Luke 10:27-28 KJV
"27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. 28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live."

Why do we complicate the most simple tasks in life? God did not make it hard to inherit eternal life. Here we read that Jesus challenged the scribe to answer his own question of, "Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" Jesus merely pointed the scribe to the very scriptures in which the scribe trusted in. "Thou hast answered right. This do and thou shalt live." Loving God and loving one's neighbor is pivotal to earning the reward of eternal life. We must get this one down solid, that if we are to avoid a catastrophic end, we must have love in our hearts. Without love, people are doomed to end up with demonic qualities of hatred, anger, and murder. These qualities are what causes God to send people to hell. Rid yourself immediately of these attributes before they cause you to lose everything. And why not love God and your neighbor? Love is the essence of what makes life beautiful. It is the glue that holds everyone together. Mother, daughter, friend, and brother. We all must love each other. It is the commandment of God, and as the Bible says, his commandments are not grievous.

DEATH, The Final Enemy
Written 1/27/2012

"The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death." - 1 Corinthians 15:26

Why do people we love die? Why do bad things happen to those who seemingly don't deserve it?

Hard questions are not so easy to answer. But there is an answer. If Charles Darwin were alive, he would perhaps say that only the strongest survive. An atheist perhaps would say that its all just part of the biological processes. If Buddha could talk, he would say it must be done in order for reincarnation to take place. But neither of these men could come close to giving the real answer that we all seek. That question is: WHY?

Why do people die? Why must we say goodbye to the ones we love?


Let me tell you. It's because of sin.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." - Romans 6:23

Wages are essentially what one receives for a particular job he does. You receive wages from your work. Likewise, death is the wage for the sins we commit.

"Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die." - Ezekiel 18:4

So is God to blame for death in our world? God is the author of life, as the Bible says. Would you be shocked to find out who has the power of death? Just listen to what the Bible says:

"Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil..." - Hebrews 2:14

The Devil? That Old Serpent? Yes my friend.

Did you also know that the devil was the culprit behind the sin of Adam in the beginning? As the old saying goes, the devil is in the details.

"Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" - Genesis 3:1

Ladies and gentlemen, the culprits for suffering in the world are the devil and mankind. Not God.

It basically happened like this: God gave man a choice to choose life or death. The devil tempted man. Man disobeyed God, and thus chose death.

"For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead." - 1 Corinthians 15:21

But is that it? Is death the end of all mankind? Is there no hope?

The bad news is that THERE IS NO HOPE OUTSIDE OF JESUS CHRIST. If you live your entire life for the pleasures of sin, then you will certainly die and go straight to hell.

Tell me friend, are YOU living a meaningless life without any HOPE?

"This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." - Revelation 20:14-15

Jesus told of the story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke chapter 16. Lazarus was very poor, but the rich man had more than heart could wish. He could have fed Lazarus and solved his poverty had he been compassionate. But instead, he allowed him to beg right outside of his house and die without anyone to pity him. The rich man eventually died too. The Bible says that he went straight to hell.

"Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels." - Matthew 25:41

My friend, hell is VERY REAL.

People do die.

People do go to hell.

Doubt it not.

But there is good news. God loves you and he doesn't want you to go to hell. That is why Jesus came. He came to shed his blood for the remission of our sins, that we might live through him forever.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:16

God has set before you the same exact choice he had set before Adam and Eve. He has set before you life and death...

--> Eternal life if you will believe him, and trust in Jesus.

--> And DEATH if you will not believe him, but continue living your life of sin.

Do you like to gamble? Most states in the U.S. offer lottery tickets so people can gamble. Did you know that some people will never spend a single dollar on gambling, but they will not think twice about gambling their ETERNAL SOUL.

They may think, "Oh I don't gamble. That's just foolish."

You may not gamble your money, but friend, did you know you are gambling your soul?

Just imagine walking into a casino and placing your house, your car, your family, your job, and even your next 30 years on one table. Nobody would do that, right?

But that's exactly what you are doing when you reject the gospel. You are essentially saying that you don't care what happens to your eternal soul after you die. You are placing a bet that nothing bad will happen to you after you die. Friend, people plan for their retirement everyday. And yet, you are not wanting to plan ahead for your eternal retirement? Now that is FOOLISH.

By rejecting God, you are taking the gamble of losing EVERYTHING, and having NOTHING to gain. That is one gamble NO ONE should ever make! But that is what you are doing by rejecting the gospel.

Are you a betting man? Why not make a more sure investment? Why not plan ahead for your future? Why not trust in Jesus Christ? When you trust in him, you have NOTHING to lose, and EVERYTHING to gain.

If You Died Today, Would You Go To Heaven?
