How Will They Hear If We Do Not Tell Them?

I Love you this much He said-as He stretched Out His Arms & Died

PAID IN FULL

On the Day of Judgment no one will be a “victim”, for God in His Wondrous Mercy and His Awesome Grace has done everything but live our individual lives for us so that we could , if we so choose to, receive forgiveness of sins and salvation of our souls. In fact He loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son that none of us need to perish but have everlasting life with Him.( John 3:16)

He spoke unto this generation in times past through the holy men of God whose prophecies are recorded in the Holy Bible. Warnings about events that have and will assuredly continue to come to pass,. Each and every day many clearly see the amazing Word of Almighty God come to life in this, our appointed time. We see these all over the world and all lining up for it‘s conclusion in the Holy Land of Israel. These things are of no surprise to the Christian-“It is written and so shall it ever be.”


The scripture that says “God would have that none be lost” became clearer as He in these final times has permitted justified through faith in Christ men and women to see and experience the beauty of heaven. Many returning having seen a Mother or a friend who were an influence in their lives for Christ Jesus. Don Piper the minister who was pronounced dead on the scene after being run over by an 18-wheeler. He was dead for 90 Minutes and you can find his testimony on youtube. He also authored a book by the name of "90 Minutes in Heaven" and another entitled "Heaven Is Real"

Through his and other testimonies, people have returned by God’s grace to testify that Jesus has done what He promised us He would. These blessed souls at times struggle as they attempt to describe the indescribable beauty God has for us there. The Mansions Jesus spoke of to His Disciples too! Stories which can easily cause one to yearn to escape the evil that has become so prevalent in our secular society,and leave this frail tent of flesh behind , even as we longingly await for the Lord to beckon us to go Home to be with Him. These "experiences" are biblical. I refer to the story Jesus told of the rich man and Lazarus:
Luke 16:20-31.

"There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine
linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus,
which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:

For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither
will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead."



So you see there is also another reality that Jesus Himself spoke more of than any other topic in the New Testament. Hell. People have also testified of this being a physical and literal place. Those who had died having never repented of their sins and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. These experienced the visual and experiential horrors of souls being tormented and smelling the sickeningly acrid stench of burning flesh in hell.

They testify of screams being so horrible and the agony contained with them as they suffer in this place Jesus warned us about. These "witnesses" speak to us irregardless of the stigma of being labeled a “nutcase” if you will. Among those are people whose testimonies can be found on youtube. Such as “23 minutes in Hell“ ( Bill Weiss) “To Hell and Back”- ( Howard Storm, Ronald Regan and others). Earthquake Kelly is another. Also testimonials that are included in “The Lazarus Phenomenon” and others too. “A Divine Revelation of Hell” by Mary K. Baxter is another one I recall right off the top of my head.

It is my personal belief that God is allowing these Life After Death Experiences to occur to these people as a witness to this end-times generation that think with their heads as their hearts become increasingly hardened against the Truth and worship their own intellectualism instead of the Lord Who gave them the gift of intellect to begin with. I believe that their LAD testimonials are truly a witness to the people and nations of the world that despite their many varied opinions , everyone has to account for the things we have done in our bodies while on this earth.

We have accountability to God the Father Who gave His Son to redeem our souls from the devil who desires them. You and I each have a responsibility to tell the people of the world that God is REAL. That so too is His enemy and ours, Lucifer aka Satan. Even though he tries his best to make it appear not so to many as the hands on God’s timepiece approach the Midnight Hour. Satan sees that his time "to roam to and from in the earth like roaring lion seeking whom he may devour" is growing very short indeed. That's why evil is more prevalent now too.

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. And the LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” So Satan answered the LORD and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.” Job 1:6-7)

"Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour." {1 Peter 5:8}

Still there are some who simply refuse to hear Jesus' voice calling out to them. Those who perhaps may be full of false pride, not realizing that to deny Jesus Christ is to reject the best thing that could possibly ever happen to them in their lives.

There is no substitution for a relationship with Jesus Christ. For it is He Who makes all the difference in our lives here and now, and in eternity beyond. If you should hear a “tap tap“ within your spirit? . Don’t refuse to invite Him in as He stands knocking on the door of your heart.

Having left the other 99 He has come looking for the lost sheep that went astray. Are YOU that lamb that went astray?


God not only gave His Greatest treasure 2,000 plus years ago to save and redeem us from the bondages of our sin through the shed blood of His precious Son. He also gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit to come and live inside our hearts to set us free from the power that Satan had over us through them. We have to tell them that time is growing extremely short now. There is an urgency in the “air.”


For a lot of us we seem to have all the reasons why we ‘can’t’ step outside of our “comfort zones“ and testify to a lost world about the love of God through His Son displayed upon the cross of Calvary. "I’m afraid I will dishonor Him." "I don’t know what to say!" "What WOULD I say?" "How would I begin?" "I don’t know enough!" "I don’t want to offend anyone." "I’m no good at talking like Moses said he wasn't-(oh REALLY?)" or "I’m just too introverted." "What if they reject it or mock His Word?" Well..we'll just have to get over that won't we. I pray you say yes and take up the challenge I am placing before you in love. Some of us make "good" use of the internet by sharing the Gospel of Christ that way. For some of us it is our only means of partaking in the Great Commission. It is still warning the lost with further reaching "hands" than many of us could ever hope to travel to by car, train or plane.

You see ...Silence is Not An Option - People Are Truly Perishing For Lack of Hearing The Gospel Message. We need to share with them the Love of God through Christ. And we MUST tell them that the cost of not knowing Him is far - FAR - greater than what they may perceive as a “boring” lifestyle. It is NOT boring at all. It is EXCITING!

I’ve known and lived personally most of the temptations aka "pleasures" that the “world” had to offer while I was lost for so many years. And I give testimony that NONE of them satisfy - not a single solitary one ever filled that huge hole of aching emptiness and loneliness inside that I didn’t even know existed before Jesus saved me. Not a single one of those temporal things I thought were my "answer" EVER soothed that heartache that existed within the deepest part of my soul without Jesus Christ.

What the Word of the Living God tells us is that without the light of the gospel the lost will wind up in a place called 'hell'. It begs the question, "How will they hear unless someone tells them?" How about you? How about ME?

I am far from being a theologian, what I am is a believer in every word proceeding forth from the mouth of God as the inerrant Truth. The Bible contains 66 books penned by 40 authors but breathed by God who led them what to write by the Holy Spirit.

I believe God, you each will make your own choices as to whom you will believe.

"GOD DEMONSTRATED HIS LOVE FOR US IN THAT WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS CHRIST DIED FOR US." Romans 5:8

"And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand."
- Romans 13:11-12

God Bless you all is my prayer. :)

I have never heard anything about any "unseen"...and I am not about to accept this new doctrine on any level. Jesus meant hell as in hell.

Swordofmanitcor E, You have the freedom to believe what you will and so do I. I believe the truth of God's Word and as far as I am concerned this "debate" does not honor God in any way, shape or form. So I am finished with my even talking about this. I know what the truth is and that is what I believe.

Had a few minutes so will address that "all mankind" statement.

If ALL mankind were going to choose to come to Him then God would never have written scriptures such as these:

"And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." {Rev 20:14-15}

And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life." {Rev 21:6-8, 27}

Thank you for wishing my appointment goes well. I'm off now.

No it does not say that He will "drag?" all mankind to Him. But that if He be lifted up He will draw all mankind to Him. But all mankind, as you can see in this world, will not choose come to Him because they love what they are doing instead of repenting and submitting to the Savior.

Now if you say anything else I have not the time to reply now as I have to get ready for my Doctor's appointment.

I am not afraid of what you say. I just didn't know they didn't show up without my approving them. Simple as that. Now they are approved since I know.

I do not fear you. I fear only God and I would never say anything that is not in His Word. Now here are your comments approved.

WE are brothers and sisters in Christ if you believe He is the only Way, was born of a virgin and physically rose 3 days later and is coming again. I will not continue to argue with you about the existence and eternal destination to hell of those who reject God's Son., Why? Because I am not honoring God that way.

Now have a good day won't you.

I have NOT deleted anything. I just haven't "approved" them yet. Will that stop it from showing up? I'm not the world's most computer savvy person.

James 5:7-9

Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.

Not according to "me" - I am no one, God is ALL. He will have mercy upon those who have accepted His Son. I told you I will not sink to debating you and you can't just take a selective scripture and remove the context of the entire scripture and to whom he was talking.

God's Holy Word stands.

What I said is the truth. The doctrines of demons is that God will allow sinners in His Presence. Anyone who rejects Jesus will never be in God's presence.

Sin is the path that leads to damnation apart from God. God is just and so He must deal with sin. Someone might say, "God will simply pardon our sin." But think about how angry we get when someone who commits a crime gets away with it. Why do we get angry? Because a crime went unpunished. Just as a judge must deal with a man's crime, so must God deal with our sin, and "the wages of sin is death" {Romans 6:23}.

But there is another path. Even in these days of His coming wrath He still offers His grace and forgiveness. The Lord is "merciful and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in mercy and takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked" {Psalm 103:8 & Ezekiel 33:11}.

"The Lord is "merciful and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in mercy and takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked" {Psalm 103:8 & Ezekiel 33:11}.

He has provided a way to escape damnation. Jesus Christ is that Way. Jesus Christ is the only Way to God the Father. Jesus is also the Mercy and Grace of God that was displayed upon a Roman cross over 2,000 years ago.

"God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins. If you believe in Him you will not perish, but have eternal life” {John 3:16}.

Our sins were laid on Jesus: "All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him"{Isaiah 53:6}.

And the punishment that He took on at the cross brought us peace with God :

“He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities;

The chastening for our peace fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed” {Isaiah 53:5}.

And just as Jesus rose from the grave, so will we who are His by faith, be raised after we die by Him and live with Him forever.

As I said before, nothing I will say will satisfy your question if you do not know and trust Jesus, who is God, your own self. I talked with my Pastor about your comment and this is all that I know to say on the matter.

Jesus' reward is His obedience to the Father and when He returns, because of what He did for us, he will rule and rign for 1,000 years as King and Lord to all the world.

God is love - but He is also a holy consuming fire, and yes, there is a limit to even His mercy.

God has to be true to Himself and He has waited thousands upon thousands of years to bring to climax what He has declared in His holy Word will take place.

You will not listen to anything that I have tried to share with you the best I could. You do not want the truth. The bible says "do not throw your pearls before swine"

No matter what I say I will not be able to "convince" you. Nor do I care to have a troll. I stick by what I said because I know, that I know that I KNOW that God is Holy and Righteous and the Just Judge of all. He cannot do anything unrighteous. I'm sorry that I cannot answer in a way that would "please" you. However I know what I have said is the truth.

I don't have to put up with anyone blaspheming my Lord, and I shan't.

Oh and you have no clue whatsoever about my faith.

It shows how Holy God truly is. We all have a choice to make. God didn't create hell for mankind. He created it for Satan and his demons/fallen angels. But men choose to rather live in sin than in righteousness by their own free wills.

WE CHOOSE our eternal destination. WE CHOOSE Jesus Who is the truth and the only Way. OR we choose instead to believe the lies of the Enemy. Heaven, or hell. OUR CHOICE.

I love that... "silence is not an option - people are truly perishing for lack of hearing the gospel message" So true, great hub!

I wrote a poem about real Christianity, check it out!
