for I have five brothers—in order that he may warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’ “But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.’ “But he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent!’ “But he said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.’”- Luke 16:28-31 NAS
In the Bible, there were one group of “creatures” that never doubted who Jesus was-DEMONS! Luke 4:41; Many were possessed by demons; and the demons came out at his command, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But because they knew he was the Messiah, he rebuked them and refused to let them speak. HELL will be full of believers- who believed too late!
Leader, The Bible teaches that God did not create hell as a judgment for humanity. God created hell for the punishment of the devil and his angels and not as a place for human beings to suffer. God has blessed us and cursed us with the same FREE WILL. John 14:6 is clear; Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. The TIME IS NOW to choose! Hell is eternity SANS GOD! Acknowledging Jesus was the WAY- POST last breath, is too late!
Conduit, there are many reasons why people choose not to believe in the RISEN JESUS. Some people live in DENIAL, they don’t think they need a savior. They consider themselves to be “basically good” – but are ignorant to the fact; they cannot come to God on their own terms! Some fear social rejection or persecution, they don’t want to be ridiculed. Some people love what the present world has to offer, but most are simply resisting the Holy Spirit’s attempts to draw them to faith in Christ. REPENT, for the KINGDOM OF GOD is at hand! For ONE DAY SOON- every KNEE will BOW and every TONGUE will confess that JESUS IS LORD! CHOOSE today, because a GIFT that is commanded is NO GIFT AT ALL! Receive the Gift!! Amen!
