Ever wonder what happens when you die? If you were to die today, do you know where you will spend eternity? Will you go to heaven? Do you want to be certain?
I’m glad you’re curious. I want to see you be 100% certain! If you believe what the Bible says, you have to understand 1 John 5: 11-12 that says: “And the testimony is this, God has given us eternal life and this life is in His son. He who has the son, has life, he who does not have the son, does not have life.”
The Scriptures are clear that we were born with sin (Romans 3:23), and like a Grand Canyon gap, we stand on one side and God is on the other; sin separates us. If you read the Old Testament, redemption of sin was given when a person laid their hands upon a pure lamb, confessed our wrong doings, and then offered it as a blood sacrifice. But God in His love for us, sent His son to be that blood sacrifice for us. When Jesus died, he conquered death by rising on the third day and offers that same gift to us—if we receive it.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
John 3:16-17 NIV
We are all promised eternal life, the question is where will we spend it? If Heaven is real, so is hell. The good news is, we get to choose.
