AFTER DEATH, WHAT THEN?

Read more about Judgment Day. -Admin-

Revelation 21:1-5

As it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment. Hebrews 9:27

He was born in a rural Southern community in 1890. He worked as a farmer and carpenter, living in a house that was without electricity or plumbing for many years. He suffered a stroke while plowing behind a mule. Partially paralyzed for several years, he died quietly in 1963. He is buried in a small cemetery in the far corner of a pasture.

Driving down a crowded interstate late at night, he nodded off. He would not awaken again. His car hit an embankment. At age seventeen, his dreams came to an abrupt end.

Death happens in many ways and at many ages, but it always happens. Is that the end for the farmer who never traveled more than few miles from his home, for the teenager who never got his high-school diploma? Is it the somber conclusion of man?

Thankfully and wondrously no. Physical death is not final. Consciousness does not cease in the casket. But we won’t have a second or third chance. We won’t come back as a cantaloupe, a cow, or a comedian.

The Bible says we die once (Hebrews 9:27). We will then live forever in heaven with God, OR in hell away from God (Luke 16:19-26). Do you know where you will spend eternity?

Lord, thank You for assurance of my eternal destiny.
