Hell on Earth

  • He said to them, "Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation." Mark 16:15 WEB.

    Jesus spoke these words to the eleven Apostles before He ascended to heaven. There is so much that could be said about this, but today we focus on "The Gospel." The word Gospel means "Glad tidings, good or joyful news." We are here to proclaim the "good and joyful news" to the whole creation.

    The good news is this: Lord Jesus the King is returning, and His kingdom will be established on the earth, just as it is in heaven. He died to take away the world's sins, and He will take yours away today if you let Him. Earth will be restored and become the paradise it was created to be. The wolf and the lamb will graze together (Isaiah 11:6). The lion will eat grass. Children will be able to play with cobras (Isaiah 11:8). There will be no more sickness, pain, or death, no more child abuse, and no one will hurt anyone else. That is good news.

    Jesus gave a new commandment in John 13:34, to love one another. "Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another." Then He said that all people would know that we are His disciples if we love one another.

    Today people need faith, hope, and love, more than ever before. Some bring an "escape from hell" message, but I know from experience that people who truly have nothing to live for are no longer threatened by hell. They feel they are already there. Like an injured animal backed into a corner, more threats won't help them come out of it. Many today are already living in their own personal hell right here on Earth, and they long to be free.

    What hurting people need is a light in their darkness, a way out, hope. Jesus can give them that and make their life meaningful again. It's not too late. As long as you have breath, there is hope. So when you share the good and joyful news with someone, do it lovingly, or just smile and say nothing.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please guide me today and help me make the right decisions. Let me see the hurting through Your eyes. Take away my pain and fill my heart with Your love. Speak to me and through me, in the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

Yes Lord, I have heard the good news and I believe and hope in the good news. As a veteran, I see so many of my brothers and sisters that have lost this hope. They have seen the degradation that man can inflict on each other. They have have seen the horrors of war and either can't get past it, or forgive themselves for the part they played. They are in their own hell on earth. It's for them that I pray. I pray that God will visit each of them and let them know that they are forgiven. And I pray that they can accept that forgiveness and forgive themselves. This is my prayer Lord. Please hear me and grant this request.
