Whether you like it or not,
judgment is coming. Whether you believe it or not, judgment is coming. Whether you are ready or not, judgment is coming. Whether you are
a believer in Christ or an unbeliever, judgment is coming. Judgment
is a fact! Judgment Day is already scheduled on God’s calendar.
2 Peter 3:8 But,
beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with
the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
(KJV) God may seem to be slow to you.
But God’s time clock and our time clock are two completely
different things! God is not slow; He is simply not on our timetable.
Psalm 90:4 For
a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past,
and as a watch in the night. (KJV) Jesus
is coming back! Count on it! He is waiting so that more sinners
will repent and turn to Him. You should be ready to meet Christ
at any time, perhaps even today. But you must plan your life as
though He may not return for many years. We must reach out to people
with the Gospel so that more can find their way to Jesus and Heaven.
We must obey our Lord’s command to us.
Matthew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded
you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.
Amen. (KJV) Jesus' Words.
Many people refuse to believe that God will
sentence people to eternal
fire for rejecting Him. But this
is clearly taught in Scripture. Sinners who refuse to seek forgiveness
from God will face eternal separation from Him. Jude gives a warning
to all who rebel against, ignore, or reject God.
Jude 1:7 Even
as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner,
giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh,
are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal
Unsaved sinners shall be
punished with everlasting
destruction . . . and be forever banished from the Presence
of God. Most people do NOT want to hear the fire and brimstone message,
but I teach the Bible and I must teach it all, not just what people
want to hear. The vast majority of preachers today will NOT preach
the Truth of Hell.
If they did, people would not come back.
2 Tim. 4:1-4 I
charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who
shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove,
rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the
time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after
their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching
ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and
shall be turned unto fables. (KJV) God,
through Paul was speaking Timothy, but He is speaking to all who
bring His Word to the public, and that includes me. We are to preach
the whole Gospel. It is very important for believers to spread the
Gospel, the TRUE Gospel! Most people today do not know Christ. He
is coming soon, and He wants His disciples to be ready for Him.
It may be inconvenient or unpopular to take a stand for Christ or
to tell others about His love, and His judgment, but preaching the
Word of God is the most important responsibility believers have
been given. We are to preach the Word in season and out of season,
meaning in any situation. We are to correct, rebuke and encourage,
with the total Word of God. It is difficult to be told we have to
change. But even if the truth hurts, we must obey God.
There are many people who refuse to admit
there is a Hell. But the Bible speaks so often on Hell, and our
dear Lord Jesus spoke more on Hell than He did any other subject.
WHY??? Because He does NOT want you to go there.
ALL of your works, words
and thoughts are recorded in Heaven. Violence and murder are horrible
sins that you may not committed, but . . . gossip is a sin, for
you harm a person’s character. Hate is a sin, equal to murder
in God’s eyes (1 John 3:15). Unbelievers
shall be held accountable for every careless word, thought and evil
deed they do. Believers shall be held accountable for what they
did with their lives AFTER they became born again (John 1:12-13;
I am bold in bringing God’s
Word about Judgment, something most people do not want to hear,
but it brings the Truth as do all the other literature that we have
published. I teach the Bible and must teach it all, good and bad!
AND REJECTERS OF CHRIST
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall
enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of
my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day,
Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name
have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart
from me, ye that work iniquity. (KJV) Jesus'
Words. Jesus readily exposed people
who sounded religious but had no personal relationship with Him
(hypocrites). On “that day” (the day of judgment),
only our relationship with Christ, our acceptance of Him as Saviour
and our obedience to Him, will count. Many people think that if
they are “good” and say ‘religious’ things,
they will be rewarded with eternal life. NOT SO! Faith in Christ
and a close relationship with Him is what will count on Judgment
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father
with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to
his works. (KJV) Jesus'
Words. Christ Jesus has been
given the authority to judge all the Earth. There is a future, final
judgment coming, when Christ shall return and everyone who has ever
lived will have their life reviewed and evaluated. Both Christians
and unbelievers will face a judgment, although not at the same time.
A Christian’s eternal destiny is secure (Jn.3:15-18; Rom.6:23),
but Jesus will consider how we handled our gifts, opportunities,
and responsibilities in order to determine their heavenly rewards.
All that we do for the cause of Christ will stand, all else will
be burned up (1 Cor. 3:11-15). At the time of the person’s
judgment, God will deliver the righteous and condemn the wicked.
But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto
thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous
judgment of God; (KJV) Although God does
not usually punish us immediately for sin, His eventual judgment
is certain. We don’t know exactly when it will happen, but
we know that NO ONE will escape that final encounter with the Creator.
Unbelievers keep piling up sins, that shall bring God's wrath against
He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath
one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall
judge him in the last day. (KJV) Jesus'
Words. The purpose of Jesus’
first Coming to earth was not to judge people, but to show them
the way to find salvation and eternal life. BUT, when He comes again,
one of His main jobs will be to judge people for how they lived
on Earth. IF we do not accept and obey Christ’s Words about
eternal life, His Words shall condemn us. On Judgment Day, All those
who accepted Jesus and lived His way will be raised to eternal life
(1 Cor. 15:51-57; 1 Thes. 4:15-18; Rev. 21:1-8), but all those who
rejected Jesus and rejected His Words, living instead any way they
pleased, shall face eternal punishment (Rev. 20:11-15). God
has given us our life here on Earth to decide where you shall spend
eternity. It is the biggest and most important decision you will
ever make! Choose wisely! The consequences of your decision shall
1 John 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we
may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are
we in this world. (KJV) “The
day of wrath” refers to when we die or to the time when
God settles accounts with all people. On Judgment Day, each of us
will stand alone in front of the Awesome Judge. Unbelievers will be before the Great White Throne Judgment, and be accountable for all their thoughts, words, actions and deeds, and be sentenced to Hell. At that
time, NO amount of riches will buy reconciliation with God. Believers will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ and be judged on whether we receive rewards or lose rewards we could have had. Only
our love for God and obedience to Him can give us "boldness in the day of judgment."
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able
to stand? (KJV) At the breaking of the
6th seal in the Book of revelation, there will be an earthquake
such as no one has ever seen. Every
mountain and every island will be moved out of place (Rev.6:12-17).
ALL unsaved human beings, great and small, rich or poor, will be
terrified, begging the mountains to fall on them so that they will
not have to face the judgment of the Lamb. This
is not intended to frighten believers. Because everyone who trusts
and accepts Christ, the Lamb is their gentle Saviour. But all those
rulers, generals or kings, and everyone who previously
had shown no fear of God and arrogantly flaunted their unbelief
will see quite clearly that they were wrong, and in that day they
will have to face God’s wrath. No one who has rejected
Christ can survive the day of God’s wrath, but those who belong
to Christ will receive a reward rather than punishment. If you belong
to Christ, you need not fear these final days.
Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment:
but the righteous into life eternal. (KJV) Jesus'
Words. In chapter 25 of Matthew,
Jesus tells us the parables of the Ten Virgins and the Talents.
These parables tell us that Christ wants no servants to be idle.
We have received our all from Him, and we have nothing we can call
our own except our sin. When we receive salvation from Christ, it
is necessary that we trust and obey Him, serving Him willingly in
love and loyalty. We are NOT saved by any works that we do, but
AFTER we are saved, the works that we do simply prove our love for
Him and our faith. Judgment Day will come one day, and we all will
be held accountable for what good we have done for Christ. There
are only two groups of people . . . children of the devil (disobedience)
and children of God (1 John 3:10; Eph.2:2). And there are only two
destinations . . . Heaven and Hell (Rom.6:23; Mat. 25:46; John 3:18,36).
But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at
nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat
of Christ.  For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every
knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. (KJV)
True believers will stand before the Judgment
Seat of Christ to determine their rewards or loss of rewards. Their
destination has already been determined . . . Heaven! But
one day everyone will bow to Christ, and every tongue shall confess
to God . . . ALL unbelievers shall reverence Christ as He should
2 Thes. 1:7-10 And
to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall
be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,  In flaming fire
taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the
gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:  Who shall be punished with
everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from
the glory of his power;  When he shall come to be glorified
in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because
our testimony among you was believed) in that day. (KJV) The
“everlasting destruction” that Paul describes
is the lake of fire (Hell) in Rev. 20:14 . . . the place
of eternal separation from God. Those people who are separated from
God in eternity will no longer have any hope whatsoever for salvation
(eternal life in Heaven).
JUDGE IS CHRIST JESUS.
ALL judgment is committed to Him.
Matthew 28:18 And
Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given
unto me in heaven and in earth. (KJV) Jesus'
Words. God gave Jesus authority over
Heaven and Earth. On that authority, Jesus told his disciples to
make more disciples as they preached, baptized, and taught. But,
with this same authority, Jesus shall judge the world.
John 5:22 For
the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto
the Son: (KJV) Jesus'
Words. Judgment will
be done by the Father through the Son as His voluntary Agent, Jesus,
the Christ, Jesus, the Messiah!
John 5:27 And
hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is
the Son of man. (KJV) Jesus'
Words. The Father
appointing the Son of man as a Judge in our own nature is an absolute
and beautiful method of divine wisdom in redemption. Since Jesus
was 100% Man, He knows mankind completely, so who better to be our
Judge? Even if I could object, I certainly would not! I think it’s
Acts 17:31 Because
he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in
righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath
given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the
dead. (KJV) God the Father has
fixed a day in which He will judge the whole world with truth and
justice by means of a Man He has chosen, who is none other than
Jesus, whom He has raised from the dead.
Romans 2:16 In
the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ
according to my gospel. (KJV) On
Judgment Day, God through Jesus Christ will judge the secret thoughts
of all people. Nothing will be able to be hidden from the Great
Romans 14:12 So
then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
(KJV) Every person who has ever lived will have to give an account
to God for their actions, words and thoughts.
2 Cor. 5:10 For
we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every
one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he
hath done, whether it be good or bad. (KJV) Paul
is speaking to believers here. We ALL must stand before Christ,
to be judged by Him. He will either reward us, or take away rewards
we could have had, according to our hearts and lives.
2 Tim. 4:1
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who
shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
(KJV) We should take Judgment Day
very seriously . . . God does! The Lord Jesus Christ will one day
judge those living and resurrect the dead for judgment when He appears
to set up His Kingdom.
2 Tim. 4:8 Henceforth
there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord,
the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only,
but unto all them also that love his appearing. (KJV) There
shall be a crown of righteousness waiting for ALL true believers
that the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give us on that Day . .
. to everyone who look forward with love for Him to appear.
persons to be judged are:
(1) The whole race of Adam
without a single exception.
Matthew 25:31-33 When the Son of man shall
come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall
he sit upon the throne of his glory:  And before him shall be
gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another,
as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:  And he shall
set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. (KJV) Jesus' Words. Christ
will separate His obedient followers from hypocrites and unbelievers.
The evidence of our belief is how we act. To treat all persons we
encounter as if they are Jesus is not easy! How we treat others
demonstrates what we really think of Jesus. Sobering thought, isn’t
1 Cor. 15:51-52
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we
shall all be changed,  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall
be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (KJV) “We
will not all sleep” means that Christians alive at that day
will not have to die but will be changed into their new bodies immediately.
Rev. 20:11-15 And
I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face
the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place
for them.  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before
God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which
is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things
which were written in the books, according to their works. 
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell
delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every
man according to their works.  And death and hell were cast
into the lake of fire. This is the second death.  And whosoever
was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake
of fire. (KJV) What a day this
will be! The Judge, the Lord Jesus Christ, will terrorize unbelievers
with His awesome majesty. The
persons to be judged are the dead, small and great; young and old,
low and high, poor and rich. ALL unbelievers! Not only those alive
at this time, but all the dead as well. There is a book of remembrance
both for good and bad, which will reveal even the sinner’s
conscience, though formerly secret, now shall be opened. Every person
will recall all past actions, even though they had long forgotten
many of them. Another book shall be opened, the book of life, and
if their name is not written within this book, Hell is their destination.
Hell is the second death; it is eternal separation of sinners from
God. By their works people shall be judged (also see: 2 Cor.11:15;
The fallen angels. 2 Peter 2:4
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them
down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be
reserved unto judgment; (KJV) God
did not spare angels, or people who lived before the flood, or the
citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah, and He will not spare them in the
end times either! Some people believe that God will save all people
because He is so loving. God is love, they cry! YES! Absolutey .
. . God is love. But God is also a God of wrath! God hates sin!
God hates evil! It is absurd for anyone to think that He will cancel
the last judgment. He will absolutely judge sin and wickedness and
unbelief! It’s as good as done! God judges sin and that unrepentant
sinners cannot escape.
Jude 1:6 And
the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own
habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness
unto the judgment of the great day. (KJV) God
sahll judge ALL evil. Some of the angels . . . even though they
were once pure, holy, and living in God’s Presence, gave in
to pride and joined Satan to rebel against God. If the angels were
punished, don’t you think all sin by all people will be punished
REPRESENT THE FINAL JUDGMENT AS:
Eccles. 11:9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and
let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the
ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou,
that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.
(KJV) Many of your choices in this
life on Earth will be irreversible. They will be with you eternity.
Judgment Day is a sure thing!
2 Cor. 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment
seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his
body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
(KJV) All believers must appear before
the The Judgment
Seat of Christ, to be judged by Him. We
will each get what we deserve, according to everything we have done,
after we were saved, good or bad, in our bodily life.
Romans 5:1-2 Therefore
being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord
Jesus Christ:  By whom also we have access by faith into this
grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
(KJV) We all shall stand before
the Great Judge one day. Nothing can stop that! Our faith in Christ
makes us righteous, not anything that we do. The Father passes on
Jesus’ righteousness to believers when we accept Him (1 Cor.
1:30). We can stand before the Judgment Seat with boldness.
1 Cor. 15:50-53 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh
and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption
inherit incorruption.  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall
not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,  In a moment, in
the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall
sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall
be changed.  For this corruptible must put on incorruption,
and this mortal must put on immortality. (KJV) We
all face limitations. Those who have physical, mental, or emotional
disabilities are especially aware of this. Some may be blind, but
with faith, they can “see” Jesus! Some may be deaf,
but with faith they can “hear” God’s Good News.
Some may be lame, but with faith, they can they can walk in God’s
abundant love. Faith lets people know that their disabilities are
only temporary. The Bible tells us that we all will be given new
bodies when Christ returns and that these bodies will be without
disabilities, never to die or become sick. Thank You Jesus! This
can give us hope in our present day suffering.
Hebrews 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying
on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
(KJV) Certain basic teachings are
necessary for all believers to understand. These include: faith
is of utmost importance; it is stupidity to try to be saved by good
deeds; the meaning of baptism; using spiritual gifts; the facts
of resurrection and eternal life. Mature Christians should be teaching
baby Christians the basics, then acting on what they know. Mature
Christians will continue to learn from God’s Word until death
takes them Home. We are never too old to serve the Lord. Let us
think about our eternal interests, and run to the Refuge set before
us, let us be careful how we spend our precious time, let us depend
on the merits of our Redeemer, not on 'self' and cling to the Holy
Word of God, that we may be found by Him in a willing service to
are living in the last days, and are getting closer to the end with
each passing day. People are extremely vulnerable to doctrinal falsehoods. We
are tempted to give in to sin. There is so much false teaching around
us, but let us stand firm in our faith in God. Only He can keep
us from falling, and only He guarantees that if we remain faithful,
He will bring us into His Presence and give us everlasting joy.
Daniel 7:9-10 I beheld till the thrones were
cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white
as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne
was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.  A
fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands
ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before
him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. (KJV)
I cannot begin to imagine Daniel’s
thoughts when he was privileged to look down throught the centuries
and “see” the Judgment Day. Daniel saw God judging millions
of people as they stood before Him. We all must stand before the
Almighty Judge and give an account of our lives one day. This is
pretty serious stuff! Please do not think this is some sort of ‘fairy
What Daniel saw all those
years ago, shall absolutely happen! If your life were judged by
God today, what would He say? How would He judge you? Would you
receive a reward or would He take away rewards that you could have
had? How would you measure up? Or perhaps you are not one of God’s
people. If that is the case, I strongly suggest that you turn to
Christ this very moment! For IF you do not belong to God, you shall
receive NO rewards, and your permanent, eternal destination is the furnace of fire, where there shall be wailing and gnashing
of teeth which is Hell (see below). We should live each day, fully
realizing that Jesus could come at any time, and that we must appear
before Him to give account for how we used our lives.
As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the
fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.  The Son of man
shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom
all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;  And shall
cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing
of teeth.  Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in
the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. (KJV) Jesus' Words. At
the end of this world, God’s trusted angels shall separate
all the evil from the good. There are true believers in churches
today, and there are also many hypocrites. But we should beware
in our making judgments because only Christ is qualified to make
the final separation. Only He knows a person’s heart. We do
not. What is important is to judge our own response to God rather
than to judge anothers’ response.
So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall
come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,  And shall
cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing
of teeth. (KJV) Jesus'
Words. At the end of the age, God’s
angels will go out and separate wicked people from the righteous
ones, and will cast them into the fiery furnace, where they will
wail and gnash their teeth from the torment.
NO ESCAPE FROM JUDGMENT
Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out
my hand, and no man regarded;  But ye have set at nought all
my counsel, and would none of my reproof:  I also will laugh
at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;  When your
fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind;
when distress and anguish cometh upon you.  Then shall they
call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but
they shall not find me:  For that they hated knowledge, and
did not choose the fear of the Lord:  They would none of my
counsel: they despised all my reproof.  Therefore shall they
eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own
devices. (KJV) God is more than
willing to make known His thoughts and His will to us. BUT, to receive
His advice we must be willing to listen to Him and we must humble
ourselves before Him. Pride puts a halt to most people’s relationship
with Christ. Pride thinks more highly of our own wisdom and desires
than of God’s. To think you know better than God or feel you
have no need of God’s love, wisdom and direction, you have
disastrous an destructive
pride that shall lead you down that big, broad road right into Hell!
Proverbs 29:1 He, that being often reproved
hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without
remedy. (KJV) To keep making
the same mistake over and over is stupidity. And IF the mistake
is refusing God’s invitations or rejecting His commands, the
end result will be disasterous. God will try many times to reach
a person through the urging of the Holy Spirit, but He will finally
quit trying and turn away. Make sure you are not stubborn and stiff-necked.
Make sure that you never reach that point of no return!
Hebrews 2:3 How
shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the
first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us
by them that heard him; (KJV) If
you pay no attention at all to the tremendous Gift (salvation by
faith in Christ), that God offers, if you reject and neglect God’s
offer of love to you, you shall NOT escape condemnation, but be
cast into the fiery furnace (Hell).
Daniel 12:2 And
many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some
to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
(KJV) Daniel was privileged to “see”
way down through the years. He saw two resurrections, one for the
righteous and one for the wicked, with the eternal results of each
completely opposite. Daniel’s reference to a bodily resurrection
of both the saved and the lost was a sharp contrast from common
Matthew 3:12 Whose
fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather
his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable
fire. (KJV) Jesus' Words.
A fan is a winnowing fork used to toss wheat
in the air to separate the good wheat from worthless chaff, that
is burned. Unrepentant people (unbelievers, rejecters of Christ)
will be judged and cast into the eternal fires of Hell, just like
the worthless chaff was burned. Those who repent and believe will
be saved, like the good wheat.
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart
from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil
and his angels: (KJV) Jesus'
Words. God will separate
His obedient followers from pretenders and unbelievers. The proof
of our belief is how we act. To treat all persons as if they are
Jesus is not easy. What we do for others shows what we really think
about Jesus. To disobey Christ is to be a follower of the devil.
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment:
but the righteous into life eternal. (KJV) Jesus'
Words. Eternal punishment shall take
place in Hell (the lake of fire, or second death). It is the place
of punishment after death for all those who refuse to repent and
insist on rejecting Jesus.
John 5:29 And
shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection
of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of
damnation. (KJV) Jesus'
Words. The verses
I have brought forth are all saying the same thing . . . there are
two destinations in eternity . . . Heaven and Hell. Where we go
is our choice! Those who rebel against Christ will be resurrected
too, but they shall feel God’s wrath and hear His judgment
against them and be sentenced to eternity apart from Him. Some people
want to live well on Earth; they completely ignore God, and then
think death is final rest. “When
you’re gone, you’re gone” is what they think.
. . and it is wrong! The Bible does NOT tell us that in any
place. Jesus tells unbelievers that death is NOT the end of it all.
There shall be a judgment to face, and a sentence to hear.
I teach the Bible, not because
it was MY idea, but because God told me to do it. I believe every
word in its Holy Pages. I believe that IF it is of God it will stand,
and IF it is not of God, it shall fall. I have been serving my precious
Saviour and Lord for well over 35 years now, and I shall continue
to do so as long as He gives me strength and continues to equip
me to do so. I truly do fear for the souls of the lost ones and
because I know what is their destiny. I want to keep people from
the Hell that I know exists.
