KEY SCRIPTURE: John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said unto him, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
The Lord answered Nicodemus in our key scripture that, verily, verily, I say unto you, Expect a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.
From the statement of our Lord Jesus Christ it is implied that if you are not born again then your place is hell fire.
Our Lord Jesus spoke extensively about a place called hell fire. What is hell fire? Hell fire is a spiritual place and state of torment by fire prepared for all those who are spiritually lost. Any man who dies without being born again is spiritually lost and so is kept in hell awaiting the final judgement where hell, death and all devils would be cast into the lake of fire (Rev 20:14). When men die they are no more human but are spirit beings. Because they never accepted the life of God or eternal life, they are spiritual criminals which must be kept in prison. Hell is a prison for all spiritual criminals.. No human being goes to hell, but humans who become eternally lost spirits by refusing to accept our Lord Jesus as their Lord and saviour whiles on earth are sent to hell.
The bible spoke about a certain rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16:22-23 “And it came to pass that the beggar died and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And in hell he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and seeth Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom”.
The beggar or Lazarus when he died was carried to Abraham’s bosom. Everyone who dies is buried. It therefore implies that the beggar was buried but his spirit was carried to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man was likewise buried but his spirit went to hell.
Hell is not a figment of somebody’s imagination. Isaiah 5:14 reads ” Therefore hell has enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure; and their glory and their multitude and their pomp and he that rejoiceth shall descend into it”. You may check on the following scripture as well (Mark 5:22, , Mark 9:45, Matthew 10:28, Matthew 18:9….) There are many more references about hell.
Some facts about hell.

Hell is full of torment and the fire is never quenched. It is better to lose anything in this world than to go to hell. Hell and the devil will be cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:14).The lost spirits in hell does not die.
Dear brother or sister many in our life time have visited hell and back, don’t be deceived. Repent and believe in the Lord Jesus. Be wise, you have nothing to lose if it is not true, but you have everything to lose if it is real, well, the evidences are too compelling and undeniable.
Dear heavenly Father, I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins as I accept Jesus as my Lord and personal saviour, come into my life today and save my soul from eternal damnation.

Matthew 18:9 “And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.”
