WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY WILL HAPPEN TO YOU AFTER DEATH?

People take their final breaths on a daily basis to the world beyond . Although we may never had met them or even know them but the reality of death happens every day. The permanent, irreversible cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism which is called death happens to thousands of people everyday and slip them into heaven or hell.

NOW WHAT HAPPENS TO THE DEAD?

Immediately the moment afer you dies, your soul temporarily leaves the body and awaits the resurrection. Those who died in Christ or place their faith in Christ will be carried by the angels into the presence of the Lord. They will be absent from the body and be with the Lord while the Unbelievers awaits in hades for the final judgement.

THERE IS LIFE AFTER DEATH AND THERE IS HEAVEN AND HELL. DO NOT BE DECEIVED…

“Our bodies will return to dust of the earth, and the breath of life will go back to God, who gave it to us.” Ecclesiastes 12:7

You dont have to cry out your eyes or feel shattered, when you lost a loved one who died in Christ. I know it is always painful, very painful but always console yourself with these words.

“Our brothers, we want you to know the truth about those who have died, so that you will not be sad, as are those who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will take back with Jesus, those who have died believing in Him. What we are teaching you now is the Lord’s teaching: we who are alive in the day the lord comes will not go ahead of those who have died. There will be the shout of command, the arch angel’s voice, the sound of God’s trumpet, and the Lord Himself will come down from heaven. Those who have died believing in Christ will rise to life first; then we who are living at that time will be gathered up along with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord. So then, encourage one another with these words. 1 thessalonians 4:14-18

But the death of a sinner or an unbeliever is so painful and sorrowful because that special person has gone to the beyound, to suffer and gnash teeth. The worst is that his cries, torments even prayers offers no comfort of whatsoever, for there is a great gulf that is fixed where no one can pass to the other side. The sinner will be in his misery alone and there is flame of hope forever and will be denied of seeing his loved ones again.

While the believers, those who died in the Lord are precious in the sight of the Lord. They will be escorted by the angels into the presence of the Lord. They are now comforted. And they have faith of seeing their loved ones again. Death for a believer is a doorway into eternal happiness.

I know it is a sad and painful thing to lower our loved ones in grave in tears but you have to be consoled if your loved one died in Christ because you shall meet them again with joy! to see them smile again and feel their touch ones more… Never to part again!

But if you die as a sinner, you are going to hell. There is absolutely no pleasant way to say it.

Yeah! with no doubt the Bible states that “everyone has sinned and is far away from God’s saving presence.” Romans 3:23

The ‘ALL’ is talking to your soul and mine. But anyone can be saved if he/she realizes the awfulness of our sin against God and feel sorry from our deepest heart and ask for forgiveness and turn away from the sin and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and your saviour, then thou shall be saved. (Romans 10:9).

Never you allow yourself to shut your eyes in dirty sleep(death) without JESUS CHRIST. Death is not the most painful thing that can happen to humanity but not being able to secure eternal happiness.

YOU CAN ONLY RECEIVE THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE SIMPLY BY DOING THESE THINGS ÷

-Believe in our Lord JESUS CHRIST.

– Ask for your sins to be forgiven.

– Put your trust in the Lord.

-Turn away from your sins.

-Ask for eternal life.

Jesus Christ is God’s wonderful plan for our salvation.

26, They do not have unrealistic expectations from a man.

27, They do not overlook warning signs. Proverb 2:10-11

28, Wise woman avoid rushing to the altar untill they court properly. It is wise to avoid a hasty relationship.

29, A godly wise woman would know that every house is built gradually with wisdom. Proverb 24: 3-4

30, Wise woman avoid saying too much too soon. You need to know if they are ready to handle what they would hear, and if they are ready to also come clean with us.

31, Wise woman do not pretend to be the perfect “proverbs 31” woman. Romans 12:16…The scriptures cannot be broken, the truth in that passage stands but as we see the several abilities of the proverbs 31 woman, we see a mirror of what truly we desire to be, but may not be allowed by time, situations, and challenges of modernity.

32, Wise women do not live in denial, they know and admit when it is over. That is why a wise woman must unlearn to chase after a man but learn to follow after a man.

33, They refuse to display affection before a commitment from the man. Let a man pursue you, and not you pursue him. Learn to be a responder, do not buy love. This practice is still much active till date, if you truly want to enjoy your womanhood and relationship.

34, Wise women refuse to break down because of a broken relationship. 1 Corinthians 16:13. If you are going out with a man, let it be clear and obvious to him and to you that you are still going out. The same with dating and courtship. The engagement needs to be formal, so that each level is clearly defined.

35, Godly women in their wisdom remember that they need a man that will show them honor and treat them always as special. They are attracted to the man who will never downplay their achievements, but rather keep on encouraging them (even when they want to downplay it) until they truly become fulfilled and expressive of what God has done for them.

36, They stay away from despair when there is a delay. Wisdom must prevail in the management of delays, a wise woman must know that delays are never denials, and because it has not happened does not mean it will not happen. It is primarily important that you seek the face of God, and establish His call on your life. If we accept it or not, we need to know that some of us may have been called to a celibate life, and will only find fulfillment within the scope of our calling.

37, Wise women keep believing, trusting and praying to JESUS. They do not just connect with a spouse who would erode their Christian life, if anything, it should enhance it, because they know that whatever reduces their devotion to the LORD may be that which is the beginning of one’s downfall.

38, They do not marry a man who can’t support the family. (1Timothy 5:8). The man is called the bread winner in the scriptures, his function is to provide and protect the family. In his calling as the provider, the wife’s income must be regarded as supplementary.

39, They are wise to say NO in courtship to things they do not want in marriage. (PROVERB 27:5)

40, Wise woman emulate Ruth. Ruth walked in the friendship that is the foundation for a healthy relationship. You can’t live your life in isolation, that is why God surrounds you with people. You must be able to have friends, who will validate you, encourage you and help you to be a WINNER. Healthy relationships are necessary to be a healthy person. Your social contacts are an indication of how you have chosen to make your life work. Difficulties or troubles should not stop you because it doesn’t last for a lifetime.

Godly women choose their relationship and once they find it they show loyalty and total commitment. A faithful woman is said to abound in blessing, disloyalty will result in betrayal and when you betray others, you might reap the fruit of the seed you have sown.

Its like building your house upon the sand. It will not be able to stand the storms and the hassles; the elements will tear it apart. When you put value to your relationship, you make marriage work. Putting value to your relationships means improving relationships with people.

19 – WISE WOMEN AVOID BEING TERMINATORS OR DESTROYERS OF THE WARRIOR SPIRIT IN THEIR MAN…Male chauvinism is not right, yet a man by nature is made by God to be a warrior. A wise woman will let the man be the pursuant. She would let him suggest and run around for special occasions. Let him suggest and run around for special occasions. Do not help him to fulfil the romantic blank, let him pursue it and show that he deserves your hand. Do not kill the warrior spirit in him; do not kill the warrior spirit in him; do not deny him the ability to use his potential either. Do not do more for him than he does for you, though it is important that there should be a mutual exchange and love in marriage but let him be the man and you, the woman.

22 – GODLY WOMEN ARE MARKED BY THEIR ABILITY TO KEEP PROMISES COLOSIANS 3:9 ÷ The true worth of a person is the ability to keep promises. God is only as good as His word. A godly woman will be measured not by her eternals, but by her her internal ability to stay true to the promise she has made.

23 – THEY ATTRACT OUTSTANDING COMPASSION. Godly women move away from the grief of the past. The grief you walk in may ruin the joy you should know. If you are unable to let go of grief, you welcome self – destruct.

80 ACTIONS OF A WISE WOMAN…

CONTINUATION…5POINTS ALREADY DISCUSSED PREVIOUSLY.

#6 THEY DON’T FALL FOR A MAN’S STATUS÷ Oftentimes, women fall for already made, money, status and regret later. A man’s status is a product of achievement, it can come and go. Fall in love with a man himself and not what he is within his status.

#7 THEY DON’T CUT ALL OTHER CONTACTS FOR A MAN÷ if you find yourself in this predicament, you need to rethink because doing so is giving up part of yourself. If you are sacrificing all of your desires, dreams, visions and goals to be accepted by a man, then very soon, there will be nothing left for you again to live for. An insecure men always make demands that will ruin their partners.

#8 THEY DO NOT BECOME THE FINANCIER OF A MAN OUT OF DESPERATION ÷ Nothing says one cannot court an unemployed man, but it is important that he proves that he deserve your hand. Do not try to keep a man by financing him. He might just be there for the cash and will still leave when he finds what he want or if you try to buy him.

#9 WISE WOMEN REFUSE MENTAL, PHYSICAL, SEXUAL AND FINANCIAL ABUSE…I TIMOTHY 4:12 ÷ In abusive situations the abuser behaves as if it is your fault or everyone’s fault but not him. All his weaknesses, he regards them as the fault of somebody. He does not accept the fact that he is at fault or needs to work on himself.

#10 THEY DON’T THROW THEMSELVES AT A MAN…PROVERBS 18:22 ÷ A man is suppose to be the finder, the woman is the keeper. Men by nature are hunters, warriors who must seek after what they want. To be bitchy and to pursue a man is to reduce the part of the testimony and joy, you ought to get from him via honour. Be dignified, let your husband love you, let him seek after you. If he sought for you and found you, the chances are that he will keep you and keep honouring you. Carry yourself according to your destiny.

#11 WISE WOMEN AVOID INVOLVEMENT WITH MARRIED MEN÷ Jesus said, we must do to others what we expect them to do for us. If you send out a sound expect an echo. Those who sow the wind must be prepared for a harvest of hurricane. The Bible calls any relationship outside of a marriage a sin but today it is becoming a NORM and we are suffering BIG TIME because of our disobedience. Avoid the danger of being carried away by the promises he has made to you.

#12 THEY ARE WISE ENOUGH NOT TO ALLOW THEIR INSECURITIES DESTROY THEIR FUTURE÷ The things we have gone through in life tend to shape us, and if you have been disappointed by the opposite sex it raises the chances of insecurity. They do not allow the insecurities born out of their experiences to destroy a good thing coming together for them.

#13 WISE WOMAN DO NOT REPLACE A MAN’S MOTHER ÷ It is very frustrating for a man to be treated as if he is still a child. Many women who have probably lived with a child for long, especially single parents, they do not know how to transition from talking to their little boys to now talking to the man who is now their husband.

#14 WISE WOMAN AVOID SEEKING EXPENSIVE GIFTS AS A SIGN OF LOVE AND COMMITMENT ÷ The priority in any relationship must be the heart and not the purse. Whether he takes you out for shopping or to an expensive restaurant , what really matters is not the kind of gift he showers you but the kind of heart from which it comes and the constancy of it. Whatever a man does should be in proportion to the love he shows you and his commitment to you.

#15 THEY ARE WISE ENOUGH NOT TO THROW AWAY A DIAMOND THAT LOOKS ROUGH …EXODUS 16:15… ÷ Inspite of the adage not to judge something by its wrapping, today’s marketing and packaging has influenced our thinking. We buy things purely because of the way they are and how it is being presented to us, and what we are told they can do for us, even when we are not sure. We bring the same philosophy and attitude into our relationships and things that will shape our destiny. We marry men that we know we may not be able to live with simply because we chose to look at how handsome they are. While on the other hand we may meet a man who is a diamond in the rough, by the way, diamonds never look glittering. A diamond was once coal that went through a lot of heat and become a stone in the rough, and chipped until the beauty came out. There is absolutely nothing wrong in liking what you want but firstly do not be carried away by outward looks. Do not be carried away by your critical opinion.

80 ACTIONS OF A WISE WOMAN

When you think of a wise woman, you are about to meet a great personality. A wise woman is disciplined, she got a lot of characteristics that are engaging and admired.

The Bible exalts strong, capable and wise women! Does that statement surprise you? Think of the female heroine of the Bible. You can start from Ruth, Abigail, Mary the mother of Jesus.

A wise woman is guided by wisdom, how much wisdom someone has is an essential part of their Psychological profile and remains constant through their life.

HERE ARE 80 ACTIONS OF A WISE WOMAN THAT YOU NEED TO CONSIDER AS A WOMAN

1# They avoid having babies for the wrong reasons.

I am not hear to preach but it is heartbreaking and painful seeing what infants are passing through today because some women brought them to the world. It is foolish to yank commitment from a man using pregnancy. God wants you to have children, but they should be for signs and wonders. And if a man wants to have a sexual relationship with you, the fear of not having the safest sex out of wedlock should not just be why you say no but the fear of having babies as well. Help these children.

“No one born out of wedlock or any descendant of such a person, even in the tenth generation, may be included among the LORD’S people. DEUTERONOMY 23:2,

PSALM 127:3-5

2# They avoid the “I can’t help it syndrome.

Men and women handle emotions differently. While a woman processes information firstly with the right side of her brain, the side of emotion and later with the left side of the logic. But a man starts with logic first and then emotion, and men does not properly handle his emotions the way a woman will or does.

3# They don’t lower their standards and sell themselves cheap

Why would a woman sell herself cheap when she only has one life? Sexual impurity is the number one trap that satan will set before you whether you like or not. Do not cheapen yourself. Scarcity makes a commodity expensive, rarity increase the price of a thing, where there is an over supply, price falls. Raise the standard of the life you live. There is only one you that is why whoever should have your hand, should truly deserve it. 2PETER 1:3-4

4# They don’t dress to seduce.

Clothing are supposed to be primarily to cover nakedness, as social beings, to express our beauty, to relate to our world and be acceptable to those around us. When your man begins to suggest clothes that are indecent, it is not helpful when he is turning you to a play thing. You must be wise enough to refuse the “come and get me” clothes. The man who cannot say I love you when you are in old sweaters is dangerous. Men who prefer suggestive indecent clothings for you are actually fulfilling a fantasy through you. Go out there and enhance your beauty, portray decorum, be attractive. Attractions and attention are not the same thing.

5# They don’t get into unwise submission

Don’t fill his inactivity with your own action,do not fill his separation with your love. You should be in submission but it is only to those things that honour God. Ask yourself and list what ways the Bible teaches you to submit. Let him know you expect him to talk and let him love you tenderly.

” Surely you know that when you surrender yourself as slaves to obey someone, you are in fact the slaves of the master you obey- of sin, which results in death, or of obedience, which results in being put right with God.” ROMANS 6:16

EPHESIANS 5:24

IS YOUR LIFE PREDESTINED

This issue have been discussed deeply by the religious persons. And many people are still confused about the whole thing.

Life being predestined is the belief that events of history, past, present and future have been already decided or are already known by God, fate or some other force including human action.

Your life is not predestined by God. Your future is not planned out before you and your own decisions determine what your everlasting future will be.

Yes! there is an amount of predetermination in each of our lives, we call it destiny and fate but there are greater amount of free will to make it productive. Like motivational speakers always press on self discovery (the highest discovery one can discover on earth).

Now if finally you discover that music is your thing, you are passionate about it,you find peace in yourself anytime you think about it. Will you now fold your hands for things to work out on it’s own. NOT AT ALL. If some forces has already determined your future, then trying to take care of yourself is useless. Statistics show that people who take precautions suffer fewer fatal consequences. Carelessness can result in tragedy.

“I returned and saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift,nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.” (Ecc 9: 11)

Our life responds to our understanding, the more you understand the ways of life, the more you understand the natural process of life. The choice you make today determine your tomorrow, your tomorrow determines your destiny, your destiny determines the eternity of life and that of a nation.

Taken to its logical conclusion, the idea that God fore knows all decisions would mean that God is responsible for all that happens – including wars, injustice, and suffering. Can this be possible? A clear answer is provided by what God says about Himself.

The Scripture state that “God is love” and that He is “a lover of justice”.

Never forget “go ye into the world and be fruitful “. The choice is yours. You are responsible on how your life turn out to be as long as you are not a deviant.

WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST

To discover who you are, you must first know your source. In Genesis 1:26, we see that God made man in his image and in his likeness that means we have God’s image and we are like him. Psalm 52:6 says “Ye are gods”.

We are created in His class, Iam a reflection of who God is. He created a dominator, made for dominion. We lost that dominion at the fall of the first Adam but the Second Adam – JESUS came and restored it, in Christ all that God made man to be and have, is restored. You need to get a personal revelation of this. Until the image you have inside translates to the image God has of you, you will not manifest your true self.

You can’t reflect God if you dont see yourself as he sees you. 1peter 2: 9 says

“You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation and God’s special people “.

SAY THESE TO YOURSELF BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE AS A BELIEVER…

I am chosen, I am royal, I am special, I am justified, without condemnation- Romans 8:1, Ephesians 1:11

I am God’s elect – Romans 8:33

I am God’s son – 1John 3:1, Galatians 4: 4-7

I am the child of the living God

I am the righteousness of God in Christ

I am blessed – Deuteronomy 28:1-14

I belong to Christ and Christ in God -1corinthians 2:23

I am tatooed on God’s hands – Isaiah 48:16

I am a King/Queen – Rev 5:10

THE APPROACH TO THE THRONE OF GRACE IS BOLDNESS

Boldness is the access to the grace and it is achieved by action not by mere words. This is how to overcome inertia. It is not enough to believe because demons also believe. (James 2:19).

Often times it is not even enough to confess what you believe. You need action. Step out on the water if need be and create a record. You cannot create a record until you take a risk – a major risk.

BOLDNESS : the access to the grace

GRACE : your reach beyound your merit.

MERIT : your personal limitation

LIMITATION : The exclusion of God

GOD : He by whom all things are possible.

Let us have confidence, then,and approach God’s throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it.” (HEBREWS 4:16)
