WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE WILL HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU DIE TODAY?
You could answer this question in the following six ways.
I do not know. I think life begins and ends on the earth.
Humanists claim there is no God. When we die, there is nothing.
I believe in Soul sleep
“Soul sleep” is the belief that after a person dies, his/her soul “sleeps” until the resurrection and final judgment. The concept of “soul sleep” is not biblical. Until the final resurrection, there is a temporary heaven called “Paradise” (Luke 23:43; 2 Corinthians 12:4). The temporary hell is known as “Hades” (Revelation 1:18; 20:13-14). In Jesus story of the rich man and Lazarus the beggar in Luke 16:19-31, no one in Hades is sleeping.
I think I will go to Heaven if I do good things or I may go to hell because I do bad things.
There seems to be an idea commonly accepted by many people that when they die they would meet St. Peter at the gate. Based on their behaviors on earth Peter will determine whether they can go to heaven or must go to hell. Unfortunately, too many people feel that the Bible teaches that going to heaven or hell is based on how many “good” or “bad” things they’ve done.
I believe in reincarnation.
Reincarnation is the idea that after we die, we return repeatedly for multiple lives. Life is a cycle of coming and going, birth and death. Many believe that a good and blessed life is a reflection of how well we behaved in previous lives. The better we were, the farther up the life chain we return.
I believe in Purgatory
The idea behind Purgatory is that many people are not good enough to go straight to heaven. They are placed in a “waiting tank” until enough people pray for them so that they can get out of purgatory and on to Heaven. Purgatory is never mentioned in the Bible. It is mentioned in one of the apocryphal books that were written by the Jews for the first century. The Jews do not accept this book as divinely inspired. Unfortunately, it is seen as Scripture by the Roman Catholic Church. It did not make it into the actual Canon of the 27 books of theNew Testament.
I don’t care
Life is too busy to even think about what will happen after death. Or I am so content in life that I just want to take it one day at a time. Death comes without any warning. No matter how busy or content you are, Heaven and Hell really exist, and before it is too late, we implore you to research religious views and read the Bible to know the truth.
Death is on the back burners of everyone’s minds from preschoolers to the oldest adult.
We want to present to you an important truth from the Bible. Life does not end on the earth here and we cannot live ignorantly thinking that our good deeds will lead us to heaven.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ can be shortly explained as follows:
God created us to be with Him
Our sins separate us from God.
Sins cannot be removed by good deeds.
Paying the price for our sin, Jesus died and rose again.
Everyone who trust in Him has eternal Life
Life with Jesus starts now and lasts forever.
So what do you understand from this?
The beginning step to having a right relationship with God is admitting that we have sinned against God and are in need of forgiveness.
The wages of sin is death. Jesus Christ died once and for all in our place for our sins. We need to only believe in Jesus that He died in our place and therefore, our sins are forgiven by faith so that we may have eternal life with Him (that is, live eternally in heaven with Him once He comes back again)
God hears the prayer of faith, trusting in Christ’s shed Blood on the Cross, for salvation and cleansing from one’s sin. Call on the Lord in prayer, to save you from your sin. Ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and cleanse you with His precious blood. The prayer of faith will be heard, and you will be born into the family of God by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Prayer for Salvation:
“Our Father In Heaven, I know that I have sinned against you. I have done things that are wrong in your sight! I know that you sent Your Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the Cross for my sins. I do believe, that Jesus died for me, that He was buried and that He rose again on the third day, to show that He was all-powerful over sin and death. I repent of my sins and invite Jesus Christ to come into my life as my Savior. I ask for the cleansing of His precious blood that He shed on the cross, to wash away my sin before God’s Holy Presence. I confess Jesus Christ as my Savior and my Lord. By Your Grace, I choose to receive your gift of eternal life and ask that Your Holy Spirit change me to be Your Child and fill me with His Presence. Thank You, Heavenly Father, for Your Mercy and Salvation, which gives me this supernatural opportunity to be born again into Your Heavenly Family.
In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!”
