I am the way and the truth and the life

by Pastor Sammy Haynes

Luke 16: 19. “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20. At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21. and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores. 22. “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. 23. In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. 24. So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’25. “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony.

Hell is a topic that most people stay clear of, and because of fear, just mentioning the word causes hearts to be afraid. Some have water downed the effects of living a sinful life, with an illusion. Illusion is defined as, something that deceives by producing a false or misleading impression of reality. This misleading impression of reality attacks the very character of God, with insults, trying to bring Him down to the level of man. Some have recorded their illusion saying hell is not real and if God is so good, how can He send someone to that place? The reality, the Lord sends no one to hell, we send ourselves, because of not repenting and believing in the death, burial, resurrection of Jesus Christ. Remember this; We are all the architect of our destiny and we will have no one to blame, but ourselves at judgement.

Jesus proclaimed in John 14:6. Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Jesus is the open door to Father God, so share the open door with others! Share your faith in Christ Jesus, to your family, the ones you meet in passing, and friends you may work with. Tell them to run from Hell, and choose life in Christ Jesus. Tell them hell is real, and once there, it will be a place with an addressed stamp, “FOREVER”. The rich man begged for a drop of water to cool his tongue in the place of torment, despair and distress. A place separated from the presence of God, created for Satan; Matthew 25:41. “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. So, don’t believe the lie, that hell is a myth or a make-believe place only in the minds of weak Christians! You won’t hook up with friends having a lifelong party, it will be a party called suffering. You don’t want to go there! Mark 8:36. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Make a choice and give your life to Jesus! Pray this prayer: Lord Jesus; I repent, and I ask you to forgive me, of all my sins! Come into my heart, I believe you are the Son of God who died and went to hell in my place. I believe, You rose from the dead, and now on the right hand of God, and coming back one day. I thank you for paying the price for me on that Cross. In Jesus Name! Amen!
