For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glorying of God the Father. There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved. And I saw a great white throne and the one (Jesus Christ) sitting on it. The earth and sky fled from his presence, but they (the condemned) found no place to hide. I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God’s throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books. And anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire. For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written: “As I live, says the Lord, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.” So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. (John 3:17, 18 NKJV) (Philippians 2:10-11 NLT) (Acts 4:12 NLT) (Revelation 20:11-12,15 NLT) (Romans 14:10b-12 NKJV)
The five Scripture portions above can paint a very horrid picture. All five together as one, tell the destiny of those who have condemned themselves to the final Hell, which is the Eternal Lake of Fire. To make it very clear, God sends no one to eternal punishment. The person themself sends themself to eternal punishment. If you have a hard time painting the picture in your mind, I will try with godly fear and trembling to help you. It’s 100% true whether you accept the outcome or not. Every person who does not bow down to Jesus on this earth and live with Him as The Lord of their life is ‘dead’ according to Scripture. At the Great White Throne they will be alone, totally naked, with nothing to hide behind. They will be unable to utter a word in defense. They will bow down to Jesus Christ and realize the love they missed out on. Regret will continually gnaw at them without rest. They will weep bitterly and gnash their teeth. As they go into outer darkness where they have sent themselves, they will have an eternity to think about the love and joy they missed out on. It will be even harder for those who made their luxury cars and designer clothes the lord of their life. Then there are those who trusted in false gods or man made religions. All they simply had to do was bow down to Jesus on this earth. But their pride destroyed them. They wanted to do it their way. They looked down on and ridicued the naiveness of Christians who tried to show them the way. Not one of the billions who send themself into the Eternal Lake of Fire will not wish infinite times over that they could go back and live their life over again and make the right decision. All they needed to do was go to the Mercy Seat and find forgiveness.
For those who have never bowed down to Jesus Christ on this earth, it’s not too late. Please go to the Mercy Seat today and you will never regret it!
For those of us who have bowed down to Jesus Christ on this earth, lets never develop a superior attitude because of our destiny. I have met many who have. To have joy, yes (Luke 10:20). But superior attitude, no. For we are sternly warned in Scripture, “And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering. Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives.” (Jude 1:22, 23 NLT)
