I went into my classroom ready for another year at school.
I didn't want the work, just wanted to hang and be cool.
I had on new clothes, and new sneaks on my feet.
I was there for class on time, went to the back and took my seat.
Yeah, I'm moving up...I'm already grown.
Soon I'll be graduating and out on my own.
I talked to some of my friends, we were all having fun.
Said some things I shouldn't have said. Did some things I shouldn't have done.
I knew I was different, I felt God touch my heart.
I knew I should set a standard, but then I'd be set apart.
Walking to the bus, I was not looking for strength.
I heard the car tires screeching, but now it's too late.
I am standing in this room and I can see the heavenly gate.
OH NO! I never prayed. I thought I had time to get it straight.
An angel walked over to me. He had a book in his hands.
I knew it was the book of life. When would this dream end?
I told him my name, and he began to look.
Then he looked at me and sadly said; Your name is not in this book.
Angel, this is a dream. No, I can't be dead!
He closed the book and turned away. You cannot proceed ahead.
No, no, this can't be real. Angel, you can't turn me away.
Let me talk to God. Maybe He will let me stay.
He led me to the gate. Jesus came to me.
He did let me in but said Beloved, what is your need?
Jesus, I cried, please don't cast me away from you.
Tears ran down His face as he said, You knew what you needed to do.
Lord, please I am young. I never thought I would die!
I thought I would have plenty of time, but death caught me by surprise.
Lord, I went to church. Please Jesus, I believe.
You would not accept me. My love you would not receive.
Lord, there are too many hypocrites. They weren't being true.
He took a step back and asked;What does that have to do with you?
Lord, my family claimed to be saved, they were not real you know.
He said, I died for you, now I have to go. I fell to my knees, crying to Him. Lord, I planned to be real tomorrow.
I couldn't make Him understand that I have never felt such sorrow.
Then it hit me hard, I said Lord, where will I go?
He looked at me and said, My child, you already know.
Please Jesus, I begged, the place is hot.
Lord, you're supposed to be love. How can you send me to damnation?
He replied, You said you loved me, but each day you rejected my salvation.
With that, in an instant, day turned to night.
Now too late, I know the Bible is right.
If I can tell you anything, hell has no age.
It's a place of torture, separated from God and full of rage.
You know I thought it was a funny joke, but this one thing is true-
If you never accept Jesus Christ, HELL IS WAITING FOR YOU
According to the Bible
A DEVOURING FIRE.....;The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? (Isaiah 33:14)
A PLACE OF DAMNATION.....Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell! (Matthew 23:33)
A PLACE OF SORROWS.....The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. (Psalms 18:5)
A PLACE FOR THE WICKED.....Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and a horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup. (Psalms 11:6)
A FURNACE OF FIRE.....And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:42)
A PLACE OF TORMENTS.....And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever. (Revelation 20:10)
A PLACE OF PUNISHMENT.....And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. (Matthew 25:46)
A PLACE OF ETERNAL DAMNATION.....But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. (Mark 3:29)
That's the Question:
Which Path Will You Choose?
Think about it.
Jesus is waiting for your decision.
