Someone recently shared with me that they couldn't believe there was eternal life with God, that is was a fairy tale. I told them they WILL believe it one day when they are separated from Him for all eternity. They said "how can your loving God toss me away?" and I shared "it's your choice, not His...you are the one tossing away the gift of salvation. You are the one making a choice to believe in yourself."
The thing about heaven is that no one knows anything about it. But a God who has created the sunsets across our planet, the falls at Plitvice Lakes in Croatia and the beauty of a mountain stream,(not to mention the human body) is NOT going to have us spending our "forever lives" sitting on a cloud playing a harp, bored out of our minds. The wonders we will experience would blow our minds if we had any clue. Any movie Steven Spielberg has made could not even compete with what awaits us in Heaven. Will we fly? Will we see the nimbus up close? Will we swim in the oceans and not need air? Who knows? All I know for sure is I will be there and praising the God of Creation for sending Jesus to die on the cross for me personally.
Maybe someone will find this page and have questions about knowing 100% sure you will live with God for eternity. Please cmail if you do, I would love to share my faith with you. I am not belligerent, not obnoxious and I am not like the TV preachers that will try to shove it down your throat. I am not rude and will go at your own pace, sharing my own journey to Jesus with you. I am not judgmental in the sense I think I am better than anyone. I am though, 100% sure where I will spend eternity. I have not one doubt. And yes, I do believe that people who do not accept this free gift of salvation will spend eternity separated from God. But that is their choice, not God's.
Someday when the Lord returns for the Christians and people are living in confusion, thinking we were taken away by aliens or living in some jungle in a commune, maybe someone will find this page. If you do, find the book LEFT BEHIND. It's fiction but will explain where we went. Also, find a Bible and begin reading the gospel of John.
John 3:16 says "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life".
And that gives me the 100% surety I will walk with Jesus one day.
