5 Things You Should Do Before You Die by Interesting15: 4:30pm On Sep 10
Although death is unpleasant, it remains inevitable. As long as this cycle of season remains, everyone will leave the earth someday, one after the other. Hence, rather than shying away from the discourse of death, you can utilize its reality (the fact that you will likely die one day) to become a much better person here on earth, and earn yourself a ticket to an afterlife of bliss.

In this short article, let's explore five important things that should be done before leaving the earth:

1. Live Life

You are not living life if you don't know the purpose of life. Unfortunately, a lot of people are simply living without direction (simply living 'anyhow'). There's a difference between breathing and living. Many people are only wasting their breathe, as they are merely earth wanderers, living for nothing significant. That's why, at the point of death, many realised they didn't really live a significant life, and usually wish they can turn back the hands of time.

Before you die, ensure you live life. You are living life when you are living a life of significance, which is possible when you live a purposeful life. Know your purpose, know why God created you, and occupy yourself with your purpose. That's how to live life indeed, and not just banking on your earthly accomplishments (which will eventually pass away).

2. Enjoy Life

The original intention of God is that humans should enjoy all He created on earth. Since Heaven is a Citadel of bliss and pleasure that knows no suffering, God desire extending this reality to earth. Unfortunately, sin and the devil keeps disrupting this. However, God sent Jesus to make things right again - and we can now know how to live and enjoy life according to His Will.

Unfortunately, many people are still regarding sinful ventures as "enjoyment". Many humans thought they are enjoying life when they indulge in alcoholism, immoral sexual activities, clubbing, and so on. Unfortunately, these things are poisonous, and they cut the life short, preventing you from enjoying life indeed. Listen, any act of pleasure that is contrary to God's Will is not only sinful, but poisonous. There are tons of noble pleasurable activities you can enjoy with yourself, your family, and your loved ones. Enjoy such things before you die.

3. Dominate Life

The Will of God is that you should have dominion over everything He has created. You are meant to be in charge, and not become a slave to anything negative (including sin, satan, poverty, sickness, curse, hell, death, fear, etc). This can only be enabled with an intimate relationship with God, through Jesus Christ the Lord.

4. Impact Life

There was a man called Methuselah who lived for 969 years. Unfortunately, there's nothing significant attributed to him. But Jesus Christ lived on earth in human flesh, for just 33 years, and till forever, He will be celebrated. Before you die, ensure you impact the world positively, irrespective of your field and passion. Contribute to earth's pleasantness. Rise and start doing great things.

5. Be Sure Of Your Afterlife

Perhaps the most important on the list. When we close our eyes and leave this world, there is an afterlife we will find ourselves. While our current world is limited and short, this afterlife is eternal and everlasting. Interestingly, what will determine where and how you will spend the afterlife is how you lived here on earth. In the afterlife, everyone will be judged by God for the things we did on earth. While some will be embraced into Heaven (a place of eternal peace and comfort), some will be banished to hell fire (a place of eternal torment).

Hence, the best thing you can do for yourself is to start preparing for the afterlife before you die. How can you adequately prepare? Simple. Accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and forsake your sins! Start serving Him in spirit and in truth, and ignore the sinful distractions of this world. When you do this, you won't be scared of death, but will regard death as a vehicle that will transport you to the presence of God your Father in Heaven

It is well with you in Jesus Name Amen

Afterthought 1:
Many people out there are still making a big error in this life. Their consciousness of the inevitability of death is making them take unwise steps, all in the name of "I want to enjoy life before I die". These unwise steps eventually lead to death (either immediately or ultimately)

Afterthought 2

Many people already agreed they will die one day, thus, decided to "enjoy life" (I.e indulging in sinful pleasures) before death. As I've explained up there, any "enjoyment" contrary to the Will of God is not only sinful, but poisonous (and will kill before one's time). There are several noble ways we can enjoy with ourselves and loved ones without committing a sin.

Afterthought 3

In John 11:25 and 26, Jesus said:
"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die."

So we understand that anybody who died in Christ will eventually find themselves in the presence of God in Heaven. They will remain connected to God, the Source of Life, and will enjoy His Life forever. On the contrary, those that died without Christ will find themselves being eternally separated from God. Hence, this category of people will remain conscious of their situation in an eternal state of torment (after leaving this earth when they die), and they remain rightly deemed "dead", because they are separated from God the Source of Life, forever.

Afterthought 4

We were told that many humans on their death-bed are usually displeased with how they lived their lives, and they always wish they could turn back the hands of time. Wisdom demands that we learn from those that have gone ahead of us, and strive to avoid making the mistakes they made. Many of our predecessors failed to live a significant life, as they naively devoted their lives to mundane temporal things and pleasures. Don't make such mistake. Live your life with eternity in view, and you should be encouraged to focus on permanence.

Afterthought 5

Once you understand the reasons God has put you on earth (your purpose), you should start living it out. God has made you to have an intimate relationship with Him, to accept His free gift of Salvation by making Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior, and to be a part of His family. Get busy pleasing God. Serve the body of Christ, preach Jesus Christ to the world through any medium, utilise your talents and abilities, and you will be glad.

I agree with all your points except the last one

No one is sure of afterlife just like no one knows when he will die

If God chooses that you make heaven (if there's any), you'll make it, otherwise, you're going to hell

You were given life to live, you don't know how you came to be. The person lying to you doesn't know either, but you just woke up one morning and began to lie to everybody because some white people handed you a hard cover text book, now you're forcefully trying to shove your opinion down everyone's throat. You further went on to call anyone who doesn't believe a fool.

You, a creature you claim you know the story of the creation. Are you saying you were on tour with the creator while he/she/they was/were creating?

You, a living being you claim to know what lies after death, are you saying you've died before seen the other side and returned?

If none of us has any certainty, why lie? Why force your doctrines and imaginations on others?

You saw all this via the inspiration of the holy spirit right? How is it authenticated? And why is it that if some people claim the holy spirit asked them to do somethings, some of you argue? If I claim now that the holy spirit asked me to drop my account info and everyone reading this should empty his account into mine, why would you say the holy spirit cannot say such a thing? And if you don't believe mine why should I believe yours?

A goat dies, monkey dies (Everyone: Oh! The goat is dead. A human dies (His soul blah blah blah, his spirit blah blah blah, and so on)).

Oga, when you die, your organs have failed. You're dead. No more no less.

Luk_14:26  If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

Luk_14:27  And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

Luk_14:33  So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.


Christ asked men to repent and believe the gospel the day they read/hear of Him


Have you checked the truths in these of late?

There's Heaven and Hell as well and God's desire is that all make Heaven. However, it's up to you to accept and meet up to the conditions set by God, you have the Holy Bible and in it are the basic and crucial steps to be with God. Jesus remains the only Way, Truth and Life to access God the Father.
