KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 5:29 KJV” And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.”
We stay with the multitudes on the mount as the Lord teaches. Among the many things he taught, was what He said concerning the following” And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell”. He says if your eye causes you to sin, then you must do away with it. Note that the Lord calls sin an offence against yourself. He says be ready to lose your eye if it causes you to sin. Why should you pluck out your eye when it makes you sin.? Because sin would lead you into hell fire. Many have been teaching that hell is just the grave. The grave has no pain, to give us, even if your dead body was to be burnt. No dead body can feel any pain. The Lord was referring to the soul of a man that would be cast into hell.
Dear child of God, God is a Spirit, and He lives in the realm of the Spirit. Hell is a spiritual state, where the spirit of man which is not physical goes. Mar 9:45 KJV” And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:” THE Lord says the fires of hell does not go out and your spirit and soul keep burning in hell. Dear brother can you compare any loss you make physically in this physical world, to the pain of suffering forever in hell? Testimonies of people who have visited hell and back is indeed very scary, and something no one must go there by intent or by mistake.
HOW do people get to hell?
1When you reject Jesus as Lord of your life. (John 3:3, Hebrews 2:2)
2. If a Christian live in disobedience to the word of God, he or she would end up in hell.
3. If you live after the dictates of the flesh (Rom 8:13)
4. Christians who die at a time when they would not forgive those who have offended them. Matthew 5:23&24
What must you do, to have a place in heaven?

2. Always forgive anyone who hurts you.
3. Live diligently according to the word of God

Jesus is Lord of my life; I live in anticipation of the coming of Christ. I do not allow sin of any form to have a hold of me. My life is a living praise unto God.
2 Peter 1:10 KJV” Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:”
