Reflections: Are You on the Wrong Side?

A sunset above mountains. Text reads now you're on the wrong side so close to heaven yet far from life everlasting.

If you saw a wildfire heading toward your family member’s house would you warn them to get out? If you knew a car was racing to a cliff would you try to stop it? I know your answer to these questions is a resounding yes.

This is what I see when I think of everyone who is not saved as they are on a path straight to hell and I can’t just sit back and let it happen.

Those who are not saved, meaning they do not believe in Jesus Christ and are fully trusting in him for salvation are literally headed into eternal flames.

There are only two sides you can be on, it is heaven or hell, there is nothing in between. Jesus Christ is the only way into heaven and you don’t want to be on the wrong side. Learn how to be saved from hell here.

I wrote a poem called “On the Wrong Side” as a way to warn everyone to be aware of what side they are on.

On the Wrong Side (Original Poem)

So close to heaven, yet so far
Lying there within darkness
Counting tears, counting scars.
And the torture is boundless.

So close to the light, to life everlasting.
You cry in regret, each time you remember those times you rejected forgiveness.
It was never good timing
Now your torment is fire and unending darkness.

You cry out to Him, but he will not listen.
How simple it seemed to only believe
And now you're in shame instead of forgiveness.
Endlessly floating so aware yet so empty.

This is not a dream, instead your endless reality.
Now you're on the wrong side
So close to heaven, yet far from life everlasting.

I hope this will capture your attention and that you will get on the safe side which is on the Lord’s side.
