Bible Studies Sermons By Steven Lewis / a couple of years ago Share Tweet Pin Share Num 16: 31-33 31And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them: 32And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. 33They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation. The story of Korah is a story that is very rarely told to the people of the world or even people in so-called churches, but hell is real and it is beneath our very feet. Jesus being God told this to the people of Earth when he did his Earthly ministry he refers to it over 200 times and the bible speaks of sheol aka; hades aka; hell. In this world of explanation and head turning to dark it is hard to conceive a loving God that they think can do that to people. But the totality of it is clear, God don’t send nobody to hell off of a whim but off of peoples decision. So if a person makes a decision that they know will send them to a bad fate, whose fault is that? Its that individual’s fault because God isn’t petty he is a just judge. The Justice of what happened to Korah and his people was judgement they brought on themselves from “rebellion” and “rebellion” is as the sin of “witchcraft”. The same thing happens today it is the most prevelant source of what sends people to hell these days, it is the rebellious spirit that still exist that sends most people there. I want to be clear I am not dooming all people to hell like some people who say everything is the devil but hell is real and the top spirit that sends people to hell is rebellion because it goes against the natural movement of God’s power and haults it and insults it and pushes it to the side. Remember the bible says don’t be deceived (fooled); God is not to be mocked (Gal 6:7). He will not be mocked and hell is awaiting those who try to mock God. The end is near and God is nearer than we expect him to be and the bible says hell hath enlarged itself (Isa 5:14) and she is hungry for the souls of those from the world but also it’s more hungry for those of us who will not hold to the wonderful truth of Repentance, baptism in the name of Jesus and being full of the Holy Ghost. We need a fresh refilling of the fear of God so that our respect for God will flood our entire being. Jesus saw Satan fall and he saw the rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31). The rich man lived his life how he wanted and whether you know it or not it was the rebellion in him to do right that made him the way he was. He was high and haughty and thought only of himself and those elected. We know when people are like that, they rebel against God because God will say to them just as was spoken when he told them to depart for when he was naked they did not clothe him etc. When we do not do what God wants us to do and is lawfully right in his sight then we will be in rebellion. Don’t be a fool! God is watching all our lives so let us all live it to his rite and to his holiness so that we may stand before him spotless and hear him say, “Well done good and faithful servant”.
