The Most Important Decision You'll Ever Make

A day is coming when this world as we know it will come to an end. One day Jesus Christ will return. What does this mean for the unbeliever, for those who do not believe in Him? It will be a dreadful time, and although God is a loving God, there will be a day we stand before Him at the judgment seat. Those who do not have their name written in the Lamb’s book of Life will suffer punishment for eternity in Hell. I do not write this to scare you. I write this to warn you, as your decision concerning Jesus Christ is something you must consider now. Who knows if any of us will be here tomorrow?

The people of Myanmar were going about their daily business when the cyclone hit. Did any of them the day before entertain the idea that thousands would die the next day? On September 11, 2001; did the people in the World Trade Center rush off into the towers knowing a plane flown by terrorists would plow into the building? Do people know before they get into a car, they will be in a terrible accident that day which will take their life.

Matthew 16:26
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

We have nothing in this world without Jesus Christ. Nothing. Everything a person acquires will not amount to a hill of beans when they meet death. There is but one chance. Did Jesus die in vain on the cross or was it not for a reason? And was not that reason you? Yes, it was you.

I was a former atheist, of the worse kind. You know how atheists are passionate about persecuting Christianity. I was NOT like that. I thought Christianity was functional, conducive as well as other religions to promoting social order and a sense of morality for the social organism. I did not mind Christianity at all, in fact, it was good to keep structure for families, organizations, and for society. I was very comfortable with my atheism, whereas most atheists are uncomfortable. Funny how they attack Christianity more than other religions. Why is that? There is a reason.

Additionally, I enjoyed sin. I did not think about it consciously, but when confronted with the possibility that Jesus may actually be the Son of God, that Heaven and Hell may be real, I ran from it. I refused to think about it, but something in me always felt uncomfortable when I thought of Hell. What if it was real? What if I am wrong? Christianity is not an attempt to brainwash people or exert political control. Fact is, the non-believing world brainwash and exert measures to gain political control all the time. Look at history. What is relevant is God is the Highest authority.

Jesus Christ is God, and the Son of God. Ask yourself, non-believer, how this universe started out of nothing? Even a random event would need a catalyst. Before time existed, God existed. The Alpha and The Omega. “Something” cannot come from nothing. God is real, Heaven is real, and Hell is real.

Stop running today. My prayer is any unbeliever reading this will look into the gospel and consider the Truth. You don’t have to be good to receive salvation, nor worry how you will stop sin in your life now. His Spirit in you is what changes things, we cannot do it in our own strength.

Revelation 20:11-15

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
