Hell and How Not To Get There

When God said he is a jealous God he didn’t mean he is weeping tears like an offended weak lover. I have read some say that God is weeping over America. I think not. Never in the Bible does the Lord weep over anything. Or anyone. Except once when He wept over Jerusalem when he saw their destruction coming. He tolerates no worship of anything only of himself.

In 70 AD just as Jesus said Jerusalem was laid waste. Their temple destroyed and a multitude of Jews died. Those who managed to escape were scattered among the nations to wander a suffering rejected people even as God said would happen to them for all their sins.

I understand God to be a consuming fire. A God that without mercy can decimate a nation in an instant like he did to Nineveh. They did repent at Jonah’s preaching. But seventy years later he did destroy them. I see God as one who does not, will not tolerate disobedience. He is God and does not appreciate anyone or anything trying to exalt themselves when he is the only exalted one.

I got a clear clue of the nature of God when he cast from heaven a beautiful angel who said I will be like the Most High. God told him You will be brought down to the sides of the pit. No mercy no chance no constitutional rights no nothing. Angel becomes the devil..forever.  End of story.

God did not redeem that disobedient angel. The Canaanites had over 400 years to repent. they did not and he utterly destroyed them. One man reached out to keep the ark of the covenant from tipping and God struck him dead. Ananias and Sapphira were stuck dead  for lying to the Holy Spirit. Herod was struck dead for not giving God glory and the worms ate him up. Then the next verse says But the word of God grew and multiplied.

We humans have a chance and only because of Christ. Without Christ it is hell. God will do it. There are some people who are actually (scary) going to hear Jesus say to them, Depart from me I never knew you. They will have to depart. Depart to where? To where the worm dies not and the fire is not quenched. To the outer darkness.

Read about him through the Bible beginning at Genesis to Malachi. He is there and then he is not there. As you study God and his dealings with Israel.  He is doing great miracles. Then things change and he is not doing it as before.  Things dramatically change. Israel bows down to every false god and commits harlotry under every green tree.

God got tired of it. Next scene: Israel is  punished rebuked and scattered among the nations. And the Old Testament ends with God saying… Lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

How much proof do humans need that God does not like disobedience. If one sins they are his enemy make no mistake. How do you feel when your child disobeys you? Say they did continually while making fun of you. You would not look at their disobedience and mockery and say how cute they are. Nor would you weep over them. You will set them in order or you are not a fit parent. How much more God?

Yet this is what many do to God today. Mock him not realizing he is giving them time to repent. He said his Spirit will not always strive with man. And he prefers mercy to judgment.

God is love. However what many do not realize is this: he is also a God of judgment. God cuts no slack to anyone who mocks him. His only remedy is Christ. Reject His Son and you are done.

I read a  true story of a man whose young daughter died. The father got angry at God. He left church one day a bitter and angry man. As he passed close to a tree lightning struck the tree.  The angry father of the dead child screamed up at God.. Do it again God!!!

The years moved forward until thirty years to the day had passed since God  struck that tree with lightning. .It so happened that this man was passing that same tree by that church one day. Suddenly out of the sky came lightning and struck it again. God did not apologize to the man. But the man finally surrendered to God.

It is best to surrender and go along peacefully One preacher said that God does not negotiate with us because we have nothing to negotiate with.  We have nothing to bring to the table.

Humble yourselves and repent. Be sorry for your sins and get Jesus in you. Then when he sees the Blood he will do for you as he did for ancient Israel when the death angel passed through Egypt killing all the firstborn..he will Pass over you.

Apply the Blood of Jesus to the doorpost of your heart and soul to your life and be saved from what is coming on the earth.
