What happens When I Die?
As most of you know my mom is on hospice in a hospice center. She is dying. I am reminded of Hebrews 9:27—“It is appointed for man once to die and after this the judgement.” At times like this many interesting things are discussed about the afterlife: “Will we know one another?” “What kind of body will we have?” “Does the soul sleep until judgment day?” or “Where does the soul go until judgement day?” These, and many other questions may make for interesting discussion, but the Bible really provides no clear answer to any of them. The only real important question is, “Where will I spend eternity?” There will be only two options for eternity—with God or with Satan, in peace or in torment, in perfect health or in sickness and suffering, in happiness or in wretchedness, in contentment or in regret— which one will you choose? God has done all he will do to give us the opportunity at eternal life with Him. It is now up to us. We must obey God and strive to live like Jesus lived. If we do this we can die in hope. If we do not we are of all men most miserable (1 Cor. 15:19) and without hope for eternity with God
