We all have heard the debate about Life after Death. Today I would like to speak a little bit about death after death. So we are forgoing the conclusion that there is life after death. We need to know that there is death after death also.
Just recently I came across this picture on Facebook. My first response to this picture was sadness. How sad that this beautiful young person is so deceived. I realized this young person has been deceived by schools, college professors, organizations & political parties, some churches and our society. Apparently she does believe in the after-life but isn’t aware of its realities. The Great Deceiver, which is the devil or Satan as Convinced our society that hell is not a bad place. Satan has made hell the new Disney World… A place where all your dreams can come true. What’s really sad about this is that our young people believe it.
Do not be Deceived! In 1 Peter 5:8 we find this, – “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” The Great Deceiver wants you!
So what do we know about Hell? So let’s take a look at a couple of Bible verses and find out a little about Hell.
1. Take a look at Revelations 21:8 “But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (NASB) We see in this verse who will be in Hell. The cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, immoral persons, sorcerers, idolaters and all liars. It’s a Big list. Also it tells us a little of what’s in Hell. There’s a lake that burns with fire and brimstone. The last part of the verse says this is a second death. Wow Death after Death.
2. Look at Revelations 20:10 – “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” In this verse we find that the devil, the beast, and the false prophet are cast into Hell. Notice the punishment – They shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
3. In 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9 says “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;” In this verse we find that ALL (everyone) that doesn’t have a relationship with God and haven’t obeyed the gospel shall be punished in Hell. They will be forever separated from the presence of God and His glory.
There are many more scriptures that describe Hell and the punishment therein. So going back to that picture of the young lady holding the sign saying “Going to Hell and proud”…. I really don’t think she knows what she is saying. In Galatians 6:7-8 we find a warning “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
Finally here’s my Question to you… Are you ready for “Life after Death” or “Death after Death”? This is a decision you may before you die, not afterwards. In Romans 12:2 tells us “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Have you been deceived by this world and the devil? In 2 Timothy 3:13 we find this warning “But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
My Friend, Hell is a real place! Where will you spend your eternal life? With God or with Satan? In Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” You have the choice. If you are not sure about where you will live forever… Why not take a moment right now and ask God to forgive and come into your heart? It’s time right now to settle that matter. All you have to do is to ask Jesus Christ into your heart. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Asking God to be in Your life is only a prayer away. It’s free, It’s easy! Just ask God to forgive you and to come into your life.
I pray that God will truly Help and Bless you. May God Bless!
