Hell is Hot!

"For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23

Life is Short

Death is sure - Your day is coming
Judgment is coming
Eternity is too long - It's forever and forever
Hell is Hot
Forgiveness is available for everyone
Heaven is for you.
- Before I go any further I want to thank Aleeta Connelley and the Riverwalk Fellowship outreach team for this.

I have read several books lately that have basically all said the same thing which is....

You can go to heaven unless you are the worst most murderous, hideous evil monster that ever lived and these are the only reasons why one won't make it into heaven.

Boy - Have I got news for you!

God will not allow any sin in heaven.

All of us have some sort of sin in our lives.

Could be a little lie, could be that you thought you could do something and get away with it, could be even as small as not minding your parents, or those in authority.

There are lots of things that we mess up in daily, therefore we need to repent and ask God for His forgiveness.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23

It is grace, that unmerited favor, by which we are saved.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith, and not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man boast." Ephesians 2:8-9

Ya know there is not any coming back and getting a second chance, our chance is right now!

Here is a good reference to this. Luke 16:19-31

"There once was a rich man, expensively dressed in the latest fashions, wasting his days in conspicuous consumption. A poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, has been dumped at his doorstep.{This is not the same Lazarus that was raised from the dead} All he lived for was to get a meal from scraps off the rich man's table. His best friends were the dogs who came and licked the sores. Then he died, this poor man, and was taken up by the angels to the lap of Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried. In hell and torment, he looked up and saw Abraham in the distance and Lazarus in his lap. He called out, Father Abraham, mercy! Have mercy! Send Lazarus to dip his finger in water to cool my tongue. {Now that's hot!} I'm in agony in this fire. But Abraham said, Child remember that in your lifetime you got the good things and Lazarus the bad things. It's not like that here. Here he's consoled and you are tormented. Besides, in all these matters there is a huge chasm set between us so that no one can go from us to you even if he wanted to, nor can anyone cross over from you to us.{There is a line that cannot be crossed from either way} The rich man said, Then let me ask you, Father; Send him to the house of my father where I have five brothers, so he can tell them the score and warn them so they won't end up here in this place of torment. Abraham answered, They have Moses and the Prophets to tell them the score, let them listen to them. I know, Father Abraham, he said, but they are not listening. If someone came back to them from the dead, they would change their ways. Abraham replied, If they won't listen to Moses and the Prophets, they're not going to be convinced by someone who rises from the dead." Message Version

We only have one shot at this thing!

Why send someone out of hell, when Jesus came and was buried, died and rose again, still people believe Him not.

The rich man was not punished for being rich, God wants us to be rich.

"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as your soul prospereth." III John 2

The rich man went to hell because he was selfish, greedy, did not want to listen to the prophets of his time.

The rich man was hard hearted even though he had more than enough to share, he did not.

You may not be rich, but you still can give out of what you have.

It is when we are faithful in the small, God will reward us with much, as He can trust us.

What is your attitude toward money and possessions?

Hell is a very hot place.

A place where you will be tormented day and night, no rest for the wicked.

A place even hotter than the hottest day, and there will be no relief in sight.

You don't have to go there if you don't want - You do need to change your ways and ask Jesus into your heart.

Some of us need to get a hold of God, get it in our heart, our spirit.

Remember, the rich man had asked Abraham if he would send Lazarus back to tell them - He said no!

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

Isn't it great to know that God will give us a second chance while here on earth.

"For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:17

There is that little voice inside of you called your conscience and it generally tells you if you are doing something wrong.

Won't you listen to it today, and get you life back on the right path.

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." I John 1:9

When we confess we are saying that we are sorry and we are asking for His forgiveness and want to do right.

If your heart is pounding, as you are reading this then God is talking to You!

You can ask Him to come into your heart right now and to help you with all that is wrong in your life.

Your must have a right heart with God.

Come let Him walk with you on your daily journey.

No one plans on going to hell, it just happens, we are blindsided by things and cares of this world that we forget to even give our maker a second thought.

How many times do you wake up and see the sunrise, the beauty that surrounds us everywhere?

What about each breath that we breathe?

All we have to to is just start thanking Him for His precious blood, that flowed down at Calvary.

Thank Him for His blood that washed our sins away and saves us from eternal damnation.

Thank Him for the hope that we have in Him, as there is no hope in this world, or what it has to offer you.

Ask Him to forgive you all of your sins, those that you have done knowingly and unknowingly.

Thank Him for that eternal light. Thank Him for the forgiveness that comes with the washing of His blood.

Thank Him for that wonderful feeling, that cleanness that we feel.

Ask Him to walk with you daily and help you with each situation as it arises.

Ask Him to take full reign over your life today, right now!

No one said that the journey would be easy - hold on for the ride of your life!

This will be the best journey you will ever have!

God is good, and His mercies are new each day.

Don't get fooled by what the world has to offer.

There is only one way to heaven, but many ways to Hell.

"And this is the record, that God hath given us to eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." I John 5:11-13
