When I think about what the Bible says about going to hell, I don’t want anyone to spend eternity where there is wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Matthew 13:47-50 Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind, which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad Away. so shall it be at the end of the world, the Angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire, there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
I want people to hear the truth and be with me in heaven where there will be no more death or sorrow
Revelations 21:4 and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away.
John 14:2 in my father’s house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
We haven’t been given this truth just to barely make it from day to day but we have been given the Holy Ghost to live an overcoming life so we can be witnesses to others of God’s love, joy, peace, mercy, goodness, holiness, and His power to live an overcoming life.
Acts 1:8 but ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you, and ye shall be Witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the Earth.
The Lord has given us the opportunity to minister to a lost and dying world while we do something we love. I pray the Lord leads and guides us by His Spirit to minister to the lost so they will have the opportunity to be in heaven with us.
Matthew 9:35-38 and Jesus went about all the cities and Villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no Shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, the Harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few, pray ye therefore the lord of the Harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his Harvest.
A couple years ago at an Azusa StreetRiders meet and greet at the restaurant we were fellowshipping on a Friday night, a young man was talking about wanting the Holy Ghost. The few of us that were at the table talking with him felt the quickening of the Holy Ghost and told him if he wanted to receive the Holy Ghost to stand up and start worshipping and he could receive it right then. God filled that young man with the Holy Ghost right there in the restaurant. It is my desire for God to be able to speak to me when I am out in the public and direct me to pray for anyone I come in contact with as he leads and guides me.
My prayer is Lord give us a burden for the lost and a vision of Heaven and Hell. Let the vision take us to our knees in prayer, show us how to love like you love and reach out to every soul that crosses our path. Remind us that you have given each of us a personal testimony to minister to others that will lead them to you in Jesus name Amen.
