It's interesting how threads like these come up from time to time, almost like clockwork. Don't have much time to post much now but let me tell
you, hell is VERY real and you don't have the mental kilowatts to comprehend it. I had a near death experience because of a car accident last April
and I'm just getting to the point where I can start telling my experience in detail. Let me just say for now that there are NO words to describe the
fear that I felt during my experience, I tremble now just thinking about it. You have simply not experienced fear until you believe you are dead and
separated from God for eternity. God is eternal, that is why judgement is eternal. We can't get our heads our "eternity" so why take any chances?
According to the Bible there are different levels of punishment for the condemned after death.. I'll try and outline this when I get some more time.
A couple of scriptures to think about:
"Revenge is MINE sayeth the Lord"
Mt 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear HIM which is able to destroy both soul and body in
Lu 12:5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which AFTER he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
Re 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the SECOND DEATH.
Don't fool yourselves people.. I really don't care about silly symantics, and foolhardy haggling over translation arguments. Anyone who has read
the Bible from front to back can NOT deny the CONTEXT of hell according to the Bible. Debate translations, metaphors and parables to your hearts
content but do so at your own peril. To me even the most spiritually ignorant and undiscerning person can see the context I speak of. One leg up I
have on most people I talk to this about is the fact that I had a PERSONAL experience of hell, albeit just scratching the surface. I thank Jesus
everyday for sparing my life last April.
Trust me, dying time is TRUTH time and after you leave this world these words may haunt you for eternity:
From the mouth of the Almighty Himself:
Pr 1:22 How long, ye SIMPLE ONES, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? How long, you simple
ones, will foolish things be dear to you? and pride a delight to the haters of authority? how long will the foolish go on hating knowledge?
Pr 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Be turned again by my sharp words:
see, I will send the flow of my spirit on you, and make my words clear to you.
Pr 1:24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; Because your ears were shut to my voice; no one gave
attention to my out-stretched hand;
Pr 1:25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
Pr 1:26 I also will LAUGH AT YOUR CALAMITY; I will MOCK when your fear COMETH;
Lu 12:20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy SOUL shall be REQUIRED of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
This guy had many worldly goods but died then his soul was required of him..Hmm, soul required for WHAT? Judgement!....
Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
If you just die and are no longer aware what does this mean?
Only a fool sayeth in his heart there is no God. (Psalms)
To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord Himself:
2co 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
This can either be a good thing or a BAD.. VERY BAD thing:
Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Where the rubber really meets the road is whether or not you believe in the Bible. If you do you have to believe in all of it. Jesus said I am the
word made flesh..not PART of the word made flesh. you deny the Bible, you deny Jesus. The Holy Spirit had complete control over every "process"
and every word put into the Bible.. how He did it is a mystery to me but God is God isn't He? how could He be our God if He didn't have this type of
Jesus died on the cross to save you from eternal (totally aware) condemnation. If you think Jesus died on the cross just to save you from "dying"
the first death you are in for a seriously rude awakening beyond your wildest nightmare.
it's all in there folks. Not trying to scare anyone. Believe or not believe.
