Here we can see that in Mark chapter 9, Yeshua is warning us that if we are living in sin, we WILL find ourselves in hell, where the fire IS NEVER extinguished.
Many people such as Mary K Baxter have seen people tormented in hell. She has seen homosexuals walking through liquid lava, chained together. She saw witches in fire pits with grates over their heads, with flames pouring out. She heard the most wretched screams.
Today we have seen a loss of respect and a lack of fear of God. Most people have the attitude that they can take or leave God, and they say the sinners prayer and look at their iphones the moment after.
There is no real repentance, or fear of God what so ever. Maybe they don’t think that the wrath of God exists today, because we have taught that God is nice and accepting of our modern day sins.
We aren’t taught about Exodus 19, where the people couldn’t approach the mountain of God because God IS a consuming fire, and holy.
‘Be careful that you do not approach the mountain or touch the foot of it. Whoever touches the mountain is to be put to death.
We read in Malachi 3:6 where He says ……..“I the LORD do not change”
It is ONLY through Yeshua’s sacrifice that we can approach the Lord, and appear before Him with our garments washed.
Though, He is still as Holy as He ever was, but do we approach Him in prayer as though He was creator of the universe?
Even today, being believers, I would imagine if we were to appear before Him, we would be trembling in awe over His awesomeness, and justice that He stands on.
Can you imagine if we all got our perfect Justice? What a sobering thought that would be.
As believers we must teach others that they shouldn’t be so nonchalant about embracing their sins.
Make no mistake, if you are sitting in sin, and WILL NOT change your lifestyle habits, you will face that perfect justice and face fire some day.
Are you sleeping around with people you are not married to? Are you living together in a relationship where you are not married? Are you stealing time away from your boss? Do you take the Lord’s name in vein? Consider that for a moment. Do you write out OM* on facebook? Do you disrespect your parents?
The real deal is if you have stole just one thing in your life, you will face hell fire. It is only through Yeshua that we can enter into eternity, by what He has done for us on the cross.
However, Paul tells us in Philippians 2:12-13, “Therefore, my dear friends, … more in my absence – continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling
What does that mean? It means that we do sin every day, but we are to pick our selves up, and get back on the path of righteousness. We all sin every day, and we don’t face danger when we remain humble knowing God forgives and He has the best planned for us.
Though there is a difference between those persons who KNOW Christ, and strive for a righteous lifestyle, and those who couldn’t care less.
Do you care about your eternity? Would you gamble with the fact that you could never escape Hell if you found yourself there?
Yeshua talks about Hell more than anything else in the scripture because it is REAL, and people WILL burn alive for eternity.
If you KNOW you are living in sin, re-examine yourself and get right with God today, because your time could be up when you least expect it.
