Have You Considered Eternity?

Seriously, Have You Considered Where Your Soul Will End Up?

“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. ” -1 John 5:13(KJV)

Today we live in such a fast-paced society, our lives filled with getting this or that, going here or there or seeing this or that. We seem to be in constant motion and never stop and smell the roses, as the saying goes. Our work inundates our days and our families seem to quite frequently siphon any remaining time each day away from us. Not that this is a bad thing but it is nevertheless a reality. We eat, we sleep, we go day after day. Planning for things seems to be a last minute thought; whether trips, vacations or whatever preparing for them kinda ends up on the back burner.


Let me as you a question. When you take a vacation or are prepare to go to a specific destination, do you take the time and plan the trip or perhaps you just hop in the car, train, bus or plane and just head out? Most likely not. Maybe you spend tons of time over where you are going and how you will get there; putting things to paper, in files, folders, on the computer and tweaking them ever so carefully. Maybe you converse with a travel agent and get all the specifics of your trip, maybe you research the location and surrounding area, demographics, etc using the Internet. At any rate, you most likely exhaust all efforts to know about where you are going and how you will get there. So it is with eternity. Some believe that eternity does exist and others believe that we will have lived a complete lifetime only to be annihilated into nothing when we die.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” -John 6:47 (KJV)


Please let me assure you that according to the Bible eternity exists and everyone will enter it but only once. The Bible is the sure word of God, His inerrant authoritative voice that has resounded throughout the history of mankind. It is true and it has proven to be correct one-hundred percent of the time. So let’s put this eternity thing into some perspective. Our life span here on earth can be on average 70-80 years, some less, some more but without doubt it is limited and we will eventually die. James 4:14 says that our life is but a vapor, a wisp of smoke. In that light you can also liken it to a bus stop; a very temporary time frame compared to eternity which lasts forever.

“For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” -Gal 6:8 (KJV)

So let’s get back to planning your vacation or trip. You would probably spend a bunch of time preparing for it, knowing as much as you can about where you’ll visit, how long you’ll stay, how much you’ll spend, etc. Can I ask then why many people today even church-going, Bible-tote’n Christians seem uninterested in their trip to eternity and talk little about it. Is it because most are afraid to talk about death? You know it comes down to this – our deaths are a very present reality of this life. We will die and we will step into eternity so why don’t we prepare for it? Why don’t we know more about it and where it is we will go when we get there? Eternity consists of the two doors talked about above and the duration of your stay will be forever. No coming back, no redo’s once you get there, no saying, “oops, I made the wrong choice”. It’s final and it’s finished. You go through one of the two doors and that’s it.


Now we’re talking! Our eternal destination – the two doors – can only find us in one of two places – heaven or hell. That’s it, no waiting room somewhere in the ethereal or no purgatory as some false religions preach. It’s heaven or it’s hell. So considering our discussion so far, where do you think you will go? What door will you walk through and let me remind you once you are in you can’t come back out -Luke 16:26. If you are unsure then today is the day you should make up your mind. Remember, we have no guarantee of even our next heart beat or breath. Any of us could die at any time and then we instantly face eternity. That’s it, it’s the no-kidding, you-don’t-hear-this-in-church truth! But if you want to go into God’s rest – the heavenly door – then you must confess and believe on Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior as described in Romans 10:9-10. You must call on His name sincerely.


The other door is … if you want to go into hell, a place designed for the Devil and his fallen angels then all you have to do is … NOTHING! Just do absolutely nothing and you will end up there. That’s right! Just keep rejecting God, rejecting His Son’s free gift of salvation and eternity with Him. Just keep living your life in an unholy and profane manner, doing your thing, living for your idols with your sights on the pleasures of this life. Just keep standing at the bus stop, the bus will finally come for you and take you away.


Folks, this is serious. It’s time to stop playing games with God and get right with Him. This world is quickly falling apart and end time prophecies are coming to pass in increasing numbers. These are the last days before Jesus Christ returns and accordingly God’s wrath is coming. Read your Bible, read the prophecies and warnings about the sinful, unrepentant state of mankind against a holy and righteous God. Please, I urge you today to make a decision for Christ and then share this gift with your friends and family. Eternity is a long, long time, in fact, a time without an end.

“For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” -2 Cor 5:1 (KJV)
