YOU WOULDN’T WANT YOUR WORST ENEMY TO GO TO HELL

Can’t wrap your mind around forgiveness? Take a look at any of these videos about hell; you’re not going to want your worst enemy to go.

Jesus tells us that hell was designed for the devil and his demons, not for man. Matt 25:41 “Then shall he say also unto them, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.”

Proverbs 24:17 says, “Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth.” And Jesus, as he was being crucified said, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”

You’ll see why Jesus said that when you watch any of these short videos on hell. I’ve also included a few clips of people who’ve made contracts with Satan, like Bob Dylan, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Michael Jackson and several rap stars, and what happens to them.

There’s hundreds of scriptures in the Bible about hell, the devil and Satan but for the most part we’ve chosen not to look at them. But this stuff is real.

Did you ever wonder about the phrase, “weeping and gnashing of teeth?” I have. One of the videos listed below defines this in a way you will understand what it means. These clips are by various people, not preachers necessarily in the traditional way we see them. The most conservative of all are Bill Wiese and his wife.

You’ll never see things quite the same after watching any of these. And you’ll have a great desire to forgive and help people. I‘m not an expert on this, but I’m not afraid to look because it was a subject Jesus had a lot to say about. God shows us the truth of our times if we want to know. I believe we have to open our eyes. People in our world are in trouble and we can help them.

These are just some of the clips I’ve looked at. There’s many more. The Bible describes horrific things about hell and these videos could be scary to some people, so look at your own risk. Most are not professionally done, so be a little patient. Also I highly recommend you only watch one or two at a time. It’s a lot to take in.

  2. This is a pretty creepy one but informative https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkgunX_Sa_0
  3. This guy is simple and sweet. Have a little patience with him. He defines “gnashing of teeth” in a way I could understood it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxAyw-fxJ_U
  4. Tireo is a Christian rapper. He’s a little wild, but when you consider the nature of many rappers, he is perfect for that genre https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkqSC8z2RIk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwUffrMRDqE
  5. A few clips about celebrities selling their souls to Satan:

EASTER – PAID UP FRONT

Why didn’t God make it so that there would be no sin? Because God made people in his own image, with the freedom of will to choose. God didn’t want puppets. God has a wonderful life planned for everyone, but He wanted people to choose it, not be forced into it.

But people didn’t believe in His goodness and turned away from Him. When the first man and woman sinned, it began to cultivate in the blood. They rebelled and chose to do things against God’s plan of good, and so the results were ungodly too. “For the wages [payment, harvest] of sin is death” (Rom 6:23). These wages came in the form of instant death like the murder of Abel, or in various partial deaths such as a partial death of a healthy mind, partial death in the functioning of various body parts, partial death of right thoughts about prosperity. You get the picture.

God knew that once sin got started, the results would be passed down from generation to generation. Sin brings death into a person’s body, mind, emotions and spirit and if allowed to go on, eventually destroys him entirely. God didn’t want that. What would be the point if every person was destroyed and gone? God would have no family left! He had to have a way for man to escape the results of sin that would kill him. So instead of having to pay with his life for every sin, God said people could pay with something dear to them and the sin would be covered, the debt paid.

In Old Testament times sin was covered with the payment of sheep, wheat, barley and other things that had significance to the people. But God had something better in mind that only He knew the full value of. He planned to give mankind His own son, who people could then take into their lives and hearts. People would then have the one and only perfect payment for all sins—Jesus.

When a person accepts Jesus as their own, then they have the most treasured sacrifice to give. Whether we know it or not, when we first believed in Jesus, we allowed Him to pay off our sin debts for us.

Jesus took the results of all our sin, including death and hell. But since Jesus had committed no sin, even death and hell couldn’t overcome Him; it couldn’t stick to Him. God raised Him up and outsmarted the best the devil had to throw at Him. Jesus Christ rose from the dead as victorious over all adversaries.

If you don’t know Jesus Christ and you want to, then all you need to do is “declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved” (Rom 10:9). Jesus Christ comes into our hearts and all the old sin is washed out. We become new people with the seed of God’s Holy Spirit in us to stay.

The Holy Spirit in us rejects sin. So when we sin and rebel and make mistakes (and we all do), God says just admit it, say we’re sorry and we’re forgiven. No more sacrificial payments. Jesus paid it all up front. And no sin or the results of sin can overcome or stick to us either if we don’t want them. We can live in the goodness of God’s plan for a wonderful life now and we get to have it forever.
