On the subject of Halloween, zombies, ghouls, and of course, death… I had heard something interesting while listening to a sermon this morning on the radio by Skip Heitzig where he was talking about death. It’s not a very uplifting subject to ponder upon but it is something that will open up your eyes and help you realize what is going on around you in the world today.
Skip had mentioned when people have near death experiences, they come back telling their story of seeing a bright light at the end of a tunnel thinking that’s seeing God. The entertainment industry also helps push the idea with portraying the image of family members who had passed welcoming them into heaven and going into a bright white light as if going toward heaven and seeing God with movies such as Ghost or The Sixth Sense.
Scripture says in 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” What better way to bring false hope to people thinking they are all going to heaven than to pretend to be the light of Jesus!
My husband turned on a light bulb on in my head saying “that’s why everyone thinks they will go to heaven even though they aren’t Christians.” But the truth is only a few people will.
Romans 10:9 says, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” –And only then are you saved.
You might be going to see Jesus but you will be judged and you won’t be allowed into the gates of the Kingdom of Heaven because you have not accepted Jesus as your savior.
So educate your family and friends about this message and pray for them to accept Jesus and His Truth. Don’t let them assume all is good at the end of their journey here on earth but truly and lovingly accept Christ as Lord and savior.
Did you think everyone was going to heaven after they passed? What are your thoughts?
