Watching someone die is a very sobering experience. I recall two occasions where I watched someone die. One of the people who died was a Christian, one was not. One died with hope after death, one did not. However, when each of these two people died, both sets of grieving relatives spoke of how they believed their loved one's suffering would then be over.
You've most likely heard the phrase, "He's at peace now." or, "His suffering is over." However, according to the Bible, after some people die they will be cast into hell to begin an eternity of suffering and pain the likes of which no one still on earth has yet to experience.
The Bible says that some will be raised to eternal life with God in heaven while others will be raised to everlasting destruction and torment in hell.
So.....if you were to die tonight, where would you go? The Bible says...
The righteous will be welcomed into "eternal life" (Matthew 25:46).
The wicked will be cast into "everlasting fire" (Matthew 25:41).
The Bible also says that it should come as no surprise that a Holy God will punish evil and reward good. Listen to what Jesus says...
Do not marvel at this, for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves shall hear His voice, and shall come forth, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have practiced evil to the resurrection of condemnation (John's 5:28-29).
The Bible says we will all be resurrected after death! To "eternal life" or "everlasting fire".
But the 1 million dollar question is: "Are you a good person, good enough for heaven?" Will YOU be raised to the resurrection of life...... or will YOU be raised to the resurrection of condemnation?
You need to find out now, in this life, because it will be too late after you die. There will be no second chance. There will be no pleading with your creator then. The Bible says "It is appointed unto man once to die, but after this the judgement" (Hebrews 9:27).
One of the people I watched die had repented and put their faith in Jesus Christ and his death as payment for their sin. The other person (so far as I know) did not. According to the Bible, one will be at peace the other will not!
Since you will die one day, it is vitally important that you give serious thought to the question of "Is Hell Real" becasue if it is and if you go there, you will not be at peace, no matter what they say at your funeral!
