The key to the future

Who holds the key?

It is an unfortunate development of the 20th century, that people consider themselves masters of their own destiny – in so many ways eg. Political, medical, scientific, environmental and religious. A prominent scientist said we might survive 100 years. Politicians  promise the answers to the world problems. Medical inventers endeavour to extend our lives forever.

Who holds the key?

The Lord Jesus in heaven said to John the apostle  “I am the first and the last, the living one. I died and behold I am alive forever more and I have the keys of death and hell” (Revelation 1)

HE holds the keys!   - the keys to everything, but in particular, the future destiny of all humans.

I quote Him again concerning heaven, the Father’s house.

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me.”  (John 14)
He is like a door opened into heaven, and all are welcome to come in through Him.

Again I quote:
“All judgement is committed unto the Son”  ( John 5)
He will have the final say!

For the believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, after death is ‘to be with Christ which is far better’

For the unbeliever, death is the doorway to eternal darkness and after the judgement of the great white throne, the lake of fire forever.

How important then, that we have a true and real relationship with HIM who holds the key.
