God of the Living

Luke 20:38

For He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for all live to Him.

Some Jews, the Sadducees, did not believe in the resurrection.

They believed this life was all there is.

Similar to atheists who believe this life is all there is.

No hereafter, no heaven, no hell.

Just death, nonexistence.

But Jesus tells us here, that God is the God of the Living.

It's in the name, I AM, Yahweh, the "self-existent One".

God is not the god of the dead.

Meaning our spirits do continue, after our body dies.

When everyone is raised from the dead, there will be judgment.

There are only two destinations, heaven or hell.

Eternal life with God, or eternal destruction in the lake of fire.

Who else is in the lake of fire?

Revelation 20:10

The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

Satan is the "god of the dead".

The broad path of following the devil leads to eternal destruction.

Our Lord is the God of the living, those with eternal life.

Yahweh is "I AM", the One who is and was and will forever be.

Our choice is clear.

Be deceived, follow the god of the dead to destruction.

Know the truth and follow Jesus to eternal life.

Do not be fooled.

Jesus is returning, and hell is real.

Don't choose hell.
