Five Minutes After Your Death
Where will you be five minutes after your death? There are only two possibilities. You will either be with Jesus in paradise or you will be in Hell, known by several other names, such as Sheol, Hades or the place of torments. A very simple choice you make before your death will determine which it will be. If you reject Jesus you will be in Hell. If you receive Him you will be in paradise. That simple choice will determine where you will be FOREVER.
1 John 5:11: And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
If you go to Hell, there will be no one to blame but yourself.
Romans 1:20: For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
If you are observant, you will notice that those who receive Jesus live different lives here on earth than those who reject Him. Those who receive Him want to please Him. Those who reject Him want to please themselves. Those who reject Jesus and those who receive Him will have a lot in common but there will also be many obvious differences. Just two differences are that those who receive Jesus can know that they are going to be with Him forever and they have joy.
1 John 5:13a: 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, . . .
Romans 8:16: The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Luke 23:39-43: And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. 40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Luke 16:19-31: There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man*s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham*s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. 27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father*s house: 28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. 29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. 30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. 31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
