Commentary from Pastor Michael White:  

“There is Edom, her kings and all her princes, who despite their might are laid beside those slain by the sword; they shall lie with the uncircumcised, and with those who go down to the Pit.” – Ezek 32:29

In Ezekiel 32, God is listing all the great nations who went to war with Israel. Egypt would go down to the Pit (v 18). Assyria would be there too, “All of them slain, fallen by the sword” (v 22). Elam could not avoid death (v 24), nor could Meshech and Tubal. All of these nations were experts at war; but at the end of their reign, they had nothing to show for it. All of them went the way of the world. All of them – because they did not know God – would end up in Hell.

Heaven is all that matters. You can build the biggest empire the world has ever seen; but if you don’t know God, all of it is a waste. If you don’t have God, you have nothing; but if you have Him, you have it all!

“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?” – Matt 16:26


Father, I am making a decision today to live for eternity. I don’t want to spend my life chasing after temporal rewards. I want You! I want to live for Heaven, in Jesus’ name.
