Again, PRAISE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST that He created HELLFIRE, ETERNAL Hell, for the Devil and his fallen angels, and, all of those who refuse to trust in the LORD JESUS CHRIST ALONE as God in the flesh and their only Eternal Savior are considered spiritually to be children of the DEVIL according to the LORD JESUS CHRIST!
Jesus told the Jewish leaders who rejected His Messiahship that the DEVIL is their spiritual father.
John 1:12 is clear: It states the ONE and ONLY condition for becoming a CHILD OF GOD: BELIEF in JESUS CHRIST. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name
Here is something Biblical but revolutionary for the people here to grasp:
The eternal fire in HELL is an example of God's LOVE and MERCY. Does that sound shocking? Here is why:
NOBODY will suddenly wake up once their soul leaves their body and they realize Jesus is real and they are now in Hell. They become hardened like their spiritual father the Devil. Notice the rich man never asked to be let out of Hell, he knew it would be of no use. Notice in Revelation that even as the LORD sends plagues and judgements down upon the people who follow the Beast, they do not repent, instead they admit God is doing it and hate Him all the more and curse Him the text says. That right there destroys the ideas that claim eventually everyone will trust in Jesus. Now, imagine all of these people in Hell: Millions upon millions of unsaved haters of God and haters of the Lord Jesus Christ, all together. Nazis, murderers, rapists, thieves, you name it, and everyone in between, who died refusing the Lord Jesus as their only eternal Savior. Do you know what they would do to each other? Then you add all of the fallen angels and devils and demons in that lot.
They would attack and eternally vex each other. It would be horrific! The fire in Hell is actually a merciful act sent by God to keep them from attacking and enslaving and shredding each other. It is like an eternal quarantine. Parents think about it like this: If your child who you love was targetted by a man who was infected with a deadly disease and his goal was to infect and destroy your child, would you not do everything within your power to keep that person away from your child? That is how God views the hardened unsaved person who refuses to trust in Jesus Christ: He or she is a walking heap of death and if allowed that death would spread. THE ONLY CURE is JESUS, faith alone in HIM ALONE. Then we are cleansed and justified forever.
Regarding the Bible verse about every knee shall bow and every toungue will confess. YES. That is true. But most of those people will do it before the Lord throws them into HELLFIRE to burn forever. That is a scene from the Great White Throne Judgement which is for unsaved people only.
If you have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ as God the Eternal Messiah Savior alone for eternal life, not faith plus anything else, then praise God, you do not have to fear Hell. Hell is to be feared for the UNSAVED> Jesus said do not fear he who can kill the body but HE, God, who can destroy (torment forever) BOTH body AND soul in HELL.
Why do you mute and water down the warnings of Jesus to the LOST?
By the way, I love you people here in this forum. I thank you and appreciate the opportunity to have discussions with you.
To any sensitive born again Christians here: Please do not misunderstand me. I love you as my fellow family in the Lord Jesus. I understand that this world and life is full of sorrow, pain, and bad things. Know this: If you have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ alone as your only Savior, Jesus is there for you. HE loves you precious child of God. Never ever fear HELL if you are a saved person.
To those people here who refuse to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ alone as your only Savior, plus NOTHING ELSE (Not Jesus plus water baptism or good works etc), you need to turn to Jesus now and be saved before you end up burning in Hellfire forever.
For those of you who say "The Greek words prove me out". No. The Greek words used for the eternality of torment in Hell are the same words for the eternality of God and the everlasting life of the saved born again believer.
Think about this: If someone will never accept Jesus as their Savior in this one life (Hebrews 9:27), what makes you think they would in the next life? Recently I was cursed out by a hate-filled atheist who cursed the Lord Jesus to me and told me he would NEVER in any way bow before Jesus and accept Jesus as his Savior. What do you make of someone like that? This person told me he hates Jesus and he hates Christians and I asked him what would he do even if he directly stood before the Lord Jesus Christ, he told me he would curse Jesus and hate him and go to Hell. Do you honestly think a man like this who hates all of you and myself and our Lord Jesus on this forum would ever "wake up" and say "okay okay now I believe"?
