Listen, all of you who are living far from God, you are living without knowing what will happen to you when you breath your last, that is, when you die. For you don’t know that when you breath your last, hell will open its mouth and swallow you up.
Hell is a terrible and frightening place in the heart of the earth, where an unfanned fire is burning and where the souls of sinners are enveloped by the flames of that fire and where they are continually crying, weeping and gnashing their teeth because of the great torments they suffer in that place. That’s what the Word of God teaches in various ways and has been confirmed also by some people whom God allowed to see hell.
Maybe you are one of those people who will say to me: ‘What are you saying? Once dead, we are really dead. With death everything is finished!’ You are greatly mistaken, you are deceiving yourself. You have a soul within your body and that soul is immortal and after death it will continue to live in hell.
Maybe you are one of those people who think that after death people go to a place of purification where they must discharge the debts of temporal punishment for their sins, and after that they will be allowed to enter heaven. You, too, are deceiving yourself. Your sins can be forgiven only during this life; if you die in your sins you will have no chance to be purified from your sins in the hereafter, for you will be lost forever!
But maybe you are among those people who think that after death the soul of man reincarnates into the body of an animal or into the body of another human being in order to expiate his sins. Even in this case you are deceiving yourself. Reincarnation is a lie.
Then you will say: ‘What evil did I do in order to deserve to go to that terrible place of torment in the afterlife?’ You have done evil in the eyes of God, for the Word of God says that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, there is none righteous, all are gone out of the way, the poison of asps is under their lips, and their feet are swift to shed blood. Therefore condemnation is upon you also, you are a sinner, you are lost and upon you is the wrath of God, the God you don’t know who he is filled with indignation against all those who delight in doing evil. If you suddenly died in this condition, you certainly would go to hell; your sins bear witness of your perversion and rebellion toward God, who can do nothing but send you to hell.
But hear also these things: there is a way to escape this terrible end, there is a way to escape this infamous destiny awaiting all sinners. If you want to escape the fire of hell you must repent of your sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God sent by God into this world to save the world. What did He do to save the world? He died on the cross for our sins and rose again for our justification. For you must understand that Jesus Christ, after He lived a blameless and sinless life and did much good to the people, was put to death. He was crucified and thus He was numbered with the transgressors. However, those who unjustly condemned Him to death and pierced Him, did not know this, that His death was a propitiatory death decreed by God in order to forgive our sins. So Jesus died, and was buried. But on the third day God raised Him from the dead and caused Him to be seen by witnesses whom God had already chosen.
That’s good news, isn’t it? For you can receive remission of your sins, the blotting out of your debts, just through faith in Jesus Christ. Not by good works, or sacrifices, for Jesus Christ has already done everything by shedding His blood, by giving His life for you also.
I implore you on Christ’s behalf: Accept immediately this Good News. Do not hesitate, tomorrow, even in a few moments, it could be too late, for as I told you, you could suddenly die with the wrath of God upon you and you would go to hell.
Therefore, now, humble yourself before God, confess your sins to Him and believe in His Son Jesus Christ. You will immediately be washed from your sins in His own blood, you will become a new creature for you will be spiritually born again, and your life will be completely different from the meaningless life you have lived until now serving sin. You will begin to live a life which is worth living and you will be heading for Paradise, which is a heavenly place where the souls of the redeemed go after death.
