The Land Where People Never Go Free
Nothing outside of life itself is more cherished than freedom: Man will give everything he posesses for that most precious thing. Yet there are countless thousands willing to throw away all hopes of that most cherished thing, and travel continually toward that land where they shall never be free.
John, on the Isle of Patmos saw the Risen Christ, and among the things that he mentioned he mentioned about the Lord, was that He had gird about Him, the keys to hell and of death. Now that gives us food for our thought today. No one can take these keys away from our Lord, for if no one isable to pluck his children out of His hand, no one can take these keys away from Him.
1. These Keys lock all the Saved out of hell.
*t Lk 16-27 "So that they which would pass from hence to you cannot".
2.These Keys lock all of the Enemies from Christs purchased posessions:
3. These Keys lock the lost into a place of Darkness. Fire, unrest. and Captivity. With this in mind I would like to share you a few thoughts about "The Land Where People Never Go Free"
1: There. People Never Go Free From Sin:
Num: 32-23 "But if ye will not do so, behold ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out."
(A) How tragic it is to be in a place where a person must continually have the burden of sin upon them forever. Brethren, when the burden of sin began to work upon my soul, I thought I was going to die.
(B) Can you imagine living forever with that burden on you every minute of every day. Never a hope of relief. Pitiful thought- yet it is true
2: There People Never Go Free From Shame:
, shame comes to every person in that land. Can't you just hear their moans and groans?
3: There. people never go free from sorrow:
Matt: 13-42 "And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
(A) In my time I have seen people express great sorrow for deeds they have done
(B) There will be in hell, sorrow for every christian whom they mocked, and slandered.
4: There. People never go free from their senses:
Lk 16 One can fee v-23 One can speak v-24 One can taste v-24 One can remember v-25 One can hear v-26
(A) no doubt it would be much easier if these senses could escape, but hell is a land where nothing ever goes free:
(B) Even that awful sense of guilt will always be there, here if we can find some means to sooth our conscience, it makes the burden lighter, but no such thing will be there:
(C) If it were possible people would go stark raving mad, but they can*t"*
5: There People never go free from suffering:
(A) As long as there's a heaven, there will also be a hell, and as long as eternity rolls, people will suffer in "The land where no one ever goes free"
6: There, people never go free from satan:
Rev: 20-10 "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast, and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
(A) To have him deceive them, and then to be cast into the same burning hell with him... No, thank you I'll take Heaven
7:There. people never go free from separation:
Matt: 22-13" Then said the King to the servants, bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping, and gnashing of teeth."
Forever separated from the Lord, from the New City, the Saints, and the Blessings.
