DOES HELL EXIST?
Revelation 20:11-15, "And I saw a great white throne and the one sitting on it. The earth and sky fled from his presence, but they found no place to hide. I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God's throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books. The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds. Then death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This lake of fire is the second death. And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire."
Many people, including professing Christians, do not believe in the judgment of God that is to come. They do not believe in the lake of fire, which is another word for hell. The Bible clearly states that anyone who is not found recorded in the Book of Life will be thrown into the lake of fire. So, what is the Book of Life? It is the book where all the names of the genuine believers of our Lord Jesus Christ are listed. Jesus said these words to His disciples after they successfully went and preached the gospel and healed the sick, "Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven" (Luke 10:20).
Let us not be deceived by the belief and teaching of those who do not believe in the lake of fire or hell. People can say anything about hell, but let us believe in what the Bible says. There will be a day when every person in this world will stand before God and give an account of what they have done. But for us who genuinely believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, our name is already written in the Book of Life, and we will enter into His heavenly kingdom and be with our God forever and for eternity.
Ask yourself these questions: What does the Bible say about the Book of Life? What does the Bible say about the lake of fire? Do I believe that the lake of fire or hell exists?
Write down all the worries you are facing today and lift them up to God.
Father in Heaven, thank you that my name is written in the Book of Life. Thank you for saving me through my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that those who are not written in the Book of Life will believe in the Lord Jesus Christ so that they may be saved from going to the lake of fire. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
