A universal truth and decision....

"All things come alike to all: One event happens to the righteous and the wicked, To the good, the clean, and the unclean; To him who sacrifices and him who does not sacrifice. As is the good, so is the sinner; He who takes an oath as he who fears an oath." -Ecclesiastes 9:2

The context of this passage is speaking about the universal truth of death. All of us will physically die, regardless of who we are, where we come from, or what we do. We all die because we are all sinners under the curse of sin from Genesis 3 with our earliest ancestors, Adam and Eve.

Since death is an indisputable fact, we have another question to answer - what happens when we finally meet our own death?
God's Word says we all live on spiritually - which will be a coherent, experienced, conscious reality. According to God's Word, we will not cease to exist, we will not float in an unconscious state, we will not sit in a purgatory or spiritual jail until reaching perfection, nor will we reincarnate as something or someone else.
We will die once and then receive a very real judgment (Hebrews 9:27).

After the judgment, there are one of two places we will go, which will already be set at death anyway - Heaven or Hell - and eventually the eternal Lake of Fire OR the eternal New Kingdom of God.

One thing, one life decision, separates these two destines - did you repent of your sins and put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Redeemer? Did you count the cost of what it would mean to turn your life over to Jesus as the new Lord of your life and still choose to do it? Did you trust in Jesus alone as your only hope to wash your sins clean and renew your broken relationship with the God the Father?

One decision while you still have breath in your lungs.
One decision while you still have a beating heart.
What will you do with Jesus?

This one decision changes everything for you after death.
What will you do with Jesus?
