“Hell – No – I will not go”
District Elder M.L. Maughmer, Jr.
OPENING:- Close your eyes and go with me on a journey in your spiritual mind that will change your life for all eternity. Imagine your life and everything is going well for you. You have a reasonable portion of good health, friends, money, your relationship is working out just fine. You are young or for your age you couldn’t feel better. Everything in your life is going just the way it should be and the way that you planned for it to go. In all actuality you are able to walk through life saying zip-a-dee doda zip-a-dee ah my o my things are going my way.
When all of the sudden you are dead. You see your body lying there and you begin to notice as your spirit begins to separate from your physical but dead body. As your spirit begins to separate from your body you begin to hear a sound in your ears that just keeps getting louder and louder. It’s the most horrific and gut wrenching screams you have ever heard. There is crying and weeping, screams of agony and torment, and yelling unlike anything you have ever heard before and it just keeps getting louder and louder.
As you drift farther and farther away from your dead carcass, all of the sudden sheer agony, torment, and pain hit you from the top of your head to the souls of your feet, you begin to scream because of the unbearable pain that you are feeling. You begin to grind your teeth together in agony and as you grind them harder and harder they literally begin to break off causing even more and more pain to your agony. Your spiritual eternal body begins to thrash violently because of the agonizing pain it is feeling, you begin convulsing from the pain uncontrollably, but the whole time you are vehemently aware of everything that is happening to you.
Suddenly your nostrils fill with the smell of sulfur and burning flesh, it’s a smell worse than the smell of death. Your body temperature begins to rise to an unbearable degree you scream in torment from the agonizing pain and the blistering heat that comes from your body. You notice that your skin begins to blister and crackle from the heat, the blisters begin to bust oozing out nothing but pain wrenching smoke, when suddenly out of every orifice of your body flames literally begin to shoot out you are burning but not being consumed.
In sheer agonizing torment, you begin to notice that you are now beginning to physically transform into the most hideous looking creature imaginable. You look like you, but the lower part of your body is transforming into what appears to look like a giant worm.
You scream out in total agony and disbelief realizing that you are in hell. You smell hell, see hell, feel hell, and you are hell. You cry out let me die I want to die when you recall you saw your physical body lying there and your spirit separate from it. You remember the scripture of Hebrew 9:27 “It is appointed once for man to die, but after this the judgment”.
You realize that what people have been saying all these years was wrong death is not the end of it all there is life after death. Eternal life that you will never die from, you’ll never grow old, you’ll never escape. Eternal life that will constantly keep you in the condition you are in now.
You cry out in total desperation God how could you let this happen to me, why didn’t you warn me about this place. When suddenly every message the preacher preached comes to your remembrance. You vividly recall hearing the words of Acts 2:38 “Repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost”, but you felt you had plenty of time and didn’t bother to repent.
The mental anguish compounds on the torment you already feel. You hear the screams of other souls that have been punished to spend eternity in hell, but you can’t see them because darkness has engulfed you. You cry out God don’t you care I thought you were a loving God, how could you send me to this place. When you suddenly hear in your mind the words of John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth on him shall not perish, but have everlasting life” you had your chance, but your life was going along just fine and you felt you had plenty of time so you refused to believe, now you are paying the price. You suddenly realize that John 3:16 was not all there was to that chapter. John 3:36 begins to ring in your mind and you hear these words “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him”. You rejected the love of God now His wrath abideth on you forever.
