After Life / macklatestupdate

This life is not all there is. Life on earth is just the dress rehearsal before the real production. You will spend far more time on the other side of death ---in eternity--- than you will here. Earth is the staging area, the preschool, the tryout for your life in eternity. It is the practice workout before the actual game; the warm-up lap before the race begins. This life is preparation for the next.

You have inborn instinct that longs for immortality. This is because God designed you, in his image, to live for eternity. Even though we know everyone eventually dies, death always seems unnatural and unfair. There is life after Death one day your heart will stop beating. That will be the end of your body and your time on earth, but it will not be the end of you. Your earthly body is just a temporary residence for your spirit. The Bible calls your earthly body a “tent,” but refers to your future body as a “house.” Bible says, “When this tent we live in--- our body here on earth – is torn down, God will have a house in heaven for us to live in, a home himself has made, which last forever.”

While life on earth offers many choices, eternity offers only two: HEAVEN or HELL. Your relationship to God on earth will determine your relationship to him in eternity. If you learn to LOVE and TRUST God’s Son, Jesus, you will be invited to spend the rest of eternity with him. If you reject his love, forgiveness, and salvation, you will spend eternity apart from God forever.

If  your time on earth were all there is to your life. I would suggest you start living it up immediately. You could forget being good and ethical, and you wouldn’t have to worry about any consequences of your actions. You could indulge yourself in total self-centeredness because you actions would have no longer-term repercussions. But and this makes all difference DEATH is not the end of you! Death is not your termination, but your transition into eternity, so there are eternal consequences to everything you do on earth. The most damaging aspect of contemporary living is short vision eternity continually in your mind and the value of it in your heart. Words have not been invented that could possibly convey the experience of eternity. The Bible says, “No mere man has ever seen, heard or even imagined what wonderful things God has ready for those who loves the Lord.”

However, God has given us glimpse of eternity in this world. We know that right now God is preparing an eternal home for us. In heaven we will be reunited with loved ones who are believers, released from all pain and suffering, rewarded from our faithfulness on earth, and reassigned to do work that we will enjoy doing. God has a purpose for your life on earth, but it doesn’t end here. His plan involves far more than the few decades you will spend on this planet. It’s more than “the opportunity of a lifetime”

If you have a relationship with God through Jesus, you don’t need to fear death. It is the door to eternity. It will be the last hour of your time on earth, but it won’t be the last of you. Rather than being the end of your life, it will be your birthday into eternal life. Our time on earth is just a blink of an eye, but the consequences of it will last forever. The deeds of this life are destiny of the next. We should be “realizing that every moment we spend in this  earthly bodies is time spent away from our eternal home in heaven with Jesus.” Actually it would be wiser to live each day as if it were the last day of your life.  Matthew Henry said, “It ought to be the business of every day to prepare for our final day.” If we want to have eternal life with Jesus in His Kingdom. That’s why we need  to accept His words and believe what he promise to enjoys with Him forever.
