A lot of people think the grave is the resting place, but it isn’t. There’s a heaven to gain and a hell to share. Straight is the gate and narrow is the way and few there be that find it. Broad is the road and its wide also. Hell enlarges itself daily. People live like they are going to live forever. It is appointed for us to die. The bible tells us this.
Preachers don’t want to tell you about hell, but this preacher wants to tell you about it. It’s a terrible place. There is no peace. It is a place of torment; a lake of fire that burns forever. It is a place you don’t want to go to, a place your friends and family don’t want to go. The bible tells us more about hell then heaven. Preachers don’t want to talk about it.
Some preachers don’t want to talk about sin either. It’s not a popular subject. We must tell you what is considered sin. People in the old testament were destroyed for their sins. God warned them over and over, but they would not change. God is a god of love, but he is also a god of wrath. He is a patient god, a loving god. He sent his only begotten son to die for us. He had no sin of his own. He took our sins to the cross. That surely was love.
It’s time for preachers to preach the word like the bible has been given to us. There should be no sugar coating. Just because you’re a good person, that’s not going to get you into heaven. The only way to heaven is through Jesus. Just because you go to church, that doesn’t give you a ticket to heaven. Only the blood of Jesus will get you there. Walking the straight and narrow will get you to heaven. You can’t make it on your own, you need Jesus.
Hell is for real. I hope you will believe that and make sure hell is not your final home. You need to make sure you make heaven your home.
Yours in Christ Jesus
