“11 And I saw a Great White Throne, and Him that sat on it, from Whose face the Earth and the Heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the Books were opened: and another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the Books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and Hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and Hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.” Revelation 20:11-15
Just yesterday I heard of two separate conversations from friends who had spoken with others regarding hell and neither one of the people they were talking to believed in hell. One person expressed her dismay at those who have read the Bible in it’s entirety and they still believe in hell. A third person, an unbeliever, overheard the conversation and stated she would rather be in hell than just ‘sleep’ for eternity.
Such is the state of the modern church. Preachers are scared to preach on sin and hell because they are scared their congregation will get upset with them. Let me tell you something friend, you can get mad, glad or whatever it is that you want to get but if you are a Bible believing Christian, than you know that hell is real and Jesus Christ came to die on Calvary’s Cross to deliver WHOSOEVER will believe from eternal damnation.
On the other hand, if you don’t believe in hell…well to be frank and honest, and I don’t say this with one bit of ‘gladness’ in my heart, then you don’t have a proper understanding of the Atonement or the Word of God and unless you repent you are going to find out first hand that there is a hell. God forbid no!
“16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be Saved.” John 3:16-17
There is a hell my friend and Jesus Christ came to die on Calvary’s Cross to Save us from a devil’s hell. We either believe the Word of God to be True; ALL of it, the full counsel, rightly divided Word…or we believe it to be a lie.
If you are sitting in a church preaches there is no hell – run; get out from among them and be ye separate.

1 thought on “THE SECOND DEATH”
I am reminded by your post of the two criminals crucified with Jesus. One mocked Him, thinking he should be saved just because. It was like he thought he was entitled. Then the one on the right may have heard Jesus ask forgiveness for His tormentors and realized that he was in the presence of God’s Son. He ask to be remembered when Jesus entered the Kingdom, and he was saved. We all must choose our eternal home, so yes, I agree that He’ll is real.
