John 5:24 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.

John 5:25 "Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.


Last week I read in the Newspapers about a plane crash that occurred at a place where people lives. One woman went out from her house to do something when she heard a great noise. She just turned to look at what had happened and she saw her house coming down because of the plane crash. Her husband and two daughters died in that incident and her niece survived, but her face was burned badly. Only a few moments back they had no idea that this type of terrible things are going to happen to them. Just in a few seconds her husband and her two daughters are gone from this world.

Oh, yes, this is life. What we have today may never be n tomorrow. And more than that no one knows, when our lives will end. No one knows and no one can predict what would happen the next moment. But the question is, what is your destiny after death? Where would you spend your eternity after death - in heaven or hell? Many people think that all the ways lead to heaven. But how can it be possible? If you want to go to heaven you must know the way. Just like if you want to go to New York, you must catch the flight for New York. If you think that all flights are going to New York and if you go and sit in any flight, then do you think you will reach New York? Certainty not; but you have to find out which flight will take you to New York. In the same way, if you want to go to heaven you must be certain that you are going the right way. Jesus said in, John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

Yes, Jesus is the way to heaven and no one can go to haven except through Jesus. If you are not sure where you are going after death then you need to accept Jesus in your life and confirm your ticket to heaven.

Some people think that, God is a very loving person and so He will not allow any body to go to hell. My dear friend, if you are thinking like that then you are mistaken. The Bible says that we are all sinners and we need the forgiveness of sins. Otherwise one day we have to face the judgment seat of God because we have broken the laws of God by sinning against Him. Hebrew 9:27-28, "And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation." In this world itself if we break the laws of Govt. then we have to face judgment, then how much more should we fear when we break the laws of God. But by His great mercy and by His great love, He made a way for us so that we may never go before the judgment seat or die eternally. But we can obtain forgiveness of sin by believing on Jesus as the Bible says in, 1 John 1:8, "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us."

Also the Bible says in 1 John 1:7, "But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin."

Yes, my friend, if your sins are not forgiven then you will never enter into the kingdom of God. Your sins must be forgiven before you leave this world. Otherwise one day you have to give answers before the throne of God on the Day of Judgment.

How can we get forgiveness of our sins?

Realizing that we are sinners and that by our own efforts or by our good deeds we can not achieve forgiveness of sins. (We need God who can forgive our sins.)
Confessing our sins before God that we have sinned before Him and broken the laws of God.

Inviting Jesus in our life as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said in Revelation 3:20, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me."

Turn from your sins and God will help you to live a holy life.
If you do that, He will forgive all your sins and will give you a new life. A life full of peace, joy and happiness and when you close your eyes in this world you will enter into the kingdom of God.

In the last Issue you read how a Buddhist monk was dead and was amazed that he did not even loose his conscience and went to hell. He met the king of hell there. Now read the second part of this story in this Issue.

Buddhist Monk who came back to life II

The terrible, terrible Lake of Fire:

The king of hell told me to look into the lake of fire. I looked and I saw the saffron colored robes that Buddhist monks wear in Myanmar. I looked closer and saw the shaven head of a man. When I looked at the man's face I saw it was U Zadila Kyar Ni Kan Sayadaw [the famous monk who had died in a car accident in 1983]. I asked the king of hell why my former leader was confined to this lake of torment. I said, "Why is he in this lake of fire? He was a very good teacher. He even had a teaching tape called 'Are You a Man or a Dog?' which had helped thousands of people understand that their worth as humans is far greater than the animals." The king of hell replied, "Yes, he was a good teacher but he did not believe in Jesus Christ. That's why he is in hell."

I was told to look at another person who was in the fire. I saw a man with very long hair wrapped on the left hand side of his head. He was also wearing a robe. I asked the king of hell, "Who is this man?" He replied, "This is the one you worship: Gautama [Buddha]." I was very disturbed to see Gautama in hell. I protested, "Gautama had good ethics and good moral character, why is he suffering in this lake of fire?" The king of hell answered me, "It doesn't matter how good he was. He is in this place because he did not believe in the Eternal God."

I then saw another man who looked like he was wearing a soldier's uniform. He had a large wound on his chest. I asked, "Who is this man?" The king of hell said, "This is Aung San, the revolutionary leader of Myanmar." I was told, "Aung San is here because he persecuted and killed Christians, but mostly because he didn't believe in Jesus Christ." In Myanmar the people have a common saying, "Soldiers never die, they live on." I was told that the legions of hell have a saying "Soldiers never die, but they go to hell forever."

I looked and saw another man in the lake of fire. He was a very tall man and he was dressed in military armor. He was also holding a sword and a shield. This man had a wound on his forehead. This man was taller than any person I have ever seen. He was six times the length between a man's elbow and the tips of his fingers when he stretches his arm out straight, plus one span of a man's fingers when he spreads out his hand. The king of hell said, "This man's name is Goliath. He is in hell because he blasphemed the Eternal God and His servant David." I was confused because I didn't know who either Goliath or David was. The king of hell said, "Goliath is recorded in the Christian Bible. You don't know him now, but when you become a Christian you will know who he is."

Another king of hell then came to me. I also saw a being whose job is to stoke the fires beneath the lake of fire, to keep it hot. This being asked me, "Are you going into the lake of fire too?" I replied, "No! I am only here to observe!" The appearance of this creature stoking the fire was very terrifying. He had ten horns on his head and a spear in his hand that had seven sharp blades coming from the end. The creature told me, "You are right. You came here just to observe. I cannot find your name here." He said, "You must now go back the way you came." He pointed me toward the desolate plain that I had first walked along before I came to the lake of fire.

The Road of Decision:

I walked a long time, until I was bleeding. I was hot and in great pain. Finally, after walking for about three hours I came to a wide road. I walked along this road for some time until I came to a fork. One road, going off to the left, was wide. A smaller road went off to the right hand side. There was a signpost at the fork saying that the road to the left was for those who do not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. The smaller road to the right was for believers in Jesus.

I was interested to see where the larger road led so I started down it. There were two men walking about 300 yards ahead of me. I tried to catch up with them so I could walk with them but no matter how hard I tried I couldn't catch up with them, so I turned around and went back to the fork in the road. I continued to watch these two men as they walked down the road away from me. When they reached the end of the road they were suddenly stabbed. These two men cried out in great pain! I also cried out when I saw what happened to them! I realized the bigger road ended in great danger for those who traveled down it.
