Do you believe in Hell? Jesus does.
2 Thessalonians 1: 8-9 NLT. In flaming fire, bringing judgement on those who don't know God and on those who refuse to obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with eternal destruction, forever separated from the Lord and from his glorious power.
In the Bible we find that Jesus spoke more about hell than he did about heaven. Jesus taught in parables when He was on earth. He once told the parable about a rich man and a beggar named Lazarus. The beggar sat each day at the gate of the rich man’s house, hoping for some left overs from the rich man’s feast, but they never came. Both men died. Lazarus, the poor man, went to be with God, and the rich man went to Hell. Seeing Lazarus across a great divide. He begged Lazarus would just dip his fingers in water and give him a drop to cool his tongue from the agony of the burning heat, but it was too late. They were separated forever.
Now I’m not saying that the poor will go to heaven and the rich will go to hell, this is just a parable that Jesus chose to use. But just like back then, people today still act like hell doesn’t exist. They believe that everyone eventually goes to heaven because God is Love. What if they are wrong? After all Jesus believes in hell. What do you believe? Do you believe that he is wrong or that he tells the truth?
The truth is, until you believe the bad news of hell, you can’t understand the good news of Jesus. He came to save us from hell and to guarantee us a place in Heaven. My Question is to you, what do you believe about Hell? What Jesus said? Or something else?
Now we all sin and fall short of the Glory of God, But when we repent our sins and accept God’s salvation, Jesus the Christ, then we are on our way to eternal heaven and not eternal hell. Your choice.
God gives us free will. Make the choice today. God loves you.
Prayer.: O precious Heavenly Father, I do believe in your son who came and died on the cross for my sins, and I thank you. And I pray that you fill me with your strength that I may live a life that will make me worthy to live with you in eternal happiness in heaven. I want no part of hell. Keep me in your will. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
God bless you all.
