  • TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY!
  • 00:01:31.010 --> 00:01:32.160
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:32.170 --> 00:01:34.220
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:34.230 --> 00:01:42.250
  • RABBI HAROLD KUSHNER TELLS A STORY ABOUT A GODLESS,
  • 00:01:42.260 --> 00:01:47.210
  • IMMORAL MAN WHO DIED AND TO HIS SURPRISE HE
  • 00:01:47.220 --> 00:01:51.140
  • AWAKENED IN A PLACE THAT HAD SOFT MUSIC AND WARM
  • 00:01:51.150 --> 00:01:56.220
  • LIGHTS, AND FIGURES ALL DRESSED IN WHITE.
  • 00:01:56.230 --> 00:02:01.020
  • AND THE GODLESS MAN THOUGHT TO HIMSELF: WELL,
  • 00:02:01.030 --> 00:02:02.250
  • YOU KNOW, GOD MUST HAVE A SOFT SPOT IN HIS HEART FOR
  • 00:02:02.260 --> 00:02:05.110
  • PEOPLE LIKE ME.
  • 00:02:05.120 --> 00:02:06.070
  • I'M SURPRISED I'M HERE.
  • 00:02:06.080 --> 00:02:08.060
  • AND SO HE WENT TO ONE OF THE MEN DRESSED IN WHITE,
  • 00:02:08.070 --> 00:02:10.100
  • AND HE SAID: BUDDY, DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU CAN GET A
  • 00:02:10.110 --> 00:02:12.140
  • DRINK AROUND HERE?
  • 00:02:12.150 --> 00:02:14.180
  • AND THE FIGURE IN WHITE SAID: WELL,
  • 00:02:14.190 --> 00:02:15.170
  • IF YOU'RE REFERRING TO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES SIR,
  • 00:02:15.180 --> 00:02:17.250
  • WE DON'T SERVE THOSE HERE.
  • 00:02:17.260 --> 00:02:19.290
  • HE SAID: WELL, WHERE WOULD I GO FOR A GAME OF
  • 00:02:20.000 --> 00:02:21.190
  • BLACKJACK OR POKER?
  • 00:02:21.200 --> 00:02:24.020
  • HE SAID: WELL SIR, IF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:02:24.030 --> 00:02:25.160
  • GAMBLING, WE DON'T ALLOW THAT EITHER UP HERE.
  • 00:02:25.170 --> 00:02:28.170
  • THE NEW ENTRANT SAID: WELL,
  • 00:02:28.180 --> 00:02:30.120
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE BOOZE AND YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:02:30.130 --> 00:02:32.250
  • GAMBLING WHAT DO YOU ALL DO AROUND HERE ALL DAY?
  • 00:02:32.260 --> 00:02:36.020
  • THE MAN IN WHITE SAID: WELL,
  • 00:02:36.030 --> 00:02:37.070
  • WE READ PSALMS IN THE MORNING,
  • 00:02:37.080 --> 00:02:39.290
  • WE HAVE PRAYER MEETINGS ALL AFTERNOON;
  • 00:02:40.000 --> 00:02:42.080
  • AND WE READ THE BIBLE
  • 00:02:42.090 --> 00:02:43.090
  • AND HAVE BIBLE STUDIES AT NIGHT.
  • 00:02:43.100 --> 00:02:45.240
  • THE GUY SAID: PSALMS, BIBLE STUDIES,
  • 00:02:45.250 --> 00:02:48.110
  • PRAYER MEETINGS?
  • 00:02:48.120 --> 00:02:49.160
  • BOY, HEAVEN ISN'T CRACKED UP TO WHAT I THOUGHT IT
  • 00:02:49.170 --> 00:02:51.180
  • WAS GOING TO BE LIKE.
  • 00:02:51.190 --> 00:02:53.090
  • THE FIGURE IN WHITE SAID TO HIM SMILINGLY: I CAN
  • 00:02:53.100 --> 00:02:56.260
  • SEE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND SIR - WE'RE IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:02:56.270 --> 00:03:00.130
  • YOU'RE IN HELL.
  • 00:03:00.140 --> 00:03:01.090
  • 00:03:01.100 --> 00:03:04.050
  • IT'S A CUTE STORY; BUT UNFORTUNATELY IT'S A
  • 00:03:04.060 --> 00:03:07.050
  • MISLEADING ONE.
  • 00:03:07.060 --> 00:03:08.270
  • IT'S A MISLEADING STORY THAT UNDERSCORES ONE OF
  • 00:03:08.280 --> 00:03:11.160
  • THE MOST GREATEST MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT
  • 00:03:11.170 --> 00:03:14.260
  • ETERNITY THAT MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE,
  • 00:03:14.270 --> 00:03:17.010
  • AND THAT IS THAT WHEN WE DIE,
  • 00:03:17.020 --> 00:03:19.240
  • REGARDLESS OF WHO WE ARE, AND WHAT WE'VE DONE,
  • 00:03:19.250 --> 00:03:22.040
  • AND WHAT RELIGION WE'VE EMBRACED OR REJECTED WE
  • 00:03:22.050 --> 00:03:24.030
  • ALL GO TO THE SAME PLACE.
  • 00:03:24.040 --> 00:03:27.100
  • BUT JESUS SAID JUST THE OPPOSITE.
  • 00:03:27.110 --> 00:03:30.080
  • HE SAID THERE IS NOT ONE DESTINATION;
  • 00:03:30.090 --> 00:03:32.180
  • THERE ARE TWO POSSIBLE ETERNAL DESTINATIONS.
  • 00:03:32.190 --> 00:03:35.210
  • IN FACT, REMEMBER HIS WORDS IN MATTHEW 7:13-14.
  • 00:03:35.220 --> 00:03:39.070
  • HE SAID, "ENTER BY THE NARROW GATE,
  • 00:03:39.080 --> 00:03:42.010
  • FOR THE GATE IS WIDE AND THE WAY IS BROAD THAT
  • 00:03:42.020 --> 00:03:44.190
  • LEADS TO DESTRUCTION; AND MANY ARE THOSE WHO ENTER IT.
  • 00:03:44.200 --> 00:03:49.020
  • BUT THE GATE IS SMALL, AND THE WAY IS NARROW THAT
  • 00:03:49.030 --> 00:03:51.280
  • LEADS TO LIFE; AND FEW ARE THOSE WHO FIND IT."
  • 00:03:51.290 --> 00:03:56.210
  • UP TO THIS POINT IN OUR SERIES ON BIBLE PROPHECY
  • 00:03:56.220 --> 00:03:59.130
  • WE'VE BEEN LOOKING AT WHAT HAPPENS TO CHRISTIANS WHEN
  • 00:03:59.140 --> 00:04:02.180
  • THEY DIE.
  • 00:04:02.190 --> 00:04:03.210
  • WE SAW THAT WHEN A CHRISTIAN DIES,
  • 00:04:03.220 --> 00:04:06.040
  • HIS SPIRIT IMMEDIATELY GOES INTO THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST.
  • 00:04:06.050 --> 00:04:09.160
  • SECOND CORINTHIANS 5:8, "TO BE ABSENT FROM THE BODY..."
  • 00:04:09.170 --> 00:04:12.150
  • FOR A CHRISTIAN, "...IS TO BE AT HOME WITH THE LORD."
  • 00:04:12.160 --> 00:04:15.140
  • BUT THAT'S NOT ALL.
  • 00:04:15.150 --> 00:04:16.220
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IF YOU DIE AS A BELIEVER NOT ONLY
  • 00:04:16.230 --> 00:04:19.180
  • WILL YOUR SPIRIT GO TO THE LORD,
  • 00:04:19.190 --> 00:04:21.020
  • BUT ONE DAY YOUR PHYSICAL BODY WILL BE RESURRECTED
  • 00:04:21.030 --> 00:04:24.090
  • AND CHANGED; AND YOU'LL RECEIVE A BRAND NEW BODY.
  • 00:04:24.100 --> 00:04:27.140
  • AND THAT'S NOT ALL.
  • 00:04:27.150 --> 00:04:28.150
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THERE ARE ETERNAL REWARDS FOR THOSE
  • 00:04:28.160 --> 00:04:31.000
  • WHO DIE IN CHRIST.
  • 00:04:31.010 --> 00:04:32.270
  • RESURRECTED BODIES, ETERNAL REWARDS,
  • 00:04:32.280 --> 00:04:35.270
  • A RECREATED HEAVEN AND EARTH - THAT IS THE FUTURE
  • 00:04:35.280 --> 00:04:38.280
  • OF CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:04:38.290 --> 00:04:41.120
  • BUT THE BIBLE SAID THERE ARE TWO WAYS THAT LEAD TO
  • 00:04:41.130 --> 00:04:45.090
  • TWO GATES THAT OPEN TO TWO DIFFERENT DESTINIES.
  • 00:04:45.100 --> 00:04:49.040
  • WHAT IS THE DESTINY OF THOSE
  • 00:04:49.050 --> 00:04:50.210
  • WHO DIE WITHOUT CHRIST?
  • 00:04:50.220 --> 00:04:53.040
  • WELL, THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT TODAY.
  • 00:04:53.050 --> 00:04:54.250
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES, TURN TO LUKE 16.
  • 00:04:54.260 --> 00:04:58.260
  • LUKE 16.
  • 00:04:58.270 --> 00:05:01.210
  • WE'RE GOING TO SEE WHAT JESUS SAYS IS THE ETERNAL
  • 00:05:01.220 --> 00:05:05.050
  • FATE, THE DESTINY OF THOSE WHO DIE WITHOUT CHRIST.
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:09.080
  • LISTEN TO ME THIS MORNING,
  • 00:05:10.090 --> 00:05:11.060
  • WHEN IT COMES TO ISSUES OF LIFE,
  • 00:05:11.070 --> 00:05:12.230
  • DEATH, AND ETERNITY - YOU BETTER DEPEND ON SOMEBODY
  • 00:05:12.240 --> 00:05:15.190
  • WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:05:15.200 --> 00:05:17.280
  • THE ONLY RELIABLE GUIDE TO AN UNKNOWN DESTINATION IS
  • 00:05:17.290 --> 00:05:21.060
  • SOMEBODY WHO HAS ALREADY BEEN THERE.
  • 00:05:21.070 --> 00:05:24.010
  • THERE IS ONLY ONE PERSON WHO'S SEEN LIFE ON THE
  • 00:05:24.020 --> 00:05:26.030
  • OTHER SIDE OF THE GRAVE AND COME BACK TO TELL US
  • 00:05:26.040 --> 00:05:28.010
  • WHAT AWAITS US.
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:28.260
  • HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:31.250
  • AND JESUS HAD A GREAT DEAL TO SAY ABOUT
  • 00:05:31.260 --> 00:05:34.180
  • THE SUBJECT OF HELL.
  • 00:05:34.190 --> 00:05:36.070
  • IN FACT IT'S REALLY INTERESTING.
  • 00:05:36.080 --> 00:05:38.120
  • JESUS TALKED MORE ABOUT HELL
  • 00:05:38.130 --> 00:05:40.120
  • THAN HE DID ABOUT HEAVEN.
  • 00:05:40.130 --> 00:05:42.140
  • AND YET MANY PEOPLE READILY ACCEPT WHAT JESUS
  • 00:05:42.150 --> 00:05:44.170
  • SAID ABOUT HEAVEN; THEY WANT TO DISMISS WHAT HE
  • 00:05:44.180 --> 00:05:46.220
  • SAID ABOUT HELL.
  • 00:05:46.230 --> 00:05:47.220
  • YOU CAN'T BE INTELLECTUALLY HONEST AND DO THAT.
  • 00:05:47.230 --> 00:05:50.180
  • YOU KNOW, IF JESUS IS NOT TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT
  • 00:05:50.190 --> 00:05:52.280
  • HEAVEN - IT'S ONLY BECAUSE,
  • 00:05:52.290 --> 00:05:55.020
  • NUMBER ONE, HE REALLY DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:05:55.030 --> 00:05:57.260
  • TO AN UNBELIEVER WHEN HE DIES.
  • 00:05:57.270 --> 00:05:59.070
  • IF THAT'S TRUE, HE'S NOT GOD.
  • 00:05:59.080 --> 00:06:01.250
  • THE ONLY OTHER REASON WOULD BE THAT HE'S WRONG
  • 00:06:01.260 --> 00:06:04.170
  • ABOUT HELL IS HE KNEW HELL DIDN'T EXIST,
  • 00:06:04.180 --> 00:06:07.160
  • BUT HE WAS JUST TRYING TO SCARE PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:07.170 --> 00:06:09.080
  • THAT MAKES JESUS A LIAR.
  • 00:06:09.090 --> 00:06:11.080
  • IF YOU ACCEPT JESUS AS SAVIOR,
  • 00:06:11.090 --> 00:06:13.230
  • YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT EVERYTHING HE TAUGHT
  • 00:06:13.240 --> 00:06:16.010
  • INCLUDING WHAT HE TAUGHT ABOUT HELL.
  • 00:06:16.020 --> 00:06:18.160
  • WELL THAT BEGS THE QUESTION: WHAT DID JESUS
  • 00:06:18.170 --> 00:06:21.000
  • TEACH ABOUT THE FUTURE OF UNBELIEVERS WHEN THEY DIE?
  • 00:06:21.010 --> 00:06:24.190
  • LOOK AT THE PASSAGE , LUKE 16:19-26.
  • 00:06:24.200 --> 00:06:28.110
  • "NOW THERE WAS A CERTAIN RICH MAN,
  • 00:06:28.120 --> 00:06:30.160
  • AND HE HABITUALLY DRESSED IN PURPLE AND FINE LINEN,
  • 00:06:30.170 --> 00:06:34.000
  • GAILY LIVING IN SPLENDOR EVERY DAY.
  • 00:06:34.010 --> 00:06:36.140
  • AND A CERTAIN POOR MAN NAMED LAZARUS WAS LAID AT
  • 00:06:36.150 --> 00:06:39.090
  • HIS GATE, COVERED WITH SORES,
  • 00:06:39.100 --> 00:06:41.200
  • AND LONGING TO BE FED WITH THE CRUMBS WHICH WERE
  • 00:06:41.210 --> 00:06:44.210
  • FALLING FROM THE RICH MAN'S TABLE;
  • 00:06:44.220 --> 00:06:46.200
  • BESIDES, EVEN THE DOGS WERE COMING AND LICKING HIS SORES.
  • 00:06:46.210 --> 00:06:50.270
  • AND IT CAME ABOUT THAT THE POOR MAN DIED AND WAS
  • 00:06:50.280 --> 00:06:53.180
  • CARRIED AWAY BY THE ANGELS TO ABRAHAM'S BOSOM;"
  • 00:06:53.190 --> 00:06:56.160
  • THAT IS THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD,
  • 00:06:56.170 --> 00:06:58.090
  • "AND THE RICH MAN ALSO DIED AND WAS BURIED.
  • 00:06:58.100 --> 00:07:01.260
  • IN HADES THE RICH MAN LIFTED UP HIS EYES,
  • 00:07:01.270 --> 00:07:05.060
  • BEING IN TORMENT, AND HE SAW ABRAHAM FAR AWAY AND
  • 00:07:05.070 --> 00:07:08.220
  • LAZARUS IN HIS BOSOM.
  • 00:07:08.230 --> 00:07:10.180
  • AND THE RICH MAN CRIED OUT AND SAID,
  • 00:07:10.190 --> 00:07:12.130
  • 'FATHER ABRAHAM, HAVE MERCY ON ME,
  • 00:07:12.140 --> 00:07:15.230
  • AND SEND LAZARUS THAT HE MAY DIP THE TIP OF HIS
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:18.200
  • FINGER IN WATER AND COOL OFF MY TONGUE,
  • 00:07:18.210 --> 00:07:21.250
  • FOR I AM IN AGONY IN THIS FLAME.' BUT ABRAHAM SAID,
  • 00:07:21.260 --> 00:07:27.120
  • 'CHILD, REMEMBER THAT DURING YOUR LIFE YOU
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:30.100
  • RECEIVED YOUR GOOD THINGS, AND LIKEWISE LAZARUS BAD
  • 00:07:30.110 --> 00:07:33.050
  • THINGS; BUT NOW HE IS BEING COMFORTED,
  • 00:07:33.060 --> 00:07:35.240
  • AND YOU ARE IN AGONY.
  • 00:07:35.250 --> 00:07:37.240
  • AND BESIDES ALL THIS, BETWEEN US AND YOU THERE
  • 00:07:37.250 --> 00:07:40.060
  • IS A GREAT CHASM FIXED, IN ORDER THAT THOSE WHO WISH
  • 00:07:40.070 --> 00:07:44.110
  • TO COME FROM HERE TO YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE,
  • 00:07:44.120 --> 00:07:47.280
  • AND THAT NONE MAY CROSS OVER THERE TO US.'"
  • 00:07:47.290 --> 00:07:52.290
  • I WANT YOU TO NOTICE IN THIS PASSAGE FIVE TRUTHS THAT
  • 00:07:53.000 --> 00:07:56.120
  • JESUS TAUGHT US ABOUT HELL,
  • 00:07:56.130 --> 00:07:59.200
  • THE FATE OF THOSE WHO DIE WITHOUT CHRIST.
  • 00:07:59.210 --> 00:08:02.140
  • I WANT YOU TO WRITE THEM DOWN ON YOUR OUTLINE AND
  • 00:08:02.150 --> 00:08:04.190
  • REMEMBER THEM FOREVER.
  • 00:08:04.200 --> 00:08:05.220
  • WHAT DID JESUS TEACH US ABOUT HELL?
  • 00:08:05.230 --> 00:08:07.160
  • FIRST OF ALL, JESUS TAUGHT THAT HELL IS AN ACTUAL LOCATION.
  • 00:08:07.170 --> 00:08:12.100
  • IT IS AN ACTUAL LOCATION.
  • 00:08:12.110 --> 00:08:13.210
  • AGAIN, IT'S POPULAR TODAY TO TRY THEORIZE:
  • 00:08:13.220 --> 00:08:16.060
  • WELL, HELL IS REALLY JUST A STATE OF MIND.
  • 00:08:16.070 --> 00:08:18.150
  • IT'S NOT AN ACTUAL PLACE.
  • 00:08:18.160 --> 00:08:21.010
  • AND YET IF YOU BELIEVE THAT HEAVEN IS AN ACTUAL
  • 00:08:21.020 --> 00:08:23.260
  • LOCATION, YOU LOGICALLY HAVE TO ACCEPT THAT HELL
  • 00:08:23.270 --> 00:08:27.120
  • IS A REAL LOCATION AS WELL.
  • 00:08:27.130 --> 00:08:29.190
  • WHY DO I SAY THAT?
  • 00:08:29.200 --> 00:08:30.150
  • LISTEN TO JESUS' WORDS IN MATTHEW 25:46.
  • 00:08:30.160 --> 00:08:34.110
  • THESE ARE THE WORDS OF THE JUDGMENT HE PRONOUNCES AT
  • 00:08:34.120 --> 00:08:36.210
  • HIS SECOND COMING.
  • 00:08:36.220 --> 00:08:38.010
  • HE SAYS IN VERSE 46, "THESE," THAT IS THE
  • 00:08:38.020 --> 00:08:40.230
  • UNRIGHTEOUS, "WILL GO AWAY INTO ETERNAL PUNISHMENT,
  • 00:08:40.240 --> 00:08:45.210
  • BUT THE RIGHTEOUS WILL GO INTO ETERNAL LIFE."
  • 00:08:45.220 --> 00:08:50.130
  • NOW HERE IS THE POINT, THE UNRIGHTEOUS ARE GOING TO
  • 00:08:50.140 --> 00:08:53.280
  • ETERNAL PUNISHMENT, THE RIGHTEOUS TO ETERNAL LIFE
  • 00:08:53.290 --> 00:08:56.140
  • - YOU CAN'T HAVE ONE GROUP OF PEOPLE AT THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:08:56.150 --> 00:08:59.130
  • GOING TO AN ACTUAL LOCATION,
  • 00:08:59.140 --> 00:09:01.050
  • HEAVEN; AND HAVING ANOTHER GROUP GOING INTO
  • 00:09:01.060 --> 00:09:04.080
  • A STATE OF MIND.
  • 00:09:04.090 --> 00:09:06.000
  • IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.
  • 00:09:06.010 --> 00:09:07.140
  • EITHER THEY'RE BOTH FIGURATIVE STATES OF MIND,
  • 00:09:07.150 --> 00:09:10.030
  • OR THEY'RE BOTH LITERAL LOCATIONS.
  • 00:09:10.040 --> 00:09:12.240
  • JESUS TAUGHT THAT HELL WAS AN ACTUAL PLACE.
  • 00:09:12.250 --> 00:09:16.040
  • IN FACT YOU'LL NOTICE THAT IN THE GREEK NEW TESTAMENT
  • 00:09:16.050 --> 00:09:19.010
  • THERE'RE ACTUALLY THREE WORDS FOR HELL THAT ARE
  • 00:09:19.020 --> 00:09:22.130
  • ALL TRANSLATED BY THE GENERIC WORD IN OUR
  • 00:09:22.140 --> 00:09:24.170
  • ENGLISH LANGUAGE "HELL".
  • 00:09:24.180 --> 00:09:26.070
  • THE FIRST ONE IS TARTARUS.
  • 00:09:26.080 --> 00:09:29.230
  • THAT'S NOT TARTAR SAUCE, THAT'S TARTAROS.
  • 00:09:29.240 --> 00:09:32.260
  • IT'S ACTUALLY USED ONLY ONE TIME IN THE GREEK NEW
  • 00:09:32.270 --> 00:09:34.240
  • TESTAMENT IN 2 PETER 2:4; AND IT REFERS TO A SPECIAL
  • 00:09:34.250 --> 00:09:39.140
  • PLACE OF JUDGMENT FOR THE WICKED ANGELS.
  • 00:09:39.150 --> 00:09:42.090
  • YOU SAY: WELL WHAT WICKED ANGELS ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:09:42.100 --> 00:09:45.020
  • IT'S THE ONES REFERRING TO IN JUDE 6,
  • 00:09:45.030 --> 00:09:48.020
  • "AND THE ANGELS WHO DID NOT KEEP THEIR OWN DOMAIN,
  • 00:09:48.030 --> 00:09:51.080
  • BUT ABANDONED THEIR PROPER ABODE;
  • 00:09:51.090 --> 00:09:53.160
  • HE HAS KEPT IN ETERNAL BONDS UNDER DARKNESS FOR
  • 00:09:53.170 --> 00:09:56.260
  • THE JUDGMENT OF THE GREAT DAY."
  • 00:09:56.270 --> 00:09:58.230
  • THIS IS A REFERENCE TO GENESIS 6 THAT TELLS US
  • 00:09:58.240 --> 00:10:01.110
  • ABOUT A GROUP OF ANGELS THAT LEFT HEAVEN.
  • 00:10:01.120 --> 00:10:03.270
  • THEY WERE CALLED THE SONS OF GOD,
  • 00:10:03.280 --> 00:10:05.170
  • AND THEY COHABITATED WITH HUMAN WOMEN ON EARTH,
  • 00:10:05.180 --> 00:10:08.160
  • THE DAUGHTERS OF MEN; AND BECAUSE OF THAT WICKEDNESS
  • 00:10:08.170 --> 00:10:11.240
  • THEY WENT AFTER STRANGE FLESH.
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:14.050
  • BECAUSE OF THAT GOD PUNISHED THEM AND CONFINED
  • 00:10:14.060 --> 00:10:17.120
  • THEM TO THIS PLACE CALLED TARTAROS;
  • 00:10:17.130 --> 00:10:20.010
  • AND IT'S SOMETIMES TRANSLATED TO HELL
  • 00:10:20.020 --> 00:10:21.250
  • IN YOUR ENGLISH BIBLE.
  • 00:10:21.260 --> 00:10:23.080
  • THE SECOND WORD THAT IS ALSO TRANSLATED HELL IN
  • 00:10:23.090 --> 00:10:26.090
  • THE BIBLE IS THE WORD GEHENNA.
  • 00:10:26.100 --> 00:10:29.050
  • GEHENNA.
  • 00:10:29.060 --> 00:10:30.030
  • AND THIS IS THE MOST POPULAR TERM FOR HELL.
  • 00:10:30.040 --> 00:10:32.260
  • IT'S USED 12 TIMES IN THE GREEK NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 00:10:32.270 --> 00:10:35.200
  • AND IT'S SOMETIMES TRANSLATED "THE LAKE OF FIRE."
  • 00:10:35.210 --> 00:10:38.280
  • THIS IS THE ETERNAL RESIDENCE OF THE UNSAVED.
  • 00:10:38.290 --> 00:10:44.100
  • THE ETERNAL RESIDENCE OF THE UNSAVED.
  • 00:10:44.110 --> 00:10:47.120
  • NOW THE TERM GEHENNA ACTUALLY COMES FROM AN
  • 00:10:47.130 --> 00:10:49.290
  • ACTUAL LOCATION ON EARTH - THE VALLEY OF HINNOM,
  • 00:10:50.000 --> 00:10:53.150
  • WHICH IS JUST SOUTH OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:10:53.160 --> 00:10:55.260
  • IN THE OLD TESTAMENT TIMES,
  • 00:10:55.270 --> 00:10:57.100
  • UNDER THE EVIL ISRAELITE KINGS AHAZ AND MANASSEH,
  • 00:10:57.110 --> 00:11:01.090
  • IT WAS THE PLACE THAT ISRAELITES WOULD ACTUALLY
  • 00:11:01.100 --> 00:11:04.090
  • OFFER THEIR CHILDREN AS BURNT SACRIFICES TO GOD.
  • 00:11:04.100 --> 00:11:07.260
  • A HORRIFIC PLACE.
  • 00:11:07.270 --> 00:11:09.180
  • LATER ON IT BECAME A GARBAGE DUMP.
  • 00:11:09.190 --> 00:11:11.260
  • IT WAS A PLACE WHERE THE CITY WOULD BURN ITS REFUSE
  • 00:11:11.270 --> 00:11:14.100
  • DAY AND NIGHT, DAY AND NIGHT.
  • 00:11:14.110 --> 00:11:16.180
  • IT WAS ALSO WHERE, IN THAT REFUSE,
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:19.110
  • WOULD BE THE BODIES OF EXECUTED CRIMINALS.
  • 00:11:19.120 --> 00:11:23.130
  • THE STENCH THERE WAS UNIMAGINABLE.
  • 00:11:23.140 --> 00:11:26.220
  • YOU CAN IMAGINE THE SEWAGE AND DEAD BODIES BEING
  • 00:11:26.230 --> 00:11:30.270
  • OFFERED UP IN A FLAME THAT NEVER STOPPED.
  • 00:11:30.280 --> 00:11:34.280
  • ONE CAN HARDLY IMAGINE SPENDING FIVE MINUTES
  • 00:11:34.290 --> 00:11:37.040
  • THERE, MUCH LESS ALL ETERNITY.
  • 00:11:37.050 --> 00:11:40.160
  • BUT THAT IS THE PHRASE JESUS AND THE NEW
  • 00:11:40.170 --> 00:11:42.240
  • TESTAMENT WRITERS USED TO DESCRIBE THE ETERNAL
  • 00:11:42.250 --> 00:11:46.070
  • DESTINY OF THOSE WHO DIE WITHOUT CHRIST.
  • 00:11:46.080 --> 00:11:49.290
  • REMEMBER REVELATION 20:15, "AND IF ANY MAN'S NAME WAS
  • 00:11:50.000 --> 00:11:53.020
  • NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE,
  • 00:11:53.030 --> 00:11:55.020
  • HE WAS CAST INTO..."
  • 00:11:55.030 --> 00:11:56.020
  • WHERE?
  • 00:11:56.030 --> 00:11:57.030
  • GEHENNA, "...THE LAKE OF FIRE" TO BE TORMENTED DAY
  • 00:11:57.040 --> 00:12:00.220
  • AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER.
  • 00:12:00.230 --> 00:12:04.010
  • THE THIRD WORD THAT IS TRANSLATED SOMETIMES HELL
  • 00:12:04.020 --> 00:12:06.240
  • IN YOUR BIBLE IS THE WORD HADES.
  • 00:12:06.250 --> 00:12:09.140
  • HADES, AND THAT'S THE WORD WE FIND HERE IN LUKE 16.
  • 00:12:09.150 --> 00:12:13.020
  • NOW HADES IS THE TEMPORARY PLACE OF THE UNSAVED.
  • 00:12:13.030 --> 00:12:17.280
  • WHEN AN UNBELIEVER DIES, HE GOES NOT TO THE LAKE OF
  • 00:12:17.290 --> 00:12:21.160
  • FIRE, THAT'S HIS FINAL JUDGMENT;
  • 00:12:21.170 --> 00:12:23.040
  • HE GOES TO THIS TEMPORARY PLACE.
  • 00:12:23.050 --> 00:12:25.000
  • IT'S NOT PURGATORY, IT IS A PLACE
  • 00:12:25.010 --> 00:12:27.130
  • OF ACTUAL SUFFERING.
  • 00:12:27.140 --> 00:12:28.190
  • THE REASON I MENTION THIS IS IN THIS PARABLE JESUS
  • 00:12:28.200 --> 00:12:31.190
  • IS TALKING ABOUT THE IMMEDIATE PLACE
  • 00:12:31.200 --> 00:12:33.270
  • OF THE UNSAVED - HADES.
  • 00:12:33.280 --> 00:12:35.090
  • WHEN THE RICH MAN DIED, HE WENT INTO HADES.
  • 00:12:35.100 --> 00:12:39.020
  • BUT THE THINGS WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THAT ARE
  • 00:12:39.030 --> 00:12:40.240
  • TRUE OF HADES ARE ALSO TRUE OF THE ETERNAL
  • 00:12:40.250 --> 00:12:44.220
  • DWELLING PLACE FOR THE UNSAVED -
  • 00:12:44.230 --> 00:12:46.140
  • THE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:12:46.150 --> 00:12:48.070
  • WHAT DID JESUS TEACH ABOUT THESE PLACES?
  • 00:12:48.080 --> 00:12:50.030
  • NOT ONLY IS HELL AN ACTUAL LOCATION,
  • 00:12:50.040 --> 00:12:52.010
  • SECONDLY, HELL IS A PLACE OF PHYSICAL TORMENT.
  • 00:12:52.020 --> 00:12:56.060
  • IT'S A PLACE OF ACTUAL PHYSICAL SUFFERING.
  • 00:12:56.070 --> 00:12:59.060
  • LOOK AT VERSE 24, "THE RICH MAN CRIED OUT,
  • 00:12:59.070 --> 00:13:01.290
  • AND HE SAID, 'FATHER ABRAHAM,
  • 00:13:02.000 --> 00:13:03.110
  • HAVE MERCY ON ME; AND SEND LAZARUS TO DIP THE TIP OF
  • 00:13:03.120 --> 00:13:07.110
  • HIS FINGER IN WATER AND COOL OFF MY TONGUE,
  • 00:13:07.120 --> 00:13:10.080
  • FOR I AM IN AGONY IN THIS FLAME."
  • 00:13:10.090 --> 00:13:15.260
  • SOME PEOPLE TRY TO TURN DOWN THE TEMPERATURE OF
  • 00:13:17.130 --> 00:13:20.200
  • HELL, SO TO SPEAK, BY SAYING: WELL,
  • 00:13:20.210 --> 00:13:24.070
  • NO LOVING GOD COULD ACTUALLY ETERNALLY TORMENT PEOPLE.
  • 00:13:24.080 --> 00:13:29.190
  • THAT IS JUST UNTHINKABLE.
  • 00:13:29.200 --> 00:13:31.200
  • SO MANY PEOPLE IN ATTEMPT TO DIMINISH THE REALITY OF
  • 00:13:31.210 --> 00:13:34.040
  • HELL EMBRACE THE DOCTRINE OF ANNIHILATIONISM.
  • 00:13:34.050 --> 00:13:37.150
  • THE IDEA THAT UNBELIEVERS AFTER THEY ARE JUDGED,
  • 00:13:37.160 --> 00:13:40.200
  • THEY'RE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE WHERE THEY ARE
  • 00:13:40.210 --> 00:13:42.190
  • INSTANTANEOUSLY DESTROYED.
  • 00:13:42.200 --> 00:13:45.140
  • THAT IS, THEY CEASE TO EXIST.
  • 00:13:45.150 --> 00:13:48.070
  • TURN OVER TO REVELATION 19:20 WHERE I CAN SHOW YOU
  • 00:13:48.080 --> 00:13:52.070
  • CAN SHOW YOU WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY THAT UNBELIEVERS
  • 00:13:52.080 --> 00:13:55.050
  • DO NOT SIMPLY PERISH WHEN THEY LAND IN THE LAKE OF FIRE.
  • 00:13:55.060 --> 00:13:58.250
  • REVELATION 19:20.
  • 00:13:58.260 --> 00:14:00.030
  • THE SETTING FOR THIS, REMEMBER,
  • 00:14:00.040 --> 00:14:01.140
  • IS THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST;
  • 00:14:01.150 --> 00:14:02.280
  • AND NOTICE WHAT HE DOES TO THE BEAST,
  • 00:14:02.290 --> 00:14:04.190
  • THAT IS THE ANTICHRIST AND THE FALSE PROPHET,
  • 00:14:04.200 --> 00:14:07.050
  • "AND THE BEAST WAS SEIZED AND WITH HIM THE FALSE
  • 00:14:07.060 --> 00:14:09.200
  • PROPHET WHO PERFORMED SIGNS AT HIS PRESENCE,
  • 00:14:09.210 --> 00:14:12.020
  • BY WHICH HE DECEIVED THOSE WHO HAVE RECEIVED THE MARK
  • 00:14:12.030 --> 00:14:14.020
  • OF THE BEAST, AND THOSE WHO WORSHIPPED HIS IMAGE.
  • 00:14:14.030 --> 00:14:16.180
  • THESE TWO WERE THROWN ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF
  • 00:14:16.190 --> 00:14:21.050
  • FIRE WHICH BURNS WITH BRIMSTONE."
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:25.070
  • NOW, TURN OVER TO CHAPTER 20 VERSE 10.
  • 00:14:26.030 --> 00:14:28.280
  • IT'S 1.000 YEARS LATER, AFTER THE MILLENNIUM,
  • 00:14:28.290 --> 00:14:31.270
  • AFTER THE FINAL REBELLION AGAINST GOD;
  • 00:14:31.280 --> 00:14:34.080
  • AND WHAT DOES GOD DO?
  • 00:14:34.090 --> 00:14:35.230
  • "AND THE DEVIL WHO DECEIVED THEM WAS THROWN
  • 00:14:35.240 --> 00:14:39.190
  • INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE WHERE THE BEAST
  • 00:14:39.200 --> 00:14:44.180
  • AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE ALSO."
  • 00:14:44.190 --> 00:14:49.030
  • THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET WERE THROWN IN
  • 00:14:49.040 --> 00:14:50.130
  • THERE 1.000 YEARS AHEAD OF TIME.
  • 00:14:50.140 --> 00:14:52.240
  • BUT WHEN IT'S SATAN'S TURN TO BE THROWN INTO LAKE OF
  • 00:14:52.250 --> 00:14:55.060
  • FIRE, JOHN SAYS THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE
  • 00:14:55.070 --> 00:14:59.130
  • STILL ALIVE.
  • 00:14:59.140 --> 00:15:01.040
  • AFTER 1.000 YEARS OF SUFFERING THEY ARE STILL
  • 00:15:01.050 --> 00:15:05.020
  • THERE, "AND THEY WILL BE TORMENTED," VERSE 10 SAYS,
  • 00:15:05.030 --> 00:15:08.210
  • "DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER."
  • 00:15:08.220 --> 00:15:14.280
  • VERSE 15 SAYS FOR THE UNSAVED,
  • 00:15:14.290 --> 00:15:18.050
  • "IF ANY MAN'S NAME WAS NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK
  • 00:15:18.060 --> 00:15:20.050
  • OF LIFE, HE WAS ALSO CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE" TO
  • 00:15:20.060 --> 00:15:24.260
  • BE TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER.
  • 00:15:24.270 --> 00:15:29.230
  • YOU'VE HEARD ME SAY BEFORE THAT WORD TRANSLATED
  • 00:15:29.240 --> 00:15:32.250
  • "FOREVER AND EVER" IS THE GREEK WORD IONOS.
  • 00:15:32.260 --> 00:15:36.190
  • AND INTERESTINGLY, IT IS THE VERY SAME WORD,
  • 00:15:36.200 --> 00:15:39.290
  • THE WORD THAT REFERS TO THE ETERNALITY OF HELL
  • 00:15:40.000 --> 00:15:42.290
  • THAT IS USED TO DESCRIBE THE ETERNALITY OF HEAVEN
  • 00:15:43.000 --> 00:15:46.220
  • AS WELL.
  • 00:15:46.230 --> 00:15:47.280
  • IN REVELATION 22:5 JOHN SAYS,
  • 00:15:47.290 --> 00:15:50.160
  • "AND THERE SHALL NO LONGER BE ANY NIGHT;
  • 00:15:50.170 --> 00:15:52.230
  • AND THEY SHALL NOT HAVE NEED OF THE LIGHT OF THE
  • 00:15:52.240 --> 00:15:54.250
  • DAY, OR THE LIGHT OF THE SUN BECAUSE THE LORD GOD
  • 00:15:54.260 --> 00:15:57.270
  • SHALL ILLUMINE THEM; AND THEY SHALL REIGN FOR EVER AND EVER."
  • 00:15:57.280 --> 00:16:02.280
  • DO YOU SEE IT?
  • 00:16:02.290 --> 00:16:03.290
  • SAME WORD THAT DESCRIBES THE ETERNALITY OF HELL IS
  • 00:16:04.000 --> 00:16:07.120
  • USED TO DESCRIBE THE ETERNALITY OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:16:07.130 --> 00:16:11.100
  • IF YOU END UP IN HELL AFTER YOU HAVE SPENT 10
  • 00:16:11.110 --> 00:16:15.170
  • BILLION, TRILLION YEARS IN THAT AWFUL PLACE YOU WILL
  • 00:16:15.180 --> 00:16:21.210
  • NOT HAVE REDUCED BY ONE SECOND THE TIME YOU HAVE
  • 00:16:21.220 --> 00:16:25.240
  • LEFT TO SPEND THERE.
  • 00:16:25.250 --> 00:16:29.020
  • HELL IS A PLACE OF ETERNAL SUFFERING.
  • 00:16:29.030 --> 00:16:33.180
  • NUMBER THREE, HELL IS FILLED WITH INDESCRIBABLE LONELINESS.
  • 00:16:33.190 --> 00:16:39.090
  • MATTHEW 8:12 JESUS SAID, "BUT THE SONS OF THE
  • 00:16:39.100 --> 00:16:42.040
  • KINGDOMS SHALL BE CAST INTO THE OUTER DARKNESS;
  • 00:16:42.050 --> 00:16:46.070
  • AND IN THAT PLACE THERE WILL BE WEEPING
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:49.120
  • AND GNASHING OF TEETH."
  • 00:16:49.130 --> 00:16:50.270
  • HAVE YOU EVER HEARD ANYBODY SAY BEFORE:
  • 00:16:51.270 --> 00:16:53.090
  • OH, I DON'T CARE ABOUT GOING TO HELL THAT'S WHERE ALL
  • 00:16:53.100 --> 00:16:56.010
  • MY FRIENDS ARE GOING TO BE.
  • 00:16:56.020 --> 00:16:57.290
  • THEY MAY BE THERE WITH YOU,
  • 00:16:58.000 --> 00:17:00.070
  • YOU WON'T BE AWARE OF IT BECAUSE HELL IS A PLACE OF
  • 00:17:00.080 --> 00:17:03.120
  • DARKNESS, WHICH MEANS IT IS A PLACE OF
  • 00:17:03.130 --> 00:17:07.050
  • INDESCRIBABLE LONELINESS.
  • 00:17:07.060 --> 00:17:09.190
  • YOU SAY: HOW COULD GOD EVER DO SOMETHING
  • 00:17:11.150 --> 00:17:13.080
  • SO AWFUL TO PEOPLE?
  • 00:17:13.090 --> 00:17:14.100
  • NUMBER FOUR, JESUS SAID HELL IS A DESERVED JUDGMENT.
  • 00:17:14.110 --> 00:17:18.170
  • IT'S A DESERVED JUDGMENT.
  • 00:17:18.180 --> 00:17:20.290
  • NOTICE HOW AFTER THE RICH MAN BEGGED FOR RELIEF FROM
  • 00:17:21.000 --> 00:17:25.080
  • THE AGONY OF HELL, NOTICE HOW ABRAHAM
  • 00:17:25.090 --> 00:17:27.180
  • RESPONDS TO HIS REQUEST.
  • 00:17:27.190 --> 00:17:29.000
  • LUKE 16:25, "BUT ABRAHAM SAID,
  • 00:17:29.010 --> 00:17:31.240
  • 'CHILD, REMEMBER THAT DURING YOUR LIFE YOU
  • 00:17:31.250 --> 00:17:34.090
  • RECEIVED YOUR GOOD THINGS, AND LIKEWISE LAZARUS BAD
  • 00:17:34.100 --> 00:17:37.030
  • THINGS; BUT NOW HE IS BEING COMFORTED THERE,
  • 00:17:37.040 --> 00:17:39.290
  • AND YOU ARE IN AGONY.'" VERSE 27,
  • 00:17:40.000 --> 00:17:42.060
  • "AND THE RICH MAN SAID, 'THEN I BEG YOU,
  • 00:17:42.070 --> 00:17:43.290
  • ABRAHAM, THAT YOU MIGHT SEND HIM TO MY FATHER'S
  • 00:17:44.000 --> 00:17:47.070
  • HOUSE, FOR I HAVE FIVE BROTHERS,
  • 00:17:47.080 --> 00:17:49.260
  • THAT HE MAY WARN THEM, LEST THEY SHOULD COME TO
  • 00:17:49.270 --> 00:17:52.230
  • THIS PLACE OF TORMENT.'" ISN'T THAT INTERESTING?
  • 00:17:52.240 --> 00:17:54.290
  • EVEN AN UNBELIEVER IN HELL,
  • 00:17:55.000 --> 00:17:57.210
  • SENSING THE REALITY OF HELL,
  • 00:17:57.220 --> 00:17:59.140
  • DESIRES THAT HIS LOST BROTHERS BE SAVED.
  • 00:17:59.150 --> 00:18:02.270
  • FATHER ABRAHAM, PLEASE SEND SOMEONE TO GO AND
  • 00:18:04.120 --> 00:18:07.030
  • WARN MY UNBELIEVING BROTHERS.
  • 00:18:07.040 --> 00:18:09.130
  • VERSE 29, "ABRAHAM SAID, 'THEY HAVE MOSES AND THE
  • 00:18:09.140 --> 00:18:12.110
  • PROPHETS.'" THAT IS, THEY HAVE THE SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:18:12.120 --> 00:18:14.220
  • "'LET THEM HEAR THEM.' BUT THE RICH MAN SAID,
  • 00:18:14.230 --> 00:18:17.280
  • 'NO, FATHER ABRAHAM, BUT IF SOMEONE GOES TO THEM
  • 00:18:17.290 --> 00:18:20.150
  • FROM THE DEAD, THEY WILL REPENT!' BUT ABRAHAM SAID
  • 00:18:20.160 --> 00:18:24.130
  • 'IF THEY DO NOT LISTEN TO MOSES AND THE
  • 00:18:24.140 --> 00:18:26.060
  • PROPHETS, NEITHER WILL THEY BE PERSUADED IF
  • 00:18:26.070 --> 00:18:28.190
  • SOMEONE RISES FROM THE DEAD.'"
  • 00:18:28.200 --> 00:18:32.080
  • OF COURSE, THAT WAS PROPHETIC.
  • 00:18:32.090 --> 00:18:34.060
  • WHEN JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD PEOPLE STILL REFUSED
  • 00:18:34.070 --> 00:18:38.050
  • TO BELIEVE IN HIM.
  • 00:18:38.060 --> 00:18:40.270
  • WHAT THIS PASSAGE IS TEACHING US IS THERE IS
  • 00:18:40.280 --> 00:18:43.250
  • NOBODY WHO IS IN HELL BECAUSE OF GOD'S CHOICE.
  • 00:18:43.260 --> 00:18:47.160
  • PEOPLE ARE IN HELL BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN CHOICE.
  • 00:18:47.170 --> 00:18:51.230
  • AND THAT IS THE CHOICE TO REJECT THE KNOWLEDGE,
  • 00:18:51.240 --> 00:18:55.030
  • THE SUFFICIENT KNOWLEDGE THAT COMES FROM GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:18:55.040 --> 00:18:59.020
  • EVERYONE WHO ENDS UP IN HELL IS THERE
  • 00:18:59.030 --> 00:19:02.000
  • BY HIS OWN CHOICE.
  • 00:19:02.010 --> 00:19:04.010
  • HELL IS A DESERVED JUDGMENT.
  • 00:19:04.020 --> 00:19:07.290
  • NUMBER FIVE, AND MOST DISTURBING,
  • 00:19:08.000 --> 00:19:11.040
  • HELL IS A FOREVER DESTINATION.
  • 00:19:11.050 --> 00:19:15.190
  • HELL IS A FOREVER DESTINATION.
  • 00:19:15.200 --> 00:19:17.070
  • YOU KNOW THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SUGGEST
  • 00:19:17.080 --> 00:19:19.020
  • THAT: OK, I BELIEVE HELL'S A REAL LOCATION,
  • 00:19:19.030 --> 00:19:21.100
  • I EVEN BELIEVE IT'S A HORRIBLE PLACE BUT IT'S
  • 00:19:21.110 --> 00:19:23.090
  • ONLY TEMPORARY BECAUSE EVENTUALLY EVEN THE
  • 00:19:23.100 --> 00:19:26.030
  • RESIDENTS OF HELL WILL BE CONVICTED OF THEIR SIN AND
  • 00:19:26.040 --> 00:19:29.010
  • THEY WILL HAVE A SECOND CHANCE TO ACCEPT CHRIST.
  • 00:19:29.020 --> 00:19:31.040
  • DOES GOD ALLOW FOR THAT POSSIBILITY?
  • 00:19:31.050 --> 00:19:34.020
  • LOOK AGAIN AT LUKE 16:26.
  • 00:19:34.030 --> 00:19:37.050
  • "BESIDES ALL OF THIS, BETWEEN US AND YOU THERE
  • 00:19:37.060 --> 00:19:40.190
  • IS A GREAT CHASM FIXED IN ORDER THAT THOSE WHO WISH
  • 00:19:40.200 --> 00:19:44.260
  • TO COME OVER FROM HERE TO YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE,
  • 00:19:44.270 --> 00:19:48.190
  • AND THAT NONE OF YOU MAY CROSS OVER FROM THERE TO US."
  • 00:19:48.200 --> 00:19:55.040
  • ONCE YOU DIE YOUR ETERNAL DESTINATION IS JUST THAT -
  • 00:19:55.050 --> 00:20:01.030
  • ETERNAL.
  • 00:20:02.160 --> 00:20:04.190
  • HEBREWS 9:27 SAYS IT'S APPOINTED UNTO EVERY MAN
  • 00:20:04.200 --> 00:20:07.110
  • ONCE TO DIE AND THEN THE JUDGMENT.
  • 00:20:07.120 --> 00:20:10.170
  • BEFORE YOU DIE YOU HAVE ALL KINDS OF OPPORTUNITIES
  • 00:20:10.180 --> 00:20:13.100
  • TO CHANGE, TO MAKE DIFFERENT CHOICES;
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:15.270
  • BUT ONCE YOU DIE ALL OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHANGE
  • 00:20:15.280 --> 00:20:20.160
  • ARE OVER.
  • 00:20:20.170 --> 00:20:22.180
  • LISTEN ONCE AGAIN FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF A NEW
  • 00:20:22.190 --> 00:20:26.040
  • OCCUPANT IN HELL.
  • 00:20:26.050 --> 00:20:28.220
  • AS TIME PASSES HE BEGINS TO THINK AND TO DO WHAT
  • 00:20:28.230 --> 00:20:32.000
  • THE RICH MAN DID.
  • 00:20:32.010 --> 00:20:34.170
  • HIS FIRST THOUGHTS ARE OF HOPE.
  • 00:20:34.180 --> 00:20:37.210
  • YOU SEE HE STILL THINKS AS HE DID ON EARTH WHERE HE
  • 00:20:37.220 --> 00:20:40.150
  • KEPT HIMSELF ALIVE WITH HOPE.
  • 00:20:40.160 --> 00:20:43.020
  • WHEN THINGS GOT BAD, HE FOUND A WAY OUT.
  • 00:20:43.030 --> 00:20:45.180
  • IF HE FELT PAIN, HE TOOK MEDICINE.
  • 00:20:45.190 --> 00:20:47.060
  • IF HE WAS HUNGRY, HE ATE FOOD.
  • 00:20:47.070 --> 00:20:49.000
  • IF HE LOST HIS LOVE, THERE WAS MORE LOVE TO BE FOUND.
  • 00:20:49.010 --> 00:20:53.020
  • AND SO HE CAST ABOUT IN HIS MIND FOR A PLAN TO
  • 00:20:53.030 --> 00:20:56.060
  • APPLY TO THE HOPE THAT IS BUILDING IN HIS CHEST.
  • 00:20:56.070 --> 00:21:00.190
  • OF COURSE, HE THINKS, JESUS THE SON OF GOD HE
  • 00:21:00.200 --> 00:21:04.120
  • CAN GET ME OUT OF THIS.
  • 00:21:04.130 --> 00:21:06.130
  • HE CRIES OUT WITH A SURGE: JESUS!
  • 00:21:06.140 --> 00:21:09.140
  • JESUS!
  • 00:21:09.150 --> 00:21:10.040
  • YOU WERE RIGHT!
  • 00:21:10.050 --> 00:21:11.040
  • PLEASE SAVE ME JESUS!
  • 00:21:11.050 --> 00:21:13.260
  • HE WAITS BREATHING HARD WITH DESPERATION.
  • 00:21:13.270 --> 00:21:18.130
  • THE SOUND OF HIS VOICE SLIPS INTO THE DARKNESS
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:22.030
  • AND IS LOST.
  • 00:21:22.040 --> 00:21:23.250
  • HE TRIES AGAIN: I BELIEVE JESUS!
  • 00:21:23.260 --> 00:21:27.150
  • I BELIEVE!
  • 00:21:27.160 --> 00:21:28.140
  • PLEASE GIVE ME A CHANCE, JESUS!
  • 00:21:28.150 --> 00:21:30.180
  • I BELIEVE!
  • 00:21:30.190 --> 00:21:31.170
  • SAVE ME FROM THIS HORRIBLE PLACE!
  • 00:21:31.180 --> 00:21:34.120
  • AGAIN THE DARKNESS SMOTHERS HIS WORDS.
  • 00:21:34.130 --> 00:21:38.090
  • YOU SEE, THIS SINNER IS NOT UNIQUE.
  • 00:21:38.100 --> 00:21:41.290
  • IN HELL EVERYONE'S A BELIEVER.
  • 00:21:42.000 --> 00:21:49.120
  • LET ME MOVE FROM THE ACADEMIC
  • 00:21:49.130 --> 00:21:53.090
  • TO THE VERY PRACTICAL.
  • 00:21:53.100 --> 00:21:57.240
  • DO YOU KNOW WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY THAT WHEN YOU
  • 00:21:57.250 --> 00:22:03.210
  • DIE YOU'RE NOT GOING TO END UP IN THIS TERRIBLE
  • 00:22:03.220 --> 00:22:07.020
  • PLACE JESUS THE SON OF GOD TALKED ABOUT?
  • 00:22:07.030 --> 00:22:11.070
  • ARE YOU SURE?
  • 00:22:11.080 --> 00:22:13.050
  • DO YOU HAVE ABSOLUTE ASSURANCE THAT WHEN YOU
  • 00:22:13.060 --> 00:22:15.060
  • AWAKEN YOU'LL AWAKEN IN THAT REAL PLACE OF THE
  • 00:22:15.070 --> 00:22:18.150
  • PRESENCE OF GOD?
  • 00:22:18.160 --> 00:22:20.160
  • ONE WRITER SAID: FIVE SECONDS AFTER YOU DIE,
  • 00:22:21.150 --> 00:22:27.090
  • YOU WILL EITHER BE EXPERIENCING ETERNAL BLISS
  • 00:22:27.100 --> 00:22:31.150
  • OR YOU WILL BE CATCHING YOUR FIRST GLIMPSE OF
  • 00:22:31.160 --> 00:22:35.110
  • UNIMAGINABLE HORROR.
  • 00:22:35.120 --> 00:22:38.120
  • EITHER WAY, YOUR DESTINY WILL BE IRREVOCABLY AND
  • 00:22:38.130 --> 00:22:43.010
  • ETERNALLY UNCHANGEABLE.
  • 00:22:43.020 --> 00:22:46.130
  • MUSIC
  • 00:22:46.140 --> 00:22:53.160
