In this age of so-called enlightenment, many have turned away from the sound doctrine taught in Scripture, and have reinvented their own version of scripture to fit their own apostate beliefs. Iíve heard comments from by many dealing with the subject of Hell, people donít want to believe in an eternal place of punishment because itís not a pleasant subject, but they all want to believe in heaven.
The Bible sayís in 2 Timothy 4:3 ďFor a time will come when they will not listen to wholesome teaching, but to gratify their own evil desires will surround themselves with teachers who teach to gratify their own evil desires, because their ears are itching so to be tickled,Ē
In many churches they preach about how God is only about love, and kindness. People have forgotten that God is Holy, and does not tolerate ANY sin in his presence, therefore those who reject the true Gospel of Christ, will never enter into the Kingdom of God. People say, thatís not fair, how could a loving God do such a thing? In Godís perspective it is perfectly fair, he has given you a lifetime here on earth to make a decision on where you want to spend eternity, Smoking, or Non-Smoking!
You must receive Yeshua (Jesus) as your Messiah to be freely justified by faith in order to enter heaven. God poured out the wrath he was saving for you on His precious Son Jesus at Calvary, Christ endured it all on our behalf, you must believe this is true and accept Him as Lord and Savior.If you refuse Godís free offer and one of these dayís find yourself in Hell, then it is all your fault, not his. Ask yourself this question; can I really afford to risk my eternal soul?
What is your soul really worth anyway? What could you possibly offer God in payment for your eternal soul? The answer is: NADA! NOTHING! There is nothing you or I can give, or do for God in order to secure our way to heaven. There are churches and whole denominations that teach good works unto salvation, but that is NOT what God teaches us in His Holy Word. The Holy Scripture clearly teaches that all that is required to secure a manís Salvation is simple faith, faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross, nothing more, and nothing less.
Yes friend there is a terrible place called íHELLí, and it is not a party place either. Believe me when I tell you that this is not a place you want to end up at, at all. It is just what the Scripture teaches, a place of torment, forever and ever, AMEN. It is your choice to make, and it is all based upon your own decision to believe and respond to the Gospel message, or not. It will be based upon what you did in your life with Jesus Christ, whether you choose him as personal Lord and Savior, or you did not, and if you did not then you will experience the mighty wrath of a Holy God all by yourself, there will be no place to run, and no place for you to hide.
Dear Friend, Christ alone shouldered all of Godís wrath against you and I at the cross, he was the ultimate sacrificial lamb, sacrificed once and for all your behalf. Godís Son still waits for you today with his arms open wide, he wants to hug you and welcome you into Godís family even today. Why do you wait? Why do you fail to respond to such a great expression of love? Receive him today!
