Where do I go...
To be with
the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8 "... would prefer to be away from
the body and at home with the Lord."
& Earth. (2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21)
21:3-4 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the
dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be
his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. (4)
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death
or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
22:3-4 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of
the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. (4)
They will see his face...
A place of
torment. Hell. Luke 16:22-31 (Lazurus was poor man) "The time
came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham's
side. The rich man also died and was buried. (23) In hell, where he
was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus
by his side. (24) So he called to him, 'Father Abraham, have pity on
me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my
tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.' (25) "But Abraham
replied, 'Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good
things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted
here and you are in agony. (26) And besides all this, between us and
you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from
here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.' (27)
"He answered, 'Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my
father's house, (28) for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so
that they will not also come to this place of torment.' (29)
"Abraham replied, 'They have Moses and the Prophets; let them
listen to them.' (30) "'No, father Abraham,' he said, 'but if
someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.' (31) "He
said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they
will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.'"
Fire. 1 Corinthians 15:25-26 For he (Jesus) must reign until he has
put all his enemies under his feet. (26) The last enemy to be
destroyed is death.
20:14 Then death and Hell (Hades) were thrown into the lake of fire.
The lake of fire is the second death.
20:15 If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he
was thrown into the lake of fire.

is the day of salvation.
