There are four things you need to know about hell. I have shared them below:
All human authority is lost
I reminisce with pain how I was bullied in high school. There were these tough seniors who would extort from us and cheat us. The sight of them scared the hell out of us. It wasn’t long however, and we graduated from high school. Fast forward today and we don’t fear them anymore. They have no authority over us, neither do we tremble at their presence any longer.
In the bible, the same scenario occurred. Jesus shared a parable about a man named Lazarus. Lazarus was a poor man who worked as a servant of a very affluent man. As is usual, the poor man died first (obviously because he probably didn’t have the best of medical attention). Some time later, the rich man also died.
Bible says In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom. “And he cried out and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame.’“But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that during your life you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things; but now he is being comforted here, and you are in agony. Luke 16:19-25
Like in high school therefore, the rich man had lost his authority over lazarous.
Hell is a place of torment
Luke 16:19-25 Makes it clear
In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment
So what type of torment are we talking about here? The torment of the eternal flame of God! I admire the beautiful European prisons, however it is not so in Africa. Ghanaian prisons are real places of torment, where deviants in society are tormented. If even human beigns can design such wicked places, how much more the God of heaven? So then, our wicked prisons are 5 star hotels compared to hell. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. People in hell are in agony, with weeping and gnashing of teeth and worms all over their bodies.
where “‘the worms that eat them do not die, and the fire is not quenched.’ Mark 9:48
Hell is ever enlarging
Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. Isaiah 5:14
This verse is serious! It sends shivers down my spine. Bible says hell is ever expanding. The only reason why I would expand my city is if it was increasing in population. Hell is increasing in population! Masses are entering it everyday, therefore it has enlarged itself. Now remember it is a place full of torment.
God will hold us accountable for all those in hell
This last point is really serious. It is hardly preached but it’s very serious. Most Christians are selfish, once they are saved, they care less about their unsaved brothers. God however says in his word that if we fail to warn the world about their impending danger, he will hold us accountable for it.
When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. Ezekiel 3:18
This is why we need to wash our hands off their blood. This is why we need to share the gospel. That is the global vision of LoveRealm: To project the love of Christ to the whole world using modern technology. We’re launching a campaign on Wednesday 10th July to raise funds which will enable us reach more people for Christ. I pray that you support as in prayers,
donations and promotion. This will ensure we are guiltless of the blood of those in hell. In the mean time you can join our event page by clicking here. God bless you!
