Jesus spoke of both the promise of eternal life in the Kingdom of Heaven and the terrible reality of the final judgment of God upon sin and evil (Matthew 25:46). Upon Jesus' return all people will be raised and will be justly judged by God. Those who took refuge in Jesus Christ will be raised to everlasting life and glory while those who persisted in autonomy, rebellion and the denial of God will be separated from him in hell, forever conscious of their state and choices. The reality of hell is a vindication of the belittling of God's name and a cause for prayer and deep concern. The urgency of this truth must cause us to care for the lives of our neighbors by sharing the good news of the grace of God which rescues us from the wrath to come.
