This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #372 titled, “Where Do You Think You Are Going?” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.
If you’re like me, there’s nothing better after a busy day than settling into a favorite chair and just sitting still. But did you know that even while sitting still, we are still traveling thousands of miles per hour? Because of the earth’s rotation and its movement within the solar system and galaxy, we are hurtling through space at unimaginable speeds.
It’s amazing that we can be moving at such a high rate of speed and not be aware of it. But, in the same way, there are many people today who are speeding through life unaffected by how quickly they are approaching eternity.
Though we are all traveling through time and space together, there are different destinies in eternity. Where will you spend eternity—in Heaven or in Hell? Just think of being in an everlasting place of perfect happiness, or in a never-ending place of pure woe. You will be in one of these forever.
To the children of God in Heaven, in the presence of their Creator and Redeemer, there will come no night, no ending of their holy joy and pleasure. But to the condemned in the pit of woe, there will never rise a star of hope on the dark horizon of their eternal night. Their destiny is fixed; they have entered the blackness of darkness forever.
Dear friend, in which of these destinies will you be for eternity? You must be in one of them; you cannot remain on earth forever. God has declared that your never-dying soul will remain forever in either Heaven or Hell.
God, Who brought you into being, in Whom you live and move, has decreed that you must exist forever. Try to comprehend forever. The open door of an eternal Heaven, and the open door of an endless Hell are both before you. God has permitted you to choose which you will enter at the end of life’s journey. But remember, the choice must be made now, not then. You must decide: where are you going?
To be prepared for that eternal Heaven, you must acknowledge that you are a lost, Hell-deserving sinner before God. You must trust His Son, Jesus Christ, Who died as a sacrifice for sinners and rose again, as your Savior. To reject, despise, or neglect the Son of God and His offer of salvation, or to try to save yourself, is to doom yourself to Hell. You do not have to be an atheist in order to perish. You do not have to be one of the “worst” sinners to be lost forever. You only have to continue as you are, neglecting God’s great salvation, to perish eternally. Stop and think! Where are you going?
God’s Book, the Holy Bible, says in John 3:36, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
Jesus Christ said in John 5:24, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.:
The Bible says in Deuteronomy 32:29, “O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!”
If you are willing to trust Jesus Christ with all of your heart so you can go to Heaven, please pray with me what is called the sinner’s prayer: Holy Father God, I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I admit that I have sinned against You and that I have broken Your Ten Commandments. I have lied before. I have stolen things before. I have lusted after people and things before. I have dishonored and disobeyed my parents. I have taken Your holy Name in vain. For Jesus Christ’s sake, please have mercy and grace upon my soul and forgive me of all of my sins, my failures, and my faults. As I now believe in Your Holy Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that He suffered, bled, and died on the cross for my sins, was buried and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to repent of my sins past. Help me to turn from my old, evil life and follow You in the new life. For it is in Your Name I pray. Amen.
