It is important to understand that people will go to Hell because they have chosen that path, and therefore in this article, I want to share with you three mistakes that send people to Hell.
What are the things that send people to Hell? Is it because they do not have any good deeds, or righteousness, to keep the laws of God?
I believe the cry of the people from Hell is, please don’t come here, and the cry of a Bible-believing preacher is, please don’t go to Hell.
GOD DOES NOT SEND ANYONE TO HELL
God NEVER sends anyone to hell. We choose to go there. The grace of God which brings salvation is available to all people of all races of all nations (Titus 2:11). God is NO respecter of persons (Romans 2:11). “Whosoever” will may come.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” –Romans 1:13
ANYONE CAN BE SAVED, BUT NOT ALL WILL BE SAVED
Anyone can be saved. Anyone can have their sins forgiven and go to heaven. If we will simply ask Jesus Christ to forgive us of our sins (believing that He is the Saviour Who died upon the cross to pay for our sins), then we can be saved. It is simple to be saved.
Unfortunately, most people don’t believe in a literal hell that burns with fire and brimstone. Even many professed religious ministers dent the existence of such a place of torment.
However, the Word of God stands firm that there is a literal place called hell where Christ-rejecters will burn for all eternity.
YOUR NAME IS NOT IN THE LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” -Revelation 20:15
Is your name written in the Lamb’s book of life? The Lamb is Jesus Christ Who gave Himself, as a living Sacrifice, to take away our sins. Jesus paid a debt that He did not owe because we owed a debt that we could not pay.
Jesus has paid the price in full. All we need to do is to freely accept God’s gift of forgiveness, by having faith in Christ alone. I beg you … please do not go to hell.
You certainly do not need to. Hell was created for the devil and his demons, not for humanity. Nevertheless, God has revealed to mankind that all sinners, who die in their sins, will go straight to Hell for eternity to suffer and pay for those sins.
YOU DIED IN YOUR SINS WITHOUT TRUSTING THE FINISHED WORK OF CHRIST FOR YOUR SINS
“I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.” -John 8:24
The only people who will die in their sins are the people who rejected the full payment of Christ for their sins to be forgiven. If your sins are not being paid for by Christ, then you would have to pay for them yourself.
But I have chosen what Christ did as the only way for me to be saved. Salvation is free gift of God, and it is only through the finished work of Christ.
Looking at these verses in the Bible, you can understand clearly what sends people to Hell, and then you will be able to make the wise decision not to go to Hell. Please don’t go to Hell.
