If your life were to end this very day, are you ready? If Jesus took all of His followers on this earth to be with Him today which He will one day do, are you ready? If one way or the other, today you would stand before the Lord Jesus Christ, are you ready?
No matter what you believe, THE TRUTH is you will spend forever in torment in hell and the lake of fire apart from God with no opportunity to do your life over again OR you will be with the Lord forever in the new heavens and the new earth – what we typically call heaven – in everlasting blessedness and blissfulness face to face with God almighty in a place with perfect love, peace, joy, freedom, etc.
One or the other. Which will it be? And are you ready to stand before the Lord this very day? There are TWO TRUTHS you must know! Here they are.
One, the ONLY way to heaven is through the Lord Jesus Christ. Per the Bible, which is God’s truth, “you must be born again.” There is no other way. You must be born again spiritually by receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life. Believe He is Lord, that He died on the cross to pay your sin penalty and was raised from the dead. Turn from your sins and from living for yourself according to the world’s ways to the Lord and His ways.
Second, HOW YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE on this earth as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ will determine your experience in heaven. It will determine YOUR REWARDS in heaven – or the ones you will miss out on.
I have TWO QUESTIONS for you, friend.
• Have you repented and received Jesus Christ as Lord whereby you are born again, forgiven by God, and promised eternal life, and received the indwelling of God’s Holy Spirit?
• Are you totally devoted to Jesus Christ as Lord whereby you are filled with and led by the Holy Spirit and read and live by the Bible and are yielding yourself to and being transformed by God as He prepares you for eternity with Him?
May this be true for us all! Surrender, surrender, surrender all to the Lord each and every day!
Jesus says in the Bible, “You must be born again.” But you must not stop there! Make absolutely certain the Lord and loving Him and living for Him and being filled with and led by His Holy Spirit according to His Word, that this is #1 in your life every breath that you take for the rest of your life! Amen!
Lord, please take this message and use it mightily in all of our hearts and lives, AMEN!
“Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”” John 3:3-8
“For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.” Matthew 16:27
“”And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.” Revelation 22:12
I encourage you to search the Bible online or in a concordance for Bible verses concerning reward(s) given those who will spend eternity with the Lord. The greatest reward, of course, is the Lord Himself and being with Him forevermore!
