Hell Desires To Have You. Take Refuge In Jesus

Sheol below is excited about you, to meet you when you come; It stirs the spirits of the dead for you, all the leaders of the earth; It raises all the kings of the nations from their thrones.

Isaiah 14:9, NASB

The word “Sheol” in Hebrew means the underworld, the place where people go after death. Before Jesus came and died on the cross for the sins of the world, Hades had two compartments. After Jesus rose from the grave and went to heaven, from that time on, all the saints after their death go straight to be with the Lord in heaven and no longer to Sheol (2 Corinthians 5:8).

The two compartments in Hades is seen in Luke 16:19-31. There was a rich man who lived for his money and at his gate was a beggar named Lazarus, who wanted to eat the scraps that fell from the rich man’s table. The rich man never helped Lazarus. The time came for them to die and both went to Hades. Lazarus went to paradise, another section of Hades while the rich man went to the place where the fires are at. There was a chasm between both places in Hades, so that the ones in paradise couldn’t cross over to help those in the fire and those in the fire couldn’t go to paradise.

From this point on, I will use the word Hell to refer to Hades for clarity.

In Hell there is nothing but fire reserved for those who die in their sins because they didn’t put their faith in Jesus Christ, having their sins forgiven. Hell desires you to occupy your place. Hell looks forward to have you, so that it may consume you with its fires.

Why does Hell have a desire for people to come there? We know that Hell is not animated but the Scriptures expresses it in such a way as to remind us our destiny without Jesus. Everyone who is born, their eternal dwelling after death is Hell because all of us are born in sin (Psalm 51:5) and no one with sin can enter into heaven. So, a place has been made for us in Hell.

There is a way to forfeit our place in Hell. Our sins must be washed away, making us clean and righteous before a Holy God. God has to punish sin because He is righteous and all evildoers must pay for their sins. Jesus came and took all of our sins upon Himself on the cross and died in our place for it. If we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior and ask Him for forgiveness, He will for give us. We must accept the conviction of the Holy Spirit who brings to your attention all of your sins and shows you how evil you are, referring to the sinful nature of the flesh.

If the Holy Spirit is talking to you, do not resist Him. Understand that it is for your good that the Holy Spirit is trying to make you see that you are a sinner and everything you do goes against God’s standard. Even the good that you might do, only glorifies yourself and not God who gave you life.

Remember, Hell desires you and it can’t wait to have you. Wake up before it’s too late. Get on your knees and ask Jesus Christ to save you today. You are never promised tomorrow.

Don’t Be Taken By Lying Spirits

20 And the LORD said, ‘Who will entice Ahab to go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?’ And one spirit said this, while another said that. 21 Then a spirit came forward and stood before the LORD, and said, ‘I will entice him.’ 22 And the LORD said to him, ‘How?’ And he said, ‘I will go out and be a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all his prophets.’ Then He said, ‘You shall entice him, and you will also prevail. Go and do so.’ 23 Now then, behold, the LORD has put a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of yours; and the LORD has declared disaster against you.” -1 Kings 22:20-23

The “prophets” of the Charismatic movement, a denomination of Christianity has been exposed as false teachers. In the verses above, the LORD wanted to bring judgment to Ahab for worshiping false gods causing Israel to abandon the LORD and for murdering Naboth, so that he can have his vineyard that was next to his palace (1 Kings 21).

Who were the spirits that were before the LORD? The answer is in verse 19 which says, “And Micaiah said, “Therefore, hear the word of the LORD. I saw the LORD sitting on His throne, and all the angels of heaven standing by Him on His right and on His left.”

The LORD allowed demons (deceiving spirit) to deceive Ahab but at the same time sent him a true prophet to warn him for repentance.

The spirits are angels, but it is a mixture of God’s angels and fallen angels. In the Book of Job Chapter 1, it shows that God’s angels are before the Throne of God listening for a command from the LORD and Satan with his fallen angels present themselves to give an account of what they are doing on earth.

6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. 7 The LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Satan answered the LORD and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”-Job 1:6-7

Mr. Trump was never going to serve two terms as president. God’s will has been clearly revealed. Many genuine Christians like myself were hoping that he would, but in the Charismatic circle, those who call themselves “prophets” were saying unanimously that the LORD spoke to them that Mr. Trump was going to win. We now know that the LORD never spoke to them. If the LORD never spoke to them, then who did? They were hearing from demons. What was the purpose of that false prophecy? It was to disillusion many true Christians who are in the Charismatic denomination. It literally was to destroy their faith in Jesus.

These false prophets, which is what they truly are, as proven with Trump’s loss, that God has exposed the Charismatics, as having a cesspool of false Christians, prophets, preachers, teaching false doctrines.

Friends, if God truly speaks to you that something will happen, you can believe that it will happen.

How can we know if the LORD has spoken to someone?

21 And if you say in your heart, ‘How will we recognize the word which the LORD has not spoken?’ 22 When the prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, and the thing does not happen or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you are not to be afraid of him. -Deuteronomy 18:21-22

How does the LORD feel about a false prophet, who speaks in His name something that which God didn’t say to him?

But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name, a word which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.’ -Deuteronomy 18:20

It was a capital crime to speak a false message in the name of the LORD. God dealt with a false prophet very seriously because it was so deadly for anyone who would believe their message as it would lead them either to a false god or make them afraid through a word, as if from the LORD to make them believe that God was not happy with them.

All of these Charismatic “prophets” are not from God and are not hearing from God. They have been sent to deceive as many as possible. These false prophets are hearing from demons.

If you are a genuine Christian and you listen to them, you have to stop. You are taking in demonic doctrine. Stick to the Word of God.

Are we to listen to prophets today?

1 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom He also made the world. -Hebrews 1:1

In the Old Testament, God’s spoke in two ways.

  1. God spoke through His Word, which was in the process of being completed. Of course, I’m speaking before the last prophet who contributed to the canon of Scripture.
  2. God spoke through His prophets. Prophets not only spoke God’s Word to the Israelies, but also wrote down what God told them, which became part of the Old Testament Scriptures.

In the New Testament, after Jesus ascended to heaven and gave His disciples the promised Holy Spirit, there were besides the 12 Apostles who were the only ones that had supernatural powers, the Holy Spirit working in them powerfully, there were also apostles (not the same as the 12) teachers, preachers, prophets, and etc. The reason for them was to help the church grow, as they didn’t have the complete Bible yet.

11 And He gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelists, some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ; 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. 14 As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of people, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; -Ephesians 4:11-14

We no longer need prophets to hear from the Lord Jesus Christ. We have the Scriptures that God uses to speak to his saints. Now, can God speak to an individual with what they are going through personally? Yes. Can God use you to do a miracle for someone? Yes. Can you speak in tongues, a language that you don’t know to minister to a foreign person? Absolutely. Is this the normal way God speaks to people? No. The main way that God communicates with people is through His Word. The others are very rare.

Don’t let yourself be deceived. Match up everything that you hear with the Scriptures. The Scriptures warns that many professing Christians will abandon sound teachings and apostatize in the last days. Don’t be one of them. Anchor yourself in God’s Word.

Who Is The Serpent?

Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden’?” -Genesis 3:1

The serpent is the one who caused mankind to fall into sin by deception and brought about their death, physical and spiritual—separation from God.

So the great dragon was thrown out—the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the one who deceives the whole world. He was thrown to earth, and his angels with him. -Revelation 12:9

The serpent of Genesis is none other than Satan himself. The phrase “the ancient serpent” reveals that Satan’s fall happened before the first humans were created.

You are of your father the Devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks from his own nature, because he is a liar and the father of liars. -John 8:44

Jesus was speaking to the Jews who wanted Him dead—giving a comparison of their desires to that of Satan’s because he was the first murderer, referring to the serpent’s deception that ended up destroying Adam and Eve’s relationship with the LORD—bringing upon their death. And was now behind these men—stirring them to murder Jesus.

The gospel of Jesus Christ is where you will find the Truth.

Any other source that reveals the nature of God other than the Scriptures, you will find the teachings of Satan which will bring you false doctrine, and is also known as doctrines of demons (1 Timothy 4:1-2).

Who is the serpent? Satan. The first murderer and the father of lies.
