And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. (Numbers 16:31 KJV)
Numbers 16 is the only Scriptural reference where God sent His disobedience people to the Hell without facing their death physically. This passage is telling us that the Hell is not far from the earth, but it is underneath of the earth. There are some scientific evidences why does the volcano would interrupt at some islands relate to the under world. If you would like to study further about the existence of the Hell under the earth surface, please go to www.av1611.org/hell.html.
God didn’t make Hell for us, but for demonic angels and Satan (see Matthew 25:41). But He would let us to go there freely if we would decide to follow Satan. We must understand that Korah and his people choose the road to Hell, not God.
Jesus predicted there would be more people to go to Hell than to Heaven. We see this process is becoming more reality today. MTV, BET, VH1, and other music channel stations teach our young generations to become more violence characters upon themselves and in their community. Even some today’s Contemporary Christian and Gospel Music are trying to be equal to the secular world. This is why some churches are becoming multimillionaire and spirituality poor.
Although God could perish the humanity during the worldwide flood (Genesis 6-9), He wanted to give us the second chance to repent our sins and become His children forever. Most churches maybe silenced on this hot subject, but it is the most important lesson that we need to educate ourselves. If your church doesn’t carry the Hell teaching, then you may need to look for another church that teaches the full council of the Word of God, including the most difficult subjects, such as Hell.
Let me ask this question: Which road will you be taking to eternity? You can follow the MTV ways and would end yourself a place that you don’t like to be. Or you can accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and end yourself to be with Him in His kingdom forever.
