100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #11 | with Daniel Whyte III

TEXT: Luke 16:19-31:

People have often wondered whether or not they can take anything with them after they die. The ancient Egyptians buried their dead with items such as food, bowls, and jewelry that they thought would allow the dead to live comfortably in the afterlife. The first emperor of China was buried with statues of over eight thousand soldiers that were supposed to protect him in the afterlife and to ensure that he had people to rule over.

However, the Bible says in Psalm 49:16-17: "Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased; For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away..." The Bible also says in I Timothy 6:7 that "we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out."

My friend, when you leave this world, you can carry nothing material with you. You will not even take the clothes they dress your cold body in at the funeral. When you reach your final destination -- whether it is heaven or hell -- there is only one thing that you will have -- your memory.

Today, I want to briefly share with you three things you will remember in Hell. Allow me to bring to your attention the fact that this passage was actually a story told by Jesus Christ. Yes, the loving, humble Saviour Jesus Christ talked about Hell. In fact, no one ever drew such a picture of Hell as the Son of God. No one else could do it so well, for He alone knows what the future will be. Jesus taught plainly about Hell; just as loving parents will warn their children of punishment to come.
