Spirit, Soul and Body to Him for He is well able to keep you from falling.
May be you do not know God’s proper way to salvation. Here is the true way!
The bible says believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved. You may have the zeal to worship God but not according to knowledge (Romans 10:1-2). As stated in the bible, Romans 10:9-10, with our heart we believe unto righteousness and with out mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is the very Son of the Living God; believe also that he came to die for your sins. Confess this belief with your mouth in a solemn mood and with a sense of consciousness. Invite him to be the Lord over your life today and be your personal saviour.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life! You can never reach God in any proper way than through Jesus Christ. Having accepted him, I want you to have that confidence that your sins have been forgiven and that your name is written in the Lamb’s book of life.
However, to help you maintain your salvation, it is deemed imperative to find yourself in a Bible believing church where Jesus Christ is preached and fellowship with other Christians.
You are also cordially invited to share fellowship with us at REDEMPTION FAITH MINISTRIES.
We believe that redemption can only come to you when you have faith in God through Jesus Christ.
