Warning people can offend (sorry, but it’s for your own good).

We are eternal beings, and our souls live forever. Most modern men think that if they are good, honest and kind then, assuming there is a heaven, they will get in on their own merits. Sadly, this is a common belief and the bible refers to this as self righteousness . The answer, by the way, is simple - You only enter the kingdom of God through His Son. 1 John 5:12 tells us plainly: He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. Jesus himself judges each of us on Judgement day, and if your   name in the Lamb’s Book of Life, you are welcomed into Heaven. If your name is not in the Lamb’s book of life you are cast away. Matthew 25:46 (NIV)  - “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” That eternal punishment is the Lake of Fire. The   Devil   is   real   folks . Although he is not in charge of Hell. His job, as he sees it, is to convince the world that he does not exist - he has done a good job of that recently! He simply wants as many people to turn from God as possible. He does not need worship himself, he does not care about that at the moment - he is here to deceive and get as many as possible on that Wide Road to Perdition. Quite frankly, you are probably on it right now! (I did say ‘warning people can offend!) The Devil will convince many to follow false religions, be atheists, new age, do yoga, be self righteous - many that believe that all they have to be is good, moral people and they will get into heaven. Sorry, but they will all hear those dreadful words from the lips of our Lord Jesus on the day of Judgement see Matthew 7:21-23 - look that up - Online Bible link on the Useful Link page. The Devil deceives in mundane ways. The following may sound like nonsense, but it is the truth. How many people do you know that now do Yoga? All those nice folks are encouraging the spirit of enlightenment (light bearer) to wrap itself around their spine - wrapping through the ‘shakras’ to illuminate their ‘third eye’. Interesting fact that the light bearer is mentioned in the Bible - his Latin name is used there - Lucifer (Light Bearer).. So that’s just a quick example of how he keeps those ‘worldly’ people deceived. They are sadly on the Wide Road to ** Perdition (we are trying to reach them though!!) What about those who know Christ? Well, like the rich man who always wants ‘just a little more’, the Devil comes after believers and we are warned time and time and time again “DO NOT BE DECEIVED”. False doctrines are everywhere. They started way back in 325AD - that long ago! That will be for another website - i will post the link when I’ve finished it HERE. In the meantime:- Please, always check what you are told with what the Bible says. No matter who tells you, always check for yourself. Many churches do not even open their Bibles these days. Here are some passages from the bible that mention hell ......... Matthew 10:28 - Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 2 Thessalonians 1:8-10 8 - He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our LORD Jesus. 9 They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the LORD and from the glory of his might 10on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. Matthew 5:22 - But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, 'Raca,' is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell. Revelation 21:8 (NIV)8 - But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” Psalm 9:17 (NIV)17 - The wicked go down to the realm of the dead, all the nations that forget God. Matthew 25:46 (NIV)46 - “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” Here are some passages of scripture that talk about the kingdom of heaven and eternal life..... Revelation 21:1-5 1- Then I saw "a new heaven and a new earth," for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Look! God's dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4'He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." 5He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true." John 14:2 (NIV) - My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 1 John 2:25 - This is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life. John 17:3 - "This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. John 3:36 - "He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.." ** Perdition noun a state of eternal punishment and damnation into which a sinful and unrepentant person passes after death.
