From “Escape The Coming Night” by Dr. David Jeremiah
Hell is not a place where good ol’ boys sit around and drink beer and play poker to pass the time.
But our Lord is compassionate. He does not want anyone to receive the gruesome sentence of eternal hell. He begs “‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil way! Why will you die, O house of Israel?”’ (Ezekiel 33:11).
Likewise, I find no pleasure in describing about the times of terror the unsaved will experience. As Vance Havner said, “The real test of how much we believe of prophetic truth is what we are doing to warn men to flee from the wrath to come . . .to believe the solemn truths of prophecy and then make our way complacently through a world of sin and shame is not merely unfortunate, it is criminal.”
