“He also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.” Revelation 14:10 (NASB)
By Bobby R. Henry, Sr.
It’s good to get an under-standing of things from another’s perspective who has far more experience than one’s self.
I’m very sure that the conversations of those, enlighten people and the common folk like myself, have been bothered by the recent election results, either way they turned out.
No matter the outcome, some of us were either highly elated or dreadfully wowed.
Have you ever watched a worm maneuver itself through cracks in concrete, grass or even dirt? If you haven’t maybe you should. In it you might find an answer to very perplexing questions, namely how to get out of extremely tight situations.
Tight situations can be at most times described as “living hell”, which ain’t too bad because it is the living that you can find some comfort in.
Now, on the other hand, Hell is usually associated with and for the dead. I won’t get too biblical yet. However, Hell is for the dead who are not in Christ. Let that marinade for a minute.
Okay, here we go, back to the worm. I watched a worm on my patio (of which I found out later that it was a very small snake) trying to escape me from chasing him/her out into the grass. Every time that I would block its movement with my foot, a stick, even a rock (I was giving it Hell) it would go between the cracks and come back to where this Hell was. It was able to do this by constricting its body so small, sometimes as thin as a needle to get away.
I was amazed that this snake would endure torture rather than go into its own natural surroundings.
I didn’t quite understand it until I was talking with my daddy on the phone about something total differently than that very small snake.
We were talking about – that’s right you guessed it – the elections.
When we finished our discussion, we solved all of the unanswered questions about what caused Hillary to lose and Trump to win.
And the answer was: “What in Hell do you want?”
I know, you are as puzzled as I was until it all came clear. Why should we be bothered with things that will send us to Hell when trying to live by that which man has twisted?
“Dear God I will trust in You with all my your heart and do not lean on my own understanding. In all my ways I will acknowledge You, and You will make my paths straight. Amen.”
HELL IS NOT THE FINIAL DESTINATION THAT LEADS TO HAPPYNESS
