Robbie Mitchell "Don't Go To Hell" powerful Comp.
Who will go to Hell?..??.. Instinctively we may think of the sinister kind of people... murderers, drug pushers, child molesters, etc. However, the Bible says: “...anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Rev. 20:15). This tells us that Hell will not only contain such evil people, but all those whose names are not written in the Book of Life.
According to the Bible, all human beings have a sinful nature that will condemn them to hell (Rom. 3:23, Rom. 6:23) unless they receive God’s gift of life. The Book of Life is the registry of Heaven, containing the names of all those who have received God’s gift. No one recorded in the book will go to Hell.
So how do we get our name written in the book of life? By placing faith in God’s Son, Jesus Christ, as our Lord and Savior! The scripture tells us that God sent Jesus into the world to take our sins upon Himself, as our substitute (2 Pet 2:24). He bore our sins, and died in our place -- so that all who would believe in Him and His sacrificial work would be saved. “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
At the moment that we sincerely repent of our sins, and place our faith in Christ to live for Him, our name is written in Heaven (Luke 10:20), and someday when our body dies, our soul will go to Heaven to be with the Lord for eternity (Col. 1:5).
How about you? Is your name written in Heaven? Are you living for God? Are you a backslider? If you would die tonight, are you sure that you would go to Heaven, instead of Hell?
