The Unbelievers

This is the day the LORD has made rejoice. 

When one dies as an unbeliever what does the bible say about where they go?

Today, when an unbeliever dies, he follows the Old Testament unbelievers to the torment side of Hades. At the final judgment, Hades will be emptied before the Great White Throne, where its occupants will be judged prior to entering the lake of fire (Revelation 20:13–15).

Prior to Christ’s resurrection, Hades was divided into two realms: a place of comfort where Lazarus was (Abraham’s bosom or Abraham’s side) and a place of torment where the rich man was (hell). Lazarus’s place of comfort is elsewhere called “paradise” And the two places were divided. But they could see one another. 

This would seem to mean that after ones death, ones fate is sealed.

Who are the unbelieving? Those who do not believe they need a Savior. Those who don't believe that Jesus' death on the cross and the shedding of HIS blood paid their debt. Those who do not repent but have died in their sin. Those who don't believe in Jesus. 

It's a scary thing to read about unbelievers and their fate. Yet, many will spare upsetting the apple cart to tell their loved ones about Jesus. And their eternal fate if they don't come to Jesus.

Folks, you are not saved by knowing of Jesus. Or going to mass. Or reciting the rosary. Or praying to saints. Or Mary. No. Jesus said to be born again you must be born of water and Spirit. This means that you receive the Holy Spirit within you. When you repent, are baptized for the remission of sins and believe that JESUS IS THE TRUTH THE WAY AND THE LIFE. And believe on HIM who was sent. Because we are all sinners in need of a Savior.
