Jesus is much more prescious than a thousand years of earthly wealth,pleasure,fame,power,and happiness.
One day,those thousand years will come to an end,then where will your soul go?
No matter how long you may live on earth,death will surely catch up with you one-day.
Even if you could live till you’re 150 years,a day will still come when those 150 years are over and eternity stares you in the face.
The best thing anyone can do in this life is to make sure their soul is secure because the end of this earthly life is not the end, judgement follows so that we may give an account for the things we did in this body.
If you have all wealth,health,power,fame but have not put your faith in Jesus,all those things melt into nothing as you enter eternity.
It’s better to have Jesus than to have a thousand years of earthly bliss without Jesus,they will come to an end one day and then where will your soul be?
Putting your faith in Jesus is accompanied by a change of lifestyle, which is repentance from sin.
If we claim to believe in Jesus but continue in sin,Jesus does not know us and will reject us.
2 Corinthians 5:10-11
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.”
“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites,
nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
