Than is GOD EVERLASTING SND ETERNAL OR UNTIL HE DIES... THIS HAS BEEN VERY HARD FOR ME TO UNSERSTAND. I DID WONDER WHY CHRIST WAS THE SUBSTITUTE FOR THOSE HE CAME TO SAVE... WHY WASN'T HE STILL IN HELL. SO WHERE IS HELL? It says he went there to take the captive out? And the rich man is there wandering in the fire?

“They said, Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household” (Acts 16:31 WEB).

Hi Michelle,

Jesus Christ isn't our substitute; He is our Lord and Savior. He died for us and rose again from the dead in order to forgive us our sins and empower us to live a life without sin by faith. In other words, to be like He is in the midst of evil. He comes to give us life abundant - to be good leaven and salt in the world.

Jesus called on men to repent and to take up the cross to follow Him. Hell is an internal state of darkness and separation from God due to sin, so it's certainly true to say that Jesus came to deliver us from Hell, which isn't a future possibility but a present reality. We turn from ourselves and the world (including and especially man's religion) and are saved from death and hell by obeying God through faith in Christ.

Read the following (with the links contained in the writings), several times each, very carefully. Here you will find the answers to your questions and more:

Satans Redemption
The Rich Man and Lazarus A Pagan Parable
How One Is Saved
The Good News

The answers, however, can only be received to good benefit through faith in Christ, because He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life:

“But God has brought you into union with Christ Jesus, and God has made Christ to be our wisdom. By Him we are put right with God; we become God's holy people and are set free” (1 Corinthians 1:30 GNB).

Read as much as you can on our site, Michelle, for the cleansing, life-giving Water of God.
