But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having been pardoned by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. Romans 5:9,10
Most people today think that if they are good moral upstanding, even church going folks that they will escape the wrath of God in Hell and enter eternal life. They believe that their good works will save them and that attending church every Sunday without a personal relationship with Jesus Christ will somehow grant them entrance into the gates of Heaven.
Many will have a rude awakening as they plunge into the darkness down the very funnel of the pit of Hell into damnation forever! No escape, no more mercy, no more excuses or trying to justify their lifestyle, only torment and mourning, weeping and gnashing of teeth. Black darkness that can be felt, choking on the fumes and stench of rotting flesh and brimstone covered in molten sulfur.
If only they had listened to the Savior's call, "Come to Me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest!" But no, they continued storing up earthly treasures being destitute of any spiritual wealth and without the Savior's love they perished without His grace destined for eternal punishment forever! If this is your life, no preparation for eternity, no treasure in Heaven, then do this, repent of your sins, cry out to God for mercy, receive the Savior's grace and surrender your life into His loving care and you will live forever!
For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Ephesians 2:8,9
