The Fear of Hell!

At the end of the 1,000 years, Satan will be set free.  He will fool the countries of Gog and Magog, which are at the far ends of the earth, and their people will follow him into battle. They will have as many followers as there are grains of sand along the beach, and they will march all the way across the earth. They will surround the camp of God's people and the city God loves. But fire will come down from heaven and destroy the whole army.  Then the devil who fooled them will be thrown into the lake of fire and burning sulfur. He will be there with the beast and the false prophet, and they will be in pain day and night forever and ever.

I saw a great white throne with someone sitting on it. Earth and heaven tried to run away, but there was no place for them to go. I also saw all the dead people standing in front of that throne. Every one of them was there, no matter who they had once been. Several books were opened, and then the book of life was opened. The dead were judged by what those books said they had done.

The sea gave up the dead people who were in it, and death and its kingdom also gave up their dead. Then everyone was judged by what they had done.  Afterwards, death and its kingdom were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death.   Anyone whose name wasn't written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:7-15 (CEV)

Yes, there is a lake of fire and everyone who's name is not written in the Book of Life we'll spend eternity in pain, day and night forever and ever!  Jesus Christ paid the price so that you can spend eternity in Heaven with Him. But if you refuse to believe in Jesus and reject Him as Lord of your life you will spend eternity with Satan, the Beast and the False Prophet in constant pain forever.

Once you arrive in hell there is no way to be relieved of your suffering. The Bible never talks about those in Hell being able to repent and and leave that pit of eternal despair. There is no record of any man or woman who was able to repent and be saved after they died!  

Do not take the Word of the Lord lightly! If you do not confess Him here He will not confess you before the Father. Heaven is real, but so is Hell! May the joys of Heaven pull on your heart so that you will desire to live there forever. But may the fires of Hell burn in your imagination so that you will be afraid to walk away from Jesus. When life is very bad someone may say it is like “Hell on earth.” But Hell is worse then anything could be on this earth and Heaven is more wonderful as well!

“Lord Jesus, fill my heart with the joys of knowing You and looking forward to Heaven, but as long as I live on this earth may the “Fear of Hell” guard me from foolishness and sin.  May you, Jesus be praised forever.    Amen!”
