What Happens the Moment After You Die?
Every day thousands of people will take their final breath
and slip into eternity, either into heaven or into hell.
Although we may never know their names
the reality of death happens every day.
What happens the moment after you die?
The moment after you die,
your soul temporarily departs from your body
to await the Resurrection.
who place their faith in Christ
shall be carried by the angels into the
presence of the Lord.
They are now comforted...
Absent from the body and present with the
unbelievers await in Hades
for the final Judgment.
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."
~ Luke 16:23a-24
"Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was:
and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it."
~ Ecclesiastes 12:7
Although, we grieve over the loss of our loved
we sorrow, but not as those who have no hope.
"For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,
even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
Then we which are alive and remain shall be
caught up together with them
in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
~ 1 Thessalonians 4:14, 17-18
While the unbeliever's body remains resting,
who can fathom the torments he is experiencing?!
His spirit screams!
"Hell from beneath is moved
for thee to meet thee at thy coming..."
~ Isaiah 14:9a
Unprepared is he to meet God!
Although he cries in his torment
his prayer offers no comfort whatsoever,
a great gulf is fixed
where no one can pass to the other side.
Alone he is left in his misery.
Alone in his memories.
The flame of hope forever extinguished
of seeing his loved ones again.
On the contrary, precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.
Escorted by the angels into the presence of the Lord,
they are now comforted.
Their trials and suffering are past.
Although their presence will be deeply missed,
they have hope of seeing their loved ones again.
Do you have the assurance that if you were to die today
you'll be in the presence of the Lord in heaven?
Death for a believer is but a doorway that opens into eternal life.
Those who fall asleep in Jesus
will be reunited with their loved ones in heaven.
Those you've laid in the grave in tears,
you shall meet them again with joy!
Oh, to see their smile and feel their touch...
never to part again!
Yet, if you don't believe in the Lord, you're going to hell.
There is no pleasant way to say it.
Soul, that includes you and me.
Only when we realize the awfulness of our sin against God
and feel its deep sorrow in our hearts
can we turn from the sin we once loved
and accept the Lord Jesus as our Savior.
" That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved."
~ Romans 10:9
Don't fall asleep without Jesus
until you are assured of a place in heaven.
Tonight, if you would like to receive the gift of eternal life
first you must believe in the Lord.
You have to ask for your sins to be forgiven
and put your trust in the Lord.
To be a believer in the Lord, ask for eternal life.
There's only one way to heaven and that's through the Lord Jesus.
That's God's wonderful plan of salvation.
You can begin a personal relationship with Him
by praying from your heart a prayer such as the following:
"Oh God, I'm a sinner.
I've been a sinner all of my life.
Forgive me, Lord.
I receive Jesus as my Savior.
I trust Him as my Lord.
Thank you for saving me.
In Jesus' name, Amen."
If you have never received the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior,
but have received Him today after reading this invitation, please let us know.
We would love to hear from you. Your first name is sufficient.
