The bible actually speaks of a man who is in Hades (Hell's first location, eventually Hades inhabitants will be judged and thrown into the lake of fire which is eternal Hell) This man is recorded begging for someone to just touch the tip of his tongue with water due to the heat. He then begs someone to go tell his brothers so they do not come to this place.
In Luke 16:19-31 in the bible, is a story about a certain rich man and a beggar named Lazarus. The rich man is living the good life. He has everything his heart desires. You might say, he was “living the American dream.” The flip side of the story is about a man named Lazarus, who was a beggar. Life had not been so good to him. He was laid at the rich man’s gate everyday hoping to get a hand out so he could survive. Not only was he poor, but he was sick.
The rich man was oblivious to Lazarus and his condition. He was consumed with the pleasures of his own life, and didn’t have time or the compassion to care about Lazarus. Both men died! Lazarus went to paradise, and the rich man to hell. It’s important to know that the rich man didn’t go to hell because he was rich. Being rich isn’t a sin, but when you have everything you think you need, there is a tendency to think you don’t need God. Perhaps you think you’ve got everything under control, but just like the rich man, one day you too will die, and find out there is more than just this world. There is a real place called, Heaven and a real place called, Hell.
The rich man tried to get Abraham, the father of our faith, to send Lazarus to him so that he could just put his finger in cool water and touch his tongue with it, his pain and agony was so great. Abraham told him that wasn’t possible, so the rich man asked Abraham to send Lazarus from the dead, to tell his five brothers not to come to this place called, Hell. Abraham told the rich man, basically, they have the Word of God, and all the prophets, if they don’t listen to the Word of God or the prophets, they won’t listen even if someone comes back from the dead and tells them. Listen to the message of the rich man, Don’t come here! Don’t trust in your own strength, or your own riches. Trust in God! Do what the Word of God tells you to do! Live your lives for God, put your trust in Jesus Christ! Ask Him into your life, because you will live forever!
Friends, I am begging you, please accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and you will never have to worry about Hell again. Also you can be a light to your family and friends and possibly save them from Hell.
How do I get saved from Hell?
- Ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins
- Ask Him to be your Lord & Savior
- Turn from your sins and start reading the bible
If you pray this prayer and mean it He will save you from Hell and when you die you will go to Heaven for all eternity
Dear Jesus, I am a sinner who needs a Savior. Please forgive me of my sins and please be the Lord and Savior of my life. Cleanse me from my guilt and shame and I promise to read your word and allow you to change me. Amen
PS Tell others about Jesus and warn them so they too can go to Heaven and avoid Hell
