A Special Place

I was thinking, half jokingly, wouldn’t it be justice if there were a special place in Hell for those that use this phrase and wish this sentiment upon others?

No one gets an air-conditioned apt. Seriously, the phrase devalues Hell. I cannot say whether there will be levels or various degrees of punishment as some denominations theorize, but I can say with certainty the greatest pain of Hell will be loss of Hope. 

Hell is eternal. There remains no hope of Salvation, no Hope in God, No Hope. The author who once penned that the sign over the entrance to Hell reads “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here” could have formed no greater epitaph and warning.

Call upon the Lord and Keep Hope.

1 Chronicles 16:8 KJV Give thanks unto the Lord , call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.

Psalm 20:9 KJV Save, Lord : let the king hear us when we call.

Psalm 55:16 KJV As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me.

Psalm 145:18 KJV The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

Acts 2:21 KJV And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Isaiah 55:6-7 KJV Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: [7] Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord , and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
