Topic: Where Will You Be After This Life?
We know that everything about this life has an end, and no one will be here forever. We all came into this world and all of us are strangers in this world and we shall all leave this world one day.
We all know that it is either Heaven or Hell fire and there is no other place ;so the big question is “Where will you be after this Life?”. I want you to understand that evil or unrighteous people can never make Heaven because Heaven is a holy place(1st Peter 1:15-16, 1st Corinthians 6:9-10).
Such people will be cast into Hell fire (Revelations 21:8).
You have to take a stand today and ensure that you are on the way towards Heaven because Hell Fire is a terrible place.
1: WARNING AND THE REQUIREMENTS
Everyone should understand that there is life after death. Our souls can never die; It lives on even after we have dropped our bodies and it goes to live eternally either in Heaven or Hell fire ( Matthew 25: 46, Revelations 21:8, Revelations 21:34).
And if you are in this world, you must know this fact that Heaven is for the righteous and that Hell fire is for the sinners. Also, you should know that one day, you must leave this world so endeavor to prepare to make Heaven because Heaven is for prepared people, not careless souls. (1st Corinthians 9:24-27).
So ,irrespective of who you are, your riches, your title, your qualifications, your children, no one in this world can be saved by these things (Hosea 4:6). So, you must make sure that while you are on Earth, you should go for the right things and go for the right way. You should go for the salvation of your soul according to the will of God (John 8:32).
We should not be careless over where we shall be after this Life. So no wonder our Lord Jesus Christ told us to be sure of one thing ( Matthew 6:33, John 3:3-7).
If you want to make Heaven, you must be born again ( Luke 10:19-20). So you must prepare to make Heaven and ensure purity on every side.
2: OUR EXPECTED RESPONSE AND THE DANGER OF NEGLECT
We all believers and unbelievers should endeavor to answer this question. We must be sure of where we will be after this Life because it matters a lot (Hosea 4:6). If you don't want to be destroyed, then you need knowledge of where you are going (John 8:32 , John 13:17). So, prepare!.
If you are a believer, you must have the assurance of salvation and be heavenly conscious just like the apostles (Luke 12:32).
So, don’t be afraid, Keep to righteousness and purity till the end ( Matthew 5:8, Matthew 25:34). And if you are not born again, you must turn away from that life and live a righteous and holy life ( Revelations 21:8, 1st Corinthians 6:9).
And only true Jesus Christ, can you be saved and make Heaven at Last (John 15:5, John 14:6, Luke 19:1).
For Sinners and Backsliders, confess your sins and accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and personal Saviour (Romans 3:23, 1 John 3: 8 & 9, 1 John 5: 17a, Isaiah 59: 1).
Sin is dangerous. It is destructive and yet almost the whole world has gone into sin.
Unbelief is sin. Selfishness is sin; Covetousness is sin, Insincerity is sin; backbiting, murmuring, speaking evil of others, these are terrible sin.
Going to native doctors, stealing from Government, stealing from companies and individuals, that is sin.
If you are among those people that are involved in fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, abortion; that is terrible wickedness.
Fighting and quarreling, smoking and drunkenness; all these are evil. Ask for the mercy of God.
Are you into polygamous marriage or you have sent away your wife or you moved away from your husband? that is sin.
Are you a woman dressing like a man or a man dressing like a woman, all that is sin.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
