Do you believe in hell? Do you believe in heaven? Do you believe in the bible?

Well if you do believe in heaven then you must believe in hell? But if you don’t believe in heaven and in hell then you can’t say you believe in the bible.

You may not want to bother yourself to continue reading this anymore if you don’t believe in either of the three.

There are only two destinations we have after our physical death, and that is whether your soul will go to heaven or to hell.

As almost everyone of us is certain that all things has their purpose of existence or even the things that happen in our lives have their purposes in us, same thing with why the hell exist. Technology exists to give us convenience, but at certain extent technology can be used to destroy mankind. Facebook exists for social networking so people can get in touch with others in different places of the world, hence facebook was created in an attempt to fill the emptiness of some. Games were created as an attempt to break the boring life of people, or some claim as just filler to the gap while waiting. All the inventions here on Earth have their purpose, and the inventor knows exactly what they were created to. The inventions itself doesn’t know their purpose, but it is its inventor or designer who precisely know why they were created. It’s the same thing with us, we were created by God and so God knows exactly why He created us. We can’t discover our purpose anywhere, but only through God who is our inventor that we can find our real purpose. Do you think you were created just to be born for nothing? Why you were born?!?! To be once a kid and learn how to play…then what? Then at the right age go to school…for what? So you can find a job after schooling…for what? So you can earn a living and survive your needs…for what? So you can die?!?!? My friends, you can find the answer by going back to your Creator… Jesus Christ.

And going back to our discussion, as everything exists for a purpose that even hell exists for a purpose. And that hell exists as a place for punishment on the day of God’s judgment for those who did not repent from their sins and did not accept Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of their life. Imagine the most painful event that happened in your life in the past, multiply that a thousand times or more, then that’s what it is in hell. See how the bible describe hell as stated below.

A place where men are tormented with fire and brimstone. -Revelation 21:8

A place where fire is not quenched but the worm don’t die. -Mark 9:44

A place of weeping and gnashing of teeth. -Matthew 25:30

A place of outer darkness. -Matthew 22:13

A place of torments. -Luke 16:23

A bottomless pit. -Revelation 9:2

A place of sorrows. -2 Samuel 22:6

A place of everlasting destruction. II Thessalonians 1:9

A place of no rest. -Revelation 14:11

It is ultimately a lake of fire. -Revelation 20:14-15

A place of hopeless of unsatisfied desires, a place of suffering. -Luke 16:24

My friends, think deeply, act immediately, respond purposefully, and make a move while it’s not yet late. You will never know when is the day, but God said it will surely happen at the time you least expect it. 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3 says “2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. “

The very reason why Jesus came is to save us, and He died for us in the cross because of His unconditional love for us. John 10:10 says He come so we may have life and we may have it more abundantly. My friends, this life and abundance of life is more than just a promise here on Earth…but a promise of our eternal life in heaven. Romans 10:9 says that if you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, then you will be saved.

God doesn’t want us to perish in hell… though God is a gentle God. He has given us the freewill and He will not force us to believe in Him for He respects us with our decisions. My friends, may we use our freewill to follow God’s will…act now while you still have the time.

My friends, the decision is yours…don’t tell me I didn’t warn you.
