Horrors of Hell 

"For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress,
a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat,
when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall."
{Isaiah 25:4}

1.    FIRST REASON HELL WILL BE A HORROR  - THE WICKED WILL BE THERE.

"Wicked shall be turned into Hell, and all the nations that forget God."
{Psalm 9:17}


Who are the wicked?

"And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, and which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."
{Revelation 19:20}


"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
{Revelation 21:8}


One third of the Angels

"For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;"
{2 Peter 2:4}


Satan

"And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."
{Revelation 20:10}


Good people. (Those not found in the Lamb's Book of Life.)

"Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:"  {Matthew 25:41}

2.  SECOND REASON HELL WILL BE A HORROR - TEMPERATURE

Fire and Brimstone

"And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."
{Revelation 19:20}


Literal fire

"And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire."
{Matthew 18:9}


Fire never quenched

"Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched."
{Mark 9:44} 


3.  THIRD REASON HELL WILL BE A HORROR - ACTIVITIES

Gnashing of teeth

"And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth."
{Matthew 13:42}


Shame (embarrassment)

"And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt."
{Daniel 12:2}


Thirst never is quenched

"And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.  But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented."
{Luke 16:24-25}


Unsuitable sorrow (i.e., "get me out of here!")

"The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow."
{Psalms 116:3}


No rest

"And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name."
{Revelation 14:11}


Continual torment

"And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."
{Revelation 20:10}


4.  FOURTH REASON HELL WILL BE A HORROR - MEMORY

Consider the rich man and Lazarus

"There was a certain rich man, And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, . . . that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.  And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.  But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.  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.  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 16:19-31}


The rich man:

Was thirsty
In flames
>  Was tormented
Wanted someone to warn living family members
>  Was too late in warning others
>  Prayed for his family member's destiny
>  Remembered God's Love.

>  Communicated with Saints in Paradise.  


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
{John 3:16}


> Remembers Gospel Sermons

> Remembers Scripture Verses

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.  But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world."
{Romans 10:17-18}


Remembers hearing about Jesus Christ, and rejecting Him

"And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely."
{Revelation 22:17}


Knows that all hope is gone

"Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come."
{John 8:21}


5.  FIFTH REASON HELL WILL BE A HORROR - IT IS FOREVER

Enlarged to hold the multitudes

"Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it."
{Isaiah 5:14}


No exit for escape

"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}


Hell is everlasting, never comes to an end

"And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal."
{Matthew 25:46}


Darkness

"And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
{Matthew 25:30}


Remember:

"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."
{Romans 10:9}


"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
{Romans 10:13} 

God's desire is that all should fellowship with Him in Heaven for all eternity.
