Can A Person Repent And Get A Second Chance In Hell?


Can a person who is in hell, repent and get saved and leave hell?

The Bible teaches very clearly that once a person dies, they are judged and if found without Christ in their hearts, they will go to hell for all eternity.

Hebrews 9:27 

27 And just as it is appointed for people to die once—and after this, judgment

John 3:18 

18 Anyone who believes in him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.

A person, while living on earth who has rejected the Lord Jesus stays condemned, once they die, it will be final.

Revelation 14:9-11 

9 And another, a third angel, followed them and spoke with a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he will also drink the wine of God’s wrath, which is poured full strength into the cup of his anger. He will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the sight of the holy angels and in the sight of the Lamb, 11 and the smoke of their torment will go up forever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or anyone who receives the mark of its name.

By receiving the Mark of the Beast, the person has rejected Christ. In verse 11, their torment will endure forever and ever without having a chance to repent or get out. 


Who Are The Ones Who Know The Truth And Listens To Jesus’ Voice?

John 18:37

37 “You are a king then?” Pilate asked.

“You say that I’m a king,” Jesus replied. “I was born for this, and I have come into the world for this: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.

Being educated and even having a high status in this world doesn’t make one wise or to know the truth about God.

“Everyone who is of the truth” Those who are humble and would submit to God’s conviction are the ones that would be of the truth.

“listens to my voice” We are not here to give our opinion [eisegesis] on the Scriptures but we are to let it tell us what it is saying [exegesis].

Jesus is asking us today, to listen to Him and is not asking you what you think about Him. When we don’t listen, we come up with many different Jesus’s and start walking a path of destruction that will also condemn people to hell just because we didn’t take the time to open our hearts to what the Scripture is actually saying.

When you come to the Bible and mock what it says and think that God doesn’t exist because you don’t hear from Him, stop and think, how you are approaching Him. 

Isaiah 66:2 

2 My hand made all these things, and so they all came into being. This is the Lord’s declaration. I will look favorably on this kind of person: one who is humble, submissive in spirit, and trembles at my word.
