Sermons about Lake Of Fire
Part 3 of FUEL HSM's series on the Four Key Terms you see that speak about Hell and its implications for us and those we engage with. This week focuses specifically on Jesus' use of the term Gehenna and its history and implications...
This message is from the Sunday evening Hispanic service and is in Spanish and English. It starts with the lake of fire, where all sinners are heading, and ends with the gospel of grace.
Heb 10:31 - It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Even when Satan is bound and out of the picture, sinful mankind will reject God’s salvation. Mankind is depraved by nature and there is only one means of restoration with God…His Son, Jesus Christ
Why then was Christ buried? Why does Paul say it is of first importance? How does Christ’s burial comfort the believer? What blessings are given to us to enjoy? Herman Witsius writes, “…Christian piety requires us to improve it for our own benefit, by holy meditation,” (The Apostles’ Creed, p. 117). How can we better make use of and celebrate Christ’s burial for our benefit? How does frequent meditation on His burial motivate and form our faith on a daily basis? I want to give you seven truths concerning Christ’s burial, which highlight its paramount importance for our faith and the gospel blessings that it sets forth for us to enjoy.
THE SOVEREIGN GOD OF JUDGMENT: the Book of Life and the Eternal Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:11-15 * Message #38/40) 10-16-2011
1. The Sovereign God of Judgment (vs11-12) ● Fear God, give Him the glory, and worship Him! (Rev 14:6-7) 2. The Book of Life: and the Books of Deeds (vs12-13) [See also: Dan 7:10; 12:1; Rev 3:10; 5:9f; 13:8; 17:8; 20:15; 21:27] ● Conquer Satan, sin, death, & hell: (Rev 2–3; 12:17; 13:8; 21:27) through repentance, and by holding to the testimony of Jesus. 3. The Second Death: Eternal Torment in the Lake of Fire (vs14-15) [See also Rev 14:9-11] ● God is sovereign, holy, loving, and just: He does not treat us as our sins deserve, but He will also not leave the guilty unpunished (Gen 1–3; 18:25; Exd 19 & 20; 34:6-7; Lev 26; 2Chr 36:15ff; Ps 27; 73; 103:6-14; Isa 6:1ff; 9:7; 46:8ff; Ezk 18:23; Jonah 4; Nah 1; Mth 25:31ff; Mk 14–16; Lk 15; Jn 1:1ff; 3:16, v35; Rom 1–3; 9–11; Eph 1–3; 2Pe 3; Rev 15:3; 16:7). ● God in His righteous judgment will sentence the unbelieving dead to hell at the Final Judgment: Hell is an everlasting torment of eternal separation from God, an eternal death, an eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels (Gen 2:17; 3:23; Isa 66:24; Lk 16:19ff; Mth 25:41ff; Mk 9:43; Rom 3:23; 6:23; 2Th 1:6ff; Rev 14:6ff; 20:11ff; 21:6-8). ● Jesus Christ is coming back to judge the living and the dead, and He frequently warned sinners about hell: He was not just a good, religious, moral teacher who talked about spirituality, love, & heaven, etc. (Mth 5:29-30; 8:12; 13:42; 16:18; 18:6-9; 23:15,33; 24:45-51; 25:1-46; Mk 9:43-47; Lk 3:7-12; 12:5; 13:1-5; 16:19ff; Jn 5:28-30; Rev 22:15). ● The gospel message includes God’s wrath and judgment: that those who die without faith in Jesus Christ are destined for eternity in hell (Dan 12:2; Mk 8:34-38; Jn 3:16ff, v35; 5:28-30; 14:6; Acts 4:12; Rom 1:18ff; 6:23; 10:14ff; Gal 3:10; 2Th 1:5ff; Heb 9:27-28). ● We cannot be saved from hell after we die: we must believe in and receive Jesus Christ in this life before we die (Lk 16:19ff; 2Th 1:8-9; Heb 9:27; Rev 21:27; 22:15). ● The doctrine and reality of hell should greatly impact what we believe, who we are, and how we live: the doctrine and reality of hell should shock us and grieve us; it should increase the depth of our love for the God who has saved us and our worship of Him; and it should increase our passion for the lost, our love for our enemies, and our perseverance for the gospel (Mth 25:31ff; 27:46; Lk 7:36-50; Jn 3:16ff; Rom 9:2f; 11:32-36; 1Cor 9:19ff; 2Cor 11; Rev 22:15ff). ● We must preach the whole gospel of Jesus Christ unto the glory of God, including but not over-emphasizing the doctrine of hell: Hell is one of the most offensive doctrines to our modern culture, yet we must continue to preach about judgment in hell and God’s love for sinners thru the cross, trusting God’s power in the gospel to save the lost & trusting in God’s righteousness to judge justly (Mth 5–7; 24–25; Mk 8:34-38; Jn 1:1-18; 3:16ff; Acts 20:22ff; 28:31; Rom 1–3; 1Cor 1:18–2:5; 2Tim 4:1-5; Jms 5; 2Pe 2–3; 1Jn 1:1ff; 5:13-21; Rev 1; 5; 7; 12–14; 19–22).
Is hell real? If so, what is it really like? Who will go to hell? Listen to today's sermon for answers to these and other questions about the existence of hell.
Listen to hear the reason the Son of God came to live on Earth.
This sermon looks at ways that people try to hide from God. It examines the things man tries to hide behind. It also looks at the Great White Throne Judgement where there will be no more hiding. The non-belivers will be pulled out of Hell to meet Jesus face to face. Their works will be judged and their names will not be found in the Lambs book of life. They will then be cast into the Lake of Fire which is the 2nd Death.
