So if Jesus died for our sins and set us free from the penalty of sin, does that mean no one goes to hell now?
Certainly not! The forgiveness of sins is not a coverall blanket tossed over the whole world – but is instead a free gift available for the taking by anyone who will believe in their heart that Jesus is Lord. Salvation is certainly an open invitation – but one that must be received.  (more…)

There seems to be a lot of debate these days concerning the love of God.
More specifically whether a loving God could/would ever send anyone to hell and whether or not God would be considered loving in the event that someone did in fact go to hell.  Have you ever asked yourself this question? If God is love, how can he send someone to hell? I’ve certainly asked it – many people have. (more…)

Revelation 20:15

“And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.”

Here is an incredibly scary fact about life – every human on earth is born into sin and separated from God.
Here is a second even scarier fact about life – because of this sin we are ultimately headed for the lake of fire. Sin is an eternal death sentence that hangs around our neck.

God’s punishment for sin is to confine sinners into an abyss void of all love or light and full of agony and torture. It’s a place where God pours His entire wrath into a burning pool of unrepentant people. It is literally a lake of fire burning with the righteous judgment of a holy God – a place we all deserve.

Yikes! (more…)

I was having a conversation with my brother recently. (He made me promise to keep him anonymous so I’m not using his name.)

I told him that as I’m getting older I spend much more time thinking about eternity and life after death.
I also told him that I want him to be in heaven one day and that I can’t stand the thought of spending eternity without him.

His Reply? “I tend not to think about whats ahead. I let whatever happens happen.” (more…)

Reconciliation is important to God.
At a time when we were His enemies, God acted to repair our damaged relationship.
At a time when sin separated us from Him, God set out to reconcile our estrangement.
And in a world where we experience brokenness in our relationships with others, God expects us to make reconciliation as well. (more…)

For the last few days I’ve felt a heavy burden for the lost souls that die without Jesus Christ. For this reason I’ve felt it was necessary to revisit a former post titled Reality of Hell and expand on it. In my first post I briefly mentioned the book “Love Wins” by Rob Bell and wrote about my utter rejection of it’s teachings. I reject all of Universalism – It is just unable to stand up under true Biblical scrutiny. This post however is not intended to debate Universalism but is written to inform my readers that their is an actual, literal hell. (more…)

Prayer 09/30/11

Father God,
I feel your spirit drawing me to minister to the lost and broken people. I feel you calling me to show your love in a cold and dying world.
God you have burdened my heart with the sadness and despair of the souls who die apart from you. I know I cannot make people choose you, but I can tell them about your salvation. I cannot force them to accept your truth but I can demonstrate your love for them with my life and actions. I cannot make them believe but I can plead with them to repent, to turn from sin and embrace you.
I don’t want anyone to perish.
Father, let me be a light for truth. Fill me with your spirit so I can be loving, compassionate and understanding towards all.

Amen
