CONTEMPLATION FOR MORAL RECOVERYPROGRAMPREPARED BY : MOISES TENYOSA
Remember DEAR CHRISTIAN:You have but one soul to save, One God to love and to serve, One eternity to expect, DEATH will come soon, JUDGMENT will follow And thenHEAVEN or HELL forever!
“The dust return to its earth, from whence it came, and theDEATH spirit returns to God, Who gave it.” (Eccles. 12:7)At death, the soul is separated from the body. It is judged by God and rewarded with heaven, punished in hell, or sent to be cleansed in purgatory.
DEATH The body begins to corrupt and returns to the dust from which it came. On the top picture, the death of the just. Below, death of a sinner.
JUDGEMENTThe judgment which will be passed on each one of us immediately after death is called the particular judgment as soon as each soul leaves the body at death.
JUDGEMENT JESUS CHRIST is the JUDGE at the particular judgment. Before Him each soul must stand, The soul will stand in the awful presence of God the Son, to give an account of its whole life: of every thought, word, act and omission. On the left picture, judgment of the just. On the right, judgment of the sinner.
“It is appointed unto men to die once, but after this comes the Judgment” (Heb. 9:27)JUDGEMENT
HEAVENThose who are rewarded in heaven who die in the state of grace and have been purified in purgatory. They see God face to face, and share forever in His glory and happiness.
HEAVEN We do not obtain heaven w/o working for it. He that for God’s sake has suffered most and given up most will get the greatest reward in heaven.
“And God will wipe away every tear fromHEAVEN their eyes. And death shall be no more; neither shall be there mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore” (Apoc. 21:4)
HELL Those are punished in hell who die in mortal sin; they are deprived of the vision of God and suffer dreadful torments, especially that of fire, for all eternity. All who die in mortal sin, even with only a single unrepented and unforgiven mortal sin, are sent to hell.
HELL The condemned in hell will suffer the pain of loss and the pain of sense. The wicked in hell know what they rejected and lost: GOD. This pain will be their greatest torment of hell. For the human soul is made for God. The wicked will also suffer from fire and the torments inflicted on all the senses, the sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch.
“Depart from me,HELL accursed ones, into everlasting fire” (Matt. 25:41)
