"Wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat." Matthew 7:13

Will you be one of the above? One of the many? Or one of the few who find Jesus Christ and make Him the Lord of your life? I make no attempt to be gentle in my approach here. Believe me, the time is far too short, and hell is a REAL place, with REAL FIRE, and eternity never ends. This is a place in which YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE!!!

What's happens if you miss the Rapture?
You will enter a period of suffering sent from God upon the earth at the end time because of its awful wickedness. Not for a billion planets of SOLID GOLD would I be in their place. Those who are not ready will face horrors like the world has never known since before the beginning of time, and ultimately end up with Satan in the Lake of Fire forever and ever.

"For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be." Matthew 24:21 (In the Beginning...and Then)

"The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: The smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night." Rev 14:10,11

"And at that time shall Michael stand up, and the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book." Dan 12:1

-- Is not based on imagination;
-- It will not be a relief from this world;
-- You will not be with friends;
-- NO ONE can pray you out of there.
-- There is no such place as purgatory,
--There is no such thing as reincarnation,
--There is no chance for any relief.

"The Inferno"

(Dante wrote this inscription over the gates of hell in his epic poem)

I am the way into the city of woe.
I am the way to a forsaken people.
I am the way into eternal sorrow...
Only those elements time cannot wear
Were made before me, and beyond time I stand.
Abandon all hope ye who enter here.

Puritan preacher Thomas Hooker explained hell this way:

"Conceive thus much, if all the diseases in the world did seize on one man, and if all torments that all the tyrants in the world could devise were cast upon him, and if all the creatures in heaven and earth did conspire the destruction of this man; and if all the devils in hell did labor to inflict punishments upon him, you would think this man to be in a miserable condition. And yet all this is but a beam of God's indignation. If the beams of God's indignation be so hot, what is the full sum of his wrath, when it shall seize upon the soul of a sinful creature in full measure?"

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake of fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Rev 21:8 (rf 2:11)

"The devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever, Whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
Rev 20:10,15

"Hell is the future abode of the wicked: The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." Ps 9:17

On the other hand........

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosever believeth on him shall have everlasting life."
Jn 3:16

Did you get that?


shall have everlasting life. Doesn't sound like a lot to ask for in return for eternal life with Jesus, does it?
