In Happiness or In Torment?

The soul is immortal it can never cease to be. It is destined by the immutable decree of God, to exist eternally.  O eternity! Who can conceive your dimensions!  Forever! Who can grasp the mighty idea!         To exist forever solemn consideration!

Millions of
ages as numerous as the stars in the skies, as the sands on the seashore, as blades of grass on the surface of the globe, as leaves which fall from the trees in autumn are as nothing in comparison with eternity!  But where shall we exist? How will eternity be spent by us? In happiness or in torment?

That will entirely depend upon the character, the state, the condition in which we live and die. If we live in sin, if we serve self and Satan, if we die accursed then we must suffer the due desert of our deeds in eternal Hell. But if we believe in Jesus, if we live unto God, if we die under His blessing, then we shall possess and enjoy glory, honor and eternal life in Heaven and these forever!

Let the solemn fact that
you are immortal, deeply impress your mind. Try to realize the overwhelming thought, "I must live forever! I must live forever in unspeakable happiness or inconceivable misery! My eternal state depends on my present state. If I live unconverted, then I must die accursed, I am lost, and once lost, lost forever!"  O eternity! Tremendous sound! Incomprehensible idea!

[James Smith]


Matthew 25:46 ... And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Romans 8:6 ... For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Psalm 90:12 ... So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.❤
