Matthew 25:41 states that the cursed ones will go to everlasting fire reserved for the devil and his wicked angels. The implication of this verse for what Jesus suffered for three days and nights in the heart of the earth (Matthew 12:40; Acts 2:27) is truly amazing. Religious devils will screech and writhe in pain as they hear this truth. Jesus was our substitute even in hell!
Hell is a real place reserved for the wicked. It is worse than any manmade horror film. Do you think Halloween is the season for gross horror films on TV? Compared to the awful realities of hell, the evils portrayed in the movies are not even a drop in the bucket. Hell is worse than anything you can imagine, and it is for ETERNITY. I am forever grateful that Jesus went to hades for me so I do not have to go! God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever would believe on Him would not perish in hades and then the lake of fire for eternity. He had something GOOD in mind for the human family when He sent Jesus to the cross and to hell on behalf of guilty humanity. He wanted all who would believe on Jesus to receive His eternal life forevermore! (See John 3:16; 2 Peter 3:9.) He wanted to forgive all their sins and give them His righteousness. He wanted them to have an eternal abode with Him in heaven, and then in the new heavens and earth.
We look at some of these truths in this short podcast. I highly recommend you listen to, at least, the previous 15 messages to get the impact of what we are teaching from the Word of God. It is revolutionary! Be blessed with the Word and the power of the Holy Spirit!
Download the free book that was the basis for most of this study, “The Story of our Great Redemption: Beyond Human Imagination!” That's the link to get the free 194-page book. I've published five different versions on this subject since 1977. The latest 2013 version in Spanish,“Tres Días y Tres Noches en el Corazón de la Tierra” is 290 pages long. Obviously, the Lord taught me a few more things from His Word. That is the most complete version I have published. In its pages are many of the extra things I brought out in these podcasts that were not in previous versions. Get the free "Tres Días..." PDF here. Glory to God!
