Only God could make Hell. Nothing or no one could imagine agony beyond comprehension, loneliness without remedy, desperation inconceivable, or life without God He is all that we have ever known!! The galling existence without a body, that of the alien sinner, will not compare with the intensity inherently designed in the spiritual body of the saint. Typical of God, to one a blessing, to the other a curse.
I have been with burn victims and witnessed the writhing anguish, the contortions that cannot be read in their faces, and have seen their inability to gain that one moment of sweet, peaceable sleep so needed to heal. I have seen pictured something far worse from the Vietnam War when the Communist skinned alive a black officer and hung on a tree. The writhing cries of anguish accompanied with the incessant begging from this soldier to “take him out of his misery” caused the blood to boil in all who had to hear these plaintiff cries for mercy. Fortunately for this soldier, a bullet could end his misery on this side of life, but what of the uncalculated misery on the other side?? I can tell you the relief of all those who witnessed this tragic, inhumane spectacle but none thought of this as the precursor to something far worse!! I am not trying to be melodramatic, I am trying to get you to face what is coming for the disobedient and at the same time shock you into reality about that which will be far, far worse—the estate of the disobedient child!! “It would have been (far) better not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it and turned from the holy commandment delivered unto them”. 2 Peter 2:21 If “eye has not seen and ear has not heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man what God has in store for they who love Him” 1 Corinthians 2:9, what will be the final estate of the unredeemed?? By unredeemed I mean those who cannot, ever, be redeemed, for they have “trampled under foot the Son of God, and have counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith they were sanctified, an unholy thing, and done despite to the law of grace”? Hebrews 10:29 I hate to tell you what the beginning of this verse says!! “Of how much sorer punishment suppose ye, shall they be thought worthy”! The worst thing I know can happen from studying God’s word is for one who has become a child of God to turn back to that from which they had come!! “Vengeance belongs unto Me, I will recompense, says the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge His people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God!! Hebrews 10:31 “God is not mocked, whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap. For he that sows to his flesh (lives only to GAIN comfort and satisfy his physical life, here) shall of the flesh reap corruption (the payment for living for this world, it is empty, useless in the LONG PART OF LIFE); BUT he that sows to the Spirit (lives to GAIN life with God) shall of the Spirit (the payment rendered living for God) reap life everlasting” Galatians 6:7-8 Imagine a God so-o possessed with love being as capable of being possessed with vengeance!! God will not be mocked (made light of, made fun of, become the blunt end of OUR joke). Child of God, this is talking about YOU, you are already blood-bought, you will not make light of the price God paid to save your soul, and there is one thing about being a child of God—you cannot EVER become un-born!!!
We are “in the army of God”, there is no a-w-o-l (away without leave (permission), we cannot cry “foul” (that is, someone took advantage of us), we have committed to a Being that has gone so far over-board to make it better for us, He will go just that far to requite us for mocking His “gift”. “Make your calling and election SURE”!!
