Your Choice Today Will Determine Your Eternal Destiny :: by Don Twobears

I want to touch on a few things here that are very, very, important. Some will understand and others will be simply annoyed or confused. Some will even scoff at what is stated here, as if it is too surreal to give any credence to; still these are truths and there is Scripture to that effect. I am unable to think of a better time to understand these truths than today, as in right now.

There is a God! There is no doubt in this except in the hearts of some people. Jesus Christ has been shown to have lived here by both archaeologists and historians. Yet, there are many who  choose to show Jesus Christ as someone who was less than the Son of God. The Holy Spirit does indeed live inside each born-again believer, simply by noting the numbers of people that choose to do what is right as compared to those choosing to be evil.

There is coming a day when these scoffers will face Who they have always chosen to deny and I truly have a problem in my mind when thinking of this. It is called…sadness.

Genesis 1:27-28 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

Here is the reason that Satan and his ilk hate you and me: We were created in the image of God Almighty! The second reason is because God loves each and every one of us, despite our evil intentions and actions. We are HIS creation and we were created for a reason and with a purpose for our lives for God.

Please note, you are not required to believe this, believing something or not is up to you. What you should be aware of with this: There is an end process coming and God has said so. God will judge…YOU!

I believe in my heart that we are positioned to understand situations which affect every person on this planet. If we follow Satan and his ilk, we are being lied to because every idea that Satan puts in your head…is for the here and now—the short term; everything that will make you happy while you are alive here on earth. Satan does not want you to be thinking or considering, there is an afterlife, an eternal existence.

Satan and his ilk already know that they are destined to the lake of fire; total separation from God. The problem is this: Satan does not want to go there alone, so he chooses to lie to you and get you to go with him (A real tough guy…right?) Either way, Satan and his ilk hate God first and you second.

What better way to hurt God than to destroy or ruin the ones that God loves the most, you and me? You see, Satan and his ilk are able to make lies about God, to confuse what you are thinking, to depress you to the point of suicide before you accept Jesus Christ. Satan would rather that you die before accepting Jesus Christ and HIS Salvation through HIS blood.

Many people think they are more special than others. Where do you think this idea comes from? Satan! You see, we are all the children of our Creator God. Has it ever occurred to you that you are listening to Satan and his ilk….tell YOU LIES?

John 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

We already know that if a person is told the same LIE over and over again, the day will come when he believes that LIE to be the TRUTH. No matter what that person believes or what YOU believe, a LIE is nothing more than just a LIE. If that is indeed truth…then why do you listen to LIES?

You and everyone else already know that to run around and pillage, kill and rape…is WRONG! So, if it is wrong, then why do these people do the things that they are doing? They have been LIED to by Satan and his ilk and they believe that instant gratification is all there is. (To take what is NOT theirs, to use what does NOT belong to them, to keep whatever they like just because they like it!) And they do NOT care about whomever they hurt.

Islamic State does not care who they kill, behead, rape or use for their own purposes. Satan has LIED to them in their “holy” book, the Koran. It tells them, they are allowed to LIE to and MURDER anyone that is NOT a true Muslim or following Islam. Does this make any sense to you?

Come on people, do you NOT recognize a LIE when it is presented to you? These LIES are the property of Satan and his ilk….these people of the Islamic State…believe these LIES. Thus…their fruit…proves what they believe. It is so simple to see, my friends.

1 Corinthians 15:51-55 “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”

John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”

Those are two verses of Scripture I always have in my head and my heart, and I believe them both. Thus, I have the truth that Jesus Christ is going to save me from hell and the lake of fire. My sins have been covered by the blood of Jesus Christ, from HIS Cross on Calvary.

I have gone to HIS Cross and left my old person there; I have crucified my old self to HIS Cross and I have begged Jesus Christ to bathe me in HIS precious blood. I am now saved to heaven with my Lord and Savior, with my God forever!

One thing everyone already knows is whether they are saved to Jesus Christ or not. A day is coming when we will all face death here on earth. But the question then is this: Where will YOU go after you die? One must understand that I would rather accept Jesus Christ and know I will see heaven after I die than to follow Satan and see the lake of fire for eternity.

Most people already know that there is a life after death. That being the case, do you really want to believe the LIES of Satan and his ilk? Or would you choose the TRUTH of the Lord Jesus Christ? One way will get you eternal death and the other eternal life. You must understand, it is your choice. You will make it before you die!

This IS the only reason you are here on earth and it matters little to anyone, if you are willing to accept this or not. One day though, it will be the only thing that will matter to you!

Choose to believe what you will, do the things that matter to you the most and follow your own calling. In the end, your choice is recorded in the Lambs Book of Life; your name will be there or it won’t. Your eternity will be according to whether you name is written there or not. There is NO other way.

People can pray for you all they want until the cows come home, but your destiny in eternity is according to where your name is written or not.

John 14:6-11 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto him, ‘Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.’

Jesus saith unto him, ‘Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, show us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works sake.’”

My friends, death is like a second skin to each of us. We walk this earth never knowing if the next step will be our last or not. This I do know and I want to share it with you: If you believe and follow Jesus Christ with every step, nothing can happen to you without God’s approval. In other words you will not die until Jesus Christ calls you. How odd is that?

So…if you are a born-again Believer in Jesus Christ, you can be bulletproof, bombproof, everything-proof—just go and be the messenger that Christ has asked you to be and walk in HIS peace.
