A short story of the Rich man and the Prophet.

The Rich man says: I have mansions and estate homes; garages with luxury cars; private islands; horse ranches and farms; not to mention billions invested in the world financial markets.
Anything I want I can have it!

The Prophet asks: Anything?

The Rich man says: Yes; anything! Just name it.

The Prophet asks: Do you have Eternal Life?

The Rich man answers: Who wants to live forever? I have everything in this life now. We all have to die anyway.

The Prophet says: Death is not the end!

The Rich man asks: What do you mean: “death is not the end”?

The Prophet explained sayimg: There is a day coming called the Day of Judgment when every human being will face final judgment for all the things done in our lifetime. The word of God says: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10-11).

The Rich man: Who is this Christ?

The Prophet says: Christ is the only begotten Son of God: JESUS: “the Christ of God” (Luke 9:20), the only Savior of human beings:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).

The Rich man says: I am not a believer.

The Prophet says: You would be wise to become a believer because the word of God says: “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3:18).

Furthermore, Jesus Christ says: “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15). “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:5). “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38).

The Rich man says: How can I perish when I am dead?

The Prophet says: There will be a Second Death. I suggest you read in the Holy Bible (Revelation 6:15-17, 20:11-15. KJV).

The Rich man says: I just don’t have the time. I’ll take my chances; I must run now; there is money to be made before I die.

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) says: “How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God” (Luke 18:24). “Woe unto you that are rich; for ye have received your consolation” (Luke 6:24).

‘Verily I say unto you, that there be some of them that stand here, which shall not [TASTE OF DEATH], till they have seen the Kingdom of God come with power’” (Mark 9:1).

“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the [RICH MEN], and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the [GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME]; and who shall be able to stand?” (Revelation 6:15-17).

“Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” (James 2:5).

“Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death” (Proverbs 11:4).
