""HELL????""
by Pastor Tony Sutton

Luk 16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
Luk 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
Luk 16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
Luk 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
Luk 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
Luk 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
Luk 16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
Luk 16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
Luk 16:27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
Luk 16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
Luk 16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
Luk 16:30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
Luk 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
       I WANT US TO LOOK AT THIS TRUE STORY. WE SEE THAT TWO DIED AND WENT IN TWO DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS. NOW PARADISE (ABRAHAM'S BOSOM) AND HELL MUST HAVE BEEN CLOSE, FOR THE RICH MAN COULD SEE LAZARUS IN ABRAHAM'S BOSOM. SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR AWAY. WHAT A SAYING. JUST THINK, YOU HAVE BEEN SO CLOSE TO ACCEPTING CHRIST. YET SO FAR AWAY. GOODNESS WILL NOT GET YOU THERE. THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY AND THAT IS THROUGH AND BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST!!!
WHO SHALL GO TO HELL?
Psalms 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
DOES THIS MEAN THAT ONLY WICKED PEOPLE WILL BE THERE? NO.
Mat 25:30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
DOES THIS MEAN THAT ONLY UNPROFITABLE SERVANTS WILL BE THERE? NO.
Pro 7:27 Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
DOES THIS MEAN THAT ONLY HOUSES OF ILL-REPUTE WILL BE THERE? NO.
Jam 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
DOES THIS MEAN THAT ONLY GOSSIPERS WILL BE THERE? NO.
Pro 27:20 Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.
DOES THIS MEAN THAT ONLY THE UNSATISFIED WILL BE THERE? NO.
 
WHO IS GOING TO HELL THEN THE LAKE OF FIRE?
Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
DOES THIS MEAN THAT ALL THAT ARE NOT SAVED WILL BE THERE? YES.

HOW BAD CAN IT BE?
Mat 5:29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Mat 5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Mat 18:8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
THE BIBLES SAYS THAT IT IS BETTER TO BE BLIND, MAIMED, HALT AND GO TO HEAVEN THAN TO HELL.
Mat 25:30 ... there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 25:41 ...everlasting fire...
Luk 16:28 ...place of torment...
Mar 9:44  ...worm dieth not..... fire is not quenched.
IMAGINE IN YOUR MIND, HOW BAD HELL IS GOING TO BE, IT'S NOWHERE CLOSE. THINK ABOUT THE RICH MAN LOOKING AT LAZARUS. LAZARUS IS IN PEACE BUT HE (THE RICH MAN) WAS IN MISERY. DON'T YOU THINK THAT AS YOU BURN IN THOSE ETERNAL FLAMES YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE YOUR LOVED ONES, KNOWING YOU COULD HAVE BEEN THERE YET YOU PUT IT OFF ONE MORE TIME. BELIEVE YOU ME, THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE ANY FRIENDS IN HELL!!!
I THINK I WILL BE OK.
I HAVE BEEN GOOD TO PEOPLE IN GENERAL. WHAT BAD I HAVE DONE IS PRETTY MUCH HIDDEN.
Job 26:6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.
Isaiah 5:14 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.
2Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
HELL IS GETTING BIGGER AND DON'T THINK THAT YOU WILL GET BY BECAUSE GOD DID NOT SPARE THE ANGELS AND HE WILL NOT SPARE YOU.
FINAL WORD
Isaiah 14:9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
    HELL IS MOVING TO MEET THEE!!! SATAN WILL MOVE TO YOU. HE WILL CATER TO YOUR EVERY WANT. IT DON'T MATTER WHO YOU ARE OR WHAT YOU ARE, WITHOUT JESUS YOU ARE DOOMED FOR A DEVILS HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
