Life’s Greatest Decision
We will all die one day!
What do you think will happen to you after death?
The Bible clearly says that there is a day of resurrection from the dead followed by judgment of God.
John 5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear His voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
The Bible’s message is loud and clear. All those that commit sin will be punished in the lake of fire. But the good news is that Jesus Christ, God Himself, came down into this world so that you can have LIFE. You can receive the salvation of God and forgiveness of your sins by believing on Jesus Christ and obeying His words written in the Bible.
SIN SEPERATES US FROM GOD
There is only ONE TRUE God who created this whole universe. He created us in His own image and gave us this earth as a habitation. God’s intention in creating us was to bless us. In spite of enjoying God’s blessings, the Bible declares that all of mankind has sinned against God.
Galatians 5:19 …adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like…
Revelation 21:8 …the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
If you are doing any of these things or have done any of them before, and it so happens that you die in your sins, you will face the ‘second death’, which is to suffer torment in the lake of fire.
Perhaps you may say that you are not such a bad person or you may think that God will some how overlook your smaller sins because of the other good deeds or religious activities that you have done. But the Bible is very clear that no matter how many good works you do, if you do not have faith in Jesus Christ, all your good works count to nothing and they cannot save you from the lake of fire.
YOUR SINS CAN BE FORGIVEN ONLY BY JESUS
There is hope for you to be saved from the lake of fire. God does not want you to perish. So He came down to earth in human form as Jesus Christ. He lived a life that was sinless. He preached and taught about what would it take for man to be reconciled with God. He demonstrated His love by the sacrificing death on the cross for the sins of the world. Jesus Christ died for us to take away our sins.
1Peter 2:24 He took our sins on himself, giving his body to be nailed on the tree, so that we, being dead to sin, might have a new life in righteousness, and by his wounds we have been made well.
Jesus did not remain dead; He rose from the dead on the third day. His grave is empty. He is alive! Jesus is the only one to be resurrected from the dead and lives forever.
After the resurrection, Jesus returned to heaven and now waits for the time until He will return to this earth a second time. When he returns, He will judge every one, both those that are dead and those that are alive. He will then establish the Kingdom of God, where there will be no death, nor sorrow, nor crying and we will receive from God: glory, honor and immortality.
Because of His death and resurrection, only through Jesus Christ we have an opportunity to be forgiven of our sins.
Acts 4:12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
