Question received - "Can you escape hell?"
QUESTION ASKED: (From a teenager in North America)
Can you escape Hell?
Like one guy in the bible did when God or Jesus came and got him.
Can you escape hell? Yes if you are still alive.
2 Peter 3:9 New King James Version (NKJV)
9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
Acts 16:30-32 New King James Version (NKJV)
“30 And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
31 So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you a
household.” 32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to
him and to all who were in his house.”

Matthew 25:41 (NKJV)

Revelation 20:10 (NKJV)
10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
No one has gotten out of hell as recorded in the Bible.
That must be from a sci-fi movie like Hell Boy?
You are wise to consult the Bible.
The condemned cannot escape hell in the afterlife.
The Lord gives us a chance to avoid hell now.
The message to you is repent and believe the gospel.
