Billions of People are Going to Hell!
by David J. Stewart
ďEnter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.Ē óMatthew 7:13-14
There are an estimated 6 billion people in the world, thatís 6,000,000,000 people! The average life expectancy of a person is estimated to be around 70 years of age. With all the natural disasters, people smoking, the global aids epidemic, terrorism, drug overdoses, liquor related deaths, accidents, murders, war, etcóIím sure the average life expectancy is much lower. Visit a cemetery sometime and youíll be surprised how many people have died at a much younger age. Nevertheless, letís suppose that the average person lives to be 70 years old. 6,000,000,000 divided by 70 equals 85,714,285. This means that 85,000,000 people, on average, die every year. If we divide 85,000,000 by 365 days in a year, this means that an average of 232,876 people are dying every day in this world. Are you shocked? You'd never think from listening to the daily news that so many were dying. Iíve never heard anything like this on radio or TV, but it's a fact.
Every day in this world, 232,000 people fulfill their appointment with death. Could you imagine reading the front page of a newspaper and seeing something likeó ď232,000 PEOPLE DEAD!Ē? It happens every single day my friend! The reason youíll never see something like this is because it isnít glamorous. People like to hear about the one person who was shot to death, or the CEO that jumped out of his office window. The news media isnít interested in how many people are dying around the world. There are natural deaths occurring all over the earth every second, 24 hours a day, but we never hear of them. Deaths resulting from crime, war, disaster, sickness, injury, poison, disease and starvation are seldom heard of from other countries. We only hear of the tip of the ice-berg!
You canít disagree with the math! 6,000,000,000 people will all be dead in a little over 100 years!
How many people live to be 100? NOT MANY! By dividing 70 into 6,000,000,000, we found that 85,000,000 humans will die every year on average (more or less from year to year, but all will be dead in approximately 70 years). We also found that dividing 365 days into 85,000,000 means that an average of 232,000 humans die every day.
Now, letís say that one in ten people are genuine born-again Believers. We are clearly told in Matthew 7:14 that few people ever make it to heaven!, ďBecause strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND ITĒ (Matthew 7:14; Luke 13:23,24). How tragic! How horrible! Honestly, I would be very surprised if more than one out of every hundred people are truly saved and on their way to Heaven! Consider the billion people in China who know not the Lord Jesus Christ! Consider the countless hundreds of millions of Arabs (Islamic Muslims) who worship Allah and the prophet Mohammed. Consider the billion Catholics around the world that worship Mary and are trying to earn their way into Heaven through the keeping of the Seven-Sacraments and good works.
On and on, religion and more religion! Countless billions of people are trusting in their religion to save them instead of the Lord Jesus Christ. Surely, nine out of ten people in this wicked world are bound for a Godless, eternal Hell. I have no doubt whatsoever that 99% of the people in this world are going to Hell. Why? For one simple reason friend, they do not have the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. Their sins have not been forgiven. We estimated that 232,876 humans die every day on average. 232,876 minus 10% equals 209,588 people that perish into hellfire and destruction every single day that passes. So roughly, 200,000 HUMANS PLUNGE INTO HELL FIRE EACH AND EVERY DAY! We also see that 23,287 people (10%) make it to Heaven each day on average.
The number of people which die every day canít be denied! You can argue concerning the percentage of people going to Heaven verses Hell; however, Matthew 7:14 clearly teaches that only a "FEW" people will enter into Heaven. "MANY" are going to Hell. As I mentioned, I'd be surprised if more than 1% of the population are born-again believers. If you don't believe the Bible, then you had better hope to God that you're right. If you believe the Bible "just enough" to obey God, believing on the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, then you will be saved! We all must die and itís guaranteed that we're not going to escape death! Itís just a matter OF TIME! Prepare to meet thy God!
Salvation is not found in religion; but in a PersonóJesus Christ!
Let's think a bit further on this shall we...
If 232,876 people die every day (on average), then how many people die per second? Well, 232,876 divided by 24 hours = 9,703 people die every hour. 9,703 divided by 60 minutes = 161 people die every minute. 161 divided by 60 seconds = 2.6 (we'll say 2) people die every second. Can you imagine this? 2 people die in this world every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year! It's adds up to 85,000,000 people a year.
Let's assume that I'm right concerning the percentages. Let's just assume that only 1% of the population is truly born-again. This means that 2,328 people enter into Heaven each and every day. Sadly, 230,548 people plunge into hell-fire each and every day. What percentage of people do you believe are truly saved? If you say "ALL," then you are obviously NOT a believer. There are an estimated 1,000,000,000 Muslims in the world, all denying that Jesus is the Son of God, all denying that Christ ever died on the cross, all denying that Jesus is God. There are another estimated 1,000,000,000 Catholics in the world, all who believe that Mary can save them via praying the Rosary. Catholics teach that keeping their Seven Sacraments are essential to salvation. Catholics teach that the pope is as God upon the earth, and that the priest has power to forgive men's sins, and that good works can get a person to Heaven. Catholicism is of the Devil.
I witnessed to a Catholic man once who proclaimed that he didn't believe Jesus was God. How sad! Most of the world has been deceived by false religion. Yes friend, billions of people are going to Hell. Each and every HOUR, roughly 9,500 people die. Thousands of those people go straight to Hell.
If you've never accepted Christ as you personal Savior, do so now. Being saved is very easy. You don't need to give up anything! Salvation is receiving, not giving. It is the gift of God.
To be saved you must realize that your a guilty SINNER. You must realize that you deserve to go to Hell because of your sins. You must realize that Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood to pay for your sins. You must realize that Jesus was buried and rose again from the dead 3 days later. Jesus did this so we could obtain Heaven. Jesus paid a debt that He did not owe, because we owed a debt that we could not pay. Salvation is a free gift to us, but it cost God His only begotten Son.
Remember that all your good deeds, water baptism, church membership, holy communion (a term not even found in the Bible), penance, confession to a priest, confirmation and praying will surely send you to Hell if you trust upon them to save you. No friend, you put all your faith in Jesus Christ alone! Don't rely upon anyone or anything besides Jesus, Who is almighty God (Revelation 1:8).
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13). That means YOU!!! "Call" means "to appeal unto." Go to Jesus to be saved and you will be! If you come to the Savior, He has promised never to turn anyone away (John 6:37).
Salvation is not a prayer. Salvation is not a decision. Salvation is not turning over a new leaf. Salvation is not reformation, rehabilitation, nor education; but rather, regeneration. The Word of God is the Seed by which we are born anew by the Spirit of God (1st Peter 1:23; Romans 8:9). Salvation is a supernatural act of God in response to one's faith in Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is of the Lord.
Billions of people are still hellbound in their sins without Jesus Christ. This world grows more wicked each and every day. Please don't go to Hell in your sins. We are the SINNERS and Jesus is the SAVIOR. This is the simplicity of salvation that is in Christ. We are saved only by Jesus' righteousness; and not by any self-righteous of our own, and a good thing, because we have none to offer God (Isaiah 64:6; James 2:10).
