We are talking about hell today, because we are in a series that we are calling, “From Here To Eternity.” We are going through what the Word of God says about when we die, where we are after we die, and at the end of time when no one else will ever die physically. Though everybody dies, not everybody goes to spend eternity in the same place. There is a real heaven and a real hell, and we need to know what each of these final destinations entails so that we might have a sense of urgency to share the message of Jesus with those who have not secured their eternity in heaven.
Death is a scary concept for a lot of people. As believers, we have a lot of hope that death is not the end for us, but that doesn’t mean that death isn’t scary or unnerving at all. And because it is such a morbid topic, many people don’t like to talk about death and the topics surrounding it. But in this series called “From Here To Eternity,” we aren’t going to shy away from the conversation. We are going to explore what the Word of God says about what happens at death, what happens after death, between death, and the time when we believe Jesus will return.
