When discussing hardship people will say, “I’ve been though hell.” But guess what? That statement is false—they haven’t been though Hell. At the close of this life, they may end up in Hell, but they sure haven’t faced anything like Hell. You see, Hell is the final punishment for the devil and his angels, and since people love to do the devil’s work, they will join Satan there (Matthew 25:41,46).
Hell is a special punishment devised by God for that special Day which is the Judgment (Hebrews 9:27; 1 Corinthians 4:5; John 5:28-29). I understand that men can suffer badly in life, but that is just suffering, and we cannot compare it to the horrors that await the wicked at the end of time. Hell is a place of everlasting darkness, fire that won’t go out, pain explained to us in earthly terms like “weeping and gnashing of teeth”. etc. (Matt. 3:12, 13:38-43; Mark 9:43-50; Luke 16:22-25; Romans 3:4-9, 14:10-12; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
