 Hell and Everlasting Punishment, Part 23: Woe

Hell and Everlasting Punishment
Part 23: Woe

God's Word pronournces a woe unto the wicked: "Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hand shall be given him" (Isaiah 3:11). Jesus said concerning Judas, "woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born." (Matthew 26:24). As someone has well said, "Better not to have been born at all than to not have been born twice." Someone else has said, "Born once, die twice; born twice, die once."

Catherine Dangell has wrtten a stirring poem entitled:


Hell, the prisonhouse of despair,
Here are some things that won't be there:
No flowers will bloom on the banks of Hell,
No beauties of nature we love so well;
No comforts of home, music and song,
No friendship of joy will be found in that throng;
No love to brighten the long, weary night,
No love nor peace, nor one ray of light;
No blood-washed soul with face beaming bright,
No loving smile in that region of night;
No mercy, no pity, pardon nor grace,
No water, Oh, God, what a terrible place:
The pangs of the lost no humans can tell,
Not one moment's ease- there is no rest in Hell.

Hell, the prisonhouse of despair,
Here are some things that will be there:
Fire and brimstone are there, we know,
For God in His Word hath told us so:
Memory, remorse, suffering and pain,
Weeping and wailing, but all in vain;
Blasphemer, swearer, hater of God,
Christ-rejecter while here on earth trod;
Murderer, gamblerm drunkard and liar,
Will have his part in the lake of fire;
The filthy, the vile, the cruel and mean,
What a horrible mob in Hell will be seen:
Yes, more than humans on earth can tell,
Are torments and woes of Eternal Hell.
