There is an expression my mother always used to say to me, "You can't have your cake and eat it too!" In other words, you cannot enjoy two desirable things at the same time.
Jill: "There's an apartment across the street from me, much bigger and prettier than mine, and it even costs less. I'd really like to rent it—but I don't want to go to the trouble of moving."
Jane: "You can't have your cake and eat it too."
Fred: "I want to lose weight, but I'm not willing to change the way I eat."
Alan: "You can't have your cake and eat it too."
If we want change, then we must be willing to do what is necessary to obtain it, but in the above examples, neither Jill, nor Fred will get what is wanted without making changes according to the thing/desire they want.
In the book of John, Chapter 14, verses 1-7 Jesus, in speaking to His disciples regarding the Kingdom of God says, "1 Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 2 There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.” 5 “No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. 7 If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!"
Many concerned, believe they will achieve 'THIS' - as in heaven, paradise, or eternal security for their soul upon death, without faith in Jesus Christ, author of life, promised Messiah, Savior of the world. And yet, if we were to read no more than the scripture just shared, from the ONE who claimed to be God, and proved it, V6 alone says much, that only through Him will 'THIS' heaven, paradise be experienced. And V7 confirms even more again, that because your faith is in Him alone, not man or his religion, you are also seeing and trusting in God.
John 1:1-5 further confirms, "1 In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He existed in the beginning with God. 3 God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. 4 The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it."
In regards to the post title, 'This or This - you can't have both,' all of the above thus far, pertain to the first 'THIS' ... in other words, Heaven, Paradise ... with evidences to support it's claims, above and beyond logic alone, and to the moon and back.
Everything below, is in reference to the 'or THIS' part of the post title, while appreciating as stated that, we cannot have both, in no way, shape, or form, contrary to every effort by the devil, to twist, corrupt, and deceive the mind of man.
It would be fair to say that the graphic immediately above, is a modest depiction of the other side of paradise, the Armageddon yet to come, the desolation of the world as we know it, today, tomorrow, or a hundred years from now, that separates paradise from hell, a divide known as a chasm, as shared quite simply, yet descriptively, in Luke 16:19-31 the story of the rich man and Lazarus (poor man) - with full consciousness of our whereabouts after death, with no transporting after arrival from one side of the chasm to the other, or connecting with those left behind, as the rich man was pleading to do, as a warning to his family.
With utmost respect, truly and honestly and humbly as possible, loving all judging none, you, the reader, must not take any of this post lightly.
By the time you read this, before, or after the PlanDemic has been exposed to the world for the lie it has been, holding the entire global populous hostage, and seeing for yourself the monsters, the demonic minions, who were caught, arrested, tried by a Military Tribunal, imprisoned or executed for their crimes against humanity, from treason to such hideous and satanic actions as child sacrifice, murder, testing, and torture, and cannibalism, do you really want to chance life after death without accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior?
Being a good person, someone who has, or simply minds their own business, lives life, has a family, good job or jobs, etc., is not going to get you into heaven/paradise!
John 1:1-5 above is referring to Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah and Savior of the world, God incarnate *** and not 'allah' of the Muslim faith, founded by one man only; not buddha of the Buddhist faith, founded by one man only; not Confucius of Confucianism, founded by one man only; but JESUS CHRIST LIVING GOD of the inerrant and infallible living word found within the pages of Holy Bible, sixty-six God-inspired books only, nothing added and nothing taken away from said living word.
In other words, being good, is not good enough. Believing man, or man's religion, founded by one man only, without one piece of evidence anywhere on God's amazing universe to support their ideas of god, is not good enough.
Faith and Faith Alone in Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven/paradise -
... the only way to secure your soul for all eternity, to live even after dying, as described by Jesus in John 11:25 that says, Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.
So, just as the post title states 'This or This - You Can't Have Both,' there is one guarantee - and that is the fact that you are going to end up in one place or the other.
CONSIDER: As a good person in your sight, in your own mind, if you choose not to place your trust, by faith alone, in Jesus Christ, appreciating that Acts 4:12 tells us plainly, "There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved," you are destined to spend all eternity, day in, day out, with the same evil people, monsters, as the PlanDemic exposed, all of which will follow the result of Armageddon.
2 Peter 3:9 "The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent."
John 3:16 "For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life."
Romans 10:9-10 "If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved."
Invest in yourself! Invest in truth!
Consider the purchase of one or all four Holy Spirit led authored books HERE or HERE addressing 'How & why we must connect with Jesus' - 'Man gives us religion - God gives us truth' - 'Lesson to live by' (powerful on grace & gratitude) - and 'Super hero's for Jesus' as a grass roots learning tool ... I thank you ... and I thank you, Jesus, amen and amen!
