Who has imagined What happens after

death? It would be both unreasonable and

foolish to live your entire life never considering

and being unprepared for an event that we all

know is inevitable. But No one wants to die. Even

people who want to go to heaven don't want to

die to get there. And yet death is the destination

we all share. No one has ever escaped it.

The time is short, The trumpet may blow anytime soon

Life is somehow, I wonder how the otherside will be, is there really hell? or are we just gonna communicate and fall in love again at the other side?
somehow I believe, I cannot just die and remain unconscious for eternity, I believe in life after death but I wonder how the life would be?

Surviving a day in Nigeria currently is under-rated miracle.

If you can still get one "un-squared" meal a day in Nigeria, you really don't know what God has done for you.

Thank God for life.

WHERE DO WE GO WHEN WE DIE? WHAT HOPE IS THERE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE DIED?: PLEASE READ WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES:

Where do we go when we die? Only God has the answer, and that answer is clearly provided in the Bible. Where did God say Adam and Eve, the first sinners, will go when they die?
The Bible book of Genesis chapter 3 verse 19 answers: "In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you RETURN TO THE GROUND for out of it you were taken, for dust you are and to DUST YOU WILL RETURN". When we die we return to dust of which we were created. But is that the end? No. Jesus answers: "Do not marvel at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the grave will hear his voice and come out....." John 5:28, 29.
So, Jesus promises that in future there will be a resurrection of those who have died. And the Bible added "there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.." Acts chapter 24:15. Therefore when we die, whether righteous or unrighteous, we go to the grave to wait for the resurrection promised by Jesus Christ."
Is it everyone that will be resurrected? No. For Jesus said that those who sinned against the holy spirit will neither be forgiven in this world nor in the world to come. Meaning, they will not be resurrected.
This is the refreshing truth of God's word. God never said anyone will die and go to a place of fire to be burned forever. In the account of creation, the Bible simply said "in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" Genesis 1:1. There is no record in the account of creation where it is written that God created a place of fire to burn the wicked forever. That teaching is the idea of Satan and his agents, not of God at all.
Will the wicked be punished? Certainly yes. The Bible says the wicked will be punished with everlasting destruction. They will die after God's judgement and never to rise again. This is what the Bible calls lake of fire or Second Death, Rev 21:8.
But the living now are encouraged to seek God because those that will be destroyed in the upcoming destruction of the wicked will never be resurrected, as they will suffer everlasting destruction, 2nd Thessalonians 1:6-9.
THIS IS THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD THE BIBLE.
