[b]Another stick to heat hell[/b](Thomas Watson, "The Mischief of Sin")See what vast treasures of wrath are laid up for unrepentantsinners. "Because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God's wrath, when His righteous judgment will be revealed." Romans 2:5As guilt increasesso does wrath. Every sin committed, is another stick to heat helland make it burn the hotter! It is a thing to be lamentedthat men should live in the world, only to increase their torments in hell. While they commit new sins, they are burdening themselves with more iron chains, which will be so heavy at last, that they will not be able to bear themor avoid them. Oh, sinner! Know that for every sin, you are only adding to your torment! Every dish Satan serves youwill only increase your fatal reckoning, and make your condemnation heavier. Every sin is a drop of oil upon hell's eternal furnace!

For sure we don't hear preaching like that anymore. It would probably mean prison.But the 'prison' that awaits the sinner is immeasurably worse than any man can invent.How sin grieves God enough to make Him angry and to stir up His wrath to punish us for eternity is beyond our thinking.But not beyond God's.God bless.
