Devils are Powerless Angels
Topic: Hell

And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. (Luke 10:17-19 KJV)

Have you ever meet devils or demons in your personal life experiences? If not, do you believe that there is an existing of devil anywhere around the earth? Whether or not have seen the existence of demons or devils, we are living in the world with two different views of living a life (Psalms 1)—one with God and another with Satan.

Even though Satan is currently overruling this world since Genesis 3, his power is no match with God, his Master. In the Book of Revelation, God will defeat Satan and his angels. We see that Satan cannot take over Job’s life as long as God gave him the permission to attack His servant with certain parts (Job 1-2).

In the same way, Satan cannot attack on us as long as we are on God’s side. If we are far off from God, we will be in big trouble. The Bible tells us that Satan is the father of lies (John 8:44). He will try to deceive us that could pull ourselves away from our relationship with God. If we love the world than to love God, our relationship with Him would become useless.

In Luke 4:6-8 says, “And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

Satan wants let us to worship him. That is why we see many people are going on their Trick or Treat on the Halloween night. Halloween is the satanic New Year Eve. But Satan and his demonic angels will become powerless when we are on God’s side.

Which team are you going to take? If you want to know Jesus Christ personally, please invite Him to your life by surrender your life to Him. Paul said in Romans 10:9-10, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Or you maybe have experienced lukewarm relationship with God in the last couple months and want to come back to restore your relationship with Him, God will accept you who you are and reunite with you again if you are willing. There is no this kind of power that Satan has, except God.

Satan’s Mission
Topic: Hell

And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts. (Mark 4:15 KJV)

What is the Satan’s mission and how does he relate to the hell? In John 10:10a, Jesus described as a thief to steal, to kill and to murder. In Matthew 4 and Luke 4, he is appeared as a tempter who tried to tempt Jesus in the wilderness. In Genesis 3, we recognize him as a serpent that deceived Eve and Adam by twisting God’s Words.

No matter what God has a plan for humanity, Satan is trying to accomplish his plan by destroying God’s plan for us. As I said in End Time message series last year, Satan is trying to destroy the lands of Israel and United States by using the radical Islam nations. Why U.S.? First, U.S. was founded by the Christianity that arrived from the Jewish root. Secondly, we are helping Jews to protect their nation. Thirdly, we are friends with Jews. These or more that Satan hates.

 

Even though Satan was the one of God’s messengers first, he decided to be equal with God (see Isaiah 14:12-14). He wanted to receive all the glory for himself. So, we read that God turned the serpent (Satan) to snake with no legs.

Hell is not made for us, but Satan wants us to go there rather than by himself and his angels. I want to be honest about what he is doing with the entertainment industry. Satan is trying to pull us away from our relationship with God through MTV, BET, CMT, VH-1, and MTV JAM. If we study their lyric, we would find many ungodly words and it blasphemy God’s characters.

The mission statement of Satan would be: To bring many people into Hell as possible, so they can have terrible eternal life.


However, we have God who would like us to have eternal joyful life. We don’t need to go Hell, but rather to walk to eternal heavenly place. God created the hell for Satan, demons, and rebellious people. So, where you would be after this life?

The Rich Man and Lazarus (Part II)
Topic: Hell

And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. (Luke 16:26 KJV)

In the previous message, I discussed the first two things about Hell—a place of torment and a place of bringing back to remembrance. We must that Hell is a real place and it’s reality. In Numbers 16, we read that God opened the land to send the Korah’s family into the hell without experiencing death due to their rebellion against God and Moses. However, God did not create the hell for anyone to go in and live there eternality, except Satan and his demonic angels. We have choice to there if we’d decide to reject God and live according to our wills.

As Jesus enclosed the story of the rich man and Lazarus, He said that there is a great gap between Heaven and Hell that no one could cross over. No one can able to free from Hell. I watch a couple TBN Programs that people had a dream that went through Hell and come back to life again. I’m not sure about TBN viewer’s testimonies, because God’s Words said no one would able to escape from Hell once to go in.

“Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” (Luke 16:27-31.)

Can you feel the rich man’s agony as you read Luke 16:27-31? Jesus said that the hell is an everlasting fireplace (Matthew 25:41). We cannot imagine the great pain of this rich man in Luke 16. If the poor is suffering here on earth while the rich man is enjoying his richest life, then the rich man will be looking for suffering in Hell forever. Jesus will do the opposite with the greedy man who has been ignoring the homeless people.

Even this message may be harsh for us to swallow, but we need this as an alarm for ourselves. This message is not a popular message today, because most today’s preachers have forgotten to grab the true message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Most of their messages may about why Jesus died and raised from the dead, but it’s not relate to Hell. Jesus didn’t die and raise from the dead was not just for us to receive the gift of salvation, but to save ourselves from going to Hell.

The Rich Man and Lazarus (Part I)
Topic: Hell

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. (Luke 16:20-21 KJV)

In Luke 16:20-.31, Jesus used a story of the rich man and Lazarus to explain what the Hell looks like. He used this parable to make His disciples to understand what is the value in life. When He came to the point of the rich man’s eternal destiny, Jesus gave us some points about a place is called Hell.

First in verse 23, the hell is a place of torment or torture. The hell is a painful place. There is no way for anyone to rest. In his sermon, Bill Wises shared his personal testimony of experiencing of being in Hell. It’s a dark and painful place. Bill said that anybody can have difficult to breathe air and demons will torture the souls days and nights. The rich man also doesn’t have fresh water to cool his tongue (v. 24).

I remember one of children’s education cartoons showed that underneath of the earth is really hot. This temperature could be more than 400 degree. If anybody would dig into the center of the earth, his physical body easily died and his spirit will suffer there eternally.

Secondly, Jesus mentioned that the hell is a place of brings us back into past memory (v. 25). Good or bad, the rich man cannot move on to his future thoughts. He has difficult to erase his bad memory before he became a rich man. Or he cannot erase his memory of Lazarus begged him for food to eat.

Being an earthly rich is nothing more than heading into the trash. There is nothing wrong with having good things in our lives. God can bless us with $1 million house. But when we would begin to focus more earthly things than God, we would become like a rich man who ended his life in Hell.

Are you saved by the grace of God through Jesus Christ? If you are not sure which road that you would take to eternality, please make a right decision today. If you would like to have relationship with Jesus Christ, please surrender your life to Him by asking Him forgiveness for your sins and invite Him to your life.

How to Prevent Us from Going to Hell?
Topic: Hell

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.
