The Decision Is Yours: Eternity in Heaven or Hell :: By Geri Ungurean

The analogy between the Ark which God commanded Noah to build for him and his family; and the Savior of the world who God sent to earth to die for your sins and then to be raised on the third day is truly astounding.

Have you rejected Christ in your life?

Your opinion of Jesus and rejection of his offer of Eternal Life will seal your fate. All other so-called religions offer false hopes. Hinduism offers reincarnation as a way of “bettering” yourself in your next life.  This is a lie from Satan.

The Bible says this:

“And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).

You have one life. You are utterly helpless apart from our Redeemer Jesus Christ. He paid the price for your sins, and made a way for you to be in heaven with the Father because of His Righteousness.

No one can work their way to heaven! How many good works are enough?  This is futile, and God wants you to know that He is waiting for you. He does the saving – not us. Do not believe the lies you have been told about God.  I am telling you the truth.

Our “works” before we are saved

Because of the Holiness of the Lord; and because He cannot abide sin in His presence – here is what He says about our so-called good works as we attempt to make it into heaven on our own:

“We are all like an unclean thing,
And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags;
We all fade as a leaf,
And our iniquities, like the wind,
Have taken us away” (Isaiah 64:6).

Am I saying that good deeds are bad?  Not at all.  After we agree with our Lord that we are sinners and are in need of a Savior (Jesus) then our good works and deeds come out of a grateful heart towards God and toward others.

 When we are born again (saved) the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Godhead) comes to reside within us. We are no longer captives to sin. Does this mean that we will never sin?  Unfortunately, we are still in this flesh. Our flesh wars against the spirit. But the Bible says:

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

Even the great Apostle Paul struggled with this:

Romans 7:15-20

 “For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do.  If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good.  But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.  For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.  Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.”

Those who belong to Christ will be Raptured and receive new bodies

When the “Rapture” happens, we who are in Christ will receive new and indestructible bodies. We will see Jesus face to face.  Those who have “died in Christ” will be raised first, and then all of us who are in Christ will be gathered up to heaven with our Lord Jesus. We will never  be separated from Him again.

Those who reject Christ, have made a decision to be in hell for Eternity

I’ve heard numerous times from unbelievers this:  “If God is good, He would not send people to hell.”  He sends no one to hell!  He did send His only begotten Son, Jesus, to earth  to die an horrific death on the Cross. He sacrificed His Son because of His love for us. He made a way for us to be reconciled to Him in heaven. If a person goes to hell, they have sent themselves there.

Many love Darkness more than Light

There are people in this world who would reject Christ right to his face – knowing full well that they are destined to be in hell for eternity.  I have often said in my articles that I don’t believe there are true “atheists” – I think that these people are God haters.  Read what the Bible says about this:

 “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;  being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;  who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them”   (Romans 1:28-32).  (emphasis added)

It is all up to you

You see all around you wars and threats of wars; natural disasters and other catastrophes.  Do you think that these are  just random events?

Read what the Bible says about the beginning of the end of days

The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age

 “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of sorrows”  (Matthew 24:3-8).

If you do Not receive Christ as your Savior – you will be here for the Great Tribulation

Read what the Bible says about the Great Tribulation 

“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened” (Matthew 24: 21-22).

Choose Life

Forget all of the lies you have been told throughout your life. The lie of evolution is one of the most diabolical lies ever told.  You were created by God in His image. You did not evolve. You were never a monkey. God loves you.

Look around you at the beauty of this world. Just look at a perfect rose, or into the smiling eyes of a baby.  Look at the night sky twinkling with stars made by God. He has named each star – did you know that?

Hopefully, you are wondering what you should do to be saved.  Click this link and read the way to be born again from above. Make sure that you are sincere in this decision – God cannot be mocked.  He knows whether your intentions are genuine or not.

I pray that you are ready to relinquish your life to Jesus Christ. This is the most important decision you will ever make:
