The thought of people suffering for eternity, in hell, is abhorrent to me.
I can’t imagine it. Yet it’s real.
The bible is full of God’s warnings about the punishment of sin.
He IS a loving God, but he is also completely holy and pure, and he cannot abide sin. Hell is necessary, because of God’s nature.
God is so merciful!
He has provided a way for us to be pure and holy, through the death and resurrection of his son, Jesus Christ.
Through him we are saved. Without him, we are doomed to eternal suffering, in hell.
In the following video, David Wilkerson is speaking about the reality of hell. I pray it moves each of us to repentance, and to pray for the lost.
Do you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour?
Do you have a personal relationship with him?
If not, do you realise your need for him?
Have you become lukewarm in your walk, and realise your need to recommit your life to Jesus?
Here is a prayer you can say.
Dear Jesus, I am a sinner, and I need you. I thank you for going to the cross to die for me, and for rising again.
I am sorry for everything I have ever done wrong, and I ask you to please wash me clean. I ask you to come into my life to be my Lord and saviour, and I surrender to You.
Please fill me with your Holy Spirit and make me whole. Help me to trust you; help me to love you; help me to live for you. Thank you Lord Jesus, Amen
Whenever we do wrong after this, we need to say we’re sorry and ask for his forgiveness. We need to ask Jesus to help us to change.
Talk to him every day, and listen to him, as he wants to talk to you!
Get a bible: I suggest you begin by reading the Gospels and the Psalms. This will help you to get to know God.
Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you.
Jesus doesn’t promise to make life perfect, in fact there may be more hardship and suffering in following him, but he does promise to give us a purpose and a future: a reason to live!
