Dr. T. SATYA RAO
Every man born on this planet earth is given
by God a choice between two destinations. The
man himself has to choose either of them. One
choice is the glorious city of God, called the
heavenly Jerusalem, which is also known as new
Jerusalem. Another one is the eternal lake of fire
called Hell. God gives freedom to every man to
go either to hell or to new Jerusalem, but both
are permanent, eternal and remain forever and
ever.
Man has no death which can make him
extinct. To God our Creator everyone is alive.
For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living:
for all live unto him (Luke 20:38). Man has to
live either in the eternally suffering place, lake of

fire or in the eternally glorious heavenly city.


God shows both hell and heaven to man, but
warns him to choose the right one. Bible is full of
such illustrations. In the Garden of Eden God kept
two special trees. One is for the knowledge of
good and evil. God prohibited man from eating
the fruit of it (Gen. 2:17). Man disobeyed and the
result is curse. The other is the Tree of Life.
Man missed it as Gods offer is withdrawn from
the defiled man (Gen 3:24). Similarly God kept
two ways before His people Israelites. He spoke
through His servant Moses. See, I have set
before thee this day life and good, and death and
evil. I call heaven and earth to record this day
against you, that I have set before you life and

WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE

death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life,


that both thou and thy seed may live (Deut.
30:15, 19). Jesus Himself gave similar direction.
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate,
and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction,
and many there be which go in thereat: Because
strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which
leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it
(Matt. 7:13, 14).
Now let us see what the Scriptures say about
new Jerusalem and about eternal lake of fire.
New Jerusalem is called the city of the living
God. It will be a glorious eternal residence of 1)
God Himself, 2) Jesus the Lamb, 3) All Angels,
4) Regenerated members of the Church, and 5)
Old Testament saints. In the middle will be a river
that flows from the throne of God down to the
city. The Tree of Life will be on either side of the
river (Rev. 22:1, 2).
Paul explained: You have come to Mount
Zion; to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the
living God. You have come to thousands upon
thousands of angels happily gathered together.
You have come to the congregation of the firstborn.
Their names have been written in heaven. You
have come to God, the Judge of all men. You
have come to the spirits of good people who have
been made perfect. You have come to Jesus. He
made a new agreement between God and man.
And, you have come to blood for sprinkling. It is
saying better things than Abels blood (Heb.
12:2224 SEB).
In the Bible God gave the citys dimensions,
foundations, wall, gates and streets. The city was
perfectly square, as wide as it was long. The angel

May, 2012

measured the city with his measuring stick: it was


fifteen hundred miles long and was as wide and
as high as it was long. The angel also measured
the wall, and it was 216 feet high, according to
the standard unit of measure which he was using.
The wall was made of jasper, and the city itself
was made of pure gold, as clear as glass (Rev.
21:16-18 GNB).
The foundation stones of the city wall were
adorned with all kinds of precious stones such as
jasper, sapphire, agate, emerald, onyx, carnelian,
yellow quartz, beryl, topaz, chalcedony, turquoise,
amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls;
each gate was made from a single pearl. The street
of the city was of pure gold, transparent as glass
(Rev. 21:1921).
Then what is missing conspicuously in the
holy city, new Jerusalem? The temple, the sun,
and the moon. And I saw no temple therein: for
the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the
temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun,
neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of
God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light
thereof (Rev. 21:22, 23).
The glory of new Jerusalem is astounding and
fantastic. It is indescribable. The light which comes
from our loving Lord Jesus, when reflects on the
invaluable twelve types of precious stones, the
celestial city is illuminated with heavenly colors.
That the city of Gold, for anyone to live in eternally,
is what our heavenly Father only can do! God
created the earth and the cosmos by His word as
seen in Psalms 33:6, By the word of the Lord
were the heavens made; and all the host of them
by the breath of his mouth. But to prepare our

WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE

eternal home heavenly Jerusalem, He has been


working year after year and by now centuries
passed. How great it would be then? Let us hear
what John says, And I John saw the holy city,
new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of
heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her
husband (Rev. 21:2).
New Jerusalem is a real, literal, splendid
celestial city. There will be no more death, tears,
nor crying, or pain. It will be a spotless home
without curse. The curse that began in the Garden
of Eden is removed. And God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no
more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither
shall there be any more pain: for the former things
are passed away (Rev. 21:4). And there shall
be no more curse: but the throne of God and of
the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve
him (Rev. 22:3).
The Bible tells us how Abraham was
longing for that heavenly city. Abraham was
waiting for a city with foundations that God would
design and build. For he looked for a city which
hath foundations, whose builder and maker is
God (Heb. 11:10). This vision made Abraham a
totally changed person and he was willing to obey
God to any extent. Abraham possessed much
wealth, but the wealth never possessed Abraham
because Abraham believed that his wealth was
the heavenly city. Paul also had such a wonderful
vision. He went to Paradise as God took him to
see. He tells this story in 2 Cor. ch. 12. After
visiting such a glorious place he was able to tell,
For here have we no continuing city, but we seek
one to come (Heb. 13:14). He further says, For
to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain (Phil.

May, 2012

1:21). Many other saints of God had such


revelations. Even apostle John was mentioning
about it in Rev. 21:2. If a man misses this new
Jerusalem his alternative is eternal hell.
Now let us think of eternal lake of fire:
In the Bible we have this term hell for
those who are eternally lost. In the Greek language
there are two words for hell Hades and Gehenna.
These are two different places of suffering. One
is in the heart of the earth temporarily. Today it
holds many lost people. In Luke 16 the Lord Jesus
told about a rich man who was suffering in the
hell. It is the same place in the heart of the earth.
But the final place is lake of fire. It is synonymous
with Gehenna. After the Millennial reign of the
Lord Jesus Christ on the earth the Hades or hell
which is now in the heart of the earth, will be
shifted to the lake of fire. In the Scriptures this
lake of fire is described as a place of everlasting
fire (Matt. 18:8), a place where the smoke of
their torment ascendeth (Rev. 14:11), a place
where their worm dieth not (Mark 9:48), a place
of outer darkness (Matt. 8:12). Those who are
thrown here are the people who are eternally
separated from God and that seperation is called
second death (Rev. 20:6; 21:8).
The Bible gives us the list of people who
are not eligible for the kingdom of God or new
Jerusalem, but thrown into hell. Shut out from
the city shall be the depraved, the sorcerers, the
impure, the murderers and the idolaters, and
everyone who loves and practises a lie! (Rev.
22:15 J.B. Phillips NT). They commit sexual
sin. They worship false gods. They commit
adultery. They are perverts. They are
homosexuals. They steal they are greedy. They

WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE

are drunkards. They say terrible things about


people. They rob people (1 Cor. 6:9, 10
SEB). But as for the cowards, the faithless and
the corrupt, the murderers, the traffickers in sex
and sorcery, the worshippers of idols and all
liarstheir inheritance is in the lake which burns
with fire and sulphur, which is the second death
(Rev. 21:8 J.B. Phillips NT). If someones name
was not found in the Book of Life, he was thrown
into the lake of fire (Rev. 20:15 SEB).
However, a sinner can avoid hell and go
to heaven by only one way. The Lord Jesus Christ
declared, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John
14:6). To save the man the Lord Jesus Christ
came from heaven to earth and offered His own
life for the atonement of mans sins. The Bible
declares, For when we were yet without
strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly
(Rom 5:6). But God commendeth his love
toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us (Rom 5:8). For if, when we
were enemies, we were reconciled to God by
the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled,
we shall be saved by his life (Rom 5:10). This is
the reason why the Bible warns, Neither is there
salvation in any other: for there is none other name
under heaven given among men, whereby we must
be saved (Acts 4:12).
Two thieves were crucified along with
Jesus, one on the right hand and another on the
left. They were branded criminals, sinners. One
of the criminals humbled before the Lord,
confessed his sins and prayed to Him saying,

May, 2012

Lord remember me when there comest into thy


kingdom (Luke 23:42). In answer, the Lord told
him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou
be with me in paradise (Luke 23:43). Paul openly
confessed how he was saved by Lord Jesus
Christ. O wretched man that I am! who shall
deliver me from the body of this death? I thank
God through Jesus Christ our Lord (Rom.
7:24, 25). This is a faithful saying, and worthy of
all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the
world to save sinners; of whom I am chief (1
Tim. 1:15). That is why Paul was able to say, We
are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent
from the body, and to be present with the Lord
(2 Cor. 5:8). Now we know why people go to
hell. It is so because they refuse to confess their
sins and receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their
personal Savior. He that covereth his sins shall
not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh
them shall have mercy (Prov. 28:13). Thus even
the vilest of sinners can be saved from the wrath
of God.
Dear Reader, if your new address is
eternal lake of fire, whose fault is it? Here is a
good exhortation from the Lord Jesus: For what
is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in
exchange for his soul? (Matt. 16:26).
