“Reach the World” Lesson #2

  “ Heaven and Hell “

Intro:  Where is the hottest place you have ever been in this world?


  1. James 1:15, Rom 6:23 In all countries, all cultures, in all parts of the world the problem of sin is the same! The Bible tells us that the consequence of sin is death.
    1. Mathew 25:46, Daniel 12:2 Heaven and Hell are real, literal, actual locations that people will live in for all of eternity.
      1. John 14:2-3 The Bible tells us that when we know Jesus as our Savior, we will have a better life here in this world and we will go to Heaven for eternity.
      2. Rev 20:15 The Bible also clearly indicates that when we don’t know Jesus as our Savior we will have needless problems in this world and go to Hell for eternity.
    2. John 14:6, Colossians 1:13 The only way to avoid the punishment of an eternity in Hell is by repenting of our sins and accepting Jesus as our Savior.
  2. Rev 7:9-12, Rev 21:21-27 The Bible describes Heaven as a perfect sinless place where all who know Jesus as their Savior will be in the presence of God and worship Him for eternity.
    1. Rev 21:8, Mathew 25:41 The Bible also describes Hell as an eternal fire, a place of continual unimaginable torment, the location that Satan, his demons, and all who reject Jesus will spend eternity.
      1. John 8:44 Today in our world there are many people who have been deceived by the devil into thinking that Heaven and Hell are not real.
      2. 2 Cor 5:20  It is essential that we as Christians share the reality of Heaven and Hell with all of those we evangelize so they can understand the real consequences of their sin and the absolute urgency and necessity to accept Jesus as their Savior.
    2. Deut 30:19 God has given all of us free will, we each have the freedom to choose between life and death. We can either choose to accept Jesus as our Savior have a better life in this world and go to Heaven for eternity, or we can choose to reject Christ, have needless problems in this world and go to Hell for eternity, what will you choose?                                     #Reachtheworld! 


  1. Why do you think there are so many people today who are deceived by the devil and do not see the danger of sin?
  2. Do you know anyone who does not believe that Heaven and Hell are real? Why is that  thinking so dangerous? How should we respond to those who are deceived in this way?
  3. Why is it essential that we as Christians share the reality of Heaven and Hell with all of those who we evangelize?
  4. What is the only way the Bible gives us to avoid an eternity in Hell? Is there anyone here who has not yet accepted Christ, or who is backslidden? Are you ready to accept Christ today?


End: Pray for those who want to accept Jesus as their Savior and avoid an eternity in Hell, then lead them through the sinners prayer, then take requests.
