Death arrives. What now?
Let's read and listen to what Jesus Christ told us about dying and eternity in His simple story filled with God's TRUTH.



Luke 16:19-31 "The Rich Man and Lazarus" (New King James Version)
Note: Being rich or poor has nothing to do with their eternal destination. It was where their faith was placed.

“There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

“Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’

“Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’”

Read Jesus' Words carefully.
  - Lazarus, the beggar, lived his life for God and wanted to spend eternity with God.
  - The rich man lived for himself and his earthly life without any concern for his eternal future with God.
  - Both men died. They are D-E-A-D.
  - Both men went to a physical place. "...the beggar dies, and he was." "...the rich man also died and was."
  - Lazarus was carried by angels to be with Abraham. (Paradise)
  - The rich man was buried and his soul went to the place of the dead. (Hades)
  - Lazarus is comforted.
  - The rich man is tormented in flames. He's thirsty. He expects Lazarus to serve him.
  - Both men could feel, see, hear and speak.
  - Both men are in a permanent, eternal place.
  - The rich man wants to warn his family but is told they have been warned. They heard just as he did.
  - The rich man is told his family won't repent no matter who warns them.
