WHAT ABOUT THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO REJECT JESUS?
Those who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from the Godhead.
“Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire [the eternal separation from God]. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the Book of Life, he was hurled into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:14-15 (AMP).
It was never God’s purpose to send people to Hell. God the Father has sent many messengers and many warnings for his creation to avoid this fate. The Scripture states that God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).
We have all been given the free will to either follow God or to follow the devil, and this—eternal separation from God—is the devil’s fate. Who will we follow?
