God is in Hell too

You Can’t Hide from God!

Scripture Reference: Psalm 139:7,8 (KJV)

Psalm 139:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

Have we ever really taken the time to realize that God is in hell too!

To some this may be a new fact but to most this is old news that we may just need reminded of. Whatever the case may be we need to keep this in mind as we live our day to day lives.

Some may think that there is a deep, dark, hidden, quiet corner that they can go to where God may not be able to see them but I am here to tell you that God is there. God is everywhere, he is even in hell too. So if you think that your sin is going unnoticed then you are wrong saint because God sees you even there.

When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into the fire they were in a hell of a situation (Daniel 3:23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.) . Although they were not in literal hell they were in the closest thing that man can see to hell while on earth. This was the perfect opportunity for God to illustrate to the world that he is in hell too.

Some may think that because God is in hell too should be a comforting note but in reality this should give you reason to never even look that way (to hell) again. I am sure that when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were delivered from the fire they realized how much God had just blessed them but at the same time they probably never wanted to go back in that fire again.

Though they had been used by God in a mighty way, they were godly enough to know not to play with fire. Are we playing with fire? Are we tempting God? He has told us that no man knows the day nor the hour (Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.) but that he is coming back soon. Will you be ready?

Since God is omnipotent (Revelation 19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.) . He is not just a visitor but he is even ruling hell. We already know that God can never and will never live anywhere that he is not in charge of. Hell is no exception. Although he has total authority in hell his role there is completely different than what it is in earth and heaven.

You can never satisfy hell. Hell is a bottomless pit that requires more and more to satisfy her (Isaiah 5:14 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.) . If you have two girlfriends then you will want three and if you manage three well you will wonder why you can’t have four. The desire (greed) just gets stronger and stronger as you feed it. It wants more and more. (Proverbs 27:20 Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.).
