Life After Death. What if?
Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. The afterlife, Over Jordan, Heaven... What is it like? What if...What if someone doesn't believe in Jesus? The Bible gives us a few personal accounts of what... of what... Hell is like. The Bible refers to man as a Worm; Job 25:6 How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm? Psalm 22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people. Isaiah 41:14 Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. And the Bible makes a reference to people in Hell; Mark 9:44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. Jesus gives us a personal account of someone who dies and wakes up in Hell. Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. Luke 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. Luke 16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. The account that Jesus is referring to is not someone in the future, but someone who has died and has entered into the afterlife. Jesus is the way to heaven. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: If we do not trust in Jesus then he will say to us; Mat 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
