Let me start today by asking you a couple of questions, "What in the world are you supposed to be doing with your life? What should your everyday life and activities look like?" Jesus gave us an answer to that in the book of Matthew, chapter 6. Apparently how we live on earth, God’s will for His people, should reflect what is happening in heaven. So what is happening and will continue to happen in heaven? The answers to that are vast depending on who you ask. Thankfully God’s Word doesn’t leave us in the dark when it comes to what we will do in heaven. So lets ask some of the big questions about everyday life in heaven and then let the Word of God give us the answers...

The fact of a literal heaven permeates the pages of God’s Word. It appears about 550 times in the Bible.

A headline in a Michigan newspaper read the following a few years ago "It May Be Harder to Get to Hell This Year."

There was a bridge that was the only way into the town that was going to be repaired and was going to take about a year for the project to be completed... A project that could cause Hell, Michigan to go bankrupt.

Unfortunately the real place called hell in the Bible is not going bankrupt and it is not hard to get to. In fact to get there all you have to do is nothing. Just pretend like there are no absolutes, that sin is no big deal, that Jesus is just a nice option, and that a loving God would never send people to hell if there even is a God. First off we must note that God absolutely exists as proven by scientific laws such as the Law of Cause and Effect, the Law of First Cause, and the laws of Thermodynamics. Second, God has clearly taught us that there is a literal place called "hell" as taught in Luke 16:19-31. It may surprise you to know that 11 of the 12 times the word "gehenna" (hell) occurs in the New Testament it is from the lips of the Savior Himself. Make no mistake about it, Jesus believed in a literal hell.

Introduction:

4,000 years ago in the midst of intense tragedy and pain a man named Job asked the question of the ages, "If a man dies, will he come back to life?" (Job 14:14).

Not long ago the Discovery Channel featured a show about the ten great mysteries of the world. Some of those mysteries included the lost city of Atlantis, UFO's, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster. But the overwhelming number one mystery was life after death. 

Transition:

So in the next 6 weeks we will be taking a look at what the Bible says about what lies behind the veil of death, what happens when we take our final breath, what heaven will be like and what we will do there, what hell will be like and what people will do there, whether purgatory is a real place, and other topics like whether animals will be in heaven, those that commit suicide will be in heaven and a host of other fun topics. 

Here's how we're going to tackle the topic of life after death... We are going to ask a host of questions that many people seem to be asking and discover the answers from the Word of God! So, here we go...
