Hell Is Real

And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, ‘where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’  Mark 9:46-48

One night, Michele and I arrived at a very crowded restaurant for dinner.  People stood shoulder to shoulder in the waiting area, many of them clutching a buzzer that would announce it was their turn to be seated. 

Shortly, an obviously irritated couple walked out.  The woman announced to everyone, “You don’t want to go in there!  The service is lousy and the staff is rude.  The food is cold and inedible.  We refuse to eat it.”  As they marched out into the parking lot, she reiterated, “You don’t want to go in there!”

At that point, we all had a decision to make:  would we stay or leave?  Each person’s decision hinged on one thing:  whether they trusted the testimony of the woman who said, “Don’t go in there!”

Jesus Christ has given us a testimony about hell.  He said hell is real place, a fiery place, and it is forever.  You don't want to go there.

But there is good news!  Jesus Christ, God's Son, came from heaven to earth, lived a perfectly sinless life, and died a violent death on the cross to satisfy the wrath of God for our sin.  And on the third day, He rose from the dead. 

Jesus also testified that every person who repents from their sin and calls on Him to save them will not go to hell, but will be in heaven with Him forever!

What will you do with Jesus’ testimony?  Have you trusted Jesus? 

Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
