Death Is A Change Of Address

Texts: Heb 9: 27; Rom 6: 23; Rev 20: 12 -15.

There are three stages in a man’s life. The first stage is the mother’s womb. Here, you are permitted to stay temporarily for an upward of nine months or thereabout. Your mother would fall into labour and you are delivered. The second stage is the earth where you are presently. In the beginning, God created man to live forever but sin terminated longevity (Gen 3: 19)
Gen 1: 27 says “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created male and female.”
Gen 2: 7 also said “And the Lord God formed man of the dust on the ground and breathed onto His nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul.”
The third stage is eternity either in Heaven where God lives, or Hell fire where Satan and all sinners will spend their eternity. Death is a change of address; death is your birthday to eternity.
There are three things that are mysterious about death:
1. You don’t know when you are going to die.
2. You don’t know where you are going to die.
3. You don’t know how you are going to die.
In the book of 1 Tim6: 7, the Bible says “For we brought nothing unto this world and it is certain we will carry nothing out.” You came to this world through the narrow part of your mother (her private part) you are going back through the narrow part (casket or coffin).
Coffin is the same size all over the world either for the rich or the poor. You are not allowed to go with anything; you came to this world naked, you are going back naked.
Death is the beginning of your journey to eternity, life without end, life without time table and calendar; no counting of days, one million years is still the beginning of eternity.
You reader of this message, if you are not yet born again, you are taking the greatest risk of your life.
Let me tell you some few things about Hell. Rev 20: 15 says “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
1. The fire in Hell is unquenchable in the thirst of thick darkness.
2. There is no exit in Hell.
3. The agony of Hell is unexplainable.
4. Demons are there to torment people for eternity.
5. There are immortal maggots that are giving power like scorpion to bite people for eternity.
My dear reader, whatever you are going through now that makes you ignore God, can never be compared with pains and eternal sorrows that are waiting for the occupants of Hell fire. You don’t know how long your time on earth will be and you don’t know when you are going to return.
Drop that awkward way of life. Start confessing your sins.
Prov 28: 13 says “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper but whosever that confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.”
Take a step of faith and confess your sin without living any. Even if have you killed before, confess it. Don’t wait till tomorrow. It might be late. Do you know the agenda of Satan for you? If you die today with that sin, you cannot escape from the punishment in hell fire. Unfortunately for you, you cannot bribe God. You may influence the White House and bribe your way through at Aso Rock. In God’s kingdom, no impurity can pass through.
Our God is a merciful God; He will forgive you and save your soul. If you are ready, pray these prayers:
Lord Jesus, I confess my sin now; please forgive me. I have made up my mind to serve you. From today I belong to you. Thank you for saving my soul.
If this message has blessed your life, call us to share your testimony and try to attend some of our programmes.
I am curiously waiting to celebrate with you for your new decision. We have brought nothing to this world and surely we will go with nothing. The greatest joy is the reality of the marriage supper of the lamb which we will surely be together.
May God Bless You.
See you when you get there.
