Humor Makes The Point!


   There was this lady who had to do a lot of traveling for her business, so she did a lot of flying.  But flying made her nervous, so she always took her Bible along to read, and it helped to relax her.

   One time she was sitting next to a man and when he saw her pull out her Bible, he gave a little chuckle and went back to what he was doing.  After a while he turned to her and asked, “You don’t really believe all that stuff in there do you?”  The lady replied, “Of course I do, it is the Bible.”  He said, “Well what about that guy that was swallowed by that whale?”  She replied, “Oh, Jonah.  Yes, I believe that, it is in the Bible.”  He asked, “Well, how do you suppose he survived all that time inside the whale?”  The lady said, “Well, I don’t really know.  I guess when I get to heaven I’ll ask him.”  “What if he isn’t in heaven?”  the man asked sarcastically.  “Then you can ask him”, replied the lady.

   There is only one of two places you can be in eternity.  It is either heaven or hell.  Jesus emphasized this fact during His personal ministry on earth and by the Holy Spirit, through His apostles, following His ascension.  Nothing could be plainer, but people continue to spurn His warnings.

   Jesus pictured the judgment scene like this:  “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment; but the righteous into life eternal” (Matthew 25:46).

   The inspired apostle Paul wrote:  “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to what he has done, whether it is good or evil” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

   Learn from God’s Word what it takes to go to heaven when life is over on this earth.  You have time now to make changes in your life, but there will be no occasion to change after death and when you appear at the judgment scene.
