Topic: “Saved From Hell” Revelation 20:13-15
Speaker: Pastor Kevin Sadler
What is being saved? Define “Saved”
Saved and Salvation, is being rescued from a real place – Hell. Saved from what? – From the eternal torment in the lake of fire.
We are to have a burden for those who aren’t saved from hell and a gratitude that we are.
Death in verse 13 speaks of the grave.
- Death Statistics for people:
- Every day: 150,000 people die
- Every month: 45 million people die
- Every year: 55 million people die
What reality do they find beyond the grave?
Hades/hell – temporary holding place for unbelievers-unsaved men’s souls go – in the center of the earth.
Verse 14 – death and hates are cast into the lake of fire because there will no longer be a physical death. All unsaved will be in the lake of fire.
- The two deaths:
1st death = physical
2nd death = soul – eternal separation from God into the Lake of Fire.
Verse 15 – Who was not found in the book of life he was cast into the lake of fire…both body and soul.
There are only two destinations:
Heaven or Hell.
2 Thessalonians 1:8, 9
Genesis 4:13, 14 – the horror of separation from the Lord is seen in the life of Cain
Revelations 21:8 – The lost in hell will spend eternity among the wicked…for all eternity,,, among demons. Hell is insufferable punishment. There is no way out no escape route; no exists.
After you die your destination is sealed. There are no do-overs!
There is no salvation in hell. All the ways to hell are one-way streets. There is no hope of return. It is a “Dead End!”
Matt 25: 41; John 8:44
Recommended reading: “Wrath of God” by Thomas Hooker
Matt. 18: 8, 9; Rev. 19:20; Mark 9:43,45- unquenchable fire-hell
Matt. 13: 42, 50 – furnace of fire
Matt. 10:28, 22:13 – Hell is a place of “outer darkness”
Jude 1:13 – “Blackness of darkness forever”.
Gnashing- speaks of regret/remorse.
Luke 16:19-31 – Lazarus and the Rich Man in Abraham’s Bosom/Paradise.
Paradise “The Great Gulf fixed” Hades
Lazarus the Rich Man
The Rich man in Hades –
He could see, he could speak, he could remember – he had a consciousness.
Verse 26 of Luke 16 – a Great Gulf fixed – A chasm
Abraham reminds them there is nothing that can be done when they are dead. You are like this for all eternity.
Nothing but rest in one compartment and nothing but no rest in the other
Pain no pain
Joy gnashing and whaling
No thirst thirst
In the first compartment, you are honored by God for all eternity
Leviticus 9:22 thru 10:2
Romans 5:9 – Saved from wrath through Him – the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Jude 1:23; Psalm 107: 1-2
Give thanks unto the Lord.
God uses rescued people to rescue people!
