The Message-Heaven or Hell March, 2019

Satan’s power is dark and deadly. He is filled with rage, hate, envy and lies. His goal is to trick his way into our lives and create strongholds. He will deceive us and tempt us. Satan is the believer’s greatest enemy.

Sin originates in one’s own desire. Death is the punishment for sin without forgiveness.

James 1:13–15 Let no one say when he is tempted, I am tempted by God; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

Satan’s goal is to get you away from God. He doesn’t want you accepting Jesus and spending your eternity in heaven. Rather, he wants you with him in hell.

John 10:10 Jesus said: The thief comes to steal, to kill and to destroy, I am come that you may have life and have it more abundantly.

The thief is Satan. There are only two options. You will either live eternally with Jesus in heaven or with Satan in hell. Period.

Hell is a real place, an eternal home for those who rejected Jesus, His love, grace and mercy. During their lives on earth, they chose not to spend it with God. They lived for themselves never giving a second thought whether it was a life pleasing to God or not. They chose getting drunk, cussing, lying, cheating, stealing, betraying, murdering, raping, hurting others, mocking God, using His name in vain, persecuting believers, hating and living an immoral life instead. They wouldn’t humble themselves and ask for forgiveness.

When unbelievers die they will stand before Jesus and be judged for the life they lived on earth. Their deeds will be judged. You will face God. You will account for your actions.

Hebrews 9:27 And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment.

Hell is a place without mercy and full of torment and the fire never goes out.

Luke 16:24-26 The rich man shouted, Father Abraham, have some pity! Send Lazarus over here to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue. I am in anguish in these flames. But Abraham said to him, Son, remember that during your lifetime you had everything you wanted, and Lazarus had nothing. So now he is here being comforted, and you are in anguish. And besides, there is a great chasm separating us. No one can cross over to you from here, and no one can cross over to us from there.

The rich man had plenty of wealth and material things on earth but he wouldn’t help the needy. He didn’t help Lazarus the poor beggar who begged for his help on earth. Lazarus is in heaven with Jesus and Abraham and many others. The rich man is in hell without water and tormented in the flames. He’s begging for mercy but there is no mercy in hell, neither love nor grace. Jesus and the Holy Spirit are absent from those in hell, forevermore.

If you die without Christ in your heart, you will step into the total darkness of hell, the bottomless pit where your feet never will touch ground again. There will be no more rest for you in hell.

All the while Satan is laughing at you because you fell for his lies. This is exactly where he wanted you, away from God. He deceived you, tricked and tempted you and you didn’t resist. You refused to believe what Jesus told you about him. You lost your soul.

Everyone in hell belongs to Satan by choice. God didn’t send you to hell. Each person there had the opportunity to accept Jesus but rejected Him instead. Now Jesus is giving them exactly what they wanted. They heard the Gospel story and rejected the salvation that Jesus gave His life for so we could live eternally with Him in heaven.

Many are going to hell instead of heaven. Hell is never going out of business. The majority of people will choose it. You can never leave it.  You go there because you chose it and rejected Jesus and His offer of Salvation and redemption and chose Satan and his ways instead. You send yourself to hell by your own choice.

Matthew 7:13 You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way..

Once you die it’s too late, your eternity is established. There is no mercy, no grace after death. When you breathe your last breath on earth you will go to your eternity, whichever one you chose while living on earth. You will spend eternity in heaven or hell. There is no middle ground.

Jesus died on the cross so we could be forgiven of our sins and spend eternity with Him in heaven.

I’m sure Satan and his demons celebrated when Jesus died on the cross. When Jesus said it is finished, Satan and his demons misunderstood. What they didn’t count on was Jesus coming out of that tomb in 3 days, holding the keys to life, death, hell and the grave. Praise You Jesus.

Only Jesus can change and transform us back to His image that Satan took from us. Jesus will take the nature of Satan out of your heart and put God’s heart and nature back in. Little by little, glory to glory. This takes you to Heaven. Thank You Jesus.

Right now, there are millions of people who have rejected Jesus, and will spend eternity in hell, burning, weeping, and wailing, gnashing their teeth without any hope whatsoever.

Revelations 14:11 The smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever, and they have no rest day nor night.

You don’t know when you are going to die. Once you die it’s too late to choose Jesus. If you haven’t accepted Jesus, you still have a chance to accept Him as your Savior. He will forgive all your sins, wash you whiter than snow.

If you die without accepting Jesus as your Savior, then the Lord of Heavens Armies, has a day of reckoning for the wicked ones. He said, He will pay back His enemies. He said, He will raise His fist against them. They will be thrust from light into darkness, driven from the world. It will be said: this is the place of a wicked person, the place of ones who rejected God. 

What sorrow for those who drag their sins behind them, with ropes made of lies. They drag wickedness behind them, like a cart. They mock God. What sorrow for those who are heroes of drinking, and boast about all the alcohol they can hold. They take bribes, and let the wicked go free, and punish the innocent.

They have rejected the Lord of Heavens Armies, and despised the Word of the Holy One. That is why He has raised his fist, to crush them.

God has said it, I believe it.

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
