I got the opportunity to speak On Sunday, February 12, 2012 at Breath of Life Assembly of God in West Carrollton, OH. I was privileged to share a sermon that God had brought to me over the past couple of months dealing with the urgent question of “Is Hell Real?”.
I want to share a few points from the sermon with you. The full sermon and PowerPoint slides are available on the Breath of Life website.
The Bible Is The Word of God
Some question the claim the Bible is the real literal words of God. They believe a host of ideas and theories about it:
- It is a book of moral stories only
- It has value but it isn’t the only book of God
- Men wrote it to control their followers
- It is archaeological inaccurate.
The list could go on and on. They are all 100% false statements. Some have a measure of truth but not the truth. It was written by men. They were writing under the inspiration and leading of God the Holy Spirit. I believe it is absolutely the word of God.
The Bible Says There Is A Hell With A Lake of Fire
The reason it is imperative to know the Bible is the absolute word of God is because we then know we have a definite reference. We can look to it to see what the fate of humanity is. You can know if hell is real.
The bible clearly states there will be a day of judgement. There will be a final punishment. It is more than a mere story. It is as sure as the face on your nose. Those who fail to trust in Christ will be punished by the good and just God of the universe. They will suffer eternal punishment for their sins in hell.
Revelation of John 21:8 MKJV: But the fearful, and the unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, will have their part in the Lake burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
The Bible Says You Should Be Concerned.
The remedy to this problem is found in the Grace of God through Jesus Christ. As followers of Christ we should not only share this truth, you should have compassion and wish to share this fact. Your heart should almost cry when you see someone who is rejecting God. You are commissioned by Christ to share this truth with your sphere of influence.
Do You Believe Hell is Real? If so, what will you do about it?
