What Does Christ's Resurrection Mean for Humanity?

Christians certainly rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus. But why should the rest of the world care? A day will come when unsaved folks will have to give an account of why they didn't believe Christ and those who he sent to proclaim his plan of salvation.

The Apostle Paul wrote of the terrible price peopl will pay for rejecting the Lord in 2 Thessalonians 1:8 (KJV) when he warned of Christ returning, "In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:"

The Bible also contains this warning in 2 Peter 2:9 (KJV). "The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out  of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment  to be punished:"

Jesus also warned in a metaphorical way about the final judgment in Matthew 25:32 (KJV) when he said, "And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:" The sheep are believers and the goats are those who rebel against God.

And just as there will be people from every nation sent to hell, there will be members from every country and tribe in heaven. Revelation 7:9 (KJV)declairs, "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;"

I could write so much more on this topic but I'll save it for my next book called You Think You're Going to Heaven? Eternity awaits us all and it's the most important subject for each and every person to consider. We only have a short time to decide before we die or Christ returns. My hope is that my writing will save somebody from an eternity of agony in hell.
