Summary: You do not end up as mere food for worms and fertilizer for flowers in a forgotten grave. You will be in one of two places after you take your last breath, and you will face the Sovereign LORD, either as Savior or Judge. Where do you stand on that fact?

The Holy Bible affirms that there are ONLY two places where your soul can go after death. Either you will be in heaven with God the Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the redeemed of all history, or in hell with the devil, his angels, and the wicked of all history, to be tormented throughout eternity. You can forget right now about any hope of reincarnation. Purgatory does not exist. Nirvana does not exist. There is no carnal idea of "paradise" with virgins at your beck and call, and no mere end to life as you see it in a grave pushing up daisies until the world quits revolving billions of years from now. The guru or shaman who taught you that you will have "spirit guides" to usher you into the next "higher plane of consciousness" gave you pretty words and a boost to your ego, but nothing else. You are going to come to the end of your life through some means and at a time you may not expect. The question is whether or not you are prepared when the time comes.

Whether you like it or not, or you find it "offensive", "narrow minded", "Intolerant", the fact is that the Sovereign LORD, Creator and Sustainer of all life and design, has provided only ONE way by which you can be given eternal life, peace, and redemption from your sin and rebellion against Him, and that is through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, period. it does not matter what the smiling Colgate Boys behind their TV pulpits or stages tell you. All of your "good thoughts", "possibility thinking", "best life", "power of positivity" or the idea that you are "blessed and highly favored", or a "champion" flies out the window when hit with the biblical reality of just who you are in God's sight. You will NEVER in your own strength or ability ever be able to make yourself right or acceptable towards Him. Redemption and salvation are of the LORD alone and is done so on HIS terms (Psalm 27:1, 37:39, 62:2; Isaiah 12:2, 25:9, 45:22, 52:13-53:12; John 10:9, 11:25, 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 1:18-32, 3:10-18, 5:6-11, 6:23, 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 John 5:11).You can embrace Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior right now or reject His offer of salvation and go your own way.

I am bound as a minister of the Gospel by the decree of God and His Word to warn you of what you will face at the end of your life should you continue to turn down His gift of mercy and grace. Friend, you will wind up in hell, and I will not apologize for saying so, or tell you something else to make you feel better. You will be in a horrid place of eternal fire and punishment for your wickedness and rebellion against God (Matt.25:41, 46). Hell is also described by the Lord Jesus as a place of "outer darkness" (Matt,8:1) and the Lake of Fire (Rev.19:20). If you end up in hell, you are there for good but as an unwanted guest. Hell was originally designed by God to be a place of punishment and wrath against the devil and his angels for their rebellion against God at the start of history (Isaiah 14:12-17; Ezekiel 28:11-15). Your foolish and irresponsible decision will place you there with them because you and the majority of humanity who thought the same thing all rejected the free offer of salvation through Jesus Christ (Matt.10:15; Romans 2:8-9; Revelation 21:9). Do you want to change your mind now?

If you persist in your unbelief, I need to tell you what to expect in the near future according to Bible prophecy and what you will face. By the way, you can avoid what is to come if you will surrender your life to Jesus Christ NOW. Yet, you and far too many people who may come across this plea, read it, and decide either to mock or ignore it.

One day, not too far in the future (or perhaps today), the Lord Jesus is going to appear in the clouds, announced by the trumpet of an archangel. At that moment, all the dead in Christ will rise from their graves, given new incorruptible bodies, be united with their soul, and will meet in the LORD in the air along with all those true Christians who are alive at the time, to be with Him always. This is the event known as the "Rapture" of the church (John 14:1-3; 1 Corinthians 15:51-58; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 3:10). If you have given your life to Christ before this happens, you will depart this world with your brethren in Christ. If not, you are going to be left behind to endure the approaching judgment and wrath of God, and the horrors of unbridled evil called the "Tribulation" (Revelation, Chas.6-18).
