Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Someone you know is about to pass away. Will they enter delight or horror? Many people spend more time planning for a vacation than preparing for eternity. Perhaps it doesn't seem real that we will still exist--fully conscious and alive--beyond the grave. But it's true, and it calls for careful consideration. In this updated edition of "One Minute After You Die," bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges readers to study what the Bible says on this critical subject. Topics include: Can near-death experiences teach us anything about life after death?What does the Bible say about purgatory?What will heaven be like?Is it realistic to believe in hell?How can we prepare for our own final moment? With 500,000 copies in print, this classic work makes an encouraging gift for believers and a tasteful word of caution for the undecided.
