Quick Overview

Life is hard, then you die. It's the truth

No matter how cleverly we disguise death with silk-lined caskets and magnificent bouquets, we are powerless to stop the inevitable: you will die. It is well and fine for your mourners to share heartfelt stories and mournful songs, but they will be going home, and you will still be in a casket.

Is that too blunt?

In Greek mythology, the river Styx separated the land of the living from Hades, the abode of the dead. When death came for you, the ferryman carried you across the river to the other side.

Are stories and myths of ancient civilizations enough for you when it comes to death? Or do you want to really know what will happen when you are left alone in the graveyard?

“By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread,” the Bible warns us,
till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” (Genesis 3:19, ESV). Life is hard, then you die. It’s not just a bumper sticker or an Internet meme. It’s the truth.

But there is hope. Do you want to know more?

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Shawn Boonstra


Pastor Shawn Boonstra is speaker/director for the Voice of Prophecy ministry. His broadcasts, live seminars and books have been a source of inspiration around the globe, and over the years, his live events have been presented on every continent except Antarctica. Each week, he hosts VOP’s flagship broadcast, Disclosure. The program—which features his wife, VOP Associate Speaker Jean Boonstra, and special guests—takes a look at current events and trends, with an emphasis on how the Bible’s perspective on today’s issues is more relevant than ever.

He also traverses the globe to hold live meetings, including his Revelation Speaks Peace series, which reveals that prophecy can be understood, and that it ultimately points to the hope we find in Jesus. He has held this series in places such as Rome, Portland, Phoenix, Andhra Pradesh (India), Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Seattle and Denver, with Raleigh planned for 2019. 

Shawn is also spearheading VOP’s effort to provide local churches with resources and training to make their community outreach even more effective. And every church is encouraged to start a local VOP Discover Bible School, which has already seen more than 1 million graduates. Stay tuned for details on Revelation 2020, which promises to be one of the biggest evangelistic initiatives in the history of the church.

In addition, events such as Shadow Empire and A Pale Horse Rides are approaching Bible prophecy and issues like religious liberty from new angles, and empowering local churches to reach out to their communities.

The ministry’s reach extends worldwide, and current projects include various outreach programs in Myanmar, the construction of a church in the Arctic, and a rehabilitation home for young girls who have been the victims of human trafficking in India.

Prior to coming to VOP in 2013, Shawn served as an associate ministerial director at the North American Division, where his role was to inspire, train and equip pastors and churches for evangelism. Before this assignment, he served for seven years as speaker/director for It Is Written International Television. In his early pastoral career, he served as speaker/director for It Is Written Canada and pastored a number of churches in British Columbia.

He currently lives in Loveland, Colorado, enjoys any activity that gets him out of doors and into the mountains, especially when his wife and two daughters join him. Learn more about Shawn and the Voice of Prophecy at vop.com
