The Journey Reading Plan

Addressing Questions: Unseen Realities

You might be surprised to learn that Jesus spoke more about the reality of hell than anyone else in the Bible. Hell is a real place, and real people go there.

God does not enjoy it when people choose hell (“As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live” Ezekiel 33:11). When people continue to resist God’s influence in their life, he simply gives them what they want: lots of distance from him—for eternity.

There is no second chance after we die. Our decision for or against Christ while we’re alive settles our place in eternity. Invite Jesus Christ to be involved in every aspect of your life. Ask him to be your forgiver and to lead you from this day forward. He doesn’t want you to walk away from him. That’s why he came—to call you home and to be your “shepherd.”
