God is giving a greater revelation of heaven and hell to help us in pursuit of Him


I would be a horrible pastor and not very loving to not teach about the worst place to be for eternity and how to avoid it.


Some of you don’t need this

Jude 23 NKJV but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire


Hell should be presented to someone like a parent would tell their child about not getting to close to the edge of the cliff.


It does not glorify God at all to send even the worst person ever to hell.


Hell is a place absent of God and His attributes

VIDEO: 1 Bill Wiese tells of hell


Mark 9:43 NAS If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life crippled, than, having your two hands, to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire

Matthew 25:41 NAS Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels

Matthew 10:28 NAS do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Revelation 20:14-15 KJV 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Would you play Russian roulette for your life?

Many play Russian roulette for their eternity.

Nobody just chooses to go to hell.

Here are my top three dangers:

1.       Laxity or apathy

2.       Ignorance

3.       Willful sin.

Laxity/apathy – Not as many are going in the rapture as think they are


How would our choices change if we weighed each of them against how it will affect us concerning heaven and hell

Revelation 20:11-15 NAS 11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 21:1-7 NAS 1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, 4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away." 5 And He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." And He said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true." 6 Then He said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. 7 "He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.
