Ecclesiastes 3:11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.”
Are you prepared for an eternity? A simple question most people around you could not answer in full honesty. The question asks are you prepared to meet God in other words. Those who do not believe there is a God have deluded their minds into denying this fact so they would say there is nothing to prepare for. They will be sadly mistaken on Judgment Day. They would be most likely preparing only for retirement or their kids soccer tournament next week or a career move or some other worldly adventure, that’s as far as the preparations in their life will go.
Those encapsulated in a world religion such as Roman Catholicism cannot answer this question honestly. Since humanism teaches that eternal life depends solely on you to complete the process, there is doubt and uncertainty whether you will achieve all the necessary things supposedly needed for final justification in front of God, the things Jesus left supposedly unfinished. Sadly, this is how a Catholic prepares, it is by self-centered, self-righteousness, and self-governance.
So what is the proper way to be prepared for eternal life? You must first place your faith alone in the person and work of Jesus Christ. You could never be prepared without this faith as Romans 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”
Do you see this friend?? It is IMPOSSIBLE to please God without faith! And this faith is in God alone. You cannot please God by church attendance, rituals, smoke, incense, non-genuine repetitious prayers, prayers to others, faith in others, faith in human beings, but faith in Him alone! So it is FAITH which prepares a sinner for an eternity. Without faith there is no preparation, you are fooling yourself. Misplaced faith is also fooling yourself.
Those with saving faith in Jesus Christ alone have come into His peace and His rest, there is now NO condemnation for those in Him (Ref: Romans 8:1). So by God’s grace they are now PREPARED for an eternity with Him to God’s glory alone!
Without this preparation, depression, anxiety, the tossing and turning of worldly nonsense and sadness overwhelms the sinner. You simply are fighting the inevitable, the day you will stand before God. Without Jesus Christ as your only Mediator, that day will greatly multiply your depression, anxiety, sadness, etc. when He says “depart from Me”.
“Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts” (ref: Hebrews 3:15)
Place your faith alone in Jesus Christ today! LEAVE those world religions and world endeavors today, kick them to the curb! You shall be in His rest and in His peace being fully prepared to meet God because it is His righteousness and His perfection you will be wearing! THIS IS GOOD NEWS!
