Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, Steve McNair, Karl Malden, Harve Presnell, Billy Mays, Fred Travalena, Gale Storm have died…and that’s in the last week or so.
‘He was a great person’, ‘She loved everyone’, ‘He was so generous’; on and on and on. It’s funny…I remember doing the same thing; just because someone is rich and famous they instantly go to Heaven when they die. The rest of us grunts have to work at being good enough to go. What isn’t so funny is that the majority of people actually still believe that.
I ask you this: If you died today, where would you go? Each one of us has an eternity to choose. I say choose wisely.
Right now, there is a Hell full of people that NOW believe in Jesus Christ and NOW understand the Revelation of his Birth, Death and Resurrection. If they had believed that in the first place, they would be with Him NOW instead of a fiery Hell. Eternity is FOREVER.
All of the celebrities that I mentioned are lauded as people that have done great things and deserve Heaven. I assure you, no one deserves Heaven; but One died for us so that we would never taste death and know everlasting life. If any of the people I named knew the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour, they will be in Heaven. If they did not, then they are in Hell…no matter how great or rich or generous or nice they were. There are a lot of good people in Hell because they chose to not know Jesus.
Romans 10:9 – ‘That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.’ NKJV.
Choose wisely. Choose Life. Choose Jesus.
