Will you be able to Rest In Peace? Sure, this is a popular saying and spoken at funerals and over the graves of the dead. Yet is everyone who dies going to truly be able to Rest In Peace? Is everyone going to a better place or, might some be going to a worse place?
Do you really want the truth about the place to which you are going to spend eternity? Do you truly want to RIP? If so, keep reading.
Firstly, we must reckon with the reality that not one of us is good and we have all sinned against our Maker and are separated from Him because He is “Holy, holy, holy.” (Revelation 4:8) Let’s prove that “ALL have sinned…” (Romans 3:23): Have you ever lied, even once? The Law of God says “Thou shalt not bear false witness (lie).” Also, “Thou shalt not steal,” and “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD your God in vain … covet, commit adultery, and have any other gods before the LORD God.” Have you violated any part of God’s law? Yes, we all have. The honest heart will admit it’s guilt right now. In the eyes of the Judge of your eternal soul, you are a liar, a thief, adulterer, and blasphemer. This makes it clear that you are separated from Him due to your sin. You are fully guilty and in big trouble. And this is exactly why the Son of God came to the earth.
“Christ Jesus came into the world to save (rescue) sinners.” 1 Timothy 1:15
The Bible tells us that “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) Friend, I ask you: Do you believe the Gospel record given to us of Jesus Christ? Do you acknowledge and believe that according to the historical biblical record, Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, was crucified for our sins on a cross, buried, and raised again three days later, reigns in power at His Father’s right hand in Heaven, and is coming back soon?
Your Moment of Truth: You have sincerely admitted that you are guilty of breaking God’s law – sinning against Him – and are separated from Him. And, if you believe the Gospel record of Christ from Holy Scripture, you are ready to make peace with your Maker so you can truly rest in eternal peace!
Is there any reason you couldn’t stop your life right now, repent (turn fully to God), and receive Jesus into your life today?
One thing is certain – You are going to die. And “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27) Death and eternity are a reality for all. There will be no second chance once you die. There is no such thing as a purgatory or an in-between place of any kind.
The Judge of all men says that those who die unforgiven for their sins, will have no peace in eternity. Why? Because the Bible warns that “the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Rom. 6:23) One thing is certain: All men will die – you will die.
You will die, but will you Rest In Peace when you leave earth? Is everyone better off in the afterlife? Does everyone go to a better place? Does this vivid Bible description of hell given below sound like a place of peace? Instead of resting in peace, here’s what the wicked have for their future:
A place of complete consciousness (feelings)…Luke 16:25
Torment with fire and brimstone………………………Matt. 8:12
A place of eternal remorse (regret)…………………Luke 16:25
A place of torments………………………………………Luke 16:23
No rest day or night forever (eternal misery)……Rev. 14:11
A furnace of fire with wailing…………………………Matt. 13:42
A place of everlasting burnings……………………Isaiah 33:14
A lake (ocean) of fire……………………………………..Rev. 20:15
Unquenchable fire………………………………………….Mark 9:45
Outer darkness…………………………………………….Matt. 22:13
No 2nd chance to escape (utter hopelessness)…..Lk. 16:26
A place of sorrows (seething remorse/despair)……..Ps. 18:5
A place of everlasting destruction …………..
2 Thess. 1:9
Resting in peace is a pipe dream – a big lie – for any soul who dies in sin, having refused Christ’s forgiveness of their sins.
“There is NO PEACE, saith my God, to the wicked.” Isaiah 57:21
It’s only those who freely choose to come to the Prince of Peace who will have peace both now and eternally. They alone shall Rest In Peace. Jesus died and was raised again for the justification of all men and will forgive and save all who call upon Him before it’s too late (Rom. 10:13). Christ invites:
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
There is no rest to the wicked dead. Here’s what is their future:
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:15
Will you RIP or will you burn in horror in hell’s flames? Choose Jesus now.
If you truly want to Rest In Peace with the Prince of Peace and His beloved children, bow your head now. From the very depths of your heart, with all that is within you, in sincere honesty before your Maker, turn your life over to Him without reserve, right now. Pray this prayer below with your mouth, aloud to your heavenly Father and His only begotten Son Jesus:
LORD Jesus, thank You for dying on that cross for me, shedding Your precious blood for my sins. I fully believe that You died and paid fully for all my sins, were buried, and were raised from the dead to completely justify me. LORD Jesus, I now confess You as my LORD. Jesus, take over my life right now. I am all Yours. Right this very instant, into Your holy hands I submit my spirit and my whole life and whole being. I love You LORD Jesus. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
