Now there was a rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, joyously living in splendor every day. And a poor man named Lazarus was laid at his gate, covered with sores, and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man’s table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores.
Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom; and the rich man also died and was buried.
In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried out and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame.’
But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that during your life you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things; but now he is being comforted here, and you are in agony. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.’
And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, that you send him to my father’s house— for I have five brothers—in order that he may warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’
But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’
But he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent!’
But he said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.’”
Some may have heard about the author, John Bunyan, who wrote “Pilgram’s Progress” (1678).
What MOST don’t know is this:
John Bunyan was literally taken into Heaven and then into Hell and shown the reality of both. ONLY through the Salvation of Jesus Christ can any be saved from the torment of hell. The following is a reading of his testimony, with illustrations:
HEAVEN IS VERY REAL and HELL IS VERY REAL. We only get THIS LIFE to choose which place we want to spend eternity. . . . BUT we MUST follow the rules established by the Heavenly Father . . His house. . . His Rules. You choose to obey them or not.
THESE ARE THE RULES ESTABLISHED BY THE HEAVENLY FATHER:
ONLY through the Salvation offered through Jesus Christ, whose Hebrew name is Yahshua, can ANY be reconciled to the Heavenly Father and become a part of the Kingdom of Heaven. . . . PERIOD!!! END OF STORY!!!
WARNING!!!!! DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY DOCTRINES THAT SAY YOU WILL GET ANOTHER CHANCE WHEN YOU DIE . . . That is a LIE FROM THE PIT OF HELL!!!
. . . THAT IS A “doctrine of demons” that is going around to give FALSE HOPE to people . . . Providing ear-tickling lies to those who don’t want to believe the truth of eternal judgement . . . That those in hell can have another chance. . . . . . . DON’T BELIEVE THAT LIE!!!!!
NO I WON’T DEBATE THE TRUTH OF THE REALITY OF ETERNAL SUFFERING FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT ACCEPT JESUS AS THEIR SAVIOR IN THIS LIFETIME THAT WE ARE GIVEN.
WE HAVE ONLY THIS LIFE TO CHOOSE WHETHER WE WANT THE FREE GIFT OF SALVATION, OFFERED THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, WHOSE HEBREW NAME IS YAHSHUA.
——-> YOU MUST CHOOSE and no choice means you have chosen to go to hell. . . THEN, at the Great Throne Room Judgement, you WILL be sent to the Lake of FIRE.
SOMEBODY READING THIS POST IS PLAYING AROUND WITH ETERNITY. . . AND HAS NOT GIVEN HIS/HER FULL LIFE TO JESUS. . . . YOU MUST REPENT AND ASK JESUS TO FORGIVE YOU. ASK HIM TO BE IN ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE. . . YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR . . . DON’T DELAY . . . THIS MAY BE YOUR LAST DAY ALIVE TO MAKE A DECISION.
PLEASE STOP AND MAKE YOUR CHOICE TODAY TO FOLLOW JESUS. . . . BECAUSE THIS MAY BE THE LAST DAY YOU ARE ALIVE.
SONGS BY KEITH GREEN
These songs are from the late 1970s, early 1980s, but VERY relevant for today. Some of you may not have heard about Keith Green, but he had a MAJOR impact in the lives of many Christians in his time. He died an early death, but is ALIVE and FILLED with JOY in presence of our Beloved SAVIOR, Jesus Christ.
