A TRAVEL LOG OF HELL

The following is mostly for those who are lost. However I have also included a lot for Christians, so I hope you will at least peruse it.

A TRAVEL LOG OF HELL

A common saying is:
“WELL I’LL BE GO TO HELL”

YES, you most likely will end up there. It’s a one way trip so before you go you really should check the place out. After all
YOU WILL BE THERE FOR FOREVER.

IN HELL
There will be a variety of people from every walk of life: The very rich to the extremely poor, MOVIE STARS, PREACHERS – from every denomination, GREAT PHILOSOPHERS and not so great ones, HUMANITARIANS, PRESIDENTS, POPES AND PRIESTS, DADS, MOTHERS, SONS AND DAUGHTERS, GRANDMOTHERS AND GRAND DAUGHTERS, along with all those you agree should be there, LIKE Islamic terrorists.
AND PERHAPS YOU too.

Because Jesus said:in 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. Matthew 7:21
Mat 7:22 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?
Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

IN HELL there is no water
IN HELL there is no hope
IN HELL there is no way out.
IN HELL you will live in terror
IN HELL you will be in constant pain

Perhaps some of you are thinking those words, “I’LL BE DAMNED” are only idle words said with no real thought behind them.
Not so, according to Jesus.
Matthew 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Mat 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
Mat 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
Mat 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

But the sin that will get you a guaranteed ticket to Hell is the way you have ignored God’s Son Jesus Christ.

God loves His Son and He sent Him here to earth so you would not have to go to Hell. Those who believe that and have called upon Jesus to save them from Hell are adopted into the family of God. They have been bought with the blood of Jesus and that makes every one of them special. The world is not worthy of us, yet we love the world and try to get those we come in contact with to repent and believe the gospel so they too can be in God’s adopted family. That is one reason for this blog.

The reason so many refuse to even consider what a child of God has to say is because they are spiritually dead. Because of that they believe they are right. All their life they have lived in an environment that detests the idiocy of true Bible believers. That is true even of those who have grown-up in a “Christian Church”.
The result of not ever hearing Biblical truth is that they have lost any and all empathy for true Christians and they delight in mocking them.
They know that born again Christ loving Christians are quite harmless being armed only with the gospel. When approached by a caring Christian they get all hysterical and scream, “don’t preach to me” when all you are doing is attempting to help them. They reject you because they reject The Lord King Jesus Christ. They know they are right and you are wrong, because for their whole life they have never, or hardly ever, been reproached with convicting Scripture.
Acts 24:25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

Here is a quote from THE SILENCE OF GOD, by Robert Anderson it is found on page 80.

Heavens best gifts, when perverted or abused, often turn to what is virulently bad; and religion, when divorced from spiritual life, appears to have some mysterious power to narrow and harden and deprave the human heart. …… Among common men, however evil or degraded, a prophet might pass unharmed; religious men alone would persecute and murder him! In every age, indeed, religion has been the most implacable enemy of God, the most ruthless persecutor of His people.”

I have copied that down on a 4X5 card.

Mankind is at enmity with God because they are sinners who have rejected truth.

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” Romans 5:12

When Adam sinned he passed his corrupt DNA on to all that followed him; that includes you and your grandma, as well as philanthropist Bill Gates, and the Pope. Everyone has something in common with a terrorist, we all have the Devils DNA.

We look good on the outside but inside EVERY SINGLE ONE of us has a satanic nature wanting to get out.

Mat 23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

AND

John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. John 8:45

You have always been on the devil’s side.

YET.
God SO loved YOU that he sent His only begotten Son so you could be born again into the family of God
We love him, because he first loved us. 1John 4:19

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

God sent His Son to die on the cross for you. If there had been any other way for YOU to get to heaven do you really think God would have sent Jesus here to die for us ungrateful wretches?

Let me ask you something, if you don’t care about what Jesus did For YOU, THEN why would God let you into HIS Kingdom?

How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him Heb 2:3

You have been living your whole life never caring much about the true Biblical God of the born again Christian. That attitude gets you a one way ticket to Hell.

Rom 5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Rom 5:7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Rom 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Rom 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
Rom 5:11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
Rom 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

You have heard it said that there are many highways that lead to heaven. A highway for Islam, a highway for Buddhists and for the atheist too. But the Bible actually teaches the opposite.

Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Jesus also said in John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Many are arrogant in believing that there are many ways to heaven; just do the best you can. Their reasoning is that if God puts them and other good people in Hell that would make God a tyrant.

I tell you that, that kind of reasoning is self-righteous stupidity.

Job 40:8 Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?

JESUS tells us what HELL is like in Luke 16:19-31.

There we read of two main characters very different from each other. One is a “certain beggar named Lazarus.” The other is a “rich man.”

Some call Luke 16:19-31 a parable. It is not. Parables do not have personal names as this passage has. Those who reject the doctrine of Hell as taught in Scripture must hose down the truth of the matter.
However IF it were a parable that would only mean that it is a story about an even more terrible place then words can describe. Either way, parable or actual truth, if you fail to receive the LORD King Jesus as your Saviour then you will go to Hell forever. That is a Bible promise.

Those who doubt the teaching of Jesus about Hell are insinuating that He is using scare tactics and fooling people, or He is lying, or He just doesn’t know what He is talking about.

HOW ABOUT YOU?
ARE YOU CALLING JESUS A LIAR?

If not then I am sure that you will want to know what Jesus tells us about that place of horrors.

Luke 16:19-21””

“There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;”

Notice in the above Scripture, Luke 16:21, that the
BEGGAR DIED
THE RICH MAN ALSO DIED

God has already let you live longer then some.
Yet in respects to ETERNITY IN HELL the time we spend here is short,
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” James 4:14

JUDGMENT DAY IS COMING, and
HELL’S OPEN MOUTH IS WAITING FOR YOU TO ENTER.

Isaiah 5:14 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.

Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

The rich man right now is in severe pain. He is WITHOUT GOD AND WITHOUT HOPE, and he has been that way for well over two thousand years.

Life had been good for him; pleasures had been his. There is pleasure in sin for a season – Hebrews 11:25 – but the season of delight has been over for a long time now. Today he is still in Hell – still in terror and still in torment.

CAVEAT ALERT: The rich man is in Hell because he didn’t repent NOT because he was rich
(Luke 16:30).
CAVEAT WARNING: We are all rich. The liberal government sees to that as they reward sin and encourage government dependence. The poor receives government handouts, while in 3rd world countries the poor are starving to death.

Matthew 19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
Mat 19:23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Mat 19:25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
Mat 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Luke 16:24 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.

This rich man is now a poor man.

HE BEGS FOR WATER
HE IS IN A RAGING FIRE
HE IS IN PAIN

HE IS ETERNALLY THIRSTY. He is lost forever, all alone, in a burning hell. He craves and begs for water but there is none to be found.

In denying the rich man’s plea for water, Abraham said, “son, remember, Luke 16:25. This just may be the saddest verse in the Bible for those who are lost as they will remember over and over again how they had refused to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
THE TRUTH IS; HELL IS so bad that Jesus said that it would be better for you to rip one of your eyes out, or cut your hand off if they are causing you to reject the free gift of eternal life that you can have through the blood of Jesus Christ.

Mat 5:29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Mat 5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

THE TRUTH IS, GOD sent His Son to die on a cruel wooden cross OF TORTURE so that you could have your sins forgiven and escape Hell. And you have never THANKED Him for that because you never cared enough to check it out.

Church, ugh, get me out of here, has been your attitude, unless, of course you go to one of those liberal Churches whose attitude is – Lord Jesus, ugh, get Him out of here.

The LORD Jesus left heaven and became a man so that He could become your substitute. You should have been the one to suffer. He gave His blood in payment for your sins.

God explains it in 2nd Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

1Pe 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

DO YOU CARE?
HAVE YOU EVER THANKED HIM?

Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Isa 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

Notice:
n the above verse 6 these have gone, “every one to his own way”, not necessarily into gross sins but also those living a fine dignified life. Whichever your way is, it isn’t GOD’S WAY, unless it is through the cross.

for instruction on the BIBLE WAY TO BE BORN AGAIN. If you do not want to go God’s way then it is a Bible promise that HELL will be your future.

Luk 16:27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:
Luk 16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

The rich man never asks to get out of Hell, not even for a few seconds, for he knows he deserves to be there and he also knows that the sentence is for eternity.
[Hell of course is not the final destination, the lake of fire is, Revelation 20:14 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”]

Instead the rich man asks that Abraham would send Lazarus to warn his brothers, before they also died and ended up in Hell. He would rather be separated from them, then for them to end up in this place of hell fire.

That is a good request he made of Abraham because God also wants his brothers to repent and trust His Son for salvation.

2Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

So does Abraham grant his request?

Luk 16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
Luk 16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
Luk 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

The answer is no he would not let Lazarus be resurrected as a warning to his five brothers because the rich man’s brothers have the Scriptures and Christ did rise from the dead.

(give me a little slack here.  I know Jesus has not been resurrected yet. He is the one telling the story. I am writing this to YOU.)

The rich man while he was living never asked for repentance because he thought he was okay, or perhaps he figured his money and prestige would get him into heaven.
I think he was a good guy because he didn’t kick Lazarus out but let him hang around even at dinner time.
Be careful about counting on your being a good person because the thing that counts with God is His Son. If you could get to heaven by being nice then why did Jesus Die on the cross. And if ignorance could cover your sins then why did Jesus command us Christians to preach the gospel around the globe.

Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Mat 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

People joke, “I’m going to Hell because all my friends will be there.” Yes, sadly, they probably will, but as you have read you will not be comforted by any of them.

Yes, you will spend ETERNITY IN HELL if that is what YOU want. But you won’t enjoy your friends anymore then the rich man enjoyed his. If you have a loved one in hell, then they, like the rich man, are begging that you will not follow them there, Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. Mar 9:44

WELL I’LL BE DAMNED – YES – I RECKON YOU WILL BE.

But you don’t have to be if you just believe the Bible enough to be saved.

Joh 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
