The Bible says:
“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36).
Many in ultra rich communities are building extravagant underground bunkers. Some are asking “Do they know something we don’t?”
I’m asking a different question: Do they know that this life is but a blip in time, and that our soul lives on in one of two places – heaven or hell?
AMERICA’S WEALTHY AND ELITE BUILDING BUNKERS IN LARGE NUMBERS
Being prepared for some sort of cataclysmic event, whether it be political, natural, or manmade, is never ill-advised, but the world’s elite are doing so in record numbers as of late.
This of course begs the question: Is there something disastrous on the horizon that the rest of the American people should be preparing for? Given the alarming number of luxury bunkers being constructed in the last few years, all signs point to yes.
“There are tens of millions of ordinary Americans that are feeling really good about the future now that Donald Trump has won the election, but meanwhile the elite are feverishly constructing luxury bunkers at a pace unlike anything we have ever seen before. So why are so many among the elite preparing for an imminent ‘apocalypse’ when tens of millions of other Americans are anticipating a new era of peace and prosperity? Are they smarter than most of the rest of us, or are they simply being paranoid?
“Without a doubt, something is going on among the elite. Earlier today, WND published an article that discussed the fact that wealthy people ‘are quietly moving away from major cities’ all over the globe because of concerns about security…
“‘Widespread media reports as well as independent investigations from groups such as New World Wealthsuggest wealthy people around the globe are quietly moving away from major cities because of fears of social instability. Increasing crime, terrorism and rising racial tensions have all been identified as factors driving the exodus. Even the Daily Beast reported the introduction of large numbers of Muslim refugees into Europe has made once prosperous areas fraught with danger, in the opinion of some security experts.’” -source
When we are born, we begin to die. Sounds morbid, right? Actually, it’s very true. God allows us a specific number of days on this earth. He alone knows the day in which our souls will be required of us. It is what we “choose” in this life that determines where our souls will live on for eternity. Specifically – what do we choose to do with God’s Son Jesus Christ?
The one who dies with the most toys wins?
Sounds pretty ridiculous, but it seems that many people are of this mindset. Material possessions, large and extravagant homes, diamond jewelry, a collection of classic cars – you name it, the rich have it.
It is not a sin to be rich
But it IS a sin to allow your money and possessions to become your idol. There are many people who are born again from above, yet are very rich. You will see these wealthy Christians giving enormous amounts of money to Christian organizations to help the poor.
I knew a family who was extremely wealthy and had a huge home. They felt that God allowed them to have this home for His glory. They opened their home to the church. The youth group would hold events there. They took in the homeless. This is a perfect picture of why money in and of itself is not evil. It is what is done with the money.
Are you saved?
Have you thought about heaven and hell? Do you think that your good deeds have outnumbered your evil deeds, and that is how the Lord will judge whether you come to heaven or not? You have been deceived by the evil one.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)
Yes – ALL of us have sinned and we fall short of God’s glory and perfection! God cannot abide sin in His presence. So, how do we get to heaven? It’s only by Grace through faith. Our works will never get us into heaven. Repenting of our sin, and trusting the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sin – this is what gets us into heaven when we die.
The Father sent His only Son, Jesus, to pay for our sins on the Cross. Jesus took all of our sin upon Himself and died an horrific death on the Cross of Calvary. But the grave could not hold Him, and He rose to life on the third day. Repenting of your sins and agreeing with God that you ARE a sinner, and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross for the forgiveness of your sins – this is how you are saved!

If you have never trusted Jesus for your salvation – do it today. Where you will spend eternity will depend on what you did with God’s Son Jesus.
If you have made a decision to trust and follow Jesus Christ – the angels in heaven are rejoicing and singing over you!
