"All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate the people one from another as a Shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on His right and the goats on His left."
God the Father has made a way through Jesus for everyone to become a sheep and have eternal life. We all have been given a free will and a freedom to choose how we spend eternity. Hell is as real as heaven, and satan is as real as God. Choosing to ignore and not believe in either doesn’t change the consequences of your choices.
When Jesus Christ, the Son of God returns in all His glory with the angels, all nations will stand before Him. What a glorious day that will be for those who chose to follow Him on earth. However, for those who reject the love of God through His Son’s sacrifice to make heaven possible for all, they will hear these words:
"Depart from Me , accursed ones, enter into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels…" (Matthew 25:41
This isn’t outdated history or a fable. This is the Words of God. We have seen prophecy fulfilled to the most minute detail, and theses words will be fulfilled also. Please ponder the daily choices you are making on this earth that determine your eternity. We all have eternal life whether you like it or not, but you choose where you spend it. There are only two choices available; heaven or hell?
I must declare it was revelation and experiencing the love, mercy, and goodness of God that made me choose Him more than the fear of hell. I pray that will be true for you today.
In His love.
I am always surrounded by reminders of His love and goodness in our Blue Ridge Mountains! Cold, clear streams to stay cool, and beautiful rhododendron and mountain laurel in bloom at same time. Springtime in the mountains!
