Dwell With Him

1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or His ear dull, that it cannot hear; 2 but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. ~ Isaiah 59:1-2

We’re promised in the book of Isaiah that the LORD’s hand isn’t shortened that He can’t save us or His ear dull that He can’t hear us. Then we’re hit with a hard pill, but our sins hide us from the face of God so that He doesn’t hear us. In fact, Paul goes as far as to say that sin makes us enemies of God in Romans 5:10. This is what Hell will be like, a place without God.

To die in your sin would be to die without God. If you die without God, then you will be without God forever. You will continue in darkness, the kind of darkness that has no light whatsoever. There isn’t even the hope of Jesus being somewhere in that darkness and you being able to find Him. This darkness is outside the world; it’s outer darkness. So, the Light of the World isn’t in this darkness. There is no hope there. None whatsoever.

Some may say that this is impossible because God is omnipresent; therefore, He is everywhere, but Cain’s punishment was to go away from the presence of God. So, it is definitely possible to be away from God. In fact, look at how Paul says that those who go to Hell will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction away from the presence of God (2 Thessalonians 1:5-10).

This isn’t God’s plan for our lives. God has no delight in the destruction and punishment of the wicked but desires that all repent and come to salvation in Christ Jesus. God’s dwelling place is with mankind, the only creation He died for. The only creation He made in His own image after His own likeness. The only creation He set aside His Godliness for in order to take the form of so that He might save all who believe. God doesn’t want us to burn in Hell; His desire is for us to dwell with Him for all eternity. That’s why He created a way for us to return to Him.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Dwell With Him.
