The realisation comes with a force of inevitability. All my thoughts are in an awareness of lostness. No hope of rescue. No hope of respite. No hope at all. What brought me here to this place of torment? Why was there no warning? No second chance? Is this life or mere existence? Not merely but unalterably true. Life as I knew it is gone and now I know that in that life Satan confused my thoughts and was content when I refused to acknowledge a Creator. Satan, too, has deserted me for what more can he do but wait for our destruction. He was interested in my life, not my death. His work was done, his intention fulfilled. No comfort, no other presence but regret the only awareness I am allowed, with an eternity before me in which to rue my stupidity, this torment my inheritance.
I have a memory of being annoyed when some do-gooder told me a story about a rich man and a beggar with the beggar entering eternal rest while the rich man was condemned. I was told that only I could choose my destiny but I didn’t know I was cementing myself in the wrong choice, my downfall. There is no sign of Father Abraham and no second chance.
Actually, I was often annoyed at those who persisted in their attempts to have me confess my sin when I would gruffly reply, “I’m fine, thanks.” Was my good life not enough?
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
