The Bible states that God has placed eternity in every heart (Ecclesiastes 3:11). As such, every individual has a drive within them to seek after some sense of permanence. There is a thirst to be in a place where there is continual joy, happiness and contentment. Unfortunately for most, the directions taken or the pursuits followed all lead to a result that the Bible clearly defines as eternal death and destruction. In this book, Pastor Jack Abeelen examines the words of Jesus in Matthew chapter 7 where He compared two roads going through two gates leading to two opposite destinies - life and destruction. Regardless of the individual, all are on one of these two roads in life. As to which road and which destiny, that becomes a matter of choice for the individual. In conclusion, Pastor Jack will share how the reader can make the right choice: the choice to be on the right road that leads to eternal life.

About the Author

Pastor Jack Abeelen was raised in a Catholic home and attended parochial school from elementary grades through high school. At the age of 18 he heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ presented at a home study of a friend with whom he had grown up. In 1972 he gave his life to Christ and God began to work in his heart and call him to Himself. In 1980 Jack was given the opportunity to join a church staff as an assisting pastor and in 1985 went out to plant what today is the church he still pastors, Morningstar Christian Chapel in Whittier CA., a Calvary Chapel affiliate church. His gift of teaching is clearly seen in the easy and yet relevant way he communicates the Word of God.

He pays attention to context, resorts to biblical examples to teach principles and is confident that God’s Word will never go out void but will accomplish whatever God sends it for (Isa.55:10-13), one of His life verses. Pastor Jack’s teaching ministry can be heard throughout the US daily with his program: “Growing thru Grace” which airs on over 450 stations and is dedicated to the plain exposition of God’s Word. His desire is that those who hear his message might turn to the God who loves them and His only Son, Jesus Christ, who He sent to save them from their sins. Pastor Jack is married to his wife Debbie. He has two sons, Jacob and David, two beautiful daughter-in- laws, Christy and Cheri, and five grandchildren, Ashley, Connor, Haley, Carter, and Claire.

“So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”
Isaiah 55:11, NKJV.
