Looking Over the Edge of the Cliff Into Hell

William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army, once told the young people studying to be officers in his ranks that he wished he could take them to the edge of hell and let them look in.

Do you believe in hell?

I do.

Even if you do, we may have differing opinions of how we get there.

Most people think it is by doing good works or not doing bad works.

That’s not what the Bible says.

The Bible teaches a gospel of grace. God is holy, we are not. We need a Mediator, a Redeemer, a Savior. That’s why Jesus came. To pay the penalty of our sin.

We all sin. Falling short. Running our own lives when we owe our lives to the Almighty. We ignore Him, or rebel against Him, or refuse to believe in Him.

One day, we will see that God is real and His judgment is real.

Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye wrote the New York Times Best sell series titled, “Left Behind.” It describes a time when Christians disappear and a wicked man takes over promising peace–eventually he destroys everything good and sets the world at war.


There is something worse.

God’s judgment.

Scripture says He will come as a thief in the night. All will be saying peace, peace, and then Christ will appear.

But there’s still time.

Here are two Scriptures I read this morning in my study written by Beth Moore:

The Lord is patient, “not wanting any to perish but all to come to repentance” (2 Pet. 3:9).

Romans 2:4 states, “Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance.”

I was going to write a funny blog today, but thought I’d better share with you something that has eternal value.

Why? Because I love you and don’t want to look over that cliff and find you there.

There is time. God is patient. Don’t let your time run out.

How about something funny next week?

If we are still here.
