Is Hell A Real Place?
Many people just live for each day. They don’t think about why they were born or what they are here for. After a lifetime on earth, they pass away as their bodies give way and many say that is the end of it. Does life end at death?
No, life does not end at death. If you want to know the truth about living you have to know God. John 17:17 tells us that God’s Word (the Bible) is truth. Although, many proclaim to know some form of truth about life or living, the only pure truth is God and you can only discover His truth by knowing His Word. If you want to know God, you’ve got to read the Bible.
What Happens When You Die?
When you die, you are not actually dying. It is just your physical body that is dying. Hebrews 9:27 tells us it is death then judgment. You are a three part being (more on that here) so your spirit and soul continue on.
When your body dies, your spirit and soul (that’s the real you or your inner man as the Bible says) departs your body. You go before God and are judged. In 2 Corinthians 5:10, we are told that we all go before the judgment seat of God. Those who have accepted, know, and walk with Jesus receive eternal life and are united with God for eternity. Those who have rejected Jesus are condemned to eternal damnation in hell.
Is Hell Real?
Hell is a real place. It is in the center of the earth. This is why it is fiery and stinking of sulfur. Geologists tell us the earth is made up of the inner core, the outer core, the mantle and then the earth’s crust. Depending on where you are on the earth, the thickness of the earth’s crust varies but typically i,s believe to be 40 km deep. The earth’s crust is really all we see as the deeper you into the earth, the more pressure there is. You body could not sustain going to the earths core as you would burn up. People that don’t receive Jesus in life, go to hell in death. Hell is a physical place but filled with lost spirits (or some same ‘souls’). These people range from liars, to sexual predators, rapists, murders, homosexuals, and other people who did evil on the earth while they were living in their physical bodies. There will be no one who loves and follows God in hell. Getting to heaven is only achieved by starting a relationship with God by accepting Jesus. Romans 10:9 shows us how simple it is to know God.
Hell was designed for satan and the demons who mounted a rebellion against God. They are currently on the earth, but have access to go between the earth and hell below. The enemy’s time is limited. We are told that while the enemy has freedom, the forces of hell want to kill people, steal from them, and destroy whatever they can (John 10:10). If you feel under attack, it is likely demonic. You can overcome it by the power and blood of Jesus.
Hell is a real place. Is was designed for the demonic spirits that rebelled against God, but as God is perfect, He cannot accept people who have not been made right by receiving Jesus. Do not go there! The most important question of your life is right here. Do you know Jesus? If you know Jesus, there is something you can do to know God deeper. Get His power working in your life daily. Do you have God’s power in your daily life?
