"The sobering reality of an eternal hell should break our hearts for the lost. May God open our eyes to humanity's desperate condition that we might more willingly and prayerfully declare the grace of God in Christ to those God has placed in our midst."
Question: "Do you think I'm going to hell?"
Response: Only if you're anywhere near as bad a sinner as I am. But the good news is that Jesus fully absorbed the just punishment for all sinners that turn in faith to Him.
"And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.
- Revelation 19:14-16
Jesus is Lord [over all] and he will soon be invading with His armies. He is offering pardon in advance of His invasion and should you receive the pardon and ally yourself with Him now before He invades, when he comes you will be considered His ally and He will raise you to Kingship. The alternative is to be under the wrath of the king. It is not some kind of religious option. It an announcement that a new king is on the throne and he'll be invading. The gospel is not an invitation to an array of a buffet style choices, it is a command. Will you heed the command? Jesus is Lord, repent and believe.
The greatest judgment which God Himself can, in this present life, inflict upon a man is, to leave him in the hand of his own boasted free-will.
