Fire and Brimstone – Harsh Truths

Fire and Brimstone – Harsh Truths

In Isaiah, we have been reading about the destruction of people who turned away from God and it made one thing very clear throughout several chapters; it’s going to be brutal. Isaiah 15:

The Lord has broken the rod of the wicked,
    the scepter of the rulers,
which in anger struck down peoples
    with unceasing blows,
and in fury subdued nations
    with relentless aggression.

I’m someone who likes for someone to tell me like it is. Please don’t sugar coat it, please just tell me the news.  Well here is the undeniable truth.  In the end, Jesus is coming back, and if you do not believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, and that he rose again on the 3rd day, and that it is only through him that you have salvation…..then you will not be going to heaven, you will be in hell.  

For many who read this, you’re likely already a Christian.  However, if you are dabbling with the idea, belief in God is a risk-free proposition.  You don’t believe, you get to go to hell.  You do believe you will be going to heaven.  For those who doubt it (read faith of a mustard seed post), consider the facts.  There are plenty of books that try to prove one side or another but let’s get one simple fact known on both sides.  We know that Jesus lived, we know there were countless witnesses to these miracles.  We know that the Old Testament and the information in it prophesied the coming of Jesus.  We know it was fulfilled based on these eye witness accounts.  With a case like this, it would hold in court due to consistency and number of witnesses alone. 

So now that we know that would you like to believe in the facts?  What’s the risk in putting your faith in something we know to be backed up?  The risk is eternity in hell.  There is endless fire and misery.  As a brother in Christ, I ask that you do not wait around to accept Jesus, but that you seek him.  I truly believe in my heart that if you seek Jesus, you will find an answer that pleases you and you will find yourself at the gates of heaven and allowed entry. I am praying for your acceptance of salvation.

God Bless.
