Text: 2 Corinthians 5:9-11 "Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. 10. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. 11. Knowing therefore the terror [fear] of the Lord, we persuade men (those that will be there). . ."

(during the Millennium) 26. Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing (not for ever and for ever)."

FRIENDS, FEAR GEHENNA

Luke 12:4-5 "And I say unto you my friends [filov] (his disciples verse 1), Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5.

ADDRESSED TO THE SAVED

And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell [gehenna]."

DENIED ENTRANCE INTO KINGDOM

AGELASTING FIRE

Matthew 18:8-9 "Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life (kingdom of God Mark 9:47) halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting [agelasting, Mat. 25:41] fire. 9. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life (kingdom of God) with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell [gehenna] fire."
