Jeremiah 29:11, I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. (NKJV) This episode is a continuation of the last episode from the podcast on the love of God: this God who is love. I'm sharing with you the unfathomable love of God. This is a love that is incapable of being fully explored or understood on this side of eternity. Again, this is an out-of-this-world kind of love; a love that needs a divine revelation to be fully understood for the natural human mind is incapable of fully comprehending it because we are finite human beings.
Some ask how can a loving God send people to hell. If He is so loving, why does He send people to hell? A simple answer to this question...a simple answer...His righteousness demands it. His righteousness demands it. We are all going to face Him...either at His throne of mercy or His throne of judgment...you decide. The Bible does teach eschatology...a final, catastrophic, apocalyptic time of destruction and judgment...the judgment of the living and the dead.
The lake of fire is God's execution--the carrying out of the judgment upon Satan and all rebellious things. -- See Revelation 20:10 However, it is not God's desire that anyone should perish, but that all will come to repentance. Jesus is our Redeemer. He removed the condemnation on all who would accept His sacrifice.
