Your Life is Not Over When You Die

Your Life is Not Over When You Die

Whether a person believes it or not, God did create us. Every person God made was his decision to create and place into this world through an earthly man and woman. You didn’t get to choose how you got here, but after you were born and given the breath of life and began to grow, you started to make choices that would affect your life and that of others as well. There is an appointed time to leave, the Bible tells us in Hebrews 9:27. Check it out and see for yourself.

Some people hasten the process because of choices they make, but the bottom line is that there is an end to life. Our outward bodies die, but what drives us, our spirit, goes to God. But that is still not the end, because when you look back at Hebrews 9:27, it also says, “and then when we die, the judgment comes.”

Just because when we die our spirit goes to God doesn’t mean we stay there; it is only a connecting point, for we make a connection to eternity, Heaven or Hell. The choices we made while we were here on earth determine which connection we will make. See, life is only over here when you die, but it just begins forever afterwards.

I’ve studied several people’s look at life after death on earth and believe what the Bible says in Matthew 7:14, “Narrow is the gate [to heaven]...” The way to heaven will cost those who go there some of the joys of this world, but to have joy for eternity in heaven…what a trade-off!

I’ve also heard it said by teachers of the Bible- and I believe it could very well be true- that the earth will give a tithe of the people to heaven. That means 10% of the people will make the heavenly connection while 90% will take the other.

Matthew 7:14 goes on to say that those who pass through the narrow gate to heaven are very few. Yes, no one can pinpoint for sure how it really works at the end of one’s life, but why bargain with it now for the eternal future to come?

There is only one way to make it- through the narrow gate- and it is found in places like John 3:16, Acts 17:29-31, John 8:12, and the list goes on. If you want it, the decision is yours today, but it may not be tomorrow.
