Is there a Heaven? Is There a Hell?
ABC's of Salvation
Jesus spoke about
hell just as much as he did heaven and warned about the consequences of ending up there.
In Luke 16:19-31 Jesus tells us of a man in the torments of hell. The
man was aware of his
surroundings, he was thirsty, he realized he had a family on earth and
wanted to warn them about the place he was in.
The Bible says hell was not
prepared for man but for the devil ( Matthew 25:41 ), but because of his
sinful condition, this fate awaits man as well. The Bible says that it is
not Gods will that any should perish but that all should come to
repentance ( 2 Peter 3:9 ). God has provided a way of salvation for man
and it is through his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
22. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the

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
25. But Abraham
said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus
evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26. And beside all
this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which
would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that
would come from thence.
27. Then he said, I
pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's
28. For I have
five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into
place of torment.
29. Abraham saith
unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
30. And he said,
Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will
31. And he said
unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be
persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
Matthew 25: 41.
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye
cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
2 Peter 3:9 The
Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but
is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish but
that all should come to repentance.
PSALMS 9:17 The
wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.

presence of the
Lord, and from the glory of his power.
MATTHEW 8:12 But
the children of the kingdom shall be cast into outer darkness;
there shall be
weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The Son of Man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather
out of his
kingdom all things that offend, and them that do iniquity; and shall cast
them into a
furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth (Matthew
25:41 Jude 1:7,
and Revelations 20 ).

these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the

The occupants of
hell will be Satan, the antichrist, the false prophet, fallen angels, and
unsaved people. (
Revelations 20:10, 19:20, 20:15, and 2 Peter 2:4 ).
Each of us has
a choice to make; what will be your choice?
Jesus Christ came to this earth to save us from eternal damnation in a
fiery Hell. He died for our sins, was buried and rose again on the
The blood of Jesus
Christ is the payment for sin BUT it is not automatically applied to the
human race. It is applied only to those who hear the Good News of Jesus
and then turn to Him in repentance.
