If you are someone who believes that Jesus only spoke the truth, then the answer is. “Yes, hell is real.”
Matthew 10:28. “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Matthew 23:33 in speaking to the religious leaders of His day, Jesus said, “Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?”
In Revelation, Jesus also teaches about Satan and his followers’ final destination in the fiery pit.
And in Mark 9:43, He says, “If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, than to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched-“.
Strong and drastic words! The idea of cutting off my hand so I could not sin with it? It shows the seriousness of sin and the consequence of hell! I am definitely made aware of my need for the Savior Yeshua (Jesus)!
Thinking about a fiery hell where people are continually tortured by cruel demons (fallen angels, followers of Satan)…will make anyone want to be sure their eternal destination is heaven. We cannot get there on our own efforts or on religious theologies. We need Yeshau/Jesus. Are you certain you are going to heaven after you die? If you do not know, it is definitely time to find out! How can someone be sure? This is REALLY IMPORTANT! Our time on earth is only a spot in time compared to eternity. Now is the time to determine our eternal destination. Other things can wait. Do you know Yeshua/Jesus? Does He know you?
