One day my beloved Mom whom I love beyond measure told me something she believed with all her heart that she was absolutely wrong about. And this was not just a little everyday life kind of issue. This in fact relates to the most important issue in the world. And I am afraid many, many people around the world are wrong about this issue, need to know the truth, need to accept the truth, and need to act on the truth immediately because for each and every one of us one day it will be too late. And there will be no turning back.
Without going into too much personal detail, my Mom essentially shared her belief that when our lives are over our bodies simply get buried in the ground and that is the end of it. No more life. No afterlife. No going anywhere. No more consciousness. No more soul. No spirit. No nothing. Our lives are finished and there is no eternity. No heaven. No hell. No God. Nothing. No forever.
My Mom is an incredibly beautiful and intelligent and successful woman in the context of this world, but when it comes to this matter of God and eternity my Mom is totally and dangerously wrong. As are many, many others maybe even people you know. Maybe even yourself. And none of us, absolutely none of us, can afford to be wrong about this.
I am compelled by the Holy Spirit of God to tell you the truth.
Friend, no matter how young or old, no matter how healthy or sick, each and every one of us will one day die, will one day be judged, and will one day end up with God forever in heaven or apart from God in forever torment in hell and the lake of fire.
We are all sinners separated from God because of our sin headed for hell. But He loved us so much He sent His only Son Jesus to the cross to die to pay our sin punishment and to raise Him from the dead. So all who turn from a lifestyle of sin to God and His ways and His will for us, believing in Jesus as Lord and in His death and resurrection, are forgiven, promised a relationship with God now on earth and forever in heaven, and the Holy Spirit comes to live in us.
This is referred to as being born again. We are born again spiritually. This is called being saved. We are saved from God’s wrath and the punishment we deserve of death, hell, and the lake of fire. We are new creations. We get a fresh start in life. Our sins are washed away. We now learn day by day to deny self, take up our crosses, and follow Jesus. We learn to live for Him.
We are to love, praise, honor, revere, fear, serve, obey, worship, experience, and enjoy God now and forever through repentance and faith and the death and resurrection of Jesus and our lives being totally devoted to Him. We are to fulfill the purpose God has for us on this earth.
Let me emphasize those who are heaven bound do not merely intellectually believe in Jesus as Lord. We are to no longer live for self according to the world’s ways and are to live for Jesus according to God’s ways. We are to live a life of humble obedience to God as we love and serve Him with all our hearts.
Sure, our fleshly bodies may get cremated. Our fleshly bodies may end up in a cemetery. We may have flowers all around our gravestones and loved ones come visit our graves. Our lives on this earth will indeed be done.
But the truth according to God almighty is that we will continue on into eternity – in heaven or in hell.
My Mom was wrong about this. And so are countless people around the world. Now rest assured I along with many of my friends and even numerous strangers have been praying to God for years that He would draw my family to Himself and lead them to repentance and save them for eternity to spend forever with Him instead of eternity in hell and the lake of fire.
With every ounce of my heart, to all you who ever come across this message, and to all with whom I ever come in contact, and to all around the world I absolutely beg you with the love of Jesus right now this very day this very hour even as you read this to turn from your sins, believe in Jesus as Lord and in His death and resurrection, commit your life genuinely to God and His ways, ask God to forgive you, save you, and fill you with His Holy Spirit, and spend the rest of your time on this earth being totally devoted to Jesus. Living humbly and wholly and forever for God!
We do not know when we will draw our last breath on this earth. One day it will be too late. Now is the time to cry out to God to save you and give you the promise of everlasting life with Him!
Please will you pass this message onto others? There is no more important truth in the world than what God almighty has compelled me to share with you in this message. Please don’t hold it to yourself. Please pass it along so that more and more will hear and turn to the Lord! Amen!

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

“which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer; since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.” 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10 NKJV
