What the Bible say about hell
Many churhes have stopped talking about hell fire but are pre occuppied talking about how to prosper on earth.
The bible called this a wicked thing because what shall it profit
man if he gain the whole world and lose his on soul(Mark8:36). In Europe, a lot of people thought talking about hell is inapprioriate because it can frighten the heart of men
However, what is the word of God saying
Proverbs 5:11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
13 And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
It is important now that you learn and know about hell so that you can escape it
In Complete in Christ Church we minister to souls about the danger of hell and how to escape it
1. Hell is eternal
It means once a soul enter hell, there is no escape route. It is for all eternity.Hell is a place of everlasting punishment
Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Isaiah34:10 It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever:
from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.
2.There is neither rest nor sleep in hell. No light but outer darkness
Souls in hell were decieved by Satan and that is why you must take this matter seriously because you will not be able to stand hell
Revelation 20:10 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.
3 Hell is Horror
Souls in hell are turned into horror. Worms are devouring them and you will never like to look on them twice
because they are now turned into ugly creatures
Isaiah 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me:
for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh
Job24:20 The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him;
he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.
4. Hell is full of all forms of unimaginable oppression and punishments
It means once a soul enters hell, there is no escape route. It is for all eternity.Hell is a place of everlasting punishment
Job 20:24 He shall flee from the iron weapon, and the bow of steel shall strike him through..
5. Souls of men are the fuel of Hell
Demons who are skilful to destroy shall destroy the souls of men
Ezekiel 21:31 And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath,
and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy.
32 Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land;
thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the Lord have spoken it..
6. In hell the souls of men shall be melted contnuosly
The bible warned us that human souls shal melt contnuosly with no stopping. Men and women shall be in unexplainable agony, oppression, hardship and everlasting regrets.
Ezekiel22: 20 As they gather silver, and brass, and iron, and lead, and tin,
into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire upon it, to melt it; so will I gather you in mine anger and in my fury,
and I will leave you there, and melt you.
21 Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst therof.
22 As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof;
and ye shall know that I the Lord have poured out my fury upon you.
7. God will not answer prayers of sinners in hell no matter how they cry
If your Pastors have thought you that God is merciful but did not mention to you that God is consuming fire then you do not have full knowledge of God.
God is fearful and terrible and would not answer any of your prayers in hell fire. That is why you must take the grace of God now when you can get it.
Ezekiel 8:18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity:
and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.
8. Mind of humans have never thought of the horror of Hell
Do not use human language and imagination to describe hell because it is impossible. All the sufferings on earth combine into one is not comparable to the sufferings of hell.
Hell is fearful, terrible and everlasting. God did not made hell for man but demons. Why would you end up with demons for all eternity?
Ezekiel 23:28 For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will deliver thee into the hand of them whom thou hatest,
into the hand of them from whom thy mind is alienated:
29 And they shall deal with thee hatefully,
and shall take away all thy labour, and shall leave thee naked and bare: and the nakedness of thy whoredoms shall be discovered, both thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.
9. Souls are taken to hell by their own iniquities and shall live with their sins forever
A wind of destruction will carry human souls to hell even against their wish. The bible confirm that men shall be held with the cords of their sins
Proverbs5:22 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.
10. In hell, all the secrets and hidden sins of men shall be made public to heaven and earth
All those who are hiding their sins and are refusing to do restitution on earth will do it before the whole universe at judgement day.
You will tell the strories of all your secret sins to demons and they will punish your souls while they mock. It is better for men to mock you
than for the whole heaven and hell to hear your secret sins and filth. Confess your sins and do your restitutions
Job20:27 The heaven shall reveal his iniquity; and the earth shall rise up against him.
