Are You Going To Hell? Or Heaven? It’s Your Choice…

Are you going to Hell? NeedEncouragement.comPlease contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.

When I was a teenager, I had some party friends who thought it would be cool to party in hell when they died. However, without a doubt, they were misinformed and ill-advised. It is essential to understand that going to hell is not something to joke about at all; it is a very real place ruled by Satan himself. But here’s the thing – heaven and eternal salvation are also very much real! We have been blessed with Jesus’s sacrifice, which allows us the opportunity to accept His gift of redemption and escape the condemnation of hell. You will find in Matthew 25:41, it explicitly states how those who reject Jesus will face everlasting fire prepared for Satan and his angels. However, just a few verses earlier in Matthew 25:33-34, we find that those who choose Jesus Christ will inherit the kingdom prepared for them since the foundation of the world itself! This shows us that God’s original purpose for hell was meant as ultimate destruction for Satan and his demons – not for humanity.

So if you ever find yourself worrying or feeling like you might be heading towards hell on your life’s journey, remember this: God allows U-turns! He offers mercy and forgiveness to all who earnestly seek Him. No matter what sins may burden your heart or how deeply involved you may feel with evil influences around you, know that there is hope. Cry out to God with sincerity; confess your sins before Him while turning away from everything that separates you from His love. God allows U-turns; cry out to God for mercy, confess your sins and turn away from the evil you are involved with. ~ Bill Greguska

Mark 9:43 If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out.

Who Are Those That Will Go To Hell?

In John 3:18b is clear that those who do not believe in Jesus Christ suffer eternal punishment, “whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”

Anyone who does not believe in Jesus Christ, who does not repent of their sin, and who does not ask for forgiveness and doomed to eternal separation from God and His holy angels.

What Did Jesus Say About Hell?

Jesus Told Us In The Bible What Going To Hell Is Like:

  • A place of eternal torment Luke 16:23
  • Of unquenchable fire Mark 9:43
  • Where the worm does not die Mark 9:48
  • Where people will gnash their teeth in anguish and regret, Matt. 13:42
  • From which there is no return, even to warn loved ones. Luke 16:19–31
  • Called hell a place of “outer darkness,” Matt. 25:30
  • And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name. Revelation 14:11 
  • And these will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and the glory of His power.  II Thessalonians 1:9
  • But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters, and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death. Revelation 21:8
  • And if your eye causes you to stumble, cast it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than having two eyes, to be cast into hell, where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched. Mark 9:47-48
  • And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Revelation 20:10
  • Compared it to “Gehenna” Matt. 10:28, which was a trash dump near Jerusalem where trash was burned, and maggots were everywhere. 
  • Jesus clearly warned us against the reality of being separated from God.



How Can I Not Go To Hell? What Is Hell?



There Are Many Definite Things To Understand About Going To Hell:

(Here Are 5 Of Them)


1. Hell is Real

Jesus spoke about hell a lot. He said, “But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.” (Luke 12:5). Jesus never implied that hell is an imaginary place because hell is real.



2. Hell Is Eternal

“And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” Revelation 20:10

Some people think that when Christians go to Heaven, non-believers won’t exist anymore. That isn’t true. The Bible tells us that we will either go to eternal punishment or eternal life. Matthew 25:46



3. A Person Definitely Can Not Escape Hell By Being Good

Too many people believe that they are good enough for Heaven and that only “evil” people go to hell. But what does the Bible say? John 3:18 says, “whoever doesn’t believe is condemned already.” It’s not about being good enough. It is about believing and accepting Jesus Christ.



4. There Are No Second Chances

Some people think they will get another chance to receive Jesus after they die. However, scripture doesn’t tell us we have another opportunity. Hebrews 9:27 says, “people are destined to die once and after that to face judgment.” There isn’t a second chance to accept Christ. That’s why “. . . now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation” 2 Corinthians 6:2.



5. God Is The Judge

Does it seem unfair that God would condemn someone to eternal punishment for their sins? Even the Bible writers asked: “What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God’s part? By no means!” Romans 9:14

All of us have sinned against God (Psalm 51:4). But God freely offers us eternal life with Him. All you have to do is accept Him. Praise God for sending Jesus to die on the cross to cleanse us of our sins. God made way for us to be washed and rescued from hell!

Now that you know your two eternal choices, you can tell your friends and family how to get to Heaven. Teach them a few facts about Heaven and pray they accept Jesus Christ so they can join you there!
