When the Bible talks about hell, or hades, or sheol, a completely different picture emerges about hell than most people think. We talk a bit about this today when we look at Jonah 2:2, where Jonah goes to hell.
Some say that Jesus talked about hell more than heaven and so we should do the same. Rubbish! Jesus didn’t talk about hell more than heaven. He really didn’t talk about either too much. We don’t threaten or bribe people into the Kingdom of God, but simply lay a grand vision for what life could be like with Jesus.
In Matthew 24:36-44, Jesus provides insight into the causes and events of the flood. It shows that God did not kill people in the flood, but sought to rescue people from the flood that was coming upon the earth as a result of their own sinfulness.
