Where Are You Headed?

“And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.” Isaiah 66:24

Upcoming Church Scriptures To Read: Matthew 24 / 1 Kings 18

Sadly, while the Kingdom is celebrating, there will be incredible suffering as those who reject the King will be left to the consequences of their own will.

Many a person has been brought into Heaven by being scared out of hell. That’s why I was saved. I became a Christian when I heard a sermon on hell. At 3 ½ years old, I usually slept in the pew in the Assembly of God church my parents attended. But one particular Sunday night, the preacher preached on hell and I listened intently. “Satan has a stopwatch in his hand,” he said, “and he sees his time coming to an end. Therefore, he’s chasing you harder and faster and more energetically than ever because he sees his time is running out and he wants you.”

Me? I thought. So when the invitation was given, I slid off the pew, went forward, and got saved that night. My parents prayed with me later on in the evening and I gave my life to Jesus right then.

I knew God’s love, but what I needed to know was the reality of hell. Maybe you know people who aren’t responding to the goodness of God and committing their life to Jesus. Very respectfully, I say, “Give them hell.” Let them know that if they’re not going to respond to the love of God, they will have to deal with eternity apart from God.

By His Spirit,

Pastor Bill
