Do you know that you will outlive the sun? Do you know that when the earth and the stars have all passed away, you will just be beginning you endless day-a time without end? Once you are born, you will never cease to live, you will live forever. You will be alive eternally. Eternity has no end. This is solemn and fearful truth
Suppose it were possible to tie a rope from the earth to the sun, and ant wee to go there and return on this rope; when the ant has done that a hundred times, only a small fraction of eternity would have passed. Suppose a small boy were to empty an ocean using a cup; the time it will take the boy to do so is a very tiny part of eternity. If it were possible to gather all the books that have ever been written in all fields of human endeavor and in all languages, and a student were to read them all one by one; the time the student will spend reading all the books will only amount to a minute fraction of eternity. If a grain of sand represents one day, all the sand on the sea shore will represent only a small, negligible part of eternity! If a bird went to sharpen its beak once a year at a mountain, when the bird levels the mountain this way, only an insignificant part of eternity would have passed.
ETERNITY! In short, eternity is the life-time of the never dying God. And you will be alive eternally. You will live for eternity, just as God is alive eternally. Once born, a person remains consciously alive forever.
Eternity does not terminate at the time of death; death is just another wrung on the ladder of eternity. It is only a gateway t eternity-eternity in heaven or in hell. There is “the resurrection of life and there is “the resurrection of damnation.” This may surprise you. I pray it does. Every sinner will end up in eternal hell and every saint will go into eternal heaven. You will live forever in heaven or hell.
There is no neutral place; there is nothing like purgatory. Jesus never mentioned anything or anywhere like that. You may say, “I am on the fence.” No! There is no fence. You are either a Christian or sinner. You are either on the narrow way to heaven or on the broad way that leads straight to hell; you will ether live with God forever in heaven or live with Satan in hell forever. These are stark realities you must face.
“Choose you this day” where do you want to spend eternity? You can only answer with an action. Neglect its message and warning. Postpone your day of repentance and continue in sin. Then, you would have answered the question.
Eternity in hell is sure for every sinner who refuses to repent. “Choose you this day.” Where will you spend eternity, in heaven with God? Then you must repent NOW. “He that covereth his sins SHALL NOT PROPSPER: but whose confsseth and forsaketh them SHALL HAVE MERCY” (Proverbs 28:13). “Seek ye the LORD…let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him RETURN unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him…he will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:6-7).
You must seek the Lord. How? By praying, asking for the forgiveness of all our sins. Donot hide or cover any of them. God sees you and he says you CANNOT, and will not prosper if you hide your sins now. Repentance and confession of your sins now. Repentance and confession of your sins will make you a recipient of mercy, pardon and blessings from God. Confess your sins, forsake them and turn to God because
life with God in Christ is an endless hope; life without Go I sin is a hopeless end.
Do you want the abundant life that Christ gives? God is ready to give it to you now as you repeat this simple prayer:
“Almighty God, I pray in Jesus’ name that you look down with mercy on me. A guilty sinner. Forgive my sins of….. (Name them one by one, don’t hide any). I promise, through your grave and help, never to go back into them again.
Please make me your child now and cleanse me from all sins. I give my life to Jesus Christ and accept him now s my personal Lord and savior. Thank you, o God, for I believe you have answered my prayer. In Jesus’ name I have prayed. Amen.”
Do this now as urgently as correctly as you carry out a doctor’s instruction. Turn away from all sins and decide in your heart never t go back to them. Tell God to cleanse you. He will answer immediately if you pray with faith in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. He will change your life and set your feet on the path of godliness and righteousness. Then eternity with God I heaven will be yours.
Life with God Christ is an endless hope.
Life without God in sin is a hopeless end.
