Rev. Robinson opened to Luke 16:19-31, “Seven Things in Hell that East Heflin Needs”. To start, we need to know that hell is real. Some think it’s not but it is. When we read of the rich man and Lazarus, we learn facts. When Lazarus died, he was carried by angels to heavenly bliss. When the rich man died, he lay in hell to feel, think, and reason. Two destinies that separated them. No in-between. We need to have compassion for lost souls and it requires confession for mercy of Jesus Christ. Once the gulf is fixed, there is no crossing it. No praying one over. That is it and the ones in hell will be tormented forever.
It takes commitment for us. There is no escape from hell. We see it in print!!! God’s Holy Word!! Communication from the Father and with the Father alone. The rich man prayed to Abraham, a saint. He is just a great person, he cannot save you. God saved him! Useless prayers to a saint. You must have Useful prayers to the Savior! The rich man had concern for his loved ones to send the dead to speak. Did not Jesus raise a man from the grave named Lazarus and no one listened to him?! Nothing else is written of him is there?
We must consent to be a witness now! Give your time or talent or just come and support. If you love God, you have a testimony. You cannot mock or fool God. Get your heart right today.
