The Inside Story of Your Future Life
Sometime soon, we’ll all be in another world. What will it be like? The inner-workings of death seem hidden from us, like a room with the lights turned off. But God has not left us completely in the dark. In the Bible, God tells us the Inside Story of Your Future Life. In this series, discover what God’s Word says about death itself, the resurrection of the body, God’s final judgment, heaven and hell, and the relationship between these things and the way you live your life now.

“Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Revelation 7:10) All of us are on our way, either to something that is infinitely better, or to something that is infinitely worse.
