All the Hell That You Shall Ever Have!

Consider Christian, that all your trials and troubles, calamities and miseries, crosses and losses, which you meet with in this world is all the Hell that you shall ever have!

Here and now, you have your Hell. Hereafter, you shall have your Heaven!

This life is the worst of your condition the best is yet to come!

Lazarus had his Hell first and his Heaven last.  Dives had his Heaven first and his Hell at last.

You have all your pangs, and pains, and throes here that ever you shall have!  Your ease, and rest, and pleasure is yet to come.

Here you have all your bitters your sweets are yet to come!

Here you have your sorrows your joys are yet to come.

Here you have all your winter nights your summer days are yet to come!

Here you have your evil things your good things are yet to come.

Death will put an end to all your sins and to all your sufferings!

Death will be an inlet to those joys, delights, and comforts which shall never have an end!

Who can seriously meditate upon this, and not be silent under God's most smarting rod?

[Thomas Brooks]


John 5:24 ... Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Romans 8:1 ... There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

1 Timothy 6:19 ... Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.❤
