|| If You Are Not Saved
Nothing Else Matters!
"He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love." --- (SofS 2:4)
Travis Case, Pastor/Teacher Northgate Baptist Church F.E.A.S.T Ministries
One day a prisoner sat slouched against his damp and dingy prison wall. A minister came into his cell and began reading the Bible, as this was the custom before a man was to die. --- "And the [smoke] of their [torment] ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, ..." (Rev. 14:11)
All of a sudden the prisoner jumped up, grabbed the minister, and demanded, "What are you reading?" The startled minister replied, "I'm reading from the Bible of the plight that befalls all who die without the Lord Jesus Christ."
The prisoner looked him in the face and slowly said, "If I, as a youth, would have heard what you just read, and for one minute would have believed that it was true, I would have dedicated my whole life to saving people from such a place. And if it would have required crawling all across England to save just one person from such a place, I would have consider my life well spent."
Friend, Jesus Loves You
Matt. 16:26, "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?"
Matt. 10:28, "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."
Matt. 7:13-14, "... wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: ... strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."
Rev. 20:15, "Whosoever Was Not Found Written In The Book of Life
Was Cast Into The Lake of Fire."
And Suffered Your Hell For You On The Cross of Calvary!
Why Would You Reject Such Love?
God Is Not Willing That Any Should Perish
But That All Should Come To Repentance. --- 2 Peter 3:9
If You Die And Go To Hell You Will Be An Intruder
Hell Was Prepared For The Devil And His Angels
Not For Human Beings! --- Matt. 25:41
That's Why God Sent His Only Begotten Son
To The Cross of Calvary
To Keep You From Going To
A Place Never Intended For You.
God Has Done Everything In His Power
To Keep You Out of Hell,
Even The Sacrifice of His Own Son.
1 John 4:9-10, "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins."

Message From A Teenager
I went into my classroom
Ready for another year at school.
I didn't want the work,
Just wanted to hang and be cool.
I had on new clothes,
New sneakers on my feet.
I was there for class on time
Went to the back and took my seat.
Yeah, I'm moving up.
I'm already grown.
Soon I'll be graduating
And out on my own.
I talked to some of my friends.
We were all having fun.
Said some things I shouldn't have said,
Did stuff I shouldn't have done.
I knew I was different.
I felt God touch my heart.
I knew I should set a standard,
But then I'd be set apart.
Walking to the bus,
I was not looking for strength.
I heard the car tires screeching,
But now it's too late.
I'm standing in this room
And I can see the heavenly gate.
Oh no! I never prayed.
I thought I had time to get it straight.
An angel walked to me.
He had a book in his hand.
I knew it was the Book of Life.
When would this dream end?
I told him my name
And he began to look.
Then he looked at me sadly and said,
"Your name is not in this book."
Angel, this is a dream.
No, I can't be dead!
He closed the book and turned away.
He whispered - "You cannot proceed ahead."
No...no this can't be real.
Angel, you can't turn me away.
Let me talk to God.
Maybe He'll let me stay.
He led me to the gate.
Jesus came to me,
He did not let me in but said,
"Beloved what is your need?"
Jesus, I cried, please
Don't cast me away from you.
Tears ran down His face as He said,
"You knew what you needed to do."
Lord, please I'm young.
I never thought I would die.
I thought I'd have plenty of time.
Death caught me by surprise.
Lord, I went to church.
Please Jesus, I believe.
He said, "You would not accept me.
My love you would not receive."
Lord, there were too many hypocrites.
They weren't being true.
He took a step back and asked,
"What does that have to do with you?"
Lord, my family claimed to be saved,
They weren't real. You know.
He said, "I died for you.
Now I have to go."
I fell to my knees crying to Him.
Lord, I planned to be real tomorrow.
I couldn't make Him understand.
I had never felt such sorrow.
Then it hit me hard, I said
Lord, where will I go?
He looked into my eyes and said,
"My child you already know."
Please Jesus, I begged
The place is so hot.
It seemed to trouble and grieve Him.
He whispered, "Depart From Me, I Know You Not."
Lord, you're supposed to be love.
How can you send me to damnation?
He replied, "With your mouth you said you loved me,
But each day you rejected my salvation"
With that in an instant,
Day turned into night.
I never knew such torture could be.
Now too late, I know the Bible is right.
If I can tell you anything,
Hell has no age.
It is a place of torture,
Separated from God and full of rage.
You know, I thought it was a-funny joke,
But this one thing is true.
If you never accept Jesus Christ
Hell Is Waiting For You!
So please ask Him into your heart.
