Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ – Luke 16:27-28
We can conclude from our text that many people on the other side of eternity (hell) wish somebody will come to earth to tell their family members to not come there. They wish they could return from the dead but God says it is too late for them because “the dead don’t and can’t preach.”
If given the opportunity, these souls who are already condemned in hell will like to come back to evangelize to those close to them. And they would appreciate it if someone can take the initiative to help their family members today.
Father Abraham made it clear to the rich man in hell, that the living have believers in Christ living amongst them, that those are the people qualified to tell them about God and not someone from the dead.
Therefore, if you are alive as a believer, you are God’s mouthpiece for the salvation of souls. Someone’s eternal destiny is tied to you.
Will you answer the cry of a mother, father, brother, sister on the other side of eternity and speak to their sons, daughters, brothers, sisters etc, so that they can avoid the place of torment? The choice is yours to make today. GOD NEEDS YOU!
TELL someone about the reality of hell and God’s salvation this TUESDAY!
Proverbs 24:11, Ezekiel 33:1-9 & Mark 16:15-16.
Pray for the unction to function effectively as it regards soul winning; also pray that you will not delay or be too late in reaching out to those whose eternal destinies are tied to you with the good news of salvation.
