U.S. officials are confident Iran shot down a Ukrainian jetliner in the hours after the Iranian missile attack on U.S. targets earlier this week, CBS News has learned.
Today we are confirming what we already suspected to be true, that Iran shot down the Ukrainian jetliner with 176 souls on board, sending all of them to their eternal destiny in the blink of an eye. The only question it would seem is did Iran know they were shooting down a civilian plane, or did they fire on it mistakenly? Before you answer that, answer this. Those 176 souls had no idea they were flying into eternity, if you were to die tonight, like they did that night, would you go to Heaven or Hell?
“Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” James 4:14, 14 (KJB)
Every 24 hours, approximately 150,000 people for a whole host of reasons will die and leave this earth, never in this life to return again. One day you and I will take that trip also. As I write this, I am thinking of Anna Duffy-Schenck, Glenda Foor and Elwood Franz, all three who were dear friends and longtime NTEB readers. I am thinking of my childhood friend Dan Colfax died last summer of a sudden heart attack on his birthday. My brother Bob, both my parents, and the list goes on and on and on. Every time of think of any of them, it makes me wonder when my day will be. But I did something 29 years ago that tells me now, while I am living, where I will go when I do. I trusted Jesus Christ as my Saviour, who died, was buried and rose again on the third day, and paid the penalty for my sins. Because He lives, I will live forever with Him in Heaven. How about you? If you died tonight, Heaven or Hell? You can know for sure, click here to find out.

Presenting The Real Truth About Heaven And Hell
God has made salvation so simple a 6 year old child can grasp it. God did it all for you on Calvary, all you have to do is accept it or reject it. Do you know what Jesus was doing on the cross? He was making a payment on your sin debt, paid in full. And if you’re lost, that payment is just sitting there at the foot of Calvary’s cross waiting for you to come and claim it.
