Day 258/260: Read Revelation 20
How often do you seriously consider eternity? Once this life comes to an end, your eternal existence is established. You will either be rewarded, or punished.
Of the devil, the beast, and the false prophet, John writes, “And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” Jesus calls it “outer darkness,” a place of “weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 8:12; 22:13).
Hell was not designed with people in mind, though. Jesus says it was “prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41). God does not want any of His children to go there, but He is just; those who do not repent will perish (2 Peter 3:9).
While we cannot on this earth truly imagine the severity of hell, two things are certain from Scriptures: (1) it is eternal, and (2) no one truly wants to go there. Those who flippantly say otherwise do not believe or understand the nature of the punishment that awaits.
Prayerfully consider your spiritual condition right now. Are you on your way to eternal life, or the lake of fire and brimstone?

Pray for wisdom as you consider eternity.
