Lately, it seems many voices have arisen trying to discredit, distort, and pervert the truth contained in God's Word about a place called "HELL." Don't you find it strange that suddenly so many voices are coming out with their argument against the Bible concerning this subject? These "instructors" seem convinced that their personal belief is correct in the face of truth that is found in the Bible. Even though I have heard men argue the nonexistence of HELL, I've never heard any of them say that they have gone there.
So today, the Lord told me to share this excerpt from HIS WORD that directly quotes a man who not only went to hell, but still remains there today. This story that Jesus shared with the people of His day was not a parable, but was taken from a real account of people who had real names. Listen very closely to a man who once enjoyed the best of this world's pleasures, but now lives in torment. Take note that he begs Abraham to warn his other brothers about this place called "HELL."
NOTE: The Bible says that the wicked are forgotten, but the righteous are remembered. The rich man's name isn't used in this true account, but Lazarus, the beggar, is remembered.
Luke 16 : 19 - 31, "There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. "Then 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.' But Abraham said, 'Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.' "Then he said, 'I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father's house, for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.' Abraham said to him, 'They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.' And he said, 'No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.' But he said to him, 'If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.'" NKJV
Friends Don't Let Friends Go to HELL!
