YOU KNOW WHERE YOU WILL
day an angel will place one foot on the sea and the other on the
dry land and lifting his hand to heaven, swear by Him that
liveth forever and ever, that "Time shall be no
more"! (Revelation 10:5-6)
the sun will go out like a candle in the wind, the moon will
turn to dripping blood, the stars will fall from heaven. The sky
will roll away like a scroll and the earth will melt with
clocks of time will all stop and the 'wheel of eternity'
will begin! A thousand years will come and go - A million years
will be like a drop in the bucket and eternity's wheel will just
have begun to move!
ABOUT THE ETERNAL DESTINY OF YOUR SOUL
you ever thought about the eternal destiny of your soul? Have
you given this important matter any serious thought? You
haven’t! Then wait a minute and let me give you some FACTS.
You say that you are not interested - then, you must be a very
foolish person, not to be interested in something that involves
your most treasured possession, your own soul!
ME TELL YOU MY STORY, FOR I WAS A LOT LIKE YOU!
many years I neglected my soul's salvation, not caring to hear
anything about God or eternity. I was in good health and
physical condition, knew how to dress well, was successful in
business and felt that I could look after myself without help
one day God spoke to me. I began to read Gospel literature and I
began to THINK. God impressed upon me that, although I
knew how to get along well with people, how to look after my
body and how to make money successfully, I wasn't giving any
attention to my soul and its eternal destiny.
after a struggle with myself and the devil, I yielded my life
totally into the hands of my Maker. I invited Him to transform
it from being useless, sinful and ugly to something useful,
clean and righteous. In June 1957, in a little motel in Prince
Albert, Saskatchewan I knelt beside my bed and received new life
from Jesus Christ.
& PEACE FLOODED OVER ME - MY LIFE WAS CHANGED
life was completely changed! What joy, peace and happiness has
been mine from that date to this!
said: "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the
whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in
exchange for his soul"? (Mark 8:36-37) Your soul is the
most valuable possession in the entire world.
IS YOUR SOUL THAT IS AT STAKE! If you perish and "are
lost", you will suffer the consequences. Your father,
mother, husband, wife, children or friend will have nothing to
do or say about your fate. It will be your own personal doom!
was conveying to us the great importance of the value of the
individual soul. He said, the soul of man is priceless - beyond
the worth of money or possessions!
worth is greater than the monetary value of earthly possessions.
In other words, if you became so wealthy that you owned Canada,
USA, Asia, Europe, Africa and the Islands of the sea - if you
were the sole owner of the entire world and died in your sins,
went to hell and lost your soul, WHAT GOOD WOULD IT BE?
good are the influential friends, all the popularity, fame and
riches when your body is six feet under the sod and your soul is
burning in a devil's hell? Jesus said, "What shall it
profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world but lose his own
SOUL IS ETERNAL and long after your body is dead, your soul
will live on in either Heaven or Hell. Every human being is on a
journey to eternity. There can be no turning back and no way to
miss this appointment!
MARCHES ON AND ONE DAY YOU WHO ARE READING THESE LINES, SHOULD
CHRIST TARRY, WILL LAY COLD AND STIFF IN YOUR GRAVE! AND DON'T
THINK THAT CREMATION WILL CHANGE ANYTHING!
Bible says, "And as it is appointed unto men once to die,
but after this the judgment". (Hebrews 9:27) The Bible
states it clearly. Death is not the worst that could happen to
you - IT IS INEVITABLE!
sad thing is to face death alone without God, and then to be
judged and doomed to eternal torment forever because of
rejecting the Saviour. Death is sure and Judgment is sure!
WILL YOU SPEND ETERNITY?
about it. The Holy Bible says there are only two places - HEAVEN
- a place of happiness, peace and joy. (Matthew 25:34;
Revelation 21:4) - HELL, a place where there is agony, pain and
torment. (Matthew 25:41-46; Luke 16:22-28)
is a term in Algebra called infinity. The word 'infinity'
defines a number that is so large it has lost meaning. For
example, if you multiplied a number by itself and kept doing so,
eventually the sum would become so great it would lose all
meaning. We would call that immense number, infinity, for it is
too great to comprehend!
is the way it is with eternity. It is forever! Our human
minds cannot comprehend it. It is so great it cannot be
measured, because it will never end! One day an angel will come
down from Heaven, put one foot on the sea and one foot on the
dry land and swear with his hand raised to Heaven, “that time
is no longer to be.” (Revelation 10:5-6)
that moment, TIME WILL BE NO MORE AND ETERNITY WILL BEGIN! God
will stop the clocks of time and start the wheel of eternity.
Round and round it will go and will never stop. And eternity
- WHERE WILL YOU BE?
sinner, where will you spend Eternity? Either in Heaven or Hell.
Today you must decide. Please choose to serve God. Receive Jesus
as your Saviour, Master and Lord. Pray this prayer, "Oh,
God be merciful to me a sinner, and save me, in Jesus'
Name!", and you will be saved!
Holy Bible says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not
perish, but have everlasting life”. (John 3:16)
TO RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST INTO YOUR HEART TODAY?
THIS PRAYER NOW TO RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST IN YOUR HEART
ask for Thy great mercy and grace. I acknowledge my
sinfulness and confess that I cannot save myself. I
believe the GOOD NEWS that Jesus paid the penalty for m sins,
through His vicarious death on the cross."
believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead according to the
Scriptures and He has the power and authority to forgive my sins
and save my soul. I repent of my sins and am willing to

sake. Thank you Lord, for saving my soul. In Jesus
