Isaiah 14:9, “Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.”

       This Scripture verse says that Hell from below is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming. Hell comes up to get you. Have you ever heard anyone mention, “raising Hell.” Hell literally comes up to get you. There are people in Hell right now, burning, who will be there for ever and ever and ever and ever. Will you be there too? Death is coming quickly my friend. Death will be upon you before you know it.

Many people accuse Bible-believers of being in some kind of false cult. They think the idea of Hell was fabricated to manipulate the masses of population. They doubt God, calling Him a liar. Voltaire, Charles Darwin, Robert Ingersoll Hitler, George Carlin, Vladimir Lenin, and the list goes on of atheists. I tell you my friend, there are NO atheists in Hell. Imagine the surprise Bob Ingersoll had when he woke up in Hell and realized it was true.

I'd hate to go to Hell, thinking all my life that I was going to Heaven. Every day on average 250,000 people drop into Hell. Hell is moved to meet every Christ-rejecter who dies in their sins. Think of the horror of descending down into the fiery furnace of molten sulfur, the stench of burning flesh, the intense heat, the smoke of their torments ascending up for ever and ever (Revelation 14:11). You will be surprised if you go to Hell. It will be beyond your worst fears. I'd hate to die and go to Hell. Your priest will be in Hell one day if he thinks his good works can save him (Matthew 7:21-23). Jesus will say to them, “I NEVER KNEW YOU!” ...

Matthew 7:21-23, “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.”

I know Jesus and He knows me. I have been born-again of the Spirit of Christ (Romans 8:9). My sins have been washed away forever by the precious blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ (1st Peter 1:18-19; Revelation 1:5). Thousands of teenagers went to Hell last nights. They were only 16, 17, 18., or 19. They were surprised at how fast they went to Hell. The Bible warns...

Proverb 29:1, “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.”

God is not playing games with anyone. Salvation is a serious matter to God, so serious that if you DIE IN YOUR SINS that He won't remember even one good thing done in your life.

How much longer do you want to dabble in sin before you come to Jesus Christ to be saved? Jesus said in John 3:20 that love for sin is the only thing that keeps men from coming to Christ to be saved. Hell is filled with wicked men and women of all ages and generations. Someone asked me if a person has to give up a homosexual lifestyle to be saved.

They're asking the wrong question. The right question should be, why haven't the homosexuals come to Jesus Christ yet? It's because they love sin and refuse to come to Jesus to be cleansed and saved.

Luke 16:23-24, “And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.”

Now that is not to say that there aren't some Christians who have chosen the homosexual lifestyle; but if that is you, God is dealing with your heart and convicting you day and night about your sins. Hebrews 12:6-8 teaches that you are NOT a child of God if you are not being chastised by God. The Holy Spirit dwells in every true believer (Romans 8:9) and convicts us about any sins in our life.

The unsaved dread and fear death more than anything. As a born-again believer I would love death. I'm ready to go man. Take me home Lord, any time you're ready. To live is Christ, to die is gain (Philippians 1:21). That was the Apostle Paul's attitude, and mine too.

Your popularity here on earth won't help you in Hell. Most of the Hollywood moviestars of decades ago are dead and burning in Hell now, having DIED IN THEIR SINS.

The Bible, God's holy Word, teaches that there is a literal place called Hell, which burns with fire and brimstone (sulfur). Most theologians agree that Hell is located somewhere in the heart of the earth, evidenced by numerous Biblical references; such as:

Psalms:55:15 — “...and let them go down quick into hell...”

Ezekiel 31:17 — “They also went down into hell...”

Amos 9:2 — “Though they dig into hell...”

So many people today have been misled by false prophets to believe that a God of love would never send anyone to a place of eternal punishment and torment. Yet we see suffering all around the world, horrible suffering, and no relief for millions of people. Sin is the culprit. Jesus plainly stated that, “...the Scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:35). If you believe in God, then you should definitely believe in the Bible, His Word, and take heed to the teachings therein. It is tragic that so many people who profess to believe in God and the Bible, outright reject the plain Scriptural teachings of judgment, damnation and eternal punishment . . . “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Are you really willing to take a chance that God didn't mean what He said?

Here is an excellent quote from the mighty man of God, Dr. Lee Roberson, concerning eternal punishment . . .

“Somebody says, 'The thought of Hell is so horrible.' Well, my friend, so is cancer, so is tuberculosis, so is the grave. Someone said, 'I believe sin ought to be punished, but not for eternity.' That's your view, not God's.

Again another says, 'I don't believe in the wrath of God.' Then you don't believe your Bible. The Bible says the wrath of God abideth on the one who doesn't believe in Jesus Christ. He is lost forever.

Now, these things come to us out of the Word of God. The teaching of eternal punishment should give us a hatred for sin. We ought to hate sin. The reason we have changed so much in this day in all of our churches is that we are not hearing much on this subject. Therefore, we endorse sin. We engage in sin. We camouflage the sin in our lives and allow things to go by, instead of hating sin as God wants us to hate sin . . .

The teaching of eternal punishment should give us a passion for the souls of men.”

You Need HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. I beg you, don't wait another minute. Cry out to God now whoever you may be. Acknowledge your guilt of sin. Own up to God that you are a horrible sinner, guilty, and without excuse. Turn to the Lord by faith and trust upon Him in your heart to forgive your sins, place all your confidence in Christ because of His work of redemption, and allow the blood of Jesus to cleanse away your sins, “. . . and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” Amen!

“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man...” —Colossians 1:27-28
