"And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name." Revelation 14:11
If you are not a believer you have likely stopped reading this already. We love the idea that Heaven is for ever. But we must remember that Hell is forever too. The ultimate results of sin is unending separation from God. Because human beings are created in God's image with an inborn thirst for fellowship with Him, separation from God will be the ultimate torment and misery.
Sin always brings misery (eventually). But in this life we can choose to repent and restore our relationship with God through Jesus Christ. In eternity there will no longer be opportunity for repentance. If in this life we choose to be independent of God, in the next life we will be separated from Him forever.
Nobody is forced to choose eternal separation from God, and nobody suffers this fate by accident. Jesus invites all of us to open our hearts to a personal relationship with Him. If we do this, we will enjoy everlasting fellowship with Him. And when we finally get to be with Him in person, there will be no more tears, no more pain, no more struggle, forever...in His grip.
