What does Christ Say?
43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
John 1027 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
Christ tells us that he will seperate the bad from the Good... the sheep from the goats. He tells us that his sheep are those that heard is voice... the good shepherd and did all that he asked of us.
Here is the passage concerning Christ's judgement of the nations at the Second
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
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:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Please note the words 'eternal life in John 10:28 and Matthew 25:46
We then have the White Throne Judgement before God at the end of the Millenium
where every one who did not accept the Father, nor the Son he sent, will be
7 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.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
You see anyone who does not accept Christ as Savior.. Anyone who does not
acknowledge the sacrifice and believe in Christ.......is destined for death.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
What we have to understand is that God does not want us to go to hell. God knew that mankind needed a redeemer so that they could be brought back into
fellowship with Him.
1 Timothy 2:5
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
God is holy and cannot allow anyone with sin into heaven. That is why we need
the righteousness of Christ to cover us. This must be done by believing in Jesus
Christ and by accepting Him as your Savior and submitting to Him as the Lord of
your life. Making Jesus your Savior means that you believe that Jesus died so
you could be forgiven.
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Christ died for man to bridge the gap between man and God. So that we can enter into the eternal life that was our destiny before Adam sinned in the Garden. God wants reconcilliation with Man... he only wants us to love us back as much as he loves us. He does not want us to go to hell... no more than I want my own children to make mistakes in their lives, that may indeed lead to their death..... however, I still love my children and that love is shown in my allowing them the use of their free will as they make their lives for themselves.
God will not force the issue. He has made his offer... it is up to us to sign the deal.
I have one question for all those who do not believe in Hell.
For me... I certainly do believe in hell... and because of Christ, I know I am not Going there.
For those who don't believe in hell, you may then think there is nothing to fear and you are not going to hell, because it doesn't exist.
Well If I'm wrong.... so what.. I can afford to be wrong.
Question is..... Can You?
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. -- John 3:16
