All My Friends Will Be There...

"He loved to pronounce a curse-- may it come back on him.
He found no pleasure in blessing-- may it be far from him," (Psalm 109:17).

Those who want nothing to do with God in life certainly would not expect to spend eternity with Him in Heaven. You wouldn't want to be there, so you won't be. You'll go somewhere else. Just keep in mind that everything good is in the God you have refused, and this other place is complete division from Him - from everything good. It is Hell for a reason. God won't be there, thus no light, no life, no air, no water - the source of all that is good will be at the party whose invitation you declined.

Do not let yourself be convinced of an uproarious, jubilant afterlife away from God, surrounded by friends who equally spurned the Gospel in life. Hell is for those who did not want to spend their eternity with God, but the alternative is not what the world would have you believe. There will be no liberty or friendship in Hell; those are characteristics of God. Suffering, no matter how many may endure it, is an entirely isolated condition, and you will be alone in it.

Do not let this eternity befall you.
