HEAVEN OR HELL?
I received an email titled, "Death, what a wonderful way to explain it" and it told the story of a patient who feared death. She asked her "Christian" doctor what awaited on the other side, and he told her he didn't know but then said, "Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing... I know my Master is there and that is enough."

My reply was as follows:
This is true ONLY if my Master is the Son of God Who died on the cross for my sin, rose again on the thrid day, and is coming back one day soon.

There are many masters in the world but only One Master, One True God, One Savior and His name is the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

Be not deceived, my friends - if I haven't put my faith in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ, then I have no assurance of heaven when I die but rather, hell awaits me.
