Living With Eternity In Mind

DESTINATION: HELL
Chapter 3

I have a great burden for lost souls (unbelievers; those who reject Jesus our Lord). Several years ago, I prayed a prayer that most would NEVER even consider! I asked God to show me what Hell is like. Why would I ask for something that 99% of people would consider crazy? Because at that time, I did not have a heart that reached out to lost people. I wanted a soft tender heart that really cared about what happened to the lost souls without Jesus. I wanted to know more about Hell, so I might be more diligent in telling others about Jesus; that He, and He alone, could save them from this horrible, agonizing, eternal place. God answered my prayer. The burden I carry is a constant one, and a heavy one! When God gives me poems, so many of them are on Hell. I know some think I speak harsh and cruel words; and that I should speak on God’s love, not His wrath and judgment.
First of all, I don’t take credit for any poems I write, nor any of the books I write. I ask God to give me ‘words’ and He does. I must write what He tells me to write.
Second, if we (whosoever) are teaching God’s Holy Word, we must teach the whole Word, not just what people want to hear.
If we teach God’s love and the bliss of Heaven, then we must teach God’s wrath and coming judgment and the horrors of Hell. If we don’t we are false teachers, because we are not bringing all the Truth in God’s Word! God does indeed have two sides!
Third, I teach and write about Hell because I want to steer as many as possible away from there. What I do I do out of love. I don’t want anyone to suffer eternal destruction in the torments of Hell (2 Thes.1:9).
Fourth, we are to imitate our precious Lord. Jesus taught more on Hell than any other subject (to my knowledge). WHY?? Because of His tremendous love for us. He doesn’t want anyone to go there. But friend, no one can make that decision for you. You have a free will. You must make the decision . . . Heaven or Hell?  Jesus or the devil? You are accountable for what you decide, no one else. You will not be able to blame another if some day you find yourself in this awful place of no return. I pray you know the Saviour.

Is there really a literal Hell?
Yes! There most certainly is!

Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:  [KJV]  . . . As you shall see, “everlasting fire” is only one of the many names for Hell.
Luke 16:19-31  There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. 27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: 28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. 29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. 30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. 31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. [KJV]
Jesus gives us a brief glimpse of Hell. Many people say this is just a story. This is a parable; a simple, yet obscure story from which we can learn a lesson. It conveys a truth, yet for the majority of people, that truth is hidden, because their hearts and minds are closed to Jesus. Yes, this Scripture is a story, and I believe it is a true story from real life, even giving the name of Lazarus, but I suggest you pay close attention, because of the truth it reveals.

This portion of Scripture is Jesus’ own personal description of Hades, the present place (home, Hell) of the unsaved dead; those who insist on rejecting Christ Jesus. Jesus is telling us that IMMEDIALELY after a person dies physically, he (or she) enters Hades ( the holding place of all unbelievers, until judgment). And immediately, there is anguish and woe and sorrow, and memory. The rich man has a tremendous thirst and there is no water to quench it. The rich man now becomes the beggar, and Lazarus is now the rich man!          

Ecc. 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. [KJV]  . . . The bodies of all who die today go to the grave, but their spirit returns to God who gave it. The spirits of believers go to be with Christ (immediately).  2 Cor. 5:8  We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.  [KJV]  . . . All spirits return to God who gave them; but unbelievers do NOT go into the presence of Christ . . . they are sent to Hades as the above Scripture so plainly states.

Luke 16:27-28  Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: 28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. [KJV] . . . Notice two things about the rich man: (1) He has a memory. He remembers! Any time an unbeliever hears or reads the Truth about Jesus and the salvation only He can bring, and rejects it, he will suffer eternal torments remembering that he should have listened. But once a soul is in Hell, there is NO exit . . . ever! (Lu.16:26). (2) The rich man has concern for the ones he has left behind. He desperately wants them to repent before it’s too late. If the lost could return, we would hear a salvation message beyond compare! But that won’t happen.

There are many who think multitudes would be saved if someone returned from the dead. Jesus did return from the dead, and they didn’t believe Him, any more than they believed Moses and the prophets (Old Testament).  John 6:39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. [KJV]  . . . There will be NO more opportunity to turn to Jesus after death.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: [KJV]
ALL the unsaved dead (unbelievers) are in the present day Hell (Hades), awaiting judgment. After their resurrection and judgment before the Great White Throne (Rev.20:11-15), they will be cast into the “lake of fire” (the final and eternal Hell). ALL who have died without Christ will be cast into Hell.

Lake of fire.

Rev. 19:20  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark

Rev. 20:7  And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, [KJV]

There will be absolutely NO escape from this awful place. NO doors, NO windows, NO light, NO water; just eternal agony.

I wonder if you who are reading this, are paying attention to the horrible things God has to say about Hell; and I still have more Scripture to bring forth. Everlasting destruction (2 Thes.1:8-9) does NOT mean annihilation. The Bible does NOT teach annihilation! It means total and absolute separation from God, the only source of true life.
         
Why would a loving God send anyone to Hell? My friend, He gives you every possible chance to believe Him and accept Jesus as your Saviour. He does NOT want you to go to this place. He loves you and wants you to spend eternity with Him. But, when a person refuses to obey the Gospel, God has no other alternative but to send you to Hell. Actually, He does not send you there; YOU do it yourself! To obey the Gospel means that you must believe (in faith).You must realize and admit (the hard part) that you are lost and undone; an enemy of God; and that you are dead (spiritually) in your sins and trespasses. This is called repentance. Then you simply trust Jesus with your all. Acts 16:31  Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved . . . . [KJV] 

Jesus can tell you much better than I can!

John 8:24  I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. [KJV]
John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. [KJV] . . . Jesus Himself wars over and over again about Hell and its eternal agony. Please listen to Him! You CANNOT enter Heaven without Christ Jesus. Rejection of Him means Hell.
  
Wicked (unbelievers) turned into Hell. 

Psalm 9:17  The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. [KJV] 

Mal.4:1  For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. [KJV] 

Matthew 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; [KJV]
Matthew 13:49  So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, [KJV]

Chief ones of the Earth are there. Isaiah 14:9  Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. [KJV] . . . Many world leaders and mighty kings are there.

Never full.

Pro. 27:20  Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied. [KJV]
Isaiah 5:14 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. [KJV]
Hab. 2:5 Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people: [KJV]

Satan will go to Hell.

Isaiah 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. [KJV]
Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:  [KJV]
Rev. 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,  [KJV]
Rev. 20:7-10 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, [8] And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. [9] And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. [10] And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. [KJV]

Child of Hell.

Matthew 3:12  Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. [KJV]
Matthew13:38  The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; [KJV]
Matthew 23:15  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. [KJV]
Eph. 2:1-3 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;  [2] Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:  [3] Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.  [KJV]
Eph. 5:6  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.  Col. 3:5-6  Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:  [6] For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:  [KJV]

Eternal separation from God.

2 Thes. 1:8-9 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,  in flaming fire, bringing judgment on those who don't know God and on those who refuse to obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus. [KJV]    

If anyone dies ‘in their sins’ (without receiving Christ as their personal Saviour) he dies in direct disobedience to the Gospel; and he is forever separated from the goodness of God. Anyone who chooses this road will be punished with “everlasting destruction”. God’s Words . . . not mine!

The wicked (unbelieving) in eternity have: NO peace. NO joy. NO rest. NO contentment. NO relief. NO God.

Hell is absolutely a definite PLACE! It is there for ALL who refuse to believe God and keep rejecting His precious Son. Only Jesus can keep you from Hell. Accept Him today, now!
