A collection of 45 must know bible verses about heaven and eternity. Everyone on earth will die one one day as the bible clearly states in Hebrews 9:27 – “Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment“. So for those who do no believe in a life after death, I say this again, when we die we have 2 places to go to; 1) Heaven 2) Hell. Where we go to is completely our choice.
Remember this that no man on earth can enter into God’s kingdom (Heaven) except through Jesus Christ. All you need to do is repent and accept Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.
