The Gateway to Hell - Millennium Bible Study Part 9

Abigail and Dolley readers we just don't hear about Hell much anymore at least not from a Biblical perspective.  Hollywood produces tons of demonic and satanic "epic battle" films.  A recent example is the Seventh Son, released in February 2015.  It is about a portal opening and evil coming out in at the red moon.  We've been inundated with movies that give a glimpse of things to come, after all, when the world goes crazy, people will remember the plots they saw in movies and readily accept the new reality.  From Aliens, to Zombies, to Shape Shifters, to Super Humans, to the Apocalypse the world has been fed a steady diet of Hell on Earth.  There is coming a time, when there will indeed be Hell on Earth and people will readily receive the lies.

Hell is a real place, Jesus told the story of the rich man and Lazarus which is the most straight forward presentation of Hell in the Scriptures.  The basics of Hell are thus:  Prior to the cross, there was a Paradise section of Sheol where the righteous abide until Christ, after His death, went and got the Old Testament Saints and took them to Heaven leaving the Paradise section empty.  There is a torment section of Sheol (Hades/Hell) where the unrighteous and the wicked remain today.  Every unbeliever that has ever died  has consigned themselves to this place of fire, sulfur, and eternal damnation. At the end of the Millennium, at the Great White Throne Judgement, Hades will give up its dead and all will face the final judgement.  Those not found in the Lamb's book of life will be cast forever into the Lake of Fire.

During the Millennium, there will be a literal gateway to Hell where men will look upon those who have transgressed against the Lord.  Isaiah 66:22-24 "For just as the new heavens and the new earth Which I make will endure before Me," declares the LORD, "So your offspring and your name will endure. And it shall be from new moon to new moon And from sabbath to sabbath, All mankind will come to bow down before Me," says the LORD. "Then they will go forth and look On the corpses of the men Who have transgressed against Me. For their worm will not die And their fire will not be quenched; And they will be an abhorrence to all mankind."

You do not have to go there, you can repent of your sins and accept Christ today.  I beg of you, do not send yourself to this terrible place!
