There Is A Place Called Hell
If they do not hear Moses and the prophets,
neither will they be persuaded, though one rise from the dead.
The mention of Hell elicits many different reactions. Some people react with concern and are moved to share the Saviour, Jesus, with the lost. Others react with fear and come to Jesus seeking salvation for their own souls. Still others react with hate and revulsion and say that it is not a proper topic for conversation. Some would even seek to deny the existence of Hell. Yet God and Jesus declare Hell to be a very real place. Hell is mentioned 162 times in the New Testament, 70 come from the Lord Himself.
We may not like to think about it, but Hell is a reality. If the teachings in the Bible concerning Hell are a myth, then we have no need of salvation, or the Bible, the Church or a preacher. If there is no Hell, then there is no Heaven, and there is no Saviour, because if there is no Hell, Christ lied to us, and He has disqualified Himself.
Read today's Bible passages; this story is not a parable! The rich man who is spoken of by Jesus in this passage is still in Hell, and untold millions more have joined him there since.
If you have never been saved, let me speak to you as clearly as I can for just a moment. Please do not join the rich man in Hell. God loves you, and He sent His Son Jesus to die for you on the cross. Jesus Christ died for you, and He loves you today just like you are. I have no doubt that He is calling you to come to Him. If you come to Him, He will save you and you will miss Hell. Do not let Satan play you for a fool - Come to Christ while there is time!
Great God, thank You for the Lord Jesus and for saving me from Hell. I commit myself today to telling the lost about Christ. In His name, I pray. Amen.
