WORDS TO PONDER .....
“When the papers published the fact that a young man entered a large room in Buffalo, New York, and stood in line with those who were receiving the greetings of President McKinley, that he might murder the man who was ready to greet him with kindness, some theologians in New England, who had been preaching that there was no hell, were frank enough to confess that there ought to be a hell for at least one man, for McKinley and his murderer ought not to be together in the same place. For such men to escape hell unless they repent. would be cause for everlasting regret. The smoke of their torment satisfies the sense of justice which every righteous soul has. For them to escape punishment would make a discordant note in God's universe. The Hallelujah of judgment (Revelation 19:1, 2) is the response of noble natures to the justice of the retribution which comes upon those who wreck the character and destroy the happiness of others.”
“You remember that word in the 27th chapter of the Book of Proverbs, the 21st verse: ‘Boast not thyself of tomorrow, for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.’ How many a one went to sleep last night apparently in a measure of health and strength, and today have passed out into eternity and alas, alas, many of them went out Christless, and will have to face God at the Great White Throne in their sin. Did you ever stop to think of this, dear, unsaved one, that every day you reject Christ, every day that you go on without heeding the Gospel message, you are adding to the things you can never undo?”
“In the terrible bombing of London during World War II, after one of their worst raids, with the fire raging and the cries of the dying around and the buildings toppling, there was an evangelist of Christ standing out in the street of London preaching the gospel of the Son of God. And while he was preaching, a skeptic broke into his sermon and said, ‘Listen, preacher, this is hell; the bombing of London.’ And the preacher replied, ‘Sir, this is not hell and I’ll give you three reasons. One, I am a Christian and there are no Christians in hell. Second, there is a church house right around the corner and there are no church houses in hell. And third, I am preaching the gospel of the Son of God, and there is no preaching of the gospel in hell.’ About three weeks after that, the same evangelist was standing at an open-air service in Hyde Park, preaching the gospel of Jesus. And when he gave the invitation, the first to come forward was that skeptic. And when he took the preacher’s hand, he said, ‘Preacher, I’m the man, I’m the man that said -- This is hell! And you answered so well and so truly. It convicted my heart, and I have come forward to turn to Jesus as my Savior. And I accept Him now.’”
