The Fire’s of Hell – or, ~ ‘Home’
The Bible leaves no doubt that there is life after death. Humanity is created for eternity. The earthly life is but an overture, a prelude of the reality to come. Blessed, Happy, to be envied – are the dead ‘who die in the Lord’. They are the people who during their earthly life believed in Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord. When they exchange the temporal for the eternal, their work is done forever. They finally have rest. All the troubles and tensions of their existence are behind them. They have arrived at their eternal destination. They are finally HOME!
The Scriptures paint a frightening alternative for people who do not seek God during their lifetime. ‘and the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever’. There is no rest day or night’. (Revelation 14:11)
What a contrast.
The dead who die in the Lord not only enjoy eternally the absence of unrest, pain and sorrow, but they also are rewarded. ‘Their deeds will follow them’.
Human beings are free to live their lives according to their own choices. But thy have to keep in mind that there will be a future settling of accounts. All will justly be rewarded according to their deeds. The measuring staff will be administered according to their attitude toward the Lod Jesus Christ.
True rest awaits only those who during their life on earth took God seriously. Without Him there is no real rest, in the present or in the future.
Have a blessed day today!
