The opening scripture was from Luke 16:19-31.
This story wasn’t given to us so that we think because we have a lot of money we won’t make heaven. The love of money is the root of evil not money itself. Life does not start or end in this terrestrial sphere, there is a great beyond; eternity. There is a place called eternity which is one of the reasons Jesus told the parable so we can get ready for it. The second reason is to know that you can only be saved by the name of Jesus.
God doesn’t punish people but punishes the devil and demons so whoever is a child of the devil suffers the punishment also. We can see this in Exodus 12:12. 1Samuel 6:4, the Bible says "The Philistines asked, "What guilt offering should we send to him?" They replied, "Five gold tumors and five gold rats, according to the number of the Philistine rulers, because the same plague has struck both you and your rulers". so, everybody has a God and it’s inside that God and you are entitled to the judgement of your Lord. Colossians 2:10 says "And you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority".
Psalm 91:1-9 says You will not fear the terror of night,
nor nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
If you make the Most High your dwelling-"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust". Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
Even the LORD, who is my refuge so when you are dwelling in God no devil can molest you. Hell is real and if you’re not a child of God you’ll go to hell, so how can you escape hell? Change your God to the real God. 2Corinthians 5:17-21 says "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation". We are therefore making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. This Makes the child of God escape hell. We have a commission to tell people about Jesus so they can escape hell. We are ambassadors of Christ and have been given the mandate to ensure that the gospel is preached to everyone. Your constant mindset should be how to impact your community.
Ecclesiastes 11:6 says "Sow your seed in the morning,
and at evening let not your hands be idle,
for you do not know which will succeed,
whether this or that,
or whether both will do equally well.
So we should keep sowing seed. The seeds will eventual be yield results and be fruitful. Proverbs 24:10-12, says
"If you falter in times of trouble,
how small is your strength!
Rescue those being led away to death;
hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
If you say, "But we knew nothing about this",
does not he who weighs the heart perceive it
Does not he who guards your life know it?
Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?
So preach so that God will not require the blood of any man from you
