Commentary By: Gordon King
If you knew that you were going to die this evening do you know where you would be going? Would you even care? This subject is something which most people tend to avoid thinking about, yet it is the most crucial subject in life!
These are questions that all of us should be asking ourselves, because we are all going to die, unless of course we are raptured first.
Our lives on this planet we call Earth is very short, and anything could happen to take our life from us. With the increase of evil and violence, of natural and man-made disasters all around us, the odds of us dying sooner than later seem inevitable. Yet, just how many people in the world have given this much thought?
There are only two choices to make, either heaven or hell, no others, no in-betweens, no alternatives, our souls will live on forever in one of these two places. We don’t merely vanish into thin air once we die as some believe. Some believe that after we die that’s it, lights out, end of life. I don’t believe it, not for one second, and you shouldn’t either!
Many people claim that they will go to heaven, no matter what they believe or who they believe in, they are just as deceived! There is only one way to heaven, and that way is through Jesus Christ!
You must be saved, born-again in order to enter the kingdom of heaven, no other way my friends, none! Other than that you are destined for hell.
So, you can put it off until it’s too late, you can wait until you’re dying moments and then try to accept Christ, good luck with that, or you can do it now while you still have time. Waiting until you have your last breath is foolish and unwise, for you don’t know if you will have time, and you definitely won’t have enough time to think about it. You may be killed instantly and never even see it coming! These are difficult things to think about, but we must. Avoiding them can lead to eternal destruction!
You don’t have to be afraid, unless of course you choose not to follow Christ, then you have much to fear. For the world is quickly becoming a dark and evil place, a place of great deception, chaos, and confusion. You may already be deceived and not even know it! Ask God to show you the way, seek the truth with an open heart. Ask Jesus Christ to lead you to salvation, He will.
It’s very simple, but it’s also difficult. You must decide whom to follow in this life, you must make a choice, all of us must. You may be avoiding the subject, yet in doing so you have already made a choice. But it’s not too late to change your mind and your heart. Today is the day of salvation!
LORD God in heaven, You love us all so very much, You are kind and good, holy and righteous. I pray for those who are lost to see the light, I pray for You to give them a softened heart and eyes to see. I pray for You to give them all visions and dreams of the truth! Bring them to salvation, all for Your glory! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
