ETERNITY BY BISHOP DAG HEWARD-MILLS
21st April 2019
READ: Luke 16:19-31
“And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal”Matthew 25:46
There are only two destinations beyond the grave—HEAVEN and HELL. The spirits of those who were righteous in Christ go to be with the Father in Heaven, while the spirits of those who rejected Jesus will be cast down to Hell (Matthew 25:46).
Hell is not a reform school. According to Mark 9:48, it is a place: “…where their worm dieth not, and the FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED.”
Here, our judge Himself warns us about Hell and its unimaginable horrors, and offers us a wonderful and better alternative—Heaven.
One reason why we can believe in the existence of Hell is that Jesus Himself preached more about Hell than many other subjects! For example, in Luke 16, Jesus recounts the story of the rich man and Lazarus in graphic detail. Notice that this is no parable. There existed a particular person, not a figment of His own imagination. These events actually occurred somewhere, and that place is real.
Dear reader, it’s time for you to prevent someone from going to Hell. God will not send any angels to evangelize the world whilst we are here. We’ve played enough Christian games. Today, I challenge you to become a roadblock to Hell.
Let us prayerfully say: “Father use me. Lord may my life, my words and my actions prevent others from going to Hell. If you can use anything Lord, please use me.” Amen.
