Satan would like nothing better than to convince you that Hell does not exist. That it is just imaginary and a scare tactic used by churches and
religious people to frighten you to go to church. With all the imaginations and jokes put aside, we find from God's Word that Hell is a real,
literal place. Call it a scare tactic if you want, but nevertheless, it still exists.
We are eternally indebted to the Lord for giving us so much detail concerning the eternal destiny of the lost. We are going to list a few of the
places that record God's judgment upon the lost.
(Psalm 9:17), "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God."
(Job 21:30), "That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath."
(Proverb 15:11), "Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?"
(Proverb 15:24), "The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath."
(Proverb 27:20), "Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied."
(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."
(Isaiah 14:9), "Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the
earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations."
(Isaiah 28:15), The reasoning of man--"Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the
overflowing scourge (i.e., judgment) shall pass through, it shall not come unto us..." Now God answers their reasoning (Isaiah 28:18), "And your
covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall
be trodden down by it."
(Isaiah 66:24), "And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die,
neither shall their fire be quenched; and they (lost) shall be an abhorring unto all flesh."
(Psalm 11:6), "Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup."
(Ezekiel 31:16), "I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him (Assyria) down to hell with them (lost) that descend into the
(Ezekiel 32:27), "...the uncircumcised, which are gone down to hell with their weapons of war..."
(Luke 16:23,24), "And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 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." If this man would only have lifted up his eyes to Christ on earth, he would not be lifting them up in Hell. I hope, dear Reader, that if
you are not saved, you will right now trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour, before it is too late."
(2nd Thessalonians 1:8,9), "In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who
shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power."
(2nd Peter 2:9), "The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be
(Revelation 14:11), "And the smoke of their (lost) torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast
and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."
(Matthew 25:30), "And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth (unbearable pain)."
(Matthew 25:41), "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his
(Revelation 20:15), "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
(Revelation 21:8), "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all
liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."
What a terrifying account concerning the lost. God is a just God, and His judgment upon the sinner is more than justified. But another attribute
of God is His love for the sinner. God, therefore provided a substitute for you and I. The Lord Jesus Christ took on human flesh and made the
payment for the sins of the world. This is the only provision God made for you and I
