The word of God cannot be doubted or challenged! The basic information we need concerning the past, the present or the future is in it. God’s word is authentic and reliable. “God speaks to mankind through His word of truth as found in the Bible. We read that, “Every word of God is pure” (Proverbs 30:5). Only the truth of God’s word can make us free, but the doctrines and commandments of men will cause us to be eternally lost.
It is truly saddening that so many people still doubt the realty of hell fire! Some are saying it is not scriptural. Beloved, that is the greatest deceit of the devil, the enemy of the soul. Look at this:
“But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. (Revelation 19:20). Thus is the destiny of the antichrist and the false prophet and all who followed them. They will definitely fall in the battle of Armageddon.
Remember, after rapture, The Lord Jesus Christ will come back to deal with the enemies of Israel. Do not be surprised! “The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet…” Revelation 16:12.
Men are really trying to do this at all cost. They know that time is coming when they have to cross the river Euphrates in order to reach Israel for the great battle. Men have constructed dam, called Anatolia dam. This dam is for the river Euphrates to be drained for them to cross to Israel. They spent approximately 32 Billion dollars for the construction. It was sponsored by ‘the kings of the east’ (China and others). “I heard the size of their army, which was 200 million mounted troops.” Revelation 9:16. The people that miss rapture will definitely be selected for this battle. God forbid! We cannot be among them in Jesus name! We will be raptured in Jesus name!
Also, in Revelation 20:10, the Bible tells us what will happen to Satan, the old serpent: “And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” That marks the end of Satan regarding his influence in the world, and in fact in any part of the creation of God. He will join the beast and the false prophet in the hell fire.
The beast and the false prophet will ‘senior ‘ him with 1000 years in hell fire! They shall be tormented day and night, forever and ever! This signifies the Eternity of this place. It is a matter of interest to note that Satan’s first act is recorded in Genesis Chapter 3 (The 3rd chapter from the beginning), where as his last act on a worldwide scale is mentioned in Revelation Chapter 20 (The 3rd chapter from the end).
The beast, the false prophet and some of those that went for the battle of Armageddon and Satan will be in hell fire waiting for the other unsaved people according to the scripture:
“Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it…” Revelation 20:11-15. This proclaims the final judgment of the unsaved, which will take place at the end of the Kingdom age. ‘and Him Who sat on it…’ proclaims none other than God; however we must understand that it is the person of the Godhead ,the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 25:31); He is the Saviour today; He will be the judge tomorrow. Verse 12 says, ‘And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God.’ (This is the second resurrection, the resurrection of damnation, and the books were opened: and another was opened, which is the book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books…” Verse 15, “Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.” This includes every single individual who is not saved, beginning with Adam and Eve. That is, if they did not come back to God.
The question is not “Why would a loving God send anyone to hell?” The question should be why would anyone choose hell over a loving God? The choice is yours! At this age, is Jesus Christ is still knocking at your door? Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” Revelation 3:20.
