What happens when you die?

Recently I was chatting with a friend and since both of us are getting to be ‘older than the average bear’, the topic of dying came up.  Not that either of us are in immanent danger of dying but some of our friends have.

So the question was, “what really happens when you die?”  Do you just get buried and wait till the final resurrection and then go either to heaven or hell?  Or what?

Well, of course, there are many verses in the Bible which indicate that you do not die, get buried, and wait.  Rather, a Christian goes immediately to heaven to be with God and all 'believers' (family, friends, and others) who have preceded them in death and have trusted in Christ for their salvation.

There is a wonderful book which is online and free to read (or print out if you have that many pages in your printer).  The book is “Dying Testimonies of Saved and Unsaved” by Solomon Benjamin Shaw.  It is a classic and a must read, especially if you are wondering about what happens when you die.

You will be encouraged by this book (IF you are a Christian) as you will discover that death bed experiences of many folks have affirmed the reality of Heaven and that you will go there IMMEDIATELY at your death.

But, if you are an agnostic, atheist, or whatever but not a Christian, you will be alarmed because again, death bed experiences affirm that there really is a Hell and you WILL go there if you do not accept the free gift of Salvation from Jesus Christ.

What is the link to this book, you ask.  Well, HERE’S THE LINK.
