Things to do before you die



What does the Bible say about any events that happen after you die?

If this was the last day of my life would I be prepared to meet God? What would I expect?

If I were on the threshold between heaven and hell; would I be able to escape Hell and is hell real; and would I be able to get into Heaven?

Would I have any say that would help determine my faith?


Biblical research in the Word of God on this subject contains much information about this very important subject. First, the Bible is clear that the decision to accept Jesus Christ has to be made before you die. After you die there is no second chance, no reincarnation or no opportunity to state your case and plead your way into Heaven. Once you face Jesus, the judgement will have already been set. It will be no good to try to explain about all the good deeds you had done, the church you belonged to, how you tried to obey the ten commandments or that you were baptised at some time in your life. None of these things can earn you any right into Heaven.

The Bible is clear that doing good deeds or works does not earn you a right into Heaven. Their is no scripture that says that being a member of any Church gives you any right to Heaven. No one has ever fully obeyed the ten Commmandments; everyone has done someting wrong at times and the Bible is clear that if you commit even one sin it is the same as if you committed them all. The Bible says that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"

What Jesus wants and as explained in the scriptures is that it is not of anything we can do to earn a right into Heaven; but it is only by receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life. Jesus wants you to recieve Him into your heart, now while alive; any opportunity you have will cease once you leave this earth.

Call on Jesus Christ today. He is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
