Why Eternal Hell?

Here’s a big argument that not many people may know or understand.

If a sinner is let into heaven, they will corrupt heaven with sin, essentially sending the entire creation into a hell like spiral.

Also, God can’t be around sin, so he would eternally be separated from his own creation.

So, God could annihilate, but it is against his nature, because he doesn’t revoke any of his gifts. He is a creator, not destroyer.

So, God’s only choice is to punish and quarantine evil and sin.

His punishment is just, because of the repercussions.

Now let’s say God let’s someone out of hell in 1,000 years, what would prevent them from being rebellious towards God again? If the consequence doesn’t last, what would stop them from sinning, if they knew they would keep getting out of jail by God?

Therefore, the punishment has to be eternal.

The Salvation Equation

There are a couple different ideas of what the “Salvation Equation” is, I will present them all then say the one that makes the most sense to me. The Terms are all the same however, and idea is mostly the same, which is A + B = C. A = a believers part. B = God’s part. C=salvation, where B is always equal to Jesus death on the cross.

  1. https://10lovecommandments.com/salvation-equation/
    1. A = Repentance, or Following the 10 commandments
      1. Problem is that Christians are not required to keep the sabbath
  2. http://www.communitybiblechapel.com/templates/System/details.asp?id=34460&fetch=35696
    1. A = Faith, which I agree with, depending on how you define Faith. Here is how I would define Faith. From Eph. 2:8

Faith is a posture of Repentance (Confession of Sin, Turning from Sin, Right Living, Obedience towards God / making Jesus Lord, Following the relevant commandments, which is all except for ‘Keep the Sabbath’ which Paul says was a shadow of things to come in Colossians 2:16-17)  in which you transfer the weight of your hopes of heaven off of your own righteousness and onto the finished work of Jesus Christ, but you try to live a God honoring life.

You can’t earn your salvation  by living a good life, because we all have sin, and nothing can erase the sin we’ve done except for our Faith in Christ. If we could make heaven by obeying the 10 commandments, we wouldn’t need Jesus.

Another good article: https://www.gospelway.com/salvation/obedience.php

Titus 3:5-8 – We aren’t saved by works but expected to do them! 🙂

Do Christians Need to Keep the 10 Commandments?

The short answer is, NO. The long answer is that we should be obedient to the relevant commandments, and they should give us an idea of how to serve God better and keep from sinning.

The 10 commandments can be further simplified by Jesus 2 commandments in Matthew 22:37-39

The only commandment Paul states we don’t have to follow is “Keep Sabbath Holy”, based on Colossians 2:16–17

Unrepentance Can Lead You To Hell!

8/12/18 – 100% from God after I asked him to confirm 2028 and asked him something else? Maybe how to get into the Kingdom?

In my dream, I was placed in a hell like scenario. Then I said, “I repent! I repent!” and when I said this I would slowly rise to what I thought was heaven. Then I got to a strange place (neither heaven nor hell). It felt like an underground place on the Earth that was about to collapse and cause everyone to die. Dani wanted to leave me to become a preacher of her own, saying the church is not preaching the right thing for the end times? Dani wanted to be alone because she felt the church was not preaching the right message for the end times. She had judgement and un-forgiveness in her heart. I also saw Ant V, telling him we need to repent daily to make the Kingdom! I also almost followed a bad crowd. that was going to sell drugs, and almost went into a women’s swimming pool? Then, something happened and everyone died, and God showed me 2 numbers painted on wood (which I thought were 43 and 21).

and I feel like the whole scenario started over, and I saw Kelsie, and she asked, “Are we here forever?” As if we were doomed to repeat the same scenario over and over again in an almost purgatorial like state.

Then I woke up in pain from cramping in my right leg upper calf.

I feel like God is asking me to tell Dani, Kesley, Ant V, and me to repent! was confirming the importance of repentance to make the Kingdom! I believe God wanted me to share this message with Dani, Kelsey, Ant V., and Me.

I feel like God wants us to make repentance a daily or even continuous activity!

Numbers 43 and Numbers 21 (Numbers 36 ?) shown at the end? My age will be 43 in 2028 and 21 is 7 years before 2028., and scientists are saying there might be an asteroid hit in 2028-9ish. 2024-2025 – Begin worldwide persecution of Christians and Rise of the AC?

Luke 13:3



What happened to the humans who never heard of Christ?

Adam, the first man, knew of God, and directly disobeyed him leading to humanities fall. We have the promise of a savior since Adam.

Since Adam ate the fruit, humanity knew the difference between GOOD and EVIL, and God can judge on that basis, or on the basis of a hope in a future savior.

Since Moses, humanity had the 10 commandments. Therefore, God can judge based on that, or in the hope of a future savior.

Since Jesus, we’ve had the fulfillment of the bible, and God can forgive transgressions of the Law through human repentance.

So, ignoring that the vast majority of humanity has heard of Christ, the question is “What happens to humans who have never heard of Christ?” I believe God will judge them based on their knowledge of Good and Evil. This question also calls into question God’s sovereignty, if God wants someone to know Christ, they will!

Identifying Lukewarm Christians

(of a person, attitude, or action) unenthusiastic.

  1. You are embarrassed and ashamed to talk about Jesus or your faith (not loving Jesus), or rarely share your faith in Christ
  2. You have religious actions, but no real relationship with Jesus (not loving Jesus)
  3. You are more concerned with “offending people” that you don’t share your faith. (not loving your neighbor)
  4. warning signs. : not feeling the desire to read your bible. Talking to God less. Talking about God less. Spending more of your free time indulging in things that are of the world rather than of God. Stuff like that.
  5. You have one foot in the world, one foot in Christ
  6. To be lukewarm is to think you have everything you need because you are rich and have material things but you do not seek after the things of God. You don’t care to repent of your sins (wretched), pray/ establish a relationship with God (pitiable), store up treasure in HEAVEN (poor), read your Bible (blind) or do good works (naked).
  7. Being a lukewarm christian simply means that you don’t want to give EVERYTHING to God your not completely for Him but your not completely against Him. God would rather you be one or the other.
  8. Lukewarm christian is one who has no love of the truth.
    They have no love of reading the Bile.
    No love of studying its meanings.
    No love of learning what they can that they dont know.
    They dont care, they dont study, they dont seek,
    They are happy and don’t want anything to change, because that is inconvenient for them.
  9. The Lord says that, ‘I would rather you be hot or cold.’luke/warm is just another word to ‘fence-straddle’.
    they want to serve 2 masters.
    they desire to be Spiritual and carnal.
    they desire that the ‘old-man’ walk hand-in-hand with the ‘new-man’.
    this is spiritual confusion, you cannot be partakers of the table of devils
    and the table of The Lord, our Father wants 100% of us.
  10. Crave acceptance from people more than acceptance from God
  11. Think more about life on earth than eternity in heaven
  12. Only turn to God when they are in a bind
  13. Want to be saved from the penalty of sin without changing their lives (non-repentant)
  14. Give whenever it doesn’t hinder their standard of living
  15. Are not much different from the rest of the world
  16. Want the benefits of what Christ did without conforming to who He is

It all boils down to either 2 things….

  1. You do not fully love God
  2. You do not love your neighbor as yourself

If you live EVERY DAY for Jesus, you can not be lukewarm! 🙂

Billy Graham on “lukewarm”

The Bible actually tells us what a “lukewarm” Christian is; it’s someone who’s neither hot nor cold about their faith (see Revelation 3:14-16).

In other words, their faith doesn’t mean very much to them. They aren’t particularly enthusiastic about it, nor are they hostile toward it. Instead, they drift along, perhaps going to church when it’s convenient or giving some money to God’s work — but never sacrificing to help others or going out of their way to share Christ with someone. Instead of loving God with all their heart, they are indifferent toward Him, and think about Him mainly when they get in trouble.

The Bible says a startling thing about a lukewarm faith: It tells us that God detests it. He even warns, “So, because you are lukewarm — neither hot nor cold — I am about to spit you out of my mouth” (Revelation 3:16). Does that sound harsh? It may at first — but remember: Jesus Christ left the glory of heaven and willingly shed His blood on the cross for us. He loves us that much! How can we remain indifferent to Him?

If this describes you, don’t despair. God wants to forgive you and draw you closer to Himself — and He will, as you repent of your sin and commit yourself without reserve to Christ. Begin a new journey with Christ today. Then get in a church where Christ is preached and lived, so you can continue to grow in your faith. You’ll never regret it.

What do you think a “lukewarm” Christian is?

How to be on fire for God

Have excitement about your faith!

Love God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength! Jesus Loves us so much, he gave his life for us! He was tortured for us!

Love your neighbor as yourself!

  • Attend church, community group, bible study
  • Ask Jesus to reveal your sin and repent!
  • Praise God under all conditions
  • Remember what I’ve been forgiven of and rescue from hell
  • Read the bible regularly
  • Evangelize
  • Actually DO what God tells you to DO! 🙂

Letter to Family #1

Dear Family,

I’m writing this letter to you out of love. I’m more than 100% certain that there is a God, and trying to deny the existence of God is similar to trying to keep a beach ball underwater, it will always pop up. The characteristics of this God are perfect Love, Justice, Mercy, Peace, and Wrath towards sin. Sin is defined as transgressing divine law, and has been passed down from human generation to generation. We all sin as naturally as breathing, in fact it takes the indwelling spirit of God to transform you to recognize your sin and to put an end to it. From my experience, things I didn’t consider bad before being a Christian, were pointed out to me as bad by the indwelling spirit of God. The greatest proof of God’s power is the power to transform someone’s life and change hearts.

There are many mysteries to life. One such mystery is the reality of our individual consciousness, another such mystery is abiogenesis, the formation of life from non-living matter, and another is the creation of the universe from non-existence. Based on the Cosmological Argument, there MUST be a first uncaused-cause, and there is reason to believe this first uncaused-cause is incredibly powerful and intelligent in order to design the universe and design life. Based on the fine-tuning principal, the universe appears to be designed to allow life. Until abiogenesis can be proven in the lab, a close examination of life reveals design, DNA in life turned bio-science into computer-science, and even Dawkins admits that DNA is similar to “Computer code,” and something like computer code cannot arise naturally, just like if you leave a blank book in the woods you wouldn’t expect The Lord of the Rings to be written in it, no matter how much time you leave it there. The Void and time are not creative forces. I conclude that many unexplained phenomenon can be attributed to the existence of God and a higher level of reality.

Another mystery of life is the existence of objective truth and objective right and wrong. Without a moral agent writing what is right or wrong on our hearts, we would have absolutely no concept of good or evil or justice. This is by definition the Moral Argument for God. When an atheist asks, “Why is there so much evil in the world?”, we can look at that question and realize it doesn’t make sense unless we presume the existence of God. Without God there is no such thing as objective right or wrong, and you could make the argument that what a mass murderer did was actually acceptable by his culture for the time, if right or wrong are subjective, you can rationalize any kind of evil.

So, you might think that God might be a good possibility, or know it is true in your heart. Why the God of the bible? The God is Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob? There are many good reasons to believe, I won’t get into all of them, but I will mention them in case you want to do research on them.

The first reason is fulfilled prophecy, there is reason to believe that Jesus himself fulfilled over 300 prophecies about his first appearance. Another fulfilled prophecy to research is the one about Tyre, where Ezekiel predicts what Alexander the Great did centuries later.

The second reason is that the bible contains advanced scientific and medical knowledge for its time. The Law of God had Jewish people washing their hands before any other people did. God gave his people procedures for the quarantine of Leprosy, which was actually used to quarantine the black plague later. An Angel warned Samson’s mother to avoid alcohol while pregnant, and the rest of the world didn’t catch up until 1899. The bible also describes an expanding universe and the fact that the Earth hangs on nothing.

The third reason is the accuracy of the ancient text. Between AD 40-100, there were 24,000 copies of the New Testament found, the next most accurate ancient text is the Iliad with 643 copies found. Scholars cannot deny that Jesus existed. There is also very good historical evidence for Jesus resurrection, where he proves he has power over death. Producing the body of Jesus would have actually stopped the spread of Christianity.

The fourth reason is a plea from me personally. Jesus Christ personally removed my spiritual blinders in October 2015, and when I realized he was the way, truth, and life, and that Christianity is true, I felt like in my brain, saying, “This incredibly stupid thing is true!??” Then when I began to fall away from the faith in the first few months of it, Jesus appeared to me in a dream and restored it! Since then, I have had SO MUCH personal confirmation that I’m on the correct path that it has become undeniable, from incredibly personal and accurate prophecy to seeing God work in others’ lives like forewarning someone of a drunk driver hitting them on the exact road it would happen, to experience with the not so friendly demonic entities not only in my life, but seeing it in the lives of others as well.

The fifth plea is a plea from reason. Without God, our lives are essentially purposeless and insignificant. Nothing you do ever matters, there will be no ultimate justice in the universe, and we all are given the same reward, non-existence. God defines and gives us purpose. God’s ultimate purpose for us is to Love Him and Love Others as ourselves.

The sixth reason is basically Pascal’s Wager, except one where there is more evidence for the God of the bible than there is for ANY OTHER GOD!

The penalty for sin is death. Thankfully, Jesus paid the full penalty of our sin on the cross. By believing he died and rose again and proclaiming before men that He is Lord, you can be saved from the wrath of God!

Life on Earth contains many trials, but for the believer none of our suffering is pointless.

God is the source of all truth, life, and goodness. God also chooses a people for himself and takes their sides. God has friends and enemies. Woe unto the enemy of God!

I pray that God lifts your spiritual blindness and heals your hearts. The reward for choosing God is Eternal Life on a New Earth without pain or sorrow or death or sin. The ultimate utopian society of Peace. There can be no peace without him.

“Look, he is coming with the clouds,” and “every eye will see him, even those who pierced him”; and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.” So shall it be! Amen.

Prayfully consider the above and be blessed in Jesus Name, Amen.

False Christians

Signs of a false Christian…

  1. They depend on their own good works to get into heaven. Instead, they should trust in Christs finished work by faith, and depend on Christs righteousness.
  2. They twist scripture to suit their own agenda
  3. They don’t give Jesus EVERYTHING and don’t live their life for God
  4. They don’t persevere to the end
    1. They will typically fall away during a trial
  5. They are selfish
  6. They are not obedient
    1. They make a practice of sin
  7. They do not have a change of heart or a new nature
  8. They lack fruit
  9. They aren’t being sanctified

Characteristics of a True Convert

So what are the fruits of a new convert? Well, according Matthew 3:8, there is the fruit of repentance. If we are soundly saved, we will have evidence of repentance. Zacchaeus said, “Behold, Lord, I give half my goods to the poor; and if I have wronged anyone, I will pay back fourfold” (Luke 19:8).

Colossians 1:10The fruit of good works. If you read the book of Titus, Titus continually says things like, “Let those who have believed in God be careful to maintain good works” (Titus 3:8). Jesus Himself said, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

Hebrews 13:15The fruit of thanksgiving. Oh, once you’ve seen the cross, you will say, “O thanks be to God for the unspeakable gift” (2 Corinthians 9:15).

Galatians 5:22The fruit of the Spirit. If you are soundly saved, if you are a genuine convert, you will manifest the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, gentleness, faith, meekness, and temperance.

Philippians 1:11The fruit of righteousness. You will do that which is right. “He will lead you in the paths of righteousness” (Psalm 23:3).

And then Matthew 3:10 warns that “every tree that brings not forth good fruit”—not ordinary fruit, but good fruit—“will be cut down and cast into the fire.” So as witnesses of Christ we should do everything we can, not just to get church members, not just to get decisions or youth group members; but with God’s help, we must make sure that those we bring to the Savior have the things that accompany salvation (Hebrews 6:9).

Characteristics of a False Convert

The Parable of the Sower is also in Matthew 13 and Luke 8, so we are going to use the harmony of the Gospels to look at six characteristics of a false conversion.

Mark 4:5There are immediate results with a false convert. That is, he hears the modern message of everlasting life and says, “I want that.” There is no weighing of the issues. And yet Jesus said, “What man goes to war without checking out what the enemy’s got? What man builds a tower without seeing if he’s got enough materials?” (Luke 14:28–31).

Luke 8:6There is a lack of moisture. There is no thirst for the living God.

Matthew 13:6There is no root. There is no depth of godly character.

Mark 4:16They received the word with gladness. And this is the key. You see, when the Law is not preached, sin is not seen as being exceedingly sinful. Paul said, “By the commandment, sin became exceedingly sinful” (Romans 7:13). And when sin is not seen in the light of what it is—being exceedingly sinful—there is no trembling before a holy God. There is no contrition, no sorrow for sin. So the false convert receives the word with gladness.

Matthew 13:20They receive the word with joy. Their laughter isn’t turned to mourning, and their joy isn’t turned to heaviness (James 4:9).

Luke 8:13For a while they do believe. They have a genuine “false conversion” experience.

Psalm 109 – How to interpret it

Help Me, O Lord My God

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

109 Be not silent, O God of my praise!
For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me,
    speaking against me with lying tongues.
They encircle me with words of hate,
    and attack me without cause.
In return for my love they accuse me,
    but I give myself to prayer.[a]
So they reward me evil for good,
    and hatred for my love.

The following quoted part of the Psalm is actually what David’s accuser says against him!


Appoint a wicked man against him;
    let an accuser stand at his right hand.
When he is tried, let him come forth guilty;
    let his prayer be counted as sin!
May his days be few;
    may another take his office!
May his children be fatherless
    and his wife a widow!
10 May his children wander about and beg,
    seeking food far from the ruins they inhabit!
11 May the creditor seize all that he has;
    may strangers plunder the fruits of his toil!
12 Let there be none to extend kindness to him,
    nor any to pity his fatherless children!
13 May his posterity be cut off;
    may his name be blotted out in the second generation!
14 May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the Lord,
    and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out!
15 Let them be before the Lord continually,
    that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth!

16 For he did not remember to show kindness,
    but pursued the poor and needy
    and the brokenhearted, to put them to death.
17 He loved to curse; let curses come[b] upon him!
    He did not delight in blessing; may it be far[c] from him!
18 He clothed himself with cursing as his coat;
    may it soak[d] into his body like water,
    like oil into his bones!
19 May it be like a garment that he wraps around him,
    like a belt that he puts on every day!
20 May this be the reward of my accusers from the Lord,
    of those who speak evil against my life!

21 But you, O God my Lord,
    deal on my behalf for your name’s sake;
    because your steadfast love is good, deliver me!
22 For I am poor and needy,
    and my heart is stricken within me.
23 I am gone like a shadow at evening;
    I am shaken off like a locust.
24 My knees are weak through fasting;
    my body has become gaunt, with no fat.
25 I am an object of scorn to my accusers;
    when they see me, they wag their heads.

26 Help me, O Lord my God!
    Save me according to your steadfast love!
27 Let them know that this is your hand;
    you, O Lord, have done it!
28 Let them curse, but you will bless!
    They arise and are put to shame, but your servant will be glad!
29 May my accusers be clothed with dishonor;
    may they be wrapped in their own shame as in a cloak!

30 With my mouth I will give great thanks to the Lord;
    I will praise him in the midst of the throng.
31 For he stands at the right hand of the needy one,
    to save him from those who condemn his soul to death.

Accuracy of Prophecy

Use Words Wisely

Look at what scripture teaches about how we use our words: https://www.openbible.info/topics/words

For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.

I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.

A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.

On the day of Judgement, ALL will be judged for every harsh, uncaring word they speak! With the advent of social media, it’s easy to get into anger and say angry things to strangers! Our words have power!

Therefore, be careful what you speak and type. Amen.
