Summary: Description of the Misery of Hell, the Missionary in Hell, and the Message from Hell

  Study Tools

Intro: Jesus spoke often in parables. Parables picture

for us important truths. In this parable, two main

characters are shown: The Rich Man, who was unsaved

(as evidenced by his lack of compassion on Lazarus in

their earthly days and by where he finds himself in

the afterlife), and Lazrarus, a poor man, TOTALLY

DEPENDENT upon God for his provision on earth...and

a saved man, (as evidenced by where he is found in

the afterlife). BOTH MEN DIED...LAZARUS WAS CARRIED

BY THE ANGELS INTO ABRAHAM’S BOSOM, THE RICH MAN DIED

AND WAS BURIED...."AND IN HELL HE LIFTED UP HIS EYES"

FROM THIS PARABLE, LET US EXAMINE THREE TRUTHS

ABOUT HELL:

I. THE MISERY of Hell

a. Looking up and seeing where he could’ve been.

b. Being alone..no companions recorded here.

c. Being in TORMENT

d. Being in AGONY

e. Constantly burning w/no relief in sight

f. Realizing this is PERMANENT no rescue, no

relief, no rest...FOREVER!!!

II. THE MISSIONARY in Hell

a. Suddenly the Rich man becomes a believer in

the reality of Hell...(albeit too late)

b. He begins to BEG (NOW WHO’S BEGGING??) FATHER

ABRAHAM to SEND LAZRUS TO HIS FATHER’S HOUSE

TO WARN THEM.

c. "I HAVE FIVE BROTHERS" (concerned about his

family now...again..too late!)

d. "they will believe if someone comes from the

dead!!" (Yet JESUS ROSE AGAIN...AND MANY

STILL FAIL TO BELIEVE OR RECEIVE HIM)

III. THE MESSAGE from Hell

a. It is an ACTUAL place...not a figment of

someone’s imagination.

b. It is an AWFUL place...worse than words

can describe...worse than we can imagine!

c. It is an AVOIDABLE place...no one has to

go there...WE AVOID HELL BY

1. REALIZING we’re sinners and can’t save

ourselves.

2. REPENTING of our sin

3. RECEIVING JESUS CHRIST as our personal

Savior.

4. RESOLVING TO WALK WITH HIM DAILY IN

THIS LIFE

John 14:6, Acts 4:12, John 3:16, I John 1:9

Yes there is Misery in Hell, but Listen to the Missionary and the Message from Hell..DON’T COME HERE..

...PLEASE HEAR JESUS CALLING AND RESPOND TO HIM NOW!
