Eternal Address


“Living This Life for the Next Life”

Lesson 1: Eternal Address

November 4 & 5, 2017


 “If you read history you will find that the Christians who did the most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this.”C.S. Lewis  


We want good to triumph over evil


We want to escape time and death


We want to experience a never ending love


We want to communicate with the supernatural


Ecclesiastes 3:11 Everything is appropriate in its own time. But though God has planted eternity in the hearts of men, even so, many cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. Living Bible


Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]… The Amplified Bible

Hell Is A Place of Suffering

Mark 9:47 And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out. It’s better to enter the Kingdom of God with only one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell, 48 ‘where the maggots never die and the fire never goes out.’ New Living Translation


Hell Is Void Of God

Hell Can Only Be Escaped By Believing In and Accepting Jesus
