 What if it's true? Kim Josephson

What if it's true?

What if there really is a hell? (Matt10:28)
What if that place is a place of eternal torment? (Rev14:10,11)
What if the fires of that place are not figurative but are literal flames (Luke 16:24) that actually burn and torture everyone in them? (Matt 13:41,42)

What if the smoke of those torments goes up eternally? (Rev 14:10,11)

What if it's a place of eternal darkness? (Matt 25:30)

What if you fall forever and ever in a bottomless
pit? (Rev 9:2)

What if as you are totally cut off from God
(Matt 7:23) you are totally cut off from every other human form?

What if you are lost forever, burning in physical torment but also burning in lusts that will never be satisfied? (Luke 16:24)

What if the day comes when the Son of God takes His
place on a great white throne and sits in judgement on every individual that has ever lived? (Rev 20:11, Eccl 12:14)

What if He separates the sheep from the goats? (Matt 25:32)

His friends on the right and the hypocrites on the left? (Matt 25:33)

What if He actually condemns all those on His left to the Hell fire prepared for the devil and the fallen angels who dared to defy God? (Matt 25:41)

What if this place is a place where the only sound you hear is weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth? (Matt 13:50)

What if there is nothing that can stop the eternal roar of the screams?What if it really is everlasting fire? (Mark 9:45)

What if that fact alone is the greatest torment of all?

What if it's true that your memory will be keener than at any time on this earth? (Luke 16:25)

What if for time and eternity you remember every time the Holy Spirit begged you to repent
(Rev 3:20) and you loathe yourself for rejecting Him?

What if in this place you realize that you were ashamed to say yes to God because you were afraid of what your friends would think? (Matt 10:33)

What do you think you will think of those friends then? While you grieved away the Spirit of God
(Gen 6:3) to appease your pride, how will you stop the hellish ringing in your ears that cries "You fool - you fool - you fool." You won't be remembering the good times you had in sin. No sir, part of your hell will be remembering how you couldn't be bothered
with Jesus, how you had no time for God on earth (Prov 1:24) but now you have time. You have eternity and now when God

won't hear - (Prov 1:28) all you do is
pray - “Oh God - Oh God - Oh God
have mercy.” But He doesn't hear and
he won't have mercy? (Prov 1:26) Your
every thought will be on how you
rejected the mercy of God. (Rom 2:4-6)
Your every remembrance will be of
those who wept over your soul - that
mother who prayed for you - that
friend, that son, that daughter who
begged you to repent and surrender
to Christ but you would not! You'll
remember every detour that God
put up on your road to hell and
how you kept on running through
the roadblocks to your own
destruction. You'll remember
laughing with your friends at the
things of God (Prov 14:9) and then
you'll curse yourself and them
because of what has happened to

You'll remember how you
drank what you pleased - when
you pleased but now you'll beg for
just one drop of water to quench
your burning tongue (Luke 16:24)
but you'll never know a moments
reprieve. Every blasphemous utterance
that ever came out of your
mouth will haunt you now - those
jokes about seeing all your friends in
hell and having a big party will make
you loathe yourself and your friends
for the sheer stupidity of it. (Prov 14:9)
There will be no music - no rock
and roll - no friends - no party -
only weeping, wailing and gnashing
of teeth.

What if it's true? What if now
you are in a place that God has
ordained for the refuse of His universe?
(Matt 13:41) What if you're there
and you thought you'd be in heaven?
(Matt 7:21) What if you allowed some
preacher to soft pedal God's truths
(Jer 6:14) and somehow you didn't take
care of your own salvation? (Phil 2:12)
What if some denomination taught
you that if you just went to church
and took communion you'd be OK?
(Luke 13:25-28) What if you bought
into the humanistic lie that said "I'm
OK and you're OK" when really neither
one of us was OK (Ps 14:3) and
what we both desperately needed was
a Savior? (Rom 3:23)

What if you simply
didn't believe what Jesus said (Matt
7:21) and you actually thought that
you could get to heaven by being
"good" or just some other way than
what He said? Do you think it will
make the flames cooler?

What if it’s true? What if
Jesus really meant it when He said
"Not everyone who sayeth unto me
Lord Lord shall enter into the kingdom
of heaven, but he that doeth the
will of my Father"? (Matt 7:21) What if
it's not a matter of a prayer that
accepts "Jesus Christ as your personal
savior" but it actually requires a
bowing of your knee to Jesus Christ
as your Lord?

What if you really have
to take up your cross and follow
Him? (Luke 14:27) What if you have to
repent of your sins (Luke 13:3) and follow
Jesus (Mark 8:34) with your whole
heart, mind, soul and strength? (Mark
12:30) What if you must be born again
by the Spirit of God? (John 3:7) What
if you actually have to abdicate the
throne of your heart and give the
kingship of your life to Jesus? (Luke
6:46) What if you can’t be ashamed of
Jesus and make heaven your eternal
home? (Matt 10:33)

Well, the fact is that's the
way it is. Many are deceived
because in our generation preachers
have twisted the scriptures to
accommodate their denominational
doctrines. Today preachers
preach what people want to hear.
(2 Tim 4:3) But that's not what Jesus
did. He is the one who told us
about an eternal fiery hell and He
also told us how to avoid it. It
would seem to me that nothing
would be more important than
missing such a place and taking as
many as we can out of it too! In fact
such truth should rally the Church
into action as never before.

We should herald the truth unceasingly
and pray for a mighty move of the
Spirit to turn men's hearts from sin
and to the Savior. But instead, I'm
afraid these truths have been so long
neglected and so watered down that
many have been deceived and will be
eternally damned because they
believed not what Jesus actually said
but what somebody said He said. (Jer
Is Jesus Christ your Lord?

Have you surrendered your life to

Are you striving against sin and
saying no to your will when it conflicts with the Word of God? Are you saying yes to God and no to
your lusts, not only with your
mouth but with your actions?

Have you turned from sin?

Are you following Jesus? If not, then
in Jesus' name don't pretend to
think you're saved. (1 Cor 6:9,10) If
you are your own Lord - your own
King - your own Boss, then Jesus
is not your Lord nor your Savior
and you will be damned. (Luke 6:46)
Let no man deceive you.

If you do not repent and surrender to Jesus
you will split hell wide open. In
Jesus' name repent and surrender
now. Put down this letter and beg
for the mercy of God this instant.
Now, you say you've made
Jesus your Master - then act like it.
(1 John 2:6) You know that everything
I've written in this letter is
the truth, so stop messing around
and begin to do the job Christ gave
us to do. Reach the unreached. Tell
the untold. Don't send money to
get the job done. Do your job!!!
Warn the wicked of the wrath to
come. (Matt 3:7) Jesus said go and
tell every creature. (Mark 16:15) So
YOU go and YOU tell.

Simple isn't it - no excuses - Just do it!
