There Is No Party In Hell
By Joel B.
To many people the idea of salvation seems silly. They think that it is “uncool” and that all the cool people will be partying in hell. I am here to tell you today that there is no party in hell. In fact, there will be nothing but eternal misery in hell. You won’t be able to hang out with your drinking buddies and you will surely wish you had not went down the miserable path leading to such agony. Let’s explore this further.
Matthew 8:12 describes hell as a place of outer darkness. It also says there will be weeping, and gnashing of teeth. That doesn’t sound like a party to me. It sounds like torment. Not a place I would want to go and surely not a place you should want to go. I mean, when I hear about torment that causes teeth to gnash, it reminds me of intense pain that makes you want to grind your teeth and that you wish would just end. However, there will be no end.
Matt 13:50 says that hell will be a furnace of fire. Can you imagine spending an eternity in a pitch black fire? This scripture also mentions the weeping, and gnashing of teeth again. This is no party. This is…well…hell. This is where the unconverted man goes who has decided to reject Christ.
Rev 14:10 tells us that there will be fire and brimstone. Have you ever smelled fire and brimstone? It’s not a pleasant smell, so I would imagine that hell has a rather foul odor to it that one would not want to experience. Not for a day, not for an hour, and not even for a minute.
Finally, Rev 14:14 tells us that hell never ends. You can’t beg your way out and you can’t bribe your way out. The chance to follow the Lord has ended. Heb 9:27 tells us that it is appointed on to man once to die and then the judgment. Once the judgment has fallen on you, then your end is sealed.
Friends, let’s be realistic. We all know that hell isn’t a party place. However, there is a place of eternal joy and that is with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If you haven’t accepted Him as your Lord and Savior I would encourage you to do so today. If you need help with this, please visit the Romans Road to Salvation page on the website.
