HOW CAN YE ESCAPE HELL?


In Matthew 23 the Lord Jesus is coming down hard on the scribes and Pharisees of His days. He does not spare. The time is Tuesday morning, in the temple, right under the nose of the scribes and Pharisees, three days before the Lord Jesus is going to be crucified.

The Last Three Woes (Matthew 23:25-33)

Matthew 23:25-32
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.

Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

Matthew 23:33
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

The last words in this passage, “how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” are the words I want to focus on today.

And thus the title of this article is, “How Can Ye Escape the Damnation of Hell?”

A common theme throughout this passage is: “Clean on the outside but dirty on the inside”.

It applies to the cup and the platter, it applies to the whited sepulchres, and it applies to the tombs of the prophets whom they pretend to adore, but history proved that they have persecuted every one of them, even unto death. And thus the outside of the tombs are nice and garnished, but inside are the remains of those whose souls now in heaven under the altar cry, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?” We know not how long, but it is getting close.

The Cup and the Platter (Matthew 23:25-26, Revelation 16:19)

Matthew 23:25-26
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

Why does the Lord focus on the cup and the platter?

It is because the scribes and Pharisees are very busy fulfilling their ceremonies, and making every thing clean that they may appear to be God honoring people.

What is the meaning of the cup in the Bible?

Most of the time the cup refers to the cup of God’s wrath. For example, we read in Revelation 16:19, “And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath”.

This tells us that the cup of the wine of the fierceness of God’s wrath is hottest when it concerns the apostate church. Likewise the Old Testament congregation has gone severely apostate in Jesus’ days, because of the works gospels that the scribes and Pharisees were preaching in those days.

How could they escape the damnation of Hell?

They would have to read the Bible again and pray that God would enlighten them in understanding the Scriptures like Jesus did.

Whited Sepulchres (Matthew 23:27-28, Romans 3:13)

Matthew 23:27-28
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

The Lord compared the scribes and Pharisees with sepulchres that have been painted white on the outside, but within they are full of dead men’s bones.

Why does the Lord Jesus compare them with sepulchres?

God speaks about such sepulchres in Romans 3:13, where He says, “Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips”.

Why is their throat an open sepulchre?

It is because with their tongues they speak the lies of the works gospels that the scribes and Pharisees were so fond of. That is why the poison of asps is under their lips, for with their speech they plant their poison in the hearts of the hearers and lead them astray into works gospels. This is why the Lord Jesus accused them of being full of hypocrisy and iniquity within. On the outside they appear like holy men, clean and white, but they carry within a graveyard full of dead disciples whom they have killed with their false gospels. They have learned these false gospels from their fathers, who killed the true prophets of the Lord. That is why we now read about the sepulchres of the prophets.

The Sepulchres of the Prophets (Matthew 23:29-32, Luke 11:47-48, John 8:44)

Matthew 23:29-30
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

They claimed to be innocent of the blood of the prophets. The Lord says that they are not innocent, for they inherited the guilt of their fathers, for the Lord is visiting the iniquity of the fathers unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate His true identity. Furthermore, The Lord Jesus said in Luke 11:

Luke 11:47
Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.

Luke 11:48
Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.

Truly, the children of them which killed the prophets of God act like their fathers, for they are imitating the works of their fathers. The Lord Jesus referred to this in the Gospel of John, chapter 8. He says,

John 8:44
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

The scribes and Pharisees are demonstrating that they are of their father the Devil, for they have murder on their mind. They intend to kill the Lord Jesus before the week is over.

How Can Ye Escape the Damnation of Hell? (Hebrews 2:3, Matthew 23:33)

Now we need to examine the question that the Lord Jesus placed before the scribes and Pharisees. In Matthew 23:33 the Lord Jesus said

Matthew 23:33
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

The scribes and Pharisees did not answer this question. We know the answer, because we have heard the Gospel of salvation through the cross of Christ, and God the Holy Spirit has revealed unto us that this is the truth. Even today there are many in the world who do not know this, and who deliberately refuse to pay attention to God’s Word, the Bible. Yes, they have deliberately chosen other pursuits to their own happiness in the here and now, and so they are neglecting God’s Word regarding their life hereafter. But the Bible is very clear that they are fools who neglect God’s Word. God says in Hebrews 2:3,

Hebrews 2:3
How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

How shall we escape the damnation of Hell if we neglect so great a gift, whereby God Himself took on the likeness of sinful man, and came down to earth to make atonement for sinful man, and suffered the equivalent of an eternity in Hell in our place, so that we can go to heaven?

The answer is: We shall not escape the damnation of Hell if we neglect so great salvation, for we would have spurned the gift of God, and we would be trampling on the One who gave His life and His soul as a gift for mankind. God will be the Avenger of anyone who does this. All they who neglect so great salvation are refusing to serve God by not giving Him glory, and are denying that God made man to give Him glory. All they who neglect so great salvation are placing themselves on the side of Satan and his fallen angels who also refused to serve the one and only God. That is why the Lord Jesus labeled the scribes and Pharisees as serpents and vipers. In God’s eyes they are serpents, for Satan showed himself as a serpent in the Garden of Eden where he deceived the woman by putting doubt in her mind about what God has said. In God’s eyes they are poisonous vipers, for this is the effect of lending an ear to the lies of the Devil. And God says that all those who follow the lies of the Devil are like him, and are comparable to serpents and vipers. No one on earth can claim that he has never heard this, for the Bible has been a best seller for more than 500 years over all the world. God did not keep this in a secret corner. The Gospel of Christ crucified has been spread for more than 1950 years, and today we can say that the Gospel has been preached to all nations on this earth. And thus, the day of reckoning has come very close.

The Lord Jesus says to the scribes and Pharisees, “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”

And what exactly is this condemnation?

What is Hell?

We want to examine this place, Hell, for today there are many fables and lies spread in many churches about Hell.

What Is Hell? (Matthew 18:8, 25:41,46, Mark 3:29, 9:44, 46, 48, 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9, Hebrews 6:2, Jude 7, Revelation 14:10-11, 20:10)

Let us hear what the Lord says about Hell in the Gospel of Matthew, Matthew 18:8,

Matthew 18:8
Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

Here the awfulness of Hell is said to be worse that cutting of your own hand and foot. We all can envision the horrendous pain that accompanies the mutilation of our hands and feet. Well, the pain of Hell is much worse. This is the reason why the Lord says, “cut them off, and cast them from thee”. The Lord is not saying this as a command to cut off our hands and feet, but to give us a picture of how awful Hell really is.

Moreover, the Lord says that Hell is an everlasting fire. Today there are many lies spread that Hell is a place of incineration. It is a place where people are incinerated: poof, they are gone forever No more existence and no more suffering. That is a lie.

Why would God create an everlasting fire if the use of it would be only temporary?

Many people try to reason that a good God would not cast people into an eternal Hell. But we should not trust our human reasoning; we should trust what God says in the Bible. And the Bible is very clear that both the saved and the unsaved have eternal existence in heaven or in Hell. God says in Matthew 25:41,

Matthew 25:41
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Again, the fire is everlasting, and it is prepared for the Devil and his angels. Do not trust the word “angel” when you see it in your KJ Bibles. This word should have been translated “messenger” in every case where we find it, for that is the real meaning of this word. An angel can be a messenger, but a human being can also be a messenger, for every unsaved person is a messenger of Satan, in contrast to a saved person, who is a messenger of Christ. Many cults derive their false doctrines from the KJ Bible, letting people believe that the English translation of the Greek or Hebrew text is the infallible Word of God. That is a lie. The English translation is the work of man, and cannot be the infallible Word of God. But the Greek text declares to us here that Hell is like “an everlasting fire created for the Devil and his messengers” and that includes all the human beings who remain unsaved, for God knew from before the foundation of the world which human beings would remain in rebellion, and remain in their sins. God repeats His message from verse 41 in verse 46. Please drop down to verse 46 where the Lord says,

Matthew 25:46
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

You see, the punishment in the fires of Hell will be everlasting, meaning without end. It is absolutely certain that Hell is a place where people are punished everlastingly, or eternally, for their sins. Hell is forever, because people’s sins cannot be purged by their works. Sins cannot be purged in purgatory, and sins cannot be purged by enduring sufferings in Hell for a while, for that would be equivalent to the work of Christ, and Christ alone was able to do that because He is fully man and fully God at the same time. And so, when people believe that they will endure the pain of incineration for a few moments, they are in fact subscribing to a salvation from their sins by a works gospel, where they do their own work of washing away their sins through suffering in the fires of Hell, as if they were equivalent to the Lord Jesus Christ. But this will not work, for no one can pull themselves up by their bootstraps to the level where the Lord Jesus Christ is. Let me give you a few more passages that prove Hell is forever. They are all listed in the sermon outline in your bulletin of today so that you can save them for your witnessing.

Mark 3:29
But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

Mark 9:44, and 46, and 48,
Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Notice:

If in Hell the worm does not die, why would people die?

Are worms better than people?

2 Thessalonians 1:8-9
In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

Hebrews 6:2
Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

Jude 1:7
Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Revelation 14:10
The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

Revelation 14:11
And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Revelation 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.

The objections to this conclusion that are brought up many times are as follows:
Why does God in 2 Thessalonians 1:9 speak of “everlasting destruction”, and God speaks of Hell more often as “destruction”?

And why does God say in Ezek 33:11 that “He has no pleasure in the death of the wicked”?

Let us look at:

Is Hell the Destruction of Body and Soul? (Matthew 7:13, John 17:12, Romans 9:22, Genesis 2:17)

In Matthew 7 we have a passage where the Lord Jesus warns us not to follow the majority of mankind, for the majority remains under the wrath of God. It is only a minority of mankind that will find the way to eternal life. In this verse the Lord Jesus said that the majority of mankind is on the way to destruction. We read in Matthew 7:13,

Matthew 7:13
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction <684>, and many there be which go in thereat:

In this verse the Greek word # 684 has been translated “destruction”. But when we search the New Testament we find that this Greek word has more often been translated “perdition”. I wish the KJ translators would have been more consistent in translating this word as perdition, for perdition in the case of vessels refers most of the time to utter destruction, but in the case of people it refers to eternal damnation in Hell.

For example, in John 17:12 the Lord Jesus spoke of Judas Iscariot as the “son of perdition”, which means the “son of Hell”. Earlier, in John 6:70, the Lord Jesus referred to Judas Iscariot when He said, “Have I not chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?”

Another example is found in Romans 9:22, where we read:

Romans 9:22
What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction (or perdition):

Fitted to perdition would have been a better translation. It is from this imperfect translation of the Greek word # 684 in the KJV that the cults have derived that nobody actually goes to Hell, but that on the Last Day the unsaved will go through a process of “destruction”, or “incineration”. Actually, their deviation begins already in Genesis 2:17.

In Genesis 2 we read of God laying down the Law to Adam. Yes, God is laying down the Law. It is not often understood that God was laying down the Law, for when Adam sinned he transgressed the Law of God, for sin is a transgression of the Law, and where no law is there is no transgression. God says here,

Genesis 2:17
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Here again the cults are taking the KJ translation as infallible words. But the words “thou shalt surely die” is not an accurate translation. Literally the Hebrew text reads, “dying thou shalt die”.

“In the day that thou eatest thereof dying thou shalt die”. What God promised Adam came to pass literally. When Adam ate from the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, in his soul existence he died instantly. In his soul he became like as all men come into the world, dead in trespasses and sins; spiritually dead in the sense that he could not do anything that was pleasing to God, and spiritually dead as someone who has come under the wrath of God, deserving to be condemned in Hell. In his body he underwent a process of dying that gradually overtook him and caused him to die at the age of 930 years. But this does not mean the end of Adam’s existence. When God created Adam He created him in the image of God, which implied that in his soul existence he would live forever. And since like begets like, everyone of his posterity was also to live forever in their soul existence. Therefore, those of Adam’s posterity who are deserving to be condemned in Hell, will be given on the Last Day a resurrected body, and will be cast both body and soul in Hell where they will again undergo the process of “dying thou shalt die” in Hell. They will be in a painful process of dying, but will never get to the end, for Hell is forever. God will give them a resurrected body to fulfill His promise of “dying thou shalt die”. It is only in this way that we can understand all the Scripture references to “the second death” that God described in Revelation 19.

And so, does Hell mean the destruction, or incineration, of both body and soul in the Lake of Fire?

Absolutely not, for God says that it is the process of dying thou shalt die in the Lake of Fire. It will last forever.

Let us now consider why God says that “He has no pleasure in the death of the wicked”.

The Death of the Wicked (Ezekiel 33:10-12, John 6:44, Ephesians 1:3-5, 2:1-3, Romans 9:11-13, Psalm 5:5, 7:11, 11:5, John 17:3)

God appointed the prophet Ezekiel to be a watchman unto the house of Israel. He must warn the house of Israel when he sees the enemy coming. But look now at the circumstances when God is giving this command to the prophet. Ezekiel and the entire house of Israel are captives in Babylon. Ezekiel cannot possibly be a physical watchman who stands on the walls of Jerusalem to warn the house of Israel that the enemy is coming. His function must refer to a spiritual watchman:

#1, he must warn the wicked of the house of Israel that the Lord is coming to take revenge;

#2, he must warn those who are resting in the certainty that they are going to heaven since they are sons of Abraham.

Ezekiel is like John the Baptist who must warn the publicans and the harlots that they are wicked, and that they must repent, and he must warn the scribes and Pharisees, who think they are righteous, that one sin is enough to cast them into Hell.

Ezekiel 33:10
Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live?

Ezekiel 33:11-12
Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.

What is the context in which we find the words of verse 11, “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked”?

The context deals with repentance. Verse 10 is a call to repentance, and verse 11 is a call to the wicked for repentance, and verse 12 is a call to the wicked to repent as well as a warning to those who call themselves righteous that they sin not.

Who are these wicked whom God calls to repent?

Well, we can see it in the case of John the Baptist, for these are the publicans and the harlots who know that they are wicked and indeed they turn to repentance. Why did they repent and why did they turn to the Lord Jesus? The Lord tells us why in John 6:44, where the Lord says,

Joh 6:44
No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him.

This was the reason why the publicans and harlots turned to the Lord Jesus, because the Father drew them to Jesus. It was God’s plan to draw those who realize that they are wicked, and He drew them to repent and to come to Jesus, because they were the elect of God who were destined to become saved.

And let us now apply this result from the New Testament to the prophecy of Ezekiel. When God calls the wicked in Ezekiel 33:11 and calls them to repent, God is addressing the people whom He intended to save, and He calls them the “House of Israel”, and He knows that they will repent for they are the elect of God.

Which House of Israel does God have in mind?

God does not have in mind the physical descendants of Jacob, for God is not giving us here a history lesson. The elect of God that God has in mind are all those who were chosen from before the foundation of the world to be in Christ. This is the Israel of God. God says in Ephesians 1:3-5,
Ephesians 1:3-5
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

And this refers to the remnant chosen out of all nations and kindreds and peoples and tongues from the whole earth. This is the true House of Israel whom God is calling in Ezekiel 33:11, so that this passage becomes profitable to this day and age to all the remnant of the earth whom the Father is drawing to Jesus. In other words, God loves them and calls them to repentance. These are the “wicked” of who God says in Ezekiel 33:11, “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked”.

Can you see that we were among the wicked before we became saved?

Ephesians 2:1-2
And you (addressing the Ephesian saints) (hath he quickened), who were dead in trespasses and sins;

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Ephesians 2:3
Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

We were by nature the children of wrath, even as others who never become saved. We were wicked before we became saved, and that was the reason why we were under God’s wrath. And God was addressing us in saying “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked”.

The Bible is very clear on this principle: God loves His elect, and God hates those who are not His elect.
We can see this principle clearly when we consider God’s declaration about whom He loves and whom He hates. We have here in a nutshell the story of Jacob and Esau, of whom much was written in the OT. But here in Rom 9 God added some information that we do not find in the Old Testament. God added this information so that we have a clear picture of what election is.

Romans 9:11-13
For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;

It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger.

As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

This is the added information: God loved Jacob and hated Esau before the children were born, and before they could have done any good or evil. God did not say this to give us a history lesson on Jacob and Esau, but God said this to tell us of the principle that God loves His elect, and God hates those who are not elect. In other words, all whom God elected from before the foundation of the world, according to Ephesians 1:4, are in the category of Jacob, and God loves them. All whom God did not elect from before the foundation of the world, according to Romans 9:13, are in the category of Esau, and God hates them. Let me now take it one step further. When we read about the righteous and the wicked in the Old Testament we must keep this principle in mind: God loves His elect and God hates the non-elect. Thus when we read in Psalm 5,

Psalm 5:5
The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

Who are the foolish and the workers of iniquity?

They are the non-elect. Then we read in Psalm 7:11

Psalm 7:11
God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.

Who are the righteous here?

They are the elect.

Who are the wicked here?

They are the non-elect. We must always base our interpretation on the context, for the context determines what the meaning of a particular word should be. The elect are not called wicked in this verse. Then we read in Psalm 11:5,

Psalm 11:5
The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

The righteous belong to the elect, but the wicked and him that loveth violence belong to the non-elect for they are hated by God. And so, let us now come back to the question that the Lord Jesus asked of the scribes and Pharisees, “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”

The answer is, they cannot escape the damnation of Hell for the Lord calls them “serpents”, and He calls them “vipers”. In other words, they are serpents and vipers because they belong to the master-serpent, Satan, whose clutches have taken a firm hold on these scribes and Pharisees so that they are proclaiming false gospels in the name of God, but actually they speak in the name of Satan. They are continuously blaspheming, for they are bearing the Name of the Lord in vain.

How can they escape the damnation of Hell?

They must escape the clutches of Satan. But without God’s might there would not be the slightest chance that they would want to escape the clutches of Satan, and that they would want to preach the true Gospel. No, the sovereignty of God in choosing to save whom He will from all nations of the world was the farthest from their minds. But not every one of the scribes and Pharisees did belong to Satan. For example there was Nicodemus who came to Jesus by night. Another example was Joseph of Arimathaea who asked for the body of Jesus to give Him a decent burial. These two Pharisees did not agree with the others in the Sanhedrin. And herein we can see that God has His chosen people, the remnant saved by grace, in every class of society, for our God is not a respecter of persons. More importantly, we should think about the question:

How can WE escape the damnation of hell?

We can escape the damnation of Hell if God has drawn us to the Lord Jesus. And the evidence of this is that we believe what the Bible says WHO God is and WHO the Lord Jesus Christ is. The Lord tells us in John 17:3, “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent”.

Let us then remember that this God, this sovereign God, loved us even when we were dead in trespasses and sins, and that He gave His only begotten Son to us for a complete atonement for all our sins. This sovereign God, who loved His Son Jesus Christ more than He loved us, was willing to offer His only Son to make us escape the damnation of Hell. We cannot fathom such great salvation. We only can worship and adore Him. AMEN.
