“Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. “ John 12:24-25
These words of Jesus are examples of a believer and an unbeliever. A True Believer is like the kernel of wheat that falls to the ground and dies, and if it dies, by being planted into the ground, it will produce MANY seeds.
A True Believer must die to SELF, to their old ways and mindset. When they come to Christ for their SALVATION, they must be willing to TURN AWAY or REPENT from their sinful ways and to hate their old way of life, and die to their OLD SELF and to be raised to a NEW LIFE, in Christ, one which will be a witness to others. In other words, they will produce “MANY SEEDS”, they will be instrumental in adding to the Family of God, which is their mandate. They will be concerned about the things of Christ and not the things of their old, sinful life, before they came to Him.
An unbeliever is one who LOVES their sinful life and embraces all that it entails. They are a threat to the SALVATION of others, who are searching, unknowingly, for their SALVATION, and eternal life in Heaven.
This life on earth is TEMPORARY and one day SOON it will end. Then the question that a person needs to deal with NOW is: “Where will I spend eternity?” My dear friends, there IS a LIFE after death. For the TRUE BELIEVER, those who have given their HEART and LIFE to God, it will be an eternity in Heaven, with Father God, and His Son Jesus Christ. For the unbeliever, it will be an eternity in Hell, the place of TORMENT, TORTURE, HEARTACHE, AGONY and DESPAIR for ALL ETERNITY, with NO WAY of escape.
If you believe that there is NO AFTERLIFE, then you are sadly mistaken, and if you believe that I am the one that is mistaken, then think of this: What if YOU are wrong? If you are wrong you are in BIG TROUBLE, IF I am wrong, and I’m NOT, I have lost NOTHING, but YOU, being WRONG have LOST EVERYTHING. You don’t have to lose anything, just come to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be that SINGLE SEED, which has died to its old sinful self, and is planted in Jesus Christ, and that produces MANY SEEDS for the Family of God. Come to Him NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
