CHRIST GOSPEL MISSION
SECOND SERIE OF THE EPISTLES FOR FEBUARY EDITION
HEAVEN AND HELL
Many have been distorted with a lot of questions, school of thoughts and some personal ideologies and mental conceptions in searching answers to questions on the reality and existence of heaven and hell .Overtimes God’s in his grace have taken many on journey to heaven and some to hell in order to ascertain it reality to mankind. All these visions is to ascertain to humanity that there’s a place ,an existence beyond this realm call Heaven /Hell .
Satan is in details of Heaven because he has been there before he fell –Isaiah 14:12, Ezekiel 28:14-18. The major problem of this generation is unbelieving and lack of faith, and devil is using this two weapons to create confusion in the heart of many .And if they hear not Moses and prophets, neither will they be persuaded ,though one rose from the dead – luke 16:31”
THE HORROR OF HELL
No enough words to describe the horror of hell! Hell is a place of torment, agony, and suffering for the lost .The pains and punishment in hell is beyond any human description! This is the whole truth, hell was not designed initially for humanity but for the fallen angels to be reserve in total chains and darkness until the day of the lord-2nd peter 2:4, Jude 1:6.Every souls that die without Jesus will go to hell for punishment not for eternal judgment! Eternal judgment will be on the lord’s day when every iniquities will be reveal and the secret unveil .Ever since the creation of this universe ,no one has taste the vial wrath of God judgment, everything has been reserved and sealed -Revelation 10:4 .the impeding horror and danger in Hell is not quantifiable to any suffering on earth. Hell is a place of doom and grievousness !
THE LAKE OF FIRE VERSUS HELL
Different ideologies with different school of thoughts have caused a great misconception on the knowledge of the lake of fire and hell .Many has mis-interpreted the juxtaposition. Let expound the word of God further in order to gain ground on the differences between the lake of fire and hell .Bible overtimes describe Hell as a PERSON (a cohort of the devil-Revelation 6:8) and as a SYSTEM(the force behind torment and agony –Revelation 1:8 , Jonah 2:2 ).In order word HELL is not a permanent place designed by God for the affliction of the lost because hell as a system and as a person will be judge .And death and Hell were cast into lake of fire .This is the second death-Revelation 20:14. The eternal doom for sinners ,the fallen angels ,false prophet , the beast , and the devil is the lake of fire –Revelation 19:20 ,20:10 ,14,15 .
And whosoever was not found written in the book of the lamb was cast into the lake of fire –Revelation 20:1. Bible didn’t affirm the final judgment to be in hell but in the lake of fire!
THE REALITY OF HEAVEN
As much as Hell is real, Heaven is much more real .Heaven is more real than any existence! The splendor, glory, and life in heaven is incomparable to any life here on earth .Heaven is our promise place of abode if we make it! And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and he shall be their God-Revelation 21:3.”And I saw a new heaven and new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were pass away; and there was no more sea ,vs. 21”.The new heaven is where GOD has prepared for us . For we know that if earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of GOD, a house not made with hands, eternal in the HEAVEN. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven-2nd Corinthians 5:1, 2. we need to earnestly labor for the crown and joy which is in heaven ,like Paul would says: fight the good fight of faith ,lay hold on eternal life, where unto thou art also called
