WHY YOU SHOULD BE A CHRISTIAN

If you believe the Bible, it tells us that in eternity God will be the light for the city and the city the light for the nation. Revelation 21:22 – 24 – “I saw no temple in the city, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its light. The nations will walk in its light, and the kings of the world will enter the city in all their glory.” Have you ever considered what it would be like when God and Christ are living among the believers?

Can you even imagine what life would be like? Revelation 21:2 – 3 – “And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them.” It is estimated, according to the Bible, there would be room for over 15 billion believers. Christ, over 2000 years ago, said He would be in heaven preparing room for each of His followers. Can you imagine what a new heaven and a new earth would look like? We are also told that God will maintain a fellowship with us much like He did with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Revelation 21:4 – “He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” There will be no need for doctors or hospitals.

For God to leave heaven and dwell with His people, it will be the most amazing place ever. Scripture tells us there will be no oceans and it will be an entirely newly created earth. There will be no day or night. All of our needs will be met.

Before the new earth and new heaven, there will be 1000 years when Christ will rule this earth. Infants will not die at birth, anyone who dies before 100 would die in their youth. We believe people will live long lives as they did during the time of Adam and Eve and generations later. Everyone will have a glorified body. There will be no Satan and no tempter until the end of the millennial. There will be no death from sickness. During the millennium people will have children and populate the earth with new generations of people. Women will still be able to have babies in their old age. If you have a large family, we are told all of our needs will be met.

If you do not accept Christ as your Savior and your name is not found in Lamb’s book of life, unbelievers will end up in the lake of fire for eternity. Revelation 20:15 – “And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.” God’s righteous judgment will be given to every person who ever lived.

On the Day of Judgment there will be no second chances for those who have rejected Jesus Christ. As a Christian, why would you not want to tell others what is possible in their future if they are a Christian? Also let them know that if they reject Jesus what the result would be. I suppose for those who will never believe there is a God or the Bible wasn’t inspired by Him, there isn’t much hope. But only God knows who those might be and it is not for us to judge. We are required to witness and share what the future will be like. I am looking forward to the paradise that awaits the followers of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 21:8 – “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
