Jesus Spoke About Hell Apr 12 2012


"...to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord." - 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9

Have you ever taken a minute to think about hell - who's going to be there and what it's all about? Did you know that Jesus spoke more about hell than He did about heaven?

Jesus tells an interesting 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 leftovers 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 that Lazarus might dip his finger in water and bring even a drop to cool his tongue because of the agony of the heat, but it was too late. They were separated by the great divide - forever.

Now, don't misunderstand me. I'm certainly not saying the poor will go to heaven and the rich will go to hell. This is just the parable Jesus chose to use. But have you noticed how many people act like hell doesn't exist? They believe everyone eventually goes to heaven because God is love. What if they're wrong? Jesus believed in hell. Do you believe He was wrong or do you believe He tells the truth?

A truth about eternity: until you believe in the bad news of hell, you can't understand the good news of Jesus. He came to save us from hell and guarantee us a place in heaven. The question is: what do you believe about hell? What Jesus says, or something else?

With reference to the rich entering heaven, In Matthew 19 (also in Mark 10 and Luke 18), Jesus said several things: in verse 23 and 24 that it is very difficult, as difficult as a camel passing through the eye of a needle. In verse 26 He states "With man,this is impossible, but with God ALL things are possible. (emphasis mine)

@ JCO...Religions are man made, however, Christianity is not. Jesus was God in the flesh who came down here to this earth to feel the same things we, the sinful creatures that we are, would feel. He came here to save us from eternal ruin. It seems like you have had a bad experience with "religion" or a church for that matter. If so I am truly sorry for that. But keep in mind we are all human and yes, sadly some "religious people" are bad examples through their actions/ words. I can promise you this, Jesus was God in human form , he was not a liar nor a lunatic. I encourage you, NO, I beg you to just give Jesus a try. I GUARANTEE if you give Him an honest effort you will see things in a better way. You will not be disappointed my friend.
