Summary: This is a message that deals with Hell and its eternal reality. Brought in the Light and Love of Jesus Christ.
Intro: I am continuing the message on the Reality of Hell.
This is a message that deals with the things that will be for those that chose not to ask Jesus into their hearts and to forgive their sins.
Luke 16:25 says, “25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime received thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
Jesus says that Father Abraham was telling him all of the good things that he had received in his life time; You eat of the fat of the land, Lazarus was hungry, you drank all you wanted and Lazarus was thirsty, you had clothes, fine clothes, but Lazarus did not.
You had Joy and now it is sorrow, you had happiness and now it is despair, you had safety and now there is only danger.
In Hell every sense will be magnified, your taste, touch, sight, smell, and hearing will be at top performance. You will hear all of the screams, taste the air of grief, see the darkness, touch things and not know what they are, and you will smell the stench of death all around you, with absolutely no comfort.
It is a place of Final Separation from God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son.
It is a place that you will beg to get out of but will be unable too. You will be ignored as you ignored Jesus and all of the things that He has done for you.
All of those that have ignored the calling of Jesus and said that they will not believe in Him, this is the life that you will chose for yourself, will it be the Smoking or Non-smoking section of Eternity.
All of those that chose not to do righteous will suffer the same fate, an atmosphere of death and reside in a place of forgotten men and women.
Revelations 22:11 says, “11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he who is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
Last week I preach the first five torments that are in Hell;
1. The torment of Association with the Wicked.
2. The torment of Separation from Family.
3. The torment of Hunger and Thirst.
4. The torment of Eternal Darkness.
5. The torment of Eternal Death
VI. The Torment of Scorpion-Like Stings of memory and remorse.
Living in the land of Regret!
Forever Remembering the reason of why you are there, failing to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.
Daniel 12:2-3 says, “2 and many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 And they that are wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.”
Those that ask shall receive the pardon of Christ and those that do not will receive eternal punishment for it.
You will perpetually remember the things in this life that you did, all cheaters will remember the ones that they cheated, and Murders will be haunted by the ones that they murdered.
All Liars will be haunted by their lies.
Every criminal will be haunted by the deeds that they had done on this earth.
But, most of all, the ones that have sat in the pews of the churches and sang in the choir, been workers with I the church, and filled the pulpits, they will be in the deepest of darkness and torment.
For Christians knew that which was right and they turned their backs on Jesus.
VII. The Torment of Unsatisfied Lustful Cravings.
In Hell nothing will satisfy the craving and the wants that you have.
Luke 16:24 says, “24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.”
The craving for drugs and alcohol, pleasures of this world will not be filled.
You have heard of how alcoholics and drug addicts have killed to get a hit or how police officers have seen people get killed over a quarter.
Joel 1:5 says, “5 Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth.”
The sins that bind you here will haunt you there.
It truly is a time to wake up and smell the fear of the wrath of Almighty God breathing down the back of your neck.
Wake up and ask yourself am I right with God.
